If I was a business man running an asset stripping hedge fund company that is we buy companies we sell their best assets then flog the company. Im looking for a new Board. On their past record should I employ any member of the present Fulham board?
Yes, all of them...cracking at asset stripping...

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

Having played Crawley Town recently, somebody raised the concern of the match becoming a regular fixture, suggesting that Fulham were likely to get relegated. Statistically promotion this season is unlikely, just under 1 in 4 relegated teams bounce back in their first season with just under 1 in 3 achieving the bounce back within two years of relegation. In the "Where are they now?" Category three years after relegation, 1 in 26 are in League 1, so unless Crawley get promoted, chances are we won't be playing them too frequently in the near future.
It is good to hear how positive you are not. The manager is molding a team and I wonder if you will be on this board in May when we ARE promoted Just be positive for a change and look forward to a great season

Purley, I have been a relatively frequent poster on this site for years and years and I am positive. The post was a response to a comment made on this site following the Crawley Town fixture. The individual in question suggested that it would be a regular fixture within a few seasons, to which my response was, "Do you really think Crawley have got what it takes to get promoted?" This response was data, nothing more and nothing less. How you interpret data is a different matter. The statistics are just that and I am confident we will have a good season, while many others are not. Either way to be brutal I don't mind, because I love being a part of the whole Fulham experience and have done since the dark days of the 90's. I'm ecstatic when we win and I manage a chuckle when we lose.

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

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

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

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

So Fulhamish...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Well guys havent been on here for a bit, but have been reading posts. To be honest last season has gone and so has most of the rubbish. However there still seems to be a certain amount of dome and gloom, even before a ball has been kicked (apart from pre season. I like the majority had my fair share of moaning like the rest of you and rightly so. However whats done is done, and I for one am quite excited about whats ahead, something to play for at last, automatic promotion, the play offs etc., rather than the hum drum of relegation, and the odd results that surprises all. Sure I pray we get back in the premiership, but for now we are in the champtionship, and with a young exciting team and hopefully a few new players coming in. Even if the players returning from the w.c. stay lets get behind them, a new chapter and hopefully a happy ending. COYW (or orange whatever)
Well said Bubbles. Totally agree with your upbeat and positive assessment. Just hope your bubbles don't burst!

Be patient, guys. It takes time, maybe a season, for players to gel into a team good enough to play in the EPL. What is important, in the meantime, is to get behind the team even if some results go against us. What pleases me is that Sky sports are televising some of our matches, which will raise our profile, and I'm sure the players will respond to that.

Magath says Mitroglu, Dejagah and Ruiz will still be with us in September. Is he talking them up to get more money or do you think they will?
The main question to ask is whether these players want to play for us? Ruiz is not a championship player, never will be able to hack the battles needed. The other two would.
posted by stephen terry (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 8:16 AM
If mitroglou stays don't care about Ruiz although if he stays he may be able to come up with a few magical moments again some of his play at Fulham was beautiful and if you say it wasnt your not a Fulham fan because it was those lobs and chips he can do gave us a few bright moments anywho if mitroglou stays our frontline along with the Youngbloods will be more than enough to see us in the top 2 of the championship. Next season should be good providing we hold on to a few players. Hope dejaga stays too he was 1 of our best players in the dismal parts of last season. COYWs august 9th can't cone quick enough
posted by Paul24FFC (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 9:47 AM
Im not sure why people are hoping Mitroglou will stay and what evidence they are using that he would be a asset to us anyway??

We signed him in January... He wasnt fit, had a knee injury, when he finally came back he was so overwieght that he coudlnt possibly be risked until we were already condemned to the championship.

He went to the world cup where he was garbage at best, again he didnt look fit, if you cannot get yourself fit to perform on the biggest stage in the world then you have some serious motivation problems.

I think we saw him perform 3 times last season, each time i saw him live, he looked like he couldnt even pass the ball in a straight line, he couldnt run, he had no energy, he dissapeared in all 3 games.

He was knocked out of the world cup 3 weeks ago, here's what really miff's me and please somebody feel free to argue his side of the cause.....

If i was a record signing( or near enough) for a club and when i joined i missed more or less the rest of the season and didnt contribute in any way and knew that i was severly lacking in any physical shape then when my team got knocked out the world cup if i was serious about getting in shape for next season and being match sharp for the start i would have been back at the training ground within days of being knocked out..

