Fulham boss Chris Coleman is delighted to see summer signing Jimmy Bullard already proving to be a big hit with the Cottagers fans. The 27-year-old midfielder joined Fulham for £2.5million from Wigan Athletic at the end of last season and marked his home debut with a last-gasp penalty equaliser against Bolton in midweek. Coleman said of his new recruit: "Jimmy is just a good player. "He has loads of energy and can make a last pass. He's such an infectious player who is into everything. "He has great quality on the ball, never stops making angles and is up and down the pitch. I said our fans would love him before they saw him in a Fulham jersey. "Bolton was his home debut and they've taken to him immediately and I'm glad about that. "He showed a lot of bottle for the penalty as well, we were 1-0 down with the match almost over."
