It’s been a nightmare couple of weeks!! Normally when things are going as well as you want, you’d find something to blame. And when things are going well, you want to celebrate! Unfortunately, I think Fulham’s display at Millwall reflects our feelings - Jakyl and Hyde!! We should be celebrating the fact Fulham are unbeaten in 23, winning most of them, and putting in a great performance in the 2nd half against Millwall. But we are all feeling a bit rubbish because Cardiff just keep coming back and it looks like we’ve ran out of games to get the automatic! And we know the play-offs is always a bit of a lottery and sometimes quality doesn’t count. So I am not sure anyone of us know how to feel - hence we are all a bit MUTED and frankly just want to bury our heads in the sand and come out in 4 weeks time to find out the result! I can’t predict anymore scores - too painful!

Hi Gents.....glad too ser you are carrying on your form I am afraid though you should expect no help from us.Yesterday we did put some effort in at least which has been sadly lacking in the last two games but were beaten by the better team.We lack anything up front apart from Lawrence who is finding some form,Vydra has lost form and appears to be feeling sorry for himself.Defensively we are conceding was goals so not a great picture,however this is football we may though unlikely find a modicum of form and surprise us all.

Derby owe it to themselves first of all, and with some hard work and effort, can force themselves back into a playoff spot. I would play that pacy guy Palmer from Chelsea from the start. Rowett gives too much respect to his first 11 which is all fine and dandy. If plan A isn't working, he needs to come up with a plan 'B'. At this stage of the season, there are tired legs on both sides. Why not inject some pace in from the start? We can do no more than win our last 2 games, and it is up to Cardiff who have 1 foot into the prem. It depends on how much you want it now, and Derby players seem like they are giving up. That guy Keog who was dropped is a bit calamity, but he tries 100% and maybe he should play against Cardiff, nuff said!

Problem is we changed system yesterday did not help much Palmer is injured and only good a half hour currently.He has loads of ability is still naive in certain situations but I would not be surprised if Rowett throws him in from the start.As for Keogh and I am no great fan he is not as bad as other teams think it is just the way he looks that does not help him.But his mistakes are always big one's take a look at boro's second goal and how Keogh leaves his man ..terrible.Thing in your favour is this could be thanks to Colin spouting off the game they desperately want too win.

Do Derby want a play-off spot or not? If so, they have to run through brick walls and beat Cardiff at home.

To be honest cardiff lucky last night won't get away with that on tue which means your right back in it , production you get six points we pick up 3 possible 4 it's down to the last game of the season
Replies
Radio report yesterday said that Notts Forrest were the better side, and should have won the game by at least a goal. The trouble is that Cardiff are playing crap matches, but they are still managing to win. If, as now seems possible, they get promoted and we don't, it will be a real football travesty.
posted by A C (Guest) - Sunday 22nd April 2018, 3:01 PM
 
Not quite, as we're (and Cardiff) guaranteed a play-off spot at worst. While it would be great to gain automatic promotion, I'm looking forward to a Wembley final (should we beat 6th place). And that means it's in our own hands.

Barnsley v Brentford Hull v Cardiff 6th May Birmingham v Fulham Millwall v Aston Villa Ipswich v Middlesborough Cardiff v Reading Derby v Barnsley Preston v Burton Brentford v Hull Bristol City v Sheffield Utd Where is ones money going??

Obviously Cardiff have that 2nd place in the bag, which leaves us in 3rd, then Villa, Boro, and (our biggest fear) Brentford in 6th. Think the final will probably be Villa vs Brentford, with Villa taking the last promotion place

The fat lady isn't even warming up yet Zippy, so it's un-wise to predict anything - this season still has twists left mark my words. All we can do is win our last two and pray those sheep shaggers slip up, as the saying goes..." Many a slip, twixt cup and lip" (Some will have have to google this lolz).

Also don't forget Cardiff have to play Derby away on Tuesday night, so, they're gonna be tired after a Saturday evening game and more importantly Derby will be desperate to get into play off places and will give it their all. Prediction: 2-1 Derby. So, Cardiff remain on 86 points. As for Hull, Cardiff will have to play again only 4 days later and it's another away game with a long tiring journey of 4 hours, so assuming they travel up the day before they will still be tired. Prediction: 1-1 draw. and 1 point gained. Total: 87 points. Fulham play on Friday against relegated Blunderland after a near full week of rest, and with the best will in the world I can't see any result other than a thumping. Prediction: 2 or 3 Nil- Fulham 88 points and we go second. So on to final game. Cardiff play Reading at home and fair do's I'll give them a home win. Final points tally - 90. Fulham play scum Brum and I truly believe we have the calss and motivation to beat them, so 3 points. FFC final tally 91 points. result we go up. Another potential outcome is if both teams draw Fulham and therefore 1 point to each team we would go up on goal difference. One word : logic. Of course we we can still do it we have to believe and so must the lads. Taxi for beach.

Of course we can still do it. Some might think unlikely.....but the stats say we CAN still do it, no matter how improbable. You’re either an optimist or a pessimist, it’s that simple. As I have been clearly saying, in the face of the gloom and doomers....we will finish second. I would point out when I first said we would, we were maybe 10/12 points adrift. Living in hope is not a crime, it’s what comes naturally to a committed supporter.

If someone had said to me back in December after we got beaten by Sunderland that we have a run like we have had and that we would be in the position we are in right now I'd have taken it - end of. Another thought, even if we don't get auto spot and we get beaten in the plays offs then simply I'd say we don't deserve a place at the top table. I just cannot see that happening though as we have a superb squad which is a class above last season and I can guarantee you that any of the teams that would have to face us in the p.o's would be sh*tting more than just bricks I can tell you.

