This is a nutshell is what is wrong We are in a relegation battle they are fighting for top spot So staked high for both They trust youth we don’t Anyone who’s seen both know both good but spurs academy coach has said he rates Matt better just they have more belief in their youth!!
Replies
Its not just O'Riley... Steven Sessegnon is better than Christie and Fosu Mensah, Ryan Sessegnon is being destroyed by CR, either subbing him at half time or bringing him on for the last 10 minutes of a match. Another reason we should have stuck with SJ, he had a plan for all the youth players who were good enough, he gave Sess his chance and O'Riley and fellow Sess would have go theres, CR wants his bonus for keeping us up, he wont risk 18 year olds with no experience, he isnt willing to risk a 18 year old with a 100 appearances behind him! I like Joe Bryan but the perfect position for Sess in this formation is a Left Wing Back he is perfect model for that position, pace, decent defensively but not quite a left back, great going forward and pops up with very important goals. Now Babel has arrived i doubt we will see much of Sess this season at all...

Well that was a fun day politically yesterday wasn't it? Two and half years to work out that a cross party agreement on Brexit might be the best way forward. Unbelievable!

Anyway back to football:

Ryan Babel's recruitment is an absolute joke in my opinion and it's about time Shahid Khan personally investigated what is going on with recruitment at our club.

I have made no secret of the fact that I think Ranieri is a buffoon and it seems that he has compounded my opinion of him by convincing Tony Khan that we need a 32 year old journeyman who couldn't hit a cow's whatsit with a banjo!

Tony Khan wrote on Twatter that there will be multiple signings in January that will save our club from relegation but I reckon by the time the window closes the average age of the squad will have increased by 10 years and we will finish the season with several records:

Most goals conceded
Least games won
Most games lost
Not sure about least points as I seem to remember that Derby went down with about 15.
Replies
Least points will be Huddersfield. Most points gained from Feb to May = Fulham. Ryan Babel to be top scorer in PL from Feb to May. Fulham to have the best defensive record in PL from Feb to May. Crikey I just had a lovely dream and have just woken up to reality!

Not going to argue whether brining pensioners in is a guarantee to survival. What I Will argue is that when CR signed he must have left it blatently clear to TK who or what he was going to nead and that it had to be sorted out by very early january or else CR would be off.
posted by T.NO (Guest) - Thursday 17th January 2019, 10:45 AM
 
Until we see how Babbel plays I won’t stick up for him or knock him. But I will say that he worked his way back into the Netherlands team and done pretty well in the UEFA tournament and they will be playing England in the semi-final this year.

I don't post much,as I prefer to keep my head below the parapet,but I must say that MST makes many valid points (most of the time!)and I agree with absolutely everything he has just said. What I find even more depressing in these deeply depressing times is looking at the official website,which I reget to say remains continuously bland.Where is the motivation for the fans on here?As usual a complete lack of information except for a lot of palaver about a very mediocre new signing.

don't read it mst and you wont have a hisyfit! it looks as if at least 10 clubs in England Germany and scotland are interested in buying him. so why are Fulham the least interested in playing him? probably as Ranieri doesn't like youth but more likely corruption, some one must be coining it from usm, why hasn't this been sorted by khan? it cant be him as he could buy out usm a thousand times over.

Im a season ticket holder. After the first few games i knew we were playing not very good . But with what has been going on at the club. I have not been going to any away games of which i do most of. And not been to a lot of homes because of the game changes [fifteen in all]. And time changes. As i have other things in my life to do. And untill things change i will not be going to any more games. And waste my time and money. Just my own little protest.

Nosser, your post got hijacked. Sems t be the in thing on this forum probably because most stick their heads in the sand and can't see or won't see the broader corruption problem at the club and would rather point to squirrels. O'Riley is the litmus test of Rainieris management capability and he's failed it. The swamp continues.

To be honest I can't get my head around it.

Of course I have read what's on twatter and in the press from the links that have been posted on this board but if there is such massive corruption at our club (and others) how come the world and his wife know the intimate details yet the authorities don't.

It doesn't make sense to me because if it is as bad as it has been portrayed then, the Government quango (or whatever organisation is set up to investigate fraud within) would be hauling people in to explain why there has been no prosecutions.

Perhaps I'm being naïve but what we are being expected to believe about Premier League clubs and USM is along the scale of the Watergate affair. So I'm not burying my head in the sand, I just find it difficult to believe that something of the scale that has been portrayed on this board and in the media and social media has not been closed down by the authorities. If the world and his wife supposedly know about it then why don't they? It just doesn't make sense.....

Nosferatu sorry i nicked your post. I agree with you about the kids. Patrick Roberts was another one we lost. He came on at Middlesbrough just after we went down. And they could not handle him. And if we dont watch out we will lose the next bunch of them. Instead we splash out on rubbish. He could have saved himself pot loads. Drop the lot we got and play them. Then may be we may come up a lot better prepared .Leeds are playing some of their kids and the kid Clarke made both against Derby and got man of the match.

These are the basic requirements for new players. FFC seem to go for recovering players who do not guarantee a starting date. Kneews rarely get better long term but it seems TK is driven by the price - even to the extent of shafting new players (Seri). What a man, what a disaster!

I can understand DUP voted against the deal. I can almost understand SNP (as a nation wanted stay in EU) and Lib Dem (most of them are remainers) voted against the deal. Yes, the likes of Johnson and Mogg have hidden agenda but on the whole, each MP was allowed to make their own judgement about the deal. Why can't any of The Labour MPs make their own decision (for their constituent) on the deal?? There was no party politics when we had the referendum - there SHOULD NOT be any party politics when we vote on any deals. Otherwise, no solution will ever be found!!

We need to change the law so party politics must be put aside for any referendum issues! Otherwise, what is the point!?
Replies
Agree 100% but it became party political and may I say, even personal, the moment that Theresa May became prime minister without an election.

