Not quite there yet'but the final pieces of the jigsaw, will be put into place when we get a central striker. At this moment in time, any striker will do,that doesn't fall over,stiff as a board, or plays possum! (Ring any bells?) A big central striker who can head a ball,and capable of turning a defender and putting the ball into the net 5 times out of 10 will do nicely for Fulham! The signing of ojo from liverpool sends a strong message to every other team down hear in the championship, that Fulham means business! And to add weight to that, Ojo loves our style of play,(listen to his interview on fulham TV) Ojo had plenty of time to make up his mind on where he wanted to go, and he chose Fulham!!! We need to really get behind our team and to stop slagging and belittling our players on here. Sooner rather than later, we will click together better, and the goals will come. I say again, 5 out of 10 in the striker department will do nicely, because we are capable of scoring 8-10 goals between our midfielders and wingers. We proved that last season. I would like to see Aluko stay because he has his moments when he is sublime,and when he is on it,he is brilliant! Aluko had a few man of the matches for fulham last season. Some might say not enough, but all contributions count at the end. Even quiet man johansen, has great moments they all do. There are a lot of ifs and buts around some players and new loanees? but i just get that good feeling that we will get it together soon, and it will be awesome!!!!

if ojo,s a winger he aint gonna replace piazon , but and its only a but he could replace aluko , and that would be negative agreed , does any fulham fan , moaner or believer think we need another f,kin winger
Replies
Ojo is excellent recruitment to replace the sad loss of Piazon, who was often played as a wide attacking midfielder, which is exactly where Ojo can play. Joka's tactics demand that he has quite a few attacking midfielders, just so happens Ojo plays wide midfield on both flanks. Of course we all know we also need a central striker. Ojo is not that man moreline nor was he ever intended to be.

The club announced today that Fulham Football Club were going to become the champions of tolerance and inclusivity in a changing world. The owners of Fulham have taken notice of the historical past in dealing with gender neutrality and have decided to take the lead in bringing football out of the stone ages and into the modern world where gender and sexuality mean exactly what the individual wants it to mean. Football in Lonn, said Shahid Khan, has always had a strong transgender bent. Look at Brentford, he said, as an example of how a wading river crossing from days of yore became displaced by ferrymen, who would take you both ways for a couple of bob, but still retained it's reputation for being silly punts with long poles. Originally spelled Bentford, the letter "R" was added early in the nineteenth century to encourage locals to roll there "R's", a tradition continued by most Brentford women to this day. Bentford, though, were not the only early acceptors of the transgender ideology. They shared the stage with Queens Park Rangers, whose name is synonymous with the eponymous "Shepherd's Bush" and whose toilet-like co-location with the BBC luvvies gave them a heads start on inclusivity, although to be fair gay meths drinkers were more highly regarded than was perhaps fair, but it was a reasonable effort. Arsenal, in the other hand, didn't hide their allegiances, despite deleting the word "tail" from their nickname. Crystal Palace, a glass structure that burned down in the dawns of per-history, was no doubt fabulous as the name describes. Contd/.
Replies
Contd/. Tottenham chose the nickname "Hotspurs", which is very butch and redolent of leather chaps whereas Chelsea mainly hid their feelings and became more associated with Clinton and Manning than they were with football. Having gathered enough statistics to confirm this inclusivity trend, the club have decided to go all in, so to speak, and make Fulham Football Club the standard bearer for LGBT football. As part of that commitment, the club announced their third major sponsor, The Rainbow Coalition" whose leisurewear kit is now on sale in the club boutique. As part of the sponsorship the historic Craven Cottage will be renamed "Rainbow Cottage" and will be remodeled with nice chintz curtains and communal showers and plunge pools, so visiting teams can get to know the Fulham players in a more intimate setting. The club has found an old Mambre and Garton barge in a mud berth at the end of the Kensington Canal and this will be moored on the reach behind the renamed "Black Kits Matter" stand as a tribute to Princess Diana and her various cohorts, of which there were many. Contd/.

The "Hammy End" will, of course retain its name, as will the Riverside, the name bringing so many memories to the towpath warriors of days gone by. For now, the "Johnny Haynes stand", such an evocative and visual motif, all broad chest and little legs, will remain as such while the Putney End the favored haunt of the great unwashed, has still to be defined. Rumors that Darren Bent will come to Rainbow Cottage are described as premature, not the first time nor the last that word will be heard around the club. To close this groundbreaking announcement, , the club used the immortal words of Gentleperson Jemima - Wherever you are; whether it's good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night - Get some.

