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

Far from ideal preparations?

Have Fulham been disadvantaged by the Europa League qualification this summer? Usually in pre-season the whole squad gets a run-out in numerous friendlies and XI's although it has not really been possible for Martin Jol to do this.

The club have played six European ties, although playing more - and giving others a game - would have been preferable so he knows the club have been slightly 'disadvantaged' this summer: 'we could organise another game for next Tuesday but I think that's a bad idea.

'We have played six games now. Maybe you would prefer to play eight or nine games in the pre-season as some other players didn't play a lot so that is probably a disadvantage, but I am satisfied with the results because we got through to the next round.

'But I cannot be satisfied with the preparation because we only played on a Thursday and you can't just focus on these matches the whole time.

'You have to work on conditioning as well so it's not easy.'

The price you pay for success eh?
