The weekend off - 07/11/2003
Itís been an interesting few weeks - from reserve team football, the loan move back to the Vetch Field, and now the weekend off! Tell you what though, itís good to back in first team action and Iím enjoying myself - and my football. As a defender itís great to keep clean sheets, so with a 1-0 win and 0-0 draw Iíve been happy with my personal performances. I also played in the LDV Vans Trophy on Tuesday night; a 2-1 home defeat by Southend Ė although I wouldnít read too much into that result, we played with just about a reserve team and rested everyone whoíll be playing tomorrow in the Cup.
I got the news than Man U werenít letting me play in the Cup, in some respects this is disappointing. I came here to play in the first team and just after settling back in, Iím told Iíve the weekend off. On the other hand itís a bit of boost, United obviously think that I could play a part in the competition, so if this comes off, then Iíll be in line to make my debut in the red shirt!
Having said all that, Iím just going to get on with my own game. I canít control what happens at Old Trafford, but I can do my best in training and on the pitch Ė hopefully Iíll get recognition from that. You may be surprised that Iím back at Swansea Ė especially after what Iíd said on previous web site articles. But Brian Flynn approached Sir Alex Ferguson and then I was asked if I fancied it. I loved my time here last season and to be honest, if both clubs are happy for the loan to take place, then Iím more than happy to be here. I canít tell you how long Iíll be in Swansea because I genuinely donít know. It might be a month, two months, or longer, all I can say is that I intend to enjoy it!
