To Sheri Ojo! Looks like the time off served you well. Well done! Your return has appeared to liven up young Sess as well. Great to have you back!

As there is no chance of getting what we could call a traditional or real championship styled CF before the next window, and assuming that a defeat tonight and home draw next saturday should not take anyone by surprise ,why not take a "nothing to loose" attitude and go out for something exciting.The only 2 big guys available to head the ball in would be Kamara (not up to it) or Djalo (wont be given a chance on any of our 228 corner kicks.)So, If we cant beat them in the air lets beat them on the ground. Our best ball player is Sessegnon. Put him up front.In the middle. His mere presence is enough to pass shivers on any defender.He may be light but miles nippier than most. Mollo on the left wing could be a great assist as he is on the heavier side and if nead be im sure his greenpeace attributes would not be concerned taking all the millwall fans on his own in nead be. Better ideas welcomed.
Replies
Our best all player is Sessegnon?? Are you sure?? He gives the ball away more than any other player and currently holds the Championship record for most misplaced passes. Which Fulham are you watching?

Yes of course I'm sure. Jim, if you insist on writing a response at least make it coherent. You fat your farmers on this all day long, but Sess was our best striker last year and is proving to be the same this year. I seem to remember his younger brother (with the same last name) winning hte World Cup. What does that say?!?!?!

I would like to share with you all a memory, difficult to fully focus on because of the pain of recollection. I was sitting in my Hammy End seat , and the game had been going about 5 minutes when some late comer shuffled along the row and we all had to get up to let him go by. As he edged politely by me, apologising effusively he stumbled and I swear his hand touched my knee. Well, as you can imagine I have been traumatised ever since, and it is only due to the reassurance of knowing I’m in the company of so many other abused victims, and the skillful and kind advice of my no win no fee lawyer that I’ve been able to find the courage to go forward. So, if any of you can help me identify my abuser , my lawyer and I would be most grateful. He was between 5 and 6 feet tall with brown hair, wearing jeans and some sort of top. Oh dear, I get tearful thinking about it its so traumatic and difficult to recall....but then it was 1979.

If you think that, if we do not get this right in the January window any of this current squad will be hanging about you have got to be joking Football ain't like that lads, Crainey, Johansson, Ream, both Sessegon's will be long gone, probably to Tottenham HS. Can't see why the Manager is using Button in goal. What has happened to Tomas Kalas? His confidence seems to be shot as do many of the other players. We must when we take the lead go looking for a second goal. What's the mileage like of our players? Are we becoming just another West Ham United where the players are just turn out there and are strolling through the motions. COME ON FULHAM ........Let's show some spirit!

if we average the same number of points per game for the remaining games, we will finish with 54!! That's only 3 points more than what relegated Blackburn had last season.

If we can match Sheff Utd or Wolves' form the for remaining games, we will get c.80 points which is what we had last season to finish 6th. We've have to avg 2.5 points if we want automatic promotion (yes, that'd be fantasy stuff).

Interesting - however I am optimistic enough to suggest that a positive overhaul come January could result in us achieving mid-table without really challenging for a play-off spot. If we get anything out of the Sheff Utd game we have less exacting fixtures coming up although the local derbies against Millwall and Brentford will show whether we have the guts to slog it out or just fade away.

