I anticipated lots of Brentford fans coming on this site and telling us how good they are, and that we have no chance. Whats happening guys? No Buzz Bee? Then again, Buzz Bee is a Fulham supporter in disguise, everybody has sussed that by now. To my mind, this game is all about Mitrovic and how he picks himself up from last week's fiasco. There must be a strong and positive reaction from the big man and this is the perfect game to come to the fore and shine like a beacon light. Cometh the hour and cometh the man they say. COME ON FULHAM!!!!!!

Good afternoon all you hopefuls, and FFC fans. The soothsayers predictions for to morrows game. FULHAM : Some talent in side, but tend to do three things : : : tire easily, no cohesion, and lack teamwork. BRENTFORD : Lack the talent of FULHAM, but work as a team, and follow their astute managers guidance. RESULT Fulham 1 Brentford 3 ~ alternative FULHAM 2 BRENTFORD 4,less than 24hrs, so get down to the bookies and earn some cash.

I see Luke Harris was omitted from todays under 21 game against CP, does this mean he could be on the bench for the Brentford's game, if so does it mean the fans may get to see a glimpse of great talent before he is off to liverpool

Yes, knock the whole thing down and f*ck tradition or any advantage it gives our team, I'm sure Klapp and his pampered pansies would prefer to wander round the back of the Putney End past a gaggle of drunken scousers. There'd not be a Rolex left. Or perhaps if they want to avoid the madding crowd and go direct to the Riverside we could lay on a u boat to arrive in instead. We could play the theme music of Das Boot too just so he feels at home as V1s and V2s whistle by overhead pursued by Hurricanes.

No mention of why so many people that are stopped and searched are black? It’s called racial profiling. If you’re born white in this country or any other country for that matter you’re already at an advantage. Your just to ignorant to realise it.

Promoted to Premier league you are pretty much guaranteed £160m including parachute money. Forest have spent over £110 and still spending and they have acquired some players on high salaries so I suspect their wage bill must be over a £100m a season now. So even allowing a loss of around £30m a season, how can forest afford the spend and not breaking the FFP rule soon. We spent £100m but the highest earner was Anguissa on £70k but Forest are paying £180k a week for Lingard. I think it will be a catastrophe for them if they don’t stay up!!!

I think Jesse lingard only has a one year contract
posted by Jay (Guest) - Friday 19th August 2022, 12:40 AM
 
You have to remember that the cost of these assets (players) is amortised over the period of their contract so a player costing £10m on a five year contract only has £2m against him in the P&L costings, then it's down to wages - from memory wages can exceed income by 6% and more if a chairman makes a financial donation. There are people who contribute to this board who know more of the detail but you can bet your life that every player Brentford (and FFC come to that) have signed has sell on clauses should they get relegated and that is where FFP could come back to bite them (or us) rather than whilst they (and we) in the prem.
posted by MT - Friday 19th August 2022, 8:39 AM
 
Exactly. £160m is calculated based on this year's prem money and 3 or 4 years of parachute money. With most players on 4 year contract (amortised), they have spent their 4 year's budget. As we found out, it wasn't easy to let players go (Seri, Anguissa, Mawson, etc) if you are relegated. So basically, if they are relegated, they will be penniless in the next 3-4 seasons. I am guessing their plan-B (i.e. relegated) is a yo-yo model.

posted by Riverside (Guest) - Friday 19th August 2022, 5:05 PM
 
If Forest stay up, Cooper is a genius, and if they go down, it will be 'told you so' just like Fulham did. What is worrying to me if i was a Forest supporter is the crazy cost and desperation what it looks like to stay in the prem. It took them 20 odd years to get back into the premiership and even if they stay up next season, what is the plan after that? Transfer embargoes will come into play i suspect, and there is no way that you can throw money around like confetti season after season without the football authorities taking notice. I also think Forest have gone over the top with spending and there might need to be assessments and adjustments after xmas. You can't just keep spending money like that after season one.

