:doh:
His contract was not renewed at the end of the 2015/6 season - presumably SJ didn't fancy him and he went to Wigan

I think he's only played a couple of PL matches for Brighton

Think it was TK, not SJ  :022:
:doh:
I take it you are not a TK fan...?
I'm not either!

I have been around Fulham for a good while now.  Accepting the fact we always struggle no matter which league we compete in I wonder why at some point the club cannot enlist some up and coming goal scorers.  We always seem to settle on some older journeyman types or the younger middle of the road guys.   No offense to the club but creativity at the moment is simply non-existent.

Stop taking the drugs mate  :doh:

Good luck to him. He was not the most brilliant but i prefer him to many bigger name players i have seen, andi think he was much demonised unfairly on fulham social media.
Would i have him back?  Well not playing this style of football. But in a different system, i think so.

Why do people particularly want Villa relegated? Not sure what they have done to become an object of dislike?

I've seen numerous comments from their fans (enough to conclude it's the general sentiment of their fans) that, essentially, because they're such a "big" club it's better for English football to have clubs like them in the PL than "little" clubs like Fulham (and Norwich, Burnley, Watford, Bournemouth et al) who'll never challenge for the top spots. Being one of the five English clubs to win the European Cup seems to make them think they're still/eternally entitled to be treated as a top club like Liverpool and Man Utd and will challenge those teams again sometime soon. Leeds fans seem to have similar views. Feel a bit sorry for them really... but would still love to see relegation being them back to reality.

Whilst i care not if they stay up or go down, i am aware that many people think that it is better to have the prem populated with so called big clubs. Big meaning traditional big city clubs with large stadium that won things when the dinosaurs  still ruled the planet.

Unfortunately that would mean forrest and derby under clough would not have happened, or wimbledon and all the other aspirational clubs that turn the cosy old order on its head. I believe you should be there on merit not because of your past. Villa have been run dreadfully so desrved what they got because they were delusionally living in the past. It is a shame for supporters when owners are poor, we should know. But i hate the media obsession with big clubs. Leeds is a particular gripe, the media keep saying they deserve to be in the prem. No they don't, their team and management do not merit it.

In fact the rules are endlessly changed to favour the rich, particularly substitutes. The idea originally was a substitute just for injury, then ce tactical changes were allowed and them multiple substitutes it meant the rich could expand  squads and destabilise the idea of it being a fair contest. No replays, penalty shoot outs, the loan system all work in favour of the richer clubs. I personallthink football is morally bankrupt.

I just want them relegated so pundits can shut up about "doing a Fulham". Gets tedious when you're looking for team news and half of the articles are about Villa.

Nice guy, had a head like a 50p piece though.

Headers NEVER went in the direction he intended - usually just looped straight up, backwards, sideways etc.

He might do OK in a certain style of team (I.e Burnley where defence is very well drilled and height / strength is valued over playing out from the back) but there’s no way he would have got anywhere in a Slav team as completely the wrong profile of defender for an SJ team. We let him go at the right time for all parties as would have just rotted on the bench / in the reserves.

I wish him well as always seemed like a good bloke.
