Some good news on the medical front: George Lapslie has revealed how new physio Danny Murphy dealt with his hamstring problem, enabling him to return to first team action (please note that Murphy is not the Onanist sometimes seen commenting on football on television): Thanks new physio for ending hamstring hell
Lapslie also revealed that his partner Ruth is pregnant. He is happy to pay the fine for putting the ball under his shirt. Footballers are able to have children at an age that was once regarded as the norm and is much easier to cope with, both then and when you have teenagers in your thirties.
Lapslie's enthusiasm and energy are a joy to behold on the pitch. In some ways he is a junior version of Darren Pratley, he gives the opposition so much trouble.
Lapslie is a grounded player and does not underestimate the size of the task ahead: 'We’ll keep grafting to try and get even higher. It’s going to be a slog and we’ve got to come together and try and get us safe.'
