Delap happy to shoulder responsibility
Stoke midfielder Rory Delap has been pleased with the way his shoulder has coped with the demands of the season. Delap has suffered one or two niggles during Stoke`s first campaign in the Premier League, a legacy of being a long-throw specialist. He intends to seek medical advice in the summer regarding his shoulder and said : "I want to make sure there is nothing too wrong with it. But is has not been too bad lately." Delap has been a key player as Stoke have secured top-flight status for at least another season but admits the spotlight on his long throws has been "a bit strange". He said: "I have played the majority of games this season and I have got to be happy with that. "Mind you it has been a bit strange, this business with the long throws. But I am not bothered what people say anymore. It is just one of those things."
