It was a much better atmosphere at the ground yesterday, like a dark cloud had been lifted. Anyone expecting anything different football wise should realise that our caretaker manager will need weeks on the training ground to resolve the clear mistakes and misdemeanors of Magaths regime. Hutchinsons tackle changed the game, I know magath used that excuse at reading but we were already being beaten an very much second best at reading when smith got his marching orders. Ruiz showed flashes, he needs game time now, somebody earlier said they were disappointed with the abuse he got? I didn't hear anything like that, he was treated like a hero returning home from where I was sat. It could be weeks before it gets better but I'm 100% sure it will. We have to use the loan market carefully now, a centre back, 2x cmids and another keeper have to be brought in so hopefully kit has a few pals in the prem lge who might do him a favor. P.s mr cossey-mowle I've never known anyone who could wind up so many with such little effort, your my guilty pleasure though, I love your posts and the reaction they provoke but I'm still not 100% your not having the last laugh sat typing with either your qpr or brentford scarf on!

Well done Parker, that was kept quiet, im impressed, even thought the guy is well paid £20,000 is a lot of dough just to give to FFC,(why dont FFC give it back we all know it was a joke). So now we are getting down to basics , Tigana has lobbed his hat into the ring, so a good bloke (back then)who dont speak english want to come back to the championship,does he know Kahn dont spend like big al? i cant see how we are to get moving with this squad, it just seems so weak we have to get some muscle and nous on board, will Kit play second fiddle to an outsider? Hoddle Symons and collins perm any one from 6-10 people, this could be an interesting few weeks, keep the faith coyw, please.next manager should be for three years at least and rebuild (some hope)

But there seems to be a problem in society as a whole that people whisper their discontent or wait until they leave organizations before slagging them off !Thats what Unions as for or were for to bring out in the open.Rumors and innuendos are not the way to act.Read the Observer to-day those reporters could be Fulham supporters or are being spoon fed players were Cheesed Off with previous Management.If all this was true the next interview panel must have a psychiatrist there just in case another Cuckoo has fallen out of its Nest into Fulhams radar? And I thought there was only One Fin Fulham and a few fruitcakes on our messageboard.

So Cossey its all lies again, Parker never paid the fines for the two kids , it never happened,its a lie.and Brede never had cheese strapped to his arse;no , another lie , of course it was, ad of course the doctor at Fulham never walked and ended up at Brighton another lie ? according to you it never appeared to happen , i agree were was the union ? did he create so much fear they thought there careers would be over? How did a man with 112 caps not ask !do i look silly wearing this cheese!? i cant answer any of it but dont say there are fruit cakes on this site because you have this odd way of assuming you are correct always.

What i dont understand is why Mac seems to have stood by and done nothing was he also scared of his job, thats what happens in to days world even at his level ,thats why no one says nothing till its safe to. PS was the 90 minute full scale game he did after loosing a game also a lie? banning the players he was dumping from talking to the first team squad,at Motspur pk, are they all lying?

Cossey mowle is a troll who should get the fuck of the internet. Sky/BT/Virgin should ban him for life. He's the only one in the country who can't see how shit felix magath was (easily the worst manager in the history of the english premier league/second tier). Even worse, this mowley prick is a staunch magath fan. Even worse than that, and the reason why he pisses me off so much, is how he talks shit of all others on the forum. Disgrace to Fulham fans. Disgrace to even QPR and Brentford fans, cos he's such a prick.

I never implied our squad made things up and am in no way defending anything indefensible but people should speak out in plain language and not in coded whispers then perhaps the alien training sessions and "Welsh Rabbit" cures would have succeeded in us appointing "Kit Carson" several weeks back.Regards the twats that make silly remarks on here obviously none of these are Fulham supporters but interlopers and montebanks.COYWs.

