    Like the thread regarding Bus's long may public transport discussions continue. I digress. This morning a very strange feeling came over me in that i felt like I was young again. The excitement of who we have in the next round is an emotion I have'nt felt in many many years.Almost since the days of walking down to the station to pick up the Evening News/Standard. Plus having watched the Hull game-who/what are we?? We took 'em to Sketchleys!!! Still believe a playoff spot is in the cards playing as we do.......

  • Cracking bus routes. -- Spozzie, 10:07:23 01/30/17 Mon
    Saw on another board discussion about favourite bus routes and it peaked my interest.

    Fave route as a kid was the 22 what a ride Putney Common, Parsons Green, WBR, Sloan Sq, Knightsbridge,Hyde Park Corner,Piccadilly what an absolute adventure.

    Also enjoyed the 85 loved the start to end ride Putney Bridge to Kingston something about settling in your seat knowing you would be there at the end.

    Worst..the bastard 72 was late for work almost everyday traveling up to Hammersmith and then Shepherd Bush and even late home. Bastard bus.

  • Finally back in Melbourne -- 321p, 13:04:02 12/02/16 Fri
    Quite a party after the Huddersfield game... :)

    It was my first game since the Juve game and considering some of the dross that I sat up and watched at 2am while in Oz, was a nice return.

    Good beers in the Durrell pre-match, nice walk to the ground... what a wonderful sight when you turn the corner and see the cottage!!!

    Sat and watched with some great mates and my brother in the JH. Did our best to get the singing going, but to be honest, the Fulham side did that with an outstanding performance. Aluko was MoM for me, summed up by the effort he put in for the Piazon goal.

    More beers post match and great company.

    The sort of day that reminded you why you supported the whites.

  • My Team -- Sir [Brian OUT] Bazil, 22:54:56 11/28/16 Mon
    The last two or three years would have seen us fail miserably on this past saturday.Had Wednesday had a bit of luck AND a more skillful finisher they could have been 3 up by half time. The fact remains this team/squad are a different animal and personally I believe SJ still has not achieved his ideal starting 11. Naturally being the Fulham i love the ball will drop when we least expect it and it will all end in tears however until such time I shall continue in blind faith to support My Team and hope for the best while expecting the worst. I still believe we have a playoff squad and with the right tweaking automatic promotion.Yes.....I am on mind altering drugs.........

  • Odd That..... -- Sir [Brian OUT] Bazil, 13:04:06 11/03/16 Thu
    The last time I saw us play 'Uddersfield was back in the dark gloomy days abd it was oop North. Talk about dark and gloomy weather wise add to that a driving rain. On the terraces you could see what looked like mineshafts in the surrounding hills....or am I just waxing poetic??Miserable journey up ...we got spanked 0-5...even more miserable journey home. Of course being Fulham supporters having misery piled onto us by our beloved club is nothing unusual its in our DNA.So yesterday's result was particularly satisfying for me.Having watched the whole 90 minutes it appeared as if the game was in slow motion?? Regardless: Brilliant result and hopefully our Exile gathering on friday will witness a positive outcome also as there should be at least 8 or 10 of us.Maybe it's the club that have caused Riley to be permanently miserable and anti-social? Maybe it's the club that has caused him to assault catatonic geriatric females? Who knows?? Remind me to ask him this coming friday. BTW-any of you statistics heads out there know when that game [0-5] at 'Uddersfield was???

    It should'nt really come as a surprise to any of us the outpouring of love and support for any of us Exiles going through rough times. The mere fact that some of us still get together yearly after some 16? years and shoot the shit and enjoy each others company [except for a certain miserable bastard] and watch TT "Do his Bollocks" speaks volumes. On the West Coast there will be a gathering of the brave few for the Pikeys game on the fourth.......and it's at times like this I appreciate being a Fulham supporter. Like our group gatherings it's a labour of bloody LOVE!!!
    However when the chips are down we all have certain methods we use to deal with our pains,trials and tribulations. For me it is knowing I will always have that useless decrepit,necro loving,geriatric molesting miserable Lipstick/Limousine Liberal anti-social BASTARD Riley to coat off on a regular basis. Followed closely by the young,totally devoid of any historical references upon which to base his ridiculous political opinions,oxygen thieving,lazy,out of work Nonce Jack.Poor poor ReneE!!!! I love you all [except Riley] and i'll be up to have dinner with you and your's this weekend Jack?? COYW......F**K the Scum & The Bush pigs!

