Wonder how many accadamy kids will make it?, keep reading about how good they are and apparently are giants!!!,so looking at the present set up , I see Woodrow, sess, who are with us at present,roberts and dembele we got sod all out of , looking back sean davis was one of the few I recall who made it through the accadamy,which makes you think what the point of them we dont make any thing from them ,emagine being at Fulham from aged 14 then still in under 23s in your early 20s, you have been kept on but cant get a game in the first team or even in the squad.So just what are we getting out of our accadamy?. Read of countless players all knocking on the door but all fall on deaf ears and we go for loans and cheap buys.Just the same for cfc just sign them up long contract hope they do ok then sell on, cant work out why so few make it.

Blimey Bish, I know we're all entitled to our own view but sometimes, I wonder why you put yourself through the agony of supporting Fulham. It surely can't be that bad. We all find displeasure in things we're unhappy with but you seem to just look for things to complain about which I would add, are invariably outside of the manager or owners control. In this day and age if a player wants out there's nothing anyone can do about it. As I see it we've kept Sessingnon and Edun and the likes of De la Torre, Adeniran, Williams and Adebaye, or don't they qualify as youngsters in your book. Rogers and Dembele wanted to go, their choice, don't think they were pushed out for a quid or two. As it stands we've lost one regular first team player, Malone who will be a real miss. The rest of the departees were either not up to speed or marginal at best, and that includes LVC. The new signings will I hope be as successful as last year's intake, who were so roundly written off by many on here. Messrs Khan, Kline and Jokanovic have done brilliantly, in getting them in the first place and now retaining them. We are a solid, sensible setup moving in the right direction. Despite all of the clap trap posted on here I think more supporters than not will agree that we are in an unbelievable situation, unimaginable just a year ago. Optimism is a wonderful thing, come on be positive and enjoy yourself:))

Bish, it would be interesting to know how it breaks down financially as to whether or not the academy set-up is beneficial/ profitable for the club. With Roberts having gone for £12 million and Sessegnon, should he continue to improve as his current trajectory suggests, possibly worth at least twice that, I'd imagine that would more than cover the costs of the emerging talent programme at our academy for years to come, but as I have no figures to reference, it's simply conjecture on my part. As for the talent knocking on the door and being ignored, I think it's safe to say that we have have given the likes of Williams, Woodrow, Dembele, Roberts, Grimmer, LVC and, most recently, Sessegnon the chance to shine. Two have moved on to bigger clubs and one is, for me, the most exciting home-grown prospect I've ever seen at the club.

I read a few days ago on this site that it is obvious that you have a passion for your club Bish If your disposition of slagging the cub off at every given moment is passion for your club then I'd hate to see you when you're really peeved. If I were you mate I'd give up Fulham and join the local bridge club - you'd likely enjoy yourself more. PS Roberts went for £12m plus add ons, he didn't leave for nothing.

MST you are going to have to allow me the liberty of having described Bish's passion for the club in one of its several definitions. As well as avid enthusiasm (positive), it can also mean barely containable emotion, including anger and intense frustration. Clearly Bish has passion for his club, just not the sort I'd want to shorten my life with!

How many players may we loan from one club? I thought clubs were limited to 2, following stroke pulled by Watford. Piazon, Kallas Kennedy is this possible?

Rumour has it Fulham FC are first in line to loan Kenedy from Chelsea for the coming season/ Despite his racist twitter rant and being sent home from their Asian tour. Well, we are playing Millwall this season, so we are going to need some players for them to rant against because they can't play football. He has just made three appearances for Chelsea's first team and spent most of last season on loan at Watford.

Chelsea's Tomas Kalas set to rejoin Fulham on loan - sources Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Email comment 8:16 PM BST Peter O'Rourke Mike Egerton/PA Archive/Press Association Images Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas is set to rejoin Fulham on loan, sources close to both clubs have told ESPN FC. Kalas is currently away with Chelsea on their preseason tour of Asia, but the defender is expected to go out on loan when they return to England next week. A number of clubs, including Hull City have enquired about signing Kalas, but Fulham are confident of bringing the Czech Republic defender back to Craven Cottage. Kalas spent last season on loan at Fulham and was a mainstay in Slavisa Jokanovic's side as they reached the Championship playoffs only to lose to Reading. Fulham have been keen on re-signing Kalas and they have remained in talks about a possible season-long loan deal since the end of last season. The 24-year-old has also been open about returning to Fulham and a deal is expected to be sealed as early as next week. Kalas signed for Chelsea in 2010 but has been sent away on five separate loan deals, and has played just two games for the Blues, and it seems he will again spend next season away from Stamford Bridge.

