Re: Tony Mowbray ... nearing the exit ?

They were getting excited when they were hovering just below the play offs and Dack was back in January. Reading comments of ‘best squad in league’ and ‘automatic promotion is on’ was amusing. Suddenly a few weeks on they 15 points from the play offs and 8 points off the drop!

We need to win 4 of our remaining games or 3 wins and a few draws. Fulham have won 4 games all season if they finish the season doubling and more that stat with the fixtures coming up they will deserve to stay up.

2022 is when his current contract is up, and as yet it doesn't appear he's looking to extend, however I guess if he's backed in the transfer market that might change his mind.
