Games for the Weekend 20/11…

We welcome Barnsley to the Cottage for a 3 o’clock kick off.

After a struggle at Peterborough, Mitro and Rodak saved the day we managed to grind out our sixth win on the bounce. Over on the forum “Jamie88” and “Dr Know” pointed out that the last time(s) we achieved this type of run was in 2000-01 season, 11 wins, and 1998-99 when we won 8 in a row. During our fabulous 23 match unbeaten run, under Jokanovic, we “only” managed 5 wins in a row.

Mitro has now scored 20 times, to put that in some sort of perspective here’s how he ranks against some the other teams in the Championship…
Mitro – 20
Swansea – 20
Reading – 20
Middlesbrough – 19
Bristol City – 19
Birmingham – 18
Preston NE – 18
Blackpool – 18
Millwall – 17
Peterborough – 17
Cardiff – 16
Derby – 13
Barnsley – 12
Hull – 11

As well as scoring for us Mitro’ continues to bang ’em in for Serbia, he managed a 90th minute winner against Portugal over the weekend knocking out Cristiano Ronaldo from the World Cup.

Mitro’ has 13 goal contributions in 7 games for club and country. 8 goals in 5 starts for Serbia, 20 in 17 for Fulham, better than anyone in Europe to date!

Our record against Barnsley is quite good, for some reason I thought it was bad, I tend to think of Barnsley as a boogy team?, anyhow we’ve 4 wins, 2 losses and 0 draws.

Odoi, having played well in previous games, for some reason struggled against Peterborough’s Dembele , so much so that he was subbed for Tete, I would imagine that Tete would now retain his starting place. Tom added a bit of guile when he was introduced so therefore, assuming no injuries on international duty, my team would be…