So... we sell,sell,sell & loan,loan,loan. This is good ? We also have taken on some cheaps, including rescuing Djalo from a donkey sanctuary. What great progress & ambition !! Khan could have bought Kalas if he'd have matched Hull's offer, so please no rubbish about how he was only available for loan. Please also don't anyone spout c**p about FFP, We were well in credit on that ages ago. I just don't get Khan, he could easily get this club back in the prem & coin it in, even if we were only there for 1 season ? We've seen how he loves getting money & hates spending it. He makes no sense to me ?
posted by Morney (Guest) - Wednesday 26th July 2017, 2:41 AM
 
Morney, weeks ago Kalas renewed his contract with Chelsea, which from a player's perspective is security, and from the club's perspective is an opportunity for Kalas to polish his game at a promotion-seeking club like us. I would see the one year loan deal, if it happens, is good for us as he knows our game and will fit in from the off.
posted by stephen terry (Guest) - Wednesday 26th July 2017, 5:47 AM
 
Even though Kalas figured heavily in our defeat to Reading, he was the glue to our defense all of last year. Whenever he was out, we were horrible. For my money, Kalas is the KEY summer signing, more important than a striker. We scored more than enough goals to be top 2 last year. The problem was our defense. Hopefully the back four of Fredericks-Kalas-Ream-Sess will gel enough this year to get some more clean sheats.
posted by Drago (Guest) - Wednesday 26th July 2017, 7:44 AM
 
Stephen - We could have bought Kalas if we'd have matched Hulls offer when Chelski were selling him. He said he wanted to come to us, which stopped his sale to Hull. We sell out, loan in & don't build for the future. Why do we do that ?
posted by Morney (Guest) - Wednesday 26th July 2017, 3:06 PM
 
Most Championship clubs loan in sell out because they know they will need to rebuild the squad if they manage to get promoted so it makes good business sense!

I was thinking of a more high profile player like in the past. You know , your Beardsley , Berbatov or Best. But saying that , I like that Maddison kid. He's strong , knows where the goal is and can deliver a ball too. A great left foot. I'd sign him at the drop of a hat.

Being a Brighton season ticket holder now, as well as my first love Fulham, and living in the area, I obviously know quite a lot of Brighton fans, and they are gob smacked that Norwood has joined Fulham, as they say that he would have been well at home in the Premier League, and that he is a really good player and team man. Maybe then, that their loss, is our gain.

Why are we waiting on this turncoat Rolan??? He is obviously waiting on any prem club to bend to his demands! Is he good enough for the prem? only time will tell. I hope the fulham hierarchy abolish their age 3o no go rule so that we can welcome Cameron Jerome on board! I have good reasons why Cameron Jerome / Slavisa/ plan B will work out for Fulham. We have a very good attacking set up that will work to jeromes advantage and get fulham lots of goals! I honestly think that the wizardry of Johansen/piazon/Cairney/Sess/Aluko/ and co will aid Jerome immensely.Birminghan did not have those type of players to assist him. I also think that Jerome would easily bag 20 odd goals for us in the championship, and he will be more than useful if we get to the premiership, with his experience. Obviously, we would need to invest again to aid him. Look at Lukaku? for utd! Lukaku will bag a lot of goals because of the assist around him,he cannot fail to get goals for utd. For Everton lukaku bagged a lot of goals against the lesser teams,but with better players around him at utd, he will get more goals. Apparently this is our last season that we receive para shoot payments? so we need to push on and try to get prem football again, and this season is as good a time to be more assertive in our quest for that promotion. I trust Slavis's judgement on Cameron Jerome, and i think it is about time the board give Slavia a pick of players by his own judgement. I relent and agree that klines stats system will pick a few good un's, and some bad ones too. Please let Slavisa pick one or 2 players to his liking, and i think we will have a happy and content ship that will sail into the premeirship on a crest of a wave!!!!!

