If we were lucky enough to get to play offs and freakishly got to prem,who or how ,many of the present squad would you keep?,my take would be button,(second choice),klass, cairney, fredericks, McDonald,olafson,Sessignon will leave for sure.Struggling now, with loans going back S/J would have a mammoth job rebuilding,so if you then had 3 spots to buy in what positions would you go for?,Keeper,big guy with attitude,striker the same,another center back get a strong spine.Normal service now resumed.

Good question but it's a nice problem to have if we do get promoted! With a 4 year guaranteed income of Minimum £200m - we will be In a good place! I am also certain unlike Hull or yo-yo clubs like Norwich and Burnley, Khan will invest to sustain premier league status! Sorry I am begging to sound like we' are promoted!!! Lets take one step at a time!!

Unlike last time we reached prem afraid this group of players could need. Wholesale changes. Afriid we might need to do a burnley take cash. And come down regroup for another go. Following season but that needs commitments and risks !!!!!

I think 75 points is enough for a play-off place this year. We have 53 and 13 games to go. This means we to, for example, win 6, draw 5 and lose 2. We are mentally much stronger as a team - so I don't think we will lose more than 2 games. If we do, would be away to Huddersfield and Newcastle. I am confident we can win 6 games from the remaining fixtures - PNE, Blackburn,wolves, Brentford, Villa and Ipswich. So if we avoid stupid defeats and tighten the defence a bit more, we are in with a shout! Even if we don't, we have more points than the whole of last season with 13 games to go!! That's progress! So let's be positive!!
Replies
I was thinking 70-74 points when I looked at the list. Anything more will be a real achievement and is possible. I'm happy how things have went and joka's contract is sorted so promotion or not i think things will only improve COYW

Are the 2 point dropped the points that keep us out of play offs?, lucky reading have slowed up so gives us another team to catch, forget leeds ,we are now in effect two games behind Wednesday could have been one but again we caved in so easy,to pressure,another humdinger next week end we have to win or else.

We are still in with an outside chance of a top 6 spot, but I feel a bit of a pessimist, as I really wouldn't fancy our chances of winning a play off at Wembley, or even getting there, as we would probably be knocked out before we got there, as in my opinion our squad is far too lightweight, and the more physical sides like Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday, would stop us playing our game.
posted by Peter Smith (Guest) - Sunday 26th February 2017, 12:00 PM
 
Maybe if we play our football Sheff. Wed wont get a look in, if Brentford can beat them up there, also 'our' has got us where we are. No, not good news about Lucas but other teams have injury worries to. 39 points still to play for and playoffs very doable. At least we are looking up and not over our shoulder has the past four seasons. Fat lady....no can't hear her. COYWs.

Before we played Bristol City and Cardiff away, we were hoping for 4 points from the two games, although we would have loved all 6, but that was really pretty high hopes. Well we did gain 4 valuable points, and yesterday's draw at Cardiff, was in fact a really good result. Cardiff were in hot form, only losing 1 match in their last 5, and that was an unlucky 1-0 defeat away to Norwich. They won away at Leeds 2-0 and Derby 4-3, and showed this form in their last home match by thrashing Rotherham 5-0. Warnock was also determined to put one over us, after we knocked them out of the cup, and the weather was very poor, which didn't help our football. So all in all as I have said, this was a very good result. We must however follow this up with a home win over PNE on Saturday.

Once again 72% possession 6 shots on target 2 less than Cardiff. Why? Can anyone xplain. As SJ is a very good manager it might be that with a weak defence and no one who is a decent striker keeping possession is the best policy to avoid losing,If so we are going nowhere. Must admit I'm at a loss.

Watching Brighton against Reading, shows the complete contrast between them and us. We play football just as good, if not better than them, but the have bloody STRIKERS, and we will pay the penalty for not investing in the January window. By the way, does anyone know why Chris Martin was not even on the bench today ? ?

