My first day was one to remember. I arrived at mellwood for my first training session, call me wierd but the morning fog and dew seem to give liverpool more of an atmosphere. I parked my car just beside the next door before getting out and locking up, I took my first few steps into the Reception of the training complex, it was certainly well looked after. It was like it had just been built...
Receptionist: "Good afternnon sir,how are you today?"
John: "Not bad! Yourself?"
receptionist: "Very well thank-you sir, would you like me to take you to mr.Ayre's office?"
John: "No thanks miss...?"
Receptionist: "Alex, Alex Blood sir."
John: "Please, do call me john!"
I walked away, down the corridoor. She certainly seemed nice I thought to myself, I caught myself day dreaming as i nearly managed to walk into Ian's office door...
Ayre: "Ah, john you're here. its great to finally be able to start work with you, how are you?"
John: "I am well, thank-you. how are you?"
Ayre: "I am also well, but thats not why we're here."
John: "No, right you are then. Better get started, Ill go meet the team."
I went to walk out of the door before an assertive Ian Ayre stated...
Ayre: "Oh and John,before you go...Please, watch out for Suarez, he can be a tricky one as you may know."
John: "oh dont worry Ian, I know my way round this guy. I've plans for him."
And with that i took my leave toward the training pitch, there they were huddled around pascoe, you could make them all out through the windows in the corridoor...
John: "Good day lads! Im gunna make this quick, for those of you that dont know, I am John Barnes, I have taken this club to glory meany a time and I plan to do so again, but i need your help. I cant do it on my own, who's with me?"
Gerrard: "Aye, Im with ya...we're all bloody with ya! who's up to take over europe ey?"
Suarez: "I am! I want to stay here!"
Agger: "Thats nice to here luis, I am to stevie!"
Team: "We're all in!"
John: "Good, now for today, pascoe will take training I am busy with other issues, its the transfer window its always busy...goodbye lads ill pop back out in a while!"
My first day, it was pretty much over, nothing else happened of much importance although after this day I realised I was in for one bumpy ride, but I was ready...
