Fulham - Those That Got Away - Marlon King!

Fulham - Those That Got Away - Marlon King!

Does anyone remember the outcry that erupted when the rumours implied that, some time ago we were after the Watford striker Marlon King?

I doubt whether I`ve ever seen a potential signing lambasted in the way King was.

Fortunately, King never arrived at Craven Cottage, instead he opted for Wigan Athletic amidst several column inches of guff.

Well, life wasn`t what it was expected to be up at Wigan and King struggled to get into the first team on a regular basis.

It now looks like that King, if he can agree salary terms, will be moving on to newly promoted Hull City.

Definitely one that got away that we`re not too bothered about!

Only scored one goal this season, which was a penalty. One of the reasons for McKinlly leaving

Kings not been too bad, looks to be low on confidence but does work hard, maybe a trip up the M62 to Hull will do him good
