I suppose they deserve a holiday after putting up with Jose for 2 and a half years.
It won't be a holiday, according to Solskjaer. It will be intense training and preparation for the Spurs match.

I thought Greenwood and Gomes missed the Reading game through injury? Interesting that they are fit enough to go on the training camp.

It is great for all 4 to be involved.

I don't recall them ever making a clarifying statement on why a player is not with the squad on a training camp. Have no problem with it, just wondering. I got worried for a few seconds when receiving a notice from the club app.

If memory serves me right, last time we did this we came home and got thumped by someone...

Ole has mentioned working on fitness a few times in his interviews/press conf. I got the impression he was implying the team are not as fit s they could be from training under JM? Evidence was clear we were getting outrun in games pre Ole - and too much standing around on the training ground whilst instagram investigations are conducted.

Carrick, Jones and a few of the staff were playing golf today at the EGC, I played 9 holes with them
Jones plays golf exactly like he plays footy, complete with the gurning. Weird
Some funny chat about Jose, not much other gossip though

Not much direct stuff, think they’re too professional, so odd sentences where the meaning was clear although I’ve put brackets for the unsaid bits; how great things are now (he’s gone), how Paul is loving OT (again), working on attack (more). Seem to love working with Ole too

I don’t think through Christmas they do “any” running, it’s all about recharging batteries and staying injury free.

Now we’re back to 1 game a week they can start running more and upping fitness levels.

I do think we look short of fitness compared to some teams like city/pool/Tottenham. Some of their players seem to run non stop without fatigue.

Wish they'd make it into a reality tv show on MUTV with cameras in the house and everything. Lukaku would always be raiding the fridge! Pogba dancing around!
Be like a kid's sleepover. Lukaku and Shaw eating Celebrations under the table while Pogba and Lingard are doing stupid dances. Herrera running round nipping people.

Why do we need warm-weather training in the middle of bloody winter?
