It appears as though our very own big-boned, fleet-footed, artistically-inclined blondie, Brek Shea, could make his EPL debut on Saturday when Stoke City visits Craven Cottage.
Potters boss Tony Pulis told Sky Sports that Shea would be in the squad and might even start. From the article:
“The two of them (Shea and Marc Wilson) will be in the squad – whether or not I start with them, we will have to wait and see,” said Pulis.
“I think Brek has been out for three or four months with an injury, so this is almost like a pre-season for him, but he is a fit lad I have to say.
“The work we have done with him has shown that he is very mobile and athletic, and very willing as well. So he is not far away.”
Glowing praise from the best ball-cap in the prem. In fact, were I Shea, I’d get the words “he is a fit lad I have to say” tatted up on my arm somewhere.
The match will be shown in the US on ESPN2 and ESPN3 at 7:30 a.m. ET on Saturday.
