Brek Shea: The Stoke man is 'bold, bright and unpredictable'

Brek Shea: The Stoke man is 'bold, bright and unpredictable'

The Texan-born playmaker is a part-time artist and insists his work is just as unpredictable as the way he plays the game.

Shea, 23, who joined the Potters in a £2.5million deal in January from MLS side FC Dallas, says his hobby keeps his mind at ease.

He told the Daily Star "I like to paint two or three times a week.

"If you look at my paintings you will see a lot of them are bold, bright and unpredictable.

"And I play my football in pretty much the same way - so there is a comparison.

"I don't know what I'm going to do out on the pitch. I just like to go out there and it happens - that is exactly the same with my paintings.

"I play my best when I don't think about things and just do things on the spur of the moment. I am a free spirit, I suppose.

"Football can be a very stressful game when things aren't going your way. Something like painting can really help to keep your mind at ease."

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.
