Shaw's diary: Scott and Jesse are the benchmark
Hi everyone, I hope you’re all keeping well and staying safe during lockdown. Things have certainly been pretty hectic in our house, as we’ve got our baby boy Reign keeping us busy.
"My favourite part of the day is when my son, Reign, wakes up first thing in the morning. I wake up and see him smiling back at me. That’s just the best thing in the world. It makes it so easy to get up and start the day."
We were doing core and leg strength exercises because hopefully in the next few weeks we might be edging closer to a return to training. If we’re all at similar fitness levels then we’ll be able to get the ball rolling quicker when we get back to the training ground. Normally we see everyone every day, but obviously now that isn’t the case, so it’s nice to catch up, see some faces and have a few jokes with everyone.
"It’s unbelievable how fast Scott's 5k time is. I put it into the treadmill to check the speed, and it was some ridiculous level, just a flat-out sprint. Unbelievable."
"People always think I’m joking, but one of my hardest games ever was against Victor Moses. He was really quick, direct, strong. I’ve played against Bale, Messi and Hazard, but I always remember Moses."
