At a time whereby we`ve given ourselves a remarkable chance to escape relegation, one of those people responsible for placing us in such dire circumstances has spoken out.
Lawrie Sanchez, who was ousted in order to stabilise the sinking ship, has been talking to the media about his dismissal and bemoaning the fact all is not as it seems, here`s what he had to say,
"I managed Fulham for 17 games but, having spent another £10 million and with Brian McBride and Jimmy Bullard back in the team, they have one point more than I secured in fewer games."
"Now they`re out of the bottom three for the first time since I was there. Roy Hodgson said its taken four months to know what his team was. Well I was only in charge for four months and it`s my team playing now."
"People think that when you`ve been sacked you`re paid off and that everything is all right but it doesn`t work like that."
"One day a club sacks you and then they say - take us to court and sue us, see if you can get any money."
"They know that after a certain amount of time managers who don`t have so many resources will have to give in and settle for a figure that is nowhere near what the contract is worth."
"I`ve not been paid a penny since I left Fulham. My health-care has been cut off and I`ve had to drag the club into the manager`s arbitration tribunal."
"That`s demeaning for me and should be demeaning for the club."
Has anyone got any sympathy for Lawrie?