Ask yourself why does a guy who has played in total about an hours worth of football in the last 7 months need a extended break after 4 matches (all as a sub) in the world cup.. Answer is because he has no motivation, no hunger and no reason to want to play for Fulham in the Championship and certainly not desire to put in the hard work the kids and current players have had to endure over the past two weeks.
posted by Adam (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 10:35 AM
Firstly, Fred, although I am in the give him a season camp, Magath said he was certain we would not get relegated so I think what he says about the three amigos can be taken with a pinch of salt. He isn't used to the British press just yet and which words will come back to bite him on the bum. Secondly, Paul24FFC, " if you say It wasn't you are not a Fulham fan"?? Really?? Really??? Thirdly, Adam, I agree with you 100%. Get rid of him he's useless, I watched every one of his performances at FFC and in the World Cup and his contribution in every game was zero. Prima Donna!! The only one worth keeping is Dejagah and then only if he loses some of that attitude he has about not wanting to play in the Champions League (Freudian slip :-)).
posted by MST (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 11:01 AM
Ruiz was actually one.of the stars of the World Cup and whilst Mitlagou has looked poor to date he is highly rated and has scored a lot of goals. Both players home country's obviously rate them and both have played at top level. I don't believe either should be written off at this time as I can't see us attracting top players to the club. There is a risk but if Magath can't get the best out of them nobody can.
posted by Steve (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 11:21 AM
Personally i think Ruiz has had more than enough chances to prove himself in a Fulham shirt, 3 managers have all refused to pick him because quite simply he cannot hack the physical side of the English game... Glimpses of brilliance (i think 3 in total) are far outweighed but his appaling performances and work rate in a Fulham shirt.

Yeah he played well in the world cup but all games were played at a slow tempo and a pace to suit him, he will get hammered in the Championship next season, he will be targetted by all the teams and he will not be able to handle it.

He needs to be plying his trade in the Dutch or Greek league where he will be able to lob around the pitch at his own pace... Im more peeved by his world cup exploits because all i can hear in the background is Jim Bowen say "heres what you could have won" we got the shitty version at Fulham, Costa Rica get the good version, its not down to managers etc... its all up to the player to perform and have pride in his own game, had he played the same way for Fulham he did for Costa Rica then we would be chanting his name every week.. Unfortunatly after 3 seasons we still havnt seen any improvement.
posted by Adam (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 11:38 AM
We will agree to have different opinions but I think he was played in the wrong position doing a job he couldn't do. Despite his poor performances for Fulham Costa Rica kept faith and were rewarded. He also score 5 for PSV in 14 games.
posted by Steve (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 12:50 PM
I'm sorry but I cannot agree that Ruiz was a star in the World Cup. Yes he scored a couple of good goals but the rest of the time he wandered all over the pitch and lost the ball taking on one to many in the wrong position like he did for us. I watched every minute of every game he played in believe me Costa Ricas success was down more to hard work and team ethic than Luiz's laconic approach to all games not just those in a Fulham shirt. Adam is right the games he played in were slow and because his reputation preceded him he was left completely unmarked for evey goal he scored. Outside of that I saw nothing out of the ordinary from Brian. And on a separate note how come he came up with some cock and bull story about his father for wearing Brian on his FFC shirt instead of Ruiz but wore Ruiz in his country's shirt- simples - another Prima Donna ....
posted by MST (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 1:31 PM
Ruiz was one of the stars of the WC because he finished his chances. Unlike Sturridlge and Rooney. He looked fitter than at Fulham. But I totally agree. I watched all the Costa Rica matches and the right ball would've exposed him. He floated a lot and left his organized teammates to pick up the slack.
posted by Drago (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 5:01 PM
Ruiz was very poor at Fulham and was never a star with Costa Rica. He cant get off the ground or challenge an opponent he had the odd ,very odd ,bright moment.He will be a waste of space..again.Surprised if Magath ever plays him.If he does what does that say about Magath.
posted by JIM JO (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 9:26 PM
Costa Rica played him every game and PSV played him every game so someone somewhere sees good in him. We paid 10m for him so someone saw good in him. If everyone thinks he's not good enough to play in the championship then a lot of people have made mistakes.
posted by Steve (Guest) - Tuesday 22nd July 2014, 10:11 PM
As usual agree with you 100% Adam and you too MST. Why anyone would want to keep him I cannot fathom . WHEN he played he was truly rubbish and did nothing to suggest he had any potential whatsoever . Not someone I would want to entrust with the task of picking up maybe 15-20 goals next season that's for sure .
posted by Mortlake (Guest) - Thursday 24th July 2014, 7:54 AM
The game is all about opinions in my humble opinion Bryan Ruiz suffered in his time at Fulham simply because our inadequate manager Martin Jol persisted in playing him out of position. Surely Ruiz was not signed to chase and harry opponents or get stuck in in the middle of the park. He is a luxury player and is blessed with great ability. If Fulham can produce an industrious creative midfield which would allow the likes of Ruiz to play with a bit of freedom I believe we could have one hell of a player on our hands, certainly a player to create havoc in the championship
posted by Eddie (Guest) - Thursday 24th July 2014, 11:02 AM
Some truth in that Eddie but can FFC afford the luxury of such occasional skills . Always seen us more as a team of grafters rather than individual brilliance that the rest of the team have difficulty keeping up with . Anyway new season , new players , hopefully mind set , and a bit of grit and determination . Quietly optimistic .
posted by Mortlake (Guest) - Thursday 24th July 2014, 7:28 PM
Eddie & Mortlake You are both correct, the problem was also that we had Berbatov, another "luxury" player at the same time. No team can afford two players like that but Berba was Jol's favourite plaything so he was never going to be dropped or played anywhere other than where Berba wanted.
posted by Fred (Guest) - Thursday 24th July 2014, 11:36 PM
Quite agree one luxury player can be accommodated at a stretch but two was always a non starter. Fulham sadly made the wrong choice Unfortunately Ruiz received the flak from the crowd whilst Berbatov slipped under the radar. I believe that Berbatov along with Jol proved to be a huge factor in our demise. A wonderfully talented gifted player but he was selfish, lazy ,egotistical and totally detrimental to the overall team ethic. The Bulgarian sloth and the Dutch imbecile were allowed to hang around for far too long. Strangely Berba could do no wrong as far as the crowd were concerned and poor old Bryan Ruiz was left to carry the can As a result Ruiz was hopelessly mis-used by our inept manager his confidence gradually drained away and he was ultimately sidelined and shipped out on loan.

