    I do believe that the next four Fulham matches will be on ESPN+
    That would be Bristol City, Brentford, QPR, and Leeds [not in that order, of course]

    These are also key matches in our promotion push. COY Bleedin' W!

    Yes, you are correct about ESPN+. Also of note:
    • None of these matches occur at the usual Saturday kick off time
    • Bristol City this Saturday March 7 is the matinee - airing at 0730 EST
    • Brentford is Friday March 13
    • Leeds is Wednesday March 18
    • QPR is also the matinee on March 21
    • Additional also of note: the UK doesn't start daylight savings until March 29 so the last three matches will be an hour later than normal in the USA
    All of these matches are massive in Fulham's quest for promotion. Three against fellow contenders, one against the next door rival, and three on the road. The results of these matches may paint a completely different picture in the table come March 22.

    The 10 matches left in the season are going to be a gauntlet. Not sure we'll make the automatic promotion spots anyway, but boy howdy here are our opponents and their current standing as of this writing:

    @Bristol City, 7
    Brentford, 5
    @Leeds, 2
    @QPR, 14
    Brum, 15
    @Forest, 4
    Cardiff, 11
    @WBA, 1
    Sheff Wed, 12
    @Wigan, 19

    I'm choosing to take some small comfort in the fact we've played better against the stronger sides in the league this season whilst mostly stinking up the joint against the bottom feeders. At least that's my impression, and I'm choosing to believe it whether it's true or not.
