'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fulham - (Sir) Roy Explains Why!

Having crashed out of the FA Cup, in midweek, to Spurs and with a vital Europa League fixture, against Wolfsburg, coming up this week, did we really expect anything else?

(Sir) Roy was perfectly within his rights to rest a few players, our Premier League status is safe and we have a bigger fish t fry, one of the European variety.

Therefore, in his after-match interview, Roy had no qualms about resting key individuals and instead turned the focus on to how we`ve done so well with such a hectic schedule, when he remarked,

"I have no concerns about managers saying we played a lesser side."

"Most managers should say how well we did to keep playing the same players."

"We had seven games in twenty-one days in February. We had eight games in twenty-four days in March and we have another seven or eight in twenty-five days coming up in April. I don`t think it`s fair for anyone to suggest we can do that with eleven players."

"The players who have come into the team are more than capable of playing at this level."

"I had confidence in the players that I put in the team - they need more football."


Besides, it doesn`t seem to matter who we field in an away Premier League fixture, we invariably, for some strange reason, fail to get a result!

I understand it, but I was not happy about it. I may feel better on Thursday if we beat Wolfsburg.

it'd be such a shame not to get through to the next round to keep things ticking over!

we need to finish top 10... i think we're very capable of doing that and competing in the europa league... i guess friday morning we'll have a better idea of what's in store... higher place in the table means more money, and it's all about the money, isn't it? and if it had to be any team, and if it had to be any player, it just had to be bullard and hull... i don't begrudge the guy, except DON'T SCORE AGAINST FULHAM! it just had to be him...