Fulham supporters have been let down by the owner, management and Head Coach. The absent owner has no interest or love or understanding for football, but worse he employs his son who equally knows little about football but worse still he employs his chum who also knows little about football to recruit players. Additionally, our CEO seems to be rewarded for failure after failure, think relegation, continued poor performance, shambles recruitment not least Magath and Rigg fiasco. But it seems the club culture is so bad that police are called to the ground for fear of threatening behaviour from persons at the club for calling time on Kline’s ludicrous tenure at the club. We have certainly become a comedy club. But we also have a miserable Head Coach, who gives the impression that he would dearly like to be somewhere else, and who could blame him with the clowns in charge around him. But Slavisa knows the score and he has the same team he had last year that achieved a play off position. Unfortunately, Slavisa seems completely incapable of adapting his play and tactics to suit the players he has or to find solutions in games where it requires a bit of tactical skill. Additionally and more of a worry is the fact that his team have deteriorated in performance level, speed of passing shows that. The writing was on the wall from the pre-season, watching a team with no plan B and a plan A that was tired and that everyone had worked out. With these clowns leading our club we are heading nowhere and certainly not to the premier league, you would be deluded to think otherwise based on the experience presented so far. Yes, we might pick up a result here and there but it is going to be a very boring and frustrating season. What a shambles.

The worrying concern about Jok is that he won't be given the players he wants/needs to give us a chance of making the playoffs. I think most fans have noticed he has little enthusiasm regarding the transfer/recruitment policy - a 'what do you expect' face on the touchline that demonstrates the failures of the amateurs above him to recruit fire and brimstone players ready to fight for the club's promotion challenge. And I think it would be disastrous to replace him, because our current squad ain't going to make it under any manager.
posted by stephen terry (Guest) - Tuesday 21st November 2017, 3:39 AM
 
Then he should go. If he is good and in demand he would leave if this is the position. Looks like he has won power struggle within club with Kline going and so will get Jan funds. Problem is set out by voice of reason - no plan B ever. Our passing out game is a disaster and he just carries on - bonkers

Having watched Match of the Day and the Fulham highlights it is becoming more and more obvious that referees will not award penalties for fouls in the area. There were at least six certain penalties, including the one against Sess where he had his leg chopped from under him, and the referee just ran away shaking his head. Linesmen appear reluctant to flag for penalties and I suggest that clubs have the right to have contentious decisions such as penalties be reviewed and, if the referee has ignored genuine appeals he is demoted to a lower division. Most fouls in the penalty area are ignored but when they occur outside the area they are given and, more often than not, a yellow card would be shown.i refereed for thirty years and I am appalled at the spineless referees who ignore the rules.
Replies
As an ex referee of top senior leagues, and an assessor I am also getting furious at some of the poor decisions given by top referees, who are completely ignoring the laws of the game. How many times for example, do you see a penalty retaken after it is scored, when most of the attacking players have rushed into the penalty area, well before the ball had crossed the line. The Crystal Palace match on Saturday, was a prime example. Not only was a penalty given, for a blatant dive, but most of the Everton team had encroached into the area, when the goal had been scored so the kick should have been retaken. Another part of the game, completely ignored, is at throw in. There is hardly a legal throw these days, but I can't remember the last time I saw a referee spot one. How do some of these officials get there ? What is the point of having laws of the game, if they are being ignored so often.
Mind you I always remember a Premier League friend of mine telling me, that there are two ways of refereeing, and that is the right way, or a football league way ! !

Thanks. I'm feeling much better now. I thought I was a lone voice on throw ins and corners being taken legally. You might want to add to the list: yellow card for pulling back not applied timewasting by goalies at goal kicks more than 10 seconds for a goalie to kick blockin a free kick by standing less than 10 yards And finally, why isn't there technology to measure 10 metres at a free kick instead of refs of different leg lengths walking 9 or 10 steps - surely someone can produce a handheld device?

That is why it is inexcusable that new technology, or a challenge system, is not available in this sport....and the reason? Big Clubs gain the balance of benefit of refereeing decisions.

What the football authorities do not understand is that supporters pay to watch the team not arbitrary decision-making by the man in the middle which affects the outcome of games time and time again. There is simply no excuse for ignoring technology --if managed properly it will not slow the game down at all.

Bigboy, wish I could agree with you, but you're looking at our penalty claims through Fulham-tinted specs. I don't want to see our guys doing what that Everton player did at Palace on Saturday, conning the referee and cheating his side a draw. We're better than that.

