Shorey Confused By Axe

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.
