Not enough creative players and goal threats. Cav, RLC, Bobby Reid, Lookman, Abou, Neeskens, Maja ... are any of them PL players? Not a one. With TC injured and Mitro injured then starved of service in a system that doesn’t fit him... there was no way to stay up. Too many squandered chances, scuffed shots, missed pens, etc. Tony Khan did a great job buying half a team. He didn’t understand that we still needed two wingers plus a #10 and a #9.

Six games left, the time for tip tap toe is gone, what is now needed is for the team to each grow a pair, no passing back when there are acres of space to run with the ball, make every 50/50 ball yours, mark players not fresh air, run at defenders with the ball, they hate it, in conclusion, no more Mr Nice guy, be ruthless fight for every ball, maybe just maybe something good might happen, if not , at least you’ve gone down fighting.

When I watched Spurs lose to Man United, Spurs reminded me all the world like Fulham. We, like Spurs have taken the lead in so many games, and then start playing crab football, sideways, and often back towards our own goal, and Spurs are a blueprint of that, going on to lose again. They couldn't even hold a lead against a poor Newcastle last weekend. Isn't it strange how Scott Parker came from Spurs, playing the same type of football. Is that just a coincidence, or is that where he learned Parkerball ?

Good luck with that JRD, they should have been doing that for the last six games then we wouldn't be in this position.

Newcastle won today and improving as a team. So too little and too late. We’d to win at least 4 of the last 6 games. Impossible! If Newcastle had lost today I’d give Sarri a two million pound bonus to keep us! Sarri is probably only manager can make an immediate impact. But too late now..

Alan, Howe got Bournemouth relegated. Parker has shown himself to be a good coach, we have just fallen short over these last three crucial games. He is a young coach and in his first full season got us promoted, many clubs have failed to do to get out of the Championship. Parker will have gained so much from this season and must be a better coach as a result.

Nosey , Parker is not a good coach , have you seen how bad we have been in the last four games when it really matters . Tippy tappy sideways football played at a snails pace with no penetration and Loftus Cheek producing nothing then getting taken off to a welcoming cuddle by the manager

As much as it hurts me to say both Burnley and Newcastle played as they wanted to win not happy with a draw. Very little back or side to side passing unlike Fulham. Goals win games not clean sheets. Parker's team reminds me of when Bracewell was manager. draw draw draw. When teams like Fulham play out from the back the opposition have plenty of time to get organised. Man City do the same but quicker and the big difference they have skilled players that have the ability to beat the opposition defence. Even they slip up when a team attacks them directly with pace............... Look on the bright side Knockheart, Kamara Seri, Betinelli, Sessegnonn Johansen, Christie, Marchand, Kebano and Abraham plus Ream, Hector etc. will be back next year. With such a wealth of talent we will be back. Tony Khan has wasted so much money on buying players not fit for purchase and then tries to build a team with LOAN players. Tony Khan has set a good example to other clubs on how not to run a football club.

Think you’re basically right Fulham Boy. Would you seriously expect any better from a team of loanees. Whilst I’m sure they played to the best of their ability loanees don’t go that extra yard for their club, simply because it isn’t. Love Parker or loath him he had a bum deal and was dealt a losing hand by TK from day one. Knowing very late where we’d be playing and scrabbling for loan players in the hope of creating a team was never going to work. Feel sorry for SP under the circumstances he hasn’t done so badly, he did get them playing some decent football in patches but it just wasn’t sustainable. As the old sages amongst us will know consistency is everything. In the end we lacked quality and flair. We had no match winners, Just journey men with no deep seated loyalty or love for the club. We have the nucleus of a good Championship team, get our loanees back, maybe, just maybe keep a couple of the loanees currently with us, plus a couple of real good flair new signings(fingers crossed) and we could set ourselves up just as Wolves have proved is possible. If you’ve supported FFC like quite a few of us for 60/70 years it’s just a blip, good times are just around the corner. COYWs.

The time we had available to buy a team was so limited we had to use the loan route. If you employ a builder to improve your house you need to manage him well to see you can get the best out of him. If your have carefully chosen him, see work he has done before, make sure you have a good contract and that he does not have to many balls in the air at the same time you should get a good result.

