I get the impression that climbing back into the Premier League, after being relegated, could be a task we have to get right-first-time or else we could well spend some time in the wilderness that is the Championship.
With the squad set to undertake a shuffle this summer, an inevitable occurrence courtesy of our dream going sour, it is essential that the board, prompted by Scott Parker, bring in the right kind of player.
To climb back into the top-flight, we need to keep the nucleus of our side but add two or three experienced Championship players, players who have tasted the sweet success promotion brings.
This morning, the local media source, the Bournemouth Echo, is linking Fulham with one such player, Harry Arter.
Arter, still a mere 29-years-of-age, is back at Bournemouth, after a season-long loan deal with Cardiff City.
The Republic of Ireland international midfielder is said to be interesting Fulham and I’m of the opinion that he is just the kind of player we need to assist us in embarking on what we all hope will be a promotion season.
Sat here in the editorial chair, I’ll monitor the situation and report back accordingly.
