Just read that Elliott has just signed his 1st professional forms with liverpool,Who presumably are not exactly skint,+ the fact they are looking at 2 players valued at 25m each.Why the hell after a year are they stalling on 12m on one that Klop states could become one of the best players in British football.It appears that all teams below the premiership under present regulations,will suffer the same fate when dealing with the big boys
Replies
I have posted in regard to this in the past and agree with Kunye post however the club seemingly does not wish to share its viewpoint with its supporters as to how it views the continued delay in progress on this issue.

I am all for Freedom of Speech but question the continual presence of the silly little b who continues with his inane comments on our. Am I alone in thinking that our Moderators should just put a block on his postings which have nothing to do with our supporters.

We are the 4th or 5th best side in the Championship this year. That doesn’t mean we can’t play two great matches and go up. But Brentford, Leeds and West Brom have been better. Of all the teams, I’m hoping Brentford does go up automatically so we don’t face them at Wembley. They’re bigger, stronger and faster across the board, plus better managed. For us to go up, Parker has to get more from TC. He is the best passer in the division and can score when he gets the ball in the right areas. But not thriving in this system. This is Parker’s problem - he makes the players fit him, Slav saw the talent On hand and devised a system to fit it.

Sabri Lamouchi seems to have Forest well-drilled and especially very organized in defense. Scott Parker will need to organize and discipline our boys tomorrow night. We cannot turn up and play the same predictable way that we play, we must be smarter than we have ever been this season. This guy Sabri, would be a dream coach for Fulham, especially in the defense department. We struggle season after season, and we just cannot gel our suspect defense together no matter how we try. Mitrovic will sit out his ban for one more game. This is the game that we really needed Mitrovic to keep our stuttery 2 game win going, but not to be. If only we could have the services of Kamara tomorrow afternoon, he must be down with the virus? Ream and company will surely be kept busy by the ever so experienced Lewis Grabbon who i think is the perfect center forward to get any Championship team' er' up to the premiership. It is debatable if Grabbon would be prem class? I suggested grabbing 'er' Grabbon a few seasons back now but as usual, we dont think half these players are good enough for the Fulham. I am not sure if we are even capable of stopping Grabs' and the slick Joe Lolley? They say' cometh the hour, cometh the man! I would like to see some sort of tactical brilliance from Parker tomorrow, or win anyhow will do us before Mitro comes back. Scott Parker' we have accused him and slung him onto the slag-heap. Scott Parker' this is your time to show us some tactical prowess and genius to overcome a Forest team lead by Sabri Lamouchi, who does know what he is doing!!! COME ON YE FULHAM!!!!!!!!!

A crucial match where each team will be analysing the strength and weaknesses of each other,due to the very likely prospect they could meet in the playoffs.So lets hope we perform well,a 100% from all and nothing less.

I’m wondering if the reason we play the style we do is coming from above parker. After all when we got promoted with an attacking football side and tried to play it that way in the premiership we were routinely beaten with every pundit saying you can’t come up and play so recklessly and high energy. Then the khans sacked SJ and got Claudio who played a much more tight slow style more akin to what his replacement parker plays. My theory is the khans told parker they wanted promotion with a team that will grind out results and be hard to beat so that when we get back to the premiership we are relegation battle ready. I’m not saying this is what I want or that they have achieved it but it would explain why we been playing this slow style ever since sj left.

If the Khans realy believe that playing as we do will somehow help us survive should we go up they are living in cloud cuckoo land.

What is going on with our defence, for three years or so we have been plagued with a rough defence, dont get me wrong as adoi, ream, both lovely blokes but come on mistakes again and again. It just let's the rest of the team down, how can we build on old foundations it just collapses and we need and deserve more let the others have a chance, just because we all chant REAM REAM REAM, doesn't mean he is good for the team give him a rest and let the others perform yes we love him but time is time to use wisely.
Replies
Odoi may not be the best defender in the world, he has been solid for Fulham and probably the most reliable defender we have at the moment. Ream, i'd agree - he was never quick enough for the Premier league. Sadly, he might be lagging behind even in the championship. Our defence will always be a challenge if other teams sit back and our midfield push more and more forward, leaving a big gap. Other teams have worked this out, shame we haven't still found a solution. not sure its always the defenders fault!
posted by John (Guest) - Monday 06th July 2020, 12:25 PM
 
Ream was our best player in the promotion season excluding Mitro. He's a solid defender, good in the air, tackles well,maybe not top premiership quality However, he is clearly not comfortable with the ball at his feet. Our rigid policy of playing the ball out from the back doesn't suit him at all and seems to make him nervous. This in turn undermines his confidence while doing what he's good at (defending) and I feel this manifests itself in some of his decision making, mainly positioning. We have persevered far too long with a tactic to which our main central defender is not suited. Something has to change and I for one would prefer to abandon the inflexible devotion to slow patient (and boring) build up play and maybe get the best out of Ream.

