Oi! Hands off Southgate!
After Roy Hodgson issued a statement, earlier this week, informing the lurking vultures that he intended to build his Fulham team around Jimmy Bullard, it seems someone wasn`t listening.
Today, it is being reported that Middlesbrough, courtesy of Gareth Southgate, are preparing an offer for the services of Jimmy and will try to entice us by offering Gary O`Neil in a player exchange deal.
Apparently, O`Neil has had trouble settling in the north after leaving Portsmouth for Middlesbrough. Now you may be an okay kind of player Mr O`Neil but you ain`t a patch on our Jimmy.
So, Mr Southgate - go forth and multiply, we ain`t interested, right!
