4 points from the next 3 games would be a decent return IMO. Happy to take a point out of this one to be honest. A hard fought 0-0.

Be interesting to see who's going to cope with wonder boy Sessegnon. Big double page article on him in the Sun today. He'll need some watching. I'd love a win, ( it could happen, we're the home boys) but for once a point might be a realistic aim.

Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for Jan and PFA Championship Player of the Month for Jan. The lad's on fire. I hope we stick Wheats on him as I think he'll make a bit of a knob out of Beavers.

Won 10 of their last 14. Some going. I think I'll be happy with a point here too.

He's a left wing back isn't he? Isn't he the one who can do 100M in 10 seconds or something ridiculous?

Seems to be a view that Fulham might nick the second automatic promotion spot as fans of the opposition they've played recently have all said they are a superb side. And they've added in January.

Going to be very tough. I'd be delighted with a point.

They play 4-2-3-1. He started the season as their left back, but has moved onto the left hand side of the attacking three behind the striker as the season has progressed. Ryan Fredericks who plays right back is one of those 10 second flyers. Wasn't sure that Sessegnon was that quick, they had Scott Malone, now at Huddersfield, at left back last year who was also super quick.

Their winning run has to come to an end at some point :)

To be fair, they haven't been winning convincingly every game. Barnsley had them 1-1 after 90mins in their last away game despite playing the second half with ten men, before Fulham scored twice injury time. They won at Middlesbrough with a penalty in the fifth minute of injury time, and they were 1-0 down after 65mins at home to Ipswich, before scoring 4 in ten minutes after Ipswich had a man sent off. Clearly a very good side, opposing managers were saying that before this run of results, but not impossible for us to get something. Should be an interesting watch.

Sorry, BWFCi – I was giving it overnight... :D
A side who've beaten us 13 times in 27 since Euro 2000 – Middlesbrough
A side we've played nine times in that period and never won – Forest
A side we've faced 13 times and only won twice, for a 15.4% win ratio which is far shabbier than our 23.3% against the Cottagers - Derby

Thanks. I was right on Boro!

We've beaten Forest since Euro 2000 though! I was there! Good old Gaz Faz!

They've one of the best attacks in the league and we've one of the worst defensive records - so on paper we're shit out of luck. On grass, we're probably still going to struggle; but sod it. We need to go out there and spoil the game in midfield and find a way to deal with Sessegnon and Cairney. Little has the pace and energy to live with Sessegnon. We'll find out if he's also got the ability.

They've also got Cyrus Christie and Ryan Fredricks, who have some of the best assist rates from crosses in the league. You'd hope our centre backs will be good enough in the air to deal with that, though.

I'm not hopeful, but they're beatable.

Hope the brass monkeys are out as bad as today. Those southern er, gentlemen may be slighly affected by the Hill climate; it ain't called Winter Hill for no reason...Well, I'll grab any straw that gets us a win. :wink:

Is that the Stelios last minute 1-0? Refuse to follow the link in case it is and I have to read about it. Living it once was plenty thank you.