We have invested heavily, but mostly in injured players. Mawson, Hector, Kongolo, Bryan are all excellent signings on paper (barring injuries). I'd question the coaching and recruitment process. One thing that really bugs me is that we never replaced fredricks. Love Odoi as versatile cover and enthuisiasm, but he is not natural at right back.
posted by O David (Guest) - Monday 06th July 2020, 1:08 PM
 
I would like to see Bryan given more cover in defence. He is dangerous when going forward, and making passes into the box, but isn;t the best at defending.

...For posting non-football related subjects. I've lost enthusiasm for football at the moment and so have some others judging by some of the posts below.

The fake crowd on BBC is too loud and whoever controls it is doing a really bad job of pressing the right buttons at the right time. watching with no fake crowd noise is even worse and like watching your mates kick about on a Sunday morning.

SKY SPORTS is slightly better but most of the games are turgid. Got me to thinking that perhaps it's not football alone that some of us enjoy but the whole experience!

We lost enthusiasm not because of the fake crowd. Of cos that's important. Of cos to keep the enthusiasm, we'd want to go to the games (many of us been doing for decades). We lost enthusiasm because Fulham lost the plot with Leeds and Brentford. If we had won those two games, I think you'd be slightly more interested...or even excited! So let's not blame the artificial noise!

I live abroad and only get to the cottage once or twice a season. I thought having Ffc was the answer.and paid for the priviledge. However I have been unable to get live matches at all this season and had to rely on Jims coverage. Since football restarted my account has been blocked , so now I can't get to see or hear any matches without paying again, I look forward to the matches on sky , and saw the first two games in my local bar, So apart from the Cardiff game, I won't be seeing any more Fulham games. Will I renew my membership next season. Not a chance. .

Chinese authorities have issued a warning after a suspected case of bubonic plague was identified in Inner Mongolia.

The case was reported at a hospital in the city of Bayannur, to the west of the Chinese autonomous region, on Saturday. It is not known how the patient became infected, local officials said.

It triggered a level three alert on Sunday - the second lowest of China's four-level system - ordering people to report any dead or sick marmots or any unexplained fever symptoms in humans.

The alert also bans the hunting or eating of animals, primarily rodents, that could spread the disease.

Known as the Black Death after overwhelming outbreaks in Britain in the Middle Ages, bubonic plague is not uncommon in China.

Cases have become increasingly rare however, with only 26 reported between 2009 and 2018, resulting in 11 deaths.

Symptoms of the bacterial infection, mostly spread by rodents, include a fever, swollen lymph nodes and feeling weak.

If it was just that article, do you think I would bother posting.

I have no black friends. This is not a choice, I just don't know any black people personally. That does not make me racist - no black person has me as a fiend and that does not make them MSTist.

I still say black board, because it describes a piece of equipment that is black and is a board, I still say master bedroom, I still by whitening toothpaste, I do not want to go down on one knee for anyone but none of those things makes me racist.

The world has gone mad some time ago but even more mad in 2020 when people can no longer say words and phrases that have been in our vocabulary for centuries. Too many people out there just waiting to be offended and mostly due to the letigious society in which we now live.

I abhore racism with intent but please - master bedroom, whitening toothpaste, baa baa black sheep; it's political correctness gone mad. People wanted to leave the EU because we had to have straight cucumbers and potatoes without eyes and those are the same people that want phrases and words band from our language that are meaningless to 99% of normal people (including those that are supposed to offended and don't give a fig).

And Bob ...the reason I have someone looking after my car is because it breaks down often ...and the man who drives it is my car mechanic who specialises in Mark 1 Golfs ... The thing is I come from a white working class background ,I lived on a rough estate in walworth ,in the 60’ and 70s ,I’ve also meet people who think I’m a bit thick just because of the way I speak ...but I also know that the black kids on my estate have had to put up with so more than I ever will .,and there children are still having to put up with it .....and maybe now ,in 2020 it isn’t a bad time to have think about these things ....That’s all ...

I know you weren't referring to me as racist so apologies if that's the way you perceived my post.

You have kind of proved my point though; you assume that because I use the phrase master bedroom, I must be posh. I call my sitting room a lounge and not a front room and I eat lunch in the middle of the day and dinner at night I would guess you would say that makes me posh too?

The truth is (as many older posters will know), I was brought up in Paddington by a protestant mother and a Jewish father with no money and we lived in a two room flat (bedroon and kitchen) in Marylands Road. I left school at 15 and have worked hard all my life and am now in my 60's enjoying a reasonable salary and living in a detached house in the Forest of Dean.

