  1. Interesting that most people are going for the passionate, hard workers who gave their all. Agree with your choices and I reckon I go back a little further so I’ll add (amongst others named elsewhere): Dave Smith, David Moyes, Nicky Morgan, Glyn Riley, Carl Shutt, Marvin Elliott, Flint, Shaun Taylor, Dele Adebola, Basso, Ayling, Wilbraham, Glenn “Psycho“ Humphries and more than any Bobby Hutchinson. I could have named pretty much all of the double team. At certain times, each of those were the sort of players I enjoyed watching. Who is today’s version? I’m not sure there is one.... Korey Smith and Nathan Baker sort of get there but not really. Ohio for a couple of those characters playing tomorrow!
  2. The Huddersfield game was at the end of October - so that’s 2 good home performances in over 4 months at Ashton Gate? Probably the busiest 4 months of the season. That’s why some people are fed up, there were 8 other home games in that time. 20% of home games being decent performances doesn’t really get people excited.
  3. Well, in a league of 24, top of the table is position 1. Mid table is position 12. We are half way between the two (nearly) so we’re by definition at the upper end of mid table. We’re actually closer position-wise to 12th than top. Similarly we were closer to the bottom than the middle when LJ arrived. There’s no rocket science, just facts as is the fact, you point out, that we could still make top 6. That would be tangible progress.
  4. But he’s always said he has the final say on signings. So they’re all his signings. If that’s not true or no longer true he needs to say it... say it straight... no cryptic clues or buzz words. I think if he’s not in control of the ins and outs, I’d understand him a little better.
  5. How many windows has he had to fast track us.... the club recently got the bunting out for his forth anniversary... so that’s 8 windows? He’s taken us from lower mid to upper mid table. Entertainment non-existent at home games. Millions spent. Tons of signings and tons jettisoned.
  6. Competing with JK Rowling more like!
  7. Spot on. Hes’s given himself the luxury of a massive squad and the option to continually chop and change. a smaller squad would mean he’d have to get the best from what he has, keep them on side. That’s coaching and man-management...
  8. I see what you’re saying. It makes sense and is logical. The problem is twofold: 1. You’ve not made use of the company tombola. 2. You’ve just not over-thought things enough or built a team focused on Fulham’s strengths. .....aside from that I’m sure you’re spot-on!!!!
  9. Cough is a great shout. cant imagine he’d be a yes man. Not unless something went dramatically wrong in the old genes!
  10. I didn’t mean it like that Dave.... but bloody hell!!!!
  11. All good suggestions. Robins is interesting, I was thinking this yesterday.... ex-City and seems a bit of a Lansdown type.
  12. Agree.... it needs a quick shot in the arm and purposeful senses of direction. Warnock is the man but there are others...
  13. Another similarity, for me, is the rotating transfers, lots of ins and outs but most are just like for like, not improving us and not creating stability. There’s plenty of evidence: The fact he’s had to go back to Paterson who he bombed out and has already dropped all his January signings (within a month!) AND the Kasey Palmer thing.... I could go on....
  14. Agreed. If anything this season we have gone backwards in terms of shape, style, stability of selection (I believe some would call that “identity”). The fact the head coach has to talk Every two or three weeks, about re-finding our identity every says it all. There’ll be an argument that 7th is progress - but there’s no prize for seventh and no guarantee that 6th or better will be achieved next year (if only football were that simple!).
  15. Does make you wonder - are we 7th in spite of all the tinkering? Where might we be with a settled way of playing/line-up?
