6 fixtures next month, of which 4 at home. If we get 8 or more points in October we'll have a chance stop the rot and climb up the table.I'll give Kit the benefit of the doubt as long as we are on track to achieve this. If not, new talent will be needed from the CEO down to stay in this league.

Just cant understand the folks on this board who think Ruiz has class!He is not suited to the English game ,he cant tackle he is slow gets shot of the ball as soon as he gets it in case some nasty big bloke will hurt him.twice per season he will score a classy goal,we can only field eleven players, when he is on we only have at best ten and a half. I will take that all back when he has had a good game,cant see one as he has never had one yet in a Fulham shirt.

"On 21 October 2013, it was announced that Mowbray had left the club (Boro) with immediate effect after a run of 2 wins in 12 games in the 2013-14 campaign". With this track record he could make Magath seem like a genius.

He also took over West Brom in the bottom three, and took them to the playoffs. Then in the closed season got rid of most of the aging squad he had inheritted from Robson and took them to the title.

I was talking to a friend of mine, who is a Palace season ticket holder, and he told me that he was going to place a bet on Fulham for promotion. I told him that he must be crackers to do that, but then he pointed out to me, that when Palace were promoted to the Premier League a couple of season's ago, they only had 1 point after 7 matches, and then went on a good run, once they broke their losing duck. He said that on paper at least, we have a far better team than Palace had at the time, and that he fully expected us to do the same. I don't think that there are any better squads in the Championship than ours, now that we have got that monkey off of our backs(Felix of course)so can we do a Palace. I think that we can. COYW

Te, name me a better squad than fulhams in the championship? All that was missing was a half good manager. Is there really better players than Parker, Ruiz, McCormack and Rodalegga? Soon as we start defending better we will fly up the league

Last years premier league teams are better in every position. 25 men. And a few of them are mid table. To say we've the best squad in the championship is beyond anything on this planet. Put magath in charge of Chelsea. They won't have 1 point from 7 games.

Parker: Way way past it. Mediocre/shit Mccormak: According to leeds fans he's average and just had an uncharacteristic last season Ruiz: Good...but dodgy. Could be fulhams 'championship XI' 1 of 2 contributions. Hugo: Proper shit. Dan Burn: Great only against clueless Ashley young/Valencia. Other than that, okay. Decent championship standard Hoogland: Looks good but time will tell. The other potential championship XI contribution.

Apart from Adam, the rest of you seem a miserable lot, with no faith in our team at all. Unless you have been on another planet, you will all know that our bad start was purely and simply down to Magath, and for Khan and our CEO, not getting shot of him sooner. If we had Kit in charge from the beginning of the season, we would be sitting nearer where Norwich are now. We will all see how much better than them we are when we play them at home, in a couple of weeks. Mark my words, we will be a far better team than them, and finish higher in the table at the end of the season, and that is a promise. How many horses come from last to the first three in a race. It can be done. Have a little more confidence.

Wow that's a pretty harsh assessment! Parker is past his best but still the best Cmid in the division. Ruiz is the best player in the division, his attitude I question though, did you not see mccormacks performance v forest? Instead of asking Leeds fans who are bound to say it was a fluke make your own mind up. Luckily for dan burn their aren't costas, falcao or dzeko to face week n week out. As for Cardiff and Norwich having better squads, complete nonsense, both teams lost their best players in the summer, Try and be positive you might enjoy a victory one in a while, how many of these other top squads have depth of young talent breaking through we do, all we needed to do was remove the idiot, now he has gone I could anage this team to a top half finish!

I thought ruiz was going to leave, for sure. But he stayed and was/is an asset. He's technically better than most, but the best player in the championship, no. Chris David and Hoogland are good players. Hugo will score a few as well if he plays. Mcormak here and there. There's not much to boast about in terms of players. Adam, enjoying a victory as a team rooted to the bottom of the league is one thing. Coming out, claiming we've then the best team in the league is another!! Our team has a shit defence. And that alone makes it no where near the best team in the league.

Our squad at full stretch is good enough to stay up in the championship. Lower championship/high league 1 standard. That's what we are.

As i used to be a KEEPER . I would come to the edge of my 18yrd line to collect a throw in.When we had a throw in .I called out for our keeper to do the same on sat and the bloke behind me said you carnt do that any more.I have asked around at work to day about it and had many different answers.Is there a ref in the house.
Replies
As I understand it keepers cant pick up the ball from a throw in as it would count as a back pass. Do you remember that Villa goalkeeper conceding from a throw in after the ball rolled over his foot? The reason he tried to control it rather than pick it up is it would have counted as a back pass.

