Apparently we've signed Timmy Abraham, why not go for his brother as well. Scored plenty of goals last season. Other clubs have been given permission to talk to him.
Replies
Chelsea want Tammy to get Premier League experience in order to weigh up his true potential. The clubs who have given permission are Newcastle and Brighton. He has already proved he can do it in the Championship.

There's now a 100% tax ( money going to youth) on all foreign buys in the Chinese super league. I think FIFA/UEFA should have a similar approach for excessive transfer fees or salaries. I think it's got a bit out of control!!

Can't say that the return of Stearman fills me with unbridled joy, but then when I look back to how Ream was playing earlier this season perhaps we should give him a chance. If we can find out whatever happened to Ream and apply it to Stearman we might have solved one of our biggest problems. That, however, is a very, very big "IF"

SJ won't move to anything other than a premiership club where he will have the same degree of control he worked so hard to achieve with Fulham and there's not many of them. His efforts have begun bearing fruit here in the last third of the season, I can't see where he could go to replace what he already has. If he wants Premier football, his best chance is to stay put.

Worth noting ,!may be! that clarence seedorf wants to work in the championship,so if S/J gets tapped up by Palace,!he don't have to move and getS prem job with more money! would not MR Khan look toward Reading with Staam and see what a good job he has done and go for it?.Another Dutch master, its all doable.Also if we lose Sess and cairney it gives S/J an insentive to go.

This will, yet again, be a long summer, as lazy journalists feed their editor's demand to shift more newspapers. There is going to be a lot of speculation and the vast majority will be rubbish. My advice is to sit back, enjoy the sun and enjoy the fact that your families are safe and well. We have had a great season, and can look forward to an even better one. As I've said before, nothing is a fact until it's signed, sealed and delivered. Be flattered by attention paid to our better assets. We are Fulham: Believe

Speculation mounting that Jokanovic will move Middlesborogh favourites apparently . This would be a massive kick in the teeth to the supporters .Managers only move for more money and a bigger transfer budget therefore it would show a lack of ambition at FFC and would affect the gates next season . We are on to something good with the present management and last season is only the start of the journey towards the Premiership .

If Jakonovic wants to manage in the premier league, unless one of the clubs comes for him, he's got the best chance at Fulham. Look at what happened to McCormack, thinking he banked promotion joining Villla. How quickly his fortune changed. Middlesbrough might have a great chairman, promotion is never guaranteed in the championship. So I think jakonovic will give Fulham another season.

DMK' I agree with you on this one,slavisa will stay at fulham over Middlesboro. SW6 London fulham suits him down to the ground. Slavisa actually planned his move to london from the tel aviv club. Boro have got a nice stadium and very good facilities, but i feel that slavisa will want to see his beloved project through. We are growing and taking fruit down here at the craven. I can't see slav walking away from fulham just yet....

Reference my mate tom tumbleweed aka Arizona,regards fair play rules , no one understands them,what I cant work out is how most prem clubs several of them with 25,000 home gates,can pay for the upkeep of the ground ,all the staff, security,the squad, medical teams, foodies,travel etc and pay huge amounts to buy players most have never heard of, give 3 year contracts at 70-100 grand a week all on Sky, and what comes through the gate,and any endorsments, then pay Taxes, !I assume!all on a 25,000 gate. How do Stoke ,Swansea Palace, Hull, WBA,leicester,Bournmouth, etc manage ,if they do ?why is the championship so tied down so much.?

posted by DmK (Guest) - Tuesday 23rd May 2017, 3:14 PM
 
As DmK said Bish, it's all about the TV revenues. The Premier League will divvy up 8.3 BILLION pounds over the next three years, of which 25% is performance related, the remainder essentially even stevens. By comparison, the 72 teams in the three lower leagues will split 270 MILLION pounds over the same period, less than 4% of the PL total spread over a much larger group (seventy-two teams versus twenty). The more income a team generates the more they can spend so essentially there is no realistic comparison between FFP rules as applied to Prem teams and the rest. FFP puts the onus on clubs to increase revenues from commercial operations. A mate of mine sells trinkets to Liverpool. They have over 500 staff in their UK based marketing department and at least the same amount in locations overseas. Their commercial revenue stream is approaching half a billion pounds according to Forbes. That, old son, is a lot of tamales.

