Marcos' pre-season diary

First team coach Marcos Alvarez gives us the inside track on pre-season preparations.

Marcos will give us the rundown on what the lads are up to on the training ground as they get ready for the big one - the Barclays Premier League kick-off at Middlesbrough on August 16.

Days 20-23, July 22-25, conclusion of training camp in Spain

"TUESDAY was our final day with three sessions. We started with sprints in the morning, specific to endurance over 150 metres. We then went to the gym and it was into football on Tuesday evening.

"Wednesday and Thursday were all about football. We've worked hard for 20 days and we now need to transfer that to work with the ball and then into the matches.

"We were happy with the fitness showed in the game against Hercules. We are looking for the players to step up their minutes in games and I thought they responded well to going behind.

"Overall, the training camp has been a positive experience in terms of our fitness aims - the lads have trained very hard - and the spirit of the team."
