  1. oh dear. Eddie being taken off twice by the worst team in the championship isn’t a great sign. Nor is it a great place for him to find his feet, I don’t imagine, but still.

    1. Yeah, not good news at all.

      But, it’s not like PNE’s service is all that great to begin with. They’ve scored 32 goals in 31 games — only Palace, Sheffied United, and Scunthorpe have less — while conceding a league high 57. Their leading scorer Jon Parkin isn’t even with the team anymore.

  2. Dikgacoi is making noises about playing for palace come the seasons end, which because of the lack of options here, is fair play. If he does well, hopefully he will get another shot here, but I am not holding my breath.

    Eddie. Oh Dear. Back to the US at seasons end methinks.

    Marsh-Brown – this is the loan I am most interested in, he appears to have slotted straight in to the MK Dons side which are a decent shout for the playoffs. He is gaining valuable experience and might actually have a future at Fulham!

    1. I do find loans really instructive. The type of club that wants a player, then how he does there, tells us a lot. Marsh-Brown has done himself wonders (although you’d have thought the same about Wayne Brown, too). If Eddie still can’t score in the Championship then this probably makes any debate about his future at Fulham irrelevant. You’d have hoped for some kind of Robert Earnshaw style effect (good at one, not at another) but he’s not shown that really.

      1. Whoops. Didn’t realise he was that old. Or that he had gone. Saw his entire 11 minute Fulham first team career a couple of years back and just assumed he was younger.
