Cast your minds back to that game against Watford! Every Fulham fan can see that we have the ability and talent to survive and compete in this league but for umpteen reasons, we are not performing. I had a funny feeling that Slavisa would lose his job after this loss, but maybe he survives by the skin of his teeth. The dust has settled a little bit now and we are greaving about this loss in particular because we know deep down in our guts that we should be beating teams like Cardiff. Cardiff are poor, and this was the perfect time in our history they could have beaten us. I really think that the internationals took it's toll on this Fulham team this time around. A few players came back late on in the day from them, and sadly we need much more from some of our tired and fatigued players. Stunning strikes from quality players like Scuurle and a decent strike from Sessegnon is not enough to sustain us at the moment. We need our bread and butter players to put more of a shift in on the pitch, but it is just not happening at the moment. At 2-2 Fulham were looking good for a win and to push on for more goals, but again our soft side manifested once more and proved very costly. Cardiffs 3rd goal was just typical of our season and again exposes us for everyone to see. Schoolboy defending, and i thought that Bettonelli should have done better with a goal like that one. How much time does he need to position himself going down for it? That shot rolled in at a snail's pace, it killed us really. We really have digressed rapidly from nearly beating Watford a few games ago now, and have a good think about Watford's win against Wolves today? Did anyone see that one coming? Fulham really need to sit down and work out these problems and how and why we are losing at this time because nothing makes sense at the moment. Bournemouth at home next week? I think we will put more of a shift in, but how much confidence is knocked out of us now is the question. We have the talent to get on in this league, but not enough fight and steel to battle. Maybe a SOS call out to Arsene Wengar LIKE mst suggested could be the tonic that we need right now at this time. Slavisa doesn't seem to know how to fix what needs fixing, and time is running out for him now. Wengar like Pellegrini at West Ham are in the twilight of their years now, but arguably, they will benefit from managing smaller clubs. Pellegrini will get West Ham playing after a iffy start and gelling their new players in. Wengar i feel, can come to Fulham and sort out our squad who are low in confidence at the moment. A shot of adrenalin is needed at Fulham, and maybe it is time to call for old man Arsen Wenger... SORRY SLAVISA' I AM LOSING FAITH!!!

It seems that since Stuart Gray left or was pushed everything seems to have gone wrong with our defense. I like to give Joka till the end of Nov to sort it out.But I think Joka should employ a Stewart Houston type of Coach under him as he did under George Graham to sort out the defense. As in reality, something has to give in Jokas attacking principals are not working as we are leaking too manygoals.
Replies
Seems like players and managers find their level and they cant all cut it when it comes to the Premier League. Like to see Joka do it but nothing is changing. If we are to stay up he may not be the man for the job.

Oh for a quick return to the Championship, where we are as good, if not better than all of the other teams. The Premier League is proving not to be an enjoyable experience, and I for one am really cheesed off with losing week after week, and letting in goal after goal. They say it's great to have to play against some of the top players in the world, but it's certainly not great being pushed around week after week, so roll on May, when we will be back where we belong, and then we can rule the roost once again amongst our own environment.

The Fulham midfield simply cannot control the game, stifling the offense and putting the mediocre (so far this season) center backs under too much 1 v 1 pressure. Seri seems to lack the requisite physicality, and his passing seems calculated (poorly) rather than instinctive. Fulham may be able to get away with playing either Johansen or McDonald, but lack of pace issues should preclude both being on the pitch together. It's obvious that Fulham badly miss Targett and Fredericks, who consistently put teams on the back foot last season. Ream and Mawson don't appear to have full match fitness, which will also be an issue when Cairney returns. Slavisa's preferred style simply doesn't work with a midfield that gets pushed around and overrun, and fullbacks who offer little going forward.
Replies
Exactly my point!

Quote from above, fullbacks that offer little going forward, spot on, and fullbacks that offer even less going backwards to defend,can't believe what I'm seeing.

Before the season started, a number of us said that we will know how our season is going after 10 games. Well next week against Bournemouth will be our 10th games and if we lose that one, as I expect us too, then it quite plainly means that our season is going to one of a complete struggle. Today we played and lost to, the worst side possibly ever to play in the Premier League, and will most definitely be relegated this season, along with probably Huddersfield, so what does that make us. Surely we have now taken over Cardiff's mantle of being the worst side in the league, as to lose to Cardiff is the biggest humiliation that any club can face. Where is the lovely football that we played last season, and what the hell has happened to our defence ? We are not down yet, but we are facing a real hard task to keep out of the bottom three, but it can be done.

