It’s true he was missing from Brighton squad for today’s game but it looks like barring any personal terms that can’t be agreed, we will hopefully announce his signing Monday!! COYW

It's getting a bit crowded on the right wing with Ayite, Kamara, Cavaliero and now Knochaert.. Any of them want to play right back or perhaps centre half I wonder.

Captain Fantastic has grabbed a brace to turn it around against a strong Brighton side (still 15 mins to go) I am honestly just as glad he renewed his contract, as when Mitro did, it’s a massive statement of our intent this coming season - let’s hope he does as well as our play-off winning season!! COYW
Replies
MITRO was a waste of space. AK well made the second goal. And they played every other sub except MATT. some one said on here we have a very good front line and will score goals. Back line was sh''t . Mawson needs to stop back pedalling into our box. and give there front line chances to score.

I think Chelsea missed Diego Kosa far more than they did Jose Mourhino, but go from Athletico Madrid to Wolverhampton? He's not the sort of man you'd like to meet in a dark tunnel down s.e. London late at night, but in your forward line he would always get goals. How do you think he compares with Aleksanda Mitrovic ?

So what sort of men would you prefer to meeting these tunnels

According to a report from Brighton, Knockeart is having a medical at Fulham today. Now that would make a few people sit up and take notice. Being a Brighton season ticket holder myself and I am both gobsmacked for Brighton fans, and over the moon for us Fulham fans, if it's going to happen. COYW
Replies
ANTHONY KNOCKAERT is closing in on a one-year loan move to Fulham. SunSport understands the Brighton winger, 27, underwent a medical at the Cottagers on Friday night. The Frenchman will miss Albion’s friendly on Saturday – ironically against Fulham – as he looks to complete a switch which can be turned permanent for £10million next summer. If the relegated Londoners opt against buying him, then the Seagulls will be due a £4m payment for this term’s loan. Tres Bien Mon Amie

Agree people keep saying about bringing in right back but same people moan we ain't bringing in the young players. As for centre half Mawson if kept fit should be dominant in this division it's getting the right player along side him.

We definately need a goalkeeper to replace bettinelli, a right back, a centre half and another midfielder then I think we will have a decent team especially if Knockaert signs

Don't know if you recall but way back in the 60's after the WC, George Cohen broke his leg badly and was out of football for some time and he spent quite a few weeks recovering in St George's Hospital in Tooting. Me and my mate, Pete Myers whose family ran the Running Horse Pub in Leatherhead at the time, decided we would go and see him and to cheer him up. So off we went in our macs, with our black and white stiped scarves proudly round our necks, and we each had a matchday programme for what we hoped was his autograph. When we got to the hospital we asked at Reception where Mr Cohen was. "He's in a private ward" came the response " but you cant't go in there". Pete and I earnestly explained that we were his nepwhews (FFS!!) and that it was important we saw him, also we had come a long way to get to the get to see Uncle George. We were obviously so convincing, and together with the fact that the receptionsit was very kind (if a trifle naiive) told us what room he was in. We got to his room and with a big gulp and intake of breath we knocked on the door. "Come in" said a voice, and in we went. The sight that confronted us is as clear today as it was then. GC was in bed with his leg up in the air on like a sort of pulley, and sitting to his right was none other than Chairman Trinder resplendent in his trilby. "Hi" said GC, "and who may I ask are you?" We explained that we were Fulham fans and desperately wanted to meet him and to wish him well. "My God you have cheek and nerve" said GC and both he Mr Trinder started to grin. "Well done fellas and fair play but time for you to go". With that we bade him good luck and get well soon but not before he signed our programmes as we had hoped. Needless to say we left with huge grins and Pete and I hugged each other because we had done it! I will never forget that day - this is what being a Fulham fan is all about. So what's your story, I'm sure we'd all love to know?