posted by Len (Guest) - Tuesday 23rd May 2017, 9:07 PM
 
Len. Bournemouth picked up 123.8 million in TV revenues from the season just ended. Then there's match day sales, transfer profits, merchandise, etc. Their wage bill for the season was 34 million. TV revenue details for all PL clubs at businessinsider.com and wage bills for all via Google search using "Premier League wage bills" as a search string. Somehow, I think Bournemouth will survive.
posted by The Arizonan - Tuesday 23rd May 2017, 9:38 PM
 
Bournemouth won't survive unless they step up to the level which will mean better and bigger wage bills and battling with a ground that's not prem grade don't forget midway through this season they had a major wobble allied to the fact there were three very bad teams that went down

He must not be allowed to become our PM, as he has been tainted by the IRA and shrugs his shoulders at violence. Mrs May has her faults, but she will do a far better job at running the country than Corbyn and his cohorts.

Thanks for the compliment Arizonan, albeit in a backhanded way. Here's the intelligence behind my disgust with the link between grooming paedophiles, terrorists and "those people", because the only possible links I can see between "those people" is either they are all evil or they are Asian or they are Muslim, or maybe Moreline was referring to all three! So if someone in Arizona was labelled KKK, racist, murdering scum because they happened to fit the general profile of being from a white, Christian background who lives in America, I think they'd have every right to tell you to F*** right off, because it applies to a fractional percentage of that demographic. So I'll make two stands: the first against the utter scum who perpetrate any act of senseless violence in the name of their beliefs; the second against the ignorance of people who tar everybody from a culture/ religion/ racial background because of a terrorist incident, or a paedophile grooming ring. By the sounds of it you, Moreline and Morney have placed yourselves in the second group. I wouldn't expect you to necessarily understand because if you did, you wouldn't be ignorant!

Not surprised to see that the right wing loons that come on here still can't put a few words together without abuse and obscenity.

A tiny, tiny minority section of a community support a bunch of sadistic homicidal nuttters, there might be one or two hundred terrorists in the entire community. This community could be Muslim, Irish, Basque etc... If you target the entire community you force them in on themselves and end up with thousands of potential terrorists. Not the way to go.

Moreline, sadly you sound like the real life version of Al Murray, pub landlord. I'm sure you've been referring to 'those people' as your Asian brothers for decades, rather than the more derogatory terms your other lowlife mates on this website have used. I am certain you have been an advocate fighting against the evil perpetrated on people of all ethnic backgrounds around the globe. Oh and either your eyesight is screwed or you can't tell your left from your right- nobody else can see any aggressive wet lefties, just Morney who is an aggressive right wing moron with an IQ low enough to use as one of his national lottery numbers.

Well 5crawny, before you arbitrarily determine this thread is over let me educate you on several points. I stepped into this thread because I misread your handle, ergo I assumed the poster was a troll. Apparently not. Why you would post a "shouting" comment on a such a sensitive subject is beyond me, but no doubt you could elucidate. You, and the equally hyped up "Fulham Fan", seem to have a right to be offended and are prone to virtue signalling. Let's deal with the former affliction first. You assumed, and stridently protested, that my comment was racially based. In re-reading it you might consider that there was in fact no racial bias in that, ipso facto, I had no prior knowledge of the poster's ethnicity, and still don't to this day, and that the suggestion to return from whence he came was a reflection on the expressed attitude which, in my opinion, was unbecoming of the nature and audience of this site. Fail number one. Fail number two was to offer ad hominem attacks on contributors intelligence, which I find somewhat ironic given that you are seemingly well educated and intelligent, although I don't necessarily conflate the two, and therefore you understand that the first party to resort to ad hominem attacks loses. Period. I somewhat naively perhaps attempted to call out what I thought was a troll using your handle. My bad. Now, if you so wish, we can continue discussing football. Your call.

