We were lucky only to be 1-0 after 72 seconds.

This is going to be a bad day at the office I think.  Maybe that means they'll give us no respect at the Cottage next week and we'll turn them over?

...or maybe they'll give us no respect at the Cottage next week and still put 4 past us.

Riether's cross just now told me everything I needed to see. 

A cross to an empty box and any Fulham players even in the general vicinity had their feet rooted to the spot.

Post by: cottage cheese on January 26, 2013, 05:47:55 PM
Why keep crossing the ball if there is no one in the box.

Berbabtov should be in the box but like I have been saying for a while, he dsnt trust the team to supply him so he feels the need to step out of the box to get the ball...leaving no one in it

Post by: St Eve on January 26, 2013, 05:49:26 PM
Our build up is not bad, a little slow, but where are our forwards? As for the Senderos remark, a Hughes mistake is uncharacteristic, a Senderos mistake is the norm

I don't know what it is, we've got such an experienced side but we just don't look it at all. We're just making so many mistakes at the back and the two deliberate hand balls. I just dont get it.

we just see Berba in a nutshell...

31st min, AMAZING control that only a few in the world can do followed by NO movenment after, he literally moved 5yards MAX from the centre circle and had no desire to join the attack

It's going to be a l-o-o-n-n-n-g-g-g night.

Following the MK Dons and Luton exploits, and Aldershot going so close at Boro, I fancied the underdog in this one too but it's a mircale we are just the one down.

There's time yet...

That is basically all he does -all the time basically 24/7.  :dead horse: :dead horse: :dead horse: :dead horse: :dead horse: :dead horse:
He will have one moment of "something" and all of his supporters come out and tell us how wonderful he is. He below average on every level and will NEVER grow a pair of stones to play in the League - period end of story.
I would say they would and "should" be "embarrassed" by their performance but they won't and don't because they have proven they really don't give a crap....how do yo come out in the second half like that!

All our issues have come from the Riise's side.  Why is he playing? Also, we dont need wide players away. We need to be better defensively.  And now, Aaron Hughues, wow, I mean how do you allow Chicharito so much room.  Say what you want, but I do miss Danny Murphy, at least he could pass unlike a few of our midfielders.

Can we get rid of Jol now?

Honestly, do you REALLY THINK that another manager couldn't do SOMETHING more with this squad?  We cannot possibly get any worse so it wouldn't matter if we employed a child to take over the reigns as if we're going to be relegated it's going to happen with Jol at the helm anyway.

There is always the chance, slim though it might be, that a change in management might improve the situation..  A scrapper on a short term contract and try again next season with someone new in charge.

Jol is a total, utter, catastrophic Lawrie-Sanchez-esque disaster of a manager.  He should be at a much better club like Schalke who deserve him.

Not looking forward to being in the Hammy for the rematch next weekend :(

How many times will Ruiz be dispossessed or simply just give the ball away.

 :54:
That is basically all he does -all the time basically 24/7.   :dead horse: :dead horse: :dead horse: :dead horse: :dead horse: :dead horse:
He will have one moment of "something" and all of his supporters come out and tell us how wonderful he is. He is a below average on every level and will NEVER grow a pair of stones to play in the League - period end of story.
I would say they would and "should" be "embarrassed" by their performance but they won't and don't because they have proven they really don't give a crap....how do yo come out in the second half like that!

it is Jol's fault.  He cant get that we are very very bad defensively.  I'd say defensively we are the worst team in the league.  As such we need to play further back and on counters.   I cant believe it. We have become a pub team.
How can you play a counter attacking game when have no pace in the entire squad (bar an undisciplined Frei).

The root of everything is the worst midfield in the Premier League.

i agree to an extent mate but we wont get more wuality like him and he NEEDS it.... he also needs a striker not someone as similar to him as Ruiz.... i think we would be better without him. not cos he is poor as he is different class but a team with our ability he brings more nagatives than positives for me

and why on earth do you believe that the 1/2 of the team to be dumped @ the end of the season would bother now to "dig deep & survive"
If they are that useless & demotivated then they won't bother,just take the pay cheque & hope to move on
What IS required is Jol to get a grip,prove he has some man management abilities & act to get us out of this mess - there is next week to actually achieve something as far as new signings
To reorganise,enthuse,direct,manage,motivate & provide some competition for places
To prove why MAF & the Board beleived he was the messiah,the chosen one
No one realistically expected us to get anything from today (although one can always hope)
So the games against West Ham & Norwich have huge significance
Unfortunately there is no time now to dump Jol - we have to stick with him
If he can perform a rescue act then it may be enough to keep him on
However,jury still out on that

Dejagah was by far Fulham's best player, even though he only played 20 minutes...

Since he came on the right-wing got involved and Fulham started playing with more energy and purpose going forward. He also had a few shots and won a couple corners.

Duff and Kacaniklic were both very poor.

I think Duff is just finished physically, been playing top level football for 15 years and it has just caught up with him.

Kaca actively looked disinterested at times, wasn't making the runs he was early in the season.

Even if we get more dynamic in the centre of midfield, we'll need to play with real pace out wide to compensate for the relative lack of pace from Berba and Ruiz.

Let's be honest we have the oldest bloody team in the world. We have to rebuild, but money needs to be freed up and it isn't. Not suggesting we do a Pompey or Leeds, but you have to spend to stay in the premiership. All the clubs around us are. Villa might be the exception, but they were my pick at the beginning of the season to go down.
If you have thoughts of top 5 or 6 like Spurs you have to spend big money and they do. Gave us 22 million and it is still in the bank

It's like the team have been told that anytime they get the ball they must have a vision of Berba's undergarment against Southampton and do exactly what it says or be put in the under 21's and not spoken to again for the rest of their contract

On at least 3 occasions Ruiz got the ball in a nice position and decided to go sideways or even backwards to Berba despite players in front being in better positions.
When they get the ball they look almost uncomfortable like its find Berba or else. Maybe the pressure of playing with such a comfortable on the ball player, I don't know

Terrible on offense, terrible on defense. No shots on goal from open play...again. It's hard to believe these are the same players who looked so good in the first 1/4 of the season, they now appear to have zero ideas how to create chances and close to zero organization at the back to deny the opponent chances.

Based on current form, WHam could bludgeon us on Wednesday, and Man U must surely be looking forward to next weekend. The way things are going, I would welcome 1 point vs WHam and another 1 vs Norwich; Stoke should bully this lot off the pitch in half an hour. We are awful, but we may still avoid the drop; QPR and Villa are probably no better, and we only need one of Wigan, Reading, Newcastle and Norwich to stay/slip below us. There really are two divisions in the BPL this year, and we're established in the crap division.

Just back in the door from an incredibly disappointing day out. One the fun side, it was nice to chat with some fellow Fulham fans, few drinks etc and the thrill of the day was the landing in Dublin tonight, as the pilot had to do a go-around. :yay: The wind was pretty strong to be fair! I spent the flight talking to a Carlisle United fan from Ireland who goes to most home games from Shannon in Ireland. He drives from Shannon to Dublin, which is well over 3 hours, flies to Manchester, gets the train from Manchester to Carlisle (2 hours) and does the opposite trip back, in the same day. He spoke very highly of us as a club.

Apart from that it was an extraordinarily disappointing performance. I don't mind spending money following the team home and away when the teams puts in a respectable shift but that performance today was abysmal. The whole team looked completely disinterested and disjointed. I am dreading Wednesday night and don't even get me started about next Saturday. Big Sam will be thanking God that he has us next on current form.
