Now that relegation seems inevitable, who do you think that will stay with us in the Championship. Will Claudio want to manage in the lower Division, and will our Championship stars such as Sessingnon and Mitro want to give it another go ? Personally I wouldn't care too much if we do go down, as I would rather support a team that at least wins it fair share of it's matches then lose nearly all over a season. I also hope that we don't come back for two or three seasons, as playing in a league where we belong, will be far more enjoyable.

Why do you think we would win more games in The Championship? You, and many others seem to have the view that next season will be just like last season, sweeping all before us! Slav has gone and so has our free flowing football. We will inevitably lose our better players as we look to balance the books. TC thinks he is world class, Mitro looks unhappy without his Serbian boss and Sess in constantly played out of position which he will only put up with for a while. So back to The Championship means back to mediocrity at best so if you are looking forward to that you should be very happy.

Sess & Mitro will be gone, Don't think there will be many PL teams interested in TC, he has not trained on (racing term) & is no captain.

"The lawyer behind football's landmark Bosman ruling has written to the Football Association to demand an inquiry into Jean Michael Seri's transfer to Fulham from Nice. The Ivorian midfielder joined the Premier League club with French left-back Maxime Le Marchand for a combined fee of £25million this summer. According to French reports, the breakdown of that fee was approximately £15million for Le Marchand and £10million for Seri, despite the latter being better, younger and having longer on his contract."

No player over 28 yrs old....... Like we can pick & choose !!! We need players With A pair, not like the pretty boys we have. £100 mill + wasted on stats, GROW up TK I dont care I if they are 34 yr old with gutts & B******s. We need commitment from our players, as yet failed to see it with most of our players. If 28 is carte blanche give the younger players a chance, you might be surprised.

Don't know if you remember but Mitro. couldn't get in Newcastle's team. The days of the big lumbering centre forward are long gone. The better teams have pace all over the pitch and are geared up for counter-attacking. Slow build ups are easy to defend against as the defence has time to recover. As an ordinary fee-paying supporter, I wonder why that is obvious to me and not the people running the club. You cant blame the current manager for that, he has to put up with what he was left with. I think it might be too late to alter our fate, and I expected a tough time in the Prem., but not this. Yes , sad times for Fulham, but being 72 years old, I've seen it all before.

Mitro isn’t the problem here. He’s our best defender on set pieces for starters. His touch is beautiful, Kamara needed to finish that pass. He needs the ball more, not less. The second goal was emblematic of what’s gone wrong. Bryan chased an attacking player across the pitch, then didn’t sprint back to his position...and no one covered for him. Schurrle was just standing in no mans land, no tracking back. Our wingers don’t do their defensive duties. And our backs allow too many crosses. Our style under Joka minimized our frailties by keeping the ball 70% of the time. But also, look at Macca and StefJo vs Seri and Anguissa. They’re tough, intelligent, hard-working...it’s such a shame our midfield trio that bossed the Championship still has yet to start one match together. Communication and commitment we had in spades last year - it’s what we desperately need now. That’s why Cardiff and Wolves are thriving— they aren’t that much more talented, it was proved last year.

Addict not to far behind you & you can't blame CR or SJ for effort. FFC transfer policy must change you can't keep buying players at the last minute & hope for the best. Most of the players we don't even know. Plucked from D1/D2 France / Spain & they are not good enough..... Bring back S Earl, L Barrett with a little bit of F Callaghan in defence not the best but at least they tried.

Here we have two contrasting situations; Seri, despite his lack of demonstrable ability, is picked as a starter for every game. O'Riley, despite his surfeit of demonstrable ability, is never even named to the matchday squad. Now, why is that? What is in Seri's contract that makes him a mandatory pick if he's available and uninjured? There has to be a "must start if available" clause in his contract else two savvy managers would have benched him long ago. Could it be that a significant "starting bonus" is paid to Nice every time Seri starts, thus further offsetting the transfer payments due to his previous club(s)? Thirty-eight games at 100k per start is the best part of four million sterling. Can anyone think of any other reason he's selected week in and week out? O'Riley, on the other hand, can't get a game despite the multiple accolades from coaches and pundits in the press. The most obvious answer to this omission is the malign influence of Unique Sports Management (USM) to whom O'Riley is a nuisance because he's not under their wing. There's no reason to believe that the agent/player debacle under Jokanovic has changed in any way, which has deeper implications for the club. In a nutshell, and as O'Riley's absence indicates, Rainieri does not have complete control over team selection, no more than Jokanovic did. Think about that. Tony Khan and McKingtosh have a lot to answer for and various investigations are under way in France and the UK into their shady dealings. The chickens are coming home to roost.

At the moment the only positive I can see, at least I hope it’s a positive is next season I’ll hopefully be able to see a few more wins in the Championship. We are in free fall at the moment with half the team already playing as if the dreaded drop as already happened. If only they would show what Southampton showed against Arsenal early this afternoon.