The season is over for now, and there is not a lot to write about? I really want to speak up for Sone Aluko! He has been one of fulhams unsung hero's in my opinion. Aluko takes an awful lot of stick for missing chances ect... Aluko was a free transfer, and i personally would have gone in the market for him. The boo boys and the knockers should think back to Alukos best moments for fulham, and he has at least to player of the month awards. I really think that he should have been rested after that 1-1 against reading at the craven. I actually did a write up about that game? I just think that we got our selections wrong for that game? There were players on the bench that were fresher? Please note that i am using question marks??? because it is my personal opinion, and they say the manager has the final say so on who's in or out. Dennis odi should have been in from the start at reading i also think, and maybe Cyriac? Slavisa does use Aluko an awful lot, and i think he should have been benched before that last game. There are reasons why players don't have their shooting boots on, and one good reason is over trying through tiredness. This frequently happens when players play week in and week out. They say they want to play every game, but it is not possible to be on your A game every week. Just watch what happens when liverpool play champions league next season. The likes of Daniel Sturridge and a few more will not be able to play 2 games in a week. They think they can,but they can't hack it. Infact i don't think the likes of sturridge would play more games for fulham than Aluko, i doubt that very much. So the conclusion guys' Give Aluko a break! I think he is a great asset to fulham. We just need another striker to bolster the squad, and i don't mean Chris Martin! I just hope he is back in Derby booked into some hotel trivago with brollyman mclaren doing whatever.....
Replies
I never doubted Aluko and I strongly believe we'd have a stronger squats with than without him. But he's not a natural scorer. At least from what we've seen when he is fully fit and maybe lethargic. Stay at the wing and continues he's dribbles! The best in the league.
posted by John (Guest) - Monday 22nd May 2017, 10:20 PM
 
Aluko is a great player but not a natural goal scorer but has chipped in with nine this season he got pace great skills takes on players tracks back to help defence does not stop worrying opponents loads of energy if he scored more goals would not be playing for Fulham would be in top six side . Did need a rest but understand why Jokanovic kept playing him big asset

Really tough call. So many who we could not have done it without. Cairney, Johansen, McDonald, Malone, Fredericks, Kalas, Aluko were all in my head but had to give it to Cairney in the end as he (in my opinion) was the most consistent.

Cairney Kalas Malone (under rated had a great season) good calls for Aluko but everybody had good parts. The team were so easy on the eye and the 1st half against Huddersfield was superb. I think we gave the sympathy card in the second!.

Can I just check, Basically there are lots of options for player of the season everyone contributed and gave there best and made us supports very proud and delighted with our team. Then maybe we should have a group man of the match for the entire team .........except Martin ! I really don't get it I know he is not Ronaldo and not always the fittest, fastest and most skillful but is he really so bad ?

Still cant work out the fair play rules,thought you only can spend what comes through the gate and sky and products, if so how come the power struggle at Arsenal seems to ignore the facts, . Media recons that the russian guy has offered 1 billion quid for Kronkies stake and they need the cash to move on and buy big,!how can they,? the rich owners cant spend there money on the club, or so I thought hence Khan cant use his money for ffc, so if owners cant spend there money on players why buy a club in first place.?

Whats the problem with bettinelli? You are the main man in the squad right now, it is up to you to hold it down and keep your spot! The only way bettinelli could lose his spot, is if he has a dizzy blonde day,just like button did at derby. I don't think there is a need to put a statement like the one he put out on the fulham forum. For the moment we are holding on grimly to our players, wishing and hoping that they all stay put. One player moving on could cause a domino effect, and more could follow. I am hoping and thinking that our fulham players realise that a move to another club, could be more time on the bench and playing nil poi football. We will have a dream squad if we can hold on to everybody next season. A few additions would be excellent. Let's hope that Slavisa's advice can hit home to young players like sess, and Cairney. We will surely get our chance again, and this time, with a lot more know how, we can go up in 1st or 2nd spot and avoid the dreaded playoffs....

In my opinion, neither Betts nor Butts are good enough first choice goal keepers if we are seriously considering automatic promotion next term. Their strengths combined would make a good keeper but both have weaknesses that have cost us dearly in the past season.

