Being a Fulham fan right now isn’t exactly a bed of roses. The team has won once in the league all season, and twice thrown away leads against beatable opposition in Cardiff and a West Brom side who were at the time, without a win that season. The team looks sluggish going forward, too defensive throughout the game and even though we play deep win, lose or draw – we are still leaking goals every game. So what gives? A section of fans have nailed their colours to the mast be it through their voices or their keyboard that Martin Jol is working on borrowed time, if you read the tabloids and the online sources ‘in the know’.

New FA Chairman Greg Dyke stated in his recent address outlining his vision for English football that ‘if the best of our emerging young players can’t get a game, we have a serious problem’.
