Games for the Weekend 29/12

Following the draws against Newcastle and Wolves, this Saturday we welcome Huddersfield to the Cottage for yet another “6 pointer”.

Fulham v Huddersfield

Well we’re off the bottom so at least we’re moving in the right direction.
With Burnley playing West Ham another 3 points could see us jump another place however, Huddersfield will leapfrog us if they win.
Ranieri looks to have improved our defence but the lack of a cutting edge is now an issue, Mitro has looked an isolated figure at times.

Huddersfield are having a terrible run at the moment, they’ve not won since they beat Wolves on November 25th, so they’ll be desperate to get some points (sound familiar?) The last game they won before that was, you guessed it, against us, so I’m certain that they believe they will get something out of the game.

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

Games for the Weekend – 08/12

This weekend we’re off to Old Trafford to give Manchester Utd a game

Man Utd v Fulham

After 3 “better” performances, our defence still needs some work but we’re going in the right direction. Playing Man Utd at Old Trafford will be one of the games that the players will have circled when the fixtures came out, I’m sure all of the lads will be up for it.

Ranieri hasn’t “tinkered” as much as I thought he would and he seams to be getting closer to playing the way he wants the team to play.

Man U had a tough game against Arsenal on Wednesday but I still think we’ll be lucky to get anything from this game, but you never know, the footballing gods may just decide to favour little old Fulham. COYW
