Reasonably ok performances from most of the team, apart from Fonte, Kamara & Cisse who were all poor. As SJ said we lack quality. Poor signings & lack of strength in depth, plus no decent main strikers mean we should expect a mid table finish at best. I understand the owner wanting a profitable investment from his purchase, but the idiotic club management from himself, his son & his sons best friend is beyond the pale.

I have seen a lot of calls for jokonovics head on this board after todays results, and in some points i agree. Wr hve no plan B and look slow and ponderous without cairney. We have no striker and havent rly progressed under sj, with the best defense being we haveny got worse based on results comparative results to last season either. I wld warn against saking him as i think we need proper investment in january to allow him to kick on, we only really came good post jan last year anyway. If we were to secure players of gayles calibre in january it wld be a different story especially with a fully fit cairney. Wld u prefer david moyes, sam alladyce or any of that lot instead. No!!!

We are a bit doomed!! Worse game I seen all season (wasn't at Burton) and the most disappointing thing of all, with all the players fit, we we don't look any better than day 1 of this season. What's going on? We desperately need Cairney back fully fit, Soares fit and a new striker in January. Until we have that, we are going no where!!!

For the record I never moaned. This might be the closest to it and frankly, with the display today, we have every right to whinge that we didn't try had enough and we showed no progress!

Well the journey and the weather, were far worse than the way we played. Very late back after visiting friends on the way home in Banbury. Reflecting on the match, we were not at our best, but some of our football was still quite delightful, but our cutting edge seems to have disappeared. When I hear that Huddersfield had beaten Manure United, Newcastle had beaten Palace, and last night Brighton had won at West Ham, it really makes me angry. How come that last season we did the double of both Huddersfield and Newcastle, and we were a much better side than Brighton, despite losing to them twice. All of those sides have gone forward, and good luck to them, and we have slid back badly. Could it be that we have found out that Joka is not up to the job after all. It is not desperate times, as we are still only a few points from a play off spot, and we all know that those in that position at the moment, will not end up there, but a real shake up on the field is required for a start, and Betts must be returned to goal, as although Button does make a few good saves, his distribution put us in trouble time after time. Winning our next three games will put the faith back, but anything less than 9 points will be a big worry.

There has been some right funny results in the championship this season. If the likes of Cardiff can get beat buy Birmingham? and there has been other funny ones,we can't give up on our team and manager! There is nothing we can do about our group of players we have at our disposal until the January window. Believe me, our boy's won't need telling how bad a performance that was, and i think they will want to put that right starting at home to Bolton this coming saturday. Tom Cairney is still not 100%, and he can't do it on his own. That means the new guys will have to step up, or go back into nothingness! Another big worry for Fulham, is the injury to Johansen, and we seriously need him fit! We are normally a team brimming with confidence and flair, so playing out from the back is not a problem, if we show more self-belief. Let's forget Villa, and take them down back at the Cottage! Bring on Bolton and put right the wrongs...
Replies
Problem is our next game is always the game that will turn the season around.... until we concede early or throw away 3 points conceding a late equalizer, or playing poorly and getting soundly beaten, or playing very well and dominating but failing to score or falling to a stupid goal...the ways we conspire to lose points is so varied that you wonder whether that's what we actually train for. You just can't know how we will lose points in any one match. Then once in a while they throw us a bone...a win here and there... Then as we begin daring to dream....a defensive blunder and normal service is resumed.

He says We did not have enough quality and not brave enough playing out from the back .He complains when we start to play a long ball, but cant understand why teams play the long ball against us successfully.Time he was honest with himself.Most of our problems are his fault not the players.
Replies
Agree with you JOXOR; it beggars belief, he doesn't understand why the players are getting nervous playing out from the back, surely he sees the opposition pressing us, surely he understands he needs to train his players to provide three options everytime (otherwise we will get chased down), surely he understands a safe out ball should the pressing become difficult to manage. And, surely he understands it is challenging to play this tactic when the goalkeeper is not comfortable on the ball and invariably does not create options or angles. Seriously, what a dog's breakfast and the blame lies firmly with the Head Coach.

Not being funny but we narrowly lost today. This league is the most unpredictable and best league in the world. Anyone can beat anyone and I expect alot of chopping and changing as the season goes on. Other teams around us will get injuries and lose their best players as we have early this season. We are only 3 points off the playoffs and lost to an improving villa side today who are right up there with us. Moaning about the manager isn't going to help. There is a long way to go and until we get cut adrift from the playoff pack I for one will still believe we will be in the mix come the end of the season.
Replies
I will go along with you TJ' This league will be topsy-turvy for a while before it settles down. I am not giving up on Fulham pulling the season around just yet! My look on it is, the likes of AK47, fONTE, Ect have up to the jan transfer to show up! I don't know what has happened to mollo? but the new guy's need to prove they are better than the likes of Aluko ect. What happened to 'Soares'? this new left back tp replace Scotty? It has been a comedy of errors at Fulham, and personally, i would buy back Scotty, and Aluko.. It is pointless Fulham taking corners at the moment because there is nobody in there to make a difference. We might has well get Cameron Jerome on board for the corners. These new guy's need to step up for sure, i am running out of excuse's defending them!

it's not just about today!!!.....I am looking for progress from last season and thinking are we going to improve going forward to the level we all expected....no it's not going to happen with Joka.