Not that the Khans have good track record of providing a pathway from the academy to the first team. But we continue to dream.

Our club was promoted last season, despite having played some pretty dreadful football. We started the season without a hope in hell, and went on to create a real chance of staying up. Yes, we’ve failed, but look what’s been achieved. The club has made a shed load of money, and a new stand will soon be ready,,and we won’t be bankrupted by it.. Next year we will be competing with teams broken by the pandemic, and will be in a great place to start our fight back. We will come back stronger. Keep the faith

We have blown it so many times snd simply not good enough with the squad, no mental state to win a game and a really inexperienced manager. Add the clown Tony Khan and this was inevitable. So just remember Knockhart did not feature when coming up , we then buy him for £10m and loan him out to Notts Forest. THAT IS WHERE ALL OUR RECRUITMENT WENT TOTALLY. .DOWNHILL.. Feel really sad and anyone who says we still have a chance, please no more. Back to the yo yo game which Khan loves for ego.
Replies
A season full of false hopes, were shattered completely after six games, when we only picked up one point, and that was against Sheff Untd, who will join us next season. The trouble was from the start, that the words Fulham and winning, was hardly ever been able to be put into one sentence. and to only score 9 goals at home with two games to go, is an utter disgrace, in whatever division you are it. This should never, ever happen again in Fulham's history. I will expect to exceed that total after about 4 games next season. For once I almost feel ashamed to be called a Fulham supporter, but I will get over it in time for next season I suppose.

Marinner first. This guy always favours the big six teams. Against Leeds, 3 minutes added at 90. No stoppage yet Marriner allowed over 6 minutes. FFC v Liverpool denied us a penalty. Regarding PFB I see Burnley v Newcastle and both teams move the ball a lot quicker than FFC do. ^ Points available in 2 games. My forecast is FFC zero points. Hope I'm wrong but either way Parker has to go.

It used to be called getting stuck in, having a go and giving your all, none of which Parker knows. Every team we play seems to be fitter than us. Sad but Parker had chances of getting out of the bottom three and played the same tactics in those games and we performed terribly. Scott must go and a new Manager employed before next season

That's it then, and who really thought that a few weeks ago, that we would already be relegated with 6 games to go, but it doesn't matter now how many times Parker will say that we will go all out for wins, we all know that he is talking absolute crap, and I will be surprised now if we don't fold completely, and we will not win another game this season. The Championship will bring a blessed relief, as then we can really look forward to winning games regularly once again. Whether we get shot of Parker or not, we should still have a team capable of winning the league, and not messing about in a Wembley play off once again.
posted by Malden Mick (Guest) - Sunday 11th April 2021, 2:05 PM
 
I wish I had your optimism M.Mick, but I don't think the current bunch of Tony's misfits will cut it the Championship under Parker. Tony's overspend last time around puts any decent recruitment during the summer at risk. All we can hope for is that daddy Khan takes matters in hand and banish his son from the Club, but there's little chance of that.

It’s time to bring in Rafa Benitez whatever it takes and give him a manager role so he can purchase the players he wants. I rather be in the championship with rafa than staying up with scott
Replies
Bobby' Rafa will require a big money budget before he even signs a Fulham contract. Can you see the Khans calling out for Rafa? No chance, the Khans don't want any manager in with budget ideas because they will need to spend and that is not an option right now at this moment in time. Parker will do us nicely thank you and chuck back to us all our loanees out there and all our other players still hanging in there in the hope of getting games. I might be wrong and the Khans might be more ambitious than we thought? I don't think they are looking for a change any time soon and we will soon know if they do or not...

OK I agree that other teams play from the back BUT. Just watched Man C v Leeds. They do PFB but they move fast and only rarely did I see a short forward pass returned and forwarded again - a delightful play between 2 players. Not much side to side either. I did not notice any balls up field that bounced off the receiving player into space. At FFC that leads to about 50% of forward passes being lost i.e FFC players cannot control the ball. Finally PFB they move forward as a team and FAST. I don't believe Parker watches these games and learns much! Please go.

