Just had this through from a Forest fan on Nicky Shorey:

Livid that you’ve nicked him from us. He’s a class act and should do really well at Fulham. The only reason he wasn’t in the Villa team is because of Stephen Warnock – he’s been capped twice by England and played in the Prem with Reading.

He is a composed player and very clever. His great footballing brain meant he was a playmaker for us from left back! He’ll definitely do well for you.

Very encouraging.