Cardiff beat us easily. Having watched Huddersfield against Liverpool, they look way more solid than we are. Our confidence across the entire team is so low that any team can beat us! We have to snap out of this situation otherwise relegation is possibility!
posted by John (Guest) - Saturday 20th October 2018, 9:58 PM
 
Chambers at rb was getting roasted. Christie on the bench just because he had a bad game against Arsenal in the wrong system. I have always been very positive in my posts in the past, but after watching that today & with that team selection I am now beginning to doubt the manager. Is he just out of his depth? Is it time to change? Not just yet imo. However, my patience as well as many others is wearing thin. I don't think Khan will suffer these types of performances for much longer, the issue is, who is available to replace Slav if he did go? Please, not Sam A! Let's just hope Slav will sort it out & turn us around. Beating Bournemouth would help!
posted by Chris (Guest) - Saturday 20th October 2018, 10:33 PM
 
honestly if anyone thinks it will be any different for quite a while then they are mistaken. If he knew what to do he'd have change something or had some sort settled team. If he had any ideas how to stop letting in goals he'd have done something. The team seem to have no confidence and heads are dropping every week. What will he do next week? He will change the back four and play the same sort of football. Those who think Ream was the answer, he's not. Those who think Cairney will be the answer, he's not. Slav hasn't got a clue and we continue to see it.

Slavisa needs to play Odoi at RB. Christie deserves to sit, but Chambers looked like poor Dan Burn a few years ago. Le Marchand offers nothing going forward or backward. Bryan is far better. We need Mawson and Ream to gel fast. Same with TC. I’d like to see us at full health before Slav gets judged too harshly.

Somewhat fanciful. Better get Big Sam before someone else does. Frankly, if we don’t do something fast, we will be cast adrift and the task of staying up will get that much harder. Today’s result did Khan a favour, as a draw would have encouraged procrastination. We will never know why Watford parted company with Jokanovic, but history has shown it to be a wise decision. He is totally out of his depth, and, if he isn’t sacked, then Khan is a real chump. Who’d be the owner of a Football Club?

I’d take benetiz! He wants a club prepared to back him in the transfer. He’s stock value probably means he won’t be considered for any of the top 10 clubs in the world. He probably wants to get out of Newcastle. He’s the best defensive, without resorting to long ball, coach out there! Benetiz for me! But I’d give SJ a few more games!
posted by John (Guest) - Saturday 20th October 2018, 7:01 PM
 
I thought Wenger hung on for too long at Arsenal and the club suffered. SJ believes in himself in much the same way. Real problem is that Khan is not a boss known for sacking failure as per his NFL Jaguars. With all his money I doubt he loses sleep over FFC. After next week we will have played over 25% of our EPL games for 5 points (no chance of beating Bournemouth). I can't think of any club that has recovered from such a disastrous start. Relegation from Newcastle, Huddersfield, Fulham, Cardiff. I'm betting £50 on a yankee.

MST' Arsene Wenger is a brilliant suggestion, better than my 2 guy's. Laudrup is in the wilderness somewhere and obviously on too much money, and Carlos Carvalhal is talented but probably a bit too eccentric? I can see Khan going for Arsene, and Arsene accepting. Wenger doesn't need the hullabaloo and all the baggage of big the clubs anymore. Fulham are in London and a perfect location for our wee Frenchman, and Khan will be a lot more generous with the purse strings. Another bonus is that his love-child Chambers will put in a shift for Fulham if Arsene comes. Win Win there....

If Fulham want to stay in the premier league Sj has to go and go now. It does not matter how many goals we score with the amount of goals we are conceding we will be relegated. If we do get rid of Sj let's not promote someone within like Parker it is to soon for him.We need a manager who can keep the defence tight and get us out of relegation trouble and then we can build from there best person for this situation and proved it time and time again is Sam Allardyce.

Robert Huth is a free agent. If he’s fit - bring him in for 6months. Get rid of Parker and bring back Clark. We need to change something. Like to give SJ a few more games but we need to change something ASAP before we end up at the bottom of the table!

The usual doom merchants are about. I believe in SJ to sort this. The club didn't spend all that dish on Mawson for nothing. Now both he & Ream are fit they have to play together in the Center of defence and build what should be a very formidable partnership & the bedrock that we need.

