Take into consideration 6 or more players picked for international duty and include travel which adds up to fatigue is no excuse turning in a lackluster performance for your club but it is what it is and we can put that behind us now. I am amazed about the number of players picked for international duty from our Fulham team but there you go, we have to live and work with the situation. We are like a mechanical clock out of sync and the wheels have temporarily fallen off the wagon. We need impact players like Harry Wilson and Carvalho on the pitch to take the load off Mitrovic and i hope they are available for the game against Bristol? Are we that bad and short of quality? The pundits say we have quality in abundance but some of us doubt it? The fact is that it is a pointless exercise to gee up and big up our players because we are losing to lowly and inferior opposition. In my opinion, it looks like our form will continually be disrupted by the internationals because we have so much talent within our squad deemed worthy to play at such dizzy heights apparently, we just have to live with it and suck it up. We are not Liverpool who can afford the luxury of replacing squad rotation and maintain form. We are Fulham in the Championship and we should know our place and accept our success and failings. Klopp has heap praises on Brentford and their prem exploits so far so good. Thomas Frank has got them playing in a system that is getting results and they have the next york and cole combination who can strike fear into prem opposition according to Thomas Frank? We need to put up and shut up and roll our sleeves up now, so no amount of bigging up or overhyping our underperforming lot is needed by me. Remember though, internationals will peg us back a few notches, but we will bounce back fighting eventually in my opinion. This is the norm concerning Fulham and international breaks. Nuff said!

Watching QPR tonight, I noticed that QPR, had a rare specime playing for them, which was a white male player without a beard or a tattoo. Since when has that been allowed ? ! !
Replies
Tomorrows game worries me, I somehow feel that the players believe in their own hype of invincibility, or they have been reading to many of Owens articles. The manager must, and I am sure he will install in the team the word graft, and if they should fall short, a good b.......g would not go amiss.

Although scoring some goals I still believe that Mitro over 90min is little more than a passenger, Stansfield should be given his chance, only my opinion, so hopefully the Mitro fan club does not get to hysterical.

It just shows how annoying our defeat against Reading was, as we can't afford to throw away silly points against far inferior opposition. We have lost to the two worst teams that we have played this season, and I know we will say that this is Fulhamish, but these Fulhamish results must stop, starting tomorrow. WBA won tonight, but quite frankly they didn't look very good, and I am loath to say it, but QPR, looked the far better team until their keeper gave away a howler of an own goal, and they could by the end of the season play their way into a play off spot. Hopefully we will already be promoted by then.

In which season did Fulham first play in the Football League? Who did Fulham beat in the 1963-64 season, to set the record for their biggest League victory? What was the score of the 1957-58 FA Cup semi-final replay, against Manchester United? Who scored Fulham’s three Premier League Hat-Tricks? Who scored the final goal at Craven Cottage before the first lockdown hit? Which player paid tribute to the late Papa Bouba Diop by lifting his Senegal jersey in celebration against Leicester City? How much did QPR pay for Rodney Marsh in 1967?

Re Rodney Marsh , they paid nothing in 1967 because , I think , he moved to qphaha in 1966 , as for the fee , not sure , but guessing around £15,000 .

Mrs O'Doors may have to take in washing again if it carries on, although Mount Mogan in the 3:15 at Haydock tomorrow could be interesting. I'd usually back Call Me Ginger but it's won a few times recently and being a Fulham supporter I naturally shy away from success.

What a relief losing to Leeds last night was, as we would have been away to Arsenal in the next round, where we have been almost obliged to field a stronger side, with a possibility of unnecessary injuries, so promotion is far more important, where we would be back playing sides like Arsenal and Leeds on a weekly basis. Saying that, one of the biggest draw backs next season will be the interruption of the Premier League in the middle of the season, to accommodate the World Cup fixtures, and will effect the lesser clubs such as ourselves, who will be losing many of our squad to play in this tournament. To many other as well, this competition will be absolute chaos.