I doubt any of us have read the deal in any detail but leaving the EU without any kind of deal on duty, free movement, pensions, driver's licenses, passports, etc., etc., etc. would be absolute madness and will cost people their jobs, their homes and their livelihoods.

This is what happens when you give people who have no idea what they are voting for a free vote. If we had a second referendum now many older people who voted will be dead or incapable and youngsters ineligible to vote at the time would now be eligible so the outcome could be completely different. Just this dynamic alone means that the current political temperature may NOT be the will of the (current) people.

I say call the whole thing off because the UK is embarrassing to the rest of the World right now as Fulham is to the Premier League!

That is totally undemorcratic, the mp’s are not carrying out the will of the majority of people who voted, and I for one new what I was voting for, and that was out with no deal, start from scratch and go from there

MST I think youve nailed it when you mention about undocumented voters being able to excercise this democratic right . In a general election if the elected party puts a country in a shambles, it can normally be re routed in the next 4-8 years. If you get it wrong in a referendum it may nead a generation to get back on track.You may have deducted from previous posts that I dont live in the UK. I run a business which only imports from the UK and at the time of the referendum I was persoanlly not too bothered about Brexit as I had already had some basic experiance in my early years dealing with import taxes,etc when Spain had still not entered the E.U. The consequences today are far different. Brutal Burocracy and possibly malintentioned practices are on the drawingboard, so as a certain saying goes (which I cant remember right now) even geniuses change their mind. PS:This post has no intention of supporting either option. I fully respect, understand and initially supported it, but unfortunately these extremly important matters are handled by politicians....
posted by T.NO (Guest) - Wednesday 16th January 2019, 9:44 AM
 
MST, you are so wrong about the youngsters voting to stay in. I deal with many youngsters, who were not old enough to vote in the last referendum, but they have seen what a treacherous lot the EU are, are not all of course, but the majority would vote to come out of the EU. If another referendum was held, which it won't be, then a huge majority to come out would win. So what is the point of another vote MST, it would be a complete waste of time and money, as the result would be the same. Stick to what you know about Fulham, in your comfort zone.
posted by Brian Jarvis (Guest) - Wednesday 16th January 2019, 9:47 AM
 
Well said Brian, I think the vote would have been even wider to leave if voters were made to take I.d to vote, and let’s not get into the double voting by some students or the comical postal voting scam
posted by Democracy (Guest) - Wednesday 16th January 2019, 9:50 AM
 
Brain, where did I write that youngsters would vote remain?? Right, I DIDN'T - I just wrote the dynamic COULD be completely different.

You are paraphrasing and making up things in your head - a bit like a politician.

And, by the way you are referring to one small part of "little" Britain that you might know not the whole country so why not stop making seeping statements about something which you clearly do not know too much.

You have no idea what I know and do not know so please debate by all means but don't go making sweeping statements or suppositions about what you think I know or not - you just make yourself look stupid.

My point is less about who is voting for what, or even what I'd prefer (btw remaim). My point is the law is F*&KED! We need to rethink our democratic process for Referendums. Right now, it's a complete joke and the country is a bigger laughing stock than Fulham FC. You wouldn't think that is possible!!!

Firstly, we need to introduce some law to ensure we have integrity (i.e. not mis-leading or even a pack of lies made up) in the promises made during referendum.

Secondly, if we act on a referendum decision, party politics must be put aside and create cross party and completely independent team to deliver. No conflict of interest for themselves or their party. Only in the interest of the country.

Thirdly, this idea that it is not democratic for the country to change their mind is ridiculous. For argument sake, if 99% of the country now want to remain - are we saying we should still go ahead for the sake of it. And no one would say it isn't democratic. I know we don't have 99% but where is the line that a change of mind is considered democratic!?

If we argue Brexit on this forum we will simply read the repetitive junk we have had for the past 18 months. Seems to me that nobody knows for certain what could happen whether leave with no deal (so called experts disagree), leave with Mrs May's botch-up (so called experts disagree), stay in as suggested by EU leaders (yes, surely they have our best interests at heart). I'm still voting OUT (if asked) but have no confidence in Mrs May's power or desire to deliver (how can anyone trust her?).
posted by willie2B (Guest) - Wednesday 16th January 2019, 11:00 AM
 
As I wrote above John I agree 100% and for people to say they knew what they were voting for is absolute nonsense because nobody even knows NOW what they voted for in terms of leave.

Not even MPs can agree on what it is now let alone at the time of the referendum so how could anybody make a conscious vote in all honesty knowing what they voted for and the implications.

We were all fed a load of propaganda and rhetoric by a bunch of people who only had political motives rather than what leaving (or staying) in the EU actually means to businesses, ex pats, the man in the street right now and for future generations to come.

One expensive cock up made by Cameron who just walked and left the rest of us to pick up the pieces and argue amongst ourselves.

I agree with most of your comments John apart from the last part John, the vote was taken two years ago and that was the outcome. If we go by your reasoning we will never make a decision as people will always complain if the decision wasn’t what they wanted. And I have to say I’m in Sussex and would say about 80% f the people I speak to want out. I also run two companies, one of which is national and the people I speak to in various regions also want out. For the record I am not anti Europe my family are originally from Germany and my wife is French. But the EU is the biggest ponzu scene scam going, they are unelected, have not produced any audited accounts, and this idea of one rule for every country simply doesn’t work as we’ve seen with various counties economies in ruin due to the EU rules put on them and there inability to control there own interest rates. And as for free movement that’s a disaster waiting to happen correction it already has with unveted people entering the UK

As somebody else has said on this post this was never a political thing . Perhaps somebody should have set up a cross party group at the beginning of negotiations .