Tj you were probably one of the supporters wanting Jol to stay on when it was clear he was well past his sell by date and totally out of solutions (even by his own admission, as he stated in an interview a couple of years ago)....Joka is the same, totally clueless in finding solutions, we are going the same way....but I agree that finding an alternative Head Coach might not be easy but that's not my job that's the club's and I don't have any faith they would get that right.
posted by Riverside (Guest) - Saturday 21st October 2017, 6:33 PM
 
Jokanovic's job is to coach the players he is given, and to make the best of what he is given. Have to admire Warnock getting such a good tune out the players he is given...which are, on paper, far less quality than ours.

Based on what I have witnessed this season and the lack of progress and the complete ignorance in dealing with opposing team’s tactics perhaps Joka should be sacked. He has a decent squad (albeit poor options at centre forward) but has not improved the team, he has had enough time to improve things but appears totally incapable of doing so. Of course, if Joka leaves then who do we get, perhaps that is a bigger question but does not hide the fact that Joka has not improved the team this season. I understand the points earned against last season but we need to look at what we are watching and just to add we will not go on a run like we did last season. Poor season....mid table at best if we stick with Joka.

joka didnt pick the players we got in and he openly said not 2 sell aluko and malone , but blame him anyway , when last season we looked unplayable , cairney problem isnt helping but he would have been sold if fit i reckon ,

Sadly, Joka does appear to flatter to deceive. I genuinely thought we were going places this season, and am left wondering exactly what has gone wrong. Yes, we’ve had injuries, but we don’t seem to have recovered from our woeful preseason preparations, which must be the responsibility of the Head Coach. Unfortunately, I’m not sure what comes next, but it’s looking increasingly like the future won’t feature Joka

What comes next is more of the same. The players are as good as any in the league(apart from Button) its just that Our manager is stubborn, predictable and worst of all boring.He needs a rest.

I agree JOXOR everyone can see it except our Head Coach. Even the pundits and reporters are beginning to see that we are just a one trick pony; Gentleman Jim says at the end we might need another option....hang on this should have been planned before the season started....no, it should have been in place at the end of last season, we might not have lost to Reading!! Joka has had plenty of time, quite frankly I find him infuriating.

What do we do in training? We train in all the various ways we can lose 2 or 3 points. Ranging from playing badly, dominating but not scoring, defensive mistakes, wasting chances, yes...even missing penalties. We have tried everything.

The Gaumont was called the Red Hall and the men's outfit shop was not opposite the cinema, the church was, but 50 yards further down just past Farm Lane. The shop was owned and run by a short Jewish man named Phil and an ex Army friend of mine, David Pinfield, used to assist him. The Broadway cinema was further down next to Walham Green Station and was known as the "Bughutch". You had to produce your Identity card to get into an adult film. Remember seeing the French film Clochmel, probably spelt it wrong, in 1952/3. There is still a cinema on the same site called the Vue which I believe is a Morden multi screen job. Sorry to bore all you youngsters.

Tomas Kalas has spoken on the forum- If we really do what we can do, then we're one of the best teams-or the best team in the league... Now, that is some quote and a half, and i too really believe we can be the best in this league. There are a few stipulations to this bold statement, and one is we need to play and show much more confidence in our abilities. We have the opportunity to showcase much more of what we are about tomorrow at Villa park. If we truly want to make progress towards the premier league? Fulham will have to exploit those nice wide and open spaces on a pitch that is supposedly catered to suit us. I watched some highlights of Villa last week, and i can't remember the winger? who absolutely skinned John Terry. Now hands up all those Fulham fans that are saying that we have too many wingers and small people? I have seen footage of our boys training, and our flank players i feel will have an edge in this Villa game. Steve Bruce has ask his team to give him a win against us, but like Kalas say's, play to our talent and capabilities, we will win tomorrow. I think all those near misses and hitting the bar and posts, is a timid and tepid lack of our true character. Confidence is a sure thing when we can start to convert 50 per cent more of our chances we fluff. Fulham just need to start our games stronger and finish them even more stronger....

