But are we? I keep reading that we've been fed lies and more lies but surely that is due to the fact that the media has consistently dodged giving us anything except anti- Brexit info. Yet there has been enough to make good arguments for leaving, even with no deal. What really chokes is that the Boris led campaign did not prepare any plan to move forward after a Brexit yes vote. I agree with the cynics who say that he expected to lose, wanted to lose while he positioned himself for Tory leadership. Even now there are reports of a takeover from Mre May soon after March. Come what may, I will not be voting Tory in the near future. Choosing a new PM will be a problem. I guess I'll step back and let the youngsters decide but please,no more MPs over the age of 45, few if any, are trustworthy..

Manager useless cannot motivate players who cost millions. Players who can't defend a lead and fans who are starting to boo their team. Multi billionaire owner not very pleased and their star player wanting away. Who ? - well Chelsea FC. If this season has been a disappointment for us, just when we thought we have got things going for us, think about Chelsea - 40 players out on loan and they cannot get a result from their multi millionaire players. Hazard's off to Real Madrid. Glad to see another team suffer like us.

As bad as Chelsea maybe at the moment, I would change places with them any day of the week. They will still be in the Premier League next season, and we won't be. See what I mean.

I didn't mean as a club, I just meant their position in the league table. Don't be stupid, I would like to see them at the bottom, and us at the top, and I just hope that they get another good hiding in the Final on Sunday. It would be lovely.

Our one time "stats guru" and self proclaimed whistleblower has deleted all tweets since January 23rd. As he's a US citizen and has been inviting civil suits from the FA the conclusion would mostly likely be that there is now an ongoing parliamentry investigation into the FA and Fulham into his many accusations of malfeasance within the FA and dodgy dealings by clubs and agents and that he's been asked, or advised to stop stirring the pot while this goes ahead. Potential stormy waters ahead.

There was a poster on Tiff dubbing himself "ck" making all sorts of claims and accusations. He was good, imposter or not, but the forum has suffered since in terms of over moderation. Can't be too careful, it seems.

My reading of it is different: he’s withdrawn his tweets as he’s been advised to stop digging a hole for himself, as Khan has probably threatened to take him to the cleaners....

I think it is as Arizonian says..Having spoken to someone who works at FFC there is an atmosphere of fear so everyone is laying low..Certain People have already been "moved to different roles" in light of bullying allegations in academy. Management are under investigation for inducements/ Agent collaboration etc and other dealings..not a nice place to be at the moment
posted by rich (Guest) - Tuesday 19th February 2019, 8:23 PM
 
If you had followed his tweets Rm you'd have seen he's been inviting lawsuits both here and in the US. No reason for him to avoid them. He wants to be sued to bring his allegations out into the open. As RoC said, things are not all tickety-boo at the club and, if Kline prevails, there's a shed load of touble in store for the club and its owners.

Willie Mckay is being accused of inflating player values and creating a false market to artificially manipulate and inflate the price of late Sala (so sad and sorry for him and his family btw). Guess what - he is also the agent who sold us Anguissa. If Cardiff think they paid too much, surely we have an even bigger case to sue McKay for Anguissa. Not only he added a few millions, he added an extra ZERO on the transfer fee for Anguissa!

He may have brokered the deal, but it was Fulham that bought the player of their own violition. Therein lies the blame.

At least the blue nosed know how to react with a manager they are not happy with! Tiny protest by us fans singing ‘you don’t know what you’re doing!’ When going to a back 5 against Man.Utd and even then Ranieri thought we were upset by taking the pointless Schurle off. (And before you say it, A protest about Ranieri is also a protest against Tony Khan who appointed him saying he was ‘risk free’.)

After Land Rover and Nissan and now Honda are pulling out of the country! I assume Jaguar are planning and it will be only a matter of time before BWM want to build Mini outside UK. It is looking very bleak for the car industry. Infact, probably many more manufacturer (Dyson, INEOS to just name two) will likely follow suit. I know one will argue BREXIT would only mean a temporary pain and disruption. unfortunately, this could be only the start of the worse to come...and who said BREXIT is great for our country?!

Land rover sales are down because seventy percent of the cars are diesels. Snowflakes again. Others are just warnings they might pull out. It will cost them millions to set up some where else. People voted to come out because the so called people running this country GOT IT BADLY WRONG. And people had' had enough of there s###t. And they are still GETTING IT WRONG.

Unless politicians start telling the truth about the dependence on our close relationship with the EU nothing will get sorted.

Your quite correct many lies were told during the run up to the referendum, I clearly remember being told that if we voted to leave we would have to have an emergency budget - never happened, unemployment would rise- just the opposite, the economy would crash - no sign of it, America would put us at the end of the queue for any trade deals, the man in charge says we won't I suppose the plague of locusts could still happen !!! Oh yee of little faith

Geezer not sure why you think li'l old blighty is BMW's biggest market. Take a trip to Germany, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Russia, etc., etc. There are more BMW's on the autobahn than there are in the UK!!

