    Fulham travel to Turf Moor on Saturday. The match will be aired at 7pm on FSC.

    For those keeping count, Fulham haven't won there since 1951. That's back when Truman was President, A Street Car Named Desire premiered, and Don (finally) came of age.

    Burnley also have the 4th best home record, tied with Soonderlaand but behind Chelsea, ManU, and the Arse. That is some esteemed company.

    I'm interested to see how injuries pan out but a point there would be ideal.

    1-1.

    The rest of December is going to be a doozie.

    Burnley on 12/12: Go for 3 points away, but hope for at least 1.

    Basel on 12/16: MUST get a win.

    Manchester United on 12/19: Again, go for win at home, but settle for draw.

    Tottenham on 12/26: Almost MUST get a win at home.

    Chelsea on 12/28: Settle for a draw away, but prepare for a loss.

    1/1: Happy Feckin' New Year!!! Yeah, Swindon Town, Stoke, Portsmouth, and Blackburn up next before Tottenham again, but this time at the home of the yids, will seem like a walk in the Park, if we can still walk.

    With three other matches being talked about [one last week, one in 12 days, and one in June], I was wondering where the interest was in THIS Saturday's match v. Burnley.

    So, BUMP

    Burnley is looking to survive by making their home ground a fortress and scraping a few points away (only 1 of their 17 points has been earned away). So far they are 5-1-1 at home including a victory over ManU, only Wigan has won up there. Obviously they don't play like a team w/a -14 GD at Turf Moor, so we'll have to match their energy for the full 90.

    Plunder a late goal, grab a draw, then hop the first train to Clarksville and be it as if Fulham were never there...

    ESPN is showing Stoke and Wigan? :? I thought they were the official home of Burnley.

    I was thinking v Burnley would be a guaranteed showing on ESPN2 in HD as well. Instead we get tape delay. No love for the Fulham stateside.

    Burnley are 5-1-1 at home, 11 GF/6 GA. Fulham are 1-3-3 on the road, 7 GF/10 GA. All signs point to a Fulham loss, so I'll go with a 1-1 draw. Reverse Fulhamish. COYW!!

    well, crap Matt; no need to respond to my email about making it 9pts of 9 at the Lion and Rose.

    I'll be in the chatroom Saturday morning.

    This will be tough, maybe too tough, but that Burnley 1-2 FULHAM line looks good enough for me.

    Uh, there was a game today. Not sure if everybody forgot or what...



    Anyways, we shouldve won and we shouldn't of settled for a point. We were clearly the better team and we seemed to give up after 80 minutes.

    Murphy not getting on the pitch is surprising. If he's not fit, then why waste a bench spot?


    Duff was amazing and so was Zamora. Zamora is not the diet Heskey, he is playing better than Heskey ever played. He's scoring goals and providing a fight for whoever he plays against. I hope he can keep it up.


    Decent result that shouldve been more. Onto Basel!

    Played well enough for the three points, but didn't get it.

    An expected point in my book. and three points would've been gravy. Too many sloppy giveaways and I agree that Murphy would've been a welcome addition. Due to his omission this match, I hope that Murphy is going to feature prominently in Basel, as I believe he can lead Fulham through.

    FFC24, I agree that Zamora is a beast of late, but BZ needs to keep up this pace for a good spell before I'd rate him above Heskey; nevertheless, I'd say they're equals right now. So, did BZ ever play for T & T and can he still play for England?

    I don't think he did, but I think the FIFA rule is if you switch after you turn 21, with this new rule change like Zamora did, you can't switch back, even if you don't play for the new country.

    But I could be totally wrong as I know like .000000001 percent of FIFA rules. I just remember hearing this during all the Jones/Castillo talk with the US.

    Nev, I was overreacting. I'm not used to seeing Zamora play this well so I get a bit carried away. Really, he still has a long way to go before I'm completely sold.


    I'd like somebody to answer why Riise doesn't play in the league? He's one of our best players in Europe so this doesn't really make any sense.


    Oh and was EJ injured? Because it was Elm, not EJ, who was on the bench.
