 Fulham had a dreadful season last year, and only got some joy at the end of the season when Jokanovic took over from Kit Symons. They were the joint 3rd highest scorers, mostly due to McCormack’s 21 goals, and Moussa Dembele’s 15, but the latter has since moved to Celtic. So far this summer, Fulham have recruited well, bringing keeper Button from Brentford to strengthen a position, which seems to be getting weaker every season. Kalas has arrived on loan from Chelsea, after a good season with Middlesbrough last time, and the signing of Sone Aluko will hopefully replace the goals that Dembele’s left behind. They should do much better than last season, but it seems like a mid0table finish will be as good as they get this season.
