Games for the weekend 04/11

After 3 successive away games we get to welcome Man Utd to the Cottage for a 12:30 kick off

Fulham v Man Utd

After a hard fought draw against Brighton, the second half was so much better than the first, and an impressive cup game I’m sure Marco will have his work cut out deciding the team to start against Man Utd.
Muniz added a different dimension when he came on against Brighton and had a really good game against Ipswich, not only getting a goal but generally causing a nuisance to the Ipswich defenders. Having said that I wouldn’t start him against Man Utd, at least not as a “lone striker”, perhaps part of a “two” with either Raul or Vinicius but I can’t see Marco playing a 4 4 2?
I’d start Pereira, I always think a player has a good game against one of his previous teams, also he was another who had a good game against Ipswich.

Man Utd are having a, for them, difficult season, loosing their last two games, Man City & Newcastle (in the Cup), 3-0, I’m sure they’ll be targeting this game as a “definite 3 points”.

our recent record against Man Utd is dire with only 2 wins, 16 losses and 3 draws

Fulham Supporters Trust in conjunction with the Fulham Lillies have organised a joint ticket price protest, on the 18 minute mark fans are encouraged to hold up a yellow card with the legend “PLEASE DON’T PRICE US OUT”.
With luck, providing most supporters in the ground, participate the resulting publicity will give the club food for thought.

My team, assuming both Diop and Vinicius are available…
