    Don't know if this is valid or not, but physioroom.com has Hughes as out for tomorrow's match. Picked up some calf injuiry or something this week. Would be interesting to see if that's true and who Roy would start at the other CB position.

    Kallio perhpas? Might be the right guy to help out on Adebayor and Bendtner cause they are big forwards and I believe a little quicker than Brede, he could use some help I am sure. I think we have a hot to get a point out of this match if what I saw from them last week is sort of where they are as a team right now. Can't wait. :)

    don't worry. We've got plenty of backup at striker ... well, we did until Thursday.

    If Hangeland wasn't such a rock in the back I'd say we have our target man up front!! 1-0!
    We look a bit weak back left... Quick observation 20 mins in!

    at the half: I'm liking what I see from Murphy and Seol. I'm looking for Bullard to make a short accurate forward pass. Usually he's passing back or laterally or kicking something upfield to nobody.

    We're unsettling Arsenal and making them play to our tune. I think I'm liking what I'm seeing for this season.

    Sorry not to be in the chatroom; I'm without my laptop and it's either TV or computer in the near term.

    What a result.

    Murphy is the MOM for sure. Followed closely by Brede, Pantsil, and Seol [until he died at about 60 minutes]. It's nice to beat a top four team. For those new to the site, last year was the only year in the past 4 where we didn't do that at least once.

    YES!!!!!!!

    As sweet as this win is, I don't know if I can take all this late-match anxiety week after week. At this rate, I'll have a heart attack by the first week of October.

    Just once, I'd like to see us finish one of those breakaways to put a game away.

    COYW!!!

    I thought the first half was just about as good as we could have played against them. I thought we didn't have enough possession in the 2nd (especially toward the end). Over all I think we deserved the win.

    Hmmm . . . for some strange reason, I feel like having a Landycake.

    I am a fan of Pantstil. Seol has also looked pretty good up top.

    Anyone else stop breathing when Baird was inserted at LB towards the end?

    Great win today, Havent seen a Fulham side like that in years, shame Arsenal didnt turn up to play today but helped us with a great win, havent seen some of those players play before but was very impressed with what I saw.

    Midfield controlled the whole game and we managed to keep hold of the ball for longer than I have ever seen, Hodgson must be getting through to he's players at long last

    WELL DONE Boys

    pantsil has a lot of game to him... i wasn't as hard up on him last week as everyone else, but thought he was alright.

    today i thought he was excellent... an upgrade over stalteri. very active, attack minded and, personally... i love it when announcers go on about players making a 'marauding' run. i think i'll hear that in relation to pantsil a lot.

    also, zamora... much improved over last week. a mcbride-esque effort.

    i had to go to the bathroom about 10 minutes into the second half, but tried to hold it... i think i would've pissed myself, regardless, over the last 5 minutes.

    Couldn't agree more Don! Lets not forget Schwarzer. I do like the way he commands his area.

    yes... and he was surprisingly solid. my first thought was "what are you thinking, roy?"

    but he came through.

    Ditto for Murphy for MOM. He was a force in the midfield today. Pantsil is a stud too. He and Aussie Mark are the two best buys so far.

    Maybe it helped that Fabregas was out, but we ran the midfield ALL GAME. Until Woy pulled everyone back in the last couple of minutes or so, we stuffed their midfield creativity all game long -- no mean feat.

    Really, I didn't notice a weak link all across the board, except Andranik when he came on and that might have just been issues with getting into the flow of the game. Even Baird did what little he had to do well. And boy, was I glad that Arsenal didn't go down the left once that I can remember when he was on. His arrival caused much derision in the classroom, and Don, we were all thinking of you then :banana:.
