I have seen very few ref performances worse than that. Taking all other decisions aside, the failure to give a penalty for the foul on Kebano was laughable.

Nonetheless, the ref dismal performance pales into insignificance vs Scott Parkers team selection, tactics, positional decisions and subs.

Against a back drop of a few decent results I have been adamant that we were lucky. Sorry but this team is a long way short of the team we got promoted with. That is not to say the squad is worse, it’s just a case of poor tactics and a real lack of desire.

We are so unbalanced and far from a team !!! Today we had SJ busting a gut, Carvalio showing effort and great skill, Cairney not at his best but still better than most on the pitch.

Sadly we have a back 4 that are relegation material. Where do I start ? Joe Bryan has neither the ability or the desire to be in a Fulham shirt. I am sick to death of his “head down” crosses that lead to nothing. Tim Ream is a good footballer but in the division below. Mawson is another who should be plying his trade at a much lower level. I give some sympathy to Odoi, who is a good squad player and not without ability. He is a CB and should be used as such.

Parker should never have got the job but his lacklustre approach is mirrored on the pitch. Add to that his perplexing decision to keep playing Onomah (one of the laziest and technically indifferent players to ever wear a Fulham shirt) and you have real problems.

I am not a fan of the “crazy" Kamara but i know he is unpredictable and hard working so to see him waiting for 70 mins to replace Onomah is an insult to any paying fan.

Throw in the sub decision that sees christie replacing Odoi in the same RB position where we are chasing the match and my head begins to spin.

I don't care what the points total is. I don't care what some fans say on this board. I am telling you, we have a severely unbalanced team being led by a manager who is well out of his depth.

We have
Cairney,
SJ ( can't believe I'm saying that but it's where we have got to)
Cavaliro
Mitro
Arta (when fit)
GK (who looks a find)
The rest are the calibre of bottom 6 teams.

In conclusion, we are never top 2. We may limp into playoffs but I wouldn't want to get promoted with this team. I have seen a far better team get hammered in the prem and I can't face that again.

The championship has at least 7 managers better than ours. With our resources we deserve better. Any more time under Scott Parker is time wasted !!!

I dont agree with all of your points. Odoi is not a CB, though he covered there well. However I do agree with a lot of your conclusions. We are not good enough and even if we scrape promotion it won't end well. We have an awful manager situation in that he should never have been appointed in the first place but hes not doing poorly enough to warrant the sack. We have left it too late and replacing him will only lead to more instability. Do we keep with him and hope an inexperienced manager comes good, or do we write off the season and plan for the next one? What a nightmare.

Get a grip mate. We lost our first game after a run of 4 wins. Who do you think you support? The invincible side of the championship.

Go and have a lie down and find your special sock.

Another reactionary post which doesnt deserve a reply. Some of your comments are pathetic quite frankly.

Sorry BBK but have you been to the last 4 games ? Are you a season ticket holder ?
Biggest wage bill in the division - thumped at home by Hull. Defeats to Bristol city and notts forest. Draws Vs wba and Charlton.
This is crap, end of.
I want passion and organisation. Neither of which is on display right now !!!

Not a reactionary post. I can show posts since Onomah debut Vs Saints making it clear that he was well short. I have said for some time now that things are not right.
Sadly for you, you will wait until the situation is untenable to put your neck on the block....

Ononomah  has been struggling but actually worked hard today and covered a lot of ground . Not great on the bal lbut he put a shift in. His best game so far I would say. Hes not going to be first choice but we had  3central midfielders missing ,so SP did not have a lot to choose from or Onomah would not have started. as for your other comments well its obvious that you dont have agreat understanding of the game. Sorry but, lucky in the last four games ? I rest my case.

Agree totally the crap posted in this thread is laughable and that was the worst refereeing performance I have seen in 50 years
