Interesting programme about receiving cold calls and the best method of dealing with them. I've always found that telling them to sod off does the trick
Replies
Ask them to hold on for a moment, put the phone down and walk away. There is more satisfaction though in telling them to eff off, but this way wastes their time.

If we loose on Saturday,and by a margin,do you think the Khans will approach POCH, could be a possibility, and a move should it come off would meet with my approval,what say you.
Replies
He was reportedly earning 7.5 million a year at Spurs, has european giants hovering around him, and coached a team to the Champions league final. He is also under contract for 3 more years and probably forfeits all or a large chunk if he takes another job. Obviously the allure of the Cottage could be overwhelming.

With Mourinho's track record with younger players is dire. Can see Sess being moved on in Jan for game time or sold in summer as its well known he likes expierance players close to 30 mark. Can you see levy bending over backwards for the one time special one.
posted by Never say die ! (Guest) - Tuesday 19th November 2019, 10:10 PM
 
Mourinho wouldn't last more than a season at Spurs,he is too expensive for Daniel Levy who will not have the patience to tolerate Mourinho. New defenders will cost Spurs 70-80 mill each plus. Sess is not a strong enough left back to cope at Spurs, this move has not worked out well for him now. Pochettino sacking was not really a surprise with Spurs indifferent results and let's face facts here, they won't be winning anything this year yet again. If Mourinho gets the job, he will maybe prioritise one of the cups, maybe FA or something. Even that will prove difficult to win now, especially when the prem title looking like it is Liverpool bound. If that's the case, Guardiola will make it his duty to mop up the remaining cups...

I don't think Levy will let him spend too much dosh. Can't see Sess getting too much playing time , better to be a big fish in a small pond ( FFC ) than a small fish in a big pond (Spurs )
posted by Dave (Guest) - Wednesday 20th November 2019, 6:40 PM
 
Just wondered what sort of trophy Mourhino will win? The stats don't look good for Spurs concerning trophies. I think the last trophy was a league cup and i can't even remember when that was. The fact is when Man Utd do eventually get their act together, the scraps for the league cup or milk cup etc will be fierce. When Man utd finally bring the axe down on Ole Soltsjar who is no better than Scott Parker and was a ridiculous appointment by a supposedly top team, Chelsea will come back into the playground with bravery and youth, and they will surprise and shake-up the big guns. Southgate will surely follow the blu-print for the world cup. Mourhino had the field of play to himself mostly when he won most of those trophies in the early days. Man utd and occasionally Arsenal took the odd trophy, but no Guardiola or klopp in those days. No matter how good or how special Mourhino thinks he is, there won't be many trophies coming to the Spurs cabinet. We Fulham need to wake up and smell the bull...t, Parker will not get us prem football, and is a replicant and a wannabe Slavisa. Slav got us to the prem, so let's see if my theories are right or wrong. I don't mind being wrong mind you, and if Parker does the business, i will be the first one to congratualte him...

Owen you can’t say that Sess won’t make it at Spurs when he hasn’t played, he left us and that’s was his decision. He wanted to better himself. Laudrup is your choice and was your decision Spurs was Ryan’s decision that’s it. It’s a Shame that AK didn’t mimic Sess though. Oh by the way I’m not smelling the BS I’m reading it every time you post.
posted by Gaz (Guest) - Thursday 21st November 2019, 5:48 PM
 
Chief' i would suggest that Scott Parker is more obsessed by Slavisa more than me. Look at our style, playing out from the back, (Slavisa). Attack and wing play (Slavisa). If anyone can point out anything or tactics that are truly part of Parkers identity i will be surprised. Management is also the little subtle changes that make a difference and so far there has not been many from Parker. Slavisa did have suttle changes here and there and subs that changed the game. He messed up big time back in the prem but we all know that there are good reasons for that. With this team now which is a better balance than Slavisa'a, if Scott Parker will be successful, we will need to cut out the indifferent form and so so results. I would argue that an immediate change of personnel now back to Slavisa, we would have a better chance of promotion. What would challenge and motivate Slavisa who had a nearly chance with Fulham and Watford before hand? Another chance with his big prodrige mitrovic who he was responsible for bringing to Fulham. Apparently, we may well lose Mitrovic in January, a word i heard on the grapevine. In a ideal world we would want Ponchetinho but no chance with that one. Let's see if Parker can get this team on a winning spree starting with QPR tomorrow night. I can warm to Scott Parker so long as we pick up some decent results now. I couldn't care if Parker puts on a Slavisa suit and start talking like him. So long as we start winning, thats what counts. Without Mitrovic tomorrow, it is the perfect time to see if Parker can stamp his own tactics and way of playing.