A vote that took part two and a half years ago is old hat, and means sod all now. Only the repercussions from leaving. Apart from the fact that the ballot paper ONLY had leave or stay in the EU, NOT to leave the single market nor the customs union nor the European Court of Justice, which the government forced through parliament. That's not obeying the will of the people, in my book.

Good read Rich & it is a shame Fulham like most other PL clubs can't or won't give a chance to young players. Would Ryan S be hot property if CR was in charge 3yrs ago ?. FFC have lost a few good young players with talent & no return for there investment over the last few years... Slavisa will pluck 1 or 2 at his next club.

Time to lighten things up a bit with a funny but true story. Walked down from my gaff the day before the 1-0 win v Huddersfield to the team store and treated myself to an AK kit as I liked his desire & goals he got us earlier. The next day he had that howler with the penalty now this. Thinking I'll buy Eden Hazard, Aguerro, Pogba, Salah kits tomorrow? Any other suggestions lads?

Maybe not ideal to sign a 32 year striker who previously struggled on the premier league. But I am happy we have a new player. We need to make some changes. But where is he going to play? He’s not going to replace Mitro and unless CR plays 2 up front, he’d play on the left wing. My question is shouldn’t we try to find a right wing striker. We already have Sess and Schrulle who both preferred to play on the left sideZ on the right we have Kamara, who’d rather play centre forward and turning out to be a disruptive player. I’d rather buy a natural right wing striker. We still haven’t found the width on the right since we lost Frederick and it’s a space we need to fix more urgently than the left! So will be interested in the formation CR will play!

Just a combination of not understanding football!! I wrote before, you can throw money as you can throw s...t and a fan and hopes some sticks. The truth is and I would love to know the truth, who recruited SJ? How lucky were we and how lucky the Khans! I cannot believe it was either of them but would love to be proved wrong!! We had an extraordinary flair and identity, played great football and with SJ., got promoted. I admit, the only signings I knew were Mawson and Schurle. Schurle was on loan and Mawson was apparently £15m. SJ had nothing to do with transfers? True or false? Mawson injured, Cairney injured, Ream injured, Bryan injured....need I repeat myself again. A couple of bottle cases who know nothing about football! May have plenty of money but, we are all capable of spending that unwisely! A great great shame and huge mistake ditching SJ for CR...……..sorry but, WE ARE DOWN and I fear, for some time and I only hope it is not a freefall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just goggle ‘daily mirror slavisa jokanovic interview’ for the truth about SJ and our transfers. Catogorically denies having any involvement. Interview from December 20th 2018.

Slavisa was one of Khans better brainwaves, i think daddy Khan. I think Slavisa was always on our radar through his successful stint at Watford. I don't know the politics on why he quit Watford, but Slavisa Managed a top team in Isreal for a while. I think the first time of enquiring about Slavisa, there was no chance of signing him because of contract problems. Slavisa made it known that he was looking for a way back to England and preferably a London club. To tell you the truth, if we go down? I would love him to come back. In the Championships, bring back piazon, Fredericks, Malone, and Aluko. I miss those guys...

Owen I would have Piazon out of the four you mention, Broken leg & jaw back training in double quick time, only on loan but plenty of heart & bottle, Fredricks did he read between the lines & got out when the going was good? As you know I'am not a TK fan & it's easy to criticize with hindsight, at least the under 28 philosophy has gone. Wise head, slower legs are better in a dog fight than 22yr old learners with good stats from French D1 or 2. Maybe baby Khan is Is taking advice & there might be a glimmer of hope. Lets hope so.

Don't know why he's suddenly turned into a troublemaker under Ranieri. No sogns of any of this under Slavisa. Me thinks the Khans have screwed up again with CRs appointment. Not to worry, other than being upset about losing Sess & Mitro next year I quite prefer the Chanpionship. More matches and more parity. This thing about only 4-5 teams in the running to win the Prem every year is boring.
Replies
THe Khans may be respossable for many things but come on a scrap between 2 players is there fault. Kamara was in the wrong, the manager aponts a penalty taker and thats the end of the matter,Kamara acted like a arogent s..t and should have been fined another weakness on the managers part..

Look at the way CR publicly shamed AK after the penalty miss. He has no respect for his players. When you don't respect your staff, they won't respect you. He's lost the dressing room.

Kamara wrong seems to be a common phrase on here, how many more times do we let this happen? Give him what he is due disciplinary wise, let him know that any other issues connected with him on or off pitch will not be tolerated. Is it a weakness from the manager or is he under orders from the board? It seems we are picking certain players irrespective if they are playing well, have discipline issues or if they are not trying, is this also down to the board? I am not a Ranieri fan but looking at it from his view point how is he supposed to get results when he probably can only pick half of the team, the rest must be picked. Some of the players he is having to pick are not premier league standard, it’s looking like he will not be picking who we sign which is another problem. Not sticking up for Ranieri but did he not discuss this at his interview stage? I’m really not convinced about his methods but I feel he is not being given a fair chance by the board. I would not have picked him to manage us at any price but this does seem that if he goes another manager will suffer the same problems. Are the club willing to gamble on staying up? Will they further invest in new players? Will they allow the manager to select his own eleven? I am not convinced they will. We seem to have gone from an unpredictable, honest, decent and enjoyable club to a completely unprofessional chaotic shambles.

