General Discussion / Re: Pod interview with Tony Khan
« Last post by wheelerdeeler on Today at 02:19:00 AM »
I don't think Tony Khan said anything that contradicts that? He basically said things to the effect of he was involved in the Mitrovic deal in the sense that he was the one who sanctioned the deal and convinced Shahid Khan to give Mitrovic whatever his wages were which were the biggest we'd ever offered in the Championship. He specifically mentioned "prior relationships" in regard to the Mitrovic deal which is pretty clearly the Jokanovic side of the deal.

Keeping Babel, Mitrovic and Cairney in this window on top of Anguissa and Mawson would be incredible.

Babel won't stay, not a chance. He wants to keep his Nerherlands starting spot.
Is it written somewhere that players in the Championship cant play for their national team? It's not like he isn't older and they don't know what he can do.

I think it's more to do with the visibility of the Championship from Babel's perspective and quality of the Championship from Ronald Koeman's perspective. Same reason Diego Rolan was hesitant to go to the Championship two summers ago (however badly that turned out for him). Especially with it being a Euros year Babel will be competing with players like Quincy Promes and Steven Bergwijn who should be playing in the Champions League next season as opposed to the Championship.

It's not like say a Mitrovic, where the only Striker who is as good or better than him for Serbia is Jovic for example, Netherlands have very viable alternatives to Babel who'll take any chance they get to overtake him.

He also signed Mitrovic (as he stated in the interview)

This one info here I heard from the podcast means EVERYTHING Tony said should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Yes, it is true that he signed him because all players signature for commitment have to finally go through him.

Although, Joka did tell the famous story of how he have;

* to get on Snapchat to touch base with Mitro

* worked hard in convincing the board before the signing and

* worked hard with Mitro after the signing to make sure his attitude is kept in check

Full story here >> https://www.friendsoffulham.com/forum/index.php?topic=63694.0

Usually stories can change after someone left an organisation or this world.... nobody refute this story while Joka was still around in Fulham:)

I believe Tony Khan has the ability to source money from Fulham's owner better than other DoF. The ability to source money is Best Prediictor of DoF success. Even if Shahid Khan wasn't the owner, I have little doubt about Tony Khan's ability to source money probable from his family.

So let me try a question. assume TK's dad was broke, i.e. has no vast cash reserve... would TK be a good DoF based on his track record?

Maybe, if Fulham's owner was broke, we would have to employ the cheapest DoF in world football, which is Tony Khan. More seriously of course, Tony Khan is DoF because of his access to his dads money so what. Privellege goes to rich sons that is not a secret, I doubt David Cameron and Boris Johnson would have been Prime Ministers, if their rich parents sent them to the poshiest school in the world (i.e Eton College).

I honestly think (mayb in the minority with this) Le March and Mawson is a good enough CB pairing for promotion - add to that Ream and Odoi as back up and this is fine. These two are especially suited to a return to a possession style aswell as both are more than comfortable on the ball

While we lack Premier League quality players in more defensive positions, we have a tonne of upper championship quality players. We only need to find 6 starters and 3 reserves from these 17 each game: Betts, Fabri, Rodak, Christie, Fossey, Dramah, S.Sess, Odoi, Djola, Mawson, Ream, MLM, Bryan, Edun, Cisse, McDonald and Anguissa. And, frankly against teams like Charlton if we score twice we will probably win with our weakest backline (Rodak, Fossey, S.Sess, Odoi, Edun with Dramah & Djola on bench).

The front needs 5 starters and 4 reserves every game from 12 players: Seri, Jonasen, Riley, Cairney, Kebano, Torres, Kamara, Mitro, Fonte, Atyie, R.Sess and Elliott. That is less depth and we need a strong attack even against the weakest teams. We cannot play Riley, Kebano, Torres, Fonte and Elliott against Charlton and not drop points.

He’s just is in over his head. I run a business, it’s not small and I made it. He runs the jags, our recruitment, and 5 other businesses. He can’t do it. He should do better or hire me. Or you. I know more than he does about this club. I more just wish anyone of us could teach him.

The best in the biz leave their ego at the door Tony Khan.

My point about Grenfell was that the tragedy was caused by the cladding  rather than the faulty refrigerator. If it wasn’t for the cladding then many of the victims would still be alive. Keep the
Just like no one wants to blame an unfortunate fridge malfunction for Grenfell. So they'll try for years to blame the police, fire service, wealthy etc...

You are talking nonsense, please stop out out of respect if anything else.

No. If you've some new information not yet made public then by all means tell us, and I'm happy to listen/debate it. In the meantime I will say what I want about Hillsborough and I may mention Grenfell, which has the parallels to Hillsborough that I mentioned, and as a more recent and local event, is at least as relevant to this forum. If people want to make it political like another poster has done above, that's for the mods to deal with. If they respond by banning all threads about Hillsborough (or Grenfell) that probably wouldn't be such a bad idea. But if I'm forced to read the same old comments about "justice" and witchhunts then I will reply.


You’re not forced to read anything on here. I’m all for NFR subjects but think everyone would benefit from keeping their opinions on politics to themselves, whatever their leanings.

Wouldn't it nice if the fans from both clubs could get together at our respective grounds and have a collection for the MND fund in memory of Mike and all the others suffering from this dreadful condition
+ 1
Hope the club have assisted Chris and Mike’s family for this worthwhile (to put it mildly) request and cause. Is anyone aware of the club being helpful!!!
I decided to contact the club by e-mail earlier today in an effort to draw atention to the request and FoF contributors might wish to be aware of the club's response, which I may say allayed any fears that I may have held and reinforced my faith in our club.
I received a telephone call this afternoon from Carmelo Mifsud, FFC Media Relations Manager, who told me that the club are aware and have been in touch with a member of Mike's family concerning the matter. Unfortunately the club did not have a heavy duty cloth flag but have asked if other item(s) would be acceptable to Mike's family as a token of the club's respect. A sensible and sensitive response in my opinion.
Furthermore the club have offered to mention Mike in a future match programme if, and only if, the family are agreeable.
Something I was unaware of is that the club were indeed aware of Mike and had invited invited him to attend the last away match which Fulham played at the Riverside as the club's guest.
So well done and a sincere thank you to Carmelo and his FFC colleagues. Also from myself I would wish to offer a sincere expression of sympathy to to you Chris and Mike's family.
As a final thought if any supporter in this forum has a suitably sized FFC banner,  or knows someone who has one, if they could arrange to forward it to Chris by Friday that would be great to assist Chris.
