Dunno why but this fixture stinks of us turning up and expecting to win. 1-1
I don't think any of us expect anything under Bruce...it's more hope than expectation that we can put in a performance, and a result is just a bonus.

I am going for a 1-1 - if I remember rightly at their place last season, the right back for Fulham was fantastic, so we will need to stop him.

Not often I get a home game on my birthday, so because of that I'll go for stonking 5-0 home win.

(in reality -  1-1)

If we can win this, I'll start to take our promotion chances seriously. I don't think we will, though.

Suspect we'll play 442 again and will struggle to see enough of the ball

If we win the next 3 I'll be more convinced of automatic promotion, tomorrow is a game we should be winning with some degree of comfort.

They will pass us to death and SB will have no answer to it until he makes the same uninspiring changes - both ineffective strikers off within  minutes of each other and a loan striker (Hogan) brought on with no service
Its all too predictable

0-0

And a chorus of boos as we all get worried going into the dog  shit game

They are a point behind us and have won their last 2 away games, so while I still expect us to win I donít think there is any reason to suggest it should be comfortable.

Hoying it down with rain. Gale force winds.
It's got 0-0 written all over it, especially as I'm coming up from London for it.

The Fulham manager made an interesting comments after their game with Preston last weekend. He said they were the best team on the ball in the league and Preston are the best off the ball.
