Jon Harley arrived at Craven Cottage in the exciting summer before Jean Tigana’s side embarked on their first Premier League season. He made the short switch from Stamford Bridge as a young left back of some promise, having made 42 appearances and lifted the FA Cup with Chelsea in 2000, and was seen as the successor to an ageing Rufus Brevett at left back. His Fulham career never really took off for two reasons: injuries prevented him from getting a clear run at the outset and Brevett’s stubborn refusal to accept being second choice. Harley’s most memorable moment in a white shirt came at Loftus Road against Aston Villa, when he scored a sensational goal from 40 yards that was easily the goal of the season. After a couple of successful loans at Sheffield United, he signed for the Bramall Lane outfit after being released by Fulham in the summer of 2004.
