Where is he logic for bringing on Smith a striker so late for an effective midfielder like Ruiz.Then bringing on an out of form Rodeleiga for Woodrow. Causing only total confusion .Was this just you know who panicking?
Replies
I agree. 1st you bring on Rodellega who can't score, can't head a ball, doesn't shoot on target, has been injured, then you panic....

....Results of the "should Kit remain as Manager this season" survey I did on the other board:

Yes = 44%
No = 52%
Don't know 4%

Hardly conclusive but there it is....
Replies
To me that's 44% accept relegation.

No Steve, 44% see that things will get better and a top ten fifnish this season and at least play offs next season. Things will change starting at the Cottagee Friday.

I do not think we would have stayed in the Premiership. Look where we are now!...
20th In the Championship. I feel sorry for Mr khan he must be pulling his hair out.

Kit Symons states on the Website: FFC, he believes FFC is moving in the right direction. Does he mean downwards?.....

Sorry but is he having a laugh!...

How come Norwich FC who also went down with FFC last year will with good fortune return to the Premiership in one go?.. Next Year

They didn't have Khan and Magath simple as that

From what I was told from a very close source MAF sold the club to Mr Khan as he was assured the interests of FFC would be in safe hands. Mr Khan was that man.

Why do players keep telling us that they took a lot of posetives from each game they loose?. Can they explain ?because i have no idea what they are talking about,the latest is Matt Smith, every game is the same manager and players all use the phrase but nothing changes. There must be a school for pointless remarks to make after a match we loose, please Mr Hoddle start ringing door bells.

Yes Bishop, if you have managed a team then you would know why you have to take positives out of each game...... ie a few decades ago I ran a church youth team and there was ONLY one youth league about at the time made up of seasoned teams ie N.Greenford Utd, Viking Sports, Guinness, and when you are being thrashed each week even if it's the fact that the players turn up each week despite the fact that they're getting tonked 16-1, 12-0 13-0 and even making the back page Guiness 24-0 Trnity, withthe headlines 'Trinty not that Bad'you had to take positives out of games otherwise you would just give up...did we finsh bottom? NO a 3-0 victory last game of the season saw up jump one place dispite our GD was-123.
posted by Freddie Fulham (Guest) - Wednesday 04th March 2015, 4:51 PM
 
All this cobblers about work in progress , taking positives, going in the right direction. The simple fact is we were beaten AGAIN. How long do you need Symons?.If this is going in the right direction I would hate to see us going in the wrong one.

Harry, last time we played Watford we lost 5-0 and by all (independent) accounts we were unlucky not to come away with at least a draw. Against a side that could well go up...yes I think that's moving in the right direction. AND we WILL beat Bournmouth Friday.

I can also tell you we were 16/1 for relegation before yesterday and we are now 12/1 so William hill don't think we are improving.

I know there's no point in crying over spilt milk, by that I mean last years sacking of Rene Meulensteen, I still believe that if he had stayed that we would still be in the Premiership now. His last two games Man. Utd and Liverpool when most of us could see dispite the last minute penalty for liverpool we were sencing a change for th better. And I for one agree 100% with Rene saying that our board 'panicked' with his sacking. Why bring this up now? well dispite the fact of our 1-0 defeat last night and (even though I wasn't there I go by independent reports) ie press and BBC and by that I again feel we ARE TURNING THE CORNER. I am willing to stick my neck on the block and say we will beat Bournemouth. I do agree however that its taken far too long to change things due to inexperinece, but now we know Kit will be here (like it OR not) till the end of the season. I also think that a top ten nine spot is well within our grasp.

Yes Stocky, the defeat by The Blades was the worst game of the season........so what did you predit in the following matches v Man Utd, (away)...I thought we would be doing well to looose 3-0) who actually predited a 2-2 draw. and loosing to Liverpool with a last gasp Penalty. We would have stayed up may have even beaten Stoke and Place.