No you can't pick it up.

The rule changed on throw-ins about 10 years ago, but well after the original back-pass rule was introduced.

I note that many people on this site want to give Kit Symmons a chance. So far he has done alright and perhaps he could go on and become a good manager, my only concern is that if the club manage to stay up will he be able to attract good players to the club. I would like to see a manager in place that if we survive this year or by some miracle get promoted he would be able to take us on and upwards. It is a tough decision to make, although I am not in favour of a director of football this might be a case for one. We as a club have to get of off the managerial roundabout we have got ourselves in over the last 18 months.
Replies
Sorry to shift discussion away from your point but can anyone explain why Kit waited till half time "to read the riot act"..... Why not read the act slowly and clearly to the players in the days leading up to the match and save us all a great deal of stress? Perhaps this tactic could be tried out against Bolton!

You can think hard about the next game, sure, and pick a team you think should do OK. But you don't know how things are really going to go till they get out there. Famous managers are known for their halftime rhetoric.

Its fine that you think about our future, but lets be realistic, the only thing that matters is our next match and that KIT is doing ok for the moment. Long term planning is useless at FFC.
posted by T.NO (Guest) - Sunday 28th September 2014, 9:00 PM
 
It's clear to me (if no-one else) that we have two priorities: short term (urgent and important) and long term (important). Our short term objective is to claw ourselves out of the bottom three and maintain ourselves mid-table. Timing - up to the Jan window. Bringing in a new manager at this stage would inevitably bring disruption, and possibly hinder our current progress under Kit (a team that enjoys playing football will bring in the bacon more often than not). In the longer term, I think it is right and proper to consider who would be the best choice to take us up another level and maintain us in the EPL (as if). There are pros and cons with chopping and changing, as we are all aware. At the same time we don't want to delay too long if Kit is struggling to get results - which IS the bottom line, however a 'nice' man he undoubtedly is). So my suggestion is to run with it during October, and see how Kit does, before auguring for change.
posted by stephen terry (Guest) - Monday 29th September 2014, 4:09 AM
 
Looking at our five October league fixtures, our improvement, or not, will be evident if we get something out of the games against Middlesbrough and Rotherham away, win our two home matches against Bolton and Charlton (whose away form is dismal) which leaves Norwich at home to consider. Their away form has been excellent and I don't really see us winning (even with our favourable historical record against them). I'd say 9 points would guarantee Kit is given an extended run, but anything less than 5/6 points would signal change needs to be made (IMO). Interestingly, Kit has amassed better results (W2,L1) in three games than Magath did with eight (W1,D1,L6). Even if Kit loses the next five, he'll still have a better record - but he'll be on his bike back to the U21's if that happens.

Okay guys let rip on me as I expect but please somebody tell me why such doom and gloom, the shit clloud has been lifted, magath left a rotten stench behind him and rotten stenches take a while to be got rod off completly, now he has gone we will get better every week. Can somebody please tell me why we will still be flirting with relegation at the end of the season, no other squad in this division can boast the likes of Parker, Ruiz, Burn, Hoogland, Rodalegga, Mccormack etc.. No other squad has the youth prospects we have, Roberts, Woodrow, Dembele, Christensen. Hyndman etc.. The only reason we have been struggling was because of the idiot who was in charge, oover the next month we will see this team floursih and gain much need self belief and we will fly up the table.

Sorry Stephen, it wasnt aimed at you, i should have started a new thread, its seems that whatever happens some people only want to see the negative, all i heard Saturday night was how poor Birmingham were, how Symons isnt the right man, why we played so bad 1st half etc etc etc...

Yeah Birmingham were poor, but no poorer than Blackburn, Ipswich, Millwall or Wolves and we didnt manage to beat any of them, cant people see just what a state Magath left this club in?? Symons is rebuilding, every time we win it is a massive boost for the group of players, i firmly believe if left alone he will guide us into the top 10 and flirt with getting near the play offs, we probably wont make it but let the guy get on with it, we played really poor 1st half and once we scored you could see the confidence flow, it will flow and flow and flow every time something positive happens and this group of players are way to talented not to make something of it!

stephen terry- I couldn't get to the Birmingham game but managed to find a link on wiziwig which worked well. I think bet365, or someone like that, do live streaming if you have a positive balance, i.e deposit some money but I don't know if that works outside the UK and I haven't used it.

