The definition of Farage in the Urban Dictionary has this: Farage To masturbate in an angry and confused way using unconventional stimuli. Mark's Wife was furious when she caught him having a farage over a picture of Ann Widdecombe. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Farage

Dear David RIVERSIDE STAND DEVELOPMENT ANNOUNCEMENT Making sure that Fulham remains at Craven Cottage has always been a key pillar of the Fulham Supporters’ Trust. We are therefore delighted with today’s confirmation that work on the new Riverside Stand will start this summer, a significant investment from Shahid Khan towards securing our long term future by the river. Craven Cottage is an integral part of the character of our club. That we continue playing there whilst work is ongoing is also of paramount importance to us, as we have made clear in our regular discussions with the Club and which they have acknowledged. We appreciate that there will be inconvenience when it comes to relocating an entire stand’s worth of Fulham supporters elsewhere in Craven Cottage. Since January that is something that we have tried to assist the club with, making suggestions and offering feedback throughout. We will continue to try to offer solutions so that fans’ inconvenience can be minimised. Whilst space is limited in the rest of the ground, we have made the point that everything possible needs to be done to keep the various groups in the Riverside sitting together. Once the stand is rebuilt, it’s important that Riversiders then have an opportunity to sit there again and be kept together once more. Again, the Club have listened and sought to do that. Not everything we suggested has been possible, but we will continue to work with the Club, both during the build and after, so that we have a ground full of our own fans. We welcome the commitment to regular dialogue with stakeholders during the build and to provide regular updates on progress over the next two years or so for supporters and residents alike. The Trust has already been in discussion with the Club about reflecting our history and heritage in the new stand and we will continue to pursue those themes. We too want the new Riverside Stand to be a part of a ground we can all be proud of. Our next regular meeting with the club is on Monday 10th June. As ever, we want to hear feedback from Trust members old and new. If you’re not yet a member then please join here and help us continue to shape the future of our club. It has taken a while for all involved to get to this point but today is a significant day in the history of Craven Cottage. It is worth celebrating and we thank Shahid Khan for that.

Going to the Putney end for me, oh well could be worse, at least we are staying at The Cottage and it will be a worthwhile sacrifice after two years. Hopefully they will be generous to us fans who have to relocate when it comes to allocating seats in the new stand in a couple of years time!

I have just been reading Schurrles assessment of last season , he believed he played well and could have helped the team if he had played more games ..... the man is deluded . Total lack of commitment and effort overshadowed his obvious skills , just another mercenary taking the money under false pretences.
Alan ...agreed Schurrle was a hopeless signing couldn't even finish 90 minutes I admit he scored a couple of flashy goals but FFC needed a lot more from him same for Seri sooner they are both off the books the better same for Le marchand who according to the stats was the worst central defender in the Premiership of course we didn't need the official stats to tell us that .
posted by FULHAM SUPPORTER (Guest) - Wednesday 22nd May 2019, 8:21 AM
If he is so sorry about his lack of appearances, and he was obviously being well paid, for his non showings, why didn't he offer to stay for a season in the Championship, where with his experience he would probably have done pretty well. He obviously thinks that playing in this league is below his dignity, which I think is a disgusting attitude. So he will go back to his parent club, and not even find a first eleven spot. Good riddance I say.
posted by Brian Jarvis (Guest) - Wednesday 22nd May 2019, 8:24 AM
Most of our signings in the frantic supermarket-sweep that was last summer's transfer window were unknowns. Shurrle, though, was 'a name', with World Cup pedigree to boot. But he epitomised our season. High on expectation, low on delivery. One memorable goal, but little else. Physically, he looked far too lightweight to cut it in the PL. Begs the question whether a vegan diet is suitable for a PL player?

Apparently, we have an interest in getting him on board. I was screaming out for us to get this guy last season. Assombalonga has plenty of pace and can get the ball up to forwards quicker than most. We lacked pace all season in prem and this is part of the reason why we are back in the Championships. We still need to sort the defence obviously...
I mentioned him a few years ago, has scored 45 times an his last 126 appearances over 3 seasons.
Current market value is £9M, may cost up to £15M though.
Still a good buy.

