With season tickets sold out this season and the unlikelihood of staying in this division, I doubt there will be any issues relocating fans from the riverside stand in other parts of the ground. In the unlikely event however, that Fulham stay in the Premier League, I would seriously hope that other season ticket holders do not have to accommodate riverside seaters and that the Putney End will be their destination. I can’t see though, how you can seat 6,000 riversiders in the Putney end and still have room for the mandatory number of away fans for each game.

My guess is that any redevopment will be contingent on us remaining in this division, which is most unlikely. On that note, there is an interesting analysis on Fulham’s woes in today’s Times. Definitely worth reading and certainly adds perspective to Seri’s performances to date.....

Ground improvement starts in May will take two years again putting there money where there mouth is.The moaners won’t like it
Replies
Must admit the Riverside plans look amazing assume that’s what they’re starting actually seems like a good man to take us forward he’s made a few mistakes this season is going to be a testing one I know many supporters aren’t happy but this time last year who would of thought we’d even be in the premier league only need to win around 8 games throw in a few draws plenty to play for.

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

It's not about moaners we are all FFC fans.... The PLAYERS need to look in the mirror,starting with Jean Michaël Seri, typical of the French!! Have a problem go on strike, !!! disgusting. And yes Riverside plans look good.....So long as signs say TK keep out & stop meddling.

The chairman and the manager make the big decisions but honestly those players cross that white line there the only ones who should take the blame. Too many players not delivered for me tom Cairney club captain been a massive disappointment so have the new signings were all Fulham fans and want the best for the club all this city talk all capital investment etc really you can’t be serious
posted by Mike (Guest) - Monday 10th December 2018, 9:17 PM
 
It's not "city talk", it's straightforward business and yes, I am serious, but that's a whole different discussion. By the way, I also think the plans look very good. As to the players, I couldn't agree more. With the exception of Rico and Mitro and probably Odoi the rest have been a massive disappointment and that's down to them. They're all highly paid professionals and yet - no pace, no width, no vision, no heart. Being six or seven thousand miles away I can't comment on performance other than what I see through the lens of the TV camera and so I defer to those who actually watched the game live. I have a better view of the business end of things and so I watch the Khans in the US news, watch Kline on Twitter, follow the USM shenanigans in the press, online and on here. My views on capital investment are as valid and as relevant as yours on team selection and player performance. Yes, in our own ways, we're all Fulham fans. Long may we continue.

Having watched football for over 50 years, I cannot wait to visit your famous ground. I have been to watch football (only OAFC) in the capital many times but never had chance at the famous Craven Cottage. May I wish your team and fans all the best for the rest of the season ( after the third round of course) and look forward to sharing a beer or two with your supporters. Cheers.

We welcome supporters from all clubs,you’ll get a friendly welcome in pretty much all the local pubs.I know a lot of people who regularly visit the cottage not always supporting Fulham it’s a special place,no doubt about that.

Can't be bothered to read it, hope Schurrle is not including himself as part of this so called 'talent'. He was sh*te on Saturday and it's amazing how when he is ready to come back he starts yet Kamara scored a goal and had to sit on the bench!!
posted by FFC Fan (Guest) - Monday 10th December 2018, 11:33 AM
 
I think Schurrle looks quite under-nourished, and although he has a decent turn of speed, he loses the ball too easily to more robust defenders. He's stated he turned vegetarian/vegan after a nasty bout of food poisoning, but you wonder whether he needs some nutrition that's going to bulk him up a bit. No, the protein in lentils ain't the answer.

When you go to United with a side lacking in confidence whose team have little to no Premiership experience it is a bit like Mansfield Town going there in a Cup Game! What we have to do is prey those who manage our club will understand now that their recruitment policy was crap. We need a total change of our defence - Alfie Mawson was part of the Swansea set up that was relegated last season. Why buy him when he was injured? Crazy. We need a Moussa Dembelle or N'Golo Kante who can grab the midfield drive us forward and lay some balls off for our forwards ......then we might score some goals and win games. Get it!
Replies
Agree with most of what you say Rich but taking Mansfield as an example I bet, knowing they were the underdogs, would have rolled up their sleeves and give it a go if only for pride and the fans that went to support them.Surely playing at one of the worlds most famous grounds is incentive enough if you're a professional player.

Yes, we need 3 points against West Ham!!! Yes, sounds like a broken record we need 3 points! Even with 3 points we will not get out of the bottom 3 - we must not be cut adrift!! We have to find ways to not be bottom come Jan 1st - history tells us bottom team WILL be relegated without a fighting chance!! I hope Raneri doesn't mess with the team team beat Southampton and drew with Chelsea too much for the west ham game! COYW.

