something doesn't sound right about this post. It's offensive and I think it's bordering racism if not, this is how it all starts. It would be more acceptable if you say get Khan out of here..

Are we throwing any chance of promotion away this season, with our great knack of giving away late goals ? Because of a family occasion today, I as unable to get to Craven Cottage, but I had my mobile at the ready, and when we scored with 4 minutes to go, I was willing the last 5 minutes away, and then my heart sunk when Boro' equalized. Gutted, and another lovely day here spoiled, by our result.

We'd be 4th with 17 points if we didn't throw our home games away in the last 5mins of the match!!! Have we been here before 2 seasons ago??

Personally, i would have taken a draw before the boro game,and yes'we should have won that one! Yes' it is a bit frustrating looking back at the game because we were the better team who created the more chances again. These so called tough matches coming up? I welcome them! Slavisa will work the lads harder again on the training ground, and go through all the basics again, what more can he do? Until it sinks in, and we learn to see a game out, all we can do is work harder in training! I can't put it any better than i have, Slavisa cannot do any more than keep drilling it into our players. We are not the worst Fulham team ever, and i believe the players are rueing their missed chances again! We had the worst set of fixtures ever to start this season, and honestly i couldn't see us picking up too many points with the start we had. It is what it is, and all i would say in the circumstances is, keep the faith! The blame game is not needed at this moment in time. Our season can go either way from here? And it is our choice to keep slating and criticizing the players? or we can brush off the disappointment and give the boy's some encouragement! The Burton game for me was the worst, because i could only see 3 points before we kicked off, but there you go. We ain't all that bad as we make out, and thats so frustrating about this Fulham team. Let's rally round together and go to the next game with the intention of putting things right...
Replies
Owen, you say let's move on to the next game with the intention of getting it right, but the problem iis we are not getting it right. No team with hopes of promotion should view a point at home as being a decent result !

Well another 70% possession game and only 1 point to show for all that endeavour. Lots of pacy wing play with balls lobbed into the box only problem there was no ffc player to slot home. It's fairly obvious to me and other supporters that's our problem. If we can see it why can't SJ? I would start AK47, he's a hustler and hustler and although he missed a one on one he rose high to head home (when was the last time we scored from a header?), a perfect example of having your forwards in the box. Listened to Norwood being interviewed on 5 live, he thought we were the better team and deserved the win. Not if you don't take your chances. Teams now know that if they concede they can hit us on the break and pull one back because we still have our heads in the clouds over our goal. Well that's my rant over. Owen apologies, I've written a thesis too!

Once again Jakonavic blames the players. "we had a chance to clear our lines 4 times he says"well Mr that's how you taught them to play , playout from the back regardless.Your tactics. To add insult to injury you state that there will be no plan B. Just more of the same. It beggars belief.Its you Mr who needs to change.

I grow more and more concerned about our form and in particular our home form. Last year our home form would have had us 12 in the table. This year could be worse.
Replies
It's now getting beyond a joke how we keep throwing points away in the last few minutes. Our home form is causing us to slip 9 points behind the table toppers. If we start to struggle in our away form as well, then our season will start to disintegrate. We have two hard fought away games coming up, and we need to avoid defeat in both of them to stay in mid table, if we lose them, then glances towards the bottom will start to creep in, and the next three home games against Bolton PNE and Bristol City, will take on giant proportions, and surely we are better than that.
posted by A C (Guest) - Saturday 23rd September 2017, 6:00 PM
 
Before todays game, i would have called that one hard fought! We should have won that one if not for conceding late again. Any games after Boro, shouldn't be more difficult. We just need to get our act together... If it isn't for putting the ball into the net? It's a case for conceding late goals! Maybe the penny will drop one day,that we are a half decent side that needs to get clued up and get our act together. There are not many teams that stand out in this championship as i see. We have played Leeds, Norwich, Ipswich, Middlesboro,which are tough run ins. I don't think the likes of preston north stands out as being tougher? We need Tom Cairney back especially, and to just carry on working harder to score goals ect...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Saturday 23rd September 2017, 6:20 PM
 
