Just two quick bullets here:
• Various sources reporting that Eddie Johnson is now back in London ready to–hopefully–start off a new campaign with the Cottagers. Reports says Johnson was to be sold to Greek club Aris where he finished up last year, but Fulham asked for too high a transfer prices, somewhere in the range of $500K to $1M.
Carlos Ruiz–he of the stomp job on Tim Howard’s head back in June of 2007–is set to be the replacement, according to MLS Soccer.
• Meanwhile, Ottmar Hitzfeld is rumored by some to be on Fulham’s radar. Hitzfeld was replaced by Jurgen Klinsmann at Bayern Munich back in 2008.