Ross will look at tomorrow's match and wondered how things can go horribly wrong for him!l so quickly! slavisa offered to build a team around him but he turned it down, thinking Villa is a bigger club! He turned down Bruce's offer of a kiss and make-up! 14months later, instead playing for either one of strongest two teams in the championship, he is playing third rare football in sunny Australia. Melbourne would struggle against most league 1 teams in England. Personally I think it's really sad as I can't think of another (£14m) player fallen this far in such a short period.

There was a barbers shop opposite St Johns church, where Dawes Road intersected North End Road, run by Harold. Always had my hair cut there in the 1950's. Imagine that has long since gone. It was next to a pie and mash shop where an attractive blonde girl use to assist. Any of you older members remember?

We must have shared a seat Bigboy haha. I remember the men’s clothes shop opposite the Gaumont, where I used to buy the latest threads, was I cool?....not, thought I was, but alas. Ahh, the Gaumont, fond memories of the back row and remember a bit of a disturbance during Rock Around the Clock. I was a choirboy at St John’s, got well paid for it too, particularly weddings.

You got it Bish. And yes the Bug Hutch down the side of the Hibernian and station. But what was the cinema back of St John’s, in I guess Vanston Place called, I had it as the Gaumont. Obviously my memory has let me down again. Do remember it was the Regal left off Fulham Road heading for North End Road. Thinking about it I probably haven’t been round that area for maybe 40/45 years.

The whole Sessegnon saga is worrying me, there is no doubt the lad is a very good prospect for the future and every time he has a bad game we are seeming to jump down his throat. Maybe this is a prime example why A player with his talent should move to a bigger club with better players to enhance his development, rather than keep playing for a club that needs wins to survive. Take the 25 Million Fulham and spend it on some ready made players on there way down the footie ladder.
Replies
I don't agree. If he were to go, it would be to a premier league team possibly Spurs. I can't see him replacing any of their first choice players, so he will. either be sent out on loan, play with their youngsters, or maybe even occasionally be on the bench.

What makes a good or brilliant manager?how many managers drift over here from continent for a few seasons and actually make a bigger name for them selves?.Luck, money,some coaching skills,? remember most team work outs are by the coaching staff, the manager is often else were.Why do we not deliver any more in Europe,Fergy did it all on the home front after a few seasons and a couple of euro wins,Ranieri did it by luck and a full moon,Klopp what is he about ?some one once said any one can win the prem with enough dosh the manager is just a name on a bit of paper,so English manager do nothing when they work abroad,no manager seems to make any thing of the England set up british or other wise.Love to see a top euro manager take charge of, say Stoke or WBA,, say Pepe or Jose, see how good they are as coaches.
Replies
I think you will find all but a very few are actively involved in the everyday training, coaching and tactics. The days of Fergie just turning up to the training ground for an hour are gone. The reason why hodgson and Wenger are still around is because they are still heavily involved in the coaching and training plan. Klopp is definitely a manager involve in all coaching details. So it isn't as much luck as you think but neverthess, the fact you can be considered a great coach one week and not so great the next (e.g. Mourinho) suggests to me there's a bit of luck in their job!

We have to be quick and accruate against a Villia side marshalled by the now aged John Terry. From a Villa fan I know he tells me that the team has been far too static this season. If Tom Crainey plays 90 minitues I would guess a 1 -2 scoreline in our favour. Come on FULHAM

I can see another draw looming, but that will depend on those 50-50 chances that both sides will have. Our away form is good enough to reach parity with any side in this division, albeit Villa will want to make amends for their latest defeat. This season our defence is looking good, but our attack lacks the penetration of last, and if Cairney is sidelined again, I reckon we'll do well to gain a point. Okay, 1-1 this match.

Harsh or a taste of his own medicine? Normally, I'd feel sorry for a manager getting sacked on the basis of a poor run. But in this case, I am on the fence. Its still not clear to me what part Shakespear played getting Renieri sacked last season? The most ridiculous sacking in the history of football managers! The fact Renieri never wished him the best or thanked-him suggest to me he thinks Shakespear played a role in stabbing him in the back. If that's the case, I do not feel sorry for Shakespear at all!

I only mention it because with injuries and not a lot of traffic in the last window we need at least a couple of players , there has still been talk about us and the proposed purchase of Dwight Gayle for £15 million. Surely this is no longer the case as he cant get a game at Newcastle who need goals themselves. Which seems odd ? also could we try something totally different like buy a CF who is has a bit of height ? If we have this amount of money why didn't we go for Chris Woods ?