Although it was lovely to be back at the Cottage yesterday, unfortunately we came away with the same old result, by losing 1-0. The crowd was really bubbly walking through Bishops Park, before the game, but it was more almost utter silence when walking back. We seemed stunned, hardly believing that we had lost yet another game. Blackburn, were not a good side, but we seem to be fated to have no luck at all, when it comes to winning. Down to 10 men, and deservedly so, for that stupid tackle, was all too much in the end, although funnily enough I thought we played better with one short, that we did with a full side.Their goal had a big slice of luck about it. Burn was a bit of a disappointment, as he didn't seem able to jump, which gave him no height advantage, and we had high hopes of him. Incidentely Brede was seen at the ground yesterday(is he coming back on loan?) but Bryan put in a good stint, it was a shame that he was abused by some of the crowd at times. When Ruiz, Smith and MacCormack are together up front, we will look pretty lethal(Hopefully)I am sure that whoever becomes our new manager, either Sherwood or Lennon, I hear, will need to bring in a few loan players to tide us over until January. Most of the regulars around us, seem to think that relegation is almost certain again this season. I certainly don't think that way. For goodness sake we have only played 8 matches, so once we break this losing hoodoo, we will start to climb out of trouble. With Brum and Bolton next up, plus Norwich at home, which always brings 3 points, we will put this bad beginning behind us. Come what may, at least we have got rid of Magath, which is like pricking bad boil. Things can only get better after that.
Replies
Ah, a balanced match report at last. Thanks for the heads-up, most informative. I hope that Kit does get a fair crack of the whip, but I sense Khan has other plans. Our biggest hurdle is to learn how to win games - maybe a sports mumbo-jumbo man could install positive thinking?

If the World was perfect and the minimum wage was £10 per Hour this message board would still attract moaners like Moths around our Floodlights!A noble effort was produced by Kit to compensate for the previous lack luster performances.Another petulant sending off which cost us points,we have had so much bad luck so "Pack up your Troubles in your Old Kit Bag" and let him get on with it ! Onwards and Upwards.

You're the fucking moth. All you do is moan about people in general on this board. QPR/Brentford trolls are better than you. You're the worst thing on this forum. No one likes you. Piss off.

I think it's been mentioned but karagounis wants to come back to help Fulham. His experience and know how could help in a desperate situation. He did well in the World Cup. So to me it's a no brainier. Get him in.

agreed!! he actually uses the ball and keeps possession he may be 38, but could sure do a job for us right now.

Like many of you I'm a season ticket holder who cares deeply for our special club. Unlike many of you I'm far from an expert on the tactics of football; all I ask is that the team is attractive to watch and relatively successful. Many of you speak about our billionaire owner who's accountants have told him to carry some sportsteams so he can create a write off against tax, his ownership and Fulham's form is a coincidence (his US are simply as bad as they were when bought them). Macintosh is to blame for the dreadful managerial decisions; Khan is to blame for removing the Jackson statue. I didn't like MJ, I've never owned a record, "danced" to one of his puerile songs, or mourned his death; BUT given the position we're in, and when desperate nothing should be discounted, it's time to bring that awful statue back to it's rightful position hidden behind the stand so our good luck returns yet women,children and lovers of music or football aren't offended.

I do find it strange to come on here and find people slating the team and Kit Symons already? With the chance of sounding like Robert cosy wosy ( sorry can't remember his actual name. ) the team has been ripped apart and chopped and changed and basically had the life drained out of it under Magath, and Kit has had what, 24/48hrs with the players and thst was his first game in charge. Anyone that expected a straight win yesterday with Brazilian style football doesn't live in the real world! My son and I have been to all the games this season apart from brentford and Forrest and anyone who doesn't think we played better football and looked more of a team wasn't watching the same game I was . Don't get me wrong it wasn't what we all want by any means and there are still issues and plenty to work on, but there was a side I saw there capable of winning some games at last. Now to sound like felix and his PR team. Better side with AND without 11 men yesterday . They really scored their only chance and without the sending off ( which it was, awful, needless tackle ) I really think a draw would've been the least we got. Which would've been more than acceptable for Kits first game in charge . Don't get me wrong I'm normally one of the first to kick off when it's not going right but let's get behind the boys now and give them and Kit a chance . And as for atmosphere, we sat in the hammy end as normal and the guys were great, plenty of noise and never stopped singing, even after the goal. Remember it's a long way back from where Magath had dragged us down too! COYW
Replies
Well said Ben. Very true. I was at the game yesterday and I thought how well we did with ten men, especially in the closing stages. Most of the time one was unaware that ten were playing eleven. And their goal had an element of luck about it. I felt we deserved a point. COYW!

We would have got a point if Rodegella had put the ball in the middle instead of shooting from impossible angles.

