Lurking in the bottom three, in the Premier League, is a worrying experience.

Our form, over the first ten games of the Premier League season, leaves a lot of unanswered questions, the prime one being whether Fulham are good enough to retain their Premier League status next season.

Following the latest defeat, the 3-0 loss, at Craven Cottage, at the hands of Bournemouth, we’ve uncovered two damning statistics:

1 – Already, this season, Fulham have conceded 28 goals in the Premier League, the joint-most after 10 games in the division’s history, tying with Barnsley (1997 / 1998) and Southampton (2012 / 2013).

2 – The loss, against Bournemouth, was the fourth consecutive defeat, something that has not happened since August 2014, when Fulham were in the Championship.

Those facts do not augur well for the remainder of the season, it could be a long, bleak winter!

Do you believe Fulham have what it takes to remain in the Premier League?

  • Sadly, as a long standing FFC supporter, I have to say that without a change of manager in my opinion we will be relegated.
    If the coach will or cannot change his tactics then we desperately need to replace him with someone like David Moyes who will get the basics introduced.
    I think if we wait until January it will be too late as there are no teams in the league who I have any confidence in us being able to beat without a large slice of luck

  • What I think is a real shame as Ive said before..we’ve spent 50m on midfielders and we have frozen out one of the best young players in the country in Matt O’Riley.. As a scout you look at stats as well as performances..In PL2 he is top in key passes ( a huge measurement of effectiveness) passes completed and chances created in what is a very weak U23 team..in the friendlies he has been involved in with the first team he has been probably the best midfielder let alone youth player on the pitch..yet hes frozen out of first team and do we honestly think we would have any less points if he played..plus we would have increased his value to the 10’s of millions and he cost us nothing..judging by the scouts watching him week in week out who are raving about him he will get snapped up as it appears we don’t want him…another example of how this fulham team has lost its identity and why our really talented academey players walk away… there is something strange in this and Im not sure why we have done but it sure isnt working and judging by the rumours of disharmony it would appear a new approach and youth wouldn’t do any harm..
