I was worried about Mawson after Betts dove into his knee last week, but I guess he's good to go.


H.Reed
Bobby Reid
AK47


That's an impact bench I wouldn't want to have to face.    Hopefully we can put up a least 2 against Milwall's defense.


Wait...I hope Denis is ok.   I'd love him to come off the bench before MLM or Cyrus.

Millwall finally started pressing high. Bit late I think.

I think they did it only because they knew there were 5-10 minutes left before the break.

This is the conundrum we present to the opposition:

1) Sit back and we patiently wait for the incisive pass
2) Press early and pray for some mistakes, at the potential cost of running out of energy too soon, where we will potentially cut you up with our attackers

The idea that Parker has is to invite pressure I think. Then shift up the pace when they're slightly off balance trying to pressure the ball.

The only way to play against it is to press like a unit. Sitting off like Millwall has with Cairney, Knockaert and Cavaleiro getting to turn with the ball is suicidal.

All I can say is that I am going to pour my first Gordons g & t, that will probably be a record at this time of night equivalent to the amount of possession Fulham have had, are we that good, Millwall 7 pts from 3 games against better teams than we have played so far. We do look like the side that got promoted recently!

True. Still, if they press for 90, we will be running around them like they are cones from 70' on, IMO. Would you agree?

unless that was a twinge cairney touched when walking off?