If Cairney's injury is the rumoured miscus in his knee, then this could take an awful long time. Coming back when not 100% risks aggravating it and making it worse. We couldxeasily be talking months

AK Grab his first goal for fulham! Now hopefully he can settle down. He skied a shot way over before that, and i think if he didn't score today,that might have been the end of him. I am afraid, our Achilles heel in our defence has come back to haunt us again! We need to concentrate and sort these relapse's in our game. I am pleased for Kamara though, and just for once, we can lay off our forwards, and blame somebody else!!!!
Replies
Problem is, next time it will be the forwards again, or the midfield or poor substitutions, or poor team selection or poor goal keeping or poor tactics, or bad ref. We always seem to get punished for any mistake or disadvantage. We could lose by a lone goal scored in the 5th minute, we could lose after being outplayed, we could lose after out playing our opponents and hitting the post twice, and just wait when we start missing the penalties. We must not forget that part of our misfortune. We could lose after a team sits back and let's us come at them via the channels.... Fulham could be the only team that has mastered the art of losing points through every conceivable way? What is wrong with our team?

Replies
Why not. Fulham are a bit boring now!! We bought ourselves another 2 years - the whole brexit thing might never happen cos by 2021, we would have another world recession, if not a nuclear war between US and North Korea, either one of events will trigger concern about UK leaving Europe, and we would just agree to stay in for another few years! Personally, I am a remainer but frankly I'd rather have some certainty either way than to drag on for another 4 years!!! So this 2 year extension is a bit pointless from my point of view !

Len, uber have been banned all over the world. I think if you look in to why they are banned, you may think differently. When your kids are on that bus that crashes because the driver has spent the night driving an uber, you would want to know why they are still licensed. The fact that drug gangs use uber cars to move shipments around London because they are less likely to be stopped by police. Or the fact that someone is raped every 11 days. Gun crime, kidnapping, it goes on and on. If you think I'm talking crap look it up. I've been fighting this for 5 years , trust me. But there are people out there that are willing to ignore this because they save a couple of quid. Shame on them. They are welcome to use uber because I wouldn't want them in my taxi anyway. Rant over. Good luck to the lads tomorrow. COYW

Just read MacDonald's post on FulhamFC. He may not be the most talented player in the team but he looks like a great leader. He was honest that Fulham basically played sh^t, didn't blame the defeat on the penalty but at the same time, challenging the decision. I heard on radio recently that a chap who analysed all the really successful teams in all sports in the 20-30 years, one thing that surprised him was all the great teams had a captain who was not the most talented or best player in the team. In MacDonald, I think we have a great captain!!

I would agree with this . Carney can motivate by skill , Mac can shake things up and he is slow to call out errors and encourage in equal measure . Plus he can put in some crunching tackles when required .
Parker did it for last few seasons , and Murphy before him . Sometimes the most skilful don't make the best leaders .

A brilliant captain is the player who stands up when everyone around him is losing the plot or under performing, willing to sacrifice his own game for the need of the team.

Roy Keane is the stand out example in this, a brilliant captain, a leader ON the pitch, took on anyone who kicked one of his teammates, look at the Highbury tunnel incident, if your one of the ten players standing behind him your feeling ten feet tall, he expected the highest standard and if you weren't giving it then you got a roasting, that is the epitomy of a strong leader of men.

That's why he cannot be a manager, the modern day player has all the power and would have gone of with stress if he bawled them out!

I don't see a big character in our team but the stand out leader by performance is Cairney.

