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.
Replies
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.

Owen- he’s like a load of people you meet in a trading environment- get the market right once, and dine out on it for the next 20’ years.

Does it really matter where the tinker man ends up? He's history to FFC now and he only ended the debacle, he didn't start it. I have no idea nor care what Sampdoria are paying Ranieri but I'm sure they think he's worth it, the same as our Board.

You like the bible Owen so you will probably identify with the phrase take the plank of wood out of your own eye before taking the splinter from someone else's ;0))).

Harvey poor lad has just been banned for two weeks for posting something nasty abour Harry Kane. Naughty boy. Mail today states Liverpool prodigy, another typographical error! Fulham prodigy who sodded off as soon as he could to Anfield. By the way are we all at Fulham still waiting for the cheque in payment for his services? It did not happen on Friday night against the Czech's because Gareth underrated them, when we should all admit that they have had a very good international side for some years. There you are lads a post where I did not even bemoan our dreadful defence!

England lost because we are a team of runners and kickers. We've forgotten what 'beat a man using skill' means. That's because nobody in the team can do it! BORING!! Rather watch 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.

How many times “ 2 World wars ?” Its all history and bollocks. You werent around and neither was I - its 100 and 70 years ago. “ Bring back the British Empire ‘ - defeat in WW2 would have left 300 million in it in India alone let alone Australia , Canada , half of Africa and the Caribbean. 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. Unbelievable

The EU sell more to us than we sell to them, if they don’t want that trade it is up to them. I for one do want to be one of their states being told what to do, I would prefer a smaller place, these giant counties are not good places to live. Stay a smaller country and do what we want to do. Stay in the Commonwealth with our real friends.

The EU is trying to take part of our country from us, how could anyone prefer to stay tied to those sort of countries?
posted by BAZ (Guest) - Monday 14th October 2019, 5:29 AM
 
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.....

Not really a rugby fan but I can’t believe if a world game in the World Cup is cancelled due to weather, the result is assumed nil nil! In this case Scotland could be knocked out because of Weather! How fair is that?? I always think football should adopt some of the rugby etiquette! Maybe not!

I watched the first half, and ten minutes of the second, in the hope the game could not be any worse than the first half. Thats when I switched off with the score 1-1. I still don't know the final score, but from this post I see we lost, so I did the right thing. Will I watch on Monday. Surely it can't be as bad as this one,can it?

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!

I thought we has a two way extradition with them. We have sent two people to them over computer fraud. They even went to court to stop it but lost. 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.

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).

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.

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.

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??

Whatever Pariament say about us not leaving on the 1st August, won't matter if the EU don't give us any more extension. Nothing is settled any more than it was a couple of years ago. Whatever happens, there is nothing we can do, so forget about it.

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!
posted by Chris of Jokes - Tuesday 08th October 2019, 12:25 PM
 
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.

posted by Markrightback (Guest) - Monday 07th October 2019, 3:39 PM
 
If you think what they are doing is peaceful then it gives a new definition of "peaceful" to my mind! Buiding wooden structures and blocking bridges and roads causing havoc to all and sundry is not demonstrating, it is breaking the law and putting people's lives at risk. Especially as they have now admitted that they will disrupt the emergency services and A&E departments of hospitals!

Earlier in the year a guy missed getting to his father whilst he was gravely ill and his father died before the guy could get to his side because of this DROSS blocking the roads.

Also if you think 100% of these people are there because they care about the future of the planet then I am afaid you are a little naive (no offence intended). Many of them just like to cause problems bbecause they have dropped out of society and have nothing better to do.

We do not live in some kind of dystopian era where it's ok for "RABBLE" like these to take over the lives of normal hard working people trying to go about their daily lives!

If any of my team were involved in any of this nonsense then I would summarily dismiss them for gross misconduct and bringing our company into disrepute. If more companies took action against these to55ers then they might think twice about what the meaning of a "peaceful demonstration" looks like!

I don't like rugby, I never have, and I never will, and don't follow it in any way, but I can't avoid seeing the scores, while watching some news programmes, and most of the games seem so one sided, it must be boring, for even poor souls that actually follow the sport.

Once you have a better understanding of the rules, it becomes more interesting - believe me.

Not my favourite sport by a long chalk but still interesting to see how England do and the only reason they won by a country mile on Saturday was because Argentina were down to 14 men from very early on. Similar to Reading v FFC if you like.

Think of it as 7 points to one goal ;0).