I would like to see a 3-5-2, try Ream Odoi and Mawson at the back until the window and have sess bombing up and down the left, I think we miss fredericks down the right but try one of Christie/Mensah on the opposite side - compact the midfield and play schulre just behind mitro, that seems a better balance to me

I wrote below that Einstein once said that “only a fool would keep trying the same experiment expecting to see a different result”. Well those of you who can’t see Slavisa Jokanovic is a fool can only be blind in my opinion. We are stubbornly trying to play tippy tippy football to our complete detriment, losing the ball in midfield and putting the defence under pressure in every game. Apart from one penalty, every goal we have conceded this term has come from mistakes by midfielders and it is quite clear now that we do not have good enough players to continue with Jokanovic’s only tactic. We may well be relegated but at least let’s put up a fight; I can see nothing from these players that shows heart and that can only be because they do not believe in our head coach’s stratagem. I agree with many others that we need to make a change now before it really is too late because no team has ever stayed up shipping goals like we do. Mitrovic, Schurrle, Seri and Anguisa must be wondering what they signed up to. Really disappointed :0((((((((((.
Replies
MST, the internationals probably took the edge of some players like Seri, and some came back Thursday late. I keep repeating myself. Apart from Seri's wonder goal, he contributes very little in midfield and he loses the ball too often. Ream is struggling to get to grips with the pace at the moment. The question is, 'Will Slavisa get more time? At least Newcastle lost...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Saturday 20th October 2018, 5:37 PM
 
Einstein’s definition of insanity is what it is. As I posted two weeks ago, Slavisa is the worst combination of naive and stubborn and it will prove to be his downfall as well as our clubs. Said we would know after 45 minutes at Cardiff where we stand. Now we know.

Its now obvious that we are heading back to the championship. What went wrong.The new signings,with the exception of Schurrle,have flopped.Where these players brought in over Slav's head ? Why are we so disorganised ? Surely Slav should be able to drill the team so that we don't look so pathetically disorganised.Even allowing for injuries to Tom Cairney,Alfie Mawson,and Joe Bryan this is totally unacceptable. It is with a very heavy heart that I now say Slav has to go.

Look at the goals surrendered, particularly the Ream error. At a certain point, it doesn’t matter who’s the manager. Players need to be smarter and give the ball away less. Slav isn’t telling guys not to mark their man. This group lost continuity— in an alternate universe with Freddo and Targett, there’s no way we allow 25 goals. So the boardroom and scouting departments need to take some heat as well. A lot of flops so far. I’d give Slavisa till January 1st. The last two seasons of brilliance earned him that.
posted by Drago (Guest) - Saturday 20th October 2018, 5:18 PM
 
I think they are so disorganised because they are not being coached very well. Don’t believe SJ can hide behind his previous claim, that signings were made over his head. These player really do not, individually, look bad, in fact most show real signs of quality. But football is a team game and the coaching is supposed to get these individuals to pool their skills. That isn’t happening, regret you can only hold one person responsible.

3-2 and we don't look like scoring again. Adoi fouls so much, no wonder we keep giving free kicks away. Chambers and Ream are not EPL standard and now our prize, Seri, has learned how to give the ball away on many occasions. I also think Betts was a brainless chicken. We have to play Mawson - give him a chance for a couple of games at least. Can we possibly win 30 points after Christmas with a new defence? I doubt it. What a shambles.

Sorry Slav, you are out of your depth. We need a manager with EPL pedigree. One who can set up a defence. Bring back Roy? Total garbage. Hate to think what end result will be.

Jst saw this with afew (a lot) of scouts from up and down the country. Strong team on paper and lost 3-0 Simple fact is Fulham could not finishAny other day Matt O'Riley would have had 4-6 assists. W Brom forwards were lethal and exposed the defence Sessegnon was v rusty lacking game time Central defenders were too slow TBF WB attacking force was very good. However the positives were midfield build up play was excellent O'Riley Francois and De La Torre worked well together Cisse put a shift in but looked of the pace mentally. I will say apart from a slip at the end O'Riley was a class above the rest. Ive said it before but his vision technique and all round play is way above that of any young player I've seen. I think there were 15-20 scouts and 80% were there to watch him (I know I spoke with a couple).. I think he will be off very soon ..a shame but he needs a higher stage than U23 football. (And all were Premier league/Championship and a couple from abroad). Just had a chat about stats and his completion rate was somewhere near 90% with 8 chances created..unbelievable stats. It also helps when he plays the 8 with someone behind who can feed him.. Final note..Harvey Elliot looked more effective than the other strikers when he came on. A good game to watch with some real talent out there

Cant believe the official sites lack of knowledge and reporting.O'Riley is in the top 3 players in PL2 this season for Passing completion and more importantly chances created..the prob;em we have is without a decent striker (elijah and humphreys both on loan who are good at this level) we cant concert. Fulham are in the top 5 for chances created in total..Sess was very weak last night and Keeper looked nervous..Midfield was excellent with MAtt in particular running it..if we had Burke up front we would have won by a huge margin..mind you he did cost Leipzig 11m!

