Fulham striker Steve Marlet believes The Cottagers are unfairly labelled a moneybags outfit, and wants everybody to bide their time before judging the Londoners, who are without a home at the moment, with Craven Cottage being redeveloped.

"During games, no team has dominated us," he said.

"We are just too much as players - however sometimes we manage the matches badly and we lose stupidly.

"Unfortunately the English media don't talk enough about the game, they prefer to associate us with money, and talk about our very rich chairman.

The speedy striker is also convinced that Manager Jean Tigana will silence all of his critics.

"The football specialists know Tigana is the right man for the job," he said.

"Fulham were champions in Division One and Division Two, but there are times when you need to wait, there is no miracle.

"People would be blind not to support Tigana.

"My performances are quite good, and the way people look at me is evolving.
