Games for the Week-end 11/02

We welcome fellow promotees Nottingham Forest to the Cottage for a “traditional” 15:00 Saturday afternoon kick-off

Fulham v Forest

Isn’t it strange that as a Fulham fan I can be disappointed with only taking 4 points from Chelsea this season!? Much has been said of Chelsea’s spending over both transfer windows, how have they got away with spending so much, FFP and all that?, anyhow the way that Marco has made Fulham such a cohesive unit, every player playing for the “team”, really fluent in possession, well drilled off the ball, very difficult to break down and full of confidence, shows that you don’t have to spend a large fortune to gain success.

Forest have also spent a fortune in both transfer windows, they’ve bought around 30 players and currently sit in 13th, 6 points off of 18, i think that their still in the mist of the relegation battle and will be desperate for any points.
The 2-3 scoreline from September’s reverse fixture didn’t really tell the story of the game. Fulham found themselves a goal down early in the game only to score 3 times in five minutes in the second half, Forest, against the run of play, scored a consolation late on in a largely comfortable game for Fulham.

Current Form:
Fulham – WWLLD
Forest – LDWWW

Our recent record against Forest is reasonably even with 7 wins, 5 losses and a draw

Following the injuries to Tom and Harrison in the Sunderland game, Tom looked more serious than Harrison, however I think that Lukic will get a start in Harrison’s place, so my team would be…

team to face Nottingham Forest at home