Apart from Leeds, Wolves and Middlesbrough none of the other championship clubs have strengthened on paper. So if we improve on last year by just a little bit, we should be In a good position. My concern is other clubs will be more tactical when they us and adopt the Reading tactic, which clearly worked. So I agree we are still in a good position but it would be a great bonus to get a striker and a defender, so we have more options.

John, Reading's goalie played a blinder in the second leg. we created chances and didn't put them away but the luck was not on our side that night with a disputable penalty as well. 22 shots is not exactly stopping us playing.

All this talk about getting a new striker overlooks the fact that we were among the top scorers in the division last season, and that despite being worse at penalties than Diana Ross. What we really need is to replace Scott Parker with a Danny Murphy style playmaker. That said, I wouldn't mind a tall centre forward target man (no, not Matt Smith) to give us a plan B.
posted by The Historian (Guest) - Tuesday 25th July 2017, 10:11 AM
 
We don't know if Rolan is a good enough player for the premiership. From what I have seen on you tube he is certainly a championship player. Of course, what we all know, Jerome isn't a premiership player, never has been and never will be. As I said in a previous post, let SJ chose the players he wants.

The reading tactic being synical fouling aided by the most incompetent ref I saw last year and that's saying something !!! Timewasting which started from the kick of and allowed to continue by this moron !!! If we had a proper ref in charge we would have won ( no wonder they wanted him for the second leg should have won that also penalty was handled by reading player before our one !!!! Don't mind if teams adopt them tactics next year against us reckon we can overcome them going to be an interesting year

It is getting very tiresome reading all the moaning on here. Most of the team is settled and I am thrilled we don't really need to bring loads of players in and we will start with the core of last year's team. Assuming we do go up, which i think we will, what is the point of bringing in too many journeyman championship players who we know will not cut it in the premiership. I think it makes a lot of sense to play with a 3 man defence to get more out of the 2 Ryans. So at the moment thatis Odoi , Ream and one of Madl or Djalo. So back up needed there, hopefully Kalas or similar. Of course Odoi can cover for either of the 2 Ryans. MacDonald Cairney and Johanssen in midfield with Norwood, Piazon and Cisse as back up. Aluko, Ayite and Woodrow/Jerome with Kebano as back up and may be one more. Betinelli in goal plus a back up. So please please tell me someone with 3 in the bag and may be 3 more needed to bolster up the squad fir injuries/suspensions what the panic is all about. Would you prefer to go back to the first 3 months of last season when it took 3 months to find out what our best team was. We did what we did despite all the problems with Button and Martin. I am very optimistic. There is no way we were ready to go up this year even though we were the best team in the play offs. My dream scenario is that the same team moves to another level with another year playing together so we only need 2 or 3 mega signings not building a whole new team like Huddersfield are trying to do now, especially as the 'kids are also developing and will be one year older. With the kids it is a question of balance of youth and experience and bringing them in to a settled side which we can now do. And that has not exactly not worked out badly for Tottenham or Everton has it?

Talk about running our club on a shoestring, I call it ruining our club for the lack of any investment! Once we had half the Northern Ireland international side playing for us...now we have to beg to borrow a bit part player from Brighton & Hove Albion who didn't even have a stadium at that time! This lad from West Ham, he's hardly Moussa Demebele. I cannot see him as any better than our Caudrey Woodrow who had to go to Burton Albion last year to get a game and scored some spectacular goals while he was there. We need signing to this club who are permanent (if there is such a thing today) who will raise the quality of our play because we have lost quite a few quality players already. Never mind we are promised some signings later this week. So that's alright them.
Replies
Rich, we have only lost one player who got anywhere near the first team. When we had half the Northern Ireland Squad (as you put it) we nearly got relegated and Sanchez was fired. Lastly why does nobody on this board understand FINACIAL FAIR PLAY!

A club in the Championship can only spend £6m more than its net profit or £13m more than its net profit if the Chairman makes a financial contribution. If you assume that FFC filled the ground week in week out (which we don't) at an average seat price of £35 (which in fact is probably lower) then we would only turnover £21m per season on gate receipts without cup games. TURNOVER NOT PROFIT. Assume we treble that with sponsorship, TV money and merchandise (which I very much doubt), that would give FFC a turnover of £63m (absolute maximum and it probably far less). Once you deduct running costs, variable overheads, fixed overheads, write down of assets, salaries and taxes I doubt we have enough left for toilet paper.

What that means is that we have to sell players before we can buy them and we also have to rely on loan signings.

