The US international has joined the Championship's basement club on a 28-day deal after struggling to break into the first team at the Britannia Stadium.

Shea joined Stoke last January on a four-and-a-half-year contract for £2.5m from MLS side FC Dallas but his career in England has been hampered by niggling injuries.

The 23-year-old has made just five appearances for the Potters and admitted recently he needed to be playing in order to force his way into Jurgen Klinsman's squad for the World Cup.

Shea scored the winning goal for the US in their CONCACAF Gold Cup final win over Panama in July just 42 seconds after stepping off the bench.

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
