Whilst we look over our shoulders, Woy takes on Juve!
Remember those Champions League pipe dreams, with Eggert giving it all that and West Ham fans lapping it up like Galloway in the Big Brother house? Well as we look anxiously over our shoulders after that inept surrender on Saturday, the mighty Fulham, with home gates a fraction of ours, take on Juve tomorrow.
Look at Fulham's team and there is nobody very special. Konchesky, Paintsil and Zamora weren't considered good enough for West Ham. Duff was regarded as a shot bolt at Newcastle. Schwarzer was rescued from the scrap heap. Greening looked no more than ordinary at West Brom. Davies was shown the door by Tottenham. And so it goes on. What have Fulham got that we haven't? Easy. A canny manager with years of experience behind him and an ability to organise a team so that its whole is better than the sum of its parts. Upson, Cole, Diamanti, Parker, Behrami and Green would all walk into Woy's team!
Sullivan and Gold will no doubt be looking across at Fulham green with envy. Maybe, just maybe, there is a lesson to be learned!