Agree with you FFCin B however looking at statistics in this match if you take 94 minutes and times that by 28% which is how long Cardiff had the ball and the divide it by 18 the number of shots they had It means they shot every 1.46 mins. That doesn't even take into account the time the ball spent out of play. I think this shows our defending was pretty poor.
posted by Midds (Guest) - Saturday 25th February 2017, 8:29 PM
 
They had 18 shots , we had 16 shots. They had 8 on target , we had 6 on target. You can interpret statistics how you like. You could say it took them 8 shots to score 2 goals when it took only 6 shots for Fulham to score 2.

posted by Never say Die ! (Guest) - Sunday 26th February 2017, 2:10 AM
 
Guys. We keep possession because we have no defenders. If you let the opposition possess the ball even at 45%, chances are high that they will score 4 goals from their 7, 8 or 9 raids. When you possess the ball, you restrict them to 2 or 3 raids. If they score from all of them, at least you have a chance of drawing 3:3 or winning 4:3 and if you lose, at least it will not be by an embarrassing margin. Good defenders may be difficult to get, but the tbaffling thing was not going for one of the top 4 high scoring strikers in the championship during the January window. Perhaps we are happy with the progress of our academy strikers or even the support strikers and didn't see the point of spending big this season.

Why did you buy FFC Shahid? Well...the good news is, if you can trust anything or anybody in football these days is, SJ is with us until 2019. Despite my not understanding 2 thirds of what he has to say, the players do and he has been GREAT for FFC. So, Shahid has passed on the running of FFC to his son. Certainly the world is a very different place these days with very many more mega rich individuals who not only have more money than they know what to do with but, buy ever more expensive toys for their kids to play with! Anyway, before I get MST and the followers accusing me of ????., I am really no different to you. I want FFC to succeed as I have supported them for nearly 60 years, a curse due to my father bringing me here as he was a Fulham fan and resident.

Mike what's your point? What would you have liked to see that hasn't happened yet? We spent billions and on top of the league!? Let's be realistic and if we are going to bash the owners, show some facts and not perception! We have to be careful what we wish for! Look at Blackburn. Look at Nottingham forest. Look at Hull. Now even look at Leicester who have gone from 2nd most liked premier league club to probably most or 2nd most disliked club in the country!

Hopefully we can make the play offs, lets fill the cottage and help get them there, if we don't then we can look forward to next season and if we can keep the players we have now and make a few new signings which should be 2 forwards and an experienced centre half we will be there. Joka should also be given praise as he has turned this team around, got rid of dead wood and brought in some good players as well as given the young a chance and stands by his beliefs.

I'm guessing your post is tongue in cheek but if not what on earth are you talking about??

Songs have been sung at football matches since time and memorial. How does not signing make you a man? Some of the funniest things I've heard have been incorporated into football songs - football fans have the best sense of humour ever.

I also think you might like to remember that women and children also attend football matches; would you like them to man up too?

Someone mentioned below the London's burning was pretty inspiring at half time.

It wasn't me but someone came up with the following lyrics to London's burning in 2010/11 and I thought they were brilliant and worth sharing again:

London calling to the faraway towns
All over Europe, the challenge is down
London Calling there’s nowhere to hide
The white tide is coming, the world’s greatest side
London calling to the Banks of the Nile
The Son of the Pharaohs, has made London smile
London calling, you’d better believe
Fulham will win the Europa League

CHORUS
We’ve been to the Baltic, we’ve conquered the Steppes
The Romans have fallen we’ve won in Donetsk
The white wave is rolling, the tide’s on the rise
The waters will lift us ‘cause we, Live by the river.

London Calling to the crowds of Turin
The Old Lady’s had it, she’s been done in
Were you there, at the Hammersmith End?
On the 18th of March Two Thousand and Ten
London calling generations to come
Fulham have beaten Juventus 4 – 1
London calling abroad and beyond
The Blues have been banished, the Whites carry on

CHORUS
Wolfsburg is waiting, then Hamburg is next
The Germans will crumble in SW6
The white wave is rolling, the tide’s on the rise
The waters will lift us ‘cause we, Live by the river.

If anyone knows who wrote these lyrics, I'd love to know?

"Tony also understands the scrutiny and responsibility that will come with this assignment. Tony welcomes it, as do I." Hardly a ringing endorsement, more like a warning. Nepotism at its finest. Appoint your son and his number crunching friend, neither of whom know the first thing about football, and stand back. No ambition in the PR guff other than a qualified mention of getting back into the prem. No mention of funds, no mention of retention, just self congratulatory pats on the back. As I said in a previous smoke, this lot are blowing smoke up your arse and when you've all stopped screaming like girls at a boy band concert you might, just might, see that. Glad for SJ. You can keep the rest.

