Do you think the club should keep faith with Kit Symons?
Who would you like to see appointed if he is let go?

I think Kit is falling short plus won't be able to get the right players in even on loans . I have seen few matches where he struggled in tactics as well as making good use of subs . I would hope to see someone like Steve Mac in from Derby . He almost did it with Derby and I'm surprised that he is still operating at the lower level . What have really impressed me that he is so cool and never panicked and gave true and honest analyses pre and post matches .

Some teams when they flirt with relegation on regular occasions : they get kind of arrogance and start believing it will never happens until eventually happens . Newcastle fits the mould now and if they do not address it, I guess it will happen sooner than later .

Would Hull beat Man U and send either Newcastle or Sunderland down, in all honesty non of the above deserves to be in the Premiership and I can't see any of them picking up points anyway, so ; status quo
Do you agree?

{Ed001's Note - I think the same, none of them are likely to get any points.}

I'm a Fulham fan, and been supporting the club for many years. During our time in the premiership I used to analyse the performance of the visiting team . I realised that Man united, Man city as well as Everton were the most hard working teams and I was so taken by their level of fitness and of the ball movements . Yet the most entertaining was Swansea under BR who went to Liverpool . The year spent in the championship is something different ; the margin is minimal between clubs and real quality does not add great deal . Dogged performance and fighting spirit can take you far as well as well as organisation . Fulham caught Derby county and beat them 2-0 at the cottage and in my view that performance was a champions performance in terms of application and taking small risks in defence to stop the play early on away from our 18 yards . Also the game against Middlesborough was worth commending . They are the same players who got brushed aside by lower teams and even lost to some relegated sides . Application and fighting spirit are the key to get out of this league . You hardly ever going to convince a quality player to sign for you if you are in the championship it's actually difficult to keep that quality player in the squad if he is on top form and the big clubs coming knocking on the door . Maybe above average striker and a half decent midfielder and the rest are hungry dogs will do the job and once threaded few decent result together, other teams will think twice when you play them . I thought Derby were a good side, they looked at least like a team and believe it or not we started the bad run of results for them . I just hope that Fulham invest in few fighters and keep the quality ones in . And maybe just maybe it will happen . Bournemouth adopted that policy and they got it right . If they do not bring few more quality players in, they will be straight back down . Watford are better side and I think Sunderland will go down next season unless they do some serious business in the summer . QPR will be in the championship for few years to come .
