I’d be delighted if the excellent Nicky Shorey decided to stay at Fulham. This might seem a bit harsh on Paul Konchesky, but Shorey’s presence has been missed during our last two defeats.

At the moment I am not too sure what will happen, but I’m not in the picture at Villa so I do have to think about that. I’m enjoying my time here and it will definitely be something that I consider when the time comes.

It’s a strange situation really, and in a lot of ways it’s worse than being injured. When a player misses games through injury it’s an enforced absence, but when you are fit and ready to play but still not getting a look in it’s hard to take. It was a frustrating time and hopefully one I won’t experience again.
