Stockdale vows to wise up

BY foxsports • April 16, 2011

The 25-year-old goalkeeper took to the social networking this week to admit he was not entirely content about playing second fiddle to Mark Schwarzer for all but 10 games this season. "It's been difficult stepping back," Stockdale told Fulham's official website. "But that's the life of a goalkeeper - at times it's a bit of a waiting game. Every player wants to play, and I'm no different. "I've been in the press this week as a result of something I said on Twitter, but it was taken out of context. I was naive, and should have been more aware because quite a lot of players have got in to trouble from statements of their own this season. "I said that in seeing Mark Schwarzer do so well, that next year I might have to evaluate my situation. I can see why people thought I was suggesting that I wanted to leave, but that's really not what I meant because I'm very, very happy here. "I've spoken to the club and they know that I want to be a Fulham player for a long time to come. I like communicating with the Fulham fans on Twitter, but I'll have to be a bit wiser. "I didn't want to cause any trouble, and it's all quite unfortunate, but again, I have no desire to leave!"