Most keepers who are good shot stoppers but lack confidence or good positioning sense are playing behind a shaky defence who don't inspire confidence. If we get the one or two central defenders we've been crying out for all season, you might find that Betinelli improves immensely. However, while his confidence is questionable, he is certainly not suited to the "Sweeper Keeper" type role the manger seems to favour so much so the recruitment of a dependable centre back becomes even more crucial.
posted by Minister for defence (Guest) - Monday 22nd May 2017, 11:18 AM
 
We all know we need a good centre forward and centre half but most crucially a VERY GOOD keeper who commands his area and makes those perhaps dozen or more saves that give us that vital 8 to 10 points that otherwise we would not have got.The big problem is where do we find that keeper and would he come to the Championship on a promise of the Premier league come May 2018. The main other thing we just have to crack is not wasting so many corners.

Sorry Arizonian' i was referring to the bettonelli leaving post? Apparently, it might be old news? Either way, i think bettonelli has a great opportunity to keep his position. Both goalkeepers are great friends, and they both know the score. Button had a half decent season,but leading into the second half of the season, he fuffed his lines. Especially the game against Derby County, Button had a nightmare! In my opinion, Bettonelli now has the opportunity to nail down his place permanently. To me he showed great agility and he had a great game against reading. Bettonelli tried to make himself useful by joining the strike force in the reading game, but it wasn't to be....

It will be sad to see him leave but I am not sure there's any room for him on the coaching staff unless he wants to train the kids (I really mean kids) or a bit part coach, which I can't see him accepting. if he is happy to play on, I wouldn't mind if the club gives him another years contract. Him on the bench is quite reassuring.

Just viewed some of the goals that Patrick Roberts has scored this season on loan from Man City at Celtic. What with the goals M Dembele score no wonder the ran away with the Scottish League again this season. Glad I am not a Scot when the results every year of their league is already mapped out long before. Patrick is going to be better than Alan Clarke ! Dembele I am not sure about. He will probably be sussed out in a harder league. But I would not mind having them both back next season on loan or Tammy Abrahams.......
Replies
Firstly, Scottish league is the least competitive league in Europe so the idea because Dembele can score a few goals he is worth 40m is a fantasy. Secondly, I can't see them wanting to swap Champions league (albeit, maybe only 2 or 4 games before they get knocked out) for the Championship. Thirdly, I'd agree - both players would fit very nicely back into the current Fulham team! But that will never happen!

We did get 12 million for him, but it would have been so much better if we had him back on loan for a season and the one game from the bench away at Norwich was very disappointing. He owed us fans a season, as alot of us followed him as a youth player and never got a chance to see him play to he full potential.

Could be a good addition another player that struggled in a poor side. Tim Ream has improved dramatically as this season progressed, his confidence now restored as a result of playing alongside more competent colleagues.

For me if we still have Slav there is no place for spearman, he is at the wrong end of the centre back spectrum big strong good in the air, where as Slav likes to build play for the back prefers pace, ball control and passing as a main attribute in his centre backs its key to the sophisticated style he plays. If Slav stays I predict we sell and replace him and as many of the other centerbacks (other than ream, and try and keep kalllas) as we can.

We have endured several poor season's and we have still showed our faith as supporters, in following our club and renewing our season tickets despite these bad times, and then our faith has been somewhat rewarded, this season, and we have at least had one to enjoy, until the end. It was very disappointing to fall at the last hurdle, despite being the best team in the pay offs by far. Now at least we can look forward to next season with great hope of an automatic promotion spot. Then we either read or hear that it is possible that we could lose some of our better players. Well this is where I will make a stand. If this really happens, I will NOT support Fulham anymore, as it will mean that we have all been taken for mugs. We have followed our team through thin and thin, and when the thick comes at last, if they are prepared to sell of our assets then the club will not be worth following. The biggest assets that Fulham have are our supporters and our loyalty, and if that is ignored by Mr Khan and JS, then there are other clubs that will appreciate our support. Please Fulham keep our players, add to the squad, and prove to us that our faith and loyalty will be rewarded. COYW

We only play one way and thoes teams worked it out. We still have a long way to go yet and we wont get instant promotion next season we aint good enough yet.

