22 Apr 2014 21:55:15
I think Udinese attended not Watford, maybe in a few years lol

22 Apr 2014 22:48:49
Watford are also interested in Simone Zaza from Serie A team Sassuolo. He has been watched on a number of occasions by Gianluca Nani and the talented forward may well be a replacement for Troy Deeney





31 Jan 2014 23:56:12
Ravzan Rat has a medical booked for Monday at Fulham's training ground on Monday, he told supporters as he left the training ground.


14 Feb 2014 19:50:14
What on earth are fulham at, now another manager, they seem to have as many back room staff as players. Just madness

17 Feb 2014 22:08:07
Did the fulham coach and assistant shoot theirselves in the foot seen laughing at the man united game



30 Jan 2014 16:08:14
Hello all,

I was down at Playford Road yesterday and have a link with Portman Road and have heard a few things.

Firstly, Scott Loach did not attend trianing yesterday or today and reports suggesting he is being used in a straight swap deal, potentially for Wayne Hennessey. Wes Foderingham is another name mentioned. Loach reportedly keen for first team football sicne Gerken took the No1 jersey.

The arrival of Frazier Richardson has confirmed that Bramble won't be making a comeback to Portman Road now.

Fulham have pulled out of Tunnicliffe deal which will see the United yougnster remain at Portman Road.

One piece of info I have heard and sounds somewhat exciting is that there was a Spaniard at the ground yesterday. Some people suggesting it's a youngster from Real Madrid B called Christian Benavente. Mick is looking to add some depth to his squad and an attacking threat which this Benavente has.

There is still talk of Doyle and Wickham coming to Portman Road but both seem to have fizzled out due to other clubs offering to-buy deals.

Any more info I hear I'll post.


31 Jan 2014 02:17:35
Wayne Hennessey to sign for Palace, and Scott
Loach could join Orient on Loan.

06 Feb 2014 07:04:19
Foderingham won't go anywhere in the championship to be a reserve Keeper as that's where he was and what he was at Palace before going to Swindon, so highly unlikely.



12 Jan 2014 10:52:59
Fulham to sign Michael Mancienne from Hamburg




10 Jan 2014 17:15:23
Watford have made an approach on fulham a Derek boateng who has not played soo much since joining fulham in the summer.


12 Jan 2014 12:53:11
Facundo P�riz

chinese alan

Will not be joining as Watford will complete the loan signing od George Boateng from Fulhambefore this weekend


Surely you mean Derek Boateng


Yes Derek, but that now won't happen. The player was holding out for better offers.




04 Jan 2014 23:46:57
AFC Wimbledon are weighing up loan targets for both a Central Midfielder and a Centre Back.
West Ham's George Moncur who had a spell at the Dons in 2012, is a possibility for the midfield role. Southampton's Harrison Reed and Brentford's Jake Reeves are also short-term options.
The Dons may be tempted to make a more permanent signing and a move for Steven Gregory could bring him to the club for a third spell.

Recently-injured Kevin Feely has now returned to Charlton and the Dons are considering making loan moves for at least one defender to fill the void.
West Ham's Leo Chambers, Fulham's Josh Passley and Chelsea's George Brady are all on the radar for a short loan spell at the League Two club.


05 Jan 2014 09:28:42
There's no way we will sell Gregory as Peter Taylor is full of praise for him, although some fans don't rate him at all


Don't worry, we don't want Gregs back after he left for a second time. I doubt Moncur or Reeves will be back either.




29 Dec 2013 18:48:52
West Brom's new head coach will be Martin Jol. Deal is in place but not finalised due to him awaiting compensation from Fulham and also Jol stating he needed a break before taking on a new role.
This should take place after Palace F. A cup game. Downing will continue until then. This will have given Jol about a month off by that time.


Wow, how stupid do you have to be to take in a manager who took a team from Europa League standard to relagation standard?


31 Dec 2013 19:11:26
Neil Lennon favourite according to certain bookies



20 Dec 2013 16:51:57
Dempsey having a medical at fulham with a view to 2 month loan.


Still believe



14 Dec 2013 23:19:53
Clint Dempsey has agreed a two-month loan deal to rejoin Fulham in the New Year, according to reports.

