Not the best time to be a Fulham supporter at present but having followed the club for 63 years thought I would think back to my best 5 memories of that time as follows:- 1)Watching the great Johnny Haynes in his pomp, 2)Alan Mullery scoring past Peter Shilton in the FA Cup in 1974. 3)Clint Dempsey's goal against Juventus. 4)Reaching the Europa Cup Final. 5)Beating Villa in the 2018 play off final at Wembley. Would be interested to hear other opinions and nice to hear some positive thoughts at this difficult time. Also as an afterthought returning to and remaining at Craven Cottage is pretty important.

Good memories was having a pre-match drink and walking through Bishop's Park on the way to the game. Meeting friends outside the ground , putting the World to rights. None of us know how long it will be before we can do this again.

Too many memories which makes it too hard to really pick favourites. TaHowever, the Juventus return match must rank top for raw emotion having recovered from 4-1 down and leaving all of us absolutely shattered. Second, would be reaching the Cup Final having previously held the record for losing four semi-finals. Unfortunately, the Final was an anti-climax. The return to normal football in 1946 and having players returning from military service which deprived many of them their best footballing years. Players such as Ronnie Rooke and Jim Taylor my two favourites before the advent of the great Haynes, Jezzard and Robson. How many remember Ossie Evans? Although I only get to the Cottage only occasiionally now I can boast first being taken there in 1940 and after the War often attended all home and reserve matches until I served three years in the Army and resumed upon demob. So put me down for 80 years of supporting the Whites.

Something has got to give sooner or later, and it is now looking like the sooner? Bigboy' graciously reserved judgment on Parker up to 6 games? I would have gone one more up to West Brom, just because we came up with them, and they are 'er' a smidgin on par with us? How long do we give Parker until the inevitable? Some say up to xmas when we open our stockings from santa and surprise-surprise, it's socks and underpants again. My original thoughts was to bring in an experienced coach to work alongside Scott Parker and i came up with names such as the Lobster-man who only the really intelligent fans would know about. That guy from Leipzig is a no chance and not ever now, because Leipzig are flying in the Bundesliga. They are top with Bayern and Dortmund behind them. I just knew we had to move fast to get Nagelsmann before everyone knew he was a genius, (lol). Seriously, it is apparent more than ever that we need a foreign coach to get through the thick skin of our dunce lot. Nigel Pearson or big Sam will not do in the circumstances, because we have too many foreign players who will not get these guys ideas etc.Ralph Hasenhüttl is an Austrian and ex-football player who is at the helm at Southampton and they are doing more than okay in the prem. Southampton have always flirted and danced around in relegation mode every now and again, but they always pull it out the bag and they survive. Southampton also flourish and they beat some of the big boys to show that they can hack it in this division. Our Captain Lord Cairney showed some much needed urgency to score a nice goal after the game was lost. Cairneys attitude and games lately tells me that he can more than hack it in this division contrary to what some fans say about him. At the moment we are becoming like a ship without a rudder, and it is patently obvious that our team needs guidance and tweaking to some aspect. The West Brom game is game 7 and i think Scott Parkers last battalion where he proves that he can turn it around with an astounding win against them. Believe it or not, we seriously are improving, and i like the way we go forward in our last two games. The problem for us now is that the likes of Roy Hodgson is content to sit on his comfy chair and to admire our ball retention and possession knowing that sooner or later we will give them their few chances they need to finish us. We are so predictable now, other teams will give us the ball which we crave but sadly, no goals will come from it. Only a monumental effort against West Brom come the weekend, buttered with monogamous amounts of goals we score, just might give Parker a stay of execution. Maybe lucky 7 is the turning point of our season? Maybe Fulham can go on a run of winning games that we have threatened to do but flattered to decieve? 'Er' COME ON FULHAM'!!!

A lot of talk about the game against WBA being ‘ massive’ I don’t see it that way , they are on a parallel with us ( not very good) and expect them to be with us next season in the Championship. I think there could be a chance of staying up if and its a big if We can get in a new manager with the necessary skill to get the best out of what is a pretty good squad!