Before you comment on Newcastle, etc. and how much they spend, FFP does not come into play if you are promoted back to the Prem in your first season out of it - that's how Rangers got away with it and we ended up with a transfer embargo.

When all is said and done, my down and dirty calculation almost certainly way overstates our wealth as a club and it needs to be understood that Khan cannot just go out and open his cheque book whether we would all like that or not.

Face facts - clubs like Fulham have to live to their means and I think our club does very well on a shoestring budget.

Rant over!

Now you surely know MST that "net profit" can be manipulated to make it pretty much anything you want it to be. Ask any accountant. It's why you would never contemplate any deal which involved a percentage of net profit as payment. Just one facet of FFP, the totality of which is unbelievably biased towards the big clubs. Throw the TV money into the EPL mix and you have, in effect, the dissolution of English and Welsh football. The entire league structure needs a complete overhaul with the top six in the EPL joining a European super league and the remaining divisions rebalanced to reduce the number of midweek games, a totally unfair imposition on the working fans who can't make the journey. If the FA had any long term strategy for the game they would be floating ideas to gain input and acceptance, but I don't see any evidence of that. Presumably they are, in one way or another, sucking on the same TV revenue teat as the rest of the EPL. Until that changes small clubs like Fulham will continue to be penalised to the extent that promotion, despite the odds, becomes a question of "be careful what you wish for".

Novel how this board works (or doesn't). MST, you can reduce net profit in many legal ways, although in the main you're just kicking the can down the road. Sometimes, this can be very advantageous. Anyhow, this is not a tax forum so I apologize for bringing it up.
posted by The Arizonan - Monday 24th July 2017, 10:00 PM
 
To spend more we would need to increase our net profit not reduce it and I'd love to meet an accountant who can do that without the additional turnover because operational costs cannot be erased.

An unusual situation to be sure, but capital expenditure and debt restructuring are two areas where "adjustments" can be made. You're right though in that the result may not be worth the effort. As I said, this isn't a tax forum.

1. Khan, Kline and Jokanovic did a fantastic job for us last season and we bettered most fan's expectations (by far) in the transfer market and on the pitch so why have some people suddenly lost faith in the transfer policy?

2. We are linked with some very good players and have secured the medium term future of some even better players. Even Jokanovic said he expects signings this week (see my prediction below).

3. It's stopped raining and the sun has come out which should improve the miserable disposition of some people on this board if nothing else ;-)). Only kidding ;-).

So there is clearly a divide on this board between those who are happy with the way we do business in the transfer windows and those that aren't and I think it's clear on which side I stand so I thought I'd make a prediction on players coming in before the season starts (maybe even this week):

Ojo from Liverpool]
Norwood from Brighton
Obita from Reading
A N Other from somewhere that none of us expected or read about in the press
Rolan from Bordeaux before the window closes
Kalas from Chelsea before the window closes

If these signings do happen, those that are unhappy with our transfer policy will no doubt not be happy that most of them are loanees.

...is not easy for any Championship club, mainly because players who rise above the mediocre and who are targeted, prefer to join EPL clubs or seek different challenges and possibly higher wages elsewhere. Apart from the fact that this league is a hard fought physical battle that would test even the strongest of players. As such, I applaud Jok's style of play that does mitigate the burden placed on players week in and week out. However, if we are aiming for promotion this season, we MUST strengthen our squad, particularly to shore up our defensive cover, and recruiting at least one seasoned striker capable of scoring goals on a regular basis, even if he's over 28. That is crucial as to whether we will succeed. It really is as simple and as difficult as that.

Another great interview with him on the website. Speaks his mind and says what he wants. It seems to me (in my opinion) he is talking about the lack of depth in the squad and how we need 'to support' the key players we have by bringing in new signings. Also clearly states that it's the board dealing with it and hopefully they will be addding to strengthen the squad. Either he knows something or it's a dig about how desperate he is and frustrated about the lack of signings. Who knows with our club?

Do you honestly think that Jokanovic has no say in signings whatsoever? Of course he does and he has said this in interviews and so has Khan. Funny how some people take the negative from an interview. What I read is that Slavisa has identified several players who have met the stats test and the Board will be working hard to bring them in this coming week. Let's hope we get them over the line to compliment the great squad (albeit thin) we already have.

