Charlie Daniels is still raising a smile

It was great to read on the AFCB official website that Charlie Daniels is doing well in his recovery programme and has started work on the AlterG running equipment. It sounds like he is still a few weeks of bing able to run completely unaided but he has had stem cell work as well as an operation to put his dislocated knee back in shape.
Charlie is fighting back.
I admire the grit and determination of players to get back on their feet after such horrendous injuries. Having to lay down on your back for two weeks is no fun and he must have been watching AFCB games knowing that he could do little to help AFCB's faltering season. If AFCB players need a reason to try and stay up, they only have to look at Charlie Daniels and what he has been through. Keeping his and the team's Premier League status would be a great celebration.
The left back position has remained problematic for Eddie Howe will Daniels' absence all season. He might have expected Lloyd Kelly to feature more often but he has also been racked by injury and while Diego Rico was in favour for most of the season, switching to Adam Smith has still not given AFCB many clean sheets.

It's in this light that we can see the true value of Charlie Daniels and how important he has been over the recent seasons on the left for AFCB. It can be no surprise that Ryan Fraser has found form hard to find without the support of Charlie making his dynamic runs and while we won't see Charlie I suspect until the end of the year, if he heels well and the coronavirus subsides, it will be great to see him playing again one day. Charlie is one of the players whose contracts is up in June, but AFCB will surely extend the contract after all he has been through in the last two seasons.

Please not that I have made a price drop for the paperback version of Eddie Had A Dream which has been cut from £13.49 to £9.99 from 20 March 2020. Hopefully, more fans will have the chance to read it now and 15 per cent will still be sent to Julia's House Childrens Hospice, which has received more than £100 from sales already.
