Hodgson gives up, looks to luck and other teams to bail Fulham out

Poor old Roy Hodgson. With his out of sorts Fulham side struggling to stave off relegation, the managerial journeyman is now looking towards a miracle. Fulham play mighty Manchester United in the English Premier League this weekend and the former Inter Milan manager is hoping (against hope?) for Lady Luck to smile on them at long last.

Hodgson says:

We need to win. We need to win our home games and some away games as well.

We will concentrate on preparing the team for the game and getting the maximum out of the 11 players and I hope the performances will give us the results we need.

There is an element of luck and sometimes you can play well and lose, or play badly and win.

I am very much aware that wins are the order of the day for us and if we don’t get some soon then our predicament will worsen.

We are not alone in the position we find ourselves in.

There are as many as six or seven clubs who are not 100 per cent confident that they are not going to get drawn into a relegation battle and find themselves needing points in the last few games of the season.

It depends not only upon us and the wins we’re getting but it also depends on what’s going on around us.

Talk about getting your excuses lined up, but Fulham have been one of those clubs that sort of hang around not doing a lot. Maybe a relegation would spice things up, they certainly would come back to the top flight before long and maybe with renewed vigour.
