Just as Mark Schwarzer is said to have slapped in a transfer request, Fulham have retaliated by slapping a £10 million valuation on him.
Hopefully when everyone calms down and stops slapping they can work something out.
For my money Fulham are exactly right here. Good goalkeepers are, I am almost certain, rarer than we think. We have one of the good ones and, frankly, £3.5 million or whatever Arsenal want to pay is not much use to us if Schwarzer goes. There aren’t enough quality goalkeepers around, and unless we get very lucky, selling him will cost us goals, games, and points. If he won’t sign a new contract, fine, but you don’t let your very best players go for £3.5 million if you can help it.
