Shorey Confused By Axe

Nicky Shorey has said he feels he hasn't done anything to deserve being dropped for our recent match against Blues.

Speaking to the Express and Star Shorey has said he didn't deserve to be dropped for Stephen Warnock for the derby match as he felt his performances had been fine in the games so far, afterall we had 3 wins on the bounce.

'I wasn't fearing the worst last Sunday. I thought I'd be playing but I wasn't.'

Shorey had received plenty of praise for his other performances this season and many fans did expect to see him keep his place in the team despite Warnock's signing.

Shorey also spoke about rejecting a move to Pompey at the close of the window, explaining that their interest came late in the day and he just didn't think it would be a good move for him. In was in the team who were on a mini winning run and he was playing well.

Despite being dropped, and now presumably being second fiddle to Warnock, Shorey stands by the decision and still believes it was the right one for him.

Now he's just focused on getting back in the squad if he can and taking it from there.

I agree with Shorey on this 1. There's no reason at all he should have been dropped. Performances have been good this season & all better than what Warnock delivered against the Blues. But I don't see Shorey getting bk in the team, even if Warnock has a stinker or 2. Maybe his tantrum & the long walk of shame against Fulham last season still leaves a bad taste. Moaning to any tabloid that will listen won't help his cause either way.

thought he was playing ok for us, not sure he's deserved the stick he's got from some since coming and certainly was strange the way he was on the bench or even not making it that far last season after being a summer buy BUT not sure talking to the press about being dropped is the best idea. Time will tell!

IMHO then Warnock should have been made to wait until Shorey was either injured, suspended or bang out of form. Dropping him when he was none of these just tells the player he is second choice no matter what he does.

I don't rate him. Defensively he really worries me. I'll go along with the suggestion that he's been better this season but I can't say I have much sympathy with him at all.

Is Warnock a CL player?? we bought him from Blackburn who got him from Liverpoo who sold him cos he wasnt good enough!! I think Shorey has been hard done by, but I hope Warnock proves me wrong and is something special for us.

It's called competition. They all come out and say that more playes is a good thing. I can't stand the moaning when they get dropped, isn't that designed to spur them on and allow other players to get a chance.

Maybe he needs to run back home to mummy so she can tell him thats he's the best left back that mummy has ever seen. Grow up and respond!

What's the boss supposed to do buy a player then not play him?

PMSL Rif - isn't that exactly what Monny did when he signed Shorey - maybe Shorey is confused because he expected Warnock to have to wait until the start of next season before he got a game?

MO'N needs to be a bit more consistent. I remember when we 1st brought Milner in & it took him a while to get in the team because of our form. Although we had 3 wins on the bounce with a fairly impressive Shorey he was booted out for Warnock. And the only reason Warnock was on the bench for the Fulham game was because he wasn't match fit after BSA left him out since opening day of season. Don't get me wrong I rate Warnock & I think he'll B a great player for us. I also believe he would get in the Liverpool team now if he had been born in a different country.

Haha... sorry people... Whoever says Shorey/NRC are out of line, you are ALL hypocrites! Seriously if we were hired for a job, put in charge of something then through no fault of your own, you just get bumped down to be the janitor, you wouldn't complain!?!?! Thats exactly what these two players have done and yet the holier that thou people are calling them out for it. Shorey was the encumbant left back and was playing decent football, to be dropped is a clear statement that he will NEVER be in MON's first team plans no matter what. NRC has been argueably our best midfielder so far this season. When a youth player is favoured above him I would be *****ed too. And what people are missing is that NRC is a defensive midfielder who has a great engine on him. How many defensive midfielders possess a great passing game and score 10 goals a season. That isn't their role, they break up play. And I agree with northcliffebandit, what has beye done wrong, is Cuellar ,a central defender, above him in the pecking order? If that is so, then why buy him in the first place? So rather than criticise players for a reaction that anyone would have, criticise MON for his poor man management and shocking approach to this situation!