Good story MB. Back in those days I attended Henry’s Holiday Camp, a couple of years behind George but he was a bit of a hero at the school, infact was our school captain. Brother Peter was nearer my age and knew him pretty well. We used to go down the Cottage during lunchtime and would get to chat to the players and on occasion to Tommy Trinder. Remember one day a few of us sitting in his big blue Bentley, like we were old mates or family. His chauffeur didn’t look too chuffed.He always seemed to have time for a chat with the kids, no matter how brief and in those days he was a seriously big star. Good old school bloke. Met George and his wife Daphne after many years at the unveiling of his statue, the 66 charity, and shared a few stories about Pete. He told my son, for me, that his name was going to be on his statue, as I was keeping it as a surprise, and would be part of Craven Cottage for many years to come. Needless to say, there were a few damp eyes:)) My name’s on there too, so that when he takes his kids down in years to come, he’ll be able to share a few memories too, like we all do:))

THAT was typical of George Cohen and I must say Tommy "You lucky people" Trinder. Those were the days and Tottenham wanted our best player even then, but did not get him.

Almost certain that Bobby Charlton was vice captain Massa. Think that’s when we gained our reputation as a true family club Rich. Diminished a bit in these modern times, but still think we retain that aura, what with the uniqueness of the ground and the quality of our fans and genuine sense of fair play. Long may in last in these, money is the sole objective, times. Hoping for a competitive and entertaining season, think we have the basis of a good Championship side, let’s hope Scott Parker is up to the challenge.

Well MST you asked me to write again so here goes, regarding sat morning pics and the old wild west, the story you deleted was about a wagon train that was attacked in the 1800 s with 1,100 people on board ,all were killed except two kids aged 6and 8 they were rescued at such times and married in later years they had one child who grew up to be butch Cassidy.And in ref to the old west if you recall we all cheered the guys in white hats and booed the guys in black hats as they swapped bullets by the hundreds , a total Hollywood myth!!! bullets were very very expensive and would never be wasted , there logic was quite simple kill from 5 feet or in the back that way no bullets wasted , hence hickock, in the back by jack mcall , james again in back by cousin bob ford, at the battle of ok coral holly wood version all was sweet and simple , actually is was not the fight took place in various stock yards, and the end product was wyatt earp was indited for murder,but got of, some said he shot in back some said self defence, he was a bit of a villain, the del boy of boot hill.Also most cowboys could not hit a cows arse with a banjo, and I believe the usa anthem was written by an English naval officer on board a ship in the middle of a a battle possibly the civil war .Any one remember the little guy at the red hall with his bunch of keys bigger that him, with his white cape benny hill style he was in charge .

While nearly all of the clubs in the Championship are strengthening their squads, what do we do at Fulham, we sit on our damn hands as usual. I optimistically buy a couple of papers every morning, with the constant hope that I will at least read about some sort of rumours surrounding Fulham's new signings, but as usual it's zilch. Alright we signed some bloke from Wolves, who may or not may be a help, but he doesn't exactly fill me with excitement. Are we going to have another last minute panic buy as is Fulham's usual way of doing things. I thought that it might be a bit different under Scotty. Surely we should have our new squad available during pre-season planning, otherwise it will be a complete waste of time. As someone has already pointed out, we haven't even scored a bloody goal yet, so we need another striker, and quick.
Replies
At least it could be an interesting 2/3 weeks before the transfer window is slammed shut! We already just saw Seri off. We will probably see Sessengnon, anguissa, Fonte and Christie leaving and hopefully we will buy the chap from Bristol city, new striker, new right back and maybe centre back as well!

It was a really interesting post on the Wild West and Saturday morning pictures and some of the replies were also interesting. I’d love it if you could please post again. On the subject though Saturday morning pictures for a tanner brings back good memories of being an ABC minor and watching the man in the iron mask, Zorro, Woody Woodpecker, Flash Gordon, etc. Even remember the song that started “we are the boys and girls well known as the minors of the ABC”....

Used to get live groups as a bonus. That was on Shepherds Bush Green, Odeon I think, maybe Essoldo, and mustn’t forget pictures Sunday afternoon, now that’s where we used to meet the girls.

