AFC Ealing played a friendly on Thursday and within the first three minutes of the game I went into a tackle and twisted my knee, the pain was so bad that every time I ran or touched the ball the vibrations went to my knee and made the pain even worse.
Like an idiot I tried to grit my teeth and suck up the pain but it got worse and it got to the point where I could barely walk let alone run. The pain went away as I got the train home but when I woke up the next morning my knee had swollen up and I had to walk around like I had a lump of wood down my trouser leg.
It is now Tuesday afternoon and the swelling is still there and the pain is especially still there.
I was contemplating contacting Jayson and telling him that I could not make training this week but last night I got a phone call from Kerry saying we had another friendly on Sunday. This is our third friendly and the last two we only had about 8 players turn up and we had to ask the opposition to lend us some of their players. How embarrassing is that?!
If I tell Jayson that I can not make it to training I know for sure that I will try and play the game on Sunday even if I am 5% fit and I know that Jayson will think I am skiving off.
