Fulham - Ireland Up for Grabs?

Fulham - Ireland Up for Grabs?

I still can`t help thinking that our failure to name a successor to Roy Hodgson is going to hamper us in the transfer market.

Although I accept that the window doesn`t close until the end of August there are other things to take into consideration - integration, fitness and availability.

One player who could be open to a move to Craven Cottage is the Manchester City midfielder, Stephen Ireland.

If the red-tops are to be believed then Manchester City are looking to off-load some of their players and with the red-tops also reporting that Ireland has had a falling out with Roberto Mancini then he could be ours to grab.

Ireland is quoted in the re-tops this morning as having been linked to several clubs, ours included, when he`s quoted as having said about his situation,

"It didn`t go well for me last season, when there were a lot of changes at the club, but it`s only a season ago that I was player of the year and my view is that I haven`t become a bad player overnight"

"Hopefully the manager doesn`t think that either."

"I`ve heard about supposed interest from Sunderland, Fulham and maybe even Aston Villa, but I haven`t heard anything directly. I`m not going to rush into things."


The last few words seem quite appropriate to me, seeing as we`re not appearing to be rushing into things naming our latest manager!

I agree. Ok we dont need to rush into the appointment of a manager but it would be good to make that appointment just for the aspect of signing or selling players....Ireland would be a brilliant choice. I really like this player. Hard working honest attacking midfield. Perfect replacement for danny in my eyes.

Ireland has been discussed a few times on Vital this year. I too am a big fan and feel that he would be perfect for a Fulham midfield.

if we could get him in it would be great... but as with the appointment of roy initially, getting in the right manager is more important than getting in any one player... get it right... no sanchez, and no cookie for that matter...
