‘Average Championship player’ – Some Fulham fans have been disappointed with this summer signing

Published

on

Fulham completed the permanent signing of Bobby Reid from Cardiff last month.

The Jamaican joined Fulham on-loan at the start of the season, with a view to a permanent deal.

He started slowly and took a while to get his first goal, but he found form in the run-up to New Year, and Scott Parker and Fulham chose to make his stay permanent.

But with only one goal in his last nine, five in 28 Championship appearances all season, has Reid lived up to expectations at Fulham this season?

Everybody in the league knows about his quality. He claimed the Championship Golden Boot only two seasons ago with Bristol City, but his Premier League move with Cardiff didn’t work out.

Which club does David Stockdale play for?

We asked Fulham fans of the Facebook group ‘There’s Only One F in Fulham‘ whether they think that Reid has proved a good signing this season, or whether he’s been a disappointing one.

Here’s what they had to say:

Brian Tea: I think he’s often been played out of position hence the lower than expected goal tally.

Roger Burbridge: Hugely. He does not bring much to the team. Bristol City were happy to get rid of him and even Cardiff didn’t think he’s good enough.

Martin Budge: No, because he hasn’t played in a position that guarantees him goals.

Tom Marshall: A lot more to come from him, but not sure he’s been worth the money we paid.

TJ Carter: Would be a lot more effective if he played just off Mitrovic.

Matt Keen: He’s the only player who moves at more than a walk off the ball.

Paul Fraser: An average Championship player will be completely out of his depth if we were to go up.