Our cinema was in the Harrow Road (Paddington - I lived in Marylands Road).

The bloke upstairs from us used to like a beer and he would leave his empty bottles outside the flat whereby we would steal a few and get the money back which meant we could buy ice cream and stuff.

Only one of us would pay though and they would open the emergency exit on the toilet door to let the others in for free.

We never ate the ice cream; just threw it over the balcony onto unsuspecting girls - you'd never get a girlfriend that way these days LOL....

I seldom post on the board but am an avid reader snd enjoy the banrer. However, I sm surprised that everyone who responded to my comments on the Monarchy was so anti and apparently wanted a Republic which I consider would prove a disaster. Surely someone supports my view especially Arizona.

The "debate" has been going on since Oliver Cromwell's time Biggy, with the minority republicans tending to have the loudest voice. Your point of view represents the majority, else England would be a republic by now, something for which the vast majority apparently have no appetite. My loyalty remains to the Crown, no matter where I live. Bottom line - this is a football club fan site, great for off-topic one-liners but hardly a forum for serious debate. Enjoy the banter, it's free and mostly entertaining, even if you don't agree with it. Rgds.

Serri only on loan with an option to buy,should reduce our wage bill a bit though,looking at our current squad we’re looking pretty decent,last time we got relegated cleared out virtually all our best players with the exception of Scott Parker,fancy us to finish in the top 6 would be really surprised if we’re not back in the premier within 2 years with a fabulous stadium.

Jean Michaël Seri from different reports was supposed to have cost us between £22 - £27 million and wages £35,000 a week. I suspect if we are very lucky he will play well enough for someone else to want to take him on loan to pay this wage for another year. Otherwise we will have to subsidise his salary for him to play at another team for his final couple of seasons. Oh and of course he will start playing brilliantly for some team in his last season like Mitroglou did.

Seri will need to pull his socks up if he wants a move away from the Cottage. I seriously doubt that we will permanently offload Seri because he really isn't that brilliant these days. Apart from a few flashy videos, and a nice goal of the month against Burnley, there really is not that much going for our Seri. He may find Turkey to his liking in that players around him can get more from him. I still say that some players off the ball need to get more involved by seeking and getting the ball and basically working harder. Funnily enough, it would be to Seri's advantage if he had stayed with Fulham this season with the likes of Caravallo coming in. We need midfielders who can keep hold of the ball and distribute it intelligently. I have heard bad things about our midfield which is still messing up. Seri needs to sit down and think about his move and his overall game in particular.

If we go up this season, and Seri comes back. However he plays, he is not going to be popular with the fans or players.

Gary Lineker is hardly Jimmy Hill on MOD is he? Is he worth £1.7 mill for that. plus plus other appearance fees. He is totally against our country becoming independent, having own parliament and justice system and wants to give Brussels £39 billion for absolutely nothing. If he wants to become a politician why does he not shut and put for election like any decent candidate? Our former player Danny Murphy is excellent and should move over take Lineker out but I suppose his is not PC enough for the totally bais BBC. Agree?

Seems there are 2 things being discussed here that is clouding the issue. Gary Lineker is paid for what the BBC commercially values his presenting skill at. It seems strange how this is worth this amount but then so is what other media and sports people get paid but I presume they wouldn't get it if it could be avoided. The second bit is when some one like Gary Lineker has a public platform and uses that for something outside of there expertise. I am all for him commenting on anything political relating to football or sport in general but not using his position to influence his audience with his political view. you would never get Sir David Attenborough giving his views on anything other than environmental issues but then again Sir David Attenborough(the only one I call a sir) is a gent.

