Old Sod's Army-It takes a worried man to.....
« on: June 25, 2021, 08:48:12 AM »
Sing a worried song. When basking in the sunshine and the glory as a member of the white wall I really thought we were getting somewhere. Then our next two attempts in the top flight gave a new meaning to the term 'down in one' and here we are pre-season and silence is not golden. What is really going on with the manager situation? I hope that they have got another one waiting in the wings if SP is going. Just please sort it out and let's get some activity going.  :016:
 

Thank you and goodnight.

This waiting is dreadful, have we ever before been so close to the start of a new season with so much doubt about who is in charge and what our playing staff will look like for the coming season.

No we have not! I do worry about that TK's thinking.  :doh:

I remember that it was during Wimbledon fortnight that they announced Ian Branfoot would be the next Fulham manager. So being late to organise is not new. That is was in the days managers did more than just coach. Reminds me the times when a General Manager and a coach was a better set up than the one we have now.

But does it matter that much at this stage? The players, when they come in will go through the same tedious training schedule whoever is the coach. They wont get to the important bits about tactics and how the coach likes to play and the fact we don't have the players that fit that tactic, until a few weeks time.

I am not worried because the problems are still there and whoever comes in. Whoever gets or doesn't get us promotion. We still have a set up that can't get the players to keep us in the Prem.

Whole thing is being badly managed by the club. Inane stuff on the offal in the absence of anything to say. 

Not sure if the 30th June contract end dates have any bearing on all this silence but we're just becoming a laughing stock.

Not a happy bunny right now   :031:

When will this interminable wait end?

It is difficult to obtain a young dynamic manager with a fabulous pedigree easily.

Bournemouth appear to have managed it!!!

Those were really desperate times.

I think this is par for the course at Fulham since MAF left us.
we have a nice enough owner that has a couldn't really care less attitude to what happens on the field of play
His son, who however you measure it it,is a failure but will not step aside

it is extremely dispiriting because whatever manager is in place for the start of the season cannot hope to build for the future.