The way I see it is that we have just one two games by playing crap. Albeit Brum and Donnie but If Kit is able to galvanise the team into thinking we can win playing poorly imagine what we might be able to do if this team ever starts playing well together. For me Kit is not a long term solution but he definitely is what is needed to steady the ship and if any one with any nouse at the club would think about it bringing Pulis in with Kit as his assistant would make perfect sense. Gather a win one, lose one, draw one points collection until January and then buy big. It is likely Ruiz and Rodellega will want to leave then in any case so at the very least we will need to replace them and a blind man can see we need width and grit in the team.

Oh, god, not Pullis again. He wouldn't put his name in the frame because he knows he couldn't do any better than Kit. Just give the man a chance to prove himself.

Perversely, a couple of wins may make it even more likely that Kit isn't given the job, as a few points on the board will mean that we are a more attractive proposition to potential managers who may otherwise have steered clear of a sinking ship
posted by Te (Guest) - Sunday 28th September 2014, 7:20 PM
 
But for our keeper we would have been 3 nil down at half time but for their keeper we would have won 4 1 if we are to persist with the long ball i believe we should try and get Bobby Zamora back on loan he was great at receiving the high ball controlling it and laying it off I think Hugo and Ruiz would benefit greatly from his play were is Chris David and young Roberts i think those two and the three i have mentioned would set the championship alight and ease the plight of our defenders if we could get Sidwell back with Parker playing behind that strike force i believe our problems in the championship would be over I believe in Kit because he is fulham through and through and that is what we need more of from top to bottom supporters and staff and most of all the players must unite and realize what a great club fulham is lets see a bit of badge slapping from the players and pride in their club and play to their true potential it is their careers and our club that is at stake let us all believe again. billybee ps I think i will get slagged off for even mentioning Bobby Zamora but I forgive and forget and believe it just might work sometimes you have to go backwards in order to move forward

It's interesting to read responses to Saturday's win. A lot of people have said it was a poor performance against a sub standard opposition but few have pointed out that regardless of that it was a win, and a rare away win as well something that has been rare as hens teeth over the past few seasons and I think we should be happy with that at least.
posted by Hints (Guest) - Sunday 28th September 2014, 8:00 PM
 
He surely has more chance of keeping the job if he posts a couple of wins, rather than a couple of losses.
posted by peterjeremy - Sunday 28th September 2014, 8:09 PM
 
The win is far more important than the poor performance. Teflon mac and his mate magath have dragged the club so far down the sewers (not just down the loo like riise says) that performances could only be poor. Will kit be the saviour and radically improve the team?? I highly doubt it. There are too many magath remnants in him and his tactics.
posted by ffc fan (Guest) - Sunday 28th September 2014, 10:41 PM
 
Just by putting back in Ruiz, taking out that retired (yet still playing!) goalee, and not taking the complete piss every moment of his breathing life, kit has shown himself to be superior to Magath. So, yea, definite positive for me.
posted by ffc fan (Guest) - Sunday 28th September 2014, 10:43 PM
 
I thought the most positive thing was there was only 1 change to the starting line up. IF kit gets a bit of consistency going we'll do well.

Its going to take time to heal at Fulham because the strategy that Magath employed was not working. We lost a lot of players, Mitroglou didn't work (literally), and the young players were simply ... too young. But maybe it won't take too much time. Now Ruiz and Rodallega have been reinstated this should bring back a good amount of experience and ability. I hope each of them feels they have something to prove. All Symons needs to do is be affable and bring the squad together, which I'm sure he above all can do. We don't need anymore Gauleiters marching up and down and pissing people off.
Replies
Whilst it would be the easier option to retain Kit at the helm, I just can't help feeling that he is one appointment away from this job. I'd love to be wrong but believe that we really need an experienced manager at this crucial stage, a man like Pullis.
posted by Te (Guest) - Sunday 28th September 2014, 11:22 AM
 
I really would like to know what an 'experienced' manager who knows nothing about our squad's abilities could do that Kit couldn't. Please enlighten me. And I'm fed up to the back teeth reading time and time again about how Pullis would make a difference and that the site is up for redevelopment.
posted by stephen terry (Guest) - Sunday 28th September 2014, 12:25 PM
 