Predictions are of no relevance until after Tuesday's Derby v Cardiff match. The outcome of that game, will surely influence our season. Oh how I regret that last seconds Brentford goal. Without that, I feel that we would have been up already. I really hate that mob.

Anything can still happen. You are not going to win every game playing twice a week and staying unbeaten in 22 games is quite phenomenal, Also note that in last 5 games we have only conceded 1 goal. So Cardiff still have to go to Derby and Hull and if they play like last nightI cant seeing them getting 6 points. Derby really need the points so they will up or it and have decent strikers, Hull will be just enjoying their final home game, nice and relaxed. So just pray for 2 Cardiff away draws and job done!

cardiff looked pretty shaky last night , , at home against an average notts team , nerves are stretching , still need 2 wins from 3 games , 2 of which are away, i bet it dont look easy from cardiffs view of things , and like there centre half said after the game ,, fulham keep on winning ,, coyw ,,ps dont worry about mst , he just likes 2 be right , more than he likes auto promotion

It's like the donkey being tempted by the carrot, we go forward one step, and then back two, it's getting very frustrating. The radio report says that Cardiff were terrible and full of nerves, and that they were very lucky to win this one. The trouble now is that Derby lost at home today, and they have gone right off of the boil, and Hull let in 5 goals against Bristol City, so neither of these sides seem good enough to hold a lucky Cardiff. Bah ! ! Play offs here we come, and another Championship season beckons.

What a ray of sunshine and optimism you are to wake up to on a sunny Sunday morning MST. It’s getting to look like you want us to fail to reach second place just to prove you right. Not a good look!! Cardiff were poor last night, really we’re lucky to get 3points. Hull whilst letting in 5 scored 5. Derby NEED to beat Cardiff to qualify for the Play Offs. Everything still to play for.

I would much rather be a naive optimist than a fully paid up member of the realist club. I believe that the gloom and doom merchants are going to be equally gutted if we miss out on second spot so really where is the harm in hoping for the best.

Think you’ll find there’s more chance of Brentford taking the 6th spot. Both Derby and Millwall have two very tough fixtures. Brentford have easier games.

I was thinking earlier on who was the smaller Club QPR or Brentford, and then realised they are equally small. I know there is always room for small clubs in any town, but wouldn’t it make sense for them to merge to make just one small club in West London, any thoughts on what they could call themselves ?

Made me laugh last night with both the BBC and Sky Sports saying that The Den was a sell out. Anyone with the eyes of a foetal ant could see that behind the goal, where FFC were on the top tier, it was empty bar 3 knuckle draggers, also, as the capacity of the ground is supposed to be 20k and the attendance was 16k it kinda stinks of crap reporting. Been on the Millwall site today - https://millwall-forum.vitalfootball.co.uk/ - am loving it. Fecking bad losers.

Only gave ffc top tier !,, could have done with a few more hope if we arrive there in play offs we get more. Well done travellers great support out sung home fans at times great night all round (why did we allow bitters and plkeys to get away with draws we would be promoted now !!!

Now now Len the hard facts are that we blew 4 points which may well have cost us automatic promotion. But on the plus side if we play like we did in the second half of last nights game none of the other sides in the play-offs will beat us!

Respects to the great Roy Bentley, who has just died , remember the day he arrive as a striker at the cottage from Chelsea and then got injured, some time after got converted to center back and there were calls (from the crowd) to play for England in that position even though he was getting on a great warrior.

Saw your comment on the "wall" site. You were one brave little Reginald, all the way from marbellya weren't you. They were saying good things about us & our working class supporters. Their fans are good salt of the earth people for the most part. They only gently criticised the metro mangina "clappertwats" that attach themselves to our home games. They shouldn't have to put up with foul mouthed gloating on their forum any more than we should.

Southgate would be a fool not to take Sessengnon to the World Cup!! Some people say we cannot make the same mistake that Sven did who took Walcott in 2006. Rubbish! We cannot compar the two situations. Walcott did not play a senior game when he was called. Sess has played over 70 games. Sess has scored over 20 senior goals. Sess will be marginally older by the summer. Walcott was a complete wildcard. Sess won’t be an showed he can managed and look after himself. I thought he handled the boos and abuse exceptionally well last night. The argument he might not get a game is also a complete rubbish. Many squad players will also be there just to warm the bench. If we need a bit a spark come 70mins, can’t think of anyone outside the likely starting 11 better than Sess. Lastly, Southgate has a chance to forever know as the England manager taking Sess to the World Cup, at personal level, he’d be a fool not to take him!!

As a Fulham fan for over fifty years I have experienced everything with our glorious team. However I don’t think that any Fulham fan has seen a run like this in their lifetime and at times breathtaking at any level. Yes slight setbacks QPR Brentford but this second half slowed real clinical class from without doubt, the best team in this league. We will go up whatever and everyone should be proud at the turnaround since Christmas as most of us felt no chance of promotion at that time. To all the doubters trust me I sense we are definately unstoppable. Enjoy the sun but enjoy Fulham more. Proud of my team Kevin.