I’m afraid that the transfer window is a terrible time for clubs like ours, a time when we struggle to keep hold of our better players, and find it almost impossible to buy a player of a reasonable standard, without overpaying. Worse than that is that we cr-p ourselves until the final second, when the window shuts
posted by Rm (Guest) - Tuesday 17th October 2017, 4:04 PM
 
January is a long way away, and i think there is a lot of time to access a few of our start of season transfer buys. There are 2 guy's who go regular home and away to all the Fulham matches, and if anyone is interested in their opinions on our current squad? please tune in. Gentleman Jim and jamie ohara think that we have a lot of strength in depth in our squad, more so than last year. What has hindered Fulham this season is injuries to key players like Cairney and piazon, and other minor injuries to others in-between. The new guy's are still gelling and it has been an unsettling period with stop start internationals ect. I am eagerly waiting to see Rafa Soares the left back, and if he is any good? Ryan Sess will be the beneficiary. Fonte is working hard and he needs to score some goals, and i am still hopeful that AK47 Kamara can build on his 2 goals so far. I am certain that if we fail to score goals between now and the jan window, Slavisa will revert to a plan B, and draft a big target man in. Has i write this, they have sacked the Leicester manager who haven't won in 6 games. I think we have done well considering injuries ect, and apart from that defeat to Burton, i am happy. Yes' we have dropped points to some strong teams which on reflection we could have beaten, but i say give it time. I want to enjoy xmas yet and some more football. I've not seen enough of Cisse, AK47, SOARES ECT. The way how the Xmas calendar has worked out, for me i have 16 days off,and the only thing i am thinking about, apart from Fulham winning, is Mince Pies and watching 'ELF' The jan transfer window can wait!!!!!

I go to watch a good flowing game of football, luckily enough the football in front of us is appealing on the eye... BUT I cheered and screamed when we equalised, not because we had salvaged a point from PNE but because had they just played properly and the way they did for the first half hour instead of resorting to the most blatant time wasting tactics ive seen for ages PNE would have beaten us on Saturday. Why do teams and managers resort to such stupid tactics, inviting the ref to add on 5/6 minutes. Then have the nerve to suggest the ref added on too much. The CB time wasting with a minute to go got exactly what he deserved and im glad Mcdonald told him so as he ran past him. Why invite so much added on time, play the game properly!
Replies
Agree that blatant time wearing is most annoying as is diving ", Never a penalty" say Arsenal." Definitely was" say Watford. These pen decisions are of massive importance for all teams wether you at the top or the bottom Accepting the fact that many of these divers would be gold medal material at the Olympics, do we feel that instant replays would help- or any other suggestions?

Presume if they had not wasted so much Time they would have won maybey their manager should tell his players to play the game properly instead of moaning about the opponents scoring in the 96 th minute personally I would have added another 5 !!! Maybey it's time for the time be stopped for injuries and subs on a master clock ( mind you I might get a parking ticket )
posted by Len (Guest) - Monday 16th October 2017, 5:07 PM
 
Agree time wasting is frustrating but PNE were not the worse but in a reversal situation, we'd probably do the same. Ultimately, as long as the ref is taking all into account, as he did on Saturday, I am fine. The ref is entitled to add injury time within the injury time so I don't know what Alex Neil was whinging about!
posted by John (Guest) - Monday 16th October 2017, 5:36 PM
 
Mr Wenger is worse than a cry baby, he should be setting an example, not critising the Ref! When will players play to the whistle, I am well aware that Ref's get things wrong, something to do with only being human. Wenger should be reported to the Leage for his treatment of the Ref. How long he stays at Arsenal they will never complete as they did in the Tony Adams, Steve Bold and Thiery Henry period of the invincibles. Fact.

It was frustrating watching PNE's time wasting tactics, but we'd have done the same. But the referee gave added minutes, which worked in our favour. I quite enjoyed the antics of their court jester, and Ronaldhino lookalike, Daniel Johnson.

You pay your monety to watch 90 minutes for football and that's what you should get. I reckon they should use the rugby/rugby league system where the ref signals time on and off. The ref is still in charge but he doesn't have to constantly look at his watch as the clock ticks down. It porbably won't do away with time wasting altogether but it might go along way towards the guesswork that annoys fans and managers alike at the moment.
posted by Hints (Guest) - Tuesday 17th October 2017, 6:40 AM
 
Bacchus is right, seem to recall Bettinelli has been guilty of serious time wasting. Can’t remember the game but was even booked for it. Annoying, but I guess inevitable, you just hope the ref. takes account of it. He did on Saturday and it worked, albeit would prefer the game flowed as time wasting must have a detrimental effect on the team pressing. How about a socking great clock for all to see, independently controlled by an official time keeper? Can’t really be booking and sending people off, or can you?

MST - While I understand your worry regarding Tom Cairney. If he didnt play on Sat we would have lost the game. When he started the second half he was the one that got passing game going that we seem to love from last season created alot more chances. The fist half performance was awful couldnt string two passes together. I rather have Tom playing on one leg than not at all !!

Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. Knee injuries can easily develop into career-enders if recovery is rushed.

