The Transfer of Ben Foster

Roy Hodgson has told Blues that he wants them to make a quick decision on the availability of Ben Foster for permanent transfer.

I’m not going to write a match report for the Fulham game. There are so many synonyms for gutless, and having left myself with fifteen minutes to go feeling physically sick at just how bad we’d played, I couldn’t do it justice. Suffice it to say, that was the kind of performance that not only gets you relegated, but deserves relegation.
