Fulham - Konchesky Deal Nearing Conclusion

Fulham - Konchesky Deal Nearing Conclusion

Upon ex-manager Roy Hodgson leaving Fulham to move to Liverpool, many of us will remember his words of assurance when he promised he wouldn't 'raid' our humble team in pursuit of improving his newly inherited side.

What constitutes a raid is difficult to gauge, but, after making such a bold statement, I think we would all feel hard done by if he made a move for any of our players.

However, his decision to up sticks and depart to pastures new isn't proving as merited as many felt it would, and his side haven't began the season as brightly as expected.

The 3-0 defeat to Manchester City may have been a one off result and it's very early days yet, but, alongside such an illustrious job comes huge pressure. In fact, I wouldn't be exaggerating when I say a fair proportion of Scousers were calling for his resignation hours after the appointment.

Clearly, in an attempt to turn things round, Hodgson will dip into a market he knows well; our squad!

A bid of around £3.5 million is expected to be table for left-back Paul Konchesky over the next few days, which is likely to be accepted given that only one year remains on Konchesky's Fulham deal.

It's also highly likely that the full-back will accept terms as he is a want-away, much like Mark Schwarzer, craving a re-union with his former boss.

So, is a mass-exit on the cards, and is anyone a little upset with Roy if this does prove to be true?

it would leave us in a tough spot, as we need a left back... we don't even have butchmann anymore that could possibly play... kelly would be playing out of position, and i don't like that... schwarzer will leave too... but that will be it... hopefully greening goes too...

Agger and Jovanovic were awful on the left side against Man City, so I'm not surprised Hodgson is moving for Konchesky. Poor Roy. He inherited a lot of expectations and few players to accomplish them. Should've stayed in London, Roy!

Well, let's hope if this go through, that the Salcido rumours are true. I don't see why we didn't save up some pennies to bring in cover in the form of Nicky Shorey...

Whilst Liverpool may want Konch, I have a feeling that MAF will tell them to shove it, his comments about Roy after he left show how upset he was about it and I think that may affect any chance of Livepool doing any soft of deal with Fulham as long as Roy is manager of Liverpool.

3 and a half mill for a player nearly 30 and a bit injury prone may not be to bad and brigs had a good game against port vale still early days bring in the young players slowley me thinks

Well said woody, let Greening go. Useless. I wasn't there last night, but the Fulham website commentator said Briggs was playing well. Maybe ease him in in the last few minutes of games, maybe a few more cup games depending on the opposition. Don't think they'll loan him out though.
