Turning up at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, I kind of hoped that our penultimate home match of the season would be a memorable one.

In one way it turned out to be just that with it being confirmed, after the final whistle`s had gone around the country, Fulham, despite being 4th from bottom of the Championship, were mathematically sae from relegation, courtesy of our West London neighbours beating MK Dons and thereby relegating the Buckinghamshire club.

But, as far as the performance goes, it was a far from memorable one with Nottingham Forest becoming the latest side to score with ease.

After the game Slavisa Jokanovic had his say on events on the pitch, remarking to the media,

‘We don’t show quality with the ball or without the ball. We make chances but generally we were very, very soft as a team.

‘This is a habit for us, it is not strange giving a penalty, it is a bad habit.

‘We give them so much presence, we tried in the second half to play in a different way but during the game we scored and made chances but right now we are far off how I want my team playing.’


How many penalties is that we`ve given away this season, twelve?

As for the victorious manager, Paul Williams, he had this to say,

‘We’ve had some really good performances in recent weeks, I know results haven’t shown it, but now we need to focus and to fight for the last two games.

‘I am tasked with taking the side to the end of the season and that is what I am concentrating on. I want to give the fans, who were fantastic today, a good end to the season.

‘The players have been fantastic, we have made little changes to players’ positions. I have a philosophy and thankfully it is beginning to pay off.

‘It is all credit to every single player out there today, they deserved that performance.’


Forest were far the better side and for some, nay most, the end of this season can`t come quick enough!