I was just trying to figure out who our main rivals for relegation will be, come the end of the season presuming that we will be still down there fighting it out. Being a pessimist, and before the season started, I thought the relegation fight would be between us, Villa, Palace, Southampton, West Ham, Newcastle and Brighton, Leeds and WBA. At present its us, WBA, Sheffield United, Burnley and Brighton. If as expected, Brighton beat WBA, and Spurs beat Burnley, it will probably be whitled down to just WBA, Burnley, Sheffield United and us.Four clubs trying to avoid 3 places. Does anyone on this site, expect any other clubs to be involved.? Leeds, Villa, Southampton, West Ham and Newcastle have really surprised me, as to how well they are doing, and they all look safe for another season

Cannot confirm but local gossip from our training ground, several different sources, Eddie Howe has turned down offer of 2 yr contract with Fulham
Replies
This is the critical problem ....who is there to take over from Parker. Allardyce is the only experienced coach who has experience in getting teams more organised and surviving in this league... a bit like what Hodgson did for us. I think some of our players are not playing for Parker as well as they can as he is seen as too soft....we need a new coach to bring players up to speed ...Allardyce might join if the price was right for reaching at least 17th

I don't feel that Eddie Howe will have the same hunger and love for Fulham as he has for Bournemouth. Howe had a close relationship with Jeff Mostyn and he wrote a tearful passionate letter when leaving Bournemouth. Trust me' you just know in your waters that Howe would be working for Fulham like a love-sick re-bound from Bournemouth. My advice is to leave Howe well alone because he will not have the same love for Fulham if that makes sense?

Some of you may recall that I said that I would reserve my judgement until. We had played six games. We have now reached that target and, unfortunately, I can see little hope of any significant improvement that is necessary to maintain our Premier status. When Parker was appointed in 2018 I stated it was a mistake and that he needed to learn his trade at a much lower level. However, it is unfair to place the blame on his shoulders alone as one cannot expect a Private to be promoted to a Field Marshall and succeed. The root cause lies with the hierarchy starting with our owner and his incompetent son and their failing to understand football. The management of the club is in the hands of yes men who are happy to enjoy large salaries but are not prepared to tell the Khans the truth about how to run the club. It is obvious our team needs time to adjust and bed in by which time it will be too late. We do have some excellent players but we are not a team, we have no leader on the pitch and, in my humble opinion, we need a strict disciplinarian to lick this team into shape and a coaching team with experience. We need to bring in an experience coach, probably from the Continent, who has tactical nous in order to change tactics during a game if need be. As far as I am concerned this season is a write off but we need to change as the Championship may not be so easy the time around.
Replies
A poster below said that we were outclassed by Palace yesterday, but I beg to differ, in fact the stats and the media said that overall we were the better side playing the superior football, but all we are missing is a slice of luck. When we hit the post twice yesterday it seemed it was not going to be our day, and so it proved. Surely we are due to the rub of the green soon. Watching Everton this afternoon, their defence looks no better than ours, giving away two cheap goals, and that seems to be the trend this season. WBA at home is a must win game, as that would give us a real boost, before playing Everton and Leicester.

Agree Brian' we play some nice football with plenty of possession but sadly lacking in goals. Something has got to change? Bigboy has some good points...

Agree with most but can anyone come up with some viable names of coaches we might get that would improve us.... we do need a strong disciplinarian definitely....our team is too naive and soft perhaps reflecting the coach

Brian, whilst you may, technically, be correct, Palace outscored us, which is the real issue
posted by Rm (Guest) - Sunday 25th October 2020, 5:24 PM
 
Before a ball was kicked yesterday, I thought barring injuries this was our strongest 11. What became clear the balance of the side was not right. We were far too narrow and ponderous.I am not advocating the return of Cav but on the right side we had no width and was relying on the Aina. Added to this, pushing Anguissa to the right of the 3 restricted his impact. We had no runners in midfield supporting the forwards and although we kept the ball , it was slow and we rarely threatened. What have we learned ? Unfortunately Cairney, Leminar and Anguissa are not the 3 midfielder's. I think LC, Anguissa and A N other (possibly Reed) for balance is better suited. Maybe giving Kebano a try on the right to stretch the defence. Yesterday was a poor performance but it is interesting our worse performances have all been at home where we try and take the game to the opposition. When we are away we can hit on the break and cause problems. The season is going to be tough, but we still have time to put it right.

