Fulham - That Bullard Reception!

I`m not sure it`ll go down in history as one of those seminal moments, like where were you when Kennedy was shot, but the return of Jimmy Bullard did provide an interesting spectacle.

Bullard, who many had tipped to start, was introduced by the Hull City manager, Phil Brown, in the second half to a crescendo of boos!

It seems the Craven Cottage faithful have, or never will, forgive Jimmy for chasing a sack of cash.

Dumped on the turf by Diomansy Kamara, soon after his introduction; brought another hefty cheer and his every touch was greeted by further booing.

Now before everyone gets the opinion that this happy go lucky family brigade at Craven Cottage have turned all nasty, perhaps we should point out that as the late Kenny Everett would say,

"It was done in the best possible taste."

To be perfectly honest if you asked a cross section of those who attended Craven Cottage last night I`m sure the majority would admit that Bullard made a difference to the Hull side and he is a fine player. Whether, as some people are suggesting, he could still gate-crash the England World Cup squad does remain a little far fetched.

A bit ironic to hear you boys singing about Bullard going into the Championship, when he played a large part in keeping you out of it.

Ah the sign of someone not in the know. McBride coming back from injury was more important, Nevland and Kamara's sudden rush of goals, Murphy's return to form and Hughes and Hangeland forming a good partnership was equally, possibly more, important than Bullard's contribution. He deserved the reception, and hopefully Hull go down to prove him further to be a money grabbing so and so.

Maybe he'll do the same for you lot... then take a big money move to some newly promoted club with a perma-tanned manager. Then you can sing about him, too.
Teddy_KGB
although his free kick against Villa was most welcome!
Al Billy
he'll learn - why Hull though, not even money would drag me there!
Fulham Badger
lol - not a popular eastender then!
rosshammer
what else should he expect coming back... if he thinks we'll love him forever for scoring goals to win some points for us in that Great Escape, think again... all he had to do was stay at the cottage to be loved forever by cottage faithful...

if he had left for a big club you could understand but hull come on
