Shahid Khan: Hoping Fulham can kick-start season

Khan was present at Selhurst Park to see his Fulham side claim a 4-1 win, and he hopes they can take inspiration from that success.

"I think, and have believed this for quite some time, that we have great players and some of those are new to Fulham and some of them have been here for a while," he told Sky Sports News.

"It was a break-out moment and I hope this now continues."

Khan admits he almost could not believe the volley from Pajtim Kasami against Palace, which many are already suggesting will be goal of the season.

"It was unbelievable and I kept looking for the replay on the video board and I had to go back in and see it on the television," he said. "It is one of those things did I really see what I saw?"

He also reiterated his backing for manager Martin Jol, adding: "He is the man for me.

"You have to keep in mind he is a very experienced guy and the start we have had, whether you're Martin Jol or any Fulham supporter, you're not happy and we can do better, and our players are a lot more talented and they proved that on Monday night."

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.
