New book for Fulham fans

Our friends over at CCN have just published the Fulham Review 07/08 which covers our, er, eventful past season in the Premier League. I bought last year's one which was fantastic so it's definitely worth taking a look - and it's a bargain price, too. Click here for more info.

Fulham in talks with West Ham duo

A bit of good news to cheer up our morning. West Ham have confirmed they've give us permission to speak to Bobby Zamora and John Pantsil (Paintsil). Both would make very good additions to the squad, filling striker and right back gaps. Fingers crossed eh?

Palace winger on trial at Fulham

An amusing story this morning. Apparently, news that Ashley-Paul Robinson, an 18-year-old Crystal Palace winger, is having a trial with us was broken by the youngster himself on the Facebook social networking site. Read here for the full details. Anyone know much about him?

Roy Hodgson praises Fulham fans

In an interview in Fultime Magazine, Roy Hodgson has praised the contribution of the fans in our survival battle. A nice touch from a class act.

As far as the fans are concerned I’ve been more and more impressed by them. I’ve been impressed by the fact that every game since I’ve been here has been a sell out, which I don’t think is an obvious thing when you’re at the bottom of the table. With one or two minor exceptions all of our performances have been greeted with, if not jubilation, then respect from the public, which, of course, is great. And towards the end, those people who travelled away, and those who stayed behind after Birmingham to acclaim the team, I found that very touching. I’ve been brought up in a hard school football-wise and I’m more used to people behaving like that when the team’s at the top of the league, so to get the reception that we did after Birmingham speaks volumes of our fans and proves that we have a major responsibility to perform for them.

Fulham stuck with Kamara

Well, it doesn't look like Joe's going anywere. He's damaged his knee ligaments playing for Senegal and is likely to be out for six months which means we won't be seeing him in a white shirt until next year at the very earliest...

...So, despite hints that there were other clubs sniffing after him and the prospect of recouping some of his £6m price tag (no, I can't believe we paid that much either) we're now stuck with another multi-million pound 'star' in the treatment room.

I actually like Joe and he scored some real belters last season, particularly the two crucial strikes at Manchester City which helped turn our season around, but he's very much a 'luxury' player who, by his own admission, didn't exactly set the world alight last season.

Therefore, if we had sold him I wouldn't have been too upset. What we have now, though, is the worst of all worlds. A bit-part, expensive player who we can't even use. With the departure of McBride our attacking options for next season look extremely limited. Let's hope Roy has got something up his sleeve otherwise we'll effectively be in a relegation fight before we've even started.
