Reading loads of post below and please someone challenge me on this post if you think im being negative etc... about the new season.

I would like to bring the subject of Ashkan Dejagah!!!

After he had played in his 1st world cup (and yep he had a good world cup) he used that platform to state and i quote "i love Fulham but not in the championship, i think i am better than that"

Now thats a fair enough statement if your telling Prem Lge clubs to come and get me, or trying to put yourself in the shop window to join a mid table european side and maybe progress his career further.

So today he is very close to completing his £5m transfer to the footballing juggernaught that is..... wait for it.. No not Ac Milan, No Not Ajax, No Not Dortmund, No Not Madrid but........ Al Arabi Fc of Qatar.

Now ive followed football all my life and although i dont know everything im going to stick my neck out that the English Championship is a higher standard than the Qatar league?? Anyone disagree??

To me this is a kick in the nutsack yet again, this is a player who took his time to settle at Fulham, the fans always stuck with him even though some games he couldnt even avoid tripping over his shoe laces, he came good at the end of the season and honestly i think with the right attitude and commitment he could have taken the Championship by storm and become a bit of a Fulham legend like the glory side of the last promotion.

Instead he chooses to go and play Sunday morning football where they probably have more money than sense.

The decision can only be about money and not ambition.

Thats whats wrong with football nowadays and why i am beginning to hate the modern day footballer more and more each season.

Couldnt care less who comes and go's, even when you rebuild it can all go wrong, look at Southampton as an example, go downm, down again, bring youth through and some good scouted players and then once your back in the big time watch the big boys nick 9 of your players. You cant win whatever you do.

Why are all these players leaving for free?
I cannot believe players are leaving for free. At the very least we should be getting a transfer fee for every player leaving with a contract. What are the board doing?

Reducing the wage bill of players who clearly are not worth it. I mean Rodellega £70 k a week. Do me a favour

Bonkers letting him go. But what can we expect from this lot?
And with stekelenburgs exit inevitable, can we really rely on 2 unproven goalkeepers in a league that us as a football club, know very little about?
posted by Guest (Guest) - Monday 28th July 2014, 6:46 PM
very odd decision. Stekelenburg was injured at least twice last year, not sure if he was injured or dropped for Stockdale at the end of last season, and we've also let etheridge go so as it stands there is very little cover. I also find it strange that we've decided to sell him to another championship team.

I am getting seriously bored with all the 'this lot' & 'Magoo' crap. You've had all summer to moan. ENOUGH. All the players you're complaining have left are the same players you spent all last year having a pissing whine about. Whilst I vaguely assumed that the never ending whinging by some of the people on here was because we had a terrible season I've come to realise that actually this message board is peopled by 'fans' who want to tell you that they're fulham 'till I die' whilst slagging everything off. EVERYONE wanted a clean start with the young players being brought in at the end of last season. That's exactly what's happened. And now get behind the boys or F off.
posted by bassim - Monday 28th July 2014, 9:39 PM
Agree with you Bassim. Good players brought in, a team that seems together and a satisfactory pre season. It doesn't matter what we do some people will just moan for no reason.

I like Stockdale but he couldn't earn a 1st choice under any of our managers. They couldn't all be wrong so the best way forward for him and the club is to let him find his place elsewhere. He let in an awful lot of goals last season and whilst he was behind a crap defence he didn't cover himself in glory. A move is good for him and for the club and a fee has been paid. Again I don't see the problem.
posted by Steve (Guest) - Monday 28th July 2014, 11:21 PM
Brighton seem to have a good deal and presumably we have lined up another goal keeper, Bogdan did look decent when I've seen him play. If that's the case did Stockdale choose to leave rather than stay and risk not being the number 1? Disappointing after all the talk of how he wanted to stay and get us back up but it would make sense. My main issue isn't the decision but that I'd prefer we had brought a player in before selling.
posted by fortressfulham (Guest) - Monday 28th July 2014, 11:24 PM
Bassim, you may be getting fed up with us moaners, as you call us, but we are the very same people who warned that Fulham was courting disaster during recent seasons and were proven correct. Sorry if we tell it as it is, but, we are entitled to love the club, if not it's management.
posted by Te (Guest) - Tuesday 29th July 2014, 5:23 AM
Sorry Te but I agree with Bassim. You say it's people like you who saw it coming, well you didn't have to be a genius to notice no one was up for it. You all come on here week after week calling for the managers head who ever it was and demanded we play the young players. Now Khan is putting his money where his mouth is ' the moaners ' are still not happy. Give it a chance. It can only be an improvement on the rubbish that didn't care a toss. I for one am looking forward to seeing young hungry talent playing for my team. And these players are talented. CANT WAIT. COME ON YOU WHITES
posted by Sig (Guest) - Tuesday 29th July 2014, 7:04 AM
I saw it coming as most people did half way through two seasons ago when we stopped playing football, stopped caring and stopped trying. But that's why everything is changing. So stop complaining about it changing. Every time we buy someone somebody says we paid too much or that we should have got so and so instead. Every time we get rid of a player we should have got more money or should have kept that one. You were right to moan and complain during that period but the club are trying to move on and a lot of planning seems to be going on so let's embrace change and look to the future.

