Fulham manager Martin Jol is looking at the possibility of bringing Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku to the club on a loan deal. The Belgian international has grown frustrated with the lack of first-team opportunities at the club, despite arriving for £ 18 million in the last summer transfer window.

Euro 2012 Golden Boot: - Group A Lowdown

With the European Championships slowly clicking into gear, Ben Cove picks out his runners and riders from Group A…

Group A
Greece: 5.50 to win the group, 2.30 to reach the last 16 and 75.00 to win the tournament.
Greece will rely heavily on goals from Georgios Samaras in their quest to emulate their shock victory in Euro 2004. But the Celtic striker isn’t having the best of times of late, as his measley total of just six SPL goals this season demonstrates.


Fulham manager Martin Jol has said that he is extremely hopeful that Fulham will be able to sign striker Pavel Pogrebnyak on a long-term deal shortly.

Pavel Pogrebnyak arrived at the club in the January transfer window and he will be a free transfer at the end of this season.

However, Fulham have not been able to secure the first option on the player when he becomes a free agent. As a result, he has been linked with a move to a number of top clubs across Europe after scoring a lot of goals in his first few months in England.


Fulham striker Pavel Pogrebnyak has done little to suppress the speculation that he could sign with the London club on a permanent deal after moving into London on a permanent basis.

The striker, who is on a six-month loan deal from Germany, has impressed in the Fulham first-team this season.

There have been many reports that the Fulham will be interested in converting the deal into permanent one when the two clubs discuss a potential transfer once the season is over. Pavel Pogrebnyak struggled for goals during his time at Germany, but he has since been a revelation in England.


Fulham manager Martin Jol is of the opinion that his club can finish in the top six this season.

Fulham struggled under Mark Hughes the previous season, and were once again expected to do the same under Martin Jol as well.

This is the first time Martin Jol has made his return to English football after being sacked by Tottenham a few seasons back. He impressed as the Tottenham manager and is once again continuing to do so as the Fulham manager.


Fulham manager Martin Jol has said that he is extremely happy with the impact of the January signing Pavel Pogrebnyak on the team.

Pavel Pogrebnyak arrived at Fulham during the January transfer window, but he was not expected to be the first team player for Fulham.


Fulham have exited from both the FA Cup and the Europa league this season. However, Fulham midfielder Simon Davies has said that this is going to be beneficial for the club this season.

This is due to the fact that a club has to play a number of matches before achieving anything of significance in the Europa league.


Fulham midfielder Dickson Etuhu has said that Fulham's match with Stoke City is much more important than the match with leaders Manchester City.

Fulham will be taking on these two clubs over the next few weeks. Martin Jol's have been unimpressive in the Premier league since the start of the season, but the midfielder believes that it will be about time Fulham star performing once again to their best in the league.


A number of clubs have been showing interest in increasing their stadium capacities and facilities.

Fulham have become the latest club to do so after they have filed an application to the local council for increasing the capacity of their stadium to 30,000.

Craven cottage is one of the oldest grounds in England and it currently has a capacity of around 26,000. However, Fulham have realised that their stature as one of those regular clubs in the Premier League demands a much bigger ground and they are planning to increase their capacity by around 4000.
