A Dressing Room Full of Sadness

A Dressing Room Full of Sadness

I doubt whether we`ll see John Arne Riise in a Fulham shirt again, apart from possibly the last game of the season next weekend.

Riise will, in our opinion, be one of those moved on come the end of the season.

But even though Riise was probably aware of the fact his Fulham days were numbered, the pain of being relegated was there for all to see, after the Stoke game, with Riise remarking to the media,

"There are a lot of sad players in that dressing room. There are a lot of tears."

"My whole career I have thought about winning titles. This is a different feeling - it is like hitting a brick wall. I never thought for one second we would go down."


Perhaps that was the problem!

The supporters could see all this coming from quite a distance but that belief it couldn`t happen to us didn`t seem to shake the side out of what was descending into a chaotic, almost surreal situation as we plummeted towards the relegation trap-door with barely a whimper!
