Training was enjoyable tonight. I was expecting a hard training session as I have become acustomed with on Saturday training sessions but Jayson decided that we were going to play football.
Half way through Jayson decided to do a thing where you pair up with someone and then you both take turns in standing in front of your partner and fall backwards so he can catch you.
I teamed up with Phillipe and although he was a little nervous I easily held him every time. But when it came to my turn I just could not do it, I was simply walking backwards into his arms which obviously got a lot of laughs from the other lads.
It was not that I did not trust him it is that I am a misanthropist which means I do not trust people in general, plus we used to do this a lot in PE at school and I always got dropped because they thought it was funny.
At the end we had a big game and I started pushing forward and looking for the ball and taking players on, this is something that I want to add to my game but have never had the belief to do it in matches. I also skilled up and skinned Nathan Deane!
I got the ball and I side-stepped him and went past him. Ok he did not try and chase me but that is not the point! I skilled him up, the first time in four seasons!
I am running the 2018 London Marathon to raise money for Livability UK in memory of my dad. If you can I'd appreciate any donation you can spare. http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/deansaliba