Great news Jokanovic deal and as lve said before a part from Mr MAF the Khans have backed the club better than any board in our history the summer was a good window January not so good .when they first came brought the Creek badly advised put put there money in brought McCormack when we went down not many of the players we let go who took us down did much would have liked to keep Stockdale blame the mad German for that . Mistakes yes commitment yes . And we've started to get it right

Agree. We have to stop the Khan bashing!!

I have voiced my support for them many times and will continue to do so. If you had the expectation that Khan will spend unlimited amount of money then you will be disappointed with him. The reality is he couldn't. If you expected Khan to spend what is required to ensure the club is healthy and stable, I think he has kept his commitment. He is investing, while not throwing money at it, wisely starting with the infrastructure, clearing the old mess and hopefully, if we get promoted, he will build a new stand and also reinvest the premier league money. If we don't get promoted, he will invest a bit more to try again next year.

I would certainly do it and if you wouldn't you are either a bit of a fibber or have no trust in your own flesh 'n' blood!

No disrespect meant but in my opinion there is nothing wrong with family businesses (apart from the Muddymans that is) and they have been the life blood of this country for hundreds of years - it's Corporations that have taken the GREAT out of Britain.....isn't it??

MST Here is the Tony Kahn bio. Please highlight those areas which you think qualify him to be Director of Football! Tony Khan was named Senior Vice President, Football Technology & Analytics for the Jaguars in July of 2012 and is entering his fourth season in that role. Khan arrived in Jacksonville after serving as General Manager and a member of the Board of Managers of Bio-Alternative LLC since 2008. The 32-year-old Khan vacated his position at Bio-Alternative in June, 2012 in order to take on his current role. Under Tony Khan's guidance, the Jaguars created a Football Technology and Analytics group in 2012. In addition to being a valued asset to the coaching and scouting departments, this group also explores new technology and its applications within all areas of the Jaguars organization. These areas include fan experience, player development and injury prevention in addition to game analysis and player evaluation. In 2015, Khan also created the statistical research department at the Fulham Football Club, a department that he also currently oversees, with an aim to analyze football player performance and to develop proprietary football performance metrics to aid the club's efforts to gain promotion back into the English Premier League. Khan also is the owner and Chairman of TruMedia Networks, a Boston-based engineering firm specializing in sports analytics solutions for leagues, franchises, and media partners across the sports industry. Khan graduated from the College of Business at the University of Illinois in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree in finance. Khan grew up in Champaign-Urbana, Ill., where he was born on October 10, 1982. He graduated from the University of Illinois Laboratory High School in 2001, where his graduating class had the highest ACT average of any class at any school in America. He was also an Illinois State Scholar and a National Merit Semifinalist. The award for dedication to the basketball program at the University of Illinois Laboratory High School is known as the Tony Khan Award. Khan currently serves on the advisory board of the University of Illinois Laboratory High School. He is single and lives in Jacksonville.

MST. The Khan "family business" is making motor parts. Junior is kept well away from that. The second "family business" is the Jacksonville Jaguars, without exception the worst team in the NFL in many years. Maybe Junior and his analytics might make an impression there, you might think, but strangely he's not involved. Now he's running the FFC recruitment program. Despite your long and distinguished list of recent arrivals there is still no sight of the CF, FB and midfielder that reportedly SJ wanted to recruit in the January window. Junior is clearly the man who calls the shots, hence the warning from his dad. Quite where this leaves SJ is hard to fathom, but if he's happy and successful with it then fair enough. As for nepotism I've always found it to counter productive. Just my 2 cents.

If you honestly believed Leicester were going to be anything other than mid table finishers this season you were dreaming. Sometimes you need to know when to move on, quit at the top.