It will not happen in a million years, but if i put this about, maybe Khan and co will act on my daft or not so daft suggestion. An old gunslinger 4-4-2 formation with a 2 striker partnership likeBig Mitro and Balotelli could work a treat and bring us what we crave for, 'GOALS GALORE'!!! Why not? We are going down anyway, that is what a lot of fans are saying, why not fight, turn things around, and break some records in the meantime. Balotelli is a immature and daft baby, but one day, babies do grow up into adults don't they? Like him or loathe him? Balotelli is clever with a football, and he knows what to do with it in a situation. At the moment, we can't say this about any of our squad except for Mitrovic. One of the best attributes in some exceptional footballers like Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic, George Best,Charlie George, Etc, is Cockiness. Some people don't like this, but being assured and cocky and full of it helps a lot. Within our squad, at the moment we are mouse more than men, and i hate to say this, Mario Balotelli can bring some much-needed confidence to the table. We have ability in abundance within our squad, but we are short on confidence which Balotelli will bring to us. Be angry, upset, at my suggestion whoever wants to be, but if most have accepted that we are down? if some are harking back to the good old days back in the Championships? We have lost the war. We can't just give up now we are here. It takes an Italian to know an Italian, and maybe Ranieri can get the best out of Balotelli. A small club like Fulham and a big ego like Balotelli's is the most unlikeliest combination, and maybe against the odds, this can work out for all of us...

Hello OWEN. Will you please stop going on about Balotelli. He had his chance in the EPL and failed to cut it. Headbangers (and Allerdyce) we do not need.
posted by willie2B (Guest) - Monday 10th December 2018, 3:17 AM
 
Balotelli would be a disaster waiting to happen. He just wouldn't fit into our squad, because he's all mouth and no trousers. What we need in defence are tough, hard men who take no prisoners, lay it about, and are used to playing at EPL level week in and week out. In midfield we need players who would even outrun Kante, and be able to split open opposite defences, like Snodgrass and Jonjo. In attack we need proven scorers at this level like Zaha to feed off Mitrovic. At the moment we've got highly-paid fairies prancing about the field with no desire to COMPETE, TRACK-BACK, and COMMAND RESPECT.

The last time we were in this mess we looked around for players on loan and got Johnny Heitinga from Everton - thats the type of player we need, a warrior who gave everything even though itcwasnt his parent club
posted by Keetch54 - Monday 10th December 2018, 6:32 AM
 
Owen- you have an obsession with Balotelli. Whatever form we are or team we have, he's never a good fit to play with Mitro. He doesn't have the pace to play off Mitro. He needs supply of balls and we are not able to do that at the moment. Name me a team with two big strikers....that formula only worked in the 80's and 90's. Not now. So if you think the two would gel - think again!
posted by John (Guest) - Monday 10th December 2018, 8:35 AM
 
Owen, do you really think “if I put it about maybe Khan will act”? I don’t think so mate. With regard to Balotelli, I think he would be the last player I would pick to get us out of this mess. He is a luxury player, he is not a hard working type of player. Whatevey striker Ranieri signs in January we will still need a midfielder to get the ball to him, or them. This is only my opinion Owen so please do not reply with a long drawn out post ending with capital letters. You have given your opinion and I have given mine. By the way, the next time you are in contact with Khan please tell him to stop his son buying players.

Owen reading your recent posts I thought you’d turned the corner mate, they were interesting and started to make sense. However with this one about Balotelli you have gone back to being out of touch and downright silly. Reading this one and it’s taken me time to respond because I started banging my head and then could see the funny side!! It’s like Ranieri he gave us a little hope with those performances and results once he took over the hot seat and then brought us down to earth at Manchester. Please don’t be offended long may you continue, your feverish enthusiasm stands out a mile.

Thanks, FFC' I threw in a Xmas party pooper there. Making sense all the time would put me in the same league as MST. I have got to throw one in now and again.

