The reason I love our manager.....
« on: September 14, 2017, 09:43:54 AM »
Is his honest opinion of how we play and what we must do to improve.  I get the sense that should we  ever be promoted, win the Premier League and even the Champions League, he'd be upset about an easily conceded goal, or a missed chance. He's never satisfied- and that makes him a winner in my book. .

Oh - the last line in the 'Head Coach Reaction' is priceless....

To be frank I think we are playing the most attractive football I have ever seen in all my years (55 plus) of supporting the glorious Fulham. It is without a doubt  the most attractive in the Championship and even the opposition are saying it.

OK we need to do some work defensively but there is not one player in our squad who would not walk in to any of  the other teams.

To me we are playing the best football since the Tigana days and nights. Every time I hear of another club's manager being shown the door I worry.....

No, we are not playing as well as we were in the second half of last season. We are struggling because of the loss of Cairney and Alluko which is not really surprising.

Great thread and agree with what everyone stated except the usual doom and gloom post, that attempts to put an enthusiastic feeling to bed!
This manager is the best since Tigana and we must keep him at all costs!

Personally I think the best football I have seen at Fulham is under Jol with a midfield of Dempsey, Dembele, Diarra, Murphy and Duff

He's never satisfied- and that makes him a winner in my book.

In essence I don't think you can satisfy someone like Jokanovic because he'll still believe you can always be better in much the way he played the game himself.  I also feel he is a firm believer in the 'total football' ethics of Johann Cruyff where players can do almost anything they want as long as they believe in themselves.  I would guess that is why he is such a hard taskmaster on the training ground and the reason why he was just a tad upset with Fulham's pre-season (or non-pre-season) which is why we have stuttered a little, compared to December to May, in our first seven games.   But I see signs of better, much better, to come already and I expect us to go on a run to beat all runs from mid-October onward if not just before.  I think he has sharp eyes for what matters in players' abilities and that is why he is quick to dismiss inferior goods.

I hope history will come to mark the Jokanovic era as one of the best Fulham have ever had because the guy is trying really hard to give the Club just that.   I hope the owners appreciate his efforts and try to better themselves too.

You have made a fair point although I was not really referring to just this season but to his tenure since joining. The football us fast direct and exciting. My only worry which is mentioned elsewhere is any vacancy in the Prem or top league in Europe they must be looking at Slavisa.

Any club needing a manager is going to be looking at SJ,just hope he stays and takes fulham up with him rather than getting tempted away.

We took a while to get going last season.  TC is a massive miss, my major concerns are centred on how long before he is fit again.

Will he be tempted away if we don't go up this season?

Nothing to smile about until we are up there and competing for promotion, I completely agree with his attitude and sentiment that we need to do better, its not been good enough so far and Slav is the first to say so.

Its brilliant to have an ambitious manager, and we must do everything possible to keep him.
