Bullard told he can leave Fulham

Recommended Posts

Just been on ssn, apparently it was said at the Fulham pre match press conference that if they receive a decent offer for Bullard then they'll consider it. If we haven't got much to spend I think we could do a lot worse than stick a cheeky three million bid in for him.

I think he's an /ok/ player, not the best not the worst pending you get him for a reasonable amount.

 

the appearance he gives is one of those down to earth team spirit/morale building players though which is always good, esp when it comes to the likes of us.

Hasn't been playing well of late has he?

 

Scored a class goal against Man City a couple of weeks ago IIRC, not sure how his overall play has been though.

 

One thing he would bring would be quality set pieces.

Think I said it in the summer but I'd take him as a squad player for a couple of million. Stronger alternative in the middle to Cacapa or Geremi IMO. Then again, Geremi's frightening accuracy when it comes to spotting Owen's movements might come in useful yet.

Thing is with Geremi's free kicks is he blobs half of them too far and half hit the first man, so Owen takes a punt that it'll end up at the back stick and puts 50% of them away :aye:

I think he's a canny player and definitely would have him, but it shows how far we've fallen since Souness took over that we'd happily have him starting for us.

Bullard told he can go

 

Fulham ready to sell midfielder in January

 

 

 

Sky Sports News sources understand Jimmy Bullard has been told he can leave Fulham in the January transfer window.

 

Despite having shown arguably the best form of his career at Craven Cottage it appears Bullard's future lies away from West London.

 

The former Wigan favourite has this season voiced a desire to engage in contract renewal talks with Fulham, but Roy Hodgson met his request by urging patience.

 

Earlier this month player and club did sit down for discussions but it would appear an accord has failed to be struck, with Bullard's existing deal having a year-and-a-half left to run.

 

Hodgson has conceded a big money offer could prove difficult for Fulham to ignore and it now looks as though the club are resigned to losing one of their prized assets.

 

A number of high-profile top-flight clubs have been linked with an approach for a player who has broken into Fabio Capello's squad of late.

 

Sky Sports News understands no verbal or written contract offer was ever put to Bullard.

Decent player, falls into the same category as the likes of Barton, Reo Coker, Jenas, Parker and Sidwell as in what standard of player he is.

 

Agreed, but being the exception of being the only one who delivers quality set pieces.

I'd like to see him here. He does have a nice touch on the ball. That extra bit quality to add to our squad and lets face it, the players we want aren't exactly going to be jumping through hoops to sign for us...!

 

1st choice

Jonas

Bullard

Barton

Zoggy

 

and that lot...!

Geremi

Butt

Guthrie

Duff

Last season he had 2 goals and 3 assists, hardly setting the league alight.

 

He also had a bust leg for 6 months, surprised you cant remember seeing as it was against us.

 

Theres also more to a midfielders game than scoring goals, or else why does Butt play every week?

If anyone on here thinks we can turn our noses up at him they want their heads looked at.

 

We should be snapping their hands off for a decent midfielder on the cheap. I think he'd be willing to come as well.

I doubt he'd be on the cheap though. An English international, who can take a set-piece and scores from midfield wil lprobably cost upwards of £6m.

He's also apparently an ego in the dressing room aswell (team bonding etc).

 

I'd definately take him, basically agreeing with what people have said already.

maybe not though.....sports in general seem to have a "what have you done for me lately" mentality........I'd say 4-5 mil, he's had some injury problems in the last couple years and less than stellar output

 

imo how can we not take a stab at him anyway, awefully thin in terms of first team players at SJP

We can sign him for nowt on a pre contract cant we? Not sure about him being an ego? Every interview ive seen with him he seems like the most down to earth footballer you could meet

Can no-one see the danger? He'll spray Ralgex on Barton's jockstrap for a laugh, and Joey will pummel his face to a bloody pulp in a frenzied attack.....
