Cav’s two goals would normally breeze it, but for me young Steven’s performance was breathtaking.

I really wanted to give my vote to Sess but I don´t want it to go to his head so early in his 1st team career. I voted for Cav in the end for his 2 great goals. Difficult to leave anyone out as it was a complete all round performance.

Cavaleiro looking like night and day since he got his first goal. Looking very assured now.

Difficult decision.....But our Captain gets it by a nose.
Thought his decision making and passing was superb tonight...

The front line is scary, the midfield is playing with some grit and the back line is rounding into a very formidable one. Things are good in SW6.

 I think I like Steven better than Ryan! I'd love to hear the telephone call the two lads had after the match. Still, i wish they both were on the pitch.

Knockheart never stopped running. Sess, Cav..  you could make a motm case for most out there tonight.
What a performance!?

Hard one this, many good performances, have to really think about it.

Only saw the brief highlights on Quest, but Cav scored a cracker, scored another and had an assist. Also looks like a good fella to have in the changing room. So Cav for me.

On Quest they were saying we have a formidable forward line, but the guy who they picked out was Arter for bringing it all together for the team

I voted cav 2 goals and his speed passing was a stand out, I hope the decision is that difficult every week, they were all extremely good.

I have not voted yet as it could be anyone on the pitch, the pass by TC for Cav's second was sublime. Interesting to see what the media and Sky say about tomorrow, bit it was worthy of all the great number 10s.

Stunning performance agree with all the above. However, thought I'd add a shout out for Stefan Johansen. Very happy when we 'reclaimed; him from WBA & he's starting to emulate the form of 2 years back. That said, could have spotlighted any of our team tonight = simply outstanding.

Do you have a MotM for a kick-about? When's our game against Millwall, that physical team that keeps running and puts stress on our defence through high balls to their big target man? Practically our whole team could be the MotM. Ream touched the ball more than anyone, but Cav gets my nod.

There was a pregame video where the team was walking into the grounds from the bus...Joe Bryan was slightly behind Cav...slightly tripped one of his legs...Cav didn't stop walking but turned around with a "what the hell" look on his face...and Joe just kept on smiling.   :003:

I think this may be a really tight nit group.

Cav all day long.When he scored the first,I was up going same again and he obliged. Having said that what a team performance

Surely has to be Cav. What a performance from him, and what a start to his Fulham career!

Voted for cav

But it could have been any of them .also a shout out for stef jo looked back to himself and if i had the chance i might have voted for scott parker for the way he has them playing and how they look like a tight group when we score everybody joins in to celebrate i love to see that

Outstanding all round performance.

Cav has great belief now and will get better.
Arter was good as usual but didn't have as much to do in a defensive MF role as they couldn't get the ball.

But the unsung hero for me was StefJo. Awesome performance for me tonight.

So many good performances. Betts untroubled (apart from a couple of high balls).  Ream once again outstanding, Mawson improving and very solid last night.  Cearney's passing of the highest quality again. Knockaert's skill, endeavour and commitment were first rate. Steven's performance was very assured, and very confident on the ball. Bryan hardly put a foot wrong. Arter full of energy and helping us keep a good shape. Mitro being Mitro. I also thought Johansen was very involved and worked his socks off. But how can you see past two great goals and an assist for Cavaleiro?

Johansen makes us tick, he was key to a lot of what we did today

Just never stops, when he has the ball you expect something to happen.

Cavaleiro - not simply because he scored 2 goals, but because he did so much else to contribute to the overall team performance.  He covered a huge amount of ground last night and Millwall must have been hugely relieved to see him subbed 10 minutes before the end.

Man of the match Cav.  Player of the season (so far) Steffi Jo.  Classiest player on parade Stephen S.  How long will it take Levy for the penny to drop that he has bought the wrong twin. :022:

I often go with the multiple goal scorer for MOM but not last night.
I think Bryan was absolutley brilliant.
He hardley put a foot out of place, ghosted past thier defenders and was assured and in control all night.

I voted for the older of the Sessegnon twins once again because the standard of his positioning, passing, tackling and play never dropped below the high mark he has set for himself.  He looks like someone who has been playing this game forever and yet still only nineteen.  Impressed by him doesn't really do justice, and amazed may be a better word.

So hard to choose but went for Anthony Knockaert. Struggling to remember the last time we had a player with that much appetite. He bombs around the pitch popping up everywhere playing one-two's with anyone who cares to join in. Its like having an extra player.  I hereby christen him Atom Ant.

Hard to choose between so many. Never understood why SteffJo was jettisoned last season and he was everywhere yesterday. S.Sess, TC also great but it has to be Cav. 2 goals and 1 assist. Pace power control and finishing

Off topic, but what would Berbatov be able to do on this team?
Title: Re: MOTM Fulham 4-0 Millwall
Post by: Woolly Mammoth on August 22, 2019, 08:04:22 PM
I have gone for Sess on this occasion as he has been a breath of fresh air, and hopefully solved and secured the right back problem we have had of late.

Not be as comprehensive a team player in the same way that all those on the pitch were last night.  (Not intended as a real criticism of Mr B, who was great to watch and supremely talented, but every one of last night's team ran and fought all over the pitch.  If you can watch the replay take any player and track him, he'll pop up all over the place - Betts and the 2 centre backs excepted of course!)

Fail to pull his weight & we’d end up playing with 10 men, be the focal point for any squad disharmony & basically be overhyped & a disappointment to me. Again.

So difficult to choose MOM as there were so many deserving the award.
Went for Cav. as it is hard to recall a player scoring two goals of such quality.
