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.