Joe, you couldn't be more wrong about being no rules in rugby, and they never argue with the refs as virtually every soccer player does if somebody dares ruffle his hair. I support England, and my England flag will stay up for hopefully a few more weeks.

Think you will find the average rugby union player has a better I q than his football counterpart not going to argue one against the other but rather watch England playing than watch a prem football match and football can certainly learn a few things ( time wasting respect to ref )you will never see a rugby player shouting and screaming at a ref clock stops for hold ups. Definatley needed in football As fo4 World Cup obviously weaker teams at the start but still been a couple of upsets next week will be more competitive

Regarding rules far more in rugby certainly more intricate by the way not all rugby players overweight. Only the forwards who do most of the donkey work for the more athletical ones who do the yards ( putting it simple for the rugby cynics !!!

John you are wrong there are no rules in Rugby like cricket they have only laws. But that explains the very different reactions from footballers: You can bend the rules but you cannot break laws. BTW I played for 17 years and can tell you it's the best game to take part in. At it's best it is the best sport to watch but it's also the easiest sport for referees to ruin which they do too frequently.

I'd agree wholeheartedly Hints. Great game to play and yes, you'll get a few knocks, but teams have a way of dealing with any thuggery, which is why it seldom rears its ugly head. A few tinnies afterwards give the game a social element totally lacking in soccer at any level.

If we keep throwing away points like we did yesterday, and against WBA and Sheffield Wednesday, we will never catch up. It looks like we have a run of easy fixtures coming up, and Swansea and Leeds must have thought the same yesterday but Swansea lost against Stoke, and Leeds against Millwall,so some of the so called easy fixtures may not turn out that way. looking at the fixtures lists, it appears that the clubs above us, also have a run of easy games coming up, so if they do win them and we continue to throw away points against teams we would should be beating easily like Charlton yesterday, then we are never going to catch up.

Looking at the results up to now nobody looks any better than anyone else. Let’s just enjoy being in a very competitive,exciting league and give the manager and team our encouragement and backing!

Seriously just enjoy the season. We are competitive for promotion that’s only been the case in a handful of seasons in the last 30 years.

We should be doing a Wolves this season and running away with below par Division, but either bad luck or bad management is stopping us, and I don't think at this stage it's bad management. Despite the fact that I think that Betts is a reasonable keeper, as two super saves yesterday proves, he is my opinion, just short of top class, and needs to be replaced in January, and as everyone of us can see, a new right back is a must, but Sess is our future, and he has been thrust in at an important season for the club, and is suffering for it at the moment, which is not all his fault.

Last week Huddersfield and stoke had 2pts and propped the league up, similar to when we were last relegated it’s hard to hit the ground running after a horror season and adapt to a different league. I can’t understand why people who are only happy if we are 9 pts clear of 2nd support Fulham that’s not us maybe under tigana but that was 2nd attempt at promotion from the league after bracewell season. I don’t understand where this entitlement comes from it’s so not ffc. Get behind the team, enjoy a competitive season. Lastly please Stop demanding unrealistic performances from Steven Sess he is green and makes the odd green mistake that can be ironed out of his game but overall his standard and maturity is way ahead of the curve for an 18 year old and he will just get better.

Leeds were probably looking at Millwall away as a “winnable fixture” Doom merchants need to calm down the trick is to be in touch with the promotion places and that is where we are right now. Dropped points against a very useful Charlton side unlucky not to win so not the disaster that some would have us believe.

Apart from a corner at Sheffield Wednesday and the wonder goal scored by Reading all our goals we conceded since the Forest game (and probably before) came from our right, including a couple of mistakes by Sessengnon! This is no coincidence! Points lost due to right back against Cardiff, Forest, West Brom, Wednesday and Charlton!!! Teams know we are weak on that side and attacking us and often able to penetrate us easily! I hope Parker can also see this and sort this position out ASAP in the international break. We have to buy someone in January!

Nothing against Sess. He’s young and in recent games proof he isn’t ready. The statistic is also loud and clear he’s our weakest link at the moment. My point is the club need to strengthen this area immediately with whatever we have available (namely Odoi I guess) and buy a proper right back in January or risk missing out on top two or even play-offs! Sess has potential - give him another season on the bench.

Southgate's promise to pick players who are playing in the Premiership and in good form has a decidedly hollow ring about it. So Kane and Wicks are in good form? Wicks cant even get in the team at Tottenham, and if it wasn't for his reputation, nor would Kane.
Anyone think Kane is worth his place after he turned out against Bayern and Brighton? Its about time Southgate got his nose out of the Tottenham dressing room and started looking around the country more often. If you look at the teams doing well in the Prem.,they all have forwards who are quick and actually RUN!!

