Winning the championship
#1
We need to build a squad from ground up that can not only win the championship but flow back effortlessly into the premier league.

It needs to be a more balanced side then that of 2017/18 playoff winners.

We need a flexible coach who can adjust effortlessly between attack and defence as needed.

The teams that are likely to leave and rejoin the championship could not be much worse for Fulham in terms of attacking sides we tend to thrive against leaving ( Norwich, Leeds, Ipswich, Sheffield united ) and battling combative sides joining ( Cardiff , Sunderland, etc ). This will make the task extra tough

Adding to that Middlesbrough, Stoke, Hull, Cardiff, Forrest, derby, Villa, Sunderland etc can all likely match our budget and ambition for promotion.

We will again need the best midfield in the division but need to drastically improve the defence and add more pace on the flanks areas crucial to quality Fulham teams / Fulham’s style of play.

The sessegnan lads have lead to a half hearted approach to signing left back and tight backs looking for temporary solutions. These are crucial positions for Fulham and the club must either go all in with both sess lads as fullbacks or make quality signings there.
The cotton wool approach to ryan in particular should stop he has to keep developing as a top player in a real club and he must be played in his best position. If he has weaknesses at defence that’s not a reason to move him forward he must be told to improve.
Likewise his finishing hasn’t been good enough for a premier league winger so if that’s his best position it too must improve.

The team will need 5 of the best 12 players in the league plus quality all over the park.
3-4 top quality loans will be required alongside 8-10 new signings.

There are only two undisputed starters in the current squad being ryan sessegnan ( if he stays ) and bettinelli.

There is a sour taste from knowing our ambition will again be premier league football yet most the squad were proven completely inept at that level. For that reason I favour an almost entirely new and young squad of talent
