Forfuna and Ruiz on the bench, kaka nowhere to be seen, Parker probably knackered, David and eisfeld playing for someone else. No wonder we are in the crap.

Is this an omen? any one see Jimmy Anderson beating Bothams bowling record?, more to the point any one see over hanging the stands in Antiga the FFC huge banner for all the world to see? but next to it another huge st George banner with Basingstoke written across it in large letters. Kit , Basingstoke , and FFC all together in antiga, spooky, looked for Kahn but no luck;.

Yes I saw that on the news. Spooky.

Fulham are unbeaten in the last seven meetings in all competitions against Blackpool winning four. Blackpool's last win was 2-1 at Bloomfield Road in the old Division Two in February 1998 have not won any of their last 15 games, losing 10. Their last win was 1-0 against Brighton at Bloomfield Road on 31 January. Blackpool have not won any of their last seven home games, drawing three and losing four.

That must make them a home banker then, knowing that we always give teams with losing runs a lift by losing to them. I can't see us scoring, so it's 2-0 to Blackpool. Oh I do so hope that I am wrong ! !

A 1-1 draw, then 2 losses against Boro and Norwich, and pray Mwall lose. If I was manager today, I'd tell the team they're shite, will f'up and lose, so just go out and enjoy themselves. (Aka Roy Keane motivation scenario.)

2-1 to Blackpool fulham to score first, then flop because they are to tired from pre-season training & all defenders on by the end.

Just off to Blackpool. Last time I went we lost 2-0, Alan Mullery time. Expect the same today as with this team and management we couldn't beat an egg.

Mick Mccarthy, Big Sam & Steve Bruce. 3 Managers ive seen us linked with and IMO if given the right the funding have the championship experience to bring in the right players but also progress the talent we have at the club already. Would love kit to slide back into youth coaching set up but cant see that happening on his behalf nor can i see him getting a mangerial role any time soon else where. Eyyooo season ticket renewed, although i have bocotted the last two games and will also the last.. uuuuuwhhhittetsss

Mick McCarthy and 50 million on new players should see us getting promotion. Then another 100 million to make us a force again. Anything other than that, and we can wave goodbye to being anything other than a mediocre Championship or League 1 team. And that's the truth.

I confess most of this made me gloss over but the conclusion "first things first, promotion is needed and we have an owner who can support that, and I think he will have to." is as delusional as anything I have read for a while. This owner has shown no indication of putting his hand in his poket thus far and I doubt he will during the summer break either.

TIGANA, KEEGAN OR WARBURTON, DONT WANT WEST HAM MANAGER, HE'S HAD STICK ALL SEASON FOR THE CRAP WAY HIS SIDES BEEN PLAYING, WHY THE HELL WOULD WE WANT HIM. WANT A MANAGER WHO'S ATTACKING AND COUNTER ATTACKING WITH GOOD DEFENCE TO BACK IT UP. KHAN NEEDS TO GIVE US OUR PARACHUTE PAYMENTS TO BUILD THE SQUAD AND NOT PUT IT IN HIS OWN POCKET, DEVELOPE THE NEW STAND AND UP THE STADIUM, IF HIS NOT INTERESTED, THEN ITS ABOUT TIME HE PISSED OFF, AND LEFT IT TO SOME ONE WHO HAS A LOVE OF THE CLUB, AND NOT AN INTEREST IN TAKING AS MUCH MONEY OUT THE CLUB THAT HE CAN GET HIS HANDS ON. KHAN TIME TO MAKE YOUR MIND UP, PUT UP OR F--K OFF??????????????

I have just my season ticket renewal through and I see we have until 15th May to renew and keep our seat, not that it will be a problem to get a seat after that. If nothing changes I will not renew and others have said the same. I was wondering what it would take to make up people's minds. I know some have said they will and a lot have said they won't but what would change people's minds one way or another.
Replies
For me I will not renew unless I see us have serious intent on changing our manager (meaning Kit is sacked immediately after the Norwich game)and some indication that we will BUY (not loan) well in the summer. I sit in the JH block EL, row EE with pretty good seats but I am pretty confident that I will be able to sit there or close to there next season without and ST. My renewal price is £570 versus £680 (I think) this season so there is a considerable saving but I will not drive 150 miles each way next season to witness the same dross and the same miserable excuses for non performance as this and last seasons. Why should I?

I have supported FFC since 1973 when I was 15 but I truly don't believe the rubbish that a club is in your blood (my Dad supported QPR GRHS and my wife supports Chelsea). I go to Fulham to enjoy a good day out with my youngest son who is 25 and I want to be entertained and see us win from time to time otherwise I might as well watch my local team Cheltenham Town.

