I read in the press that both Tom and Slavisa have been put under pressure by Hacks to talk about their loyalty to Fulham.

Reading the quotes (and a little between the lines) it looks as though both are very happy at Fulham and have no plans to leave.

I think that's very good news for Fulham and sends out a message to our Board, the fans, the squad and the rest of the Championship that we are very serious about attaining a position in the play-offs and we have no intention of breaking up a strong management and playing TEAM.

People are quick enough to write on this board about negative transfer rumours so I thought I'd share some optimistic rumours for a change ;-)).

Where does everyone go for drinks before QPR away then? Me and my brother coming from South Wales and haven't been to QPR away yet, want to get in early and get in the atmosphere before going to the ground. Any help or reply I'm grateful for! COYW

belluchis or something like that is the allocated away pub , it's on the green so about 15 minutes walk to ground . There are some other pubs just off the green where you will find some Fulham fans as well . Or a lot congregate in the pubs opposite Hammersmith station before going to ground . Should be cracking atmosphere .

agree some of the songs make me cringe the other week people were singing your f-ki-g st your f-----g s--t i dont know what team it was but it's not nice when there are kid's there and the people singing were not teen's but grown men it was after Fulham scored and instead of getting behind the team with support and praise with a song of some sort they sing that I will give any one a swearing match but there is a time it is not true support or the sort thing I expect from Fulham people

All reference to Mo should now be dropped. The song could go like.

Looks like there's interest in bringing Ross back. If true, what's the plan here? Do you think Ross and Martin can play in the same team? If yes, what would be the formation?? I can't see Ross would come back to sit on the bench. Nor can I see we want to keep Martin for the rest of the season playing second to Ross.

Just what me and mates saying can't see Ross fitting in to our system but Jokanovic l trust

Posted similar yesterday - basically who gives way for "new striker". Ross or not, the system will need changing if decent striker comes in! But 2 out and out strikers, don't think Joka is having that.

I would stick with the same formation at the moment the 4-2-3-1. I would put Cairney on the right side, drop Aluko and put McCormack behind martin. McCormack might not be able to run past defenders like Aluko but he certainly can finish better than him.
posted by Sam (Guest) - Thursday 19th January 2017, 11:54 AM
 
We could get McCormack back and stick him on the subs bench. He's good at that and had lots of practice. He could have a couple of pies while waiting.

When you guys get McCormack back can you get Ruiz, mitroglou and berbatov to come back. None of them wanted to play for us either.

Hey, Anyone got any suggestions for good streaming sites that work from outside UK and will show Saturday's game? I've not had to use for a while, so a bit out of touch. I'm in Tokyo and seems that's my only option. Thanks. COYW.

It's being shown on Sky Sports 1. Fortunately, I have an Android box that links to a provider (Mobdro) that streams most everything including sports channels (all free). If you google mobdro you can get free download. The picture quality is satisfactory (not HD) and minor interruptions in streaming at times. Best of luck.

Exactly. We need fresh legs to cope with the huge number of games to be played, especially if we have a cup run.
posted by stephen terry (Guest) - Thursday 19th January 2017, 2:49 AM
 
We certainly will need a biggish squad for that promotion push! Remember floyde aike and kebano have gone to the african nations. When they come back,these guys will need 2 or 3 weeks off to recharge their batteries. Maybe we also pick up 1 or 2 injuries? Our season can go up or pear shaped depending on a few factors.It wouldn't do us any harm to get another striker on board,especially that young chap from liege? at 2 1/2 million. Slavisa is economically clever if we get this young guy in at that price,and warming the bench when guys like martin are active,won't do these extra guys any harm.We all know that if we get to the prem,a few of our guys will have to go.I would go for some young players like the leige guy over nugent all day long,because there is always improvement to come potentially.

