Robin Shroot: Wants to do all he can to help Stevenage win promotion

The 24-year-old will be out of contract at the end of the season, but Boro chairman Phil Wallace claimed earlier this week that the club had rejected his request to go out on loan.

However, the midfielder, who has netted ten goals for the club since joining in 2011, told Sky Sports that he has no intention of leaving the club on either a short-term or permanent basis.

"I never once asked leave the football club, whether it be on loan or permanently," he said.

"It's the first time in my career that I've been appreciated by such a great set of supporters.

"I just want to do all I can to help get us into the Championship.

"I have always maintained that I want to do as best for the club as I possibly can regardless of how long I am on the pitch for.

"All I said regarding my contract situation was that for the good of my career I would need to wait and see whether I will be in the manager's plans, as I've only managed to start nine of the 40 games that the manager has been in charge for.

"That isn't unreasonable in any line of work or career and every player wants to be playing as many games as they can in order to succeed, so I'm no different in that respect."

"If the club wants to me leave I certainly have no idea why."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