See the new stand plans have surfaced again apparantly less seats more corporate and no surprise re submit of plans for approval !!! ( that should put it back for another 3 years reckon that lot down the road will have a new ground before we have new stand although to be fair past caring now doubt I will be alive to see it built !!!!!!! And I'm only 30 !!!! Let's win on Saturday could do with a good w/e for a change !!!
Replies
we are struggling to fill the current capacity can't see a business case to increase capacity. The reality is if we did go up, the stand can be erected within 12months or one extended summer. It will be a similar project to the one they did at Anfield where there's minimal interruption to the season.

posted by moreline (Guest) - Wednesday 20th September 2017, 10:39 AM
 
the plans will include spending a large amount of money on the two wings of the project but trying to fill the central area with a cheaper option or something that doesn't quite fit but does a job...

why should the building strategy be any different to the transfer strategy

Take a lot longer than that have to go through the motions of new plans and consents all the old ones have probably run out by now the boat club will start moaning about there wind again and the locals will have another petition that's just for starters if Khan has changed the plans then new ones to be agreed !!! Personally dont think ffc want a new stand at this moment in time so they won't mind the delays !!

Bit different big hitters building new grounds and stands but when you are little Fulham and there's a lot of wealthy people around you that want to live there but not have a football ground life can be made difficult as proved last time and that's just for starters but like the others not bothered now it won't happen any time soon!!!!

I don.t understand why the neighbours complain. Craven Cottage was built before any of them were born, and they can only see the Johnny Haynes stand which hasn't changed since then. It's like people who buy a house near a pub and complain about the noise.

It would make a nice change to see people who know a bit about football actually talking about football for a change...

I used to enjoy reading other peoples opinions on performances, signings and other club matters but people seem to be coming on here to talk absolute nonsense about totally irrelevant issues as they have nothing better to do and no one to actually talk to.

The moderators are on this site for a reason and they do a good job, give them a break.

Replies
So! We have 'Boro at the weekend and it would be Fulhamish to beat them by a good score however, somehow I don't think we have the cohesion or confidence in our team to go and actually do that.

I've seen a couple of 'Boro games this season and they look very good going forward and solid in defense so I hate to say it but I think the best we can hope for is a well fought draw.

Hope I'm wrong COYW!!

There's an invisible line between discussing tactics and transfers, and being a moaner. I'm happy to announce that I'm one proud moaner. I have however accepted our 12th position this season. So I expect a generous sprinkling of wins draws and losses. However, next season, I will expect all our players to have improved massively, as long as we don't make Malone mistakes again.

This site has become very controversial and unfriendly in recent months and not very Fulham friendly as to what it once was. We all used to have good discussions with each other as to which way Fulham fc was going, not always agreeing but still friendly and respectful towards each other, now it's become hostile.

Look on the bright side of the disappointing loss to Burton: we a one step closer to getting our 2 best players back from injury which will give the team the cutting edge (hopefully), and also, the nature of the loss will lead to a strong response against an unpredictable middlesborough team.

Anyone know when these 3 players will be fully fit?? These 3 plus Sessengnon (only because of his potential) are the 4 most valueable players in our team. We are desperately missing that quality. Looking at the statistic from the Burton game, like most games we lose, we bettered them in every number (some by many folds) except goals and shots on target (story of 2017!). We are missing the creativity and superb ball possession from Cairney. With Soares, we might be able Sessengnon lose on the wing and what a partnership they can form and with Fonte fit, hopefully we will be more clinical and able to convert the increasing number of crosses we make into goals. I can't wait until we have a full strength team to see if we really good enough this season! COYW