    The same week you lost your Dad I lost a girlfriend of 20 years and my Mum. I dont say this to steal your thunder but to let you know that I am grieving and understand where you are coming from. I had several occasions to meet your wife and kids before our games back home and so i'm speaking from a very personal angle here. Having raised my daughter alone from junior high to when she left for college I played both Mum and Dad.That is now your role. It is not an easy task but you must/will find a way.One thing I learned is that our kids cannot understand nor like when we,as parents,show weakness. Grieve but keep your chin held high mate. Much love........

    So, been in London for the week for Dad's Funeral & Memorial; he passed away on Labour Day after a long battle with lymphoma.

    I helped carry his coffin into the Crematorium, with one of Nick's Fulham shirts inside with him.

    Difficult week, but ultimately a good one; lots of good memories, family times & kind words from people I've not seen in years.

    Anyway, off to the Cottage in a few; time to smash a few past Bristol City & break out of this slump.

    Interesting to see another Matt on TIFF going to his first match after his Dad died recently too today.

    RIP Dad !!

  • Prince Buster -- Sir [Brian OUT] Bazil, 11:13:52 09/16/16 Fri
    So I'm driving home from a lovely brunch in Laguna Beach. Minding my own business and barely audible through a PBS radio station I'm listening to a broad London accent [circa 1968?}introduce a certain Prince buster. He played "Ethiopia" and "Madness" plus the usual well known hits like "Al Capone"....etc....etc. I was lucky in one way growing up with much older brother's one of whom was a MOD another was an original london Skinhead [Keith & Texas Tom's era's]. So from the age of 9 and 10yrs old I was introduced to Ska...Buebeat and reggae. The concert this station was broadcasting live from could have been one of many old london Clubs..."Lacy Lady" in Hackney Marshes? "Room at the Top" in Ilford? "Streatham Locarno"? "Hammersmith Palais"?.....or a whole host of London clubs/Disco's of that era. Bloody marvelous rewind to my young year's. Even at this old age I still consider this REAL music along with soul & R&B. Blues is a very very close second.

    If the reports/rumours are true it would appear that we are dealing in "Sabermetrics". My fellow Exiles who,like my lovely self,are Baseball fans will be familiar with this term. Billy Bean anyone? The Oakland A's?? Circa 2002/03/04. He brought in a whole new system which now several teams in MLB use and was a very different approach to selecting player's while cutting the payroll dramatically. Look it up-it's quite interesting. I have'nt read it in 10 years so cannot quite remember how long it took the A's to produce a team to challenge the big spender's or if the effect was immediate? As I recall it frustrated the hell out of the team's manager as he was almost powerless to choose whom he wanted.

  • Fulham 1 - Geordies 0 -- Bastard, 12:37:17 08/12/16 Fri
    Back in Blighty, last minute flight due to continued & major decline in the health of the Old Man (& 70 yr FFC-er).

    Decided to take a break from the miserable surroundings of the NHS @ Barnet Hospital (how does anyone ever get mentally strong enough to get out of these places ffs ?!) & head to SW6 for a Friday night. Spoke to the ticket office Friday morning & told too late to book over the phone or on-line, but plenty of singles left......gotta get there in person......

    After a drive through N, NW & W London, get to CC @ 4 something only to be told all sold out ! Fuk, what to do ? I know, head to The Durrell & see what's what.

    Get there, grab a pint, bump into Ollie, Jan, their boys & Clarkie; explain my predicament & within a few mins, Ollie has me sorted out !!

    Thanks again to Ollie & your boy, Ben; really appreciated your help & pleased to be your Grand Daughter for a night........!!!!!

    Thanks also to Jan for some thoughtful words regarding Dad's situation.

    So onto Bloomers Bar for a beer, meet back with Clarkie chasing some (more) skirt, then onto the ground.

    Place is packed, atmosphere great, like the new-old days (!!), seat in H2, towards the back - great view.

    Match was better than could be expected - heard all this crap on Talk Shite (it really is) driving up about how NUFC will walk this division, win by 15pts, win every game, all the bollox you could imagine. Still there was genuine trepardation prior to the match - could we hold them to a point ?