There have been many comments made by the fans and the media on the exclusion of several players who steered Fulham to promotion from the Championship this year. With a £100m spent on new players during the summer break, it has become obvious that this was money spent unwisely. The 2017/18 play-off squad looked good in the Championship, but the lack of Premier League experienced players needed addressing when it came to adding numbers to strengthen it. Unfortunately, the players bought in are not up to scratch for the EPL, and this has become evident in the performances and results achieved so far. There is no backbone to the team. No leaders, no physical presence, and a complete lack of desire and effort needed week in and week out in this fiercely competitive league. Every team (out of the top six) are capable of beating each other and have players of outstanding quality. Players that are match-winners. Apart from Mitrovic, Fulham have none. A strong midfield, a good pair of central defenders with two fast ball-winning full-backs and an excellent keeper is necessary to keep clean sheets. Apart from a good keeper, Fulham lack in all other areas. It looks like another massive spending spree is needed in January if Fulham are to have any chance of avoiding relegation back to the Championship. Another miracle such as Roy Hodgson managed when Fulham looked doomed and went on to stay up on the last day of the season a few years back. Now that was a memorable day but are we capable of replicating it? Please feel free to drop your views into the comment facility beneath this article. COYW’s

Brian' we have given Mitrovic a bit too much slack lately. He also has been terrible. The few chances that come his way, comes to nothing. Maybe he is tired? All of them need to up their game in the coming weeks. I wouldn't put my hand on heart and say that Johansen and big Mac would do better? I assume so, but i could not be certain about that. I always stood by Kamara even when some fans didn't rate him. Kamara still infuriates me to frustration. The guy takes the coolest penalty i have ever seen, and yet in front of goal,he blazes it over skyscrapers, what is that all about? They all need to go back to Motspur park and work on their individual weaknesses. Back to basics, and practice practice just like Ronaldo does after training. We are not as bad as we think. We beat Burnley and played fantastic football, we played fantastic against Brighton, and Watford who we should have beat. We conceded late on, but you know something? Fulham do have a habit from the Championships for conceding late goals. Come to think of it, this is not unusual for us. The prem is much more brutal, and we get punished every time. Football is a confidence thing, and our only way to break out of this gloom is to keep on working hard first back at Motspur, then bring it on match days. Ranieri is working out who and what works. The UTD game was a never win game. Obrien he tried out, i don't know what he thinks? Christie he left out for a reason,we will see who plays next. It won't be easy against West Ham, and i hope the big guy, Arnautovic is still injured? We need to play well, but we also need some luck. The puzzling thing is, have we gone back-wards as a squad? or are we the same ole' same ole Fulham from the Championship? In the Championship we got away with murder a lot of times with those silly passbacks. I don't know???

I agree Brian and also with OWEN's last sentence. I believe the problem is pretty obvious. A flurry of late buying (Tony Khan I guess, possibly SJ was not totally excluded) gave no time to put a team together. SJ was overwhelmed with new players and failed to identify his best 11. Hence first 6 plus games we had strangers playing with strangers. Also injuries with Mawson and Bryan were a major setback. Mitro' was always our target man but he has found EPL harder than championship - surprise, surprise. But he has not had the service that he had in the championship. He is good enough but without a reasonable service he will not score too often. Seri and Vietta are quality players but lack strength and must do an Andy Murray or go. I don't have a solution (does anyone?) but I would stick with strength, which equals Kamara, Anguissa, Macdonald with Cairney (loses the ball less than Seri) and Chambers. The backs must be Mawson. Bryan and Adoi (until January, we must buy a quality right back. If this lot can't feed Mitro, then buy someone who can. Last but not least, Sess. That leave a good bench - Schurle, Seri, Le Marchant, Johanson & Ream. Finally, Ranieri has to minimise his tinkering. I doubt this post will attract notice but clearly, most of us could do better than SJ and Ranieri put together provided Tony Khan steps back.

After 1/1, we will have played all of the top 7 away. So there are no obvious zero-pointers left. I think we can get points, and even win, everywhere else in the league. I foresee the Khans spending money in January and us getting 4-5 away wins in 2019.

I really don’t understand why we go back to the khans whenever we have an issue. Yes, they are ultimately accountable but there job was to back the club, and they did. The fact they Were given the wrong advise on players is another issue. The can’t be responsible for everything. I believe are transfers are made by a committee, and the head coach is one of them. We will regret when they walk away!

"They don't pick the team, train the players, choose the tactics, make the subs or make the half time team talks." Correct. They BUY the players and do that so badly that all the above points are rendered moot. The vast majority of the blame for the current situation lies with bad recruitment, as Rainieri is rapidly finding out.