Just hope that the internationals haven't taken the edge of our top players? Some are back late from the African nations according to Slavisa on FTV. Cardiff will be very physical and we need to defend well from set-pieces and long throws in particular. I hope Mitro is fresh? He always has a good game for Serbia. I am not sure if he had 2 90 minute games? I am a bit nervous about this away game and Cardiff will want it more than us bigtime! I know we have more than enough class to come through this and beat them. We just need to be up to the physical stuff coming our way. Play as we did at Burnley, and that should be more than enough to beat them. COME ON FULHAM!!!

I see we're playing Cardiff tomorrow. Where did that come from? Worrying times, definitely as it's a must win game. Lose, and we're looking at certain relegation unless we stay up. I understand Tom Cairney is out, which means someone will need to replace him. I'm thinking we will lose this game. Just a hunch, but I mean, look at the result again Arsenal. Not to mention, Khan ain't buying Wemblie, so fink dare might be twabble. Hope not!

Both posts make sense but do we have a record of the percentage of games TC was available over the last 3 seasons? His price will certainly drop if he continues to be unavailable. Has his new contract been an disincentive? A pity we can't afford Ramsey from Arsenal. We also have players who will be absent due to the African Nations - how many games will that cost us. If we must have black players there are surely enough from Europe to minimize interruptions in our squad.

He hardly played last season until October and we were flirting near the bottom of the league he returns and we only lose 1 match until the end of the season BUT we are not in the Championship now and things are 100% tougher in the Premiership we can't afford to wait until TC turns up .

According to the Sun, Fulham are preparing a 25 million move for Celtic star Kieran Tierney in the hope of pairing him with Ryan Sessegnon down their left flank... It wouldn't be a surprise to me if we recruited again, and if we do? I would like to hint that Liverpool's 'Nathaniel Clyne' is twiddling his thumbs up there on a cold Merseyside. All this news is hearsay and speculation, and i would just like to say that our current crop of players, including Cyrus Christie, still have ample time to prove themselves. We are still a long way away until the next transfer window and nobody is trying to push these guys out before they prove themselves. Fulham have shipped goals at an alarming rate of knots and we will probably hold the prem record for goals conceded. Time to put it right from now in the next game me-thinks. Clean sheet against Cardiff and a decent win is the tonic we need. We are in the prem now, so we need to go out and earn it!

Money talks MJG, and Chairman Khan has tons of the stuff, especially after pulling out of that Wembley deal. Scottish league is substandard. It would take as much as 25 mill to prise Kieran away from Celtic. A few top clubs here are interested but won't pay that much for him. We might not need him yet if our boys can pull their socks up? Khan is very ambitious and wants big things for Fulham. This crisis will be sorted one way or another, or there will be changes period!

Over the years the Scots have produced many skilled players who have done well in the top English league. Mostly (which I emphasise) the best buys appear to have come from teams other than Celtic or Rangers neither club being willing to part with the kind of money the English have. Choosing a player yet to be seen as a top talent takes a very good scout but FFC did buy Leggatt (to play with Haynes) and he proved to be a very good servant to the club. Not heard much about Tierney anyway, so must agree with MSG. MST as well although I don't know how he can eat his own head - I guess he would have to save his mouth until last.

As much as religion and love of your country come into it, the modern day pro footballer only has one thing they worship on a weekly basis. Cold hard cash. If a Prem lge club come in for Tierney he wont have any choice as Celtic will sell and he must have ambitions after seeing how his compatriot Robertson is doing at Liverpool. Celtic are a massive club in European football but not a competitive club. I dont think he will come to Fulham but if one of the top 6 come in for him he will be gone.

