Shay’s on a well-deserved break but rumours are rife! :-)

It seems that each day another rumour is rife about where Shay could end up but realistically speaking, it might be a last-minute thing as most managers and players are on holidays and need a break from it all. Shay is no different and said recently:

“All in all, it’s been a disappointing and frustrating season. You train everyday to play at the weekend but you know that nine times out of ten, you’re not going to play so it can get you down at times.”

“Hopefully something might happen in the next couple of weeks. I don’t really know because I haven’t spoken to the club but we go back training in two weeks time so Im sure it’s something the club will be understanding about. They know I need to be playing football again.

“I just need to get a club really – it’s just about getting the right club and hopefully that will happen. If that doesn’t happen, I’ll just go back to Manchester City and work hard and strive to try and get back in the first team, that’s all I can do.”

Shay is also looking forward to some time off before pre-season kicks in again:

“I normally like to get home (Donegal) but this summer, it looks as if I won’t make it home because time’s now against me. After pre-season, I might get a day off and get up there because I always love to get home to see my family and friends.”

He also gave his thoughts on the last win against Macedonia and the 2 friendlies against Northern Ireland & Scotland:

“The two games against Northern Ireland and Scotland were important because they gave me good game time,

“You can train all you want but you need the matches, you need to get sharp and they were a help going into the Macedonian game. It was a bonus for me that those games were organised. Obviously the biggest game was the Macedonian game – we got a fantastic victory out there which was great.”

On the vital Macedonia game:

“I had to make some saves when called upon and lucky enough Robbie got two great goals. It was an all round good team performance, it’s a tricky place to go. As you know, in the past, we’ve had some poor results in Macedonia. It was a banana skin and we were happy to get out with the win. We’re joint top in the group now and looking good for qualification.”
