Don`t you just love it when players talk up a move to another club?
Instead of poignantly reflecting on where it went wrong at the club they are leaving they spout on about the merits and virtues of joining another club.
The latest to fall into this category is our American forward Eddie Johnson.
Johnson, as we all know, has gone on loan to Championship side, Cardiff City.
Johnson who failed to score in six appearances for Fulham after being signed for £1.5 million, obviously tried to impress the Cardiff City followers by commenting,
"I learned a lot about Cardiff City because I followed their FA Cup exploits all the way."
"That was one of the reasons, when Cardiff City wanted me to join them on loan, I was so keen."
"From what I`ve seen, this is an ambitious club with a great manager in Dave Jones and a great bunch of players.
"This club enjoyed success last season and there is more to come. I want to be a part of that."
"Premiership football is the best in the world - and I still believe I can score goals at that level," said Johnson.
"But I was in a difficult situation at Fulham because I wasn`t playing matches regularly. Cardiff City have given me the chance to show what I can do and I can`t wait to get started.
"Cardiff are a club I followed a lot last season when they reached the FA Cup final and they have offered me a fantastic opportunity."
Many would imply that last season was a flash in the pan for the Welsh side Eddie!
I reckon you`ll not score double figures down in Wales - anyone care to differ!
