Young men in shadows crawl through the thicket of life, screaming in pain, thorns in their skin again. beauty through the bushes, on the other side is love, softly spoken, is the poem of the dove: fly away, fly away, fly away. Craving Craven, yet not cowards these men, singing loud from the tier above: fly away, fly away, fly away. Through the weeds and the trees, the white dove is vaguely in sight, weary eyed they pull towards the light, through the threshold of Albion, a fluttering noise is nearby, too late, the dove is in the sky. Fly away, fly away, fly away.

I wonder if the club have learnt from the harsh lesson we got losing Dembele for peanuts this week. There are two or three youngsters training with 1st team Sessegnon is very highly rated, anyone wanna bet a fiver he breaks into 1st team this season, we all see he is the next big prospect and then about Jan\Feb we find out he isn't tied down to a long term contact and cam leave for free next Summer... No other business in any walk of life would be so inept as the people running ours
Replies
Unfortunately if like Roberts & Dembele they choose not to sign LONG contract extensions there is nothing FFC can do about it.

Only one person to blame for this situation and that is Bosman!!

Whilst I understand doing what a manager wants, why play someone who doesn't really give a care about the club. Dembele didn't want to be here, which was clear, thought he was better than he was so was never going to give 100%. I would much have preferred that we played Smith or someone who wanted to play for FFC.

I haven't renewed my season ticket. Not sure I can be arsed, but will just pay £25 membership, and cherry pick a handful of games over the season. People come on this site and knock folks like me with their badge kissing braggery about loyalty, and being FFC through and through. Well, it's bollocks. This club isn't investing, there's no ambition. Unlike the old days when Saturday football was the best show in town, the word's changed, there's better things to do on a Saturday afternoon than watch more of the same crap this season.And infinitely better ways of spending £500 on a FFC season ticket - like buying a season ticket for AFC Wimbledon instead.
Replies
You can get a ST ticket for £299 which works out at £13 a game which is great value because you can still cherry pick and pay less that £25 a ticket!

No one in the championship has made any transfers worth any remark. Biggest is probably Burn going to Wigan and Gayle having a medical at Newcastle. The rest are one or two squad signings from Scotland and some players renewing contracts. Blackburn have done most ,but of no interest to us. The market won't pick up until players and their agents wait to the last minute to get the best deals. It's frustrating , I know, but we have to be patient. Come on fellow Fulham fans, keep the faith. BELIEVE. COYW.

"When we played them (Fulham), we knew they were a good club at home once, but they weren't that anymore. We knew we could get at them. We knew we had to push the wings because their full backs were weak. There was something said though, in the dressing rooms, you can hear them because their ground's rooms are so small. What their manager said at half time (Kit Symons) was absurd. It was ridiculous. But it summed their club up perfectly. He said, 'We want to buy Cardiff City on a permanent loan deal.' I couldn't believe it. But it sounded like it was a done dealings."

Wonder how much time the regulars on here will give FFC this season , each season its!give then 4 games, and !no have to give then till end of september, then end of the year xmas , if we are in bother then we start to worry.Never alters and so far there all wrong except the one who says 4 games, after that its down hill all the way.Looking at the transfer gossip only over seas players seem to be wanted, absurd money quoted, and not a home grow player in site.Do we really have no home grown talent thats for sale?.

I can write the story for the next 2months already...

Early July - FFC announces a couple of positive signings. The fans are happier..

Mid July - FFC announces a few more signings including some really good potentials and a big hitter (premier league player). The fans can see the green shoots.

Late July - FFC confirms neither Ross or Cairney are going anywhere! The fans are beginning to think play-off is a possibility.

Early Aug - FFC beats crystal palace and only marginally failed to beat Newcastle. The fans are thinking of an automatic promotion. Rigg is a hero.

Mid Sept - despite a draw and a win in the first two games, club went through the next 6 games without winning and now mid-table. The fans will be calling for Janko's head!


I think you are familiar the rest of the story...
Replies
Rigg and tmac jump for joy knowing they got away with it again. They congratulate each other by meeting in the showers after hours, to wash each others crytal balls and play hide the soap...... & to top it off Djimi Traore gets fans player of the season and Bernard manning comes in as manager....

