World Cup Draw

STEFANO URSOLINI: Itay are a solid team but I cannot see us getting beyond the semi-finals as Argentina, Brazil, Germany and Spain are stronger. We do not have a lot of cover in defence and Pirlo is injured right now. Without him (and at 35 can he last in the  heat?) we lack creativity in [...]

The Tanner Report

I have watched Fulham relegated five times and I predict this season will be my sixth. I, the Tannic Oracle, foresee this after a much better performance against Spurs last night. We had far more zip and zest, we had width, we had better defensive organisation but we lost. We lost against a [...]

Fiorentina 4 Verona 3

Its a cliche that Italian football is boring. It was once in the cynical days of catennaccio but now you have as much chance of watching an exciting game in the serie a as in the Premier league. More so if you follow Fiorentina. Last  night at the eccentric hour for us of 7 we played Hellas [...]

The Tanner Report/Goodbye and Good Riddance

Jol is dead. long live Rene. The blood letting was conducted in a civilised if insincere fashion. Chairman Khan thanked Jol for his contribution, Jol praised Fulham as a club, coach Meulensteen who for the second time in 3 months finds himself after 2 weeks replacing the manager says it was not [...]

Jol must go

What do I find the worst thing about our form? Not that we have 32 points all year, lost our 6 last games, have to endure Jol’s self serving post match interviews, of our last 10 home games, we have lost 8 of them, that we play a game without creating a chance, our performances are gutless [...]

Passions spill over at the Emirates

Before I fell from the fifth floor of Danny Murphy’s mock Tudor mansion in Worcester Park, I used to do the windows of a delightful Arsenal fanatic Nigel whose family live off Wimbledon Common. As often as not we would repair to the Fox and Goose for a few ales and discuss the travails of our [...]

The Tanner Report

We now have lost 4 out of our 6 home games. Time was when we lost that number all season. Jol will no doubt have his excuses accept responsibility and in the same breath blame us fans for booing Bryan Ruiz and not getting behind the team. Fulham’s record is marginally better than Shahid [...]

England 0 Chile 2

One of the best experts on South American football is your Tim Vickery. As Fiorentina have so many South American players we are regularly in contact. Tim is a great admirer of Chilean football for its fluidity. So it was no surprise to either of us that they beat England comfortably . At [...]

The Tanner Report

The appointment of Rene Meulensteen will come as a great source of relief. For 2 years Fulham have been drifting but not under any real danger of relegation. This year the form has been little short of a relegation team. You never know as a supporter what goes on in the training ground or in the [...]

FILE ON FIORENTINA

I was in London for a couple of days meeting up with the Executives of BT sport. Britain is one of the most insular of soccer nations with little coverage of the European Leagues so I question whether BT bagging of the Champions and Europa League rights will be the same driver as the Premier [...]