Went last night as I live on the coast and was there to check on a young lad from Pompey (LB who was only 16 but did a good job) ..Fun game to watch but not a tactical masterclass..Standout with real class in midfield was your young boy O'Riley who can see a pass no one else can. Seemed to cover most of the pitch too. Too many long balls out of defence when he and other were screaming for it. Iceland Jon Dagur (?) looked a handful and George Williams put a shift in. Overall the team looked better than their opponents but credit to Pompey with some lovely finishing. Very good penalty taking (and saves from keeper) Small crowd but good atmoshpere

If Scott Malone was that good why did we let him go? Where is you rationale with this? Club hierarchies are a law unto themselves! There could be a whole host of reasons: maybe they have someone better lined up; maybe Warnock wanted a left back that he prefers and plays more of his 'style', but Tan refused to finance it until he saw Warnock's superb start to the season; maybe, maybe, maybe! You speak as though the transfer process works on pure logic. It clearly does not!

Can never understand why fans are so bothered about for what clubs buy and sell players. Players are worth what a club is willing to pay or ask for them and if Neymar is worth £198m then £8.2m seems a snip to me...
posted by MST (Moderator) - Wednesday 16th August 2017, 8:23 PM
 
Simple: - 15 goals in 90 games during his spells in first divisions of Spain and Portugal - Doesn't pass the eye test, at least not from the time I saw him with Espanyol - Comparing this signing to the Neymar case is ludicrous, Neymar clearly is a top player int he game, a game changer, and brings in merchandising revenue; Fonte ticks neither box - If we have not been able to get in quality strikers lately, such as during the January transfee window last year, and now we spend 15m on half-a$$ strikers, yeah, I worry; good for you if you don't -Re: price tag a) that a club is willing to pay a certain amount of money for a player does not mean that said player is worth the money, managers still make dumb decisions; we can also pay 30m for the guy, or 100m, but what's the point; and b) we sold Mitroglou, who, despite the disastrous spell at Fulham, is an accomplished player, for 7m to Benfica. Mitroglou has scored 20 and 16 goals these past two seasons in Portugal whereas Fonte scored 2 and 11. Fair enough, Fonte player far less games but to be often injured is hardly a postitive...

He scored 10 goals in 22 appearances last season I think so not all bad. His a decent player plus ojo on loan cant go wrong
posted by Paul24FFC (Guest) - Wednesday 16th August 2017, 9:57 PM
 
MST there appears to be some flawed logic given one is a proven striker and the other has had only one season where he has delivered the goods. Marco, your stats are just a little conveniently presented for the negative point of view, as biased as if I focused on the 10 goals in 22 games last season, which would make him seem like a snip at £15 million!! Saying that I saw him play last year for Braga and although it was a dull match, he looked pretty good. I'd rather have signed his brother from West Ham though as our defence still needs some strengthening. Hopefully I'll be eating my words within a few weeks.
posted by 5crawny - Wednesday 16th August 2017, 10:53 PM
 
Nothing to do with logic. My point is that a player is worth whatever a club is willing to pay for him or sell him for and fans opinions mean nothing so I'm not sure why people get worked up about it. Most of the figures quoted by the press are erroneous in any case.

Well of course he was when we made the bid and paid it otherwise why would we pay it - just for a laugh?.

You could say that about any flop who was better at a former or future club from the one he underperformed at - Mitroglu, Stekelenberg, Carrol, Torres, etc., etc.

