The Cottagers are without a win since the opening day of the Premier League season and are currently sitting third from bottom after a weekend home loss to Cardiff.

A section of fans barracked Jol following their latest defeat, and the Dutchman shouldered the responsibility for the loss.

However, Ruiz insists that the players are not looking for Jol to depart.

"We are all in it together. He's having a difficult time because everybody blames him for the results," the Costa Rica international told the Fulham Chronicle.

"But we're a team and we can and will change things.

"He means a lot to me because he gave me the opportunity to come here.

"He likes to talk to the players and to motivate us, especially when we have a difficult situation. It's a difficult situation, but the season is still young.

"Hopefully we will get a good result next week.

"It's going to be a difficult game. We know we need to win."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
