This week’s been ruled by the cold really… The weather’s been firmly in the minus column and we lost the race to host the world cup to a country that is more avidly known for it’s cold temperatures, I mean who really wants to spend their summer in Russia? I must say I was disappointed that we didn’t manage to win the bid considering we are in my opinion so ready to host a World Cup and put on a showcase of football in some of the most atmospheric and famous stadiums in the world.

Our game against Burnley was postponed due to the snow so the lads managed to get a break from playing which I think will stand them in good stead over the busy christmas period.

I saw my surgeon for my final check up this week and he’s delighted with my progress as am I and the physio’s and has given me the go ahead to return to training within a 6 week period from now. Having had my operation back in mid april that will mean that I will have had 9 months out and a good and full rehabilitation programme. I can’t wait to play football again, it gives me an excited knot in my stomach when I think of how close I am again.

With our christmas party around the corner it’s time to get the fancy dress outfit… It was drawn out of a hat and I have to go as something beginning with the letter ‘L’. There’s one or two of the lads that won’t need to dress up because they turn up in fancy dress every day.

Anyway, gym time for me so I’ll leave you to it… Stay Positive!
