The Squad Review. Part 1.
With Fulham`s incomings more or less completed, I think the time is right to have a squad review.
Antti Niemi: Undisputed quality, great keeper just needs to be more vocal with his defence but overall I am delighted we have the Finnish keeper and of course he'll be number one this season.
Ricardo Batista: At Wycombe on loan last season was deemed a tad bit eccentric by the Wycombe fans but overall they were pleased with the young Portuguese keeper. Having just signed a new deal, you could expect him depending on his progress to deputise for Niemi next season.
Tony Warner: A wee bit useless but a good third choice keeper in regards to having experience and being a strong presence in the defence.
Moritz Volz: Brilliant when on loan from Arsenal but performances declined at right back under the previous management before last season excelling at central midfield. A true fans favourite and am delighted he is at the Cottage.
Liam Rosenior: This boy is a future England international, his tackling is divine but his failure is passing but if he can improve on this fault boy would we have a right back that is quality.
Carlos Bocanegra: A good squad player, gets important goals, here's hoping he signs a new deal because we love him.
Ian Pearce: Straight to the point, a lot of heart but too old and not good enough for this level.
Franck Queudrue: Failed to settle last season, expect him to move on if Fulham receive a bid of three million pounds onwards.
Paul Konchesky: Good steady left back, had a great first season at West Ham, earning an England clap and playing brilliantly against Argentina unfortunately Fulham are going to have to buy a boat and put it in the Thames for his crossing is that shocking and they'll need to retrieve the balls.
Philippe Christanval: Quality oozes from this guy, unfortunately is always injured and is expected to leave.
Chris Baird: Probably the toughest defender at Fulham, delighted to have him and he is very versatile which adds depth to the squad.
Zat Knight: I won't say stared for Fulham last season instead I'll use the word played. Knight played a lot for Fulham last season and well that's about it really. He was poor but hopefully will vastly improve under Mr Sanchez.
Aaron Hughes: Experienced, tough campaigner, probably past his best but will definitely add something to the Fulham team this forthcoming season.
Tune in tomorrow for a review on the attacking side of the squad.
