    Three matches.
    That’s all that’s left in this most wretched of seasons.
    But...Cardiff City are three points from safety, and we have a chance to heap some of the misery we’ve suffered this season upon them. And we suddenly appear capable of doing exactly that. Two straight wins and clean sheets, and first road win can do wonders for a team’s psyche. And that Neil Warnock, what a great guy! said no one...ever.
    Haven’t heard about team news and who’s fit or ruled out, but it doesn’t really matter, does it? I like our chances, not only Saturday, but in all three of these finales. Wolves might prove difficult, but, again, when you win your first one away, you believe you can do it again. And Newcastle certainly aren’t world beaters this season, and may finally have done enough to run off Rafa Benitez at season’s end. But first things first. Let’s go Bluebird hunting!

    and we're going to be LIVE on NBCSN

    that doesn't suck. I have little to root for this remaining season, but relegative Colin would be a nice little thang

    I do know we will be without Schurrle, who is going to be a dad, and TFM, who tore a knee ligament in our win versus Everton (as a former ACL-tearer, knew it was that when I saw the replay) two weeks ago and went back to United.

    Other than that, can we put together a ... winning streak?

    I’m hoping new dad Tom Cairney returns this week.

    Crazy, crazy flurry by Cardiff at the end. Rico man of the match. Did we just win 3 in a row?

    Not only the double threes, but we did it during perhaps the worst match Mitro has had all season! Nice one guys!

    I'm on to something and it may be big !!!

    I didn't feel like getting up at 7 to watch the Everton game on the computer, and since I didn't want to hide from scores all day, I decided to go ahead and look up the final score. Lo and behold, they won! I haven't watched Bournemouth yet, and I didn't watch today because both my NBC Sports Gold email and the local paper neglected to list that it'd be on a TV today.

    So now they have a 3-game winning streak. I'm willing to skip the remaining games in order to help the team win. This could be a secret weapon in the future! I'll have to see how the rest of the season goes.

    We needed you to figure this out back in January! :D

    You could make a strong argument that we should have lost this one, but I don't care - it was great to see Warnock going ballistic on the sideline. Neil please join the Fulham fans in singing "We're on our way! We're on our way! To the Championship, we're on our way!"

    It seems that Odoi is okay after taking that horrific kick to the face. He was seen with friends after the match but Parker wasn't sure if he'd clear concussion protocols to play either of the remaining matches.

    I have to wonder if that match may have secured Parker's position for next season. He already has gotten just has many wins as Ranieri, secured the first away win of the season, has more clean sheets than the previous 28 matches before him, and regardless of what happens for the rest of the season he will have the best Points Per Match of any Fulham Manager this season. Jokanovic had 0.42 PPM, Ranieri 0.75 PPM, while Parker currently has 1.13 PPM and can do no worse than 0.9 PPM. Granted, those are still not stellar numbers (over Parker's tenure Fulham still has the fifth worst record in the PL) but he got these results out of a team that had absolutely nothing left to play for and one that had set records for defensive ineptitude under the prior managers.

    not to mention that his first few matches were ones where no points could be logically expected