You might also say that makes me posh but I would guess a two room flat in Peckham would cost twice what my three bed detached (with master bedroom with en suite, 2nd bedroom, 3rd bedroom and study with lounge and dining room would be valued at and I sell textiles and PPE for a living.

It's about perception and I can assure you that I'm not posh however, back to the point that if you say master bedroom in the context of slavery and mean it in that context then, of course, it is wrong buut if you just mean the largest bedroom then I see absolutely no issue with that whatsoever....

MST, i think, having read your post, the fact that you have no black friends, probably leaves you in a position where it is not your place to decide what is considered racist and what is not. In fact, you have previously posted about aligning your views on racism with a black man you once met, who said it was more about ‘racism with intent’. This phrase suggests that racism without intent also exists. It also seems to reinforce a narrative in your mind that you are not complicit, because you are passive. A story you tell yourself to sleep well at night. The problem is, we are all complicit - but it is not our fault. Rather than seeing this as an attack on you, it’s simply highlighting an issue that we face daily. The systems and norms in place are outdated, before your time and mine, so you have been born into it. Just like me. Therefore, there is nothing wrong with people suggesting terms like ‘master bedroom’ are racist, because their origins are racist, but became tolerated and then normalised over centuries. POC now have a voice and a platform, and unlike the single person you base your morality on, there are millions of people protesting worldwide that being passive is simply not enough any more. These are the people you should be listening to and trying to make feel welcome in this world we share. Also, it is not about whitening toothpaste, It was about selling skin whitening treatments, stop spreading false information after you were corrected the first time. That is wilful ignorance and therefore you are complicit in spreading hatful narrative about the protests and everything they are achieving. Markrightback, it is very refreshing to hear your views on this board. You represent the age group of the majority of posters, but do not represent their outdated views which i find to be very damaging to society. I think it is a moderators duty to delete posts like this, not write them.

Well said mark right back. Whilst I understand the frustration with some silly changes to words it is like the final straw over a long period of racist and skin colour abuse. You cannot put yesterday’s rules on today’s society, it is time to change hence all the protest. When someone says I am not racist but.....you know they are about to say something racist. Also I must admit to wondering why a moderator is so vocal on this board. Obviously this board is different to others where the moderators are more impartial.

Well said oz nick, also how you can be so triggered by the name of a bedroom but seemingly not care about all the serious racist stories In the news right now like the Olympic athletes been involved in scary stop and search. You’d think if you were aware you have no interaction with the victims of racism and an awareness of total ignorance, you wouldn’t be so vocal on the problem. Time for listening and learning from the victims not the evening standard or MST in his bubble

Not my words but I entirely agree: I have been wondering about why whites are racists, and no other race is? There are British Africans, British Chinese, British Asian, British Turks, etc, etc, etc. And then there are just British. You know what I mean, plain ole English people that were born here. You can include the Welsh, the Scottish and the people who live off our shores of Great Britain. You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you. So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live? You have the Muslim Council of Great Britain. You have Black History Month. You have swimming pools for Asian women. You have Islamic banks for Muslims only. You have year of the dragon day for Chinese people. If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists. If we had White History Month, we'd be racists. If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives, we'd be racists. A white woman could not be in the Miss Black Britain or Miss Asia, but any colour can be in the Miss UK. If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships, you know we'd be racists. There are over 200 openly proclaimed Muslim only schools in England. Yet if there were 'White schools only', that would be racist! In the Bradford riots and Toxteth riots, you believed that you were standing-up for your race and rights. If we stood-up for our race and rights, you would call us racists. You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists. We fly our flag, we are racists. If we celebrate St George's day we are racists. You can fly your flag and it’s called diversity. You celebrate your cultures and it’s called multiculturalism. You rob us, carjack us, and rape our daughters. But, when a white police officer arrests a black gang member or beats up an Asian drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist. I am proud.... but you call me a racist. Why is it that only whites can be racists?? There is nothing improper about this e-mail. Let's see which of you are proud enough to send it on. I sadly don't think many will. That's why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country. We won't stand up for ourselves! BEING PROUD TO BE WHITE! It's not a crime, YET... but its getting very close!

Without fans I have lost my enthusiasm for football, it's just not the same. I am guessing that b3 is somewhat over enthusiastic as to be fair Brentford are decent and do have a chance of promotion. Also, it's not really that different for them as they have spent many years adapting to playing in front of empty stands.

Everytime Brentford are in the playoff they screw up and it’s always an ex Fulham player who scores except when Marcelo trotta missed a playoff winning penalty and the other team went up the other end and scored the winner. I hope Brentford make the playoffs just so I can laugh at the inevitable, hilarious way they get knocked out. I hope we get them in the first round cos what could be more in trend with their playoff history than the last ever game at their sad stadium been when Fulham ended their promotion hopes.