Fulhams back 4 have taken a load of flak recently, and yes the evidence is there to see why. Have we always been terrible or a bit flakey at the back? The answer is yes! We got away with murder back in the Championships, and even with the change of personnel, we still are ropey in defence. Fulham need to approach January's transfer window with an air of caution. Even i blurted out in my fury when conceding goals against WHU, 'We need 'Cahill'Get Targett'' go for Clyne' etc, etc. I put to you guys that we have a serious problem in our striker end, and Mitrovic just isn't doing it these days. How many fans are saying that the chances Kamara is having, coming his way that Mitro would have put away? Mitrovic needs to earn and graft for those chances he apparently would have put away. There are too many ifs and buts around Mitrovic at the moment. We know he isn't the greatest pace-man, but still if only he could put in more of a shift. Kamara is still adjusting to these extra and marvellous responsibilities that are coming his way. He still has a lot to learn, and because of our precarious position we find ourselves in right now, it doesn't look good for him missing the target like he has. Scurrle has been a big disappointment for me, and against WHU he was diabolical. In fact, looking at the stats on goal, Schuurle wasted a good few opportunities himself. Schuurle goes for goal all the time, but his shooting is either way off target or just too weak on shooting. I agree that a goal earlier on would have changed the dynamics, and that would have given us more confidence. I am not sure if Mitrovic is still interested in staying at Fulham now? He needs to show a lot more if he is. Recruitment in January will make or break our season. Will Christie improve at right back? (Clyne in) Obrien, is he good enough? Mawson in, out? Cahill in? Obrien and Christie need to improve quickly on assist duties for sure. Fredericks and Malone, put more accurate balls in which lead to goals, and that was back in the Championships. In midfield, we need more penetration, and more intelligence is needed. Another striker is needed and it will be expensive. Assuming that Mitro is staying? Someone with pace and intelligence is needed. Kamara will improve, but he still needs time. I don't blame Ranieri for trying him out now because nothing else is working. We need to score goals mostly and ease the pressure off the defence. Its a toss-up guy's, Defenders, Midfielders, or Strikers? Which position is most urgent? All positions? We need a miracle!!!
Replies
See your point Owen, Most of us fans would agree that we need to recruit, and fast. Players with Intelligence that are fit and have the balls to accept the challenge. I would add that the recruitment team require intelligence as well. Schurrle is exactly the player we don’t need looking at his performances. We have some good youngsters at the club who are watching these lazy, spoilt players. What sort of example is this? Get someone in January who wears it on the sleeve, gets his foot in and gees up the team. Records can be broken, it depends on who recruits

When Roy took over on 1st jan 2008, we stood 19th after 20 games with 19 points.Today we stand 20th with 9 points and 17 games. To be ridiculously optimistic, we could reach 20 games with 16 points although if I were to put my money id go for 10 points. Roy recruited half a dozen players in the winter window, all of which except the iconic Hangeland were pointless.The core of the team was already there at the start of the season, they just neaded somebody to make them work as a unit. Even then, Roys first 8 matches were not great..won 1 drew 1 lost 6..So considering CR has a head start on Roy, I still think there is some margin of hope as long as the board and management act with common sense. I cant believe onother 100m investment (throw away) would do anything.We nead some proven professionals ,maybe low profile who may be "have beens" but who could still show more class and more determination than unexplicable cons who dare to wear our shirt.Get rid of them .Even give them away if necessary. Our club and players have historically had a characteristic profile which makes it identifiable as "Fulham".Slavisa elevated this feeling to a sentiment of "honour",but today we dont look or feel the same and some throwing overboard neads doing.

Seri LeMarchant, Anguissa , Bryan Schurrle , Fosu-Mensah Ramirez , what a bunch . Chambers slight improvement but it has taken about 6 or 7 matches to realise he is a mid fielder not a back four player . Kamara couldn't get in last year's Championship side but somehow has matched to get into this year's team that about sums up the present team.Looks like Mitro 's off to Everton if you can believe the press can't blame him ! Ranieri won't save this lot yesterdays performance was a shocker papers got it right when they said WH cruised past Fulham WH aren't exactly Barcelona they are a modest team . Apparently we won the toss but decided to kick the wrong way it was an early Christmas present for WH they couldn't believe their luck . As I said at the start What a bunch

That’s what happens when a Club is run by an inexperienced Board and Manager. Watford knew exactly what they were doing when they were promoted; it may not have been ‘nice’ but it was damn good business

I think a large part of our fragility stems from Seri who doesn’t appear to have adjusted to PL and gets caught in possession in exposed areas. Odoi was at fault for both goals. Bizarrely I thought we played well in patches and Mawson, Bryan and Chambers are beginning to settle in. We need another CH, a LB and defensive midfielder. Session was injured.

Yes Supporter, you summed up our plight perfectly. AK seeing this much time in the premier league is truly shocking. It doesn’t appear CR has any more clue on what to do with this bunch than SJ did, because there’s nothing you can do with this bunch.The players have all given up and are looking for greener pastures. I know the the weather was atrocious but the supporters know we’re done now without a doubt, what we’ve all known for a couple weeks. There’s an interesting article here on Lerner’s tenure at Villa. A Yank billionaire getting chewed up and spit out by English football. Same is happening to us now. The Khans are ruining this club top to bottom, inside and out. Again I say, no decent players will come. No academy players will stay as long as they are here. Once you’ve shown to commit fraud against your most valuable asset, the player, you are done in the industry for good. They have got to go.

So in the second half I went for a quick wiz and thought I saw some pies, that table where they only take cards had some left, I asked if they would take cash but they said, as the sign said, only take cards. So that means they would rather throw them away than take cash. That fish n chip shop in Greyhound Road got my money.

Had the same problem. Went to buy 2 coffees with cash, left cards at home. No go. What’s with cards only?on small purchase I prefer to pay cash. I guess ffc don’t want handle cash? Shame

For the first time in a few years, I am really running out of positiveness to say about the team!! Until our defence is sorted out - we will always lose more goals than we can score. Our defence technically is still a championship defence. We lack pace, strength, quality, leadership and even intelligence. Why we play odoi on the right? Why we play odoi at all?! Yes, while we can blame the defence, I don’t think the rest of the field is much better either. I like Kamara but he’s not a starter. He’s a perfect impact player. Schrulle is not made for a poor team. He’s a scorer. If we want to use himHe should play with Mitro up the field instead of Kamara. Anyway - there are so many things wrong with the current team -I am really struggling to find any positives!!

It was a case of if only we can get a good start to the season, then if only we can beat the likes of Watford and Bournemouth, then if only we could do better without SJ, then if only Claudio can make a great start, then, if only we can get win our next three games against West ham, Newcastle, Wolves and Huddersfield, then if only we can make some good signings in the January sales, then if only we could win a game without letting in at least one goal. My only if only is that if I didn't support Fulham I could sleep at night. Oh if Only ! !

