Pic Special: Wet, wet, wet...

It was hardly the Costa del Tyneside on Thursday morning as United's squad were put through their paces at a sodden St. James' Park.

Heavy rain may have fallen in the city but it failed to dampen the Magpies' spirits ahead of their Barclays Premier League home clash against Liverpool on Saturday (5.30pm kick-off).

Captain Fabricio Coloccini continued to step up his return from a long-term back injury, while Cheick Tiote - who missed last weekend's draw at West Brom - was also involved.

Goalkeeper Steve Harper was the hero of the session, making save after save to deny his colleagues, but one man who wasn't getting many plaudits was assistant manager John Carver, with the players deciding his refereeing was poor to say the least.

Capturing it all for this exclusive gallery of images was Club Photographer Ian Horrocks.
