What frustrates me the most is you knew Fulham were going to do this so you have to stick far more bodies in there to win the ball (cleanly as clearly a foul results in more wasted time). Of course its easier said than done. Just frustrating as we were all over them and did everything but score the equaliser. Very unlucky with the deflected OG. Fulham got lucky and they knew it they were hanging on. Gotta bounce back against Leicester.

As frustrating as it was, it was good game management by Fulham - although I thought their subs getting involved was out of order, as was two balls on the pitch.

What infruriated me more was in the very final minute of added on, added on time... We should have had a free kick for a clear foul well inside their half, which would have given us one last opportunity to whip the ball into the box. Overall, I think the ref had quite a good game but no idea how he missed that.

I would have thought we needed to do the opposite and stick far fewer bodies in there. We added to the congestion which made it easier for Fulham. Entirely our own doing so no point blaming the opposition or the ref either.
 
The whole situation could have been avoided two minutes into the extra time after Fulham lost the ball following their free kick. We're 2-1 down with 4 minutes to play and STILL we tippy tappy at the back when Fulham still have SEVEN players in our half. Lob the ball Into their half and immediately the pressure is relieved, easy no?

This. Had it been us (like the women in the Euro final recently) we'd have been laughing. Live by the sword, etc. .....

The women did it fairly though, simply by keeping the ball and winning throw-ins. What I found a little irritating last night was the two-balls, diving to the ground and so on. But yes, if it had been us...

It's so long since we lost that I'm stunned and perplexed. It should come naturally to deal with the emotion of defeat, but I'm strangely struggling today.

I think it was unexpected that they weren't sitting back a bit more. In the heat of battle and frantic action I don't think we cottoned on that they had pushed up so high, so imagined we could work the ball out. When we did try to launch it, it sliced up, or went out, so didn't really help either.

Yes, Fulham did cheat (multiball etc.). That probably wasted an extra minute on top of the many minutes eaten up by legitimate time wasting. We still had most of 90 minutes to play football in, though. I was concerned with our amateurish response to the time wasting. And I was more concerned with the poor defending that gave them two goals, and risked more. In attack we were let down by the final ball, not the absence of a Mitrovic. We deserved to lose.

It's not very Potterball but sometimes you just have to hoof the ball up the pitch and see what happens in this circumstances. We had a goalkick which was passed to Webster, and a few moments later they had a corner.