I posted earlier in the week that we would do well to get even one point out of our next few games, and I'm afraid that my prophesy looks like becoming true. Despite the weather, we turn up at the Cottage in all good faith, and then when the team was announced our hearts sink. No Sess, to start with, and then we win the toss, and decide to attack the Hammersmith end first. I know that it shouldn't make any difference which end we attack in the first half, but we all know(except our Captain)that we always do better when we attack the Hammersmith end in the second half with our fans, cheering us on. Kamara missing a sitter early on was a complete match changer. There are several players not up to even Championship standard, and he is one of them. I digress, let me get back to our next few games. Newcastle away, then Wolves at home. No points there then. Huddersfield at home is where I see our point coming from. We will be bottom at Christmas and relegated by February, and deservedly so. I am so very sorry that it has ended up like this, after I was really looking forward to a season back in the big time, where I honestly thought that we would do well. Now it looks like we will return to the Championship, being labelled among the worst sides ever to be promoted, if not at the moment, the worst.
Replies
I can't disagree with that, and we could now be relegated with the worst goals conceded record, being the worst ever. If, as what will probably happen, we are going down, then what chance would we have of coming straight back up again with this squad. Yes, that's right, absolutely no chance, in fact we could possibly do a Sunderland and go straight out of the other end of the Championship.
posted by NORMAN (Guest) - Sunday 16th December 2018, 9:13 AM
 
I agree about winning the toss and kicking in towards the Hammersmith end in the first half was bizarre. There was no atmosphere or loud cheering in the second half. Laurie Sanchez tried that and even changed the home dug out to the away one and look where that got us. A great shame that we did this as kicking towards the Hammersmith end in the second half may well have changed the game. could you imagine any other club doing that!!

Am I the only one who is thinking claudio has lost the plot regarding modern football tactics?, only been here a short time but seems to have no idea what to do with what he has got. Constantly changing the team ,no Sess, why? Mitro starting to get itchy feet, a back four who seem to be on another planet ,cant score , Kamara , !!!! you sure ?.Simple solutions are get rid of at least 5 and get another five in , but as we know we don't do simple, a striker is needed for sure, but decent c/half top priority,and some enthusiasm would be most welcome, however I have visions of complete disaster on the horizon .

The most horrid club in the league (us) have the most arrogant & overrated Captain in the league as well. This prat does nothing but pass backwards and is a gutless boy band looking mug. He embarrassed our club today by ignoring that nice little girl that wasted her afternoon as our mascot and by asking him A question in the tunnel coming into the pitch and he ignored her. Watch it for yourselves, he should be ashamed. What a shambles.

Wow. He was one of the only players in that team today that looked like a premiership player. What TC does is makes it look easy. That’s a skill. He very rarely gives the ball away and not only his pass completion but the weight of the pass is top draw! He is also one of the only players in the team that can pass. Admittedly the last couple of games haven’t been the best for him but that was down to the style of Football we played on those occasions (too rushed and long ball). Today was the best football we’ve played (first half) since Burnley and that because of TC’s involvement. By mentioning the girl in the tunnel I can presume you were watching on TV and not there to get the whole picture. Also I didn’t see it myself because I was at the game but a lot of players that are about to walk down the tunnel are trying to focus on the game and ‘getting into the zone’ so I’m sure he wasn’t ignoring her deliberately. Anyway, I hoped you enjoyed the TV annalasis and the strictly come dancing final after!

If you weren’t at the match - don’t judge based on the 3mins motd highlight. tC was our best player today even though he’s playing out of position. Never lost the ball once. Dragged 2/3 players with him. The issue is other players are not making runs or giving him options to play the ball! Why are we so static!

Sorry to disappoint but was indeed at the match you mugs. Why TC escapes all blame by muppets like you is beyond me. Lazy, doesn't defend and does nothing but pass backwards or sideways. CR has been yanking him in and out of the lineup this month for such reasons and you're all too daft to see it.

There is only one person to blame with our current predicament. Tony Khan. He’s playing football manager with his dads money whilst we all pay to watch it! Get on his case! Sing it, let him know whilst this is a hobby for him, it’s a way of life for us!

Boring, boring boring. Go and watch a match and see what is being supplied by 11 players on the pitch and by the managers in charge. No one knows how players are going to perform when you buy them and players like seri came with a big reputation. Not one of the wonders of last season are playing decent football nor are the new men but thats totally down to them. give it a rest.

The signings lacked the insight into what was required in the premiership. 2 players with premiership experience, one experiencing relegation the other couldn’t get into a terrible Arsenal defence. Do you think Seri and Angussia looked like they could dominate a premiership midfield? Someone did, TK! And with reference to mentioning the stars of last season they were stars in the championship this doesn’t qualify for a premiership start! The transfer window was a mess and all last minute as it was last season but the club failed to learn from their mistakes. We had the worst 2 pre seasons in memory due to the lack of activity until the last day with no time for the team to gel (not this side can!). The team is completely Make shift due to the fact that the players signed to play in their positions are so poor we’ve had to compromise. We have Centre backs playing left back, right backs playing centre backs and centre back playing as a defensive midfielder. Despite all this Mitro is still I best defender from opposition set pieces. It took Khan ages to work out signings needed for the correct positions when everyone was screaming out for a quality forward and a left back. Talking of which again TK waited and waited for Target to sign and panicked bought Bryan when realising it wasn’t going to happen. Way of his depth line so many in the league. He positional sense was a joke and in the second half he was actually in between Mawson and Odoi and not out on the wing cutting out crosses. Odoi did the same allowing the 2 crosses to come over for the goals. The the positions sense and lack of communication by the other defenders for the goals was an embarrassment! The defence are clueless. Anyway turned into a rant but TK is taking us back down due to his incompetence.
posted by Jake (Guest) - Sunday 16th December 2018, 12:49 PM
 
Agree with a lot of what you say and nearly all of the signings have failed miserably. The only one I have been impressed with is Rico. Not one of last years players have proved they are good enough for the premier and I posted that pre season when I saw how bad ream and cairney were. As you say the players have been played out of position, we have the wrong captain, the tactics have been wrong and to me the substitution have been strange. We have known from day one Mitro cannot play on his own up front. At the end of the day this is down to the manager and the players. Have a look at West Ham's first goal yesterday. We give the ball away cheaply and four players make no effort to get back to cover. Odoi dives in and they are home and dry. The heads then go down and the rest is history. Yes management haven't helped but if a manager Can't produce it and the players won't give 100% then we have serious problems. To just blame Khan is pathetic and short sightedness.