I wouldn't regret their departure for one second. Absentee landlords both of them, dicking around with their toys from afar. Their lack of any football knowledge, their hubris and resultant piss-poor management is bad enough, but having one of the leagues most family oriented club skating on very thin legal ice in TWO seperate fraud investigations has, for me, made them totally unsuited to be involved in our club in any capacity, irrespective of how much money they throw around. Take off the rose tinted glasses John. Stop being blinded by thier dropping small change. This major, ongoing and embarassing f#ck up is down to the Khans and their milquetoast CEO McIntosh.

None of us knows the truth but it does seem that Khan bought the club as a wedge in for his American football. Meantime a toy for his son and his computerized player picker who threw his toys out when he was finally rumbled. The truth may never come out (this is football after all, a really slimy business) but unless Tony Khan steps back, our club will only go one way.

The fact is the owners spent £100m - every penny of the cash flow they get with the promotion. I tell you it hurts them even more how the investment has turned out. Now they are committed to the stadium build work. Why do we still have doubts and blame them for everything - I really don’t know. I don’t know the Cardiff owners but would you swap Khans for them? No investment having got the promotion! Or would you prefer the Southampton owners? Who sold any assets they can realise on the pitch! How about the West Ham owners - sold house and rent one (albeit a nice one) on the cheap? Finally, how about the Newcastle owner??! Say no more! Think about it! I feel I have to defend the owners as I have been for the last 4years!
posted by John (Guest) - Monday 10th December 2018, 9:25 PM
 
Defend tham all you want John, very noble, but MAF was a lifetime ago. The Chairman is a business man who leaves the running of the club to his son. The performance problems are not of his making. His son, however, is a sporting dilettante with no clue as to what he's about, no focus, no strategic direction and a tin ear to boot. Perhaps that's why some of us are less than enamoured by what they've done, and are doing, to the club. Much respect to you John, we both have our opinions and in many ways they're not in conflict, but a rose garden it isn't.

West Brom hold the record for staying up on the least points - 34 in 2005. For Fulham to achieve the same would require 8 wins and 1 draw. I’m an optimist, but looking at the fixtures, I really can’t see where we will achieve this. Unless we create a new record of course.

Sobeit' 8 wins and a draw it is, i think we can do this, i think we can break records, and we will break this one! I have seen some funny results so far in this prem, and teams like Cardiff are picking up points when they shouldn't get a sniff. I think they call it overachieving, and Cardiff are doing that lately. I don't know what it is about Fulham at the moment, we are certainly underachieving and our players can't seem to work out the puzzles at the moment. Seri, Marchand, Even Anguisa ex-man Utd? UTD don't pick many bad players. For various reasons around Fulham at the moment, there is a lack of confidence on top of our usual worries. That is why we need Ranieri to sort this mess out, and he will in time. Wolves are beating Chelsea 1 minute, and Chelsea beat Man City? I could go on with some more ridiculous stats, but i see it that anything is possible. They used to say that a team that finishes 3rd in the Championships never go up? We did that because Fulham were better than 3rd place. Even in the Championships, we were sometimes losing to teams like Burton which made our lives harder. We never do things the easy way, and we all get frustrated. We all love Fulham to tears and i feel that we all want players like Seri, and others to show something. If only we can unlock what is stopping our players from performing? Ranieri knew we wouldn't beat UTD, and maybe he did the juggling with Obrien and no Christie etc for a reason. Just maybe Ranieri knows or will know which players and what positions is best in a situation. After all, did we really think that we would beat Manchester UTD? Mourinho has stated that Ranieri is the most important Manager in the prems history, and everything about Mourinho and his time and successes here points back to this quirky Italian man. We are doubting him now we have lost a few games. We need the tinker man to unravel his box of tricks and get us out of jail. If Ranieri pulls this off? It will go down as one of his greatest achievements of all time. To rattle off 8 wins and a draw you say? No problem guy's' WE ARE FULHAM!!!!!!!!!

Hand on heart, are any of us enjoying this season, because I am beginning to hate it. I am really fed up with my club being the laughing stock of the Premier League, and that is what we have become. Give me the calm waters of the Championship, where everyone has a chance of winning. If, as expected we do go down, then I hope that it will be at least a couple of seasons before we return, with far more experience than this short visit. I do enjoy watching Premier League football, but when every game I watch I now have to worry how it will effect our position in the table. Watching today's Newcastle v Wolves game, is a case in point. I am willing this match to be won by Wolves, or even looking for a draw. So no enjoyment whatsoever.

