A classic line from a classic song and something we’d all appreciate at this time of the year.
The winter months are, when it comes to training, the hardest of all.
The wind, rain, snow and ice are enough to test the patience of a saint.
For the foreign players, in the Manchester United shock, I’d imagine the change in climate is a real culture shock.
Of course, there is the option to move indoors but I can’t help but think it is restrictive when it comes to practising actual game-play.
One option, to escape the ravages of the weather this time of the year, is the winter break in the sun.
It is something all the top teams, if their fixture scheduling allows, like to do, even if it is just for a couple of days.
Nothing beats training with the warm sun easing away those winter blues.
Therefore, it’s not too surprising to read, in the news vehicle, the Daily Mail, that Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is planning another warm-weather training trip ahead of what we anticipate will be yet another fiercely contested and highly competitive fixture against Liverpool.
Hopefully, a break in the sun will give the squad the impetus to continue the fine run of results since Ole Gunnar Solkajaer took over the managerial hot-seat.