Maybe I'm too much of an optimist but I do not read the interview as a negative. Opening statement, the tour was difficult due to lack of players, he countered that argument by saying he expects the club to bring in players to give the squad the depth. His final comment,he expects the team to be competitive next season. Not sure where I read a disillusioned or frustrated manager ?

MST yes SJ has no input into the transfers what so ever! He may talk to Kline about the positions he wants players to fill but that's about it. When have you ever heard SJ in an interview with a new signing stating that he is pleased to have brought this player to the club and it is someone he has been chasing for a while? Never. In fact last January he said about our signings "I have been these players and have to look into how I can fit them into the squad" Both have left after loan spells with no interest to resign. Did anyone even see Petsos in the squad let alone play. Looking at the transfers so far (to our very small squad) we've signed Cisse, Djalo and players out Malone, Jozabed, Stearman, Tunnicliffe, Joronen, Cole, Grimmer, Burgess, LVC, Cyriac, Petsos and Parker retired (please don't go on about Ryan S, Edun and Cairney. They were already FFC players). That's 2 in and 12 out although apart from Malone I totally agree but we have a lot of gaps to fill and the season is fast approaching. No wonder SJ sounds a bit fed up!

Terry your arguments are not thought through. Where do you think the money to buy new players is coming from if we don't sell (and we sold at a profit)? Why did Jokanovic say he could stay at FFC for 10 years if he is unhappy with the system? I agree that our squad is thin but I can't agree with anything else you write. You doom and gloom merchants were saying exactly the same thing this time last year yet look at what happened. I expect to see copious amounts of egg on yours and the think alike's faces when the season starts and finishes. Me, I'm happy to see what we've done in this window so far and I expect to be happy with further business before the season starts and before the window closes.

There wasn't one B@H player impressed me when we played them last season I know we lost away and home but frankly we were all over them both matches they did have big bruisers at the centre of their defence so it wasn't easy for FFC especially when Martin went on strike for the home match

Will have to disagree FFC Supporter. I think we lacked cover in midfield for Johansen and Cairney, they looked tired at the end of last season. I see Norwood as being a decent option to provide cover and rotate in when we need to give others a rest. As for not being good enough for FFC he started something like 20 games in a team which got comfortably promoted. Piazon played roughly the same number of games for us last year but I think he is a different type of player and to get promoted you need a deep squad. All in all not overly excited by the signing but (depending on the price) would happily see him come in to the squad

MST called me sir!!, he loves me!!!!,not interested in what you think about FFC or me its always one sided us wrong you right, however again I will ask how am I wrong????? its like a sewage plant has opened outside the ground and they all walk by, Kalas!! seem he wants championship football with besikas and is talking terms so a few oiks are telling us, lets see us compete with them , all these players seem to want the earth before proving anything, Zuma, cant get in cfc team signs 4 year contract with cfc then stoke pay 7 million for one season loan, god knows who khan and company will encourage into the cottage with that kind of mentality.Also wondering how long before Edun aged 19 actually gets to be first teamer? 19 seems a good age now for to blossom,expect him blooded as a regular in about 3 years if we still got him .

Think if you read below Bish there are a few people with whom I hold similar views. I have no issue with your views either - you're entitled to them. My only problem is that every post you make (without exception) is negative towards FFC. It would be nice to see you balance your negativity with some positive posts now and again because it seems to me that you can't stand the club or its way of doing business and I know if I felt like you I'd support another team or give up on football altogether.

just imagine what everyone would be saying if we were still where we were last year. Heaven forbid.these recent posts of doom, a lot of which make painful reading. Been going for 44 years and I am so looking forward to next season whatever happens on the transfer market. I am prepared to take whatever comes our way. We were not ready last year. 10 decent teams going for 3 slots. The core of our team still here. A very decent coaching team who improves every player. The decline of the last 3 years of the premiership were so painful culminating in Stoke away when Mo was winding down his interest in the club, that is the one place i do not want to return.

So another !star has binned us! a I keep saying ,why are pub players backing out of any deals at Fulham , and before MST starts another greek tragedy about how we kept sess and cairney , we appear to have 2 keepers our manager don't know who to play , both are league 1 keepers, every soddin name that is spoken about us and players ends the same no thanks!. So whats the problem 3weeks till k/o, 5 till window shuts,and no one seems to want to come here ,one of best grounds, In best part of London, so come all you don't worry brigade ,explain whats the problem??? we have dumped Malone now aluka on way out,my money is on S/J walking unless some one arrives soon, the black clouds are rumbling over sw6.Teams are building even if small, you need squad players to call on we cant find those , just what is khan paying these guys.?

