Felix Magath suffered chants for his head as Fulham slumped to a third defeat on the trot against Wolves – but told angry fans to remember what happened to Liverpool a couple of seasons back.
The manager drew comparisons with his suffering side and the Reds from the 2012-13 season.
“They had all those problems in the beginning of the season,” he said.
“Liverpool had a new trainer, a new philosophy and many young players. At the start of that season, they only managed their first win after five games and it took them eight games to win at home.
“The following season they probably should have won the title. This is what can be accomplished with young, talented and ambitious players.
"At the moment, we’re conceding early goals so we can’t build up confidence."
Magath is on the hunt for up to three new players, but flat batted any chance of spending big in the Championship.
In fact, he spent a portion of pre-match chatting to owner Shahid Khan, trying to reassure him as well.
“We talked about the situation and the team,” the manager explained.
“He knows that it might be a difficult period in the beginning of the season if you have a new team and a young team.”