Guy's, i only pointed out some potential targets that allegedly Fulham are interested in? Kieren Tieran from a source,a proper left back age 21. For one reason or another, it has turned into a toxic political mess worse than Brexit. Nathaniel Clyne come up through a computer stat as a potential right back who i think we should seriously look at? Ramsey i suggested, and i think we could make a discreet enquiry in January. As you saw plainly from the Arsenal game that Ramsey still has some quality which we are lacking at the moment. There is still time for our newbies to gell, and i want to see them do the business for Fulham. Seri came up with a wonder goal against Burnley, and i know he has got it in him to do more. It is a mystery why he hasn't launched a few more shots on goal as he did against Burnley? The sky pundits are giving a win to Cardiff, and i know we have more quality and class about us to beat them. Cardiff is a perfect away test for Fulham, and we will see how far we have progressed on from the Championships. Personally speaking, i hope we have a look at Clyne in January, he is a proper right back and he isn't wanted at Liverpool...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Friday 19th October 2018, 11:52 AM
 
Owen, Tierney is not a potential target just paper talk. We read the same dross in the daily papers and on various websites as you. I wouldn’t get to exited about this made up rubbish, let alone post it on here. Odoi is a decent full back who you have championed and argued with other posters about, now you want him replaced in that position by Clyne. We also are aware of the goal Seri scored against Burnley so you don’t have to keep repeating it. Sometimes mate your posts are a bit tedious and repetitive, please try to post fresh stuff.
posted by Fulhamboy21 (Guest) - Friday 19th October 2018, 4:06 PM
 
Fulhamboy, i will try to keep it fresh. Odoi i wouldn't sell him because he is a utility and versatile defender who we can call on to do a job in a few positions. Wasn't Odoi originally a left back in Belgium? Seri i know i repeat his goal against Burnley. I only ask if he can score another one. Seri can have a lot more shots on goal in every game and that is what i am trying to point out. Scuurle does pot shots 24-7. Surely we can encourage Seri to do the same? We play Cardiff tomorrow and we should be encouraging our guys to come out of their shell a bit. If that's boring i give up. (NOT UPSET OR LOOKING FOR A FIGHT,BY THE WAY) COME ON FULHAM TOMORROW, LET'S SEE MORE SHOTS ON GOAL!!!

Our problems did not begin when we started choping and changing Managers, but when we appointed Wroy as Manager. I know he took the club to the Europa League final. A truly great acheievement secured by a half decent team with a midfield leader Danny Murphy and a defence of Hegeland and Hughes who were excellent. BUT MOST damaging thing is he left with our prize possesion Ray Lewington, who not only knew our club backwards - he knew how to win in the Premiership and has experience of doing so and you just have to look at where C Palace are now (I know they are a one man team Zaha. Maybe Watford FC were right to get rid of SJ but he has not had much to work with as I firmly believe we have only four players who any other Premier side would want and that speaks volumes

DISAGREE WITH ROC'S CONCLUSION BUT I AGREE THAT WE HAVE NOT BEEN GREAT IN EPL WITH LEWINGTON GONE. ON THE OTHER HAND, SJ GOT US PROMOTED WITHOUT HIM SO LOOKING AT ROY's ENGLAND AND PALACE, ONE CANNOT ASSUME THAT HE IS THE MISSING LINK. I THINK PARKER WAS A MISTAKE AND SUSPECT NOT SJ's CHOICE. BUT CAN IT REALLY BE THE CASE THAT SJ IS JUST TOO NAIVE TO MANAGE AN EPL SIDE? I THINK IF YOU COMPARE WITH LIVERPOOL AND BARCALONA, SJ LIKES TO PLAY THEIR STYLE BUT, AND THIS IS THE RUB, WE DO NOT HAVE THE PLAYERS WHO CAN MATCH THAT STYLE. THAT IS SURPRISING IF YOU BELIEVE THE PUNTERS WHO SAY YOU HAVE MORE TIME IN THE EPL. I SUGGEST THE STATS WILL SHOW THAT WHEN IT COMES TO GIVING THE BALL AWAY, THAT IS, CANNOT HOLD IT AND PASS TO A WHITE SHIRT, WE ARE PRETTY NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THE PILE.

Time changes even in a few years,give him till Christmas at least,can’t judge him on a few games,a lot of new players couple of injuries our club and football has changed since Roy’s departure,sure he’s a decent mananager but judging him on Liverpool and England he was exposed and proved that he works for a smaller club think everybody needs to calm down and be patient

Away win at Cardiff will do more than calm the nerves for me and all fans. I suspect that a convincing win at Cardiff will settle all nerves of the players also, especially our defence. Were we really the 2nd best team back in the championships last term? I think so, and now we have a chance to prove it. I hate the internationals because this game is so crucial. We have more players on duty than Cardiff will have, and we just need Mitro and co to come back sound. Get over this game with a win, and we can kick on with a lot more confidence. A win is imperative...

