Fulham - Shorey Enjoying Life at the Cottage!

The acquisition of Nicky Shorey, on loan, appears to have been another bit of shrewd business carried out by Roy Hodgson.

The full back has slipped straight into the starting eleven without any hint of requiring a transition period and talk of a permanent deal, this summer, is sure to follow.

Shorey, having played on the Championship this season, is thankful to be back in the big time and ahead of the clash with Birmingham, has discussed his situation, remarking,

"There`s nothing worse than not playing. I really loved my time at Forest and was looking forward to going back when this move came out of nowhere."

"I`ve played for England before and I enjoyed it but I`ll leave it for other people to talk about. I`ve two caps and it`s great to play for our country."


Doesn`t it sort of make all those players who retire from international duty look a little foolish?

Nicky Shorey has done really well since he came in and if we get him on a permanent deal that would be a great result, he should give Konchesky some real competition for the left back slot when Konch is fit again and that can only be good for Fulham. Once again Roy has found a player that can improve the squad for not to much money.

totally agree, quality player - fitted in straight away
FFC Daz
I'd say he's in with a shout for wearing an England shirt again

especially with cole out with the broken ankle... but it's a real testamant to his quality that he slipped into the starting eleven without a hiccup... he's been great and i hope we keep him... konch has be a bit absentminded at times...
