If FFC is to succeed only winning will secure access to the Premiership. Current Excuses are not Acceptable. The power of the players at FFC are sufficient to obtain promotion. My concern is the development of the defensive tactics at FFC have not seemingly to have improved and we let in goals at late stages in the game. I may well be wrong with my thoughts regarding this message however my team FFC do not seem to have a reliable defence since Brede Hangeland and Aaron Hughs formed a great partnership alongside our goalie Mark Schwarzer. My thoughts are, for a team the size of FFC if you do not have a good defence, you rely on the strikers to score more goals than you let in. I understand and it is obvious, if a game is nil-nil which I would hate, a point would still be secured. Letting in goals only means we have to chase the game either for a draw or hopefully a win. In my opinion the Defence at FFC needs to be the main focus for FFC's future success.

One of the things I like about this forum is that it's relatively broad church, mixing football with jokes and banter, especially from those who have an ancestral claim to the borough. This approach now seems to be under attack by moderators being "corrected" by agenda politics and the overwhelming need to be seen as politically correct. A non-moderated board would be much preferable to one dictated to by those of the social justice warrior brigade who have an inferiority complex manifested as a right to be offended. So, I ask again and for the second time; what is the moderation protocol for this board? If the current moderators would enlighten me I would appreciate it so I can make my own decisions going forward. If they feel imposed upon by the need to be politically correct in all regards then they sould resign their commission else I must assume they are in agreement to the censorship currently being demonstrated.

'It does not take many words to tell the truth' By Chief Sitting Bull' The truth is 'Chief' we should be bossing this division. If Parker isn't up to the job, he must go period!!!!!! 'Inside of me there are two dogs. One is mean and evil and the other is good and they fight each other all the time. When asked which one wins i answer, the one i feed the most. 'By Chief Sitting Bull' Chief' let's man-up, and put more fight into this division. Fulham are the best, so do let's show more fight!!!!

Why are we fearful of the prem? We should man-up and want to be there. We beat Villa in play-offs, and didn't show enough guts to stay in prem. Look at Villa now in the prem. They are not perfect but they are giving it a better go than we did. Matt Targett scored for them to win. We Shoulda' Coulda' Woulda!!!!!

So Parker lacks experience and needs a mentor. Was Ranier inexperienced as well? Fact is the team is just average and until we get a reliable defence and another goal scorer things will not change. Sound familiar?

Well, its good we have a Manager that is honest but bad that we did not sign some defenders in the summer who can defend. I'd put Mitrovich at the back unless he scores more goal. Yes, you say I'm made do not forget how Norwich and Manchester United used Dion Dublin!

Coach clueless, as I said weeks ago ,so plan b, sounds familiar!!. Still only 6 point behind leader ,third best attacking team and defence not bad , but I think it will get worse as the games pile up , oh yes why was my post to ari removed? just praising the Arizona panhandle and such ?.

SP should put his hands up and say he got the team wrong . The back 4 was wrong and it is now obvious Reed and Arter can't play in the middle together they get in each others way . On Wednesday let's put Odoi Mawson Ream Bryan as the back four and ask them to try and stop the other side scoring a tough ask I know !
Replies
The problem is we didn’t have a back four. We had 3 at the back and were expecting Cavaleiro and Knockaert to defend. The only reason these two reason these two excellent players are here is because they cannot defend when required, especially at top level! As I said many times the root of the problem goes back to not buying a right back since we sold Fredericks!! Three at the back away is a big big risk! Parker will learn!

Two days ago i read Parker stating Stoke were no pushover and their position belied the ability of their squad. Almost every week he is negative before the match and this must impact on the players and it shows. For goodness sake Parker stop being negative and putting the frighteners on our team. Start learning but preferable with a non-league club.
Replies
You are so right, I have often thought that. I noticed that before the Reading and Charlton matches, he was almost putting the frighteners on both the team and us fans, saying how good they were, and how hard it would be fore us to win. The same pre-Stoke, and that almost puts us down before the game starts. Alright we won at Reading, but I reckon that Sutton United would have beaten them that day. I'm feeling really down tonight after today's showing, and I feel almost humiliated with the result. I haven't had my doubts about Scott Parker until after both the Charlton and today's games, and I have coming to the conclusion, that even a half decent manager, would be winning matches with this excellent squad of players, and with the low standard of the teams in the Championship, we should be in the top 6 at least. Sorry but Scotty must go now, before the horse has bolted, as they say.
posted by Malden Mick (Guest) - Saturday 19th October 2019, 8:26 PM
 
