Saturday 6 January 21; I have half recovered from Thursday, as I told my nephew Billy yesterday, I feel it these days, but although I have always maintained the body is the most amazing machine beating any other, the punishment it can take and recover always astounds me. Not just at a football level in those days of three matches in four days with less 12 hours to recover, and that means sleep, but the
