Fab move by Delph.
ONE bright spot for me this week was Fabian Delph's England debut - I thought he showed a lot of promise.
But I was surprised to read Delph (above) say that behind his improvement was a decision to only have a week's summer break and then employ a personal trainer, so he was really fit to start pre-season.
I don't know what senior pros he's worked with, but that should be the way all ambitious players conduct themselves every year.
It was certainly what I did when I was trying to drag every last ounce of a playing career out of my fairly limited ability.