As an American, I became a Fulham fan during the McBride era. The highlight for me was the Europa League run under Roy. I love that team, and the magic of beating Juve and other big clubs. This season has been the best since that run, hands down. Slav is our best manager since Roy. This team deserves to go up. Let's hope the football gods see it the same way.
posted by Drago (Guest) - Saturday 21st April 2018, 1:19 AM
 
McBride - loved him. Mitro is best fwd since BM and that includes Berbatov. No surprise we have done well with a strong front man who applies pressure to the defensive line throughout the game, holds the ball well and knows where the goal is. Zamora should get a shout as he was brilliant as well, esp against Juve. Brian turned us round for the great escape with his goal against Reading. Great times and here we go again.
posted by Phil (Guest) - Saturday 21st April 2018, 9:07 AM
 
Yup Drago, let's hope. This group deserves it. Fantastic footballing side we have. Would be able to hold up reasonably well in the prem as is if we get there but we would add. The "great escape" would be my go to YouTube viewing. Will never forget listening early morning when Danny Murphy netted at Fratton Park to keep us up. Can't wait for an epic May afternoon at Wembley. We will do it!

Great finish from Fulham and perfect 2nd half. Its all about tempo, and if we play lethargic like that first half, we might not be so lucky if we need to do it through playoffs. If we always press and score that 2nd goal, we will finish most teams off. Happy for Kevin Macdonald who scored a spectacular and deservedly got his MOM. Kalas and his scorching run was what we needed with 2 goals up. Just carry on as we do and win all our games, then it is all in the hands of Cardiff. The unbeaten run goes on and on! COME ON FULHAM!!!!

After the first 45mins I can’t help but wonder if we will repeat last year and peaked just a bit too early! Wow. How glad I am wrong and Fulham showed, not only we haven’t peaked yet, we have taken it to a new level! All three goals were amazing! Sessengnon’s goal looks better and better when you see it in slow mo. What about Mac! Where did that come from. The only borrow bit about us is so predictable Mitro scores again! Awesome! Shame the game is ruined with some very dirty play by Millwall! They probably forgot they were live on television! Well done!

Being on TV I know I cannot watch the game on Fulham TV but am I able to get a commentary anywhere? BBC text just doesn't cut the mustard.

I still believe our confidence level is still sky high. I also believe we do still have the mentality to keep on winning. What I am concerned is our energy level and fatigue maybe kicking in. I know this is also true for all teams so that cannot be an excuse. However, given our squad is much bigger than most clubs, we should maximise it to our benefit. I know its a risk starting the likes of Ojo, Norwood, piazon, Kabano because we've almost had the same starting 11 for the past 21 unbeaten games. But I think we have to freshen the starting team a bit since we have higher risk of losing due to fatigue than not having out best 11. We need to keep our physical level high tonight. So let's play the same style but bring start with the likes of Norwood (instead of Johansen maybe), bring on Christie and don't mind if Piazon stays on again. COYW. Millwall are good but not that good!
Replies
Stale is what I would call it and at this stage of the season its a question of stike with what you know. After last week's affairs if that dosen't tell you that being 1-0 up and resorting to stupid time wasting tactics when the opps score that 1. there's no time to reply and 2. the momentum is always with the side that have just equalized. NO more take the ball in to the corner and see time out, lets go for the jugular like last season, if we have learnt anything from last week DON'T mess about time wasting.COYWs Millwall 1-3 Fulham

Spot on FF. In injury time KEEP THE BLOODY BALL and deny the opposition possession. No hoofing ooop park,keep your head and frustrate opponents.And don't sit back on a 1-0 or even a 2-0 lead. Go for the jugular and kill the game off otherwise you WILL be bitten hard on the derriere-seen it time and time again. Last Sat felt like a loss because we had it in the bag with seconds to go. Hope to christ we don't do the same tomoz if we're in a similar situation.
posted by marbella white (Guest) - Friday 20th April 2018, 10:47 AM
 
only if we did take the ball to the corner flag, the result could well be different. the fact is we didn't but we lacked a bit of strategy on managing the game out for the first time in a while. We weren't sure if we should keep the ball, waste time, hoof the ball, keep tight on them, park a bus, etc. We tried to do all. Look on the bright side, after the disappointment of Sunderland game, we went on a good winning run. After QPR, we went on a good winning run. So we can do it! COYW.

Mr Ryan Sessegon like all young players has the world at his feet on the threshold of life. My hope is that he will totally ignore the hype and concentrate on what is real. His family and friends. For what does WIZZ often goes BANG, there are lists of players who were going to set the world on fire - who will ever forget Ravel Morrison the next best thing at the time? Ryan Tunecliffe and Lanell Cole who came from United to Fulham with such a high pedigree and more recently the Luke Shaw saga which Mr Jose Mourinho ought to be ashamed of! What will keep Ryan Seeesgon at our club is if we sign someone like young James Maddison from Norwich and Matt Taggatt and some other better Premiership players who can help him to develope here at the Cottage! Manchester United (or City) can wait - who'd consider Tottenham Hotspur a selling team anyway?
Replies
In the last week there’s more columns printed about Sess than even Man City winning the prem. that’s how crazy the media has become!! All pundits feel they need to make some judgement on Sess. Newspaper knows he sells paper at the moment. I think Sess is way beyond the level of Morrison or Luke shaw achieved. He’s approaching the Mbappe level. That’s crazy! I really hope we can get promoted and he stays with us. That would be the best outcome for Sessengnon and increases our profile globally. Any moves for Sess is a massive risk on his career and to be honest, I don’t sense that he is money motivated or even bother about fame! Unlike Morrison and the other chap (I can’t remember the name) who went from Man City to Sunderland. The next best thing for Sess incase we don’t go up, he is bought by a big team but loaned back to us for another season!

what can the board do last year that Frederick refused to sign a new contract? If we sold him last year, many of you would have complained. Given how much some of you moaned about Malone, you'd gone nuts if we had sold Frederick. Board did the right thing (not very sensible interms of money) to keep him until contractually impossible.

