Fulham boss Jol shrugs off jeers after West Brom draw

Fulham boss Martin Jol shrugged off calls for his dismissal after their 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

The draw prompted a vocal minority of Fulham fans to call for Jol to be relieved of his duties at the final whistle.

"If we would have been bottom of the league I would have understood it," Jol said. "But we are 12th in the league now ad we were a bit unfortunate.

"We should have had six points, so that is a bit disappointing that people boo.

"I always say to the players as well, it is very hard to fight expectations and expectations can make you very unhappy.

"It is the same with women as well. If you expect too much of them, you could wake up in the morning with a big shock.

"If you don't expect a lot of things... I think we are 12th in the league so for me it is not a big problem.

"It is a bit disappointing that there are people that probably think we should be (doing a lot better)."