Everyone is complaining about the poor first half display yesterday. Which is true but look at the changes? A good manager is able to change things if it isn’t working. We blamed Parker so many times before, he wasn’t aware or quick enough to realise changes in the oppositions, most recently against Watford last season and against West Brom a few weeks ago. Parker have learned and I was super happy to see him change the formation to 3-5-1-1 at half time! It worked. I also saw a lot of players (Reid, cav, Knockaert and Cairney) moving around to confuse Charlton and to defuse their pressing!! I want to congratulate Parker for that!!
Replies
Nonsense! Arter was injured and Sessignon was playing so poorly he had to take him off and probably should have done so earlier. There was only one opyion which was to move to a three man back four. It's not rocket science. I agree though about Caveliero and knochaert they should always play on the right and left wings respectively.
posted by Doris (Guest) - Sunday 06th October 2019, 1:45 PM
 
Doris - the easy option would have brought on Odoi for Sess and most fans in the stadium was probably expecting that! Give Parker some credit for the brave move to 5 in the middle.

We have got to accept that we won't blow away teams every week and romp home 4-1 like in the reading game. Fulham play expansive and risky football, and there are teams that will look more closely at our tactics and adjust so accordingly. Likewise, we also need to think further ahead and change a little bit here and there. My doubts about Scott Parker to take us into the play-offs and beyond will surface and question if he can push us further?. Steve Sess was the wrong choice today at right-back, and i seriously believe that the return of Dennis Odoi is needed. Odoi is a yard quicker off the block for starters and he is much more experienced, which is what we needed. We are pushing up and playing much quicker which was needed and there are lots more opportunities to score goals which is fantastic. But there is a but' we don't put away enough of those chances in the equation, we waste opportunities big time. Another weakness we might need to address, is our goalkeeping? Bettonelli still does not look rock-solid, i am sorry to say this, and i don't trust him. Bettonelli lingers too long on the ball in his area for a start and he still looks flakey and his positioning isn't great. One last thing, if Fulham still persist in playing out from the back every week, we need a plan 'B' now! The better teams won't allow us that laksy daisy luxury. Teams have sussed us, and a slow thinking goalkeeper does not help. Bettonelli needs to study some videos. I suggested the flary french Loris at Tottenham, but he messed up recently. Why not take a leaf from the Van Der Sar book of goalkeeping? Apart from our goalkeeping woes, how do we inject more pace and space when we ping the ball upfield? Over to you Scotty!!!!!!!!!
Replies
Owen why don't you stop comlaining. We have only lost two games out of eleven. From what I see his tactics are certainly better than the last two managers. We have the best goal difference in the league, If you want to win every game, go and support Liverpool or Manchester City. This is the Championship where there s not much difference between the teams, and harder to predict a result.for me its more exciting than the Premier league, where clubs like us struggle to compete.
posted by Alicante Bert (Guest) - Saturday 05th October 2019, 9:47 PM
 
Bert' i want us to get out of this dogfight of a league. You are correct in saying the Championships is exciting and anyone can beat anyone. The Premier league is should be our ambition and we could and should strive and improve to get back there. I disagree that we won't compete and do well back in prem. If the likes of Brighton, Sheff Utd,and Norwich can graft and pick up results in the prem, why can't Fulham? We did good for 13 or so years and we can again. I still say that little details like our right back and goalkeeping situation needs to be addressed. It is a nice thought and sentiment to enjoy winning and losing in the Championships like a lark in the park. We might as well buy icecreams every week and enjoy our football in it, or show some ambition to get back to the prem. I want Fulham to improve like Burnley and Bournemouth who also got relegated but bounce back to the prem. Give me Liverpool and man city every week, life is a challenge. Liverpool are scraping results right now, they are not invinceable...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Saturday 05th October 2019, 10:47 PM
 
I totally agree, Owen. If we're going to gain promotion we need to be at the races from the off in every game, and pressure opponents to expect no soft rides at the Cottage. Our first half performance was dismal - our players need to understand they're getting paid good money to perform. A second half effort is just not good enough. As for Betts, he concerns me with his lack-a-daisical approach to clearing the ball, and he should have done better to stop their first easy goal - it was kicked straight at him. He should take lessons from Charlton's excellent goalie how to stop goals.

It was a well thought draw against a tough team and we played some food attacking football. People have been moaning about the sideways passing but we was going forward alot yesterday so everyone needs to cheer up. 3 points off top. Some great players we have. And betts is a good keeper yes he likes to play out from the back but he has been told to otherwise we would boot it every chance he gets. And he makes some great saves. He can't have it all. His good enough for the championship at least.

disagree with your analysis of their first goal ST.The man was unmarked in the middle of the penalty area,and you expect Bets to stop it?The problem was in fact our walking football tactics of the first half.Indeed i said to my friend "we are going to let one in shortly",and hey ho we did.Even the second was avoidable .Instead of passing it out from the area,it should have been belted up field as far as possible ,and regroup.Did we ?oh no we passed,straight to the opposition who crossed,and 2 .1.Constant cock ups will always bring fatality.

It’s not consistency that’s the problem; it’s the tactics. With a great forward line capable of ripping any side apart, we should be moving the ball around with greater pace and taking the game to our opponents, rather than sitting too far back and playing pretty pretty football. We waste too much time getting from one end of the park in to the opponents box.....we are not allowing our fast paced forwards to create enough chances. We are incapable of keeping a clean sheet, if we continue to play as we are

Tough league. Credit to man marking Charlton they did a job. Sess was poor today not sure why. Leeds and Swansea have now both lost too!

Sid, Cheif is right we are on 19 and 22 is the top so we are off by 3 points and with a goal diff of 10. I suggest you calm down and apologise.

Don’t think we done very well in the first half, charlton had a plan and it took us a while to work it out. Parker made the right decision to take Sess and Arter off. Think Arter hurt himself and Sess was struggling. Thought we looked good going at it quickly but not so good when we slow the game down. At least Parker made changes that were for the better. Still feel that if we are there or thereabouts come Xmas we will spend on players that have Premier league experience.

Perhaps if we played the first half as well as the second half we would be out of sight of the rest. And for the record that first 45 minutes was as dire as it gets.

We finished in 3rd place after the game, and both Swansea and Leeds lost. WBA are the only dangers to us finishing 1st or 2nd, but I am happy to be where we are at the moment, as I for one still say that come Christmas we will be in the top 6, and then we will push on and win the title.

Raymond why do you keep ‘coming’ on here we know you’re a Brentford fan! Is it the excitement of talking about Fulham that turns you on!! Today’s game shows the team has great spirit and oozes with quality and talent. We’re only 3 points off the top after just 11 games and as MW has said give me that any day. Stoke haven’t won this season until today beating Swansea at the Liberty knocking them off the top, just shows you can’t predict results in this league. Bowyer did his homework on us, Charlton were well organised and disciplined they came at us from the start, good to see The Addicks doing well they’ve been through tough times on and off the field, hope they continue to do well this season. Raymond how did Brentford do today?? You should be worried about relegation 4 points from the drop. As for our great club there’s no forgetting promotion this season you can only watch and drool again week in week out. C’mon Fulham.
posted by FFC Fan (Guest) - Saturday 05th October 2019, 5:43 PM
 
Rule of thumb, every draw or defeat - try to win the next three games, guarantees promotion. Charlton was always going to be chalk and cheese compared to midweek but I thought we might just nick a win. The games come thick and fast so points will unfortunately be dropped, It’s a jungle this league but at least we are up the food chain.

Sess was Brilliant at the start of the season and got a lot of praise! Whatever happened after the international break, he’s not the same player! Going to sound awful he’s beginning to remind me of Jazz Richard. The play and ball stops everytime it gets to him and at times you wonder if he can kick the ball properly! He’s not ready and we need a proper right back in January! Keep him on the bench and let him learn more!
Replies
I agree, in a stretch where we play three matches in 10 or 11 days ODOI should play in two, Sess in one - Parker has it backwards. Odoi is so much better in the air, more experience, better dribbling. Neither can cross it like Freddo, but yeah - Sess needs to add more to his game

Steve Sess is far too inexperienced down that side, and he has wasted too many balls in decent positions. 1-0 down, we need to bring on Odoi for starters, then roll our sleeves up and graft our way to some sort of position where we can get our way back in. Take more shots in decent positions would help, and Cav and Knockheart need to make more impact into this game. Over to you Scott Parker, do something tactical!!!!!
Replies
Agree with Owen. Sess off also Arter who wastes so many balls going forward. Biggest problem is Fulham style. Continually passing back to go forward gives opposition plenty of time to reorganise defence making chances of shots on goal very slim. Oh, and also very boring to watch. Can't see points from this game for us.

