Saturday’s reappearance of the popular Jimmy Bullard for Fulham after sixteen months out injured had Chris Kamara fighting a familiar battle with coherence:

“Four corners of the ground, and the sides of the ground, and well… the back of the ground, everybody basically, had a round of applause when Jimmy Bullard came on.”

Well, clearly not entirely everyone. When another long-term injury victim Julien Faubert was next to reappear, Kammy obviously found some extra cheerleaders in the rafters:

“If you think Jimmy Bullard got a reception, Faubert got a magnificent reception.”
