The appointment of Martin Jol appears to have gone down well with two former players of ours.
Chris Coleman, who as well as playing for us also went on to cut his managerial teeth with us, thinks Jol is the ideal appointment, commenting to the media,
"Jols a very good manager who`s proved himself in the Premier League with Tottenham, and I think his personality will suit the club."
"He will be a good appointment for Fulham, as he`ll be shrewd in the transfer market and they need to invest a little bit in the team."
"They might need to change a couple of positions and freshen things up but Martin knows what the Premier League is like and how to play the game with the media, as well as the chairman - he`s been there and done it."
Whereas Tony Gale, who after quitting playing has gone on to carve out a career as a TV pundit, offers his thoughts on the promptness of the appointment, remarking,
"It has been done quickly, which was very important."
"Now Fulham can really prepare and have a good pre-season. If they had delayed another month or so, then everything would have of out of sync."
"Fulham might not have got off to the start that everyone is anticipating after the way they finished last season."
"What Fulham need now is stability and I hope Jol is different and can stay on for three or four years."
"He has been given an opportunity at a good club where everything is in place - certainly behind the scenes."
"And if they add a couple of more players to the squad, then they could be an outside bet for a top-six finish."
Now that would be what I call progress!
