It's been a long week at Fulham .
Fans were crying out for any bit of transfer news as the week started, just a little hope that things were happening behind the scenes, and they got that with the arrival of two loanees in the shape of Oliver Norwood and Tomas Kalas.
There was also the final pre-season friendly to be played this summer, which took place at the Cottage on Saturday as Wolfsburg visited west London, leaving with a positive 3-0 victory over Slavisa Jokanovic's side.
But that was just the start, and it was what was said after by the manager that got people talking on social media and in the pubs for the following hours and day.