There's no loyalty in football anymore!! If we are promoted this year (would be a miracle achievement by Joka) and then find ourselves in the bottom 3 by Christmas next year - do you think Joka would keep his job?! Most likely No! I think Burnley is the only exception that they are loyal to their manager - and they are being rewarded for it!

posted by John (Guest) - Friday 24th February 2017, 9:10 AM
 
This Loyalty questions go back to what Fulham fans expect from there Players. However, why should they be loyal to a club when the Clubs have NO loyalty to anyone at all. Players have limited careers and if they are offered better prospects,what right have Fans to condemned and shout abuse on there return to the club they left. That's the way of Football and Leicester have demonstrated this adequately. Moral is Appreciate the players while you have them because if they are good, they wont be at Fulham long (Thats History)

Did anyone notice that Conte the Chelsea manager was at the cup game? I was thinking that if we had played a blinder against spurs, conte might have looked again at piazon, and recalled him? I don't know the ins and outs? It somebody would like to explain? I just wonder what is the price on piazon and kallas if we wanted to buy them outright? I imagine it won't be cheap, and when the time comes, khans wallet and bank balance will be tested. Piazon and kallas are vital to our squad, and sooner or later that loan period will end. I just hope we sign these players before somebody else jumps in, newcastle comes to mind...

From what I have seen Piazon will never get a chance to play for Chelsea proper, he's just not good enough. Perhaps Conte was there deciding when he could offload him permanently or more likely to have a close up look at Sessignon.

Excellent news. Joka has the team playing a winning style. This was a huge collection of new players, he's done well integrating them. That said, Fulham's scouting department has had its share of misses. Jozabed was sent back to Spain. No one would say Martin, Sigurdsson, Kebano or Ayite have been resounding success stories. Aluko, Malone, Johansen, and MacDonald have been solid signings. The club still needs to improve in terms of signing the right players. Then again, it's light years better than signing Bent, Riise, Mitroglu, etc.

Championship side Fulham have appointed Tony Khan, son of owner Shahid Khan, as the club's Vice Chairman and Director of Football Operations. In addition to this, Tony Khan has promoted Brian Talbot to Assistant Director of Football Operations and Chief Scout, and Craig Kline to Assistant Director of Football Operations and Director of Statistical Research.
posted by Jim (Guest) - Thursday 23rd February 2017, 5:04 PM
 
Today’s appointment brings a formal structure and recognition to the role that Tony has recently played on the football side of our Club and especially since the conclusion of last season. Tony has served the Club quietly but faithfully and extremely well during that time. He brings new practices to what we’re doing but not at the expense of what would be considered traditional and proven methods. It’s important to remember there is no industry in the world that is succeeding today by doing things exactly the same way as they did yesterday, yet there are also some basic principles of success that are timeless. Tony has respect for the old and new, and that’s what we need to achieve the goal of returning to the Premier League in a manner that is responsible and sustainable for a long time. Tony also understands the scrutiny and responsibility that will come with this assignment. Tony welcomes it, as do I. – SHAHID KHAN

MST . Not sure if it was my post you deleted but will try again It related to the fact that I ( and probably most Sky subscribers) have been informed that as from April 1st my monthly payments were being increased . I got straight on the phone and said I was considering giving up Sky sports as they no longer show Champion league fixtures losing out to BT who also show top Premiership games. As they want to keep their existing customers gave me a new contract for the same price as I'm now paying plus the film channel and an upgrade on my broadband at no extra cost . Give it a go folks you never know what a bit of haggling will bring you.

Dec 29th 2015- Joka's first match Line-up: Lonergan; Fredericks, Stearman, Burn, Ream; Cairney (O'Hara 87'), Parker (Matt Smith 80'), Hyndman, Kacaniklic (Pringle 72'); McCormack, Woodrow May 7 2016-last game of the 2015-16 Season Line-up: Bettinelli; Fredericks (Stearman 18'), Hutchinson, Burn, Ream (Garbutt 74'); Cairney, Parker, Tunnicliffe, Christensen (Hyndman 57'); McCormack, Matt Smith Feb 22 2017 Yesterday Line-up: Button; Odoi, Kalas, Ream, Ryan Sessegnon; McDonald, Johansen; Kebano (Sone Aluko 76'), Cairney, Lucas Piazon (Fredericks 70'); Floyd Ayité (Martin) So Cairney and Fredericks are the only two players to have made it. Interestingly I'm not convinced the players are necessarily better, but Joka has definitely got them playing much better football

I think the players we have brought in are far superior with the likes of Aluko, Ayite, Kalas, Kebano, sessegnon etc etc. Our bench yesterday even had decent players to be brought on.