I destroyed my season ticket during last season, as I was disgusted with the way our club is being run, and our continual fight against relegation, but I fully intended to renew again for this coming season, but I decided to hold on, even if it cost me more money, to see how many new signings would be made. To say that I am fuming, at the moment with no likely signings on the horizon, is an understatement. We are only a matter of weeks away from the new season, other clubs are signing players, right left and centre, but at Fulham. Nothing. There is no question in my mind, that we will be relegated next season, and I don't want to be part of it. I love my football, and I will be going to see a team play every Saturday afternoon, but it will not be at Fulham, but likely to be at a club in the Championship, who shows a lot more ambition than we do. This is a very sad time, but I have had enough.

YOU ARE CORRECT AND I FULLY SUPPORT YOUR ATTITUDE. This business (football) is all about confidence and so far the Management en-bloc has showned no sign of confidence in the future of Fulham FC, but that may be a part of the long term plan, for Mr Kahn has no interest in England, London SW1 or indeed Fulham beyond the development of the ground as explained to him by Mr Al Fayed, why else would he have bought FFC when he could have bought Arsenal FC (we are told!).
posted by Rich of Cambridge (Guest) - Thursday 30th June 2016, 9:44 AM
 
I too are very disappointed in the progress made on transfers...but even more disappointing that the club have not issued any news or statements. I don't expect them to tell the world who they are targeting or positions they are looking to fill but at least to reconfirm discussions are happening and funding if required to get the players they want is available.

I am not sure there's much transfers elsewhere either...maybe real business only starts from July 1st when many players contracts are finished or trigger for bonus payments, etc. So I will wait until end of July to make a judgment call if Fulham have messed up the summer transfer again!!

Daniel Kimberley, I never said that I would give up supporting Fulham, and I will still be a fan forever, and I will not be supporting any other team, but Fulham, whoever I might be watching. I am sure that I will be more relaxed watching just a Championship match, and not worrying about the result for 90 minutes. Saying that of course I will constantly be checking the latest score from the game that Fulham are involved in, so my afternoons or evenings will still be full of ups and downs. I just feel, like others, we have been very badly let down, by Mr Khan and his cohorts(Not including J S) and I cannot show that I am on their side by still going to Craven Cottage.
posted by A C (Guest) - Thursday 30th June 2016, 10:52 AM
 
there are an increasing swell of supporters feeling like AC, there is absolutely no doubt our club has been poorly managed since Khan arrived. Supporters will protest in their own way but unfortunately without unity there will be little change. As a bunch of supporters we have to accept we are extremely lame and late in showing our disgust. That's just Fulham. There is also no doubt we will not be ready for the new season with a fully integrated squad that is raring to go. The first ten games will be crucial and support will quickly ebb if we show little fight and performance in those games...just to add and I know it is the same old record, the club will not move on in a football capacity until there is a change at the top Rigg and Mackintosh have been absolute failures and holding on to their jobs is frustrating, annoying and completely against the ethos of good business acumen. Like many I fear for the club's performance next season, there have been no shoots of positivity coming from the club and that is deeply disappointing. We are all sleepwalking into the abyss.
posted by Riverside (Guest) - Thursday 30th June 2016, 11:30 AM
 
While I have only been a season ticket holder for about 20 years I have been coming to Craven Cottage since 1958. I'm not a fair weather supporter as numerous mid-winter and mid- week away matches to such delights as Grimsby Town will show but enough is enough. Against my better judgment I renewed my season ticket last season and that of my son but due to a broken leg and ankle was unable to go to many matches. Those I watched were perhaps the worst performances of any Fulham side I've ever seen.Even during the season when at one stage we were 91st in the entire league at least they side though lacking in talent had some degree of heart and pride. Apart from one or two players the whole squad needs replacing but that's not going to happen. As most people will agree the problem starts at the top and until those t....pots Rigg and McCintosh are given the boot nothing will change and matters will only get worse. I can't understand why Khan keeps them on as a self made Billionaire can't be that stupid . Is there a reason for this? I know people dismiss the conspiracy theory of redevelopment at the cottage and rely on the fact that its subject to Listed Building status but that's only the Stevenage frontage.If the club located a site in the Borough to provide social housing then there would be a very real chance of Planning Permission being granted for Luxury apartments on the site.People seem to forget that he site is the most expensive football site in the league and that includes Stamford Bridge so its a very attractive proposition to non-resident owners such as Khan. This could explain why he's allowing Rigg and McCintost to run the club into the ground. I hope that I'm wrong but until they depart I will not be coming back to the Cottage which breaks my heart as I'm Fulham through and through