In my opinion and that of many others the Monarchy brings stability and has proved successful in this country for centuries. Yes you can quote the mistresses etc of previous monarchs but that was due to the times that they lived in and, apparently, was accepted. Where things went wrong was the behaviour of Charles to a young teenager which was despicable. For an heir to the throne to continue his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles when recently married and with two young children I found unacceptable. However, I digress, and whilst I agree that fringe royalty, especially Andrew and his two work shy sponging daughters have no credence and should not enjoy their privileged life style I am prepared to defend the Monarchy. For those old enough to remember the War you will recall that King George and Queen Elizabeth were urged to relocate to Canada and refused to go and stayed. Buckingham Palace was bombed and the King said " I can now look my fellow countrymen in the eye" and he and the Queen toured the East End and many bombed areas raising morale and providing inspiration for the whole country. If you don't believe me ask your parents or grandparents and listen to what that have to say. As for the poster who stupidly stated Russia had the right idea in 1917 I can only say he should look at that country now which is ruled by a despot who is also probably the richest person in the world with a fortune estimated in excess of £300 billion. I suggest he tries living there for a few years. For anyone wishing for our beloved country to become a republic think again and the actual cost and the possibility of becoming a dictatorship somewhere along the line. You are all entitled to your opinion but before you implement some of your radical ideas speak to your grandparents who may have fought in the War and be careful what you wish for.

You are perfectly correct apart from stating it was the Queen mother which would have been Queen Mary as opposed to Queen Elizabeth. Judging from your comments on inherited status I therefore assume you are against parents leaving weath to their children or children accepting wealth whether it be hundreds or millions of pounds. I have known people with similar Marxiists views until it affects them and when they come in to money, whether it is the lottery, pools or a big win on the horses then it is a different matter. That type of view denies entrepreneurs from wanting to achieve success, such as Dyson, Sugar and many others. How sad!

Geezer, I fully agree with your comments which are equally applicable to the French Revolution. That is not the point thst I am making. Our country is a rock of stability and I for one believe that the Monarchy has done a marvellous job in assisting in this matter. Stslin was responsible for around 20 million death and Hitler was no better and that is probably why they sgreed a peace treaty in 1940. Suppression of free speech, religion snd many other basic rights is always the main ingredient for these regimes. Yes I understand why Hitlet and Lenin succeeded but at what cost? For me I am happy to live in England and proud to have been born and bred in Fulham

Personally I cannot for the life of me understand how we have reached the 21st century and we have not evolved enough to realise that Kings Queens Princes and Princesses belong to a distant past where people did not know any better. They are about as realistic to normal thinking people as dragons and fairies yet a large proportion of society are still prepared to tug their forelocks and look upon these people as some form of superior beings. If Henry 8th had been an ordinary pleb history would have viewed him quite correctly as a serial killer. Instead he is seen as some jack the lad who was possibly a bit touched but very rarely is he criticised. I am honest enough to admit that had I been around years ago when to criticise royalty would incur severe penalties including execution I would have been pathetically queuing in the rain with the best of the sycophants. The point is we don’t have to anymore unless of course we are part of the inner circle, then as Lady Di would find out to her cost we would seriously need to watch our backs. Big boy you very kindly state that everyone is entitled to an opinion on the matter you probably won’t like it but this is mine and has been for more years than I can remember. I am not saying a republic is the answer or wishing to invoke radical changes, the monarchy and those that have interests in them are far too powerful and civil war is a nightmare that nobody needs. It would just be useful if people could worship them without trying to force their views on those who do not wish to play the subservient game. Some still believe that the royals were actually chosen by God to represent them when the truth is actually far more brutal.

Eddie, the UK is a Constitutional Monarchy as you know. The Crown has no influence, direct or otherwise, on the conduct of the country's internal or external affairs. You made the point that the general populace no longer have to stand in the rain and tug their forelocks, and that has been the case for several centuries, but many CHOOSE to do so of their own violition, either by toeing the line in person or by proxy in pubs or in front of the television. Their silent acceptance of the status quo shouldn't be construed as subservience, the bottom line being most people quite like and respect the senior royals. More importantly, royalty and its status is very, very low on their list of things to worry about. It's simply a matter of no import to the vast majority. The armed forces are a different case which recognises obedience to the government on one hand and loyalty to the crown on the other. Given the average distain in the military for politicians the prospect of tension between obedience and loyalty helps to keep extreme political ambitions in check. If you don't want a republic, as you said, and you're not proposing radical change, then the status quo prevails and we're left with our personal views. Personally speaking, only HM and the direct line hold significance for me. The rest are of little or no concern. I'm much more concerned however as to whether Tim Ream can regain his jump height, a very real and obvious problem. Rgds.
posted by The Arizonan - Thursday 18th July 2019, 1:50 AM
 