Really pleased to hear that Piazon is with us until the end of the season. Think that along with Cairney and Johansen he really helps the mid-field to tick. Can honestly say I would not want to lose anyone at this time and risk upsetting the balance that SJ has built. Every player is making a really contribution, couldn't have said that over the past few years.This surely must be the best group of players we have had since Woy's time, if not further back. Anyway, credit to manager, squad and humble supporters for sticking with it. After the last couple of matches truly believe we can make it this season. Assuming no bad breaks, we definitely have the quality plus, now, the work ethic and commitment to go all the way. Bit of support from us...job done:))

Dave Kidd (a Fuham supporter)writing in the Sun said how easy folk forget the players who hold clubs to ransom,he was at the cottage and said not a murmur was heard from any one, like wise if payet played again for hammers nothing would be heard such is the state of the game, the players hold all the aces.He also stated that the old Fulham song sang by opposition fans !have you brought your butler with you! simply means that we dont make waves we just smile and get on with it ,unlike millwall, as for the song, new one on me.So why did no one boo or hiss? any one know? having read most would have sent him to Tyburn gallows prior to the game.
Replies
Well Dave Kidd must be deaf because when they called out the team, there was a few boos when CM was named. Don't see the point in booing as he's in the team that Slavisa has picked, and I am 100% behind the manager. We have the best crop of players playing as a team with confidence growing with every game. Why would you want to boo that. Dave Kidd sounds like a buffoon. But he does write for the Sun. Turned out Bis' , Chris Martin was possibly man of the match.

Even though that bloke has made it clear he's a money grabber who doesn't want to play for us. Yeah I can see the realiy in that one.

as much as a £20m offer might turn heads, all I have seen is Tom Cairney giving more interviews on what lies ahead for the rest of the season. If that does not tell you where we are going on this, I am not sure what does.
Replies
From Shoot. Probably nonsense but....

Newcastle haven’t given up hope of signing Tom Cairney despite being quoted £20m for the midfielder.

According to a report in The Chronicle Rafa Benitez remains hopeful that a deal can be agreed in the final fortnight of the transfer window.

The Newcastle boss has identified central midfield as one of the key areas to strengthen with Fulham man Cairney high on his wanted list.

Benitez made enquiries about Everton duo Tom Cleverley and James McCarthy but was given no encouragement with Cleverley moving on loan to Watford and McCarthy not prepared to go outside of the Premier League.

Cairney is aware of Newcastle’s interest and would be favourable to a move without wishing to push for a move Payet style!

Fulham paid Blackburn £3m for the 25-year-old in 2015 and face a game of poker between now and the end of the transfer window with Aston Villa also keen on Cairney.

Half the fun of the transfer window is reading who might be going where, and who is going nowhere. Just read that City would like to have Messi in their team ( who wouldn't) but it ain't going to happen - Be patient dear boys all will soon be revealed,!!

When are the board of FFC going to realise that they owe some loyalty to the fans, which they expect of us to the club. I have supported FFC since 1962 and have been through the good and the bad days. Over the past few years we have had nothing to cheer but turned up regularly when finances would allow only to leave games depressed at how far FFC had gone backwards and having to put up with excuses from all and sundry as to the reasons why. At last we have a decent manager (or should be give him the bloody job) and a team playing attractive football at last. Now with real chances of making the playoffs all we hear is that our best players are likely to leave in the current transfer window. The chaiman should make a statement that fans are not there just to make up the numbers and that nobody is leaving. Please take the uncertainty away now which affects fans and players alike. We are playing the most attractive football in the championship. Don't ruin the work done so far this season

Mate, since 1962 we have had a lot worse than this. You stuck through Ernie Clay, us leaving the cottage, Div 4, Liverpool beating us something like 7-1, useless Joel and us not even trying away from home, the mad German and relegation and bottom of the Championship, nice but not a manager Kit, greedy RM and barn door dembele, hopeless defending and shocking keeper in track suit pants. Now we are the in form team, playing the best football in years, the team NO wants to play and your having a moan. Maybe, just maybe mate it's you and your outlook and not the club, life is on the up. It will be a rocky road at times we are good right now and my advice is enjoy this cos nothing lasts

posted by MST (Moderator) - Tuesday 17th January 2017, 12:37 PM
 
I dunno, I cant really complain about giving something back, Season ticket prices have been frozen since relegation and im pretty sure that if we did get promoted this year as a reward for our loyalty they would stay the same for the 1st season back in the Prem. My boys both get run outs as ball boys as part of season ticket deal. The only complaint could be having to pay for highlights now and maybe some free travel to away games that are midweek could be offered but in the whole I think the club is being run about as well as it has been since Al Fayed sold up.