If some of you guys can show some patience? We will get a central striker eventually! It doesn't help that some so called fans of fulham constantly critisise the likes of Aluko and co. We know what Aluko is about,and most of us like him and want him at fulham. The way how football works beautifully, is reliant on wingers and pace and trickery. Take out these elements like the 3 most criticised guys we have will spell disaster for Fulham! Can you imagine when we do get a central striker,and there is no 3 of the above mentioned to feed off? We can't just rely on Cairney and sess,to do the trickery and pace. Why do you think that the likes of derby and others would welcome Aluko with open arms? And the funny thing is, LEEDS didn't score either,and guess what? They have a central striker by the name of Chris Woods!!! Most teams go through periods when they can't hit a barn door,it really doesn't help our cause if any negatives leak out to the ears of Aluko's. He has not yet signed a contract and i think it wouldn't take a lot of persuasion to make him move on. By the way guys, we have just signed oje (another winger) according to 5 live. Oje will benefit from playing around your Aluko's and floyde aite and co. Just chill out guys' we have another tough game at the weekend against sheff weds. Guess what? Sheff weds are finding it hard to score and pick up points too. I believe they have 1 point!!! I am sure that if we give them Aluko,Aite,and kebano, they would be over the moon! We have lost piazon for a long while, and we need to regroup and heal our war wounds from that leeds game. Believe me'we will need everybody on board this season because we have so many more injuries than last year. The best antidote we need right now is a home game on saturday at the craven,and we have that. Let's get behind our players for that one, and i promise you, everything will click sooner or later. For goodness sake guys'' if the likes of Aston villa,sheff weds,and more who are below us, we ain't doing bad! My worry is picking up injuries, because any more could derail our season, never mind wanting to ship players out!!! Get a grip some of you so called fulham fans!!!!

Agree totally Owen, I just can't understand these people who constantly criticise our players. As far as I'm concerned they have all, to a man, shown commitment and spirit since arriving. The clown who constantly has a go at Aluko in particular, shows a serious failure to grasp the fundamentals. We'd all like him to get his shooting up to speed but for me it is sufficient for him to just continue to confuse and worry defences. It's called teamwork and I would remind the moaners that we were the highest or second scorers in the Championship. I know we all have opinions, but I do wish that some re- visit and improve theirs. I by the way have been guilty of having a pop at Button from time to time and I would now like to praise him for his determination to up the anti and for his performances so far this season. Long may it continue.

Len - I'm sure you understand football, so surely you get that a team that plays out from the back needs to have a second option should the opposition press high. More teams will do this to us this season, it is hard work to do but some teams will succeed. With Button or Bettinelli in goal our route one goes astray or is knocked high for their defenders to take control over our smaller players that don't have it in their games to win headers against 6ft plus defenders. We need a strong focal point who can link play, keep two central defenders busy to allow our creative players to do their work. It gives us another option which we dont have at the moment, simples really.

One thing I don't seem to be getting is this over 28's thing the club seems to have in place. Doesn't a player come into his absolute prime between 28-31? All the experience, peak of physical fitness, know their game inside out, able to take instructions on board, more than likely settled down with a young family so not out on the town...

So why are we so against doing deals for the over 28's???

I agree completely if its a journeyman like most of the players Villa have picked up, no sell on value etc.. but I cannot see any sense in disregarding a good player because he is 28 or over??

Oh Duh. It's a forum. That's a thing you put information & opinions on. You Have yours, I have mine. Because mine are different to yours, that makes me less of a supporter ? I think our coach SJ is excellent. I think we have some really good players, Cairney, Johansen, Mcdonald, Kalas, Fredericks, Malone WAS good, Ream's getting better & better, Aluko's good ( but not as a main striker ). Betts getting better, Piazon was useful etc. But Djalo, Kebano, Ayite & Kamara are all average at best. I also think our management are poor, Late shirt sponsors ( missing sale ops ), Late transfer activity ( missing "bedding in" time ), meaningless over devotion to stats ( Kline ), senseless age restrictions. Cheap owner ( in my opinion ) with a failing modus operandi ( see jack jags ). Oh & when I want to, I can be far more entertaining than you.

First, let me say how sad I am to learn of Lucas Piazon who has broken a leg, after breaking his jaw at Cadiff City last season. The contract we signed him under will also hurt FFC as Chelsea charge twice weekly rates if their loan players are not in the team. Maybe this is not the case when injury strikes but my heart goes out to Lucas, who I hope recovers shortly. Good luck son. Now you mean supporters Caudey Woodrow cannot be loaned since this terrible injury, Caudey is a good forward and scored some excellent goals on loan at Burton last season. Get off his back, srikers need to be loved. Remember Rodney, Al1an Clarke and Gordon Davies all loved by us supporters, he needs to know we love him and he will score goals what he doesn't need is baracking and being made the scape goal when he gets a game. Come on Caudrey, you are an English Under 21 International aren't you. Lets have some goals.

