With a little over three weeks to go before Fulham travel to Barnsley in their opening Championship league match, there seems to be little news of incoming players needed to strengthen the squad. In contrast, there have been many players released or returned to their clubs following loan deals.

The other stories constantly in the media are getting rather boring. The seemingly imminent departure of Ryan Sessegnon, with Tottenham being the most mentioned in the running to acquire his services. They are well known for dragging their heals to get a deal done for the lowest price possible.

What makes matters worse for Fulham is their apparent interest in signing Ryan’s twin brother Steven. This would be a very bad move for the Cottagers, as Steven could possibly have a good chance of regular first team action in the Championship.

The other likely players that Fulham will lose before the start of the new season are; Seri, Elliott and Kamara back out on loan. Then there is Anguissa, who I believe could be an influence in our midfield.

So, should we not bring in any new recruits very soon, this could possibly be our first-team sheet against Barnsley on 3rd August;

Team: Bettinelli, Bryan, Mawson, Ream (or Odoi), Christie, Johansen, McDonald, Cairney, Anguissa (or S.Sessegnon), Mitrovic, Ayite

Subs: Rodak, Le Marchand, O’Riley, De La Torre, Cisse, Kebano, Fonte

Is this a strong enough squad to be title contenders? What do you think?

  • I feel like there is no structure in midfield with those players, id keep pretty much the same squad from promotion season with a few tweks, these players know each other, know how they need/like to play and know what they need to do in the championship to win games and to get out of the league. Just play the Slav way.

    Bett, Christie – Mawson – Ream (Odoi) – Bryan, Johansen – McDonald – Cairney, Kamara (or New Signing) – Mitro – Ayite (or New Signing).

    Subs: Fabri (if he can speak English now), Odoi, Le Marchand, Kebano, Seri (if he stays, or Cisse), Anguissa, Rui Fonte.

  • Awfull team selection , Betts, Ream, Ayite, Le Marchand can all still go. Not good enough to have a place in the first team for sure !

  • I am a Fulham fan of long standing and I have no issue with no signing yet because if you had any real knowledge about FFC then you’d know they do their business quietly and only when the feel the time is right also the fact Mitro has signed a new contract and is happy is better than signing a third rate striker COYW

  • I’m also a Fulham fan of long standing (1963) but regretfully can’t agree with what seems to be the tacit approval on the part of KJS. What he says is true, but that is very much the worry. That particular idea has been shown up as flawed and the events of this time last year demonstrate IMHO that the ‘old ways’ have degenerated into a rather clueless lack of strategy. Anyone who has coached any team sport at any level understands that fielding 7 newbies in a team of 11 will not work for a significant time, no matter how good they are as individuals. Or, in the case of those we shovelled in last year, how unsuited they were to the Premier League. I would argue for a slower approach, building from basics and -heaven forbid!- getting promoted in two seasons!