I...just...want...Shahid...Khan...OUT!!! Admittedly, I don't follow Fulham as closely as real fans do, but as a casual fan from the US I don't want to see Fulham brought down by an owner that can't succeed in the first sport he tried to own (the Jacksonville Jaguars), let alone a team that I love. And it pisses me off when I visit the team website to catch up on news and scores and have to see that ridiculous bio of Khan which says "the new owner knows what it takes to succeed in sport as he purchased the Jaguars". No he doesn't. He knows how to buy a club, not make it succeed. If there was relegation in the NFL Jacksonville would have been in League One years ago. And that is where Fulham is heading under Khan.

Hope that he is not advising Khan on Race Relations. Not sure if his appointment would be appropriate for a family club like Fulham, but there you go, I suppose. Desperate times require desperate actions

Given that Magath thought it appropriate to get rid of all good and decent players, our only hope at the moment (until 1 Jan) appears to be emergency loans. Does anyone know the rules for this? How many can you get? Do you need to always have a recall clause? Do you need a specific reason to sign an emergency loan player? Etc

Let's be honest the best thing is that we have got rid of the idiot Magath arguably the worst appointment in Fulham's history. The club needs to remove Mckintosh and Khan but that will not happen. So we got beat today no real surprise regardless of management as this is a young, inexperienced lacking quality squad. What makes me shudder is that people automatically jump for Danny Murphy who has no management experience, no tactical knowledge and really should not even be considered. Another wrong appointment and this club is finished forever although I still feel we will get relegated.I therefore put this on the table for consideration, Neil Lennon who I don't personally like but may improve if Kit doesn't get any time.Tony Pullis will not play quality football long term and please Hoddle is another goal digger like so many. Khan is directly responsible for our mess keeping JOL too long, Mullenstein bad timing and Magath should never have appointed, then sacked last season before catastrophic damage which was so obvious. Keep praying.
Replies
He's only been in charge a couple of days and no one expected miracles but I did expect something different but other than Ruiz coming back in the fold it was exactly what Magath did. Same team, same tactics, same clueless tackling, and my nan can shot straighter. Same substitutions, same atmosphere on the terraces because of what was being produced and worse still same result. Where was David and Eisfeld and hyndman who I thought would get a chance and where was the extra fight because I am at a loss to see all the new plans.

You have a man sent off, you're playing 45 mins with 10, no manager is going to shine in that situation. Some of the comments on this board are insane. Give Kit 5-10 matches to pick a team and get it sorted out.
posted by Drago (Guest) - Saturday 20th September 2014, 10:48 PM
 
What he didn't pick the team today? Did you see the first 45 minutes, we were still clueless. No it ain't gonna change overnight but we all went with hope of something different and got nothing new. The thing I don't like is the after match speech praises lots of people and tells us how upset Hutchinson is. Same speech I've heard before. I've heard let's give him five or ten matches withheld Jol Mulensteen and Magath and where are we.
posted by Steve (Guest) - Saturday 20th September 2014, 11:27 PM
 
I posted this on Friday before the Blackburn game. "Knowing the club inside out doesn't guarantee we will win games. That needs experience and tactical awareness, with a slice of luck thrown in when the team is struggling. While I'm going to support KS I'm not going to raise my expectations too highly, and nor should other posters who want immediate results. If he manages two wins and two draws out of the next five matches, he will be doing well as would any new manager coming in at this stage". Methinks you guys want a manager with a magic wand. On the bright side we have 38 games to go - a maximum of 114 points to play for, so talk of relegation at this point in the season is ridiculous.

I'm going to apply for the job. No joke. I've got all the solutions to ffc's problems. Rate this post if you reckon I'll do a good job.
Replies
If you get the job can you tell Smith and Hutchinson to pay the fans back their entrance fees for ruining any chance in two games. We can't win when we have eleven so what chance with ten.

Good luck Andy. As manager can you also reduce ticket prices. Paying £25+ to watch garbage is a con. I wouldn't pay any more than £10.00 to watch this current Fulham side.

