When I saw the fixture list I actually quite welcomed it and thought a very probable tonking against Arsenal in the first day would be very good for us, and then we have 8 or 9 games against lesser teams where we can / have to really make our points.

This is a good wake up call, so long as we learn things from it.

I'd consider taking Hector off, this ref will book him for the slightest foul.

Arsenal about score again. Rodak saves. Nice run by Aubameyang.

Are we seeing why Hector was unwanted by a PL team for so long today?

This.

Arsenal are the best team we'll face for a month.    We need to learn from it, vet in better players at certain positions.

Both Cav and Kebano can be upgraded.   They aren't starters in the EPL.

straight away this looks better

possibly helped by them taking the foot off the throttle a bit?

This. And as soon as they step up the pace we struggle.

They just beat Liverpool.

Arsenal may finish in the top 4.

What was Hector doing there?  Keeps getting caught out so far upfield and just letting the attackers past.  Has happened a few times now.

We do not have the intensity or the chasing down for a team battling against relegation. Need to work far harder in these games.

Clearly a step up. These games were almost always going to end in 0 points.

That said, we do need an attitude change. There are fewer games in the PL and we can up the intensity. We also have a decent sized squad ie Knockaert and D Reid to come on if our wingers tire.. so should chase the ball down more.

Playing out from the back in the PL plays into teams like Arsenal’s hands. It just looks out of place. We can do it against teams like Villa but not the top sides. Need to pivot off Mitrovic.

Interesting glimpse of Anguissa. Confidence and an intriguing willingness to give and go outside the box.

Think it’s a bad start for Ream who was already on borrowed time in the first team and needed some good performances to cling on.

Hector off the pace today.

Decent performances otherwise.

Yes it’s Arsenal but I was hoping for more than this.

This looks exactly like the last ride in the Premier League. This Squad needs quality desperately.

Kenny Tete is an ok signing and is a good RB defensively. Fulham need more than one quality defensive signing and at least some creativity up front. Kamara will not perform at this level.

Midfield is decent if Scott can add some quality in offense and defense. If not the destination will be Championship next season

Van someone explain to an outsider why Fulham is not spending the promotion money?

Aubameyang is what is happening.
