I feel like I’m shouting into the abyss here.
But then again, just take a look at Twitter and I’m sure you’ll see a lot of people saying the same (I won’t link personally because we’re not allowed to post profanity on here, but trust me, just look up ‘Fulham centre-backs’ and you’ll find something).
I’ve been crying out for a centre-back for weeks, but in all honesty, you can make the argument that we’ve needed new ones ever since we got promoted last time around in 2018, but instead we ruined everything and were made to pay the price.
And it’s when our poor record is put out there or the world to see, as journalist James Gray did on Twitter last night, that really puts into perspective of how bad it is for us:
Denis Odoi and Tim Ream started 60 games between them in a defence that conceded 81 goals and got relegated 18 months ago. What on earth made anyone think they should form an important part of this Fulham team? #FFC

How many CBs will we sign next window?
2 or fewer
More than 2
I’ve said before that I don’t blame Scott Parker for what is going on, this all goes on Tony Khan and his recruitment, and he needs to give the boss the tools to make things happen. He’s gone on Twitter to say things are going to change, now it’s time to put things into action.
What about you? Do you think that we’ll be able to get some centre-backs in before the window closes?
