    Not so very long ago, Clint was scoring a hat trick against this club at the Cottage in the FA Cup. Now???
    We just need to win.
    Not play well.
    Not dominate possession.
    Not have more scoring chances.
    Not have more shots on goal.
    Not keep a clean sheet.
    Not get out coached.
    Not start our best 11 players.
    Just win.
    Period.
    Thanks for listening.

    Charlton has lost 4 and drawn 8 at home from their 20 matches The Valley, so while a solid team at home no reason the lads can't travel across town and get at least a point.

    It's scoreboard watching time and Monday has already seen some results; The Good: Wigan lost to Derby. The Bad: Rotherham and Huddersfield won, but with a silver lining. Rotherham beat Brighton 1-0. Rotherham now moves ahead of Fulham on GD, but if Fulham wins maƱana they would move ahead of both Rotherham AND Brighton.

    I hate to poo poo on Joe's silver lining but that requires a Fulham win. Winning is probably going to require not allowing goals against and I'm struggling to see that scenario playing out. I guess all I'm seeing at the moment is more storm clouds on the horizon.

    Come on Fulham, prove me wrong!

    Charlton have attempted the least amount of shots in the league and conceded more than anyone except for very-recently-relegated Blackpool. Their TSR is 23rd. Despite being 11th this is not a good team.

    What they are good at is shooting on target, and scoring.

    Our defense is doodoo but if we can limit their shot selection, similar to what we did to Derby (a team that doesn't shoot often but when they do they make it count) last month, then we have a very good chance at winning this.

    Sounds like a good plan, timmy

    Charlton are in midtable with nothing really left to play for form. If Fulham get the early goal and can keep 11 players till the end of the match, they just might win. Please?

    Snoozer of a lineup again. No wing players, oodles of center mids. C'est la vie.

    Good start! Seems like the only time we have a chance at a result has been when we score first.

    You managed to turn one point into three. If only Fulham could do the same.