We should consider this man mountain of a guy who might even deliver more goals than Harland up at City. He is age 25 and he plays for Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart. Apparently Man Utd were interested and i think he would be another wasted talent at Utd. Check out his profile. There are not many potentially good enough strikers knocking about at this late hour of transfers...

There are rumours around that we might try to get Maupay from Brighton. All I can say in noooooo. I have actually watched this excuse of a striker play, and I can assure you that all of the Brighton supporters that I know, and it'squite a few, would pay for any taxi to bring him here, or send him anywhere else. He is really poor, and even AK47 is far better than Maupay, and that's saying something.

All I need is a friend Someone to give a helpin' hand... A song lyric from a great English band 'Free' which is one of their best, along with 'Wishing Well'. The sad thing about 'Free' is they broke up a long time before reaching their true potential. I think Mitrovic needs a friend right now, 'you know what i am saying kuyne? We all need to put a hand over his shoulder and say' Mitro mate' just go out there and destroy our noisy neighbours at the weekend. Are Brentford that good seriously? The Utd they beat were devoid of confidence and they were shocking from top to tail. Man Utd reminded me of a Fulham team that messed around with the ball at the back and teams coming at them. We have more than enough guns and artillery to work the ball up to Mitro-man in the likes of Robinson, D Reed, Kebano, etc. Defensively, we should be more than okay with the likes of Palhina in front of the defence. Mitroman will feel friendless, angry, and embarrassed that he missed a penalty that he might have converted if only he tucked it away in the corner. It was easy peasy against Allison so there is no rhyme or reason or technical detail why mitro should have missed the penalty. As Bob Marley said in a song, 'a hungry man is a angry man' and i think that Mitrovic is angry and hungry. Mitrovic is our number one striker and we must make him feel like the main man because he belongs to us fans. So let's show Mitrovic some love and appreciation against our noisy neighbours. You never know' we could be rewarded with 3 points and dare i say' a happy chappie in Mitro with goals and top of the table in the fantasy league. Haaland the main man? Mitrovic can do better than that surely...

Great news MT. It would be great too if Justin Kluivert is as good as his father Patrick. A young winger and potential striker is a good addition and link up top to Mitro, and also a good prospect for the future if not put yet in the firing line. I am in agreement with Willian in our squad and i cannot see any reason why Willian will not try to play football and be influential.

Anyone offering odds as to the asylum status of the attacker? Let's hope his solicitor succeeds in getting him deported after his sentence. I'm hearing a group of dustmen were attacked by a knife wielding gang in Ealing today too. I've been upset at late refuse collections too but seems a bit extreme.

I would suggest the true racists may well be the perpetrators of the crime, the sooner the fuzz stop being social workers and proactively hunt down these kinds of thugs instead of waiting for them to murder us all then destroy the environment with blue and white tape everywhere after the ghastly deeds are done the better.

Thanks Judge, you just jogged my memory on something; as most people on here know, I travel in for games from the Forest of Dean and for at least 28 years now, the M4 gets shut from time to time around 9.30pm from Chiswick to the M25 when we have night games.

Thought the pro-independence lot in Scotland really showed their true colours at last night's hustings. Tw@ts! Let them go I say and see how they get on with their free dental treatment, eye tests and tampons that WE subsidise. Wonder what taxes will be like with six million taking and two million people paying in. Give them five years and they'll come back cap in hand - either that or they'll try to lower the boarder and cause a civil war which they'll lose again lol. If it is such a fantastic country with such fantastic people why are their more Scots in England than up there lol....

