Fulham - Do we really need another keeper?

Fulham - Do we really need another keeper?

Following the signing of the 37 year old keeper Pascal Zuberbuhler, I would like to pose the question; do we really need another keeper?

We have already signed Schwarzer and Stockdale, not forgetting Niemi, why does King Roy deem it necessary to bring in another keeper over the age of 35?

I have nothing but respect for the man that saved us from relegation, and I don`t question any of his other signings apart from possibly Andranik, but it seems silly to have so many goalies.

So has Roy made a mistake or is it a good signing?

I think he'll look to offload Niemi. He must have come in on cheap wages and will maybe have some input into the coaching of the younger keepers

Yes,we do need another keeper, and yes, this is a good signing. Not sure why you're whining about Andranik, either. And I prefer the Vital Fulham articles that leave opinions to the Comments section!

It is a needed signing. If Niemi were to leave we would only have two keepers, and we would need a back up.