Rodney Marsh’s name is one of the most remembered in the history of English football. Widely admired by thousands for his spirit and charisma, as well as incredibly talented gameplay, his career peaked in the 60s and 70s with many highs and lows on the way. Perhaps, he was too talented for the times he was born in. Rodney Marsh’s story is the story of undermined talent and free spirit. Rodney Marsh was very well-known among the English fans for his performance in several renowned clubs. He started at Fulham as a junior team player, and after scoring 40 goals there, he was given a chance to show what he is capable of in the 1963 game against AstonVilla. The winning goal was his, and manager Jezzard was very satisfied with this beginning. However, soon enough Jezzard was replaced by Vick Buckingham, who had little tolerance towards individuality and order defiance. He and Rodney Marsh sure did not get along. It was understandable, though: Rodney’s style of game was far from conservative, he longed to play by his own rules, to be maximally effective on the field even if his game contradicted the manager’s overall strategy. He sought to entertain fans rather than win the game. He wanted to have fun on the field, pulling off tricks and challenging his own teammates. What kind of manager would love that?Rodney Marsh 2 Apparently, Marsh was a complicated personality to deal with, often lost and unable to decide what he wanted. He was born and raised in extremely poor conditions, and often mentioned his controversial relationship with his father. He grew up a free spirit, unwilling to play by the rules of the system. In his interactions with managers, he pulled off jokes that could certainly come off as disrespectful. However, he had one advantage: he was an amazingly talented player. Alec Stock, manager to Queens Park Rangers, was among those who appreciated Marsh’s talent and individuality, and let him attack fiercely on the field, just as Marsh had wanted. In the 1966 season, March scored 44 goals out of 53, with some of the goals being so tasteful and thought through, they seemed almost impossible to perform. Rodney himself admitted that he was too free-spirited for the conventional English football. His talent did get him far, but his compliance and easy disposition could have got him even further. Unfortunately, he had neither. The tone in which he made remarks about the games, fellow team members and managers left much to be desired. He was very rarely tolerant of the situation around him, and filed for transfer multiple times throughout his career. His many injuries did give him further career setbacks. But he was loved by many, and he never settled for a bleak compromise. His style and flare will live in the memories of his fans, because he truly knew how to play for them, and not for the club’s management pleasure or profit. And this made him a true maverick.
I found this article by Sportsfreak. Rodney Marsh was not always liked by his peers, but i have always liked a player like Marsh. Funnily enough we always attract a few mavericks over the years. I like my flair players and entertainment is what we are known for. Bring on the next Maverick i say...

Ryan Sessegon to Manchester United makes sense for the boy, but at not a penny less than £50 million or perhaps we could persude him to put pen to paper on a new two-year contract and sell him after we get promotion again to the big boys league? If as it appears Aleksandra Mitrovic would be prepared to stay at Craven Cottage next season to battle and gain promotion once again. I say keep him at all costs because us fans love him in full flow but he needs Sess to lay the ball off to him as that is what we did in our last Championship campaign.
I suppose for some its better to live in a life of illusion than a life of reality

I recently look at details of our squad and note Cauley Woodrow is still included despite having been transferred to Barnsley a year ago. Who is responsible for keeping this section updated. Like Fulham boy I also saw the 10 - 1 thrashing of Ipswich when Graham Leggatt scored a three goals in four minutes which was, and probably still is, the quickest hat-trick on record. I also saw Ronnie Rooke, my hero at the time, score all six goals against Bury in 1945/46. Those days saw football at its peak when it was almost impossible to get into the Cottage unless you arrived at least 30 minutes before KO as we were starved of regular matches due to the War although football still carried on with guest players turning out for clubs nearest to where they were stationed. Of course, there was not any competitive football as it was suspended for the duration.
At last somebody who remembers the great Ronnie Rook,what a blow when we sold him to Arsenal.We also had a good left winger Ernie Shepheard on loan from Plymouth. Those were the days when we had 3 international centre forewords playing at one time,I think one was Jock Mc gibbon also on loan .Good days

