Well, it's been a few weeks and the work has surpassed all expectations.
I'm writing a short update on daybreak, while it's quiet.
The interaction with all the other staff has be really good and have welcomed me into the team.
It has been an eye opener to say the least, actually being part of something that has a bearing on professionals and those that follow. The respect and welcome we get everywhere! I've been so far has been something that I have never taken into account all the time I've been watching professional sports, what it takes to get a professional team ready to play, the planning, logistics and knowing what to be ready for before, during and after.
There is tremendous banter and support, everyone creates a teamwork atmosphere and especially on match days there is no discerning voice or anything that will rock the team's objective.
Of course, winning or losing has a different bearing on attitude and determination, even drawing can have both affects depending on who you are playing and how it affects the standards the manager is setting.
The amount of equipment needed is unbelievable, especially all the physiotherapy stuff.
At some places you would need pack horses to get all of it into the dressing room and sometimes you can't get it in!
Another update soon!