Well Norman, you have just had your wish as Wolves have grabbed a last minute win. Looking at both sides, if Fulham can't take 6 points out of them over Christmas, then we are certs for the drop. We are only 5 points behind Newcastle now, although 6 if you count our really awful goal difference. Norman, I must admit I slightly agree with you about being back in the Championship, as we are proving at the moment that league, is our level, but don't give up just yet. I have a friend that supports Palace, and he has the same feelings as us, as he reckons that they are very poor and will be relegated. COYW

Agree Len. The bottom six this season are truly atrocious. 15th-17th could all have less than 35 points if that’s even possible. I think we’ll beat Derby 2008 point total thankfully but relegation is all but certain.

January 1st is the day that we need to have three key players we are after on the books probably Drinkwater, Cahill and one other. If we do not sign key players early in the window by the end of January it will be too late. January is a key month for us to close the undoubted gap from where we will be and safety. Although our Xmas fixtures come thick and fast we will need to plot our way round it to maximise our points. No point being knackered for the winnable fixtures. I think Ranieri will just do it! There are still four really poor sides in it for the bottom 3 places and they might all buy in the window to help with their safety too, so not going to name who is going down until early Feb!

Why is everyone so sure we are down. Last time I looked we have a lot of games to go. The issue is simple, it was not slavs fault and he should not have been sacked. It is not the tinkermans fault either. Iam am sure the Claudio will see now that some of the new signings need leaving out, not dropping but leaving out as they are no good. Seri and Anguisa are clowns , we could get better players at lilly road rec. WHOEVER WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR BUYING THESE PLAYERS SHOULD HOLD THEIR HEAD IN SHAME. Still there is time , but Claudio must be strong and tell the board these signings can not play as they are not good enough, he can either get a couple in or play some youth players, even they will track back. Its a real shame after the exploits of Wembley but we still have time so back Claudio and hope his eyes work as well as ours and he can see we have been mugged off with a couple of bin men!

Sensible post big Gazza Surely Nobody really expected anything from Old Trafford apart from perhaps a bit more effort. Why we should suddenly be gripped by panic following a hiding from one of the big boys is quite beyond me. We have plenty of time to put it right and there are clubs around us that are very ordinary and catchable. Slavisa should never have been shown the door but at least following yesterday’s tame surrender Ranieri knows exactly what he is up against.

last 4 games this year will leave it clear where we stand. All winnable but realistically if we get 7 points it may allow a realistic perspective of survival.otherwise r.i.p.

Where are all you khan supporters who were raving about the hundred million transfers, SJ was never the problem it’s the crap players that khan brought in. As long as the khans own the club we will always be third rate.
Replies
i think the khans have been great for the club. There's no real money in fulham football club and they've invested. They don't pick the teams or set up the squad to play. They don't arrange the tactics or make the subs. Not one of last years squad is good enough for the premier at the moment and all those who think ream and cairney are good enough are sadly mistaken. Out of the players brought in few have succeeded but until they are seen that is not known as several came with big reputations. But keep blaming one person it takes the problem from all the other failures at the club.

SERI ,so slow gets caught in posession 8 out of 10 times which has resulted in disaster in early part of games ,but worse than that he doesn't chase back he strolls through game like a super star,he is neither big and strong or small and fast and agresive ,he's basically a liability no heart no passion an absolute waste of money ,when I think we could have got Oliver Norwood for a Renner and saved 29,999,990£ and been no worse off what a clown seri is .please wake up claudication before it's to late

Seri was going to be transfered to Barcelona who were going to pay 40m€ release clause. They then opted for coutinho (comparable?)We then get Seri and Lemarchand for 20m. Cant work it out. Doesnt work out.Without doubt Barcelona not only are a better team, they know more about business.Khan should stick to making bumpers.

I really do believe that we are relegated and it seems that we all forget where this begins from. Mr Tony Khans wonderful signings creating our hard fighting squad which won promotion to be torn apart and make way for the worst players I’ve seen for generations at our lovely club. Let’s remind ourselves of not only a waste of circa £100m but did any of us no the majority of these players prior to joining Fulham Seri £27m - He has now had enough time to be a decent player and should be dropped awful. Anguisa £22m - Absolute rubbish best suited to basketball and totally out of his depth. Mitrovic £18m - Yes did great in championship but now struggling as no service and becoming bit player. Mawson £15m- Why would you buy a centre half from a relegated side who leaked so many goals and for me again not up to premier. Fabri £6m - not featured and not likely too. Le Marchand3.6 m - I don’t think I’ve seen a worst player who panicky gives the ball away and caught so many times. Shurlle loan £360k - Will never maintain premier standard not performed at Hamburg and not good enough .Chambers -loan - ok good couple of games but previous shocking and let’s be honest not a premier player. Vietto - loan please go back ASAP. Mensa - loan again really poor Man U knew what they were doing to put him on loan. So with the worst additions ever I feel Mr Khans got a lot to answer for and Ranieri has an impossible task. We need 6 quality proven premier players, not from French connections and why now would they come to Fulham facing certain championship football.
Replies
It’s easy to rewrite history, but pundits congratulated us on our shrewd, preseason signings. Yes, it’s a real mess, but I’m not really sure quite why it’s all gone so terribly wrong, or whether it was simply inevitable, with such inexperience both at Board, managerial and playing level, Ad it is, we are certainly doomed

