  • Fulham ‘keeper cleared of serious injury January 2nd, 2007 Fulham

    I normally have a little whince when there is a horror injury in football, but I’m strong of stomach and watch on largely unflustered. However, that changed yesterday when I screamed like a girl when Antti Niemi fell on his neck and went all wrong-ways. Well, after being aghast at the whole thing, I was thrilled to hear that he’s been released from hospital after doctors cleared him of any spinal injuries…

  • Everton want to swap Lada for Rolls Royce (or at least Simon Davies for Luis Boa Morte) December 4th, 2006 Everton

    Sneaky Everton are apparently trying to con Fulham into swapping Luis Boa Morte (the Cottagers’ skipper and talisman) for Simon Davies (mediocre Welsh midfielder). The Mirror reports that the Toffees want to exchange £8 million-rated Boa Morte for Davies, a player they paid an over-inflated £4 million for last year. You have to wonder whether […]

  • Volzy still loves David Hasselhoff October 25th, 2006 Fulham

    Fulham‘s Moritz Volz has been trying to move away from his reputation as the Hoff’s number one fan.
