Another Managerial Change At Fulham

On Friday, 14th. February, 2014, Fulham FC announced the appointment of Felix Magath as First Team Manager at the Club, and with immediate effect.Magath had both successful playing and managerial careers, including scoring the winning goal for Hamburger SV in the 1983 European Cup Final (versus Juventus) and winning the Bundesliga title thrice (twice with Bayern Muenchen and once with VfL Wolfsburg).

Renowned (or notorious, depending on your point of view) for his intensive use of old-fashioned and uncompromising methods for improving the endurance and physical fitness of his players, Magath has a well-earned reputation in the Bundesliga for hauling clubs from the relegation mire.

On the evening of Tuesday, 18th. February, 2014, the Club announced officially the appointments of Tomas Oral as First Team Coach and Werner Leuthard as Conditioning Coach, both reporting to new First Team Manager Felix Magath, effective immediately. Simultaneously, it was stated that René Meulensteen, Alan Curbishley, Ray Wilkins, Mick Priest and Jonathan Hill had departed Fulham FC.

With only a dozen matches remaining in the current season and a crucial game due this Saturday against West Bromwich Albion FC, all Trust members and fans of Fulham FC are urged to give their full support to the team in the fight to remain in the Premier League.

Latest Edition From Ashwater Press

Fulham Strikers: a celebration of post-war goalscoring

Published in November, 2013, the book details one hundred ‘number 9s’, centre forwards and principal Fulham goal-scorers from the Second World War until the end of last season, in an eight-decade sequence - ‘From Beddy to Berbatov’. For all of the principal seventy-five players, it covers their youth career, careers at previous clubs, but concentrates on their time at Craven Cottage. Also included are their playing careers after leaving Fulham, including non-league and, if known, what they did after leaving the game. Their history includes clubs abroad and their international careers. Their Fulham period details highlights, hat-tricks and special matches and anecdotal material, and also analyses what kind of player he was, his attributes and style. Each player’s playing statistics are given and is illustrated with Ken Coton/Ashwater pictures augmented by some newspaper and private images. The book is completed by a number of intriguing statistical tables, facts and figures.

The book is a quality limited edition hardback publication, A4 size (12” x 8.5”), with 272 pages and, in full colour, it contains well over 250 pictures, a number of which were yet to been published.
