All over 0 - 2, good second half of football....if they are 3rd it’s a poor championshi

We were better team last 15 of first half and probably edged the 2nd.......but we lost 2 - 0....so counts for nothing.
Not looking for results right now but performances and that was a good one away against one of the best teams in the division ...

Manager to blame again for me. If Lasogga started he would have finished a few chances

Good effort and a tad unlucky, If Ekuban had put that chance in, who knows ? and dare I mention Grots miss, my better half would have put that in :shock:

2-0 defeat doesn't sound to bad if you want to clutch at straws

Ekuban should have scored no doubt, and Grot.

But so should Mitrovic shot 1st half, Mitrovic header 1st half, Ayite hit the post, Sessegnon shot going in but hit Mitrovic, Sessegnon good save BPF.

If Fulham took there chances it would have been 7-2.

Its only a good performance if you ignore them facts.

Final post here so no need to quote

BPF - 7 - One good save, maybe could have got down to the second and beaten by a complete fluke for the first
Dallas - 7 - Good game from him after a sluggish start, adjusted well to being ripped apart early
Beradi - 7 - Solid nothing much came down the left.
Jansson - 7 - Good game from him just needs a good partner
Pennington - 5 -
Alioski - 5 - Over exuberant today is trying too hard
Hernandez - 6 -
Saiz - 7 - Couldn't get into the game first half, all kinds of problems in the second
Phillips - 9 - All over the field putting out fires and starting things off
Vierra - 7 - Breaks up attacks like no one else we have, passing ok, couple of wayward ones though sees a point docked
Ekuban - 6 - Tries hard needs to practice those 1 on 1's but not the finished article by any means ...has potential
O'Kane - 4 - Poor to start then injured quick
Lassoga - 7 - To be honest I doubt he gets in the position Ekuban did but lovely run which I could see leading to a goal. He tends to score from there

Heck - 7 - Good passing game today again for the third game in a row.
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

thought it was a decent performance from the 2/3 of the game I watched - fulham a bit lucky to win imo though probably edged it with the chances they had at the start of the game

I just don't get the team selection and then use of subs. If Lasogga is likely to be a Leeds player next season then he should be starting but presumably he isn't which is why Ekuban started. But if that is the case then why replace Ekuban with Lasogga if the idea is to see whether Ekuban is good enough. And if the selection is being based on having a look to see if a player (Ekuban) is good enough for next season then surely Pearce should be playing at left back as Berardi and Dallas are not the answer there so we would be better to see if Pearce is good enough. It just seems like completely muddled thinking.

As for the game a decent second half performance but same story that we could have been 3 or 4 goals down before we got into the match. Certainly a positive that we played some good football at times in the second half but we already know these players are capable of playing good football so no new positives for me and would prefer to have seen 2 or 3 more youngsters starting or at the least on the bench and given minutes.

Just got back in. Took my two girls along (the little un's first game).

Not much to say really. We have forwards who can't score and two top class attacking midfielders that look utterly frustrated with everything and everyone around them. I'll be stunned beyond words if they're still here after September 1st.

BFP - 7 nothing of note
Dallas - 5 no end product
Jansson - 6 Silly booking
Pennington - 6 did ok
Berardi - 8 did enough, very Berardiesque
O’Kane - 6 then injured
Vieira - 8 was impressed today
Alioski - 4 terrible today. Decision making none existant
Saiz - 7 tried to create but wasn’t his day
Hernandez - 7 see Saiz
Ekuban - 2 isn’t a footballer

Phillips - 7 did well and I’m not usually a fan
Lasogga - 7 Always looks a class above our other strikers
Grot - 2 isn’t a footballer

Comfortable win for Fulham who didn't have to be at their best, if you're trying to take any positives from that then you're clutching at straws.

We need something between a red and a yellow. Not a red because he wasn't the last defender and a yellow not sufficient as it was a deliberate calculated professional foul. Maybe we need a sin bin (10 mins) for a foul like that.
Could work Harry but I would suggest a rainbow coloured card and
an exchange of football boots for ballet shoes an a lovely little pink fru-fru
for the rest of the game.

Wait... don't our players play as though they were in that outfit already?

Very true, you can sense that Pablo and Saiz are getting more and more agitated at the lack of quality around them. I shudder to think what will happen if we lose these guys. As you can bet your last pound, they wont be replaced by real like for like quality as its clear Radz just doesnt have the dough !!

I went down to Fulham last year, and I know we didn't win last night, but the performance for an hour was far better than Monk's team managed last season, where we were battered for the whole game, but managed to scrape a draw.

BPF - 6 Couple of decent saves, but maybe he could have done better with the goals. Kicking good.
Dallas - 5 Gave Sessegnon and Targett all the space in the world 1st half, improved 2nd half, although should have been booked for the dive.
Jansson - 5 Was bossed by Mitrovic all night, and was targetted (impeded) at every free kick and corner that Fulham had.
Pennington - 6 Fairly solid, nothing special.
Berardi - 7 Best of our defenders, stuck to the task well.
O’Kane - 2 Couple of usual sloppy errors before getting injured. No coincidence that we improved as a team once he went off.
Vieira - 8 Is the Vieira of last season finally back. A beast in the midfield.
Alioski - 6 Had lumps kicked out of him, but kept coming back for more.
Saiz - 6 Anonymous 1st half, but featured more second half. Pass of the night for Grot's miss.
Hernandez - 6 Hit and miss, but always likely to do something special.
Ekuban - 5 Needs sessions on how to finish one on one's.

Phillips - 8 Turned the game when he came on. Him and Vieira bossed the Fulham midfield for long spells.
Lasogga - 6 One good run when assaulted by Johansen, but otherwise quiet.
Grot - 5 Added a physical prescence, but deary me, that missed header.

Heck - 6 Sorted them out at half time, but we still are slow coming out of the blocks.

Referee - 3 Johansen and possibly McDonald should have been red carded for fouls on Lasogga and Alioski. Missed every foul on Jansson on their set pieces.

It was an expected result and on the positive side it wasn’t 4 or 5. We did create chances and better strikers would have put them away as everyone is aware. What frustrates me is our lack of awareness as to where our opposition are and the players seem to look at one another as if to say “was that my man or yours”. Similarly when we do break forward we can have a player in acres of space but never find him due to most of our team having blinkered vision. Roll on the end of the season then we can all watch the World Cup and dream about which players we”ll sign!!! ;-)
