Couldn't resist this. Had a quick peak at the NewsNow headlines to see the (marvelously unreliable) Vital Fulham headline that Jari Litmanen may feature on Saturday. Couldn't resist clicking on that link but before I'd even had time to read it the Evening Echo was up with a counter headline that our Finish mega-star would definitely miss the game due to match fitness. I should know better really. Obviously we're never going to see Litmanen play in a Fulham shirt, but the timing gave me a chuckle. If nothing else Jari could go down in Fulham history as the player with the most bewildering array of excuses for not being fit. I believe his latest set back was related to an ear injury ...
(Actually, feel a little bit harsh on the Vital team there. They have at least kept enthusiastic throughout a very tough season and if nothing else know how to write a good headline!)