Quite right rushing Tom back before his knee injury is completely healed is a risk which should be avoided, but FFC are not a one man band surely the other players in the team should take on more responsibity. How about getting our Marcus Betonelli back in goal? Would that help?

Tom Cairney was interviewed on FT, and he talked about his knee. Apparently, he still feels some sort of pain in the knee, and he hopes it will clear up sooner rather than later. It does sound like Tom is very frustrated about his season, and you are right in your concerns Arozonian, it sounds like a case of not rushing back! I just hope Tom did not take any notice of some negative reviews on here, when some thought he was wanting away? If there is sensation in his knee? i am concerned. I think he needs to be very careful about coming back too early....
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Monday 16th October 2017, 8:10 PM
 
Not sure anyone noticed at the end of the PNE match, TC was on the floor holding his knee in agony. He struggled to get up for a minute until one of the players literally pulled him up. It didn't look good. Probably explain why TC was so much more energetic and effective in the first 20mins than the last! Suspect he still needs pain killer to play. The fact they couldn't figure out what's wrong with him after 4 months is also very worrying!
posted by John (Guest) - Monday 16th October 2017, 8:19 PM
 
The specialists will know what the problem is but painkillers and cortisone merely mask the injury at significant risk to the recovery process. What's best in Cairney's interest and what's best in the club's interest may not coincide.

Estcourt Road, memories memories. I went to St Thomas's School which backed onto it and I had an uncle and aunt who lived there in the 40's and my brother in the 50's. I left the school in 1947 to go to the Oratory in Stewart's Grove, Chelsea. Like most Fulham boys I played football and cricket on Eelbook Common upto 1954 when I went into the Army. Fond memories never forgotten and I wonder if the caged red surface football area is still there.
Replies
It was definitely there until the late 60s, can’t vouch for it after that but bet it was still there into the eighties. Remember one night having a kick about over there, must have been late 50s, when we became aware of a very large number of Teddy boy types milling around. Next thing we know the place is an absolute battlefield, bicycle chains, socks with sand, the lot. We left!! not sure what happened to the ball. Fulham Chronicle reported there were 200/300 lads beating the crap out of one another. Think it was West Ken and Wandsworth Bridge Road lads. Happy days:)) I was still in short pants!.......facilitated rapid leg movement.

Blimey, another Oratorian. We might get a team up yet. As to the Eelbrook Common pitch it seems from Google Earth that it and the playground have been remodelled.

Whilst I don’t think Sess is a bad player by any means I do not believe he is any kind of prodigy, and in fact, I don’t think he is good enough to start for Fulham in any position. At left back he is a liability but he is a young lad with a lot to learn and in my opinion definitely not as good on the wing as Ayite, Kebano, Mollo, etc either. He is definitely no Gareth Bale to whom I have read him compared and in my opinion he needs to go back to the U21s for a while when Soares is ready to start a game. I wish I could see what others see in him and although he probably does have great potential, a superstar he is not in my eyes. If we get offered silly money (£20m+) for him in January, we should let him go and use the money to buy some experience in defence and maybe one more striker
Replies
Don’t agree MST. I’d put money on him leaving us for, say,£15m, and us bleating in 2 years time how we were robbed, when his value soars to £50m

MST, disagree! He is 17 years and 4 months old. Tell me a player out there at his age who can play like he does and able to look himself in a league as physical and as many players who want to kick you off the pitch! None!! He's not really a defender but put him in left wing, he is already showing some class, and he's crossing is fantastic and natural! He's not worth £50m but in the current market, many clubs would take a £30-40m gamble on him. He is good enough to start from my point of view!

I would have been happy to see us take the money Bish I know he is only 17 but although I don’t think he’s a bad player, I don’t see anything special and he has cost us a few goals already this term. There are better players in our squad who play the same positions Sess can so in my opinion either sell him or put him back with kids of his own age to develop.

Leave him alone,he made a couple of mistakes maybe not a natural left back by the time he's 19/20 he will be a massive talent probably won't peak until he's mid twenties then he'll have so much experience who knows his value? In this market anything is possible !!

Leave him alone?? Mike whilst I respect your right to an opinion, I make a reasonable financial investment in the club each season and I believe that gives me the right to express mine as well. You don’t have to agree with it of course but that doesn’t mean it should suppressed ;-).

The problem is like the dilemma for keen students of the turf. You get a 2 year old that looks a world beater and gets put away for the winter with great expectation and comes out at 3 and hasnt ‘ trained on’. Thats my fear with Sess, even in these crazy times should someone offer £20 million + at year end with a lease back till season end I think we should seriouusly consider it, and reinvest the money in a decent centre forward and keep in FFP Anything could happen to him in the meantime with injury - a question who would we have missed most this season him or Cairney? had things been reversed. All this talk about a future £50 million player is just that, he stayed this year because his patents figured that at 17 years of age was the thig to do having seen so many other kids go and sit on the bench. The current situation suits all parties, he is allowedvto grow into an afult, the club have him signed so enhancing his value next summer ( when he will go) Enjoynit this season for that will be all it will be.

