Shorey deal 'hits a snag'...

The move to bring Nicky Shorey in on loan from Villa could fall through, if it has not already fallen through?

This move seems to have taken a long time to complete, and sky sports have just said that the deal might have 'hit a snag', which I guess leaves this in doubt.

'If' it falls through we might be too late in the day to try and arrange another loan deal instead...



Sky sports say this is off as we could not agree a deal with Shorey.

mind you, hit a snag is not the same thing as on the rocks.

what exactly is a 'snag', is it some form of wild dog or something that shorey hit on his way to fratton...

In forest ecology, a snag refers to a standing, partly or completely dead tree, often missing a top or most of the smaller branches. so yea if he's hit a tree no wonder the deals not been done yet ;D

As a Villa fan, I'd like to see him stay and fight it out. He's looked great the last couple of games and he gives his all

Could be a medical problem as he was 'undergoing a medical' last I heard. Hope not for all concerned.

Sky sports news has just confirmed the deal IS OFF. Shorey and pompey couldn't agree the deal but that it's nothing to do with money...interesting. As a villa fan i'm delighted.

disappointed as this means we have wasted half a day on a loan that has not happened, we could have got in someone else!

The Bum reported that Shorey had turned the deal down because he wanted to stay and fight for his place

Isn't a snag an Aussie sausage? Perhaps we hit him with an Australian sausage and he got angry about it.

He wanted to be guaranteed first team football. PH said he could not do that so he went home.

Snag being the fact that he is a miserable little specimen who seems to think he is maldini.Trust me you have got off the hook here,Having his sour face around the club will bring you to annoyance.