Looks like a Winter break is on the cards. Does this extend to The Championship and do you support it? Lots of industries have forced holidays over Christmas and with players coming from all over the world these days it would give them the opportunity to spend Christmas with their families, or is this just another money grab that I haven't worked out yet? One of my least favourite Fulham memories was Mansfield away on Boxing Day where, bar the ground, nothing was open. We did win 2-0 nil though.

posted by Mike (Guest) - Thursday 19th April 2018, 7:31 AM
 
The important thing to remember is , it is a winter break not a XMAS break so the players would not be spending xmas with the family. Being a realist players are the most valuable commodity for a club and allowing them to play on a frozen pitch with subzero temperatures may not be a good idea. The problem here is that 2 weeks in Feb might not be when the worst of the winter arrives, they could have a winter break and come back to the beast from the east the following day. As for the argument they need a rest that is silly they can get that during a international break or rotate there players and if it does come in it should not be used to jet off to play exhibition games.

Your'e right Tezza it's not Christmas but they are actually considering a January break but spread over two weekends so that will not be any weekends without EPL games... go figure. The weather is bound to worse for one of those weekends so if you play in the worst weather there will be no end of moaning.. The EFL have already said they need as many weekends and weekday games as they get hold of to fit all their games in so no break for the lower divisions.

Like a fighting Roman battalion, let's get this Fulham road-show in motion!Friday night cannot be fright night,we are not going down to Millwall for tea and cakes.Too many of us fans are being pitiful. We have got to get it together both on and off the pitch. I would like to see a 4-4-2, and bring on the 'BEASTY BOY KAMARA!!! Now is the time to inject more pace! Fulham have more or less put the same squad out in recent games, and i just think that familiarity is a well-played video in opposition changing rooms now. Don't get me wrong, i like our system with Mitro holding the ball up. It has bagged him 10 goals so far this season, but we are always vulnerable hanging on to a 1 goal lead. I am surprised that it was only Brentford who seized on that slender 1 nil we scrape by on. Fulham are not killing teams off and to be honest, i am on tender hooks waiting for that final whistle to blow. If we are to go into the playoffs, and it looks that way 97%, we have inject more pace into our game. We are capable of slowing down the tempo when it suits us to do that, but sometimes we are inviting trouble playing too slow. We are starting to show signs of fatigue by playing too slow, especially towards the end of the 2nd half. We have fresh and hungry players crying out for games on the bench, and if we go down with another loss into the play-offs, we only have ourselves to blame. I dread to think it, but Fulham could well play Brentford in the playoffs, and if we don't, you can guarantee that somebody will replicate Brentford and seize the opportunity to come on to us like they did. How do i know this? It really is not rocket science, everybody watches everybody and how they play nowadays, and we have become very predictable. Let's man-up on friday night, and not only beat Millwall. Fulham are a classy team, and we have a talisman in Mitrovic. Mitro is a marked man, and yet he still averages 1 goal a game. I challenge the likes of Tom Cairney, Neskins Kabano to get on the score sheet. AK47 Kamara, we can do nothing about because he isn't selected, but those who are getting regular game-time need to step up even more now. We need to do a team 5.0, and friday night should be fright night for Millwall. Ryan Fredericks, come forth with your shooting boots on mate, you played at one time for Millwall. WE NEED TO SHOW WHAT WE ARE ABOUT, AND PUT SOME FEAR INTO OUR RIVAL PLAY-OFF TEAMS. COME ON FULHAM!!! WE CAN DO THIS!!! THIS IS BUSINESS, AND A MULTI MILLION POUND ONE, WAITING FOR US IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE!!! DO WE WANT THIS??? YES PLEASE WE DO!!!!

Another crunch weekend coming up as the season draws to a conclusion... last weekends results disappointing whilst the one before worked for us. Certainly a big weekend ahead but if we can take three points from Millwall game (and do the double over them) will take us back to 2nd place again. And why not...if we can beat Cardiff away from home why not Millwall albeit they’re on a good run themselves. Still lots to play for with Cardiff having three games in a week...two away from home so am expecting them to drop further points. Let’s keep believing folks...we’ve come to far too fail and broken all time records to get where we are with our talented group of players. So all the best to Fulham as we approach another crunchy one! But one way or another believing it’s Back2Prem...COYW we can do it!

Bitterly disappointed at saturdays outcome.Brentford came to spoil it for us and we let them. It seemed like we lost the game. How could we possibly have let them attack at 90 plus 4. Its unforgiveable and I think that has put paid to automatic promotion. Yes we have made the play offs and will most likely end up playing Villa in the final.I believe Villa want promotion more than we do. Last saturday was a real let down.I see no more than a draw at Millwall, and a week later I see us doing Colemans side a favour by actually losing to Sunderland and I wont comment on the last game at Birmingham. All in all we are better off in the Championship.What is it about us and Brentford, apparantly we havent beaten them at the Cottage the last 18 times.

Personally I think regardless of what happens in the next few weeks we will be in the prem this time next season as a promoted side for me this is a bonus reckon if we are in championship next season get of to a good first half of season get momentum up as we’ve done last two years top two no problem !!!!