I go to Liverpool most years. There are plenty of hotels, large and small in the City Centre. The big expensive one called the Adelphi does cheap crap rooms for tours, going out of there walk towards the centre and there are small hotels above the shops. If you go left from the Adelphi past the kebab shop there is a small hotel, I don't know the prices but they must be alright. The beer is cheap after London prices. I have not had much trouble, I got attacked in a pub once for no reason and then the attacker appologised, said he thought I was drugging woman which was maddness being as I was there with older women, and at Everton someone decided to throw something at us after a game we had lost.

Apologies for starting another discussion on politics to fill the space created by the international break! We voted Brexit Not based on first past the post but one man one vote. As a result the parties were split across the middle. Why now negotatiting and voting on the Brexit deal and what’s good or bad for UK is done by Party?? No wonder why there’s infighting and people like corbyn and Boris are more interested in their personal gain. Brexit is way way more important than politics and parties!!! It will impact, like a war, our lives for many generations to come! Now we are leaving (not what I’d wanted) we should treat this like a WAR and put party and personal interest aside! It’s ridiculous now DUP effectively has the final vote in the deal!! It’s a joke!

My point is not whether we leave or not. I didn't want to leave but decision made and that's it. My point is why party politics come into the negotiation and vote. This is bigger than politics. It's like a WAR. Once we are in - we have to put aside party politics and do what is right for the country and fight together. The way is going we will end up with 25% of what people want. That is, only 52% wanted to leave, with party politics, only half of them will get what they want - that is 26%!!

I’m nearer 80 than 70 and I have children for whom I want a good future. My wife worked for 5+ years in Luxembourg for the EIB, in a senior capacity. We both voted enthusiastically to leave. She was tasked with the job of re- structuring the organisation. They know they’ve got problems but self - interest made it an impossible brief. She tried for many years, to no avail. The EU and it’s various parts is an un- democratic, corrupt and inefficient, self interested gravy train, run by self interested civil servants.....in our opinion. I fully understand why people with perhaps less insight into the workings of this organisation would worry very much with regards to what the future holds for our country. It will not be easy, however I firmly believe we can thrive, after a time, get our country back and our self respect and not continue to be dictated to by these unelected bureaucrats. It wasn’t for us, like many others, a question of immigration, rather the right to deport Abdul Hamza and his ilk when OUR courts decide and not be overruled by the European Courts, in other words to be in control of our own country and our own destiny.

hahaha! Nice one Mike - I especially like the line of your message that says 'it's more complicated than 1st thought.' I suppose if you belived what was initially said by the Brexit side of the debate then, it would NOW appear to be 'more complicated'. Let's face it; you were always told what now appears to be a pack of lies. After all; it was the Brexiteers who said that 'The free trade agreement would be the easiest deal in human history.' It was the Brexiteers who said; 'Getting out of the EU will be quick and easy and that the UK holds most of the cards in any negotiation.' It was the Brexiteers who said that 'Trade relations with the EU could be sorted out in an afternoon over a cup of coffee' and although I could go on; it was the brexiters who said that; 'Within minutes of a vote for brexit, CEO's would be knocking down the German Chancellors door demanding access to the british market'. Since then we have Jaguar Land Rover move to a 3 day working week, there has been a drop in value of our currency; there has been a drop in value of our homes across the country, we have companies already moving operations to main land europe and others exploring the notion of doing so which, what ever way you cut it will impact business negatively. Essentially; the UK is going to be worse off post Brexit than before and it is utter lunacy to push this through. Cheering Brexit (as it currently stands today) and requesting to 'fill in the f-ing tunnel' and other such comments is like watching some one defecate in their own hands and then start applauding a car crash. Each to their own I suppose. Everyone's entitled to an opinion!

Sorry but Staying in the EU so we can continue to exploit cheap labor to do the work we dont want to do is disgusting. We wouldn't need to bring in people to carry out social service jobs if we paid people a decent wage and not able to keep the salaries low by continually bringing in people from poorer countries in the EU. It is short term anyway as once there economies improve and there standard of living increases they wont come here.The Irish used to come in droves a generation ago , Now more people are going in the opposite direction in the last few years.

