The midfielder played 28 games for Blackpool last season, scoring 2 goals and setting up 6 more - but is he an ample replacement for Bryan Ruiz?
Fulham completed the signing of former Tottenham and Wolves midfielder Jamie O'Hara after his release from Blackpool on Tuesday, and it was a move that divided Cottagers fans and got Twitter talking about the 28-year-old's career.
Deemed a hugely promising player when he came through at Spurs in 2008, O'Hara failed to nail down a first team place at White Hart Lane, and went on to move to Wolves after a decent loan spell at Portsmouth.
Fast forward a few years, skipping O'Hara's disastrous time at Molineux that saw the club relegated to League One and the player struggling to get game time, the former England Under-21 midfielder ended up at Blackpool last season where he was one of the few bright spots in the Tangerines desperately poor relegation campaign.
Coming as it did on the day Fulham sold Bryan Ruiz to Sporting Lisbon, some supporters argued on Twitter that O'Hara coming in on a one-year deal was a hugely uneven deal. But others, both supporters of Fulham and fans of other clubs, still think he has something to offer, as you'll see below.
@Antgrad Yep, I still believe Jamie O'Hara is a good player! He was about Blackpool's only good player last season, haha.— Phil Schofield (@PhilBLAHBLAH) July 7, 2015
Fulham have literally swapped Bryan Ruiz for Jamie O'Hara, are they bonkers— Ledesma init (@EmiOnTheWing) July 7, 2015
Today Fulham signed Jamie O'Hara and lost Bryan Ruiz, why is this fair?— Andy Bailey (@Andrew_Bailey25) July 7, 2015
So we've lost Ruiz but it doesn't matter, because we've signed Jamie O'Hara instead. Magnificent business #ffc— Matt Merchant (@Matt_Merchant_) July 7, 2015
Good luck to Jamie O Hara at Fulham, a good honest pro who I always liked.— Nikki (@NikkiH_27) July 7, 2015
Jamie O'Hara is another decent signing in my book. Happy with our business so far, now for a centre back and a bit of pace wide. #FulhamFC— Jonny Cope (@jonnycope) July 7, 2015
Imagine being a Fulham fan & genuinely being happy your club has signed Jamie O'Hara— Harry (@HarryCH97) July 7, 2015
Jamie O'Hara could be bargain of the season. Really hope he can get back to his best. @Mrjamieohara1— Barrs (@TommyBarrs) July 7, 2015
I used to really rate Jamie O'Hara, he could've had a much better career if it wasn't for his attitude.— Jake (@Jake_BWFC) July 7, 2015
Jamie O'Hara is just the type of Championship quality we need. More signings like this please! Coyw!— Cameron Ramsey (@94CAMRAM) July 7, 2015
