Jol: I checked online Fulham forums before taking job

"I had a good look at the forums,'' reflected Jol, "and the fans expect us to do well but they don't expect us to be in the Champions League.''

Fulham fans are known to be amongst the more level-headed terrace inhabitants but Jol clearly felt it wise to check.
