Martin Jol: Keen to see Fulham reach 40 points as soon as possible

The Craven Cottage side currently have 28 points on the board and could find themselves dragged into a relegation battle.

Fulham were unlucky not to pick up at least a point from the narrow defeat to Manchester United at the weekend and Jol hopes they can secure survival before the final day of the season for the sake of his health.

"First you need 36, 37 points," said Jol. "After that you know about 40 points, it's always the same. If we'd beaten United and had 31 points now it would be finished.

"But if you've got to wait for that until the last game of the season, you'll probably end up in hospital just before that, which is not what you want!"

Meanwhile, Jol believes their business in last month's transfer window will help them steer clear of trouble after bringing in five new faces.

"Normally I hate the transfer window but this time it was a good one for us because we could do a lot," added Jol

"Last time we were robbed of our best players a day before the window finished when Mousa Dembele and Clint Dempsey left.

"We needed this window but it wasn't easy because we didn't have a lot of money. However I still wanted to strengthen the squad."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