    First half fairly even (couple of good penalty shouts for both), until Matt Smith - nicely done !!

    Second half electric, attacking Hammy End; atmosphere picking up as Sun went down. Geordies surprisingly quite from where I was - think they believed their own hype & couldn't believe what they were seeing. By now, I'd put down the programme & had stopped checking numbers with names !!!

    Not too many real dodgy moments & we could/should have scored a second; both again having penalty shouts - the one in front of us on Aluko by Hanley from Smith's header back as clear as you like).

    Final whistle : "we are top the league, say we are top the league !"

    So, 3 pts, clean sheet & a well executed game plan by committed players for cared - how long have we waited of for one of these & glad to experience it.

    Keeper looks good, though not much to do
    Defenders a good group : Odoi looked really good, one particularly impressive piece of skill in the second half would be on all news reports if pulled off by Ronaldo ! Center backs great, Malone's service after getting in good positions awful.
    Midfield promising : lots of driving runs at pace, keeping NUFC on back foot & uncomfortable
    Smith scored.

    Well done Slav, well done boys, well done fans, well done Ollie.

    Back to reality & Barnet NHS again now.

    WE ARE TOP THE LEAGUE !

  • What a Disgrace -- dodger, 17:56:04 06/28/16 Tue
    When Roy took over, I thought it was a good move as his methods had made unfancied teams difficult to beat and over-achievers. Realistically, we don't have world-class players, so I hoped that he could turn England into a well drilled team as he did with Fulham, Switzerland, Finland, West Brom, etc.

    In most cases teams start slow and get better as the tournament progresses. I knew we were in trouble when after the Wales game, Sturridge said we played well and at HT they were confident the goals would come, and Rooney after the Slovakia game "All we could be accused of from a critical point of view was that we didn't take our chances." Really? England got worse wit every game and you can argue that the best football was played in the first half v Russia and nothing after.

    Against Iceland, the team looked very un-Hodgson-like. Lack of shape, no discipline, players not seeming to know where they were supposed to be playing. The line-ups were a mystery. Again, one of Hodgson's trademarks is to keep the same team and if you remember at Fulham rarely used subs. They were a number of strange decisions. Why was Sterling playing when he clearly had no confidence after bad performances and rightly being dropped? Why did we play with 3 strikers and two out of position? Why was our big centre forward taking corners and free kicks, especially after they either didn't get past the first man or sailed over everyone for a goal kick? Why didn't Rashford come on earlier for Rooney, who was having a 'mare? Why wasn't Barkley used when the game was crying out for someone to run at the opposition? I guess the questions go on and on.

    The whole team seemed to lack ideas. What summed it up was when we got a free kick just inside their half and we passed it sideways and backwards, and after 5 passes we ended up in the same place. Overall, we were out played, outfought, and Iceland could have scored a few more. A sad day and a disgraceful performance.

    Hope Vegas was great, really sorry to miss it just too much to deal with this Summer.
    For anyone interested my son's game on Wednesday at 7.30 Central time is the featured game for the Development Academy Playoffs that day and will be streamed live on US Soccer you Tube Page.
    ussoccerda.com/2016-feature-games
    He will be the goalie for the Houston Dynamo U17/18 versus the Seattle Sounders U17/18.
    If you see an orange flag waved in the crowd that will be me.

    Regardless, Zimmermann's demonstrated himself to be a particularly despicable scum bag post-event.

    Anyway & in the words of the inimitable Keithy-baby, it's only 21 sleeps until Vegas !!

    What are our arrival times/hotels ?

    I land at 1pm, staying at Linq w/the fat seal clubber - fukkin get in !!!

    Outside of Euro matches/lines/hookers/relentless craps (you know who), what else do we want to get up to ?

  • Mathematically safe -- Brian [Stato], 14:57:50 04/20/16 Wed
    If MK Dons and Charlton lose one more game, and we win one more game, we're mathematically safe from relegation for another season. I think that's reason enough for me to smile.

    Right, that's that out of the way for another 12 months then. Back to being miserable...

