Games for the weekend – 26/08

We get to travel to Arsenal for a 3 o’clock kick off

Arsenal v Fulham

Lets forget about the Brentford game, just a really, really “bad day at the office”? as Gentleman Jim said for some reason Brentford appear to have “an Indian sign” over us, apart from the play off game they always appear to have the upper hand?
Tim Ream getting sent off was the cherry on top, the red card means that he’s unavailable for this game, at least we’ve got Bassey.

Talking of unavailable, Mitro finally got his move to Saudi, personally I wish him well and thank him for the 5 1/2 seasons, now we have to face life without our talisman.

Last season’s fixture was an unlucky one for us, we really should have come away with something, perhaps we can pull off a surprise this time?

Our recent record against the Gunners is woeful with 2 wins, 11 losses and 5 draws

Will we get to see the shocking pink away kit for the first time?

assuming no more additions, departures or injuries my team would be…

Games for the Weekend 27/08…

For our second derby game of the season we visit Arsenal for a 17:30 kick-off

Arsenal v Fulham

Arsenal have had an impressive start with 3 wins and this will be the toughest test for us so far however, after the Brentford game I think that we’re in a good place to take on the “in form” team.
I sure that Leno will start and that he’ll have something to prove against his old team, Mitro will want to keep his goal tally on the up, to score against the league leaders would silence even more of his doubters?
Mbabu’s couple of substitute appearances has lead to some excellent crosses for Mitro, I think he deserves a start.

Our record against Arsenal, 2 wins, 10 losses and 5 draws, if we get anything out of this game then the team confidence will be sky high.

My team, assuming no injuries…

Games for the New Year

After a win & clean sheet on Saturday we now travel to North London to face Arsenal for our first game of 2019

Arsenal v Fulham

As a ‘by-the-by’ the very first game I attended was Fulham v Arsenal on New Years Day 1966, on that occasion we won 1-0, and I was hooked! How much I’d love to see a repeat of 52 years ago.

I’m guessing that AK47 won’t be in the squad as a punishment for his penalty antics on Saturday, even if he’d scored I’ve a feeling that he wouldn’t have been included?

Arsenal are having a bit of a bad run at the moment having lost against Liverpool, Spurs and Southampton, drawing against Brighton and only beating Burnley in their last 5 games, so it looks as if they’ll be looking forward getting a result against us.
