Fulham Football Club have been busy on Christmas Eve keeping their employees busy with two major announcements. First the return of Clint Dempsey on a two-month loan from the Seattle Sounders was made official. There was much rejoicing. Then a few hours later, the club announced Alan Curbishley has been named the club's first technical director.
There was not much rejoicing.
Fans immediately began having a field day on Twitter reacting to the news and clowning on the club for the decision and the timing. Because this stuff is funny, we've gone through and found some of the best reactions to the Curbishley news.