Sorry lads but the league table never lies, Reading were always in a better position. Remember Jaap Stam was interviewed for the Manager's job at the Cottage before SJ took the job. We have done better than expected. Mind you Billy Mckinlay and SJ were the best two Managers Watford had! Now we have to wait and see if greed overtakes our players as it did last season and see who lines up for the club next season.
Replies
If that really was the case Thank god we got SJ and not Stam. He may bring a limited amount of success to Reading but I would hate to watch his style of football week in and week out. Unfortunately he has turned into a mini me of Ferguson and is not afraid to employ the dark arts. It is not our style and never has been. Hopefully the highly watchable football delivered by Huddersfield Town will prevail at Wembley but I have the feeling their best efforts will also be smothered by the boring methods of Stams great non entertainers.

The rumour mill is in over drive,are they rumours???,Will Cairney put in a transfer request to hasten his move to Newc, has Sessignon put back his signing on account of a spat between him and S/J over him not starting in both playoffs if not why has he put it back?.Newc offered 12 mill but ffc want 20,also is tom hince lined up for replacement for Cairney?.Cairney so says insiders feel he is reaching his peak now, so , Soton have entered the race for Cairney also,the cash till is ringing.
Replies
Whats the view on this one?? Cairney is good enough to play in the Prem, he is 26, tied to a contract until 2019. The club does not need to sell him so its only player power or a huge offer that would require him leaving. We don't need to sell him for less than £20m so if a Prem Lge club comes in with £20m should we cash in or do we ask him for another season and possibly keep a ambitious player who wants to play in the Prem and watch him moan complain (we have a history over the past 4 seasons of allowing players to dictate to us) even in martin's case we stood firm but that didn't really work out for us either..

So if somebody bids £20m for him and £15m for Sessegnon should we take the £35m on the table and back the manager to build a team??

Would the manager stay if they both went?

Would the manager be allowed to have a say in who to sign or would the stats man pi** it up the wall??

So many questions...

I wish the chairman would make a statement, even if its just to congratulate the players on a great season and assure us we are building and showing ambition... All very quiet from Khan!

Simply because English mangers, just the same as English players never move abroad to learn their trade and expose themselves to different cultures and challenges so struggle to deal with the multinational nature of the game brought about by all the TV money flowing into English football

I thought I'd leave it a while to post following the disappointment at Reading in order to allow it to sink in a little.

I think when we all look back on it with sober thoughts we will, as many people have already written, see 2016/17 as one of Fulham's better and more successful season's since the pre-Jol/Pre MAF era. If we really wanted to be pedantic we could say that our season was defined by some poor early results, missed penalties and a little bit of complacency towards the very back end of the season.

What we have to remember though, is that for half a season our players were still learning each others games and defining our style so there were bound to be some disappointments along the way. The number of penalty misses cannot be excused in my opinion as these are professional footballers but Slavisa keep changing who takes them had an affect on that as well I think. The Martin debacle could not have been good for the dressing room no matter how the club and Slavisa dressed it up for the press but we did need another dimension in some games that he definitely brought us. Our business in the transfer market was good in my opinion and I think the right players left us, joined us and went out on loan. Much has been written about Woodrow and Smith but I think if we are all honest neither would have improved our results overall.

Personally though, although I am not completely over the disappointment of not playing at Wembley, when all is said and done I enjoyed this season far more than the last four or five and I renewed my season tickets without a thought this year when in previous years I have wavered before committing again. I feel certain the club will learn a lot from this season.

In terms of next season, I am not expecting Fulham to be promoted automatically but would love to see that happen. It's two months away yet and the Championship is a very hard league to get out of automatically regardless of the strengths and weaknesses of the teams coming up or down.

Already the press is full of speculation about which players we will sell but if we can keep the players Slavisa wants to keep and strengthen at the back (including a keeper)as well as bring in a couple of different types of centre forward with a good eye for goal in this league then I think next season will be one to look forward to with fervor.

