We’re back in the Premiership!, and for our first game we welcome Arsenal to the Cottage for a 12:30 kick off.
My very first Fulham game was against Arsenal, New Years Day 1966, we won that 1-0 and I was hooked!
Now we’re back in the Premiership, let’s hope that we’ve learned some of the lessons from last time?, and this season we prove to be more of a contest, 80+ goals against can’t be repeated.
So far we’ve not gone overboard with the spending, the “window” remains open until October so there’s still time?
It’ll be interesting to see if any of the “new” players will either start or even be on the team sheet, Antonee Robinson, Mario Lemina, Harrison Reed, so glad he signed, and who they’ll replace? I wonder if Anguissa will get a game now that he’s returned from loan?, there’s been no mention of Seri returning.
With little time “pre-season” I just hope that they’ll have had enough time to adapt to Fulham. If we do sign anyone else before the end of the week I can’t see them starting against Arsenal.
Our record against Arsenal isn’t too good, 8 wins, 10 draws and 39 losses, Arsenal have won the last 5 scoring 15 and conceding only 3…
time to put that right!