Gaz, we all know that Mourinho will buy a ready seasoned player ahead of Sess, and ask yourself the question? Rose or Sessegnon? Rose every time, he is stronger and quicker...

Mitrovic's absence underlines our squad is short on numbers, quality and defenders. The articles on Fulham New Now asking fans to vote whether the club will be promoted are stupid, with this squad Fulham will be lucky to be in the top ten. Consistency has been lacking throughout so far and some players are simply not Championship squad players. We did not have a team with the quality for the Prem last season and now even with the parachute payments we do not have a squad for the Championship. Joke management is to blame.

Replies
I think it could be AK-47'S chance to shine, and shine he must! QPR at the home of Craven Cottage. Kamara must come out, all guns blazing and score at least 2 goals and let's say go one better, a hattrick!!! There is no time like now to shoot that ball in between 2 sticks, how hard is that? If Kamara doesn't come up with the bullets, Oz Nick can point out the stinkiest Billabong in Aussi land and we can fire the AK from a catapult straight down the middle. 'DORIS' GET READY FOR THE AK ROADSHOW!!! There is a lyric line from a Deep Purple song. ' 2ND Verse, 'See the blind man shooting at the world, bullets flying ohh' taking toll, Here's hoping Kamara hits the target, and we don't need to take notice of the closing verse which goes like this, 'you'd better close your eyes Ooohhh bow your head, wait for the ricochet!!!! We don't want any Ricochet's off the post or worse, from the stands because that would be terrible. Come on AK-47 Kamara, you can do it!!!

I think Bobby the decorator would be better up front with knocker and Cav playing either side but just behind him. We can then play five at the back with wing backs. Speed is the essence but have Reed and Arter filling in and protecting the defence. Leave Cairney on the bench for when we go three up. As long as we score more than them we will win.

Agree time is running out for Kamara. Mitro is out for this game and maybe a full 90 minutes will give him time to shine. I think he will know how important this time is at Fulham. It's simple, put that ball past the keeper if through. Kamara will get chances because he has the pace. I wish the guy well but at the end of the day, i want promotion and there is no time for sentiments in football. This goes for Christie too and all our fringe players...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Monday 18th November 2019, 3:38 PM
 
Sounds like a plan Optimistic. Agree about the decorator up front, supported by Cav and Knocker. No AK....please, unless it’s the last 10 minutes when it’s either desperation or it just doesn’t matter.

In a bar somewhere, an Englishman, a Frenchman and an Austrailian were discussing life over a few pints. It didn't take long for the subject of sexual gratification to come up and, in particular, the best way to get a woman aroused. Personally, said the English chap, I take a small downy feather and gently run it up and down her body until she surrenders totally to the raptures of desire. Works every time, he said, drives them to paroxisms of delight. I am more inclined to using an ice cube, said the Frenchman; gripping it between my teeth I move it around her breasts and thighs allowing the slow melt to intermingle with the frosty cold. It sends her into a form of erotic trance that fulfills her every fantasy. C'est tres magnifique. Well mates, said the okker, I just throw 'er on the bed, give 'er a good seeing to and then I wipe my dick on the curtains. It really drives her insane.

