Simon Davies: Fulham midfielder challenged to earn new deal

The 33-year-old has been dogged by injury problems for the last 18 months, restricting him to just seven appearances in that time.

But Davies - out of contract in the summer - is back in the frame for Saturday's trip to Sunderland, and Jol wants him to grab the opportunity.

"The situation with Simon is that we would like players to be productive, and he's been injured half of the time, maybe more," said the Fulham boss.

"Hopefully he can stay fit and I've got an idea that he can still prove himself again.

"I have to make a decision (on whether he features). I have a lot of players now but it may be about having him in the squad.

"That's what he did in the past because he's a big player for Fulham."

Another man in the frame for the weekend is the on-loan Emmanuel Frimpong, and Jol added: "It would be quite expensive to take him permanently, but if there was an opportunity to take him on loan again, I would probably do that.

"He is an Arsenal player. He is one of the few players who has been at Arsenal since a young age.

"I think Sunderland away would suit him. His fitness is getting better and better.

"He did well when he played for us against Norwich. He is fully fit now so I can play him from the start if I want to."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
