Then the 45-year-old focused on the environment. Now, when Southampton travel away from home, the hotel is often booked for two nights rather than one. On the first night, club staff arrive and clean the already pristine rooms. They vacuum up every particle of dust that might cause illness or carry a bug.
Then bespoke mattresses are placed on each bed, tailored to each player. The duvets, the pillow cases and the sheets are washed and ironed by the club, using the same washing powder and the same methods. Wherever the players are, their bed smells and feels the same.
The same applies to food, with the club chef travelling ahead of the squad to each and every hotel. Marginal gains were everything to Cortese.
On the field, the whole team, rather than just the defence and goalkeeper, were awarded clean sheet bonuses in order to promote a team ethic, rather than any division.
Liverpool have announced a multi-million-pound global partnership with the American company Dunkin' Donuts. The managing director, Ian Ayre, said the deal will help the club to compete financially with their major rivals.
"We're delighted to be joining forces with Dunkin' Brands, one of the world's most iconic names. Dunkin' Donuts will be our official coffee, tea and bakery provider and Baskin-Robbins will be our official ice cream provider, we welcome both to the LFC family," said Billy Hogan, Liverpool's chief commercial officer."
Does 7M quid seems a lot for Shane Long?
Seems kind of high to me, but not as high as the 6MM they paid for Jelavic.
However, instead of buying a retread from the British Isles, teams would look for someone in France or Spain.
I'm always confused by this. With the success that Bony and Remy have had, you would think that going into the Eridiviese or Ligue 1 talent pools would be a better solution than the Long's or Holt's of the world.
If Mourinho hasn't sold his soul to the devil then no one has.
Bentaleb looks like he's struggling today. Put in Paulinho for Bentaleb and Vertonghen for Chirches and we may have a team that can challenge. Bentaleb looks like he's struggling today. Put in Paulinho for Bentaleb and Vertonghen for Chirches and we may have a team that can challenge.
For now, it is. We'll see how it works out long term. And, of course, we should have had both!
Too bad for those of us without BeIn.
Bein is that there is such a thing as too much Ray Hudson.
2. Everton...shoulda scored two in the first half today. I watched intently that first half before hitting the bike back home, missing the second half. Baines' dive was awful, Lukaku makes space at a world-class level, but the finishing, as FM always says, "was poor throughout." Oviedo should have scored at least once there. I'm thinking the wearing of almost Norwich yellow jinxed them, but more seriously I think they were one broken Ross Barkley toe from the three points today.
My fandom for Atletico is such that I was able to actively root against Barca scoring a second in Valencia yesterday.
Does anyone understand the Guarin for Vucinic swap from Inter's perspective?
What I have learned from Bein is that there is such a thing as too much Ray Hudson. Although on one of the Messi goals this week, his call was "Like a beautiful werewolf!" and I nearly forgave him for everything.
It's too bad MLS is so slavish to FIFA rules instead of tweaking things here and there to try things out. Since we have fewer sacred cows about the sport here we're kind of the perfect place for a little experimentation about the sport.
