Fulham - Free-Scoring Striker Gossip!
Last season I beat the merry drum on several occasions imploring (Sir) Roy Hodgson to visit the County Ground, Swindon, with a view to making a signing.
The player I had under my microscope was Simon Cox who eventually left the club to join the Roberto Di Matteo revolution up at West Bromwich Albion.
Well, according to our friends over at Vital Swindon, Fulham do have their eyes on a Swindon forward this season, the prolific Charlie Austin.
Apparently, Sky Sports are reporting that promotion bound Newcastle United have sounded Swindon out about the possibility of recruiting the free scoring forward with, naturally, the names of a couple of Premier League teams thrown into the hat, namely, us and Tottenham Hotspur!
Whether anything comes out of this remains to be seen but if (Sir) Roy is looking for a free-scoring player in the lower divisions then heeds our words this time around and take a look at Rickie Lambert, currently at Southampton but formerly of Bristol Rovers, this guy nets in his sleep!