I’d be quite happy to see the back of most of them. God they could teach many on here everything you need to know about moaning. As you say we subsidise them big time and not too sure they spend it wisely. A lot of Scots however do believe in the Union and are not supporters of Mrs Crankey. Let them vote and piss off if they really want to. Upside, if we want to be spiteful, we could jerk them around as the EU have continually done to us since Brexit. All Scots down here would have to register as foreign nationals or be sent back, renounce their Scottish nationality and become English citizens or Welsh, deny them the use of the £, kick them out of the U.K. banking system, NHS. ….I’m warming to this the possibilities are endless. They are a busted flush,EU wouldn’t want them and dread to think what interest rates they’d pay on any international borrowing

Why are we chasing the signings of Jonathan Zirkzee or Neal Maplay two forwards when we really need a decent defence? I know we have now Mr Solomon out for a long while, who has only been signed on a year's loan but if we need a forward surely the better option would bringing back Moussa Dembele from Lyon, he certainly knows where the oppositions goal is. We should be signing Andreas Christensen or someone of his callibre. He is a free agent now having left Barcelona. What about it?

Kluivert deal nearly done, good signing. Maupay interest increasing, that would also be a very good signing. And, Willian would be a risk but probably a risk worth taking. The fact we haven’t seen him play for a few seasons is immaterial because the fact he was rubbish at Arsenal and hasn’t done well in back in Brazil combined with his age are the reasons for real concern.
Replies
I've not seen Kluivert play so Can't comment but totally agree about Maupay, he would be a fantastic addition and I could even see him playing WITH Mitro and feeding off his scraps. If the Willian rumour is true then he will unlikely play every game but will be good to have around the squad - especially as inspiration for the younger players. He has good experience in the Prem and was not "rubbish" at Arsenal, he just did not have the same effect as he did at Chelsea. He was still a very good player, played mostly, out of position and in an unsettled dressing room. No one at Arsenal covered themselves in glory at that time! Let's wait and see but personally I have an open mind...

Willian stats at Arsenal were truly shocking by his own admission the worst season of his professional career
posted by Riversider (Guest) - Wednesday 17th August 2022, 9:26 AM
 
I'm happy to be corrected, do you have a link to where Willian made those comments please. I watched him at Arsenal as I do most games on TV and although, I completely agree, that he did not reach the dizzy heights of his Chelsea performances, "truly shocking" is not a phrase I'd use. This happens in many cases when a player moves clubs - look at that Spanish lad (name escapes me at the moment) that knocked them in for fun at Liverpool and was not the same at Chelsea. Same with Lukako at Chelsea last season. Kevin Debruyne, Mo Salah were two other players that never made it at CFC but have excelled since. It happens all the time....

Dunno Broaders, Ferguson was a bit of a bully boy striker in his day. Definitely a threat in the air and only a year or two older than Williran. Seriously though, Willers wouldn't be a bad 'throw him on for half an hour' signing. We'll need a robust squad for our inevitable cup run. On the subject of has beens, Sunderland are being beaten, down to ten men and Patrick Roberts still can't get off the bench. Why aren't we bidding on this former legend?

Looks more and more likely he could be joining Fulham. I am concerned on his motive. Is he really interested in playing for Fulham and get board Marco's Stay in the Prem project? or does he only want a get out of 'Brazil' jail card. We can't afford luxury player or another Loftus Cheek! We need players prepared to give 110% and not a pathway to get back on track.

I suspect it's a bit of both. clearly he wants out of Brazil, so hopefully he'll appreciate the chance FFC gives him and his family and give his all.. Why did you have to mention Loftus-Cheek....?

What risk is a free transfer on a year contract? The only possible risk is if we are paying him too much. Apparently, Willian has accepted and agreed to a much-reduced pay package to come to Fulham. There is a wife and kids involved in this equation also, they have to be considered. The safety of Willian and family was in doubt playing for Corinthians and that is a strong reason for the move. Willian has been around the block long enough to know that the kids education and safety is better in England and i think that he is more appreciated here rather than in Brazil. Yes' there is a question mark on his goals return and there doesn't seem to be very much in the locker, but did Marco loan him to score goals? I see 5-6 worldie goals maximum and i think there could be loads of assists and link-ups. I love that he is coming to us because i think we need a wise old head in the mix of things. I am confident that Willian will give his all and show his appreciation by playing for Fulham, so do lets give him a warm welcome...