If i was involved with the Tottenham hierarchy, reading this, i would come in at a lower offer for sess! Instead of the 40 odd million that i might have paid? you guys have convinced me to pay lower! Celtic made a killing out of Dembele, so i LEVEY will pay 1/2 million for sess!!! Why do we do this here? I honestly think that sess will tick again maybe when rafa soares plays at left back? and ryan is playing further forward. This new plan will take time to gel just like everything else. Ryan Sess played brilliant at newcastle last season, but scotty was behind him. We need these new players to come in and gel quickly. It isn't happening quick enough and there are reasons for this. We have had 2 internationals/ 1 broken leg/ More injuries more than ever/. We have to face facts here, and the fact is, it is taking longer and more time is needed to gel this fulham team. In the meantime, we ain't doing too badly at all, drawing is better than losing, and we havn't lost that many.

Owen I respect your posts but what you have written above is daft on two fronts.

~ No club decides who to buy and how much to pay based upon a fans forum.

~ £40m (or any number come to that) for Sess is fake news. Nobody came in for him, it's all paper talk and the TV sensationalizing everything as always.

I'm sure you are not really that naïve ;-))

He is real quality and we are lucky to have such a talent at our club for however long he is there. He is a real threat down the wing and creates a good number of chances for others every game. He is head and shoukders above the likes of kebano,ayite and fonte in my opinion. To talk about soares being a better player than him does not make sense given that he has not played a game for us yet. We have developed a number of quality players in the academy over the last few years and we should appreciate them while we can. The last academy player to really break before then was sean davis under micky adams and that was a long time ago.

A lot of blarney on my part about the fee's MST, i think i was trying to say, some of our fans are talking his value down by quoting 2 mill? 5 mill? ect. Even if sess isn't worth 50 mill? I am still saying 50 million in the hope of getting the maximum! Fulham was seriously short changed around the fee's for Dembele, and maybe we couldn't do anything about that deal.
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Monday 16th October 2017, 8:25 PM
 
Fulham could have got a better deal for Dembele if they had been prepared to sell him. Spurs apparently offered 5 mil, but Fulham wanted to have him back on loan, which Spurs declined. Fulham kept him till his contract expired. Maybe his goals helped us stay in the Championship. we'll never know, but If so, it was worth it.

Thanks to stubby finger Moderator deleting my original post,as it was offensive, because it mentionied when England had a great side due to our layers proud to wear an England shirt. I started supporting Fulham in 1942 and was priviledged to watch many of the top players who would guest for teams whilst serving in the forces, in my humble opinion the 1966 team achieved what we are unlikely to witness again as we had players who believed it was the highest honour possible to wear an England shirt and were managed by Alf Ramsey who was our greatest ever manager. However, I believe the 1970 team was our best ever national side who were unfortunate in an extremely challenging environment where the "gods" conspired against us. The strange incident if Bobby Moore's arrest on some trumped up charge and the loss of the world's greatest goalkeeper just before our quarter final game against Germany. Some commentators blame the manger for making the two substitutions when leading 2-0. However, the blame was due to Peter Bonnetti, who had not played a competitive game for two months, who made two serious mistakes. allowing Germany to take the game into extra time and, as they say, the rest is history.

Bigboy, I agree with everything you say. Your Fulham support puts mine to shame, I didn’t “join” the club until I went to Henry’s Holiday Camp which, one, enable me to visit the Cottage each lunch hour and to have the privilege of knowing George Cohen, he was our School Captain and we were seriously proud when he was signed by Fulham. We used to be welcome at the ground and chatted to players, all approachable and regularly sat with Tommy Trinder and discussed football or his career. Golden days of football, when you were proud of your club and country and players were in the main home grown, if not local and stayed longer than a season or two. Different world really. Think we were very lucky to live through that period. Thanks for the post, nice to know there’s one of the old school out there who feel the same as me.

Just watched the program for the first time in months/years! It will probably be another few years before I want to watch it again! It's so boring and you are not watching anything you couldn't watch online on sky sports already. It would be more interesting if they show replays of goals and maybe in slow motion and even better if they analyse the situation. I have no tv production. Knowledge but it doesn't take a genius to make the program a little bit more difficult exciting and value added. It's a bit like reading the weekend league report in the guardian newspaper, which is absolutely rubbish as it simply reporting on the scores. Tell us something we don't know! In the new age of media and internet, none of these cheap and lazy broadcasting and reporting is good enough!! We want analysis, expert opinions and facts.