I will keep an eye on the board and even post occasionally over the summer but until next season, I wish you all a decent break and look forward immensely to the new season.

And to you too MST. Enjoy your brake, and if you get bored, contemplate writing your ffc memoires,im sure you will sell at least a dozen to those of us who frequent this site.Regarding thoughts for next season,I like most cant wait for the start of the new season but without being over optimistic we must aim at a direct promotion spot because it is a fact that we have been one of the best championship sides and with 3-4 additions and a more serious approach to those games which are "easy" on paper we will add many stupedly lost points.

Whilst I always enjoy your posts, and agree with most of what you have to say, I would take issue with that hoary old chestnut which is so often quoted, that the Championship is such a difficult division to get out of. Yes, I know that almost everyone says it, but it doesn't really automatically mean that it's correct. When I consider that we made the playoffs after a very mixed season of wonderful football and woefully missed points, i just don't subscribe to the theory. Yes, it may be hard to stay in the Premiership, but when I look at both automatically promoted clubs and those in the playoffs, I don't see any real quality or threat to a Fulham team playing at its best. We have nothing to fear, except fear and complacency. We could and should be automatically promoted next year with the retention of existing players, a couple of additions and, of course, that little bit of luck.

Incredibly proud of the Manager & Squad this season, we've turned a corner for sure!! But being brutally honest with myself now I'm over the Reading loss - we didn't want to be prem league whipping boys!!!! Did we?? Another year in the champ will enable us to grow even stronger & with a good mix of our own players now in 1st team (Bettenelli, Sessegnon + returning Woodrow & Christensen) added to more good permanent additions like we had this year in Malone, Ream, Johansen, Big Mac, Aluko, Kebano & Ayite - who knows??? What we don't need again is playing half a season with a striker that don't want to be here & sorry to Cyriac but not for us!!! A good Striker is a must. Kalas & Piazon gave 110% even though loan players, I personally think both are very good & realistically they have 1% chance at Chelsea - so we should definitely try very hard to bring them in on permanent deals. Never stop believing - COYW
Replies
How can you write off Cyriac? he only joined us in january, and has been on the bench most games since then. with a settled team he has only been given a few minutes each time he came on, and I remember a cracking goal he scored. If he stays, lets see how he does pre season before writing him off.

Replies
If Reading manage to get promoted and keep a foothold (toehold?) in the PL they might well transform into another Southampton or Watford. They have an excellent new stadium, it's motorway and mainline train accessible, and they have a huge catchment area, no longer as rural as it was when I lived and worked there. Al Habsi, Williams and the French bloke make a good core on which to build. If they don't bottle it (and they showed no signs of that tendency in their last two games) I think they'll go up and stay up.

Before the play-off, I'd would have ranked the 4 teams in the following order interms of the best teams

1. Fulham
2. Sheffield Wednesday
3. Huddersfield
4. Reading

I suspect Reading will frustrate Huddersfield the way they did to Fulham. So they will probably win and get promoted!

Championship is barmy!!

With an injection of cash and savvy management styles, neither of these teams would be dead certs for relegation. Of the two I would favour Reading staying up if promoted because Stam will recruit players that fit the defensive mould and are able to muscle their way through games. Yes we hammered them 5-0, but he learnt from that and formulated an approach that left us frustrated and unsuccessful in two matches since that victory.

didn't they lose 7-1 to Norwich. I am not sure they learned from their thrashing. They are a completely team if they are behind. If we managed to get our nose in front in either of the 2 games, I think the outcome could be very different. Their tactic is to kill the game and sneak a goal. And you have to admit, they were very good at it over the 2 games. But they would not survive in the prem

First imperative is keep Slavisa Jokanovic as Manager of FFC the next season as he has plenty of suitors. He can and will retain Tom Cainey who looks good but needs another season at Fulham. I think he was shown up when we played Tottenham this and he has got to understand it is going to be like that every game in the Prem! Ryan Sessegon will not harm his career staying another season or two at Craven Cottage. He must learn that "all that glitters", ask Luke Shaw. We need two proved strikers and a central defender of Premiership quality. What about bringing back Chris Smalling? - as Jose does not seem to rate him, or signing Andreas Christensen from Chelsea would be better (he played on loan at Munchengladbach this season) and take Tomas Kalas on a permanent deal. Strikers I would recommend are Kasper Dolberg, of Ajax 19 years Danish Int, Nigel Hasselbaink of Excelsior 26 played has in Scotland & Greece Newphew of Jimmy Floyd or Ivan Santini of Caen, Coratian Int 25. I know West Ham are looking at him! And bring in Caudrey Woodrow from the cold, he got goals for Burton Alb!

