After steering, potentially, Fulham to their highest ever league position expectation levels, next season, are going to be higher then ever.
The $64,000 question is whether Roy Hodgson will be given the opportunity to push the club onwards and upwards.
Since taking over the managerial role, following the sacking of Lawrie Sanchez, Roy has turned our club around and in the last twelve months taken us to places we could only dream about.
If you were to be honest with yourselves, down on the south coast last season, praying for a goal at Fratton Park, would you have seriously believed that we`d be on the verge of European qualification, through league position?
But, to take the club forward, Roy will need to purchase again, players will need to be recruited to expand and strength the squad, especially if we`re to become embroiled in a Europa League campaign.
Speaking about the situation, you get the feeling Mr Al Fayed has yet to give a definitive answer as to what funds will be made available for purchases this summer, especially with Roy being quoted as saying,
"The chairman is just waiting for us to come back and say - 'we`ve identified the targets` - and then he`ll make his decisions about how much money he can allow us."
I`d also hazard a guess that any potential sales may bolster the pot and that the money from the Jimmy Bullard sale may well be made available.
Interesting times down by that quant old river aren`t they!