Scot Parker is soon to join a very exclusive club as a manager that has been relegated twice by the same club. What a difference a manager and a club that understand football can make. Roy Hodgson took over Crystal Palace when thay were firm favourites for relegation. Wolves, Aston Villa, Leeds all have progressed with good managers. WBA under Allerdyce if they manage to win the games they have over they will go above us( who would have thought that possible a couple of months ago) Fulham had a brief spell when they started to move the ball quickly and started to win, now they seem to have the attitude keep passing the ball and try not to lose rather than to try and win. Finally what signs are there under Parker that he is developing young players for the future. In the 70 years I have been watching we have always seen a young player come through. All Parker seems to do is keep shuffling the pack and hoping for a better hand.
Replies
That is not fair, the stats may say that but first time was already set before Scott took over. However, last season was, although we went up, the most awful I have ever seen us play, not worth paying money to watch.

Not quite. We've spent most of our history in the lower leagues and if we go down so be it. We could be back at the Cottage next season. What other supporters get to watch football in such aesthetically pleasing surroundings? A pleasant stroll up from Hammersmith after indulging in a few liviners in one of the pleasant pubs along the river or come the other way from Putney Bridge through the cloistered greenery that is Bishops Park. I've seen Chester City take us apart 4-1, listened as Bristol City chanted ' you're going down with the Rovers', been battered by the Border City firm on Munster Road and then there's that f*cking Michael Jackson statue.

One of my pleasures in life is, as you say, walking to Craven Cottage and to take in all in, every single time is special to me. However, if they play the way they did in the last Championship season I will not go as the passing in our own half for no reason drove me insane. It is always worth a shot although of course you lose possession. Who remembers Clints goal against England at the South Africa world cup. It is always, I'll say again, always worth a shot.

When with the missus, bring a lunch and a blanket from Putney Bridge. With the mates, attack the Cottage from the Hammy side. It really is a wonderfully unique ground. As good an experience in any sport anywhere in the world. A great day out no matter the result

I don’t know if a young manager like Parker really can influence the squad. I think he has more of a friend relationship instead of manager player relationship with the players

So we all knew that would happen,so its hallo to the championship again , twice in 4 seasons we have been the dregs or the prem bottom three all season ,first time a chocolate teapot defence caused most of problems now having cleaned that up we have a mid/f who create nothing, cant score and a strike force who are just useless.Norwich went down and kept most of quad, they will go up for sure ,however they will come back down again but lot richer which is what i think we will do, i will bet on them coming straight back up.Also i think we e\should delve into the lower div for some talent that is up for it ,we will be depleted after loanees go so start looking now.Will Parker be here? we need new face new ideas ,cant go on making dopey excuses after every game and boring the arse of every one ,why parker is raved about not sure , bottom 3 all season so whats so bloody brilliant about that . coyw give us a good season come august.No more the grouts at the bottom of the cup.

If Newcastle lose tomorrow, as long as we can match their results and gain one win (f@&k knows where that will come from But that’s another question) more than them until the last game, we still have a chance. On paper we have a decent/ok team and we have proved that but if just isn’t working . What we need is a SHOCK to the system and to turn things around with 6 games to go. Khan needs to make a decision today. If they want Parker for next season. Keep him. Otherwise, bring in a new manager for the last six games. If we want a slim chance of staying up, the team needs a big shock. I can’t see Parker doing that in the short term. So make a decision now.
Replies
Norwich kept Nigel Farke and it looks like it will pay off. We have gone down this road before with Slavisa who i now think we should have stuck with. The Khans don't seem ambitious or adventurous enough to go there with a Benitez can you imagine him at Fulham? It is all about spending money and budget management and i think most managers will be put off by the Khans reluctance to spend another 100 mill. So we have Scott Parker and i think we will stick with Scott Parker...

Look at how they have become established Premier league clubs while under Tony Khan's dreadful mismanagement we are almost certain to be relegated yet again.There is absolutely no point in Khan senior allowing his useless son to waste millions on inadequate players,while always ( and I do mean ALWAYS ) making hopelessly late signings in transfer windows thus making the job of any Fulham manager far harder then it should be.It has now got to the point where I am totally pessimistic about our club's future while Shahid Khan indulges in this appalling nepotism.