Well, that was the poorest FFC performance I've seen this season. It was dreadful - mistake after mistake. I watched highlights of all the other matches and every team was more disciplined and possessed the drive, determination and passion that we lacked. Even Bournemouth, who were nearly as bad. Ranieri - who makes sure the players all eat together - needs to give them all a right boll**king for their lack of spirit and should fine them one week's wages for letting down our fans who support them week in and week out.

NEVER SEEN A DECENT TEAM DISMANTLED SO SWIFTLY AND AT SUCH A COST.NO HOPE NOW UNLESS RANIER WAKES UP GROWS SOME BALLS AND LEAVE SERI AND CO AT HOME.COUW.

The truth is that deep down, we know that today's game was a nil poi. Even with Mourinho steering the ship, we are still playing Manchester UTD. Those dropped points last week to Leicester was crucial now the mist has cleared, and Brighton, Watford Etc. 40 goals and counting now, it is in our heads. The January transfer opening won't necessarily bring about the right players to save our season unless Ranieri knows something every other top manager doesn't know. My first priority player on the list would be a first-class striker. Mitrovic was instrumental in our promotion season last year, and at the start of this season he was scoring goals. Now he looks laboured and not much is happening with ball to feet. I just wonder if internationals games and featuring in most prem games has caught up with Big Mitro? Tired maybe? Can our talisman continue leading us to safety? Does he need better supply to him/ 'Yes' Would more supply make much difference? I doubt it right now. Mitrovic receives the ball, but he is always back to defenders, and he needs to work harder towards goal. Mitrovic desperately needs another big striker to play off, take the heat of him. Scurrle is not the answer, and as good as i think Kamara is, there is no psyche or connection between the two. Unless there is a hidden gem like a Salah out there? We are stuck! Put it another way, Chelsea might miss a trick, but there are 4-5 other teams who will pick up on anyone half decent. Seri i think has had his chances, and he is just too lightweight in that midfield, even if he comes up with one or 2 flashy goals from long range in the coming weeks, it still won't be enough. Maybe time to bring back Big Mac and Johansen for some old fashion feet toe-in tackles, and hope Ranieri can come up with another creative midfielder that can operate with Cairney. Agassi is ghastly, and the sending off will do us a favour in that someone else can get in there. I have stated that these are desperate times, and maybe we should take Seri out of the equation, and bring in''' MARIO BALOTELLI!!! That is my thinking outside the box, and if anyone can come up with another striker who is capable of getting us goals? bring it on here. Suggestions, please. We need something and everything. Just remember that other teams around us will just have desperate to get goalscorers on board too. If we stick with Christie on the right side? we gamble unless Nathaniel Clyne comes in at right back. That is another crucial call Ranieri has to decide. I still say we need a proper right back, but what do i know? This is just another fans forum, after all, is said, no big deal...

All week before our matches, I think we are going to win or draw. Before the Leicester game, when they were without Vardy, I thought, great we should win this one. but no we throw away a lead near the end again. Then everybody said that Man U, were there for the taking, as they are out of form, and had a very hard mid week game against Arsenal. What happens, well the team is inexplicably changed around, when we looked to have a settled defence, and we showed no fight, or football skill. Quite rightly all the media are now saying that we look certain for the drop, as we need to score at least 4 goals a game, as we are likely to let in 3. I was so looking forward to this season, thinking that we would do OK, but now it is turning into a nightmare, and all the enjoyment that I was looking forward to, has been washed away. It looks like a quick return to the Championship, with one of the worst records ever in the Premier League. I'm really sad about that.

