    Fulham will play host to Manchester City on Saturday at the Cottage. Man City is in 4th place and having a strong season. Andy Cole and Darius Vassell have proven to be a good strike force for the Citizens.

    What are your thoughts on this game? Do we have a chance? Lineup for Fulham?

    I think...

    Of course we have a chance, we've managed to stay in every game this year. I think we need to figured on a good line up and a good counter attack because we know those two can put it together.

    My line up...

    Warner
    Volz, Goma, Boca, Jensen
    Rosenior
    Papa, Jensen, Boa
    Steed
    John


    I might have been playing FIFA 06 too much, if so... is what will really happen.

    Warner
    Volz, Goma, Boca, Jensen
    steed, papa, jensen, boa
    radz
    john

    From what I have read, Papa is definitely out on Saturday. In addition, Boa Morte, Claus Jensen and Malbranque are all doubts with injuries. If this is the case, we are going to struggle to find enough midfielders to play let alone win.

    I just read this after I posted... good lord help us...

    Rarely do invoke the powers of Jesus, partly cuz I'm a crazy liberal, but i think we might need his help here.

    You never know, this may be inspirational....

    ... or not.

    Revised:

    Warner
    Volz, Goma, Boca, Jensen
    Rosenior
    Zesh, Elrich, Pembridge, Radz
    john

    I think Jesus should be subbed in for Goma in the 4th minute...

    I think Pembridge is still out too. Perhaps Jesus will be playing in midfield instead of defense.

    What....no Jesus Saves comments?!

    Anyways, is HH injured also? I haven't heard too much of him lately and thought I missed something that had been posted previously.

    No way should Jesus be a defender. The dude refuses to tackle.

    Legwinski played for the reserves this week, so he may be available. If Boa, Steed, Claus, and Diop are all out, we are screwed. I bet at least one of them makes the starting lineup.

    What happened to all that extra fitness work in the pre-season? The kickboxing, rugby, and so on. Weren't we supposed to get stronger while everyone else faded?

    Wouldn't this be the crazy kind of match for us to win!

    I'm intrigued by the idea of Liam playing in front of the back four . . .

    If all the suspected injuries hold true let's go with:

    Warner
    Voltz,Goma, Boca, Jensen
    Rosenior
    Elrich,Rehman,Radz
    John,McBride

    Why not? :)

    Helguson is healthy and fit for Saturday. He is available for selection.

    If Jesus saves then he'd play Goalie. :twisted:

    From Coleman's comments on the offical site, the injury news looks much better:

    Bouba came off on Tuesday because of his hamstring an hour into the training session and we immediately sent him to hospital for a scan. Fortunately he is okay and trained a bit with us today (Thurday). He will train tomorrow and should be okay for Saturday.

    Claus Jensen should be back in training tomorrow (Friday) and with a bit of work should be available for Saturday.

    Steed Malbranque took a knock to his ankle during training on Tuesday but he trained today (Thursday) and hopefully he'll be okay for Saturday.
