Craig Gordon is a 32 year old Scottish shot-stopper who has been affected by injuries on numerous occasions during his playing career.  The first top European club that Craig Gordon joined was Sunderland as he signed with the English team in August of 2007 and penned a 5 year long contract but he had to miss out from several months of playing time due to a knee injury and this allowed Simon Mignolet in becoming the first choice goal-keeper of Sunderland.

Knee injuries have not been the only physical condition that he has suffered from as he also broke his arm with Sunderland which forced him to miss out from the start of the 2010-11 Premier League season.

His ongoing problems with injuries have also constrained the Scottish footballer on making a limited amount of performances in the international stage for his country.

Going through rehabilitation is not something new for Craig Gordon as he has gone through a few surgeries in order to heal the injuries that he has sustained and the experienced goal-keeper has even stated that at one point in time his kids even asked him what did he do for a living, since he was out of action for so long.

‘’They have stood by me and they have supported me for two whole years when I wasn’t working.When I was concentrating fully on getting back into football, it must have been a hard thing for them to have to deal with.’’

“They were so young they 
never really knew what daddy did for a living. They were a big part of my inspiration to get back to top-level football. I wanted to show them what their daddy used to do!’’ Celtic’s Craig Gordon said. Continue reading Craig Gordon is a 32 year old Scottish shot-stopper

The first half of this season of the Premier League has been unexpected to say the least, with a number of clubs rising to the top section of the English League standings. Southampton, West Ham United and Swansea City all have managed to snatch a spot in the top 5.

The story and journey of Swansea City in this season of the Premier League has been a peculiar one as the chairman of the club Huw Jenkins sacked an experienced coach Michael Luadrup, and replaced him with someone who had never managed a club in his entire career Garry Monk.

Garry Monk had been the captain of the club for over 6 years but he had never taken up a managerial position ever and this even the own supporters and fans of Swansea City were concerned as if Monk was the appropriate man to take charge of the club and guide them through the Premier League.

The season of Garry Monk and Swansea City started off in superb form as they overcame Manchester United with a scoreboard of 2-1 and the latest Premier League match of Swansea City was also a positive one as the club had to travel over to the Emirates Stadium and play in the home stadium of Arsenal and defeat the team of Brendan Rodgers with an unforeseen scoreboard which displayed 2-1 at the end of it all.

Even the transfer activities and decisions of Garry Monk has favored Swansea City in a huge way as Lukasz Fabianski and Jefferson Montero are some of the signings that Monk has eagerly signed and both players have been going through a superb form.

Chico Flores was a player of Swansea City that was believed to have caused a lot of unnecessary problems or drama in the dressing room of the Premier League club and the Spanish defender was sold on a quick manner and it does seem to have brought a sense of harmony in the team.

The first major trophy in the history of Swansea City was earned after Swansea defeated Bradford City with a score of 5-0 but if things continue on going on as it has been doing in the recent few months, it seems like more major trophies will be earned by the Premier League club which is going through a sensational season under the guidance of Garry Monk.
