    Boro are seventh. We are 14th. Patrick Bamford (remember him?) scored twice in a midweek league cup win at Villa, but both sides fielded 10 different players from the their previous league outing, so not much to learn from that. We just need to win. Whatever that looks like.

    2-4-2 record keeps you runnin' (it keeps you runnin'...) but I agree with jump, some wins need to start falling into the column sooner than later - Fulham need to get a few on the bounce and things change to the good (7 from the top and 5 from playoffs - manageable at this point).

    Oh, look. You can watch the opponent's gaffer'spre-match presser on their facebook page LIVE and on replay for FREE! How quaint...

    As far as I know it was only available through the traditional channels. However, the Fulham website was so slow that it was unusable today. I was never able to get audio of the match. I assume video had similar issues, but if they use a third party for streaming they might not have had the same issues.

    What is it with Fulham and late goals? What happens differently in the last quarter of a match? I'd like the team to figure that out and fix it!

    28 days since our last Tom Cairney sighting.

    We're also conceding too many quality scoring chances. Too loose in the final third, not closing people down early or quickly enough. Sessegnon really isn't a very good defender and Fredericks got nutmegged in the penalty area. Need to move Sess up, whatever that looks like. Still need to get Johansen going. Thought he might after a slight breakthrough at Burton Albion, but he was MIA Saturday. Really need Cairney and Piazon back, but until then, somebody, ANYBODY, needs to step up and get something going offensively. We're not looking like a first or second place finisher right now. If that's going to change this season, somebody on the pitch needs to start leading until we get some guys back. Pretty soft goal to concede, at any time, but especially that late. Corner was shiite, then we failed multiple times to clear. Gotta do better.

    Kamara also, once again, didn't pass to totally open players in the box and instead chose to take a difficult shot. When he's played he's be threatening in the box and gotten the attention of defenders, but he hasn't gotten balls to open men. Hopefully since he has his first goal (a very nice header) he'll be in a more sharing mood.

    Or, he could be intoxicated with the euphoria of scoring his first goal and turn into a ball hog and fire any and everything at goal with the ball at his feet in the attacking half.
