Games for the Weekend 20/10

This weekend we travel to South Wales to take on fellow Premiership ‘new boys’ Cardiff

Cardiff v Fulham

Well the past couple of games didn’t go the way we’d hoped so this weekend we’ll be aiming to get a result against a Cardiff ream that haven’t won a game so far this season, so expect a Fulhamish result!?

I’m sure Slaviša will have spent the ‘international break’ working with the players on their defensive duties, something Colin will try to exploit.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah is unlikely to be fit, so Cyrus Christie will hope for a better performance than against Arsenal, he wasn’t as bad as some have made out however he’ll want to answer some of his critics with a performance. At this point we don’t know if Tom Cairney, Alfie Mawson or Joe Bryan will be in the squad, their inclusion can only help shore up a too leaky defence.

If Slaviša’s style of football is better than Colin’s version then this game is the one to drive our point home, last season’s fixture resulted in a 4-2 defeat, time for revenge…

Games for the Weekend 29/09

This weekend we travel to Everton’s home Goodison Park

Everton v Fulham

Well Goodison Park is not a happy hunting ground for Fulham, I think we’ve only ever won there in a FA Cup game so I’m not expecting a run-away result for us this weekend. Having said that wouldn’t it just be Fulhamish for us to get a result!?

Slaviša must have drilled it into the whole team that the match starts at 15:00, not 15:05, we can’t give the opposition another early goal!
Everton should have won easily last weekend at Arsenal having dominated for virtually the whole game however, they somehow managed to loose 2-0, I’m guessing they’ll want to exact revenge against a London club, so we need be be ‘on our game’ right from the start.

After Tuesday evening’s performance Cyrus Christie and Luca de la Torre must be giving Slaviša a decision to make, Cyrus must have improved his chances of starting the game and Luca could well be included in the squad.