Don't agree about going through to play Arsenal. Last season, we didn't realize we weren't good enough until we'd lost the first load of games. If you play premier teams now, you can see where we are now. The more Premier teams we meet, the better.

Mawson and Rodak in particular looked solid . OK both sides played numerous fringe players but over 90 minutes there was little difference between the teams . Interesting seeing Boa Morte having a real go at Knockhaert who continues to disappoint in virtually every way - crossing , contribution , so many misplaced passes , total liability . End result we got beat , but the performance was good . Grudging praise for the Leeds fans , 50% of the crowd and wall of noise and support .
Replies
Spot on ..although Leeds had 7 starters from the Newcastle game ..and we had 11 changes …impressive support from Leeds ,we could do with a bit of that ..
posted by Markrightback (Guest) - Wednesday 22nd September 2021, 4:44 PM
 
So our second 11 was as good as what was nearly Leeds first team, makes the performance even more remarkable and a tribute to what Silva has achieved in his short time as manager.

A quiz question how much weight has Christie put on since he last played for us?

There's just no pleasing some people. A second string Fulham team with 11 changes from Saturday held a Leeds (pretty much) first team selection for 90 minutes. A Leeds team that have been head and shoulders above Fulham in playing staff, management, endeavour, application and results for the past two seasons and still people aren't happy.

What I am seeing is a vast improvement on Parkerball with brave attacking and exciting football that is a pleasure to watch for a change. With a new manager, new coaching staff, new tactics and some quality new players (still to bed in) there are bound to be some glitches along the way but we WILL be in the Prem next year and I (at least) WILL enjoy getting there.

Cheer up for crying out loud; we lost narrowly on penalties to an established Prem team and we are second in the table with five wins and a draw from eight games with a plus goal difference of 11.

Get over yourselves and calm your skin as someone on this board used to write many years ago!

I like the fluid attacking style. I like the reanimated Mitro and Seri. But there have been some strange choices? Playing Robinson straight after the international break, not Bryan. Not starting the shootout with Neeskens. And not to have Bobby Reid in the first five? Was anyone surprised Onomah missed? He hasn’t been exposed to pressure like that. Sorry to see the team go out.
Replies
If Onomah had hit his shot 2" lower it would have been a brilliant goal.

I enjoyed the game tonight, thought we would get hammered when I saw the team sheets but the lads tried hard. Not impressed by Christie and Knockhaert. Mawson was outstanding and played the captains role really well. We must give Muniz a chance and I’m sure Silva knew he wasn’t strong on pens hence not in the first five. He certainly chased the ball when Leeds had it at the back, he needs time so we need to give him a break. Joe Bryan’s pen was rubbish but sh*t happens. Must say the new stand looks quality. Our fans got out sung by Leeds, perhaps we should work on that as well.

If you had walked into that game not knowing who the competitors you would not know the two teams were from different divisions. A penalty competition is just a lottery, if Josh's shot was 2" lower it would have gone in, if Muniz had hit his shot a little harder it would have gone in. Hope that does not demotivate Muniz as he played well. I hope Harrisons injury is not serious as he is so important to our success.

Your question got me thinking about penalty shootouts. Over the last 22 years We have won three and lost four but the main one I remember is the Leicester quarter final when we were 2-0 up and 3-2 up at filbert street and got taken to a shootout in which all 3 of our takers missed. Strangely I don’t remember any shoot outs where we have won, last one was wolves fa cup 3rd round 2015 but I’ve had to look all this up. Never been in a shoot out to win a competition I guess so hasn’t stuck in the brain

I’m sure Silva will give a chance for those on the outside looking in...gotta be opportunities for a “second X1” back 5 - Marek, Cyrus, Joe B, Mawson, Hector, and up front Jay and hot Rod Muniz. Midfield is a myriad of options. I’d expect 9 or 10 changes from the Reading debacle. Bring it on.

