Shorey Believes Sidders Will Bounce Back

Shorey Believes Sidders Will Bounce Back

Nicky Shorey believes Steve Sidwell will bounce back from his Boro disappointment.

Even Laursen has commented it was a somewhat up and down day for Sidwell, scoring our equiliser and then gifting them the winner. According to our captain Sidwell was very down in the dressing room and could only focus on his errors in the match and not anything positive.

Shorey had a little more to say about his ginger friend stating he was big enough and strong enough to overcome his disappointment. With some of the comments our players make about each other, you have to wonder if ugly enough was ommited from the official site interview.

'It was a rollercoaster afternoon for Steve. If you take that error out, I thought he had a good game.

'He shouldn't get too down on himself about it because everyone makes mistakes.

'He shouldn't lose sight of the fact that he had a good game and played well throughout. I'll be telling him that and I'm sure the other lads will too.

'The fact is he's a top quality midfielder and a real asset for the club. We shouldn't lose sight of that.

'I'm sure he will bounce back. He's a strong character and he'll be back very soon.

'The defeat was just one of those things. We made two mistakes and got punished heavily for them.

'You get punished massively for mistakes in the Premier League and the Middlesbrough game was a classic example of that. The margins are so thin.

'They have taken their chances and we probably haven't on the day. The important thing now is bouncing back.'

One thing you can say about our pathetic losses and performances this season we generally have a knack of bouncing back. I'm not so sure we can do against Arsenal who will be looking for a return to form themselves, and I would say if we are lucky enough to scrape a point against United, we'd all take that now.

In my mind we have dropped 6 points this week against Newcastle and Boro, we really need to be looking at gaining 2 points minimum from the next two games.

Is Shorey going to bounce back aswell. Don't see him admitting to an equally bad cock up for the first goal.

He looked really shocked yesterday, after the second goal

Sidwell will be a great player for us, mistakes happen, he just has to remember not to repeat it! Shorey will be ok for us as well, he came from Reading not Barcelona so not sure what MON/us expected? But I think he'll be steady enough and will settle in. Up to the manager to bring in players for the next level, not the players faults if they aren't that... just ask Harewood!

all players make mistakes, it's how you bounce back that counts!

The biggest disappointment for me is that we are STILL fifth despite losing our last two games. Twice in a week we fail to move into the top four (we always seem to screw it up when we have the opportunity to move up). We now go into back to back games with two teams who are in the top four. If we had picked up 2 or three points against teams below us (NFC & MFC) we would've gone into those games above Man U and possibly Arsenal. Instead we are still below them. Yesterday was SO disappointing. We were in such a strong position a week ago. Now I see us slipping down the table over the next month. I'm still confident of the long term future don't get me wrong but we have thrown away a great start.

Its a pity Sidwell's mistake, if it had to happen, didn't happen at the start of the game, and that his equaliser came after. That wouldnt have felt so bad. But as you can see from the MOTM poll, he is most peoples MOTM! I hope he reads this forum and takes courage from that. I thought he had a good game, apart from a mistake that anyone could have made! It is very disappointing, but really Sidwell is the last person we can blame for yesterdays performance!

He will not be the first player to cock up during a game and I am sure he wont be the last.

Sidwell is class and you could see he was absolutely devastated when he made that mistake. He'll get over it hopefully and I think he will become a big player for us in the future.

Shorey's blunder was just as bad as Sidwell's both should have just hoofed the ball up field and not messed about, first thing you learn as a kid playing football is not to play the ball across the goal. Oh dear. And lets not forget if it wasnt for the fact Alfonso Alves is poo, Friedel may be under the microscope this week too, he has been making some poor saves, needs to learn how to catch the ball I think.

And he will bounce back, no doubt about it. Too good a player not to. I think he'll be a big player for us, and become a huge crowd favourite. Notch the winner at The Emirates Stevie.