Parker is correct in stating that Stoke are no pushovers, and i would like to add that they are at home advantage and not long been a premier club. Parker also would know from the Charlton game that more and more clubs will come on to us and we are sussed out. The one important detail is, 'Can Scott Parker counter-act this? Tactically no! Experienced he is lacking. Do we have the patience to learn and wait for his revolution? 'It's a 'No from me!!!
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Saturday 19th October 2019, 8:38 PM
 
How is that negative? Saying there no push overs? What did u expect him to say? That they were push overs and we would do a number on them? No manager would say that as look what happened after 90 minutes! They beat Swansea last time out and they were top then so he was right they are no push overs. Bad day all round but not too bad as no one really gained much ground
posted by Paul24FFC (Guest) - Saturday 19th October 2019, 9:02 PM
 
Paul24FFC, you are right to say that nobody made much ground up on us, because they didn't win either, but Leeds and WBA did, and we are therefore losing ground already. Surely if we had won today, we would have made up ground. When the likes of QPR and Charlton are above us in the table, with quite ordinary squads, it is disgraceful that we are sitting in the middle of the table. Yes I know that there are 26 more games to go, so there is plenty of games and time left, but at the moment our form is very worrying, if we really intend to have a go at promotion this season. We really do need to go on a good run from now until Christmas, or we can forget being challengers for this season.
posted by A C (Guest) - Saturday 19th October 2019, 11:54 PM
 
I fully understand AC and yes it was a bad result and the draws before hand not so good either. We do need to string a run of wins together to catch up but we're not too far off so I'm not too worried yet. I just didn't understand the comments saying Parker was too negative before the game and as per my post you can see why! Anyway on to the next game. COYWs

I didn't see this game and maybe i shouldn't comment. I just think we should look at our options earlier than Xmas, if we want to keep up with the top 6. I cannot think of anyone better qualified and ready to go now more than Slavisa Jokanovic. He knows the club inside out and our guys upstairs might be on board with this suggestion? Slavisa didn't have the firepower Scott Parker has at his disposal. All the remainers who would like to see Parker keep on till xmas will need to consider this detail'. If we don't gain promotion, will players like Mitrovic, Cavaliero, and a few other loan players stay another year in the Championship with Fulham? I very much doubt it, and maybe better now to call Slav back? Or we wait and see how many points we squander or pick up under Parkers win some, draw some, and lose some system. All in favour of Parker, we are due a win Wedsnesday, 'whoopee dooooo!!!!!!!!!!
Replies
I watched the game. Just like all games after international break, we don’t look as sharp and our tempo and speed is at least half yard short! I like slavisa but I think we need a stronger motivator manager! Our fundamental problem is we still haven’t got a decent right back. Why else did the fxxked we play 3 at the back!!
posted by John (Guest) - Saturday 19th October 2019, 8:22 PM
 
Felt sad and bitter reading that left-back Targett scored the winner for Villa. Charlton hammered Derby 3.0, which shows that they are better than people think. No excuses for recent prem boys Fulham. Parker has enough talent in our squad but sadly, he is inept tactically. I hope the board reacts sooner rather than later!

Great having lots of possession and all but teams like Barcelona think outside the box and we ain’t Barcelona. They force all youth teams to play the same system to integrate into the first team. They also ‘rondo’ over and over and over again until they are bored of passing accurately. I doubt any of our players stay behind to work on extra training. Probably straight home to the bookies or the PlayStation. There are teams working harder than us with less quality, so frustrating

This team has lost another 3 points despite of having over 70% possession. We are dropping points galore at home. I have come to the conclusion that we aint going anywhere this season. We have Luton at home on Wednesday and really if we drop points here we can really say goodbye to a top 6 finish. What is wrong at this club? Middlesbrough away next Saturday, I shudder to think what the result will be.

Parker. He comes cheap what do you expect? He is young and wholly inexperienced. He needs 10 years in the managerial game to marinate. What we need is someone with pedigree. A soulless pragmatic German like that guy for Southampton. Every time I read this forum its supporters bitching about our shortcomings myself included. Its been established that our fancy-pants style of play is easy to dissect by any manager with half a brain. Parker needs to be inserted in vat of oil or atleast made into pies. Nice guys finish last.

We are just not learning. Too slow and no cutting edge, despite having the players that have pace and proven goal scoring ability. So blame is firmly with inept coaching and tactical acumen. Parker your inexperience is becoming glaringly obvious and a real problem to our successful progress. See QPR got another result with a team of players on paper not one would get in our team but a manager who has experienced this league before.