Brexit was always going to lead to major job losses and anybody who thinks otherwise is simply incorrect. That is not an opinion it is a simple fact. One airline gone blaming Brexit, one car manufacturer doing the same, Sunderland will be next, then Derby, then, then then.

Sterling is volatile and been under pressure for some time and how long do you thing the economy will grow (if you think sub 1% is growth!!)once it is £0.90 to the euro and equal with the USD which is not just possible but likely if we leave without a deal.

The minimum duties that most analysts are predicting is 4% but maybe as much 8% for some goods. If sterling drops by 10% it doesn't take a mathematician to work out that the economy could shrink by up to 5% and if you think there are a lot of foodbanks now wait 'til then!

That's what happens when you give people who don't know what they're voting for a vote unfortunately :0(((.

We are in a transition from oil to electrics. Companies like Landrover just haven't kept up with the times. The Germans have progressed starting small. Volkswagen up is 'E' The Golf is a 'E' BMW is a 'E' We will blame Brexit for most of our problems when Brexit has not even breathed in yet. Away from cars, new deals can be negotiated no problem. We will have new deals with America, China, the swiss ect. Half of Europe are skint anyway and i suspect that when we leave, others will follow.

Owen, when we leave the EU we will leave behind over 30 trade deals with countries outside the EU that the EU negotiated on our behalf as well as trade deals with all the EU countries. It has taken 30+ months to negotiate an exit from the EU and we are still nowhere near agreeing a final plan, how long do you think it will take to negotiate new deals with other countries? It isn't happening overnight mate as if by magic like some people (including you) seem to think) and in the meantime what do you think will happen?

You don’t hear much about banks affected by brexit because they have all moved their accounting and bookings out of UK as a result of the Brexit - that’s not a mess but a complete disaster for our financial center of the world!

England forever, EU for never. You lot posting in favour of being in then EU, want your heads testing. They are the most crooked lot of 27 nations that could ever be assembled, and the auditors won't even sign of their accounts as they have more fiddlers than an orchestra. We will go on to be a great nation again once we are out, with our own laws, fishing rights etc, and we won't be handing over billions of pounds to a load of crooks that hate us, as proved every year in the Eurovision song contest. If you all love the EU so much, go and live in Europe, but you will soon be hurrying back, once you see how well we are doing on our own.

I think some of you have lost sight of the fact that the "billions of pounds" we pay to the EU offsets the "TRILLIONS OF POUNDS"" we (you, I, businesses and ultimately you and I) will pay in duty when we are no longer part of the EU.

The reason Honda are leaving is because the EU and Japan have struck a free trade agreement which, means that they no longer have to manufacture in the EU and if they stay in the UK they will be subject to duty when they ship into the EU. It's a no brainer for a business.

Naively, quoting the Eurovision Song Contest LTS once again compounds my argument that if you give someone a vote that does not know what they are voting for, you end up in a mess like the one we have.

You should also remember how many people in this country are employed by European companies; who do you think owns our utilities? EDF - France, eON - Germany, NPower - Germany, etc., etc., etc. Where do you think our food comes from? Even Cadbury's chocolate is imported from Poland.

You Brexiteers have no idea what you have doe to this country and most of you won't even live to see the legacy you've left for your children and grandchildren. It's enough to make you want to cry :0(((.

Owe dear MST, still spouting the same nonsense about brexit!!! The truth is no one really knows what will happen or what shape brexit will yet take, yet you remainders know everything according to you. Have you not not noticed how the press report good articles saying inspite of brexit new jobs created, and then in the next article it will be because of brexit jobs closing. You might also want to do some research into who owns various news outfits such as the Guardian, Huffpost, the independent I could go on. And just just to prove a small point the bbc ran a article on the front of there website saying that the ftse has suffered a dip the dip was 0.05% yet the previous week the ftse has gained a whole 2% yet nothing on any of the news outfits go work that one out.

Keetch54, sadly your comment just proves my point, you aren’t able to deflate with any factually evidence you just say the same thing over and over again. John, thank you for your reply as you at least put some comments forward to discuss. With regards to the NHS have no staff , there has always been a shortage of staff even before the brexit vote, are you saying that since the vote NHS staff have returned back to there country? Or that due to the population increasing at a faster rate than the NaHS are able to recruit staff that there is now an even bigger shortage? With regards to the pound, I’m probably in a better posit than most to comment on this due to the companies I own. If you look at the value of the pound two days before the referendum it is not far of parity with what it is now,if however you look at the value of the pound and I’ll thrown in the value of the ftse on the evening of the referendum then both are considerably under this was due to the markets inflating the values on that day and then shortselling the next day. The truth is John personally I think we will have a tough ride after brexit if it happens in its correct form(this I doubt will happen, personally I think we will get a very watered down version) but this I believe is the point remainders are missing we didn’t vote for a better economy , we voted for a better way of life and to be able to make decisions for ourself, not by some unelected body that we can’t control

To say "that's what happens when you give people who don't know what they're voting for a vote", suggests that the comment only relates to those of us that voted leave and not the "remainers".Is this not displaying a somewhat condescending superiority?

