Rui Fonte
« on: February 11, 2018, 07:02:21 AM »
I really cant see why Fonte starts, hes bringing absolutly nothing right now. Kamara for me should be our starting Striker with Mitro the Sub. Fonte isnt on the Level and Kamara have a lot pace and strength.

Yesterday wasnt that bad, we had our chances and a Point away is always good.

I still find it odd why people think speed and strength are superior assets than skill and brains.
I'm not trying to change people's opinion because I think they just like a player who has these assets but all i would say is look at the bigger picture.

That's what our manager has to do. Fonte is a class player who is great for the team.

Just remember.  We are the 2nd highest scoring team in the league. Just 4 goals less than wolves.

Kamara and mitrovic played a whole half yesterday and we lost that half 1-0.

Cairney and Fonte would create so many chances for the rest of the team. Its frustrating they havent had a chance to get a run going .

What kamara gives us is a diffrent option. He will get better. I like him at the moment as a plan b

Fonte is there to score goals,assist and have shots ,headers.
On this he fails miserably. Give  him a chance ,How long does he want?

The aim was to get three points from yesterday's game.  That is, I am guessing, the same objective as we have had at the start of every game we have played this season.  We fell short yesterday primarily because an opposition player produced one sublime finish.  It could be argued that we failed to dictate the game after taking an early lead and squandered a few chances along the way, but the reality of football is that on certain days stuff doesn't happen no matter how hard you try to make it do so.  The lads can and will play better as they will show next game. 

But please don't let us get embroiled in looking for scapegoats every time we don't achieve maximum points return.

Yes. You win. How can I possibly counter a post like that. Let him rot in the reserves

agree with toshs mate. We played quite well against a team fighting for their lives . It was abetter performance than barnsley away and if Stefans  shot had gone in instead of hitting the post there would be no discussion.
With regard to Fonte. Piazon and Fonte compliment each other well and we have more control over proceedings whenthey play. kamara has done well but our team play is not quite the same when he comes on, but he does provide other individual  qualities ,which dont. always fit in with the way the team is playing.
I also suspect that when Mitrovic starts starting we are more likely to see ojo on that side other than Piazon.

Fonte has been hammered on here on more than this occasion, a little unfairly he works extremely hard chases everything he can,but I have to say produces very little. My opinion is he just doesnt fit.

Fonte could easily be the creator in midfield that we’ve missed since Cairney’s injury. Shame Jokanovic hasn’t given him much of a chance with another ST up top.

Absolutely agree he is a midfielder, attributes he brings to the game would work well with Mitro up front

We're all supporting the same team and all hope for success.  Some players are better than others and each of us will probably have different views about which players are the better ones. 

Personally I rate Fonte as one of our top players.  He has skill and vision.  When he plays we look a much better side.  I don't particularly enjoy watching kick and rush football with a couple of big lumps up front.

MoM yesterday was Fonte until he got taken off and after that we lost rhythm and were pegged back.

I dont say Rui Fonte is a bad Player, i just think he not made for this League. Its not only the Pace from Kamara who makes him Dangerouse. I think he made a huge step also with the ball etc. Of course Fonte has Skill and Tecninc, but he is too lightweight and didnt put the opposite Defense under pressure.

And i dont want to talk bad about him, he is a Fulham Player and i Support every Player and i think he has the heart on the right spot.