I think our boys will put it right against the boro at the weekend. Reams blog is a good read, and i think they feel genuinely that they let us the fans down! Fulham seem to play better against teams that come out and play their natural game. There are good reasons why some of the players were a bit off? Coming back from injury is a common one, and kabano was one of them. Honestly i could tweek out all the ifs and but's until the cows come home here, but the crux is, we had a stinker of a day against burton. We are not the first or the last team to have a bad day in this league, I think the likes of ojo will want to prove a point, and so will the rest of the lads. Expect a positive reaction from our guy's next game...
Replies
The team wasn't that bad overall, but the front 3 ( kebano,oyi & ayite ) were poor again.Oyi & Ayite were not only poor technically, their commitment & work ethic were very poor. Oyi seems to think he's here for a bit of practice. They need to be dropped, with only kebano maybe being given one more chance. Fonte's obviously a starter if fit. But who do we play up front ? Kamara's nowhere good enough, Fonte's really an attacking winger. Who & whatever we may think is responsible, surely we can all agree that we had a bloody peculiar transfer window which has damaged our promotion chances. Even if we beat 'Boro we will still be a far more fragile outfit than at the beginning of the year.
posted by Bedrossian (Guest) - Monday 18th September 2017, 11:31 PM
 
Many years ago when we were fighting for promotion and on a good winning run, we went to Rotherham, who at the time were struggling for survival at the bottom, and we got bashed 4-0. We said then that our promotion push was over, but we finished as champions, so losing to Burton is a set back, but not a disaster as yet. I must admit though that I can't remember Gentleman Jim, being so down after a defeat. To him it was the end of the world. I really admire that guy.

Perhaps Mr Ron, Manager in charge of our team would like to take note, that Caudrey Woodrow who is not up to being good enough for our team scored against Derby at the weekend. If SJ doesn't fancy him other teams do and he certainly seems to score. Mind you we have got to stop giving penalties away and start scoring when we are award a penalty. Some hopes but I say get the lad back in our side and not out on loan. He's an Under England 23 player what is wrong with the lad?

It used to be standard for our players to say thanks to supporters at end of the game . Parker always used to lead them . Now its Kallas & Ream ,maybe Macdonald , Betts when he plays - the rest seem keen to get of the pitch quickly as possible . It should be drilled into them by SJ , maybe even showing example and pushing them back on .

I know we have more pressing matters to sort out as we are clearly not to the standard we were last year - we have become too predicable .

Clearly there is a number of people who post on this board who do not know the difference between what is illegal and what is a differing of opinions.

It is also clear that there are people who don't even realise they are racists because it was acceptable back in the old days to say or infer certain things about ethnic minorities. It was ok to beat the sh*t out of defenseless kids back in those days too!!

I don't mind taking the banter and will give as good as I get on the insults front but I do not want to be associated with people or a media responsible for the kind of behavior that is clearly racist and xenophobic and for that reason I will no longer moderate or post on this board.

I know that a lot of people will be glad of that and that's fine. It's just sad that some people cannot respect other human beings regardless of race, creed or colour and disguise it under jokes or inferences.

You're welcome to your board.......

The assertion that the head coach has had much influence over the poor quality transfers to the club & the loss of quality players from the club is I believe fanciful. Because:- SJ has repeatedly said that the club's recruitment is being run by Kline. This has not been contradicted by either the club nor Kline himself. SJ has not been publicly rebuked nor has he been sacked for repeatedly saying it. It is not credible that a successful manager like SJ would recruit in the amateurish lopsided way that our recruitment was conducted this summer. We do not have a "normal" statistical analysis set up at Fulham. We have the owners son's best friend running it. It is inconceivable that SJ would not want the best players he could. The players recruited hardly fit this description, even if some do improve in the future. Finally we know he fought to keep Aluko & was not pleased about Malone leaving. Just common sense.