Womens football and mens football is the same sport but are different games entirely. Why can’t everyone agree with that. Men are physically stronger and faster than women so the game is going to reflect this and subsequently it is a different game to watch and play in. That is the fundamental meaning of Souness comment and it doesn’t diminish the worth, merit and ability of womens football. Indeed, because they are different both bring differing attributes to the sport.

To be awarded a penalty 20 mins from time and then not score is unprofessional. All professional footballers should be able to score from just 6 yeads! Mitrovic is a head and shoulders above most defences but should not take another penalty until he has proven he can convert them. Agree with the comments on here about our squad being threadbare and the players we have recruited and are looking to recruit have not been playing regular first team football for some while now. So how does our management expect us to win in the Premiership. I advised last time out not to change a winning team, now we have to change the line-up or get totally undone at Brentford. Where I ask is our new towering centre back?

I have just returned from Cobham where I watched the under 23 game Chelsea v Fulham and what a cracker it was. You guys seem to have a knack of unearthing talent ( but your problem is hanging on to it). I am old enough to have seen both Johnny Haynes, and jimmy Greaves. But your Luke Harris defiantly fits into their mould 3 goals + he dominated, a classy performance, when you let him go give us first shout.

I'm all for a bit of skill but I would argue that there's plenty of skill involved hurdling a scything tackle on a quagmire of a pitch. Drinks breaks? Five substitutes? A two hour wait for a goal decision from some suits in Uxbridge while eastern bookies rub their hands in glee? The modern fame is a farce.

Modern GAME. Predictive text has ruined one of my constructive diatribes yet again. Speaking of a mans game, the great Robin Friday once thumped Mark Lawrenson who complained to the Ref. Friday, aggreived at the erudite Lawro being a tell tale, went to the Brighton dressing room and shat in his shoes. Suppose the Lionesses would put itching powder in the tena ladies nowadays.

Here we go again Broadsword interpreting Souness's comment wrongly and would actually try having us believe Souness who played for Liverpool doesn't care about skilful play as long as there is a bit of violence, what an absurd comment but what else would you expect from him.

You don’t like women’s football, Magicman? OK, don’t watch it. But it’s not a “man’s” game. It’s everyone’s game. People should remember that the authorities have had to steer this professional game through the dark days of football violence and stadium deaths, common during Souness’ time. Back then the owner at Stamford Bridge, Ken Bates, installed bars and railings round the pitch to deter pitch invasions, and it was perceived as a game for violent young men who frightened everyone. I agree there should be an opportunity for passion in the game, but the authorities will never let insensitive and even unlawful behaviour from pundits, managers and players encourage such bad behaviour again.

I am astounded how many posters are already making assumptions after two games, especially as the transfer window is still open. How we progress remains unknown and I feel confident that Marco will bring in another two players including a striker. Please stop moaning, speculating and just wait to see who is brought in to strengthen both the defence and attack. Yes, the game against Wolves was disappointing but no one can make a sensible prediction after two games.

Toney is a huge test, for Ream especially. When a true 9 came on for Liverpool in Darwin Nunez, we looked vulnerable. Diop has more athletic ability, but is unproven. Silva has a choice on his hands, even though Ream has mostly played well.

Lose against Brentford and it will be all doom and gloom. But the reality is the Liverpool game was just one game. The squad is threadbare and weak the Premier League is strong. We are probably not going to be good enough and all this nonsense we are going to be mid table and Mitrovic is going to score over 20 goals is just that complete nonsense
Replies
If we play the excellent defenders we have just taken on namely Leno,Mbabe,Diop and Duffy there is every chance we will stay in the Premiership, but if we carry on with what we currently have defensively it will be a long and stressful season.

If Brentford lose to Fulham, then the same thing will apply in reverse.