This year the club and the team have been torn apart by Khan and his cronies and they have no clue how to run a successful football club. What were the last 18 years for.......nothing it seems. I will not pay another grand for season tickets as well as shell out for an away season ticket and cup tie tickets.

When I saw "a message from the chairman" on the website I expected to read some profound message on how he was going to invest in the squad, improve the Board, plan for ground improvements and share something of his plan to get us back to the Prem but NO just a pitch to sell season tickets!! Outrageous!!

Rant over!

For me the cost is easily affordable at £305 and so I will renew on last day and then choose my games and not get wound up by the crap. Have a pint on the terrace and enjoy life the Fulham way
posted by Phil (Guest) - Friday 17th April 2015, 10:58 AM
 
It would take a change of Manager to one that I have respect for, plus a clear statement of intent that Khan was actually going to spend a significant amount to rebuild the club. The words coming out of the club from Khan's son make it clear that my wish list won't be met
posted by Te (Guest) - Friday 17th April 2015, 11:43 AM
 
As long as Kit is sacked my son and I would renew, but not if he remains.
posted by midds (Guest) - Friday 17th April 2015, 3:28 PM
 
I have a restricted view seat in the riverside stand. Next season will cost £204, so about £9 a game. Can then go and sit in the £750 a season seats anywhere else in the riverside stand. Cheaper than going to watch non league football although of course slightly less quality of football. Would much prefer to pay more and see the stands full and watch the Fulham of old but i'm not prepared to pay too much more for this shite.

Last July Khan said the clear out of players meant the squad now was full of fighters . Players who would stretch every muscle to get a result for the club .Great sound bite but as soon as the season started we saw the reality , a mediocre squad who had even less fight than the previous season . Kit has said he prepares the team but it is out of his hands once they are on the pitch . Rubbish , most good coaches are able to motivate and change tactics .we have someone who is more pipe and slippers than hairdryer .the last 5 games have been crucial to our season , but we hardly seemed bothered . No fight , no passion , truly horrible . I think we will survive , just , but the club is just sliding.badly managed frm the top ,no spine to the team and the players just seem to want to get the season over . Most of the fans feel their loyalty has been abused over and over .

.......I urge you to look at the time of this message! I travel up from East Kent, a round trip of about 7 hours and yes, I still look forward to it. Something inside me stirs up that feeling of anticipation as I walk through the park, get to my seat after those timeless pre match routines we all experience - then the whistle blows ..... And the self harming begins! Why is it that a Football Clubs greatest asset - The Fans - never appear to be listened to? I really cannot let myself think about where we have come from, the Europa Final to a home draw with Rotherham, searching fixture lists for the next possible point. Perhaps it is just me - unfortunately not - I like countless others have indoctrinated my son and his son.
Replies
The only difference between us MR is that I live in North Kent and it takes me an hour less to get to and from Craven Cottage but apart from that I feel exactly the same as you, dreadfull as last season was I felt that at least we would compete in the championship but as the weeks went by it became obvious that this was not to be. We can only hope that our owner makes good his promise to bring the good times back, though like many of you out there have grave doubts so come on Mr K prove us all wrong!
posted by John (Guest) - Friday 17th April 2015, 9:08 AM
 
I live in Gloucestershire and have had season tickets home and away for the last 18 years (not needed before that) but I will not spend another penny on this club until Khan has either gone or shown some leadership in moving Kit and his management team as well as most of the Board out of the club and shows some real intent in getting us back to at least compete in this league.

Khan is no Fayed. He hardly ever comes to watch his club. He has no real knowledge or love for football. He solely relies on what his highly paid management team tell him each week. If Kit and his backroom staff are feeding him with how unlucky we were to only get one point against Wigan and Rotherham, and that the squad are too tired after Magath left, he will believe it. If he read this message board, spoke to the fans, came to witness the poor displays week in and week out like our long suffering fans do, he would have taken action. Or would he? Does he really know enough about the English football leagues? Does he really care?
Yes, we need a decent manager, but also a complete change of backroom staff. People that love Fulham FC. Possibly a new owner who does care. Without major changes, I share everything Te writes. He loves this club like we all do and only want for the best. We should DEMAND the best. Anything else is not good enough.

Hi Fulham fans... Tranmere fan here,just a quick on about our very own Max Power hes being linked with a move down south to sign for you lot after the inevitable happens and we are finally relegated out the football league for the first time in our long proud history! His early season form this season was fantastic and when reportedly the likes of Swansea & Sunderland were interested he became a better player all roumd player. Once the January transfer window closed his performances plummeted BUT saying that he would be a great addition to your club and hopefully get you back in the big time where you belong. Hope your old boy Micky Adams can keep us up! Good luck.
Replies
Micky Adams was our real saviour before Al-fayed came in with his money. I would have him back at a heartbeat. We need new talent as we have very little in our team at this time. Good luck for the future I'm sure the good times will come for both our clubs.

