Almost every summer, Fulham are linked with the Egyptian forward Mido. The transfer window comes round again and the rumour resurfaces almost like clockwork. We’ve even got a January edition this year with the Daily Mail the latest to claim that Fulham are in a battle with Hull and Ajax to sign theĀ  Middlesbrough striker.

Mido, once outstanding for Spurs in a Cup tie against us a few years ago, is being quite coy about the situation:

Hull have been talking to me for a month now and another English club, who I cannot name at the moment, are also interested.

I always thought he was older than 26. Anyway, the only thing that even tempts me to suggest there might be something in this is that Roy used to coach El Zamalek’s manager ten years or so ago. Watch this space.
