New boy ready for bow

Our latest American international joined the from MLS side Kansas City Wizards last month, and now the 23-year-old could make his debut against West Ham United next weekend.

'I am really excited to get going as it is, without doubt, the best league in the world and I feel that I am part of a great team here at Fulham,' said Johnson.

'Every day is a big challenge; nothing over here is guaranteed to you as a player. You have to prove yourself on a daily basis and I think that is one of the major differences from the MLS.

'No one is different from another guy in the squad, there is no special treatment or perceived level of status, you are rewarded with how you train and play in games and that's how it should be.

'The coach treats everyone equally in terms of his expectations and demands, which are very high and I know I have to work hard to match these, which I am willing to do.'

You go for it boy! Bang those goals in! But who will he be pushing out? Kamara? Baird?

I think he'll be a quality signing. We were linked with him last season, wish we'd signed him.
I think the same uroyals. Think he'll provide our front line with much needed pace and strength
But will it be too much too late? Let's hope for your sakes he hits the ground running!
Mind you I wouldn't object if he put a couple past West Ham on Saturday :-)
just the sort of player we need and as we r struggling for goals i would expect him to go straight into the team !
But will he get a decent opportunity if Hodgson wants to play 4-5-1 with Davies and Dempsey/Kamara on the left and right?? Surely McBride is our first choice up front?
