TRY AGAIN,do we or do we not want promotion? seem the board aint to bothered, as no striker has arrived, we needed a striker weeks ago cant keep relying on mitro, we get mid/,defenders but strikers !!! no way. We keep dropping points after points on account the rest of our squad aint that clever,they get close play pretty but goals !!!! nah ! not very good at them . Cannot see us going on a 23 game run with our goal shy mob,we now rely on the defence who have improved since hector arrived , one good buy.

Lots of comments on here following last nights disappointing display . Some of the fans commenting seem to be supporting Parker , I find this rather surprising , do people really think that our inexperienced manager has produced displays and results that show he has exceeded expectations from our highly rated squad ? Surely we should be capable of better .
Replies
Totally agree....there are a lot of managers getting far better and consistent performances out of squads that are not half as good as ours. So why can't Parker get consistent performances out of the talent pool everyone says we have?

First of all , I want Scott to be successful as our manager . I like most of what he is trying to do . But to say last night we played with passion and desire is stretching it a bit . We were flat throughout , so slow - why make one pass when 10 will do . We ambled forward , saw nothing was happening like players running into space so passed back to start all over again . Even allowing for the injuries , we had no pace at all . In the last 20 minutes so many sloppy passes , esp from Ream who up until this had probably been one of better players . Passes went to opposition , or behind our players or straight out of touch . We dont seem to be able to break from defence to attack in three or four passes , and by the time we get anywhere near opposition box they have 10 players back . In my mind two points lost .
Replies
Agree...it's all down to coaching. We do have some physically very quick players. And, to add on the Cairney issue, he clearly isn't fit at the moment. Watched him a few times in the game yesterday and after making any type of run he had to take a breather, sometimes with hands on his knees.
posted by Joka's Revenge (Guest) - Thursday 23rd January 2020, 2:04 PM
 
He doesn't look fit and was our worst performer v Middlesborough. However, I watched the 2 min highlights on the Sky Sports website this morning and he was playing every key pass for the attacks that were deemed highlights. So feel we might be a little harsh on him, still a quality ball player and if pace and dynamism isn't our strength right now, passing needs to be. Best days are definitely behind him but don't forget the screamers he was scoring earlier in the season too.
posted by David (Guest) - Thursday 23rd January 2020, 2:36 PM
 
Not sure if its his fitness or how he's been told to play. Cariney is never go to be fast or able to play with his right foot! that's no secret and everyone know that. What he was really good at is keeping the ball and spreading the ball across the pitch and playing long passes - generally in the attacking direction. For whatever reason, this season he's stopped doing any long passes and everytime he gets the ball, he plays it back. He's almost too scared to take a pass. Hence, slowing the play down. Do you remember Jazzy Richards. No comparison but Cairney is like Jaz stopping the play a lot at the moment. He will only get better! give him a break!

It is amazing that for ages we have been banging on about getting defenders, we got wingers. We get defenders and now it’s strikers. We have not had the best of luck with injuries. No one mentioned strikers when we got Knockaert and Cav, everyone saying the best front three in the division. We can go out and get Sergio Aquero but he would not get the service if we continue to play like last night. Don’t forget we have AK and Stansfield on the bench,Mbenza is on the radar. We should have started with Cairney on the bench, why would an unfit player start in a game that is so important? Look what’s happened to Rashford. We look different class when we play at pace, why play so slow? Is it because Cairney can’t play fast?. Drop him, get him fit and bring him back for the run in.

Good call. He should start against city. Watched Sheffield Utd play them and they got into them from the off, as soon as they won the ball they moved forward at pace. We give the ball away like we did against Charlton they will tear us to bits. Great opportunity to show we can be a good side.

It's getting very tight in the top 10!! who would have thought Millwall can come within a few points of us! Who would have thought both West Brom and Leeds dropping 10 points in a space of 2-3 weeks! The most important thing is we are keeping clean sheets and we look the more likely team to win. We just have to keep going, stay within 5-6 points from top 2 and stay in the top 6. Our strong squad, albeit quite a few injuries at the moment, will put us in a great position for March and April! COYW
Replies
You ask the question " who would have thought that Millwall could get close to us" as if somehow it's forbidden for them to be within touching distance of mighty Fulham.if they win their game in hand ithey will be just two points behind us. And I would suggest a few more lacklustre performances like the one last night and who knows they could easily overtake us !