Maybe ive missed something over the years but surely this team is no more than the prime example of 21st century football greed and fraud. No questioning that they are currently the best group of players in the PL,but thats just what they are a group formed by chequebook with no scruples with regards to the real spirit of football or home grown talent .Fortunately they have many a year to go before they can even glimpse Uniteds worldwide recognition. Let me elaborate. There are certain fair play financial rules evidently only applicable to the minnoes. If your team is owned by the mayor of doshtown who uses that name as its sponser then flogs as much cash in cos its perfectly legal. If you own an airline, then much the same applies. Aer lingus, Klm ,air france etc cannot be supported by their governments in times of trouble because EEC legislation considers this unfair trading. However if you are Demirates or batar no problem, its perfectly ok to run them at a loss and subsidise them with petrodollars .In fact they can produce accounts showing surplus which end up at city ,psg ….Someone below dared to compare with Brazil. Please please.That was probably the best footballing nation in history and not very ethical to put in the same pot.

Whilst City may be perceived as a footballing super-power, Pep's primary objective when he was appointed was not to win the domestic competitions (Mancini and Pellegrini had already done this). He was brought in to dominate European football, which so far has been fruitless

Pep Guardiola is just a brilliant coach and we shouldn't begrudge him his success or City's. I remember Stirling could not even kick a ball straight and he missed chances millimetres away. Now an improve Stirling and England benefits immensely. I wonder what he could do with a left back who isn't really a left back, who plays right wing and left wing and is baffled and confused in what his role his??? Guardiola is the reason why self-proclaimed genius Mourinho couldn't take the heat in English football anymore. I hope Scott Parker learns a few things from watching pep football. I can't blame Sessegnon for slinking off to pastures new with how we play him...

Jack Walker bought the title with Blackburn Rovers, the Liverpool side of the 1970s bought all the top players, rumours abounded about Leeds United buying games and Don Reevie was engaged in a corruption scandal. So it’s ever been thus. Man City are disliked as it’s overseas money and in vast amounts and they have few English players. Sport is about competition. Man City are so good that beyond Liverpool there is no competition. For me, as so few teams have any chance of winning the Premier League it’s not a competition and it’s not worth watching. The championship is much better for spectators. I hope some other teams like Spurs bridge the gap and make it better and City get a transfer bans and championship league ban as it’s clear they have cheated by sponsorship well above any true commercial rate.

I appears acording to several papers that arsenal want Zaha and are prepared to offer Chambers + cash this is one guy I would love to see stay at the Cottage,i am sure a good offer could be made. Seggers for 20m plus Chambers
Would imagine Chambers would prefer Premier league to Championship!

I just cannot believe the club not only not put season tickets up for sale, have not made any statement on the plan. This is very unprofessional and in any business, it just isn’t acceptable!! I have defended the club on many occasions including the bad transfers but this is just extremely amateurish! Come out and tell the fans what is going on!? We appreciate the complexity with the new build but we just want to hear what is the plan. We are the customers and on this occasion we are not treated with proper transparency or consideration!
Dont panic there is another 11/12 weeks to the start of the season,many clubs have not released their ticket prices, plus the fact where could we be playing

