I’m surprised so many are confident Fulham are down. Newcastle could easily not pick up a point until the last 2 of the season. 
 

Then it’s down to who’s got the bottle

True, but Fulham don't look like winning any games either. They've just played 3 teams who are gonna finish mid table, who have nothing to play for, and lost all 3. Fulhams next two games are against Arsenal and Chelsea, plus they've got Man United away.

 

Hopefully there's still something to play for when Newcastle and Fulham meet in the last game of the season.

To me it's all down to form when it matters. Fulham have played some good football but got little to show for it. However, right now they seem to be running out of steam and confidence. Newcastle on the other hand are picking up and I can see them getting over the line before the last game.

Newcastle will pick up the odd point here and there to keep them up. Probably manage to sneak a draw against us :dry:

 

With Fulham having a tough few games and the fact they've now played 2 games more, it's going to be a long shot.

 

Might keep Bruce in a job but with fans hopefully back it's going to be hard to ignore.

Kane wants out if spurs don't get CL according to the athletic. Huge for them 

Athletic is usually pretty on the money, that's big news. Would take a huge sum to get him away though. 

But can't say I blame him, Spurs have been there abouts and fallen at the final hurdle a lot. Maybe is time for a new challenge.

I actually can’t see Spurs making the Champions League this season, this may come back to bite me, but I really don’t think they are consistent enough.

I could see both Liverpool and Chelsea putting a run of wind together, I just can’t see Spurs doing that.

On Kane, he may want out, I’m not sure who would buy him though, Man Utd are the only side I think are stupid enough to pay Spurs asking price for a 28 year old who does tend to have have a period of time on the injury table every season.

He’s a quality player, but no resale value. 
For Man Utd, he’s no guarantee to win trophies so not sure it would be what he wants.

Levy said earlier in the week he can go for 150m. No one is going to pay that for a 28 year old. 

 

Obviously if Kane pushes for a move then the price will come down but they will still want north of 100m

Cant see him going due to the price. Only teams that could potentially do it are man u or psg under poch, especially if mbappe goes.

Kane is stuck, just like Zaha has been at Palace. This is the perils of signing huge long term deals and approaching mid to late 20's when your side has stagnated. Spurs aren't going to accept 70-80m which is the most anyone will pay, they'd want £150m and that's never ever happening so Harry my old son, you're trapped pal. Unlucky.

Exactly that, there's no way he's leaving for another year or two at least. And by that point you'd think he won't be able to play as big of a role due to those ankles.

Kane could well be seen by Utd as the missing piece. They may see his potential goals as their route back to dominance for a few years. They might be right. 
 

Don’t see anyone paying what Levy wants. With his injury issues and drop off in form I can’t see him going for more than £100 million and I’m not sure even Utd would pay that. They might, but I doubt it. Perhaps he’s had the nod from Poch. PSG could splash the cash, but he’s no Vardy and I doubt he’ll still be banging them in 6 years down the line. 
 

Just so Spursey this. Bottled leaving earlier and now probably missed the boat.

Fulham's image has really just benefitted from not being the shambles they were last time. I think they should be staying up from the position they got themselves into but no points from the last three is a terrible run.

Now FFP is dust, Man City could do worse than paying £100m for Kane to replace Aguero. They'll get a good 5-6 seasons out of him. 

 

Of course they could just spend that on Haaland and be set for the next 15 years.

Issue with Haaland is his agent being an absolute tosser.

I didn’t know until one of the podcasts brought it up but apparently Kane has only done the minimum amount of media required. Almost like he doesn’t want himself quoted

No points from those last 3 is a shocking return after doing so well to overhaul the points gulf with impressive wins over Everton and Liverpool. Fulham have largely played some very good football and in many matches been unlucky not to get anything from said matches, shades of us circa 2015. Unfortunately, these past few matches they've not played as well as they have previously and have failed miserably to capitalise on the that.

 

It's not impossible to survive now, but they've made it harder for themselves. Which I'm personally miserable about because now I have a miserable other half, and more than likely I'm going to be stuck watching the bloody Championship next season :thumbdown:

When we had our great escape run, we started with three mid-table teams in West Ham, West Brom and Swansea and we managed 9 points and 7 goals. Fulham managed 0 points and 2 goals. These types of matches can go both ways.

He's always been too good for Spurs...  Took him long enough to realise it though :P :ph34r:
