    Another short turnaround for our heroes at Loftus Road. I'm looking for even more goals than at the City Ground now that Kamara, Kebano and Johansen are back on track. Should open things up for the others. Would really, really, really like a clean sheet. If there's anyone we can get it against, it's these punchless neighbors. Friday night football, woo hoo!

    Cairney and Ayite are still out and Kamara is TBD. Kamara had a good game on Tuesday, I hope he's able to play: http://www.fulhamfc.com/news/2017/september/28/team-news

    QPR are just a point behind us in the table, but they haven't won since early September having drawn with Barnsley, Burton, and Millwall, along with a loss to Middlesborough.

    This match will be aired on ESPN3! First free match of the season.

    QPR have a better home record than away, but we are not your typical away side. I think we'll be able to bring it to them and push for three points. I'd love to see a blowout (for the Whites of course)... too many close matches this season.

    I feel we're overdue for an offensive breakout. I'm hoping for a four or five goal night for the good guys. We've been generating chances out the ying yang, but, until Forest, have been very unlucky. Now that a few have gone in, I think we'll see some serious sniping. And hitting.

    Assuming I get ESPN3 to work and I'm not called away, I hope to get into the chatroom. Hope to "see" some of you there!

    Well crap, I missed Joe's post and was thinking I'd try to watch it online tomorrow. Oh well, I'm good missing every game if we get 3 pts every time.

    Nervy 9 minutes of stoppage time, but glad we saw one out for a change. Hope Ojo's OK, looked like a shoulder problem. I'll take the 3 points and not look back. Going forward, still seeing too much kamikaze defending and the inability to deal with extreme high pressure in the back. We're lucky our man Ream is pretty darn good with the ball. Still, lots of room for improvement. Still feel we're overdue for a big offensive breakout. But again, a big win in an away derby. I love beating these guys AND Ian Holloway, who dissed us last season.

    More highlights below from the QPR YouTube channel. Pretty much the same as above except that this one also includes Fredericks high-kick clearance off the line in injury time.


    Didn't have a chance to watch the full match since I was watching my favorite soccer team (my son's JV team) that had a game at the same time as Fulham, but based on the highlights Fredericks was my MOTM. He had a number of dangerous runs, the shot that lead to the OG, and two likely goal saving clearances.

    Ojo has dislocated his shoulder. I haven't seen any word yet on how long he might be out. We can certainly use the two week break to try and get some of our guys healthy.

    EDIT: Upon further review it was Kalas, not Fredericks who cleared that ball off the line. GJ credited the wrong defender.

    I think the Results went our way this morning as well. Hope they take the week off and don't lose the momentum. Big game when they return and opportunity to switch places with PNE.

    We likely won't see Ojo in the lineup again until 2018, he's expected to be out for about 3 months: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/fo...ham-winger-Sheyi-Ojo-dislocated-shoulder.html

    I agree. We went from 4 points out of the playoff zone to 3 and from 9 to 7 points off the top spot. The fact that we've been able to stay within striking distance despite not having our best XI available encourages me.
