Big time yes, see my post below.
We played well, but made mistakes at both ends of the pitch which killed us. 
It happens, Gordon will know, don’t over react and move one.

We just need to learn and be a bit more cleaver v packed defence.

Sometime having to accept draws will not kill us as long as we continue to win the majority.

It’s also important to recognise defence is the first part of winning games and the 2 goals conceded were not acceptable for a team aiming to win the league.

I am looking forward to Kongolo being involved and I predict he will be massive for us.


Would love you to discuss these points please Russ.

Fans overreact to a win and do the same with a defeat. Many have yet to understand that football and sport in general isn't a computer game. Just because we beat a team above us doesn't mean we will beat all the teams below us.

I look at the unpredictability of the Championship in the same way I look at Womens tennis. Explain the results at the US Open and then come back to what is best in sport.

Fulham have had a poor last three games. We won one of them. Time will tell but it is just a shame fans can't understand  that there will be bad times as well as good however much the squad costs.
