Apparently, thrid time's the charm for Fulham Manager Roy Hodgson in his bid to get Watford striker Marlon King into a Fulham kit. The rumor is that Fulham will pay 5 million pounds for the Jamaican international with a flair for finding the net.
The question remains, will Hodgson also get Eddie Johnson? Haven't heard much news on that front as of late.
Still no word on whether Hodgson will get some defensive help. Fulham's problem has been holding onto leads, which suggests a defensive problem. But if you are adding strikers who can put more goals onto your side of the sheet, it makes it hard for the other team to equalize or beat you.
Still a balanced approach to acquisitions would be nice.