I agree with a few reservations. We have to comply with the FFP rules, even though they benefit the top EPL clubs and not the likes of us. On the other hand our net expenditure was minimal last transfer window, and greater risks should have been taken to draft in a shed load of experienced championship players, not loanees nor wanabees. Having said that, who would have been available? For all we know, clubs could have inflated their players' worth when we came knocking. But what was most worrying was Jok's statement that his list of players was ignored by Kline, who hasn't a clue about soccer, and how to gain promotion.
posted by stephen terry (Guest) - Monday 18th September 2017, 4:04 AM
 
Mark my words. IMO, Jok will walk when the Jan transfer window brings in a few more misfits, not to his liking or on his list. If he was capable of getting Watford promoted, and taking us into the playoffs, his squad should be of his choosing (depending on cost, of course).
posted by stephen terry (Guest) - Monday 18th September 2017, 4:09 AM
 
I honestly believed they tried to bring decent players in but they either didn't want to move to Fulham or their club's didn't want to sell them. Case in point:

posted by MST (Moderator) - Monday 18th September 2017, 8:00 AM
 
I'm sure they did try to get more players on board, but as the OP said, stats are not the only way to do it and, IMO, should only be used to check out Jok's list of possibles as being suitable or questionable. I know from my playing days, as most ex-players on here will verify, that some players never seem to fit in, or if successful, don't always gel at another club. Even our 'better' players brought on board just don't cut it or cannot endure the physical demands of this league. That's why, IMO, tried and tested Championship players ought to have been targeted first of all.

I understand'we are all angry and upset about Fulham at the moment. We had a bad result against Burton, but let's not get over the top about this. Take a look at some other results around us also. Leeds losing, Derby losing, ECT. Burton can prove a banana skin sometimes, ask Man Utd. I believe they play each other again in that little cup soon. Did someone shout up for roy Hodgson? A great manager for us in the past, but he is 70 now, and Roy will feel the heat for sure, keeping Palace up this season. Maybe we can recruit Rednapp who failed for birmingham. Birmingham quickly accessed the situation concerning Harry, and they obviously have someone in mind to take over. Ronald Koeman just spent a bucket load of money trying to compete with the manchesters and chelsea's and is failing miserably. Maybe after they sack Koeman? We can put him in place of Jokanovic??? HMMM That dutch system doesn't seem to work in the english league judging by frank de boers efforts, so maybe he is out of the runnings! There will be a lot more twist and turns to come this season yet. I would advise with caution, not to upset the management applecart just yet. Give Slavisa Jokanovic some time to gel this Fulham team for pete's sake! Are we that desparate to get rid of him at this moment in time? That is complete rubbish equation that we have been sussed and found out, every team can be sussed and found out. We need to work harder on the pitch, and start scoring goals. We had one disallowed, and hit the bar ect. It doesn't mean we can't score goals. I felt like everyone did after that Burton result, and even i got a bit irrational, and we say things that we regret. Let's not turn our season into a bigger crisis than it is. There is still ample time to turn our season around. We should have expected a reaction like this after the great season we had last year. Unfortunately we didn't get promoted, but hey' we live to see another day. Let's get behind our lads, and yes' maybe we are a 1 man show with Cairney, who cares! I can't wat to see him back if that means we start to fire again.. COME ON YE FULHAM AGAINST BORO... CHEER UP FOLKS!!!!
Replies
Great post! Agree on all fronts. Just to add last season we also had a very sticky patch and we thought we just bought a bunch of mis-fits and rejects (aluko, Malone, Stefan, macdonald, etc), and do you remember the home match against Burton - we were very poor. But by Nov/Dec, the team started to really gel and the rest was history. I think we have a better team than this time last year, and we have some great players (fonte, soares, Cairney, piazon) to come back into the team. We may have missed the opportunity to walk away with the league but we still have every chance to finish in the top 6 if not the top 2! So i will calm down and hope everyone will do the same before we write off the new players completely!

I'm happy with our performance. This is enough to lead us to 12th position from which we can launch a proper promotion campaign for 2018-2019. By then Kamara, Djalo and probably Woodrow will be firing on all cylinders after this season. Also, we will have Gayle at half price by then and a few U23&U18s will have matured. So I think we are on target for 12th. We will easily hit our target with this current form.