I assumed that by now we would be sitting on top of table,judging by the rhetoric from close season, hit the ground running it was said,so whats gone wrong so far ?. I know we have a million points to play for but we are already 6 point adrift and if we lose to Wednesday could well be 9, we have played 3 top teams fair enough, but, 2 goals for two against , so defence is ok but lack of goals is not what I expected, last night it seemed no one knew were the goal was, a bad habit in this game,this needs to be sorted fast,its so easy to lose touch with the top teams, give it a few more games but I emagine S/J is wondering when we will score assuming as we are told we have the best mid/f in division so we should be half way there.

We should have maintained our form from the last quarter of last season. We Haven't so far. Against the standards we set back end of last season, we are poor. Even Kline's meaningless stats dept could tell you that !

good call....he was hopeless at left back for us and had to step in for Hangeland against Spurs away. I feared the worst but he was exceptional. He then went on from that and was a superb club servant. Typical of a player without any pace, dont play him in wide positions where he can get caught out, always a player that needed to be central. Although his confidence, along with many players, was completely shot to pieces under Sanchez's appalling reign as manager.

If what I read is true , Aluko is getting increasingly frustrated with Fulham and wants a new deal or a transfer. Ok then Sone , I would give you a new deal as you are a very good player. But how about a deal that pays you every time you score or a least get a shot on target. It's not just you getting frustrated

because Aluko is an excellent player when played in the correct position. He is not an out and out striker who will score lots of goals. He has other attributes perhaps Reading see that!
posted by Riverside (Guest) - Wednesday 16th August 2017, 1:27 PM
 
He looks good, but has no end result. It's why Hull got rid of him. A striker ( that IS what he's supposed to be ) that doesn't score isn't good enough. If Reading offered put in a decent offer i'd bite their hand off ! I bet SJ would too, if he was allowed to spend the money.
posted by Morgs (Guest) - Wednesday 16th August 2017, 1:56 PM
 
I still have clear memories of him coming on for Hull as a sub and everyone saying "Who?!!" Within two minutes I voiced my opinion that he was a game changer and he scored two goals that earned them the draw. We need to play him as a supplier to a good striker, staying on the wing more or centrally with the opportunity to drift wide and interchange like Cairney does. I am loathe to let him go.

I get both points...but what JBH needs to consider is the fact that a team needs a strong focal point and core. It is great we scored goals across the team last season but we often lacked a focal point when Martin wasn't playing. The team needs this type of player as a plan B, it worked well last season and that is why Joko was keen on Martin, we need a similar player. Notwithstanding teams will have worked us out and this season we need a plan b more than ever. Leeds were brutal last night in not allowing us to get control of our passing game. We really needed a Martin last night.

Leeds didn't score against Fulham, and they have a target man!!! I really think we will get a striker within the next 2 weeks, in the meantime, we will have to make do. We will be a patched up squad of players after that leeds onslaught. We are at home saturday against a Sheff weds squad that will want points, so it could be backs to the wall defending. Injuries are piling up this season, and it really isn't the time to criticise any of our squad. Slavisa will need numbers to pick from, and i hope Kamara is up for a start. If we can find our shooting boots on saturday, it would be the fitting end to some of our good movements on the pitch. We can carve teams open but we need to finish!!!!

It's not just about how many we scored or conceded, it's about our shots to conversion ratio. We were shocking and an effective, strategic thinking target man would change that. Martin was not that man!

I have to confess that I was very suprised to read the mainly negative comments this morning, following the Leeds game. When the seasons matches were announced, I'm sure most of us thought that that was a real tough start to the season. The general consensus was, I think, five points from the first four games and we'd be pleased. That total is still achievable. All the teams played thus far, were contenders last season and probably will be this. To hold Leeds at home to a draw and to play 90 mins plus at Reading for a draw, with 10 men, was, for me a real improvement on the team of a year ago who's head would drop and we'd give away leads time after time in the final minutes. SJ has moulded a fantastic fighting team spirit in this team. Established players, loanees and new signings are all giving 100% and we are everything we were not when he joined us, a team with backbone and commitment, all prepared to put in a shift for the cause. Remember those lazy fat slugs Martin and McCormack who only played when it suited them. Same could be said about Dembele and often was. Please don't mention their combined tally of goals, we've done better without them and are playing with pride for the supporters and club. Most of the teams in the top half have been getting their points against the also rans, don't think they will be there at the death. Grind out a result, play ugly, a la Brighton of recent years, we will be a force this year. A couple of additions won't go amiss and I'm sure they'll come. Be positive, onwards and upwards. COYWs:)