Official stats : Fulham have had so far 6091 passes which is 1257 more than our nearest rivals 75% within our own half what use is that. We are tenth in division through Parkers lack of tactics, he has only one game plan,.and our goalkeeper cant move the ball out more than ten yards before he wants it returned .PATHETIC ,if we do not address this system 10th position will be our highest achievement this season

Scott Parker has made some comments on Charlton doing a job on us with the high press and aggressive tactics which made life difficult for us. I expect that from most teams who have done their homework on Fulham from now onwards. We play exciting, attacking, and expansive football, but we have our weaknesses and we all know what that is. Joe Bryan has featured in every game so far and that was pointed out by some well known experts. Bryan is attack-minded and he holds the ball well. Maybe Scotty can spot some gaps what we can address now, and find some extra cover when needed behind Joe Bryan. Bryan is not our greatest defender when losing the ball and he does occasionally get caught out, but not the only one. Make no mistake, Stoke will not be a pushover, and why should we expect them to roll over. Stoke will get their act together sooner rather than later, and i expect that this recently fallen premiership side to find some consistent form. The table is showing a false position for Stoke and their win against Swansea could be the start of something for them. We have the tools in the box to win this away game, but we need to work hard to do this. A quick start and a consistent tempo going forward is what is needed, and tactics will play a part if we are to win. Keep in mind that our strongman Mitrovic has featured for his country, and maybe at some point in the game, he will show some fatigue. Scott Parker will need some bravery and brains to know when to sub, and who will replace Mitro if nessesary. Bobby Reid is in excellent form, and maybe he could slot into that central striker role? Whatever the tactics, it would be nice for Parker and Stuart Gray to engineer an away win at Stoke and put on display some intelliget thinking. COME ON YE FULHAM' We can do ourselves a favour tomorrow...

We might try some "route" running as per American Football where the ball is released often before the receiver has changed direction and looked for the ball. The QB knows what the receiver is going to do before the ball is thrown.

Agree Arizonan' we need plenty of pace and to cut out that slow play at the back which is heart-stopping. If i was a ref, i would book Bettonelli every time he slows the game down. Bettonelli needs to switch on more and it will be interesting to see Parkers tactical prowess. This Stoke away game will be a good test for Fulham.

Agreed Baz, on balance I would rather be in the Prem, I guess it's the irony of enjoying winning more games vs all that comes with being in the Prem. I hope we go up, but would hate to go through what we went through last season again.
posted by CoJ (Guest) - Thursday 17th October 2019, 10:23 PM
 
The point is if and when we do get to the premier league we need to be so much more prepared to contest with the big boys than we were last time around.Bournmouth are a good benchmark for us but I noticed the gap between the 2 leagues grows every year,noticed how much more physical and well drilled premier league clubs are. The likes of Brighton,Palace,Watford,Southampton,Newcastle are always in danger of relegation so the trick is not to finish 4th from bottom but aim higher like Wolves,so unless our squad improves dramatically we’re much better off in the championship and actually go to any match with a realistic chance of winning.

every club should have ambition, and I cant believe fulhams is to remain in the championship. yes, I know its a lot less bother on many fronts ,but there are some clubs similar in size in the premiership at present so that should be this seasons aim,or any other, for that matter.

Regarding the odd ball on the underground train to day, does he know there is a live rail at side of carriage?lucky he came of on platform side, but how long before some one gets killed? most people are on there side but have to go to work to pay bills and feed familys,so , do we assume they all have private incomes?who is paying them if not?. What might be a good idea if they built a boat and sailed across to india for example, then chained them selves to the 9am out of Mumbai along with another 20,ooo who do it every day sitting on the top, but do remember these guys are experts,all the protesters would have is a five quid padlocks from halfords holding them on ,now that would go viral. Plus do the luvvies cummberbum, and emma (do you think im funny)Thompson realise if they get a criminal record for protesting they cannot enter the usa?.no more films in Hollywood.

There are three men on a boat. A Macedonian, a Bulgarian, and an Albanian. Satan shows up and tells them that he will kill them if they can't throw something he can't find into the ocean. The Albanian throws in a grain of rice. Satan jumps in the water and comes back with the rice after a few hours. He kills the Albanian. The Bulgarian throws a grain of sand into the ocean. After a few days, Satan retrieves it and kills the Bulgarian. Satan looks expectantly at the Macedonian, who then proceeds to throw an Alka-Seltzer into the ocean...