Since Khan bought the Jags, 39 wins. Next worst the Browns with 44 then the Jets with 51. He is an absolute incompetent sports franchise owner over two teams,two leagues, two sports and two continents. For those who don’t know the NFL, when so poor, you get the top pick in the amateur draft every year and you get the easiest possible schedule the next year. To be perennially pathetic every year in that league is quite a feat. Not a surprise whatsoever what we’re having to deal with.

posted by Kunye (Guest) - Saturday 10th April 2021, 10:46 AM
 
The manager has got to go on hoping but I can't. He says we had twice as many chances as Wolves, true but we never looked like scoring. Lots of long balls to Mitro, but we never looked like scoring. Lot of passing from the back and quite a lot of good progressive play, but we never looked like scoring. Have we gone backwards as a team or have we been found out by all the other teams. Even if Newcastle lose tomorrow I cannot see us winning any of our remaining games. Scott Parker was understandably gutted with the late suckerpunch that defeated Fulham on Friday night. The players were visibly distraught after Adama Traore’s stoppage time winner for Wolverhampton Wanderers, but when asked if it would be hard to bounce back, our Head Coach remained defiant. “It’s a tough one to take. It’s not going to be a tough one to bounce back from,” he insisted. “It’s a painful one tonight and you obviously see that in the scenes at the end of the game, in terms of this team, how desperate this team are to be successful. “I asked the team to show fight, to show desire, to leave everything on that pitch tonight, and to a man – and I include the boys who were on the side – we did that. That’s the cruel side of football sometimes. Terence Kongolo and Antonee Robinson are devastated at full-time “I’m older than these players, I’ve not just experienced painful things in football, I’ve experienced them in life as well. What’s going to be the deciding factor when you get put to the canvas, the real character of someone is to get back up, and we’re going to have to do that. “We’ve done that for large parts of this year. When the chips are down and we’ve been put down, we get back up and we fight and we carry on doing that. The narrative will be that this was a must-win game, of course it was, but next week’s going to be a must-win game as well. “We’ve put ourselves in this position, with a real fighting chance, because of what you’ve seen at the end of the game, a team and a group of players that are desperate, that care passionately about us being successful this year, and with that spirit and with that desire, you’ve always got a chance. “You’ve always got a chance. And that will be our mantra, and we will continue. Scott Parker reacts to Wolves' late winner “It’s painful, we’re hurt, disappointed tonight, but as always when this happens, you get your guard up and you come out swinging. And that’s what we’ll do.” Fulham had twice as many attempts on goal as Wolves in what proved to be a frustrating encounter. “I thought we did everything,” Parker said. “[They’re an] organised team, limited them to very few chances, and the longer the game goes on, we commit more men, we want to win the game, and a ball that drops either side doesn’t quite fall for us. “And then the game’s decided in the last minute when their boy has gone through at a tight angle and smashed one straight through. “That’s painful, of course, but my team did everything in their powers tonight to try and nullify Wolves who’ve got talented players, which we did, and on the flip side of that they tried their hardest to win the game.”

