Re: Fulham

I recall statements coming out of Fulham after they had won the play-off final that there would be no major spending or restructuring of the squad that had won them promotion. Just a few matches in and the owner presses the panic button.

The other problem is that we have players within the squad who, on past history, are very unlikely to play a full season without spending weeks/months on the treatment table. Brady and JBG spring to mind.

With regards to Gibson it was just an unfortunate signing and we were just happy to get shot and cut our losses the best way we could find. We still haven't signed a replacement and Toekowski is rumoured to be on his way soon.

Re: Karlan Grant Huddersfield