They still have some decent players but they are in a bit of a mess! Reminds me of Fulham when we got relegated the last time. They won their last game. They will be motivated to beat us. We need to put them back in their box quickly on Saturday. I reckon if we can score in the first 20mins - we will win comfortably! Otherwise, i think some of their players like Allen will step up! Coyw
Replies
It will be a cold night up north and we will need to get off the block and keep that good tempo up from the last game. My slight worry with Mitrovic is that he won't be as sharp as he could be, especially after playing for his country. If Mitro is having a mare? Parker can always slot in Bobby Reid more forward? We have enough players in our weaponry to shuffle here or there. It all depends on Parker maturing his tactics? Joe Allen is a good player for Stoke, he would fit in at Fulham nicely...

Players by algorithms? Who worked the maths out with algorithmeth 'Siri' 30 mill, and the other high cost failures? 'Kamara' 5 million and not even much of a dent on Fulhams financial books, did not blow us the premiership. One missed penalty and a punch-up does not even put a dent to the antics of George best and Rodney Marsh. I would agree though that Kamara has less ability than our famous Bestie and co, and improvement from Kamara needs to come forth. At only age 23 or around therish, there could still be time for Kamara, time will tell...

Yes Owen, but is he coachable? He's quick and can confuse a defence because they don't know what he's going to do, but most times he doeasn't seem to know either. Might be worth a run as a sub if he can temper his undoubted enthusiasm with a decent end product. Could be a good antidote to the high press if the ball over the top is released early (and that's a big if).
posted by The Arizonan - Thursday 17th October 2019, 8:15 PM
 
Ari' it's a long whole season. If we pick up injuries, it might be the old fashion hump-ball over the top for Kamara to run on too. Hey' we are giving Parker ideas and tactics galore here, and its all for free. 'Parker' write this down quick!

The following is a true story that I decant with extreme trepidation that some key board warrior doesn't come and start lecturing me that I'm Irishist ;0):

I travel to Ireland regurly for work as I am responsible for our operation there as well as the UK and on this particular occasion I was staying in the Clarendon in Dublin. I don't usually eat breakfast (no I'm not breakfastist either) but on this day I fancied the works as I was not going to have time for lunch.

Any how, I went to the restaurant and it was a buffet style but there was a cook/chef behind serving on to your plate. I chose what I wanted but I'm not a fan of grilled fresh tomatoes so I asked the chef if they had any tinnned tomatoes and to my delight he said yes sir and took my plate out back to the kitchen to fetch some.

Imagine my surprise when he returned with two fresh tomoatoes nicely arranged on my plate that had simply been thinly sliced.

I looked at my colleague (who by the way is from Galway) and we just burst out laughing. I've been telling that story now for a long time but just thinking about it again makes me giggle. To make it even crazier, the chef was Polish LOL.

While i would agree he is one of the best motor racing drivers we ever had or even the world has seen, I never liked him much. He’s arrogant and a bit of a hypocrite. He says he love the country but then he moved to Switzerland so while he earns £50m a year, he’s paying no more tax than anyone of us in here! Is that love for the country! What’s the latest Instagram post I hear that he’s lost the will to live because we are killing the world! Really?? If he’s that serious, join the extinction rebellion! Formula1 burns more CO2 than any other sports I can think of. Jumbo jets flying thousands and thousands of tons of equipments around the world 26 times a year! Get rid of his private jet! Why people feel sorry for him that he could really be considering taking his own life I cannot understand. Lewis, get real! you don’t need sympathy!

WTF!!?? Yet again this MB is being hijacked by those who seem to get a stiffy by wittering on about all subjects other than..... football.

Looking forward to the game at Stoke on Saturday before the bad weather draws nigh. Anyone whose been there will know it's the second coldest ground in the country (Barnsley being the coldest). My opinion only of course ;0).

Wouldn't it be Fulhamish for us to go and lose up there though? Hopefully we will pay them due respect, play our "A" game with fast flowing footy and score a hatful. You never know, we could be top of the league come 5 O'clock :0).

Can't wait to get the boring internationals out of the way and get back to a decent league programme and this board full of FFC banter ;0).

Anyone been to colder grounds in England I'd be interested to know?

I remember the game against Brentford, not only was it freezing cold, but we threw away a two goal lead after passing them off the pitch. scotty, ken atombomb and cliff carr, if I remember, netted for us, we wore a grotesque red and yellow strip, which some joked was our jelly trifle kit! the year was 1987.

