As widely predicted Damien Duff has completed has completed his transfer to Fulham.

The ex-Newcastle player has signed for us for an unknown fee and has joined us with a ringing endorsement from Roy Hodgson on the official club site,

“I am delighted to add a player of his calibre to our squad and welcome the further midfield options he provides us with.”

“I have known Damien for over a decade since he broke into the first team at Blackburn when I was manager, so I`m fully aware of his qualities and I an looking forward to working with him again.”


And as for Damien, he`s quoted as saying,

“I know that having spoken to the manager in recent days that the clubs ambitions remain high and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead.”

Here at Vital Fulham we`d like to officially welcome Damien Duff to Craven Cottage and we`re intrigued to wait and see if his first game, in a Fulham shirt, will be the clash with our rivals from down the road, a club he enjoyed Premier League title success with!

  • Agreed Don. The lad is quality if we can keep him going for most of the season. We don’t want to be seen as doing a Hull with their Jimmy Bullard situation. He has a long history of injuries.

  • That’s what I’m worried about, His quality is excellent, but he is made of glass. I really do hope I’m wrong, but I have this bad feeling that he might play just 10-15 games this season.

  • You are paying him 50k per week for a 30 year old permenent sicknote and he has got to be up there as your highest paid player, good luck with him, think you are going to need it.

  • Yet Teddy, Chelsea, not too long ago, were prepared to pay £17 million for the lad. He may be risky, but at his best he’ll be of great benefit for this football club. Plus, on the bright side, we do have a rather good set of medical staff. They know what they are doing…

  • me too… he can’t be the best paid player on our team… that should go to brede, no? in the prime of his career?
