That was probably the worst and most frustrating I've seen of us when we're chasing a goal in injury time.

First up. Authorities and Refs have got to put a stop to it. The constant falling over, feigning injury, taking x3 longer than earlier in the game could be managed by stronger refereeing before any rule changes (stop clock)

Second. What the hell were we doing? Dicking around at the back and giving the ball or a corner away. Fouling. Not pointing out their time wasting enough.

Probably wouldn't have scored but that's not the point! It's a really shit part of the game and further increases the importance of scoring first etc. I get the winning team won't mind but wish the authorities would just cut it out altogether.

I’ll also add that every time we had a throw in, there was magically a second ball thrown on every time from the Fulham ballboys. Can’t take anything away from Fulham tonight though, they was excellent and fully deserved the win. Unfortunately for Potter he got it wrong with the starting eleven with Mwepu involved.

Yeah, bad day at the office. We are good at killing games too. Never mind, onto Leicester on Saturday and hopefully a more characteristic performance from the lads.

let's be fair, fulham managed it excellently.

however I'm frustrated as to why we seem to point blank refuse to do anything other than try to play out from the back. I know that's our identity or whatever, but we have some excellent long ball passers in the team, we had a lot of pacy players on the pitch and fulham were mostly in our half, if we'd gone even slightly long we could've seen some good 1v1 or 2v2 situations, instead we fannied around at the back, with sanchez in particular seemingly wearing clown shoes this evening

They added almost 90 seconds

The ball was in play for about 40 seconds of that final “6 minutes”. Quite incredible shithousery from Fulham, can’t really argue with it but incredibly frustrating if the officials are weak.

Also - I assumed - bringing Mitoma and Lamptey on meant the whole point was to look for the quick break. Mega slow build up basically renders both players near pointless.

Noticed this, the multi ball already being used to waste time. Nor sure the Amex ball people up to speed on this yet though!