See Claudio just landed a lucrative 2 year contract with Sampdoria who are currently bottom in Italy. How does that happen? After his disastrous time with us he’s not much use in a relegation battle,maybe he’ll prove us all wrong.

True half his CV is a touch iffy, but i think that his time at Chelsea is worth a 2nd look, and his winning the league with Leicester might be the deal-breaker.

God wrote those words, Albert. I know some people might have a laugh about this stuff, but we sure used to be a lot better growing up and taking part in a Christian assembly at school back in the 70's. Yes i got the cane for being rude and disobedient to mt elders, but life back then was better for kids especially at school. Was not in the boys scouts, but had friends who were. We all had swiss army pen-knives which we used to whittle and shave sticks and we even learned to start a fire from tinder wood etc, which was all good harmless fun. The moment we all started to weird out about religion and Christianity, was the fall of this country full-stop. Now we listen to a 16 year old 'Greta Thunberg, who no doubt lived in a God-less household, and who tells us that the world will end in 8 years which is bull-crap. She is telling all the idiots who will take in the bullcrap, to go vegan? My take on that is to sometimes eat vegan and to eat some meat sometimes. In other words, eat a balance diet which God intended. This is all i want to say on this subject because we have a game against Stoke Saturday. Let's get back to some football reality and Impartial and Kunye moaning about something Fulham!!!!!!!

The most important detail Boris should ensure is that Britain is not held to ransom and if a deal is possible? We don't give control to euro beurocrats. Important to stand on your own feet and only do deals that suit and benefit Britain. Idiots here who are crying for a beloved Europe, nobody will be crying over Britain. Anyone who believes that there is a golden utopia over the borders of europe should go and give it a try? Germany is stumped, their wonderful cars and engines that they make, and they are the best of the best, they won't sell anymore. Diesel engines are the best there is but they are dead! The French don't really like us and they will continue pushing people they don't particularly want to deal with in our direction. Look out for more rafts and make-shift boats coming in our direction and the French authorities looking the other way. There is a good bible saying that each and everyone should show kindness to one's neighbours which really means be kind to everyone else besides your neighbour next door. If anyone is daft or brave enough to still make the dangerous crossing, Britain 9 times out of 10 do treat everyone kindly which say's a lot for this country. Put things into perpective folks, we are a very decent and kind country which say's a lot to the questions asked, Why do people want to come to England? England and English people are decent. Not so much the rest of europe. Will we survive with or without Brexit? One hundred per cent 'Yes'!!!!

Owen the Diesel still has a long life to go yet. This country does not have this electrical capacity to cover all our needs. The government not long ago passed a bill to build five mini power plants. Because with the older power stations are coming to the end of there lives. And we wont be able to produce enough power to cover whats needed .Also you say us English are decent people and that rest of Europe aint. Have you ever lived abroad or work there for a time. [Exclude your two weeks in Spain]. Free loaders come here for an easy life with all the benefits they can fiddle. And change our English culture. And did you vote in or out . And thats why millions voted to come out of the EU. More than those that didnt bother to vote or who did vote.

Geezer' i didn't vote, but i believe we should stand on our own feet and be self-sufficient. Unfortunately, there are too many free-loaders swanning about and not contributing to our economy. Nothing we can really do about that now, but we can plug some gaps by adopting an Australian and part Canadian system now. Our 2 World wars has not produced many decent young folks now who will stand up. I am truly disappointed in one of our main hopes for the future in Mr Dysun who wimped out of an electric car project. I agree he was a few years late coming to the table on that one, but to give up on it like that speaks volumes.

But they have all buggered off and the Empire is no more. So all us contemporaries are going to do is do what we have done as a nation of pirates , and go home draw up the drawbridge, and having pissed off our biggest market ( who dont need us ) and expect them to fall over us to trade.

1. The EU does not sell more to us than we do to them (silly uninformed statement really) we sell 100 times more to Europe than we buy but we should be worried about both because our free tade with the rest of the world is also negotiated by the EU and when we come out that means ALL imported AND exported goods will be subjected to WTO duty. Then you'll discover what our £xb per anum pays for! you will pay 20% more for imported goods and our exports will be uncompetitive. Or do you think things will just carry on as they are LOL?
2. The UK has representatives in the EU council that form part of the Bureaucracy mentioned and is complicit in settinf the rules and laws
3. It is not Europeans who have developed our culture it is immigrants from the Far East and the Caribbean and coming out of Europe will change nothing in that direction.
4. Diesel is still the cheapest form of energy and will be around for hundreds of years yet.
5. The French have the largest refugee camps in Europe with at least 1,000 times more people than make it to the UK every year

As previously indicated, give uninformed people a vote (regardless of which way they voted) on somethiing as important as Brexit and you wind up with the mess we now have! We only have ourselves to blame.....