Through all those terrible performances and bad results you have written novels of positivity. Now we saw an improvement on Saturday , Kline gone , players coming back from injury , young players showing good prospects, I'm hoping a corner maybe turning. January is close, maybe we'll find a little gem who knows.

I thought it was a much improved performance yesterday, we controlled the game for long spells & played all the football. It was great to see Tom Cairney back although he still looks a little way off full fitness. The youngsters also did well, although we missed Johansen I thought Edun did fairly well & De La Torre had a good few minutes had some good touches. With Ojo almost fit & Piazon on his way back, & McDonald to return the signs are encouraging but still a few concerns:- Firstly Rui Fonte continues to disappoint & Kamara hasn’t really impressed me so far. Ayité’s form is erratic. The lack of a real goal poacher is a big concern, & I don’t see Piazon or Ojo in that category so maybe we need to spend some cash in the January transfer window. Secondly, the manner of the goal we gave away with Button distributing the goal to a marked player really worries me because it’s not the first time this has happened this season - surely this must be addressed on the training ground!! Finally, although I am a big fan of the possession & passing game we play, there has to be an end point. There were times yesterday when I was screaming out for us to take a shot but the ball either went sideways or back, & when we did manage to fizz the ball across the box there was no one there for the tap in! So, whilst I can see progress there’s still plenty to work on. The season’s still young so let’s hope our injured players come back with all guns firing, we cut out the silly mistakes, start scoring & winning games again!! COYW

Good post - agree with all you say. The lack of shooting, the lack of fwd movement in the box and the distribution system are all down to the manager. He seems very one dimensional and not open to adapting. I think we need a change.

Phil, How can you say the the lack of forward movement is down to the manager. We don't have a manager, only a head coach who has to work with the players at his disposal. By bringing in Tayo Edun and De la Torre he has shown that he is not one dimensional as you put it, but is trying to find the players who are capable of putting his ideas into practice.

Welshy' give Floydey a break, he has just come back from internationals. I agree johansen, Ojo, kabano, and piazon to come back will bolster our squad. We know Fonte's limitations, and Slavisa did play him a lot deeper on purpose. There was a better balance to our squad in his role, and we were much better than normal...

His contributions are minimal: hold-up play is non-existent compared to Ayite; movement in the box unnoticeable compared to De La Torre; pressurising and tracking back lame compared to Kamara and his first touch and passing are woeful. People can bleat on about him being played in the wrong position, but the style of play we have totally suits the role he was playing at Braga, it's simply that the Portuguese league is heaps slower and not as physical!

Bit more like it first half although think we made fewer chances than normal felt there was a bit more self belief in their play fairness to derby not as defensive as most down here not so much timewaisting either

neither players are regular starters for their new team. Why not put in a cheeky loan bid for them in January?? Those two players and a new striker (not Martin) might get us back on track again! I know this sounds like dream stuff - but you never know!
Replies
John' That is a good suggestion and a good plan. I would have Aluko and Malone back in a second! Football is all about fine detail and fine margins, and the 2 mentioned, has upset our balance and rhythm. Some fans don't realise how much disruption this has caused...

The same old turn out from J/S, once again we take the lead and after half time we blow it , you just know it will happen.We are now just hedge hopping till season ends,we have two players who are just a waste ,no interest whats so ever in FFC,so dump them in Jan.Almost the same mob as last season ,still getting most of the play but toothless.Will S/j last? 50-50, will our chairman get gung -ho?,there is an air of despair at the cottage from players and fans,attendances dropping,plus 18 point from Wolves at the top,how did the bookies get it so wrong.?

No aluko who can't even get a start for a poor reading side and couldn't hit the target last year, no Martin who didn't want to play for us and can't get in the Derby team. No McCormack who can't get anyone to employ him in any of the British leagues. Manager picked the team yesterday and still couldn't find any forward to hit the target and you can't blame anyone for injured players. Other than that I can see your point.