  • Vegas -- dodger, 21:09:52 04/10/16 Sun
    I want to firm up the weekend for Vegas. From Keith's previous post it seems most people can make either weekend. My preference is the first weekend, June 11, here's why. We can see the England v Russia game on Saturday at a reasonable time, as well as the Welsh and Irish.

    The other option is to go the weekend of June 25th. If England win their group all good, as we play on Saturday, if we are runners up, we don't play until Monday lunchtime. If we get through as best 3rd place team, we'd play 10:00am Saturday morning. To be sure, it would mean staying over until Tuesday or getting a flight out Monday night.

    So, unless some people definitely can't make the first week, I suggest we lock it in. Also, I'd like to watch a few games at Pete Rose's new sports bar. It next to Planet Hollywood.

  • Relegation Battles 'R' Us -- Brian (Miserable etc), 00:58:25 04/03/16 Sun
    Except in the old days, we used to win them... However, the optimist in me notes that Hodgson's reign began with a similarly unpromising lurch towards relegation, then when we were at rock bottom the recovery began, we pulled off the Great Escape, consolidated during the following season and then we had the impossible fairy-tale journey to the Europa Final, where we beat the absolute best in Europe and came within minutes of realising the unimaginable.

    Jokanovic's record proves him to be a good lower division manager, there's no reason he can't achieve a similar transformation as Hodgson, perhaps not as extraordinary; but similarly to Sir Woy he's inherited a high quality but chronically under-performing squad that he first has to organise and motivate consistently. The improvement is slow in coming but it didn't happen immediately with Hodgson either and it began with and was defined by, that incredible escape from relegation, when the bookies were already paying out on us being down. After that even the most jaded and cynical of supporters (ie all the Exiles) began to Believe, and that belief was the foundation of our subsequent rise to the giddy pinnacle - from where we immediately threw ourselves off of course, and just to make sure we fell far enough and stay rooted to the bottom, we tied an anvil to ourselves named Felix.

    My point is though, that we finally have a decent manager, we've always had a decent squad, something's still not gelling, but that doesn't mean we're doomed (yet). We can still go down if we throw in some seriously bad luck along with our wretchedly bad form, but our survival is still completely up to us - including a gigantic game against the Mighty MK Dons (how quickly it came to that), and let's face it, if a Fulham team fighting for their lives can't get 3 points against 'THE' MK Dons, we don't deserve to survive, and we should shame-facedly hand our higher status to the likes of Wigan...or Burton (for fuck's sake, when did that happen?! That we're vying for league status on an equal footing with Burton Albion!).

  • Expectations.............High or Low? -- Wilkkkee, 23:52:36 12/30/15 Wed
    Well it is finally nice and releif that we have hired a "Coach/Manager". We came up with a good performance on Tuesday to defeat Rotherham, it seems we had the right players and formation for that match. Not sure if SJ had any input at all for that match but the main thing was that we picked up the three points. I am sure that SJ has studied video and spoken to many people at the club including the players and knows who he wants in the lineup on Saturday. He may or may not get it right in his first match, but hopefully many of you on this forum will give him a chance and not expect immediate results. It will take time and lets find the players that want to wear the shirt and work hard to be successful. At best I think we will be midtable by the end of the season as I do feel we have a good enough squad to avoid relegation. We do have a few players that just seem to be along for the ride, SJ needs to find them out, motivate them or move them out............end of. Not sure if Moussa was injured or just dropped on Tuesday..........but Cauley MUST start at the weekend. He is a hungry player and should be rewarded for a very good performance and of course two well taken goals. Lets all be positive and don't call for SJ's head if we don't win on the weekend, lets just look to see if there is some improvement and fight amongst the players.

Yeah-we all won a bit but he obviously used his techy ability to outdo us.

  • Oh Barry Barry Hayles -- Brian (TMB50MN), 14:30:19 09/25/15 Fri
    'I'll keep playing until my phone stops'

    Barry Hayles will be 44 when the 2016 FA Cup final takes place on 21 May, but Chesham United's former Premier League striker has no plans to retire.
    Hayles, who played three seasons in the top flight with Fulham, scoring 13 times in 75 appearances, is showing no sign of slowing down after joining the 13th club of his career in the summer.
    "A few of the boys tell me I'll still be playing at 50," joked Hayles, ahead of Chesham's home tie with Aylesbury.

