Parker out.......100% his fault today. Crap team selection. & Crap tactics. & Crap defending.
Replies
Parker out too. Clueless team selection, clueless tactics and clueless defending. Knockhart no end product my gran could have scored his chance early in the second half. Oh no ma! How did he make it as a footballer, should have studied ballet and at least four other players on the bench who could have played his position today who are head and shoulders better than him.

We were average today it happens but the only difference was Knockaert missed to chances Bristol took there’s and defended we so deserve to be 2-0 up even with ref giving us nothing then KAMARA and Kebano changed game stone wall pen draw fair result and l would of settled for that after winning four on trot . But yes only good enough for play offs

Parker was involved in the signing of Onomah , that can be the only reason he has had so many minutes on the pitch this season . He brings nothing to the team . AK should have replaced him at half time at the very least . Parker is being shown up as tactically naive by all of the top five managers . This squad are desperately underachieving on the number of points dropped and the quality of our football .
Replies
Bryan was at fault for both goals Odoi should play left back Christie or Sess play right back . Onohmah should be sent back to TH he’s hopeless .....sorry to be so forthright !

We have Matt O'Riley on the bench..why have him there?? His only games this season ahve been preseason (one of our better payers in games he played) Southampton: probably our best outfield player..EFL Cup or whatever its called..best player in 45 mins at Stevenage and also Wycombe..We have a player here who is so much better than Onomah yet never gets a chance..can see why youth leaves..its crazy..he couldn't do any worse and would do a lot better..personally him and Stef with TC in front would work as would TC and Stef with him ahead as he plays all those positions..madness!! I saw all 3 young ones warming up and Parker never even uses them..Dont blame them for wanting to leave MAtt (and DLT) are way too good to be loaned and should be involved but can see why they will go.

Why put out that team selection in a game like this! Since Kamara made his debut back at QPR, we had a different outlook and addition to our game. Mitro was suspended at QPR so fair enough Parker we give Kamara a try. It worked great, and still at the Cottage against a dangerous Derby, he does the intelligent thing and plays Kamara up with Mitro, brilliant, tick that one off! Kamara featured last week and okay, he doesn't do a lot against Swansea, but he did just enough to justify selection by crashing one off the bar for Mitrovic to head in. Kamara got Parker out of jail again. I knew we would lose this one starting slow, like i knew dunce Parker would put his get out of jail card on, but far too late this time. Bristol did their home-work and fair enough, they will waste time seeing the game out. We do that sometimes by the way so no complaints there! Knockheart is starting to become irritating and a liability and Cavalerio just doesn't do enough to make things happen, thats why Nuno planted him here by the looks of it. I will say this once about Ryan Sessegnon, we should enquire about bringing the boy wonder back on loan in January. Forget what some of those idiots we call fans say about him. Sessegnon, 'DOES MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!!!! SEND THOSE 2 PILLOCKS BACK WHERE THEY CAME FROM!!!! They don't do enough at Fulham, nuff said!!!!!!
Replies
Sometimes I wonder how we get some of these players....don't we have scouts out looking at them before we buy or bring them in on loan to see how they will fit etc....perhaps we should be looking to recruit some half descent scouts in the the first instance.

You would have thought, by some of these comments, that the season finished today, and that we were near the bottom of the table. I have just looked and despite today's loss, we are still sitting 3rd in the table, with 35 points, which is a far better position than we were two seasons ago, when we reached Wembley. It might be an omen, but we lost 0-2 at home to Bristol City that season as well. In fact they always seem to beat us at CC. However saying that, what an awful decision by the referee not to award us a penalty near the end. It was a blatant foul, and it should have been given. We are still well in touch with the top 2, and unless we really go off of the boil, a play off place is almost a given, and I quite fancy going to Wembley for another great day out.

It could be a tearful play-off result Alan, and it is not a given. There will be even more tears if we don't go up and we lose Mitrovic. He might love it here at Fulham, but will he like the Championship going into another season???

That could well be the case Rm, but are you so good that you can definitively predict the final outcome with 78 points still to play for. Methinks you are a bit of a chump, but hey with your powers of prediction it could be me ending up looking the fool. Probably not though, because I don’t make silly predictions.