Ok so we are going down the my dick is bigger than your dick are we ST? You have no idea of my background, knowledge on the subject or my connections so please don't make uninformed accusations.

Just when I thought we were having a serious debate. Shame :0(.

Bumble, please kindly don't make assumptions either. My remarks to having a referendum regarding such a serious subject that affects millions of lives for many years to come refers to the stupidity of asking the public to decide and that refers to both Brexiteers and Remainers.

If you had the same referendum today the results could well be the same and they could well be different but the dynamic of the electorate has changed massively in 30 months so it is unlikely the result would replicate the previous one.

Many older people will be dead or not able to vote and many younger people would now be eligible to vote so how can it be sensible to ask the man in the street with (in general) little or no fact (whether researched or not) but a mountain of rhetoric on one specific day to decide the destiny of an entire nation and then act on a result that was (more or less) 50/50 give or take a few thousand votes in the odd 30,000,000.

My last comment on this particular thread but an interesting debate nonetheless.

In the 1975 referendum I voted to leave the Common Market (EU). Prior to the referendum, both Enoch Powell (political right) and Tony Benn (political left) said the aim of the Common Market was to create a political government for Europe and that if we stayed in the Market we would live to regret it in later years. On this issue they were both right.

MST' i think we will eventually be in a powerful position concerning trade deals. We are probably the 5th most powerful country and the most influential in the world. Any lost trade deals can be renegotiated again, who wouldn't want to deal with Great Britain? The car industry has had a good run now for 100 years plus on Deisel oil, everything is in transition now with electric cars creeping in and driverless cars. We don't see things until it is in our faces and not just blaming the likes of Land-Rover who are a bit slow off the mark. We also have big problems with our roads, i don't think we will be ready for self-driving cars ect. Our Roman friends left us with too many windey roads all over the place and it will cost billions to re-design and just to get everything with technology into place. Back to Honda who promised to stay put here? They should not have made that promise and for good reason. Honda and the Japs are so far ahead in technology, but that techno gear and ideas are back in Japan. Technology is developing at a rate of knots and everybody is catching a breath to keep up with it. I challenge anybody to get a workforce of say 2000 people and machinery up to speed with electric technology? Not possible, and there needs to be a lot of thought and thinking hours at the table before any new production on electrics. Boris Johnson had the right idea bringing Electric bikes forward but we are still not up to speed with those fly-over bypasses etc. We are thinking about all these technology but still not proactive enough to change things. One guy i was reading about today has just invented a Battery that can run for 3000 miles before a charge, can you imagine that? I think they have incorporated it with Hydrogen which is very volotile and dangerous. The guy must be a genius because there is only a prototype for Hydrogen technology but there is still a danger with that stuff. The boffins and clever people like your Teslas who are pushing this stuff are funded generously. We have some clever people here too but they need lots of money and thinking time to bring it to the table. We are just not at the races at the moment, but we are Britain and i think that everybody will eventually want to do business with us again.

MST has it spot on..FYI GB represents about 1.15% of the world GDP and we are now 7th/8th in terms of economy..we were 5th before brexit but Califiornis is now bigger than us..so anyone who thinks we are Great is harping back to an empire many years ago (built on invading other countries taking there goods and using their cheap/slavery labour)..the reason we are great now is because we (I thought) learnt from that and realised inclusiveness and sharing ideas/culture /people etc is for good not bad..Anyone who says WTO works needs to read up on it as we are bound by pretty strong rules as is everyone else and doesnt make good reading if we go down that path..so imagine why would any nation want to give us a better trade deal with a consumer market of 60m than say the EU with a market of 600m people..SO economically it was always a stupid idea and sadly its divided a nation through nationalism and scaremongering. Nationalism is a forerunner to facism and as someone said its a reason to hate people you dont know...Cameron May Rees Mogg and now Corbyn have a lot to answer for IMO

Sure we have in the distant past , but thinking about last 8 years . I can’t recall anyone . There must be several players in the lower leagues who are now established with their club but could be enticed to step up a level .might be more productive than trolling the lower leagues of France and Belgium .

