Games for mid-week 29/08

We welcome Spurs to the Cottage for a 19:45 Carabao Cup game under the lights

Fulham v Spurs Carabao Cup

Spurs are the highest ranked team(?) in this round so we can be a little unlucky to draw them as apposed to some of the other teams such as Plymouth, Tranmere, Wycombe, Gillingham, Harrogate Town etc.
I’m sure that Spurs probably think the same, Premier League teams will always be tougher opposition, having said that, this is the cup and “giant killings” happen every year.

I think this could be an opportunity to play some of the “second team” and younger players to give them some competitive game time.

my team would be…

Games for the Week-end 23/01

We welcome Spurs to the Cottage for an 8 o’clock Monday evening kick-off

Fulham v Spurs

Well I guess the winning streak had to end at some time, if only Mitro had kicked the ball correctly I’m sure we’d have, at least, come away with a draw? It was a far closer game than October’s, having 11 players on the pitch helped no end.
Considering we played Thursday night a Sunday early afternoon kick-off its hardly surprising we didn’t play at 100mph for the full game, not an excuse but it was painful to loose another game in the last five minutes.

I think this will be the first time that Ryan Sess’ will play at the Cottage since he left? I know that he’ll get a very good reception, I still think of him as “one of us”.

Spurs currently sit one place above us on 33 points and a goal difference of +10, if we beat them we’ll leapfrog them into 5th, giddy heights indeed!

Our record against them is much the same as against Chelsea with 2 wins, 14 losses and 3 draws.

Current Form:
Fulham: WWWWL
Spurs: DLWLL

Assuming no injuries my team would be…

Games for the Weekend 19/01

Following the disappointing result against Burnley last weekend this Sunday we welcome Spurs to the Cottage

Fulham v Spurs

The “good news” for Fulham is that it looks like Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-min will all miss the game, “clutching at straws” I know.

Will our new signing, Ryan Babel, get a run out and if so what difference will he make? Is a game against a ‘top six’ side the kind of game that Claudio Ranieri would want to introduce him? it certainly would be a baptism of fire.