Caution on transferes folks!Don't you guys realise that if 'slavisia' lets the cat out of the bag on who he wants to sign before the euro's is over then fulham are stuffed!!! You got to think and know that the finance of newcastle will be huge.If benitez gets a whiff of a decent player that the prem boys have overlooked,he will offer bigger money than fulham.There are a lot of decent managers in the championship who will steal any of fulhams targets if they get a sniff!!! Aston villa with the combination of demateo,and clark will know potential english and foreign targets.I cannot stress enough how difficult it will be for fulham to snagg all their transfere targets from under the noses of our competitors!!! There will be a nice pot of players wanting contracts in england,but the difficulty will be getting them to sign on the dotted line.Forest have a decent manager now and they might attract a few players who will be sold the brian clough history ect.I don't blame slavisia for keeping his transfere targets under wraps for now.GUYS'BE PATIENT!!!!!!

Unless as a club we are feeling suicidal and fancy a return to the lower leagues I am sure that there must be a lot of hard work going on in the background. Owen is quite right patience is required, at this point speculation and transfer rumours can only lead to competitors muscling in and attempting to scupper proposed deals for their own ends. It is glaringly obvious that we need a complete re-vamp on the playing front and the season is edging ever nearer. Hopefully deals are nearing completion as we speak and perhaps some may be all but completed and awaiting the end of the Euros. Due to the farce of the last four years I can understand why the trust has all but evaporated, this really is our last chance to put it right if the dreaded drop is to be avoided. If the club truly cannot see or are underestimating the dangers then we are going to be in deep trouble. Surely if this is the case Jokanovic would have walked by now, he has shown in the past that he will not put up with too much BS.

I think there might be 2-3 players from that welsh squad worth looking at guys? Is it davis? the one that runs at people?he might be worth a look? and that mix race guy with no current club? Maybehim who broke his leg and coleman picked him?He can pass a ball properly.Seriously folks''i just think that these euro's are a golden cv ticket for a lot of players to showcase their talent.I also think that 'slavisia'is being canny,and he might possibly identified 2-3 half decent players for fulham.It is a patient wait simply because,if 'slavisia' shows his intent for signing certain players too early,then everybody will jump in and push prices up! Guys'we must be patient!There will be more than a few overseas players wanting a contract in the premier league,and if not the premier maybe the championship.Don't forget we have newcastle up first in the championship,and trust me'benitez is crafty.If he gets a sniff or word of a half decent player who gets overlooked from the prem boys,he will jump in no problem,and newcastle will have the mighty bulk of the prem money.You have got the likes of forest'in the mix and they have a half decent manager also.Trust slavisia'this transfer window won't be easy!!!

Do you really think if there was a fulham target list, premier league clubs and Newcastle would be interested?? The days of us being in the same market as them are well gone. Instead, we need to watch out the likes of Mk dons, Brentford, Wigan, etc...

Unless as a club we are feeling suicidal and fancy a return to the lower leagues I am sure there is a lot of work going on in the background. Owen is right patience is required, speculation and transfer rumours can only lead to competitors trying to scupper deals for their own ends. It is glaringly obvious that we need a complete revamp on the playing front and the season is edging ever nearer. Hopefully deals are nearing completion as we speak and perhaps some may be all but completed and awaiting the end of the Euro 2016 tournament. If I am wrong and the club cannot see the dangers then we truly are going to find ourselves in deep trouble. Surely if this is the case Jokanovic would have walked by now, he does have a history of not putting up with too much nonsense

there should be a FIFA rule...just as the players need to be that nationality so should the manager. And for England to have a foreign manager is just indicative of how far our standards have fallen, can't see Germany or Brazil having a foreign manager. The FA (just like FIFA, UEFA, and EU) is a corrupt body of people who aren't performing because they are arrogant and incompetent ( and have been for far too long, embedded culture). And, because of the dilution of promoting English talent we now have find it challenging to find an English manager with the right experience and expertise...Football is indicative and allegorical to what is happening to our country. We need to take back our game from FIFA, we need the quota system on foreign players (like we used to have) and we need all foreign players to meet a standard criteria just as non EU players have to at the moment. The EU by its very nature was totally discriminative to the rest of the world, so lets treat everyone equally by ensuring every player satisfies the same criteria. Rant over...next England manager, the best of a bad bunch would be Hoddle with Southgate as coach. Otherwise I would like to see Bruce, Dyche or Allardyce.

