We are now in place in Newcastle and charging before the game tomorrow. I am fit again and back in the squad and it feels good. The many flight and bus trips isn’t always the funniest, but this bus trip was a pleasure to be on because now I’m finally fit and ready again. I hope to play tomorrow and will do everything possible to make a good figure. It is obviously an exciting match, Newcastle is good but I think we have a good enough team that we come here to get us a result. My new side mate on the bus is Dann the man after Brett Emerton went, I hope he can do as good an effort as Brett. This means of course that it is always fresh fruit and drinks around, and that he keeps the spot nice and clean! ;)

Not everybody is happy about their medical staff in the Premier League, but I can tell you that I am very happy about mine, they are indeed one of the best in the whole Premier League.