Admittedly looked a bit light up top,but second clean sheet in a week looking so much more organised apart from a few shaky moments I’ll consider that a decent result,Man City will be a distraction from the league and clearly miss Mitro more importantly he’s goals so decent result home to Huddersfield and another clean sheet we’re back in the game!

Let's put last night into perspective - No Mitro, No Knock, No AK (as has been posted earlier). Charlton are fighting to avoid being being sucked into relegation drop zone. Notts Forest dropped points last night, WBA and Leeds have both been dropping points. We are still up there and in a great position to reach play offs, if not auto spot. Man City in (Crapo Cup) at weekend who cares = more recovery time for our injured lads. Plus the key point of....not conceding. Hector is now looking supreme and doing great marshalling at the back. So well said Chief and ffs lets have a tad more optimism perleeease.

Plus Will, I'd say just this... if someone had said to me back in July 2019 we'd be sitting pretty in 3 spot and a couple of points behind the auto prom spots I'd have bitten not just your hand off but would have consumed pretty much most of your entire corpse (excluding certain bits I grant you).

Another gutless performance by our “captain “ who is soft as baby sh*t. No Mitro, AK, Knockaert.....any proper captain who can shoot like TC can should’ve had the stones to be shooting from all over the pitch. He’s looking so lazy and poor the last 6 weeks.
Replies
Agreed, looking slugish but then most of the team were heavy legged apart from Odoi and our new centre back Hector. Also noticed they were all waving there arms and pointing who and where the players should pass the ball to. What is that all about.. They are pros they don't need their team mates to point the next pass for them. Yes we missed a big centre forward last night but can't believe there's no one coming through the youth to have been given a chance last night. Anyway clean sheet and so encouraged by Hector's performance.. Our new captain me thinks!

Agreed with you until I watched the highlights. Cairney played a key pass for every single one of our chances last night. Without him we might not have had a shot.

It wasn't our best game, but we did create a few chances against Charlton. Bobby reid found himself in a few positions and he had a few chances, Reidy hasn't got the best foot for shooting a football. His left foot is a touch weak. I don't usually stick up for Parker, but apart from trying out O'Reilly or bringing Kabano on, he set Fulham up okay-ish. We hit one off the bar, courtesy of Hector etc, we had chances folks! Clear the brain-fog from our eyes and you can see we had enough chances to knick that game. We are waiting for Mitrovic to come back along with Kamara. I wouldn't count Knockheart as a striker, Knockheart is useful but he misses chances on goal for fun. Charlton are no slackers when they turn up, and they have beaten Leeds and WBA this season. It is a puzzle why they are in the position they are in, nut they still are a good side. No point beating ourselves up about this result, a draw will do us okay for now. Roll on to the FA Cup and bring the kids out...

That was a total bore, Ream was really poor, gave the ball away when not even being pressed. Drop the swanking about on the pitch and move the ball fast. Having said that Charlton were playing for a draw.
Replies
I thought that tonight's performance was really awful. So slow with so much side ways passing, and some of our passing was shocking, against a very moderate side. No quacking in their boots from Leeds, only laughing their little heads off watching our tame efforts. Here we were with a great chance of closing the gap on the top two, and we blow it once again, mind you Notts Forest also blew their chance of overtaking us as well tonight, so it's a case of no change but they still have a game in hand of us, so appalling as we were tonight, we are still in there with a great chance of a play off spot.
posted by A C (Guest) - Wednesday 22nd January 2020, 11:37 PM
 
It is possible we could be 6th after Saturday’s games. To much passing backward, no speed, we could hold up a sign to tell the opposition what we will do and let them get ready. When we took unexpected pot shots v Villa it worked, why not keep doing that.

