Back within 18 months with a lovely new stand and hopefully a lovely new neutrals section.

Well that it then, couldn’t emulate the villa, it’s been a funny old season for me, playoff winner always seem to struggle, but only winning 2 home games all season is never going to  keep you up, we’ve been pretty toothless most of season, strangely it wasn’t as bad as our last relegation, at least this season we were reasonably competitive,  but that no good if your not taking the few chances that you get, hopefully looking at three teams relegated last season they’ve all done reasonably well, here hoping we can do the same, anyway all best for next season and hope to see you again in season 22/23

I think what did you a bit was how close the short season was. It was basically 5 weeks between you winning the play offs and playing first prem game and there was two week international break in that aswell.

You were also starting likes of Tim Ream and Odoi in first few games, are either even still there? You'd have got more points on the board if you had all your loan signings in for the first game. Losing to us in the way you did basically killed you dead for the season.

You've actually got a few players I think are pretty decent but as ever I'm watching your highlights while you're watching 90 minutes every week....I really like Andersen, Antonee Robinson and to lesser extent Lookman and think they'd all be good pick ups for us so interested your thoughts on them as certainly your defensive record was miles better when Andersen started playing and you made him captain quickly.

Enjoy the Parker compensation from Spurs!

Always liked Fulham. Even their play off win over us brought to the fore the chaos at the club under Xia and got him out the door that little bit quicker. Stick with Parker and you'll be back up no problem.

I hope you bounce back Frank. Fulham are a good honest club. When you beat us in the play off finals we were gutted obvs but it turned out to be our sliding doors moment. TonyX was a chancer and even if we won that game he was leading us down a financial rabbit hole. We are where we are today thanks entirely to that result so I'll always have a soft spot for you guys in a strange sort of way.

Londonfranky no need to say goodbye stay in touch. On Monday night I was disappointed with Parker, the way he walked off at HT and then sat  in his seat looking gormless for the entire second half. I expected better from him. There was still a fight to fight in those 45 minutes but he gave up. Good luck next season.

Too good for The Championship and just too naieve for the Premier League, you'll learn I'm sure and be back better for it. Nice club, ground and away day, my first ever Villa away day back in Div 3 days.

If Fulham had Ollie Watkins they'd have stayed up. Small margins sometimes.

Met some nice Fulham fans at the play off final and also on holidays.Our defeat was bitter sweet,just imaging Bruce leading the  team in the Premier League is a disturbing thought.

I can only echo all of the decent comments above Franky.  I really hope you get back up first time of asking.  I know I'm staying the obvious but, if you can hang on to your best players and use the loan system properly (not too many as you'll find yourselves in a similar position as the last time, having to recruit a whole new team) then you should do it hopefully with comfort.  All the best, a decent club Fulham.

Good luck for next season Franky! Always great to have a civil discussion with supporters of other teams.*

You'll be back, Frankie.

I thought your defeat at Villa Park hurt your chances a lot. Until then, you were putting together a decent run, esp. away from home. We coughed up a ridiculously soft goal and looked empty of drive and confidence. Then Deano brought three subs on who all had a real impact.

I thought you crumbled at the end of that game, to be honest.
