Eidur Gud to Stay?

Despite playing minor cameo roles in only two games so far in the white of Fulham, our Icelandic loanee, Eidur Gudjohnsen, has dropped a telling hint that he'd like to stay by the banks of the Thames come the Summer.

As of yet, Gudjohnsen hasn't started a game for the Cottagers, however, after entering the fray against Chelsea on Sunday night with 8 minutes to go, the 32 year-old's passion for the English game has been significantly re-infused; thanks in no small part to our humble club.

The striker went on to follow up his substitute appearance with two fine reserve goals against Everton last night, and this, coupled with excellent performances in training has led to much vocal support from manager Mark Hughes.

However, it's Gudjohnsen himself who spoke to the press about his future options following Monday's game:

"Who knows what will happen in the summer? I’m 32, I’m physically fit, injury free and hungry to do well. I believe I still have a lot to give," reflected the ex-Chelsea star.

With that in mind, Gudjohnsen was quick to praise the set up at Craven Cottage; one which has turned many players deemed 'past it', back to the masters of football they once were, with Danny Murphy, Aaron Hughes and Bobby Zamora to name but a few.

“So far, I’ve been very impressed. The set-up is fantastic with such a professional attitude in place. The training is great, with a high intensity - which is what I needed. I feel like I can do well here.

"They have done extremely well over the past couple of seasons, and they want to continue that success. Personally, I can see no reason why they can’t because they have a fantastic structure and philosophy in place.

“They play nice football, and that is something I can relate to. It’s a system I feel very suited to, and I believe in their ambitions."

While it could certainly be argued that we now have strikers-a-plenty at Fulham, I myself would be partial to a sneaky bid for such an intelligent, wise and experienced head to sure up what is, despite its critics, a strong front line.
