Jol fine with Fulham direction

Fulham boss Martin Jol makes no excuses for the fine system at Craven Cottage so his players pull in the same direction.[LNB] Some critics thought it was harsh when teenager Pajtim Kasami was fined £500 after missing a penalty against Chelsea in the Carling Cup last month. [LNB]He was fined for taking the penalty - not for failing to score - as he was not the designated taker and Jol insists discipline is needed if the team are to prove a success this term.[LNB]He told the Daily Star: "I spoke to Kasami. And he agreed with the fine. I feel we have a disciplined team.[LNB]"If I tell someone to take the free-kicks, there shouldn't be a 19-year-old taking the ball off you. [LNB]"It's not the right thing. Danny Murphy is the penalty taker and Bobby Zamora can take a penalty. [LNB]"So I don't think in the next game someone else should take the ball. That is not good discipline, and that was the only issue.[LNB]"I spoke about fines and discipline at the start of the season and said it's all coming back to us, for drinks, at the Christmas party for example, although I don't think that will be enough.[LNB]"It's not a game but if someone is late for dinner before an away match it's undisciplined and I don't want that. [LNB]"I had the same with a manager, who is well known, who said they were all on time. I asked one of his Dutch players and he said they are always late. [LNB]"I hate that. You all have to go in the same direction."