Ranieri wants us fans to love him and a good way to start the ball rolling is to include Tom Cairney and Ryan Sess in the team line-up on Saturday. Even the likes of Tony Gale is saying these two should play and i think they will. That is the easy part for Ranieri and it shouldn't take a whole amount of brain cells to work out who he should bench. Our next hurdle is getting over our nervous disposition on the pitch to even give us a chance of winning. Even before that, can Tom Cairney's idea for team bonding work? whether it's Go Karting or chucking pennies nearest to a wall, it does not matter one jot, we need a win pronto! I think that even the most harden and anti-Ranieri fan will forgive Ranieri if only we can beat West Ham. A win will be a shock to the system for everyone who has put up with our calamities and disasters on the pitch this season. Most of us have given up the ghost and a shock win will bring on hazy dreams of survival. Saturday's match is a local big Derby, and we will have to leave everything on the pitch. Mental toughness and resilience is not our strongest weapon and i just don't know where we will find those two attributes but find those and more we must. So over to Ranieri and Cairney with plan 'Z'. Goodness knows we have tried everything else....

You can't blame Sess if he leaves he doesn't get a game under CR . Brings him on with 2 minutes to go against Man U when were are losing 0-3 at left back what an insult . Like Cairney he should be playing every week apart and from Mitro he is the only player up front with a footballing brain ! With CR in charge FFC is making the same mistakes that they made with Magath and as far as I am concerned Leicester City won the PL despite CR ! Our season is over I'm afraid although like most who post on this site will still go to the matches and support FFC even although it is painful to watch apart from 45 mts against B & H . The only good news is I can keep my seat for next season because the development is off best if the owners had said at the outset the new development was subject to FFC remaining in the PL .

If it’s true about the postponement of works to the riverside stand don’t think it’s goods news for our club,I believe it’s a 2 year project would make sense to give the squad 2 seasons to return to the premier league better prepared therefore if you planned it correctly the reduction of our gates would be easier to deal with in the championship. I think the current chairman/ board had ambition or they wouldn’t have spent all that money in the summer transfer window but bet there’s more behind the delay unless this is just a rumour. Let’s face it ,they’ve purchased the club there not stupid and can do whatever they want with it!

If you’re going to do something do it properly, research, use legitimate sources and don’t regurgitate unsubstantiated gossip. I swear half the posters on here recently, wake up in the morning, having had some kind of dream or epiphany, and immediately share the information, assuming that they must have read it somewhere. They definitely come out of the woodwork when things aren’t going to plan.

Nice to see Dan Burn has now switched to Brighton Hove Albion having left Wigan in the summer. My question is why did Fulham let such a promising Centre Half 6' 7" go in the first place. How we could use his experience now! It is the same with Cauley Woodrow, Under England 21 scoring goals for pleasure - will he be allowed to drift off too?
Replies
Its called Magath and his wondrous decision to play him at right back the ( last ) season we were relegated when he was humiliated by Stoke’s speedy winger ( name escapes me ) This was considered a punishment for Burn questioning Magath’s tatics in previous games. His confidence was shot to bits so he sought a new start elsewhere.

If it has been delayed / postponed , makes total financial sense . Probably one of the better decisions made by the Khans in the last 12 months . Is Khan Sr still looking for the Fulham FC car park he mentioned meeting the fans in just after he bought the club - shows a level of due diligence . Maybe he thought he was getting Bishops Park as part of the deal .

On the club website they want us to buy away tickets. I wanted to do that from the start of the season but they refused to sell me tickets until the last moment which did not give me time to plan, I am not going to wait around just in case they lower themselves to sell me a ticket. I wanted a ticket to Man City away in September but they refused to sell me any because I did not have enough points.I told them I would be unable to get back to the Cottage and would not buy them online but they would not sell me a ticket, now they can get stuffed.
Replies
To be fair the club cannot sell you a ticket they have not been allocated yet! And when they do have the tickets, like all clubs, there is a pecking order! Nothing unusual. So let’s not blame the club. The issue is we suffer enough watching the home games - do we want more!?

Yep , i think most of us were rather foolishly expecting some fully fit signings in the first week of January , players who might have made an immediate impact . But of course this was unrealistic , we never do the obvious so two signings in the last hours of the window , with both requiring some lengthy adjustment time , was par for course . And as both are signed until season end , not sure they are long term . Think we might get a Kosta Packet Mitroghou type cameo from both of them .

John - That was Kosta Packet . Record signing , 12 games to save our season and he could hardly walk . I think he managed one game in Cardiff and thought he was converting tries as his 3 goal efforts were way over the bar . He had been injured since November , so Teflon who was in charge of transfers at the time knew exactly what he was getting . Once again a last minute offer for a Dutch striker fell through so we accepted Kosta as replacement . Plus Kosta's agent had it written into contract that his client would only play in the Premier league not the championship , so the next season we had to loan him out to Benfica . Great business , Teflon is one sharp cookie teaching Jr Khan how to run a club properly .