We all know Aluko wasn't a goal scorer, but he was the one that could get past defenders in the centre of the pitch and give others the opportunity to score. Nobody is doing that role this season.
posted by Bert (Guest) - Sunday 19th November 2017, 9:52 PM
 
Spot on Bert. That's why SJ said he didn't want Aluko to leave. It was his contribution and assists, not his goals that made him a key feature for the team. Had we replaced him with a striker who could score, we'd be in a much better position!

Talking to several of our fans on the train on the way home yesterday, it seemed that the general opinion was, that although we are only 6 points off of a play off spot, this season, will be a write off, and a complete waste of what was built up last season. There a far too many games to play before the January transfer window opens, and even if we can attract some decent players into our squad, it will be far too late to make a genuine challenge, as we will be too far away points wise by then. It's a shame, but providing that the club have learned their lessons, and the Khan's back our manager with some real hard cash in the summer, and we buy wisely with JS's choices, then I feel that next season we will be favourites for an automatic promotion place.
Replies
I believe Slavisa has given up on a promotion push this season, and wants to assess the academy lads. He doesn't rate many of the players forced on him in the summer, and as long as we don't get relegated and he is allowed to have a choice on future signings he will stay. He is a good manager, but can only work with the players available to him.

Well done Slav for brave decision yesterday. He never wanted the Kline signings, doesn't think they’re good enough (hear hear!), and to continue on the route we’ve been going is a trip down the pan. He can't sign anyone right now, so he goes with the youth we’ve already got. Edun starts, De La Torre came on, and Sess No 2 and Kait on the bench. And they were good..a lot better than Derby thats for sure. Unfortunately no strikers, so he did the only thing he could there..play the small ineffectual one for some of the game, and the big clumsy one for the rest.

How many more points is Button going to cost us, before JS drops him. We would have won this match comfortably tonight if our keeper hadn't made a terrible roll out, to a marked player. For goodness sake Button get the ball as far away from our goal as possible. Dave maybe a reasonable stopper, but his clearances put us in trouble time after time. Bring in Betts for Tuesday please JS, and then see us win.
Replies
FIRST he made one bad pass to a player. Second he is told to play that way[ like the rest have too]. Third if he plays the long ball up the pitch there is nobody up there. Forth and if you notice the players stand just out side the eighteen box waiting for the ball. Fifth and if the players got on there toes quick enough and get into the other teams aera we might manage to bang in a couple of goals. So stop banging on about the keeper it takes eleven to win a game the other ten have to do there bit as well and at the moment they aint. For the amount of balls that went through there goal line yesterday we should have cape walk it.

It was clearly announced before the game ..when they introduced the memorial band approximately 60 minutes pre ko, and again before the minutes silence, that this was the first opportunity they had to observe remembrance because of the international break, and so they decided to observe it today. Poppies on kit just a minor part of that decision. Seems fair enough.

I know you have an opinion and are entitled to express it, however your understanding of reality appears limited Joxor. The manager has said time and again that his opinion was being ignored by Kline and Khan Junior, and if you are told this is what you have get on with it, then you do the best you can with the resources at your disposal. We do not have the opportunity until January to change the players we have available.

It was a good game and we had plenty of possession as usual. Just not enough bodies in the box area to finish off Derby. Ryan Fredericks had a great game, and rightly MOTM. I can't understand some fans who think he is a 1 trick pony. (Support your team guy's) Okay' it is blatantly obvious that we need a target man to finish off those brilliant moves that we do, it will come in January. La Torre looks really good, and a better impact than edun. That mistake for the Derby goal was so Fulhamish ,but we need to forgive a lapse in concentration now and again. We do create a decent amount of chances but we can't finish them. We shouldn't put any blame on the back 4 or goalkeeper, it is up to the front lads to convert some of those chances begging. Tom Cairney has stated that he is only 75% fit so there is still improvement to come from him. I really thought the internationals would take some edge of the players that played them, and you could see that a little bit. Fulham showed plenty enough that our tick tacky system does work and is the way to go. We just need to finish off teams better from now on. Kamara needs to start concentrating on playing football, because that incident off the ball, could have robbed us a goal? with his off the ball antics. Dennis Odi is the man down that left side, and Sess will do better in games to come. Don't forget guy's that he played for the under 19's international, so forgive him if he lost the ball every now and again. Other than that, i think we did more than okay. Things will get better from now on at the Cottage. We are almost back,,,, COME ON FULHAM!!!

