Fulham boss Jol happy to maintain playing style

Fulham boss Martin Jol is eager to maintain their passing values.

An advocate of attractive football, over the years Jol has won many admirers for his approach and philosophy - a philosophy he will continue to promote.

"I like to play nice, attacking football - that has always been my way and I will be no different at Fulham," explained Jol to fulhamfc.com. "It's the type of football fans appreciate and I think that's important. It's the way the game should be played.

"They haven't conceded too many goals in the last few seasons, so defensively we are very solid. But perhaps we can be a bit more creative in the final third. We certainly have the players to make a difference.

"There is a good squad of players here; with experience and young talent. We have a good mix, but hopefully we will add to that. There's a lot of football to be played next season so there will be chances to show what they can do.

"This is such a strong league, the first target is always to secure your Premier League status, after that, then we can start thinking about a place in the top 10. For me, that is a very realistic goal and one that I believe we are capable of achieving.

"We also want to do well in the Cups. Fulham last got to the FA Cup Final in 1975 so it would be nice to replicate that again - that's something we want. There's a lot to play for."