We can say some of the refs have not given us much , but so far we deserve to be at the bottom . We are just not improving , making the same errors every game . Today we created a lot going forward , but were guilty of overplaying when a snap shot or a quick cross could have worked . Defensively we looked vulnerable every time Weat Ham attacked . Second half we offered nothing , their two goal lead never looked in doubt . The only fortunate thing is that there are four other teams who seem to be only a little better than us , and I think these 5 will be cut adrift by the year end . There is still hope , but it’s getting depressing . The players just do not seem up for the fight . Drop Seri to the bench , just not good enough .Bring in some of the youth team , at least they will fight and have ambitions. Too many of last years team cannot make the step up , this is a jump too far . seri and Zambo waste of time , Schurrle flits in and out of the game , only Chambers looks a good signing , in the first half a colossus in midfield .

I believe we won the toss today and for some weird reason chose to kick towards the Hammersmith end in the first half. It reminded me of Laurie Sanchez who did the same thing. As a result the second half lacked the usual atmosphere and the game petered out. Whoever decided to do that mad3 @ great mistake

We are led to believe that he was an expert in sorting out defence problems. THe back four he started with today were a shambles.His managers Reaction was pathetic.His excuses beggars belief.Smoke and mirrors and hot air.At least under Slavisa we scored the odd goal .Even Mitro looks pissed off.The management may have made another mistake in hiring him but we now look like a Championship team apart from Rico who was forced to rush out into midfield to avoid further damage. Its pointless to try and apportion blame to any one player.I used to say the buck stops with Slavisa But this guy has yet to convince he is up to the job whoever we get in Jan.

Everyone quite rightly bemoans Fulham's woeful defense. But lack of offensive production is also quite worrisome. Fulham have been shut out in the majority of matches, 9 out of 17, and have scored more than one goal in only 4 matches. Mitro is quality, Schurrle is a ball hog whose very occasional wonder strikes in no way compensate for his disinclination to track back and put in an all around shift. Seri tantalizes with the occasional incisive pass, but adds little toughness on defense and seems clueless as to overall situational positioning. At least Stef Jo will fight for the shirt, and Chambers tries to do the work of 2 or 3 players. Talk of Fulham "improvement" in the face of lack of production on both sides of the ball is juvenile wishful thinking. Grim times ahead unless all aspects of the game are addressed.
Replies
This is the problem George' we know our back 4 have lapses in concentration and we always concede goals. Mitrovic at the moment isn't quality, and Schurrle just doesn't do it. Johansen always gets booked. Not sure why he was brought on? 2,0 down and we needed a more offensive formation. If we were 2.0 up ~~( in a dream~~~) then Johansen could play a part. Our ball supply all over is substandard, and Mitrovic isn't doing it for Fulham at the moment, simple as! It needed somebody to tell it like this, no use in pretending...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Saturday 15th December 2018, 10:30 PM
 
Johansen was put on because Seri kept giving the ball away. We did not concede whilst he was on. Seri seems like he gets picked in every game, he has been awful since his monetary claims against the club have come to light. You would have thought that Ranieri would have been delighted to have in his squad and possibly saw him as a Kante type. If the player is performing that bad and is not allowed to be dropped the manager has no chance of putting together a decent team. Also this situation must affect the rest of the team. Think Mitro need a support player up front with him. He is leading the line and is getting knocked about by two or three defenders all the time because he has no support. I heard we might be going for Okosaki from Leicester, he would give Mitro an option and will worry any opposition defenders.
posted by Robbo (Guest) - Sunday 16th December 2018, 12:15 AM
 
Mitro did have a strike partner - Kamara. Problem was the chances fell to Kamara and not Mitro. AK is full of energy but little else, same as Christie. I could go on but what's the point, the defensive players we need are just not at the club (yet). I agree drop Seri and get Mitro a real strike partner. I thought TC worked his socks off yesterday, play broke down after he had passed the ball. Most teams will find it hard to score against a packed defence defending a 2 goal lead.
posted by willie2B (Guest) - Sunday 16th December 2018, 5:17 AM
 
Mitrovich needs 10 to 15 chances to score a goal,the back 4 are a total joke, they dont look around them to see unmarked players they all chase after the person with the ball. Seri causes major problems with his constant mistakes. Im no Coach but I can do a better job than these clowns

Not quite sure what we wanted to do today? Did we try to play the way Slavisa would have liked but not really know how to? What happened to strengthening our defensive play? Where were Seri and Chambers told to play - why were they more near to the opposition box than ours? Why Odoi played on the right having made a meal of it last week? I am really lost! I really wished we gave Slavisa until Christmas as I said we should! Very sad day as a fulham fan!

There is no cohesion, no psychi, and no click in defence in our team. We started out well and had more percentage of the play, but inevitably, and we could see it coming, players out of position for Antonio's goal. How many times must this happen before we learn? A left back, Right back and a centre-back is needed pronto. In midfield, there is not enough creativity supplying the final ball to Mitrovic. Kamara should have buried at least 2 chances, he is okay but not enough experience yet. A Jermain Defoe would be a good stop gap upfront, and we know he can't play every game, but still creative. Schurrle hasn't got it in him, too weak. We can criticise our back four every week for messing up, but there is nothing going on up-front either. We have O brien on the left, no supply, nothing there, not good enough. Right-hand side, huffing and puffing, we are looking good with Christie, but not enough! Cairney is looking interested, but not enough. Seri should not play again in my opinion, he owed us one, and he flatters to deceive. I won't say his name because it is a waste of time on here, but Le Posier, is a better footballer than any of ours in his sleep, and throwing tantrums. Back to the Championships, we go if we carry on like this. Fulham come out with good intentions, and i don't know what it is with us at the moment, we just blow it. Too nieve at this level. Antonio is made to look good because we cannot do the basics!!!

