Jimmy Bullard? You`re 'Aving a larf!
At this time of year, journalists are in competition with department stores. Which can start first, speculation about the January transfer window or promotions for Christmas? The journos have a slight edge at the moment, due to brain dead stories like the one linking Fulham`s Jimmy Bullard with Bolton.
It originated in that bastion of truth and honesty, the News of the World. Apparently Roy Hodgson doesn`t 'fancy` the player. A bit bloody stupid playing him every week then isn`t it?
Bullard still has two years to run on his current deal, has not expressed any desire to leave and is on the fringes of the England squad. In addition, Fulham have what looks like the beginning of a promising midfield, which very much includes the former West Ham trainee.
C`mon lads, we know there`s a shortage of club stories due to the international break, but you`ll have to do better than this.
