Famous Fulham Players: No 8 Danny Murphy

Last updated : 10 February 2010 By Kevin Markey

Danny Murphy 2007-present

Too soon in his Fulham career for inclusion? I thought so at first, but the more I rolled his contributions around in my mind the more he had to be on the list. Has demonstrated just about everything as a midfield player in the last couple of seasons, devastating through-balls, timely tackles, ice-cool penalties and stupefying headers against Portsmouth. In terms of sheer ability, how many better midfield players have we had? Don't be surprised if he's our next manager.