Adama Traore gets his goal at the 20th or whatever attempt and this is football and it is what it is. Put Traore in a Fulham team for a minute and you can just imagine what abuse and funky name-calling this guy would get on his twitter and whatever. 20 odd games and 1 goal? We have a footballer within our home that gets constant abuse for even trying and you guys can guess who? I wonder how or what abuse the Wolves fans give Traore week in and week out, that would be interesting to know? I really don't get it with Loftus Cheek. Parker made a balls-up by taking this guy off and Aina then we switch off and fall apart in the last minute and it hurt like crazy folks! Before i get lots of name calling to me now, let me elaborate further. Loftus Cheek missed a sitter of a goal i get that and yes, Loftus' head the blinking ball on target' just past the post sums it all up! If only Mitrovic had that chance some will say, he would have nailed it? This is our problem now in this Fulham team. We have tried Mitrovic and still trying him and all the others are on the pitch who are capable and should be delivering goals now and again. The inexperience and impatient Scott Parker did the wrong substitutions in this game in my opinion. Loftus missed a sitter, 'ok' thankfully he is getting into positions that all strikers can only dream about, but you know what? I would have been happy to keep him on and perhaps another experienced manager would have done the same. To take Mitro off for Maja would have been the right call because Mitro wasn't quite on it in this game period! Maybe we should have persevered with Jokanovic who everyone thinks is one-dimensional? Slavisa is gaining vast experience in quatar and he is on monster money. Sheff Utd would be lucky to get him in my opinion. If we are to go with Scott Parker going down in the Championship, i would say' we made our bed and we lay in it now. Why will the Khans sack Parker now nd why should they? Parker is a rookie manager and half don't like him, but we got him. I have supported him over-all and it is what it is now. I just wonder though if keeping Slavisa and making Parker work under him would have been a better option? It worked for Norwich by not sacking their manager and it looks like it will pay off for them. Fulham and fans have been too impatient all over and whatever. If we go down and it looks like it more than ever, get ready for the fire-sale. Andersen and co will be gone and that even that useless Loftus Cheek will be wanted by someone with more know-how about this game of football...
Replies
P.S and i wanted to say' welcome back Kamara and co, because they are all we got after the other lot go. The Khans seem happy to run this club the way how it is, and there is nothing we can do about it...

After the liverpool game our players got a bit carried away thinking it’s an easy task to stay in the league and Parker could have prevented this. Now it’s too late. Our squad is too long and mentally not strong enough. We haven’t won a single game when we were down says enough about our squad. Also sloppy mistakes. Like the pk from lookman against west ham. Mitro pk miss against Sheffield. Everton pk miss from cav. 2-2 draw against wba. Really I’m starting to dislike our squad even more than the 18/19 squad.

Failure to win against Villa and Wolves, both without key players and nothing to play for, is indicative of just how poor we are. Furthermore, the fact that there is zero discussion about Parker’s future is also indicative of the total lack of ambition at the Club. The mood among the players cant be great, as we now look to slip out of this league without a whimper. It would be good to hear from Khan

Parker is fantastic. We were never ready to be promoted. We lost first 6 or so and he turned team around with loan players. Amazing feat. We have run out of energy and luck and Mitro has been poor. Scott will stay and those who want instant success and sacking should go to Chelsea where the fans have no connection to the club. Scottie to stay and we have a great season in the championship which is a real competition. Prem league is TV. Asia bore

Some people are already living in fantasy land. Almost all the loan players will jump ship when we are relagated and what we are left with will not mount any sort of promotion challenge in the Championship. Be lucky to be mid table unless we get some better players in for next season.

Sorry mate but Parker is Clueless. He has turned nothing much around with us winning 5 games all season and losing the last four when we desperately needed goals and points. We never seem to have a shot on goal in the first half of any match and he changes nothing leaving us playing the same negative football every week. How has Mitrovic become a bad player when he goes off and scores in International games against good sides yet Parker plays his same football week in week out which doesn't work. Our defence is better but we were never going to score enough goals to win matches. We hear the same post match conference every week and how proud he is of our players who will be off elsewhere next season rather than play in the championship. He tells us how they are going to work hard and try to produce better but they never do. As someone said, Villa and Wolves without star players are there for the taking but not by us.

We were always going to struggle in the Premier and it’s a great shame because I don’t believe will are good enough to come straight back up.

Parker just hasn’t been able to get the balance right between being secure defensively and remain an attacking threat. The club should have realised that Mitrovic is not good enough at this level nor was AK. It was unwise to place our whole goal scoring on Mitrovic’s shoulders at the start of the season and that has been our main undoing. It is with no hindsight we say this as many on this board stated before the season started that we needed another striker.
Replies
Yep we could do with another striker but to support Mitro who is one of the few decent players we have. You don’t score 26 goals in the Championship and take the Club up without having something about you! He also was top scorer in a hopeless side during our last Premiership sojourn. The question is why hasn’t SP managed to utilise Mitros ability? Bottom line is with one or two exceptions - Mitro being one of them - we have no quality and a team of average Championship players
posted by Morph (Guest) - Saturday 10th April 2021, 8:17 AM
 