Departing Europe is the biggest single Foreign Policy blunder any British Government has orchestrated since Suez - it is a vote to be poorer. Pick any timeline you want over the next 10-15 years and we will see where Britain stands in comparison to its European neighbours. Gone are European regional and social funds which have propped up Northern Ireland (the UK government won't be able to invest at comparable levels and may well lead to a resurgence of the 'troubles'); gone is the support for other poorer parts of the UK (most of whom voted to leave!); gone are R+D funds which support British Universities; gone is the Erasmus funding which has allowed so many British students to study abroad; gone is our international influence as France moves into the Foreign Policy space we have vacated; gone is the supply of cheap labour for the national health service (where is the 350m we were promised?) The lies perpetuated by the Brexit campaign were the most shameful I have ever witnessed in British politics. A campaign deviously orchestrated and funded by a group of people - politicians and hedge fund managers - who are rich in their own right; who have financial interests outside Europe and/or seek a deregulated labour market and low benefit economy. Don't worry they will make plenty of money at our expense. This, coupled with Britain's appalling track record of non-commitment to Europe over the last 40 years, has orchestrated a departure which will contribute to our steady decline and may well lead to the break up of the UK as Scotland seeks independence. And all of this is for what? The British economy will be less attractive for foreign investment and our trading interests will be less protected. Food standards will decline and food will become more expensive. And all this fiction about Britain becoming this great global trading hub - look at the size of our market! Sure we can have trade deals with the US for chlorinated chicken or have the Chinese build our nuclear power stations - such arrangements will only be signed if it suits them - do we really think we can compete with these giants? As we become a more inward looking and xenophobic society , there are only losers in all of this on both sides of the channel - sad days indeed!

Bit of a paranoid rant FFC. Unlike you, many don’t want to be dictated to by unelected civil servants in the EU. Understand your arguement but you must understand Brexiteers position. That is, we would rather be masters of our own destiny, richer or poorer. Only time will tell. The majority voted to leave, live with it, or are you another one who fails to grasp the principles of Democracy and dreams of a second referendum? It ain’t going to happen mate. Everyone should respect the result of the referendum, like it or not, and get on working for the common good, rather than bellyaching all the time.

We were masters of our own destiny in Europe - we had the national veto and used it extensively. We had the best membership deal in town: - a massive rebate; opt outs; derogations; - eurobond trading even through we do not have the Euro in the UK and still not enough.

The tragedy is that we will not be masters of our own destiny when we leave - in fact quite the contrary. Bigger nations will bully us into inferior trade Deals. If we trade with the EU (a no brainer since this is our biggest trading partner by distance = about 25% of GDP)we will have to accept regulations imposed upon us by Brussels with no say in the way these are set. How smart is that? Far from regaining our sovereignty - we have given it away! Two further thoughts. The European single market of goods and services was created by Margaret Thatcher who understood that we had to remain in Europe to influence the development of that market. We have now given that away. And, by the way, which was the first nation to sign up to the free movement of people - you guessed it: the UK (Blair!).

I am not a remoaner - I am patriot - these are desperately serious issues and this will have an enormous and detrimental impact on the UK and its future.

Do we want to turn our back on the greatest peace-building project in history? For what? a return to Europe of separate nation states?20th C history may have something to say about that

FFC- Dont waste your time All summed up today by one Michael Caine on Radio 4 this morning: “ I would rather be poor outside the EU , and not rich inside it” With that he pissed off back to Miami where he is now resident apparently. Typical comment from the imperialist past deluded who are not in all honesty going to be around to savour the damage they have dealt to future generations who were not in a position to state their case. 65 million people stood alone on their island pissing in the wind .

@ffc.... now there's an eloquent response depicting the reality of the situation. Brexit is based on emotions. The Remain narrative is based on fact(s)!! Yet, people believe that having a blue passport (Which by the way will be made by a French company) and isolating ourselves represents progress. How on earth did it come to this?

News from a source folks! Liverpool's Nathaniel Clyne is surplus to requirements, and he doesn't figure into Klopp's plans? We are desperately in need of a decent right back, never mind about a left back at the moment. There is no more time for sentiments in my opinion. If we can pick up points against Cardiff and teams like Huddersfield around us? It might give Slavisa a stay of execution! The Fulham board are alarmed at the rate of goals we are shipping against the opposition, and maybe we need to think about our defence? Sorry i have changed my tune a bit now this news has leaked out but that right side is a bigger concern for me now. Arsenal exposed us big-time, and Christie is a liability on that right side. Clyne if we can get him in January will plug that gap, but it all depends if they see it from my point? My opinions don't matter and i am not the manager. If it was up to me, i would also try for Gary Cahill-center and Matt Target-left. That is if things don't work out with our current crop of defenders. We still need a proper holding Midfielder to mix it in there with Seri and Tom Cairney, but all this is my opinion, i am not the manager...

