I'm just reading BBC text and your comments.
It seems zero creativity and not a shot yet despite 81% possession
I think we'd be better off with McDonald. Or perhaps Parker thinks that all this dynamism and rapid movement would be too much for him at his age...

The Barnsley home defeat should have been a wake-up call that things needed to be revitalised yet SP seems to have just carried on in the same way.
The sad thing is that since February nobody, based on the posts here and conversations with other Whites, seems to be filled with any enthusiasm at all about our play. If opposition in the lower places of the Championship have rumbled us, can you imagine what would happen against top tier teams.
What puzzles me is why no reaction from SP

Can we all agree...after this season...u either change the manager...or we buy 5 new starters?

This is Fulham. Creating scoring chances other than a cross in the box is not something we know how to do.

I like Scott Parker...but I hate his coaching staff.

And the manager shouldn't have his sister's husband on the squad. What was the point of bringing Stefjo back?

It's well known the manager here doesn't get say on transfers, so let's not delude ourselves Arter was Scott's signing.

StefJo has started 19 games this season, so he's featured more than you think.

We certainly are boring to watch. Going against 11 in front of the ball doesn't help. Still, Reid is always in the area, always looking like he's dangerous but there is never an end product.
I wonder how much of the criticism against Ream is the fault of an out of form Hector?

Seems that our FB´s have been told not to raid too far up so as not to expose our defence to a counter.

I'm not sure the coaching staff are that perceptive

Leeds 3-1....That's them gone then.
Play offs it is then,hope we're saving ourselves for them with this showing so far.

Some case for an offside as Ezgjan Alioski was stood right in front of the Rovers keeper as the shot came in, but there was no decision coming.

He did the same against us.

Can we all agree...after this season...u either change the manager...or we buy 5 new starters?

This is Fulham. Creating scoring chances other than a cross in the box is not something we know how to do.

I like Scott Parker...but I hate his coaching staff.

And the manager shouldn't have his sister's husband on the squad. What was the point of bringing Stefjo back?

Disagree, sounds like recipe for disaster.

I am also not a fan of conspiracy theories, and think the accusation is quite serious. Do you really think so little of Parker’s character?

And Johansen was our player all along, and had played a lot.

Lastly, why do you hate Parker’s coaching staff?

It's well known the manager here doesn't get say on transfers, so let's not delude ourselves Arter was Scott's signing.

StefJo has started 19 games this season, so he's featured more than you think.

The Manager does have a say, just because Slav threw his teddy out the cot doesnt mean every manager does

I believe he is a straight up dedicated guy doing his absolute best. It's just that he's not up to it. He may well become a strong manager but imho it's years away

You could cut the keeper delay of game by requiring that he play the ball where he receives it rather than let him run about to the far side of the box. That and if he goes off his feet he must spot the ball and kick from there.