We've given Brexit a good going over during the past three years.

This of course means that the Torys must back the PM to the hilt.whist its not easy to vote for something you don't believe in, I would remind them it was their choice to have a referendum, the fact the result was huge shock doesnt alter fact that if democracy is to be upheld we have to leave..And can you imagine if the result had gon the other way they would have said " the majority voted to remain get over it"

MST you don’t seem to know what is going on, in the common market days you would have a point but not in these days of the EU super state where the UK is just a region to be used, Greece has been screwed by Germany and Germany would do the same to us(and to France who are their lapdogs). When they feel like it they would find a reason to make the clothes you sell illegal and replace them with German makes. You seem to be motivated by money but I am more concerned with our children’s future and our freedom. It was Blair that caused this problem when most other EEC countries had a referendum but he would not allow us one because he knew which way it would go. You can stuff yourself saying I make silly comments.

Baz, I didn't mean to offend you so apologies for that however, I am not confused about what is going on and I am not motivated by money although I am seriously concerned for my livlihood and that of my family's. Iam not retired for a long time yet and I need my job as I will not get another like it at 61 years of age. There are many people who work for overseas companies in the same position becuase who do you think owns our utilities, our car manufacturers, our mobile phone networks, even our choclateers

Maybe you should ask the majority of youngsters who voted to remain why they chose to do that or listen to the vast majority of big businesses, finaciers and financial commentators who KNOW it will be a disaster leaving the EU because hoping that all will be fine once good old blighty rules the waves again is nothing but a pipedream I'm afraid.

We'll see I guess but I am extremely pessimistic for the future of everyone in this country and not just money motivated......

I have to say Geezer that my experience is completely different to yours with young adults (16 - 21). The youngsters that I have had the pleasure to meet, seem to be very switched on and know exactly what they want from a career and life in general. I occasionally talk in sixth form colleges and universities (that used to be Polys) and I am always refreshed with the engagement that I get and I always come out of these seminars learning a thing or two myself.

I'm not doubting your experience at all but we are obviously mixing with different demographics and you can't tar everyone with the same brush because there are no doubt, mature adults who could be described similar to your portrayal of the kids you've met.

The long and short of it for me is that there should never have been a referendum and if there was it should have been after the options had been debated at length and options agreed with the EU beforehand so that people were much more informed and everyone knew what the REAL consequences would be when they did vote. Right now whether you voted leave or remain you will definitely not get what you voted for so no one will be happy and the country will be far worse off as a result.

So, two blokes in Arizona go on a long camping trip. After a week of each others company, and with nothing new to talk about around the camp fire, they decide to split up for the day so they would have something to discuss over dinner. Well, said one after they'd finished their meal, I struck out to the North. The scenery up that way is spectacular; gentle meandering streams, masses of wildflowers in the meadows, herds of whitetail deer and antelope with their newborn calves grazing peacefully while trophy bucks galore stood guard; Bald Eagles and Orioles in avian abundance; it was a magical hike and so rewarding. I had a great time. How about you? I headed south, said his friend and the trail was interesting enough but after about five miles I came across a railway and, lo and behold, tied hand and foot across the line was a naked blonde. I quickly cut her lashings with my Bowie and carried her off the track into a grassy dell under the shade of a big oak tree where we lay back and had sex all afternoon in all positions and embracing all our wildest and most perverse inclinations. Wow, said his compadre, that sounds fantastic. Everything huh? Did you get a blow job? No, said his friend, sadly I couldn't find her head.

American tourist golfer is in Ireland and decides to have a round a the local town club. He reckons he is the best golfer around & very confident. He says to the club captain. I would like to play your best player. That would be Mickey Delaney he replies, Mickey, this fella want to challenge you to a round. Okay Mickey says, meet me here tomorrow at 9, but I might be half an hour late. The next day Mickey arrives at 9 and wipes the floor with him so the American is smarting a bit so challenges him to a game the next day. Okay says Mickey, 9am again but I might be half an hour late. 9am Mickey is there again but with left handed clubs and wipes the floor with him again. The American says, yesterday you beat me with right handed clubs & today left handed, how do you choose which clubs to use. Mickey says, if the missus is lying on her left in the morning I bring the left handed clubs & if on her right side, the right handed clubs. What if she is on her back? Asks the yank. I'll be half an hour late says Mickey!