Onomah has had too many minutes and done nothing. He’s a net negative. Once AK47 and Neeskens came on, we played much better. Parker needs to wake up and pick the right XI.

What is the point of Onomah? He just strolls around and looks and is built like Anguissa. The only saving that unlike Anguissa he didnt cost 17 million quid. How he can be picked over Kevin Mac is beyond me and any arguments about Mac’s pace vs Onomah are cobblers.

When defending corner kicks it has always surprised me FFC have everyone in the box defending . Someone small and fast who can hang on to the ball should be in the centre circle this will drag more opposition players out of the box to cover him and also put us immediately on the offensive if the ball is punted upfield . I’m thinking about Cavaleiro and Knockheart after all they are unlikely to help defensively in the air . Small point maybe but been bugging me for ages ! Coyw’s today against BC always difficult to play against .

This will be a great game to watch for the neutrals and i hope it goes our way. We are potent in attack and we will get loads of chances and i just hope we take most of them. Bristol will have their moments too for sure, and they are coming of a 5-2 win to Huddersfield, that tells us everything we need to know. I just hope that Rodak clears that ball sooner and quicker by giving it the big boot upfield because we should have the assistance of 'The Brahma Bull' AK-47 Kamara!!! All quick throws and kicks will be greatly welcomed by Mitrovic also. Contrary to what some experts think, Kamara is another ace we have and should put on the table from the start. The QPR game we had no choice but to chuck him in the deep end, and it paid dividends for Scott Parker. I was hoping Parker would play him along up with Mitrovic against Derby and i got my wish. Kamara wasn't fully loaded with bullets that night because of a slight injury and maybe a little fatigue from playing 90 minutes which he isn't used too. I think now he should be up to speed and along with Mitro to keep their defenders busy, we should have a a fruitfull and joyous night full with goals from sant's sack. Okay' we have a fragile defence and nowt we can do about that for now, so expect a few hearts in the mouth moments and maybe the odd goal or two from Bristol City. With the services of our talisman Mitrovic and the 'Brahma Bull-AK-47' minus the punch-ups and the Peoples Elbow', we should come away the winners and send Bristol City back up to Ashton Gate sharpish. COME ON YE FULHAM!!! P.S, do i think Arizonan is stirring with excitement in the nuptuals? 'Yeh' this is Fulham, and i guess he got the AK-47 shirt!!!

The Prince of Wales, Prince Edward and Prince Andrew are in damage limitation mode and partaking in a televised discussion on morals moderated by the Archbishop of Canterbury (whom God preserve). Testing the limits of royal morality, the Archbishop asked the future king whether he would condone having sex with, for instance, a fourteen year old. Absolutely not, said Charles, that's underage by the law of the land and contradictory to the teachings of the New Testamnemt. I couldn't condone such behaviour. And you Andrew, said the Archbishop, would you engage in sexual activity with a fourteen year old? As my brother said, Andrew replied, such an act is illegal and runs contra to Christian teachings and beliefs. I would not partake in such an act. Turning to Prince Andrew, the Archbishop mused as to whether the Prince himself would consider having a sexual relationship with a fourteen year old. Hmmm, said Andrew, a fourteen year old what?

I am not saying that we can keep up a pace-high tempo for 90 minutes by a long chalk, but we sure can add more injection of pace through being clever and astute. We can use our pace within our team in both halves, we can be cute. Our obvious pacier guy is Kamara who is showing his importance to this Fulham team, Kamara could figure from the start. Saying that, 90 minutes will be impossible for Kamara to keep up, and he will probably be substituted at some point. It could be a lively Derby game between us 2 teams and Bristol will have their chances for sure. I suggest we hold back Cavaliero and bring him on at half-time to raid and run amock down that left side, Cavaleiro seems more effective on 45 minutes in my opinion. If we can hold a nice lead going into the 2nd half? The services of big Mac for Johansen might be a good choice to close out this Derby game. Not sure if mad Harry is ready for this battle? We sure can do with his dogged tenacity and experience for this game...