The feeling of going to today’s match is similar to the feeling to go to the Forest game having beaten Millwall 4-0! And all the hype after that. I hope the team don’t get complacent. Charlton is very hard working team - typical of any strong league one clubs - they will run and run to make sure you don’t get an inch of space! We need to work hard and I think we can win 3-1!

Harry Arter is far from mad or crazy as some might think. Our Harry is a clinical pass-master, a holding player, and a steady-heady. Infact, our Harry is a genius in my opinion, and will go down as a Fulham great and a firm favourite down here at the cottage. Without Harry, Our Tom would not have the free role to wonder and find those gaps to produce that feline cat-like stealth and shooting shots that we see only on a World-cup stage. The secret for getting the best out of Tom Cairney is to let him roam and to find those gaps that he does. Defensive duties is not Toms forte or is it is strong points. Harry and Scotty may be in-laws related, and they maybe supp together over a sunday roast every weekend, and i suggest that Tom should be included in this tight family unit. Because the more these two get to know each others game, will be the more beneficial to our improving team, and long may their partnership continue. Now let's go on another unbeaten run and take this Championship by the scruff of the neck. COME ON YE FULHAM!!!!!!!!!!

I missed a big chunk in the second half, but I thought Cairney didn't have a massive influence on today's game. He seems to have games like that - does nothing wrong but plays it safe. I only wish he could pass with his right foot because at the moment defenders can be sure which way he is going to pass and have learned to shepherd him in one direction.

As a long time fan from down under,my concern is that we are falling into the same trap as 2 seasons ago with so many (key) loan players. Assuming and hopefully we get promoted this season(whose complaining!!). What happens in our first EPL season when the parent clubs ask big bucks for their loan players ( a la Taggett) ? Do we go out and spend £100 mill again on the Seri's of this world? Look what happened last time. I am excited but worried at the same time.

At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 7-year-old football players aside and asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?" The little boy nodded in the affirmative. "Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?" The little boy nodded yes. "So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when a foul is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, or attack the referee. Do you understand all that?" Again the little boy nodded. He continued, "And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach 'a worthless idiot' is it?'' Again the little boy nodded. "Good," said the coach. "Now go over there and explain all that to your parents."

Nice thought that if we beat Charlton at home on Saturdays early kick off match... Fulham will be Championship league-toppers albeit for maybe only few hours! However sending the right message and with winnable games coming up... a decent run could be on the cards! Would be lovely to see one like the record breaking twenty-something game I n our promotion season couple years ago. After 10 games are now looking a tighter/ better functioning team as players start gelling. Just need to watch those last min conceeding of goals... those 4 points dropped recently would have placed us up top but hopefully have learnt/ are learning that lesson! So congrats to the guys and let’s hope we can push on and have started that decent run now... can see us up top on Sat for awhile and in 3/4 weeks time! ...COYW!
Replies
So far so good, believe it or not we had more points under Bracewell in the 99-00 season but we have scored 4 more goals than that campaign after 10 games. I think we were on 30 points from 30 under Tigana. Back to this season, we have scored the joint first amount of goals (same as preston, alex neil doing a good job there) but more from open play than any other team. Out of the top two divisions we have had the most average possession 69% (more than city 63%) but mainly because of the sideways passing to be fair. Onwards and upwards

They spend all day and night on electronic devices. They don't walk or ride bikes to school they arrive in top of the range 4x4s that choke surburban roads and worsen rush hour traffic. They are the biggest consumers of manufatured goods ever and update perfectly good luxury items needlessly to remain "trendy"..... and they pay for them electronically! They buy manufactured fast foods and always carry a plastic bottle of water.

All that increases the need for energy, manufacturing and transport. Ironic or what?

So heavy fines are they only way forward as far as I can see and those that don't pay fines are likely those without jobs so imprison them at night and make them do work in the community during a 10 hour working day. Not just periferal stuff like talking to people with special needs or working in soup kitchens but proper work like cleaning the streets, cutting overgrown grass areas, labouring for council house refits, etc. Let them see what it's like to do REAL work....

According to sporting index - Leeds will get 91points, Fulham 81 And West Brom and Swansea around 76! Leeds really 10points better than Fulham? can’t wait to play them to see how good they really are! If you fancy another bet - stoke 53 points. Really?? They are a mess and lucky to get 40 at the moment! Huddersfield is probably rightly priced at 49 points and 2nd from bottom! Very sad considered they almost topped the premier league table exactly this time two seasons ago!! That’s what happens when the owners decide to cash in....some of us probably shouldn’t criticise Khan senior!