The USA international spent five years at Craven Cottage before spending last season with Tottenham Hotspur, but returned to his home country in the summer to play for MLS side the Seattle Sounders.

With the season now over, zapsportz reports that the 30-year-old is on his way back to London after being encouraged to play in Europe during the off-season by national coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

The report goes on to say that Dempsey will link up with the Cottagers, who are currently in the relegation zone, next month.




01 dec 2013 11:22:18
martin jol sacked as fulham manager.
rene meulemsteen is early favourite followed by harry redknapp.

01 Dec 2013 14:19:41
I would like di Matteo.

Rene Meulensteen already was given the job immediately


03 Dec 2013 13:16:49
Di Matteo is currently being paid by Chelsea until July 2014

Won't be going anywhere unless you offer him more than 140k per week,.




20 Nov 2013 17:19:57
Martin Jol has confidence in convincing Kostas Mitroglou to Craven Cottage. With it expected to be Dimitar Berbatov's last season and Fulham, he could attempt to cash in on the Bulgarian in January and pounce upon in-form Greek Mitroglou.

Kostas has the same playing style as Berbatov but with a bit more physicality about him. Martin Jol and Rene Meulensteen are hoping that Mitroglou will be their hub of their attack.

Mousa Dembele will not rejoin Fulham despite rumours suggesting he's unhappy at Spurs. He's interested by a move to Napoli.

FFC also looking to flog Senderos and Riise, Riise for a free, whereas Senderos could notch a fee of £500k.


Was this deal Jol dependent?




03 Sep 2013 20:19:07
stoke set to offer mladen petric premier league lifeline after being released by fulham

Good player - will score goals in the prem if given a chance. Good acquisition for Stoke.

By the way, Stoke will be alright with Hughes, he is a decent manager who knows the game well and is ok tactically - unlike Jol. Hughes had an awful time at QPR for various reasons but still worth a prem team giving him one more chance.

He would of been a perfect signing for us if it were reality. I was hoping we would make a move for him but arnautovic it is. No clue as to why he wasn't utilized by fulham he is full of talent.

To the guy above, he and Berbatov were too similar to play together, it didn't work. He got chances, he didn't take them. I have no doubt he's got a season or two of top quality in him.

10 Sep 2013 12:10:24
He's joining West Ham.



02 Sep 2013 15:58:00
Hot prospect Mesca is poised to join Brentford on loan from Fulham until January. 90% sure that is happening from what I have heard and should be announced tonight and if not then it will happen when the loan window re opens.

Are you sure that wasn't Trotta who isn't a hot prospects!

Brentford will be moving for a loan player when the window re opens. Confirmed by Mark Warburton in his Bees Player interview. Hinted at a Prem or Championship league player.

08 Sep 2013 21:15:18
Brentford looking to sign Carlton cole on free transfer till end of season.

This looks very true and much needed now.

Be surprized if Carlton Cole comes to Brentford last heard he was going back to West Ham, but would love to see him at Brentford.
But don't think so.



02 Sep 2013 12:54:25
Fulham have made a bid for Liam Birdcutt - Kerim Frei going the other way on loan

02 Sep 2013 14:21:15
Frei's in Istanbul, completing a move to Besiktas.

Kerim is NOT joining Besiktas & FFC & Brighton are in talks about the above mentioned swap

All I know is frei tweeted saying he landed in istanbul yesterday. hope he doesn't go permanently!

Yes he's in turkey but that's for international duty



01 Sep 2013 15:54:43
Reading Fc are looking to re-sign Kevin Doyle and Steve Sidwell from Wolves and Fulham

Doubt it very much, under the previous manager maybe but adkins will want to sign his own players.

For god sake can people stop making rumours that we're resigning former stars. They've moved on, so have we and neither of the two are the same as they were with us.

I heard tonight that we have put in a bid the wolves lad who put 3 passed our U21's on Friday don't know his name, he has been on our radar for a couple of years apparently the hole of the prem is after him.

Macca is going nowhere - he's just signed a new deal.

I heard this too, had a look at his contract and he is half way though, Millwall are another contender, his name is Liam McAlinden, 20yrs at the end of the month, very highly rated, Eveton and Liverpool were both reported to be showing an interest last window, The agent I was speaking to saying Wolves keep him locked down as they don't want the same press as the Ismeal £1,000,000 wonder kid.