Parker you need to work on these things urgently 1) we work the ball too slowly 2) our play is too predictable 3) our shape is unbalanced 4) our defenders do no not win enough individual duels especially applies to Hector but also Ream 5) we do not play incisive through balls and Cairney is our only player who even attempts this 6) we have looked sluggish since the restart and the squads fitness needs to be investigated although things on this issue were slightly better yesterday 7) set plays need to improve. Lots to work on Parker but we keep saying this and that’s why it is frustrating. The talent is in the squad to do this but your job is to make this happen now just do your job properly.

If i sound ruthless, tough tooties and boo-hoo to any Scott Parker sympathizers out there! I repeat' our target this season is promotion and apparently, we are still on for it. Why are we one of the few, who don't think promotion is on the table, or we shouldn't be promoted this season? Brentford are apparently punching above their weight. Fulham have had the pleasure of a good 13 years in the prem, and we should be ambitious to get there again. Surprisingly, we are still in the mix, so let us keep the momentum going into Tuesday at Forest. Forest will be the acid test without Mitrovic for the last time. Can Scott Parker engineer a win without Mitro? Tactically we are all over the place, yet we are in the mix. I don't mind if Parkers favorite son plays every game from now until the end of season if it means he improves a little bit, and most importantly, it brings a smile to Parker's face. I have heard all the nonsense that Scott Parker can only do so much with limited resorces, poppy-cock i say! We have one of the best squads in this division and most teams would feel blessed to have half of ours. It is our own faults that we are blowing it, but we can put things right starting against Forest. If we can somehow win, we will have a rejuvenated Mitrovic back for the remaining games to come. The likes of Mitrovic would love promotion and he must keep him and whoever has an ambitious bone in their body. Love him or loathe him, Scott Parker should have our support for the small recompense, and the much more he will deliver to the small team along the Thames. COME ON FULHAM' OUR PREM RETURN AWAITS!!!!!!!!

But did we leave it late at home again or what? Not setting the world on fire, because we are playing to rows of empty seat and a few seagulls that have flown off course. Mind you fielding the same team was probably forced on Mr Parker, as we have not exactly got a big squad. For all they are worth, I would have let the on-loan players go back to where they came from even brother-in-law Harry Arter. See how Bournemouth have missed him. WHAT ABOUT GETTING Lee Johnson in now as Manager, he had no players of quality at Bristol City, so it will not make much difference at Craven Cottage would it? But at least he has some experience as a Manager.

Replies
This is a very different and difficult problem for all managers. They need to pick the best eleven players who are motivated in a empty stadium. I have seen a lot of games already since the restart and a lot of player in all teams look lost in the silence. You can joke that the Fulham players should be used to quiet but that is unfair, Fulham are very well supported vocally home and away.

All the moaners have to decide, do they want pretty tap football, something Jokanovic was regular criticised for, or for us to eke out a result. Many’s the time I’ve seen posters saying,” we’ve got to learn to win ugly”, well that’s what they did today. Too many of the players are below par, as individuals and as a team. I thought they actually showed a great deal of character. Birmingham came to shut up shop and give absolutely nothing away. We all know if a team is set up that way even the very best have great difficulty breaking them down. It makes for dire football but that isn’t the attacking team’s fault. Our lads showed true grit and perseverance, not to mention patience and stuck to the task in hand. Parker made exactly the right substations and the whole team responded accordingly. The longer the game went on the better we looked and we got our just, well earned desserts. Every game is now a Cup game, it’s win anyway you can, the only consideration for us and the others in the top 6 is win. Today’s game gave me a real boost in my confidence in the team as I I think they are beginning to show the backbone and commitment needed to go on from here. I’m more optimistic than ever that we have a solid chance of automatic promotion. Just dig in, keep winning, ugly or no and the pressure mounts on the others. Still a lot of points to pick up and to lose, but that goes for everyone. Be nice to see more positive support for the lads, I have no doubt they would appreciate a kind word. COYWs.

Brentford win 3-0 with Benharama scoring a hat trick. As Kunye pointed out earlier this man cost £2.8 mln and as I previously pointed out Brentford's front three are probably a match for anyone. If Brentford gain promotion I believe they will surprise a lot of people as they play without fear.

I have to say it' Brentford are a lot more technical than Burnley and maybe a few others in the prem. If you play good football and open teams up, it doesn't matter in the Championship or prem, you can get results. This is why Wolves settled and thrived early in the prem. Brentford don't have the spending power like Wolves, so a lot harder work is needed in the prem. It proves that if we can pick up players off the radar of the big boys, this will help our cause. Lately, Fulham seem to have a knack for picking the wrong players. Our recruitment needs working on. Maybe get better scouts just like Brentford do. I didn't want to big them up too much because that annoying guy will rub it in on here...

