'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The King's speech

His head has not been in it for some time now, neither has his heart, and the ball's not been in the net from his boot either. It was going to happen and, with the ink nearly dry on the contract, King Marlon himself spoke to Sky Sports News.


'Once I knew of Fulham's interest there was only one thing on my mind. Obviously I'm disappointed to leave Watford because I've got a lot of fond memories, but this is a new chapter in my life.

'Adrian Boothroyd didn't want me to go, but I knew in my heart it was an opportunity to seize upon. I'm looking forward to the challenge.

'I wouldn't be here if I didn't think they had a chance to stay up.'


I think that Marlon will find himself equally frustrated at Craven Cottage as Hodgson's boys hoof the ball up to him, but 5mill is good business, so no-one let on eh?!

In his two and half years in WD18, King notched 37 goals in 87 appearances, some strike rate, but one he has to thank Hendo for also. The peroxide hitman may not hit the press or net as often, but they will sorely miss one another.

Henderson to Fulham anyone? Or Doyley?!

I have mixed feelings about the deal. This is because on the positive side he wont be the player he has been without boothroyd as it shows in his career record he has been fairly poor until he has been at watford. But i feel that collins john wont be great just like ellington. i think watford will muck up in promotion. I hope i get proven wrong cause if they go up i win Ł260.

We seem to have been a bit of an afterthought for Marlon here.