Like thousands of others I have just watched today's FA Cup Final, and to my mind, Manchester City are spoiling everything for all the other teams, and they just humiliated Watford this afternoon, which wasn't really nice, for a major final. Who is going to stop their charge now. I suppose it can only be Liverpool, as the rest don't seem to have any chance. City are the Celtic of the Premier League.
Yeah - probably could have kept it at 5-0. I don’t think Vincent wanted the six - you saw his Facebook to Troy. They will get another 100 points next season...and will probably score 200 goals. Premier league is in danger of being low formula one (or the Scottish premier league) too predictable and only ever one winner...
posted by John (Guest) - Saturday 18th May 2019, 7:59 PM
Man City are winners, I wish that the Fulham players had the same attitude. No successful side are good losers. IF IT WAS FULHAM AT THE TOP I AM SURE THAT ALL TRUE SUPPORTERS WOULD BE WANTING NO ONLY SIX BUT SEVEN. I was lucky enough to at the cottage when we beat Ipswich 10 -1. Watching Haynes grab the ball from the back of the net when number 8 went in and rush to the centre circle to restart the game as quick as possible to score more.
posted by fulham boy (Guest) - Saturday 18th May 2019, 9:08 PM
Crikey! Talk about sour grapes! Each and every Man City player gives everything they have in every game. They work hard to get to the top of their profession and become successful in their chosen sport and I for one think that is remarkable and admirable! I don’t recall anyone saying Yusain Bolt is ruining athletics or Anthony Joshua ruining boxing or Steve Redgrave ruining rowing or Ian Thorpe ruining swimming or, or, or. In my opinion people who reach the pinnacle of their careers are to be admired not admonished. Shame on you...

posted by Dogbert (Guest) - Friday 17th May 2019, 9:40 PM
Bit harsh Doggo, he was playing out of position much of the time. Anyone else think it's odd how all these other interested clubs still think he's a left back? He couldn't play there in the Championship and only really shone when we got Targett in and pushed him forward.
posted by Fred (Guest) - Friday 17th May 2019, 10:03 PM
Possibly the worse move who could make. He would develop into a much better player under the guidance of Pep, Klopp or even Poch. There are some parallels there between how Utd & Fulham are run.....Stay away Sess, hold out for a club where you will thrive.
posted by Liam (Guest) - Friday 17th May 2019, 10:50 PM
Even if Man U offer £40m against Spurs £25m? Sess doesn’t want to sign a new contract so as a club, we maximise his value. Anyway - there’s more chance him playing for Man U than Spurs at the moment. He will not get a game at Liverpool - he’s no where near Robertson or Mane.
posted by John (Guest) - Friday 17th May 2019, 11:58 PM

Defender or headless chicken? The England U21's (when he does manage to get off the bench) see him as a forward, whilst potential buyers/FFC don't really know what category he falls into. Take the big bucks because 3M is probably the true valuation

posted by Fred (Guest) - Saturday 18th May 2019, 2:56 PM
whatever club he is rumoured to be joining, out of the three suggested, the point is, he wont play every week and his progress would be held back playing as a sub or in cup games. the best solution could be to let us keep him on loan for next season, at least he would get regular starts. oh yes, and dogberts valuation of him is, lets say politely, misguided, a bit like his first post, and the next one due up soon--.
posted by cottage dave (Guest) - Saturday 18th May 2019, 4:29 PM
Listen, I like RS - he's a good lad, but unfortunately the defensive side of his game is nowhere near up to PL standard, whether he is at LB or further forward. His ball retention is poor, and tracking back is a struggle. Take the biggest cash pot because filling RS's boots will not be a problem, but addressing our other failings will need every penny of his transfer fee!!
posted by Dogbert (Guest) - Saturday 18th May 2019, 6:43 PM
I honestly believe that sess is premiership class, but he suffered the effects of playing in such a pony team,and being virtually discarded when clownio came and confused the issue even more.as for it not being a problem replacing him, i don't think there is a talent to match him on his day on the left side, wherever he plays there. my point is he is coming up 19, still young to be carrying such a huge pricetag ,but I am resigned to see him depart to spurs, who will probably put his career in reverse, as they did with davis, malbranque and Dempsey, all of whom were never the same when they played there.
posted by cottager dave (Guest) - Monday 20th May 2019, 1:32 PM
I remember when a decent young player at Palace named Saha, wanted to join United for probably the same reasons as Ryan. After a short miserable time there, he managed to get a transfer back to Palace. Now he older, wiser and probably a much better player by having regular first team football, and is ready to try again at a bigger club.

A number of players are going back to their parent clubs according to this forum. Markovic is not a surprise, but Callum Chambers, we should be buying. Richo for me is the best keeper we have. I am not certain that Bettonelli is prem class, but then again we are not in the prem...
I feel we should go all out for Chambers coul exell in the championship, Rico ? a great stopper but like a lot of continental keepers cannot catch always punching.