Millwall have done better than anyone expected and after my prediction last game I think I better kept my mouth shut, but if we do not get at them from the off they will come at us and score. Neil Harris has done an excellent job down at the New Den but they do not have the players we have to field and we should be able to make the Cottage a fortress against such clubs COME ON FULHAM

We will win at Millwall, i am confident about that. I listened to Fredericks, and tuned in to Reams interview on FTV. Believe me' our boys are disappointed and feel that they let themselves and the fans down. Brentford came with an obvious game plan and it worked. They could have easily won the game, and we mustn't come out playing that slow and ponderous again. Most likely we will be in the playoffs, and just like a Reading last season, there will be 1 team that will suss us out. What we need from Slavisa is a plan 'B'!!!! I would play another striker and go 4-4-2. We need somebody to run beyond Mitrovic, because he will be marked and kept busy. Mitro can handle himself and he knows what to do. Bring on AK47 Kamara from the start and really rip into Millwall. It is about time that we really punished somebody. We have the resources and capabilities to score more goals and that is what we need to do. Send a strong message out there Fulham are nobodies mug, and we will be a threat in the playoffs! Let's stop being nice Fulham, lets go into overdrive on friday night. Send that message out by beating Millwall. 'WE ARE FULHAM'!!!!!

As we have a few days before th " fun" starts again BBC pundit thinks Ryan Sessegnon is good enough to travel with the England squad.Thoughts on this one gents?
Replies
Not in my opinion. There are several players better than him at left back and left wing and what is the point of taking a player that a) won’t play but b) will take the place of someone who possibly might. He has only just broken into the u21 squad for crying out loud; let him crawl before he’s expected to run....

Reminds me of when Sven took Theo Walcott to the 2006 WC instead of Defoe and then never used him. Surely it would have been possible to bring him along for the experience on international camp etc. Ryan would certainly benefit from the experience without the responsibility or without using up one of the few places available

Sess is competing with Sterling in the young player of the season, why not compete with him for the left wing position in the World Cup, where we will be knocked out before we get to quarter final anyway! Why not. Another £20m ,on top of the 40-50m, for Fulham! I think I am a bigger Fulham fan than England!

If we lose our last 3 games we will end up 3rd or 4th. If Cardiff lose 1 and draw 1 we could still make 2nd place. I think we will know for sure either on Friday (in our hands) or the following Tuesday (Cardiff v Derby). We should be congratulating Cardiff after their bounce back. They are a tough side to beat (FFC have done it twice). Recent home form has shown that our team is jaded. Young and fit, I think some players are mentally tired, possibly not sleeping well. We should have beaten QPR and Brentford governed the midfield with Smith (the redhead). What a player, definitely MoM. Once 2nd place is beyond us, I agree the team should be rested and we'll look for the lucky breaks needed to win the playoffs. I reckon our present side will not make it but hope I'm wrong. I'm just going on what I've seen. Millwall, in top 6 now, may well be too good for us. A break from the 'without loss' record could be our salvation.

Guys guys even if we don’t make it 2nd, we should be optimistic! I agree the team maybe a little bit jaded but still no reason why we should not be optimistic against any of the teams, including Millwall this weekend of in the playoffs. Personally I am not sure Millwall can make it, especially if we beat them this Friday. All the other teams, I’d think they’d rather swap place with us. So nothing to fear!

We should Keep chasing until it’s mathematically impossible to catch Cardiff. They are not Barcelona or Manchester City and neither are Millwall. It is still possible they may slip up through nerves with the big prize so close. All we can do is try to maintain the pressure and if we fail at least we would have no regrets in the knowledge that we did all that we could. All this defeatist/realist talk is quite depressing I need a large Jack Daniels.

John, agreed we should be optimistic, but we are being realistic. We have been here before (play-offs) and just bottled it. There is nothing we ALL want more than our team returning to the EPL where we belong. Our current team would survive well in the EPL playing our type of football. To get promoted from the Championship is another kettle of fish. Cardiff on paper have nothing in skill per player that compares to ours. What they do have is a manager that knows what it takes to get out of this league. You can buy better and more classier players once promoted. You need more stronger, mentally and physically adapted players to achieve a top two spot. This division is the toughest to crack and unless fully equipped to do so, will remain stuck in it for years. It is very rare to play yourself out of the Championship. Sorry to sound doom and gloom, but realism is being a Fulham supporter for yonks!! We are and have always been a 'nearly' team. Nice and friendly with a lovely little stadium by the Thames. Always have and always will be.......

It's not that much of a dilemma, is it? We need to win both of our next matches. If we do that, and Cardiff drop some points going into their final match, then we roll with our best XI. If we're out of it, bring back Kalas, Christie, Ojo, Norwood, AK47, Fonte, Kebano, etc. for the last match of the season. As for the season, if we don't get promoted automatically, the cause is pre-December results, not post-December. We were missing TC, Sess was still playing at left back, our strikers couldn't hit the target. It's a real shame Khan didn't invest over the summer and waited till January. But let's be honest. Wolves and Cardiff have earned their positions. We have relied on a once-in-a-lifetime run to even get into the conversation. Let's be positive about our prospects in the playoffs, if it comes to that.

