Really thought Brentford would have this. Didn’t turn up at all tonight though and got what they deserved.

Benrahma looks like he may lack the mental toughness to get to the top.

Fulham got Scotty Parker.

Let’s compare with media favourite Frank Lampard.

  • Only just sneaks into the playoffs with possibly the strongest team in the Championship.

  • Gets gifted a Leeds bottle job in the semis then sh*ts the bed against Villa. Gets the Chelsea job off the back of one good month.

  • Bottles two more finals.

Then Scott Parker:

  • Thrown in the deep end for one of the worst PL teams of all time after two managers are sacked in a season.
  • Takes a midtable squad comfortably into the playoffs.
  • Puts media favourite Brentford away no bother and actually wins a final.

Great sportsmanship Mitrovic consoling the Brentford keeper.

It is a good gesture but I always wonder does that really help? Like you see a player make a mistake and straight after the final whistle loads of players come over to console him. Does that not just highlight even more you just fecked up?

I didn't even know he was still Fulham manager until a few weeks ago, like I remember him getting the job on like a caretaker role but I assumed at some point he'd have been sacked and replaced. He's done a fairly decent job. It isn't easy to steady the ship when coming down into the championship. Look at Huddersfield or many teams before them. Sunderland even. He's done an excellent job.

Look at the jobs Sol Campbell has had to take versus the ones Lampard has been gifted.

Lampard was much more likeable as a player than he is as a manager somehow too.

Yeah and the squad this year were so one dimensional. Done a crazy job and worked the best out of them.

He seemed to be much more humble as a player. Since he went into management his ego seems to have exploded. You only have to see how he reacted to Sterling's comments to see how he really believes he has earned the right to manage a big club.

Also Parker just became a coach like a year ago? It's really great achievement that Fulham squad was such a waste too many overpaid average players

Listen to Scotty explaining tactics in depth simply and confidently.

80s German pornstar Thomas Frank crying into his oversized tactics board as we speak.

He's about as German as Scott Parker is Scottish. Whatever the porn... How was Scottish porn in the 80s? I envisage Graeme Souness with a dairy cow.
