Bullard is Going Absolutely Nowhere!

Bullard is Going Absolutely Nowhere!

Backslash gave us an almighty shock with the article he e-mailed me relating to the suggestion Jimmy Bullard could be sold!

Thankfully, it appears that some eager journalist at the Sunday People was being all mischievious.

Today, on the official site, Roy Hodgson has issued a statement that will have us all sleeping a little better in our beds tonight, here`s what he said,

'I was shocked when I was told of what was reported in a Sunday newspaper.'

'Jimmy`s importance to us after his return to fitness can not be underestimated."

'He was integral to our survival and is a very important player for this football club. I can understand that the Fulham fans would be understandably perturbed to read such nonsense, but I can assure them that it is nonsense of the highest order, with no substance whatsoever."

'Jimmy Bullard is a key player for Fulham and I hope that he will remain so for many seasons to come."

'We are looking forward to making some additions to the squad over the coming weeks which is an exciting time for the Club, and Jimmy Bullard will be playing alongside whoever they may be, wearing a Fulham jersey.'


Well said Roy, well said!

You really want to hold onto him. Your fortunes quickly turned once he returned to full fitness at the end of last season.

Shame, would have liked him at West Ham, good player. We should have held on to him when we had him!