It is not the results that are of concern but the way the team are playing. There is no cohesion or pattern and definitely no plan b. The transfer window brought in some very average players with stats that do not add up plus some were signed injured. Others are not being selected by the manager. Signing by spurious stats will not work in football like they do in american football or baseball. A long season ahead and only hope the manager can get it right quickly.

It will take the whole of this season for them to become a cohesive unit. Meanwhile, they are good enough to give us some wins and some draws to push us up to 12th. From what we did during the window, this seems to be our target. So we will achieve it easily.

Sometimes I think this message board should be called MST-web rather than Fulhamweb so many of you spend so much time commenting on my posts and opinions. I've even seen people start new posts with the headline MST for crying out loud.

Seeing as so many of you are so concerned with me and my opinions I thought I'd make my thoughts clear so that you can stop paraphrasing and assuming you know what I think!!

For your information I am not happy with the acquisition of Fulham Football Club by Mr Khan and neither do I think using statistics alone is the right way to acquire new players. I do however, realise that continually moaning about it on this board will bring no changes to the ownership so see no point in it.

Although Slavisa Jokanovic likes to play the same tune on an old fiddle regarding his involvement in player recruitment I do NOT for one minute believe his involvement is zero. Neither do I believe that there are two people sat in an office playing so called "moneyball".

I am totally convinced that Jokanovic will identify the type of player he wants in the position that he wants to fill and then a team of scouts will find players that they have seen play for their clubs many times to present to the Board who investigate from a statistics point of view. I also believe that the information regarding those players is presented to our coach before a final decision on recruitment is made. It is our Head Coach, in my opinion, who wants wingers - not the Board.

That leads me to believe that Jokanovic is as culpable as anyone in our results as he chooses the tactics to play and the players in his team to employ those tactics on the football pitch. Of course players and a team can have a bad game but blaming the board, for me, is well beyond the pale.

Now you have my opinion from the horses mouth can we please get back to commenting on Fulham rather than every other post by some people being about me and my opinions.

Grow up!!

Today's Arsenal line up has Giroud, Sanchez and Walcott on the BENCH. Just think about that for a moment all you FFC fans who harbour hopes to compete in the EPL. If FFC has any ambition to gain promotion to the EPL, for Christ's sake give Jok the players that can get us there. It won't be these three, that's for sure, but hardened and competitive Championship players, not wanabees and newbies that get injured first time on the pitch. If I was the senior Khan, I'd relegate those to the the subs bench.

I would like to pose a question to those more technically minded (which I am not as i simply watch with heart and emotion) in view that of late more and more teams simply go out to stop us playing our style of football. By elimination, does this mean that we simply go out each match to impose our style, which could be interpretated as somewhat arogant,and hence we do not go out trying to do what they do to us. the same question could be asked onother way. We never have a plan B.Fine, any suggestions?.

Buy a striker from a competitive league with good stats ( 20 goals plus a season for 2 seasons running ).

Learn from guardiola but not klopp. Man City may have sussed out how to play out systems and win, where Liverpool are similar are struggling to take advantage of the possession like we are!! Or maybe down to a decent striker. Neither us or Liverpool have a proper striker where Man City have Augero!! Nothing technical really!

I think we can play 2 systems either:- 4, 6, 0. or 6, 4, 0. Take your pick.

I even wonder what this means. Does it mean we are magically going to line up Neimars, Jotas, Forestieris and Dwight Gayles in the next match? Or that defenders who cannot defend are suddenly going to become rock solid? Or perhaps our manager is going to magically become a tactical genius that will change the game when QPR deploy their hatchet men while the ref ignores the painful groans of of our midfielders and wingers? Or does it mean that our strikers will magically take their chances. Unfortunately no. We will still lose two games draw 3 and win one. In so doing, drop vital points that will see us scrambling for playoff places, in which teams will shut shop, kick our midfielders and wingers, and hit us on the counter. We will have no reply because we have no other tactic up our sleeves. So we are at best... A championship team for the foreseeable future...unless something changes. But it needs everyone involved to seriously ask if they really want promotion or are just satisfied with being in this league. We are Fulham supporters we will keep supporting our club, but please be honest about your ambitions. Do we just want a win here and there or do we want to dominate the league?