Owen, I have actually noticed that there are problems at the club and has been for the fifty odd years I’ve been going to the cottage. One thing I can say is that after games we would go to a pub near the ground, have a couple of pints and talk about the game. At no stage, win, lose or draw would we as Fulham fans get rude to each other. Fulham fans respect other fans opinions but they do speak up if they think someone is wrong. I respect your promotion of Balotelli but I don’t believe in it. If Fulham do sign him I will cheer him on. I quite like Emilliano Sala from Nantes, I’ve watched him a lot when Im in France, apparently we have shown interest in him. I will not mention his name in every post I make and hope you will do the same.
posted by David (Guest) - Saturday 15th December 2018, 11:59 PM
 
My sincere apologies David. I was so upset today at our lack of penetration. I used Balotelli again to demonstrate the lack of intelligence within our squad at the moment. Balotelli was rightly pointed out as being more of a poser much more than a footballer. Our defence isn't the best and we have to see our limitations there. It would help our cause if we can only put away some of those chances, just to give everybody some confidence. What also frustrates me is that i have shouted up for Kamara who tries hard, but he hasn't got the experience yet. West Hams Antonio makes the best of his average ability by slotting his few chances home. We lack confidence in every department of our team at the moment, and if we don't snap out of it, we are doomed. Balotelli is a flawed genius and wasted most of his career so far. What he lacks in discipline, he makes up for in composure and intelligence. The best centre-forwards go to the big teams. Emilliano Sala is a good shout and why not mention him a lot more? There is a lot of development soon to be started with a new stand costing 80 million. If we can afford that much, we surely need a team to live up to the standards we are trying to reach. I have had my rant 50 times over tonight, and every other Fulham fan will have there's tomorrow. I will get a hammering tomorrow for sure. I did mentionClyne, Cahill, Targett, and Defoe and Moses. So i should get some brownie points for those suggestions? Sorry again David, and i didn't swear. Just said my piece after another rotten display...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Sunday 16th December 2018, 12:34 AM
 
No need for apologies Owen, if your upset about the way we played have a rant but don’t take offence when someone thinks you are wrong. Why don’t you email the club and express your concerns? We must remember that whatever we think or post on here it will never be taken up by the club.Balotelli is not a flawed genius, he is not intelligent. Any footballer who would waste a career is not at intelligent but an idiot. don’t understand what you mean by “ what frustrates me is that I have shouted up for Kamara who tries hard, but hasn’t got the experience yet”. Did you think that by shouting up for him would give him experience? I have time for Kamara because he tries hard, this is something Balotelli doesn’t do, I would rather we worked on AK than bring in Balotelli. Clyne is wanted by Warnock who he had at Palace, Cahill is being looked at by Arsenal, the new manager at Southampton will recognise how good Targett is, not to sure if we could get Moses or Defoe but decent shouts.

I literally fell asleep during the second half for 15 minutes. I'm glad I did. Hardly any fight from 55 minutes onwards. If we don't win our next 2 games. I've given up. Seri while he was good before us with us he is not. I like kamara but he should of buried the chances he had. Carney not pl level. The squad just need to press and maybe even sit back sometime because we get hit on the break time and time again. And our defence is not up to it.

Not Ranieri's fault. Ream not good enough for EPL, Adoi marginal. We need a proper right back and another central defender. Seri is not EPL material and we need another striker. This has been said before but nothing can be done until January. If good players are brought in immediately, Ranieri may yet pull it off. As for West Ham, when have we ever beaten them?

London calling to the Banks of the Tyne
The Scousers and Geordies, have a bare bellied smile
London calling, you’d better believe

West Ham and Wolves will drive in the nails
The coffin is sinking, the tide’s on the rise
The waters will take us ‘cause we, Live by the river.

London Calling to the teams North and East
The Whites have had it, it’s the end of the feast
The JH, the RS the Hammersmith End?
You must surely accept know it’s close to the end
London calling away fans to come
Enjoy your time at our legendary home
Make the most of your time here by the Thames
Cos next year we’ll be back playing Wigan again

CHORUS
But West Ham at home, then Newcastle away
6 points from them two just might save day
Get the white wave rolling, let the players deliver
Perhaps the waters can lift us, cause we, Live by the river.

Now Harry that’s uncanny, I was just about to say, three points today, would get us away, from the bottom three until another day. ..another three at St James Park, I’ll be singing like a lark, come on Fulham, let’s do em, next year again in this league, even if the players drop from fatigue!

An Alf Garnet quote; that says, 'Supporting West Ham is like life itself; there's the odd moment of joy down the years, but most of it is bloody misery! Let's hope Alf's quote is not the odd glorious moment of joy for them. Just for once, at this moment in time, please let it be a win for Fulham, and i don't care about clean sheets and what-not. 4-3, 5-4, it doesn't matter. We just need this win. Win ugly, win Italian style with a boring 1-0. It doesn't matter how. Tom Cairney, be a Captain, shout loud! Alfie Mawson, stay strong and steer the rudder! Big Man Mitrovic, please' bring out the guns and score goals! AK-47 Kamara!!!, bring on the pace ace, and more penalties, please!!! COME ON YE FULHAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi guys, I've been studying in London for three weeks (I am living here for another three weeks then I go back to Rochester, NY) and NEED to get a game. I was looking to go to either Chelsea, Arsenal, or Fulham, and it seems Fulham has tickets easiest to get, so I picked up some for the West Ham game. I know some Bubble Blowers back in Seattle and although only one of them has actually gone to see West Ham play they say the fans are quality and can be pretty mental. I'm excited and not that I want to see violence or anything it would be pretty cool if the GSE fans are loud, but of course, being a Fulham fan for the day, I would want to be with Fulham's supporter group. My ticket is in the Riverside stand but I understand the supporters section is in the Hammersmith Stand and I'm wondering if I can just go there instead, or do they check tickets. Thanks

Welcome Detroit, the riverside is Fulham so you are in the right place. Enjoy the Fulham 2-0 West Ham win

The Riverside stand is where old Fulham fans go to die. That's why they are demolishing it next summer. Don't know where they are gonna relocate all the bodies. They'll probably have to haunt the Putney end. Still you will be sitting in a bit of history , and that's a good thing. But stick to the road lads and beware the moon.

Last game against Leicester, a guy a few rows away from me brought his good lady along - and she spent the whole game reading The Guardian. Only in the Riverside. Detroit, the way it works is this. The Johny Haynes stand is where the moaners and groaners sit. The Riverside is for the old stiffs like me, but who generally retain an upbeat view of the rubbish they're seeing on the pitch. Folks at the Hammy End think they're the 'real supporters' and look down on anyone paying for the more expensive seats in the Riverside and JH. Oh, Putney End, that's for away supporters and a neutral section, which is often full of Norwegian kids....who the commercial dept love because they spend huge amounts in the club shop on Stefan Johansen replica shirts.