We're goin nowhere, up or down, so let's develop some of our young guys and see what we got for next year. Reminder, because of FFP, we will be selling come January. Got no choice. Thanks Klein.

I don’t think you’re right about FFP though. We only had a £480k deficit in the money we spent on players compared to players sold. So frustrating after all the rubbish we’ve signed and our performances we are only 6 points from the play offs. The league was there for the taking (as Wolves will prove). The board are idiots!

We'll see Terry come January. I think with salaries/expenses vs. revenue we're falling deeper into the red. We already had to serve one transfer ban and that was with parachute payments which we no longer get. The Wolves chairman took the risk and it looks like it will payoff in the end. We took the risk and signed absolute garbage AND let go Aluko and Malone to help finance the signings. I don't see how we can recover this season from a disaster of a summer. But maybe Owen can find some hope and cheer us up.

Reasonable performance today. Should have had a pen or two at the end - foul on Sess and handball. Same problems as anticipated by some of us on this board: No decent finisher - how many crosses just passed in front of goal today with no one to tap in, problems at left back, and no Aluko to create something out of nothing... We are just a worse starting eleven than last year. That being said, props to the kid, Edun, good display, and also to de la Torre, who looked fresh upfront. Best man: Fredericks, a constant threat down the right. Also nice to see Carney getting back into rhythm towards the end of the game. I hope that now that Kline is gone we can sign a "9" who can score some goals, and maybe 1/2 more decent veterans. How we managed to spend ~15m on Abou&Rui is beyond me. If I am Fulham I sell both at a loss. Maybe the kid Soares can also help us on the left to widen the pitch... All in all encouraging and leaves some hope but we really need a striker who knows how to play (Championship) football

Sigh, this was not me. It is copied from a comment I made below regarding Andy Carrol naming his son Wolf Nine. Jeez there are some nutters on this board. Think I’ve had enough, no wonder your moderators have left.

Does anyone know why the official website is harping back to 96/97 season. At first I thought it might be a round anniversary celebration but we are in 17/18 season so its 21 years ago.

Those days are well and truly behind us thank God!!

'96/97 was a disappointing season. Only 2nd in Div.3. Then 97/98 only 6th in Div.2, followed by a reasonable season in '98/99 when we came 1st. It probably went pear shaped after that. As you say, thank God those days are behind us.

Not sure of the connection between the 2 posts . Every team has its share of so called nutters , including FFC . Most Millwall fans are passionate , highly vocal and create a " hostile " atmosphere that is intended to intimidate the opposition . Yes they have a reputation and don't back down when confronted but humour from both sides usually defuses any stupidity . If our fans are up for it , The Cottage should be rocking .

I think we fans should let Derby county know on Saturday they are a sneeky, unprofessional, ungentlemanly, untrusted and basically a cheating club for their way of trying to steal Martin back last season! From their point of view they got what they wanted (unsettled our club) but who knows what could have happened if the Martin saga never happened!! Derby country is a club you’d never trust to leave your wife or sister with!!