    "Seriously, I will keep on playing until my phone stops ringing."
    Hayles's enthusiasm for the game - he made his debut for Stevenage Borough, a non-League team at the time, in 1994 - is as strong as it was when he was scoring against Chelsea and Tottenham.
    The 2002 FA Cup semi-finalist played for Truro City last season, making 550-mile round trips from his London home to the Cornwall-based club for games.
    Hayles is player-coach at Buckinghamshire-based Chesham, who play in the Southern League Premier Division.
    Having served under ex-England boss Kevin Keegan and Wales manager Chris Coleman during his professional playing days, Hayles is keen to embark on a managerial career.
    "I started my playing career in non-league and worked my way up. I want to work my way up the coaching ladder too," he added.
    Chesham manager Andy Leese said: "Barry is incredibly fit and his appetite for the game is phenomenal.
    "He might be 43 but he can still out-run players a lot younger than him."

  • Blackburn -- Brian (TMB50MN), 10:35:20 09/24/15 Thu
    Despite the misery of the 4am kick-off, the hassle of the travel, the total lack of sleep and the ill-advised consumption of booze, never mind the terror of 12 hours in 'Bazza World', it was great to finally see a live league game and be able to assess this current squad.

    2 things are clear - we're great going forward; in the other direction, not so much. While we defend well in an individual sense, ie make well-timed tackles, win plenty of balls in the air, pass the ball with skill and confidence from the back, as a unit we're flawed, we back off too much, defend too deep, the defensive midfield is either non-existent or somehow bypassed. The opposition are constantly allowed into crossing and shooting positions before a serious challenge is put in. Blackburn must have had 10 good chances in and around the box that only didn't result in goals because of a combination of poor finishing, great keeping, blind luck and in one case an apparently blind linesman. A better team than Blackburn will murder us. It'll be a great game, but we'll end up losing by a tennis score (6-3).

    I love the fact that we get forward so quickly and in numbers but why don't we shut the door behind us? Why are we always wide open? Our forwards pressurise their defenders in possession well enough, but once it's out of their back 4 they can move the ball to the edge of our box unhindered, so that virtually every opposition attack results in a shot on goal or a dangerous cross into the area, or both. To me if they get a shot off from 15-20 yards or a cross in from the by-line, the defence has already failed. It's all end-to-end stuff - where's the midfield battle we used to see?

    I still fancy us to be in or around the play-off positions come May, but I can't see us getting beyond the first round, and God help us if we did. A PL standard strike force (even a shit one) would score goals for fun against us.

    Shouldn't we just get rid of Kit now, surely he us just a dead man walking. The players signed and (hopefully) to be signed are Riggs decisions and kit has no input or say in who comes in.

    1 point out of a possible 6 and probably 1 out of 9 after the Hull game. Really what have we got to lose by appointing or at least trying someone else until a permanent new manager can be recruited.

    It just seems to be the same old same old for the last 30 or more months, defeat, struggle and basically shit football and entertainment.

    I hope those who were bored of mid table Premier League football and yearned for the fun of the Championship are happy with what they are getting.

    What was your first reaction when you heard there was going to be a movie remake of Dad's Army? Whatever you thought, the first poster for the new film has some important advice: Don't Panic.

    The poster takes inspiration from Corporal Jones's famous catchphrase, and also features the key cast set to recreate one of Britain's best-loved comedies.

    The new film, starring Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring and Bill Nighy as Sergeant Wilson, will be in cinemas on 5th February 2016.

    Also poking their heads into the new poster are Danny Mays as Private Walker (far left), Harry Potter's Michael Gambon as Private Godfrey (second from left), The Inbetweeners' Blake Harrison as Private Pike (third from left), Tom Courtenay as Corporal Jones (second from right) and Bill Paterson as Private Fraser (far right).

    Catherine Zeta-Jones also stars as journalist Rose Winters, who arrives in Walmington-on-Sea to profile the 'brave' Home Guard keeping Great Britain safe.

    Ian Lavender, the original Private Pike, is set to play a cameo role in the new film, and co-writer Jimmy Perry acts as executive producer.

    Sherlock's Mark Gatiss, Last Tango in Halifax's Sarah Lancashire and Gavin & Stacey's Alison Steadman are also set to appear in the film, directed by St Trinians' Oliver Parker and adapted by Mr Bean's Holiday screenwriter Hamish McColl.

