Chris Coleman landed one of his top targets in the summer of 2004 by signing Tomasz Radzinski for a cut-price £1.75m after the Canadian international burnt his badges with Everton by criticising David Moyes, rejecting a new contract and telling Wayne Rooney he should leave Goodison Park. Radzinski never replicated the goalscoring exploits he displayed on Merseyside at Craven Cottage, largely because his versatility meant he willingly lined up on either wing rather than up front under Coleman.

He still weighed in with crucial goals – including what proved to be the winner in Fulham’s first win over Arsenal for nearly four decades. That finish at the far post, where he flew in before colliding with the advertising hoardings at the Putney End and having to substituted due to concussion, typified his bravery. Radzinski never let anybody down and covered an extraordinary amount of ground throughout the 90 minutes. He scored 17 goals in 117 appearances for the Whites before being released by Lawrie Sanchez after Fulham had avoided relegation in 2007.
