One of our unsung heroes this season has been our central defender, Aaron Hughes.
Hughes, often under-rated but very much valued, is the perfect partner for Brede Hangeland and their partnership is the cornerstone on which our defensive strengths have been developed.
Now (volcano permitting), as we enter what just has to be our most crucial fixture of the season, Hamburg away, Aaron has spoke about the occasion and of how he`d like nothing better than to win the trophy for our owner, remarking,
"It would be fantastic to do it for everyone but Mr Fayed is the chairman and has done a lot for this club and for us."
"If we could bring the trophy back for him that would make his day and ours. It would make him extremely proud."
No doubt it would and to see Mr Fayed dancing a jig of delight would surely make all those troubled times worthwhile.
Continuing, Aaron touches on the bad days and reflects on just how far Fulham Football Club have come since that nail-biting day at Fratton Park when we were staring straight at the relegation trapdoor but also what it would mean to fall at this late stage of the competition, commenting,
"We have come a long way from that day at Portsmouth two years ago when we survived on the final day."
"To go out on Europe in the semis would be the worst because you are just one step away from the final. We know what is at stake. All the games we played. All the games that were changed to a Sunday and the effort we put in."
Before poignantly adding,
"I don`t know where the trophy room is at Craven Cottage."
"But it`s a big old trophy, a nice one to bring back."
I`m not sure we`ve ever had need for a trophy cabinet Aaron, major honours have been a little Spartan shall we say. But, we`re sure that Mr Fayed wouldn`t object to dipping his hand into his pocket to purchase something nice and exclusive for the Europa League trophy to be housed in!
