Bullard - Losing the Plot?

Bullard - Losing the Plot?

It`s a strange tale that`s doing the rounds.

A tale that carries the implication that Jimmy Bullard forced the issue` regarding his future, by threatening to go on strike.

Speaking on BBC`s Football Focus, Jimmy had this to say,

"I had sixteen months left on my contract, and I wasn`t willing to play with just sixteen months left - I told them that, even though I was under contract."

"I`ve been out injured for sixteen months before and I knew it was a long time. But I just felt Fulham didn`t want me and I needed more backing from the club."

"I was in talks over a new contract and was told I wasn`t getting one and could leave in January."

"For a player to be told that is quite harsh and when I came up to Hull it was totally different. That made it a lot easier for me."


Clearly, Jimmy is fast travelling down a route whereby any respect the Fulham fans had for him is, sadly, fast disappearing!

I think t would have been better for everybody if JB had never got the England call up, he didn’t even get on the pitch, but I am very disappointed with him, we spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on his medical care, we ensured that he got the best treatment the world, but he showed himself to be a money grabbing w*****r who thinks he’s better than he his, so I’m glad to see the back of him and I hope Hull go down and take him with them.

Disappointed with this type of rubbish from Bullard. We looked after him through that injury, and after all that the club did for him he wants a payrise. Thats what he wanted at the end of the day, forget all this balls about the club not wanting him. He was angling for a pay rise on an extended contract, the club quite rightly (bearing in mind how we'd looked after him) didn't want to entertain that at this stage in his contract and so he threw his toys out of the pram and went somewhere where they'll pay what he wants. Just a typical premiership footballer, a real shame...

Bullard's behaviour is bizzare to say the least. He could have kept his mouth shut and got on with life, but to pursue this vendetta against Fulham is grossly out of order. He seemed such a nice boy ;)
