Fulham - Niemi Comeback Draws Closer!

Could it be adios to coaching and a return to full time keeping?

Last week we ran an article that implied that an old favourite of ours was contemplating a comeback!

After retiring, our ex-Finnish keeper, Antti Niemi was contemplating making a comeback with troubled Portsmouth.

It now appears that Niemi is ready to defy his age, thirty-seven, and make that comeback after impressing the Portsmouth manager, Paul Hart.

Rumours have been emerging that troubled Portsmouth may be on the verge of releasing their England keeper, David James, enabling Niemi to step into the coveted green jersey down at Fratton Park.

Now here at Vital Fulham we`re pondering whether all this will take place in time for our opening match of the season against, yes you`ve guessed it - Portsmouth!

should make for an interesting first game of the season... i'm sure schwarzer will show him up!

I reckon he may have just lost a bit of fitness e.t.c over the last year. I wouldn't recommend him being first choice for Pompey.

If he playes the same way as he played for us, he can even keep them up. Just as point who were the defenders at the front of him and at the front of Schwarzer? He saved us couple of seasons ago.

he signed a one year deal today - good luck to him!

I was trying to say the Pompey boys do not like an ex-Southampton player turning up on their doorstep!

Didn't think of it like that. But with James on the way out I guess they will have to live with it!