WE really ground out a result and as they tired in the last ten minutes cut them to ribbons. The game has really post lockdown, five subs can have a huge effect on a game and these quarter drinks breaks allows the manager to modify his tactics. It is already a very tactical game but these two things are game changers literally.

posted by v.r.bedley (Guest) - Saturday 04th July 2020, 6:09 PM
 
Sorry ,but to add to my post ,3goals scored one by a full back and two by defensive midfielders.Dont you think this says a lot about our attack.
posted by v.r.bedley (Guest) - Saturday 04th July 2020, 6:12 PM
 
In the last ten minutes we looked like one of the top teams in the Division. If we could play like that for 80 minutes each game we could still finish second, though I cannot see WBA losing tomorrow. Must be within 2 points of WBA when we play them.
posted by The Time Is Now - Saturday 04th July 2020, 7:56 PM
 
v.r is right and where would we be without the Mitro goals.The goal tally of Cava,Deco and Knocker is minimal by comparison.Nothing in the last 2 games either but thankfully saved by goals from midfield/defence. Why we are looking to buy Knockeart is beyond me and Harrison Reid is a much more logical signing.

How can Luton hold Leeds, comfortably, at Elland Road and now are losing 0-5 at home to Reading? Brentford continue to live up to my expectation expressed at the time of Fulham's visit to Griffin Park.

After watching and managing a lot of football over the years I believe the answer to your question is that they put a lot of energy and emotion into holding Leeds and their next game was always going to be a problem. It happens regularly!!

What do you mean Brentford are only playing Wigan that’s why they scored 3 !! Fulham were only playing Birmingham, who haven’t won for the last 10 games, we could only manage a scrabbled goal in the 95 minute, that’s why I suggested Parker go and see how they do it.

When we have to defend we have no idea... When we have to attack we still have no idea. In the middle of the pitch, need I say more. I thought this game was about sticking the ball in the opponents net more times than our opponents can stick the ball in our net and therefore we win the game... I hate to say this for I am so frustrated and annoyed. However, I will. Roy the Boy was our man, he has more football knowledge on his little finger than the apprentice Scott Parker has in his entire brain.

The first clear error we have is...we just don't move the ball fast enough. Our whole playing style demands we move the ball faster and for some reason (ask Parker) we dont do it.

After the game against Millwall I thought we walk this league, apart from half hour against Boro and little patches here and there we have been poor. Can anybody fathom out why that should be?I guess after being beaten easily by both Barnsley and Hull,top six would be a fair achievement, but for the amount of money we have spent and the wages we pay we should be doing a whole lot better.Read we are signing Knockaert for around 10 million, not worth it, neither are Cav or the Decorator. The only one worth keeping would be Reed.Probably wont sign him, just like Norwood or Taggert, who makes the decisions on who stays or goes. We have never really replaced Fredericks at right back, should give SS another try, no point in having an academy if you are not to give promising players like Matt or young Jay a decent run in the team.
Replies
I tend to agree with most of what you have written. However securing those 3 forwards is a stroke of genius in my eyes. Just wait and see what a good manager can achieve with them. I was scared we would fail to get promoted and this excellent team on paper would be dismantled. It is said we have an option to make Reid’s transfer permanent, if it doesn’t happen, I imagine it would be because he has no desire to play Parker ball. We failed to replace Malone at LB permanently. Missing out on targettt was terrible work by khan. And yeah, not a RB to talk of since Fredericks (2 seasons!!!)

Wonder which (of the 15 possibly already written versions) Parker has up his sleeve to announce to the waiting world.....possiblities include: they were lucky, we played well at times, we deserevd to win, Mitro´s ommission left us short of a killer instinct up front, the wind was blowing the wrong way, I was upset by Owens' constant hatred of me and did not give the sort of inspiring pre-game team talk I should have, my sister had a domestic with (Harry) Arter last night and it obviously affected his performance on the pitch today ...any others worth a mention?

To be fair to Parker it is not many managers who publicly slate their players, that is done in privacy. In public you must explain your teams good points, if you can find any. In both the games we lost we had enough chances to win the game if we could shoot straight and had not been so loose at the back.

Interesting to watch the progress of Phil Foden who looks a class player these days. Was captain of the England under19s who won the World Cup Sess was also in the team, but doesn't figure in any of the Spurs line ups, it's not as if Spurs are doing all that well either.Did we overate him when he played for us, or do we still feel given the chance he can play at the highest level ?
posted by Rob (Guest) - Friday 03rd July 2020, 2:16 PM
 
Always thought Ryan Sess was overrated and people who have been on this board for years will no that. Lightweight, couldn't tackle and couldn't cross but had a knack of being in the right place at the right time in front of goal which meant that most of the time he was out of position ;0))) Jose may be a bit of a whatsname but he knows football and players and even he said he is not ready for the PL.

