Tony Thorpe was a long term target who joined Fulham in February from Luton Town for £800,000 but the centre forward struggled to replicate the form he had shown for the Hatters in his short spell at Craven Cottage. He scored three goals in seventeen appearances before signing for Bristol City in the summer of 1998.
