Fearing relegation, Fulham panics, turns to eccentric Magath

Friday February 21st, 2014
Felix Magath has been charged with guiding Fulham to safety from the relegation zone.

However Fulham was doing, though, what is important is what happens now. It has 12 games to haul itself to safety, which will probably mean claiming at least 15 and perhaps as many as 18 points. Of those final 12 games, only four are against sides in the top six, while seven are against other sides in relegation danger. Magath's claim that Saturday's match against fourth-from-bottom West Bromwch Albion is "the most important in the club's history" may be exaggerated, but it would be a good place to start the recovery.
