Really not too gone on the Reed and Cairney pairing.

Reed making some useful interceptions but then giving the ball away.

Cairney...well it's Cariney.

Odoi doing very well.

Not sure how we didn't get a free when Maitland Niles clattered into Odoi.

They're both playing poorly imo
Disagree. AK is doing well. Cav is doing nothing

I think this as well.

Kamara gets an A for effort.  Cavaleiro has been more anonymous, I would say. That said, he just got a nice counter attack started.

I wonder what other Arsenal legends will be on the halftime panel?

Two corners won just now by FFC.  Last minute chance to score.

Not really a bad half all things considered.

Halftime. Fulham doesn't look out of their depth. Arsenal not looking that good. Their goal was fortuitous.

Apparently there was a pre-match scuffle between Arsenal players.

just need a bit more bite/effort  up front

 ive seen cairney on the ball facing forwards plenty of times and no one is making dangerous runs

we simply need more movement off the ball

Decent half.  We held up well after the early mistake, just need more in their half.  And I have to say, seeing the new kits in action now, I quite like them.

This.    Other than a few cracking goals...he doesn't play well in Scott's system.   Replace him with Babel and we'd at least have an attacking threat who can shoot from anywhere.  Old legs or not.

Cav at least tries to beat a man and has the ability AK just runs straight into defenders

I would really give Seri to Galatasaray and buy Babel from them.   He no longer starts for the Netherlands so he shouldn't be that worried about getting   international minutes if we don't stay up.

Babel is waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy more productive than Cav...and even Knock.  Plus he'd be less expensive than younger wingers.

Mitrovic should come in.

They are allowing us to cross and we need Mitrovic to sit on top.

Yeah seen that. Between Nketiah and Ceballos. Doing the rondo and one left the boot in on the other. Nothing more than handbags

Kamara looks tired after every sprint and he's had better games. Cavaleiro is invisible, but obviously capable performing when receiving the ball.

Time for Mitrovic and Knockaert, we still have 45min to go and their defense isn't very confident.

Not impressed except we are only 1 down,  usual pretty passing system but no attacking force, 2nd half will be different.

Looking for a good second half. Apart from the goal, I can’t see any difference in the teams, Fulham having to put more effort in to keep up though.

We still have Mitro, Anguissa and BDR to bring off the bench.


Can't let what happened in the second half two seasons ago at Craven Cottage happen again.   We've been defensively sound except for Ream not making his clearance.    We need to keep it up.

Decent considering the quality of the opposition. We've stayed in the game and attacked well down the wing. We need to get the ball forward a bit quicker though.

Defensively much room for improvement, we're giving them too much time on the ball and they're playing through us. I'd like to the front three press high, especially against Holding, who isn't as comfortable on the ball.

We're also very exposed on the wing, especially our left wing. More tracking back from the wingers needed, especially Cav.

I'd give it 15 minutes then think about bringing on Mitro and Anguissa for Cav and Cairney.

We are not going to boss possession against Arsenal so the attack is going to look poor for most of the game. That is not to say they are poor because AK is doing well. They are just being starved of the ball.

This is the inequality of the premier league.

We are not doing bad at half time.
