    • José Mourinho deciding whether to let 20-year-old leave
    • Fulham also interested but getting Oliver Skipp more likely

    Ajax are interested in signing Ryan Sessegnon on loan if Tottenham make the 20-year-old available.

    The Dutch champions are searching for attacking reinforcements and admire Sessegnon, who has found opportunities hard to come by since leaving Fulham for £25m last summer. He has made 12 appearances for Spurs and José Mourinho is considering whether the winger, who can also play at left-back, would benefit from regular football elsewhere.

    Goalkeeper: Marek Rodak (Fulham) Scott Parker acknowledged it was a brave call but the Slovakian, who joined the club at 16, has flourished since being made No 1 in October. Rodak, who previously excelled on loan at Rotherham, made a string of impressive saves en route to promotion, notably against Cardiff in the play-off semi-final. No first-choice goalkeeper finished with a better clean sheet ratio.

  • Wed, 05 Aug 2020 16:48:45 +0000: The view from the pubs at Griffin Park as Brentford miss out on promotion - Fulham | The Guardian

    Fans were hopeful, then despondent and finally defiant as their team lost to Fulham in the Championship play-off final

    By Richard Foster for the Guardian Sport Network

    It is the night of the Championship play-off final and there is a tangible sense of anticipation on the streets of Brentford, with one enterprising vendor even selling souvenir flags and scarves outside Griffin Park for a match that was taking place five miles away at an empty stadium. As their team prepares to face Fulham at Wembley, Brentford fans are congregating outside the pubs on the four corners of the stadium, making the most of the evening sunshine as they wait patiently to be allowed in.

    There is a buzz in the air and Will Sylvester, a 19-year-old Brentford fan who lives in sight of the ground, is feeling good. “I am pretty confident that this time we are going to do it,” he says. Will’s father Eamonn has been a regular “across the road” since his first match back in April 1976. “It was against Exeter City,” Eamonn recalls. “We thrashed them 5-1 and I thought, well, this is all rather easy.”

  • Wed, 05 Aug 2020 16:30:11 +0000: Fulham can learn from their 2018 promotion which soon turned sour - Fulham | The Guardian

    Scott Parker will have a few days to unwind but the play-off winning manager is conscious the new campaign begins in five weeks and they do not want a repeat of last time

    The ball thudded into the net as David Raya, seemingly in slow motion, scrambled in vain to prevent Joe Bryan’s freakish free-kick from creeping inside his right goalpost but perhaps the most striking image of the Championship play-off final arrived after the final whistle, when an emotional Scott Parker was trying to put it all into words.

    Moments earlier, as tears pooled in his eyes, Parker buried his head in Aleksandar Mitrovic’s shoulder. He was elated but exhausted after a campaign that began with pre-season testing 409 days earlier culminated in the Fulham players bobbing up and down in a deserted Wembley, basking in the joy of promotion.

    The pragmatism of Scott Parker’s Fulham triumphed over the doomed idealism of Thomas Frank’s Brentford in a game that failed to live up to the billing

    And so, ultimately, it all came down to this. A full year of toil; 120 minutes of grim application, in many cases a lifetime of longing. A free-kick in a seemingly innocuous position on the left wing. A defence maintaining an audaciously high line, a goalkeeper anxiously patrolling the space behind it and a left-back who spied an irresistible opportunity to write himself into folklore.

    That, ultimately, was all it took to send Fulham back to the Premier League and leave Brentford in the Championship for another season. On one level, it felt unspeakably senseless for something this important to be settled by something this silly. But then again, here we all were, watching a terrible game at an empty Wembley Stadium in August, with fake crowd noise being piped over the airwaves and a socially-distanced national anthem at the start. Perhaps, on reflection, the ship had already sailed on that score.
