American Rover12 Posted September 18, 2008 Share Posted September 18, 2008 Forward: Sorry for the delay, Uni picked up on me in the last two days. Hope it's a decent enough preview Our next match sees us tied up with Fulham at home. Home happens to be the last place we beat Fulham in this fixture two seasons ago. The last four matches have turned out like such: Home 06/07 – 2-0 Win Away 06/07 - 1-1 Draw Away 07/08 - 2-2 Draw Home 07/08 - 1-1 Draw Anyone remember that old Benni Mac? I don't The fixture last season away was a particular frustrating one for us. Two great goals for us(one offside admittedly) and two shabby goals for them. Nelson was the culprit of that ghastly tackle in the box to give Fulham a Penalty and the lead. Fulham seem to always be poking and prodding away at the opposition. Fulham are sitting pretty in the 7th place position right now having downed Notlob this past weekend. They certainly have their things together as they don’t look anything like the Fulham team that was almost relegated last year. A whole mess of moves in as well as out of Fulham this past window has apparently done something right, and they head into Ewood on a bit of a hot streak. Hopefully though, this will be the game that parks their return to the form they displayed last season, finishing with security in the top flight just barely at the 16th spot and only as high as 12th the year before. The key to stopping Fulham I feel will be in the midfield. They’re deceptively capable of quite a bit of skill be it passes or the odd shot. Davies, Bullard, Murphy and Gera should be the ones making the start if I am correct, and Gera has a goal already this season. However, shutting them down there will not allow Zamaora or fat old A.J.(if they play him) to get any sort of service. It’s also odd seeing the team that fielded so many American’s is now down to just one. Looks like the nickname Fulhamerica is out the door. We need Warnock to snap out of whatever funk he’s in for this game; it will allow Nelson to stop messing around too. I blame a lot of Nelson’s crap performance last week on him trying to pick up men Warnock let go. Andrews? Put up or shutup. You’re not looking bad but you’re definitely not looking up to par. I say a nice 3-0 win for the lads at home, and a confidence boost in a clean sheet for Robbo. Santa with 2 and Peds with a free kick goal. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