Have to agree. Presenters are useless and the woman? This programme should be for adults, preferably male. Put it on at 5pm weekends. The kids might enjoy it.

Preston nullified our tactic far too easy....it was embarrassing to see our team so inept. And let's be clear many of us predicted and keep predicting this problem. Joka has to take responsibility if he wants to play from the back he firstly needs a decent sweeper keeper who can play the ball with his feet. Secondly his team needs to work far harder in creating options for the person on the ball....at least three every time. Yesterday we had one option at best and sometimes none....disgraceful. Alex Neil made it very clear in his pre match interview how he could stop Fulham playing so it was no surprise to see his teams first half performance....Joka stood and watched. Now to be fair he changed formation second half and Cairneys introduction was crucial because he gave us a second option to get out...Preston tired as I thought they would. McDonald was superb yesterday and Rui Fonte worked hard. Credit the spirit in the team but surely we need to question such a woeful but predictable first half performance....Joka needs to get this sorted through routine training....he knows teams will press us so when we are under pressure we need five minutes of keep ball just to take control back...players need to relax we are the home team....plenty to work on but hopeful with Cairneys back we might improve.
Replies
I agree with some of what you write Riverside but I was trying hard to analyse the game as it went on yesterday. What I saw was two or three Preston players putting our player with the ball under pressure but what that meant was there was space outside of the confined areas we were trying to work within. Our players did not move well enough off the ball to create that “out ball” situation of which you refer. In addition we did not put their players under pressure when they were in possession and this enabled them to play around us. In the second half Cairney created the space with his movement as did Mollo when he came on and we played higher up the pitch meaning Preston got deeper and deeper into their own half and with the penalty box so crowded a goal due to a defensive mistake or penalty was waiting to happen and that is exactly what did happen. We have to create more movement off the ball and put the opposition under more pressure when they are in possession when teams come to stop us playing. This is why we are more successful away from home most of the time because teams take the game to us allowing our creative players more time on the ball. That’s my theory anyway ;-).
posted by MST (Moderator) - Sunday 15th October 2017, 10:21 AM
 
Not sure I agree completely MST. What I saw was PNE taking the game right to us at home. They were quicker and more committed in the area between our box and the centre circle. We played it at a laborious pace putting extra pressure on ourselves as well which led to losing us the ball in very dangerous areas. Only when we managed to get the ball wide quickly did we look like making a break, but this then also provided them with the outlet to counter attack. Johanson was either stifled or exhausted from international duty because he was next to useless in the first half and Ayite seems to have an unnerving talent for finding blind alleys. I feel sorry for Fonte, I think he's a gifted player but we don't play a system that allows him to show his best.
posted by Hints (Guest) - Sunday 15th October 2017, 10:52 AM
 
I think it's easy to criticise Fulham for not winning. We sometimes think we have the best team in the championship and therefore we should win every game. The fact is we have a great team and a great manager playing great football but we are not the best team. Preston with many unknown players are just as good as us in many areas. They press well. They look dangerous when attacking. They handled the onslaught from Fulham we shape and composure. They are clever and play to their strength on physical side of the game. They are a very good team. So let's give them some credit and in turn Fulham some credit for coming back from 2 nil down to grab a point in the very last second. The point is, a point was a decent result for Fulham yersterday.

Agree with a mixture of MST and Hints...good analysing MST it's good to know some look beyond the superficial. And Hints you are correct we played the ball far too slowly (a problem we have had all season). Preston worked so hard to press the play, they were quicker and stronger than us, they completely rattled us and it seemed we had no answer for them. They were a better team than I thought they would be and credit to them, but we will face better teams and we need to sort out our home form...the annoying thing is most of us could see this coming so why can't our manager? I know I go on about it but Joka has to take responsibility, he turned things around yesterday (just) but we lost another two points! Ps real Bishop, Preston played for time yesterday and it cost them, they were a physically strong team that's what you would expect from a professional team. I've not seen an out and out dirty team this season and that includes Cardiff.

I agree with a lot that has been said in previous posts, but I have not seen any critical comments on Button putting our defence under pressure by his playing sideways passes from goal kicks. I believe most opposition managers are now telling their forwards to close him down quickly and its working.
posted by Ken.H (Guest) - Sunday 15th October 2017, 12:48 PM
 
Ken...I think some of us have been very critical of Button, not least he is not a sweeper keeper, which is what you need to play this type of football. Just watch a good team playing out from the back, the keeper is changing his position constantly from one side of the pitch to the other, covers twice the distance than a normal keeper and crucially they are as good as most outfield players and playing a pass. This is, of course, why Guardiola got rid of our England keeper, Hart doesn't cover the ground and can't hit a pass to the quality that is required. That said, we have Button and the players need to make life easier for him, yesterday players were nervous receiving the ball in challenging positions. And, when Button hits long it is with no accuracy and even if he did we have no out ball or target man. This in a nutshell is the root of our home problem.
posted by Riverside (Guest) - Sunday 15th October 2017, 1:56 PM
 