Source; Evening Standard

Controversial striker Aboubakar Kamara will be given a chance to resurrect his Fulham career by Scott Parker.

Kamara was cast out on loan to Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor for the second half of the season after he was arrested in January on suspicion of actual bodily harm and criminal damage, following allegations of a fight at Fulham’s training ground.

Parker wants the 24-year-old to return for pre-season training, when he will assess his squad and weigh up whether to keep him.

Kamara joined Fulham from French club Amiens for £5million in 2017.

Stefan Johansen, who spent the second half of the season on loan at West Brom, will also return to Fulham in pre-season.
As will I be. He does divide opinion though!
posted by Chris of Jokes - Friday 17th May 2019, 4:28 PM
Hello, Fulham people's! I Aboubaker will be trying my best a hundred and ten per cent and i score a lot of goals for the peoples. I promise this for the new season. It is my duty and it will be an honour to play my football under Scott Parker and to make the peoples smile. I want to say, 'Je t' aime' Fulham. Thank you all the peoples... Aboukaker Kamara...

Great news MST, and i would like to add that one Stefan Johansen is also back for the new season. My only worry is a transfer budget for Scott Parker, will he get one? Build from what we have by all means, but we also need fresh faces around our team. I am happy for Kamara and i hope he comes back with his shooting boots. I still think we need another striker, the more the better. Our defence is terrible and it wasn't much better in the past. I hope we can work on this problem and bring in fresh blood where necessary. Scott Parker needs to be ruthless and drop those who make too many mistakes. I hope the Khans can fix this with hard cash... P.S, nice touch from Kamara above, i knew he had a heart, he loves Fulham...

Terrible, if not unsurprising news. I think this signals that Mitrovic is going & Tony is pulling Parker's strings. Add this to the average journeymen players whose contracts have been extended ( Ayite, Kebano, Odoi ), the very likely loss of Sessignon & the return of good loanees to their clubs, ( Chambers etc, ) a promotion season seems unlikely. We could struggle next season, although a low mid table finish seems more likely.
posted by Ollie (Guest) - Friday 17th May 2019, 11:42 PM
We will also have Fonte coming back from loan spell with French Club . He has a lot to prove . Pity about Chambers as like several here , i thought he was one our best players and could be very good in the championship . But Arsenal seem to have problems in midfield so maybe he sees opportunity there . Whoever we do sign we need to get them in early so they can adjust and we have a shape and system (s) ready for the off . Bringing in 8 players on the last day of the window does not work
posted by davidk (Guest) - Saturday 18th May 2019, 12:50 PM
Parker might well be a yes-man and is doing as he is told, but i only see him lasting 6-8 games. Are we in a bad or good position? Time will tell. There is a flash sale and there will be good money floating around. The Khans might well be correct if holding back on spending in the Scott Parker era. Let us see how we kick off the season in the Championships and how the likes of Aite, Kabano, and who is left onboard perform. This is a good test for Scott Parker and traditionally Fulham always have time to pull back any bad start to our season. One problem might be an experienced manager and there are no takers around at the moment. Maybe Bielsa of Leeds might be available? We don't know anything yet. It is important not to look at our situation negatively and think we are heading into free-fall. We are Fulham and we will recover quickly in a crisis. Scott Parker will have his opportunity as skipper and he has the best help available in Stuart Gray and others on board. There will be no hiding place or any missed opportunities for fringe players on bord now. Aite, Kabano, and whoever will need to get over any injury hiccups in close season and come out of the shadows and prove they deserve a shot at Fulham. Over to you Scott Parker and all the best. 'You have 6-8 games in my opinion, entertain us!!!!!!!!

yes, let sorry go, but mitro is on a long term contract with a huge buy out clause, something that most premier league clubs probably couldn't afford,. take away the top six, where he probably would not play regularly anyway. the sessegnon debate is likely to rage on, with all likelihood of him going ,we cant stop that, and then at spurs consigned to the bench, when he could stay next season and get his confidence back. at the end, it will be all down to currency.it would be good to get targett again, and also two new centre backs, preferably both over six feet tall , who can actually head the ball and compete for it.