What is our first team likely to be, and why were so many senior players missing from the overseas tour?
With Magath, you'll never know - I think he's one of those managers that keep on tinkering with the formation. Like last year.

So Amorebieta wants out. All part of the problem if you ask me. More cons than pros with him. Move on your not part of the plan
Please show him the door and give him his bus fare. Absolutely useless.
posted by Mortlake (Guest) - Sunday 27th July 2014, 4:32 PM
I will be very happy if Amorebieta leaves the club, he is a liability across the back four.
posted by redJack (Guest) - Sunday 27th July 2014, 4:54 PM
...and Rodellega also wants out. That really is not good news. It would appear that not many people are keen to play for Magath, unless they are young, innocent or just plain desperate.
posted by Te (Guest) - Sunday 27th July 2014, 6:12 PM
Eight new players with more to come are happy to play for Magath. Rodellaga wants to go because he knows he will never be first choice. McCormack will be first choice along with Mitroglou if he stays or Dembele if he doesn't. Rodellega would have been a bit part player. I know it's only pre season but the spirit in the camp seems as good to me as it has ever been and we have choices in nearly every position. I really can't see why people are looking for problems at this time.
posted by Steve (Guest) - Sunday 27th July 2014, 8:34 PM
I don't think it's Magath that they won't play for. I think they believe they are better than they really are and want to play in EPL. Do they forget it was them who got us in this mess in the first place. None of them had the balls to stand up and take responsibility but can't wait to jump ship. Well boys I got news for you. We got a new team , young and Hungary and there's no room for passengers so if you can't shape up ship out. COYW

Oh yeah, Rodallega wants to go to River Plate. He cried when Fulham fans had a go at him. Wait till they have a pop. He'll have a break down

Have we found another star? Cameron Burgess ,another scot playing at c-b seems to have no qualms about moving up to the first team, so , were is Burns? is he injured? has not played yet ,or so it seems, and now we are looking at another c-b from Lille, are we collecting them?.PS will we have the youngest team in championship if Hyndman and Dembele play with Roberts also in the frame.

it can not be true?have they not learnt their lesion from last season with wilkins,curbishly and rene?there is a rumor that chris hughton is joining fulham as a backroom staff or director of football.why the hell they need him?they have felix and grant already.those three trios messed up last season and we simply could not allow this to happen.it better not be true.
Not to sure thats a problem, he has been round the block and took Newc up from championship and Birmingham, so is familiar with the needs to get out and up into the Prem.With Felix and Grant coaching and Houghton assistant manager it could jell well, after all on a scale of 1-10 who we could get if Felix goes we wont go higher than about 5, so he may just fall into that slot and take over from Felix, you cant compare to last seasons debacle, one manager never worked for 4 years, one just read orders at Man -Utd one was kicked out of several clubs,think he would be a good go between and communicator.

Funny how several teams are suddenly quite happy to pay large sums of cash for players in the lower leagues, 10 mill for brighton player , no probs Watford holding out for 10 mill for Deeney, suddenly we have got ourselves a bargain. Funny old game , now for a class mid f with exp , what happened to Steven Naismith who was linked with us? great buy 26 loads of exp and another scot , so why the hold up .

Having played Crawley Town recently, somebody raised the concern of the match becoming a regular fixture, suggesting that Fulham were likely to get relegated. Statistically promotion this season is unlikely, just under 1 in 4 relegated teams bounce back in their first season with just under 1 in 3 achieving the bounce back within two years of relegation. In the "Where are they now?" Category three years after relegation, 1 in 26 are in League 1, so unless Crawley get promoted, chances are we won't be playing them too frequently in the near future.
It is good to hear how positive you are not. The manager is molding a team and I wonder if you will be on this board in May when we ARE promoted Just be positive for a change and look forward to a great season
posted by Purleypirate (Guest) - Thursday 24th July 2014, 9:21 AM
Purley, I have been a relatively frequent poster on this site for years and years and I am positive. The post was a response to a comment made on this site following the Crawley Town fixture. The individual in question suggested that it would be a regular fixture within a few seasons, to which my response was, "Do you really think Crawley have got what it takes to get promoted?" This response was data, nothing more and nothing less. How you interpret data is a different matter. The statistics are just that and I am confident we will have a good season, while many others are not. Either way to be brutal I don't mind, because I love being a part of the whole Fulham experience and have done since the dark days of the 90's. I'm ecstatic when we win and I manage a chuckle when we lose.