No one's bigger than the club and he's getting far too much publicity. ( When he gets subbed, you might have to change his nappy)!

Pull him off if he sucks? Brings a new and complicated visual to the concept of positional play and long balls over the top.

Marek will obviously get a run out tonight but is it time that Paulo was dropped for league games as well to add a little competition to the position?

You could say that Gazza has only conceded seven goals, that his distribution is superior to Marek (although that has also been poor on occasion with misplaced passes putting us under pressure) and that he does have a worldy in him but I'm sure some of us are having kittens when he tries, unsuccessfully, to dominate the six yard box with his trade mark flapping at crosses he is nowhere near.

Rodders on the other hand also has a worldy in him, also struggles to dominate the box at times but in my opinion has better positional sense and quicker reactions than Gazza. Marek's distribution though is very poor and he takes too long to release the ball preventing quick counter attacks.

Combined, their attributes would make a very good keeper but they both have weaknesses that make our last line of defence suspect at times.

My personal view is that we persevere with Gazza in the league until Christmas to see if form and consistency can be improved unless a howler loses us an important game of course. He has, after all, got top flight and Champions league experience that should (eventually) stand him in good stead.

Views?

Got to give him a chance to settle in. I seem to remember Brede Hangeland being described as 'bambi on ice' when first signed. Different positions but you get the idea.

Rodak for me, more athletic and a greater positional sense, Gazza appears to be turning out another "Dracula"

As you know if you look on the BBC Sport Website at the fixtures the Championship fixtures are listed beneath the Scottish Premiership fixtures. Now the men’s EFL cup fixtures for Tuesday are listed underneath the Women’s World Cup qualifying fixtures.

Women’s football is inferior to men’s football so shouldn’t take precedence over the men’s game “ Women’s World Cup” or not. Women will be getting the same prize money as men at Wimbledon next for playing less sets than the men. Oh what they already do that’s inequality for you right there. Don’t get me wrong I like Women I’ve got one as a wife one as my secretary and one as my cleaner come to think of it even our Gardner is a woman. When I meet someone new and ask them if they are football fans and who their team is I now ask if they are fans of the women’s or men’s team of their favourite club it always gets a laugh and the answer of course is always the men’s. Apparently Fulham have a women’s team not that I’m the slightest bit interested in them and can honestly say I couldn’t name one of them. I don’t care if women want to play football but let’s not pretend it’s equal to men’s football and should never take precedence over the men’s game.

Why can't the BBC have a Women's football section that you can access by clicking on specifically to see news about the Women's game if thats what you want to see, it's superfluous to put women football fixtures in with the mens football fixtures and especially to take precedence over the mens fixtures, it is only done for PC reasons and as we know the BBC are just a PC corrupt organisation as is proved by employing June Sarpong on two hundred and seventy six thousand pounds a year as a diversity champion for a three day week, more than the director general of the BBC and the Prime minister of our country.

Why are you all focusing on the woman's football part of the above post? BH also mentions that Scottish Premiership fixtures are listed above Championship fixtures. Why not take the post as a whole rather than just focus on one part that polarises the views of those awaiting offence with catcher's mitt on hand!?

He says he needs to tweak the team, I say he needs to tweak the result and aim for a win and maybe have to accept a draw. Our defence is still our weak link, we have not replaced the excellent Andersen and have missed signing a horde or half decent centre halves with Premiership experience. You have to have a solid defence to win anything in football, build from the back. I did not need Mr Brain Clough to tell me that. Our team would have been far better with a tried and tested CB like Dan Burn, James Chester,Johnny Evans or Gary Cahill as they have the experience we have lacked over the last six seasons.

Fulham, Bournemouth, or Sheff Utd/ first 2nd or 3rd in this particular order preferably. Is it just me thinking like this? Like it or not, Parker and Slavisa will be on our case and it sure looks like a topsy-turvy season where we swop places from time to time. Anyone with ideas to forget what Parker or Slavisa does is fruitless. We have history and like it or lump it, we will be looking over our shoulders at each other this season. Interesting isn't it?

