At least we've made an emergency signing of unattached Croatian Mladen Petric. The club website claims he scored five times for Fulham in ten starts last season, though on Wikipedia he's listed as scoring five times in 23 games. Seems to have had a decent career in the Bundisliga with Borussia Dortmund and SV Hamburger though. He's 6ft 1ins tall, so at least has some physical presence, and scored the winner for Croatia when they beat England 3-2 at Wembley. Though on the downside he's 32 years old. Can he replace Andy Carroll? If not we may end up with a relegation struggle. Would be interesting to know what Fulham fans made of him and why he moved on at the end of last season. Meanwhile let's hope that Carroll recovers fast and that he doesn't become another Dean Ashton.