We need To go in for Clyne and Tierney if we can get them!!!!!!

The Mirror declare that “pressure is growing” on Jokanovic after a summer of big spending and that there are concerns within the club that his brand of football is too open. The Mirror say “the club’s top brass are understood to want him to go back to basics, with an emphasis on defending” in order to improve...

Couldn't understand the logic of Gray leaving either, he was part of a good coaching squad the last 2 seasons. Fulham broke something that didn't need fixing.

Apparently, us fans are not the only ones who are alarmed at the number of goals we are conceding, our Chairman and management team are concerned too. I really like Slavisa and I still think that he is our man to guide us out of a sticky situation. That Cardiff game away is the most important game to kick-start our season, and we have to win. Khan has big ambitions to buy Wembley etc, and from the vibes and news i am picking up, it sounds like squeaky bum time for Slavisa. I just hope that we don't pick up any major injuries from these internationals and i hope that Slavisa can pick a back four that can perform and click together. Time is running out and i hope our chairman allows Slavisa more time and patience. We should beat Cardiff, and on paper, we should have the class and firepower from midfield to attack to outdo them. Mawson Ream and co will need to click sooner rather than later. Sorry to be coming on here like this, but we need to get through Cardiff and i feel we can relax a bit. Bournemouth are on a good run and we can't expect to turn up and take points of them, we have to earn and graft for points...

I think it might be curtains for Slavisa now. If he goes? I would like to see Micheal Laudrup back in England and at Fulham. If not him, the Lobster Man could do a job? 'Carlos' Carvalhal' is a touch eccentric,but he is talented. Carlos is available now! Sorry guy's, i like Slavisa, but will he get more time from Chairman Khan??? Does Slavisa have anything left in his locker to pull Fulham out of this? I am doubting this right now...

Don’t see the issue or what all the fuss is about to be honest. The FA didn’t own Wembley stadium until around 1991 in any case. It was rented from a foreign consortium.

Ps I doubt we own Lords or Wimbledon in any case. It seems that some people out there are just waiting to be offended so that they can stand on a soap box. There are much more important things in life than worrying about who owns what. Get over it.

It’s ridiculous comparing Wembley with Wimbledon or Lords, as many more non soccer events take place at Wembley than not. Wimbledon and Lords are almost xclusively used to hold tennis and cricket events

£600 million is a big but Mr Khan will get £150 million by selling The Cottage and wont have to spend £100 Million redeveloping the stadium. So Fulham get a new 90,000 seater stadium for £350 million with loads on extra revenue streams like England games, American Football and concerts. Bargain.

After watching again can’t understand how Christe stayed on pitch can tolerate mistakes but strolling back and not helping defence is a crime in my book would not be happy if winger was doing that but a wing back Other players should of been having right go. Most of us like Sessegnon further forward but he was my man of match

Maybe we should play Christie up front, as after all he did win the goal of the month prize ?

Christie was identified as our weak-link by the Arsenal last week apparently. If correct? they mauraded down that right-hand side knowing that Christie would be caught out of position gallivanting up the pitch. I wouldn't mind his contribution upfield if there was a reasonable end result. Ie, assist to Mitrovic and a goal once in a while. I backed Christie enough times but i admit that he isn't good enough. Goodness knows what the Irland manager sees in him? We might have kept Fredericks. Fredericks could at least dink that ball over and connect with a forward. Christies ball assists goes to nowhere!!!

Fredericks did well for us last season, but thought he was worth higher wages than the club did. Now I wonder if he is happy with more money and hardly ever getting a game at West Ham. He was always on the verge of a red card. and probably knows now that he isn't as good as he thought he was.

Stephen Sessegnon is 18 now, and an England under 19 International. He has a World Cup winners medal He may be a couple of years behind his brother in footballing skills, but surely he must be as good as anybody to be given a game against Cardiff at right back if Fosu-Mensah is still not fit
posted by Bert (Guest) - Saturday 13th October 2018, 8:02 AM
 
Seen him a few times Bert won’t score as many goals as Ryan but fill will become better defender done well in league Cup can’t do worst than Christie did v Arsenal if we were in Championship sure he would be getting games some say if he didn’t get nasty injury would of broken in same time as Ryan. Bit harder putting him in a team struggling in Premiership got to start somewhere
