John: We were never going down

Fulham striker Collins John has expressed his confidence in the team by making clear that he never expected his team to be relegated this season.

Despite some terrible form of late, Fulham got stuck in at Craven Cottage on Sunday to beat champions Chelsea 1-0.

The win has dismissed any fears that the Whites will be sc**pping to avoid relegation this season and John believes the result is a much more accurate reflection of what Chris Coleman’s side are capable of.

The win took Fulham 11 points clear of the relegation zone, up to 35 points, and with seven games still to play this season, it is looking much more comfortable for the West Londoners after such inconsistent form in the league.

John said: “We were never going down”, he adamantly declared. “The boys in the dressing room have been annoyed because we’ve not played well in the past and yet we dug in against Chelsea to take the three points.

“It was our best performance of the season team-wise we won against the champions- the best team in the country.

“To beat them 1-0 show what we are capable of.”

Never ever in doubt! The way we've played this season we was bound to pick up points eventually. I expect us to go on a run now and leave them four at the bottom to scrap it out between em.

It is more than fair to say we should never been in a position where we had to worry about fighting to avoid relegation. I am glad that we can now start concentrating on moving up the table, very nice to see a clean sheet on the board as well
Ollie Sheehan
glad we did it, and especially against those arrogant, (wont utter the words here) form down the road.

if you had a defence you would be up there with us, until you do, all hail zat knight for not letting fulham challenge anyone for anything besides relegation
Blackburntillidie
Zat Knight is not the problem. Ok he is soemtimes guilty of errors but i think it wojuld make a big difference t have someone compliment his skills
BeeferFFC
Leave Zat alone. Fulham's defence as a whole is weak, we are an attack-minded side.
Coolio is back
lads, we all knew this was coming. Coleman planned this all season. ok maybe not, but it worked and we deserved the win. proud of ya boys