Ridiculous! Now Ranieri will drop Kamara permanently. What sense does that make when we need pace and power? I know he doesn't hit the target enough, but who is the better option in that department? Schurrle got his goal early against Burnley and from the way how things sound, he didn't have to put in any more of a shift. I was hoping that AK-47 would be back for the Spurs game but apparently, after that spat in the yoga lesson, Ranieri will drop him completely. I have defended Ranieri all along up to this point, but if Kamara isn't included in the squad? I have a few words to say concerning Ranieri. We are rubbish' and there is no one in this team that stands out head and shoulders above the rest. There is no Harry Kane, and no Song apparently. This is our chance to have a good go at Spurs. I am not watching Mitrovic trying to run at their defenders because he cant run. Schurrle is too limp wristed. Christie can't defend and he is worse than Fredericks for crossing. Joe Bryan is not up to premier league. I could go on. What is the point of Yoga anyway? I can understand Schurrle doing it, but guys like Kamara need pace power and accuracy training. Is Ranieri turning into that dim wit Magath? I hope not! Reinstate Kamara and i say nothing!We are average crap at best, and if we are going to lose to Tottenham? I would rather watch AK-47 burn some pace, rather than watch limp wrist Schurrle do Yoga on the pitch!

Gaz' 'Yoga'? I don't blame him for taking the micky about that nonsense. Kamara isn't the best, but what about Spurs weekend? We are rubbish and no Kamara Sunday we have no pace to worry Spurs. If Sessegnon plays? Ranieri will want him to sprint back and defend like a lunatic. On a counter, the lad has no chance. Our defenders are so bad that Ranieri needs Mitrovic to back up defence issues all the time. When we get the ball on a counter, these guys are expected to do too much. We clearly didn't have enough to trouble Burnley and even a spurs without kane, we still will be going in light. Spurs will have not much to worry about with our comedy team. Kamara is sometimes a headless chicken, but he has pace, and he can run at the spurs back-line and just maybe create something. We have the window and we should get better than Kamara, but in the meantime?

As a manager of a department, if any of my staff behaved like AK47, his feet wouldn't touch the ground, and he would be out of my company like a flash. I for one don't want him in our team, even if it would mean us losing, and quite honestly what I have seen of him, he would be lucky to get into Crawley Town's team, so he won't make difference between winning or losing. It's now Tuesday and we were expecting some signings today, so it's another case of more lies daily. Without a good defender and at least one more striker, even Spurs reserves will beat us.

posted by Gaz (Guest) - Tuesday 15th January 2019, 6:52 PM
 
I totally agree and respect what you say Mick and it sounds like you have a brilliant firm and staff. Kamara's crime was to take a poor penalty. Both he and Mitro are competitive strikers. Why throw in the towel to Spurs on Sunday? I am not bothered what happens now, but why not use the best of what we have? Ranieri will probably not play Kamara because of some principle and honour bull...sh.., We will probably lose 5-1 and everyone can say hip hip hooray for principles. Grabbing a ball and insisting on taking a penalty shows a competitive edge at one time. Off all the things gone wrong at our club, and putting up with a substandard team. I still think that Kamara is one of the best of a bad bunch. I think Toyota at Derby incorporates yoga into their work days. A few titterings about this nonsense is much ado about nothing really. Try it in your works department mick? I guarantee you would probably get some similar reaction to Kamara's attitude to it. Much ado about nothing and we might as well bring back Felix Magath if we are going down that road...

Gaz' your question is mental, we play Spurs Sunday. Kamara should have been included against Burnley and even gentleman Jim on TV commentary was bewildered at no Kamara. Yoga is a nonsense and i wouldn't blow my top at this spat. We were over the top with Kamara over a penalty in my opinion.There are too many problems to be dealing with at Fulham. We are rubbish mate, and not looking forward to watching vegi Schurrle wimp out up front Sunday. Bring back Kamara all day long...

SJ has gone & we are left with a squad including AK. Not one has put the club first & we now have CR with still no response from the players. Regardless of the manager not one player has put in a shift. So how many managers shall we go through before people realise they need to tell the children to grow up & put up a fight or do one.

Why are you calling peoples posts mental and ridiculous, why did you dig out a Leicester fan the other day, Why did you have a go at the Welsh guy? It’s not surprising that you like Kamara it’s because he is like you, ignorant and arrogant with no idea.

This board is for people to post what they feel about issues at the club, players, managers and the like. If some folk on here do not agree then so be it. I cannot understand why some posters on here feel they are duty bound to insult the original poster. This is happening quite a lot with one individual, who it seems is trying to dominate this board with a repetitive posts that are nonsense in some cases and borderline rude in others. The answer is, if posts are put on here that you don’t agree with make your point but don’t use words that offend. The other option is to ignore the post and don’t reply.

I thought it was a good passionate debate myself, and as for dominating this board? I wish my team could dominate some football. Who is writing these posts, Prince Charles? It is just a forum on here and not worth crying about. Hit back at me with something. Have we got somebody in our reserves blessed with pace who can play Sunday? I asked that question which is valid countless times and i can not get an answer. Yes i stick up for Kamara because he is not gutless. This Fulham team has down tools and some refuse to fight which is not acceptable. What is also not acceptable, is some fans chalking off each game as a loss, that is shocking! This yoga nonsense is actually incorporated into a Hindu and Buddhist religion. I am guessing from Kamara's first name, that he certainly would not find yoga acceptable and he will not take it seriously. Just an educated guess from Owen the big Hijacker of forums. Sorry that the word mental was upsetting and ridiculous. I did say it was ridiculous that Ranieri drops Kamara the paceman? I think that is a good point myself but what do i know? Roll on Sunday to Spurs. Sorry' we have lost that one, what is the next game? Lets al wimp out of this league together...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Wednesday 16th January 2019, 7:13 PM
 
What a complicated person you are, Did you also realise that Kamara had another spat with Johansen at the training ground?. Hopefully he is sold to the Turks and maybe you could go on their forum. By the way your other guy is going to Marseille on loan. Nearer than Turkey.
posted by Graham (Guest) - Wednesday 16th January 2019, 8:29 PM
 
