Fulham are entering the international on the back of a six-game unbeaten run in the Championship which has seen them climb to seventh in the table.
The Cottagers endured a mixed start to the season which saw them lose to Barnsley and Nottingham Forest in their first five matches, but Scott Parker’s side have now assembled a strong run of form to take them closer to the play-offs.
Fulham will be targeting an immediate return to the Premier League following their relegation last term after Slavisa Jokanovic had guided them to promotion, which means the pressure is now on Parker to maintain this positive run.
This means the former midfielder cannot afford much margin for error in his first full season in management, and this was evinced during their latest match when Parker decided to make two half-time changes against Charlton with Fulham 1-0 down.
The West London outfit went on to draw 2-2 with Lee Bowyer’s impressive side, but many Fulham fans would have been expecting their players to take all three points against a team that was playing in League One last term.
Following this mixed start to the campaign, FLW took to Twitter to ask Fulham fans if they would take former promotion-winning manager Jokanovic back at the club’s helm instead of Parker.
If you had the chance, would you take Slavisa Jokanovic back right now? 🤔

Plenty of Fulham fans responded to this tweet by claiming they would currently rather have Jokanovic rather than Parker in charge at Craven Cottage, while another fan rejected this suggestion and claimed the club’s former boss is “overrated”.
Here are some of the responses…

Yes, Parker is clueless

No chance. Irrespective of Parker just no. Painfully overrated.
