Rodak > Betts, Odoi > MLM. No other preferences. Our issues are tactical rather than personnel.

Don’t want MLM anywhere near the starting lineup.

Can we change the goalkeeper
Wouldnt be unreasonable to give Rodak another shot IMO but can't see it happening.

Rodak should play.

Is Bryan definitely out injured? Parker says in his preview that there are a couple of niggles after Hull game which they are looking in to, but other than that, a clean bill of health

John Doherty, what a happy go lucky man he was; he wanted to leave Fulham but we held him to his contract. The days when the player didn't have choices.  :016:

If I were the manager... as above but Knockaert (or Reid) on LEFT and Cavalerio on RIGHT

That gets my vote. It’s about time we tried the obvious alternative to our inverted wingers.

Team as posted but I would think about leaving TC out and playing Reid
Cairney didn't have the best of games last and it may pay off to flood the midfield with ball winners, Reed, Arter and Johansen but Ried has had more than his share of opportunities, he has yet to score a goal for us.

I don't get this inverted wingers business. Our crosses are non existent. Our corners are laughable.


For me a team can cover one luxury player in the team.

We have two in Knock and Cav.
Cav is the weaker as he delivers little in goals and defence.


Knock works hard so I'd keep him as the carried, luxury player.

Neither support Mitro enough.

 So Reid must play in support of Mitro.

We need a change of tactics desperately.

Bobby Reid’s first job is backup striker, given Mitro is on four yellows, he should concentrate on this super important position.

Have we ever won a game when MLM started?

Yes we have won games with MLM starting, actually he has won lots of games , Burnley (H), Milwall (cup), Southampton (A), Brighton (H), Everton (H), Bournmouth (A), Cardiff (H), Brighton (pre-season) and he played half the game against Hudderfield (H). Since MLM has arrived, we haven't beaten a single Premier League team without MLM playing at least half the game.

In 18/19,
a) FFC got 18 points in 19 games with MLM as a centre-back
b) FFC got 5 points in 7 games with MLM as a left back
c) FFC got 3 points in 12 games with MLM not featuring

In the EPL, in the games MLM played without Ream we got 8 points in 10 games, in the games Ream played without MLM we got 2 points in 9 games.

In many cases "your eyes deceive you", statistics show that when MLM plays Fulham play better. Our current team is filled with players that look great but when they play the team gets the wrong result and MLM is the absolute opposite.

Just was reading on the FFC website that the only player in doubt for Birmingham is Harry. 

http://www.fulhamfc.com/news/2019/november/08/matchday-preview

With that in mind, I think the back four will stay the same with Odoi, Mawson, Ream and Bryan.

No idea who Parker will pick for goalie.  I guess I lean towards Rodak. 

Still think Fulham do better when Steff is in the starting XI.  Need Harrison to play the strong holding midfieldier who stops the break aways from overwhelming and conquering our back four.

Looking forward to everything but the football today. I'm firmly in the Parker Out camp and expect another 3 nil loss. Let's hope I am proven massively wrong and look like an idiot by 5pm today.

Equally, Cavaleiro has 4 goals and 4 assists (twice as many as Knockaert in both respects) so not sure how he "delivers little"