We need to find the right person if Parker is to be replaced. We don't want "another Ranieri". I'd rather stick with Parker and accept the inevitable. I was wracking my brain for viable options. Apparently, Raphael Benitez is getting restless in China. Would we like to see him brought in?

I’m with you Bish, Eddie Howe would be a good fit for us. Always seems a nice bloke, very Fulhamish. Also has a good track record on an even smaller budget than ours. How you doing by the way, long time no speak?

Eddie Howe would be great but our ship has sunk too far for him to be interested....unless we offer him massive money. And to the comment suggesting we should leave Parker and accept the inevitable....my view is we have strived so hard to get into this league we need to give it absolutely everything to stay put, that’s what being a good supporter is all about.....never be defeated without an almighty fight....we are lame and whimpering at the moment and those supporters who accept this status quo need to take a long hard look at themselves. Good support is striving for the best.

Is anyone in agreement when I say that I don't think our coaching staff understand the present offside rules? I've watched the 1st goal yesterday several times and it seems to me our back line stepped up leaving Batshuyi miles offside only for the scorer to waltz through for an easy goal....that was all well and good under the old rules when the linesman would've flagged but it's really outdated tactics now.

Our confidence is on the floor and it affects everything the team does. We need a little luck, on another day we could have had 2 goals then it’s a different game/team. We need to throw off the shackles and take chances. At the moment by the time we’ve got to the oppositions area they’ve had time to think about their next car, pick their teeth, organise life insurance, pay their bills online, run to the bog take a dump, fix their hair, sunbathe in summer, call their wife/girlfriend or both, etc, etc.
Replies
Don't like hearing that word Alerdyce mentioned on this board. We don't want fifty yard balls being played all day long, then just trying to rely on set pieces to score. They will probably get rid of Parker, but we have to be careful who we appoint. That chap from Bournemouth seems the best bet, only because of his experience in the Premiership and working at a smallish club. He would have a bit of money to spend, and his team played nice counter-attacking football. Eddie Howe for me.

It's obvious to see the club and management is wrong at Fulham FC. Look at how well players that have been loaned out or sold perform when they exit the club. Harry Arter and Cyrus Christie looked good playing for Forest. Dan Burn, solid player at Brighton, as too is Matt Targett at Villa. Bad management that cant see Mitro is a passenger in the team so effectively Fulham play with only 10 men every time he is fielded. Bad management cant see that Cairney should be instructed to take more long distance shots. Bad management cant see that bringing in low standard players like Ola Aina and Fabricio Agosto contributes nothing to strengthening the team. Rodakand even Bettinelli are stronger more dominent keepers. Lets now get a strong minded Manager into the club that has the ability to inspire a very dejected team and hope they can save another drop from the Premier.
Replies
Forest is a Championship team anyone can look good in the Championship, which is part of the problem, we have Championship players who are struggling to become Premier League ones. We also have some talented young players who will take a time to settle in. Any manager would struggle without time, perhaps more than we have, to get this team to operate at the level need to win games. The gap between the Championship and PL gets wider each year and this team would probably walk the Championship but is not good enough at this level. Scott Parker is doing his best to get them to the level they need to be. Finding a new manager now who could get us to win games consistently would take a very special person who does not exist.

