'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Will Fulham be distracted by European tie?

Will Fulham be focused on their upcoming UEFA Europa League Semi Final next week and take their eye away from the game with Wolves tomorrow?

Legend Steve Bull certainly thinks so! Lets face it, it isn't often a player has the chance to play in a European semi final, so what Bully says makes sense.

'Fulham certainly won`t be the easiest place to get the win we need and it`s a shame we`ve come up against them after the one week they haven`t had a European fixture to contend with. But I still think they`ll still be cautious with that semi-final with Hamburg to follow on Thursday.' Steve Bull wrote in his Express & Star column.

He added: 'They are not going to get anything more from the league this year, so their focus will be on the Europa League. In circumstances such as these, players may be more inclined to pull out of any 50-50 tackles and we might even see Roy Hodgson rotate his side in preparation.

'If we can beat Tottenham home and way then we can certainly beat Fulham twice, so it won`t be for a lack of trying if we don`t because I know Mick will want to finish the job as early as possible.'

The argument against the view that Fulham's focus is on next week though has to be Roy Hodgson.

Probably the most respected manager in the Premier League.

There is very little chance that he will allow his players to get distracted.

He may well make the odd change, but I have no doubt that he will still want to win this game as that would be the best preparation going into the European tie.