Contracts don't mean s***, if wolves get an offer they'll sell. Their wage bill is astronomical for a league 1 team with feck all revenue coming in from sky. I'm not saying Macca will leave, but if a sensible offer comes in, Don't be surprised.

02 Sep 2013 14:16:31
Our wages are affordable and get 16 mill this season and 8 the next two seasons off sky



01 Sep 2013 11:35:23
Rumours surfacing that Berbatov might leave Fulham by end of the window, a number of clubs mostly abroad are watching and waiting further news.

Jol's days are numbered at Fulham, even his body language tells you he knows he is not wanted at Fulham, Berbatov does not want to stay without Jol.

Berbatov has one year on contract - if no suitor is found Fulham will try again in January to get Berbatov away. Either way Fulham do not have a long future relationship with either Jol or Berbatov so best to part company as soon as possible.

Fingers crossed. Jol is not wanted.

02 Sep 2013 05:40:37
Agreed. I will drop Jol and Berba off at the airport.



31 Aug 2013 11:18:52
Hey guys I heard from a scout at Fulham that they are interested in Ake from Chelsea, Zaha on loan from Man. Utd and Thomas Ince from Blackpool.
Ince would cost around £7 Million and Ake would cost around £4 Million and Zaha they would probably offer Manchester United £2 Million to loan him.

I wish

No chance of getting Ake. He is the next big thing.

Ince will cost you at least 8 plus add ons.

Chelsea wouldn't sell their best young CB.

Incey's price just doubled after today. Oyston is seeing £ signs lol.



30 Aug 2013 17:29:15
westbrom look to sign kyle naughtan as liam ridgwell moves to fulham

Ridgwell isn't going to Fulham?

31 Aug 2013 11:35:39
4 million for Odemwingie? Don't be silly I'm a Albion fan through and through and if only pay 2 maybe 2.5 million at max. We need to spend and do it quick.

31 Aug 2013 16:27:36
whats the point of pricing Odemwingie out of the market? why pay a guy £50K a week to train only? Get rid and use the money to get players who want to plkay for us even if that means taking a punt on promising lower league players - remember Lambert!

I agree. £4million is ridiculous when we won't even pay £4million for anybody. Loan after loan with no direction. Peace is a money grabbing git who will destroy the club. Pete O is training with reserves on £40k a week! Does not add up

Pearce just go and let's have someone who will take west brom forward

JP will say buy my stake. But put a crazy value on the club because of the cash flow. If he spent and club looked like it would progress. You would get 30,000 in the ground he lives off the club, where are all these fans who were saying in Pearce we trust. Even if he signs 3 by Monday he made a cock up because if he invested earlier we would have beaten Southampton & had more than one chance against the toffees. kul

JP it has backfired on you for spending no money, bottom of the Premiership, no goals scored it looks like we will be in the Championship for 2014-15.
We could have had some good players, but no JP will not free up any money Steve Clarke must be frustrated, all the clubs that came up have spent money, but not the poor club Baggies.

We have basically the same squad as last year - minus Lukaku but plus Vydra & Anelka - I worry about Clark, he rode Roy Hogsons wave for the 1st few months then lost his way - his selection & tactics today v Swansea was puzzling to say the least, NO central midfielders then he bemoans our creativity

01 Sep 2013 21:18:32
The chairman should do the honourable thing and put the club up for sale at a fair price and disappear from whence he came. However before that he should clear out the marketing staff who don't do their jobs and more importantly he should get rid of the coaching staff who are negative and clueless-shane long right wing/ridgewell in general-enough said
Come on mr peace you have taken the club as far as you can-now is the time to go asap and please take clarke with you!

"We have basically the same squad as last year - minus Lukaku but plus Vydra & Anelka - I worry about Clark, he rode Roy Hogsons wave for the 1st few months then lost his way - his selection & tactics today v Swansea was puzzling to say the least, NO central midfielders then he bemoans our creativity"

have to agree

what I would have done is-
when morrison was injured= moved anelka to CAM or CF position (basically deeper) to utilise his attacking strengths and take into account his lack of mobility
then move long to central striker and brought brunt on to Right wing

later on replace long with berahino - guys on form (or was)

i would not have=
took off yacob - he's the anchor man and let michu have clear runs at our defence

took off sinclair - he moans at lack of width then throws on 2 more strikers? as if we weren't congested in midfield enough

£4 mil was the price tag.

gotta say that's a good bit of business for west brom.

now let's sign defo




29 Aug 2013 20:44:48
Fulham have had a bid turned down for jack cork southampton

This one is true. Big offer turned down.

