Get out yer dosh Al - Fayed!

Get out yer dosh  Al - Fayed!

Fulham boss Chris Coleman has indicated that he is definatly going to spend some of Al - Fayed's dosh, to add to Fulham`s squad when the January transfer window opens, at the beginning of the new year.

The Whites have suffered lot's of injuries so far this season and the Manager has frequently been faced with tough selection decisions.

The midfield has had the brunt of the injury problems with Jimmy Bullard, Papa Bouba Diop, Simon Elliott, Mark Pembridge, Michael Brown, Claus Jensen, Luis Boa Morte and Ahmad Elrich all having reported to the treatment table at various stages this season.

Last Saturday`s defeat to Reading also saw Carlos Bocanegra and Franck Queudrue pick up knocks and they will both be a woory for the Arsenal game.

"We`ve lost Carlos (Bocanegra) and Franck (Queudrue)," said Coleman after Saturday`s game. "Micheal (Brown) and Papa (Bouba Diop) are probably 60-70% fit but we haven`t got a choice really. We`re going to have to do a bit of work in January - even if we had everybody fit and were still in the top ten, we`d have gone in (to the transfer market) anyway. But we`ve got no choice now, we have to.

"There are funds available, that`s the main thing. That`s been made clear to me, which is pleasing. We`ve been working hard on the scouting side and have been all over the world in the last six months. We`ve pretty much identified who we want but, as you know, getting them is difficult."

Fulham have been linked with American Winger, Clint Dempsey (New England Revolution). Ex - Fulham hit - man Steve Marlet [Lorient (France)]. Ivory Coast Midfielder, Felix Ettien [Levante (Spain)]. And, Finnish, attacking midfielder Mika Vayarnen [PSV Eindhoven (Holland)]

We should concentrate on getting some winger and central midfielder's coz our midfield isn't no-where near up to scratch. We need some one like Timmy Simmons at PSV or Routledge from Spurs. Players that can play in different poitions and can be instrumental part of a squad. We have Bullard and Boa Morte at the moment that are influential to the rest of the squad, but Bullard is not a lot of use lying on a operating table, and Boa Morte hasn't been on form since coming back from injury.

Coleman has done wonders with the amounts that he is given but you can only perform so many miracle's, Fulham will never be better than this unless some serious wonger is thrown at the club, Al-Fayad has been an excellent owner but it has not been enough!
