Scott Parker’s season start as Fulham’s young manager should end sooner rather than later.

I am not an advocate of sacking and replacing due to a few losses, but when a boss cannot see that the tactics his instils in his players are not working, he has to have an alternative plan. He has stated previously that his style of play is the right way, and the way forward.

Once again the stats show that the Whites had a huge percentage of possession against Hull City, but we only managed 1 shot on target against Hull’s five. Even with the corner tally of nine to one for Fulham, they could not find the target once.

Parker fielded a side full of attacking options, but other teams know how to approach them, and when to attack. He seems to lack the knowledge of how to change things up. We are lucky that no teams are running away from the rest, and the gap is still reachable. This is why the time is right to bring in a proven manager.

I would however love to see Parker retained as the Assistant to the new gaffer and spend another season or two before he gives managing another shot.

  • I’m not a tactician, but I could set up an average team to rival FFC’s play with a fair chance of beating them. SP MUST realize that he is showing his hand every game, if not I’d like to play him at poker for high stakes. I like him and think he is a good long term manager for Fulham BUT he must have a plan B. if not he’s history.

  • Scott Parker deserves a few more weeks but must get his team selection correct. sorry Betts you are not up to it. Give Steve Sess a run at right back and maybe give AK47 a couple of games. Bobby Reed is not a winger. The defence needs sorting out and it does not have the pace to play a high line. change of tactics is required.maybe we should defend deep and catch other teams on the break.

  • Now is not the time to change the Manager but for the manager to change his tactics. I concur the defence does not have the pace to defend a high line. So if we defend deep we have the pace to attack on the break. Bobby Reed is not a winger. Tom Cairney had a poor game. I would put Rodak back in goal. If Bryan is out through injury then switch Odoi to left back and play Sess at right back. Le Marchant really should not be a considered option. I would like to see AK47 start and De la Torre and Matt Reilly have a place on the bench.

  • Scott Parker must prove he is not stubborn and change the system. The defence proved they can defend deep against Middlesbrough so give that try against Birmingham. There is no pace in the defence and the only two players in that are worth keeping are Tim Ream and Joe Bryan ( if he is fit) The goalkeeper position is a concern I have doubts about Mawson and Le Marchant should go in January. Perhaps try a back 3 of Ream, Mawson and Odoi with Bryan and Sess as wing backs. I think Kamara should be given a start as he has pace and power

  • Get a few bad games and you want to get rid of Parker, your talking rubbish,Yes we have lots of possession but don’t have the luck to go with it

  • What a load of rubbish reality check..few boo boys and you come up with this. If we don’t go up this season so be it. In Scott parker we trust.. I have spoken!

  • We need a keeper who commands goal area and organised the defence. Last was Mark Schwartzer. Hennessy second choice at CP. Plus stop the faffing around in midfield. Less passes backward and side ways. More direct. Play Ivan alongside Mitron in centre. At Stoke 78% possession. Two shots from Joe Bryan.

  • Alfie Mawson and other defenders need to have confidence behind as well as in front. Marchand not a left back. Steven Sessegnon a run at rb. Trust he won’t have his head turned like Ryan. Who like Steed Clint and few others wasting his time at Totti.