Arizonan I think you under estimate the level of deference toward the monarchy certainly in my part of the world which is edge of east London bordering Essex. My main problem is that many monarchists seem to think it is their solemn duty to guide non believers across from the dark side. Whenever state occasions arrive with the inevitable overblown coverage I try my very best to avoid them and keep my own council until the event finally goes away. This is never enough for most royalists some quite aggressive in their approach others more benign but unconsciously patronising. A debate when finally provoked by these people always ends with me standing my ground and the perpetrators quite often angrily stating Well if that’s your attitude why don’t you go and live in Russia. Always a well made and informed statement to firmly put me in my place. It is quite annoying when people make pro royalty statements claiming that they speak for everybody this is clearly not the case. I will not be debating this subject further interesting as the subject may be. Football is much more interesting than any of the stuff we can do very little about and I am sure Tim Ream will be back to his best next season.

I don't doubt you're right in what you say Eddie, just that I've never experienced it. There are blowhards everywhere on both sides, all best ignored. As for Tim Ream, he'll benefit if Betts is back between the sticks but I think his back injury, and his age, will tell against him. Hope not, as he's a nice bloke by all accounts.

Arizonan I think you are right that we need Betts back between the sticks. Tim Ream certainly comes across as a nice guy and was a major factor in our promotion push. The guy appeared to be truly awful when he first joined us but in my humble opinion became our most improved performer as he gradually found his form and will prove a real asset next season. Opinion is divided probably based on his earlier efforts, also he is still prone to the odd gaffe or two. This is not really surprising over the course of our Premier League campaign as the supporting cast did not exactly inspire confidence.
posted by Eddie (Guest) - Thursday 18th July 2019, 8:11 PM
 
I agree with you both with regards to Betts, and I think he got a bit of a rough deal last year, albeit I understand he did have injury problems(?). By far and away our best keeper in recent years. Do know that Ream was a totally different player with Betts in goal rather than that clown Button, who was truly awful. Would make James Bond nervous. Betts just brings that bit of confidence and solidity to the defence. Reason for the 1651 finish, was they had to wash their hands for tea, 1700 sharp.

Reese Oxford could be a nice acquisition for Fulham and fill that gaping hole at the back. I think he is on his way to a German side bot we can hijack this one depending on how much we can use Reese. He could play a role occupied by Chambers and draw a link up to our forward line. We could do a lot worse than Oxford, i think he could grow into a fine utility player...

I seem to recall a few years ago some woman aged about 21 sailed round the world in the Vendee race and was made a Dame shortly after, what a complete farce. I agree with the sentiment that people should only get recognition when their career ends and not like Andy Misery Murray who got his while still playing. Joke. As for getting rid of the Royals I also agree that they as they bring in mucho spondulix that they should stay, with the exception of those obnoxious pompous harris holes Andrew and Edward who should immediately be hung, drawn and quartered with their organs removed and left to rot on Putney Bridge. As for the England cricketers the one who should recieve recognition should be Andrew Strauss who masterminded the regeneration of the 50 over side 4 years ago, also poor bugger lost his wife to cancer a few months ago so fair play to him.

We all have to be careful not to let our antipathy towards a rival blind us to what is best for ourselves. If Steve Bruce is the best man available to manage Newcastle, the fact that he once managed Sunderland shouldn't prevent him from getting the job. If he is not the best candidate his Sunderland history is irrelevant. Newcastle would be damaging their prospects and by extension making life better for Sunderland fans if they don't take the best option for themselves. We should remember that when former Chelsea, QPR players or managers become available.
Replies
Hmmm methinks you completely underestimate the rivalry within north east football clubs. It pales anythng we have with Chelsea, QPR and Brentforn into complete insignificance.

