The BBC report that Man Utd have set a date for the return of Alan Smith and that he hsa even begun to start jogging again.
Most of you either won’t know who Alan Smith is (or some won’t even care), but this story brings a ray of light to an otherwise ordinary day.
In February 2006, Alan (a former Leeds United player) broke his leg and dislocated the ankle of the same leg at the same time – at 22, it was believed the injury may have ended his career.
Imagine at 22 being told you can no longer carry out your job…
My thoughts go out to Robert Scoble too in this difficult time for him and his family.
