Games for the Weekend 04/07

This Saturday’s game we’ll be at home to Birmingham City and have a “normal” kick-off time of 15:00

Fulham v Birmingham City

So after a win against QPR we face a Birmingham City side that have lost their last game, 0-3 to Huddersfield, and drew their first two games after lockdown against Hull, 3-3, and a very creditable 0-0 against West Brom.
We’ll be without Mitro, I don’t think we’ll see him until the Cardiff game, so it’ll be another unusual attacking line-up for us?, we do need to get other players on the score sheet!

Our previous games against Birmingham have been quite even, 6 wins, 5 losses and 4 draws, so if history is anything to go by its going to be a close game.

Games for mid-week 30/06

The games will be coming think and fast now that the Championship is back underway, Tuesday evening see’s us travel the short distance to QPR.

QPR v FULHAM

So after Saturday’s awful performance against Leeds we now take on local rivals QPR at Loftus Road.
This is the 2nd “derby” for QPR in 4 days, they lost 1-0 to Charlton in Saturday’s early kick off, so they’ll be looking for a result against us, and after our last two games they must be hopeful of a good result.

Fulham’s record against QPR is very good, 7 wins, 2 losses and draws. We won the earlier game this season, in November, 2-1 with 2 from AK47, wouldn’t it be nice to see him get a run out sometime soon?

Remember it’s a 18:30 kick-off.

Games of Interest 27/06

This weekend we travel up to Elland Road to take on Leeds at their place.

Leeds United v Fulham

Neither team got the re-start to the season that they would have wanted, both with 2-0 defeats, so they’ll be looking to bounce back this weekend.

Leeds are 7 points ahead, with a +12 goal difference, so it’s still a tough ask for us to catch them.
However, recent history favours Fulham with 3 wins, 1 loss and 5 draws.

Games for the Weekend 20/06

Well footie is finally back, at least games “behind closed doors”, and we kick-off the Championship’s return with a game against Brentford.

Fulham v Brentford

As we’re effectively starting the season again, previous matches and form probably won’t mean a great deal, never the less here’s what I thought about our “last” game…

In other circumstances an away draw at Bristol would have been a good result, especially after going a goal behind, but if we’re aiming for automatic promotion it must be seen as 2 points dropped? Having said that we played well and it looks as if Captain Cairney is back to his best, Tom had his best game in an age, lets hope he continues.

Brentford are scoring goals for fun, 5-0 against Wednesday, they also beat Hull 1-5 earlier in February, our defence will have to be on top of their game for this one.

Brentford are another team who like playing us, they’ve won 5, drawn 3 and only lost 2 against us in recent games. They are currently on 60 points, 4 behind us, so with a win we could stretch that gap to 7 and move ourselves closer to West Brom and Leeds.

Games for Boxing Day

For our post-Christmas game we travel up to Kenilworth Road to play Luton Town.

Luton Town v Fulham

So after an unexpected? result against Leeds we face Luton Town. When “the Hatters” visited Craven Cottage earlier in the season Mitro’ got himself a hat-trick, more of the same would be good. The final score was 3-2, which I think flattered Luton but having said that it was a good game and we can’t afford to go to sleep as we did towards the end of that game.

Luton are struggling a bit, they’ve lost their last 3 games and in November were beaten 7-0 when they played Brentford however, they have won against Wigan and Charlton.

Games for the Weekend 21/12

This weekend we welcome Leeds United to Craven Cottage for a 3 o’clock kick off.

Fulham v Leeds United

After our 3rd defeat in a row we now get to play probably our toughest opponents so far this season!
In some ways our current form could lull Leeds into a false sense? they’ve been outstanding all season and we’re constantly inconstant. If we play to our potential, we have to at some time? and if Leeds are a little overconfident then we will surprise them.

Our recent record against Leeds is interesting, we’ve won 2, lost 1 and drawn 5 so “history” shows that it should be a tight game.

Leeds captain and key defender Liam Cooper could be back in the heart of their defence, Mitro’ will give him a real test and should be an interesting contest between the two of them.

Games for Mid-week 10/12

Yet another evening game, this time we travel to Deepdale to play Preston North End for a 19:45 kick-off.

Preston North End v Fulham

So our winning streak came to end with a home defeat, it had to end some time and in truth we didn’t play well enough, even with poor refereeing decisions, against Bristol City.
Neeskens Kebano, when he came on, showed some nice touches and AK47 changed the game, why didn’t he start? Away to Preston we’ll need to play a lot better and have a better game plan or we’ll get nothing out of the game.
Preston also lost at the weekend, they were away to QPR, so they’ll be looking to get a result against another “London” team. They’ve had a pretty consistent season so far being around or above sixth place, we’ve averaged ninth.
However our record against Preston is a good one, we’ve won four and drawn two.

Games for the Weekend 07/12

Saturday afternoon, 3 o’clock, how unusual we get to play Bristol City at the Cottage on a “normal” day and time.

Fulham v Bristol City

Our boys must be full of confidence as we’ve won four on the trot and we’re only five points from the top spot sitting just behind West Brom and Leeds in 3rd place.
Mitro is still on fire, 15 goals now and not looking to slow down anytime soon. Rod├ík has settled quickly, especially for a young goal keeper, he’s on 22, as keeper’s don’t normally hit their prime until their late 20’s or early 30’s, he’s a very exciting prospect.

Bristol City had a great result last weekend thumping Huddersfield 5-2. In recent years we’ve had mixed fortunes against Bristol City, we’ve only won twice and lost four times, once in a cup game.

Games for the Weekend 29/11

Yet another non-Saturday 3 o’clock kick-off, this time Friday 19:45 see’s us travel to Wales and the Liberty Stadium in order to take on Swansea City.

Swansea City v Fulham

Tuesday evening saw us gain a comfortable win over Derby, always a good thing! Swansea had a tough draw away to Huddersfield so both teams will be approaching this fixture with an air of confidence.
A couple of downers were the injuries to AK47 and Bobby De Cordova-Reid, a shame for both AK would have been hoping to cement his place in the team and Bobby Reid getting his first goal.
Swansea have been something of a bogie team for Fulham with 5 wins, 1 draw and only 2 wins for us against them. Let’s see if we can get a 3rd win against them!

Games for Mid-Week 26/11

Tuesday evening at the Cottage, this time we take on Derby County.

Fulham v Derby County

After a shaky start Friday evening the lads eventually came good with AK47 getting a couple of well taken goals.
Scotty Parker will have to think hard and long about his inclusion in the starting eleven now that Mitro has served his one match ban.
If the two of them could form a partnership they would be truly frightening to any team.

Derby also had a home win, their fifth successive home win, against Preston North End on Saturday however they’ve not had too much success on the road.