Last season, or the last half of it was my favourite time to support FFC. The football we played was exciting and a breath of fresh air. We ran rings around most teams and looked better than half the Premier League teams for much of it. Now we know that the gulf between PL and the Championship is greater than we envisaged. The real sad part is that when we go back down, and I'm with Brian on that point, we won't have the manager or players to go back to that style of football. It will likely be what we have now but against a lower standard of oppo. I'm already feeling nostalgic for last year but cannot see much ahead to lift the gloom.

I understand there is a team of 4 including the head coach One person based the suggestions on stats , such things as stamina as well as skill and aptitude. How can Seri have been suggested by even one of the four , he is clearly not what is required for the premiership . And Zambo even worse , massive disconnect between brain and feet . One new keeper made sense , two never . Schurrle was considered a spent force three years ago , Long after his illness . He might be good for 20 minutes but is not what is required in a dog fight . Let’s have some clarity from the top and answers .SJ might have been involved but who gave the final suggestions to TK . We have learnt nothing following disaster signings with Kosta Packet and Fonte , every time we spend big it goes wrong .

With hindsight we should have made it a priority to keep Fredericks we miss his blistering speed down the right and tried harder to sign Targett and then give last year's team , the one that got us promoted , a chance to show what they have got bet they wouldn't be bottom of the League !

Like many others on a packed delayed rubbish train service. Hopefully now everyone can see that it’s not SJ to blame. It doesn’t matter who you have in charge this squad with these signings are potentially the worst ever in premiership history. How can we be worse than Cardiff and we clearly are? It’s about time we all woke up and started to blame Tony Khan and his inept transfer policy. He had enough chances of getting it right in the championship which he did eventually. Now he has made us a laughing stock in the worlds biggest league. The man is an idiot and whilst we all pay to follow this team he acts like a spoilt kid spending his dads money on things we don’t need!

Schurrle can’t be playing against the top sides. We need speed and strength going forward and tracking back - he’s all finesse. Anguissa is a headless chicken, offers nothing, no cohesion with the rest of the team. Chambers and Christie and AK47 had been our three biggest contributors of late, we missed them all first half. If Ranieri is going to rest the A team, better to see StefJo and Macca than Seri and Anguissa. Worst first 45 minutes in years. Passive and passionless.
Replies
Big Mac would be better than Anguissa, Schurrle just isn't at the races. Schurrle is a luxury player and he is better in a top 6 team. I like AK-47 and i want him to do well, but we also need Mitrovic to sparkle. Mitro just isn't performing at the moment, and our big worry is the supply to him, it is terrible! Ranieri needs to pat attention to the little details about the opposition. Example; Ashley Young, always always' will trick back onto his right foot to release a shot or a cross. He will not shoot on his left foot. Even you and every fan at Fulham know that one Drago. It is so frustrating that a one trick pony like Young can still get away with that goal, Criminal! I will come off now or i will be moaning all night. Disappointing day...

What about Matt O'Riley instead of Anguissa, Seri or even Schurle..its a joke

Watching the games this season we seem to be the only team that is not fit enough to cope. Under Slav we played possession football and made the other teams work until we saw an opening, over the last three games we have had to change our style using players that were trained to play this way and were economical fitness wise. Now we have to play a style that they haven’t played before. Time is the crucial thing now, we need to get some sort of results before The window opens and then buy the right players. In all honesty I feel for some of our players.

Listened to Gentleman Jim’s commentary, even he was halfway to suicidal. It didn’t sound to good. Congratulations to the Whites fans, who I could still hear, despite the performance, well done, at least we can be proud of you. Didn’t understand the team selections at all, thought they were improving. Why no Chambers, or Le Marchand? Or even Christie for that matter, he’s upped his game recently. Seems nobody, except maybe Abu, Vietto, Chambers and Odoi are playing with any spirit. Spirits gone from the team. Seri is now beyond the pale and Cairney is no Captain. Not too hopeful:((

We have concede more goals than any other Premier League side in 20 years. We are now in a position, that I hoped that we would never get too, where we will have to win two games on the trot to catch up, so how important are our next three matches against West Ham, Newcastle and Wolves. We just MUST pick up points in all three of these matches, or we will be in the dreaded bottom position by Christmas, and we all know what that means. We will Claudio be our saviour with some good signings in January, or are we to go down without a whimper.