There are some good footballing sides in the championship now who can pass and carve most teams open. I wonder how the Cardiff fans are thinking after that friday night result against birmingham? It happens to the best of us, and maybe we are being a wee bit too critical of our team at this stage of the season. We didn't lose, and we pressed them well 2nd half. I still say we will be up there in the mix jan onwards. Wolves beat Villa with a fantastic player by the name of Jota, on loan, would you believe it from Athletico. The championship will go down to the wire with hopefully fulham in the mix. Tom Cainey is well on the way back, but we must get the likes of mollo, Rafa soares, AK47 Kamara, ect up to speed, and more importantly gell together. That is the key to our season being a success....
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Sunday 15th October 2017, 2:45 PM
 
I don't blame Button, he doesn't pick the team. I've never liked him, crosses and distribution are worrying but he can be a good stopper. As most of the shooting these days seems to be at the keeper (where are the Jimmy Greaves' for these days?). JC picks the team and he is responsible for our results. Last years tactics do not work. We've been sussed!!
posted by willie2B (Guest) - Sunday 15th October 2017, 10:08 PM
 
Preston pressed very high and we didn't exploit the space in midfield behind the pressing 3. Teams are trying to press high at the start of the game, but their problem is that they tire as Preston did. Button's distribution isn't very good and is slow which doesn't help. I think that MacDonald, Johannson and Norwood suffer as being too similar and with JOhannson tired it didn't work well. MacDonald and NOrwood looked better when Cairney came on. Fonte worked his socks off. Fulham's spirit in not giving up was tremendous.

He is going through a difficult spell , his confidence is draining away . He is trying but his delicate flicks and slide psssing just isn't working . He reminds me so much of Bryan Ruiz but even more lightweight physically. But we knew what we were getting when we signed him . he has not suddenly shed lots of muscle or become 3 inches shorter . Neither has the league become more physical . It's always been this way . We bought him knowing exactly what kind of player we were getting and the challenges he would face . I think he is playing out of position and a lone striker is not his game , he is better playing off another striker - but we don't have one . You can question those who bought him and what research had been done on how he would fit in , but let's try to encourage him . I am sure there is a decent player in there , we need to get to get the best out of him Happy with a point today , but not a good performance , even the last 20 minutes was more grit than skill . Preston were direct. Strong and tough , used their limited resoources well . We were too predicable , too many tight patterns and not enough space or pace .

I also think Fonte was excellent in the second half. He runs tirelessly and to compare him with Ruizis both unfair and laughable. He put in more tackles and tackled back more times than Ruiz did in a season. He also was the one who won the penalty. I really think he should be given credit for his contribution. If the system is right he is, give him Kamara to play off and he’ll do okay I reckon. I think he’s a bit too light( weight wise) to play up front on his own.
posted by Mortlake (Guest) - Sunday 15th October 2017, 9:47 AM
 
I agree with you Mortlake and I didn’t hear anyone boo Fonte. The boos at the end of the first half were for the lino and ref I thought because a lot of people around me thought the through ball leading to their first goal was offside (I didn’t). The officials had a woeful game yesterday for both us and Preston but Preston made it look worse because they tackled hard and play acted every time we made a tackle.
posted by MST (Moderator) - Sunday 15th October 2017, 10:26 AM
 
I sit in H3 and all around me Fonte was being criticised . I don't think it is his fault , he is trying but is always going to struggle as a lone striker against a physical defence . That is clearly not his game . The point I was trying to make is that Klein , Khan and maybe SJ knew what we were signing . Fonte has not suddenly shed muscle or height . I hope he comes good as I think with the right system he can be a real asset .
Our bench on Saturday , apart from TC , had very little that can change a game . Mollo looks to have more physical presence than Floyd or Kebano but we don't have anyone who will attack the ball in the opposition box . . Maybe AK when he returns .

I'm all for scrapping the international breaks. When the leagues played on without their 'stars' the press always moaned that the others had unfair advantage because our teams hadn't much time to learn to play together. From what I've seen of the current squad, I reckon they need a couple of months at least. We can all watch GoT. I hear that's crap as well.

I agree to a point about his distrobution,but to say the goals against were his fault is harsh.Look closely at the action,and you will find the fault on both goals were that of norwood.He was tragicly slow in making his mind up and thus lost the ball.Indeed he nearly gave away another and recieved a sevire telling of by macdonald.I feel he and johanson had poor games and this was the cause of our lackluster first half performance.One other point,how did he miss the ball when 2 yards out?Had that gone in it would have been a diferent game.