Great posts Freddie and I agree with most of your sentiments the disgraceful treatment of Rene Muelensteen in particular.
Not sure if we are turning that corner just yet but I am reasonably confident that we can stave off the dreaded drop.
Hopefully we will not panic in the summer, sensible investment required and some help for our inexperienced manager

There cant be one person on this sit that actually thought we could get back to back wins, was there ? yep there was ,we have no consistantsy what so ever, think back Forrest,Norwich and derby , after those games we were on our way, to were? after beating Derby it looked good but deep down most of us knew what would happen, . Brighton put it in prospective last night how good we were playing Derby. This squad is going no were, neither is the manager , we will continue to bluster our way along till season end hopefully avoiding relegation

One nil ten nil,still three point ,still same nondescript, comments from Kit, and i thought F-M was bland, should have had better results, was worth a point , when they scored first it was a body blow, he reads from F-M book of crap pros. Why, why, why, does it happen to us.

Does the money from parachute payments and transfers sales etc etc actually go into Fulham football club, often wondered,because we are a limited company and not part of Kahns money box.No doubt Kahn has many companies listed to him as did MAF, but FFc should seperate, therefor we should have a very large bank account,i wonder.

Football finances baffle me everyone seems to have a way to sidetrack rules of ffp to suit I/e. Hahas anounce debts went down from 64mill to 9 mill in there promotion year. !!!! Leicester lost nine mill in there promotion year ( incedentlty Rangers books are under scrutiny over this !!big boys seem to spend at will. Ffc can't spend apparantly because of ffp !!! Tbh can't see why as we cleared our books of playing staff last year. One big transfer in. !!! Don't believevfor a minute it was for amount stated !!! Any thoughts ????

Watford have won more games than any other club in the championship, so it was a big ask for us to get anything at Vicarage Rd. However this Friday's game is one which I feel we should at least get a point. Doesn't seem that long ago when we used to see off many of the top clubs in the land ( even a few from Euriope) Those were the days !!!!!!!!!
Replies
One way I see it is that when Al-F took over he wanted to be a winner and wanted the club to succeed. Khan is very different. He hasn't got any real love for the club, probably didn't even know we existed before we came up for sale, and to him we are a stepping stone into the country and a little side interest. His NFL team are bottom of the table as they were last season and he has already intimated we must be self sufficient. If we are ever going to get back to the dizzy heights we were once we need an owner who will invest and love the club. With him we may survive, hopefully, but thats going to be our limit.
posted by Steve (Guest) - Wednesday 04th March 2015, 9:36 AM
 



I totally agree
posted by Rob Clark (Guest) - Wednesday 04th March 2015, 9:37 AM
 
MAF, must take some of the blame for our predicament, as he could have looked deeper into who was going to buy the club. Surely Mr Khan and Kit will not be happy at the moment, and we will invest in new players in the summer. If they don't then it will be proved beyond all doubt, that Mr Khan has no interest in the club or it's potential. It was of course, no great surprise that we lost to Watford, but at least we improved on our 5-0 home defeat. By all accounts we were the far better team overall but still failed to find the net, which is very very frustrating. We have slipped another place in the table but we could shoot up, after Friday night, if we can see off Bournemouth, who have been struggling lately and only just scraped home against Wolves last night on a penalty. Once this game is over, we will have good run of fixtures, which should give us enough points to finish in the top 10. Anything less, will be a real disappointment.

Having beaten Derby, there is, understandably, a cheerier mood on this site, as we all breathe a collective sigh of relief that we are further from the bottom three. It is now more than likely we will survive the drop. However, just take a look at the table: it doesn't lie: nothing has changed. Khan is a dreadful owner, and has, and will continue to oversee the decline and fall of our great club.. Kit, a nicer man than Magath and Jol, is just as bad a manager

If Steve is correct in assumiing that Mr K is only using FFC as a stepping stone into this country then afraid we are in deep trouble. However he has stated that he wants to see our club back in the Premiership so let's give him a chance to prove his remark- This summer will provide the answer once and for all
posted by Fred (Guest) - Wednesday 04th March 2015, 11:14 AM
 
Al Fayed got as far as he could with the club. He like all of us got older and had no one in the family who wanted the responsibility of Fulham football club so therefore his interest disappeared. He did not care who took the club just his money back which he got. Khan is listed as being a multi billionaire who makes enough money in interest to buy Countries, governments and certainly Fulham football club without raising an eyebrow. Since he has taken over we get the occasional message apparently from him, but who knows, telling us whats going on and he has been seen at the ground on a handful of occasions normally when an NFL game is being played at Wembley. We have spent a few bob on players but nothing like the money that has come in from Parachute payments, TV rights or players being sold. We have no players left on overpaid wages and a lot of youngsters and Juniors. If anyone can show me where Khan has shown any real interest in our beloved club I am happy to listen but I have never known a less interested or involved owner of a club.
posted by Steve (Guest) - Wednesday 04th March 2015, 11:22 AM
 
