Fulham - Go get him Roy!
It`s not often I open a tabloid, flick through its pages and a smile lights my face up!
Well sometimes it does happen but that`s merely a smile related to the unbelievably poor rumours that grace the pages, but this time it was different, it was a genuine smile of anticipation.
Sat amongst the numerous rumours was one was that implied that Fulham are one of three clubs, the other two being West Ham and Everton, that are showing an interest in the Barcelona player, Eidur Gudjohnsen.
Gudjohnsen who joined Barcelona from that lot down the road, is surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp and is available for the knockdown price of £4 million.
He has a wealth of Premier League experience and is the sort of player that could play in the hole behind Andrew Johnson and Bobby Zamora.
My only fears are that the link with West Ham could prove to be our undoing.
Would Gudjohnsen be more interested in working under two of his former team mates, Gianfranco Zola and Steve Clarke or is there a chance that he`d prefer to return to the north-west, with Everton, having previously inhabited that part of the country whilst playing for Bolton Wanderers?
Come on Roy, get that silver tongue working, this guy has that bit of class we need!
