Awesome Whites midfielder TOM CAIRNEY says the new boys are ready to rock the Premier League!
EXCITING TIMES AHEAD!
CAIRNEY SAYS: “The owner Tony Khan is close to the players and the passion he has for this club is amazing. He’s so happy to have won promotion and he’ll invest again in the club. We’re an attractive team to play for – a lot of top players will want to come to Fulham, to play in London and to play in the Premier League. It’s exciting!”
PREM ROLE MODELS!
CAIRNEY SAYS: “We’ve got to look at what the likes of Bournemouth have done recently. They dominated possession like us when they were in the Championship and they scored more goals than anyone like us too! We’re going to need to adapt this season, but I’m excited to do that.”
CAIRNEY SAYS: “Ryan’s a great player and we play a special way. I’ve said for the last two years that we play Premier League football in the Championship, but that only means something now because we got promoted!”
SICK STYLE OF PLAY!
CAIRNEY SAYS: “Our style of play is attractive. We’re not like a 4-4-2 – we don’t keep the same shape every week. We look to play football and score goals and, I think for an attacking player, that’s the first thing you should look at.”
CAIRNEY SAYS: “We had to sign him, 100%! He’s not a Championship centre-forward, he’s a Premier League centre-forward and he played at the World Cup this summer too. He loves it here – he’s close to the manager and they’re from the same country – so I’m delighted he’s joined!”
THIS SEASON’S TARGET!
CAIRNEY SAYS: “I think for every team that gets promoted, the goal has to be to stay up. We’re not going to go to Arsenal and Chelsea and dominate the ball like we did in the past. We’re not naive, but we play some really good football and I really think this team will add something to the Premier League!”
CAIRNEY SAYS: “For the last 18 months I’ve been linked with a few different clubs and people asked me what I was doing staying at Fulham, but I signed a contract extension here for a reason. Going up via the play-offs was a fantastic feeling and I believe what the club and gaffer are doing here is special!”
