Games for Mid-week 10/12

Yet another evening game, this time we travel to Deepdale to play Preston North End for a 19:45 kick-off.

Preston North End v Fulham

So our winning streak came to end with a home defeat, it had to end some time and in truth we didn’t play well enough, even with poor refereeing decisions, against Bristol City.
Neeskens Kebano, when he came on, showed some nice touches and AK47 changed the game, why didn’t he start? Away to Preston we’ll need to play a lot better and have a better game plan or we’ll get nothing out of the game.
Preston also lost at the weekend, they were away to QPR, so they’ll be looking to get a result against another “London” team. They’ve had a pretty consistent season so far being around or above sixth place, we’ve averaged ninth.
However our record against Preston is a good one, we’ve won four and drawn two.

Games for the Weekend 07/12

Saturday afternoon, 3 o’clock, how unusual we get to play Bristol City at the Cottage on a “normal” day and time.

Fulham v Bristol City

Our boys must be full of confidence as we’ve won four on the trot and we’re only five points from the top spot sitting just behind West Brom and Leeds in 3rd place.
Mitro is still on fire, 15 goals now and not looking to slow down anytime soon. Rod├ík has settled quickly, especially for a young goal keeper, he’s on 22, as keeper’s don’t normally hit their prime until their late 20’s or early 30’s, he’s a very exciting prospect.

Bristol City had a great result last weekend thumping Huddersfield 5-2. In recent years we’ve had mixed fortunes against Bristol City, we’ve only won twice and lost four times, once in a cup game.

Games for the Weekend 29/11

Yet another non-Saturday 3 o’clock kick-off, this time Friday 19:45 see’s us travel to Wales and the Liberty Stadium in order to take on Swansea City.

Swansea City v Fulham

Tuesday evening saw us gain a comfortable win over Derby, always a good thing! Swansea had a tough draw away to Huddersfield so both teams will be approaching this fixture with an air of confidence.
A couple of downers were the injuries to AK47 and Bobby De Cordova-Reid, a shame for both AK would have been hoping to cement his place in the team and Bobby Reid getting his first goal.
Swansea have been something of a bogie team for Fulham with 5 wins, 1 draw and only 2 wins for us against them. Let’s see if we can get a 3rd win against them!

Games for Mid-Week 26/11

Tuesday evening at the Cottage, this time we take on Derby County.

Fulham v Derby County

After a shaky start Friday evening the lads eventually came good with AK47 getting a couple of well taken goals.
Scotty Parker will have to think hard and long about his inclusion in the starting eleven now that Mitro has served his one match ban.
If the two of them could form a partnership they would be truly frightening to any team.

Derby also had a home win, their fifth successive home win, against Preston North End on Saturday however they’ve not had too much success on the road.

Games for the Weekend 22/11

So we get another Friday evening game, this time it’s against local rivals Queens Park Rangers.

Fulham v QPR

Is it me or do there seem to be far too many “international” breaks this early in the season?
Anyhow following our good away win unfortunately, due to collecting too many yellows, we’ll be without the leagues most potent attacker Mitro for this weeks game however, QPR will also be without Geoff Cameron for the same reason, clutching at straws I know but they’ll be without a “key” defender, perhaps they cancel each other?
Tom Cairney and Joe Bryan could be back from illness and injury so it will be interesting to see how Scott Parker lines up the team without Mitro?

Our “head to head” against QPR so far is 6 wins, 2 losses and 2 draws, following their home draw against Middlesborough last time out, QPR boss Mark Warburton said “We have taken two points from 12 but the boys have been hard done by in a couple of games.” I’m sure he’ll not be hard done by playing against us but I hope it turns out to be only two points from 15.

Games for the Weekend 09/11

This weekend with travel to Birmingham for another 3 o’clock kick-off.

Birmingham City v Fulham

Well after last weekends dreadful game, hopefully we can get back to something like how we should be playing this weekend. Loosing Joe Bryan so early in that match seemed to throw off our play, with any luck he won’t be out for too long.

Birmingham lost away to Cardiff last time out so they’ll be looking to make full use of their home advantage as they’ve won 5 of their 6 home games, only loosing to Preston NE.
A good bit of news, for Fulham, is that City’s captain Harlee Deen was given a red card so he will be suspended for their next 3 games.

Games for the Weekend 02/11

This Saturday we’re back at the Cottage and welcome Hull City for a 3 o’clock kick off

Fulham v Hull City

Hull manage to beat Derby 2-0 so they’ll be full of confidence and after playing with 10 men for most of the game we managed to hold on for the draw, also we kept a clean sheet!, let’s see if we can finish the game with 11 men this weekend and we might get the result we want?

Surprisingly? we’ve not got a good record against Hull with 6 losses, 2 draws and only 3 wins, lets see if we can improve that this weekend.

Games for the Weekend 26/10

So we travel up to Middlesbrough for our weekend game.

Middlesborough v Fulham

Following on from his hat-trick against Luton Mitro is currently the leagues top scorer, he really is on fire!
Middlesborough could only manage a draw against Huddersfield and I’m sure they’ll be looking to get a result at home.

Games for mid-week 23/10

So for another mid-week game at the Cottage we welcome the “Hatters” Luton Town.

Fulham v Luton Town

Well the game against Stoke didn’t go as we’d planned, I guess the unbeaten run had to end sometime and it’s probably no surprise that we lost to the bottom team, how Fulhamish!
One of our American friends HatterDon will have been looking forward to this game, he’s got a soft spot for Luton, and probably whatever the result he’ll enjoy the game.

We really need a result from this game if we want to stay in touch with the teams at the top of the table.
Luton will be a tricky one, they beat Bristol City who were on a 10 match unbeaten run, at the weekend and will be full of confidence, especially if they look at our 1st half performance against Stoke, we can’t play that badly again, can we?

Games for the Weekend 19/10…

So after the international break we travel to Stoke for a 3 o’clock Saturday kick-off.

Stock City v Fulham

Well Mitro’s certainly enjoying his football both on international duty, he’s now sixth in Serbia’s all time goal scorers he’s currently scored 31, and domestic, so far 8 goals this season, how lucky are we to have him?
We’re coming off a six game unbeaten run, although the 2 draws somehow felt like losses.
Meanwhile, Stoke have had a poor start to the season, so far only drawing 3 however they beat Swansea, at Swansea!, last time out, so they’ll be full of confidence and looking to get one over on us.
Our record against Stoke is remarkably even, in the last 15 games we’ve won 7, Stoke have won 7 and we’ve drawn 1 game, hopefully we can add to the win number this weekend.