31 Aug 2013 00:31:29
Afraid this isn't true what so ever

31 Aug 2013 01:16:16
£5.5 million offered. Cortese on the back foot thinking if JWP & Wanyama good enough.

It wasn't a big offer it was tiny and it was rejected. Fulham are now planning another bid of about £3mil which again will be turned down. There was talk of Cork leaving for Everton for around £7mil earlier in the summer, his price has not gone down by £4mil.

You have no idea what foot cortese is on!

Jack Cork will not be sold, not before the outcasts like forte and sharp etc.

If he's part of our plans, I'm surprised he wasn't played today against Norwich.
We know Schneiderlin isn't supposed to be well and Wanyama was off of the pace.

MP said "Jack Cork not for sale"

Like every prem league club just keeping every player happy is a difficult job I think it's good saints haven't made wholesale changes, big money signinings don't always bring success.

It's a sad fact of life the players who get a club into the premier league are often moved on, much as I would love jack cork to stay in the end he will want first team football as with Jason puncheon.



29 Aug 2013 16:15:11
Fulham will make a late bid for Yohan Benalouane (Parma) - he can play left side in a centre back pairing. Expect a fee of close to £1m.

Jol has just reported Fulham unlikely to sign Benalouane but will look to sign one more player and that is cover at right back. Jol admitted Fulham were 20th in the league in terms of spending but could still do well.

This sends an appalling message to fans. The new owner has not endeared himself to fans who really needed a marquee signing. That said, along with the views of many other Fulham fans it is unlikely that Jol will be manager for very long and the new boss will be given the war chest. Just hope Fulham have enough in the locker to stay afloat until the new boss arrives. Very tricky times ahead for Fulham.

Khan's doing exactly what MAF done.

He'll continue to stabilize the club and keep us debt free.

That's amazingly good for any chairman.

Fulham are debt free - the new tv deal provides money to bring in top players and a few big deals for smaller clubs.

Fulham have been the weakest spenders despite bringing in a few players. Shrewd business? Not really more like the owner not wanting to give current manager money to spend because he doesn't trust him with the money and wants him out once a new manager can be sorted. Khan wanted to give Jol a chance but he has failed to deliver in pre season and the start of this season (not withstanding poor performances in the last 12 months). Jol would have already been sacked had MAF stayed at the club and Poyet would have been in charge. Takeover has messed things up and does mean this season will be very tricky for Fulham. Just need to see this season out and hope the new owner finds a decent manager and then money will be spent overhauling the squad with younger keener players with a manager who has a strategy and can see it implemented. No-one at fulham is happy with Jol - he knows it and it is reflected in his body language, best for him and Fulham if he goes as soon as possible.



29 Aug 2013 09:00:31
Kerim Frei of Fulham to join Gillingham on loan

Would love this to be true but never going to happen we couldn't afford him

29 Aug 2013 09:54:51
Love this to be true, but he's far to good for us, so not likely to happen



28 Aug 2013 20:03:17
Enoh (Ajax) wants to return to Fulham; Enoh only second or third choice in transfer targets for Fulham.

Crystal Palace keen on Enoh but he really is holding out for Fulham. Ajax want £2m and would be willing to sell. Unless Fulham say they are definitely not interested this one could run until the last day of the window.

Enoh did ok at Fulham last season but would not be disappointed if we missed out on him.

Who are the 1 & 2 choice for the Fulham club Infront of glorious Enoh?

Jol not keen on Enoh - if he was he would have bought him. Additionally, Fulham don't need another player like Enoh already got Parker, Boateng, Sidwell. Jol has other midfield targets these include Chantome, Nainggolen and they are much higher in the pecking order than Enoh. Enoh not wanted by Ajax because he is not that good.

Fulham still interested in Aogo and Schletto. Expect business to be stepped up after Saturday's game.