Detroit there are three just fulham stands the back (top) of the Hammersmith end is where the atmosphere is. The Johnny Haynes is a historic stand built out of wood, seats and all. It’s cramp but is also very unique and a protected building and I think where you should sit but I don’t think you can access the river from there for a half time pint which again makes craven cottage special. The riverside stand is a standard quiet stand. You might ask at the ticket office if you can get moved. If it doesn’t sell out you can access the Hammersmith stand with your ticket just walk fast and confidently past the guys at the top of the steps like you are a season ticket holder. They are there just to help people find their seats. Then I guess try and find an empty seat, maybe wait till 10 mins after kick off. There won’t be any trouble other than the odd stupid kid who finds another stupid kid, if you aren’t looking for it you won’t find it. If I were you I’d walk from Putney Bridge station through bishops park along the river to get atmosphere (tourist tip, the church on the edge of bishops park is the one in the omen and then used in the remake.) If you come from Hammersmith station then you can still walk along the river but it’s not as interesting. Have a great time you’ve definitely picked the right stadium it’s everyone favorite ground and Christmas it’s like back in time.

The Football Association last Friday launched an independent inquiry into allegations made against Chief Executive Martin Glenn by our own much-unloved stats man .Craig Kline. Today, Glenn resigned, effective at the end of the current season, ostensibly because of the Wembley sale fiasco. Although Fulham figure prominently in both the FA say the two events are not connected. To paraphrase Mandy Rice-Davies, "well they would say that wouldn't they".

Hard to believe anything one reads or hears these days. Example, The F.A., A.Mac at FFC, most transfer gossip, AND Mrs May. I feel that the public in the U.K. watch from the side lines as the wealthy wriggle and turn to get what they want. Even if guilty of chicanery, it will be hard to shift the Khans (hopefully they are innocent). We are used and abused but mostly by the political class which will say and do anything to retain power. Example, Mrs May lost her majority at the last election and bought the D.U.P. to support her - with £1.5 billion of taxpayers' money ( couple of new hospitals perhaps or 10000 policemen). Brexiteers won the referendum, the Remainer MPs have never accepted that result and have failed, in fact undermined, to support the govt in negotiations with the EU. More of the same at the last election where I thought the Tory Manifesto stated that the govt would pursue Brexit. Why then do those Remainer MPs still not support the govt? Current proposal could tie us to the EU indefinitely, an ideal solution for the Remainers who clearly include Mrs May and Hammond. Their leadership and failure to be honest will end with a Corbyn led govt. Some say heaven forbid but could it be any worse than the 2 years of 'cat and mouse' from Mrs May? SORRY TO GO ON BUT TOTALLY FRUSTRATED AND CAN SUPPORT TORY NO LONGER. In need of relief so COME ON YOU WHITES.

London calling to the Banks of the Nile
The Son of the Pharaohs, has made London smile
London calling, you’d better believe
Fulham will win the Europa League

We’ve been to the Baltic, we’ve conquered the Steppes
The Romans have fallen we’ve won in Donetsk
The white wave is rolling, the tide’s on the rise
The waters will lift us ‘cause we, Live by the river.


London Calling to the crowds of Turin
The Old Lady’s had it, she’s been done in
Were you there, at the Hammersmith End?
On the 18th of March Two Thousand and Ten
London calling generations to come
Fulham have beaten Juventus 4 – 1
London calling abroad and beyond
The Blues have been banished, the Whites carry on


CHORUS
Wolfsburg is waiting, then Hamburg is next
The Germans will crumble in SW6
The white wave is rolling, the tide’s on the rise
The waters will lift us ‘cause we, Live by the river.

Chamber plays midfield, if he can find where that is. Serri is suing FFC around fixing the transfer fee so he didn’t get a cut. Explains his change in form. Prediction ....we won’t cope with their attack. Wish I was wrong but we don’t have anyone standing up and organising our defence. 3-3
posted by Bob (Guest) - Thursday 13th December 2018, 11:27 PM
 
Is Seri really suing FFC? If so he should be rested, his form is definitely not up to it. Hope Ranieri is looking to bring in Cahill, Phil Jones, Drinkwater - we could use all three! What is problem with bringing in O'Reilly or another 18 year old? Other clubs do, Sess hasn't let us down.

No Seri isn't suing Fulham he is suing Nice for not paying bonuses and add ons from his previous clubs due to his transfer fee being devalued from €40m to €12.8.
posted by MST (Moderator) - Friday 14th December 2018, 5:49 AM
 
It’s pretty clear Seri is bitter hence he’s form and effort! What’s very odd is if seri had a bonus clause tied to his transfer fee - wouldn’t this be discussed and agreed upfront by his agent before he signed on the dotted line with Fulham?? He should be suing his legal team not Nice or Fulham!
posted by John (Guest) - Friday 14th December 2018, 7:44 AM
 
Don't know if you've ever tried to sue a lawyer John; first of all you've got to find a lawyer to take your case and they're very much a closed shop. As for the Seri problem, French police are investigating a fraud in which, if proven, Fulham were complicit. I understand Seri has also launched his own civil suit. I'm not surprised his form is terrible, although whether this is normal for him, the mental pressure of it all or just plain pique who knows.

For the umpteenth time, I do not delete posts because of people's views - if that was the case the board would be empty and I would delete your view of me!!

I have deleted very little on this board and what I have deleted is because it was either spam (i.e thought dem days is over and other stupid posts that brainless idiots think are funny), xenophobic in law, racist in law or just plain bullying or profane.

You forget, I have no affiliation with this board and there are administrators and other moderators who can delete anything they like. You lot just like to have a go at me because you don't like MY views.

In terms of political views, I don't see the problem if anyone wants to share their view on anything (including politics) but it seems that every time a remainer makes their view known they are bullied by the Brexiteers.

