They were only told on Monday that the game was being played on Wednesday-given them only two days notice.
My point is he was bleating about it up until KO................... Come full time hes as chipper as anything.

Like i said, funny what getting a point does for you.

Sounds to me like a non-story to avoid talking about the game, as Fulham played a lot better than we did up there and deserved their point.

Sad but that's what I saw.

Thing is, whether warned or not, Tottenham would have had the same warning.
Yes, they were due to play Aston Villa anyway, but two very different teams, different training needed for it. Its not just fitness training.
Plus, Tottenham played a late game on Sunday against a non league team on a heavy pitch. May not used all their stars but its wasnt their kids entirely out there.

They were very impressive and deserved to win. They've done well in the transfer market this season compared to when they were last in the PL and at a fraction of the cost.

They're staying up, sadly, there are far worse teams in the PL.

Fulham play far better without Mitrovic in the side. Have been impressed every time I have seen Lookman play.

But for some poor decision making when close to the Spurs goal they would have won this. It does look like Sheff Utd and WBA are for the drop unless Sam manages a big turn around in form. Brighton are poor though, never understand why there is so much positive stuff written about them. Perhaps they are going to be one of those "too good to go down" clubs like Forest and West Ham have been in the past who nevertheless went down anyway.

Newcastle are starting to resemble a proper bottom 3 club, have even lost that ability to scrape wins in those relegation 6 pointers which is always ominous moving forward.

Can also see the Blades escaping given they're not too far from safety as I think they'll start stitching some wins together soon.

I prefer it if Fulham stay up and we join them. Then we relegate them on the last day of 2021/22 season in front of a capacity crowd at the new staduim. Well, I need something to look forward to. 😆

Happy for them to go down and we can outsource relegating them again next season to someone else.

Looked decent tonight, in the first half especially, but they were always going to be under the cosh in the second, with ten men, but Chelsea were truly woeful.

When I watched the game tonight, I still got a brief twinge of “that could have been us”. It passes pretty quickly though and I am still comfortable with not going up and missing out in watching the Bees in the Prem in person.

Lot of bedwetters in this thread clearly expecting Fulham to be relegated already ;)

I've watched them play "really well" in loads of games so far this season, and come away with either 0 or 1 point.

The truth is, they're practically half way through the season and 4 points from safety -- a period which encompasses their so-called "good run of form". Let's be generous and say 36 points will be enough for them to stay up. That's a big ask. Certainly not impossible, but it would be a brave person who takes that bet.

Even Jeremy Clarkson has a go

There was an old lady on the news last week complaining that she’d had to wait in the cold for her jab and that there’d been too many steps and ramps in the vaccination centre. I couldn’t believe it. Scientists had developed something that would save her life. The workers of the country had paid for it. And all she could do was moan. If I’d been the interviewer, I’d have wheeled her into the river.
Which brings me on to Fulham football club. Unlike millions of people who are stuck at home, with no job to do and no social life, these footballists are allowed to meet up with their mates and do what they love once or twice a week. But when their fixture against Spurs was moved with just two days’ notice, they whined like stuck pigs. I’d have pushed them into the river as well.

Yesterday's defeat to Chelsea was the 73rd time the two teams have met in a league encounter. Fulham have won 7 of those.

In the Premier League, it's 1 win in 28 games, with the sole win being 21 games ago.
Chelsea football club: record v Fulham

Whereas Brentford have a 40% win rate in league games against Chelsea ;)

Yes I am sure you're right, unfortunately our win rate does not include games against them in the Premier League.
