Shorey Has Role - Osbourne On Loan - Dwight Gone!

Shorey Has Role - Osbourne On Loan - Dwight Gone!

According to the Mirror today, Blackpool manager Ian Holloway is looking to take Villa's Isaiah Osbourne on a season long loan. Hope that works out for him, we have a good few options in midfield and the 21-year-old hasn't as yet - still plenty of time - pushed on to be a serious contender for first team action.

Meanwhile MON says that Nicky Shorey still has a role to play despite his season long loan to Portsmouth falling through.

In the Birmingham Mail he says when asked if the left back has a role to play 'Of course. I think Nicky and his agent pre-empted things a little bit by thinking he was not going to play.' Explaining 'I had certainly not been pushing him out but something came up and they wanted to explore that. I gave them that opportunity but it didn't come off.'

He says the former Reading player now wants to continue to fight for his place and O'Neill says with Warnock and Bouma (hopefully closer to a return) there is competition for places which will be vital to the team.

Love him or loathe him (for his exit to Manchester United and the way he went about things) former striker Dwight Yorke has hung up his boots at the age of 37. I know what he did to get his exit was wrong but to be fair to the lad, he did go on and win the Champions League and domestic success so you can't say he didn't make the right choice for his own career... then again, in those days and with him in the team, we were pushing on and could have challenged for the league ourselves!

Ho hum, I'm not a bitter sort, I'll always remember the good times and as he says 'I hope people will say that I played the game in the right way with a smile on my face.' And boy oh boy was that smile wide...

It could be a good move for Osbourne. He hasn't exactly set the world on fire yet, but a loan move and regular football could be just what the lad needs. Glad to hear what MON says about Shorey too, he has had his ups and downs but I still think there is a decent player there. Yorkie gave us some great times regardless of what came later.

I loved Dwight Yorke. I remember seeing him score his first ever league goal against Norwich City on a Wednesday night. I think it was 1990-91. He did a "Roger Milla" style celebration near the Holte/Witton Lane corner flag. I was devastated when he left. I actually wanted Man Utd to win the CL that season to justify him moving and they did. I know how he behaved in his final few games for us was wrong but his decision to leave meant he got to win everything.

Yep, I also remember Yorkie making the last game in the old Holte a day to remember - love the fella to bits and have so many good memories. Yes the end hurt, as it often does, but really can't blame him for joining one of the biggest clubs in the world.

Of course. What a great day. Remember that fat curly haired muppet singing Never Walk Alone b4 kick off? Not sure I've ever heard such loud boos and whistles. Whose stupid idea was that?
