Fulham - Hodgson Let`s Rip!

Fulham - Hodgson Let`s Rip!

After so many great performances there was always going to be a game where the performance didn`t quite reach the expectation levels.

Yesterday, against Wigan Athletic, Fulham struggled to get going and when they left the pitch, 1-0 down, at half time, there were some unsavoury noises coming from the main stand prompting (Sir) Roy Hodgson to have a go, at those fans who were starting to get on his sides back, in his post match press conference.

(Sir) Roy, talking about the barracking, had this to say,

"You hope people will show understanding for the level of difficulty being faced. It`s a vital game for Wigan, they`re faced with a relegation battle, but we`ve dug deep and got another famous victory."

"I mean the more executive types. I`m reminding fans that we will try to give them everything but there`s going to come a time in our last six games when we`re going to disappoint them, because it`s been 53 games and it`ll be 60 before the end of the season."

"I`m afraid that sooner or later there`s going to be a performance like the first half against Wigan which goes on through the ninety minutes."

"It would be nice if people showed some sympathy. I feel my players don`t deserve people shouting `Wake up`"


You`re perfectly right Roy, that is unless anybody wants to offer a different view!

I hope that Roy and the team realise that the fans were booing the referee as the teams went in for half-time and full-time- NOT the team

Exactly! Boos were not directed to the players.. surely the players and Roy could hear the 'You don't know what you're doing', 'The referees a ******', and various other comments clearly directed to the ref?
