Could do with Fulham winning or drawing this.

Interesting to read the Wolves forum (cocky on there some of them).

But, many games they have said they were lucky, offers hope.

Sharp couldn't hit a barn door when he was at Leeds, typical blunt

Plenty of goals in the championship in the first half-hour

Good point for the Rams down at Craven Cottage

I find it unbelievable how low Fulham are in the championship, they are so good on the ball with wave after wave attacking, lost count how many fantastic balls went into the Derby box. Amazingly Scott Carson had little to do in the Derby goal as the Rams central defenders seem to be in the right place at the right time. On that showing I still wouldn't write Fulham off as they have some quality clever players who look extremely dangerous around the box, they are quite capable of going on a decent run.

A draw was a good result for us as long as we can get our act together over the next week, if not we can forget any play-offs hopes as we'll be looking over our shoulders at the clubs around the relegation zone in 2018

I remember the first (or one of the first) goals he scored for us. He ripped his shirt off - it might have after the game - and ran to the fans celebrating. They loved him and I was hopeful that we'd finally got someone who could score goals, but I guess it wasn't to be.
I don't know what went wrong, maybe those around him weren't good enough and didn't play to his strengths. Maybe the manager was a prat and didn't realise his potential or cater for others to support him. You think now what it could have been like with him scoring for us and we already had him.

Oh well!

Whether they're good or not, they keep winning. They're better than we were last season because they're playing well (mostly) from reports. I hope they top the league, 'cos we aren't going to.

They are a good side.

But by there own admission they could easily have lost quite a few they won, in itself mark of Champions tbf.

But some of them on Evertons forum telling Evertom fans they are a bigger club, and claiming they would be top half Premier league was ridiculous.

Dont dislike Wolves, one of my childhood mates was a fan so always had a soft spot for them.

Fulham with 64% of the possession are winning 1-2 at Bramall Lane after Clarke had given the Blunts a 6th minute lead
