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

Chaos Reigns at Craven Cottage

I`m in shock this morning!

I`d heard the rumours doing the rounds that Rene Meulensteen`s position, in charge of the first team, was in danger but I didn`t really believe, after encouraging performances against Manchester United and Liverpool that he`d be kind of axed.

I say kind of axed because Rene is still employed by the club but will be working under our new manager Felix Magath, the former Bayern Munich boss.

Now quite whether that is acceptable to the Dutchman or not remains to be seen, I suspect that he`ll be pushed towards the door sometime in the next 72 hours.

But whilst accepting that results suggest a second change, this season, was needed I`m stunned at the timing of it.

Magath takes charge, having been given an eighteen month contract, knowing he is expected to keep the club in the Premier League but with a squad of players he cannot change, courtesy of the transfer window being shut, would it not have been better to orchestrate the change earlier?

Further confusion reigns with the insinuation that Fulham were always intent on employing a new manager, even when Rene was give the role but without the grand title, which beggars belief that it took so long to do so.

Chaos is the word that springs to mind and the whole situation, in my opinion, makes Fulham Football Club look amateurish!