NO DEAL is the nearest to what 17.4 million voted for. Those who want a 3rd Referendum, (there was one already in 1975 and our second in 2016) might not get what they wished for because I believe the British have had enough with 650 MP's trying to frustrate this countries desire to become an independent sovereign country once again and return to our third country status and our booze cruises to Calais and Ostend. No seruously, I am Danish an hope that the UK really benefits from its independence. I am a member of the Danish Folkparti and we together with two other parties are dedicated to also leaving this unelected, undemocratic and unaccountable organisation. The EU will sink without British taxpayers money as after the Germans the UK pays between 35 & 43% the cost of the EU. Mrs Thatcher (before she was elected said) they only reason anyone would want to be a member of the EU is if they wanted to sponsor and unwrite several countries in Europe to a living standard they themselves cannot afford.
posted by Rich of Cambridge (Guest) - Thursday 14th February 2019, 10:17 AM
 
Hmmm if we leave without a deal that means we will also loose the trade deals that the EU struck with over 30 countries outside of Europe and there is no contingency in place meaning that it could take up to two years to renegotiate those deals.

I still can't believe that so many people in the twilight of their years want those with a future in front of them to live in a country with higher taxes, high loss of jobs, loss of resources, trade borders, reduced freedom of movement around the world for British people, risk of war, risk of more people on the breadline, higher prices, and, and, and.

I want immigrants to live and work here but i don't want tom dick and harry turning up randomly and they should be able to speak English to integrate into society. No one has any manors anymore, no one says please, thank you or excuse me. Also look how difficult it is to leave, just think how much harder it would be in the future, if we leave you might be pleasantly surprised by what happens after. All other European nations could do the same thing and instead of being centrally administered within the eu each European country can trade with each other outside of eu. I dont just want us to leave - I want Italy, Ireland, Holland, Spain etc to leave and do what we are doing. Stop this eu nonsense. The reason it was set up was to maintain peace. The EU probably just want a European army to take over Russia. even if the country becomes poorer for it I will be proud that we stood up for what we believe in

You do not have to be selected by a elite group of politicians like in Britain by a party. They have them every 4 years and you can only stay in office for 8 years in total unlike in Britain. If you don't like what you have to can vote them out. I am not a Trump supporter and was not a Clinton supporter either. It was nothing to do with me , Let America vote for who they want and if they don't like what they have they will vote for someone else next year. With Obama big promise being Obamacare and Gun law changes and Trump wanting to build a wall what I get out of all this is the American president is not the most powerful person in the world as unless the senate agrees he cant do a lot.

Interesting to read the Mail on Sunday headline “Neil Warnock, Manager of the Year”, who towards the end of Cardiff City’s match against Southampton kicked the match ball out of the stadium, when another ball could not be immediately produced. Why was he not booked by referee Martin Atkinson for wasting time? Likewise our entire squad should be booked for wasting our Manager’s time because the look on Claude Rainiers’s face at the end of our match against Manchester United said it all – he had wasted his breath and time all last week in training with our inept players. People talking about replacing our current Manager ought to start taking a collection, as he ought to be compensated for the lie he was told that we had players who complete in the Premiership when being interviewed for the post!
Replies
Leaving Cairney and Sess on the bench and McDonald out of the squad completely doesn't exactly help his cause!
posted by Chris of Jokes - Wednesday 13th February 2019, 9:41 AM
 
Must admit Warnock's recent success has surprised us all. AND WHY SHOULD HE NOT WASTE TIME - All the top teams do it, and a lot worse. I can't recall he has publicly castigated his players or his management. He has just got on with the job. I laughed at Cardiff in August but have to applied him now. Well done Neil! Ranieri is not happy with a lot of things, players mostly - he's not likely to have a go at the management that has ensured a nice send off to his (hopefully) retirement. The man lost his usefulness 2 seasons ago but is an easy excuse for the unaware or stupid. You can't make a silk purse etc.......... but you can blame him for believing anything he was told before signing. Truth is that less than half the players are good enough for EPL, none defensively; no new players to come in Janaury (except freebees on crutches); and teflon Mac would manage the cash. Any football man, including fellow posters, could have told you that our defence was crap. If Ranieri was a gentleman, rumour does not support this, he would have resigned in embarrassment. Roll on next season.

Warnock did not kick the ball out of play , it was one of their players , huge volley from half way line . Now it was meant as a forward pass , but it achieved the purpose . Full credit to Warnock , has got a lot out of little plus his teams always have fighting spirit . Ok the football is crap , but is ours any better at the moment ?

On paper that Cardiff team is probably the worst in Prem Lge history. I hate Warnock but you have to give him huge amounts of respect from getting every last inch of talent and effort out of every one of his players, look at the squad, how many of his team are better than ours?? Answer none, but how many of his team talks and tactics and organisational skills better than ours... Every single one, he created a siege mentality within a club, he doesnt suffer fools and players are banished for mistakes, wonder how he would get on with Seri, Le Marchand and Anguissa..?

