Magath: Fulham can stay up

Felix Magath still believes Fulham can avoid relegation this season despite losing 3-1 at Cardiff City to fall further adrift at the bottom of the Premier League.

Lewis Holtby scored Fulham's only goal in south Wales and for a short period of time with the score at 1-1, it looked like the visitors might get more than just a point.

But Cardiff captain Steven Caulker added a second goal to his first-half opener before the unfortunate Sascha Riether deflected the ball beyond Maarten Stekelenburg.

And, speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Magath admitted the defeat was a tough one to take.

He said: "We are disappointed that we lose such an important game so the relegation fight goes on.

"We were not too good today but for us it is a problem when we score too late. We played OK but one goal and our confidence goes.

"I thought we might do better when we came back but that takes our confidence away when we lose the second goal.

"Nine games [left this season] is a lot of points, but for sure we have to win our home games like Cardiff did today. It is still possible."

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!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
