And so our deflating nights under the lights in front of the Sky cameras against West London rivals go on and on. Is there something in the DNA of the club that makes it so? 10+ out of 10 for work rate - a bit fat zero for guile so far!

Fulham have looked the more likely. Kind of lucky goal but all of a sudden the defence parted for him.

Pav is poor in attack but defensively excellent. I still want to see Wheeler played. We have signed a player in form, confident, scoring goals, how long before he loses all that?

Being left exposed at the back it's like 4 on 2 every time they break, how many times have I sat and watched us chase a game 2nd half with the away team attacking the school end with all there fans & we look wide open, this could get ugly unless we defend properly and don't throw the kitchen sink at them until we have to.

Keep your shape rangers it's only 1-0 keep yourselves in the game don't go all out and get suckered.

Bit harsh on here - think the team has put some decent passing together in patches - Pav has a hard job tonight - think the ref has allowed Fulham to get away with a few tactical fouls.

Bidwell should have scored from a great pull back and Fulham relying on pace.

Wheeler for Pav in the 2nd half, I agree, and Smith will almost certainly appear at some point. Mackie has also been pretty anonymous/ineffectual, but no one has really shone for me - the team reminds me of a litter of licky puppies. By contrast to our litter running up and down blind alleys, Fulham look composed, technically superior, and an attacking threat - at least half a league higher. They had a slice of luck for their goal, but it was coming; I think we carved out two chances at best that whole half.

We're not a bad team, but by god, we look limited.

I must be watching a different game, I think we played some good stuff in that half. They cut us open once or twice but we've had plenty of pressure on their defence

And skill. And guile. And a clear game plan . . . o, never mind.

For me take Robinson off. Get bidwell on the left side of the 3 centre backs. Move lynch. Get pawel on that left side and wheeler to the right. Pawel is left footed. Switch it up.

We've pressed, sure, but with what end product? Can't remember their keeper having a real save to make. We look like schoolboys at times, or shadow-chasers. Let's hope for some greater clarity this half.

There's definitely been some great passages of play, some of our passing has been fantastic, but like Stainroid says, the end product has been poor.
We're certainly not poor by any stretch, but we seem to be badly lacking quality.

Should have been 0-2 - we got very lucky there.

Decent effort from Mass down the other end.

Pav's strongest foot is the right, no?

Persistent fouling from Fulham all game. Surely the has to start going into the book for them.

Industrial but fair challenge from Lynch - a man you could never accuse of not being able to look after himself! Stretcher for the recipient. :twisted:

Ffs - our crossing has been as shocking as our shooting. What have we actually been practising in training this week - just running around?
