With Fulham's relegation confirmed four weeks ago into the Sky Bet League One, only pride mattered for Felix Magath's side. Why Magath wasn't sacked throughout the season we'll never know. The warning signs were there when Fulham lost on the opening day to Ipswich 2-1. Fulham played awfully. But then when Fulham lost 8-1 to Millwall, resulting in a pitch invasion by the travelling Millwall support and 1,291 arrests, the alarm bells were ringing.
Magath, last night, after completing the "nul points" by losing 1-0 to Norwich City in the 93rd minute, blamed his predecessor, René Meulensteen, for getting no points this season. "It was all René's fault," said Magath, "Had he not bought Mitroglou and Burn then we wouldn't be in this mess even though I sold them. René has to take all the blame for this."
Meulensteen himself, when asked for comment, thought we were winding him up at first before we played him Magath's comments. Meulensteen is currently in hospital having laughed so hard that he has developed a hernia.
Magath also blamed the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Brede Hangeland. He said that they had "rocked Fulham's core" and it was going to take them years to recover. Hangeland said to the media after his game against Chelsea: "How deluded is Magath?"
Magath was asked about Martin Jol, to which he replied: "I wish he could be my assistant. He was fantastic at Fulham." Jol declined to comment.
Shahid Khan, meanwhile, said that "Felix's position at the club is secure".