It's interesting that Ream is still there. I guess the boss likes him a lot but looking at the spurs 0-3 result I have to say that Ream was at fault for the first two goals. That's not to ignore that he was left in the clag by others nor that he was up against a top EPL in-form striker. However it is unlikely he will be good enough for the EPL and I do wonder - if we achieve EPL status in the next year or two, how many of the squad will be good enough. The Hull City yo-yo must not be for FFC. Plan and spend this summer must happen or else!

I've tried to do this without bias. Judging on who the playoff teams and us are playing up until the 1st of April. Huddersfield 75 pts. Fulham. 70 pts. Reading. 69 pts. Leeds. 67 pts. SWFC. 65pts. No jokes about April fools day please. COYW

Was most impressed with last night's display but let's keep our feet on the ground! Two conclusions I came to: 1 Bristol City were very poor opposition who could find themselves in real trouble. 2 In the majority of matches remaining if we create as many chances BUT fail to take enough of them we will be struggling to pick up all 3 points. Sorry to be a pessimist after a good away victory but the attack looked very lightweight. P.S. Thought most of the team played well but Ream, Johansen and Cairney particularly impressed me.

Sorry I should have said ,if we beat Cardiff away. Then 4 out of the next 6 are at home against teams we should beat, Leeds being the hardest. Then you have Newcastle away. Can't see us getting much there. And then it's away to Rotherham. It's not as mad as it sounds people. BELIEVE.

We have 14 games left and 52 points. We are averaging 1.8 points a game so that would mean another 25 points and a total of 77 points. If we get 2 points a game that takes us to 80 points which is top 6 form. The pressure is on the teams above us and one or two will have a bad run. We just have to keep up our form, we don't have to win every game. Reasons to be cheerful.

erase the spurs game out of our heads, and concentrate on our league games.3 On the bounce, not smoking form, but going through the gears nicely. I think they re-ran the piazon goal which involved 23 passes or so? Some fulham fans on here need to give our team a lot more respect really. How can we say that our buys were cheap stake and not good enough? We bought on Aluko in the 70th minute and martin. That shows a lot of strength in depth. I think that we have got our transfer buys exactly right! There is no need to get big money signings just yet, it is a bit of a budget team,but we have quality, with Cairney/piazon/sess/johansen/ect. And we have cyriac to come in properly yet. He might prove to be a big big signing yet. The way fulham are progressing is quietly exciting, We have not peaked yet! I want to say, a full 10 out of ten for slavisa's change of tactics in changing the back formation to a 3 and odi switching, that was a masterclass! They think Steve Maclaren is a good manager? Slavisa Jokanovic is the master!!! The fulham bandwagon is well and truely rolling. The papers say we are rubbish. Let them ask sky to roll that lucas piazon goal with 23 passes again and again,,, QUALITY QUALITY QUALITY!!!

WE ROLLED OVER AGAINST SPURS,ARE WE GOING TO DO THIS TONIGHT? WHY DID WE GET RID OF MATT SMITH,HE HAS NOW BANGED IN HIS SECOND GOAL FOR QPR. EITHER HE LET US DOWN BADLY OR THE CLUB LET HIM DOWN. SOME SERIOUS COMMENTS PLEASE. THE STATS ARE WRONG, NO WAY DID HE SCORE 9 TIMES IN 53 GAMES, TO MY KNOWLEDGE HE ONLY EVER HAD ABOUT A DOZEN STARTS AT THER MOST.
posted by Sir Robby Bobson (Guest) - Wednesday 22nd February 2017, 5:42 PM
 
Matt Smith is fine if you want to play long ball football in the lower leagues. Yes he has banged in a couple but he did that for us at the start and we must give him his dues for the goal against the Toon.

A lovely guy by all accounts but lets be honest, he does not fit in with the way Fulham want to play.

Every second touch is a tackle, his head must be shaped like a threpenny bit as he aims one way and the ball goes another and that's when he actually wins a header, he can't run, he can't hold the ball up, he can't pass accurately, he is just a big lump that tries hard to bully defenders but fails miserably on moist occasions.