On the pitch its the best brand of football we have had for ages, I actually get excited now that I am walking to a game and no matter who we are playing I think we can win. The squads the best its been since Woy moved to Liverpool, some young talent coming through and a manager who has taken his time to assess what he had, add some players to it and stayed patient with his brand of football even though it cost us points in its early days, the better we play the more the big clubs will come in for our players, Cairney is premier lge class so if we cant offer him that then I wont begrudge him going, just as long as its a deal which benefits us, £20m is the asking price, pay up or shut up, that should be the stance of a club with a billionaire owner!

Read today that Benitez is looking to buy TC even though £20m is FFC's price. While I appreciate it's a business, if TC goes our chances of returning to the EPL (together with the riches to be had there) would be diminished. In other words, if FFC sell him I think it's a short-sighted decision and Khan would be showing a lack of ambition for the club. And then Jok would go, IMO.

Sometimes you have to strike while the iron is hot..

Remember last January, Ighalo from Watford was banging them in left right and centre and Watford reportedly turned down £30m+ from a Chinese club...

Fast forward to this January and they probably couldn't give him away on loan!!

I don't doubt Cairney's class and ability, he is my favourite player at Fulham, he makes the team tick, he is a delight to watch but every player has a price..

The question is will Cairney keep up the form of a £20m+ player or will he dip. Is this the optimum time to sell him??

I say no but like I said every player has a peak price and I think Cairneys is right now.

Whats your best memory of us playing at QPR, and I mean against them not when we were their lodgers........ Worst is when we lost on that crap plastic pitch and then went on the disastrous run when Malcolm MacDonald was manager and we had about 5.000 in the away end, I think Tony Sealy scored for them, I am sure he also played for us too at some stage........ that was a mob and a half..... Best still thinking........ COYW's

This season's game at home has to be up there with the worse.

Martin missing an open goal, followed by two penalty misses and losing the game we dominated throughout. Can't remember a worse experience against them and I've been to very many as my ol' dad used to support them.

Apart from the thrashings we have given the ha has in recent years, enjoyed kicking there asses in the Stevenage road stand, but the stand out moment was the Jimmy Conway block buster at Rangers in the cup, and then beating them back at the cottage in the replay.

Used my two mates for a tenner ticket for the Barnsley game and both mates were impressed. The game was impressive, the score was nearly impressive and the team were defiantly impressive. Play like that every game until the end of the season and we will defiantly be promoted. Both mates are coming back for the Wigan game. IMPRESSIVE OR WHAT. COYW.

I'm moved here in London from Italy in October and I choose to support Fulham because now I live in Fulham. Craven Cottage is already my home and I fell completely in love with this team. Next Saturday I'm going to see the match at Loftus road and it would be great if you guys can tell me how are you going to go there. There is any place where we'll meet to go there all together?

Follow this board this week , and you will some Fulham meeting pubs , either in Hammersmith or Shepherds Bush area . It is one of the few games we have where there is a high level tension between the two sets of fans , so it is better you travel near the ground in a group, especially if you are wearing colours . In reality most of the tension is verbal rather than physical , but Rangers fans will look out from stray Fulham both going to and from round . Atmosphere in the ground can be partisan , from both sides , which makes winning , even by a scrappy own goal , all the more enjoyable .

Did anyone else hear Gentlemen Jim classic retort regarding Scott Malone on Saturday? Alledgely Cardiff city fans were not surprised that he was not playing in the FA cup tie, assuming he was dropped. Jim then quipped that Millway fans were suggesting he was not good enough to get into their team, to which Jim commented " I was really surprised to hear this because I'm too good for Millwall !"

