Back in January, when Fulham initially tried to sign goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, the move fell apart while Stekelenburg was on a plane from Rome to London.
Undeterred, the Flying Dutchman joined Fulham on a four-year contract in June, long before anyone could change their mind.
"I am very happy to be joining Fulham, and to have everything sorted out so early in the summer," Stekelenburg told FulhamFC.com, "so I can really focus on preparations for playing in the Barclays Premier League next season."
What's not to like, Fulham fans? Sure, he makes the odd mistake here and there, but he tried to join the team twice, and not even an errant flight across the continent could keep him away.