    The film is set in 1944; the Allies are in the final months of planning before D-Day when a mysterious radio signal from Walmington-on-Sea to Berlin puts the whole operation at risk. Is there a spy in the Home Guard's midst?

  • An Excellent weekend already -- Sir [Brian OUT] Bazil, 19:04:24 08/09/15 Sun
    While I appear to be the only Exile that Fahkin HATES the Bloo Filth up the road AND the Bush Pigs [maybe with the exception of a certain miserable bastard 50 miles north] MY weekend was made today. Like many born and bred Londoners,as much as I pray to a non-existant God,would love to see the Scum lose regularly and often. However , being held to a draw at home is a result-add to that a Bush Pig loss!!!....and we DO NOT LOSE!!!....is my fellow Transgender Ladyboy Exiles...A BRILLIANT WEEKEND!!!....COYW!!!!

  • How to Beat the Japs -- Coach dodger, 10:04:35 07/01/15 Wed
    I reckon the Japs are technically better than us and probably fitter. If we try and match them passing as the Aussies did, we're going to lose by 3. The way to beat them is to go back to old long ball. Their tallest defender is around 5'7" the rest are midgets. We need to miss out the midfield. Either play a long ball up to our forwards or play it wide and get some crosses in. We've already seen virtually all the goalies are vampires. Let's give their defenders a good battering. We've got some players that are good in the air, let's capitalize on every free kick and corner.

    I mentioned on Facebook that the Aussies got the tactics all wrong. In the second half they had two forwards that were six footers, yet I can only remember one header on target. If we try and play the same ways as the Aussies, the Japs will just pass around us. If we can get a goal late in the second half we've got a chance.

    For those of you who did'nt bother to watch our Ladies yesterday you missed one hell of a game. I've watched them play numerous times although nowhere near as many as the Yank Ladies and my respect for our girls has grown immeasurably. The passion and skill in that first 45 was the best I have seen. So it's onward and upward to next monday. Such a pleasure to watch football played by people at a high level just for the LOVE of the game.......

  • Womens World Cup -- Sir [Brian OUT] Bazil, 10:21:36 06/11/15 Thu
    I will not apologize to anyone for being a fan of Women's football [Sackuurr]. Many moon's ago I coached High School girls football and even then the girl's knew there was no future in it on a professional level [not just because of my abysmal coaching] so they played for the love and passion of the game. Their mum's were incerdibly supportive and i never lacked for volunteer's.However. Once again the Yanks have shot themselves in the foot with their awful commentators. As Shortstack mentioned with "Idiot boy Tommy Smyth" calling the Tinker v England game the Yanks refuse to use people with knowledge and understanding of the game. With the exception of the Ladies who do the colour commentary [former amateur/pro players] the goys are ...as usual...watching a different game then us and missing 85% of the clever stuff going on.....bloody frustrating for those of us who know the game. The Krauts & the Norskas were clinical against inferior opposition and I'm currently watching the Nigerians lose to the SVenskas. Not for lack of effort mind you but the Beauties from Scandinavia are also known for their clinical and methodical gameplay......USA later today. I expect a victory over the Convicts and will be watching our "girls" manana with one eye.......

  • Re Keith and my posts on Kit -- FulhamStu, 04:05:58 05/22/15 Fri
    Hi Keith, just seen you post re Kit, lets have a chat about it on here.

    I suggest that Kit should be replaced as he lacks tactical ability, he seems unable to motivate, I would suggest he is less likely to be able to attract good players that a more recognised or smarter manager which brings me onto my last point which is that I think Kit is not the sharpest pencil in the pack.

    You on the other hand, think it is best to keep Kit as another management change would be a risk.

    Have I got that right ?

    Anyway - let me continue, surely mate, keeping Kit is in itself a massive risk. Our parachaute payment will only last a few more years and is already reducing, within FFP we need to maximise the effect of that big advantage. Add to that, the other relegated clubs from now on will have more money within FFP (other than QPR), so giving Kit longer for me is a greater risk than replacing him now.

