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.

"We should have won the West Brom game but we were unlucky and it was the same against Newcastle.

"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."

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.
