This Bernard signing just shows there's all sorts going on behind the scenes. Wouldn't be surprised if we did something similar with a CB tomorrow.

Does give one hope.

DCL on loan gives more credence to Walcott playing centrally.

That or Silva doesn't rate him

it can be two things

/still, unlikely to go into the season with just Tosun and Niasse as central options, yeah?

Walcott is 10x the finisher that DCL is.

A loan is exactly what DCL needs. One where he starts every game.

Problem is, do we have a partner we trust that way?  And we would also likely need the option to recall him in January if injuries strike.

I'd say we are competing with Wolves and Fulham.  They've had a sneaky good window, and kept their key players (and manager).  I'm never gonna give the Hammers much credit, but as with Barcodes, that might just be extreme bias kicking in.

Shad Khan is one hell of a good owner, having massively turned around the moribund Jacksonville/London Jaguars at the NFL level.  He seems intent on turning Fulham around, too - and not just staying up.
