Atlantic crossing

6 February 2013

Bobby's injury update American style!

Lions physio Bobby Bacic flew out after last weekend's home game with Hull City to join up with skipper Paul Robinson in America as Robbo rehabilitates following surgery.
So rather than bring us an injury report from the training ground in Bromley, Bobby has the very latest from across the Atlantic.

"Paul Robinson is still in Philadelphia after his operation as planned," he told the website. "Robbo was originally accompanied by Steve Brown our Assistant Physiotherapist who had the privilege of watching the operation.
Steve also liaised with the rehab staff who have been put in place to look after Robbo.
I flew out after the Hull match via an emergency landing in Goose Bay Canada where we waited seven hours on the runway for a new plane to come and collect us.
I wouldn't have been surprised to see Chris Bonnington or a polar bear arrive first, as it was the most snow laden place I have ever seen!

When I finally arrived in Philadelphia Paul was looking good and had started gentle early stage exercises. We had instructions to do daily walks so, as the photos show, Robbo turned down a lift in an unsuitably coloured taxi and then you can also see him at the top of the steps which Sly Stallone ran up in the first Rocky movie.
Robbo will stay for the rest of the week as we only want him flying after his swelling has decreased.

He is in the excellent hands of Jim McCrossin, the Athletic Trainer from the Philadelphia Flyers Ice Hockey team who will work with Robbo on his continuing rehab.

Our thanks go out to him as well as Richard Buckland from British Airways."
