Fulham sign Porto full-back Rafa Soares on loan

KALAS TO GET NEW EMPLOYER THIS SUMMER

Tomas Kalas is likely to get a new employer this summer as his deal with Chelsea enters its final year.


The 24-year old must decide what next for his career. Either he establishes himself at the club or he goes out in self-development as time waits for no man.

Hull City are reportedly in contact for his services. Standard Sport says the new Hull City coach Leonid Slutsky is hoping to get the Czech international to boost the ranks.

Slavisa Jokanovic wants Fulham to Change their Attitude towards Game

Slavisa Jokanovic reckons that if Fulham doesn’t improve their attitude and start showing more steel and resilience, they should stop dreaming about playing in the top flight the next season because it’s not going to happen.


As per Jokanovic, when he weighs the performance of Fulham with the performance of the no. 1, 2 and 3 sides in the Championship standings, he doesn’t find that the level of the performance of those sides has been significantly higher in comparison to Fulham.

Hull City Test to Provide Indication of Fulham’s Progress, Claims Jokanovic

Fulham take on Hull City in the fourth round of the FA Cup looking to make significant inroads into the domestic cups.


Even though the club’s primary target is to qualify for the play-offs and return to the Premier League, it is becoming increasingly unlikely with each passing week. Fulham are 11th in the table with a five-point deficit over Sheffield Wednesday, who occupy the final play-off spot. Even though there is a huge chunk of the season still left, Fulham have not shown the kind of consistency that is required to put together a play-off challenge.

Jokanovic Unhappy with Lacklustre Performance against Sheffield Wednesday

Fulham managerSlavisa Jokanovic was disappointed with his team’s lacklustre performance in the draw with Sheffield Wednesday.


The London outfit needed a late equaliser in front of their own supporters in order to get at least a point from the game. Sheffield Wednesday came very close to getting a victory at Craven Cottage after having taken the lead in the 10th minute throughForestieri. Since Fulham have been very close to the play-off places this season, manager Jokanovic is very keen on maintaining the momentum. The result is at least positive in the fact that it did not allow the field Wednesday to leapfrog Fulham in the Championship.

FULHAM WINS FIRST GAME SINCE AUGUST

Fulham at last put an end to their win-less run as they won their 12th Championship match with a 4-2 romp at Barnsley, having previously won a match last in August.


Slavisa Jokanovic's men, who were the early-season pacesetters, went six league matches without recording a win, but they put that right in an action-packed game at Oakwell that included three goals in five first-half minutes.

EX-FULHAM BOSS READY FOR FOOTBALL MANAGEMENT

Roy Hodgson believes he’s set to go back into football management if the right club or country comes for his service.


The ex-Fulham and England boss was at the unveiling of the statue for White’s legend, George Cohen on Saturday, and the man, a bare seven years short of the 76-year-old World Cup winner, declares he is not done with football yet, as he's ready to display his coaching capabilities again to help any lucky team triumph.

FULHAM FORCE WIGAN TO GOALLESS DRAW

Fulham continued their sterling form even as they were hosted by Wigan. The visitors have started the new campaign brilliantly, and they maintain the record despite their travels. Wigan Athletic were lucky to avoid another successive defeat in the keenly contested affair.

Fulham enjoyed slightly more football possession, but couldn’t convert the chances to goals. They played better in the first half with Neekens Kebano’s effort coming close. Wigan’s Yanic Wildschut drove the ball in and found Michael Jacobs but he couldn’t hit goal. The visitor’s shot stopper David Button had to dig deep to save an effort from Nick Powell.