Marcus, what is the alternative to Mitrovic? He's the best striker we've had for years but right now he's being expected to do too much upfront on his own. He is the last player any Fulham fan should be picking on...he has over 30 goals in 38 international appearances which proves his worth...get off his back, we don't have anybody else. We have a dearth of midfielders which Parker tries to accommodate, that's the real problem...square pegs into round holes, why on earth sign Loftus-Cheek when we needed another forward? What does he possibly add to the equation?
posted by NRL (Guest) - Sunday 25th October 2020, 9:54 AM
 
The Time is Now- Arter, Christie and Knockhart didn't particularly impress most of the time in the Championship under Parker. That is the point. The coaching is letting Fulham down.
posted by Chas (Guest) - Sunday 25th October 2020, 12:12 PM
 
Parker has started to ramble at press calls, no idea what he is on about, said we must stop walking the ball in this is the prem!!! more goals are scored inside the box than outside over season ,so that theory is pointless, most good strikers still try to walk ball in eg rashford marahz townsend,for a few, one more dribble then i will shoot usually when they can see keepers eyelashes !!!.May be a bit more training as to were the net is when having shooting practise, may be a coach who can show how the midfield connects to the strikers,we have half prem, half championship players, mix them up and its pure chaos.How long can ffc carry parker and his ideas? he has 3 year contract so it aint cheap to pay him of but we lose more if we drop again .
posted by the real arch bishop (Guest) - Sunday 25th October 2020, 1:17 PM
 
The coaching is letting us down and so is the management. What decent manager would come to the club when they have to put up with Tony Kahn undermining them by sending a Twitter to the fans apologising for losing games. Parker is a rookie manager who will put up with that however even he now has the look of someone who wants out. Again and again it all boils down to the management and Tony Kahn.

Parker will never walk with the sort of contract he has 15m over 3 years what club would pay this incompetent even a quarter,no Tony get in a professional and give him full control over transfers.As previously stated it would cost a lot more if we are relegated.

1) Parker, the top job has just come too early for him in his career 2) The squad is below par for the league caused by a poor transfer strategy 3) TK as Director of Football is not performing well and cannot be expected to do the right thing and sack Parker early enough to give us a chance this season 4) The club is becoming unattractive for a decent coach, even Allardyce might turn us down. So, there are a number of problems to overcome now, a further failure is to do nothing. I trust (well not sure)TK and Mackintosh have already approached a number of possible coaches as a replacement for Parker and will probably leave it until the next international break which I believe is leaving it too late. And yes if we win against WBA everyone will think it is ok when it won’t be...it will just delay the inevitable. I’ve not heard a coherent case put forward for keeping Parker on other than not having faith that TK will appoint a suitable replacement. Yes, it is a risk but at least give us a fighting chance, we are a ship sinking fast and it is distressing to watch from afar.

I coach at a local team, who play low level football. What I see is from FFC is a possession based team who work the ball from left to right, to create openings.This is fine, excepting runners from midfield have to penetrate the opponents defence to create space. The delivery from wide has to be good, Robinson good player he may become, does not do that job well enough. Bryan would be a better option for this, but is defensively weaker. Palace we all know will sit and use the break, with Zaha their possible match winner. When defending one of the midfield players has to limit his ability to receive the ball and double up with the full back in wide positions. This did not happen which ultimately cost us the match.From free kicks no attempt is made to use a long ball into their box, just sideways passing to retain possession. Our main striker is not very mobile and unable to close down defenders, but is good in the air and around the box with good feet. So in effect our main goal threat is working little angles from our possession through a packed defence. Shooting from distance is not encouraged, or playing a quick ball, as possession could be lost. This makes scoring against good defenders very difficult as the aerial route to Mitrovic is lost through lack of quality delivery. No protection is provided to our defenders, against runners from the opposistion midfeild if Reed is not playing. This is what I see as a second rate coach, possession for the sake of it, without any clear direction will not win games. What does a professional coach see 3 points every time. Conclusion with current team and coach 18-20 points maximum possible. Relegation certainty.
Replies
Add to all of the above.....no in game intelligence, no tactical awareness to the changing risks, slow thinking, slow reactions, slow passing, poor unimaginative set plays, predictable player shape when in possession, shambolic player shape when we haven’t got the ball, no on field leadership

After watching MOTD, this evening every team, and I include Sheffield United seem streets ahead of us in every department, in fact although I am loth to say it, it looks like we are being outclassed by every team in this division, and it will be far better for all of us to be back where we belong in the Championship. A few of the honest Fulham supporters are saying and quote "let's enjoy the ride", well so far, apart from leading at Sheffield United last week, there has been nothing in this ride to enjoy at all, in fact every weekend's results are making me really miserable, and I am already looking forward to this pergertury to be over.

