    Has essentially already begun. Dan Burn tweeted this today.

    Dan Burn seems like a good guy, but as a player I'm not upset about him leaving. Here is the short list of players I'd like to see come back next year:
    • Bettinelli
    • Fredericks
    • Madl
    • Cairney
    • McCormack
    I've got a soft spot for Christensen, Hyndman, and Woodrow, but I think Christensen may be damaged goods now and Hyndman and Woodrow might be better off someplace else.

    I'm still not sure which UK news outlets are credible or not but I found this bit from the telegraph interesting.
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football...ss-mccormack-for-12-million-if-aston-villa-o/
    "Fulham’s chief football officer, Mike Rigg, is also facing an uncertain future, ahead of a review into the club's season.

    Rigg has overseen a nightmare campaign in which Fulham finished the season in 20th place, 11 points above the relegation zone.

    The former Football Association's head of talent management was appointed in March last year but has overseen a £7 million summer spending spree which has yielded little improvement on the field.

    Rigg was also criticised over Fulham's 49-day search for a new manager after the dismissal of Kit Symons, eventually appointing Slavisa Jokanovic despite talks with Nigel Pearson, Steve Clarke and Gary Rowett.

    Fulham are conducting an extensive investigation into the season and Rigg’s position could be under threat."​

    I won't cry over Burn's departure. The defense needs to be sorted out before preseason starts.

    The closed captioning on that video is hilarious however the message on that video is shit. But then, extending a player who turns 36 early in the season, who is well past his best & who can't stay healthy is just what I'd expect of Fulham these days.

    From Jokanovic in the article:
    It felt like we were giving up a lot of penalties and set pieces, but seeing those numbers is shocking. You've diagnosed critical problems Dr. J - hope you can find a cure. Set piece defense reflects on the entire team, not just the back line. I think the defensive problems are need to be owned by everyone.

    I think the keeper gets the majority share of the blame (not sure exactly how much, but more than any of the other components) on set pc d. We were great at that aspect until Schwarzer left.

    The set piece defense issue seemed to coincide with the relegation season (shocker), although I haven't run the numbers to confirm that theory. The fact is, everybody becomes a defender on a set piece for the opponent...everybody. The keeper may well get the lion's share of the blame for set piece failure on defense, but I doubt it is warranted. Don't think the Aussie would've fared much better, even in his prime, than Messrs. Stekelenburg, Stockdale, Kiraly, Etheridge, Jaronen, Bettinelli, Lonergan, Lewis and others I may have forgotten, have. Wow, that's a lot of keepers in such a short time span, eh? Perhaps that's as much a part of the problem as anything. At any rate, not news to us, huh? I believe it is a team failure,

    He wasn't on Jump's short list of players to keep, but he was on mine, so I'm happy that Madl has been signed.

    No real surprise here, since he was essentially Joka's first first new face (along with Ince and Labayad).I wasn't as enamored with him as much of the fan base seemed to be after his first few appearances, but looks like he's going to be around for awhile, so might as well get used to it.

    Echo the positive thoughts about seeing Madl signed permanently.

    As far as Hyndman goes, it's been a forgone conclusion for months, but still disappointed. I don't buy into the 'Championship is too physical' argument in regards to him. He's young, so he's going to look great one week, not so much the next, but to develop a player with his obvious talent you have to throw him out 8-10 weeks in a row and let him grow. It never happened, I truly believed if we had done it, he would of reupped, and with a good buyout clause the club would of cashed in. Hope for Emerson's sake he finds a European club that will develop him.

    He looked very good in the US international in the second half. Wynalda is deeply in love with him.

    According to Wikipedia it is July 1 for England. I've tried finding a source to confirm, but I've been unsuccessful. Damn you @astroevan ! Why must you make us work so hard? :D