One of the worst games I have seen for long time . Charlton delighted with point but for us two dropped . Parker says the team played with passion - not from where I stood . We had no pace or desire to hurt Charlton , so slow and even our usually good passing was off especially in second half . Plus was clean sheet and Hector . Based on what we have seen this season whoever goes up will be relegated by Xmas !
posted by Davidk (Guest) - Thursday 23rd January 2020, 8:32 AM
 
Davidk, I thoroughly agree with you, as this must be one of the poorest set of teams ever to form the Championship, and whoever goes up, whether it is us or another three hopefuls, they will face a swift return, unless they change their teams completely with big spends, although we proved last season that even that didn't work. Look at both Norwich and Villa this season, they looked like they had strong sides when being promoted last season, and a quick return for them is on the cards, and they will no doubt lose some of their best players. Providing that we retain the majority of our squad in the summer, and add a couple of strong Championship players, we should have a good chance of winning the league in 20/21.

SP played for a draw . Christie comes on at right back Odoi moves to left back Bryan is also playing left back ! what is going on . In the last minute MacDonald gives the ball away then fouls the player Ream duffs a short pass why are they so nervous we are not even top of the league and never likely to be . TC is a worry because he cant play on the left side of the pitch Cavaleiro got no service . All in all it would be an understatement to say we were mediocre not helped by the manager’s poor tactics .

It’s not TC. His role is to pick a pass, he needs players to make runs and move. De La Torre should come on and play wide, Onomah has no idea where to play in this system. We miss Knockaert.

The whole team are slow because we are set up too defensively. Nobody is making an effort to get in behind and every shot Bobby the decorator has had, has been straight at the keeper. Turgid game with crab football again and we are sorely missing a target man. Need to pick up the pace in the second half as Charlton are definitely beatable tonight and if we don’t I can see them nicking a goal and parking the bus.

Really looking forward to tonight's game. Based on our home game though I can see it being a really tough game that we will do well the get a point from.

Hopefully the Van Dyke (esque) Michael Hector will cooly sure up our defence and we will score two again without reply.

Nightmare place to get to by car so train from London Bridge looks favourite. Surprised it's not on Sky though.

Seems like we are serious about getting Mbenza from the Terriers and Gibson from Burnley. Don’t know much about both of them but a few clubs are interested. Are we getting ready for the big run in?. Another striker and another defender. That’s seems to make sense to me. Quite an impressive squad.

Thought Mbenza was a winger?

Tomorrow night, a 4 point gap could be a 1 point gap. I think most Fulham fans are feeling a tingle of excitement. I know we should be calm, but our season is getting interesting. We might feel a touch disappointed if we lose tomorrow. How do we deal with a loss now? No' change the record, we will not lose tomorrow, we are riding the crest of a wave and long may it continue...

Pep and other,managers are complaining that there is not enough time between matches for their players to fully recover. Must admit I felt that even before we kicked off again Boro we had an advantage as they had been involved in a a tough cup game just three days before. Are tv companies such as Sky, BT etc putting viewing figures above all else. Long gone are the days when footie meant a Saturday afternoon 3 o'clock KO! Sure you will have thoughts about this !
Replies
Could not agree more,the weekly chores rota always involved leaving Saturday afternoon free on match days,scarf your mum knitted around neck,rattle in hand clutching your programs and listening to the roar as the players came out of the tunnel, watching the half time scores manually put up on hoardings either end of the ground, often back to front or upside down, happy days

I posted the following a while ago but it is still relevant so will paraphrase my original post:

The EPL and EFL need a winter break to a) help prevent preventable injuries and b) give players time with their families at a precious time of year and c) reinstate the FA Cup as a flagship tournament with kudos to all that play in it.

If the last league game of the year was played on the last weekend before Christmas and the next game was the 3rd round of the FA cup, played on the second weekend in January then, I believe teams would not play second string or injury plagued teams in the FA Cup.

Lower league teams need the FA Cup and the League cup as revenue generators so scrapping replays would not work for me but playing the semis at a neutral ground like they used to be, returning the kick off to 3pm on a Saturday and banning all league games on the same day would also help.

