31% possession? Really? Wankers. ;-)

Not at all, 32% according to the beeb
Is it some sort of Rope-a-dope strategy to make us the Greatest?

Good result we needed to bounce back and we did. How did Onomah do?
Provided much needed energy in the midfield,has a really good engine and you can see he could be a very good player.

We pressed higher up the pitch than we normally do which I was pleased about.

Naturally we got deeper and deeper but kept a good shape.

Great save by Johnstone to keep us in the lead.

Good energy was needed after last week.

Actually played well today, which is not something i've typed much since Bruce arrived.

Adomah ran his bollocks off.

Bruce still can't resist soiling himself, as shown by the two defensive subs he made. They won, so he got away with it

A proper game of football at last. We really worked hard to get the result doing exactly what Preston did to Fulham last week but without conceding at the end. Our defence is far superior. I'm glad we have a week to rest before the Rags game, the lads will need it. If we maintain the same levels of effort as we did today we'll win a lot more than we lose.

Fulham for all the possession they had will continue to get turned over unless they get a couple of decent strikers. For us it's a tough one calling the MOTM as pretty much everybody put in a shift. I'll give them all a 7 and Albert an 8.

Roll on Rag Week.

I thought it was as comfortable as a 2-1 can get. Looked a lot more organised with the 4-5-1 formation...i bet there is still a few pissed off people out  there though!. Nice 2 hour trip home with the Strongbow to keep me company..UTV.

We won, but taking our best players off so early? Recipe for disaster. Can tell Bruce is used to managing little shit teams.

Really?

If that's league games the first L should be a W

Well done today Bruce. The formation clearly worked today. I didn't fancy us today but it sounds like we played well, although that they were a threat too

I think the first time in half a dozen games that Fulham haven't scored in the last few minutes

Watched the match, thought Fulham were crap. Kept the ball for probably 25% of that stat between the back line going no where, lucky not to be dispossessed numerous times by Albert, Kod and Onomah. Thought we were very good, especially the first half. Still not sure on Snodgrass or Elmo but I had doubts about Albert, Johnstone and Hourihane last year and they've shut me up this season.

Hutton a new left back? Last 2 games he's played better than Taylor has since he joined. Terry can go to Chelsea and train once a week, don't care...he's vital.