Maybe I'm being harsh but in my opinion he is only slightly more refined than the beast.

Said some nice things about FFC and our fans though so can't be all bad. Save your judgment until he's played 10 games for Rangers.

Everyone a player we let go or fail to sign scores people seem to think it's a disaster and we made a big mistake. There is absolutely no way Matt Smith scored nine goals in 12 games I'm afraid. If that was the case he would have been signed by Barcelona....

A Sun newspaper reporter by the name of Dave Kidd, wrote the following article today, which is more that a bit worrying.

Fulham's defeat by Spurs did not show their improvement under Slavisa Jokanovic, and the future looks rocky.

Jokanovic is likely to sign a new deal but owner Shahid Khan's son Tony is lined up as Director of Football and self-styled stats expert Craig Kline is due a status boost. The club is in danger of becoming a play-thing of two American rich kids.

It's the Sun; they wouldn't know the truth if it slapped them in the face - ignore it until you hear something official from Fulham.

I notice there are no "quotes" or "a Fulham source said" even.

no disrespect to our new players, but Kline need to adjust his model to include height and weight! until then forget director of football. He bought gifted Jozabed but he did not have the height or strength to compete in the Championship. He sanctioned the purchases of Aluko, Kebano, Ceric and Aiyta - great players, lovely to watch and fantastic on the ball and can shoot but I wonder collectively how many headers they have scored! I think we have a great team but would be a bonus if we also had a bit more 'body' strength and height to bully the opposition or even kick them when we are not playing 'Barcelona' football.

....But it won't be the end of the world if we don't. These are both away games and it doesn't matter where they are in the table neither games can be seen as easy or foregone conclusions.

Last night's results as well as some of the fixtures at the weekend show that the top six are not infallible and they still have to play each other and half of them play us at home so I don't think anything can be assumed until five games left to go and personally I would rather FFC be in form then than now if we had to choose. They will all drop points between now and the end of the season but as long as we remain consistent then we have a chance.

I would hope for four points but would not be surprised at two and if we get six then happy days.

Spurs game well and truly forgotten - onwards and upwards.

I know that I am repeating what others have already said, but I feel that our next two games will prove that we have, or haven't got what it takes to be involved in a top 6th place this season. We are playing two sides who should be well below us in ability, so if we fail to take 6 points from these two games, then I honestly think that our challenge for this season anyway will come to a full stop, and the top 6 as they are now will be fighting for promotion, and the rest of us will be just be going through the motions for the rest of the fixtures.

I think we should be able to win tonight but Cardiff , on Saturday , are much improved since we smashed them in the cup. My prediction is we will finish on 73 points , judging on the games left. Where this will position us who knows. COYW

Agreed. Also, tonights fixture is particularly crucial because of equal importance to us and BCFC. Us: for the above stated reason and them for Championship survival. BCFC have a difficult run coming up (away to Newcastle next) where they are unlikely to take anything, so they are desparate to take 3 points out of us. The important detail is that they are without 2 of their best players: top scorer Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham and RB Mark Little through injury, so we really need to be taking advantage of this. COYWs.

Agreed, Cardiff are stronger than there position suggests but Bristol has to be 3 points if we are serious about the play off's. Those 3 points against Birmingham still sits badly. Everytime we beat a lower placed team means a draw agains a higher team is not a disaster. We need to make the game in had work for us and be able to put pressure on 5th and 6th place.

the opportunity is far from over and there will lots of results like tonight before the end of the season. let's just hang in there. I have always thought the if we need 3 points at the last game of the season I would take that and if we won we would deserve to be in the play offs. Remember we had to beat Basle away to qualify from our group and we did and then looked what happened. Regarding Sunday, losing to a hat trick from England's centre forward and with Ali and Erikson on their game for the first time in weeks was no disgrace.as disappointed as I was that we were not at our best.

Great job Brentford, did us a favour. Leeds and Sheffield both well within reach as they will both lose more games in the run in. Our away record is improved in recent times (good for playoffs) but our home record seems to have tapered off a bit in recent years. There's no reason not to be optimistic about the prospect of promotion. Slavisa seems a good fit for the club and the academy is one of the best in the country. A couple of signings of absolute quality and the future looks bright. Absolutely no reason why Fulham's aspirations should be lower than brighton/bournemouth/burnley/boro/huddersfield/watford etc. Dark days hopefully behind us Fulham fans. COYW!! P. S. Wish I could get down to the cottage but alas, I live in Australia.

