Fulham - Centre Back Linked to Craven Cottage!

Fulham - Centre Back Linked to Craven Cottage!

With the tabloids still implying that Brede Hangeland is bound for Arsenal, once the centre half transfer merry-go-round settles down, it`s come as no surprise to hear that a few names are being suggested as his possible replacement.

One name thrown up by the 'Daily Grapevine` is the Middlesbrough centre back, Robert Huth.

A fee of £2 million is being suggested as the asking price as Middlesbrough, following relegation fro m the Premier League, seek to cut back their spending on salaries.

Off course, we all recognise that Huth joined Middlesbrough from that lot down the road. He`s also had a hard time with injuries since his move which we believe is reflected in the fee, a snip for a German international.

So what would bother you most?

The fact that he looks a pale imitation of the player he could be replacing?

The fact that he used to play for that lot down the road?

Or that he`s unlikely to replicate the relatively injury free season that Hughes and Hangeland had last year.

We`d be interested to hear your views!

all around, i think he'd be a downgrade... however, for 2 mil, i can't say i'd be against this for cover... in terms of a replacement for hangeland, why not take the money we make and steal either wheater or turner from hull? would those not be better replacements? i also tend to think we have a very good physio team, but who knows.

a downgrade now that's what I'd call an under-statement :-)

but we shouldn't hold the Chelsea thing against him after all did we not love Wayne Bridge when he played for us?

I think it would be a good deal for us, £2mil for him is a decent price.