Perhaps sorporific is a better word than boring. Sleep inducing other than the adrenaline rush of fear when the opposition charge forward with the ball. Parker is assured his position, and I don't have a problem with that, but all the keep-ball in the world doesn't equate to class football. All the wonderful cameo players touted as God's answer to dull football - how many goals have they scored? If you take Mitrovic out of the equation what are you left with? FA, and I don't mean the Football Association.

Knockheart is frustrated at his lack of goals and we can see that judging from his expression. The more he tries, the harder it is for him. It doesn't mean that he is not effective or doing a job. The more he dribbles up the pitch is the more the clock runs down lately when we are winning. A lot of experts and pundits think we are wonderful and think we are the dogs B.ll..cks in this league. Arizonian, you must have fell off that rodeo horse and banged your head on a cows Back=s..e too many times and counted to 9 instead of 10, surely you can see some improvement? We are deemed good enough to do well and get out of this league. It is a whole different ball-game and headaches if we get to the prem. Scott Parker who is no different from Man-utd's rookie Soltsjar will need to improve on his management skills again. A step up to prem might mean a more experienced manager might be needed. Hey' Rome wasn't built in a day and where is that blighter MST? This guy might have been captured by some tree people in the Dean Forest or something. Come to think of it' since he has depaterted, you seem to have lost your mo-jo and talk more jibberish these days. You need to send for a Fulham shirt with 'AK-47' written on it and wear it at those rodeo shows you frequent. It sure would cheer you up. AK-47 Kamara is the man Arizonan' Say it a few times before bedtime and i am sure the belief will come back. COME ON FULHAM!!!!!!!

We are undoubtedly in a good position at this point in time,but thinking of the future we defensibly and mid field have an ageing squad. Odi 31, Reem 32, Marchand 30, Mc Donald 31, Arter 30. It appears we have shown interest in Flyn Downes of Ipswitch at 20 possibly if the price is right a good acquisition an of course their is our own Matt O R who like Rodek I have been singing his praises for some while, but as yet not been given any game time,bench sitting is not doing anything for his career,so in the Jan window I would like to see him loaned out for the rest of season to a champ/or lge 1 side where we would have a better chance to analyse his ability. In our run in A full back is a must, If we are unsuccessful in the Jan window, a Loan back for SESS could be the answer with the understanding he defends and is not a flying winger, Any other players who may benefit us in the Jan window come to mind.

MOR is way better than Onomah and listening to a couple of U23 coaches they sont undersatand why je is ahead of Matt...He wont go on loan as he's the kind of player who will benefit from playing up not dowm IMO..so unless a premiership club wants him on loan it wont happen... he is better than all but possibly Cairney in midfield so we either play him or he leaves..No player who goes on loan ever plays for our first team (Except keepers).. Insane that he isnt already a regular..will probably sign abroad in Jan if he doesnt see an opportunity here

Have a heart Jezza, he's only a kid and he did great for us. Some memorable games and one of his best was up at Newcastle. Sessegnon scored a brace and it could have been a hattrick. The hattrick would have been a memorable record in Fulhams history. Sessegnon might have stayed if intelligent people and someone with more insight might have organised a loan deal. Cavaleiro looks better on that side but he does not have the goal ratio that Ryan Sess does for us, and he played left-back half the time here...

What a shock. I got a bit starstruck back in Summer, when I spotted him in a local pub in Kingston. It was the same day as Ben Stokes took that incredible catch at The Oval, and I was going to ask Bob if he'd ever taken a catch like that (hopefully he'd have told me to F off!!). And I recall commenting to my dining companions on the night that he looked in terrific nick. RIP.

The way both WBA and Leeds are playing, and the luck that they are having, it looks like we are only playing for a top 6 spot and maybe another game at Wembley. What a pity that we have thrown so many points away this season, against Barnsley, Middlesboro, Stoke, Sheffield Wed, Cardiff and even WBA.

