What chance of getting Andy Johnson back on loan from Fulham?

He's been suffering with injuries, needs to restore his confidence and we desperately need a striker with pace!

Not a chance of getting AJ on loan, as much as that would solve our attacking/goalscoring problems, not gonna happen.

He's on north of 30k a week, which they would expect us to pay, and we can't.

Last time I checked, the pitch of Selhurst Park is not wheelchair accessible. Even is we could afford to pay him, his knee went out again.

Is it really that unrealistic?

He has scored 7 goals in the last two years. If he is going to go out on loan, I doubt that many Premiership clubs would want him.

Was talking to my Fulham season ticket holding mate and he thinks Johnson has lost it since his injuries.

Stranger things have happened. And who says palace have to pay his full salary anyway!

Not necessarily.

If we agreed to a portion and only had him for a couple of months to build up his fitness, we'd be doing Fulham as big a favour as they would be doing us.

Well he has been out a lot and whilst his goalscoring is his main strength, I love the way he chases everything.

However, since he moved to Fulham and then subsequently got injured, I can't help but think that he just isn't the same player.

So you suggest we sign him on loan because he "chases everything"

I heard Ian Wright and Mark Bright want to come back on loan too....

8.0m for a injury prone player, I bet SJ did not know to laugh or cry when he saw that fax land on his desk

I'm not sure how far he is into his contract, but I expect he'll just sit it out until then shopping himself out to clubs.

If he doesn't do anything of note in that time, then I'd expect him to go to a Championship club at best, on far reduced terms.

At the moment, I couldn't see anything happening unless his club want to loan him out and pay most of his wages, just to get him back to fitness and sharpness.

Agreed. He seemed to lose half a yard of pace after this.

(by the way, just to help you out cblock/matty, this comment does not mean that I would suggest re-signing him :))

18-07-2010, 04:19 PM
I was thinking this yesterday, I don't think its that unrealistic with his injuries etc. Since he left us hes scored what 24 goals or so, so I wouldn't think many (if any) premiership clubs would look at him if Fulham wanted to sell him/send out on loan. He would score goals at our level as he has proved. We wouldn't neccesarily have to pay all his wages if some sort of deal is made. Surely if he decided to drop to the championship we would be one of the clubs he would want to go to in regards to his success at his time here. Also he will be nearing 30 years old which I know isnt old but for a footballer he may start to lose his pace, making him less of a threat as he has been against premiership defenders. But i suppose it may come down to what signings Fulham will make in the attacking department to see if he still has a future with the club.

If available maybe Burley should look at this option. I for one would love to see him put the palace shirt on again

He's only half-way through a four-year contract.

AJ to Palace on loan? There's more chance of him climbing to the moon, dodgy knees and all.

18-07-2010, 05:04 PM
Heads people, not hearts. He was good five years ago. Is he still good ? Also even if he was inclined to come, would his loan money be better spent on someone else?

He was hardly injury prone when he played for us.

He's scored 13 in 49 games actually. Not a great record but Fulham will have a tough season I reckon without Hodgson. Whilst I'd love to see him back, after an injury free pre season he could do ok for them now.

He's a ledgend. He's been injured recently and never 1 of fulhams best strikers. I think a 6 month loan would do him gd as theres less stress in the championship. Theres a chance altho even half his wages arent affordable

We need someone who can perform and put the ball in the net. I'm not sure someone who has scores 7 in 2 years and has lost his confidence with huge wages would be the answer. I'd rather get in some one young and hungry and rebuild. Looking back is not the way forward.

Just like a lot of really pacy players, one serious injury and they lose that pace advantage, very difficult to get it back. Without that pace I suspect he's a very average player, very sad cos I loved him while he was here.

AddiscombeCPFC
19-07-2010, 09:03 AM
Ignoring whether he would be a good/bad loan signing, do people honestly think we'll be able to afford the wages of an established premiership striker? Not to mention one that has moved for 8.6m and 10m+.

He was on a reported 40k at Everton, I doubt he will be on a lot less than that for Fulham.

If Fulham and AJ came to an agreement (highly unlikely) to pay off the existing contract, then I am sure we'd definitely be interested.

Until then, I can't see anything happening really. Very rare that players like him go out on loan. Usually sold or on frees.

Fulham goal: The Cottagers are level and in style. Brede Hangeland releases Andy Johnson down the right and his low cross is neatly despatched into the net by Damien Duff.

There's nothing more I'd love to see than an a return for one of the greatest goalscorers in my lifetime make a return at Selhurst. But that would have been when he was at a level to still get goals and make an impact on the team. Sadly we need to look forwards at much better quality than AJ of present. The story is a nothing one anyway... I hope he gets a move to a club where he can get 10 goals plus to still make a name for himself.

The thought of AJ playing the Chamakh role is scary. AJ was all about playing on the last mans shoulder, getting in behind and using his pace. There is no way he could play the 10 role even when he was 26/27 as he doesn't have the technical ability.

It would be hard to think of two more different attacking players than Chamakh and Johnson. AJ was never feted for his touch, vision and play with his back to goal even in his pomp. It was all about pace and instinctive finishing.

I suppose saying Mick Harford could play the Neymar role would be a similar comparison.

Getting AJ back last year would have been a mistake (how many games/goals did he play last year in the end?)

A year on, and with Palace still being in the top division - it would be an even bigger mistake and would be a sign that we have fallen behind other clubs.