Players are not machines and I don't hold with this train of thought that they are fit so should not get tired. They are human, the same as you and me; a little younger and fitter maybe but they have the same body parts and putting their bodies under undue stress will inevitably lead to injuries and sickness that could be preveted by a winter braek. Four games in a 10 day period is just madness in my opinion.

The likelihood is that we will lose to City on Saturday but a replay at the cottage would be fantastic for those fans that cannot make it to the council house and the game would almost certainly be televised so would be finacially acceptable to FFC. If that puts our next oponents at an unfair advantage so be it but I want FFC to be in as many competitions as is possible and at the end of the day it's the same for all clubs.....

David, you really need to see someone about you superiority complex, Your inferiority complex, your lack of a sense of humour and your inability to mix sensibly with your peers.

The most ironic thing though, is that you call people out for "so called" bullying (which it isn't by the way) yet the vast majority of your posts consist of made up nonsense about me and you very rarely (if ever) post about football matters or FFC.

I was always taught that if you don't like what you see then don't look at it then it is impossible to be offended by what is, let's face it, harmless high jinx to every single person who contributes to this board except you. When you point your index finger at someone David, your other three fingers are pointed back at yourself so maybe it's about timne you realised that it's you with the problem....

Gathering some momentum now and team much-improved from several weeks ago.

Badger, you’re right and you’re wrong. Parker has worked with team for YEARS, and it shouldn’t have taken him so many matches to realize the kind of impact KMac would have. The guy may run slow, but he reads the game fast, positioning and passing far better than a highly touted player like Seri. Plus, it’s a team game and TC and KMac complement each other really well, always have. Parker ought to have seen that. And our form has been much better with Odoi at RB or LB — which Parker was forced to do with Steven Sessegnon out injured. That said, the players are playing for him, Reed and recently Knockaert putting in shifts. Still not sure Onomah has won his spot over Arter or StefJo, but the kid is improving. So it’s really a mixed bag, can’t blame fans for pointing out the shortcomings.

Unless we completely lose our form, over the final games, we look destined for at least a place in the top 6, and therefore a play off spot, so who do wer reckon will be our main challengers. I see that Notts Forest won again today against Luton, and they are only a point behind us now, but have a home game against Reading in hand. Brentford can't be ruled out. Swansea are hanging on in there as well, and Millwall are coming with a strong run, so it looks like being a fight till the end to get to Wembley, that is of course if we don't get into an automatic place, which is doubtful, as we do tend to throw away some easy and unexpected points, as we all know.

The game at Charlton can't come soon enough, now we are clicking into gears at a rapid pace. I like our rapid start to the first half against Boro, it was good to watch. Yes, our intensity slackened off more so in the 2nd half and that is quite normal considering the circumstances. Our players are only human folks and even 10 Usain Bolt replicants would not be able to keep that pace and intensity up. Our only failings were that we didn't score more goals with those host of chances we had. We have to be happy to see the volume of chances created without Mitrovic and Kamara as target men. Who needs Kamara, one might say? Or Josh Onomah, or Tom Cairney? etc. Guy's' we have bodies, surplus to requirements you might say? There are a host of teams from the prem to the Championships that are desperate and crying out for players because of injuries. We have ammo, we are blessed! Now it looks like we have finally found a missing piece of jigsaw in our defence by the name of Hector, we can all breathe a sigh of relief at long last. Too soon i might hear? Didn't you feel a little more secure with our extra insurance policy doing his guard duty around the Cottage? If and when i buy a mutt, i am calling him Hector-Churchill-Van-Dyke. If you see a guy around the Cottage in a AK-47 Fulham shirt, and straining a bulldog at the leash, you will know it's me!!! They should let me in Craven Cottage free of charge for my intelligence. Anyway, back to the football. I want to give Tom Cairney a shout up again because he wasn't quite fit. At age 28 this kid has still got his best years in front of him. I know he is too quiet for captain material but who care's? A properly fit Cairney on Weds night will be chomping at the bit to get in on a piece of the action. We can't have Hector hogging all the limelite, i feel others along with Cairney will want a slice of the goodstuff too. Hey' we can cake-walk this division, and i think our players know this now. COME ON YE FULHAM!!!! (Er' still eating humble pie)...