There are no concerns or injuries to our talisman Mitrovic as we speak, but we must be very switched on that if Mitro does pick up an injury, we are in trouble! Where will the goals come from if Mitro picks up an injury? Bobby Reid, for all his industrious forward play and looking like he will bag a hat-trick when he finally gets some playtime, nil poi, no goals! Knockheart, with all his trickery in the box, no goals! AK-47 Kamara for all his 5 minutes plus add-on times here and there, no goals! I must add that Kamara is still on a learning curve and not as much is expected of him but to run the clock down. That is what Parker uses him for. The best of the rest from our recent recruits do have much more experience and game-time, especially in the Premiership. True, we are in a half-decent position to break into the top 3 after the international break but we have to be mindful and there are genuine concerns, ifs and buts. Mitrovic is in a rich vein of form and he is proving resiliant and tough as they come, but he isn't bullet-proof, he is still human. The big-man has carried the front line for so long now that even i take it for granted that he will always be there 24-7, week in and week out. If you have noticed that the bigger squads like Liverpool send private jets out to chauffer back the likes of mane from is country. We don't have those luxuries to molly-cuddle and to wrap our star players in cotten wool. What we do have back here at the Cottage is a guileless feeling and hope that Mitrovic will roll on and off the pitch forever. We must screen our talisman and sometimes not be so reliant on the big man, but what can we do to achieve that? Over to Scott Parker and one very last thoughts and request' Please have some contingency plan in case of injury, and more, much more penetration and goals from our remaining forward set-up because we will fall dastically from our perchy heights if Mitrovic gets sick or injured...

Thing is, he plays a totally different brand of football to what we've been playing since Jokanovic came.For Warnock to make sense our players would have to change every aspect of how they play or we would need to change a lot of our players. Saying that, I figure he'd get more out of our defence who don't seem naturally comfortable in possession and that, I believe, lies at the heart of a lot our problems.

We win the next game and Parker isn't going anywhere. He's dealing with some big egos that simply aren't putting a shift in. Cavaleiro, Knockaert, Arter and Mawson are not playing to their potential. It may or may not be the system, I don't know, but I'm fairly sure it's not the coaching. We may have hired in reputation rather than talent.

Forget the current generation, there’s not one modern player in the selection. Most recent is probably Ashley Cole! Really Ashley one of our best?? Anyway, I wonder if we put the selected XI again the current modest England team, what would be the score? I would hazard a guess the current team can win 10-0!! Why? The physicality like a tackle from the best XI will not be acceptable nowadays. Any cheating (kicking the heal, pushing etc) on the field would be picked up by the VAR, and most importantly the speed and pace difference between the players, they would have no chance!! The advantages the current players have is technology, including scientific diet! So begs the questions how do you select the best from the past and current!!?

Was all this trouble over (6' 5")Joe Gormez and our dearly loved Raheem getting out of his box and being well racist?

Touch of the Neymar or Ronaldo about Sterling no question about his talent and work rate but I don't see any affection for the teams he plays for rather the emotion he shows comes from his desire to win which is not the same thing as love for the badge.

Not many footballers are loyal these days Rich. Watching that game, Stirling was constantly bumped and barged and booed. He was a bit naughty when he clipped Van Dyke towards the end of that game, but Van the man is a big boy, he can handle that. It is all about head games when a rival player comes back to Liverpool and they got into Sterlings head. Call that one-nil and put the guy off as much as possible and it worked! Did Southgate make the right call in dropping Stirling? It is only a good decision if Kane or whoever comes up with goals. Joe Gomez to score? Very unlikely. They say that Man City buy titles which is true up to a point. Funny they still missed Kompany who is not necessarily the best defender but still very vital to their campaign. Some would say that Wolves bought their way from the Championships and Fulham have the might of the prem payments and prem ready players, according to the Birmingham boss.

The internationals are here once again and the usual suspects will be suited and booted and lacing up for their beloved counties starting with our talisman Mitrovic. The Republic of Ireland will no doubt make a call to Christie who featured in our winning away performance where no goals were conceded, fantastic! We have played out these scenarios before with Christie and a few others i might add. Can Christie nail down a permanent position at right-back for Fulham? Ireland is a different kettle of fish and i think that Roy Keane could come down from his comfort chair in that insular warm studio and slot in anywhere where they accommodate Christie. I am happy for him and with no goals conceded against Brum, Christie is a happy-chappie according to his tweets. This time now is a perfect time and setting for all fringe players who do not feature in many games for Fulham to nail down a position in this team. We need a really good run at home and away leading up to Xmas and beyond. Our indifferent results are a mixture of a dolly sweet mix and smarties and allsorts, we need to hit that sweet-spot and not just plod along in first to second gear. The January sales are near and it is really the last chance saloon for a lot of bench warmers now. Christie, Kamara, and co, take that chance! Find, seek the holy grail, and grasp it! Our prem spot beckons! P.S, 'Kamara' please score some goals pronto! 'Our Doris is having a fit. 'Please give her something to smile about!!!!!!!!!!