The boss has spoken,and the last word on chris martin,is that he is with us until the end of the season! Lets all move on from this and just enjoy our football now.There is a lot to enjoy at the moment,and fulhams future looks good! I reckon Slavisa will make some nice moves in the transfer market,but he will leave it late. Slav likes to take his time in these matters.He did show an interest in bringing another striker on board along with a midfielder and a defender? i think?. I am looking forward to our next few games, we had a few results going good for us with the likes of villa,brighton and co dropping points.Let us all enjoy our football now,and i am rooting for a chris martin hat trick some time soon.....

That is when our chairmen on the board will be tested on a bigger transfer budget.The way newcastle are going,they will be spending 60/70 million on players before they get to the prem.

I really enjoyed yesterday's match, and although in the end we won quite comfortably, it wasn't really a one sided game, in the first half, and we had to be on our toes to win. I am not being a downer, but I have a horrible feeling that we will never make a top 6 place this season, as we have let far too many points slip away already, and we don't seem to be able to close that gap, between us and the top 6. Looking at the fixtures of the teams above us, they all appear on paper anyway, to have far easier run ins, plus the last thing that we want is a cup run.

Well done lads good win and knocked another promo team side ways,now we have to win the next 3 games to be in with a shout,9 point could put us in play offs not easy but do able.The game in hand is a must win to pull Reading back,what does concern me is after having 63 % of play we were only 1 up half time, it takes a second to score a goal and if they had scored after half time we would then have defend more an so stop our flow , we should be at least 3 three goals up with the possession we had in the first half, Brighton proved that even having 68% possession lost 2-0 why ? no killer instinct at that time ,so easy done ,pretty football is nice but promo come by scoring goals and killing games of.We do need more goals it could come down to the wire in May ,and yes I know we are about 3-4 top scorers but need more.Should I clear this with MST? nope its sunday.PS had one of my posts in the I newspaper this week gone so fame at last ,top that .

Interesting fact on Martin ,when he came to FFC he went from 14,000 grand to 17,000,then his agent asked for 28,000 ffc said no and he stopped playing ,so FFC tried to sell back to Derby, but wanted to much so they got Nugent instead, FFc said no to 28 grand and so the problem seems to have gone away.

The question is not why Derby wanted Martin back, but why they loaned him out in the first place. The Derby owner Mel Morris must be wondering who had the bright idea to lend their promotion rivals Fulham the striker they obviously badly needed, and then risk legal action for enticing him to break the loan deal. This weekend's results have been at least some justice, but Mr Khan ought to consider legal action. Derby’s behaviour has undoubtedly had an impact on the results during Martin's 'strike', and perhaps the eventual outcome in the race for promotion.
Replies
I'm not sure what legal action could be taken actually. Martin is Derby's player; presumably they can talk to him when and over what they choose. It seems like the whole episode is over and to be fair to Martin, he had a blinder yesterday and seemed to have no issue with his team mates. Personally, I'm moving on now and will get behind Martin and the team.

I agree that its often better to move on, but someone needs to be taught a lesson that all agents and clubs will see. it must be clear that Derby (presumably through Martin’s agent) had indicated to Martin that they had a place for him at Derby right now. Martin wouldn’t have risked what he did without that assurance. He was ‘tapped up’ – an expression I know that is usually acquainted not with loans with but more when players are clearly registered with other clubs. It depends on the terms of the loan deal - I imagine that loan contracts often have provision for the recall of players, but clearly that wasn’t the case in Martin’s deal. ‘Article 14(c)of the FIFA Players’ Agents Regulations states that a licensed player’s agent must never approach a player who is under approach a player who is under contract with a club with the aim of persuading him to terminate his contract prematurely or to flout the rights and duties stipulated in that contract. This clearly shows that an agent who sets up meetings in this manner will clearly be in breach of the regulations which he must adhere to in his role as a football agent.’ see http://www.inbrief.co.uk/football-law/football-player-under-contract-approach-clubs/