I think we loyal Fulham fans feel the same at the moment . We are all disappointed and maybe a little bit upset, but we are extremely proud of our players and managers and we are quite optimistic about the future as long as we keep the team together, and jakonovic stays with us plus some investment on new players! I think all this will happen but let's not get too complacent and start talking about winning the league and automatic promotion. If one thing I learnt and regret is there was too much hype about Fulham for the play-offs. We did ok without any hype but when we got into the play-offs, it went a bit mad ! So let's stay modest about next year! As the manager said, the only goal is to be in the half the league fighting for promotion. Forget winning or automatic promotion!!

Been an excellent season.next season looks even better.We all would have loved the Wembley experience But lets go up automatically next year. do not need an older striker like Defoe. Astriker with pace to fit in. My dream is to stand at the station behind Martin and see him purchase a single ticket to Derby anything but a return.Followed Fulham since the 60s and cannot think of a player I disliked more. amazing we got in the play offs with him.

I was cheered up after watching Tom's interview, as it looks like we will be able to rely on him again next season, which is very encouraging. A couple of good signings and we will pass Brighton on the way down. COYW

It is my belief that Tom has good sense and stays with Fulham. If he chooses to leave and go to a top six team in the Premier league, he will just become a squad player. If he decides to go to any other Premier league side he will not be bettering himself. I think Fulham will offer him an improved contract to help us push for automatic promotion for next season with an option of leaving us in the January Window if we are not challenging for promotion. As for Ryan Sess he will sign a contract with us and stay for at least two years. Of course, this will only happen providing Slavisa stays with us of which i'm sure he will. He has said himself that he wants to stay at Fulham for at least ten years. Roll on the start of next season. COYW.

As the years slip slowly away, I am beginning to wonder if I will live to see my beloved Fulham return to the Premier League. In my own mind I was convinced that we would come out of last night's game with a win, even if it had gone to penalties, but lady luck deserted us on the night, and it was quite obvious that the best and classiest team lost. Reading have very little chance of promotion, so hopefully revenge will be sweet next season. I must admit that I went to bed last night with tears in my eyes, and I have shed another couple today, and I am trying to convince myself that football is only game, and that tomorrow is another day, and that we would have lost at Wembley if we had of been there. It seems a long time until August, when it all starts again, but when it does Joka and the boys will be ready, and this time we will not lose out again.

I agree, a league is a league and reflects performance over the whole season against all the other teams. Sticking a knockout competition on at the end contradicts the whole idea. It's worse in rugby where you can finish top of the league and still have to play a semi final and final to win the title just so they get to put on a big match at Twickenham. If you insist on having a playoff then the old idea is much better where third and fourth from the bottom of the higher division play off against third and fourth from top of the lower division. That way it's more likely a that the team going up is suited to he higher league.

I have it on good authority that Fulham will be getting new uniforms next season. As the principal sponsor for 2018 will be The British Onion Producers Association (BOPA) one of their conditions is that each player must wear brown flakey long trousers and the top has a small portion of green around the neck. Away kit is expected to be red onion themed.

