Fulham - Duff is the Key!

As the internationals bring down the curtain on a season whereby the World Cup will bring the ultimate finale, tonight gives us a chance to watch Damien Duff perform for the Republic of Ireland.

The Irish entertain Paraguay tonight, with their manager, the legendary Italian Trapattoni giving Damien a glowing reference, commenting,

"I monitored Damien a lot this year and we pray to God that he doesn`t get injured because, like Robbie Keane, Kevin Doyle and three or four others he is very important to us."

But, with Damien having played an incredible 52 games this season, the wily Italian is aware of the need to treat him carefully and added,

"I will look out for him tonight and when it is possible I will give him a rest."

Duff, who in my opinion was our outstanding buy last season, also received an acknowledgment for his performance in the Nordbank Arena, in the Europa League final, with Trapattoni, explaining,

"In the Europa League final he was fantastic, one of the best players on the pitch, and I hope he keeps that mentality."

"Since he arrived in for training, he doesn`t look like a player finishing up the season. He has been enthusiastic and isn`t showing that he`s under-performing, injured or tired."


And to think there was this humble editor thinking Roy had made a mistake, in the transfer market, when he lured him south from Newcastle, it just goes to show how wrong you can be!