With that last minute equaliser by Brentford (although honestly they deserved at least a point), and the Cardiff win at Norwich, I believe we must consign ourselves again to the Play-Offs. Considering where we were in early December, we would all have taken it then. I do however have concerns about our mental attitude following this amazing 21 game unbeaten run. We looked lethargic and not ourselves in the past couple if games. Scoring only one goal a game in the past 3 matches, compared with the previous 7 games scoring at least 2 on each occasion. The pace and attacking nature seems to be starting to revert back to the 'old way.' Slow, slow, tippy-tappy. I thought we had learned our lesson about Fredericks racing up the wing in injury time trying to hold onto a 1-0 lead. If we don't win all the 3 games left, Cardiff should beat us to the second spot. So, it's a Play-Off place again for us. Should we consider, especially after the Millwall game on Friday if we don't win, throwing in the second team, saving our strongest squad for the Play-Offs? As we have learnt, any team can get through these with a little luck. Have we been too good for it to last through to winning at Wembley? Would our nerves hold out? We can only hope so, as not sure what we will be left with next season if we don't get promoted. COYW ........
Replies
I don't hold too much validity in what we would have taken back in the day.

If asked after our first season in the Championship would we have taken being beaten in the play-offs in a coup0-le of years then of course we would have all said yes however, it was massively disappointing at the time and our season deserved better I felt.

It has been well documented that I never expected us to make 2nd place in any case as it has always been a massive ask so I can't be disappointed with 3rd (if we make it) or 4th. At least we will be at home in the second leg.

If you asked me pre-season however, what I thought was achievable, then I would have expected us to win the damn thing outright based upon the previous seasons form, what we had learned and the addition of new players (we had yet seen play). Who would have thought that Wolves would run away with it and Cardiff would have the season they have had back then?

I guess what I'm alluding to is, it is best, in my opinion, not to think about the past but concentrate on the present and as with all teams in this league, we have played a lot of games (particularly in the last two weeks) so it is expected that goals will not come so freely and that we might concede the odd goal late on. That will be the same for Millwall on Friday as well.

I still fancy us to get to Wembley and if we make it then it's anyone's on the day so keep supporting and keep hoping but "don't look back in anger" :0)).

Sorry but I would have said Wolves were a cert for promotion in September. If a championship side spends £25 million on players and gets in from loans another £40 million worth of players then I would be surprised of any other outcome. This will be investigated no doubt by the FA, a fine will be applied probably £5 million and Wolves will pay it out of the £100 million they get for being in the premiership. The shock has been Cardiff, fair play to them, I though Villa would be our biggest competition for 2nd place at the start of the season.
posted by Tezza - Monday 16th April 2018, 1:15 PM
 
Tezza I think You've simplified it. If you look at the facts of the matter it's nothing like you write and a lot of their players cost peanuts, are loan deals or are players that were already there. Yes I expected them to do ok but not walk the league like they have from pretty much day one...

All I am saying is how it looks , Cant think of another Championship side who does not have the premiership parachute payments to use and can go out and buy a £15 mil player (Neves) buy a couple more and get a loan deal for Jota (£12 million) N'Diaye (£5 Million) Boly (£5 Million) That is not a Championship squad that is a premiership squad.
posted by Tezza - Monday 16th April 2018, 3:18 PM
 
I think Millwall have been the revelation of the season, closely followed by Sheffield United, both promoted last season and both in contention for play-off places. In February I pointed out that Millwall were a fantastic bet for the play-offs at 66-1 (about 10th place in the table at the time). Now two months later they have a huge unbeaten streak (16/ 17 games?) and with a manager who has worked fantastically well with a paltry budget for players, they are the achievers in the Championship this season.

SKY BET EFL YOUNG PLAYER OF THE SEASON ANNOUNCED ON SUNDAY NIGHT. MANY CONGRATS RYAN from all Fulham fans we’re totally proud of you and a credit to yourself and Fulham Football Club and fully deserve this award. Much to be admired from FFC this season by players, coach, management and believing the BEST IS YET TO COME!...COYW...ONE WAY OR ANOTHER BACK2PREM!

Congratulations to young boy Sessengnon! He stil isn’t old enough to buy the team a round to celebrate his award! He still isn’t to get married! Most kids that age probably haven’t even done a days work in their life - Sess played 80 or 90 professional games already!! Awesome!! HOWEVER, if we are all honest, I wonder if he will win the fulham player of the season?? For me Ream still edge it. If we get promoted both Mac and Betts are also stong candidates!! It will look silly to the outside world if wins every awards out there but the fans put him second or even third.

Brilliant, very well deserved, great contribution. I’m sure this is just the first of many, in what I hope/sure will be a long and successful career. Well done and good luck to you. Agree with John, my FFC Player of the Year has to be Tim Ream. Week in week out, even when we were struggling, in the first half of the season, he put in solid - outstanding performances, which I am certain limited the damage on many occasions. Since Christmas he’s been peerless, until a couple of dodgy moments in the last two games, but I’ll forgive him them. Just to think last season Kalas would have been first on my team sheet, not anymore. Ream has worked hard and has improved his game immeasurably. Second place bit more difficult, but I’d opt for Bettinelli followed by Mitrovic. Betts because he has brought real stability to the defence and has been a big factor in Reams new found confidence. Many other standout performances but for week in week out contributions these are my choices. I wonder where we would be in Betts and Mitrovic had played a full season, guess we’ll never know.