Rodak without doubt. Mawson for Ream, let’s hope permanently, and Hector to give Tosin a day off. Give Bryan a game, even at RB. Muniz needs a start (give Mitro a rest) with Stansfield alongside. Those Watford boys need a workout also. Give Seri the elbow for this one.
Replies
To give Mitro a rest for the game against Leeds is sound advice, Simon. I also think that all on international duty should have a break also. The combination of the internationals and Birmingham, in particular, has taken the zip out of our boys. The time difference and travel back is also a consideration. Many fans don't see the dynamics of any of this and expect peak performance 24/7 from footballers in general so we know nothing. Roll on the next game and see if we can pick up? Not sure i want the cup game against Leeds now though?

Replies
It may be time to try Rodak in goal as the saveable goals we conceded was a demoralising factor. Ream was so angry with the keeper after the first one. When he started he looked good but he is making lots of mistakes. Wilson and Reid had been told to keep on their wings and not cut in, we lost a lot of our scoring power with that move. We looked dangerous with two up front, I know nobody plays that way anymore but in the Championship is it not worth trying for a few games.

I’m not so sure it’s the case they wanted it more than us I think they had about two chances and scored we had more than enough to win the game but our finishing was not just there. On a positive note I thought Muniz looked quite good when he came on his first touch looked good and I think him and Mitro will be a good combination for us throughout the season.credit to Reading they were well organised and looked solid and there keeper made a few good saves. Keep the faith

Just one of them days if we had taken the early chance would have made a difference they had two chances on goal from memory. ( probably more ) think the back pass was one of there best chances Bristol Saturday Reid going back to his old club think it’s first in our colours expect us to WIN 3- 1 mitro to score. Reid to score. If selected not a must win game yet It’s a rather not lose game !! Love this league in a 7 day period the table can fluctuate so much my opinion is we could and should have had six points more

He is no longer our manager.So why not just forget him and concentrate on the current manager and team.In other words why not forget commentating on the previous incumbent.

Because a lot of people wanted him gone and a lot wanted him to stay. Those who wanted him gone insisted that he was useless and that any replacement would be the answer. Meanwhile, he's currently top of the table.

Parker has a proven record of getting out the Championship, Silva has no record at all. We are struggling with Silva already in a league we should walk. No excuses at all for losing to Blackpool and Reading.

We lost a game ….we aren’t struggling …and Parker isn’t our manager anymore …

Parker managed to get a team good enough to win the Championship at a canter to scrape through the playoffs. In the PL he was not willing to change his negative tactics even though they were getting us relegated. He is a poor manager and we were well rid of him. He is also English which means something in his DNA prevents him being a good manager.

Yesterday was a fluke result we created enough chances to win 3 matches and were very unlucky.
posted by The Time Is Now - Sunday 19th September 2021, 8:26 AM
 
Please don't start to panic just yet, as although I was very disappointed about yesterday's result, if you look back at the last time we gained promotion, we actually lost 6 home games, including 0-3 results against both Hull and Barnsley, and we lost our 3rd home game of that season against Notts Forest. It is also interesting to see that we only lost 5 games away from home during that season. I don't know Norwich or Watford's home records for last season, or even Brentfords to see how many home defeats they had when gaining promotion but I bet it was more than a couple. What we have got to do is come straight back in our next game, and I don't mean Leeds, as that will be an almost reserve game for both sides, I mean Bristol City, who are pretty hopeless at home, and then when we follow with games against Swansea at home, and Coventry away and then QPR at home, so we should be back on track by then. We must have faith in Marco otherwise all is lost.