Yes, I understand that Pearson was Derby manager at the time when the deal was done, but more than one set of Derby fingerprints must be on that deal.
posted by peterjeremy - Sunday 15th January 2017, 2:43 PM
 
Martin is a Derby player. They pay his salary. We pay them a loan fee. They employ him and so can speak to their employer as and when they like. That's it. You can't tap up your own employee. This is the downside of a loan and it's not the first time we have improved a loanee.
posted by Phil (Guest) - Sunday 15th January 2017, 10:44 PM
 
Have I got it wrong about a loan deal ? Surly any team can call back there player if they need him or they suddenly get a load of injuries or like in the case of Ake at Chelsea has a brilliant 6 months for Bournemouth and they need a central defender so the recall him ? maybe there is a difference in Martin's deal as it is a season long deal, meaning that the parent club under no circumstances can recall them but is that the case ? you hear it all the time a player is recalled because the parent club needs them or the player is sent back because they are injured or just not working out.I remember last year Man utd had 2 of there goalkeepers injured and recalled a goalkeeper who was on loan or maybe it is just that that contract was different to Martin's.
posted by Tezza - Monday 16th January 2017, 12:43 PM
 
Think the difference was Fulham paid a loan fee for the season and all parties agreed a contract to this effect.Could only be ended if all parties agree which Fulham did not. Not the normal recallable loan or a transfer but somewhere in between which in hindsight is not a very satisfactory arrangement.
posted by Camberley Dave (Guest) - Monday 16th January 2017, 2:44 PM
 
The assumption in this case about a loan deal that could not be cancelled and the player recalled to the first club must be correct in the case of Chris Martin. As usual, if the parties all agree to a lawful contract, then terms can differ contract to contract but remain binding. It may be that Chris Martin can talk to the club that holds his registration, Derby, but that would be about terms that would apply at the end of his loan. Why did he insist now on returning early? Could it be that someone had plans to renege on the the terms of the loan?

Despite Chris Martin's return to the side and performance today *1 goal 1 assist* i still feel we need a striker, the problem is we seem to not be making any movement in the market. Lansbury left bansley to sheff wendsday and Rhodes seems set to join Villa, so maybe that frees up Mccormacl to move back? But does he suit our current system. He used to drop far back into the midfield under symons cause we couldnt create anything, now we can but we need someone to stay ulfront, make runs and pressure and then actually finish. A striker is a must whether martin stays or goes IMO, BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT BUSINESS WE CAN DO IS TIE CAIRNY AND SLAV DOWN this window

Chris, If you really want to play in the premeirship,then stay on board with us at fulham. Please do not do a 'Ross Mcormack' and jump ship to 'Derby.. Ross saw stars in their eyes'and got to thinking that aston villa was a better option along with the money. Aston Villa did have a decent chairman at one time by the name of 'Doug Ellis'and he was decent,but there is no doug ellis now. Derby should have gone up back to the prem a couple of seasons ago,but they didn't,thanks to a bobby zamora killer goal in the play-offs. The present derby side is not has good as the past derby side,there are too many teams that are on par with each other looking at the top 10 and a few below. Stick with Slavisa and he will get us that promotion everyone wants. That was a great penalty chris' and i admit that your services were greatly missed a few games ago. Our fan base down here at fulham are the nicest people in the world,and we don't bare grudges,we just want goals,and you fit into our system.So forget the ''WHALLY WITH THE BROLLY' STAY ON BOARD WITH FULHAM,AND PARTY WITH MISTLETOE AND HOLLY!!!

