From Dichio’s blog

After a hard afternoon yesterday where we practiced only once , we were back to our normal double session today. Yesterday was the dreaded 3 on 3’s in a tight area working at an intense pace and pressuring the person in control of the ball. We do numerous reps of these at selected time periods with rest time in between the 3 minute games. But no matter how hard these 3 on 3’s are, i know that all of the players would much rather do this hard work with the ball and goals than run stupidly for long periods around a track, pitch or forest!!  Back to today where this morning we broke up into 4 teams of 6 and played a mini tournament against eachother. 3 times through and the guys were spent after putting in lots of effort, even on the training ground there is lots of hustling and arguing between the lads as no-one wants to be on the losing team. Also adding to the fire is the dubious refereeing of some of our coaches, there response is that we should be used to it now while playing in the MLS!!!   Our new young goalkeeper Stefan Frei has impressed me alot already, and being on my team today i got an even closer look at him. He was superb today and really makes himself big on 1 on 1 situations, earning the nickname ‘Spider-Man’ already. Another guy that looks the business even though his only been with us a couple of days now is ‘Pablo Vitti’. He does not speak much english , but you can tell he’s a class act. He has great feet and movement and can turn on sixpence sharply. I look forward to seeing him in game action tomorrow against New York. It was also good to see my old mate Marv come and join us today after his exploits with the US national team. They got a great win against Mexico last night, so he was a pretty happy guy today.