I wasn't completely surprised by Parkers after match interview, as it was the sort of interview I was expecting, which was utter nonsense. How could he say that he was proud of the team, and they way they fought until the end. What match was he watching. We did not fight until the end, and we rolled over to a team that will probably be in the relegation zone themselves next season. Why didn't he just say, that we played really badly, and we were so lucky not to be a goal down in the first half, with that joke VAR taking away a perfectly good goal from Wolves. No Scott, you should try to be honest with our fans and yourself, and admit that both you and the team are out of our depth in this league. Newcastle, Burnley, Brighton, Palace and Southampton, are also out of their depth, in the Premier League, but they seem to muster enough points to survive, and I might add, that we have not beaten any of these sides. I rest my case.

Yes we all know things haven’t been good enough this season but the ride along the way has been interesting, always nail biting and occasionally fun. The Board and Parker have made mistakes, Parker will be a much better coach from this experience and we must stick with him. We have a first class owner for so many reasons. And, looking to life back in the Championship next season we have the framework of an excellent team, Rodak, Robinson, Bryan, Kongolo, Hector, Tosin, Christie, Odoi, Reed, Anguissa, Cairney, Cavaleiro, Mitrovic, D-R - and we might buy Maja be great to get Lemina. We will take another few loans and will make a few purchases. We all expect to bounce back immediately. Yes it has been a difficult season, we all knew it would be so what’s the surprise?

The Club is in terrible state , 5 loan players started last night's match and then Maja came on late another loan player and if Lookman had been fit no doubt he would have started making it 7 . The team is built on sand ! No home grown young players to step up the future looks bleak . I'm reluctant to say this but the time has come for SP and his team to call it quits and step down immediately before being pushed and allow some experienced manager/coach to come in with a view to building some sort of team that can compete in the Championship next season although I don't have much faith in the owners to pick the right replacement . There is no point in the fans picking a fight with the Khans the bottom line is they own the Club 'lock stock and barrel' although it would be in everyone's interest if they sold it but of course they would incur a huge loss on their investment .
Replies
Yes, we get all understand mistakes have been made this season, which historically was caused by our last Premier league residency. Tony Khan foolishly believed the moronic media purporting the myth that we spent too much and changed the team too much which is why we got relegated. On both occasions the Championship team we got promoted with was not good enough and needed wholesale changes, last time we bought poorly this time we bought too late and only on loan.

Dear Mr Shadid Khan, I'm very happy that you have invested in my football club especially with the upgrading of our famous ground on the banks of the Thames. So far its been a fairground ride, up and down like a roller cosster. Maybe that's the way you like it? American sports dont tend to have promotion and relegation. But, as a lifelong fan, I have to tell you that the best day was getting to the premier League by beating Villa at Wembley...that was so good, then you let your boy loose, he went crazy signings expensive players keft right and centre and destroyed what Jokanovic built. Its been that way ever since. Pleae take Tony's hands off the rails and put a football man in charge who understands our passion for the game. You wouldnt put Pep Guardiola in charge of an nfl team so why let Wrestling fan Tony in charge at the cottage?

This was an excellent period of recruitment for Tony Khan in terms of defenders, defensive midfielders, and a keeper. But he didn’t clean house quickly enough. Needed a real football man to ask, “Where are the goals coming from?” ... and to see that Seri, SteJo, Abou, MLM, etc were NEVER going to contribute. RLC was a mistake. Cav, Bobby Reid, Lookman, Maja — none is PL quality. With TC hurt, there is no creativity in the team. Parker has no levers to pull really.

Tonight is a good example of poor planning by the scouts, the owner and the manager. Scouts and Manager unable to see what everyone else could..the lack of attacking options that are good enough for the Premier League. If the scouts and manager could see it then it is all down to a bad owner. Accepting that we will be relegated unless the teams around us are unable to field a team for the next 7 games. Loftus Cheek on loan will I hope not be still at FFC next season......Areola will want more than we can offer.....Anderson will not want to stay, why should he....Lookman another who will want better than FFC...Lemina might stay ....Aina will want better....Maja we have not seen enough of him. Brilliant management by the owner leaving us in a position of so many on loan players that we have to replace next season in the championship and start all over again. If the club had bought a couple of decent strikers it could have been so different. Watkins..Benrama...Ezza all were available yes they were not cheap but how much money will the club lose now by under investing.