Former Fulham manager Felix Magath has criticised Premier League clubs for overlooking youth development, claiming that is the reason why there are no English clubs in the last eight of the Champions League and Europa League this season. While Magath acknowledges that the Premier League is one of the world's most attractive divisions, he says failing to ensure solid foundations is now being reflected in their clubs' results on the continent. "A tendency was recognisable and for there to be no Premier League side in the quarter-finals is too little, but you can't talk about it being misfortune," Magath told "Sport1.de". "English football has structural deficiencies in the youth area. It's astonishing that a footballing nation like England lets the gloss of the Premier League blind them. "Of course the Premier League is more popular around the world than the Bundesliga, but that's superseded by the fact English football has had very little to show in the form of national team success for many years. "Maybe they can learn something from our world champions in this area, but please don't think it's all about gathering data because gathering more and more data in football, particularly in England, doesn't really help." Magath believes English clubs are making the wrong kind of investments in this area. "Of course [having] money is not a disadvantage, but it's being used in the wrong way in England," added the 61-year-old. "They're creating machinery which is overrated. Many English clubs now have a performance director who has a whole manner of data over each player and, with that, he's meant to decide what should be trained and when, even though he's not even at the game and seen how the player performed or what sort of situation he's in." Magath's own stint in English football was not particularly successful. He took charge of Fulham in February 2014 but was unable to prevent them from being relegated to the Championship. In September, he was relieved of his duties with Fulham having gone 11 league games without a win. "I don't regret it at all," Magath said. "Of course it wasn't such a joyful time in a sporting sense, but the reasons for that were deep-rooted. "Fulham had big problems in February 2014 - they were bottom of the table without me. "I thought I could have had more influence in forming the team, but that wasn't the case. That just reinforced my belief that it's better to be coach and manager in one so that you can have the responsibility for what happens."

Couldn't care what that twat thinks.

I agree Phil. He was a nasty, egotistical bully and all the players hated him. However, I was interested in one sentence " it's better to be coach and manager in one so that you can have the responsibility for what happens." It seems he is trying to deflect the responsibility towards the coaching staff rather than he, as manager. That does seem a bit rich given his reputation as a fitness freak. But, and I say this with trepidation and in the knowledge that I am about to cop it... was he right? The current run of form would suggest that there are serious problems with training. Many here have bemoaned our lack of defensive organisation and conceding from corners and set pieces etc. Our previous success was built upon a solid defense instigated by Woy. Since then it has gradually been eroded as each manager leaves, with his own staff. The manager is, quite rightly the centre point for our congratulations and despair but does it run deeper? I was the first to abuse Mark Hughes when he walked out on us but much of what he said was absolutely true so perhaps I was a bit harsh on him. The problem is, as fans and from the outside we see things as black and white (pun intended) but the whole workings of the football club are a whole lot more complex than we really understand. For the record I still loathe Felix Magath and I would put water in his ear if his brains were on fire.

Hints - I agree about the coaching being poor all round. Same mistakes week in week out when in the premier league and now. Perhaps it goes back to Hughes and his extensive entourage of coaches which caused us to release a number of coaches and who all left with him? Losing people like Ray Lewington and even Billy McKinally has had a damaging effect and their experiences hasn't been replaced. If I was Khan and intent to keep Symons I'd spend some money on a proven assistant like Sammy Lee, I really think it would make the world of difference to us

Lets finish the disappointing season by putting Roberts on the right wing Kaca on the left wing and ask them to take the full backs on go for the bye line and try and get crosses in for Matt Smith. Its absolutely ridiculous we don't play with wingers . Of course there are plenty other ares we could work on especially defence but I think this would help in the immediate short term !

It's because sheep will be sheep & follow each other's arses off a cliff even when they no something is wrong, yes I believe FFS has the young talent to pull it back with the right set up but it's the fact you's feed the club no matter what is happening. Supports can have a say by staying away & showing discontent but lemmings follow no matter what. Te ain't the only one who is upset about what's going on!
posted by JJ (Guest) - Thursday 16th April 2015, 8:03 PM
 
Problem is we have a lot of youngsters who can't get a game. Roberts has rotted in the u21 as has Dembele. Woodrow has had bit parts and none of them are any further forward than they were last year. The other problem at the moment is there are no signs of any movement forward. Symons will never be a manager and Khan will never show enough interest. Unlike Te I have not written things off just yet but come back FFC when the club shows the slightest ambition.