    What I will totally agree with is that any new manager is some sort of risk, so getting the right guy is critical. Looking back, I thought Keegan would do well, I thought Tigana would do well, not sure about Roy but never was happy with Jol. Always thought Wilkins was useless, never wanted Bracewell, no idea about Magath etc. So more often than most, I could tell who would work. Surely Rigg has enough knowledge and ability to make a good choice.

    Anyway - over to you lot ! Stu.

  • The wonder of makeup. -- Spozzie, 21:05:58 05/20/15 Wed
    Let's not forget the wonder and power of makeup, it has the ability to transform the female from a bow wow to a bow chick a wow wow.

    So when selecting any potentionial WWC hottest let's look past the makeup, it's a scientific fact that makeup can make anyone look good just ask Sir Bazil.

    Maybe any selections should be based on natural beauty and "on field" look, size of knockers and curvature of the arse. Let's take the moral high ground her and look at what the birds be given by nature not max factor or rimel.

    Let's take up the feminist baton and look for cracking looking birds with a good rack, pert arses and passable boats that we can perv over and for once not set back the feminist movement.

    My lords ladies and gentlemen I give you an example of what the power of makeup can do.

    So think before you trawl the Internet for WWC hotties, let's ensure that Susan B Anthony and Michelle "lick her" Akers did not die in vain.

  • Let's see who's craziest... -- Brian [OUT], 00:02:04 05/10/15 Sun
    Alright, we've somehow survived this season - mainly due to the awfulness of our relegation rivals. But Kit deserves some credit at least for instilling some belief in a squad with shattered morale who thanks to some of the worst management decisions ever seen at Fulham (and that's saying something) had forgotten everything they'd ever known about kicking a ball in the right direction; but perhaps given the raw talent available, he probably could've done better; but not much, ie we could've finished 9th or 10th instead of 16th or 17th. We're 25 points off even the play-off places, no manager in the world could've made up that gap this season, but a better manager would certainly have tightened up the defence - our goals against record is absymal, if not for Blackpool, judged on that criteria along we'd be rock-bottom by some way. It seems to me that is obviously the area that needs most attention, puzzling given that Kit was not only a great defender (and goal scorer of course) but he played alongside some even better ones.

    But that's the past - what about the future? Without any real evidence, I reckon we'll turn things around next season - nobody can now have any illusions about just how tough a division this is, a lot of the kids have been blooded and the Fancy Dans in the side have been given a brutal baptism as to the quality, fitness and guts required to make an impact at this lower level. We'll get rid of a few passengers and misfits, and hopefully get in 2 or 3 replacements to fill the obvious gaps. I can't see Kit getting the boot, unless we start next season as badly as we started this one, and that's unthinkable really.

    Is automatic promotion possible? No, I don't think so, I'm not even sure it's desirable in the long-term (it could spark another overly-ambitious spending spree and a burst of unrealistic optimism), but I'd take it obviously - a play-off spot is definitely within reach, there's no reason we can't do what Brentford/Wolves/Derby did this season, and that's what we should be aiming for.

    So I predict a last day of the season nerve-wracking sixth place finish, followed almost certainly by an anti-climactic first round play-off knockout, probably by a team we beat home and away during the season.

    Nurse! My pills!

  • Sophies Choice -- Sir [Brian OUT] Bazil, 01:39:23 04/17/15 Fri
    There are no two teams/sets of fans I dislike more then the Scum and the Bush Pigs. However if one believes that the Scum have the Premier wrapped up already then the final result was relatively pleasing. With Villa's excellent win yesterday and if Dodger's Burnley can nick a couple of results then the Bush Pigs will be playing us next season.For what it's worth I believe that our absentee owner will indeed put his hand in his pocket and we will challenge for promotion next season. As has been discussed we really have to go up sooner rather then later or it's year's and year's of misery [again].Of course our management issue has to be resolved......COYW

    I know it all worked out in the end, but would Fulham have been better off with Woodrow being sent off? It would have definitely been rescinded as he was nowhere near the incident. And i don't see how the FA could take retrospective against Hutchinson as the ref saw the incident.

    With Woodrow off, Smith would have played up front on his own and we wouldn't have had to disrupt the midfield or defence. And Hutchinson was playing well. I also didn't understand bringing on Hugo and playing him right MF. Surely, with a few minutes left Burn was the obvious player to introduce and pack the defence?