Ari if waping means that TV money has spoilt the game in England, I would like to say that I agree, but I don't. In so many parts of the world the EPL can be seen by enthusiastic supporters on TV. This is why commercial outfits like Sky, BT and numerous streaming companies and pirate outfits scramble to make money, which, as we all know is the source of all evil. In the commercial world we choose to live in, there will always be winners and losers; and like always, we the punters are the biggest losers. Many football clubs outside the top, say 6 EPL teams, are to a lesser also losers as the really big money goes to the top teams. The threat of a super European league ensures that the top 6 dictate the rules while the FA can do nothing. Teams outside the top 6 are fodder, games that provide exercise and even more money. It's the same all over, company directors set their own inflated incomes, footballers chase the highest pay, corruption is widespread. The government could intervene but doesn't. Ask yourself why, then switch on the TV, sit back and enjoy; a bit like the inevitable rape.

You don't think the TV money has warped the game in England? I'm at a loss to address that one. What has worldwide audience figures got to do with it? Traditional support for English football has been trashed in favour of those who can cough up 74 quid to watch a game; thee quarters of the premier league are, as you say, cannon fodder while the lower leagues, the amateurs and the schools are starved of cash. The PL in its current hyperinflated form is an abomination and an affront to those supporters who truly are the bedrock of the game and essential to its future development. Contrast it to rugby and weep. The PL has become a predictable, boring tourist attraction sponsored in the main by the gambling industry and inhabited by overpaid and overrated imports to the detriment of home grown talent.

I for one look forward to the day that the top 6 breakaway good riddance to the arrogant bastards. Let them set up their European Super League, there are more than enough big city clubs left to help us return to the old league structure of divisions 1 to 4. Sunderland in the third tier which I refuse to recognise as league 1are a perfect example, take a look at their away following this is real passion. Not a bunch of tourists wearing the latest over priced shirt of one of the global franchises, sitting back and watching from the comfort of their home on a ridiculously large tv screen. Hopefully we would see a return to a fairer more competitive system and maybe even the domestic cup tournaments might return to their former glories. The FA Cup once again at the forefront of the English game. These greedy financially driven franchises are not holding us to ransom they have the brains to know when they are better off. Unfortunately They have neither the bollocks or the inclination for a full scale breakaway mores the pity.

Spend a fair amount of time in Sunderland, if you could bottle the passion for the team from the whole City, you would make a fortune. Unparalleled in my experience.

My point Ari, is that football belongs to everyone but has been taken over by Murdock and Co (who want to control us all, as in Blair, phone tapping, Cameron and so on). The problem is MONEY, lots of it. It is easy to understand. If I earn £200 a week anywhere in the world and I'm offered £2000 a week to play in England what do I choose? Easy to understand Ari, especially in the USA where MONEY is King.

I can see the likes of Sky etc getting this all wrapped up like they have and then turn round in 18 months or so and telling the FA they can only afford to pay half the amount they had promised to . Up the creek without a paddle springs to mind

Just woke again the same awful dream The team we all got to love in the second half of the 2017:18 after Mitro and Taggart joined, are discarded and the promotion money is wasted on a bunch of moneyball signings that SJ has a problem getting going and then rather like when Magath replaced Rene we get a clueless Italian (not German) to replace him and again we get relegated Obviously clueless as when asked by the media if we can survive says if course this team was so great last season without realising that that team had all but gone Silly I know, how would anyone have so little faith in a team that was the best, even better than Wolves (who kept their squad) in the second half 17/18 and only lost last game when Taggart was obviously so unwell. You would not throw that away. Dreams getting crazier last week dreamt we signed Ronaldo