It would be interesting to see what another referendum would bring especially when you think how many young people were not old enough to vote two years ago and how many older people are not of this earth anymore. Could be as much as a 10% swing I reckon but that was my last provocative word on the subject (for a while) ;0)).

If you’re scared of a second referendum, it means you’re scared of what your countrymen will do once armed with facts. It’s like instigating a bar fight, all bluster and chest-thumping, then learning you and your friends will be lining up against 20 MMA fighters. Might want a chance to rethink that, buy em a beer, and try to make nice. Either way, no “better deal” is going to be struck, no matter who’s running things. The better deal is a self-serving talking point for ambitious politicians. There is no additional leverage to strike a better deal, the EU is holding the better cards - and knows it. They’re a unified body, you have to placate Northern Ireland, Scotland, etc. That’s one American’s perspective anyway. We just had our version of a second referendum, and, even in the midst of tax cuts and a booming economy, the results speak for themselves. My guess is that, as in the U.S., women would change their votes in droves — they’re always more sensible!

Trouble with the vast majority of Americans Drago is that they don't understand the English. That includes you. When there's a real fight to be fought the crap that's drifted to the top (the likes of Heath, Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron and May) will get flushed away and a Churchill or a Thatcher will emerge, as per Trump in the States. We don't do groveling; never have, never will.

Geezer "remember where you come from"? Did you really write that xenophobic nonsense?

My mother was C of E and my father was jewish. I was brought up in comparative poverty in west London at a time when the UK was indebted to the US for multiple BILLIONS, the world was seconds form disaster with the Cuban missile crisis, we had no power after dark due to miners strikes, bread shortages, top income tax rates at 90%, water stand pipes, restricted travel in Europe, racism at an all time high, a heavy influx of foreigners (more than today) and people leaving the country in droves to look for a better life.

Yes, I remember where I come from.......

Why is that xenophobic? The bigger the word, the easier it is to throw around. You're from Paddington and a single room family. I'm from a single room family four miles away on Ifield Road. For those who don't know what a single room family is, it's when you and your parents eat, live and sleep all in one small room with a shared toilet and no bath. Makes a shoebox on the central reservation look attractive. Geezer, I believe, is from the gasworks end of town, which is hardly Knightsbridge. We all remember our upbringing, but for me the memories are of school mates, street football, playing on bomb sites, the cage at Eelbrook Common and shopping in North End Road. You seem to remember the bad things, most of which were unimportant to kids or, like blackouts, became an adventure. Being proud of your country is called patriotism. Xenophobia implies a dislike, or worse, of other nationalities. Geezer's posts don't fit that profile and he no doubt doesn't want or need to be given a history lesson and get slapped around by your keyboard. You seem very techy the last few days. As Morty said above, lighten up.

I cannot believe it but whilst I do see Ranierin as passionate and will work in future for Fulham, he won’t save us from relegation and won’t repeat reasons why. However, please do not fall into the terrible mistake of bringing former players at Leicester to this club. The player in question is the Algerian Slimani reject at £30m. Feneberche who have him on loan want to give him back to Leicester in January but they are refusing. He has only scored 3 goals in all competition and is now on the bench. He was also offloaded by Newcastle on loan and worst booked 4 times and sent off in 15 games. He is truly as bad as Mitrolou remember at Fulham? Mercy to Fulham and just go for decent recognised strikers who are also in form and outside chance being tempted to join us.

We don't need another striker. We won't get anyone better than Mitro, and Kamara has shown he is a good back up player. What we need is a good right back.and someone who can get the ball to the strikers. With Brian back and hopefully Chambers, I think things will improve.

Toure or not Toure; that is the question?

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to consider a 35 year old with experience of the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune in the Premier League or to take arms against the sea of troubles by appointing an under 28 year old with no premier league experience at all.

For who would bear the whips and scorns of time when Fulham are relegated after one season in the top flight.

Thus conscience does make cowards of us all and thus the native hue of resolution is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought that next season we will be back among the lowly of the Championship.

No cattle right now Morty. Thought we'd live here a year before deciding whether to raise beef or not. Good decision thus far as we're on supplemental feed already and realised livestock prices are accordingly low. Thinking about mini-herefords as a breeding stock given that small "exotics" are fetching good money as smallholding lawn objects.

So you’re just sitting around contemplating the state of the Union or riding the range playing your guitar ala Gene Autrey style. I’m jealous. Herefords are very attractive, I can see mini ones being a bit like having a St. Bernard in the house. Are these “ exotics” a natural follow on fron the ubiquitous Vietnamese Pot Bellied Poker? Sounds very trendy and potentially extremely financially rewarding. I wish you good luck.

NOW if you can het Andy King down to the Cottage that might be another matter and bring Danny Drinkwater in on loan from Chelsea together with Andreas Christensend that might be a bit useful.

I can't believe the depth of negativity on this site. Sure - we've had a disastrous start to our first season back in the top league. We've spent buckets of cash on a panic buy in the last week of the transfer window. We've bought players who look like they only met on the pitch for the first game. We've got a defence that couldn't keep out the Brunswick Boys club U11's Our recruitment policy is being run by a bunch of incompetents whose only qualification for the job is the fact that Daddy owns the club We're under investigation for suspect transfer deals. Despite all of that we are only three points off 16th place, have a new manager who's going to change things around (takes time by the way), have a transfer window coming up, have a few winnable fixtures in the next few weeks and on top of that we are not the bookie's favourites to go down or even second favourites! Think of where we were at the equivalent stage last season - let's get all the crap out of the way. Cardiff have had their little spell - won't last Huddersfield are nothing like as good as us, Palace Southampton, Newcastle all have major problems Burnley in free fall Jeez guys - lighten up for Christ's sake!

Optimist I like your attitude, but I can't agree with you, that we have a few winning games coming up. Next up it's West Ham, who apart from that lapse against Man City, are in very good form, and it's not a side that we hardly ever beat, even last time that we ere in this Division, and they beat Newcastle 3-0 away in their last away fixture, and they beat Palace 3-2 last Saturday, a team we lost 0-2 at home to them. We then go to Newcastle, who have lost their last two home matches, they will certainly but up for our games, as they will not want to lose a third home game on the trot. On Boxing day, we are at home to Wolves, a team that have just beaten Chelsea and Newcastle, and they will be out to prove that they were the best team in the Championship last season, despite our boast of being the best team. Next up Huddersfield, who fought like fury against Arsenal and only lost 1-0 with a goal scored right at the end. This was against a team that we lost 1-5 at home to. Then of course we visit Arsenal. Optimistic, can really see us getting more than 1 point during these fixtures. Well I certainly can't. Roll on Oldham when we will probably keep a clean sheet ! !

