I got word today from my finnish agent that my trial has been extended for another week. Apparently the coach was happy with what he saw in training, but discouraged by the game. That pretty much syncs up with how I felt about my performance. Honestly I think this team needs a player that is a speed option and has a real desire to take responsibility and score goals. Currently there is no real speed option and only one player who scores goals. I can use this week to show my value, but in reality everything is going to come down to the match on Saturday. We play HJK, the reigning Veikkausliiga champions.
Other than that there’s really not much to report. I did literally nothing today. This morning I went to the pharmacy, but of course it was closed. In fact, the only things open on Sundays in this town are the church, bar and grocery store. I’m not saying that as a brief listing that includes more things; those are literally the only three things open. Want pizza? Sorry. Unless you want to get one from the grocery store.
Not that you care, but for the last three days my allergies have been going crazy and I have no idea why. Normally this happens when the leaves start to come back on the trees, but there are two feet of snow outside and no leaves whatsoever. I can’t imagine there’s any pollen here either. If you have any idea as to what is going on with me I’d be happy to hear it.
I’ve got to make this week count! There’s not much time to get a contract and the options shrink every day.
