American striker Eddie Johnson is on his way to Fulham FC in England as his transfer has gone through. He has received his work permit after a tribunal and is expect to help the Fulham bid to avoid relegation. Johnson played his last MLS game at Robertson Stadium in Houston this past MLS season and will be expected to produce immediately.
“I have made no secret of the fact that I believe the squad lacks a certain balance in specific areas of the team and following the loss of Brian McBride to injury this is true of our strike force,” said manager Roy Hodgson.
The trade may allow Clint Dempsey to face defenses more yet alot will be expected of Johnson.
I am excited to see if he can prove himself out in the English Premier League yet am I concerned about his strength mentality. Maybe Dempsey can help him through the process. It is a known fact that Johnson was a high maintenance project in MLS. I doubt he will get coddled in England.
Lets hope he can adjust.