Well, the first thing he would do is organise our defence properly. It may not be pretty to watch, but Pullis knows how to play a system ( not unlike Hodgson when he was with us). Our defence is shocking, and yesterday was no exception
posted by Te (Guest) - Sunday 28th September 2014, 2:20 PM
 
Just to play the devil's advocate: you must admit Pulis did make a big difference at Crystal Palace. And it must have been him, his ability to motivate, organise, bring players in and piece teams together. These might be the qualities that Fulham need. We haven't had someone who can do that since Roy Hodgson left, and since he left the strategy seems to be that, if the players aren't good enough, or the squad is lacking in some areas, then if we get them running up and down hills and putting cheese on the injuries, that the team will go shooting back up the league table. But it seems highly unlikely to me that Pulis would want to come down to the Championship.
posted by peterjeremy - Sunday 28th September 2014, 2:22 PM
 
I have to agree, peterjeremy, that he probably wouldnt want to come to us. What really impressed me during Hodgson's reign was his ability to play a system, and communicate it throughout the club, resulting in the easy substituting of players, as everyone slotting in knew his role, and place in the team....it was both efficient and effective, and we haven't seen its like since he left. I suppose that was the basis on which the Anfield Bootroom system worked so well for so many years

It's ironic, Te, that you should mention favourably compare Hodgson with Liverpool, where of course he fared so badly.
posted by peterjeremy - Sunday 28th September 2014, 7:57 PM
 
Yes, good point, peterjeremy. It's also ironic that we are seeking salvation in a guy like Pullis, who produces dour footballing teams. Hodgson couldn't cope with star players and works better with pliable players who are more biddable. Liverpool of old were so very, very different to the current premiership style of individual mercenaries

Indeed Kit COULD be what we need. However his inexperience at this level means his appointment would be a risky one. If he isn't cut out for this level, should Mr. Kahn then be searching for his fifth manager around Xmas? We just can't afford to get this appointment wrong, and hence I would be surprised if Kit gets the job. The only way he should get the job is if he is willing to continue as care taker until Xmas and if he then has proven his worth, he should get the job. On the other hand, not sure we want to be "managerless" for a few months....

I have supported Fulham for more than 50 years and have never witnessed such poor performances week after week for the best part of 2 seasons in a row. I am not blaming Kit, he has Fulham in his blood like me, and only wants the best for our team.
I just want to ensure that just because we scraped past Doncaster Rovers, and we beat a team actually worse than us today, we must not get on our high horse and really believe we have the players to lift us up the table. I have not seen what one would call a decent side that we have played yet in this league, but ours is actually worse than nearly all of them. Admittedly, our second half performance today was much better than our first, but Birmingham displayed our normal tendencies to play utter crap in the second period. We do have half of a decent side, but the other half are not good enough to win too many games in the Championship. Bettinelli, Burn, Hoogland, Parker, MacCormack and maybe Smith with a few of our youngsters on the bench would be a starting point for an experienced manager to begin with. Add about 5 decent loan players and we would have the basis of a pretty good team. Kit should stay and get further experience alongside a new manager before he gets full reign. I do not want him thrown in now, and should we get relegated, find himself the next Fulham FC manager sacked.
Replies
First against Cardiff we roasted them, same against Donnie just didn't have a goal scorer as should have been 3 or 4 up by HT. Now with Kit he should get the players playing in their right positions and within a steady formation. What we need is consistency 5 new players would kill our season. The one loan we need is Sidwell.
posted by Phil (Guest) - Sunday 28th September 2014, 7:08 AM
 
Logically we were good enough, because we won. If you mean our squad is not good enough to make an impact in this division, I would suggest that's conjecture. Confidence, motivation, and a desire to win even with average players, if installed by Kit, could be good enough to hold our own. The second half revival is evidence that belief is coming back - give it a few more weeks to see if the early promise is fulfilled.
posted by stephen terry (Guest) - Sunday 28th September 2014, 7:56 AM
 
Cant we just enjoy winning? It's been a long time, hey we might even beat Bolton on Weds as well. One things for sure we now have a man in charge who the players WANT to play for if they ain't good enough then he will rebuild. Bring in a new man and the Applecart could be easily turned over again and we are back to square one.