Am worried! Very worried! Extremely worried! But who do you blame? Yes, the club to an extend but the market is crazy and difficult (as I explained a couple of days ago)l! Name a club in the championship without the same problem?? Name a club without this problem! But ultimately Khan and co are judged by the results - so far, at best a b minus! Not good enough for a promotion! Solution is to close the transfer window end of July to stop this stupid poker game with transfers.

Most supporters mistrust Khan's motives & methods ( although he has a large dedicated bunch of fans especially on this forum ) & this is the reason for all our anxieties.

MAF was into the club, heart and soul. Shahid Khan however sees it as nothing more than a business project. Like his failing Jacksonville Jaguars, The Whites will end up in the same gutter. American owners, all they do is turn football clubs to sh*to, there's a lot of "previous" to be fair. Their hearts are never really "in it", just a business venture really, and one that has a history of failing. When you also own an NFL or Baseball outfit, we know who's gonna be second preference! Sell up mate, and take that prick Kline with ya.

MAF is history, no point hankering after those old times. It's difficult to recall any club whose chairman is appreciated by fans (apart from Steve Gibson at Boro possibly, and the guy who owns Forest Green Rovers). The Jack Walker style of chairman is long gone, RIP. So perhaps we're in danger of looking for a problem where there isn't one. Of course things aren't perfect, we'd all like to see more money being spent on players, but like it or not, FFC is a business. And after the sucesses of last season my glass is looking half full, as opposed to Ozzymark's half-empty.

Moreline, as much as I love you, I cannot agree with you. Khan only really took the reigns on transfers last season and the players he brought in (with perhaps the odd exception) were outstanding for us.

I also remember Jokanovic banging on about midfield players in the January window when the club had a plethora and us fans wanted a CF. As it happens Jokanovic's style of play (we found out) lends itself more to several attacking options all interchanging and confusing the opposition rather than one central focus and it worked really well when it finally clicked. So we all got that wrong didn't we?

I still say keep calm, stay patient and see what Santa brings us because neither Khan nor Jokanovic have let us down yet and I'm sure they know what we need and have a plan to get it.

Keep the faith - COYW!

The first time I went to The Cottage was in 1956. I now live in Spain and have done so for the last 10 years. My highlight as a Fulham supporter was seeing The Maestro at his very best. The current team play football of which I approve. I was not too disappointed we did not gain promotion to The Premier league last season. It was patently obvious we were not ready. We have played 2 P/l teams in friendliest and lost them both. I fundamentally disagree with the play off system and passionately believe The Manager should buy and sell players.

MST I like the way you always look on the positive side of Fulham. But I don't like the way nothing seems to be going on! We don't know jack Sh1t about what's going on in our club. I would have thought/hoped we would've had a CF and a CH in place by now. So the club could be jelling ready for the start of the season. But what would I know?… I'm always reading the comments,but don't always post as most of you cover my feelings. And I don't see a point in repeating the same thing over and over again. We need another keeper and I'm still not happy with our defence. Time is running out… don't just bring in the dross that no one wants… I'm still praying that we hit the ground running. But not sure with the way we are look at the moment, that is possible… looking forward to be proven wrong! Onwards and Upwards . We live to Dream… COYW

I know what I am about to write is against the grain of the majority on this board and I expect to be lambasted but here goes in any case:

I can't believe how many people are calling out our club for the lack of decent signings when we are still only three weeks into a nine week transfer window. So far we have signed one player who looks to be half decent, another who looks unfit but time will tell if he is good enough, secured the medium term future of Ryan Sessignon and Tom Cairney and brought Lucas Piazon back on loan. We have let one (half decent) player go in Malone and still have cover for him through Sess and Odoi. All the other players who have left got nowhere near the first team.

In reality, much more than the nucleus of the squad that we raved about and made the play-offs last season is still there and we have strengthened in terms of players and contracts.

Kalas was beyond our reach until he signed a contract with Chelsea and I don't see him training with Hull so that chapter is not closed yet. Everything in the press about Rolan is pure speculation and there are no quotes whatsoever from Fulham, the player or his agent so none of us knows what is going on there (good or bad). Betts has agreed to sign a new contract and that maybe to increase his value for sale - who knows.

