Fulham - Where Are They Now?

Fulham - Where Are They Now?

You can tell news is scarce, I`ve had to seriously think about how to generate some activity on the site today, a day devoid of Premier League football.

So, as a stab in the dark I thought I`d look at starting an occasional series whereby we delve into the knowledge available out there to find out where some of our players are that didn`t quite cut the mustard at Craven Cottage are now.

The first of these is Björn Sandro Runström

Runström joined Fulham with a reputation as a goal scorer, he was signed from Hammardby after scoring 18 goals in 57 matches, almost a goal every three games.

At twenty-two years of age, Fulham were prepared to pay £700,000 for his services in July 2006, but it wasn`t to prove to be money well spent. By January 2007 he`d been loaned out to Luton Town for a three month spell.

Returning to Craven Cottage, in April 2007, he was soon off on his travels again joining Kaiserslauten in July.

Returning in May 2008 he was released by Fulham having made only 1 league appearance.

Nowadays he can be found playing for the Danish side, OB.

His signing just goes to show the risk of signing somebody with potential but no top-class experience.

To be fair to Roy, E.J had a much better record before joining then Runstrom did, he would have looked like a good striker to most managers. Both proved silly signings in the end though, but we can only learn from our mistakes!

I think if you dig into who EJ scored his goals against you would not draw that conclusion. Most of his goals were against very weak opponents. I don't think he ever demonstrated that he would be a good striker in the EPL.

But in January, if you were a scout looking at EJ, he was scoring game-by-game and had bags of pace and flair. And the MLS can't be under-estimated. I am not sticking up for him; he has proven he is a poor player in the EPL, I am purely sticking up for Roy, and what would have seemed like an intelligent purchase.
