Thread: Poor pre season preparation strikes again

  1. #1

    Poor pre season preparation strikes again

    Now I would consider myself an intelligent bloke but I'm still not sure who is in charge of fitness.

    A new fella I believe has been appointed but Warnes says "I am doing this and not this etc" suggesting he is still actively involved and probably in charge.

    We have failed to do what was needed and introduce a modern fit for purpose fitness and physiotherapy set up.

    Lots of people on here see Warney as a fitness guru presumably because he rides a bike to work but the evidence suggests otherwise.

    The last two seasons it was there for all to see...We looked the least fit and energetic side in the Championship..Who was in charge?...Paul Warne....Who appears to be in charge now?....Paul Warne!

    In the modern sporting world this area is such an important area and it seems that yet again we have missed the boat.

    We need a team of fitness experts experienced in the fitness and training of elite athletes and with expertise in the latest science of fitness.

    Wearing a heart monitor in training is not sufficient.

    Have we got the above?...I doubt it...Why do we continue with our old fashioned penny pinching approach to preparation instead of putting in an infrastructure that would be a prerequisite for success?

    I know we will get the usual fishing nonsense and you are destroying this site but only from people who cannot answer any of the questions posed.

    If we keep telling ourselves that we are little old fashioned Rotherham then that is self fulfilling and little old Rotherham is where we will stay.

    Kempo I know you like your rants but can you please just keep to the point and keep these things short in the future.

    First I will point out I have no idea what is in this new building at roundwood so I can't comment about what we do or do not have.
    However I will say judging from the size of roundwood I don't think it's big enough to hold all the equipment training grounds generally need. That being said it is still a huge improvement to what we used to have. Also your talking about hiring at least 5 professionals which I'm not sure we could afford without dipping into the player wage funds.

    And last of all I really don't see how anyone can call a club with new training facilities and new stadium and youth program old fashioned.

    The future is bright the future is red and white.

    Kempo how can anyone take you seriously you've gone from encouraging everyone to leave the site to the other week red carding yourself and saying you're not coming on to coming back on and attention seeking again.
    I'm not sure if you were bullied st school or you just seek attention but honestly your insecurities for a grown man are pitiful to be honest I do pity you.
    Maybe one day you will find yourself in a place where you can relax and not seek everyone's attention.
    Good luck you poor thing.

    Kempo are you sure it's right Utd your on about. A team of fitness experts, your going to make do with Warney & Barker.

    See what Richie Barker brings to the training, by all accounts players enjoy his training methods.

    Players with the right attitude will be able to get there fitness levels up to the required standard no problem on the training facilities we provide.

    One word to sum the 'doc' up...pathetic....

    Just when you think that Kempo can never dig himself into a deeper hole......



    ......he always exceeds everyones expectations

    Usual abusive posts from the usual suspects who are incapable of understanding and discussing in a reasonable way.

    Most people would agree that in the last two seasons we were the worst looking side with regard to fitness.

    The person in charge of fitness was Paul Warne..

    The person who from his comments would appear to be in charge of fitness now is......Paul Warne!

    It seems that this is not worthy of discussion but only merits personal abuse from the usual crowd who have virtually taken over the message bord by bullying anyone with a different opinion.

    We will see what transpires but so far a team called Parkgate managed to score 2 against us.

    That is a fact and the first bit of evidence to use when formulating an opinion about our future performances albeit a small piece of the evidential jigsaw to come.

    Cue further abuse!

    I would have used a different word. Big deal. South Grove or RGS?

    My vision of you and your posts.....



    Interesting that you feel that there is a space after a backslash, yet no space before it. Yes, I can stoop as low as you can, when pushed. Rejoice, you have a little bit of attention.

    We can only train the players we have to run at a certain pace or attain a certain level of stamina.
    This will be finite and different for each player (Pringle / Arnason vs P Warne as a player)
    If you want quick players coupled with skill then they cost a lot of money (Dicko).

    Unfortunately the player with the least amount of skill, stamina and pace is coining a sizeable proportion of the budget.

    ooops..interjected right into the middle of a family squabble

    Hey....no problem, I'm cool and considered and a lifelong Miller through thick and thin. The thing that I don't get is why some "fans" only ambition is to have constant swipes at the club while offering their expert opinion based on zero experience.

    I think your being a bit of a idiot Kempo no offence but you are forgetting a few important details.

    1st last season we took way too long in appointing a new manager so things were always going to look bad having no one to oversee the players condition. You can say warne was still there but he was only a back man who had no authority.

    2nd our training facilities were a joke. I'm not saying we have Everton training grounds but we have more than a few plastic cones in a tin can now.

    3rd if you really can't see what warne did in that parkgate you need to go to specsavers. Look at where the goals came from, they all came in the first half in a team that had ball fisher purrington and that new player we just got. Yet all the midfield and strikers were all experienced. Then in the second half he put in our experience defenders which didn't concede a goal and a questionable attack out.

    If you still don't get it let me brake it down for you like this.

    1st half training attack
    2nd half training defence

    IT WAS A TRAINING SESSION

    We will see.

    Not long before the first league game.

    As a lifelong supporter and season ticket holder I hope I am wrong but it looks to me that it's football on a shoestring and the players that we have been in the market for don't suggest to me that we will be anywhere near a side returning to the Championship.

    We will see who is correct...I called it spot on last season and the response was exactly the same as on this thread now from our resident experts.

    I will leave it for a few days so the 5 or 6 people who have taken over the board can continue with their utter nonsense posts and abuse anyone who disagrees.

    Those of us who actually go to games to form an opinion will be able to judge if we have acquired youthful players with power and athleticism as the manager promised.

    Spoilt brat Kempo people disagree so he spits dummy out cries fouls of abuse.
    what a sad sack.

    One of the things I learned very quickly from reading Kempo's posts is that he is never consistent, never logical, never self deprecating, never humble, never deferential, never unpretentious, never modest, never unassuming, never unostentatious and most importantly never, ever wrong.

    Kempo I seriously doubt that you are a life long season ticket holder. Why would anyone who's as negative as you buy a season ticket for a club he thinks are unworthy of anybody's money. I have read every post you have put (I know waste of time) and not one of them have anything nice to say about the club. So why would anyone who can't see anything good about a football club he supports buy a season ticket.

    The crazy thing is the contradiction in what you say. You just said in this your a life long season ticket holder that means unless your age is only 4 years old you went to millmore, which was a dump. In a few previous posts you say how our club is on decline HELLO new stadium and training grounds. Honestly with what we just came from to what we are now I find it laughable you can say we are on decline.

    For those who go to games and form an opinion Hello Kempo seasons not started yet or did you think parkgate was in league 1?

    This is just an idea mind you but how about you save it all for after the transfer window shuts and watch a few league games to actually form this opinion of your properly, because right now there's no evidence to indicate it being a good bad or decent season.