Downbeat: Cairney accepts Fulham need to boost their morale Tom Cairney believes a go-karting session could be just what Fulham’s struggling players need to boost their morale as they continue to fight against relegation. Claudio Ranieri’s side remain seven points off safety after they were beaten 3-0 at home by Manchester United on Saturday. They have lost five of their last six Premier League games but now have 12 days to prepare for their next match, at West Ham. And Fulham captain Cairney believes the squad would benefit from a team-bonding session away from the training ground to boost the players. “There’s a belief but the feeling in the dressing room after games is low,” said Cairney. “It’s hard picking everyone up all the time, it is difficult. Only wins can change that. We need it sooner than later. We’ve got a little break now between games, so it starts at the training ground. Maybe we need a team meal or a team bonding session, go-karting or something like that to get away from football and change things up. “There are no plans but I’m just chucking up ideas because I think sometimes you can get bogged down. There’s only so much running and tactics you can do, it’s about getting fresh minds and team morale. There’s not too much pressure: pressure is a privilege.” READ MORE Martial dubbed 'the French Ronaldo' after 'fantastic' Fulham goal Fulham 0-3 Man Utd: Pogba and Martial send United fourth Cairney started on the bench against United, only being brought on in the 77th minute, with Fulham already losing 3-0. Ranieri has preferred using the midfielder further forward rather than in a central role, but Cairney admits it has not been easy adapting to the Italian’s playing style. “We try to play the way he wants: fight and play quicker than we used to, but we’re still not in a good position at the moment,” he said. “I always want to play every game. That’s what I worked so hard last season for, to play against Man United and teams like that, so I was desperate to get on. I came on for 15 minutes, it was okay but the damage was done by then.” Ranieri was booed during the defeat, while chants of “You don’t know what you’re doing” were clearly audible after the Italian replaced Andre Schurrle for Cyrus Christie with the score 2-0. “When you’re playing, you don’t really hear much,” added Cairney. “It’s more when you’re on the bench, you hear what the fans are saying, but it doesn’t affect the players.” Cairney, though, remains positive and hopes deadline-day signings Lazar Markovic and Havard Nordtveit will help reinvigorate Fulham’s team spirit. “We need them to hit the ground running,” he said. “Fresh faces help at a time like this.
Replies
I found this somewhere on the web, and i know it is classed as useless info, but it is going to be a long fortnight folk. I hope Cairneys idea can work. Would like to see Lazar Markovic and Havard Nordtveit make their debuts... P.S. My long sabbatical strike is now over. Normal service resumes. Tom Cairney is forgiven because he at least is trying to gee-up the lads and be a captain. My original gripe was news that Cairney wanted to play our Slavisa style passing game which i do like, but not if it is contrary to how Ranieri wants us to play. Is that some reason to our confusion on the pitch? I have gone off Ranieri and he isn't for Fulham long term. He won't be sacked until the close season i think, so we really need everybody to pull together if there is still a squeak... GO KARTING HERE WE GO!!! HAVE A GO' IT IS FUN APPARENTLY!!!!!!

Thanks for accepting my apology, it thought me a lesson to watch what i write. If i had to pick a manager, i will wait until a few games more are played. I have got this feeling that we may just make history by appointing Slavisa back in the Championships? He is popular with the fans and we didn't know how good we had things until it was taken away from us. Sean Dyche got Burnley up and was relegated, and back up again. It makes good sense to appoint Slavisa again and that would boost players morale. If i go with 4 players, i would go for Richo, Chambers, Steven Sessegnon, Kabano, and wait for it''' AK-47 Kamara. Assuming we are back in the Championships???

Now I know the football world has gone, barmy, ramsey of to Juventus for 400 a week, you sure? he was not wanted by Arsn, so just how good is he?, no other club moved any stones for him,he scores some times ,had good game , sometimes ., .
Replies
I would agree just dosn't make sense. He is currently on £100K a week which is £5 million a year. Comparing this to other players in a similiar position would sound about right . Juventus is paying £20 million a year for 4 years so £80 million in total and he will be 32 at then of it so there is no real transfer value at the end and if he is poor or dosn't fit in they wont be able to move him on as I would not be going anywhere like China if someone was going to pay me that sort of money to live in beautiful Turin for 4 years. Madness Aguro and Kane are on roughly £250,000 a week.

I won’t shed a tear if these big clubs go bankrupt and disappear without trace! They are killing football and the smaller clubs with such inflated salaries! Like man United with Sanchez, all their players now want £300k min. If Ramsey is not the second best player in Juve, all other players will also want £300k a week min! This inflation will push down the league! So would luv it if these clubs run into financial difficulties!

Ramsey did us damage the first time we played Arsenal this season with a wonder goal. He is a luxury player but still a good footballer. To be fair to him, Arsenal didn't want his services anymore. I couldn't believe what they want to pay him but fair play to him. If Juve are daft enough to pay that kind of money, he will take it all day long. Ramsey is another player along with Gareth Bale that boosted Colemans CV...

After a couple of years of disappointing transfer deals , the club have said in future they will actually look at players performing rather than just going by statistics and agent reviews . They have accepted their policy in the past has been naive and probably too trusting , thinking that any purchase over £10m had to be good . They are also considering updating their statistics to have an entry for past or present medical issues as they have found too many incoming players are carrying injuries that the club were not aware of . The Club have said it will be carrying out a root and branch review of their transfer policy for the future with particular emphasis on signing players early in the transfer window rather than on the coach on the way to the next game .

Was there any specific mention of only signing players with two legs though? If not, that could be the get out clause.

