Brede Hangeland: Looking for Fulham to pick up points

Martin Jol's side currently sit outside the drop zone on goal difference after taking just seven points from their opening seven fixtures.

But it could have been worse, with the Cottagers picking up their first win in the 1-0 home success over Stoke last time, and Hangeland is desperate for more points.

Jol's side play fellow strugglers Crystal Palace on Monday and high-fliers Southampton on Saturday - with both games being shown live on Sky Sports - before ties against Liverpool and Manchester United.

Hangeland told Dagbladet: "I am not particularly pleased (with the points total).

"That statistic doesn't impress anyone. We've got work to do - we have had a fairly tough programme, but one point on average per match is worse than we had planned."

Turning point

Regarding the win over Stoke, he added: "I hope it was a turning point.

"It was a truly important win. Without it, it would have looked really bad.

"It is still early in the season. We should not get stressed, but we are hoping to get more in the future and advance in the standings.

"I would like us to collect some points in the two upcoming matches, before the two difficult matches.

"It is possible to take points against United and Liverpool. We've got a tradition of taking points against the top clubs at times."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
