As we head off to Anfield, to take on high-flying Liverpool, only a matter of a week after being crushed by Manchester United, there`s the distinct possibility that come Saturday tea-time, Fulham could be in the bottom three.

If that is the case then it`ll be a worrying scenario as we prepare for yet another, ludicrous, international break.

However, Martin Jol who you`d expect to be feeling the pressure seems remarkably relaxed about the whole thing and the Dutchman has his own views on the definition of pressure, when it comes to the Premier League.

Speaking to the media, ahead of the daunting trip to Anfield, Jol is quoted as having remarked,

“I don`t think you are under pressure against Liverpool or Manchester United.”

“You are under pressure in your home games against teams who should lose points against you.”

“We will have points on the board. There will always be four or five teams not as good as us, that is why I am positive.”

If we`re looking at there only being four or five teams worse than us, this season, it doesn`t say much for our hopes of a mid-table finish does it!

Which begs me to ask the question – are we on the slippery slope?