Maybe if Chris Martin hadn't chucked his toys out the pram , we could have beat Brighton. We were probably a striker short of 3 points. I don't care if he never puts the black & white on again
Replies
In principal I agree but the reality is that Fulham are a stronger side with him playing. Does it sit well ? No, but I do not want it to be detrimental to Fulham's progress and the fact SJ appears to have welcomed him back into the fold suggests he is committed to the cause. It will be interesting to see the crowd reaction tomorrow, assuming he plays. A statement from him wrapped as an apology may not go a miss though. Then we put it to bed and concentrate on the rest of the season

Ok Geezer. Just say last game of the season and Martin is one on one with the keeper. Now he knows that if he scores Fulham knock Derby out of the playoff spot but if he misses Derby get the sixth spot. Let's face it he ain't gonna sign for us now is he. Does he score and get another season in the championship or does he put it wide and get the chance to play premier league football. He'll put it wide I think.

Been thinking about so called super league that is coming at some time,will football then go back to grass roots,?when its sorted over half the prem league will be mixed I assume with top half of championship so most clubs will have much the same attendances,which in turn means less money coming in no abc matches most same price, so less endorsements ,no more Skye dosh so clubs cant pay top wack any more ,so players cant hold clubs to ransom. Or there agents,so what then happens to the club that finishes bottom in super div?, if its Italian who takes its place? another Italian club?.Makes for interesting discussion.

I for one, am delighted that Chris Martin will play for us again tomorrow. Let's face it, we don't know the full facts about this dispute, if in fact there ever was a dispute, between Chris and our club. The media do tend to blow things out of proportion, and until we are told the truth about the story it is a pure guessing game. If JS says that he is going to give 100% for Fulham, then I am going to believe him. If he scores tomorrow against Barnsley, all will be forgiven with immediate effect COYW

DMK I see your point about it not being possible to tap up your own player,but there is a moral issue concerning mclaren here. Steve Mclaren does not seem to have any respect for Slavisa,and i think slav knows this now. If you look at the loan deal between arsenal and bournmouth,Wengar has stated that he regrets loaning out wiltshire,but wengar is a true gentleman!He would not do a sly thing like talking wiltshire back to arsenal.Wiltshire will stay at bournmouth until his loan deal comes to an end,and that is the way how it should be! Mclaren might have been the england manager at one time,but i don't think that he is a better manager than our slavisa. Mclaren didn't look good at newcastle,and his current derby side is no way better than fulham. Slavisa know a lot more tactically and with patience,he will build us a squad capable of holding their own back in the premeirship.Slavisa is a wanted man now,and we at fulham need to tie him down to along contract before we lose him.

I think west ham have a much trickier situation. We can be as stubborn as we like for the cost of 1m. West ham with a 29 year old player on 125k and worth maybe 30m - hence Payat will win the battle for sure. Martin is definitely not as intelligent if he if thought Fulham would give a sh&t over 1m.

Lewis Grabband from Norwich City would be a good striker to have, he performed well when at AFC Bournemouth in the Championship. Selling Tom Crainey to Aston Villa even for £20 million would be stupid stupid stupid. And no deal on any swap plus cash to bring back Ross McCromack to the Cottage. He made his mind up about us long ago and I hope he enjoys life in Villa reserves!

not sure who will play up-front tomorrow? Aluko is great on the ball and at the wing but never a natural striker. Smith ran out of legs last week. Time to give Woodrow another run while we are searching for a striker? Thought he was going to Ipswich but that deal looks to have gone sour.
Replies
Please no - Woodrow is just not good enough at this level. Aluko struggles to put the ball in the net I know but the rest of his game brings loads to the team - running off the ball, taking players on (and beating them), defending from the front, his positional sense, etc. Woodrow is not a patch on that side of Aluko's game.
posted by MST (Moderator) - Friday 13th January 2017, 11:19 AM
 
The current way we are playing we don't need a striker, the front three of Piazon, Aluko are very intelligent players, neither of them plays right up front but they are dragging defenders all over the place allowing Johanson, Fredericks and co the space to go and play in.

We do need a target man who can score us 10 goals in 20 games for rest of season but for the 1st time since Hodgson left we have a manager who is tactically clever enough to get the best out of the 11 he has available.

I wonder if Fredericks will continue at Right Wing tmrw, I hope he does, he is a major weapon going forward Odoi should be in the team as well as he is a decent defender.

I would at least like to see him as sub as he gives us different options .
