Fulham - Davies on Squad Enhancement!

Fulham - Davies on Squad Enhancement!

Whilst Simon Davies has been sat on the sidelines he`s watched as Roy Hodgson has developed the squad.

Naturally he`d have been a little concerned that one of those signed to bolster the squad was Damien Duff, a seasoned international class professional who prefers to operate on the same flank as Simon does.

It`s a point that Simon, politely glosses over in an interview on the official site where he tends to focus more on the fact that there is a general acceptance that to compete in both the Premier and Europa Leagues and maintain the momentum of last year requires a bigger squad when he comments,

'The way the manager is rotating players at the moment - it's great for me coming back because there are good first class games to be involved in."

"If I can get fit we've got some good games coming up in November, which are perfect for me to get ready for the Premier League, which is the most important thing."

'The Premier League is the toughest league in the world and just because we finished seventh last season doesn't mean we'll be flying high this year."

'We put a lot of hard work in to finish in that position last year and we've got to do that again this year."

'If you want to be successful in the Europa League you've got to have a squad."

'Last year we were fortunate that we didn't have that many injuries and we had a balanced team, but with the amount of games we've got this season it was always going to be more of a squad game."

'The manager's bought very wisely and everyone's fitted in well. I think we've been unlucky in the league. We've deserved a few more points than we currently have but we have to manage that.'


I get the feeling that Simon Davies could have an influential part to play in the remainder of this season, don`t you?