But now some diplomats wife from the yanks kills a bloke on a push bike goes back home and wont be coming back. And looks like she will get away with it. Now will this government scrap the order. Or is it what the yanks say Dont do as i do do as i say. And they go around the the world preaching the rights and wrongs to other people.

Americans will strenously defend their own Geezer, while actively pursuing who they deem as malfeasants in other countires. 'Twas ever thus. The UK should never have agreed to extradite the persons you mentioned so the fault, in the main, lies with Westminster and non-accountable ministers. However, it's not a tit-for-tat situation. She shouldn't have left the country and was badly advised so to do, ruining her reputation and her husbands career and denying the greiving family an explanation and an apology. Shameful she should act that way but the only way she'll show up in an English court is if she returns voluntarily.

The trouble is, once someone claims diplomatic immunity it threatens the ethos and integrity of the whole process if the US gave her up and it would then be difficult to see where that would end - especially in times of conflict.

Of course it is not right that someone can "alledgedly" take another's life (however accidental) and then not face an investigation at the least but regretfully there's much more at stake here internationally and diplomatically.

Hopefully the lawsuit that the lad's parents take out against this woman will throw further light on the matter and if she is found guilty then they get what they are hoping for friom the action they're taking.

Between Kebano, Christie, and KMac we have three proven Championship players who could probably start or be key subs for a dozen clubs in this division. You’d have to think we’ll be able to sell and offload those wages — I’d trade all three for Freddo or a Prem caliber right back. Same with De La Torre and O’Riley. We should do those boys a favor and get them playing for Stoke, Wigan, etc. And take that money and invest it in our back line.

Am I not right in thinking that Freddo let his contract run down, so he could go on a free transfer, deny Fulham a transfer fee, and increase his earnings. I think hell will freeze over before he returns to Fulham.

I have read on several posts concern that when we go up we will again have to do without this seasons loanees. On the player profiles,ffc apparantly have an option to keep all 5. Can anyone elaborate on this.
Replies
T.no you must have been on your hols mate. The club have the loanees under contract to become permanent at the end of the season at the club's discretion at a transfer fee already agreed. If they don't work out they return to their parent club. Lessons have been learnt from last seasons recruitment debacle, for which the club should be applauded (and that's coming from me for Christ's sake).
posted by The Arizonan - Thursday 10th October 2019, 12:27 AM
 
Yes, lessons learnt and Tony Khan, despite his previous failings must be congratulated for pulling this off on all the loan players! It’s a win win situation for Fulham. Let’s try to get promoted first!
posted by John (Guest) - Thursday 10th October 2019, 8:38 AM
 
All of our loan players have a good amount of Premier League experience. I can not fault the recruitment policy this season (though an extra two defenders would have been nice). If we do get promoted, I can't see any reason why we wouldn't sign the players (who would have been a part of the club for 12 months) on a permanent basis. At any level of football, consistency can play a huge advantage in performance.

I have to say, I'm not convinced by Parker. He was a relatively uninspiring player, and I feel he may be the same as a coach. Give him until the end of the Christmas period and see where we lie.
posted by Dan (Guest) - Thursday 10th October 2019, 11:38 AM
 
dan; I cant agree with you less. scott parker was a player who inspired wherever he played, and we got some good service from him over the seasons he played at the cottage. whether you like or dislike him or his approach, he is getting it right, and forget all the talk about the sack . he should be judged by how we end the season, and unlike others, I am confident he will deliver.

Having watched Scott Parker. More closely don’t agree with your assesment certainly made his presence felt when he played for us not the best at going forward. But very steady in midfield areas and not afraid to go in where it hurts !!!!

len, agreed dan, not agreed. I was always a bit wary of him after he injured jimmy bullard at Newcastle a decade ago, but he was quite a presence in the time he played here.

On the Kamara football programme the following day after that match, Chris Coleman said that he couldnt talk more highly of Scott Parker who came in the Fulham dressing room at both half snd full time to see Bullard and the medical staff. Bullard went on record after saying the incident was a complete accident and in no way Parker’s fault. It must have been bad however, as Collins John took one look at it and threw up.

As far as I read from the press there’s no stipulation on the period of extension the prime minster must request. What stops him from requesting an extension of just 1 day? He compliant with the benn law surely! Anyone know??

