Games for the Weekend – 15/12

On Saturday we welcome another London team, West Ham Utd to the Cottage.

Fulham v West Ham

The 2nd half against Man Utd showed a much better performance, certainly compared to the 1st half, so hopefully we can continue that improvement against West Ham.

West Ham have improved since their poor start to the season so I think this game will be more of a test as to how Ranieri has ‘improved’ Fulham.

Due to injury Ryan Fredericks, he’s out for the rest of the year at least, won’t get a run out against us, players always seem to have good games against their previous clubs?, his pace could have caused us problems? …and if he’s learned to cross a ball we could have been in real trouble?

Two forwards who, if fit, might be a cause for concern for the Fulham back four are Chicharito and Andy Carroll who’s speed and height would be a concern even if our defenders were full of confidence. Still Mitro and Ryan Sess can/will cause the hammers defence problems, so I’m expecting a good competitive game. COYW
