Hopefully the news from Craven Cottage tonight will prevent my son from switching allegiances. It was perhaps inevitable, but after yesterday’s game he came to one of those markers on the road of life. “You know, Fulham really aren’t very good. I think it’s time we choose another team,” he was heard to say.
Still, with a new manager, a new shirt coming in the summer, (though hopefully they’ll still be wearing them in the Premier League), I can make sure there’s no way he will go to the dark side.
So thanks to Cookie for 10 years of service as a player and manager, but it was clearly time for a change – in fact that time was probably a couple of months ago.
Just in time, Chairman Mo, just in time.