Things will never change until the Premiership changes. Germany believes the bundesliga is there to supply the national team with players and manangers. The Premiership is there to make money.Until we see half the English team wanted by the the big teams in Europe like Barc/Real,Bayer,PSG or Italy they will never be good enough to win a national competion. Semi finals of the European Cup 4 teams 25 man squads how many English players ? 1 Joe Hart !!! England will not be world class without more better players and more top managers - There are only 3 English managers in the Prem Pardew,Allidice and Howe (and obviously no English managers managing abroad). It the old argument do you want the Permiership showing the best and good and average from abroad or do you want to see more English players being developed.

Agree with Tezz the football league sold its soul years ago. Mercenaries from around the globe use it to boost their finances alongside their careers. It is no longer the English league it has been hijacked and is purely a money making venture. It is hard to see how this can be changed with so many noses in the trough. The only people who give a toss about our national side are the much maligned supporters and it can only be a matter of time before we say enough is enough and refuse to take part in the ritual humiliation that is handed out at tournament level. The games administrators are more concerned with the earning powers of the Premier League and the riches that are associated with the Champions League. As for the players on the occasions that we actually qualify for a tournament they seem to regard it as a bit of a nuisance, a disturbance during their summer break when they would prefer to be relaxing prior to another allegedly arduous Premier League Campaign. It really doesn't matter who these idiots wheel out as the next sacrificial lamb/ manager. Until we get our house in order stop pandering to over rated foreign imports and actually concentrate full time on producing decent home grown talent we as a nation will continue to make up the numbers on the international scene. Those running the show should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves, it is no exaggeration to say that we are now the laughing stock of world football. Continue down this path and it won't be long before San Marino and Luxemburg start fancying their chances. This is meant as no dis respect to Iceland who are a very good well organised side. I am just appalled at our performances in this game and also the Slovakia game. The body language of the majority of the team seemed to say We really don't want to be here. The heart and the passion the sheer honour of playing for your country that is so evident in other national teams is simply non existent, this is a disgrace and many of our squad should be completely ashamed. There are obviously a few exceptions and they will know who they are. Roy Hodgson is an intelligent manager and a decent man, up until now well respected on the world scene, he has been let down badly by greedy administrators, feckless players and a system at home that is screaming out for change.

For Dembele... £500k... what are we doing as a club? Celtic must be laughing.
Replies
Dem is out of contract so legally, he can walk away except EUFA introduced a rule that because of his age, he should be compensated. However, why the EUFA rule is only 500k whilst the FA rule (players moving between English clubs) rule is based on the value of the player (eg Liverpool had to par c. 6m for Ings as decided by the FA Tribunal) I never understood!! Yes, CRAZY! This is why FFC had to sell Roberts last year to avoid losing him for 500k.

I think they should align the FA and EUFA rules and introduce a new rule of salary cap on young players where if they choose to move, it is not driven by money.

If Dembele thought for one moment FFC had a chance of going up or at least threaten situation might be different because I am sure FFC could compete with wages . The Club is in a mess Hutchinson and Burn gone we are left with Stearman and Ream both hopeless, Madl too small for centre half , no left back, Parker almost 37 years old, no wingers on the books its no surprise only 8000 season ticket renewals so far

Dembele was offered a good contract to stay but he wanted a new challenge so he's gone to play in the Jock Joke league to get into the Champions league (for a couple of games)
no loyalty in football unlike VDS when he left to join a big club. I hope he enjoys playing at Inverness Cali on a cold December evening because if he thought it was cold enough at the cottage to wear gloves then he will most likely have to carry a hot water bottle up there

Do we have any eufa coaching badge experts here?? What is the purpose and what do they teach you that an experienced footballer (eg Murphy, Gerrards, etc) would need to manage a club at top level?? I understand the need for some coaching know-how at grass root level for health and safety and development, but at elite level why ex players such as lampard and soon terry need to learn to manage a bunch of premier league players?? Please clarify!!