Okay Graham' Kamara is gone. I hope Babbel can be good for Fulham. Let us see Ranieri mould his Fulham and bring his own players in, or i should say the Fulham Hierarchy bring in the next lot. I questioned our lack of pace, and maybe we will get someone in soon. I never thought Kamara was brilliant, i always said that he was a rough diamond, but worth working on. He is still learning his trade at age 22. Maybe he should stay with the turks. That penalty spat and the yoga was too much. Nuff said on Kamara now methinks...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Wednesday 16th January 2019, 8:47 PM
 
Eureka!!!!!Owen for once it is a pleasure to say you are correct with your comment about the Hierarchy buying the players. I’m not a Ranieri fan as I have said before but blimey what’s he got to work with. The board have no football knowledge with regard to recruitment. We need players that get stuck in, they don’t get this as their other team get wrapped up in body armour from head to toe. We need to have a right go at it from now to the end of the season, just for prides sake. If we can let Kamara, O’Reilly, and some of last years hero’s go you would have thought we could replace them with someone who is better than them. Also I thought they had installed an age limit on incoming players, does this mean we will recruit young players who are better than what we have let go? If so why Babel? Ranieri has taken the job on and hasn’t t been given the tools to do it. Even if we don’t think he can do the job he has never been allowed to do it properly.

The situation at this club is getting worse by the day, since we have been in the premier league we seem to have lost many things, player unrest with the new recruits, lack of energy on the pitch from some players, a newly signed player in dispute with the club regarding finances, SJ getting the sack, new players not good enough, players diving, players disputing who should take penalties and now players fighting. There is absolutely no discipline at the club from the top down. Kamara we know is a hot head and admittedly he does try hard to play well, problem with him is him. He dives and it was not received well by the fans, or some of them. He follows this up with not allowing the chosen penalty taker to take this very important penalty, he misses the penalty and costs us a potential result. Now he is involved in a scuffle with a fellow player. What will happen? Nothing would be my guess. We all know the situation we are in but why would a transfer target want to sign for us giving the unrest at this club? To achieve the impossible the first thing required is harmony at the club from top to bottom. We have a manager who doesn’t have a system to work with, he also does not have the players to implement any system he thinks would be beneficial to us. To top this he has players not working hard enough, no leader on the pitch and now players fighting. What should he do? My personal opinion is irrespective of who we sign Ranieri would not be able to keep us up, why? because he is, like our new players not good enough. The common denominator for me is Tony Khan, he introduced the new players, he sacked SJ, he employed Ranieri. Rant done.
Replies
We’re a laughing stock! And Tony Khan is to blame! His heart is definitely in the right place but he just doesn’t understand football. The problem is he is so arrogant he believes he is right and the majority of us are wrong. The man as stated on many occasions by so many different people is using our club to play a real life ‘football manager’ game.

To think we were the future once. All that optimism - a poor mans man city - all to be dashed away with Slav's sacking. We are gonna end up in the championship with a manager who is totally inexperienced at that level. There is hope, but not for us.
Replies
It was a serious mistake to let Slav go. A huge business error. However, I am sure the club understood it as a risk. The risk hasn't paid off so far - and now we have to wonder if it will have a huge negative impact on us next season in the Championship. If the risks of the decision outweigh the potential gains then why would the club go ahead and do it, and sack Slav? It's an example of risky management. I hope they have a recovery plan.

Agree it was a bad call. The club’s only defence is if Slavisa refusing to sign a new contract, meaning he would still be with us even if we get relegated. But for me, even if he doesn’t want to commit himself, it was a bad decision to sack him and appointing Ranieri. The club failed to recognised the different football CR brings (shows their lack of deep football understanding) and whether that would work with our group of players! I know hindsight is a great thing but I like to think we have enough football Brains to know asking players such as schrulle, sess, Cairney, Kamara, seri and even Christie to play long ball and defend will take a long time to work - even if they wholeheartly bought into the system! We are now stuck with no identity and as a result we are still conceding but don’t know how to score anymore! Too late to bring Slavisa back even if the club make a big u turn and Slavisa prepared to come back! I really hope the club proves me wrong but it’s a nightmare!

We played well against Liverpool. We contained City away. We looked very positive against Palace and Spurs.

Slavisa started the season with an injured Ream and Mawson, plus Odoi suspended. Bryan and TC then got hurt almost immediately. Slav was instantly behind the eight ball. But he also shot himself in the foot, with Fabri, Anguissa, Vietto over proven players who’d bled for the club. The benching of KMac and StefJo changed the center of gravity in the locker room and on the pitch. Slav was naive tactically at first, but he was adjusting, putting Chambers in midfield and Rico in goal. But the slow start was also on the players and some awful mistakes (like Mitro’s handball that cost us two points, giveaways by Le Marchand and Seri). Nothing Slav could do about that! We should’ve trusted him, and he should’ve trusted the Wembley heroes.

Just got this news of Sky sports guys. Toure has stated that he has unfinished business back in England and that he made a mistake in going when he did to Olympiakos. Toure is 35 now and he goes on to say that he would like 1-2 more years back in the prem. I just think we should go for him? Yah-yah Toure to help out Tom in the midfield? Luverly Jubberly, just as long as Toure still got movement in his legs. He can't be worse than what we got now???

Cant believe there's so much criticism of the Khans. Money talks, and in the end it always counts. Money they have, and they are prepared to invest it heavily in our club. Sure they've made mistakes, expensive mistakes, but they always underwrite the subsequent losses and then pull out the cheque book again. As long as they carry on doing that everything will work out in the end. I also am impressed with plans for future club development: the Riverside development will cost 140M and is still very much alive, and they want to spend in the current window. Who on earth do people want to own the club?..Mike Ashley? Indian chicken farmers? Fans Collective? A "consortium of local business men"? No thanks

The new stand is meant to start as soon as this current season ends, and will take up to 2 years. For much of that time the riverside stand will be out of operation. Its planned for hospitality which is a big section (basically V and W blocks) to go off site to the Palace. The overall loss of seating will mean a reduction in match by match capacity, but not affect season ticket numbers. However, no contractual obligation to start has been signed as I understand it, so maybe a relegation might cause a rethink. But the general message from the owners is bullish and "its going to happen." We'll see

Phil I don't believe that too many people are questioning the Khan's financial commitment to the club. The issue is recruitment and my main issue is the first team coach/manager.