Fred. Can you imagine the problems if Khan came out and said I don't really care if we rot in the lower divisions i just want to own a football club. Thats what press officers and a board are for to make things sound rosy. If he wants the best for the club then I'll take all this back, but we are in danger of becoming Portsmouth 2 and it was only real fans that saved them.

Watford fan in peace. If its any consolation I think you were one of the better sides we've played recently> If you had a Deeney or a Vydra up front you'd be in a healthier league position Good luck for the rest of the season - do us a favour and turn Bournemouth over on Friday

Steve I accept your thoughts regarding comments made by our owner, the point I was trying to make was that this summer will tell us all we need to know about his ambitions( if he has any ) for our club. We need a good experienced manager installed and a lot of his money spent on new players and who knows this time next year we may be heading back to join the big boys. On the other hand !!!!!!

What skills does Kit see of any use to Fulham FC in Mr Rodellega? I was not at the game but if one can rely in Gentleman Jim's commentary, then it was Matt Smith who gave us the chances that almost gave us a point. He must start with Ross on Friday, any other choice is madness.
Replies
Ill take the result. But not RODELLEGA.Must never ever put a white shirt on his back ever again
posted by GEEZER (Guest) - Wednesday 04th March 2015, 10:41 AM
 
Criticism of Rodellaga is over harsh,granted hes not the greatest striker but he cost us peanuts and I beleive will always put in a shift.
Having said that if we are going to continue with the high ball game then it is madness to select him in front of Smith and Woodrow.
I have seen many worse forwards at this club down the years, Hugo has a good eye for goal when the supply is right and it is wrong for so many so called supporters to use him as a scapegoat

Tonight will probably see Parker being rested, and this will leave us spineless. The result on Saturday was primarily down to 2 players, Parker and Ruiz. Parker is old, and Ruiz, who blows hot and cold at the best of times, will be away at the end of the season. We have no evidence that we have the scouting nous or commitment from Khan to rebuild the squad. Sorry to rain on your parade, but I really can't feel as optimistic as some on this board. The next two games could persuade me I'm wrong, and would love to have to eat my words, hat, or anything else thrown at me. Our manager is simply not up to getting us out of this mess, and either needs to get a strong number 2, or step aside for an experienced scrapper

if that is the way you want to look at it then that is your choice. I never said that everything was alright with the current position we are in but everyone is entitled to their opinion. The thing is i support the team - whichever one is selected. May not agree with it but fulham is the team i have supported since 1955 and will continue to do so. Unfortunately do not control the team selection. No everything is not alright but until we,the supporters ,pick the team we have no real choice.
posted by Dave g (Guest) - Tuesday 03rd March 2015, 8:22 PM
 
you are quite correct we are all entitled to our opinions that is why people come on here to complain because Kit and Khan couldnt care less what we think. Kit gets paid and Khan has enough for life. I can't stand what is happening to my team, who I have followed for almost as long as you, and that is why something needs to be done.
posted by Steve (Guest) - Tuesday 03rd March 2015, 8:39 PM
 
agree something needs to be done but who have we got at the club these days who will do anything? The chief executive, the directors ,the club secretary- i think not! Where do we go from here then? A real dilema and something we have no control over in the days of big finance. At least in 1987 when i put my money in the club everyone was pulling in the same direction and for the same cause. It was a united effort but unfortunately it is a different scenario now and it hurts like hell.

