Another Irish Connection for Fulham!
If the tabloids are to be believed, then Lawrie Sanchez is intent on bringing a strong Northern Irish spine to our side.
After having already been linked to David Healy (Leeds), Aaron Hughes (Aston Villa) and Steven Davis (Aston Villa) today the tabloids are carrying a report that Chris Baird (Southampton) is our latest target.
Indeed, it`s actually being reported that Southampton have turned down a bid, in the region of £2.5 million for their defender.
What puzzles us; is whether our new manager is viewing life through green-tinted spectacles with regards to the transfer market.
When the transfer window opens, perhaps he should be reminded that whilst his achievements whilst manager off Northern Ireland are worth praising, there are other players on the market other than those he managed whilst employed by the Northern Irish FA.