Our last 3 winning games show the best and the worst side concerning our defence. This is nothing new by a long stretch and like it or not, we are long used to our situation by now. I even have sympathy towards the doomers and gloomers because i am one of them every now and again. We have a run of games that will be the ultimate test, and it will tell us everything we want to know about Fulham and how good we really are. Arking back to the QPR game, our defence was a shambles most of the first half and i could easily have wrote of Tim Ream forever, he was terrible! If that goal had gone against us from his clearance or pass-back? You would need to ask him about that one, it could have all been so different. Forward to the Derby game and Reamy looked majestic with Mawson etc. Our understanding and getting to know about each other has taken longer than we expected, but is this unusual? Perhaps not, and harking back to our quick visit to the prem, we even had less time to gel and bed in our defence. The speed and pace of the prem with the quality and know-how of the top teams, don't allow you that time you need. The dynamics from coming off the internationals and the ajust to the QPR saw the worst side of Reamy. Roll on to Derby and boy' what a difference a few days make. We still have that fragility and no doubt we always will as our history shows, but now this time around, we are finally getting to know each other. The question is now, do we need a another central defender in January?
Replies
Cameo appearances by the central defenders don't cut it. The pairing is simply not good enough. Try using Hangeland and Hughes as a yardstick and get back to me.
posted by The Arizonan - Sunday 01st December 2019, 2:22 AM
 
Spot on. Cameo appearances are not what’s required, it’s about consistency. Look at Hangerland, Hughes, Coleman and more, all of these had good stats, these guys haven’t achieved this yet. I feel we will definitely need additional defenders in January. The centre backs have improved over the last three games but there is still a lot work to be done. Additional players mean competition within the squad and that will improve consistency. Also defenders get a considerable amount of red and yellow cards, injuries and drops in form, it is important that we have players who can step in without too much changes to how we play.
posted by Gaz (Guest) - Sunday 01st December 2019, 12:54 PM
 
The unit we have now i assume they are our chosen squad of 4 what works reasonably albeit not flawless. Odoi Mawson Ream and Bryan. Mawson needs the game-time and stability around him now he has gotten over his injuries. These 4 as a unit need to play and get each others game week in week out. The new guy we have is in, in January. Christie covers Odoi, Le Marchand covers Joe Byan and we have Sess. I was not a big fan of Christie's but arguably, he gets the gist when he is dropped and he looks like he improves when he is on. Steve Sess is up and learning and he will figure. That leaves Le Marchand? Do we get rid? Our main 4 can and should be capable of building up a good run of games unbeaten. It will be impossible not to concede within this squad and my point is why worry about details like that. Scott Parker is going with the theory and tactics which clearly is risky but it brings results. Those days of iron-clad stone-wall defences are long gone. Rodak instils more confidence in our shaky defence much more than Betonelli which will heap more confiidence our our chosen first team unit. I am having less heart in my mouth moments and i am resign to the fact that we will concede goals every now and again. Just like a mole on a part of your body you have to get used too, we should get used to our flaws too. Keep-ball and going forward is a big part of our defence...

Arizonan is 100% right. If we go up, we will need an entirely new back 4 to stay up. This group of Ream, Mawson, Odoi, Bryan are all solid subs in the Prem. They can fill in for injuries, they can play in the Carabao and FA Cups. But that’s it. We get promoted, we sell Christie and Le Marchand and loan out Steven Sess, and BUY proven Premier League players. Freddo and Targett for starters?). No more Ligue 1 mercenaries!
posted by Drago (Guest) - Monday 02nd December 2019, 7:11 PM
 
Drago' remember what happened when we brought in a load of players back in the prem? It didn't work mate, and we need to be careful to not upset the balance too much again. An entirely new back 4 might not work out that well? I might be wrong but i have a theory that the likes of Alfie Mawson needs security and stability. Mawson is a slow burner, and he is just about getting used to everyone around him now. Ream is Ream and he is ageing, but for now he is okay. Our big cunumdrum at Fulham in this team is we have left and right defenders who like to go forward which is the modern way. Unfortunately, Bryan and Odoi will always have mistakes in them and we need to accept that. To compare them to the likes of Hangerland etc is pointless because hands down they lose out in their defensive duties. Scott Parker did say something that makes sense, and that was to keep hold of the ball much more than the opposition and wear down the opposition is a big part of our defending. Not sure his exact words but you get the gist. We need to be careful, especially in January. Bring in too many players to cover whoever might upset the apple-cart. If we decide that the likes of Christie is not good enough, we need to ship him out in January. Thats my thoughts on this very interesting subject. Sure beats talking about Bristol and Brentford...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Monday 02nd December 2019, 7:55 PM
 