There is nothng else in England to compare with it and only Celtic/Rangers rivalry would top it in my opinion but you have to have spent time up there to realise and understand it I believe....

Yeah, I get that there is a rivalry but the point is that Newcastle are doing themselves no favours by not going for the best man available, purely on the basis that he used to work for the "enemy". If they take a second best option and don't succeed, they'll be doing the same enemy a favour, surely not what they would have wanted. The deeper the rivalry, the more that should apply.As I said earlier, it would appear that your hatred of your rival outweighs your love of your own club, not a healthy state

Unfortunately, i can't see it working out for Steve Bruce at Newcastle. Yes Bruce is a Newcastle man but he has past connections with Sunderland. How will that register with the Newcie fans? There is no way Steve Bruce will get any love from those guys, no chance. Besides, they see Steve Bruce, Alan Pardew, and Harry Redknapp as filtered out managers who have done it and worn out the tee-shirt. One could even debate that Steve Bruce is more of a Championship Manager? How are the fans supposed to get past Benitez and his credentials? Brucie will have his work cut out for sure and we wish him all the best up there. Would we want him at Fulham??? I think not...

In my opinion, just because this website is run by Fulhamweb does not mean that the subject matter on a message board within the site should be excvlusive to comments about Fulham or just related to football.

As far as I'm concerened any "reasonable" subject is fair game provided that comment is within the law and I'm getting a little fed up that the moment someone dares digress from football or FFC they are reprimanded by someone who considers themselves the site policeman.

Equal opportunities for everyone I say and if you don't like it, don't comment on it and keep your views to FFC and football.

Simples!

Its more than that - he’s a Geordie and this would be irresistible. However he cant win, I remember walking out of the Stadium of Light when we played them and the crowd were chanting “ you fat Geordie bastard, get out of our club”. The Toon will never forgive him for what they consider treason for going over to the Mackems. Lee Clarke summed it up when he admitted that a major plus on joining Fulham was he didnt have to explain why he would have refused to play for Sunderland against Newcastle if he had to face the situation. Even Alex Ferguson said he was amazed that a Geordie would consider managing Sunderland

What a knob! While the rest of are trying come down from the euphoria and gather our senses, old Bertie Wooster just cynically sees an opportunity to make an idiotic bitter little jibe about how England can win without Europe. That's England with an Irish Captain, New Zealand match winner and a West Indian bowler who at 24 took on all the responsibility to bowl the last over. Everyone is thrilled with the quality of the match and the generosity and sportsmanship on both sides and we get this to throw cold water over the whole thing.

The reason European countries don't play cricket, is because almost all the countries that do, were part of the long gone British Empire. Because Britain ruled them for so long, they had time to learn the rules. Nowadays not many countries would have the patience to learn or want to play a game that can last for days.

As you will be aware, the progress of the redevelopment of the Riverside Stand has been one of the key issues the Trust has been involved in discussions with the Club about.

Over the course of the next few weeks, as we get used to watching Fulham from a temporarily three sided ground, the old structure will be demolished as work continues towards a new stand. You will be aware that part of the reasoning for the new stand is to be able to provide facilities on matchdays that were simply not possible in the old stand and income streams and local amenities on non-matchdays.

As a Trust, we have already been putting forward ideas to incorporate aspects of the Club’s history and heritage into the fabric of the ground, including where possible and appropriate, in the new stand. We have also put forward ideas coming from our membership and have encouraged the Club to ensure there is the opportunity for input from supporters prior to decisions being made on the fit out and matchday packages that will be available in the new, larger stand.

During next week, season ticket holders, members (including members from last season who may not yet have purchased a membership for 2019/20), and both seasonal and occasional hospitality package purchasers will be asked to take part in a preliminary survey by a third party organisation undertaking research on behalf of Fulham Football Club.