Haven’t learnt any lessons, the back 4 were starting to play well together especially with chambers in front of them. Now they don’t know seem to have a clue as they are playing with changes. Has Ranieri done this so his friend keep his job, Ranieri said need to keep the same defensive but changes 3 of them, so very strange,hopefully he will explain

Our tackling is so soft, delicate little tackles, our centre backs should be stronger than that

I don’t blame em. The ref has been giving free kicks for everything not to mention the red card. I was impressed with us second half...damage already done but look like a different team. Why can’t we start all games like this

Unless we come back 4-3 and win the next 4 in a row. Thiscseason is a write off. Before it started I was optimistic, dreaming of top 10. Top 6 I even said. But now it's relegation. I don't see enough wins coming. Even when u think we're playing OK we let in goals after goals. 3-0 down half time I can't watch any more it's embarrassing. Next season championship. Let's keep 3 quarters of the team. If possible win the championship and give it another go. Or stay down there for a few years again. Should of kept sj to be honest. We're not looking any better. We have some fixtures coming up on paper that look like we can scrape points but if we don't that's it for the season. COYWs (very disappointed)

It appears the CR bounce has crash landed. A very average United not having to break a sweat. No passion. No fight. The air of relegation inevitability has overwhelmed the whole lot. Convinced now the nonsense with Khan and company behind the scenes has poisoned the whole club top to bottom. Can’t see a way out anytime soon.

No matter what is said or dream of staying up, it will not happen. It’s not Ranieri fault simply players and squad not good enough. At least 5 quality players needed striker, 2 defenders two quality in midfield. Why would anyone want to come to Fulham? We cannot stop leaks and yes I predicted lose 3-0 today but also we all wrote this game off as a loss. It’s just the manner in which we give up.
Replies
Sadly, true. We would have been better off keeping faith with the squad that took us up and banked the rest. In fairness, every pundit thought we had bought exceptionally well, especially when we got Seri. Even the experts have been proven wrong and we have clearly overspent. Am still convinced that it was right to release Jokanovic, but not sure if anybody could make this squad work.
posted by Rm (Guest) - Saturday 08th December 2018, 3:54 PM
 
very disappointed with team selection today. Chambers has been playing well so why pick Ream who has again confirmed that he cannot clear the ball out of his own penalty box. Mawson again is showing that he can defend and without him we could be 5 down. Midfield continues to give the ball away and frankly, I've had enough of Seri. Have to agree with Kevin. Let's get down and begin our rebuilding, hopefully without input from Tony Khan.

willie2B...We have to assume Chambers was injured because he wasn't even on the bench .
posted by FFC SUPPORTER (Guest) - Saturday 08th December 2018, 4:47 PM
 
Chambers, Kamara, Mitro, Mawson, Christie - they have the physical attributes to play at this level. Sess and TC have the skill, but you can only play one finesse player like TC in the XI, and not against the Man Us and Man City’s. Ranieri needs to prioritize mental and physical strength above all else for us to survive.
posted by Drago (Guest) - Saturday 08th December 2018, 6:59 PM
 
Chambers injured in training, but don't understand why Odoi was preferred at RB to Christie. We need to be looking at the likes of Cahill on loan from Chelsea in January - he would fit in perfectly with Mawson at the heart of the defence - then we need to find a proper defensive midfielder, plus a creative alternative to Seri and Cairney in midfield and either give AK47 an extended run to link with Mitro or find an alternative to AK - Mitro can't do it all on his own. Then we might have a fighting chance of staying up.

Its just to easy for manure, no pressure at all they are in complete control no danger. Bit depressing, hopefully get in half time just the 2 down and maybe ranieri can change things about but I didn’t expect we would get anything out of this game anyway. We’ve always been the club that gets beaten by out of form teams

posted by JIMJO (Guest) - Saturday 08th December 2018, 2:27 PM
 
I suspect Christie & Le Marchand are being rested after playing 2 games in 4 days and doing a lot of running in the fullback positions. Chambers must be ill/injured, no way he'd drop out of the squad based on current form. With that being said it is probably the most balanced looking side we've fielded on paper, everyone in their natural/best positions. COYW!!

Odoi, Ream, Mawson, Bryan, Back 4 looks okay. I thought that Mourhinho had lost the plot, but sadly not. The return of Lukaku means a busy afternoon for our back 4. Christie is not a defender so correct decision by CR there. Seri needs to be more precise, and both he and Anguissa need monster games today. We also need big games from Sessegnon and pass master Cairney. Welcome back Schurrle. COME ON YE FULHAM!!!
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Saturday 08th December 2018, 2:45 PM
 
Chambers looks better and is playing better in that forward position, but should he have put away some of those chances in past 2 games? Everyone else is getting slated for not scoring in positions he finds himself in. When he comes back, he's got to be more clinical with those chances.
