Q: You sit here as the new manager of Fulham. Is this your dream job?

Q: The facilities at the club are fantastic, are you excited about the opportunity to work in such an environment?

A: With being a player here, I have witnessed the clubs facilities from a players perspective, and as a previous player I know that the facility's are great here! But it isn't all about facilities, players also have to put the effort into developing.


Q: How involved do you intend to be in the day-to-day running of the club?

A: I intend to be involved as much as time allows me.


Q: Last question Jimmy, which competition will be your main priority with Fulham this season?

Cheers man, I'll try to keep at it but updates wont always be fast, got other things to do at the moment as well :)
I recently simmed 30 years of football (there was a reason don't worry ;) ) and Fulham became a real powerhouse in the premiership after about 20 years, i'll be keeping an eye on this to see if you can do it quicker... also Jimmy is a legend!

Awesome, I've already made a few decent signings and on all my saves I've used the 4-2-3-1 formation I seem to do well so lets hope so :D

Bullard unveils first signing as manager of Fulham!

http://www.asianfootballfeast.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Lucas-Neill.jpg
It has been announced today by new manager Jimmy Bullard that Fulham have completed a deal for experienced International footballer Lucas Niell. Lucas is currently valued at £300k and was quickly snapped up by Bullard for free after his contract with Galatasary expired.

Bullard has made it clear that the squad needs a combination of experience and youth to succeed, so don't be surprised if we see Jimmy agree a deal for a younger player in the near future.

With the arrival of Niell, there has also been a departure seeing Kieran Richardson join Stoke City on loan, for a fee of £1.4m. We are aware that there is a buy-out clause on this deal, but no figure has currently been released.
Good luck! Keep hunting those bargains. :)

Cheers! I have been doing, brought in a whole lot of youth for the future and 1 or 2 first team players for now, only one transfer over £1.4m so think I've done well with budgeting so far. :)
Loan Danny Wilson :P always does well for almost every Championship and mid-table club for me.

Got Briggs-Hangeland-Niell-Riether as my back 4, can't see him beating any of them into the starting XI, thanks for the recommendation though:)

Fulham sign 4 great youth Prospects!
We have recently received news that Fulham manager Jimmy Bullard has added 4 new additions to his side. However, Bullard has made them all fully aware that they will need to impress in the under 18's squad before being able to relish a challenge for a place in the first team.

The four players signed are known to be: Wesley Said, joining from Stade Rennais FC for a price of £1.4m

Juanje, who joins from Seville for £1m, Alberto Ruiz, who joins from Malaga for £900k


(Can't find an image for there two, sorry!)

and Saul, who joins the cottagers for £1.3m.

As all the 3 Spanish players are attacking midfielders, they could become a deadly trio together in years to come.

Bullard unveils new star with the release of the new 2012/13 season home kit !
Along with the new kit release, Fulham FC also displayed their newest addition to the squad, Stuart Holden from Bolton.





The transfer took place for a believed sum or around £7.5m, and Bullard states that soon he will be a fan favourite, as he will be playing the main playmaking role at MC. Bullard has also issued a statement that a new CAM has arrived at the club, but the mystery player is yet to be reviled...
Nice kits and nice idea super-imposing Holden's face onto it ;)
