Weale: "What's form?"

14 December 2012

Keeper determined the squad can keep up performances

Chris Weale is determined to all he can to maintain his consistent performance level between the posts as he looks ahead to Saturday's home clash against Carlisle United.
Weale, the summer signing from Leicester City, has emerged as one of Shrewsbury Town's most dependable performers this season having played every game.
"I'm pleased but I've always said: What's form?" said Weale. "Form is people's opinions and I'm not concerned about other people's opinions.
"I know myself how I'm performing and I know how I want to perform. I know what I need to do to get the standard that's required."
The experienced Weale, a great thinker about the game, added: "I like to judge myself over the course of a season and, as a goalkeeper, if you can play every game over a season you sit back at the end and say, yes, it was good, it was bad, I could have done better here and there.
"If you do that on a game to game basis, it's too up and down. It's like a rollercoaster really.
"If you start looking at goals conceded and start pointing too many fingers at yourself then obviously that can have a detrimental effect as well."
Weale was encouraged about much of Town's display in last weekend's 2-2 draw at Crawley where a late goal from the Sussex club denied Shrewsbury a first away victory of the season.
"It was a pleasing performance and there were a lot of positives to take from the game," he said. "Hopefully we move that on to Saturday as performance wise and spirit wise, it was really good."
"Everyone was together, everyone was working well, so hopefully that will continue into a busy Christmas period."
