Imagine if we had

Loftus-Cheek Nogaard Da Silva

Benhrama Toney Lookman

With Watkins and Forss first options on the bench...

Reckon we could have been a comfortable top 10 Prem team

Fulham are much, much, much better than Sheff U and WBA on this weekend's evidence. Need Burnley to be less sh*t now.

Well not sure how one can give that as a penalty tbh. Except for it's Fulham of course.

Harsh penalty to be fair . Liverpool look very average in this game.

So much better than they were even a month ago. Sheff Utd and the Baggies are doomed so now it’s looking a properly competitive fight to avoid the third slot... Burnley, Fulham, Brighton, maybe Newcastle and a couple of others too.

Only 2 players started that were starters last year, the remaining 9 were on the bench.

Credit where it’s due. They were brilliant today. Good in possession, aggressive, positive and defended like tigers.

Totally deserved their point and could well have won.

Brentford still has more wins this year vs Premier League teams this year (3) in three games than Fulham has in 12 games (2).

Fulham and QPR both to go down would work for me
This is probably heresy but I’d rather have Burnley, WBA and Sheff U down than Fulham as at least they play football and it’ll feel better not to have been beaten to promotion by them if they are able to stay up. WBA were nothing much beyond being consistent. Sheff U gave it large ever since coming up to the Championship for having done us over on Egan and O’Connell and have been massively found out. Burnley are just historically impossible to like. Fulham at least give us a couple of cracking derby games and a regular 6 points.

QPR are unfortunately safe as they’re nowhere near as dire as Forest, Derby or Wednesday and less limited than Rotherham or Wycombe.

Funnily, watching Liverpool in the first half reminded me of how we have struggled sometimes this season

A lot of good points.

They'll probably survive, but only because of weight of numbers. That is, if you look at their form since Lockdown was lifted in June (26 pts from 27 games), they must be genuine relegation candidates. However since there are another 6 or 7 equally poor teams, and only 3 to go down (obv), the odds are still in their favour.

Brilliant but toothless. It's no good playing that well and not winning as it won't last all season.

The clappers to welcome their heroes were peak Putney posers though. Did they have to book a seat for the sponge cake or is sharing slices a covid breach?

Early days, plenty of time for QPR to press that self destruct button.
Great work by Burnley, after all that hard work by Fulham, only to be leapfrogged.

Can't see Putney Strollers getting relegated - at least Voice will be able to "renew acquaintances" with Tarquin and his chums ;) next season and the ra ras will probably just about survive but you never know.

The season is only one-third of the way through. Plenty of time for one or more of the lower mid-table sides to slump into the relegation zone (it happens) or for one or even two of the bottom three to go on a run and haul themselves out of danger (that happens too).

That’s their good performance for this half of the season and only a point from it.

Now in the bottom 3 courtesy of Burnley’s win at Arsenal. Long may it continue.

Back in the bottom 3 after last night's results........... :)
With Sheff Utd seemingly a hopeless case, looks like 2 others from them, WBA, Burnley and BHA...........

Tricky one with them playing Newcastle tomorrow.....
Obviously ordinarily I would be cheering on a NU victory, but with us playing them on Tuesday, I'm wondering if a F***am win would be better for us, as it pulls Newcastle closer to a relegation battle......

Only one of the eleven starters for FFC the other night started in their first game of the season, according to Talkshite. They have shown signs of improvement recently. I fancy Brighton for the drop. They get a good press, and praise for their style but it is hardly serving them well and it is not beyond Allardyce to get WBA a couple of places up the table. Interesting that, crap as they have been, Sheffield Utd are not wholly adrift yet either although they are not far from it now.

They're the sort of team though who will put in the performances against the big boys. Not sure it'll be enough for them.

Brighton are seriously underperforming their xG though so might be expected to pick up their results. Whereas Fulham are pretty much dead on and Sheff U are doing so poorly that even if they achieved their xG they’d still be bottom three. Burnley and WBA are substantially overachieving compared to xG so are pretty much doomed!

Newcastle are also well ahead of where they should be on their performances so are ripe for the taking.

I wasn't much of a fan of science but having read your post I have changed my mind and am happy to do so in respect of Fulham and Newcastle although XG is not the predominant factor surely?

I agree it has its limits but it seems good enough for the Bees to take seriously and how can you knock it when it helps to provide objective justification for Fulham being rubbish?

Back out of bottom 3 after today but those around them have games in hand......
One good thing after today's result was Newcastle will be reviewing selection before QF on Tuesday.......

Burnley never go in line to xG anyway, they're a club you don't need to look into it too much. Burnley, out of all of the bottom five, probably have the tools to stay up the best.

Fulham have improved, they're staying in games more and they do have a chance now. They're still probably going to go down, but if Brighton don't pull their socks up, then they could overhaul them. WBA and Sheff U are likely to take the first two spots.