Mortlake, I couldn't have written that article better myself. I for one looked at the opening fixtures, when they came out, and I was thinking, that this looked a really hard set of games, especially as two of them were away from home, against some rough teams. If we can get past Wednesday on Saturday, with a win, then I think that we have made an excellent start to the season. The fixtures after this, although they look so called top teams at the moment, will be much more to our liking, and points will come to be a lot easier to collect. Not only do we have under JS, a team of top class players(with more to come)but we have a team of fighters who don't know when they are beaten, especially away from the Cottage. COYW

Depends on the damage caused and whether an operation is needed. With modern treatment, a clean fibula break takes about 6 weeks to permit standing up without support and then physio for another couple of weeks, and two more weeks to get match fit. Max, three months out, which should see him available for the lead up to the hectic Xmas/New year period.

15th in the league. Good performance but if we had added those 3 players we needed before the season just imagine where we'd be. Especially if TC was playing. Said this would happen (as did many). Tough start, lack of signings and 6 points off the top already. 3 players from being a major force and still done nothing. French 'B' league 11 goal forward may come good but not the 'big day for the club' so far as Kline stated!

Our defense looks more solid than it did last season. We've been hampered by injuries to key players, especially TC, and we're not losing. And yes, the club needs to understand we're only going up if we have a proven goal scorer. But we've also been unlucky -- Kebano and Cisse hit the post in two matches. When TC gets back, I think our scoring will increase.

We will win when we can score goals. Statistics tonight were Leeds 3 shots in total, all on target. Fulham 21 shots in total, 8 on target. possession pretty much 50:50. That is your answer LTS. Six points adrift is a lot in this league. Another 2 weeks for transfers and we could be 10 points off the pace. We can make excuses, we have played good sides etc, but it is not looking good at present.

Never with this team I'm afraid.We seem to be getting worse .Mid table at best.Are these new signings really any good or is it SJs tactics.I would love to get an honest unbiased opinion from anyone who was at the game.Look forward to going on Saturday as this game should give us the answer.

For goodness sake. We play 3 teams, all who could end up at the top at the end of the season. We play 10 v11 for the whole of one game. We have a few key injuries, and you think this a bad start . We are THE BEST footballing side in the championship. Just enjoy some of the sublime skills and stop fretting. If this style of footie doesn't take us up, then the whole of the UK football is rubbish. I love FFC and their spirit at the moment.

Guys it's not just about the results and the quality of the football. We know how good we are and what a great coach SJ is. I think nearly everyone is disappointed with our lack of quality signings therefore lack of ambition shown by the board to make this fantastic footballing side into potential champions and the fact that they had a great chance to achieve this and something that should have been resolved as soon as the window opens to give the club real momentum and drive. I wouldn't blame TC if he left the club after signing that new contract. He must feel as frustrated as us all really believing he was going to lead the club to promotion. Sess was signed to raise his future transfer fee. If neither of them go this window then they will both be off in January if we are not in the races!

I sit Hammy end and everyone is confident and happy with signings and knows effort is the key in this division and you just need to be top half at Xmas. We have signed a new striker today. Liverpool guy on loan. Be positive or standup at games and shout this criticism (put chain mail on first). Or stay on the sofa berating everything

6 points behind with 129 to go after and we're miles behind? Joke.We haven't had the best player in the division play yet.( might as well not have played v. Norwich). One of the best CBs in the division has missed 2 entire games minus 33 seconds. Drew away w/10 men. Drew away at a tough Elland road. Discovered Odoi is even more versatile than we knew. And we still have 15 days left to address our holes on the roster. Love the heart the lads are showing early on. Draws will become 3 points in short order starting with Saturday. On the topic of heart, thoughts go to Lucas Piazon. Hope he has a quick and sure recovery! Love his passion for our club.

We had what was seen as one of the toughest starts to the season for any side,
Norwich Home (should have won)
Reading Away a good point
Leeds Away a good point.
Sheff Wed home ??

All of the above sides had decent seasons last year and were all pushing for promotion.