That means if things go belly-up, 'er' we just eat some more humble pie, so i can't lose really in the grand scheme. I can take it on the chin mate! Anyway, first or 2nd spot is now warming for Fulham and i am whistling dixie!!!!!!!

There is a sense of if you have an opinion different to the bullies, you’re not a Fulham fan and most likely a Brentford fan. Unfortunately the moderators (one in particular) are divisive figures themselves and have allowed for this community to be split in 2 by failing to moderate effectively. I regularly have my posts deleted by one moderator in particular and he treats this like his private message board and will not allow anyone to be critical of him.

Hi Baz. Agreed. I like and respect wht you write on here so apologies for the ambuguity. Didn’t want to single MST out as I get deleted every time I do.. fact is that he is a homophobe and allowed it to take place on this website as well as joining in. I cannot sit by and let that slide. As strongly as you and I feel about racism, I feel about homophobia.if I have to step on a few toes to make sure he doesn’t get away with it, so be it. There is no place for homophobia anywhere so this message board is no different - the clubs offical stance is in line with my thoughts. You’d get a lifetime ban on the stands. Anyway, again apologies not aimed at you - poorly phrased in fear of the lord and saviour hitting that delete button.

He played in the premier league - not quite good enough. He played in the Scottish league - did ok but if Defoe at the age of 36 can still look good say something about the league. Played in Italy - didn’t quite make it. Now playing in the championship - decent skills but too light and no end product!! He’s running out of options and he’s contract at Man City probably expiring soon if not this season. He could do well in China!

Tom Cairney is not done yet, i still think he will have a big say in our remaining fixtures. He can still pass a ball through the eye of a needle, this is what separates him from the chaff. O' Reilly is not the finished article yet and can learn something from Cairney in my opinion. The Khans will have got his contract seriously wrong and were too generous with Cairney? If so, my theory is wrong and doesn't stand up. The only mistake they made with Cairney, is to make him captain. Cairney is too quiet a character to make him captain material. I still hold on to the theory that athletes mature around 28 ish going on 30, so if that holds up, Cairney's best years are yet to come...

I thought it was clever the way our players were changing positions when we were attacking, Knockaert and Cav both on the same wing, left space for Bryan to cross. Bobby Reid is very energetic and chases everything down. Will he be playing alongside, or just behind Mitro? Also fair play to K Mac, kept going and Cairney looks comfortable when he is playing. Certain games that K Mac will play in and certain games he will come on as sub. Great squad man to have.
Replies
Well said Gaz, but results show since K Mac has been playing again and providing the shield, goals against have dried up, Parkers current game plan of passing game from the back also really needs K Mac as the link. Hector getting all the plaudits slightly unfair.
posted by denny (Guest) - Saturday 18th January 2020, 12:07 PM
 
I think Hector was outstanding, part of his great performance was enhanced by having K Mac in front of him, Knockheart covering the flanks, Cav covering the flanks and Bobby Reid pressing high. As far as plaudits are concerned the whole team deserve the plaudits and that includes the coaching staff. Well done Fulham.

Was well pleased with last nights performance, it shows that SP is definitely learning and that the owners have been made aware of what he wants. The biggest worry was that we seemed to not be learning or evolving same old mistakes!,,,, It seems the simple addition of Hector has made a world of difference in the defence, with simple leadership which with been missing badly. I think the vast majority have wanted SP to do well but couldn’t see any progress which seems to be coming the team looks balanced and working for each other. Mistakes will always happen but to constantly make the same errors was the problem. Progress at last COYWs

If we can stay consistent and play some of the amazing football that we played last night, we can easily make up 5/6 points on Leeds. with injuries and jaded legs, The team with the largest and best squad tend to come through in the second half the season. We have the best squad. We almost caught Cardiff who were more than ten points ahead a couple of seasons ago, and they didn’t collapse. So it’s down to us!! let’s keep the consistency! Coyw

I cannot agree with one of the papers rating of Tom Cairney.They give him 7,which i think is extremely generous.I think he was a drag on the team,and as he was subed ,it is fair to say so did Parker.He was woefully of the pace ,and still insists on "crab" football.In my opinion 4 would have been about right.

posted by Nick (Guest) - Saturday 18th January 2020, 6:08 AM
 
A drag on the team? Did you miss the fluidity of the first 45 minutes? TC switched the ball to Bryan which enabled the cross and tap in. He and KMac have a great understanding and they were picking the right pass every time. I think his legs weren’t fully there, but distribution was superb. Reminded me of what we saw under Slavisa.

