Bryan Ruiz: Backing boss

Bryan Ruiz: Backing boss

The Cottagers are without a win since the opening day of the Premier League season and are currently sitting third from bottom after a weekend home loss to Cardiff.

A section of fans barracked Jol following their latest defeat, and the Dutchman shouldered the responsibility for the loss.

However, Ruiz insists that the players are not looking for Jol to depart.

"We are all in it together. He's having a difficult time because everybody blames him for the results," the Costa Rica international told the Fulham Chronicle.

"But we're a team and we can and will change things.

"He means a lot to me because he gave me the opportunity to come here.

"He likes to talk to the players and to motivate us, especially when we have a difficult situation. It's a difficult situation, but the season is still young.

"Hopefully we will get a good result next week.

"It's going to be a difficult game. We know we need to win."

I

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

W

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
