Looking for a Positive!
Martin Jol looked a little bemused sat on the bench yesterday lunchtime.
Whether it was the fact Fulham were being turned over by Wes Ham or the fact that he`d lost two of his best players on transfer deadline day, is hard to say.
But, after the 3-0 defeat, Jol spoke about the sudden changes to his squad and the performance of one player yesterday, remarking to the press hacks,
"Dembele? I really felt he would have stayed with us at Fulham, because £15 million is a big clause."
"ButTottenham, they paid up and they always do that from my time at White Hart Lane. It made life miserable for me."
"I tried everything in the transfer window but we missed out on a couple of player son Friday and, in the end, we have to be happy that Berbatov is here and Rodallega and Petric."
"The only positive here was to see Berbatov again and to see his class and quality. I have missed it."
"Berbatov bought other players into play and that is his talent. Hopefully, with Bryan Ruiz available for the next match we should be a bit more positive."
I hope so because we`ve now lost three on the bounce and that is not an ideal start to the season.