The results will come so don't get down on the team get behind them

.......and Reading still couldn't beat us. The ref was a complete buffoon and ruined the game from the first seconds. He gave them every little thing , even a free kick near the end when one of their lot jumped in the air and fell badly. Moron. Where on earth did they get him from. They must of found the local village idiot sitting on a wall and offered him the game in exchange for a turnip

Parker was a class act. The season before last he massively contributed to our staying in the championship ( short term memory problems lads ? ). A bit of Piazon's occasional flashes of class & Readings lack of a decent goalscorer ( like us! ), gifted us a point. We were lucky.
posted by Ara (Guest) - Tuesday 15th August 2017, 3:39 PM
 
Ara, I (and most others I would have thought) don't disagree that Parker was a great servant to FFC whilst he was with us but he did not contribute to our best season in the last five (rather three of the worst in the last 10) and most of the players that took to the pitch last Saturday did.

Your post alludes to the point that we might have won should we not have sold Malone and Parker did not retire. Playing a whole game with 10 men against a quality team and coming a way with a draw is a fantastic result in most people's books and I'm just surprised you think we could have done better with Parker and Malone on the pitch. I'm sorry if you missed the point.

Would expect Managers would automatically hand in a report to the FA regarding the performance of the Ref after each game .

posted by Fred (Guest) - Tuesday 15th August 2017, 4:22 PM
 
My point was, that we were fortunate to gain a point rather than earning it. The ref was harsh. But we were lucky. Most teams would have crucified us. Reading ( like the ref ) were inept. If we had a stronger squad we may have EARNED the point rather than being lucky. Not a difficult point to understand was it MST.

When you have lots of money it's easier to buy talent rather than develop it. It kills development. It's no coincidence that the success of Spain & Germany coincides with the non existence of foreign owners ( Clubs have to be majority owned by supporters ). The premier "English" clubs exist as money making assets or vanity projects for their owners, aided by the businessmen of the F.A. who are in it for the gravy train. Neither supporters, or the people of this country reap any benefit. Even our youth teams are stuffed with foreign "potential" .

Maybe it's on??

Fulham have raised their offer for Braga forward Rui Fonte, according to A Bola.

The Cottagers are said to have had an offer of around £6.4 million rejected by the Portuguese side, but could fare better with their latest proposal, which is claimed to be £8.2 million plus bonuses.

Braga are reportedly seeking £9.1 million for their captain, who has scored two goals already this season, on top of the 15 he managed last term.

And according to A Bola, their asking price could be easily met if said bonuses are triggered.

Fonte is said to be keen on the move to Fulham, with his older brother Jose already on the books at West Ham United on the other side of London.

The 27-year-old has previously spent time at Arsenal and Crystal Palace, before spells at Sporting CP, Espanyol and Benfica.

With Fulham also closing in on a deal to sign Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo, Fonte's arrival would raise further questions about the future of Sone Aluko at Craven Cottage.

Aluko, who been linked with an £8 million move to Reading, posted a string of cryptic messages on Twitter on Monday.

I have followed our transfer business on the FOF site and find it incredible how many supporters are so negative even before they have had the chance to see a player on the pitch. The same as with Djalo applies to Rui Fonte who has not even signed yet, I also have an opinion but have the intelligence to wait and see the player before expressing it, however I have backed Fonte in a previous post as being a good partner for Kamara and am prepared to be proved wrong (although) I hope thats not the case.lets give the players of our club a chance and only get critical when its justified.

Can anyone tell me why Fulham are in talks with Burton Albion about a second loan spell for Cauley Woodrow when our team is not exacly full of No 9 centre forwards .... We need a recognised centre forward and need to give Mr Woodrow the chance to score some of the spectaular goals he scored at Burton last season at the Cottage. He's in the English Under 23 side and is coming good why not for us?

Largely because he is not up to scratch- a view shared by previous managers and a serious lack of interest ftom anyone seeking his permanent signature.

Agree with Keetch completely. Not sure if you were at the Wycombe game but if you were you would have seen the number of chances he spurned which is pretty much par for the course for Cauley. He needs 10 chances to score one goal. Nice lad but not good enough for a promotion push I'm afraid so best sell him and put the money towards a 15 to 20 goal per season man in my opinion.

He's hardly dad a decent run in the side has he ? Another championship side rate him. Kebano & Ayite are average at best & Aluko doesn't miss chances much does he ! Woodrow is an u23 England international as well, so more than a few coaches rate him. He needs a decent run in a decent side before judgement. As an English player & Fulham through & through, we should be getting behind him.
posted by Ara (Guest) - Tuesday 15th August 2017, 2:16 PM
 
I'm not sure you can compare Woodrow with Ayite, Kebano and Aluko as Woodrow is an out and out number nine centre forward and the latter are predominantly wingers.

