As part of our 2006/2007 Premiership season-end review, here’s a look at how Fulham’s season went. Read up, then offer your own advice on how Fulham can improve this summer.

  1. Pre-season expectations: I’m not sure how well Fulham were expected to do given the lack of funds, but overall I’d say Chris Coleman wanted Fulham to push for a top-10 spot.
  2. Season evaluation: Fulham barely survived and ended 1 point above the relegation zone. To say that it is was a disappointing season would be a massive understatement.
  3. The Big Negative: The lack of fight shown by the players – I mean, Watford played harder, Sheffield United played much harder than Fulham.
  4. The Big Positive: Survival. Fulham live to fight another season in the Premiership, and with the new TV deal this means the club can invest more into the squad.
  5. Summer Priority: Lawrie Sanchez rebuild the squad, and push Fulham back up the table. Anything – mid-table mediocrity even (think Boro) – would be better than what Fulham went through this season.

Fulham need investment, but perhaps more importantly they need self-belief and the will to fight.

Now it’s your turn: How do you think Fulham can improve this summer?
