Here's a bit about the incident. Shankly would've loved his attitude.

AS A CLUB doctor for more than 15 years, Dr John Orchard has put joints back into place on AFL grounds and stapled up gashed heads during state of origin rugby league matches.

But the bravest act he's seen on a football field was on one freezing afternoon down at Geelong -- when, clearly in agony, Sydney Swan Daryn Cresswell smacked his own dislocated kneecap back into place.


As for individual feats of bravery, however, Dr Orchard needed no time to name Cresswell's effort.

"That's about as tough as it gets I think in terms of football experiences," he said.

"Then as he's sitting on the bench in the second half of the game with his knee already swollen and with the icepack on he looks around and says, 'I'm gonna play next week with this -- I'm not missing a week', and he gets out and does it. That's a great example of mental toughness."

The sports medicine expert said most players would have been sidelined for at least a month with such an injury, but Cresswell was well known for his ability to push through pain barriers.

"Cresswell was one of those players who just had an attitude of 'I don't miss games with injury'," Dr Orchard said.

Then City scored and I screeched and this big bloke, a Liverpool supporter, made towards me and I thought he was going to throttle me. But he just pulled my scarf from under my coat so it lay on the outside, and said: "You should always be proud of your colours, lad."

There was a lad playing for my local rugby team who suffered a terrible compound fracture of his leg (broke in 3 places I think), and as he was being stretchered they stopped whilst he and one of the club officials posed for a photo. The player had a big smile on his face and was giving a thumbs up.