I have myself been subject to the bi-annual government test for some years, but now being 75 years old will no longer be invited to take part and intend to arrange these at my own expense. I was once told that there was a likelihood I had bowel cancer, thankfully the blood in my stools were as the result of a bleeding ulcer. Don't overlook your health its up to you to look after yourselves no one else will. Angus MacDonald started playing in the Reading academy is currently playing in the team at Hull City, having played on loan at several clubs on loan including Torquay twice and AFC Wimbledon. Fans from Wigan Athletic, Birmingham City and other clubs and I myself wish Angus all the best with his treatment and a full recovery as soon as possible.

Yesterday after being witness to the excellent result at Reading resulting in a 4 - 1 win, despite conceeding an 89th minute goal which in different circumstances could have cost us 3pts I stayed in the town overnight but when I went to buy my morning newspaper, but being played in the town less than 39 miles due west of Craven Cottage found only daily newspaper have any write up on the match whatsoever was the Daily Star - which is at best only a third rate journal. It's the same some weekends when the Sunday newspapers often seem to forget the riverside club founded in 1878 and one of the oldest in the League altogether, a club only recently out of the Premiership.

Only at football would this sort of thing happen and I wondered if anyone esle had similar stories?

Very few I’d imagine even though you say hello to them and exchange pleasantries every other week. They probably told you their name - you forget very quickly! I think that’s because we are in London!

Hmmm, think it was Judy Garland 1933. The George Gershwin mix.

Although my comment below was made with my tongue planted firmly in my cheek, I am still left wondering if, after last night's trip to Reading, we are seeing the real deal and Fulham will now go on a long unbeaten run keeping them in the top two or three or whether results will be a little more hard to come by when we play the top half of the table.

I know Parker has turned a lot of heads on this board but I still find myself very firmly on the fence when it comes to his ability to get Fulham promoted at the first time of asking.

Although I can't attend, due to my inconsiderate middle Son getting married (LOL), I think Saturday's game against Charlton will not tell us much more. I expect us to win against an average team who, let's face it are still riding the crest of a wave after being promoted.

My interest lies in the games ahead against Leeds, West Brom and Swansea who all look the real deal at the moment and I think if we finish above any or all of those teams we will likely be promoted. Trouble is, I don't think we are as "ruthless" and "clinical" as those teams and in comparison, lack a "hard core" meaning that our defence is still in our "soft under belly".

Ream reads the game well and is good on the ball but he and Mawson lack communication and coordination and average strikers have already had them at sixes and sevens this term. Bryan is great going forward but has so many times lost concentration defending set pieces and Sess, although having had a reasonable start to his first team career, still has much to learn. Le Marchand is a bit of a donkey for me, Odoi can be a liability in any position he plays and I don't know enough about Hector to know if he will improve the first choice back four.

I guess summing up, we have arguably the best forward line and midfield in the divsion but we either need to strengthen our defence in January or change the play out from the back tactics that have us all having kittens at times.

What time is the wedding? Don't forget it's a 12.30 ko so you might be able to squeeze both in.

Sorted; he gets married at 1130 and the lunch is at 1400. It's been arranged to be on the box in the bar. Might miss the last 20 mins but should see most of the game on SKY ;0).

Isn't it tradition that the bride turns up late , 3 hours late isn't asking much , lol

Got to agree with you MST. Ill take the points from last night. Reading lost a man about twenty mins in. They have P10 D2 W2 L6. And are forth from bottom. Let see how we get on against Charlton.

I would've bribed my first wife not to turn up at all given a bit of hindsight!

Yes, although born and bred in Portsmouth and brought up here in the west country, he's FFC and has been since Joe Fagan was in charge (he's 32 now). Used to have a season ticket until he was signed by Cheltenham Town. Then broke six vertibrae in his back in a car accident so couldn't play anymore, then met a woman - say no more! He still comes to the odd game when my youngest (30 yrs old) doesn't use his season ticket of when the chap next to me doesn't use his.

Trust me, if there's anyway of delaying lunch I will. Afetr all, there's an evening do too LOL....

3 points, a few pints in Putney and then off to the evening do for us all then. After all, being a Fulham fan is just like being part of an extended family anyway. Post the address details on here when you have time MST.

Ha ha I'm not sure they'll let you in the Forest of Dean let alone my Son's do. They still call us "incomers" after living here nearly 23 years! Ask Devon Bob what it's like LOL!

If you don't already know once you enter the Forest of Dean few, very few, rarely get out - it's locally known as the Bermuda Triangle of the West of England. As a Somersetian I know these things not to be rumours.
