Fulham manager Scott Parker claimed that Tuesday's 4-1 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road that sealed their relegation was a snapshot of their entire campaign.
The Cottagers' relegation was finalised following the loss on Tuesday, as they were mathematically eliminated from the Premier League in their first season back in the top flight. Fulham competed well in the first half of the match, and the game was looking promising until three second-half goals came during a 13-minute nightmare spell for the Whites.
The manager was unsurprisingly discontent, saying in his post-game press conference (via Fulham's official website):
“We can’t weather a storm. In the Championship you get away with it, but in this division, you’re not getting away with it.
Parker continued to reflect on the Cottagers' season by saying:
“I’m sure there’s a mental issue. When you’re at the bottom, everything becomes a lot harder. There’s been a naivety in certain instances of certain games, and that was prevalent tonight.