OWEN I confess I rarely rad your posts right to the end but I'm so glad I did this time it did make me smile. Christie is a very, very decent human being from everything I read but I remain unconvinced at his ability to play at this level. AK is a knob on and off the field and should be shunted at the earliest opportunity. If we got 5 bob for him it would be a result.

Christie never seems to play as well for us as he does in internationals. I am not sure yet another return from international duty to the Championship will show any improvement
posted by The Time Is Now - Monday 18th November 2019, 2:26 PM
 
Friday night is maybe the time to cement his position at right-back for us or he might need more time still? Internationals can sometimes take the edge of some players depending on fitness etc. I cannot figure Christie out. He looks good going forward but sometimes his delivery lets him down. The crunch thing is the defending at the end of the day. Is he a good defender or not? So far, not so good. Improvement wise, he will need a vast improvement in the defending department, but so do a few of our boys. Scott Parker needs to be streetwise in footballing terms here because our league situation can go one way or the other. These games leading to Xmas i think he needs to identify and finalize his favoured 11 and that will be a tricky permutation considering our defence. Upfront, we need guys like Knockheart to step up and chip in with goals. Mitrovic wil have a well-deserved break and his suspension has done him a big favour in my opinion. The guy is only human and we need him fit for the big push towards promotion. I make jokes about Kamara and i hope he shines through for himself. The fact is we need goalscorers to help Mitro and Kamara will have his chances but time will run out on that one sooner or later. I want us to push for promotion this season so if we are thereabouts? Scott Parker must go cap in hand to the Khans and bolster our squad for the big push. I don't know about the ratio of squad members, but i would think that we should have a mini clear-out also in january...

Van Der Sar by a long chalk was Fulhams best keeper. There is no better keeper that can throw the ball out accurately from defence to attack. The safer option now is to lob it out underarm to the nearest defender which is not always a sign of confidence.

He stayed with us for 4 years which is a fair amount of time . He may have been our most expensive goalkeeper at £7 million but we have spent that much before and got nothing.

It's interesting how many really good goalies we've had. Could that be because our defence is normally so bad (with the exception of Roy's boys) that the goalies get plenty of practice and opportunities to show how good they are? Macedo was great on his day - and remember he didn't get the protection they get today - but he had inexplicable off-days, such as the semi-final replay against Man U in 1958 (we woz robbed!). Exciting though Macedo was, Van der Saar was more consistent.

EDVS kept us in the Premier League for four years almost on his own. We have never had any other keeper even close to his ability. In fact we have hardly had an even half decent keeper since in comparison. Having a top keeper behind the defence give them such confidence as they know if they inevitably make a mistake most of the time he will save them.

I was reading an article today, with regards to Scott Parker talking about Rodak. It was full of praise for our keeper and it's quite obvious now that he is our number one keeper over Betts, and on Saturday's showing he probably is. I was very pleased with our win at Birmingham on Saturday, and while watching the highlights of the match, I noticed that we were playing in our normal club colours and not in our away strip. I am always of the opinion that we play far better away from home if we play in our proper Fulham shirts, as I think that the players are proud to wear our colours, and they pull out the stops more, or is that my imagination. We seem to change our gear when it is not necessary. Why ?

Regarding the kit think it’s down to kit supplier or sponsor,as far as Rodak is concerned think he’s earned his place with a great display at Birmingham where as there keeper possibly cost them the points.

Parker should have introduced Rodak much sooner, especially after his Southampton performance. Bettinelli has shown to have attitude and indeed and capability problems and has cost us points. I for one am glad Marek has been given the shirt. It' now up to Bettinelli to win it back if he's up for the challenge.

