Fulham turn attention to Williamson

Fulham turn attention to Williamson

Fulham have moved on from John Joe O`Toole but are still keen to add a Hornet to the band of merry men at Craven Cottage.

Oh yes, whilst rumours surrounding Irish U21 O`Toole appear to be yesterday`s news, Hodgson is reportedly lining up a £1.5m move for Watford`s Lee Williamson instead, according to the Mirror.

Williamson was once dubbed as "one of the best midfielders in the Championship" by former boss Boothroyd`s rampant motivation machine but has since been in and out of the team under Brendan Rodgers.

Yep, he`s got a shot on him, does have a bit of a reputation for putting over a good set-piece and likes a bit of niggle but £1.5m for a journeyman player seems a big gamble.

In all fairness, here at VitalWatford we`d question if Willo was actually 'Premiership quality` or the get up and at em grafter that the Cottagers would desire to fill the boots of Jimmy Bullard…

Still, would be a great deal for the club if they can secure that kind of cash.

Not exactly flattering, the description of this lad:) Its typical for us to buy some lottery ticket from the Championship! Since Bullards exit everything is going haywire at The Cottage! Cheers from a Fulham fan and good luck for the season.

I think Willo is a good player but he's stretched at Championship level if I am honest. Then again with the likes of Northampton and Rotherham on his CV we shouldn't expect him to be Champions League should we!!!! He's not young either.

i hope it is just paper talk

we can not afford to lose williamson at this stage,we don't have much deph in the squad,to lose lee now would be a blow,especially now that bridcutt is coming to the end of his loan spell.for me i would rather watford offload the like's of kabba,poom,or even gareth williams,surely that would decrease the wage bill considerbrably,great result last night,i think were come away with a point or even three aganst the wolves,come u ''ourns''

He is an average championship player, but bearing in mind that when the fulham manager was at blackburn he paid 7 million for christian Daley, so that tells you a lot about his judgement
29/01/2009 17:06:00
so will you lot sell him?
29/01/2009 19:48:00
if i was Rogers i wouldn't sell him but like he said money speaks

It also appears that Watford are about to sign Inverness Caledonian Thistle midfielder Don Cowie (who's also a target for Rangers) so either Williamson or O'Toole might well be moved on to make way.