Personally in our last prem season for various reasons think we got of to a bad start lack of finance for a couple of defenders manager at time hands tied by the time we got some sort of team. 10 games had gone by no majority on here don’t like to here it but Bournemouth looking good as are we think we will both be promoted got them both to do so in various bet ( pre season ) laid before our ex manager left to go there

Reading’s first goal was class and their keepers last minute save was world class. We lacked desire, speed and the ability to convert chances. It’s a game we should have won but Reading were worth the win. Our team needs to wake up, they need to play well to win and can’t rely on reputation. Our defence was weak and strikers casual. Coaches need to do their work

A decent keeper would have saved both of Readings goals.

Not the first. I was right behind it. Class curling shot. Our defenders shouldn’t have let him run. Their free kick was only just wide as well. End to end. They finished better than us.

We really have to think about Cav, Ream, Gazza and other players in this squad. We were terrible from the kick off. Cav is useless and we still have him in the side. He has had so many chances to prove he is a good player but he has no idea how to be effective. We have posters on here that spew out how good we are (Owen) and give their opinions by watching highlights, these people never go and see in real time how bad we were, so they should go and watch ninety minutes before they post long winded rubbish. This is a tough division and to be promoted we need consistency, which we do not have. We seem that we are reliant on an eighteen year old boy to give us success. We do not have the next Pele (Owen), we do not have the best midfielder in Seri (Owen) and Kamara was not a potential great (Owen). I still think we will be promoted if Silva gets a fit squad to select. Let’s not keep posting how good we are (Owen) until we get on a run instead of watching two minutes of Quest.
Replies
Exactly my thoughts GAZ as said on another post we are obsessed with the hype others are placing on our team, do we have a boy wonder ,most likely but he will probably be gone in jan. Owen shut up about our wonderful team, "wonderful" at best mediocre, and that equates to mid table.
posted by Kunye (Guest) - Saturday 18th September 2021, 9:53 PM
 
Parker will do absolutely nothing a million times! Are you sure about that? Seri i still think is the best midfield holding player in this league, over a season or i will eat my words. We will see about Muniz. Not enough game-time to prove anything yet. I still say that the internationals and travels have and still is having an impact on Mitrovic and co. The players involved have clocked up plenty of mileage on the pitch and travel. But hey' i am not an expert or a docter. Maybe Seri is as rubbish as Kamara? We will see about that one over a season. Maybe the so-called experts have got it wrong about Fulham? Or Bournemouth? Or Scott Parker? Maybe nobody should say nothing here?

Didn't get to see today but the result brings back memories of previous years when we kept tripping up over Reading, still they're only 2 games out of 46. Still where we need to be.
Replies
Three games in seven days!Two hard away games. Birmingham were knackered today and lost cos we run them ragged. The TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY issue gave Reading and Peterborough the advantage. The Tuesday teams all had more legs and got better results including Bournemouth. Arguably Harrison injury left back four more exposed without his added cover. Just my thoughts!
posted by Tony R (Guest) - Saturday 18th September 2021, 7:34 PM
 
We missed a hatful of chances, had three decent penalty claims turned down and our keeper let in two goals he would have saved on another day. I am not worried it was not like Blackpool we played well but missed good chances and should have won comfortably.

Unfortunately didn’t see the game today, but having seen the performance in the week am really disappointed at the result. Having seen the quality of the football we played can’t really understand how we could have lost. I guess a really on song team can adapt and take on all comers, on the pitch as well as on the training sessions. We definitely seem, at this stage, to have a bit of a soft underbelly. We can all play like champions if there’s no opposition, seems we could benefit from a captain in the Mullery/ Gerrard mould. A bit more flexibility and pro activity needed.

posted by Hodds Sutton (Guest) - Saturday 18th September 2021, 10:06 PM
 
I will go with Tony R's summing up because it makes more sense! 3 games in 7 days yadder/yadder/ plus add on internationals not long back, is the most likely reason why we lost? Didn't the so-called experts right in saying that we had more than enough chances to win against Reading or they all talk bull-c..p? Also maybe Mitrovic isn't quite at his sharpest after internationals? He never is until into a few games. Maybe Silva should have played Muniz a lot earlier into the game? Marco Silva is learning fast about our limitations, especially after internationals me-thinks. Some people say shut up Owen but 'talk' about Scott Parker constantly on here can also backfire. How is it going to look if Bournemouth and Sheff utd with Slavisa, and Fulham flip-flop in first sec and third before the season ends? There will be more than one person embarrassed on this site. You all know who you are! Bournemouth will do absolutely nothing with rubbish Parker? Are you guys sure about that theory? Your theories and i told you so, can also go south...