Most successful clubs get the right keeper in and they stay, i think we've used about 20 keepers since the year 2000. With Betts I could see him being with us for life but instead we will have the same merry go round we always have. Our club culture is terrible. Hopefully Rodak and Betts will push each other on and improve but i want a settled team of young players kept together for a lengthy amount of time and see where it takes us

I second that Kunye'. All the soft sentimental fans didn't see our wasted points tally building up with betonelli in goal. Not saying Radak is the finished article and prem quality, he needs to keep improving. There was always a nervousness when Betonelli splayed the ball around if thats the right word and his constant slow the game down approach which puts doubts into players heads to run or walk in what direction. I don't think that Betonelli knows why or when to kick or rush. There is no anxiety felling with Rodak if that makes sense.

We've had a number of good, excellent and world class keepers since I've been going to the Cottage. Macedo was excellent but had his crazy moments. He pulled off a save at the Putney end that was bound for the top right hand corner, an almost unstoppable rocket, arriving from nowhere six feet off the ground and parallel to it to fingertip the ball around the post for a corner. A few minutes later Keetch gave him a simple backpass from outside the box which he let slide through his legs and trickle over the line. Great to watch and a great servant to the club. Peyton was excellent too, commanding and steady but the accolade for best must be between VDS and Schwartzer and I wouldn't like to pick between them. Bettinelli is a good keeper with potential, but no more than that.

Sick of all these debates about VAR obviously a major cock up by the f a players actually complaining I know it’s tough for supporters waiting up to 4 minutes before celebrating a goal ,penalty whatever. It’s only because the players were and still are cheating/conning referees otherwise wouldn’t of even happened!
Replies
VAR is a symptom of our society, when now no one is prepared to accept the decisions that are made by the match officials. The players cheat - dive and take our money for substandard performances. While I agree not everything was better in the 1950's or 1960's, but players never seemed to get injured so badly, could converse with one another in our common English language - and I've heard so great banter over the years from the players and fans at the Cottage. By the way we did win the World Cup in 1966 with an team composed of English players! VAR is a blight on football and stops the free flowing of a game that is now probably played too fast anyway. What would Bobby Moore have made of the pace Liverpool and City play at then they on song?

VAR is a logical consequence of the generation of spoilt brats who insist everything must be perfect and cannot deal with anything going against them. Although sport is meant to be all about winning , the true purpose is to learn how to lose and get over it, learn your lesson and move on. As Beckett said, "fail again, fail better". Learning to accept a setback in a trivial activity such as sport better equips you to deal with real issues such as losing your job, wife etc... VAR could be useful for dealing with outrageous injustices such as Thierry Henri's handball v Ireland, Jeff Astle's goal v Leeds of Maradanna's hand of God but in the final analysis it's worth remembering it's not the end of the World, just possibly the end of the World Cup

Who are these people campaigning to change the rules of how our beautiful game is played so that no longer will players be allowed to head the ball to avoid Alzheimer's in later life? They can only point to Jeff Astle England and WBA player and Chris Sutton's dad apparently. When will political correctness not butt out of our lives and let us get on with it. In Hampshire I hear Animal Revolution are harrassing the old (and young)boys who like to go fishing, because it cruel to fish. Well I played football for many years and although some on this site say I am half balmy I don't think its affected me at all. Oh, I eat fish being Danish and wear a full length leather coat - presumably the cow was alreay dead when the made it so get over it you snowflakes.

Sadly too many of these idiots who are unable to adapt to the modern world feel obliged to drag us back to the good old days when open coal fires were the greatest cause of death but to campaign for clean air would probably cause you to be called a snowflake. All these morons who complain about health and safety should be excluded from the NHS as they seem to prefer sickness and danger. Let's go back to the days of heading heavy leather balls, head high tackles in rugby, regular deaths in motor racing, when men were men and felt entitled to beat the crap out of anyone they didn't like.

Make people aware of the dangers inherent in all walks of life by all means, but don't legislate against their free will to choose their own path through the acceptance of risk.

You assume that most people know what's best for themselves when the evidence clearly shows they don't. There's a fine line to be drawn between individual freedoms and and protecting people from themselves. I agree it can sometimes seems a bit overindulgemt but if you look back at the opposition to safety measures introduced ages ago and try to imagine life without them now you'll see that the "nanny state" is more often than not shown to be have been right

Shown to be right or not, it's still a dictatorial philosophy that brooks no dissent, a very "cultish" trait. The ever intruding cult of Health & Safety is driven by those who are invariably risk averse in their own lives and wish to impose their superior judgement on all others. Advise and educate by all means, but refrain from imposition of often flawed concepts on those who choose to educate themselves and think accordingly.

