    Fulham face QPR on Tuesday and most importantly they'll be doing it without Mitrovic who has been banned for three matches for the elbow he threw on Saturday.

    Mitrovic entirely deserves that punishment. It was incredibly stupid. He's shown a lack of discipline this season which I put on the manager.

    QPR have lost both of their matches since the restart 0-1. So at least one team is finally going to get points in this match. Someone needs to step up with Mitrovic out. Kamara has been able to do it in the past, I say he deserves another shot (and I can't believe I'm saying that about him, but desperate times).

    The match is only available on FFCTV.

    Mitro had the reputation of being a knucklehead and for the most part hasn't showed it, but he left the team in a lurch over this (deserving of the ban for sure). There is enough talent to step up, and there are a whole bunch of veterans that rallying the troops shouldn't be a problem. Got a weird feeling the boys are going to put in a shift and grab all 3 points.

    Is Kamara available? I assumed that he’s been quarantined the last two matches. So even if he’s available, he’s probably not fit. Maybe Stansfield can step up.

    I’m baffled by Mitrović‘s actions. What got him all riled up within three minutes? I could possibly justify something happening at the end of a match when the other team has been physical (which is basically every game), but within two minutes?

    Not sure what to expect with the lineup. Parker is going to have to start rotating guys through with seven matches in 23 days. (Side question: where’s Mawson?) I will be interested to see if some of the youth players get called in and how they fare.

    Parker said in his press conference today that he is still out. Bummer. While researching it I was reminded that Kamara scored both Fulham goals in their come-from-behind victory against QPR back in November.

    And good question about Mawson too.

    Mitro didn't cheap shot the guy because he was angry. There hadn't been an earlier clash. He did it because the ref was looking the other way.

    I guess he was trying to get under Leeds skin? Trying to provoke them? Either way it didn't work. Mitro was only effective when dropping back to receive the ball with his back to the net. We couldn't get him the ball inside the box at all.

    By the way, this match is the very uncommon 1:30 PM east coast kick-off.

    I guess we'll line up a wall of attacking midfielders with Mitrovic, Kebano, and Kamara all out. Someone will need to figure out how to get the ball to a Fulham player in the box. The team definitely excels at moving the ball from Rodak through the middle of the pitch and right up to the edge of the attacking 18-yard box. Then most of the time, they pass the ball back and start all over again.

    Things I said during the game:
    "Arter starting? What the actual f@#&?!" Arter goes on and scores the tying goal.
    "Somebody tell Christie to stop shooting because he can't shoot!" Christie goes on and scores the winning goal.

    So you never know what's going to happen.

    If you had Arter and Christie on the scoresheet for today, please PM me your numbers for the next PowerBall drawing.

    Highlights from Fulham's YouTube channel - THANK YOU FULHAM!


    The highlights don't really do this justice, but as the game went on I realized the person operating the fake crowd noise at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium is the Da Vinci of faux fan sounds. I knew a master was at work when a fake ironic cheer came up when the home goal keeper sent a ball straight out of bounds at one point. Well done. Someone get a new version of the Real Men of Genius Bud Light Ads for this person.