Ken . It’s not about being a good supporter, you can tell by the Tone of the letters on our site that we all love the club but that doesn’t mean we can’t vent our frustration on our problems. If you are ok with the shambolic performance week after week that’s fine ,but it must be plain for all to see that we have massive Problems here and like any other fan feel that a change of how the club is being run is long overdue. Having said all that it’s no good changing the manager unless you can get one who knows what is required , and are there any out there willing to take on the job?

Fake news, unfortunately, and knowing TK guides his decisions based on statistics, it doesn't bode well to be honest. Would be nice seeing Marcelino as a coach. Good CV in Spain and well known dressing room motivator (which we desperately need). If TK wasn't a megalomaniac, he would be wise to hire a good Director of Football, Like Ralf Rangnick (currently unemployed) or Luis Campos (amazing job in Lille), but that's wishful thinking. I suspect another point in WBA and that will be it until January.

It’s not even about the model. If you want to stay up, you have to build from the back. Aina, Adarabioyo, and Robinson are 24, 23 and 23 respectively. He’s expecting young players who’ve never done it before at this level to stop the world’s best. Are there any other EPL teams where three of the back four are this young and inexperienced? I doubt it. These players will grow over the season, but they aren’t ready for the test. Parker is going to the scapegoat but Khan’s buying is the issue.

I felt we needed at least 5 points from these 3 games after the break and we're not going to get them. Parker showed tactical nous in the playoffs, but he's not learning quickly enough. We could bring in a mentor to work alongside him, but it might be best to make a clean break. What I saw from the 3 players playing for Nottingham Forest last night who were with us last season, emphasis ed the difference an experienced manager can make. If we do make the change, we need to get it right. And the Khans' track record is poor to terrible, with one exception (ignoring Parker who probably was the sensible choice at the time).

If the Khans panic again, it’ll be a long dark season. I’m not a Parker fan, but he deserves 19 matches, time for the new players to fit in. Anguissa, Lemina, Lookman, Robinson... these are all good buys and upgrades. We really missed Tete. Aina is Cyrus Christie 2.0, and was the weak link again today. I wanted SP to try Bryan on the right at halftime - Bryan can cut in and deliver a cross - which Mitro was desperate for. What has to be clear now is that we need TC closer to goal, where he played under Slav. He funnels the ball into the right areas in a deeper role, but it’s not enough from him, we need asssist and goals. His run into the box nearly came off. I don’t know what Parker can do with the defense at this point, that first Palace goal was so easily conceded.

Tom Cairney's goal right at the end just sums up our day today. Cairney has all the talent going to make him successful and prolific in the prem, but for reasons unknown or we could argue, reasons we know? He just cannot shake more than a leg with urgency or anything else. At 2-0 down we should be showing more urgency. Back in the Championship, Fulham did always up the tempo and hunt down a goal, but for some unknown reasons, we lack any of that. All the experts are saying that we play some nice football which we know we do, but we are too nice, too tame! There is no bite to our game, and we just can't walk the ball in the net in this league. Parker brings Kamara on to add bite, but it was the wrong kind of bite that was needed. There are far worse cases of sendings off i could reel off here but what's the use of that now. Kamara was sent on with a long list of notes from Parker which is not what we need in a confusing crisis on the pitch. What the note should have said was to 'pull your head out of your .rse and up the tempo and go for goal. Giving a teachers note to Kamara is like telling a bear to play nicely. Send Kamara on by all means, but tell the big guy to up his pace and take some shots etc, etc. To stick another striker out there at right wing is negative. Where was Kebano in all this nonsense? Kamara's only crime was his clumsiness, and it just sums up our day again. When you need all the experience like an Ancelotti we can't get any anywhere.This is the reason why Scott Parker is losing friends fast. Any clown who thinks that Kamara is the cause of this mess, are not real football people and they know very little about football. We might as well say that half the team shouldn't be playing in this superior league. That is a nonsense saying. Roy Hodgeson quietly sat down and he was more than happy for Fulham to have most of the posession. Tick that detail off Scott Parker' that is the only thing we get right every week now, more ball possession than the opposition! The only detail this Fulham team needs, is tweaking. Can Scott Parker do it? Does he even know how to tweak this Fulham team? The writing is on the wall if we lose to WBA. Sadly, the final curtain is near! Hey' Toms goal was special though, but 'so what'!!!!!!!!!