These guys are gone if we get relegated. Get used to the idea that we will have Kamara and co back...

If as you say Kamara will be back, then I for one won't be. I fully intend to renew my season ticket in the Championship, but definitely NOT, if Kamara returns, as they in Dragons Den. I'm out.

Malden Mick' i heard on the grapevine that Andersen's agent is touting him about to Man Utd and Andersen's old club has valued him at 25 million. The harsh reality is that all the loan players will be gone and we will re-call all our loanees if back in the championship. If we scrape survival, will our owners cough up 25 mill for Andersen and buy Lookman ect? We don't fully know the ambitions of our owners after the building of the new stand? Kamara is likened to a bull in a china shop and he comes with the princely price-tag of 5 mill. The Khans look the type to re-coup and use this situation to build Fulham on a shoe-string budget? Unless our owners show some more interest than a fleeting look over their shoulders...

Too much risk cost us dearly in this one, and we are one foot closer to the trapdoor. Parkers gambles didn't pay off because we are devoid of ideas in the final third. What isn't broke don't fix it, and i am referring to Aina. I understand our need and urgency to score goals and to win the game, but the taking of Loftus and Aina opened the trap door. Lemina is a luxury player who isn't as good as Parker see's him. If anybody is to be sacrificed, it should be Lemina first choice. We gamble in our quest for goals i understand, but not at the expense of losing our shape in defence. Scott Parker got that so horribly wrong tonight and it is not looking good for our rookie, you could see the disappointment when his head dropped to the wall. I feel for him, but his changes lost our shape and cost us big time. Just like that Korean guy that gambled too many times on the stock market, Parker's gambles didn't pay off. They say Sessegnon isn't a prem league player? I just wonder in this present set-up, if he was able to link up with these better players around him these days? We will never know if that question is valid because the likes of Andersen will be going to utd or some other top team for 25 million if we go down, never mind the others who we will lose. If we go down, we can expect the likes of Kamara back because we won't have the likes of Maja etc. We are not down yet, but Scott Parker will need to lift our guys, and that is a big task after this loss. This is a bad day all round....

So baffling. No real intent to attack and score in a must win game against a totally out of form team! RLC is an embarrassment. Such a lame header and how someone with that physique gets out muscled every single time is mind boggling. Sad reality is that Parker (and players) were hoping for a goal, not expecting one and that comes down to poor training and no motivational leadership. Saddest part is that a crap Newcastle will be laughing tonight...
Replies
Well that's it then, we are back where we started. If Scott Parker is going to be our manager in the Championship, start planning now for at least two fast wingers, to supply Mitro with at least more scoring chances. Don't be too downhearted, as this time next season we will be getting ready to celebrate winning the Championship.
posted by A C (Guest) - Friday 09th April 2021, 10:25 PM
 
This is why we lost! At least Loftus Cheek can get into positions of real intent. Traore scored his first goal in '20' games!!!!!!!!!!! If Traore was Loftus Cheek, he would have been lambasted by you guys a long time ago!!!!!!!! Learn the dynamics of football!!!!!!! Loftus is coming back from a long-term injury but at least he is trying and he is the very few we have who looks threatening or even likely to score goals. 20 games for Traore before delivering one goal, what is that about??? Parker took off the wrong guys and we got it badly wrong. Loftus Cheek isn't a problem, we have bigger problems than Loftus Cheek, get over it!!!!!!!

Not sure which match(es) you’ve been watching Owen to think that RLC has been playing with ‘intent.’ I’ve never seen such a 50:50 bottler. Just don’t get what he’s meant to be...not a striker (doesn’t score), winger (can’t cross), attacking midfielder (gets dispossessed when running with the ball.) So I’d love to know what he does bring to the team..... Should have played two strikers for longer, Anguissa as a driver for longer. Instead we played safe, plodding sideways football with no desire. Dispiriting really. And Lemina crying at the end....

