Fulham - The Nicky Shorey Conundrum!
Back in January, when the transfer window was open, (Sir) Roy Hodgson pulled off something of a smart move when he signed Nicky Shorey on a loan deal.
Shorey had been on loan at Nottingham Forest, from his parent club Aston Villa, and came into a Fulham squad ravaged by injury.
The full back proved to be an instant hit and it was easy to see how he`d attracted international recognition, albeit whilst at Reading.
At the time talk was of pushing on to secure a regular place and even the possibility of securing a late call up for the England 2010 World Cup squad.
But it all seems to have gone a little flat for Shorey recently with the most activity the full back has had being warming the substitutes bench.
Therefore, with the small matter of the season coming to an end we`ve another of our little teasers for you to mull over.
If you were (Sir) Roy, would you say you`ve seen enough to sign Shorey on a regular basis or has his contribution always been to merely fill the void left by the injury to Paul Konchesky?
Your comments would be most welcome!