We bought in 12 (I think) players in the summer who all (I assume) meet the stats test for possession football we then sack the coach who brought this strategy to the club and bring in a kick and run merchant. Is it any wonder then that with players who are used to passing the ball we cannot change to a defend and counter attack strategy.

Tony Khan recruited the players in the summer and Ranieri in November; who else should we blame?

I don't do twatter but I heard Adrian Durham on Talk Sport read out a tweet from Tony Khan which went something like (and I paraphrase):

The points that our players have earned is not commensurate with their skill level but we are committed to staying in the Premier League so will do as we did in the summer and sign multiple players during this transfer window. Come on you whites!

Someone then responded (and I paraphrase again):

Get out of our club PLEASE.

Tony Khan then responded to that tweet with (paraphrased again):

I will be at his club until I die so go to hell!

Perhaps someone on this board who does twatter can confirm (or deny).

Thanks

What a fabulous goal from Andre Shurlle so let’s celebrate great technique. Cheer up now ..... the team very unlucky at Burnley. What with an easy run in with our last few games there is still hope. We know CR has beaten the odds and he is such a lovely human being. If we go down then so be it if we stay up great.BELIEVE.

we will go down in history conceding most goals in the premier league and get relegated but spent most money for a promoted championship club and have at potentially, and counting, two goal of the months....and not to forget first team to score two own goals and losing to a team who have not had a shot on target! We certainly don't do things by halves..

Look at the numbers in my post below. If I'm right he's going to cost 200,000 euros per game for a total of three million euros for the remainder of the season and all so we can assess whether he's up to playing in the PL and whether we want to sign him permanently. Khan has lost the plot completely.

last updated Monday 14th January 2019, 3:13 PM Sami Mokbel at Daily Mail Fulham Football Club Defensive midfielder Timothy Fosu-Mensah Defensive midfielder Timothy Fosu-Mensah More Timothy Fosu-Mensah Stories His Wiki page Claudio Ranieri’s bid for a Premier League loan signing has been hit by Manchester United wanting Tim Fosu-Mensah to stay at Fulham. Ranieri has made Gary Cahill his No1 target for January but has a maximum of two loans from top-flight clubs. Fosu-Mensah would be allowed to return to Old Trafford, with Calum Chambers a regular under Ranieri and previous boss Slavisa Jokanovic. But United want the Dutchman, 21, to fight for his place at Craven Cottage instead of being part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad. According to a United source, the club want Fosu-Mensah to learn how to fight his way back into contention at Fulham. They see his situation under Ranieri, where he has not started a game since November, as part of his learning process in senior football. Who is in charge here? Mensah is just not good enough, but UTD want him to stay here? When i thought it couldn't get any worse!!!!!

If you look at what Khan did with Jaguars it is a very similar model of building the infrastructure of the club before investing in the team.

Perhaps that's where he made his mistake at FFC by investing (too much) in the team before we got the infrastructure right. I guess we'll never know.....
posted by MST (Moderator) - Monday 14th January 2019, 1:15 PM
 
The new stand is a capital expenditure not dependent on gate receipts so no reason why it wouldn't go ahead. With reference to the Jaguars, remember there's no relegation in the NFL. Performance doesn't matter to longevity - you're there for keeps, although not necessarily at the same geographic location.

Besiktas board member Safak Mahmutyazicioglu has spoken to Haber Global and confirmed Ryan Babel will be signing for Fulham in this transfer window.

Mahmutyazicioglu said Fulham will loan the Besiktas winger until the end of the season and added: “We’ve agreed on a deal with Fulham for Babel. He will be loaned out for six months for €2m. He also has six months left on his current contract with us. He’s also agreed personal terms with the club.”

TRT Spor’s Besiktas journalist Firat Gunayer explained the reason behind the loan move: “Fulham loaned him because they want to see how well he will perform in the Premier League. If he impresses, then they will talk with him for a permanent transfer. He has no chance of returning to Besiktas because of the wages.”

At the weekend we covered claims from the Turkish media that the Netherlands international had agreed personal terms with Fulham and was close to joining the Premier League club.

It was claimed an announcement of his arrival should be made by Tuesday as Claudio Ranieri looks to bolster his squad before the transfer deadline.

Babel has experience playing in England after his spell with Liverpool, but he failed to make a real impact during the latter stages of his time at Anfield.

The player will become a free agent in the summer despite contract talks with the Istanbul club.

Let me see if I've got this right. We pay 2 million euros for a six month contract, three months of which are off-season, so lets say mid-January to end April or about fifteen weeks. So that's roughly 140,000 euros per playing week AND we pay his wages and bonus on top of that. Please tell me I misread something as these numbers make absolutely no sense whatsoever for a player of his stature.
posted by The Arizonan - Monday 14th January 2019, 3:38 PM
 
Further to the above; let's say his wages are 40,000 euros per week (about average it seems) and the contract is for 25 weeks. That would add another million euros to the cost for a total of three million euros for fifteen games or around 200,000 euros per game. We're in Lionel Messi country with those numbers and this, according to the press report, is so we can see whether he's up to playing in the PL. Beam me up Scotty, there's no intelligent life in this club.

