‘Bring back Slav’, ‘Very poor’ – These Fulham fans not pleased after cup exit
Fulham’s Carabao Cup campaign is already at an end after the Whites were knocked out by Southampton last night at Craven Cottage.
Scott Parker made nine changes for his side’s first game in the competition this season, though despite dominating the possession against their Premier League opponents, they were eventually beaten by a Michael Obafemi strike – leaving fans unimpressed with the team’s performance.
Parker admitted following the game that giving young players a runout was perhaps the most pleasing aspect of the night – but some fans certainly did not see it that way, with some even calling for the manager’s head.
There seems to be a frustration amongst some parts of the fanbase that Fulham were not able to kickstart a cup run, with the team left to concentrate on the league for the remainder of the calendar year.
And with some yearning for the return of former boss Slavisa Jokanovic, it could be fair to say that last night’s display has not gone down too well with these supporters:
Can you call it a campaign when you play the reserves and go out in the first game

Oh dear. Here we go again. The future’s bright but the present’s one disaster after another. Bring back Slav.

Very poor showing. Lost count of how many times Kamara lost the ball. Christie seems to have lost all confidence going forward, just plays the ball backwards. Youngsters did alright, hopefully get more game time