Any sensible Fulham supporter would agree that we are not good enough, but, as I've said before, we "just" need to limp to the opening of the transfer window, and hope that we are still in with a shouting distance of staying in this division. Thereafter, a new, EXPERIENCED manager with sufficient funds should see us through to a mid table finish, with better to come next year. Failing that, I'm afraid it's curtains, and only a housing crash can save us from redevelopment

why does he take all the free kicks and most of the corners? I believe he is employed to be a striker, so he should be on the receiving end of the above.Also is this the end of the Ruiz farce? utter rubbish and not fit to be on the bench for the school parents v teachers game.Congrats to Betinelli for a great performance we would have lost but for two great saves.COYW's
Replies
Ruiz is the only player we have who exudes class. In the games against Blackburn and Doncaster his passing - his ability to pick the right pass - set the tone. We need him. Stop knocking, he'll be gone soon enough. Any chance we can get Sidwell back. We do need a destroyer in midfield. My second choice would be Tunnicliffe. And stop talking about Bettinelli as if he's a novice. The lad is 22 years old.

Hugo missed 2 sitters 2nd half (unforgiveable) could have cost us a fortune. The team played much better than previous matches though birmingham were very poor and hopefully if we find a similar bolton next weds which may help give us points and confidence to start putting the pieces back together.Also good to see a FFC manager stood up all match.Best for me was that for once in years we went ahead but didnt go back and defend and cock it up as usual. Still believe KIT is the best.cant see anybody else better.

Fair play to you boys that went I was sat in b'ham end (missus grandparents bought the tickets and they are b'ham fans) you boys were amazing singing the whole game. Loved the cheese song when Parker went down at the beginning.

COYW! Knew this game was important after the doncaster game. Had to win, and did so. Anyone is better than magath. Anyone. Hugo missing sitters is fine, cos at least he's up there. He'll eventually get goals.

Two wins in one week. Kit has done himself no harm with those results. He's doing the right thing in eeking out wins first and then we can start to think about performances.

Well I never........
A team worse than us and we actually hold on to a lead. Roll on Wednesday, another crap team and 3 more points.

Just watched the 1st half (no commentary), and Birmingham are just about the worst team I have seen in this league so far. That says everything about us. We were woeful. Poor passing, lack of effort, bad defence again, and another gifted goal.
If we cannot get any points from this game then we look doomed for relegation.
Oh no, another 45 minutes to endure.
What excuses this week Kit? Don't keep telling the team they are good when they are not. Poor sod who takes over this lot.

Nothing new, we have been poor all season and Kit has no idea how to change anything. He puts almost the same team out who struggled against Doncaster I have no doubt the subs will be the same at roughly the same times and we will come away with nothing but kit will tell us what a good and happy camp we have. It gets more and more depressing

Wonder what team Brian supports, certainly not Fulham!
posted by Duggan (Guest) - Saturday 27th September 2014, 5:49 PM
 
Duggan, I have supported Fulham for more than 50 years and have never witnessed such poor performances week after week for the best part of 2 seasons in a row. I am not blaming Kit, he has Fulham in his blood like me, and only wants the best for our team.
I just want to ensure that just because we scraped past Doncaster Rovers, and we beat a team actually worse than us today, we must not get on our high horse and really believe we have the players to lift us up the table. I have not seen what one would call a decent side that we have played yet in this league, but ours is actually worse than nearly all of them. Admittedly, our second half performance today was much better than our first, but Birmingham displayed our normal tendencies to play utter crap in the second period. We do have half of a decent side, but the other half are not good enough to win too many games in the Championship. Bettinelli, Burn, Hoogland, Parker, MacCormack and maybe Smith with a few of our youngsters on the bench would be a starting point for an experienced manager to begin with. Add about 5 decent loan players and we would have the basis of a pretty good team. Kit should stay and get further experience alongside a new manager before he gets full reign. I do not want him thrown in now, and should we get relegated, find himself the nexe Fulham FC manager sacked.

Brian I do agree with your assessment of the last two seasons and the current situation, but I found your earlier comments negative, although understandable they dampened my elation following our first league victory. I can't match your 50 + years, but I have been going down to the Cottage for 44 years, and I can only agree that Magath ripped the heart out of our team, there is an enormous amount of work to do on improving and strengthening the current Fulham squad. For now let's hope for another three points on Wednesday.

Birmingham vs Fulham... what are your predictions? Can we get our first win? will someone get sent off? or will it be same as usual?
Replies
We'll win with two goals difference. Nobody getting sent off. Ruiz will shine. COYW!