Myself, and those around me were talking at half time who we thought would get the MOTM so far, and we nearly all agreed it would be TC, as we thought that he was having a cracking game, but then things fell away in the second half, and he was rightly subbed. The feeling was that he was still not fully fit, and it was probably arranged at HT, that he would come off before the end. TC, at his best is an important part of the way that we play, and long may he continue.

This guy is pure class without even trying. Hector does not do anything flash and he is always in the right place at the right time. Odoi had a good game at left-back because Hector is more reliable than the man from the pru, he is the missing link in our squad. I was almost panicking when Maswson came on late,he usually makes a customary mistake, but we were good! I am in love with wingers and wing-backs again and this is all down to Hector. Mawson before Hector was like the wrong final jigsaw piece that we thought would fit into place but part of the wrong jigsaw. It is almost funny on how long it takes before the penny drops at Fulham and the reasons why we were so disjointed. Take Hector out of the picture, and we sure would have conceded and wingback Joe Bryan and Odoi would have been slated. Now, i enjoy these 2 guy's bombing forward and bringing more danger into our game. Odoi was unlucky with that marginal offside and he really deserved that goal ruled out. Guy's' i know a lot of fans will be saying, i told you so about Joe Bryan etc, but the truth is we originally drafted in Alfie Mawson to do the job that Hector does, and we looked disjointed and all over the place for a long time now. Our people upstairs must take some flack for their recruitment. We always take the scenic rout around recruitment for a long while now. No doubt that the Khans will take all the brownie points for Hector. My question is, why it has taken Fulham this long to solve a simple jigsaw. Hail our King Hector!!!! 4 points off the Leeds and West Brom guy's. Can we win this automatic promotion? BY HEC-TOR-WE-CAN!!!!!!
Replies
Just read this after replying below. We have basically said the same thing. Hector is my new favourite player and has solved all of our problems. Bryan was excellent today and our wingers look to be hitting form. Interesting to see how fluid the attacking positions were without mitro. Cairney was the weak link. Always looking to pass backwards.
posted by David (Guest) - Friday 17th January 2020, 11:15 PM
 
Great minds think alike David. I think Cairney needs a game or two to get back into the swing. He isn't far off, Cairney made a peach of a pass to Reidy i think? who should have scored. Mitro will be drooling over those missed chances tonight. I say we have the best squad in this division more than ever now...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Friday 17th January 2020, 11:27 PM
 
You are right about the pass but he does look off the boil. Still hellbent in shipping out Christie and bringing in a new RB. Odoi is decent cover there. But if our defence is as sorted as we think with Hector then I agree about the squad. The attacking half has never been in doubt and looks like Parker night finally be using our wingers properly.

What a win that was tonight, as we played as well as ever in the first half and stoutly in defence in the second half, but I suppose that it was a shade disappointing that we only managed a one goal win. It's q1uite amazing what a difference Hector had made to our defence, as he not only plays well, but he seems to have brought out more guts to the rest of the defence, and to be fair Rodak was never ever tested, which was remarkable against such an in form team, and had won 2-0 at WBA recently. On wards and possibly upwards now.

As mentioned before playing three games over a week or 8 days lots of points up for grab s if we have a good day today think Leeds 5 points adrift looking over their shoulders !