28 Aug 2013 20:10:24
London clubs Fulham and QPR are battling to sign Bradford City's Nahki Wells after having bids of £4. 45 Million accepted.

PP said no offers and confirmed today that Wells not going anywhere.

Bradford would let him go if that was offered he is a good player but 4.4 million don't think so

Snap their hands off at 4. 4 david viall only cost 5 million

Fulham nor QPR will sign him.

He's staying at Bradford.

Bradford have already said they won't sell, it's too late in the window.

You just keep telling yourself that the rest of us know the reality of football. Naki will no doubt go now whilst his value is at its highest not saying it'll be Qpr or Fulham but be sure Bradford would be looking to sell regardless of silly quotes saying otherwise.

Lets remember he's still on contract and its the clubs decision that he goes and not his and I doubt there is a release clause

Its all about money the bigger or higher placed clubs will always plunder the lower leagues. The truth is Bradford would be pretty much powerless to stop the lad moving if a big enough offer comes in. Its the same for Qpr with Barton and Hoilett nowadays the contracts worth nothing. Problem is if they get unsettled and want out you have to let them go and make sure you can replace the players as best you can



28 Aug 2013 08:35:28
Swindon set to sign free agent Derek Safo Tiekut former Fulham player as they need 1 or 2 more strikers.

Yes this is true my Fulham friend told me this to he is due to sign on friday

This would be The best bit of news all summer, but Can't see it being true

I'm a fulham fan and I've never heard of this bloke.

He's only 18 no experience, need someone who knows the leagues

This rumour has been discredited by Mark Cooper who said he has never heard of him, not true I'm afraid, however a Egypt international and an ex Arsenal youth player are on trial.



27 Aug 2013 10:57:21
It is a rumour that Gus Poyet is being lined up as next Fulham manager. Jol has to improve team performance and win next two home games (WBA, Cardiff City) to keep his job. Berbatov will leave in January if Jol goes or might stay until end of the season.

Might be the best thing for Fulham - clearly Jol and Berbatov have not found a formula that works for the good of the whole team as performances last season and the beginning of this season inc pre season will testify. Home form has been especially dire.

Due to this situation (ie poor trust in Jol's abilities) Fulham are unlikely to do much more business this transfer window - possibly one or two players.

Which would be 8/9 in total, not bad business for a manager supposedly under pressure. he needs the players to gel as a team. he will get till january window at least

Firstly - there is no question whatsoever with Jol's performance last season that he is under extreme pressure.

Secondly - Fulham have got players in because they had to, but the spend has not been big and the shrewd work has been down to Alistair Mcintosh. Stekeelenberg and Parker have been good business. Amoriebieta might be? Basically, players have been brought in to ensure we don't fall too far behind before a new manager takes over. The new manager will work with a decent squad and might be able to play a better tune.

Thirdly - the new owner wants his own choice he will have little loyalty to Jol especially if he sees the team perform so badly at Craven Cottage.

People jump on band wagon geez we were outclassed by arsenal but there a top 4 side give jol a chance. spurs fans felt he was unjustly sacked when he managed them.

Poyet had been lined up to take over at Fulham since April - it will happen eventually

Id rather have lee clarke as manager than gus poyet

To the earlier comment - this goes much, much deeper than just the Arsenal game - there is certainly no jumping on the band wagon.

Just a shame that not all Fulham fans can see the light.

If you need evidence of Jol's incapability - look no further than tonight's game against Burton, Fulham played a strong team against a fourth level team and were lucky to escape with a win on pens. Jol stands on the touchline with the look of someone who hasn't got a clue - no tactical changes, no encouragement, just a dumbfounded stare like a rabbit in the headlights. Fulham have good players so why are they so poor, easy to answer poor manager, poor tactics and an inability to blend a team and to understand tactical nuances during a game. This isn't on the band wagon this happened last season when Jol couldn't cope or deal with losing Dempsey, Dembele and Murphy. (All players brought in by different managers Coleman, Hughes, Sanchez).

And, agreed with earlier comment Poyet or Lee Clark would be a vast improvement on the incredibly overrated Jol.