Relegation won't surprise me. The pre-season friendlies were dim and against dim teams. Others flew out to foreign countries and we went to exotic scotland. Ultimately, the only league we can get promoted to is the scottish premier league. But you know what, I prefer division two over that to be honest.

The Fulham ticket office has been ringing up Fulham fans sitting at the Putney End suggesting they might like to relocate for the Millwall game! Could be the biggest away contingent we've seen at the Cottage for some time. And I'm sure they'll uphold the finest traditions of behaviour and courtesy we've come to expect from the Millwall following.
We can throw them some bricks to chew on
posted by Sig (Guest) - Wednesday 23rd July 2014, 3:03 PM
It is surely now time to segregate the Putney End?!

We no longer have the 'lure' of Premier League football to sell to tourists and neutrals.

So let's stop giving any well supported or London based team the huge, near home, advantage of having what inevitably becomes an entire stand to themselves!!

So Fulhamish...

Never seen Millwall 1st hand so im gonna go with my two boys with an open mind hoping that the fans behave themselves..

One thing i am concerned about is that the Millwall fans seem to be buying a massive contingent of seats in the so called nuetral zone?? The Nuetral zone and the family zone are literally a stones throw from each other, if its gonna kick off then it will right in front of so many kids eye's and they will be 1st in line for the assault!

All the fans can come on here and attack us for being posh. polite, quiet... etc... etc...

What we are is proper football fans, win lose or draw i havnt seen one piece of aggravation at the ground in ten years, its the best ground in the country to bring your kids too, sure there are always idiots who away from the ground find a place to have a scrap but as long as they stay away from me and mine i couldnt give a shit who they are fighting with.

I go with an open mid to the game, i hope i come out thinking what was all the fuss about but honestly if we put three or four past them im dreading the walk outside the stadium!

Think we will also have the same problem with Leeds when they come to town as well especially as they seem to have taken offence at our purchase of McCormack!

RANT OVER.

Don't follow lower league football? Surprised you bothered watching Fulham at all given the frequency of our lower league style performances over the last 12 years! With the exception of the Europa dream year, by far the best season I have enjoyed at the club was being champions of the old Division 1, the year we earned promotion to the Premiership. The football was slick, the 5-0 hammering of Watford a joy to behold and such a great atmosphere!
posted by Scrawnee (Guest) - Thursday 24th July 2014, 4:12 PM
Adam, I have seen Millwall first hand but that was in the 70s and things have changed quite a bit since then happily. I don't get to The Cottage too often living in Sydney but I did manage a game a couple of seasons ago with my son. I sat in the Hammy End and there was a father with two small children in front of me. There might not have been any agro but the language was disgraceful. Why anyone feels the need to scream Fs & Cs at the top of their voice with wives and children in close proximity I will never know. I certainly wouldn't take my kids along which is very sad. My son was 20+ by then so it didn't really matter, but I was totally embarrassed for the guy in front of me. Perhaps I'm just getting old...
posted by Hints (Guest) - Thursday 24th July 2014, 11:27 PM
It's stunning that you can make a complaint about bad language around kids and nothing is done about it. I had a total tosser near us who my kids nicknamed Mr Angry as he used to rant and swear so much. He one day shouted, "F you Ronaldo you dago C!" I turned and said, " he might be an effin C, but leave the racist comments out of it!" He told me to F off so I laughed and told a steward about the racist comment. Two minutes later he was escorted out of his seat by a dozen stewards, arrested and later had his day in court, to no avail as the only witness they produced was me. My word against his! Still at least he was banned from the ground until the court case which was a third of the season! The more we make a stand, the more chance there is that things will change!

Have we ever bought a decent player from Arsenal? Winger is too savvy to let a good player go, unless forced.

Yes, there are question marks against his ability to disappear from the game, but he's only a youngster, and one that could thrive under Magath. But I am worried that we now have a proliferation of youngsters and very few experienced players. My money is on the season after next if we fail to attract established talent.