I hope we loose to WBA,so that it may hasten the departure of that managerial nonce PARKER

It does often seem that changing the manager has an immediate, if sometimes short-term, beneficial effect on a team. However, it need to be the right choice and the evidence of 2 seasons ago suggests Fulham don't make right choices.

There is nothing to shake up. How many Premier League matches did Ola Aina, Antonee Robinson and Tosin Adaribayo have between them going into this season? What is their average age? It’s three inexperienced boys plus a too-slow Ream against the world’s best... never a fair fight. We strengthened in midfield and in attack with Lookman, but our backline gives us no chance. We needed a Scott Dann type, a gritty character with some hard-won understanding of the game. No manager is turning that backline into an unbreakable wall. There are slight adjustments SP can and should make. But he doesn’t have the horses, let’s be honest.

WBA and Fulham came up together, and we have invested more than WBA. It is imperative that we gain a favorable result against the Brummies. Scott Parker will know that feeling in his bones. By the way Kuyne' it would be nice if you acknowledge that Anguissa was a good acquisition back in the squad?

How many more times are we to endure football proffesionals state that fulham pass to much with no finish, easily hit on the break. BBC pundat said ffc look completely out of their depth at this level, SP playing style with the players we have wont work. Games are won and lost in the penalty area not by pretty football in you own half or on the halfway line. We have some good players unfortuneatly a manager without experience of how to play to the players strentgh he has rather than making them fit into his way that clearly does not work.

OK....we already know that we will be lucky to get 15 points this season, possibly nearer 10. But let’s not kid ourselves; Parker is a problem, but getting rid of him will change nothing, except unsettle the whole club, as not a single manager in the world could keep us up. Our team is simply not good enough and we should Bank the money, regroup next year and rebuild, with the benefit of a new stand, money in the bank, and experience

We are bad but we are not doomed! Not sure what is the solution. New manager. New tactics. Both. I don’t know but with 32 games to go, you cannot day we are doomed. I don’t like Pearson but he has a way to get points in the premier league team. This team is as talented as the Watford team last season and Pearson would have kept them up if he had a few more games or even allowed to finish the season. We have a new stadium next season the owners know we must cut the ribbon for a premier league game and not against Lincoln city or equivalent!! Maybe time to pull the trigger.

Whats wrong with unsettling a club that “will be lucky to get 15 points, possibly nearer 10”. Needs a bit of “unsettling” I’d have thought!!. Palace lost their first 7 games in 2017-18, and a change of manager (Woy) turned their futures round, and they had a much weaker squad than we currently have. Make no mistake, we have good enough players to say up, excluding Kamara, whose tackle today was neither deliberate or vindictive, but simply the result of a clumsy player out of his depth. TK has strengthened the squad, but the lack of pace, threat up front, and defensive shape under pressure, have barely changed.

Disagree slightly. I think there’s nothing wrong with the squad, certainly good enough to keep us up. Problem is the game they play is simply too naive at this level, and pressure is going to build on SP pretty soon. A loss against WBA could make things difficult for him.
posted by phild - Saturday 24th October 2020, 5:27 PM
 
Our midfield is one of the problems why we cannot defend. Tactically we were a mess again in the first goal. For all his potential and power and presence, Anguissa lacks tactical prowess at times. Either that or he does not understand what Parker wants of him defensively. We basically trotted out without a holding midfielder again... Also Aina isn’t quite the defender unfortunately. And then Mitro and Loftus have been a bit of a waste both goinrg fwd and backwards unfortunately. The quality is reasonably OK, we clearly do not have the depth but have 13-14 useful guys now. If Parker cannot figure it out, someone else must. Now or next week latest... Marcelino would great, else maybe Marco Silva, Howie(?), Jardim, even Montella (knows the club and evena has a song to his name... Viceeenzoooo, oh oh, Montella, oh oh oh oh, he comes deom Italy...). Or bring back Slavisa!