What was really frustrating was the Mitrovic missed penalty. It is patently obvious that this league is run by fine margins. We draw against Liverpool and we accept it, we should be upset because we coulda' shoulda' woulda won it. Mitrovic's missed penalty is a downer now because Forest beat West Ham which gained them 3 points from 2 games with Fulham on 2 pts. Mitrovic knows more than ever that every missed penalty is a nail in the drop coffin just like our last stint in the prem. We must suck it up and do better and move on quickly. Neco Williams seems a loss because he is a live-wire and he gets around the pitch, but is he a genuine right back? I can't do the maths on Neco Williams deal or no deal but Marco Silva seems to have a plan and a system that will see us successful and stay in the premiership. 'Boy' do we need a monster massive signing before this transfer window shuts. Forest have a 20 million pound striker who gets 20 goals in the German league apparently and he bundled one in by hook or by crook. I would like to see Mitrovic continue to prove is capabilities to the knockers who doubt him and i think he will. I hope that Silva has a quiet word with him and Mitro puts the penalty miss disappointment from his mind because we need to dust ourselves off quickly and prepare for the visit of our noisy neighbours who will be buoyant and full of confidence coming to the Cottage. Life will get tougher than Brentford soon in this prem so we need to pick ourselves up and make every chance and half chance count for the best. It looks like fine margins will either keep us up or break us in this league. I know where i want to be when this season is over and that is still in the premiership because it is exciting, especially when you see the unpredictability of this league. Imagine Man Utd bottom of the league and Fulham above them? We can do it if we take our chances, so lets go get chances and take them against our noisy neighbours Brentford!!!!!!!!
Replies
I watched the whole match on TV, and what a let down. IMO, we were lucky to get a draw as we played like school kids, letting Wolves time amd time again overrun our back four down the left wing. They had so many chances of scoring it was a miracle we survived. As for mitrovich, unless he controls his emotions all other teams will gode him into getting a deserved red card by his juvenile behaviour. I would tell him to grow up and fine him his match fee, and if it happens again a months salary.

To be fair if you are going to catch a team on the break. We are the boys for you. High line and lack of pace and no cover, how many times are we seen scrambling back. Wolves were poor and had no clinicality. Hence a decent result. I seem to recall 75% of goals against us last season were on breakaways, that as yet is to be mirrored in the Prem. What to do about it, much tighter and compact like Brighton who rarely concede breakaway goals. Simple!

I’m very impressed with Pereira’s work rate out of possession. His passing and decision-making through two matches has been poor. With our lack of wingers, we should perhaps shift him to the left or right and use TC to play behind Mitro. Also, it may be time for Marco to bring back Joe Bryan or Cav. Tyrese Francois playing out of position on the left is not going to work.
Replies
Totally agree with Pereira assessment. Would do much better out wide but more than happy with his work rate. Problem is, if we can see that, Silva can too. TC I’m afraid is close to being done as a footballer. His two cameos have been painful to watch. Knees look done. Silva doing the best he can with what he’s got available.

Tete and Tosin are very good squad players, and will always be good emough for the subs bench, if not playing, but I will be very surprised if they are still our number ones in their positions at the end of the transfer window.

posted by A C (Guest) - Sunday 14th August 2022, 5:49 PM
 
Agree JRD, Marco felt Neco was the much better player and if there was no FFP he would definitely be in a Fulham shirt right now. Which leads me to JohnC. If WE go down again, we will be in the same situation as Forest would be, probably worse, as Forest could sell and recoup some of that money, as we have blown over a hundred million and they are all gone for nothing except Anguissa. Extremely risky to spend on anything other than loans at this point going forward.

Good point TTIN' and the road to disaster could be a burnout of teams going out of the league such as Derby who overstretched themselves. Apparently, Wolves haven't won a proper match in 12 and if i remember rightly , they spent heavily just to even get to the prem. Nuno Espirito got them here and they spent heavily and now they could be another club in danger of a free-fall back into the Championship and beyond. The same could happen to us at Fulham but maybe not, because our owners are not prepared to go fully in and throw money around again and again. We did it once and it didn't work out.