What balance would that be? We are chaotic at the back for most of every game, odd cameo apperanaces apart. Ream does not command the center, neither does Mawson, who hasn't made the hoped for impact. The full backs have their problems but goals are scored from the center and the central pair are prone to ball watching and too slow to react when the ball is behind them. They repeatedly let opposition players get between them and the ball and lose more headed challenges than they win. Simply not good enough. Change the central pair in January and the full backs in the summer and try and find a balance that creates confidence in the midfield going forward. This is hardly a new or unexpected problem; watch last year's videos for evidence of that.
posted by The Arizonan - Monday 02nd December 2019, 8:21 PM
 
Arizonan' we will never be the best defensively and every team knows that now. I was Parkers biggest critic and i might be so again if things go badly after these 6 games. Maybe i am hoping and wanting us to find a balance too much? Maybe that balance was being shown playing against Derby? We will never be perfect and we will always have that defensive flaw, and maybe Parker has found that balance which is a combination of quick-tempo attack and keep ball? Knowing that the more we keep it, the opposition is limited. Okay this is nothing new and it sounds almost laughable, but throw into the mix Bobby Reid from the start and one AK-47, which might add to the balance we are trying to work out. I would like your thoughts on Kamara now he has found his feet. Did it surprise you when Kamara turned up at QPR with 2 goals and MOTM? Again Derby did not know who to mark on either side. Alfie Mawson will be awesome, he just needed a lot more time with too many injuries.

Our under 18 team drew 2 - 2 away to Chelsea at their ground in Cobham. We led twice, and if it was not for a fine performance by their keeper the spoils would have been ours. If any fans can make the home games at MP, one can experience what a well drilled and talented side we have,(before we loose them on a free)

Difficult to see anybody stopping Brentford. They are destroying everybody in their path - looking like they will be getting promoted along with West Brom and Leeds. Where does that leave us? Another wasted season imo

I thought that last night, we almost proved that we are a good side, by winning ugly. Although at times we played some pretty decent football, there were other times, when we had to scrap for possession, and the defence, although not great by anyone's standards were prepared to throw their bodies in front of anything, which I thought was good news. Rodak is a vast improvement on Betts, and it's a pity that he didn't play in some of the earlier games, as we would probably have had a few more points. I thought that last night's referee had a really good game, taking no nonsense from either side, and ignored any fake fouls. It was good to see Notts Forest fail to win today, which just shows how hard it is to win games in the Championship. How on earth did will lose points away to Stoke, and at home to Hull, I do hope that these dropped points don't cost us promotion come May.

Firstly, a gutsy win. Mitro as usual superb; hail Rodak 22 years old ffs and getting better each game, what I like is the fact he's giving the lads in front of him confidence which is essential in a keeper. As for Ononmah, I kept saying to myself 'oh no' every time he got the ball, not sure if the lad is good enough at this level. Denis O class act. Alfie getting more assured as time goes on. Ream looking more like his old self, Cav had a teasing game with the opposition as usual, Stefan good touches but inconsistent and nees to play well for 90 mins. AK bit wild, but could blend well with Mitro after time. All in all a good night at the office. One final point where the feck did 5 minutes added time come from (which actually became 5 mins and 30 seconds)? I've made this point time and time again which is... why don't FIFA adopt Rugby rules as regards playing to the clock, in other words come 90 mins the hooter goes and the game ends. Fouls and injuries could be dealt with by having time outs (ie. the clock is stopped) meaning no time is lost. Far too bloody logical it strikes me.

Looking more like a team ,still look a bit dodgy at the back. Think a couple of additional quality players in the window will give us a push and a big advantage over the other challengers,West Brom and Leeds look impressive,West Brom only lost 1 match.

