Fulham - Whatever Happened to - Lee Cook?

Fulham - Whatever Happened to - Lee Cook?

Time for a bit of audience participation!

Two, or was it three summers ago, Fulham signed Lee Cook from Queens Park Rangers.

Cook, a player tipped to produce great things, spent longer (in days) in the treatment room than he did (in minutes) on the pitch.

His signing will go down in the history books as not one of the most successful.

Any sympathy he`d accumulated, amongst the Fulham support, rapidly evaporated when his yearning for a return to Loftus Road became public knowledge.

In fact when the said return materialized, he waxed lyrical about returning home.

Now, here`s the audience participation bit, I`m wondering just how the move turned out?

Has Lee Cook flourished at his spiritual home of has he disappeared off the Loftus Road radar screens?

I suppose I could investigate myself but at a time when KBFulham and myself are actively pushing through a campaign to get the readership more heavily involved what better place to start!

Rangers fan, I come in peace! Cookie didn't want to leave us but we needed the money to avoid imminent administration (again!). He also donated his £250k signing on fee to the Rs to keep us afloat. He came back from his knee injury and played OK for a while but needed another knee op at the end of last season and made a comeback for the reserves yesterday. Before he signed for you, and before his first knee injury, he truly was a blinding winger who could run rings round defenders. I'm hoping he can rediscover that form. Anyway, I'll end by saying I wish Hodgson was our manager, he's doing a great job and I am genuinely glad to see you lot doing well. You're a really decent team which is not just built on oil money!

I think the fact Cook has dropped off the radar is down to our medical team not spotting he was carrying a nasty injury in his OTHER knee. He was effectively playing on one leg, and in pain last season and should have been put in for surgery far earlier. He hasn't played this season, but has looked very sharp during training and in the second string. It's sad that such a prospering player never got a chance in the Premier League - on his form back then he would have undoubtedly been a success - no question. Hopefully he'll get back with us... one day!
