Alexander Kacaniklic: Fulham midfielder backing boss Martin Jol

Supporters were calling for Jol's departure during the home draw to West Brom, but the struggling Premier League side showed signs of vast improvement during Tuesday's Capital Cup win over Everton.

Booed off after an unimpressive first-half display, the Cottagers responded well, scoring twice to seal a 2-1 victory against the Toffees, who were unbeaten before arriving at Craven Cottage.

Asked if criticism of Jol was fair, the midfielder, who was given his first-team start in West London by the Dutchman, said: "No, not really.

"He is always encouraging us so we are really happy for him and the team.

"We are close. He is always out on the training pitch with us and wants to get involved.

"He is great. Everyone has got their own style but, as a player, you want to be able to speak to the manager and have confidence that you can speak to

him."

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.
