In which case any astute agent would negotiate an exit clause tied to Derby remaining in the Premiership...ala the players at Juventus in Serie A.

No?

my first that was "he mad oh what??!!!?"
but the fella still kinda young, and barring injury he can develop further and Europe will still be there for him.
He mashing up MLS now and enjoying himself, yuh hadda like getting up every morning and going to work, which he is right now.
good luck to him.
He's an idiot.


He finally having something of a breakout season in MLS after 7 years....he really satisfied with that pace of development in what is clearly a mediocre league?  I personally have a feeling that this fool has a fear of failure that rather than inspire him, it causes him to settle for mediocrity...which I see in his passivity on the field when in international competition.  He's content being big fish in a little pond...not exactly the sign of a winner.

Eddie Johnson in serious contract talks with Fulham

CARSON, Calif. (AP) - U.S. forward Eddie Johnson, who has been linked to a possible move to Fulham in England's Premier League, has left the national team's training camp.

Johnson left Sunday, team spokesman Michael Kammarman said Monday. Johnson had been practicing for this weekend's exhibition game against Sweden.
The Washington Post reported on its Web site that Johnson is in "serious negotiations" with Fulham, which is 2-11-9 and next-to-last in the 20-club Premier League, on track to be relegated for next season.

The 23-year-old Johnson has 11 goals in 31 international appearances. In July, he turned down a proposed transfer to Derby, which is last in the Premier League at 1-17-4.

My guess is that the experience and report from his fellow Americans (McBride, Dempsey, Bocanegra and Onyewu- last year) may have played a factor in his decision vis-a-vis Fulham.

Eddie Johnson signs with Fulham

Fulham complete Johnson signing
 
Fulham have completed the signing of USA striker Eddie Johnson after he was granted a work permit.

The 23-year-old has joined from Kansas City Wizards on a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Craven Cottage outfit.

"At 6ft 1in Eddie can complement the other forwards and gives us another dimension to our attacking play," said Fulham boss Roy Hodgson.

(continue)
"Donovan was excellent. We knew he was a good player, but he really didn't do anything wrong in the whole game and made it difficult for us."

Eddie johnson has the tools, but i get annoyed at how timid a player he is. He plays like he is afraid to make a mistake and chickens out of confrontations against defenders when his best options is to try to get a step on the player and take a shot. I watched him in his appearances in the Copa America and the Gold Cup and too often he had half a step on his marker and then stopped and tried to backtrack when he had room to go on a run and try a shot or bring in a cross...and i don't mean trying to take on the whole defense. I mean one man who he already get a beat on. You get the feeling that a coach who believes in him and gives him license to be a little selfish could take him to the next level. But he plays with no drive. He looks unambitious for a striker of his talent. Hopefully Hodgson could get him out of his shell

I seem to remember you making a similar comment a few months back and I cyah disagree. Ah really endorse the comments in bold.

I would only supplement your comment to say ... I believe the US coaching staff believe in him, but are/were aware of his "tendency" ... sometimes you let players work out these kinks through playing.

Specifically, EJ may benefit more from the advice/insight of a very experienced player with whom he shares the position even moreso than from from the confidence of a mgr.

My observation of some of those matches in which he was tentative is that I also noticed the team (as a unit) struggled to attain a rhythm ... he seemed unable to make defining plays breaking out of this pattern ... something that has been known to happen to many players when there is opportunistic rather than consistent, decisive movement of the ball forward.

The MLS losing quality players the league will be poorer for it. Good for Johnson, I think he will do well at Fulham

Now the Focus is back on SEALY, he was the second leading scoring behind Eddie last year. Hopefully he can lead the scoring this year and try and make the leap himself.