To watch what we are getting now they should pay us £10
posted by steve (Guest) - Saturday 20th September 2014, 11:49 PM
 
£12.99 tickets all around. If we loose you get a £5 reimbursement. So you'll all be paying £12.99. There are many changes I am planning to make. With the players, the first thing I'll instate would be a birthday rule. Every player on their birthday will get cake, with correct number of candles, party hats and party blowers. Even better the players can choose which type of cake they want, and have the liberty of cutting out slices themselves. Wanna keep it all to themselves - that's fine by me. This will increase the squads morale and will therefore guarantee promotion.
posted by andy (Guest) - Sunday 21st September 2014, 9:33 AM
 
@ Andy, £12.99 seems quite steep for watching 'garbage' as Walter puts it. I don't want to pay £10.00 to watch this current Fulham side. My brother (also a ffc fan) says it's a rip off. Any chance of free tickets?
posted by Derek (Guest) - Sunday 21st September 2014, 12:17 PM
 
Okay then Derek, for you and your brother, free tickets. I'm sure you're decent supporters, both of you. Robert Cossey Mowle though...you will be banned from supporting this club. You'll be banned entry to craven cottage, fulham, london and the United Kingdom. Also, you'll be banned from using the internet, since you'll never know how.

The euphoria on this message board has already been replaced with abject misery and doom and gloom, which is, frankly, really stupid. I wrote yesterday that the best we could hope from Kit is that he can steady the ship and hang on until the transfer window reopens, in the hope that we could gain enough points not to be dead and buried by then. Kit has been in charge for 1 day! He has inherited the worst squad we have had in years, if not decades..Magath, under the noses of Mackintosh , and paymaster, Khan, have, literally, thrown all the babies out with the bath water. What did you expect today? Please, please, I urge you, don't turn on Kit as I really can't see any half decent manager with relevant experience joining us until Xmas, and, by then, it may be too late

@ te, what makes you think managers are going to be available during xmas? Why wait for the transfer window to get a new manager in, it doesn't make any sense??? A new manager in now with experience can assess the squad and make necessary changes during the transfer window. The biggest mistake FFC made was replacing Jol with Rene. A proven manager could have saved us from relegation.

...and don't expect any miracle from whoever comes in. Even if Clough or Busby were resurrected and somehow landed in Craven Cottage....even they couldn't repair the enormous damage wreaked in the few months that Magath was Manager. Heed the words of Tony Gale about the setting back of Fulham by years.....it is going to take much longer than you think to repair it, and I'm not sure we have time this year to save ourselves from relegation. I'm not suggesting that you support Mackintosh or Khan, but , for God's sake, support the manager, now that it's not that evil bastard
posted by Te (Guest) - Saturday 20th September 2014, 7:19 PM
 
Just for the record, Im not suggesting that we should wait until Xmas before making a permanent appointment....it's simply that I can't see any half decent manager wanting to come in right now, with so long to go until the transfer window reopens. All that would happen is that the incumbent would be doomed to failure due to the lack of half decent choices he has at his current disposal. Unles I'm wrong, im not sure that there are any good loanees hanging around waiting to come to us!

A well drafted post. However, don't just blame Magath, or have you forgotten the magic of Jol and Co. Jol was the beginning of the current problems suffered by my club, taking a Europa finalist team and converting it into . . . well, you call it what you will. The club will take a lot of rebuilding after the damage, but it will survive. One things for sure, FFC is still and always will be, the only team I will ever support.

I'm not sure who you are Te but your opinions range across the whole spectrum loosely called bollocks. MR Khan has put out a very succinct and intelligent statement about finding a new manager. Kit will fill in and start to turn things around - let's face it, after the last 12 months it won't be too difficult to achieve some improvement. With Magath sacked on Weds night and the game against Blackburn today - with half the match with 10 men (again) I'm not sure what sort of miracle you were expecting. Kit's after match comments were a reflection of the real situation. For goodness sake stop running round like a headless chicken and have a bit of patience now that the changes are being made.

Never thought Id live to see the day . Goalkeeper targeting Rodeleiga every time. So predictable. We were crap even before the sending off. Man of the match Ruiz and thats says something.
Replies
Fulham need time to turn this around, we have had the heart ripped out of the team. Fulham will come good again, let's get behind the team as Brede said " it's going to get worse before it gets better" we have hit worse big time, but I have a feeling Fulham will get better, hopefully sometime this season.
posted by Duggan (Guest) - Saturday 20th September 2014, 6:52 PM
 
The sad part is Kit says he was happy with the performance. We need a manager who won't feel sorry for a player sent off, who cost us any chance, and who is unhappy with losing because most of us are pissed off with losing.
