Dear Santa,

I know you’ll be really busy dealing with all the last-minute Christmas requests right now, but I wanted to write to you because you got my friend Nick exactly what he wanted last year.

I’ve recently had a birthday so there’s just a few things I want this Christmas.

1) Could you see if you could get Brede and Jimmy to stay until the summer? They’ve become so important to us this year and we’re just beginning to make some real progress. You don’t necessarily have to deliver on this until the end of January so you’ve got a bit of time to work your magic.

2) This might be a bit greedy, but might I have a couple of presents on Dec. 26th and Dec 28th? We haven’t won at the Lane for ages (not since Barry Hayles had his finest hour) and had little reason for festive cheer last year. Just a point would be a marked improvement. And who wouldn’t want a repeat of 19 March 2006? Three points against the filfth would be brilliant. I see you’ve already given us a helping hand.

3) Can you make sure all the Fulham faithful have a happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year?

Thanks so much,
