I hate playing Fulham, one of those teams we seem to struggle against- going to be a tough game - as always it’s going to be interesting
This.

I'm feeling optimistic though - think we'll scrape a score draw against the bogey team

At the end of my tether
Fulham are a bogey team and we have struggled against them , but we have to ame today the day we change that. If we lose and either West Ham or Man U win, we go down the table .
After last Thursday we should be buoyed up, so let’s go on to victory! ( I hope.....) Anyway. whatever :albion2:

We battered them at the Amex last season but they got away with one of the flukiest wins you’ll ever see.

Hopefully we can get an early goal otherwise I expect to see them take time wasting to the extreme like they did last year. Especially as we have an awful referee today.

I can't forget that game, with the smash and grab at the end.
It was the most Potteresque performance in the RdZ era

Both us and Fulham have scored AND conceded in ALL of our Premier League fixtures this season so far...

We've scored in 25 consecutive Premier League fixtures now... the last time we failed to do so was... against Fulham.

We have NEVER beaten Fulham in the top flight. If they win today they'll have won 3 times in a row against us.

This has 0-0 written all over it.

Liverpool don't get the official who screwed up for the rest of the season but Salisbury gets promoted from VAR to taking one of our games?
