He has generally looked an unhappy man all season long and following Fulham’s fifth straight league defeat, comfortably so at the hands of Liverpool last Sunday, the odds have tumbled and speculation has grown that Martin Jol is set to depart Craven Cottage at the end of the season, with Brighton manager Gus Poyet coming in to replace the Dutchman.

The story outlined doubts over Fulham’s summer transfer ambitions to reshape an ageing s...More
The statistics certainly do not make this a successful end to the season for Fulham. After securing their Premier League safety with a 3-2 win over QPR at the beginning of April, the Cottagers have only taken one more point from the five matches they have played since.
