Great shouts above - thanks lads, and thanks JC, for uploading all these, and  the Eric Bogle vid on the July 1916 thread, here's another great Eric Bogle song -

It was the Pogues version, which I saw them perform live,  which really got me into this song, and led me to discover the work of  the great Eric Bogle-

Thx for posting the entire article.  Also interesting was the following:

""Four other players — Josh Onomah, Anthony Knockaert, Ivan Cavaleiro and Terence Kongolo — are not training with the squad. It is understood that Silva wants to keep them separate from the group as he does not see them as part of his Premier League plans. The club are known to be open to offers for three of the four: Onomah, Cavaleiro and Knockaert.""

Not sure I follow regards Kongolo.  Not in his PL plans?  Yet, not open to offers for him?

I'm sure I saw Knockaert in the video of training posted on the club website a few days ago.
Does that mean the whole article is nonsense?
I'd never exclude these players from training if I was MS. Given the possibility that transfer deals may fall through, we may need to keep some/all of these players. They've all contributed well when in form so let's show them some respect - they're still part of the family and, speaking for myself, if they do leave and come back as visiting players for another club I'd stand up and give them a round of applause as they approach the Hammersmith End

All of the players apparently allegedly cast away from the main group have all been on video training with the “first team” which is why I think the whole article struggles to maintain any authenticity when it’s quite easily contradicted by information freely available that’s less than 48 hours old

Not sure, but if you see the Back to the Grass video, none of the 4: Knockaert, Kongolo, Cav and Onomah are taking part. Yes, some of them were in the video before First Day Back video - which looks to be just fitness/form number taking for record purposes.

I would say the article is more up to date and more accurate as the back-to-grass video seems to imply those are the outfield players at Silva's disposal.


Agree, Matt - when I saw  Knock in the first vid I felt sorry for him, greeting other players and with a smile on his face, and having to undergo these very rigorous  fitness assessments, while  knowing that he wouldn't be featuring as part of the team, although the announcement hadn't then been made that he and a few others would be training separately.

But I didn't see him in the second vid of the players  in training, nor others I thought I recognized in the first vid, like Kongolo and Onomha.

Last year I was Very Lucky to spot a deal for £200 for the whole year, and took a bit of work to get it, but was very worth it.

They usually give out such deals the 1-3 weeks before the season starts, so I am keeping my eye out now, and hope to catch another such deal.

Keep 'em peeled

Isn’t Cakir supposedly incredible? I’ve never seen him but he had a lot of buzz around him

Highest save percentage of any keeper in europe

YouTube videos would seem to suggest he has an annoying habit of making a great save but often seems to parry the ball right back into the box, risking the rebound.

Quite possibly the highlight reel is just cut that way because it watches better like that, but his handling is a little off to me.

Cakir is very highly rated...although the last highly rated keeper we bought from Turkey didn't work out so well!

Seriously not messing around though are we 20m on palhinha ...20m on cakir...8 mil on Solomon (unless we can get him on a free loan)

Romagnoli, Cakir, Solomon, palhinha....what a set of transfers that would be ...fingers crossed

What is the PS?


Isn't it the Premiership    :0)

If it is, you're on the wrong forum as Fulham don't play Rugby Union ;)

I think it is crazy how defensive, and frankly rude, some of our posters are to fans on here simply voicing concerns that we have yet to sign anyone.
Forest have two good names added to their squad and they came up via the play-offs. So they have done better than us.

The point is the sooner you have the squad improved the better it is. That is undeniable.

There is no virtue in adding a few random names close to the season's start in the hope it is a bit cheaper.

Silva must have had a long list ready back in April. That is his style, he is prepared and thinks it through. But we have yet to add one name. Time to do so is this week.

I find it crazy how people are so quick to criticise the club when they know absolutely bugger all about what is going on at the club, what players Silva actually wants, what players we are in talks with etc etc etc.

We were promoted in April and have yet to sign a player.

Given that the window has only just opened we weren’t likely to sign anyone in May we’re we?
