Fighting Spirit
« on: August 12, 2017, 04:59:27 PM »
This team is absolutely immense! For 94 minutes and 30 seconds they fought with 10 men away from home. Some how they managed to fight to the very end, rewarded with an 80th minute equalizer that makes up for the one we gave up last weekend. Still undefeated. The fighting spirit of this team is incredible. This is the spirit of serious promotion contenders.  :wow: :wow: :wow:

"Fulham are a class act" according to the Radio Berkshire commentators!

Spirit in abundance and plenty of individual quality. Just need to boost the ranks while there is still time. As Kalas will have to serve a suspension, let alone any unexpected injuries.

On way back. Great fighting spirit. On bus with Reading fans, they are distraught.

Marvelous. Fantastic team spirit.

Not at all impressed by Relucant Reading though. They seemed miserable when in possession

Since SJ has been in charge, our teams have never given up. The fighting spirit is hugely improved.

Just watched the hi-lights..

Kalas: 50/50 if he was even the last man. Very harsh.

Button: MOM two games in a row.

Piazon!! Quality goal. So composed and went round his man brilliantly. Already looks way better than last year (especially after Wycombe) Did he cup his ear to the Reading fans?

Was either 1) towards the Reading camp, or 2) to liven up the Fulham Faithful and gesturing them to pump up the team by saying "I can't hear you"

I'm not the hugest Button fan (still think Betts should be #1 when he comes back) but I'll give Button his due, he has been VERY VERY good these first two games. Nothing but praise for that man

Great result today. Wanted 3 but under the circumstances was a terrific point. I don't rate Button but last 2 games has been terrific and i hope it continues as has been my MOM back to back games. Leeds will not be easy but whilst 3 points from 3 games is not impressive i would take it with our lack of squad depth. Piazon is doing the number 20 shirt proud!

Very good performance by the team especially when you take into account that Reading committed 18 fouls with 71% of the play, if you deduct the time the ball was not in play or with Button they fouled us once for each minute we had the ball, 11 more fouls than we committed with twice the opportunity to commit fouls. Really starting to dislike Reading and Stam, I hope they get their just deserts this season. 049:gif

It's certainly not a turnip for the books. Have to give him his due, has shown tremendous character considering his loss of form and confidence which has plagued him in recent months. I hope he continues the good work.

If Graham Taylor had ever been MoM would it have been a turnip for the books?

Well said. Incredible effort to come back and draw that against all the odds. These lads are a unit, that's for sure.