Dead serious Nosey. Beginning of every month through December we’ll have up to ten traveling the world to play three matches in a week. We have a bunch of mid weeks in the league as well. African cup in January will see us lose a couple more. Having the best squad by miles may prove to be our undoing with the ramped up World Cup qualifiers. They will get no rest and it is completely impossible for the human body to sustain that level of activity. You can already see it out there. They look completely knackstest.

Would like to say I’m sorry about derby financial problems but I’m not got a long memory
Replies
It's a tough one to take and the blame is for sure on the Chairman Morris. Gary Nevil summed it up nicely on sky sports this morning. In the pursuit for prem league status, smaller clubs need to strike a balance and be mindful that loans and transfers of players need to be in line with affordability etc if that makes sense? I am not the best at explaining these things. In Fulhams defense we have the comfort of parachute payments to balance the books and dare i say, sensible owners that have not gone too far over the top in our quest for prem league status. Morris is Derby born and bred and a self-made millionaire who has put millions into Derby, but now he wants to bail out and still get back what he put in originally? Club investments by enthusiastic and boyhood fans should go into these adventures knowing that you will lose money full stop. I think that Aston Villa were quite astute and they go a long way to balance their books by selling Jack Grealish. Villa have over-spent much more than Fulham in their persuit of prem status but the Grealish sale to City will do for now to balance their finances. I would say that Villa need prem status and woe betide them if they succumb to the drop back into the Championship. We at Fulham are in a good place...

Anyone watched the Birmingham game will see that we are no longer the one dimensional team that has haunt us in the last few years! I have to give credit to Marco Silva and his team. They have obviously done their homework on Bham and sussed them out that they are a physically strong team, the are fit, they like to pressure team but they can also be exposed at the back and their defenders are not quick quick. With that, Marco despite having a much better team and probably can still keep the ball for 60% or more of the play, decided to play counter football instead. Let them do what they normally do and run to the ground, stay solid at the back and counter. Not always the pretty football we used to this season but it was damn effective. So it really shows to me we can play in different ways. I shall look forward to the tactics Marco deploy today. Coyw

The last time the Thames froze over was more than 150yrs ago, how bloody old are you

It was a bit tongue in cheek Bro , apparently the sun is getting closer to the earth about 2 metres a year so eventually we will melt . Just our luck it will be the year we get promoted !!

Climate change has been happening since the planet was created. Nothing anyone can do about it. Back in the day people would move somewhere more temperate when it got too hot/cold where they were. Not an option now. Afraid we're all doomed. Won't affect us old farts on here. Should be fun for the grandkids though.

Of course they could take a tip from the police back in gods own country and liven up the Extinky Rebellion dimwits by letting off a few baton rounds. They'd probably whinge about being hit by plastic though so perhaps carrots would be better.

