    Don't know how accurate it is, like I said I found while lurking on the Offal messageboard. I think should add that it does have a question mark in its headline about Bocanegra leave Fulham, so it's not a certainty (and they're not claiming so either).

    According to some rumours Newcastle have offered 3 mil and Steve Harper for Boa.Now while Fulham may need a Keeper on loan this deal would be a bad move for Fulham.Harper is a decent keeper but, really all Fulham need is a keeper on loan until Drobny and Crossley can play.And 3 mil could not find a replacement for Boa. Boa is worth at least 6 mil probably even more. Boa had 8 goals and 11 assists last season. Only like 3 other players had over 11 assists. Boa was even injured for like 5 games and missed like the first 3 games. Then the 8 goals was one of the top goals scored for a midfielder.

    Fulham may make a move for AC Milan keeper Christian Abbiati, possibly in time for him to start Saturday. This would be a fantastic signing, and would possibly prevent Boa Morte from leaving in a package deal for Harper.

    This would definitely be a great move! I did read however that Arsenal and Everton are also interested in Abbiati's services. That being said, I am guessing those two clubs would easily outspend us. Thus, I am doubting this will happen. However, I can always hope.

    Hopefully he will choose Fulham because he would be assured the #1 shirt for all intents and purposes, which is the reason he doesn't want to stay at AC Milan. Going to Everton or Arsenal he would be fighting for it.

    Good point. Let's hope that ugly thing called money does not get involved. If it does, lights out for Fulham.

    Abbiati would be a great signing. But, right now he is at Genoa and if they can win the appeal in Italy and not drop down to Serie C then he will probably stay with them.He was also lineked with alot of other clubs in Italy and it would be a better move for him if he stayed there. In the NT for Italy they dont like picking players that dont play in Italy.I mean Rossi from United wasnt even on their U-20 team and hes better than any forward they have.He even has said i dont want to play for the US i want to play for Italy and he still dosent get into the U-20 team.So if another Serie A team wants Abbiati then he would probably go to that team.

    Looks like Marlet is out, should be heading to Wolfsburg soon.

    I didn't really follow the EPL or Fulham when they signed him, so could someone explain why Fulham paid 13.5 million pounds for him? The year before he signed he scored 12 goals in 31 games for Lyon, that hardly justifies 13.5 million pounds.And where did Fulham get that much money to begin with?

    That was the era of the big signings bubble, everyone 'competing' for players against the "Big Boys"... Al Fayed purse was still open and Tigana is the one who thought he would fit into his scheme.
    MAF's suit against Tigana is partially about that buy.

    Who is our GK this weekend if we don't get someone from outside the club?

    I have heard Crossley is going to be healthy and starting this weekend. I would guess Batista will be the backup.

    Not sure if this belongs in this thread, but Carlos Bocanegra was not included in the US squad for the upcoming US World Cup Qualifiers. This might make him want to get out of Fulham sooner rather than later.

    I thought Boca was left out due to injury? Plus, Coleman could have said to Arena that would like to keep at least one of the players, since he has a small club.

    oh oh...we forgot to have the club or country debate this summer in the offseason

    oh well...next year. I'm sure it wouldn't be too much of an argument though considering the state of soccer in this country.

    Perhaps Cookie asked Arena to keep Carlos back in London, but I have a feeling he is sending him a message that if he does not get first team football on a regular basis that his place on the US team is in jeopardy.