As to the transfer window, who's doing the picking and who, with any class, would want to take a ticket to the championship? Keep the faith Optimist; you represent a beacon of hope in an otherwise very gloomy picture.

4 points from 2 home games and the other 2 away games were Chelsea and Man U which nobody would have given us much chance of getting anything from. Ranieri needs a bit of time and I remain optimistic we will stay up. Call in blind optimism if you like, but I feel happier that way!

Everyone knows our main problem is in defence and I believe we could go a long way towards fixing that by getting Gary Cahill in on loan. It would suit us and Chelsea and it's got to make sense for the player. He could restore confidence to the likes of Ream and Mawson and with a run I'm sure Bryan will show us what he can do. Take all defensive duties away from Sess and we'll get the best from him. We really are not that far off being safe lower half standard. Oh and finally, Seri just has to better than what we have seen so far. just find the switch and I'm sure we'll be pleasantly surprised

Proof of the pudding and all that. Let me see, we’ve beaten Burnley and Southampton. Shipped 40 goals in 16 games and are currently propping up the rest. Infact need to gain 4 points over 17th placed team to escape the relegation zone. That is to assume the 3 teams above us don’t gain any points. Hmmm. Admire you’re optimism but don’t call the rest of us surrender monkeys, more realists. Your proposition is based on quite a few ‘ifs’ and hopefully they come to pass, but the situation is what is, dire.

I got the reference, it’s said tongue in cheek. There are positive signs, if you care to look. We’ve abandoned Fosu-Mensah, moved Sess into attack permanently, discovered Chambers, seen Mawson and Rico come good, reinstalled AK47 as a vital piece with the ability to hurt other teams. We learned that without possession, like away against the top 6, it’s wise to bench TC...but we need him for the full 90 minutes against everybody else. All small steps forward to finding our best and most reliable XI. We’re also closer to locking in on 4-2-3-1 system. Last year’s 4-3-3 and the 3-4-3 we toyed with, left us too open. United was a step backwards for Ranieri. But the last month, even including Slavs final matches, we started to figure out everyone’s best position. To me there are only a couple questions left. Who is our “best” left back? And would StefJo or Macca be better for team balance and cohesion than Seri? I still believe if the right players play in the right system we can succeed. But with this team against this competition, it’s walking a tightrope. If we don’t get it perfect, both manager and players, we go splat.

Drago' i would just like to add on to compliments about AK-47 Kamara. I was banging that drum before lots recognised how good he could be. Kamara is by no means the finished article yet, but i have always stuck in his corner when people have written him off. I am not looking for a sorry, or why i am obsessing over Kamara etc, i am just happy for the guy, and that an astute and knowledgeable manager like Ranieri can also see his potential. Also really pleased that more Fulham fans are now seeing his potential and use in this nervous Fulham squad. I like what the Optimist is saying, and i really feel that we will beat this relegation record from our position, and beat the odds for the drop. We will concede the most goals ever probably, but we will have enough talent to survive the drop.

As bad as things may be at the moment I don’t believe that any team in the history of football let alone the Premier League has been officially relegated at the beginning of December. There is obviously major cause for concern, there is a huge gap between us and the bigger hitters in this league. There is however a mini league forming toward the foot of the table and points wise we are still in the mix. January transfer business is obviously crucial but surely it is far too early to be throwing in the towel.

With season tickets sold out this season and the unlikelihood of staying in this division, I doubt there will be any issues relocating fans from the riverside stand in other parts of the ground. In the unlikely event however, that Fulham stay in the Premier League, I would seriously hope that other season ticket holders do not have to accommodate riverside seaters and that the Putney End will be their destination. I can’t see though, how you can seat 6,000 riversiders in the Putney end and still have room for the mandatory number of away fans for each game.
Replies
My guess is that any redevopment will be contingent on us remaining in this division, which is most unlikely. On that note, there is an interesting analysis on Fulham’s woes in today’s Times. Definitely worth reading and certainly adds perspective to Seri’s performances to date.....
posted by Rm (Guest) - Tuesday 11th December 2018, 7:49 AM
 
Surely with a lower capacity the mandatory number of away fans will be lower too? I am hoping to be relocated to the Hammy End as opposed to the Putney, but not at the expense of someone else's seat as that would not seem fair. I am pretty sure that there is a limit to the number of ST's as some tickets have to be held back for cash sales, although I may be wrong. If that is the case, then hopefully there will be room in the Hammy End and JH stands for many of the ST holders in the RS. Not sure how they will work it out, loyalty points or via some form of draw.

Ground improvement is a capital expenditure. Done properly it enhances the value of the real estate while contributing to cash flow. Straightforward business decision. Who's moaning? As for "making a few mistakes this season" would that have anything to do with the certainty of us being relegeted due to Khan's ineptitude? Then there's the small problem of two fraud investigations hanging over the club which, as Cali pointed out, you all seem reluctant to discuss. The whole shambles is down to Khan Jr. and McIntosh and you're blowing smoke up Khan's ass? Incredible.

It's not "city talk", it's straightforward business and yes, I am serious, but that's a whole different discussion. By the way, I also think the plans look very good. As to the players, I couldn't agree more. With the exception of Rico and Mitro and probably Odoi the rest have been a massive disappointment and that's down to them. They're all highly paid professionals and yet - no pace, no width, no vision, no heart. Being six or seven thousand miles away I can't comment on performance other than what I see through the lens of the TV camera and so I defer to those who actually watched the game live. I have a better view of the business end of things and so I watch the Khans in the US news, watch Kline on Twitter, follow the USM shenanigans in the press, online and on here. My views on capital investment are as valid and as relevant as yours on team selection and player performance. Yes, in our own ways, we're all Fulham fans. Long may we continue.