There is more pressure on Mitrovic now more than D Reed because more of the responsibility is more on Mitro more than ever. We know that Reed, Kebano and a few others are not great finishers. So long as they create chances and trickery in the penalty area, they are doing their jobs. perfectly as far as i am concerned...

Put Stansfield alongside Mitro, lightweight he may be but what a speed machine he is.

I am reasonably pleased with the start to the new campaign in the Premier League, but that's it, and I hope that I will still be reasonably happy, after the next set of fixtures, which will include, Brentford, Arsenal, Brighton Spurs, Chelsea and Newcastle, before hitting the likes of Bournemouth, Villa,Leeds and Everton. We did extremely well against Liverpool, and we should have beaten Wolves, but should have, doesn't get us 3 points. If we are going to do quite well this season, and there is no reason why we won't, we will have to pick up some points against the so called elite clubs in the league, so we do need another striker to help out, that's for sure, and Marco, according to his interview, is well aware of that, so hopefully some extra fire power in by next Saturday.

Bear in mind we are still playing last year’s team with only 2 new players. If you take into account that we lost Wilson, we are probably only 1 player stronger. This is the same team that Parker managed. So we are doing really well and as we integrate more new players, we will get stronger. My only concern is without Wilson and Manor, our wing is too weak and not strong enough to give mitro loads of chances. But we are good I think.

If Man Utd thought they had it bad yesterday, you lot are going to wish you were back in the Championship, by the time we have finished with you

Nice to see jay Stansfield given some game time, Luke Harris next, at least Marco gives youth a chance.

Bee Bop, Manchester United were pretty dreadful, but quite honestly your lot were not much better, and you were given goals that you would not often get against any other teams defence. You may be boasting about beating us next Saturday, but I very much doubt that, and your forwards will not get a look in against a far superior side.

Not interested in pub sides this is a Fulham supporters message board so f*ck off.

Unless the moderators stop the lot from Hounslow cropping up here every five minutes we may as well rename this message board the Fulham and Brentford supporters message board I personally have zero answers interest in BFC and am tired of their constant interruptions.

I think the two subs made were a messages to the management look at the crap I have to put on because you are not buying the players I asked you to get.

Now is the time to introduce the new defensive signings, Leno,Mbabe,Diop and Duffy. The current back five leave a lot to be desired at this level, may have been OK in the championship but this is a different ball game.

I agree in part. But I think Marco's ethos is if it aint broke and you have to earn your place in the team! Which I think is right!

Interestingly on the Fulhamish site Tim Ream was man of the match.
posted by Bobby (Guest) - Sunday 14th August 2022, 11:14 AM
 
Agree except for Duffy. I’d like to see Diop with Tosin. Clear from yesterday that Ream is too slow in transition. Absolutely amazed that Leno is on the bench.

Points dropped in both games so far is a bit disappointing and it should have been 6. It still is a good start for us with no losses and dare i say it, with Ream who Marco has some belief in.
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Sunday 14th August 2022, 12:31 PM
 
You may feel we dropped points due to the missed pen but we could’ve easily been down 2 none by then. Enjoy the point away and the fighting spirit we are displaying unlike the previous relegation seasons.

Looking at the coming weeks fixtures, and I see that there are a great deal of Championship fixtures on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, and I am wondering if we miss these mid-week matches. Personally I don't. I am looking forward to playing, and hopefully beating Brentford next Saturday, with a normal KO time, so no worries about going straight from work to CC, or having to leave work early to get to the match, several times throughout the season. This is another good reason to finish 17th or above this season, which I am pretty confident we will do.

i've been giving it a lot of thought and I think my opinion is i'm not bothered either way.

You will still have to leave early hardly any transport by the way are we going to play extra games midweek this year to counteract World Cup shutdown ( hope we are not in bottom three during this stoppage hate to be there for three weeks very depressing !!!

If our next match against Brentford wasn’t big enough anyway it has just taken on a greater meaning with Brentford’s result against Man U. We could really set a marker if we hammer Brentford. A massive opportunity for us.
