    Looks like Bein will have the Huddersfield match online at Bein Sports Connect and fubo tv? Anybody have experience with this streaming service? I'm hoping my local pub can put it on one of the computers if they have a password for the match.

    Even still, people are slaggin off Ream and second guessing Slava, Sometimes I still feel like we are in that scene in Gladiator "Are you not entertained!?!?!" COYW!

    Some people...OK, a lot of people, you just can't ever please. How short their memories are. This time last year we were in 17th place on our way down to 20th and getting walloped 5-nil at the Amex. Jamie O'Hara, Richard Stearman and Fernando Amorebieta were still on the pitch for us. Today we are fighting for the playoffs with a darn good chance of making it. As for Huddersfield, they'll be highly motivated to reverse the 5-nil whacking we laid on them at the Cottage back in October. Was it a fluke? Maybe, maybe not, but I'm sure they remember it well. Chris Martin had a big game that afternoon, so the Terriers should be further emboldened by his absence. Of our three remaining fixtures, this one could prove the most troublesome. But our lads are on one of the best runs of form we've seen from a Fulham side in a long, long time. I just can't see us laying another egg on the run in to May 7th. If the October result was due to favorable matchups for us, that dynamic hasn't changed. And don't forget our stellar road record. The way we're playing, there's every reason to believe that we could win out. I say, why not?

    Looking back at the October result, FFC sent them on a 4 game losing streak after that. I'm guessing they come out firing Saturday. I'll still say 3 more for the good guys.

    I don't think we've put together 4 wins in a row in league play since October of 2000. Although we've been playing great, I don't think we break that streak this week. I'm hoping for a point. On the plus side I think either Leeds or Wednesday will also get a point.

    I read that and thought that couldn't be right, but it is true. That lineup seems like ages ago. There are only three returning starters from that match: Ream, Fredericks, and Bettinelli (Cairney was out). Ream was playing left FB and Bettinelli has only just returned now as starter, so this really is an entirely different team.

    Oh. And THIS guy, too. Wonder if he has any regrets. But as "M" would say, that would be unprofessional...something he seems to know a lot about.

    It's probably the hyper superstitious baseball fan in me, but I'm feeling a bit squeaky bummed about the week long interim between fixtures. We're in the best run of form we've had in a long time, and at crunch time no less. When you're playing well, you want to play often. Fingers crossed we don't lose our mojo this week. I really don't think we will, but there's always that little devil sitting on your shoulder whispering doubts.

    Totally agree, there isn't one place in our line up that is less capable than when we played them 6 months ago. Plus our away form has got to be very worrying to other teams, especially when it comes to a two legged playoff. Away from home only Brighton and Newcastle are better this season and I think we're have a lot of home fans left to disappoint this season :)

    After reviewing the October highlights, a couple of things stand out. The first is they were very, very poor defensively. Like, as bad as we've been the last few seasons until this year. We even scored off a set piece AND a penalty, both rarities this season. We shouldn't expect them to be that bad defensively at home this go around. Secondly, Chris Martin had a brace, and will not be on the pitch to torment them for the rematch. Still, there are more reasons to be optimistic than not that we can sweep them. The issue then becomes, can we outscore them in a home and away tie, if it happens? First things first...let's qualify for the opportunity.

    If offered a point I wouldn't take it given who Leeds & Wednesday are playing, but a point up there would be a good result.

    We're the league leaders in goal scoring!
    24 more than Huddersfield
    22 more than Leeds and Wednesday

    Let me see ... last road match was against a side that spanked a club above us 7-1. We lost a man at halftime and still played them off the pitch.

    I'm very optimistic for a W here. If we don't get it, I'm not filled with woe. I think 6 of our last 9 will be enough, and I believe we can do that.

    OK, on my TWC/Spectrum TV guide, it shows the PSG vs. Montpelier live at 10:55 a.m., preceded by This Is Paris and El Clasico: The Movie. Our match is tape delayed at 1:00 p.m., HOWEVER, if you can get something called beinsports 3, you MIGHT get to see our lads live... Good night and good luck.

    I believe that is online only. If you get BeIn you should be able to log on for that channel.

    What an incredible turn of events! We now have more scenarios that put us into the playoffs than those that keep us out. Even if we don't manage to win one of the next two, Leeds still has to win both of their remaining - the next one against Norwich who are coming off of wins vs. Preston and Brighton. Of course I'd rather keep the winning streak going right into the playoffs.

    Character. Something that had been sorely lacking (along with talent) until this Serbian cat showed up. Now? Concede an early penalty on the road? No sweat. Respond with 4 unanswered. Go down a man on the road after going up 1-nil? Win 3-1. Starting on loan striker pouts, then gets a red card? Rip off 3 wins without him. Lose 36 league goal scorers from previous season? Screw it. Replace them with 5 guys who can score in double digits. To be sure, Town missed some very good chances today. But so did we, and we still got FOUR. And Marcus guessed correctly AGAIN on their penalty. If it hadn't been perfect, he would have saved it. On a day when Sess, Ayite, Aluko and Fredericks weren't at their best, Malone, Cairney and Johansen were. And the defenders and Betts had a quiet, solid game in the back. The SW6 fan base has been quieter about our man Ream of late. It's just hard to imagine where we'd be without Johansen, though. When he's healthy and playing well, we've been our best. What a run. Beastie Boys wisdom: keep it goin' keep it goin' keep it goin' FULL STEAM!

    I've been watching Fulham since Van der Saar was our keeper and Boa Morte was running the left wing. I'm here to tell you that I've never seen a Fulham side playing such luscious football was we're all enjoying now. We are -- by far -- the best team in the league.

    I've been watching Fulham since Stekelenberg was our keeper and Berbatov grumpily kicked dirt clods in the opposing half waiting for service. I'm here to tell you that I've never seen a Fulham side playing such luscious football as we're all enjoying now. ;)
