Lallana and Shaw losing two kilograms per training session in stifling American heat

Basingstoke Gazette: Adam Lallana Adam Lallana

SAINTS stars Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw have been training so hard they are losing around two kilograms per session as England literally warm up for the World Cup in Miami this week.

England are in Florida to experience the same hot and humid conditions they will encounter in Manaus, where they play Italy on June 14.

Even in the cooler climes of Portugal and Burton-upon-Trent, the England management have tried to recreate Amazonian conditions by making the players wear several layers so they sweat more.

And goalkeeper Ben Foster has also revealed that the players have been put through "brutal" sessions on exercise bikes in saunas to improve their fitness.

"When we were in Portugal we wore underarmour, t-shirts, zip up tops and a wet top over that," the England goalkeeper said.

"When it was 22 degrees (centigrade) the lads were losing 2kg in sweat in every training session.

"We are trying to replicate the heat and humidity (of Brazil) "Even at St George's Park last week we trained in the morning, lunch, slept for an hour and then did bike sessions in heat chambers to get ready.

"We've been doing half hour sessions in there. It's brutal, really hard work. But no-one's grumbled or moaned about it, just got on with it."

Roy Hodgson has left no stone unturned in his bid to get the players in the best possible condition for the World Cup.

The England boss has brought a psychiatrist, sports scientists, fitness coaches and a nutritionist along with him to Miami and they will all stop with the team until they are eliminated from the World Cup.

Much to Foster's joy, England will be allowed tomato ketchup and brown sauce - both banned under Fabio Capello - during the tournament.

"We are allowed (ketchup and brown sauce) now," said the West Brom stopper, who will start against Ecuador tonight.

"The food is amazing. There are seven or eight different stations of everything you could want."

It's a pity that Shaw and Lallana couldn't lose the big time attitude at the same time.

It must be 2 kg of brain mass, because apparently they've become so stupid in recent weeks that they're contemplating leaving Saints. Heat does funny things to people.

Hopefully if and when you return to St. Mary's wearing the reptile like stripes or colouring of whatever club has purchased your loyalty (until a better offer comes up) You will have the equivalent weight in body mass kicked out of you.
Best make it a weekly contract - you don't seem to have the decency to fulfill your promises.
I, for one, am disgusted with you especially our so called captain and the adult of the pair. Shaw can be forgiven somewhat because he's just a stupid little boy with a precocious talent . Lallana should have been there trying to steady him not encourage his lack of ethics.

I agree. It is appalling. If they could only look at themselves from the outside they would realise how silly they are. Mrs Lallana needs to give him a good talking to and remind him who he is!
Talk about peer pressure - this is ridiculous.

Good, you two will really fit for pre-season training at Staplewood after you get back. Good Luck and play well.
Lets get one thing straight with you two, you both have three or more years on your contract to go. Saints don't need, or want to sell even if you put in a transfer request. However if we did decide to sell you it would have to be in the interest of both Saints and yourselves.
Therefore if no offers come in to meet the clubs valuation then you a going nowhere for at least another year or two. Your value is high and Saints need to find replacements.
Wait until the new manager is appointed, give him a season and review the situation next year.

I can't see too much wrong with your post in English terms. I agree about the ridiculous abuse on here about the Board and players. Some Saints fans are being fickle indeed. Totally unacceptable in my opinion. Saintly West End might state you need to learn English but they need to learn some manners... I am a Saints supporter and season ticket holder for many years.

Don't speak to me like that please. You obviously want to fast-track your way to success at Liverpool but why don't you ask your team to start an academy - if they know what that is.

The dreams you have for Liverpool are also the dreams many fans have for their clubs. When Liverpool were on their way to becoming a big club in the 60s and 70s, how many people said to the emerging Liverpool players: Why don't you leave and better yourself.

You, my friend, have a lot to learn about life.

@LFCalways - what did you fantastic Liverpool fans do a couple of years ago when your fantastic captain decided he wanted to better himself by making it known that he wanted to go to Chelsea. Oh yes, hassled him, insulted him and made thinly veiled threats towards his family. Don't slate Saints fans for not wanting our captain to leave and feeling slightly let down with everything that appears to be said in the press when your lot did far worse...
