Three times Fulham goes down, three times Fulham comes back. All while resting four of our senior players (Hoogland, Ruiz, Hugo, Amorebieta).
We gave so many leads away under Jol and Felix and dropped so many points. Under Kit, we come back. Time to drop 'caretaker' and make it permanent.
A bit more balanced view is to consider that Rotherham had 4 shots on goal and scored 3 goals. Further, I don't think anyone is arguing for Jol or Felix to be reinstated. I'm open minded on Kit, but don't think it is a slam dunk appointment given Kit's lack of experience...

The team and the club is going in the right direction. It's a point away from home, and I'm sure kit isn't happy with his defence for conceding three against rotherham. But with a decent chunk of first team players rested, todays result was a good one me thinks. COYW!!

On way back from game - we should have won. Our midfield is too lightweight and Dembele is rubbish. Not sure why Smith didn't start and this was a physical war with a poor ref. I thought we looked naive. Should have collected 3 points. Kit didn't do himself any favours

I'm very much a doubter. I have no doubt the players are playing for him and I have no complaints with the effort and results. Where I still have problems is the selections and substitutions. With all the matches at the moment a young player who has been rated at 10 to 20 millions, i know thats for his future ability, can't get a look in. Chris David rated by most people can't even make the bench and the experience of Smith who has proven ability with McCormack can't get a game. In fact when we need something extra he brings on Dembele instead who has gone backwards. Smith for some reason is 5th choice. If you are going to rest Parker why bring him on at all?. I love the spirit at this time but i think there are mistakes being made. Before anyone slags me of can I add this is MY opinion.

Clearly, conceding three goals is something to address, but all credit to the comeback and spirit shown. A point away in this division is good, and the results so far under Kit is excellent. Patience, Steve, our young guys will get their chances as will other squad members - this is a tough and relentless league. As for Dembele he needs confidence in his ability - I suspect Kit is trying to nurture him along. Once he finds his feet, he will score many goals for us. And I can see why Kit won't risk Smith yet in close matches just in case he gets red-carded again.

Giving up 3 against Rotherham? Bring Chris Hughton in tomorrow.

Funny how Kit is grinding out all these wins and draws with no experience.

Man management is a huge part of the game, and Kit is excelling at it. These guys want to go to war for him.
As for people questioning the omissions of David and Roberts...they're talented but incomplete players right now. They don't defend or win 50/50 balls. Kit is featuring Lasse and George Williams because they're not just skilled, they're strong physically. And it's early in the season. These kids will get matches in the League Cup & FA Cup.

Extremely happy with the boys efforts last night. To come back 3 times shows real character. Rotherhams goals were extremely lucky - offside, deflections so on the night, to get the point away when the luck was riding against us is a job well done!

I have to think Roberts wasn't played because Symons was concerned about how he and Zverotic would cope defensively. Its disappointing we conceded 3 but that is the problem with young players they make errors, they will learn with time. Year on year I have heard people say give our youth a chance, well they're getting it and they're starting to do well under Symons but learning how to see out games and cutting out silly goals takes time and experience. More worrying is that our tempo seemed to start out a little slowly yesterday, perhaps because we had a new midfield in place. After they scored first I thought we were the better side for the remainder of the game. What is so encouraging is we came back 3 times away from home. AWAY! FROM HOME! I cant think of the last time we managed that

I understand if Roberts is used sparingly or for various games but not at all?. I cannot understand bringing on Dembele who has done nothing on the pitch and brought nothing to the games and not Roberts who when he has come on as sub in the past the attacking potential has increased dramatically. When David has played we again have more threat up front so when he isn't getting any game time i wonder why.
