One of the last minute deals to go through on January 31st was Cyrus Christie's move from Middlesbrough to Fulham on a three-and-a-half-year contract. The 25-year-old has has started for the London club tonight against Bristol City and has already made a positive impact.
The right back received the ball on the wing and after dribbling to the edge of the box executed a filthy outside of the foot pass which split the Bristol defence leaving team mate Aleksander Mitrovic with a simple tap-in:
Gorgeous from the Ireland international, the two January purchases combining to give Slaviša Jokanović's side the lead, though Bristol have pulled it back to one apiece. Fulham currently sit in fifth place in the Championship, two points below Bristol City and it would be great to see Christie tested at the highest level, should Fulham achieve promotion.
Fulham fans were loving their new signings' skills:
Fuck me Christie what a ball https://t.co/ie30EAEfaM

Ireland's own Cyrus Christie. between him and Seamus Coleman we have great Right backs, now we just need a few forwards.

With Cyrus Christie assising Mitrovic I need to point out how Derby sold Christie to a rival because he prefers the ancient Chris Baird at right back