Long and short, NOBODY on this board knows jack about what Fulham are doing in the transfer market and we have a long history of not doing business in public. So why not get behind the team and the club and act like supporters instead of spoilt kids who didn't get what they wanted for Christmas when it's still only Easter!

Well, Rolan does not want to join (Bordeaux are not letting him train with the team at this moment https://m.lequipe.fr/Football/Actualites/Bordeaux-diego-rolan-ecarte-apres-avoir-refuse-fulham/819659) and we have a 17-year old kid and a second choice right-back to replace our goal-scoring full-back from last season, who happened to fit Jokanovic's style perfectly. I think it's fair to say that we need a left-back, a 9 (preferrably not Rolan), Kalas / quality starting centre-back, another centre-half depending on Sigurdsson's future and a keeper (Button cost us too many points last year). Also, Cairney was healthy the whome tine last season. Who plays in his role if he's out? So, yeah, I can understand the frustrations to an extent but I am still OK with our business so far, as long as we get a decent 9 and a centre back inthe next week.

Well said MST disappointed to see Malone leave but on the whole things are shaping up nicely Roland is not the only centre forward in the world and I am sure if the deal breaks down we will have various options Hopefully Kalas will be re-joining but failing that I am sure the club have a back up plan I totally agree with the don't panic policy and look forward to a decent season ahead

Marco, I don't give two hoots about Rolan and your link is still only press conjecture with no quotes of substance. So if he doesn't come then so what? As someone else put it, he is hardly prolific and there are plenty of other CFs to go after.

If you knew Odoi well enough you'd know that his preferred position is actually left back (even though he is right footed) and he is only second choice right back because he is behind an outstanding young player in Ryan Fredericks - not because he is no good.

Nobody is arguing about what we all think we need and don't need to compliment and strengthen the current squad; my post was about the people who continually complain and slag the club off because we haven't completed our transfer business three weeks into the transfer window opening and I stand by that.

Mst I enjoy your sensible considered posts but we need a good start to the new season otherwise we will be playing catch up like last season we should be nearing a completed squad so they can train ,play together and get used to each other also I don't go along with Odoi as a left back we need left footers in that position Ream and Malone natural left footers gave us a good balance down the left both defensively and offensively. Fingers crossed our excellent manager will have the players we wants sooner rather than later . Coyw's

Think your assessment is fair and sensible MST. I'm pretty certain that JS tried to talk Malone into staying and you can'tblame the player for wanting to play at a higher level and God forbid getting paid more for the privilege. Mind I'm still really disappointed we lost him, that's just how it is. I think Kalas is a big wish for most on here and were he to sign on the dotted, a lot of the moaning and carping would subside. I know I'd feel a lot more comfortable. Would be even better than hearing that Buffoon had hung up his gloves.

Two half decent players mate, you forgot LVC.

For me LVC had one very decent half season three years ago but never returned to the potential he showed prior to his injury so I'm afraid I don't include him in my analogy. Sorry.

Fair enough but i believe he will be making a big impression in the near future, and i wish him well.

Please google West Ham v Fulham on youtube and watch the highlights of today's game. You must watch Button for the 2nd goal. He is an absolute clown! It's so funny he must be!

Jesus, thought he was a liability last season, but that takes the biscuit.

As much as I agree about button being a clown, that was a clear foul on him

I thought Bettinelli was our no1 keeper he played well last season why so much speculation ? Button like Sigurdsson can be sold asap , Maybe with hindsight we should have bought back Stockdale someone we never should have sold in the first place another Jol mistake and there were plenty !

Stockdale?? are you having a laugh

I saw it that Buffoon kicked the back of the West Ham players left foot as he got between him and the ball, causing him to trip himself up. Net effect still the same, he gave a goal away, nobody can understand why he was playing and we're all now praying we don't see him on the pitch again:)) By the way, I would agree Stockdale, whilst not top notch, is light years ahead of Buffoon.

That was a classic from Button! I cannot see how that was a foul on Buton in any way, shape or form. If anything it was a foul on Fletcher!

Well at least Bett's is gonna sign a new contract this week.