So many on here were desperate to get him out in Oct/Nov last year. I am convinced he would have picked up just as many points if not more than Ranieri has done. The football is now dull and boring. So many reasons we should have stuck with the man who got us promotion, more attractive football, we had an identity, he has a proven track record of improving as a season progresses, if we get relegated he would have brought us straight back up. Really poor decision to remove him so early but understand why they panicked!

I miss the free flowing football and excitement, instead of everything flowing through Cairney he cant even get in the starting 11, seriously, how can any manager at any level in the world pick Seri above him?? Enough said!

According to the press, 32 year old Ryan Babel has already signed on loan for Fulham. For me this is the last straw and two season tickets or not, I cannot bring myself to be enthused by another five hour round trip to the Cottage on Sunday.

We have completely lost our identity by appointing Ranieri and Tony Khan is adding insult to injury by bringing in players who, let's face it, hardly set the world on fire in the Premier League when they were in the best form of their life so how on earth does he expect them to perform in a struggling team and save Fulham from relegation!

This for me compounds the fact that Shahid Khan has lost complete control of his Son who yet again, is taking advice from the wrong people. During the summer we bought in a shed load of ball players who are now being asked to "get stuck in" and "lump the ball up front" with no finesse or flair whatsoever. Of course the likes of Seri and Schurrle don't look good playing this style of football; that's not what why they were recruited and it's not the way they are used to playing!

We are expecting a Formula One car to perform on crossply tyres and red diesel and it has already led to disaster. I have had two (for a while three) season tickets this time around for 25 years but I regret to say this is the last year I will invest until the Khan's sell up to someone who knows about football. In fact the way I feel right now I cannot see me attending another game this season (I have already vowed not to attend another away game).

Before those who will inevitably come out and say I must support Fulham in their hour of need; this is not the Fulham that I grew up supporting and this is not the kind of football I want to watch. We have all seen some bad times at Fulham from the Clay/Muddyman years to the joke that was 2013 to 2016 but I can say without fear of a second thought that this is the worst era in my Fulham history.

Sacking Slavisa was inevitable after our start to the season I guess but at least bring in a Manager who knows how to use the tools at his disposal in a creative way not a kick and run merchant! Ranieri should do the decent thing and admit defeat and leave us now to our inevitable demise. We should then bring in a young up and coming manager from within the club or from the lower leagues and rebuild over the next five to ten years.

RIP Fulham

MST has been a true supporter for 25 years, 20 plus years longer than the Khans. The latter have really buggered us up; have no idea of football which has been amply demonstrated. I'm fed up with that sinking feeling after every game and in spite of spending £100 million (was it really that much?) we are clearly beyond saving. We cannot attract (or pay for) half decent players; CR will go in May, so why not make a change now and get a younger man in for the rebuilding job next season. I watch the EPL games at home but will not be watching FFC again this season. I agree 100% with MST and suggest just 2 options. People power - stop going to the cottage. This is not likely to upset a billionaire so let's hope the F.A., police or ano can establish wrongdoing that might show the owners to be unfit for the role.

Just to clarify; although I have had season tickets home and away this time around (last 25 years) before that you didn't need season tickets but I did have a season ticket (just for me) in the 70's and early 80's.

COJ yes I do see this as worse than those days and I was on that beat up old supporters club minibus with no heating and a hole in the floor to Carlisle on a cold and misty day with nothing but a silk scarf for warmth however, there was always optimism in those days and the supporters counted because we could get involved but this time around we are powerless to do anything but watch our club being destroyed by people who are not doing it in a sinister way (Clay-esque) but because they have not got a clue how to run an English football club.

I don't expect everyone to feel the way I do and I know that some will point back to the dark days of a club very nearly called Fulham Park Rangers but there was solidarity among fans and a general feeling that we could change our destiny (and we did) but I do not see how we can effect was it happening now.

Sad but true unfortunately :0(((

Only 4 winnable home matches left: Brighton, Everton, Newcastle and Cardiff. Figure we get 10 points there. Maybe 1 more point from the home matches against the big boys. 14 current points + 11 at home = 25. If we can win 4 away matches, I think we can stay up with 37 points. Those include West Ham, Palace, Southampton, Watford, Bournemouth, Leicester, and Wolves. I still think we have the talent to beat any of those teams. Not sure if we have the right manager or recruitment team. But it’s still possible! COYW!

That a lot a lot of assuming there. Firstly we need 6 points at present just to get out of the bottom 3. and with a GD of -29. AND assuming Saints and Cardiff and Newcastle ALL loose their next 2 games. I didn't see enough of the fight needed yesterday to say we will get out of bottom three. To many times Burnley beat us to the ball, and going forward if we are basing our tactics on counter attacking we don't have the players, too slow in build up. But we go again and live in hope that the January window will produce an ace.

The championship is so much more fun. Beyond the owners who cares. Let’s watch some good football, unpredictable games and young talent. If we stay up it’s just another season of struggle and rubbish kick off times. Not a fan friendly league.

I will welcome being back in the Championship, as like other supporters on this forum, the Premier League is not an enjoyable experience, and I think that we should leave it to the big money grabbing teams, and we can watch and snigger from afar. Only about six of the same teams can ever win the title or a place in the top four, and it becomes very boring, while in the Championship any team can battle it out for a top six place every season. From what I have seen on the TV, the Championship is far more entertaining as a competition, and we will always be good enough to be one of the front runners in this Division, winning more games than losing, and hopefully missing out on promotion for at least two or three more seasons.

Phil, how much fun was the Championship under Kit, when we were staring ANOTHER relegation in the face? It was fun under Slav, with the best midfield in the division and some smart loan signings and homegrown talent in Sess and Betts. A lot had to go right. QPR and Leeds and Wigan and Portsmouth and a lot of clubs our size go down and then go down again. There is no reason we can’t be like Everton, perennially top 10, occasional Europa League— in other words, what Roy built us into before he left. His last season (and the caretaker season of Hughes with Roy’s side)...that’s my ambition for us. We need to be dreaming of more European nights against Juve, not derbies vs Millwall and Brentford. It can be done, and had MAF not been looking to sell, we might’ve invested the Dempsey and Dembele money from Spurs and used it to solidify our status. Instead we bought mercenaries and flair players (as we did this past summer). This club belongs in the Europa League, not the Championship. COYW!