The only word I can use to sum up season for me ABYSMAL .Jokankovic and Ranieri Stubbornly Refused to change there principles. Sometimes you have to look at your players and use a system that suite them
I think Jokanovic was prepared to change. He was trying things (more defensive with each game) out but his philosophy is not that of, say Warnock. Most fans don’t want that anyway. Ranieri was stubborn and he tried to shake the trees with the wrong tool... it killed and then collapsed onto him!

Have we bought anyone yet ?
We put in an 80 mil bid to Palace for Saha, because we thought he said he wanted to play in the Championship league. But suprisingly he didn´t want to join us.

Two of our goals nominated for goal of the season! Watching those goals again reminded me how good we were (at least for one game) and how we blown Burnley away playing the football we can only dreamed off in the premier league. It's such a shame we weren't able to continue and I wonder again if we only given SJ another half dozen games to improve the defending, what season we would have had! But hey - let's not look back in anger...
John, sorry mate we can't do "ifs"
posted by Fred (Guest) - Thursday 16th May 2019, 9:19 AM
All too late now of course John, but I think after the away Liverpool game, that SJ had worked out how to use these players. We could not have done worse after that. The away Huddersfield did shake a lot of people's faith though.
posted by Baz (Moderator) - Thursday 16th May 2019, 11:51 AM
A dozen defeats could have been turned into draws - wonder how far off we would have been. Might not have drifted away so much. Weird timing after the Liverpool game to sack SJ, even though we lost it was a much better performance. But then decisions made all season were strange

After 2 mainly successful seasons with FFC , TK wasnt sure Kallas was right for us . He was maybe too consistent , didnt get injured much , always reliable - where was the fun in that . Much better spending a shed load of money on unknowns with no track record in English football . Pity as i think Kallas was ready to commit to club . At least with Fonte and Kamara returning to us after hugely successful loan spells , we dont need to be looking for new forwards !!

Looks like we will lose Ryan this summer. Which is a shame but we will hopefully get a fair price for him.
Regarding who we bought with the £100 Million last year in particular Zambo, Anguissa and Seri for about £70+ million what happens now ? will we get much of this money back if they moved on or can we even move them on. They probably had clauses in there contracts they could leave if we were relegated but how does that work if no one wants them.
Think you’ll find that combined they cost less than half that...

See old Warnock just extended his contract with Cardiff. I quite like him, although that puts me in the minority. With the promised backing from Tan they'll be a serious competitor. Always liked day trips down the M4.
Agree Arizonan, not sure why some people take against him. Bit of a pain maybe, but passionate and one hundred percent. Maybe they know something I don’t. Have a great summer, look after those little “ doggies” (?). We’re off a bit later for a bit of R&R in the sun....aaah, early evening gin & tonics await. Good summer to all:)

Can Chris Coleman the other Welsh Rabbit, sorry Wizzard replicate his international form into Fulham? I would have said, give the guy a shot, he is available after his low profile sacking back in China. He just didn't do enough first time around for me. I would take Chris Coleman if only we could also sign Gareth Bale. Sadly none of this nonsense is going to happen, so we might as well go with Parker. 'Scotty' 'Ya got 6-8 games to impress' then it's over to you 'Michael Laudrup'. Apparently, Laudrup is fed up with this coaching lark and he as sworn that his current job in Qatar will be his last. Laudrup at the age of 54 is bored with the repetition of coaching, and he wants out. Poor Michael is just not feeling it at the moment but give him until the end of summer, and he will be pining for the bright lights of London. A swanky flat over the Thames, and 6 million quid a year in his bank account, and throw in some wrinkles and pickles? Sorry make it Jellied Heels' Winkles and Pickles are for that other lot, those Hammer boys. We are a bit more cultured and up-market this side of the Thames. Over to you Senior Khan''' 'GO'GO GET' MICHAEL LAUDRUP' After the 6 weeks holidays when the kids have gone back to school will do us fine.....