I know Millwall have not lost in 16 - probably second longest to Fulham in the entire league. However, if you look at the teams they played over these 16 games, they haven't beaten anyone in the top 6! Their best results were probably a home draw with Cardiff and their home win over Brentford. Otherwise, they just bullied all the bottom teams. So they are not really tested by the likes of Boro, Wolves, Villa, Derby, etc!! So I don't think we should fear them. We can't influence Cardiff results but we must try to win all our 3 games!! Let's not be frightened by Millwall's unbeaten run!!
Replies
John' i watched an interview on Fulham tv featuring Ryan Fredericks. Believe me, our boys are gutted about that Brentford draw, and according to Ryan, they are fully focused on putting things right against Millwall. Fredericks played for Millwall at one time. There is no room for errors, draws or losses within the next 3 games, we must win them. The Cardiff results, we cannot do anything about. I think that some nerves crept into our play against Brentford, and we were far too focused on the Cardiff result earlier. Fulham need to get back in the zone and concentrate on playing our football with more tempo and pace. We have plenty of pace in this Fulham attack, and i think it is about time we used more of the squad to frighten the opposition. There must be players like AK47 chomping at the bit who can come on and do a job. It is up to Janko to shuffle people around. Most likely we will be in the playoffs anyway, and we just can't afford to play that slow like against Brentford. We will get murdered if we play too slow and deliberate.

I watched the whole match on Sky. We were lucky to get a draw, our first half-performance was crap, and Brentford could have gone in at half-time 2-0 up. If we get promoted and play like that we'll get murdered, and be favourites for an immediate drop back. The best we can do now to get automatic promotion is to win our last three matches and hope Cardiff blow-up.

ST it always makes me smile when I read something like "we will get relegated if we play like that".

Do you honestly believe that every single game played by every single team will be the same? All teams will have good bad and indifferent days. Look at Man Utd yesterday; do you think they will play like that every game? Of course not but when you look at it over a season I personally believe that this Fulham team would have been good enough to hold it's own in the Premier league this season and that includes our start and our poorer games like against Brentford, QPR, Sunderland and Burton.

Look at Palace. They gave every team in the Prem a seven game head start and they are still not relegated and personally, I don't think they will be.

It looks like all three teams that were promoted last season will stay up and I'd say we were at least as good as all of them last season and probably better than at least Huddersfield this season.

Don't judge a book by the first few or last few pages but by the entire plot, writing style and ability to keep you engaged :0).

Replies
Will fans please stop ranting on about our players being tired. They only work seriously for about 90 minutes a week, that's if they play a full match, and the treatment that they get between games is top class, so that is not an excuse. Every other team must have tired players as well, so it must still be a level playing field. With the biggest prize of all being promotion from the Championship, surely that should spur them on anyway. COYW

They were along the lines that all Fulham supporters were F's and C's, then there were a few that told us we run away from them because we were W's. Then there was Bluebird from Barry Island who told us a number of times we would never be anything else than pretend London W's(yes, pretend). No opinion's, just abuse. The one I thought might have been a Fulham supporter on the way back from the pub just repeated the words there, dark and Bishop.

Due to living in Sussex, I am in the fortunate position of having season tickets at both Fulham and Brighton, so I am able to watch both the Premier League and the Championship. If the fixtures clash, It's Craven Cottage for me every time. Luckily I have made friends with quite a few fans who sit near me and we chat of course and I have found that quite a few of them enjoyed being at, or near the top of the Championship, but they almost dread every game that they play in the Premier League as the prospect of losing is far greater and all that they can look forward too, is a fight against relegation every season. Although I like to see Brighton win, as it means that if we fail to make it, I will still see the top class teams, I know from experience that Brighton fans are not really enjoying being in the Premier after all. Food for thought, I might say.

I must admit I do enjoy seeing us win more games than we did in the Premier League but it’s also about seeing our team pit themselves against the best and also seeing the worlds best players at the Cottage. On balance I preferred our 13 years in the Prem.

If we don't go up half our team will go, including the manager, and we'll be fighting relegation in the championship anyway. May as well go up. Having said that if we don't get automatic promotion, highly unlikely now, shiiiiit ref yesterday, I can see us choking again a la Reading last year. Big difference having Mitro up front though, he could be the difference. Disappointed with our blatant time wasting yesterday, and odd substitutions. That lost us those 2 crucial points.

Agree the referring was awful yesterday but we benefited from the poor decisions more than brentford. The player was on-side when he scored early on but was given offside. It was a blatent handball from their freekick but no penalty was given. Sadly they looked better than us yesterday but at least we are guaranteed a play off place

We are doing well and it is one of the best years ever, but we still need to kill teams off! Brentford earned that point yesterday, and they maybe should have won that one. Switch off for 1 minute and you can see the result of that. It looks like we will most likely be in the play-offs, and i don't fancy playing the likes of Brentford again, do you? We gave them too much room to spray the ball about in midfield. When Fulham possess the ball, Brentford close us down quickly. What must happen now to have any chance of gaining 2nd, is that we need to win every game from now on, and hope Cardiff slip up. Otherwise, it is the playoffs, and teams will come with a game-plan just like Brentford. Did anyone notice Brentford's sports coach in one part of the stand? He had his ipad out looking at data and what-not. These guys will find a way of playing us. I thought we were far too slow in the build-ups, and we should have injected more tempo and pace. If we play like that in the play-offs, we will lose. We need to start scoring more goals and we must not rely too heavily on Mitrovic. Cairney can still improve 20 per cent more. Fulhams biggest bug-bear is they need to kill teams off, and that means 'GOALS-GOALS-GOALS!!!!!!!!!

Owen; as I wrote below we have always had to win all of our games and hope that Cardiff slip up. Cardiff did slip up against Villa but we could only draw and take advantage.

As previously indicated, second place has never been a given and has always been a long shot so I am finding it difficult to understand why people are posting as though it has ever been in our hands - it hasn't.

As I've also written previously, we should start resting the odd player - Norwood for Cairney/Jonansen, Kamara for Piazon/Ayite, Christie for Fredericks and Kebano for Sessegnon.