Where do you start? Inability to cross a ball kills us. Why, why RLC anywhere near the pitch? Can Robinson with all his pace not go past a player on the outside? AIna not at the races (again) and VAR saved him as he ball-watched at end of 1st half. Too much farting about going backwards and sideways. Anguissa did pretty well coming on. Maja strolled about when he should have been sprinting to close down. Reed decent again. Bad error by Areola right at the end but to be fair he's saves us so many times. Thought Andersen could have got a block in. Mitro plodding but generally isolated, just not Prem calibre. Lamina tried. Kongolo looked good - shame he's not been available. It will take a miracle for us to escape relegation - best chance may be if Newcastle swoop right now for Parker. Gutted. I have probably stated so much that is so bloody obvious that I might have become Glenn Hoddle...

How many chances did we have,basic problem all these overpaid prima donnas don’t know how to put our chances away.Top scorer Reid 5 midfielders virtually got 5 between them all season 2 massive opportunities to catch Newcastle not taken. If we do manage to finish above them they really need to lose almost every game.

You’d think we had 15 games left. Same tactics week in week out. There’s a reason why we are in bottom 3. Zero points from last three games tells you all you need to know. Time for Mr P to admit to his limitations and go. Send the loan players back, bring on the u23s and prepare for championship.

We must get rid of Parker now, never looked like scoring and no energy in midfield because of the way we set up. The situation tonight demanded aggression, spirit and passion, we had none of it, constantly passed the ball back throughout the game, chaotic changing of position every time Parker made a substitution. Do the decent thing Parker and go tonight.
Replies
I have never been one to jump on the Parker out bandwagon, but after tonight, I unfortunately have to jump on board. Only Fulham could have lost that game, as Wolves were awful. We missed Lookman tonight but that's no excuse.

I feel a little sorry for Scott but the truth is we will never have any success whilst Daddy lets Tony hold the reins. Tell Tony to go off and play full time with his wrestlers and put a proper football man in charge who can build his own squad, not try to mould Tony's.

This is the thing Alan' Loftus Cheek is the only player worth talking about because he is the only player on that pitch who conjures up a threat. He missed but i would rather we keep him on to miss again and then maybe he scores one just like Traore did. 20 games counting and Traore sinks us. I don't think that Loftus Cheek goes 20 games like that without scoring? Who else looks a threat in this Fulham side? Is there anyone else worth talking about?

OWEN pleeeeaase stay off the wacky backy or whatever it is you are on.. "conjures a threat" ?? He conjures sweet FA and everyone else can see it except you. I get that you can only focus on one player at a time ie. AK47 last year, but really you need to put the keyboard away for a while.

You can't play attacking football unless you pick attacking players. I doubted our starting 11 and was unfortunately proved right. If you want to attack you don't rely on Tete and Robinson.
posted by NRL (Guest) - Friday 09th April 2021, 10:06 PM
 
Well we never thought we had any attacking talent really or did we? Who dribbles past someone with some pace on this team? Anguissa maybe but he generally is too far from goal. Who scores goals on this team? At the end of the day, when looking back, our best results we did achieve when playing ultra conservatively. Many around here were moaning back then, but if you don’t have quality enough players, it’s maybe better to just not get any goals against. That being said, last week was harsh, this week also. Always the guy who cannot find the net for their current team somehow manages to score against us... sigh. Newcastle are still there for the taking and their schedule is brutal but where do we get any points from really? Pretty discouraging past few weeks. :(

What a load of rubbish Fulham are playing, at the back passing for the sake of passing, I’ve lost count how many times Aina has passed the ball backwards when he has acres of space infront to run with the ball. Upfront we haven’t a clue, we make it so easy for the opposition to defend against, nobody is making little runs into the channels, our only real chance fell to Loftus Cheek and he failed miserably. If we don’t improve in the second half I’m afraid its the end of the road.

I couldn't see anything wrong with Wolves goal but there you go, sometimes you need a little bit of luck. The return of Robinson is good for us and he looks lively and willing to put balls in. Loftus Cheek should have put that header on target at least. Robinson was rightly dropped and he now knows that to keep his place, he must deliver from our left side and do his defensive duties properly. Dare i say it? We haven't missed lookman so far. Robinson' my son' bring home the bacon, deliver those balls in!!!!!!