It is a mystery to me why some Fulham fans think that we will struggle for results back in the prem. Are you watching Newcastle Leeds tonight? Convince me that these 2 teams are prem quality. I really think that we would pick up points from bottom 10 and some surprisingly favourable results from the top half. Too many draws from 'Parker-ball' and penalty misses cost us our prem spot. Mitrovic is thriving once again in the Championship because we have an abundance of impact players like Wilson and Carvalho etc who can and are taking the headlines with goal contributions. Chalobah looks a box of tricks around the penalty area and we should encourage him to get more creative in those areas in particular. At home tomorrow and with the contribution of Chalobah, Wilson, and Carvalho if fit, will do the business for Fulham never mind Mitrovic. The balance of this Fulham side is really good and i wouldn't worry about going back to the prem. We obviously would need a few additions better than Ream and Odoi but otherwise, we are good. I had to leave the best till last and the best is 'Seri' who in my opinion is our best holding player for a very long time in waiting. Do you hear me Kunye? Did you see our last goal in the 4-1 against Birmingham? We need to talk this guy up and encourage him to stay because he is that good. It would be nice if MT alius MST show some love for Seri our greatest holding player for a long time. It would be nice to see Kebano get in on the party with a goal because he deserves too. We are over the ghastly internationals now and it is back to business, so feist your eyes on Fulham and enjoy a goal fest. No prediction needed other than lots of goals from Fulham. 'Bigboy' get the jelly and icecream out' and sit back and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!

I totally agree, player who looked ordinary under Parker look terrific now. What a difference a good manager makes. A proper manager who chooses the tactics for the situation, motivates the players, helps the buying department to sign the right people and is able to change the team without it really noticing. Up to now Siva is doing a fantastic job.

The standard of the league this season is appalling especially when compared with previous seasons. No excuse if we don’t win the league for lots of reasons. So, yes would expect a good win today, nothing less is acceptable.

Good morning all. As an avid Fulham supporter since 1945, and being an ex season ticket holder, and on many many occasions an away travelling fan as well, but because of health reasons I am no longer, regretfully able to go to CC to watch my team. However, I do follow our club, by watching the highlights, and even the 90 minute recordings of our matches on the Official Fulham website, plus all of the interviews covered. That was until this week, as when I tried to use this site, all I am getting is a padlock in the middle, which has stopped my viewing. Despite Emailing the club, and even getting some very unhelpful replies, they have still not told me how to rectify this problem, even though, I am willing to pay whatever it costs for this service. May I ask if anybody else, is having this same problem, and if so, what do I have to do, to get back in to watch everything as I have done in the past.

Just for the record, I am not necessarily being critical of Owen and anyone who has read my previous posts will know that I am his strongest supporter. An erudite gentleman who entertains us with his flowing prose which are informative, punchy, and interesting. Strong opinions, often wrong, but containing interesting theories which always manage to elicit responses from friend and foe. Carry on as you have established yourself as a much loved contributor who never, to my knowledge, said a bad word about anyone.

Think Grealish was to Villa what Ronaldo was to Portugal. Don’t like either personally (although that’s crazy in itself because I don’t know them) but think both are class footballers.

Happy to pull on a green shirt until they get a better offer. I have to question whether they're playing for the national team for patriotism or careerism.

Never forget the game against Man U when Pansil kept kicking Renaldo up in the air and the ref hardly gave a foul. Renaldo just got angrier and angrier.

Believe we got a hefty fine afterwards when Pantsil revealed that Al Fayed had given him a £10,000 bonus to stop Ronaldo scoring.

Nice to see Silva looking for Denis, one of our best headers and perhaps the best, designing a play for him… and what a play. This is a pick in basketball, legal in football only if Fulham player establishes position and doesn’t move and doesn’t raise his arms. A rule Chalobah followed perfectly Very impressed with Silva in this respect- it’s been a long time since we were a set piece threat.

Great movement by Dennis, I wish more players would do that against zonal defences which are very static.

It reminded me of another goal he scored some time ago, almost identical run at the near post. Can't remember who it was against though.

Just found it on Youtube Versus Derby May 16, 2018, possibly the last time he scored for us.
posted by Bobby (Guest) - Friday 17th September 2021, 3:26 AM
 
I remember Odoi's goal against Derby, and it was the best header ever. Odoi's headed goal was one for the archives to show grandchildren. It really was that good. Odoi is obviously potent from that side he scored and he should jump in with timing a lot more. Odoi is not the strongest of defenders though and that part of his game needs working on.