My thoughts on derby are more distant than that going back to supermacs. Days in charge and there fans behaviour. And being allowed to get away with it without some sort of punishment ( but it was only little ffc )

You all know where i am going with this one... Seriously guys' have we been sussed? Reading started quickly against Derby the other week, and as far as i see it, that was the difference. A quick start on the front foot is the key to success at Fulham. Fulham have been far too ponderous when building up and going forward from defence. I agree with john's post about Man City playing the same way. A few tweaks here and there in January will bring us back to how it was before Scotty and Aluko left the club. Football is a game of fine margins and detail, and i am sorry to bleat on about Scotty and Aluko going, but these fine details mke a hell of a difference. Okay i agree that Aluko and Scotty are not top top players, but we failed miserably in the transfer market to replace them. Not only that, the quality of replacements were not even uo to their standards! That was criminal from our recruiting team, and embarrassing, to say the least. We can and should do better than that when it comes to transfers. Fulham have a great history for finding gems, but sadly we have them stolen from under our noses for a pittance. We got hammered by Wolves because we were just too lethargic and sloppy. They are a decent side, but if we had taken our chances in that game, we might have nicked a draw. Chances we create in every game, but we don't take them because we are not clinical enough. Fredericks is no Kyle Walker but he is good enough for Fulham. I like Fredericks a lot, and he is still one of the quickest right backs coming forward. Its the left side and Alukos slot we need to sort out. Johansen is missing our anker-man Tom Cairney, that is why he looks a bit dull apart from his free kicks. When Ojo is fit, and when Cainey is finally up to fitness and speed, Fulham will find other ways to cut through on goal. It will be a bit different sraying the ball up to Ojo. I think Slavisa will exploit this system using Ojo, and providing we up our speed in passing up to ojo and the flankers we could still finish on a high. I know it looks a bit bleak now, but Fulham will get better again, and don't forget Piazon? He could be an important part of our season yet. If we are still creating chances? and we do create chances, there is hope. No doubt Slavisa will be drilling the likes of Fonte and Kamara. Afterall, there is a way to go until January, and Slavisa will be aware of this. We have to work with what we've got, and start to take some of those chances we miss, time after time. I sound like an old record repeating....

We keep saying clubs have sussed us out because we are a bit one dimensional. While to some extend this is true but look at Man City. People were saying they (specifically Guardiola) were sussed out last season and their defence looked vulnerable every time they were pressed. So instead of changing the system and tightening the defence, he bought walker where many of the pundits said it’s not a great defender and therefore probably a working buy and overpriced. Look now. Guardiola didn’t buy him to strengthen he defence but to strengthen the attack on the right hand side. And it worked. Not only they concede less goals they are scoring a lot more. Did Guardiola change his plan A?? No! But he khew exactly how to compensate for their weaknesses. We probably don’t need to change the system but just need our wing backs to work even harder and give us more width and attacking options.

Haven't we been doing this with Fredericks? Problem is that he's no Kyle Walker, he's a bit of a one-trick and one-dimensional pony, doesn't have the strength and guile to vary his game. Everyone knows that when he goes on one of those runs down the right wing, it'll fizzle out at the corner flag.

On reading John's earlier post, he listed the team that we put out for the 4-1 away win last season at Huddersfield. It was almost the SAME side we fielded in the recent spanking we received from Bristol City (as you say). The answer is relatively simple; It must be the fitness of the players, so this is waht we need to do .......... ready ....... Bring back Felix and get them all running a marathon just before kick off. Then get a wedge of cheese and stick it on Cairney's knee and Ojo's shoulder. Bob's your uncle...... a 6-0 result in the favour of .......... Derby County ?????? Or just remove Joka and bring in a new man with fresh ideas. Better idea??

the best situation would be if the fans didn't go and we win the game. If we buy away tickets, we're technically supporting the away club. Think about that when you click purchase on the brentford tickets.... of course, we all know showing support helps the team win. Fat people in general. fat food, finger stuffs, and disgusting snacks covered in mayonnaise.

John, I accept you don't want to give money to other clubs, but their supporters do the same when they come to the cottage. Wouldn't football be boring if there was no banter between fans, and players had no support away from home..