Those tactics were never going to work against a Roy team and Parker must have known that. Man City change tactics and players positions a handful of times each game which confuses most team. You must have a plan to beat the team you play not just keep playing in the same way and hope it comes good, it won't.

Pass!.. Pass!... Pass!... That seems to be our game giving the opponents to pack their goal area. All our opponents have to do is wait until we lose the ball then spring-board into a counter attack and in most cases scare the daylights out of our weak defence or score... How about Shoot!.. Shoot.. Shoot... and scare the living daylights out of the opponents for a change... Cairney: I am afraid is to safe.. Should take a risk instead of safe passing... Ream: Gets caught out in defence at some point in the game...

Whoopee I've just heard that we have scored, that's good news but a bit too late, but better news is that Kamara has been sent off, but what was he doing on the pitch in the first place. I hope that it was a straight red, as at least he will not be playing for 3 matches. All you mugs who paid £14.99 to watch that rubbish, must have money to burn, you would have been better off if you did what I did and put £15 on Palace to win. It is with a heavy heart I will collect my money, but the result was pretty obvious I'm afraid.

Did anyone see the Wet Spam v Men sitty match. The WH manager worked out passing from the back against MC's high press was suicide as was their normal passing game. So the keeper always kicked the ball long and the ball was crossed into the box as often as possible. Your tactics should be based on who you play not a stubborn one size fits all tactic. Mitro is starved of chances while we dominate the ball to no effect.

I have some terrible disappointments and sadness this year, but here I was, hoping against hope that at least my Fulham would be there to cheer me up at last, but things do to with our club, like not signing a striker, are quite depressing, and our results are a complete disaster to date.

Saw the game TTIN and agree with you about the Moyes plan. The difference is they have a hard working centre forward who is quick and backed up when on the offence. We could not play this way because we are slow. If we lose the ball in the opposition half we can’t get back to stop the counter.

If we had got ten decent crosses into the box Mitro would score from six of them. We never cross we always pass on the ground which when you are facing two banks of four rarely works. The only way to best a RH team is to round them not through them.

It was a great goal by Cairney, but we are too soft, too nice. It did look like if we played another 1 1/2 we wouldn't score. We have got to take our half chances and not chugg on at 2-0. If no result against WBA next week? Scott Parker?????

At least Kamara can't play for 3 matches. That's a bonus.

Thought three matches was for violent conduct. This is just one isn’t it?

The match was lost before AK came on, but that was a spiteful tackle and was definitely a red . Thought we were off the pace from the start. Roy knew exactly how to beat us. Overall we were awful, absolutely no pace in the final third, Mitrovic yet again not at it. AK is not suited for VAR, stupid to tackle like that with cameras all over the place.

I would give Kamara a season ban for impersonating a footballer. A brainless moron describes him better.

MWK you know very little about football. Kamara cost us points in 1 game this year so far when he should have scored point-blank! Mitro has cost us more than a few points so far and counting! Keep up the good work by laying into Kamara and ignore the chaos going on around you. If this was WW2 we would have no chance with that kind of know-how. Some players can impact a game coming on for a few minutes and some can't. Kamara cannot undo our inability to put that ball in the net in the time required to save the game, and on the wing???

Owen what the F*** are you on? So you can express your opinions and others can't because your so knowledgeable in all football matters. Who mentioned about Kamara and Mitrovic costing the team points, I didn't. I agree Kamara is an impact player and proved it today by getting sent off.
posted by mwk (Guest) - Saturday 24th October 2020, 9:37 PM
 
Sorry mwk, i got my thingies muddled up. I agree that Kamara is an impact player and his time on the pitch is very minimal to our state of play. Kamara has been playing in the completely wrong position out wide to have any serious effect other than crossing the ball into Mitrovic or cutting in. We are trying that over on the opposite side to little effect also. It is the right time now for somebody more knowledgeable than myself to come on here and explain in football terms on the reasons why we are losing every week. I can guarantee you this, it certainly isn't Kamara's fault for all his 'er' faults. I just think that some people don't understand football properly.