Another subject we touched on was fireworks - now that the firework season seems to be over till next year,read a letter from a Bosnia war veteran who found rhe loud ( very loud) explosions bought back bad memories for him and wondered if the very loud fireworks should be available from shops,in the old days November 5th was the only night you heard them, now pet owners have to endure weeks of noise which affects their animals.

I can as an old geezer see both sides of this, we don’t want anyone to suffer with injuries in any sport, football however is a contact sport and some players made a decent career by being good in the air. I must say though the risks now have been drastically reduced by the game itself. Today’s style is not to allow the keepers to lump it up the pitch for the centre forward to flick it on with his head, this means the centre halves have less heading to do. Corners and free kicks are usually played short, unless it’s in the last five or ten minutes and teams are trying to win and throw everyone up the park. Footballers knew what they were signing up for, it’s a physical game. It is part and parcel of the game. Over the years the safety of footballers has been improved a lot, lighter footballs, lighter boots, better surfaces, superior medical staff at clubs (no more muddy water and a rotten magic sponge if you got a knock), better diets, better training and fantastic rewards. Anything that can be done to keep people, in any walk of life safe is fantastic and should be applauded, however, it must be done with everyone in mind. As a fully paid up member of the old gits gang I can remember looking forward to watching centre forwards who excelled in the air, most teams had one, they also had a tough bloke at the back. Health and safety will keep improving but it will be done over a period of time. Let’s just hope it’ doesn’t affect the the game too much.

I'm not resistant to change when there's compelling reasons to make a change, either in law or in attitude, but there has to be an element of common sense which is often lacking. The overriding concern in many cases of "nanny knows best" is the fear of what might happen, not what has happened or what may indeed happen in rare cases. I'm sure some kids have suffered eye damage from playing conkers but without hard data it's difficult to justify banning the game thus penalising the many for the sake of the (undocumented) few. This same fear manifests itself in the Brexit debate where no amount of reasoned debunking eliminated the bogeyman lurking under the bed. As somebody noted above, one of the major H&S drivers is the fear of being sued and I accept that as a genuine concern that the powers that be might better spend their time addressing than trying to deconflict everything to the point where all risk is eliminated and life is sanitized to the extent of no longer being worth living. Glass of red wine anybody?

Enjoy it TT, equilibrium is a very transient state. Dave's question on fireworks and their availability is an interesting philosophical dilemma. The chap suffers from combat-induced PTSD. Seeking some relief from random percussive type noises he's wondering why he, and the rest of humanity, have to endure the drawn-out celebration of a "one day" event with flash bang devices that would probably warrant an ASBO at any other time of year. He has a point: November 5th should be celebrated on November 5th. To my mind this doesn't qualify him for snowflake status; quite the reverse. The true snowflakes in this instance are those who live their lives without regard for others and without any cognition of societal norms unless it affects them personally. Which probably illustrates that there is such a condition as being a macho snowflake.

Ok so they wear gloves for more grip I can understand that but back in the days of no gloves, Bonnetti, Banks, Stepney and further back than I can remember, goalkeepers used to catch the ball. They did this regardless whether they were diving or coming for crosses whereas the trend these days is to punch or parry, you rarely see a goalie catch the ball these days...

I was a goalkeeper in my younger days, and I had the pleasure of playing in goal for Sutton United for a couple of seasons, and it was in the days of lace up footballs, and I only wore gloves on the odd occasion in very wet weather, and these were made of wool. in 99% of games if having a busy day, my fingers would really sting with some hard shots, and I tell you what, if I had been able to wear gloves in all games, I feel that I would have been a far better keeper than I was, as I would have had more confidence, and I wasn't that bad anyway.

Look at Manchester City without Vincent Company and now you can see what I have meant all along about building teams on a solid defence - you lot know it makes sense.

Anyway MST decided enough was enough, doubtless he will return, difficult for him not to have an opinion....and air it:)) Hope so, he was always a good initiator of football related discussions.