We have better players now than we did then- no disrespects morgs and jeff eckh- and if only the chairman gives some financial backing to the manager,whoever he is, the club will improve. We have experienced complete turmoil in the last 18 months which none of us have enjoyed. We just need to stick with it and if you cannot so be it

I'd love to agree with the positive posts after Saturdays good win but to be honest it is difficult. I can't understand why most of you who were decrying Kit before Saturday have now become his number one fans after one win. I was there Saturday as I am for all games and it was a hard fought and well deserved win however, Derby were not at the races (did you see what I did there) and we have been here before after beating Norwich and after beating Brum away and Wolves in the cup and and and so those of you who think Kit has had an epiphany moment reserve your good judgment until after the next three or four games. Personally I think nothing will change and if Rod is fit he will play as always - people always return to type and Kit is no different to any of us. I really hope we get something out of Watford - my heart says we will but my head says forget it!!
Replies
I'm not saying I have suddenlly become his No1 fan, all 'm saying is lets wait till the end of the Bournemouth game and see after the next two fixtures IF we have made progress, turned the corner...call it what you will. I don't see Kit going anywhere soon, so lets hope he's finally got it right, because there's noone else in line for the hotsit.

Yes, Saturday's win was very welcome, and it gives us high hopes of survival this season, but our bad luck is the way that the fixtures have fallen. Millwall(Away)Derby(Home)Watford(Away) and Bournemouth(Home)These 4 on the run, would be difficult for most teams, let alone Fulham. The most optimistic of us, if we are being honest, would have worked out before these matches, that we would be lucky on know form, to get 2 points out of the 12. We have already gained 4 points, so that is a better start then we thought, and if, and I say if, we get anything out of the next two games, then we will have done very well indeed. COYW

Hi Geezer, I dont see why we should loose if Hugo plays, as each player has said, it's a confidence thing and that has to go right throught the team, IF hugo is part of our squad then we need him to have the same conifedence as he had earlier on in the season it's no good just one or two having it its all or nothing.

Geezer, I really can't see Kit bringing Hugo back, even if he is fully fit. He should persevere with Woodrow, and maybe, bring in Matt Smith, who I understand, is now back with us. Put Hugo on the bench, and bring him on late if required. Mind you the way Dembele played when he came on, why not give him another chance. Could be a very interesting line up tonight. I know that we will expect the worst against Watford, but it is surprising how many teams lose or draw the home leg, when they have won away. Our pairing against Brighton is a prime example. So all is not lost, and I have a funny feeling that we will play much better against them tonight, than we did at home. Let's go for it, we have nothing to lose.

Not sure you are correct in assuming we are now " Kit fans" after Saturday's result , the fact is that he is and may well remain our manager for the foreseeable future, all we want is what's best for our club and feel that the next couple of games will tell us if we are at last going in the right direction, and a draw tonight would be a good result.

Problem for kit is that playing today and Friday means he has to play other players and cant stick with the same 11. I feel he will play Hugo as soon as he is fit as he is 'one of his boys'. Tonight would be an ideal oppotunity to give Smith, Kavagnah, Hoogland, and Roberts game time but can I see it happening?. No I can't.

This proves my earlier point Steve, ...IF... the squads confidence is as high as they make out and we go to Vicage Road tonight believing we CAN win, and your right with games so close together we need that confidence through the club so IF Hugo dose come of the bench we can get him scoring as earier in th season. CONFIDENCE HAS TO BE THROUGH THE WHOLE CLUB not just a couple who speak on ffc site.

Interesting debate you've started MST.My opinion is as good as we played on Saturday I still have to question the determination and desire to take a game by the horns and go for the throat.We did that on Saturday and it was successful against a top team so why can't we do it more often?Example for me would be Scott Parker the captain,the week before he was being slated by some and against Derby he was suddenly Roy of the Rovers.I know Parker's getting on a bit but you can't have your captain blowing hot and cold like that,he's the one on the pitch that is supposed to lead by example.Also has Kit turned into a technical genius overnight?Sometimes you can hit on a successful system by mistake,maybe that happened on Saturday.I was impressed with the team overall but need to watch closely tonight to see whether we've turned a corner.Really looking forward to this one.

I really think we should not be happy with survival, we have a Billionaire owner, who is probably richer than Al Fayad who took us up the table. NOT down. Anything less than promotion is not acceptable, 1 win and every ones excited we may avoid demotion.
WHAT A LAUGH

Dont forget we didnt have a keeper for most of the last game.

one thing i noticed about saturdays game was the fact that we had a very fair and unbiased referee which helped our team to become more confident unlike those Dianagate fa led referees tv pundits and newspaper men who still dwell in the past the players wear fairplay badges so lets have some.billybee
