Fulham's Fabulous European Dream Continues

Fulham’s amazing transformation under Roy Hodgson just keeps reaching new heights and sending their fans in to raptures. I know I’ve written about Roy Hodgson and the fact that the British press have virtually ignored his career until he took over at Fulham, but no-one could have expected this level […]

Roy Hodgson Has Nothing to Apologize For

The powers that be in the Premier League tend to get all uptight when a club manager suggests that he’s going to rest his starters for whatever reason. This is somehow an affront to the integrity of the competition and unfair to the other clubs fighting to avoid relegation or […]

Fabulous Fulham Send The Old Lady Crashing Out Of Europe

European football occasionally throws up the odd freak result, but sometimes you witness a display of football brilliance so sharp it takes your breath away. Tonight, Fulham dazzled and displayed such panache against the tottering giants of Italian football, Juventus, that you had to check that things had really happened. […]

Is Roy Hodgson Playing With Scared Money?

While Fulham needs a win in Basel today to advance to the knockout stage of the Europa League, Roy Hodgson doesn’t seem to think this is a must-win game for his club. He told reporters on Monday that he planned to run out the reserves for this match, saying that […]

Hodgson and Fulham Set To Continue The Good Work

Over the years since he bought an ailing and abject club, Mohamed Al Fayed has certainly made some “interesting” decisions over the years. Whilst Mickey Adams was rewarded for taking the team up to Division One by being sacked in September 1997,  after Al  Fayed deemed him “not high profile […]

Roy Hodgson Has To Be The Manager Of The Year

On 28 December Roy Hodgson accepted the managers post at Premier League side Fulham. The Cottagers’ immediate future was looking bleak – in the bottom three, with just 14 points on the table. The revival was hardly immediate either, taking just two points from his first five league games in charge. Further to this Fulham […]

Not a Happy Guus While Rafa’s Going No Where,

I’m happy Guus is not as thrilled about Chelsea’s 1-0 win as I am. A bit of a side bar before I get into the news tonight. Chelsea are extremely lucky they are a goal to the good heading into their Champions League second leg. For starters, I don’t believe […]

Fulham Continue To Progress Under Hodgson

Why doesn’t Roy Hodgson get the credit he deserves in the United Kingdom? As I’ve mentioned before, In Scandinavia and Italy, he’s held in high regard, in  Britain people point to his sacking at Blackburn Rovers back in1997. With 33 points gained so far this season, Fulham are one win […]

Wenger Criticism Is Wide Of The Mark

In the immediate aftermath of Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat at Craven Cottage on  the second Saturday evening of the Premiership, several pundits queued up to pass judgement on Arsenal, the players who performed and the lack of signings. Two games into the season and Arsenal have no chance of winning anything, […]

Hodgson Looks To Build On The Great Escape

Roy Hodgson is one of the great unsung English managers of the last 30 years and I’m a big fan of England’s most underrated manager. A polite, erudite professor of the game and an intelligent, well spoken man, he’s simply never received the recognition his career and achievements deserve in England due to the majority […]