Just my opinion but what do I know?!?

MST' you are spot on about more rotation of players. We also need to score more goals and kill teams off. Nerves creep into the equation, especially this far into the season. Our tempo is far too slow also, and even small Brentford are closing us down quickly.

MST that's absolutely correct, Jokanovic has a good squad and it is about building to a crescendo at the end of the season and not peaking too soon. For example, we had the goal yesterday and we weren't looking for a second so take Mitrovic off and put AK on, his pace would have stretched the game and allowed the defenders some time to catch their breath and re-group. It seems he wont sub Mitrovic.

Can’t see that ffc scored a goal against run of play that was not on someone’s computer and if instead of messing around our goal area in the 92 nd minute we kicked the ball into the stand they would not have equalised also if this system is so good how comes Brentford are not in a better league position !!!!

Well done Fulham FC, great to see your unbeaten run in tack.......I’m sure it will get you far as it’s all you fans bang on about. Keep up the good work

Can’t recall a ffc fan referring to there unbeaten run there more concerned with overtaking Cardiff and if we fail to do so this year we will do so in the not to distant future !!

Assuming Cardiff were to pick up the 3 points at Derby should slavisa continue putting out the same recent starting XI at the risk of running dowm some of the players by the time we start the play offs, or give some of the bench players 90 minute run outs.

Why is everyone talking as Cardiff is playing Derby next? According to the bbc fixture list, Cardiff is playing Forest next Sat then Derby the following Tuesday. Anything can happen by then. If we drop points and Cardiff pick up maximum points from the two games, we’d miss the 2nd place - then of course, we should rest key players against Sunderland and Bham. Equally, if Cardiff drop 3 or more points (quite possible) and we win at Millwall, the 2nd place will be wide open. The point is with so few games left, if we still have a chance we will play to our maximum strength! Remember, Derby will not let Cardiff off lightly after the abuse they got and also they are still fighting for a playoff place!!

John' even i don't fancy Derby to beat Cardiff. Burton stuffed them 3-1 mate. I would be more worried about the likes of Brentford making the play-offs. Derby are too one dimensional and rely too much on Vidyra and overhyped Laurence.

Sort of resigned to a play off, if so does third play sixth, and fourth play fifth?

I don't know but Huddersfield finishes 5th last season and went up. So that obviously the place to finish.

As previously posted we have forgotten how to score with only one goal in each of our last three games and only one goal in sixteen, one third of our fixtures, games this season. With Mitrovic hitting a lean spell, as most strikers have, we are struggling to close out games and yesterday was a classic example of our team beginning to fear defeat. Whereas other players appeared to be able to score at will, just three or four weeks ago, they have gone missing and unless three or four attackers step up to the plate I believe that any hope of an automatic promotion is just an unrealistic dream and even winning the play offs may be beyond us. Our defence has become sloppy with balls being given away in midfield which can and do lead to conceding goals. As mentioned by another poster some of our defender resorted to unnecessary fouls which we would condemned if they were committed by other teams. Our tactics were wrong yesterday and I believe we should have bolstered our defence once we had scored as it was fairly obvious we would not score again. We could have played with five across the middle and three at the back. I do not intend to be critical and am just expressing my opinion.

If 9 goals in 10 league games is a lean spell I really hope Mitrovic keeps on suffering with them.

He’s got 10 goals now what a lean spell

Bigboys right again. We should have had at least three in the first twenty minutes. We are still missing the back of the net. And that would have shut them up. And being the longest club in europe not to lose dont mean anything if we blow it. Scoring goals gets you places. Not statistics. We are not doing it at the moment. And other teams are picking up on it.

Geezer we could have scored 20 goals yesterday and it still would not have made an iota of difference. If Cardiff don't lose we will not make second. Even with 11 games left they would have had to drop 33.33% of the points available to them and that has not changed. 3rd place for Fulham has always been he more realistic aspiration in my opinion but apparently I am a pessimist rather than a realist...

you just dont get it , pressure is everything , and the minute we blew out 2 brentford the pressure is on us , if we won they would be shaky , now there havin a proverbial party , we had 2 win , just the way football goes

MST all i was doing was agreeing with Bigboy. Most of us in h5 are saying the same. We dont score goals. We come out as race horses. then dont score and end up as cart horses. And its all backs to the wall.

26th April 2008 at 345pm Fulham were technically relegated, 2-0 down at Manchester City and you probably wouldn’t find a single Fulham supporter still believing in possible survival. Not only did we need to overturn a 2 goal deficit but we would have to go on to win our final two matches. This from a team that had struggled all season to pick up points. A former work colleague of mine happened to be spending the afternoon in Ladbrokes and had no affiliation with our club. He did however like a gamble and at half time on request received excellent odds from the bookie on Fulham to survive. He rather gamely slapped a fiver on and the rest is history. My point being that in football there is mathematical impossibility where only a fool could maintain hope and mathematical improbability where the hope however remote can reasonably be maintained. I believe that at half time in Manchester back in 2008 our club was walking a very thin line between the two. I will unapologetically maintain the hope of second place until the maths become a true impossibility, we should all think back to those surreal days of 2008 and remember that strange and unexpected things can happen in football. Every game involving Cardiff ourselves and possibly Villa will be as much about mental toughness as skill and stamina. The big advantage that Cardiff have is that they have the luxury of affording one maybe even two slip ups, sadly after the late strike on Saturday we cannot afford one. Whatever happens we should enjoy the ride after a faltering start the team have put in an almighty shift to reach this position.
