Fulham - First Goal is still Survival!
Although he`s the subject of much transfer speculation there have, as far as we`re aware been no official bids for Brede Hangleand.
What we`ve read in the tabloid press appears to be merely nothing but speculation.
In fact, the tall Norwegian, when interviewed recently, appears to be 100% focussed on the forthcoming campaign and looking forward to that proverbial goal of first achieving sufficient points to survive, remarking,
"We are in Europe, but the Premier League remains the most important thing. Even though we finished seventh last year, I am sure the goal for the next season will be to avoid relegation."
But, with one eye on the bigger picture, Brede also found time to comment on the much anticipated European campaign, commenting,
"It is pretty crazy that we are in Europe. No-one had thought about that before last season and for Fulham as a club it is a fantastic achievement and very exciting."
I think it`s fait to say that when Danny Murphy scored that all important goal down at Fratton Park to guarantee our survival, not many supporters thought we`d come so far so quickly, I certainly didn`t!
