Good afternoon all and welcome to our ‘Game On’ match article which will take us through every twist and turn of the Fulham game this afternoon.
It’s another home league game following on from the 0-0 draw against West Ham last weekend so we really should be looking to win this one.
It’s going to be tough though. We’re in a rut at the moment and Fulham are a good side who do well against us generally. In fact here’s a stat for you. Fulham have won more Premier League games against us than they have against any other current Premier League side. Not exactly good reading but it’s up to us to break that stat though and we have the tools to do so. It’s just a matter of realising how to best utilise those tools and get them to click.
The game itself will not be shown live here in the UK as it’s a Saturday, 3pm kick-off however there are lots of overseas TV channels which are broadcasting the game so the chance of watching it online are pretty decent. Same again, if you find a decent stream then please feel free to share it by leaving a link in the ‘comments’ section below.
Team news will be added in at the bottom of this article, in full, as soon as we can get it published. One note of late team news however is that Time Krul might miss the game after struggling with a groin problem but I guess we’ll soon find out.
And that’s that. Now we need to register our first league win of the season.
Howay the lads!
