Martin Jol says Fulham must become more consistent as they attempt to move up the league table – and wants his side to start by scoring more goals.
The Fulham manager knows his side must become more ruthless in front of goal but is not too worried by their poor start, believing his squad is full of offensive quality.
Sometimes we have showed in Europe and sometimes in the league that we can score goals. We have scored two goals away from home against Wigan and six against QPR, but it is not the consistent thing that I would like it to be.
Even against Arsenal we scored a goal and it is always a nice cushion when you are looking for a result.
Jol once again refused to blame Fulham’s participation in the Europa League for their sluggish start, although he admitted that the likes of Liverpool are probably benefiting from not being involved this year.
That’s what they say in England. They are quite clear about it, especially the big clubs and Liverpool are a big club. Although they have big squads, it’s a problem for other teams like Stoke, who play an away game in Europe and then an away game in the league.
But we can’t complain about it because we are in Europe. I think Liverpool are quite happy not to play in it, and maybe Spurs as well. I think Harry [Redknapp, Tottenham manager] said it could be quite a challenge.