Up until now, our transfer policy seems in a complete mess. Without a really good keeper and CB, a top 6 spot will not be possible next season. Other clubs seem to be strengthening on a daily basis, and we are lagging behind by miles. Any decent players are being snapped up, and we will be left with an assortment of dregs. I feel so desperately frustrated.

Stock fake being a joke mistake lol magath sold him off had nothing to do with Jol what so ever. Button is just a joke of a goalkeeper and should never wear the shirt again, you would have thought Joka would of realised that after derby away that his was utterly useless

8-2 Chelsea 2-0 down at half time Hammers and I,m just reading about who is leaving, who could leave and who thinks about why they should come here ie Rolan? The latest gossip, Aluko to Reading. I cannot agree more with regard to the Button, Bettinelli situation. Look at our run in and, who was in goal? It appears to be going belly up. It is only a matter of time before Cairney and Sessignon go for, if there is no real ambition? Where does SJ fit in with this apparent like of ambition? Surely, he needs the new talent now, so as to work with and give us a chance for a good start to the season? Not good!!

Don't worry. Their are those on this site that think the club are doing well in the transfer window. To quote 'We've made 3 signings since July 1st???' Someone will make a move for Ryan S with a big offer before the end of the transfer window. He's different class!

Looks like a great player and eden , not sure on the cb scares me a little bit like the donkey we had at the back a few years ago !

The one we had??? We've had loads. Kalas only one worth talking about and we've done nothing to re loan him as yet! Ream had a very strong finish last year but the rest are a waste of time.
posted by Terry (Guest) - Thursday 20th July 2017, 9:59 PM
 
TERRY - How the hell do you what we as a club have done to get Kalas back either on loan or to buy?

You like me like everyone else on here know absolutely nothing about Fulham's transfer dealings until the club announce them

agree with above comments . Just move on , must be plenty of options . In my view we need something different to what we already have .Someone with a bit of muscle and height and can hold up play .

I wouldn't have him at FFC now under any circunstances look what happened when Martin went on strike last year when he didn't want to play for us let the manager sign Jerome Cameron think he wanted him first anyway

I personally don't believe Jerome is good enough for our team ! He's a bit of a heskey in my opinion. I'm sure we've got some lined up just hope it happens quickly .

Move on. There are other strikers out there. No need for another Chris Martin scenario. We need a striker who wants, and is proud, to play for FFC.

I share your sentiment but You don't know if the story is true or not. Even if it is, we sometimes have to swallow our pride if it means we get a class player. Remember only 12 months ago, he was a £12m and rising player. Whatever happened and with his contract running out, we have an opportunity to get him for £5m. If it means a little patience for him to accept he has step down, it's not such a bad thing. Martin was a completely different situation. He's comparing us to another championship team and went on strike - unforgivable! So let's give Rolan a chance before we throw our toys out the pram!! If he decides to come he's not going to come here just for the money - he'd want to impress!

Toss up tonight between watching the friendly vs West Ham, or the T20 cricket at Richmond between Middx and Kent. What sort of team are we likely to put out? Likewise, are West Ham likely to send out a 2nd XI?

Do you actually think you will learn any thing from to nights farce,about 20 subs will go through the motions ,no doubt A-E will be full,stick to crawley, Dartford,and melchester rovers.

Here we go again Bishop with your continual moaning and criticism of Fulham.

Some people just like to watch their team play regardless mate. It's called supporting Fulham!! I don't care how many subs there are, I miss football and I miss Fulham and this is an opportunity to re-bond with both. I'm not looking to learn anything. Blimey!!
posted by MST (Moderator) - Thursday 20th July 2017, 12:26 PM
 
I think for the first time ever I agree with Bishop!

This is a training game nothing more nothing less, most of the players will get a run out in the match and as they have been training hard for the last few days in Austria the game will not reflect on how we play when it comes to the start of the season.

So MST enjoy watching a training session but like Bishop I have better things to do.

Also take the result with a pinch of salt.

What I have learnt Bishop is that I don't moan so much in life these days because before you no it , you've become a miserable old git. For that I thank you. But I will always watch my team at any opportunity. As I would expect most true fans , of any club would.
posted by Dan Gleebals (Guest) - Thursday 20th July 2017, 1:55 PM
 
But ,still why would you pay to watch players arsing about doing sod all as I said 20 subs for sure,let play some one worth watching for Christ sake,Juva, ajax, psg,any one with charisma.
