Turner, Richards, Lee, Guthrie- new signings. So much for the vaunted Fulham Youth. Our young players, too young or just over hyped?
Turner and Guthrie could be some experience which Is needed not sure about lee

I don't know whether to laugh or cry with some of our fans who subscribe to this board. We fail to sign players on loan, and they moan, and then when we do sign players, they moan again. According to them, our management never get things right whatever they do. It looks like we will at least avoid the drop this season, which unfortunately at this point in time, is our main objective. A top ten place is a remote possibility, but unlikely. Going on what we have seen in these recent signings, it does look like we are going to strengthen a lot in the summer, for an assault on promotion next season, so hopefully we still have a lot to look forward to in 2015/16.

Different people have different opinions that's what it's all about. If we all agreed all the time it would be boring.

My only concern is why it's taken Kit all this time to decide we need people in on loan. In January he said we didn't need anyone. A few injuries but why the panic with 8 games to go.

Brian I have posted on this site several times and never once swore but you are talking bollocks! The club is a disgrace. Signing loan players that are nothing more then rejects! It is proving that Symons really doesn't have clue and neither does anyone at the club. Those who know football realised that during the transfer we needed to desperately sign players as soon as the window opened. Now it's panic crap loan players! Do the club really believe these are the players to help push forward next season in the so called big clear out? This used to be such a professional and admired club for it organisation and structure from top to bottom. Now it's run by amateurs that are simply taking the piss out of every Fulham fan. I love this club this is why I feel the need to write on this site. We are broken and if people keep saying back the club, you're not a fan etc etc then I suggest you all go and get some mental help because your'e as sick as the people that supposedly run our club!

I don't think anyone would mind if we DID sign, or DIDN'T sign players as long as it looked as though we are making progress. We haven't been, ib fact we have gone backwards at a rate of knots! It's a bit early to be calling these signings failures so let's wait and see what happens eh? If we start winning games and we survive then the moaning, one way or the other will stop.

Kit said we didn't need players in so I wonder if this is Curbs doing. I also think Symons is having problems now he has told a number of players they will be gone at the end of the season. Every time we bring in a loan they seem to go straight into the starting line up.

I think it's obviously Curbishley telling Kit we need to be more physical and getting in the best he can at this late hour. Kit is out of his depth. We all knew sending Smith out was madness and not getting him back in January insane. The loan players we get now are all rejects but they will improve the squad - we need muscle. In answer to the question you can't win promotion with kids. Woodrow is a year or two away from being good at thus level by way of example. The German was insane to get rid of Sidwell, Dejagah, Hagaland, Stockwell etc but MacIntosj and Khan allowed that. We need to clear out the deadwood owner and management first - shame we are stuck with them.

In my eyes the problems start & end with Macintosh, we should be protesting out side this Tony Blair look a likes front door. Yes kits the one running the team but if you are not in charge of certain aspects whats the point. It took Macintosh till 2011 to get his feet under the table to start working his magic. Man city didn't want him looking after there billions, Hints open your eyes we are going back to the future

It amazes me how people try to turn the blame away from a totally incompetent manager. Yes he may be limited with total control but Symons has made error after error followed by mistake and then tries to make excuses. Symons trains them, selects the team, chooses the tactics picks the bench makes the substitutions sends people out on loan, tells us we don't need anyone then brings players in with 8 games to go. Before that he tells a number of players their careers are no longer at Fulham. We can't even get rid of players properly. We still own the greek and Ruiz. Dont forget Tunnicliffe and Kaca were out on loan. Smith would still be gone if his loan could have been extended. Symons brought the youths through the club and it doesn't matter what we think of them not one of them is any further forward. Are the guys we have brought in any better than guys we had who never got a chance like Burn, Eisfeld or David. I'm not complaining about the effort to improve us now but it wouldnt have happened if Curbs hadnt been brought in. Kits failures have gone on and on and He is mainly to blame for our total flop this season although he hasn't been assisted by people who should know better.

Turner is definiately better than Dan Burn

Steve: I don't think its a question of deflecting blame from Kit., who is clearly not up to the task of managing a Championship club. The issue is more that the club is incompetently managed all the way from the top down, and there is little point criticising the foot soldiers when the Generals are hopeless

It's an emergency for us because the players we have are crap

Seriously MST!? This lad was one of our best players going down, our defence is shocking and yet you label him 'shit'?
The lad is quality, but Symons isn't playing him. A new manager will see how much better he is than any other of our CBs and play him.
I'm sorry, but you're wrong.

Curbs has got goalkeeper cover in - so we don't have the idiot in the track suit again. Kit should have sorted this in Jan - fact is he is a coach not a manager. Has only ever worked with what he has been given and so doesn't know how to build a side.

Your welcome to Guthrie he couldn't even get into our reserves. If the bloke gave a bit of effort he would be a half decent player!