I understand the desire to play possession football. i understand it. But surely the strategy should be you play possession football in the 1st and 2nd third but when you get to the final third, possession football doesn't work unless you have fantastic players like they have at man City. Even Arsenal a few years ago struggled to pass into the goal. WHY WHY WHY. The team now look totally demotivated and have no idea what to do next!

If you want to be a coach learn your trade in the lower leagues and if you are any good you will get your chance in the Premier League ...that’s how it should have been .....we have inexperienced players why on earth did Khan not understand this won’t work with an inexperienced coach as well
Replies
Parker talked about how he had to give the team their confidence back after the last stint in the premier league , well he’s not doing much for their confidence now , clueless

If Parker knows he’s taken the club as far as he can he needs to say so and walk away. I don’t see how he thinks we are staying in the division

Should have put it away (I'll forgive him). But, if he had gone down and forced VAR, would it have been a pen? Don't see any difference between the defender getting there late and standing on his foot, to then pen Mitro gave away last week. Surely it's late and a follow through in both cases. Only difference is he didn't go down. No mention of it on the commentary either. Maybe im missing something.

Players ocassionally go on OFF and this is just where Mitro is at the moment.After last weeks shambles he should have burnt his boots these 45 mins. He is isnt chasing balls, defending nor is he anywhere near our headless crosses.Why not bring Kamara on.He will have a different approach and at the end of the day its just a change of tactics.
Replies
For me, it's SPs tactics making him look very average. He performs on the international stage every time so don't think it's about stepping up to a higher level. Agree he lacks confidence and is just not on form. Maybe a rest would do him well. Not going to jump on the mitro out bandwagon any time soon though.
posted by O David (Guest) - Saturday 24th October 2020, 3:55 PM
 
David' nothing to do with Scott Parker's tactics. Wew are playing some good football and we don't look out of our death. Mitrovic has got to get his head out of his backside and stop feeling 'Sorry' for himself, get a grip and just get on with it. Nothing wrong in Scotts tactics, Palace are not that good...

posted by John (Guest) - Saturday 24th October 2020, 4:49 PM
 
Mitro doesn't do enough for me off the ball but that's up to scott to sort out which he isn't. Mitro had no service at all to score in this match so I cant blame him for that, one half chance when it was pretty much a 50-50 ball with the defender
posted by Pez (Guest) - Saturday 24th October 2020, 5:22 PM
 
Mitro's half chances are 'er' mounting up every week now pez, and he is on the pitch much more than 'er' i wont say his name, and he doesn't even get the chance to play in a proper strikers position...

We are tactically slow....who to blame? It has to lay with Parker. We have to improve.....quicken our thinking....we have the players to compete with Palace.

Did any of us see anything last season that gave any inkling that Parker was capable of coaching at this level? He will never ever make it as a top level coach. He’s a pound shop appointment
posted by Rm (Guest) - Saturday 24th October 2020, 3:32 PM
 
Ridiculous first half, they look like scoring every time they come forward. Even if they are outnumbered going forward (4of our defenders vs Zaha) More possession for possession sake 72% hit the post twice but nothing on target. Just think we are cursed in the prem. first 6 minutes was amazing - palace couldn’t get a toe on the ball but I knew first chance palace got they would score
posted by Pez (Guest) - Saturday 24th October 2020, 3:53 PM
 
We are so slow and we do not want to shoot, when we get in position to have a shot we pass backwards. Only Lookman and Mitro have had a go.
posted by Baz (Moderator) - Saturday 24th October 2020, 3:54 PM
 
Guy's' we have done enough so far in this game to be at least 1-1 going in. Mitrovic should have slotted in the re-bound of the Lookman shot. Lookman posting twice? Their goal was a classic track your man back and we should be seeing it by now. We are playing some nice football without the goals. We are just not clinical enough! Let's see more shots on goal from half chances by Cairney who is playing well, but this isn't a walk in the park. More urgency please from our boys. We are the one's who are 1-0 down!!!!!!
