    Has anyone else been incredibly impressed with Fulham's transfer business to date?

    Jean Michael Seri
    Andre Schurrle
    Fabri
    Maxime Le Larchand
    Aleksandar Mitrovic

    Also reported to have got Alfie Mawson.

    With the assumption that their expansive, passing game will be better suited to the Premier League - I think they'll be fighting for top half of the table.

    Im wondering, does all this fit in with FFP ?, but so far its looking impressive, would like to have seen Alfie Mawson here at Wolves.

    Fulham can get round FFP same way we can spend lots this season just impacts next season to less signings if we stay up. However if they or us got relegated would have to sell off players as an obvious opinion but the books would need balancing or end up like villa financially crippled because there’s procedures to follow not just having cash investment. I’d expect villa to probably break those rules and face a fine and embargo within 12 months

    Mitrovic played for them last season, not done it in the prem before. Seri although I highly rate is a 50-50 if he will adjust to the prem next season. Schurlle is decent but are his best days behind him. Mawson is a great signing imo and I have no idea about the others. I stop think we are looking at a higher calibre of player. Patricio is easily in the top 6/7 keepers in the world, moutinho although some people have written off after 45 mins when he is still unfit (bloody barmy) is an unbelievable coup and will produce many moments of quality throughout the season and Jonny who I also think will be a great signing (athletico do not give 6 year deals to anyone) on top of that we have signed Jota for 13 mill which is a steal, boly for 11 which again we know we have committed daylight robbery getting him for that price, Vinegre for 2 mill WOW!!! Jimenez for 3 mill for the season. Only one I’m not sure on is bonatini oh and we have signed Neves and Nuno to long term deals. We have pi##ed all over Fulham this summer on transfers

    Yep. I reckon their window so far ranks alongside ours and Liverpool’s as the most impressive of any PL club.

    They’ll be competitive next year.

    Very impressive window IMO. Showing plenty of ambition and like us are adding to what was already a pretty decent squad. I think they will do well.

    The only way I look at it is would I swap positions with them?

    The answer is a resounding no. Think we have far more quality and we're not finished yet.

    I think you're getting carried away. It's good and they'll probably finish above the deadweights, easily in mid-table but they're still Fulham and those aren't world-beaters. The next Bournemouth, with a good manager. Woopety woo.

    Yes indeed, I pride myself on having a good workable knowledge of the English language, but this eludes me, though I do get the gist of what it might mean through context.
    But I wouldn't mind a more elaborate explanation.

    If we go into the season with the squad we have now against Fulham's squad as it stands now then I think they would finish higher.
    Bringing a quality striker in is the difference between an uncomfortable bottom half finish and a comfortable top half finish for us IMO.

    Mawson looks to be a very good addition, they have a very good manger and will do well.

    They’ve had a very good window so far, particularly on paper.

    However Schürrle hasn’t played much over the last two seasons, Seri has had one superb season with two decent ones either side at the age of 27 and Mitrovic struggle at Newcastle in the PL.

    I think they’ll do well though, Jokanovic is a very good manager and I think he’ll manage to get the best out of all three.

    Alfie Mawson is/was always going to sign for a London club. Craven Cottage is no more than a couple of bus rides away from where he grew up.

    It started in Love Island, I think, & refers to different levels of sexual activity, from kissing onwards, bit like getting to first base etc.

    Is "doing bits" a yoof phrase?

    It sounds like something Harry Redknapp would say whilst he drapes his face out of the open window of a rangerover.

    Fulham are like us in having wealthy ownership, a good manager and ambition. Neither of us should struggle this season.

    Of the promoted clubs then, that leaves Cardiff....:)

    Never (like) heard of that (like) phrase of (like) 'doing bits' (like) before. It's like (like) people putting the (like) word like (like) in places it shouldn't be (like).

    Anyway, Re. Fulham. I think they've had a good show so far, some of there's are good signings we'd easily take here and vice versa.

    Why have people decided Mitrovic is better than Jimenez?

    Did not start on Love Island ahahaha

    In short if someone is "doing bits" it just means that they're doing something good.

    Source: I'm 18

    Also for clarification, love Island is dire and anyone who watches it should reconsider what they're spending their time doing.

    Yes Fulham like Liverpool are making an effort this summer but there’s one other team I think is going under the radar and they’ve signed some really good players:

    Willy Boly-FC Porto
    Diogo Jota- Atletico Madrid
    Ruben Vinagre-Monaco
    Raul Jimenez-Benfica
    Joao Moutinho-Monaco
    Leo Bonatini-Al-Hilal
    Rui Patricio- Sporting CP
    Jonny Castro Otto- Atletico Madrid

    That looks impressive but I understand some of their fans are a bit disappointed with there business to date. Well hey ho you can’t please everyone.
    Wish my team was doing similar. Oh hold on.....

    Fulham are ahead of us with their overall squad and signings so far. While we were the most consistent over the season in playing good football fulham were the best footballing team from christmas onwards so as the squads stand they will be a long way ahead of us at the final table. Top 10 for them while i see us in bottom 8.

    Probably just looking at their relative output last season. Reality is that one has so far failed to light up the PL, and the other has not kicked a ball in the PL yet, so nobody really knows what this season holds.

    Fulham were heavily reliant on Mitrovic last season. If he struggles against PL standard defenders (which is all he has done so far in his career), they've got a problem. I think we may well end up with more quality man-for-man than Fulham, barring a couple of exceptions. Seri is well-rated so we'll see how he gets on (but is he better than Neves or Moutinho?). Schurrle is a good signing on paper, but his career seems to have stuttered in the last few years, both domestically and internationally. Would he be a significant upgrade on Jota? Honestly, It's only really Sessegnon who I think would definitely get into our starting XI as things stand.

    Just as a public service announcement- “doing bits” was stolen from the archives of every twitter transfer page and used ironically.

    Love Island is for morons

    Also, don't forget how good their form was last season (from Xmas onward). Their points return in that period even blew us out of the water. I think they'll do quite well.