Hmmm. That's very questionable Ari. Anyway, yes our defence is very iffy but actually, seems we played much better than the stats suggested at the weekend. Could have had 2 or 3 goals by the end. But our defence has needed investment for a while. It's a shame spurs dragged the sess deal out for so long, The plan was to invest in defence afterwards, which we did with Hector but weren't able to register him in time. Think we need to stop being the spurs feeder club. Never get a good deal, they turn the players heads and run the clock down to the wire.

I have supported FFC for 64 years through the thick and (sometimes very) thin years. I really enjoy this website and the informed and bizarre comments are all part of it. In your local when the pub bore starts you can move to the other end of the bar and talk to people who aren’t interested in the conceited opinions of some knowall. On this website you have to scroll down past any posts from so-called MST moderator. If he's gone - good riddance!

From a user interface perspective this site has its problems but we're all used to it. Without adopting Sam's login dexterity you are known by your logged-in username or shown as a "guest" but cannot have multiple usernames. MST, like all mods, is entitled to his opinions just like the rest of us and that's as it should be for as long as his personal opinions don't override his equanimity and adherance to fair play. In my view he comes as close to meeting this impossible yardstick as any mod I've seen. This site is essentially self-moderating and it's seldom moderator action is taken in terms of wielding the "delete" stick. Given that there are two moderators, both part time, it's inevitable that objectional posts get through the net, either because the mods haven't got around to reading it or because they deem the post borderline and decide against censoring it. We all take the p"ss out of the Old Man at regular intervals, especially Len, but I suspect most are comfortable with his light touch even if his personal opinions are sometimes at odds with his position as Moderator (acting, unpaid).

Michael Oliver I have long considered the best ref but he had a very poor game this afternoon maybe the Kop got to even him . Sorry the post isn’t about FFC but I needed to get it off my chest !
Replies
We had a good game against them and i think we protested about a foul or something. Salah ran down the field and scored. The saying goes, keep your focus on the game. Guardiola doth protest too much methinks and his team sort of replicates his feelings on the field. If that penalty was given, it would have been a different game and City would have been in the driving seat. The loss of Kompany was the loss of leadership on the pitch and it shows. Liverpool have Van Dyke which makes a big difference.

posted by Fulham supporter (Guest) - Monday 11th November 2019, 12:57 PM
 
Pep been doing a bit of a mourinho/ferguson in the buildup to the game which i think was unlike him. The city player handles it accidentally but puts the ball in the mixer, isnt alexander arnold sticking his hand up to appeal for the handball and then it strikes his arm. Personally if i was the ref then i would have given handball against the city player and stopped the game but then we wouldn't have seen that strike from fabinho, what a goal

Don’t want to celebrate an injury, but it was good to see Odoi replace LeMarchand. Odoi is FAR better in the air defensively and on our set pieces. Christie played well, too, solid performance. But....Parker keeps giving Onomah and Bobby Reid chances, and what have they done? Onomah looked indecisive and even scared with the ball. It’s time for KMac - who reads the game far better - and AK47 to be moved up SP’s pecking order

Glad you mention Christie played well today about time fans got off his back he’s big strong and quick crossing not always great ( was good today) but a lot of our crossing had been bad moaning before he’s kick a ball don’t help

Watching the game i must praise Rodek. some great saves and his decisive positioning and distribution played a major part in our victory.
posted by KUNYE (Guest) - Saturday 09th November 2019, 11:24 PM
 
part of a our problem is not having a decent right back. in our first 10-12 games almost all our goals came from the right (opposition attacking young Sess). Parker changed a few things like putting 3 at the back, which back-fired horribly and followed by Odoi. Opposition start attacking from our left and the Bryan gets injured and as we know Les Merchand just doesn't have the pace or awareness for Premier league or even championship. If Christie can come back and be our solid right back and Bryan comes back, we might have to get us through until January. I think all our expectation that we will score and win by 3-4 goals have gone - so anything to nick a win and keep us without touching distance of the top 2, I'd take it!
posted by John (Guest) - Sunday 10th November 2019, 10:47 AM
 
Nice posts .Having just watched the match ( sorry I couldn't be there !) let's leave Christie at right back and dare I say leave Odoi at left back . Reid get's himself in great positions thought he was unlucky not to score a couple but can't work out what SP sees in Onomah I'm not even sure what position he is supposed to play ! anyway well done FFC a real workman like performance .

