Fulham - Hodgson Praises Nevland

Fulham - Hodgson Praises Nevland

It`s become noticeable in recent weeks that Erik Nevland seems to be occupying a role whereby he`s named as a substitute but inevitably comes on with approximately a quarter of an hour to go.

The Norwegian, who hasn`t quite made a first team place his since arriving at Craven Cottage, has always proven to be a willing runner and here, at Vital Fulham, we`ve never doubted his enthusiasm.

In fact, the Norwegian has also received some plaudits from Roy Hodgson with Roy quoting,

"He`s a nasty player to play against because he competes. Even though the guy against him looks bigger and stronger, he`ll be there trying to get his head to the ball."

If he`s that nasty Roy, set him loose on Leon!

Let him play Roy if you think he is so good. Would be nice to see how Johnson and Nevland would play against Blackburn. Give Zamora a rest and the put the Viking on.

Nevland is a quality player, but i personally wouldn't mess with the AJ-Bobby partnership in big premiership games. But i do agree with you Wimbledon White, Nevland should get more games. But for now, little and large works well enough.

He's a great bench player. He'll fill in for either AJ or Bobby as he has good pace about him and a really good strong, physical nature. I think he's great just pushing AJ and Bobby as it will just force them to strive for better performances

Zamo's style of play Lesson 1: i will hold the ball up for 20 seconds and then get tackeld by a defender because i was to stupid to see that a midfielder was in a great possision! Argh he annoys me. Woy should start Nevland and Dempsey just to put the frightners on AJ and BZ because they look a little complacent at times and i don't like it!

Zamora creates chances, if he could score 5 goals this season that would be nice but hes a solid signing