So we rolled over to Spurs. We didnt even try. On that form we would have lost to Sutton United. The game was only 5 minutes old and it was obvious we were not going to win. So plebs dont get excitrd about playoffs, not a snowflakes chance and we have a long way to go, we are no way near ready to return to the premiership. Matt Smith couldnt score for us but I see he is knocking them in at QPR.Good riddance to him.Really disappointed at the way we lost to Spurs,we made them look good.

made them look good they are good very good and i think if they were not involved in europe this season they would be above chelsea we could have played better but you have to hold your hands up sometimes, how much did their team cost, glad it was only three goals .Bristol tomorrow if we don't get anything there I might join the moaner's

The plan for this year is not to be competitive agains Spurs its to work towards promotion.As I have stated before if we got promoted we could spend £20 - £30 miliion on our team for a couple of years. That isnt big in the Prem but its huge in the Championship.

Can't believe Sutton are under suspicion for dodgy dealings with the bookies over when their goal keeping coach ate a pie last night. What is the world coming to??
Replies
Firstly, is it fair for the bookies to offer such a bet?? If he eats, he fixing the bets for he punters, if he doesn't eat, he is fixing the bets for the bookies. Either way, the bookies have put him in a no win situation - is that fair?? No! The winner here is the book maker since they have maximum publicity they wanted for alledgely a few thousand pounds they paid out!! It is ridiculous he is being investigated for criminal offence - what about sun bet?

Just heard the coach on the news , thick or what !

My understanding was that the FA betting rules applied to footbal or sports related betting. Apart from scores and number of goals this would also include the likes of number of throw ins , freekicks , or yellow cards etc. But eating a pie is a non football related action especially in a game he was not even playing in is ridiculous.

Sat in the Johnny Haynes stand for the first time in years at the cup match. What a hole ,old wooden chipped seats,poor leg room ,big pillars, and a gents designed for midgets. To add insult to injury the same price as the Riverside. A Bar area designed to put you off alcohol. Never again. Before our stingy old pennypincher Scrooge owner even thinks about the Riverside he needs to update the JH dump.
Replies
perhaps you'd prefer a tin can?? let's appreciate the character and the tradition. Yes, not much leg room but personally, I'd prefer good old wooden chairs than modern plastic rubbish. Anyway, I believe the stand is protected and cannot be changed.

I think the structure is protected John - the front as it is - and we can't build on top or nothing like that but surely we can be able to put in new seating, don't get me wrong i've sat in the JH many many times but its true, its getting over the hill now - and if possible, give it a facelift - especially seat wise...

Can't do a lot with it listed building !! Part of the charm of ffc !!!

I have sat in the JH stands on several occasions, but I will hope never to do so again, as apart from the leg room, which is terrible, when the sun shines, it comes straight into your eyes(night matches apart)and it is so blinding, that it is almost impossible to see the game at times. I don't know what they can do about that, but I do have a choice, and my choice will always be the Riverside stand.

You say you sat in it for the first time in year's was you smaller then because it has not changed much have you heard the saying once , bitten

just read an article on Collins John- older supporters will remember him as he arrived after we lost John Collins. Thought he was a decent prospect but like a lot of young players lost his way a bit Tried his luck in America but without much success still only 29 so could have a few seasons left if he can get motivated!
Replies
I rememebr Collins , great prospect but just didnt move to the next level. Pity he is 31 now had a tril a Crawley a couple of years ago but didnt work out. But if we are looking at past players , What about Mr Malbranque. Steed is 37 but still playing in the French top division for Caen. I would love to see him back ,even on loan for rest of season. Now he could play the passing game , I used to love when the whole place chanted "STEEEEED" and that was him just walking onto the pitch.

Great memories of Steeeeeeeeeeeeeed but we are trying to move forwards not backwards.
posted by JBH (Guest) - Tuesday 21st February 2017, 12:57 PM
 
I dont really think it is a option although Steed is only 9 months older that Scott Parker , and he isnt doing to bad !

