Fulham have parted company with boss Martin Jol after the club's terrible run of form.

Jol joined Fulham back in June 2011 and many good things were expected of him, he guided Fulham to ninth place in his first season in charge of the club. They finished on 52 points, joint with Liverpool.

But things could only get worse for the Cottagers, and they finished 12th the next season, which still wasn't considered as a bad result.

Now, however, the situation at Craven Cottage has reached rock bottom, with Fulham currently sitting in 18th spot.

It is most definitely time for a change and even Jol admitted that himself.

"Our poor form and results this season are undeniable, and Fulham supporters deserve better," said Fulham chairman Shahid Khan in a statement.

Saturday's game against West Ham appeared to be the final straw for Jol, and the 3-0 loss certainly was it for the under-pressure boss.

Rene Meulensteen has been placed in temporary charge at the club, and it is questionable if Fulham already had him in mind for next manager when they hired him.

Although, I do not believe it is all Jol's fault I do think that it is a time for change at the club who sit three points from safety.

Fulham need to start performing, or will face life in the Championship next season. A time of worry for Fulham fans?