Badges dont improve you as a coach, they just tick a box, I took my level 2 badge a few years back, failed the exam, told I was on a journey but not quite ready yet, I retook the exam 10 days later and passed with flying colours so that journey didn't take long.

Thanks Adam! I was convinced is a tick in a box exercise - but why? What are the underlying reasons and rational behind it?? What does a player like Gerrard needs to know, that he doesn't know already to manage a premier league team!! This is a big issue for English national team because we have many great proven football leaders (Gerrard, Terry) but we can't hire them and given their wealth, they see no incentive to spend 2years in a classroom!

With so many players leaving the club and just over 5 weeks until the start of the new season. The Owners have expressed an expectation of Promotion or play offs at very least. So just how much money will be spent and on how many quality players are the club going to buy. Parker has been a good servant to the club but you can't expect him to play every match. McCormack assuming that he is still with us needs a partner. Defense need I say more, we need a lot. PLUS we need COVER. Luckily we have only got NEWCASTLE for the first game.

doesn't seem much team spirit at our club, Amorebieta throwing his toys around stating (Sky sources) that he won't play for the club again. Joka needs to get strict (all this should have been done at the end of last season) and get rid of these elements. I don't think (don't know for sure) that McCormack is a good egg around the club, he just gives off this poor vibe, seems to have a miserable and dour personality - perhaps we should offload and get players who actually want to be at the club, there must be a few???

We are seen as being a joke nation , potentially run by a clown . Last night the defeat against Iceland made the UK even more of a laughing stock . Good club players who totally froze on the big stage . Kane for example was abject , constantly hitting balls high and wide . Roy did a great job for us , but he performs best with limited resources . Give him a big " club " with lots of options and he doesnt have a clue . We could have been there until December and he still would not know which team or system .His limitations were and are known , and to expect anything else was always unrealistic . With respect , small teams like Wales and Iceland have the advantage in that the core of the team almost picks itself , so you just tweak a bit game by game , and you built spirit . Watching England last night was even worse than Fulham after yet another management change , totally inept .

Totally agree that England's performances against Slovakia and Iceland were pitiful but I think we should respect the efforts of our opposition particularly Iceland. They proved they were no mugs and cannot be held responsible for the shambles that they had to beat. Will be watching their progress with great interest but the quarter final against France will probably be the end of the road.

Now being suggested Roy " lost " the dressing room. Never used to hear that when Sir Alec ruled the roost - though guess international players know " all the answers"

Reports also that the loch ness mobster was spotted in the Thames and flying pigs were filed over the Cottage.... We will LOOK at Gayle then miss out when somebody actually makes a bid for him

Dread to think what the score would have been if we had been playing Sainsbury's !

Agree 100% Fred and the most horrifying thing about England is how much these guys are paid. Imagine spending money as a supporter to follow them!

Rooney earns enough in a week to pay all but 2 or 3 Iceland players for the whole year!! And they made the England players look like headless chicken! SCAREY!!

I feel bad enough walking through Bishops park after watching some of our lamentable performances. Might just be one or two disgruntled English fans arriving back to these shores

This site has always been at its best when discussing football maters ( preferably Fulham) but I'm sure most of us hope t see England do well so thoughts on the who the next coach should be- please discount Corbyn & Cameron !

Fred we need to look at the people that make the decisions. The ones that pick the new manager. They are the ones that need to fall on their swords. Its there fault. English managers have to work to certain rules that are so far out of date. Like Jimmy greaves said in his book the likes of himself and George best got very disillusioned with the game. It was being run by old boys with badges on their coats that had not got a clue about football what so ever and never ever be to a game of football in their lives. The whole system needs to be thrown in the air and started again other wise we will be in the same position again in a couple years time. Just like Fulham are doing at the the moment going no where fast.

I think 2016 is the year when we are reminded football is such a simple game that we have spent too many years over complicating with new tactics, formations and possession football!! Look at Leicester and Iceland. Both teams while playing slightly differently but fundamentally playing simple football and recognising possession percentage does not translate into results!!

I think England's results last night could well be the beginning of the end for the premier league hype!!
Replies
Agree with you all the way. Its putting that little white ball over that little white line. With out drawing little circles around players and how many miles they run. I hope neville does not get the England job.

woy's pre prepared resignation statement made him the laughing stock of the world. 'these Things happen" and 'They did what was asked of them". The guys totally lost any respect he got at Fulham.