Think that’s about right MW. This is a very good squad with options. Any team has weaknesses but all players are improving week by week, even Christie, who I haven’t always rated too highly, looks a good late substitution. I know people are still calling for new signings but I think this squad is solid enough and wouldn’t want to disrupt the mix too much and of course Hector will be eligible after Christmas. I would like to just wave the flag for Denis Odoi, I think he has been great in recent matches and his performances often go under the radar. Let’s hope he can keep the rushes of blood to a minimum:))

Spot on Mortlake as for Odoi some what under rated always gives 100 per cent can fill in all over the back every club needs one and does a lot round the club

Onomah is definitely not good enough. His passing is garbage, he’s can’t dribble by anyone, but he’s also not a grafter like a Sidwell. We scored two goals playing 10 v 11. He was lucky the ball was passed to him which led to Mitro’s second. Did you see the celebration? A non-participant. If he’s starting against the better teams (the four match run we have coming up), he will get exposed. Hope Arter is back by then, but KMac would be an improvement, even if he is slower.

AK, a bit wild, but could well blend in?????? On the contrary MW, AK-47's dynamic debut is a large part of the reason for our change in fortunes. You make it sound as if Kamara is a bit-part and a little flicker or a minor influence on this team. His touch ia a tad heavy for a big guy, but it works some-how. Kamara's pace ,touches and deft flicks off the ball is a huge difference in our offence MW, and yes give credit to all at Fulham, it is a team game after-all said. Kamara's contribution in the Cardiff game was minimal i agree but still his attempt which ricocheted off the cross-bar fell into Mitro's path. I needed to point that detail out because in my opinion this guy will go on to make records for the most assists at Fulham. Sooner or later these sky pundits will slow down the footage from so many games and say what i have just pointed out. I think i am pretty good at pointing stuff like this out and then again sometimes i get it wrong, but no big deal on my part. Dented egoes last 1 day or 2...
posted by OWEN (Guest) - Saturday 30th November 2019, 11:40 PM
 
Kamara will need to not only keep up his on field performances but carry on with his new, well received attitude. It doesn’t mean that every time someone posts something about him that they are wrong. Kamara was a bit wild, we just don’t want him to let the team and more importantly himself down. I love a Maverick type player in the side but with Maverick comes craziness. We have had a few of them over the years.
posted by Gaz (Guest) - Sunday 01st December 2019, 1:55 PM
 
I hope he keeps up his good work on the field too. I don't know what that fight was all about but it is in the past now. Harking back to the penalty, if i had won it, i would have wanted to take it too. I probably would have missed it also. I saw nothing wrong with that incident myself. I think he scored one a week before? and coming off the dynamics from that game he thought he had the bottle to take it. Saying that, i would hope he leaves those decisions to Mitrovic next time around. Kamara is a lot more raw than wild i would say. I have always said about him that with coaching, he would get better and the proof is in the pudding. How many players do we see week in and week out that don't show improvement? 5 million when he came here, he could be much more than that. I would not want to move him on now, he could be worth millions if he keeps doing what he is doing...

The Parker out brigade as some call it always wanted him to succeed he is halfway through putting a run together that might convince he is getting things together. Tactically things have improved but we still have much to improve on, set plays, defensive positioning and we still move the ball too slowly. The upturn in form coincides with Johansen and Reams return to form, they look the same players as promotion season run in. Rodak has been a big positive and saved us yesterday from a probable defeat. Let’s keep level headed and get through this next run of games unbeaten and then we can really start to believe Parker is learning his trade. As Pep Guardiola once stated the coach is nothing without good players and we have the best squad in this division.

You’re not suggesting that Ream and Johansen’s improvement in form is the reason for the teams all round improvement, are you? Or just saying their form has improved as a direct result of the team improving, if the latter that is true of everyone, surely. I would suggest far great improvements have been seen from, notably Odoi, Rodak, Cairney amongst others, definitely ahead of Johansen, who still has a lot to do to get back to his best.
posted by Mortlake (Guest) - Saturday 30th November 2019, 3:08 PM
 
Against Derby, i think we moved the ball round crisp and perfect. certainly a lot quicker than the QPR game. It is not always possible to move it around like we did at Derby because some teams will come on the front foot quicker than us. We then have to soak up pressure and cope with these problems a lot better than we have done in the past. These coming and upward games will most likely be like the QPR game and we have just got to learn to soak up the pressure and find our rhythm into the game. My take on Johansen is i think he is coming back to his best, and now he only needs to put over a few of his specials in free kick situations. When was the last time we scored from a free-kick? I think Carvallio was the last one to do so. For me, football is about dynamics and timing. For instance, QPR after the internationals didn't suit Ream and he blagged it for part of that game. The Mitrovic one game ban was a blessing in disguise, and it proves so with him back to his best against Derby.Johansen needs games galore to show his best and so does the big man Mac Donald. Unfortunately, he will not get the time he needs unless we have big injuries.

