Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson feels Fulham players simply weren't good enough following the sacking of Martin Jol.

Lawrenson wrote in the Mirror: "The chief executive at Fulham, Alistair Mackintosh, is a good operator, but the whole business around Jol has been strange to say the least.

"Fans and neutrals were thinking, 'What's going on here, then?' while the players must have been thinking, 'Is Jol not good enough to do the job by himself?'

"I still think Jol could get another job. Generally, his record has been very good. Sometimes you just go to a club and it doesn't work for whatever reason. He'll be back.

"However, if Fulham ship out some of their dead wood in January, you wouldn't be able to guarantee they would be back."