Len just calls every CFC fan a racist - it's what he does.

The reason I deleted it and the thread after it wasn't due to racism it was because it was just a CFC fan trolling our board. Same as Care Free or whatever they call themselves. Takes up valuable space from genuine FFC fan's posts that just move further down the board and are not read.

And I'm not just talking about our chances as the Championship beckons again. I'm talking about the fact I only got back from Burnley at 2:30pm today. Even getting to Hammersmith B'way by 10:20 pm last night, I had to stay in London (Hounslow). Got up to get the 08:35 train from Hounslow....cancelled, bext train 09:09 to Clapham Junction. then aover an hour on a replacement bus via Selhurst Park to East Croydon Station. A 35 min wait there. only to the only train going anywhere near Chichester (my local Station) is the Littlehampton train...via Hove. Get to Littlehampton only for another 45 min replacement bus to Chi. Any other similar experiences. This is only the 4th time I've used coach in twenty years and early 70's.Now go by car/train only train would have taken 5 hours yesterday....with you guest it 2 chances and a replacement bus service. AS for the match in my own humble opinion bring in Nigel Pearson now someone who knows what a dog fight is and has already save Leicester. All the names I've seen so far associated with this (paper talk of course) are ALL 30+ for what its worth.

Blimey Fred. You are a true Fulham supporter from the old school. Never mind the train delays and the coach hold-ups, we can all cope with that, but to stay overnight in Hounslow ! There's dedication for you. While on the subject here's a travellers tip. Some hookers will let you stay the night for an extra ton, if business is quiet, and breakfast thrown in. What more could you ask for, although you may not get much sleep.

Yes Freddie, now we see a name, Nigel Pearson, worth pursuing. I think he already turned us down due to the transfer policy that excluded manager's input. FFC RIP.

Doc' you need a holiday! AK is the best none scoring striker we have at our disposal at the moment. Schurrle is a bit too wimpy and our defence is Laurel and Hardy. We might as well give it a good go by adding some pace into the mix on Sunday. Also push up Ryan Sess up the wing and include Tom Cairney. Vietto cannot hit a banjo in front of him, so why not Kabano? If we create more comedy, so be it, we are Fulham after all. We are used to it now so get used to it folks!!!

At least we are breaking records, letting in goals ,first to lose by two own goals since 2003, verbals with the owners son, wonder who the fan was? stand up mst and we will applaud you !.Reading through some old ffc books , very old! what struck me was that no one at Fulham ever asked for a transfer, mitten Haynes hill stevens mullery Langley,tosh macedo, all gamely carried on regardless, not forgetting robson and cohen ,when we sold it was on account of being poor and hard up and trinder needed a new coat. Even the fact most earned same money could have been the reason ,no one wanted to better them selves,do I wish for those days back ? bloody right I do, oh for a mitten flicking a corner kick along the underside of the cross bar and the poor bloody keeper ending up in the net holding the ball, yep that was football I enjoyed.

Reminds of the song "Those were the days". but they are never coming back. There is no such thing as loyalty anymore to any club, even the likes of Liverpool. Man United or Arsenal, so what chance have we got of retaining any of our so called better players when, and it is a when, not if, we return to the Championship. I am not enjoying one moment of the Premier League, and I must admit to being quite jealous when I see teams like Bournemouth, Brighton, West Ham and Palace, who are no better off than we are, doing so well on a limited budget. When I watch these teams, we seem light years away from them, which is absolutely ridiculous. Who is to blame, I really don't know, but I am fast falling out of love with Fulham FC, and I never ever thought that I would say that.

Albert, until Trinder decided to pay Haynes some real (?) money there was the hundred quid a week salary cap. Difficult to better yourself with that concrete ceiling. There was also a precedent of club loyalty, now gone with the wind. Stay warm amigo.

Is it me. With Jokanovic’s team, even when we lost 5-6 in a row, I haven’t lost the believe that we could be one game away from turning it around and have the ability to win 3-4 games on the bounce! With the current team and the way we play, I just don’t have that believe anymore!! I can’t get my head to believe we have a chance to even get a point of Spurs but I really believed we had a chance to beating them earlier in the season. It’s really sad I don’t have that BELIEVE at the moment! I hope I am alone or in a minority otherwise I think we are doomed!
Replies
Sorry pal but we never had a snowball in hells chance of getting a point from Spurs and sadly it will be the same when we next meet. They have several World class players and are playing as well as anyone in the Premier. It could still be possible to avoid the drop IF and its a big IF we can secure two or three GOOD signings before the end of the month. We wait with baited breath !!

So, a few media outlets are reporting that Babel might join on a loan until the end of the season. Certainly not the “character” type of guy that we need but when his head’s to it, he can be quality. Been playing for the Netherlands recently again, too, so maybe he is up for it again but I honestly have my doubts... After yday’s first half display, more than ever I feel like we need composed guys with experience and a feeling for timing and when to hold the ball and when to slow things down, etc., a bunch of pros, one per line. The way a team like Burnley put us under pressure for the next 25mins after our opener is unacceptable. No one has a clue in that backline, but out midfielders aren’t helping either.
Replies
Ream played a better second half as he was allowed to go forward. Mawson and Ream would be an effective combo if Mawson is ever fit and we play four across the back. Nobody in the midfield seems to know what's expected though and Mitro ends up deep playing the linkup role with little or no support up front. Must say, if he wasn't such a good striker he'd make a good midfield general.