I watched the game again last night, we were really good in parts, not being critical about the side but we have developed a trait of taking our foot off the pedal when we are in front. We always give the opposition a life line, the only difference is that we now have a defender who knows how to defend. TC is not fit and he was not at his best last night, but looking back at the game the boy Can really see a pass, he is not a combative midfielder but if our wide players are not constantly having to cover a weak defence I am sure TC would find them. Maybe the armband is taking its toll on his game. One thing I noticed last night was The post match interview, Hector was spotlessly clean . He looks like he has based his game on Van Dyke style of play, really impressive. When the new guy gets into the team we should be even stronger. Let’s not over do it about the result ,we will make mistakes now and then so let’s not slaughter the team if it does happen. We are close to getting a strong squad and we would worry any team in the division.

Gaz' i agree that we have a tendency to take our foot off the gas, but i also think it is only natural after all the intensity of the game. We were pressing and pressing and i could not believe how many chances we were creating. To be honest, we should have been 4 or 5 goals up in the first half and this conversation would have been so different. I was actually scared for us 2nd half. How many Fulham fans are comfortable on sitting on a 1 nil? The strangest thing about this game against Boro, was the quiet assurance of a feeling that we wouldn't buckle under any pressure. We just soaked up everything last night and Hector is the difference. We finally have a star defender among us and one that does the simple things and he doesn't stand out. Hector is our missing piece of our jigsaw...

WELL DONE FULHAM... DECENT PERFORMANCE TONIGHT AND THE BETTER TEAM WON. COULD HAVE BEEN OUT OF SIGHT BY HALF TIME WITH NUMBER OF CHANCES CREATED ...MITRO WOULD HAVE ADDED TO HIS GOAL TALLY FOR SURE. NEVERTHELESS PRETTY GOOD TEAM PERFORMANCE AND SIGNS OF OUR DEFENCE TIGHTENING UP (AFTER LEAKING GOALS FOR FUN AT BEGINNING OF SEASON!) NEW PERSONNEL HAS MADE A DIFFERENCE AND MAYBE COUPLE MORE NEW FACES YET TO APPEAR. ALSO SHOWING SIGNS OF MORE CHARACTER IN GRINDING OUT RESULTS. JUST 4 POINTS BEHIND LEEDS NOW AND BAGS/WBA GOING OFF BOIL A BIT TOO! ...GLASS THREE QUARTERS FULL OR WHAT! ...C’MON YA WHITES!!

First twenty minutes amazing, Mitro would have got a handful if he was playing. Hector MOM for me with Bobby Reid close. With a full squad to pick from we could beat any team in the division. As a non Parker fan I must say that if we could play like the first twenty I would be delighted for him. All in all three points. We have not played well and got a result from a few games this season. Play bad and win is better than play well and lose.

I’ll Take a slice of that humble pie too. Excellent performance all round. Even Onomah (bar the header). Hector is an absolute class act and made our whole defence look more comfortable. Dare a say, the missing piece of the jigsaw. Still very sceptical of Parker but feel he may finally be getting things right. Maybe mitro forces us to be less dynamic and actually we have a attack that can run riot and swap positions without him (still Think he is a key player for us). Passing football finally looked attacking too. Let’s get a right back in and win the league.

Some humble pie for me too. Not sure if we need too many more bodies in yet? If we recruit, we need to ship out also. This squad should be almost ready and primed to win this league firstly, then the real recruitment centered around Hector. We can build around this guy...

If mito was in the team we would not have been playing such good football he brings the team down. He has to go Mito's for hire your defence ain't terrified Mito's for hire la la la la la la la

Can’t agree. Any player who is top scorer in the league should be first in the team sheet. SP needs to learn how to use him with a good attack around him.

Great 3 points, excellent football I'm sure mitrovic would of had a hat full tonight. I'm just very happy we weren't robbed at the end. Knockaerrt and reeds work rate also cab chasing down ball defending everything. Must be knackered after that. We should of had more but we got a win main thing. Closer to the top 2

3 great points. Shame we made our lives so difficult as it should have been over by half time. Nevertheless, great not to concede. Lots of positive to take, above all the win

How many more chances are we going to have to put this game to bed? Middlesbrough need one goal to steal a point, surely this can’t happen.

Hi are there any Fulham fans in the Bournemouth area? It would be great to hear of any local fans, particularly any who travel to home games as it sometimes feels like I’m the only one down here - never seen any on my train!