What a wonderful example of how hard graft and players prepared to give their all for the club and each other. They continue to improve and they are mainly the players that got them promotion. If only Fulham had the same endeavour.
Replies
A couple of nice posts . Kamara will get a chance next time FFC play because Mitro is suspended . Christie should start at right back because he is a natural full back and also adds height to the back line . Odoi is versatile and should start on the bench but he is too slow for running up and down the wing from full back positions I have always thought he would be better in front of the back four but what do I know ! Week done today Coyw’s

yes, they have a great teamwork mentality. However, I am sure many said the same thing about Huddersfield town the season they got promoted - look what happened 24months later...at the end of the day, you will need quality to sustain in the premier league! We went for quality (on paper anyway) but forgot about the team work! Villa seem to be striking a decent balance which long term is more sustainable.

Agree with comment about Odoi, I think he could do a good job as a screen for the defence. I don't really trust him as a centre back (His slip against QPR in the 2-2 draw 2 seasons ago sticks in the memory).

We would dearly like to see a winning run in succession continue. I am sorry to say this, but our inconsistencies this season has cost us points and a lot of them.3 games coming up and if we are going to do anything with Scott Parker in charge, we need to win at least 2 of them in this November run. For starters, our next 2 up are home games and arguably winnable against QPR and Derby. I watched derby up on sky today and we really should have enough guns to beat them and take some points or a point of Qpr and Swansea away, we can show some more determination away to Swansea and if not a win, we should be able to grind it out for a draw. Not denying, it is a tough league to get out of but we really need to string some winning results together or go unbeaten. I am a bit peed off because every time we get 1 win, we are mugs for criticising Parker. That is the nature of the beast guy's, so let's prove we are a good team and take the bull by the horns in this league. By the way, 'well done' Scotty and well done team, even Christie and AK-47,his pace is effective and he was unlucky not to score. I have said it, one win doesn't make a swallow, if that is the saying. Do let's show some consistency now. It is well overdue going into Xmas...

The trouble is Owen you think we’re better than we really are,you have to realise that most if not all of our players are decent enough for the championship but quite a long way off premier league standard. We are where we should weather you have Scott Parker,Slavisa or Klop this Squad is well short of top flight ability. So be realistic enjoy being a top half championship team.

Good post chief, afraid there are a lot of " Owens" on this site, as you say we are a decent Championship side which will continue to pick up enough points to finish in the top six or so.Not a great fan of the International break but looking forward to seeing some of our young players perform.
posted by Dave (Guest) - Sunday 10th November 2019, 9:27 AM
 
Agree with most points chief, we are a decent side and we should comfortably make the playoffs with the squad we have. With our talisman Mitro-man at the helm no worries. Mitrovic is our prem player who all other teams fear in this division you all have to agree, and the Birmingham boss aired his concerns about Mitro interviewed before the game. Leeds slipped up big-time last season when looking dead serts to go up and you are right, there is no guarantees. My concerns like a lot of Fulham fans is our indifferent form and slips which could cost us dearly right at the end of the season. Christie looks good after 'one' game at right back. We have played out some of these scenarios before with Christie, Joe Bryan, Ream,etc etc. We all know that we need to strengthen our squad in January and so will most teams in the Championship. We will most likely continue with Scott Parker as our manager, but will he take us over the line? It might be okay with you and some fans if we don't make it back to the prem, but at what cost? Seriously, will Mitrovic stay on at Fulham in the Championships? A more experienced manager might seal the deal, there are no guarantees. Keep Parker at fulham and strenghten our squad in January is a big gamble. Can Parker handle it? Fair enough and each to his own. If plans screw up, there will be a lot of 'Owens' who will be searching for answers. If we can stop the inconsistencies and go on a big run of winning games, life will be rose's and daffidils at the Cottage and peaches and cream will be yummy mummy. Good luck Christie and all the rest. Good win at Brum, keep it up!!!!!!!