I think most Fulham supporters are frustrated. We have at last a quality head coach & good coaching staff. We had the "bones" of the best side in the championship, along with the most attractive football in the division. But we also have the owners son & his friend "managing" the club & it's recruitment policy based on "stats". Stats work to a certain extent in cricket,baseball & rounders, but not in "invasion" sports like football,rugby & drunken brawling etc. I wouldn't mind so much if they were good players with good stats & not only ( mostly ) bargain basement offerings. I think "stats" is why we have so many wingers with good stats & no forwards ( strikers with good stats are expensive ! ). We are ( were ? ) so near but so far. I don't think our owner appreciates how rare last season's form ( 2nd half Of ) and entertaining football is. Still, it's his "train set" & he wants his son & his friend to play with it. Sorry about the rant, but it's just so frustrating !!

I've decided to take a break from watching FFC. To start with draws at Reading (10 men) and Leeds (kick 'em to death and we'll win) was encouraging, possibly expected after last season but losing to Burton Albion indicates we are going backwards. I expect we'll be brilliant against Middlesborough but end up with zero points. I'm so fed-up reading that we can't score goals and need a central defender, I'm almost thinking we should call 'arry in now to help us beat the drop.

Signed up to watch live match v Burton Albion in Italy paid £11 only to find out can't watch live match on tablet or phone need desk top cheers probably just as well we are a very average championship team which is fine don't understand why so many people so optimistic I'm very proud to be a fulham fan great football but no cutting edge can't beat an average Cardiff team and then lose to a relegation team let's get real,mid table at best

Certainly, with this team we're mediocre and deserve to be mid-table. I expect Jok knows unless he gets tried and tested Championship recruits, the misfits that Khan and Kline provide won't get us promoted. Hence he'll walk at some point - probably after the Jan transfer window when yet another batch of loanees and no-goods land upon his doorstep. I'm sure K&K have little idea of how to build a promotion squad, which means taking a financial risk to attract suitable players for this division.

We just missed out on promotion last season, that we didn't was purely down to a lack of a striker, that we should have signed in the January transfer window. Then I thought, well never mind, Brighton reached the play offs but then they made sure that they didn't fail again in that situation, and then were promoted by finishing 2nd the next season. I had high hopes that we would do the same before the season started, but this season due to our lack of both investment and not getting a forward that can score, we are nothing but a not very good mid table side. If you look back over the past seasons, you will see how often the teams that finish 5th in the table in the one season, fail miserably in the season after, and this is going to happen to us. I am really surprised that we are still 7/2 with the bookies for promotion. If I was a bookie, I would be offering at least 50/1, as that is about right. We all now know in our honest minds, that we will definitely not be challenging for a top 6 spot now, and it's going to be just a waste of a season.

Sorry I should have said finished 6th in the table.

I don't see what MST's opinion has got anything to do with his moderating.

I wonder if MST is on Khan's payroll? I can't see anyone who could replace him as their number one fan. I think the two analysts should back off and team building decisions made over a beer with K the son and joka. First item on the agenda should be finding TC's backup/replacement.

MST if you think Sess is nothing special and the coach is crap and the board are fantastic with their transfers then I think you need to do the right thing and resign from moderator. You clearly know f@#k all about football and are making yourself look a mug!

Apology for the resign bit. Alcohol was involved by that stage!

Mst I correct in my opinion sess. Is not a left back has to be further up field must say I'm on the fence with him has his moments but would consider selling providing cash was used to bolster defence for starters not to concerned about goals at the moment expect us to come good like last season but we must not lose to teams like burton although that pen decision was disgraceful !!!

Apology accepted. Still don't put Sess in the wonder kid bracket though ;-))
