Fulham - Shorey - One Giant Step!
The acquisition of Nicky Shorey, on loan is proving to be another wise move by Roy Hodgson.
The full back, who had been playing on loan at Championship side Nottingham Forest, has slipped back into Premier League life as if he`s never been away.
Shorey also appears to be enjoying life at Fulham and he too is starting to be enveloped by talk of a possible trip to Wembley in the FA Cup.
Remarkably, for a player who has played top-flight football for so long, Shorey is now entering unchartered ground as far as the FA Cup is concerned, as he explains,
"I've not got very far before, to be honest. This is the furthest I've got."
"When I was at Reading, we didn't really get too far because we were so focused on trying to stay in the Premier League and we changed the team about a bit."
"A quarter-final would be a great experience, if selected. It's great to be part of a squad that will be looking forward to such a big game."
'I love the FA Cup. It's still a great competition to win."
Is FA Cup mania about to grip Craven Cottage?