If the Khans open their eyes, the way we are playing at the moment will be impossible to get us out of trouble! Ranieri was brought in to stop leaking goals and frankly at best get some draws. We can see that isn’t working and even if magically start to work at the next game, draws are not good enough to save us. We have to get wins. Infact we need another 6 or 7 wins plus some draws to stand a remote chance. So what is the point of continuing with the current plan. I like to think Ranieri can see that too. So what options we have. We’ve left it too late to bring in Alladyce. He can get you draws. We have to attack. So we have 3 realistic options. 1. Ranieri changes his tactics immediately. 2. Bring in Parker to change the systems. 3. Bring in a new manager who can motivate (how about a big contract for mourinho - he won’t come but coming to Fulham would be a win win situation as no one expect us to stay up) and create an immediate impact. To the owners - Please do something and don’t wind the clock down!

Fulham should fire Ranieri and rehire SJ so to team can prepare for the Championship and a quick return the Prem.
The team is going to be relegated, no doubt about that. Just play guys who are not on loan so we can see who is worth keeping.
Just an idea that has been bouncing around my head.
Replies
Neither the Khans nor SJ would ever give up their enormous pride and even consider this notion. Let’s start fresh. Find someone young and innovative, both at the helm and on the pitch. Our squad will be completely turned over most likely next season and rightfully so. The new players aren’t good enough and our promotion heroes that still remain will never go all in again wearing this shirt after their treatment this year.A nice 3-4 year rebuilding project with young and hungry players and manager is in order. Stave off a second consecutive drop next season and we can build from there. Gotta avoid FFP issues like we’ve experienced the last time we dropped. We all gotta hope the Khans are learning some lessons. We pull a Sunderland and we’ll be wandering in the wilderness for years. This summer will be nerve wracking for all of us without a doubt.

Thanks AZ. Article sums it up nicely. Doesn’t look like they’re ready to throw in the towel quite yet. Going to have to transition to 2nd division preparation at some point rather soon. Can’t possibly include CR could it?

Thank you Arizona for the website address. I have now read the article with great interest, and it has certainly opened my eyes. One big conclusion to my mind, is that it is now imperative that to give us what little chance of survival we have, that Claudio is given the big heave ho, before we play West Ham, otherwise it's all over for us.

Mawson? He who injures himself doing up boot laces. Mitro and Chambers in a 5 a side team? And Babel, not convinced. You 0 - Me 2

From from being a safe bet ( as described by Chairman Khan ) it was a risk . We are either getting a genius ( as with Leicester ) or a joke ( as with many clubs where his appointment had been rather less than successful including the Greek national team - he was dismissed after they lost at home to Faroe Islands with the players complaining they did not have a clue what tactics they were supposed to be playing as they changed all the time ) . Unfortunately we have the Joke , totally clueless , destroyed whatever unity we had in the club . Keeping Cairney on the bench against a footballing side like United was just crazy . How can anyone in their right mind choose Seri who has constantly produced nothing over Cairney . Sess has had his confidence well and truly stuffed , looks a shadow of the player we know he is . We deserve to be where we are , poor management from top down . 100 plus goals conceded by season end and 24 points if we are lucky .

I agree on Ranieri. But even after winning the Premiership with Leicester- he turned into a joke and was fired, He said in an interview after the United game “I was happy with the first ten minutes” , has anyone told him the games are unfortunately 90 minutes! Looking at our remaining fixtures, I can see possible draws against Southampton(A), Watford(A), Everton(H) Cardiff(H) and maybe a win last game at home to Newcastle ( we’ll be down by then so no pressure! So I think your 24 points is spot on. When we escaped in 2008, we had players who were prepared to fight, and a decent manager. This bunch of dis-interested mercenaries- including CR, don’t give a s**t.

Hi all FFC fans see khans still have no idea as CR still here or is it they want us down so they can have the payments whilst they build the new Riverside stand or buy a new database as the current transfer model database is crap as it does not understand football that's why we spent 100 m on crap) apart from Mitro. The players also have to fight and show passion like our team last year before it was dismantled now we have this lot. As too why Tom and Ryan are on the bench and others from last season whom are FFC are disregarded only the Manager knows but excuses of flu used by CR are lame why play them when fit players are available then the tatics and substitutions are an insult to us Fans whom pay good money to watch this crap I spent 50 years supporting FFC so been there when we almost got into the conference league and in Hamburg to other extreme so where is our teams passion and fight and management direction

We have been on a downward spiral since august on and off the pitch, next season will be the taste test to see if the khans know what they are doing. I just hope we don't sell all our senior players and play just kids when back in the championship cause it will be the definition of madness repeating itself like the Magath days. We should know what is needed if we do manage to get promoted back up to the prem again. Jokanovic hasn't got a job at the moment, get the agreement in place now just incase Ranieri isn't here next season.

Religation almost certain,but as far as retaining existing players,for me big ?.If I would like us to retain "Metro"But freeing up most of our squad could raise what 80/100m,the problem of re investment is we need a knowledgeable guy who can put together a squad to bounce straight back how about ROBERTS DUNK RODEK FREDERICKS TARGET and bringing in young MATT,2 of, we allready have how much the rest tops 30m
