Fulham - Pulling Off the Improbable?
We`re never going to be seen as the most glamorous of London clubs but, over the years, we`ve had our moments.
In fact, over the years, some of those that have chosen to sign for Fulham Football Club have surprised may a football pundit.
Who`ll ever forget the wonderful days when our side was blessed with such talent as George Best, Rodney Marsh and Bobby Moore? Such wonderful times, times that showed that; given the right encouragement, Fulham is a wonderful place to play your football.
This morning it got me thinking. The tabloid press are indicating that Barcelona are looking to sell Thierry Henry at the end of the season.
Thierry is a wonderful talent but is about to enjoy a swansong in a career that has, in all truth, seen him play his career defining football across London at Arsenal.
Rumours persist that Barcelona will want a fee approaching £10 million; perhaps this could be adjusted downwards though in the current economic climate.
By now I guess many of you can guess where I`m heading.
My question is, would it be possible to tempt a goal scoring legend back to the London he loves but playing for a club that, in all reality, is never going to challenge the stranglehold the current giants have on the Premier League and European stages.
Your thoughts would be appreciated!
