Games for mid-week 23/10

Another home game under the lights, this time against Derby County

Fulham v Derby County

Gaining the win over Barnsley put us top of the league, I must admit to thinking it would only be for 24 hours or so as Bournemouth played on Sunday however, our next opponents had different ideas beating them 3-2, for once Derby did us a favour?
Once again we spread the goals amongst the team, Mitro, as Gentleman Jim said “to be fair he hasn’t scored for 20 minutes”, Carvalho, Kebano, most improved player?, and if only for Seri’s exceptional pass for Wilson’s goal, for me, was the pick of the bunch.
After 7 wins in a row there’s a lot of talk over on the forum about how this team compares to Jean Tigana’s 2000-01 promotion winning season, its very difficult to pick who’s better however after last season, the improvement in the current squad is quite remarkable.

After another lot of points deductions, I’m not sure how its taken so long for the EFL to arrive at their decision however, Derby will be full of confidence after their win against Bournemouth. As our recent record against Derby is another “close affair” with 4 wins, 5 losses and 6 draws, “historically” this should be a close game although our respective league positions suggest otherwise? but we all know that there are no easy games in the Championship!

my team would be…
