Mison: Where now for Fulham?

The Cottagers turned down the heat on the Dutchman with a much-needed 1-0 win against Stoke before the international break, taking their tally to seven points from seven Premier League games.

Khan, who took over at Fulham in the summer, told the Daily Mail the club wanted "to do better" and added: "Martin is a very experienced coach. He's a good guy.

"We've got off to a start nobody's happy with, whether you're a fan or you're Martin. We want to do better, but I'm not the kind of person who's going to act on impulse.

"You go through life and learn valuable lessons. I want Fulham to be very successful. You can't go out of the frying pan and into the fire. That's the most important thing.

"Relegation is a horrible thought, but you've got to keep in mind it's only seven games. You can't jump to conclusions."

He urged fans who have been calling for Jol's dismissal to keep Fulham's situation in perspective, adding: "There are 31 games to play. You can't feel too good and you can't feel too bad."
