It’s been a horrid start to the season for Fulham and Martin Jol. While you would confidently state that, on paper Fulham have way too good a squad to go down, they need to stop the rot and quickly if they don’t want to find themselves in a relegation scrap come spring.
Each time we have seen them play this season they just seemed to lack the sort of desire required to be successful in The Premier League. There is so much talent in that squad but there seems to exist complacency also.
As well as addressing the mood of his current squad Martin Jol will surely add to his roster of players in the winter window. Fulham need a bit of spark in the centre of the park.
Various reports suggested this week that Manchester United midfielder Anderson may move to Fulham on loan in January.
Anderson cost Manchester United a small fortune when he joined the club in 2007 but really hasn’t done himself justice or staked a claim to a full-time spot in the side. But he’s a full Brazilian international and a household name in the football world.
He is the sort of player who needs to be playing week in week out in order to maintain his fitness. Anderson hasn’t been afforded that luxury in his time at Manchester United due to competition for places and a spate of niggling injuries.
It’s still only 25 but it feels like the right time to him to move on and have a fresh start. We think that if he played every game he could become a superb midfielder once more. He is absolutely full of beans and generally has a really positive effect on his teammates – Anderson is a born winner but simply hasn’t imposed himself at United.
Let’s see the boy in action. Fulham fans, would you welcome Anderson to Craven Cottage or would he just add to the list of under-performers?
