Yes, I am too expecting a couple of proven "pedigree" defenders to be signed to challenge our current batch.

And a World Class goalkeeper, probably slightly aging, as a bonus.... you know, since some fans here said that we have bottomless wealth and budget at Fulham and that seems to be main factor for success... hahaha

Unless we sign someone in the next 7 days (giving a minimum of 2 weeks preseason), we have again failed to strengthen the defence in time. I'm actually normally quite positive with TK especially after Mitro et al but this is really starting to p*ss me off now. Sign a flipping defender mate!!!

If we sell R.Sess near deadline day as expected and but no one, do you really think our defense is our biggest weakness

Six Best Defenders - Christie, Odoi, Mawson, Ream, MLM and Bryan
Six Best Midfieldes - Cisse, McDonald, Anguissa, Johasen, Cairney, De La Torre
Six Best Forwards - Calverio, Kamara, Fonte, Mitro, Atiye, Kebano

Including subs most games in 17/18 we played 4 defenders, 4 midfielders and 5 forwards

Of course our defence is our biggest weakness! It has been for 2 seasons!

After that Paul Koncheski. I just think they are trying to get revenge.

How can you can this defensive unit be shocking when it went 360 minutes in the premier league without conceeding a goal, plus in the last seven games against top tier teams it has only conceeded more than one goal once in seven games? In the same seven games with three clean sheets, Fulham has only scored four goals in the seven games. Since Parker, defense is more of a strength than a weakness, plus Mawson will rejoin the team in the backline, where as Seri and R.Sess seem set to leave the attack.

Parker’s Record (including 10 premier league games plus  Burnley and Porto friendly)
12 Games 8 Goals Scored (4 Babel, 1 Chambers, 1 Atiye, 1 Cairney and 1 Penalty) 20 Goals Conceeded

Converting that to a 38 Game Seasons that is 25 goals scored (2nd worst last season) and 63 goal conceded (6th worst last season).

As per usual, it does your arguments no favours when you just cherry pick the statistics that suits your arguments. I do agree that our defenders when given a chance in a more stable system is fairly capable. However, you cannot only look at a small sample size from last season. If so, my counterargument is to look at the last game against a low scoring lower half opponent in Newcastle. They scored 4 goals on us. That is of course also a nonsensical argument.

The argument should most likely instead be that if the team gets a proper chance to gel and regain some confidence, they may be fairly capable. Further, if you would like to draw comparisons then our last season in the Championship is probably a better measurement on our chances to defend properly. Despite what some may believe, we had the 7th best defence (in terms of goals against) only 1 more goal conceded than the fourth best defensive team. Last year that number would have put us as the third best team defensively in the Championship. If SP gets the team to play as a unit, I will not be worried about the quality of our players.

So, I agree that our defenders are most likely good enough for this level, but disagree with how you arrive at that conclusion.

We could upgrade many positions and improve. our defense and midfield are the most settled part of the team. The attack losing Babel and R.Sess is going to be changed, if we can build the best front line in the league this transfer window including backups, i’m sure the backline will hold out. Alternatively, if we upgrade the backline, i’m not sure it will result in conceeding less than a goal a game as cohesion has not yet developed and without Mitro and Sess we aren’t going to be great.

Before Roy it was that useful full back Steve Finnan but before that it was Richard Money and that didn’t work out too well for them

In a pub in Wallasey to-night, next to Liverpool
The jovial barman seemed very happy when I said you have stolen one of ours, he says ahh your a Fulham fan then
He wonders whether Harvey "will he get enough playing time / opportunity?!"
I reminded him (the barman) that our last "sale" to the Pool didn't quite work out very well for them (our dear old Woy) but that we were very happy with their Kevin Keegan before that!!
Harvey lad, just be very careful what you wish for, the proverbial grass isn't always greener
This also applies to young Sess x 2

To add on, I said this in a different thread as well- we all complain about our kids not getting enough chances, but then we all also want a new signing rather than acknowledging that Parker might want to fully back S. Sessegnon/Fossey/Drameh for next season. I think a proper pathway to the first team is one of Parker's "things", because Taylor-Crossdale spoke quite openly about it when he signed. So if we're looking for a Christie replacement, we might already have it.

Could his performance have been impacted by his financial disputes with his old club?

Or am I even now still trying to justify his performances when I should be facing facts.