28 Aug 2013 12:01:17
Alot if teams in the top flight were in trouble last night I went to burton game we need to tweek the finall third. sunderland have brought in a new team and spent millions and they do look average team compared to fulham as fir dempsey he through his toys out the pram and didn't last a season with spurs as he wanted champions league football look where he is now. dumped by spurs playing for seattle. i'm looking at other managers now and pardew. di canio. holloway could all be losing there jobs. Players have a responsability to. mark hughes spends millions and look what happened to qpr and teams will have to balance there books or face a points deduction in the future so having a billionaire as chairmen means nothing.

Everyone on here has got to get off Jol's case because yes we've had a ba result against Arsenal and nearly lost to Burron but he is a good manger and he has done well in the window with 2 or 3 more needed including a middle of midfielder needed as Sidwell isn't good enough He needs money from the Chairman to spen as we've not spent a lot and when you loose Dembele Dempsy and Murphy you are going to be angry as they were quality players can you imagine if we kept them the team we would have today we have a good squad just needs a few more additions to be decent.

Missing the point - concentrate on Fulham - no good looking elsewhere and saying they are no good (disagree re Sunderland, they were far better than us opening day). Fulham are an established prem team so mid table is achievable with the players we have. To safeguard mid table things need to change otherwise last seasons form will continue and we will be in a relegation fight for most of the season.

By the way, the point re Dempsey etc is the fact Jol couldn't adapt or get the new players blending - basically he did quite well with a team that was already in place. Can Jol build a strong new team - this is the big question, evidence so far suggests not.

I agree sidwell not good enough now but last season people were happy with him this shows we have a better squad this year. Also leaving Ruiz on bench for first two games a positive move as he cannot cope with the pace of the prem. again shows a better squad as last season we kept playing him because no other options. Give it time new players need a few games to adapt to new team mates.

Not just the arsenal and biton game we were terrible towards the end of last season and if there had been 3 more games we could definitely of gone down. I hate the negative football jol plus he's always far to defensive. however more than willing to give him until january to turn it around

29 Aug 2013 07:26:56
2 games gone and the knives are out already for jol if fulham win at sunderland and play terrible i'd say great result. when Manchester United play terrible and get a result people say that's a sign of a good team they don't go saying sack the manager lol its a joke!

The fact that he starts damien duff (a player who would struggle to get into most teams in the championship) out of position is an indication of bad tactical foresight. The plays he's brought in this window have all so far (apart from stekelenburg) have looked lack luster. Yes I include scott parker in this bracket, another sideways midfielder who looked miles off the pace against arsenal. If we wanted someone who can receive the ball and pass it back to a defender or across the halfway line, I could step in and do a job for way less than what we're probably paying parker. Lack of ambition in the transfer window has been disappointing. Delighted when we were linked with nathan redmond, he went to norwich. Huddlestone? hull. these are players that are young with something to prove and a bit of fire in their bellys unlike the parkers and boatengs who are past their prime and are looking to make a quick buck. difficult season ahead of us I feel.

Have you read the comments this isn't just about two games - this runs deep on many levels shame you can't see it.

Lots of people with short memories, obviously. It's not because of a couple of bad games. We haven't played will since March. The last few months of last season were awful, and we spent the whole time one win away from relegation. If we hadn't fluked that win at Spurs we'd have gone done. We've been awful for months, how is it people can't see that? Just this term, awful in pre-season (i. e. just about beat low-grade opposition in Costa Rica, drew or lost against anyone decent when we got back), awful against Sunderland and would have lost if they hadn't been so wasteful in front of goal, awful against Arsenal, awful against Burton Albion. We'll lose at Newcastle on Saturday too, and go out of the League cup at home to Everton next month.

Jol has no plan (there is no way he planned to buy Scott Parker, having previously signed Boateng and Kara, Scotty's agent probably just rang him up and said "how about it?"), clearly no clue about players beyond those he's worked with before, and apparently no idea who really belongs in the squad. The ONLY good thing he's done since January is get Sascha Reither on a permanent contract. Kahn clearly doesn't trust him with serious money either. Don't blame him, look at the flop he bought us last time Mo put his hand in his pocket.

Some people need to stop falling back on the year-old "we lost Dempsey and Dembele" excuse and wake up to the serious problems we've currently got.

And missing out on Huddlestone was an absolute relief too. Steve Bruce is my hero for signing him.

