Bloody hell fire, they probably burn off more than 2000+ calories a day. Plus Joao needs a bit more meat on him anyways. 

4,000 at least

Yeah mine was literally a low stab in the dark. Those sweets will barely touch the sides of anyone who is training properly.

Jelly sweets = instant energy... have you got kids?

Good for quick fix but after it runs out it causes a big drop in energy.... Kind of like Heroin.

 

That's why the timing of when you force feed them to your kids is crucial !

 Eye witness accounts from the dressing rooms at Leicester City and Sheffield United, among others, confirm that pro footballers have resorted to eating babies for pre-match fuel.

WTF:

Watched the Leicester City players stock up on Gummy Bears in EMA before a European game. They did lose 4-0 though.

They’ve been doing this for ages. The players take turns in buying all that for the group. 

 

Like posts above say, barely touch the sides. If they just ate chicken and rice they’d be weak as pish :laugh:

Nah this is not a good sign at all. Speaking from a sports science perspective, there are many better fuelling strategies. For example highly branched cyclic dextrin mixed with water would absorb quicker and offer a much better uptake than all of these sweets, which are not pure sugar, but also containing gelatin too. A pro footballer during weekly training should be able to hit his nutritional requirements without needing sweets, however, if they fancy eating them go for it. Just a bit odd and dated our club still buys in to this.

 

Sports science at Wednesday may have come on a lot in recent years, but it's still lacking in comparison to top championship teams.

From Joao’s Instagram (at the training ground). Didn’t think the club would let them eat stuff like this (and it wasn’t just this Chocolate and other sweets also)

Reminds me of the time Kivo was going batshit crazy because the players had a pizza on the coach on way home from a game once.

 

That was funny

What a weird comment. 

 

Making such sweeping statements about a field you have little to no experience in is a sign of low intelligence too.

Gelatin is for the joints... Alarmingly I think these types have pork gelatin. Maybe we should insist on pork free sweeties...
