IMO - been saying for two seasons: Neither Button nor Betinelli are NOT up to this league. And most definitely not Prem should we ever get back there.

Smithies from QPR would be a good replacement. And we're we not linked with Hennessy last year? That could have worked outto be a good signing.



Hi there.... we think alike, I don't think we have met before, though... hehe

My argument is usually both Button and Betts compliment each other too much.

We need a pedigree of a keeper to say without a doubt that he is the number 1.

With Betts and Burton we almost have the same situation as Steks and Stockdale i.e. heart will say Betts or Stockdale. Head will say all four are average at best.

Our good run last year had Betts in goal. I think it's time to change keeper and sell Button on.

I thought their first goal was poor keeping.

I thought it more to do with Kalas and co just letting him waltz past them and shoot.

Terrible defending, there was no sign of a tackle , the player had lots of time to line up hisshot.

Tend to agree.  Not saying Button is awful or that Betts is special but for me he edges it and should be given a run. We need every small improvement possible right now and it would make sense to give Betts a few matches.

he was truly awful, he needs to be dropped, no team can compete with a GK that lets in simple shots.

And Betts offers more communication (much more vocal), something the hapless Button lacks.

I feel the time has come for Betts to be handed the Goalkeeping duties.

Why should this question be getting asked every week? This clown should not be in the side! Yes there was a deflection but got to be saving that. Isn't he supposed to be 'a good shot stopper'? The support of him baffles me, useless.

David Button has unfortunately started to become a pantomime. Well I do not want Fulham to be Cinderella and not be able to put their foot on the ball.

Not often I disagree with you, but Fulham are always able to put their foot on the ball, it's knowing what to do with it once they have it that is the problem! Anyway the pantomime season is now but we still think it is Summer and playing like a circus act! I am sure we will all feel better after the B'ham match, I know I will as the Gordons bottle will probably make an appearance after 10 minutes though there is a good chance it might be an hour earlier depending on the team selection, I won't hold my breath!!

How dare you disagree with me Dave, it’s against the law.
May I recommend you open up your Gordon’s Gin earlier than normal, like Wednesday morning, it could be a long week, for us all.