Did anyone go to the Crawley match and if so how did we look? I read that it was hot. The temperature reached 26c and the ref allowed a break to recover! I beleive Taggert got on but at 26C he was probably still wearing his thermals.. :)
First half looked OK but view not great as at pitch level. The loads of changes. Was 3 or 4 really as Dembele scored, hit bar but went in and disallowed and Pen not given. Worst thing several players had hair in buns! Left back is prem class. Keefe won't be moaning about that position next year. Ruiz, MIT and bomber to play we are lookin good

Unfortunately he's not as good after last season as his agent told him he was and is not getting the offers he thought he would. I thought QPR were going to get him but they went for Ferdinand instead. I think someone will sign him but he's not the player he was two seasons ago.

Brede has been a loyal, fantastic captain and served his club admirably, until last season. He was one of the main reasons we reached the Europa League Cup Final against Athletico Madrid only a few years back. An injury early last season seemed to be the end of his excellent playing record at Craven Cottage. When he returned (too early I believe) it could be seen to all us supporters that he had lost his aerial domination and was being out jumped by players seven or eight inches shorter. This was Brede's best attribute, his heading ability. He was never known for his quickness with ball at his feet, but his out jumping strikers more than made up for this. He became an easy target for opposing strikers. Our goal against was the worst I can ever remember. Without our star defender, slow full backs that were not covering was our demise. Then to come out in public to slag off the club that gave him his big chance in the EPL (for whatever reason) was wrong.

I agree with you Brian. I would add that Aaron Hughes made Haga look better than he is. No surprise that when Hughes slowed down Haga didn't perform as well.

I could not agree more Phil. You are 100% correct.
Funny game isn't it? I spent most of last season slagging off just about everyone at the club, we get relegated, and I am back to my normal excitable self, looking forward to a great season of football............

Time has caught up with Brede Hangeland as it does to us all. In his time at Fulham he was totally committed to the cause, turning down offers from more fashionable clubs on at least two occasions and until injuries slowed him down would generally guarantee a top performance. Normally a rock at the back alongside Aaron Hughes. The club alongside certain sections of our support should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves for the recent abysmal treatment of this great club servant.

Brede gave us gret service but the last few months he was getting caught out along with other players to many times instead of coming on tv and sllaginghis old employers he could have said he was not blameless for the teams demise and he made his share of mistakes !!!! Bit ungracoius brede unlike ffc who thanked him for his service and said he was always welcome at cottage in spite of his comments!!!!