The EU can say all they want about not giving extensions; it's all rhetoric because they cannot lawfully refuse. It is the UK that have sacked the EU not the other way around and the decsion is entirely in the hands of the UK Parliament. The period of extension is the only thing that has to be agreed by the EU not the extension itself.

To answer your question John, if BJ asked for one day and there still was no deal after that period he would have to ask for another extension and another and so on until a deal is struck. The Benn ruling does not allow for a "no deal" period.

Commentators that I speak to agree that the most likey outcome next week is an extension until the end of January but who really knows.....

I do not know the answer . No one knows for certain what will happen if we remain or leave with out a deal, I just wish people would give there opinion and not say it is a fact in. Remain isn't a option to many people are not happy with our current set up with Europe and just leaving is not a option for the same reason. A Election and one side getting a majority of 30 seats + will sort this out one way or another but I suspect we already know how that would go.

@jimjo you are right, I initially started posting on here as a wind up, hence the moniker. I was a long time lurker who enjoyed reading the football chat. I became increasingly concerned by the tone of posts in a number of areas (one of which has been deleted - I won't bring it up again!). So I started to stir the pot. I'm a left leaning, pro-EU FFC fan and I'm under 40, with enough life experience and nous to be tolerant of all walks of life without actually being a 'snowflake', though I enjoyed being labelled as one due to the juvenile streak that I have and love of a good wind up. I think getting back to the football is what I'd like to see, I've gone beyond just trolling now and think the quality of this board is suffering. Less politics and more long-winded but wildly optimistic rants from the sublime @OWEN is what I'd like to see. COYWS!

Our visit to Charlton Athletic in London SE always worried me and the 2 – 2 at the end was more than we deserved, because as always I repeat our need for some decent defenders, two central defender and a right back in January or we can forget any thoughts of Premiership next season. If we won the second half, Charlton were all over us like a rash in the first. We also have to shake off the policy of having on-loan players, for even if they give their all, like Callum Chambers last season, they will more than likely be doing it in someone else’s team next season. If you have any doubts ask Pep Guardiola who let Vincent Company go at the end of last season but could not afford Harry McGuire but United who did buy him cannot win even with him in their side. What I make of that I do not understand, but I do know that Fulham was a far better side with George Cohen, Paul Went, Brede Hegeland or John Lacy in our side than any of our current defenders.

Sorry, me again, just confirm what defenders in the current squad are on loan? And to confirm, the year we went up, Mitro - loan, Kallas - loan, Target - loan, Piazon - loan. We went up! Yeah, that loan system really failed that season didn't it!

ROC - once and for all the loanees are all playing with a clause that their contracts will be made permanent, solely at the club’s option at the end of the season. It will be the club’s decision of they are playing elsewhere after this season’s end. Hope you didn’t go to the valley last Saturday , as you might have felt rather lonely.....
posted by Keetch54 - Tuesday 08th October 2019, 1:49 PM
 
Obviously there may be a clause in the loan contract which is dependent upon promotion. The loan system is a good one, in general, however, if you loan the wrong players (such as Schurrle, who was only trying to reignite his career), it can go horribly wrong, and you end up playing a player because it's been agreed between the two clubs that player will play, even if they aren't appropriate for particular games. Knockaert seems like a fantastic loan signing. He's a proven Championship and a reasonably experience Premier League player. He is playing a lot of minutes for us this season (deservedly so), and his reaction to the goals in the Wigan game prove that he WANTS to play for Fulham. I do agree with ROC on the whole. We need to bulk up our defence. Odoi is a great squad player, but other than our starting back four, we are painfully thin. MLM and CC are not good enough players to bring us back up.
posted by Dan (Guest) - Tuesday 08th October 2019, 3:20 PM
 
Overall. Another two points lost should have scored five second half 7 dropped at home points to teams we should h@ve beaten. Not to worry confident of automatic promotion DONT PANIC !!!!!!
posted by Len (Guest) - Tuesday 08th October 2019, 6:07 PM
 
Both Cabillero and Knockeart are good enough to play in the premier league. Their club managers do not consider them suitable for the way their respective clubs want to play.This also applies to our other loan players. They didn't come to us because they wanted to play in the championship. They came because they believed we could regain promotion, and they want to be part of that. Without our loan players, we have no chance of going up, so I agree wholeheartedly with the way the club is thinking. They had their fingers burnt last season, spending lots of money on players they hadn't seen perform. That wont happen this time.