Fulham aren't to blame for Dembele and the like in my opinion, it's greedy players and agents. I've seen O'Reilly a few times now and he's not a bad player but he certainly is NOT the superstar that some people on this board make him out to be...

MST, i must beg to differ on your opinions on Jose Mourinho and our young Sess. This is the Mourinho who didn't think that Martial wasn't originally a number 9, and he gave the 9 spot to Zlatan instead. Martial who was bought in by Van der Gaal lost his confidence under Jose and so he has ruined more than a few young players careers. Martial to his credit is showing his quality now he has that 9 spot back. He didn't think much of De Bruyne, Salah, and the list goes on. Jose's judgement on player recruitment is terrible, and he has cost clubs he left behind millions because of his ego and is lack of knowledge about good players. Jose is impatient and he looks for a quick fix when he picks players who revere him. Jose's tactics are old hat now, and it will be only a matter of time before the spurs Chairman brings the axe down on Mr self-important, 'respect-me-Jose'. Ryan Sessegnon' how many Fulham fans still think he is not good enough for the prem? Sessegnon is a great player and he makes things happen 'if' he is played where Sessegnon can show his best. His best position isn't left-back, and we could have told Jose about that one. There isn't another player has intelligent as Sess who can thread a ball through to Cairney like he did in that memorable playoff. If there is somebody better in our side at the moment who is capable of threading balls through to Mitro, can somebody tell me who he is? Because we are not doing any of the basics Sess did very well. Just take a look at that Spurs side the other night. Every ball put through to Kane or Moura was poor. If Jose is still in charge next season, i can see Harry Kane leaving because Jose doesn't know how to get the best from that Spurs team just like Parker can't from ours. By the way' Drogba was the idea of Ranieri long before Jose mopped up the glory for Chelsea. Every great manager has his time, and i think that Jose's time is up in football. Football has moved on but Jose's tactics are stuck in the past...

DOES ANY ONE THINK ITS VIABLE TO GO UP THIS SEASON?.Thinking about it if the teams to go up spend next season playing to empty grounds they will lose a fortune,no season tickets no corporate deals no extras nothing just sky dosh,so the all players will want increase in wages plus agents fees so good by sky dosh.It is right now costing clubs a lot of dosh just to turn up, in our case if we went up we have a stand not ready till 21/22 so even if crowds returned we are down 12/14 thousand crowd down with limited sponsers, so is this the plan of parker?? lose and be 7th and watch three clubs come back down again making no dosh at all.

I think the better question is, do we really want to go up this season? I fear we would be slaughtered in every game we played and we would go straight back down. Far sooner we stay where we are get rid of the dead wood, re-build, consolidate and aim for promotion next season. Plus we´d have a brand new stand to show off on MOTD albeit with 20 seconds of highlights and the last televised game.
posted by Marbella White 1 - Thursday 02nd July 2020, 3:40 PM
 
Personally, I think the cances of promotion this year are slim. It is clear from the three games so far, how important our 12th man is to the team and I even if we do make the play-offs, I just can't see us beating any team in and around us home and away and then doing it at Wembley.

If you think about it our away form has been pretty dismal since Tigana managed FFC in the old first division and that, in my opinion, has always been due to our poor away support outside of London and the home counties. I remember being up at Leeds over the last two or three times we've played up there with less than 1,000 bothering to travel.

A vociforous crowd seems to be a must to spur our team on and without it we seems to be toothless and one dimensional. MW1 is right in my opinion therefore and I believe we would be whipping boys in the prem with this squad and Parker (who would undoubtably keep his job should we make it) at the helm.

A long windy road ahead mehthinks!

MW make you right, I’ would love another play off final, just can’t see us staying up if we did manage promotion. We need a major clear out. I would like to know who we would keep.

Good posts,been saying it for a while,no structure in our team or play,premier league is a mountain away. Not sure if Parker has much of a future as manager,judging by this season he’s managed to keep us up there but looking at teams like Sheffield United and Wolves they have a bit of backbone which is definitely missing in our squad. Big clear out required let’s start with an inspirational leader/captain can count on one hand the amount of decent games Cairney s had,plus half a dozen overpaid prima donnas who should stand out in this division. The attitude of professional players is appalling.

I can't see too many teams getting up and staying up. I also think that we worry too much about the ifs and buts, and we should leave the worrying until we get there.

I completely disagree Owen. Some well run clubs have made a fist of it in the past - Bournemouth, Wolves, Sheff. Utd, FULHAM! I think Leeds and West Brom have as good a chance as anyone and I think that with such a long absence Leeds will invest well and do everything possible to have as long run in the Prem.

We are no longer a well run club and the profligate spending last season coupled with the frugality of this season proves that well. You have written many times that you have no confidence in Parker and if Mr optimistic thinks Parker is a poor appointment then.....