This is an important opportunity to provide some feedback on options, put forward your own ideas and give your opinion about what you would be interested in with the new stand. The survey has been designed to seek views on catering options, use of facilities before and after games and different seating options, and does so by asking you to rank between hypothetical options to test views. So it is an important opportunity to influence the way the Club approaches the configuration of the new stand early on and before any firm decisions have been made.

The Trust therefore encourages all of our members to take part in the survey and set aside the 15 to 20 minutes to complete it in full, if you are able to.

It will be an important element in the Club’s early consultation, and having pressed the Club on the merits of seeking views of supporters, we would like to see as many of our fanbase as possible – whether or not they have been regular spectators from the Riverside – to take part.

Only those who have opted in to receive information from Fulham will receive the survey. If you haven’t opted in (you may recall that when new data protection regulations were introduced recently then the Club had to ask people to actively opt-in to be sent information), and you want to take part in this survey, then you will need to do that here:

https://login.fulhamfc.com/Auth/Register.

Although this survey is not being carried out by the Trust, we are supportive of the Club taking supporters’ views seriously and so would like to see as many of our fans as possible taking part. If you do so, and there are specific issues arising from it that you would like us to pursue, then please do also let us know.

Fulham apparently looking for £9m for harvey Elliot! Consider we got £12m for Roberts and hopefully £30m for Sess, and would have got £20m for Dembele if we hanged onto him for another 12months - maybe not as ridiculous as it sounds!

I know many of you disagreed with my posting about Mitro yesterday, but watch him carefully next season. I honestly believe he thought he was playing Walking Football last season. Mitro, who by the way I think is a good player has a lot more to offer and yes of course once he gets the crossed balls in from the wings he will score more. Iam sure Scott Parker is aware of that and is going to try an resolve that for the team. Yes, defence was poor last season, they were out of their depth in our first season back in the Premier league. Shame Cahill or someone of his experience and stature was not brought in to the side, it was then what we needed and will again be that leading, captains role at centre back that we must get to have a top four finish. Ream by the way is excellent, but was lost without his partner Taggart at the back. Good luck Fulham.

I think we have reason to be cautiously optimistic for the coming season. A few key players have committed to Fulham for this season and last season's signings should do a lot better now that they have had time to settle and playing in a lower division, albeit for a longer campaign. Keep this squad more or less together, add a half-decent centre-half and give youngsters like MOR enough games and who knows?...

Sadly on this board according to different people we sign too many players, we don’t sign enough players, we get too many players on loan, we don’t get the right players, we pay too much for them, we get the wrong positional players, we get too many defenders, we play players out of position. We don’t play the youngsters, we throw people in too early, this ones crap, that ones crap.....I was quite looking forward to the season but now I need anti depressants to get through it.

Pope that’s football fans for you and why we love the game as there are 1,000 different opinions. Geezer we have this winger on loan for a season with the right to buy if we want. Sensible deal. We see him and then decide if we buy or not at the fixed price. I tell you this Khan is doing a good job after last season rubbish

Haha, but probably not Rich. You can’t just buy players because you want them, there are many factors that could come into play like, does his club want to sell, does he want to come, does his wife want to live somewhere else, do his kids want to change school ?etc.etc. Not to forget can we agree a price? I suspect it isn’t like going to the toy shop with your wish list. According to FFC they’ve been trying to do a deal for a couple of years and only now have all facets come together, notably, Wolves are on the up and up and they no longer feel he fits into their plans.

Just been reading the reports on the game in portugal V Burnley. Depending on whose side of the match you are reading there are quite some variations,reading between the lines Parker seems to be concentrating on fitness,quite so,Burnley played several of their youth squad we appeared at full strenth. It appeared from the report we lacked wing power (this could soon be addressed) Christie aparently had the run around, but Bryan played well. We need to get the new players in and bedded down before our first match.

Was disappointed to hear Mitro is staying at Craven Cottage. I have no doubt he is one lazy player and does not surprise me when he can't even be bothered to move clubs. Why move when you can stay still Mitro?