If you compare Woodrow with Dembele for instance it is obvious to see that he has not developed in the same way and no amount of game time will make a player better if he does not have the potential in the first place.

I don't like that he won't make it for Fulham but the simple matter is that he is just not good enough as none of our coaches/managers have fancied him. I take your point about Burton rating him but are they not a League one side in waiting?
posted by MST (Moderator) - Tuesday 15th August 2017, 3:41 PM
 
ARA' You think Kabano and floyde aite are just average? Slavisa rates them, and i really would give them both a 2nd season, this season. There is a huge chance that Kabano and Aite will make that improvement. Kabano was taken off after 5 mins? I would have a stake that say's, Kabano is chomping at the bit,and will maybe play a blinder at Leeds tonight! I will even go further and say at least one out of the pair will be top class, and clubs will come begging!!! I like Aite a lot also, he will give most defences problems this season. That is the beauty of our squad at the moment, i would not rubbish anybody, i am well pleased with this fulham squad and more exciting additions to come! I LOVE IT!!! I LOVE FULHAM!!! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE KICK OFF!!! FULHAM!!!!!!!!!

Aluko is supposed to be a striker. He just cant't hit a cows ar*e with a banjo, nor the barn door behind it. But he does cause problems for defenders. Anyone who thinks Kebano & Ayite are anything more than average is deluded, That's why they were cheap (free?). I was comparing ability & potential MST, not positional play per se.

I reckon it could go either way for any number of reasons, so I'm going to stick with a 1-1 draw. If we do better than that, it's a bonus.

Our Dennis has been fulham's unsung hero in defence so far this season. I understand that we might be finalising the signing of left back Joe Bennet? I don't know a lot about him,but if we sign him? someone has seen some potential in him. Ain't it funny that i did not say' 'The manager' might have seen something in Bennet!!! I am taking it that this signing is part of the boardroom stats system? Anyway'getting back to our dennis odi' i really think that he is versatile enough to cover any part of a defence that we need covering! Dennis is more than a bit part in our fulham squad and i really think that we need to show him a lot more respect! And the only respect we can show odi,is to make him a number 1 certainty to play week in week out. I really think he is good enough to be picked every week,Odi is quality. Anyway, regarding the match up at leeds tomorrow night, i hope our guys aren't carrying too many lumps and bumps from that reading game? We need a good strong squad to play up there tomorrow night. In the meantime, i hope you guy's see how valuable Odi is to fulham. I suspect that Odi's show boat trick up at newcastle earlier on into last season, made him look like a one trick pony. Slavisa really needs to believe a lot more in Odi and use add him to the squad permanently. If we don't recognise and reward a decent player like Odi, he might come to somebody's attention and jump ship!!! Dennis Odi craves game time! Slavisa should use him more...

I would play him at right back with Fredericks in front of him, shift Aluko over to left wing.

He just wrote this tweet "If 1 day I write a book on my career I could dedicate a whole chapter to this past month. I have to just laugh at some stuff in football" Any idea what he is on about?

Strong reports that Cardiff have accepted an offer from Fulham for the left back and that we are currently negotiating personal terms with the player. Can't say I've paid him any notice - anyone?
Replies
They have a history of selling us good left backs or back should I say ! anyway hopefully he is decent and it will allow Sess to play in front of him .

Aged 27, been around a block a bit, seems Fulham are a type of club sees something in him, a mystery to me as i never heard anybody raving about Gordon Bennett.

Anyone heard if we are appealing his red card?? If not how many game ban will he get?
Replies
3 game ban if we don't appeal 4 if we do and lose will be only two Championship games and Bristol Cup game so don't think they will risk appeal

1 game ban; look at the FA website

I thought a straight red card was an automatic 3 game ban Dave

I believe three games is only for violent conduct but maybe someone knows better?
posted by MST (Moderator) - Monday 14th August 2017, 4:30 PM
 
Its a one match ban for a straight red card for a professional foul or a second bookable offence, a two match ban for a straight red card for dissent and a three match ban for a straight red card for a dangerous tackle or violent conduct

Kalas will only miss the Leeds match tomorrow, as it is a one match suspension, and let's face it, any of our side can miss a match through injury, so it's really no difference. Tom Cairney for example, missed the Reading game, but should be back tomorrow. Kalas will be back for the match on Saturday, for the game with Sheffield Wednesday, which in a way is of more importance, as we badly need a home win, to get us up and running.