Great win and great run which we need to keep going now, but we need our Harry back pronto. There is no substitute for experience and Josh Onomah is just not ready for this Fulham team at this moment in time. We need our Harry back. Harry may be mad as a hatter but he has that steel and guts that we need in a crisis. We have a nice balance in midfield with the steady Johansen and the industrious Cairney etc, but we need someone more experienced to do the dirty work in between defence and midfield and that is Arter. Bobby Reid is a big miss, especially tonight at Cardiff. We didn't have that same urgency and momentum as in the Derby game, and Bobby is the key to that. A difficult away game so far is always difficult but we got the result. Kamara didn't do a lot but he did enough by being involved with Mitro's first goal. There is a reason why those lung-bursting runs can't be produced every week so far, and i think him and Reidy are not used to 90 minutes but they will get there. I did not think he would make the game because he went down with cramp in the Derby game but great that he did. Bobby Reid will get used to 90 minutes with more game-time when he is fit again, but all good stuff. Bring on Bristol City. If we can beat our local rivals, and pick up points away at preston and Brentford, we will be ready for a top table 1 and 2 clash against Leeds at the Cottage. How cool is that!!!

Chas, Owen made a mistake when he said Bobby Reid Is a big miss especially tonight against Cardiff. He later said Bobby Reid will get used to 90 minutes with more game time when he is fit again. We all know that he is a Cardiff City player, but that wasn't anything to do with why he didn't play, and nobody except you mentioned it. So I suggest that you read peoples posts properly before criticizing.

GREAT WIN by Fulham this evening!..four wins in a row and within 2 points off automatic promotion. Liking the way we’re digging/grinding out wins too showing more grit/determination/aggression than previously... perhaps being influenced by Mitro-man who always makes his presence felt and just can’t stop scoring at the mo! Challenging games coming up but good to see more belief growing into the team and as previous years getting stronger as season progresses. Keep up the good work guys ...COYW!
Replies
A great win, but it was an exciting white knuckle ride from start to finish. Swansea had so many chances to score, but they didn't have a Rodak, or Mitro. I admire SP for sticking to his crossfield passing game, even though we were giving so much space to their wide players. Rodak has shown that he must be our number one. And Onamah has shown that he is not good enough yet to start.

Soo long as we keep in contention around the top 3, there is no danger of Mitrovic leaving. He is well aware of our position and like he says, take it one game at a time. The worry will come if we have a serious bad spell and drop down the table at a crucial time. We must keep the momentum now, promotion is the plan.

Thank god for Rodak, otherwise the score at half time could be 2-3, he’s pulled off some fantastic saves, I realise we are 2 up but our defence are all over the place, hopefully Swansea will continue to find Rodak impassable.

That’s what he’s there for. Not sure your assessment is correct. Swansea have a very good attack and if they could have had 3 then we could have had 5. That’s football they’re 2 down and so far we have a clean sheet. Long may it continue.

I want us to keep Dennis Odoi on the right hand side. Not the best defender but he just flows with his runs. Odoi is very talented and creates space on the turn of a sixpence which makes more assists. I am okay with Christie as cover for now also because i can see Scotty's way and route of play now. Mawson and Ream are looking better together now and Joe Bryan is settling down. Happy to say this, but who do we drop to accommodate a new defender? Swansea away was always going to be tough, but Rodak who you shouted up for Kunye' was a very inspired suggestion and you were 100% right, he is better than Bettonelli. Do you think Parker reads this forum? They should be paying us, intelligent guys, a little something don't you think?

Living near MP i have watched many training sessions,and although no coach one can see the natural talented players,and Rodek stood out a mile wit his positional and distribution ability, as does STANSFIELD & especially Matt O*REILLY, although on the bench recently he should sooner than later be given some game time.