Any team that gets promoted in any season the main priority is to stay up first and foremost. To achieve this you need a strong spine to the team, you need a manager who can build a team from the back. The same manager has to select what players we need and not an inexperienced stat man who is buying players online. Due to this pandemic players will be cheaper, an experienced manager would know what players would suit his system. Will the Khans do this? I can t see it myself. Football is a game of ifs and buts and always will be. Parker should be moved on and the Khans need to listen to any manager they bring in, if they fail to do this we will be the same through the length of their tenure. That’s my only worry.

So guess i was correct then, its not viable or worth a punt to go up as we will end up more in debt.Leave it to tree others and stand back and watch , win in season 21/22 and w ecould be in clover .

Arch Bishop' that is utter nonsense! It is likened to telling a teenager to go for a CSE grade rather than an O level. For one, the parachute payments are quite lucrative for starters. The prem league has been going for 20 years plus now, and there is a history of quite a few clubs gaining promotion then to go on to relegation. It is counterproductive to be too analytical about our situation and besides, i think it sends out a negative vibe to the players. What will the likes of Mitrovic be thinking in the close season still stuck in the Championship? If we are fortunate that the results go for us and we gain promotion, it will boost confidence and the clubs coffers. I keep harping on about Bournemouth and Burnley's up and downs before they eventually settled into the prem and we Fulham can do so again. We have the structure in place but we lack quality to sustain in the prem at the moment, but who knows? A whiff of promotion in the air, and all of a sudden spring is in the air, the birds are singing again and the Chairman is working vigorously on that famous laptop. It is a simple plan, we have to pick the right players instead of the wrong ones. It is as simple as that and we can do it, we have a great history for bringing in players under the radar, allbeit not recently. I don't think any of this good stuff will happen under dunce Parker, but it is not impossible. Everyone else think that we have ability and talent, and maybe just maybe, the likes of Knockheart will show something of the 10 million we are apparently buying him for. Knockheart constantly runs into culdesacs and he cannot string a pass into Mitrovic. Give me young Sessegnon all day long for intelligence. MST' does not rate him. If we had Sessegnon, we would have more goals from more of our players because the kid has more intelligence than our squad put together. I still think that Slavisa would organize our lot in 5 minutes and get everyone playing just like that, just my opinion. We are capable of stringing a few results together even without Mitrovic if we man up and shape up. The players need some self-belief. It is a disgrace that we are still sticking to Scott Parker for whatever reason...

Doubt Leeds wil overspend and will struggle as will West Brom thought we was easily the better side first half at Leeds after gifting them an early goal thought overall we deserved a point we gifted them there second half goals still think one of them will come unstuck with regret of little bees are around in playoffs we will have to play really well to beat them although first half at cottage again thought we edged first half and had a couple of chances we should have took

Either way go up get in debt if there not careful don’t go up definatley in trouble very expensive squad to maintain have a mass clearout we will be like our bitter friends down the road ( qpr ) mind you at least all these prospects we are Told. about will get a chance before they are sold

Now its almost certain we can prepare for playoffs. Barring Derby beating everyone at the top out of sight and us losing every game. We need the best players available and ready for the challenges in August. Does anyone anywhere know what is the state of play with Kamara. Kongolo. Mawson. Not saying they would be our saviours just more options!

Read somewhere that Kongolo and Kamara are Covid victims but culd be speculation as it was on New Now sometime ago...

Sounds like speculation. At least with kamara as he was at the stadium v Brentford. If it was covid he would be nowhere near the club.
posted by O David (Guest) - Thursday 02nd July 2020, 12:17 PM
 
Perhaps but it would explain why he and Kongolo were not in the squads at Leeds or QPR. They haven't played to get injured and with Mitro out, you'd think Kamara would be the first name on the team sheet.

Just heard from GJ they are both injured actually. Kamara to miss quite a few games as well apparently :0(

posted by KUNYE (Guest) - Thursday 02nd July 2020, 7:26 PM
 
We do not have any Premier League Level players so we would need to buy a new team if we go up. As we found last season £100m does not buy you a decent team so you need an inspirational manager or one who is a tactical genius to compensate, though of course we cannot afford one of those. We are buggered.

We dropped another place. Derby and Cardiff are in good form. Brentford are running away but West Brom and Leeds are stuttering. Crazy league! If we win all our remaining games, I think still have a chance of automatic promotion but if we lose 4 more we will be caught!!
Replies
With WBA winning tonight, that surely puts paid to any fancy ideas that both us and Brentford had of maybe still having a shot at automatic promotion, so we now look destined to meet Brentford in the play final at Wembley, and that's not a given for either of us, but we just cant allow our poor relations down the road to beat us three times in a season.