KAMARA is by far a better striker for me.

By the way McDonald is played out of position, the man is centre back if I ever saw one! what do you think?...

HA' Ha', My weekends are getting better and better, keep it up Mal, this will cheer MST up no end. Seriously though, big Mitro is our go-to striker, our solid rock. Mitrovic just needs that pace get-go and we still need another striker. I will not complain if we have Cavaliero, Knockheart, and whoever onboard. It will be a big season for Fulham and if we can stamp some authority on this Championships, we can be awesome. Cup Matches are always lucrative and important, and we need muscle like Kamara around. Give the guy a chance and we may even see improvements to his game. We had a good cup run a season or two back and Kamara was quite forward with his goals. Fulham paid 5 million for him and i don't think we have much to lose or that we are taking a serious risk. Tony Khan has more to lose than any other in this saga, and his head will be on the block if everything he is planning goes south. We are doing everything slowly and that is the way how we operate. Our biggest worry is our defence, we need to address those problems this season...

It's just the new way or controlling the population, keeping people in check with fear. First it was religion, then wars, now they have hijacked science to keep us in our place. Sadly, as you correctly point out, it's all about money now, no self respecting climate change denier gets a grant or a salary. You must agree or no dosh for you... science used to be about questioning everything, now it's about being on a gravy train.

Anthony Knockaert from Brighton HA sounds good to me, as he always put in a shift. Mo Besic Everton from Everton would be a welcome addition to our midfield, although no youngster If that falls through Sander Berge from Genk is also a hard ball-carring midfielder. It looks like the powers that be have been put off by the asking price for Dwight Gayle from Newcastle United who are asking silly prices for their players as Mike Ashley seeks to get his money back. Kasper Dolberg at Ajax is young and enthusiastic as one Ryan Sessegon used to be or Sam Larsson at Feyenoord is also a good striker and gets goals, not to forget Yussuf Poulsen of RB Leipzig is a striker who is quick of the mark. Darly Janmaat of Watford is a very useful Right Back. What do you lot think?

It is estimated that it costs between 6 & 8 mill Per year to run the Academy,so work out what it has cost the club over the last 10/15 years. Our coaching scouting level is second to none at the acadamy only to develop for the piss takers, who cherry pick at will. If we were to get 20m for Seggers ?that would still leave us around 80mil out of pocket.Lets see for at least 4/5 seasons all smaller clubs abandon their youth sides and let the bigger clubs try and develop their tallent,you would then see the winging and whining start.

Cavaleiro to FFC no thanks , we really are scraping the bottom of the barrel also , let's send Mawson back to Swansea I didn't see much of him last year but what I saw was very disappointing ..slow and poor in the air . The way things are going with Seri , Anguissa , Le Marchand etc still around and no right back in sight finishing mid table will be a major achievement .

It’s only me! Always reading but not often posting…I think he could fit in well! Can see him getting around 15 or more goals with plenty of assists, working the wing and supplying Mitrovic. Think Caveleiro would be a perfect fit for us. He did well for Wolves and was a fans favourite. Could be a fantastic addition to our team. On loan With an option to buy so it’s a win win if you ask me !! We live to Dream. Onwards & Upwards. COYW

He is a rich man's idiot son, I'd love to see him run Chelsea, QPR or Brentford, but not Fulham.

I feel this could be a good signing,and if he is a flop, its not cost us squillions. Another full back,C/H,& foreward. I think Bryan wil prove his worth this season and with O Reilly getting regular spots we could more than OK

Mawson spent most of the season injured the only time we had any joy seemed to be when n mawson played

Kunye' Cavaleiro will not be a flop. Nuno doesn't make many mistakes when he buys players. The Wolves squad has grown and grown and you need a nice big squad back in the prem. Maybe Cavaleiro got his nose pushed out? My only question is, Which side does Cavaleiro play on? left or right preference? I am liking what Parker is doing. I hope he brings more, especially our defence, we really need to give that some attention...
