Fulham Release a List of Players Who Are Departing

New, comment

There are really no surprises here. Almost almost all these players were on our list of likely departures.

Fulham have announced a list of players who will be departing. Damian Duff, Steve SidwellGiorgos Karagounis, Mahamadou DiarraJohn Arne Riise, Derek Boateng, John Heitinga, Matthew Briggs, and Neil Ethridge were all senior players who were let go. If there are any surprises it would be Matthew Briggs and Neil Ethridge. Both are still young enough to keep around and could probably do a job in the Championship, even if it's only to be a backup. The club does have a lot more information about them than I do, so I'm not going to get too worked up over them.

Some youth players were also let go. Charles Banya, Alex Brister, Dino Islamovic, Ronny Minkwitz, Max Oberschmidt and Josh Pritchard are all leaving the club. I don't know enough about any of them to be upset. If there's anything of interest it's that Muamer Tankovic wasn't listed even though he's publicly stated that he's leaving.

I would like to take a moment to reflect back on the players who were especially good servants to the club. Especially Damian Duff and Steve Sidwell. They weren't always perfect, but they played hard. And they had two of the best songs of all time in the Ginger Iniesta and Duff Will Tear You Apart.
