Nicky Shorey: Joining Brighton for pre-season training

Shorey is available on a free transfer after leaving Reading earlier this summer and he is looking for a new club.

Brighton are in the market for a new left-back having seen Wayne Bridge join Reading after a successful spell on loan from Manchester City last season and also allowing Marcos Painter to leave the club.

Ironically Brighton were believed to be keen on Shorey last summer before they signed Bridge and they have now rekindled their interest in the full-back.

Shorey will spend this week training at Brighton in the hope of securing a move to the club, but any deal is being held up while the Seagulls begin their search for a new manager following the sacking of Gus Poyet on Sunday.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