Thank goodness there are other Fulham fans that can see the light that Jol is a rabbit in the headlights and if things don't change soon Fulham will have a very dodgy start to the season.

As a Fulham supporter for over half a century you can tell most of the above comments are from numties wearing nappies with a brain scan of half a season.
The manager is good the players are good and the new owner looks good.
Get the team balanced right (and Martin take a tip from me we are not balanced right) we will be brilliant on the day!

I thought this was a transfer rumours page. All I’m reading is one post saying ‘Jol out’, followed by the next saying ‘Jol can stay’. Webmaster: please start a ‘Managers to be sacked’ Rumours page. Keep this for player transfers.

Fulham stepping up there efforts for a creative midfield player, have made enquiries about the availability of Joe Allen, Will Hughes and Ibrahim Affellay

Affellay has just had surgery on a chronic thigh problem and is out for four months so doubt there's any truth in this

Wouldn't class Joe Allen as a creative midfield player. He is more of a "keep the ball moving" player. Yes I know that the other year whilst with Swansea he made the most passes of any European player but the majority were between himself and his defenders. All of England wish we had a truly world class creative midfield player for the national team. The nearest we have is probably Jack Wilshire

Schelotto (Inter Milan) rumoured to have Fulham's interest. Powerful wide player - mixed reviews from Italy about him. Would cost approx £3-4m so well within Fulham's budget.

Crystal Palace also interested.

I have heard this too, however, we will have to compete against some big clubs.

All this crazy paper talk about pardew going to palace, just hope they give hollerway the chance. Must beat Sunderland

Tip to Ian hollerway when he plays Southampton if you win the toss saints always with their team attacking the away supporters end in the first half, choose the other way trust me it works.

What are these last two posts doing on a fulham rumours page?

{Ed003's Note - with Palace being mentioned in the op it would have gone on the Palace page aswell.}

Holloway here;

"Tip to Ian hollerway when he plays Southampton if you win the toss saints always with their team attacking the away supporters end in the first half, choose the other way trust me it works. "

Despite that fact that you can't spell my name I'm going to trust you! I'll be on here after you if it goes wrong, right!

The guys right saints always pick the same end to play from you still need to win the coin toss.

Blimey now apparently wilf zaha bored in Manchester, get him back on loan.

After Chris Baird's release from Fulham the right-back/central-midfielder has been short of any interest but Adkins has offered the Northern Irishman a 3 year deal. With already having plenty of strength in the defensive and midfield area I can't see why Adkins would bring him in.

Fulham are in talks with Calgiari over the transfer of Nainggolan, a Belgian Midfielder who Jol has courted for some time & now the London team looks set to snare the player b4 sep 2nd, the whites also want another striker & are looking at Borriello, Aquafresca, Gilardinio & Rhodes of Blackburn.

Guiseppe Palceco

I'd love Nainggolan. As for another striker, it's likely they'd be 4th choice, and also relies on Hugo Rodallega and John Arne Riise to free up wage space.

I'd love Jordan Rhodes but god knows what he'd cost. Van Nistelrooy in his style of play, not physically talented but somehow scores goes.

Nainggolan? I wish! - a very talented young playmaker, but would probably cost around 15m.

Italian rumour mills and forums are incandescent with Nainggolan transfer news, but yesterday, Cagliari sporting director Nicola Salerno denied the possible sale of their star midfielder, saying ”We have arrived at the start of the league championship with this team. We therefore find it hard to let go of such an important a player with the championship just about to begin

Is he as good as our last Belgian midfielder?


Radha Nainggolan could be an exiting prospect as he brings some more pace to the team alongside Tarrabt and Bent, also he can give us some more creative options to try and get the strikers in on goal. I am disappointed with the strikers linked in this rumour, Gilardino is probably the strongest but I wouldn't even want him in our squad. However Mame Biran Diouf has been linked with us too and the ex united player would be a great addition.

Mame biran diouf was on loan at blackburn and he was useless a few years ago now but he only scored in a cup game I think - played a lot of games and was awful. The other 4 players rumoured are in a different league to him. I wouldn't even want him in the chumpionship

24 Aug 2013 10:45:12
Would love to see Rhodes in but none of these are going to happen. We might get a left back in to replace that crock Richardson and Riise who's thrown the toys out of the cot, but then we will shut up shop.
