I'd love to agree with the positive posts after Saturdays good win but to be honest it is difficult. I can't understand why most of you who were decrying Kit before Saturday have now become his number one fans after one win. I was there Saturday as I am for all games and it was a hard fought and well deserved win however, Derby were not at the races (did you see what I did there) and we have been here before after beating Norwich and after beating Brum away and Wolves in the cup and and and so those of you who think Kit has had an epiphany moment reserve your good judgment until after the next three or four games. Personally I think nothing will change and if Rod is fit he will play as always - people always return to type and Kit is no different to any of us. I really hope we get something out of Watford - my heart says we will but my head says forget it!!
I'm not saying I have suddenlly become his No1 fan, all 'm saying is lets wait till the end of the Bournemouth game and see after the next two fixtures IF we have made progress, turned the corner...call it what you will. I don't see Kit going anywhere soon, so lets hope he's finally got it right, because there's noone else in line for the hotsit.

Yes, Saturday's win was very welcome, and it gives us high hopes of survival this season, but our bad luck is the way that the fixtures have fallen. Millwall(Away)Derby(Home)Watford(Away) and Bournemouth(Home)These 4 on the run, would be difficult for most teams, let alone Fulham. The most optimistic of us, if we are being honest, would have worked out before these matches, that we would be lucky on know form, to get 2 points out of the 12. We have already gained 4 points, so that is a better start then we thought, and if, and I say if, we get anything out of the next two games, then we will have done very well indeed. COYW

Hi Geezer, I dont see why we should loose if Hugo plays, as each player has said, it's a confidence thing and that has to go right throught the team, IF hugo is part of our squad then we need him to have the same conifedence as he had earlier on in the season it's no good just one or two having it its all or nothing.

Geezer, I really can't see Kit bringing Hugo back, even if he is fully fit. He should persevere with Woodrow, and maybe, bring in Matt Smith, who I understand, is now back with us. Put Hugo on the bench, and bring him on late if required. Mind you the way Dembele played when he came on, why not give him another chance. Could be a very interesting line up tonight. I know that we will expect the worst against Watford, but it is surprising how many teams lose or draw the home leg, when they have won away. Our pairing against Brighton is a prime example. So all is not lost, and I have a funny feeling that we will play much better against them tonight, than we did at home. Let's go for it, we have nothing to lose.

Not sure you are correct in assuming we are now " Kit fans" after Saturday's result , the fact is that he is and may well remain our manager for the foreseeable future, all we want is what's best for our club and feel that the next couple of games will tell us if we are at last going in the right direction, and a draw tonight would be a good result.

Problem for kit is that playing today and Friday means he has to play other players and cant stick with the same 11. I feel he will play Hugo as soon as he is fit as he is 'one of his boys'. Tonight would be an ideal oppotunity to give Smith, Kavagnah, Hoogland, and Roberts game time but can I see it happening?. No I can't.

This proves my earlier point Steve, ...IF... the squads confidence is as high as they make out and we go to Vicage Road tonight believing we CAN win, and your right with games so close together we need that confidence through the club so IF Hugo dose come of the bench we can get him scoring as earier in th season. CONFIDENCE HAS TO BE THROUGH THE WHOLE CLUB not just a couple who speak on ffc site.

Interesting debate you've started MST.My opinion is as good as we played on Saturday I still have to question the determination and desire to take a game by the horns and go for the throat.We did that on Saturday and it was successful against a top team so why can't we do it more often?Example for me would be Scott Parker the captain,the week before he was being slated by some and against Derby he was suddenly Roy of the Rovers.I know Parker's getting on a bit but you can't have your captain blowing hot and cold like that,he's the one on the pitch that is supposed to lead by example.Also has Kit turned into a technical genius overnight?Sometimes you can hit on a successful system by mistake,maybe that happened on Saturday.I was impressed with the team overall but need to watch closely tonight to see whether we've turned a corner.Really looking forward to this one.

I really think we should not be happy with survival, we have a Billionaire owner, who is probably richer than Al Fayad who took us up the table. NOT down. Anything less than promotion is not acceptable, 1 win and every ones excited we may avoid demotion.
WHAT A LAUGH

Dont forget we didnt have a keeper for most of the last game.

one thing i noticed about saturdays game was the fact that we had a very fair and unbiased referee which helped our team to become more confident unlike those Dianagate fa led referees tv pundits and newspaper men who still dwell in the past the players wear fairplay badges so lets have some.billybee