Stephen and Phil alias The Chuckle Boys. Lovely to wake this morning and be greeted by your illuminating posts. It must be so hard for you, supporting such a load of rubbish. Why don't you give yourselves a break and on your way to the ground, take a short detour off Putney Bridge. It would be so easy, and the release........aaah! Heaven :))

Haha. I do think they've got a point bros. Enjoy your football and get behind your team. It wasn't a good performance on Sunday, we didn't really play to our potential, but Spurs are a very strong team. On that performance not many teams in the PFL would done much better. One thing I do know, we're in a far better place than this time last season. Onwards and upwards, the team will play all the better knowing the fans are onside.

Huddersfield playing reading tomorrow. Leeds playing Wednesday on Saturday. If we win our next 2 games, the table could look very different by Saturday 5pm! COYW!
Replies
IF we win our next 2 games. Says it all, really. I don't think for one moment we'll beat both BC and Cdff away from home, albeit our away form is better than most. As to how the table would look if we win both games, we'll probably still be in 8th place, and also chasing a revitalised Norwich. BUT, it's critical for our play-off hopes that these are must-win games for us, which will ease us into our 4 home March fixtures. I see us getting 4 points maximum, however.

But, going forward, we have Newcastle, Derby, Norwich, Huddersfield and Sheffield W away. It's not an easy run in, is it?
posted by stephen terry (Guest) - Tuesday 21st February 2017, 3:25 AM
 
Points on the board are always better than games in hand. Let's face it Birmingham loose 13 and win one - FFC, Bristol destroyed us at home and Cardiff will have a real go - they beat Leeds away. Our players don't put in a shift at leasr Blackburn and Sutton gave it a go. We exited the cup pathetically worst performance of the season. So wake up our manager play Parker and a CF and cut out the back passing.

Forget the Spurs game (it was a mission impossible with the team that was put out and their players in form!), the wins against Wigan and Forest are clearly evident we still have work to do on the defence but more importantly, it shows we have the mentality to grind out results!! Something we could not do early in the season. I am confident we can beat both Bristol and Cardiff! So have some hope - it doesn't cost anything!
posted by John (Guest) - Tuesday 21st February 2017, 9:10 AM
 
We should try to be supportive as unlike a lot of supporters they have nothing to cheer at this stage of the season while we have a exciting run in. The top six do look like a closed shop at the moment and we could go unbeaten for the rest of the season and still miss out. What usually happens around this time is someone goes into free fall like Birmingham have done and possibly Derby might , but of the current top 6 who do you think is going to slip up. They all look very solid at the moment all I can see is we win our game in hand and match Wednesday for the rest of the season and then play them on the last day for a playoff place.

leeds , the next 2 away games will sort our season , but in this league with no traditional cf as it were , i think will cost us , the board let us and janko down in january , lets hope we can keep the team together for next year
posted by moreline (Guest) - Tuesday 21st February 2017, 12:08 PM
 
Leeds ? maybe. I suppose for Sheffield and Leeds it will all come down to there CF. Leeds depend on Chris Woods and Wednesday have gone out and bought Rhodes for £8 million which could be a clever buy but look at Villa £12 million for Ross Mc and then another £12 million for Hogan in January. Deals like that would set us back years.
posted by Tezza - Tuesday 21st February 2017, 1:00 PM
 
Its all up for grabs !! we can look at the fixture list but look at the top six - they still have to play each other, so yes there will be loads of points dropped - all we can do is keep going, match by match..and my favourites to drop out of the top six - Leeds - have lost points in their last games - but as said before, they can pick them up again versus their nearest rivals which in turn can only help our plight...

Beat Cardiff recently and think we best Bristol at there place last year Norwich did burton beat them at w/e can't be that good

I understand sarcasm JBH and if used properly can be quite effective. It would be better employed to make a point rather than simply to scoff at somebody else who may think differently. You now seem to be sitting on the fence concerning this issue I would be interested to hear your real views if your original post was as you say sarcasm. By the way I have no connection at all with gent just appreciate the fact that there are people out there with similar albeit old fashioned views. If wishing for a return to the old traditions of the game is blinkered then guilty as charged.