John for 55 odd years as a FFC fan Iv'e been looking over my shoulder & this season is no different. We have a captain with no bottle, a manager with no clue, and owners dim but nice(football) as Harry Enfield would say. I backed FFC for auto promotion pre covid, will I ever learn, Doubt it.

Almost everyone agrees that our performance was abysmal. I can only assume that our defence were not ready for the ko and therefore, the referee should have disallowed QPR's goal as it was unsporting to score after 1 minute when our lads had not finished discussing what they did over the weekend. Once again our team selection was strange and even with nine subs there is no room for our promising youngsters. The team have obviously still in lockdown and QPR could and should have won as they had at least two gilt edged chances to score. What is Parker's problem? He cannot communicate, has lost respect and looks and sounds like a broken man. I believe I was one of the first to criticise his appointment and stated he should learn his trade in non league football. If Khan retain Parker as manager then I fear the players will just continue to turn up, under perform and continue with the present could not care less attitude. Can anyone tell me what has happened to Kamara? Is he injured or just out of favour. I not that we have signed a 17 year old left back from PSG on a freebie but he is unlikely to get a game at Fulham. Take care everyone.

My guess concerning Parker is that he is stuck in coming up with a credible excuse the 3rd time of asking. Brentford report was a straight-forward one, in that you compliment your opponent and give them the maximum respect. Scott Parker was over the top with compliments like he always is, in my opinion. Leeds is a different beast because he knows they are top and he goes along with his before match details as you do. QPR, what can you really say that will instill confidence to our team and to himself? The only thing Parker can hit back with, is about the playoffs, and if he was a touch cheeky, he might have explained that the playoffs was the plan all along? Because of his inexperience and nievity, Parker is getting himself into a tongue twist and no doubt the players are picking up his nervousness. The Khans can put him out of his misery for me because we are doomed to fail with Parker now. That nervousness and team selections that make no sense will ensure we fail in the playoffs. It is high time the Khans do the right thing, and that is to bring the axe down on the rein of Scott Parker...

Announced this afternoon from Fulham's training ground at MP is that within the next week fulham on managerial advice will be signing Knockaert for a fee of 10m.The fulham manager stated that he is part of our future plans and at this given price is a good value acquisition. If the owners sanction this they need to be brain tested.

Your so right dear boy, but deep down you and the rest of us who are crying out for change know that banging your head against a brick wall would be a doddle compared with seeing our beloved club given a huge shot in the arm in the shape of a new face at the helm. You and many others have longed for the owner to relieve SP of his duties. Nothing against him and recognise how good a player he was but management is an entirely different matter.

Agree its why all our best youth cant stay.. If you pay a player 30-30k a week (Knockaert is on £45k at brighton so we must be near)plus 10m..and we offer Matt and others a few k and no hope of game time..until we change the fundamentals in this club..ie lets not try and be Man City but be sustainable.. we will continue on this cylcle.. Tony Kahn is like Trump in that he's incompetenet but has a doting father who gives hi what he wants..its not theat either dont care..bit that the sone is useless..we have a CEO who fawns over them so he can take his 800k a year and we let pros like Mike Rigg go..because we create a pr hate campaign against them..We well may go up because its such a crap league this year but when you beat out the qualities of TC and others to suit a U18 manager and his assistant t will always be the same..stop throwing money away and build a DNA that works..

It is recognised amongst the Championship management that Brentford's B M W are possibly the best forward trio in that division == GOOD SCOUTING, GOOD BUYING, GOOD TRAINING cost WATKINS~ 1.8m. BENRAHMA~ 2.8m. MBEUMO~ 3,5m TOTAL 8.1 million, well overpriced.

O.K. we won at Loftus Road but that was overshadowed by allowing them to score in the opening minute. I hope you lot also noticed that last night lowly Luton not only held mighty Leeds United to a 1 -1 draw but led the most of the match! Why could we not do better than Luton against Leeds? I agree that some of these loan signing, just like last season are not putting the effort in, because they are now awaiting offers from clubs to where they will play next season, hopefully not at Craven Cottage. Mitrovic is thick, getting banned just when we needed our leader. What about getting Sean Dyche in, that would shake this lot up but he only played and has managed in the North of England.

I am surprised there has been so few comments on how poorly these two have been playing and yes I am aware Arter scored last night as well as making three or four wayward passes. Brian and Ream against Leeds were terrible Harrison the Leeds winger ran from his own half and into our area before scoring and no attempt at a tackle. Ream fell over in our area the ball went behind him and the Leeds player scored and last night he never got of the ground for there first goal. Harry Arter is a disaster waiting to happen and his goal does not change that would he get a place in the team if he was not Parkers brother in law?

Yes I agree Ream is nowhere as good as he was a couple of seasons ago, like all of us, time has caught up with him. He has become slow and hesitant unfortunately. As for Arter, I am not an admirer but I do like his passion on the pitch.
