Fulham fans back Magath change

The Fulham Supporters' Trust were surprised by the decision to replace Rene Meulensteen with Felix Magath.

Dan Crawford, of the FST, said fans were also 'surprised' by the decision to sack Meulensteen, although results may have justified the change.

"I was very surprised," he said.

"We had all read that he might have two games to save his job but you just assumed that the performances and fight they showed would have been enough.

"We haven't won a league game since January 1, we are out of FA Cup, bottom of the league and running out of time.

"The defending has been abysmal for most of the season, you hope that someone who is a disciplinarian will come in and get things right, he won't take any prisoners and has virtually no margin for error.

"We are in the last chance saloon and everyone recognises that, it slaps a little bit of desperation but that is par for the course given the situation we are in."