So we all feel a little gutted as we didn't make Wembley. Reading used gamesmanship physical and defensive tactics not pretty but upset our flow in both games. Sadly watching the screened game at the cottage yesterday we just lacked composure when needed and clinical finishing. Should have scored 2. Reading very dull and convinced won't beat either Sheffield Weds or Huddersfield. We need to keep our players ex that lame duck Martin and I feel first game he should never have started and we lost advantage from home game. Now what. Next season so many sense we will do it but we need more quality upfront and poss strength in midfield and central defence. Will Khan spend I doubt it as he broke promise in summer to buy . Overall very proud and a little deflated today knowing we lost out to a very bad Reading side.
Replies
Yes I agree, what a fantastic defensive display that we saw last night. We hardly ever really got near their goal and quite right if we were more clinical from 40 yards out we would have definitely won the game. Both teams had limited chances in front of goal which in my eyes cancelled each other out. We can’t say they won’t win the final as they were least favourites going into the playoffs and have beaten us (apparently the favourites). We can’t forget Stam was a defender and he got that spot on against us.

So that's it then, all the hard work and dreams ended by one soft penalty, but credit were its due, we had two games to tie it up and failed ,they let us score just once knew how to tie us up and it worked ,back to drawing board. So what now? well we have no money left from parachute payment so I guess Cairney will go if 20 mill offered,Sess will stay for another year,and we look to buy Kalas and piazon, then take stock of what around and get them to play the Janko way, assuming he stays,hit the ground running and stay on top as did Newc and Brighton, can see championship next season being one hell of a season with villa ,derby ,norwich ,the other play off teams plus the ones who come down making it a big battle for top spot.

Have just seen a close up picture of that handball and it clearly shows that the Reading player handballed before KALLAS handballed. The Reading player put his fist under Kallas's arm and fisted the ball on to Kallas's arm. Therefore, it was handball before handball, just shows Fulham's luck this season. Also, if only we had scored those penalties. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Now i can't wait for the New season to begin as i believe we are in for a better one than we have just had. COYW

Ok, so we didn't get a trip to Wembley which would have been a nice day out but I feel that finishing 6th in the Champioship shouldn't give you the means to get into the Premiership. As for next season with a couple of good signings we will be one of the favourites to go up on merit, so let's see what happens over the summer. I'm giving my finger a rest for a few months so to all the contributors ( well most of them)it's been fun reading all your comments regarding our great club and look forward to " meeting up again " when the action starts.

Thank f***! Happy days, roll on next season, with our present team ( let's hope we can hang on to the best of them) plus a couple of additions, we won't need the playoffs.

I cant shake it off, still gutted!!

Our flair players just couldn't break the Reading shackles, Cairney/Johanson just couldn't get a grip on the game, we just never cut loose over the two games and fair play to Reading, they learnt from the spanking we gave them at our place and totally changed their tactics and did a job on us, they played exactly the way you have to against us, flood the midfield, niggle, slow the play down, get the ball forward quickly as we commit so may players forward.

Since Xmas either Ayite, Kebano, Aluko have turned it on from one game to the next, over the two games all 3 were poor.

Still we played ok over the two games and if you look at both the goals we went out to you can see a clear handball by Williams on Saturday and a contentious handball by Kalas last night.

Hard to find positives today but hopefully we can get Sessegnon signed on tmrw and secure his services or secure a big transfer fee, hopefully we can get it sorted early with Cairney, if anyone wants him then its £25m or go away, make that statement or issue a hands off and mean it.

Quite clear for everyone to see that if we keep the squad together all we really need to add is a out and out goalscorer (someone like Wood from Leeds) we need a commanding central defender/leader to grab the team by the scruff of the neck when things go against us, not sure who that is and I know we wont get Terry or want him but that type of player is just what we need.

If you didn't feel gutted you wouldn't be a Fulham fan and love the club

Can't disagree with any of that Adam. Just to add though, Kalas did not handle the ball, Kermorgant, punched it.

Agree about the penalty but to be honest, when I saw it (on TV) in real time I thought it looked like a penalty. Hard to blame the ref for that one

Atkinson smiling at every decision he didn't give us didn't improve my mood much either

Atkinson couldn't have seen the offense , no.1 he was a good 30 yards away , no.2 Kalas and kermorgant were overlapping eachother going for the ball , no.3 Kalas and kermorgant had their backs to Atkinson , no.4 Where was his visibilty to judge it was a penalty , other than reacting to kermorgants protestations . My theory is Atkinson bottled it , simple as that !

What's the rule? If you didn't see it, or are unsure, you can't give il. Simple as that.
