    The team needs to quickly turn around from Friday's joyous victory over QPR to host Wolverhampton on Tuesday. This is a winnable match for us, especially if we play like we did against QPR. The Wolves have struggled a bit so far this year managing only a draw against a 9-man Preston team on Saturday.

    I'd like to see the same lineup we had against QPR since everything was clicking. Even if Richards is healthy, I think Fredericks earned a shot at the starting XI. I'm also not sure how much longer we have Husband. His one month loan started on August 28, but there has been talk of extending it.

    Teams that compete for playoff spots string together 3 points when in form and don't fall victim to a letdown after a big win. Very curious about how we'll react, but feeling optimistic the lads will get er' done.

    How good is the situation for Middlesborough at LB to loan him away in the first place?

    Fredericks being subbed out yesterday could mean either that his "knock" hadn't allowed him to be able to play 90 minuteson Friday, or it could mean that he was being pulled early so as to start on Tuesday. We'll have to see.

    As for Husband, I can't see 'boro extending the loan. If they do, it's because they don't consider us a rival for promotion.

    No TV that I could find, so I plan to be in the chatroom. Three points should be a must.

    Boro must not see us as a threat:

    I'm glad this game is at the Cottage. I would be more concerned about a let-down if this game was at Molineux. Attendance for this game will be interesting since it's a rescheduled Tuesday night game. I would be surprised if Wolves bring many fans.

    I think Fredericks vs. Richards is the only real selection decision Kit needs to make, but I would be very surprised if Fredericks doesn't start. I thought he was immense against QPR both offensively and defensively. He used his pace to put out fires when QPR looked dangerous (really only in the first half), and then exploded down the wing on the overlap. He's our RB until dethroned.

    FYI, my antivirus program threw a red flag on that site. It blocked something, but didn't say what. Just wanted to give everyone a heads-up.

    Remember a couple years ago when MaF was making some curious decisions and HD correctly forecasted the eventual sale of the club? Well when Wolves sold Stearman to Fulham it was a precursor to today's announcement that Wolverhampton owner Steve Morgan has put Wolves up for sale.

    When recounting who should be in the starting XI I forgot to mention last week's 12th man - the Jacksonville Jaguar cheerleaders! They were unfortunately overlooked in MotM voting that they should have won. Is it any coincidence that we have our best home game in ages when they are there?! If we don't score in the first two minutes on Tuesday it will be proof that we need to have cheerleaders on a permanent basis. Like my Ma always said "Correlation is causation!"

    I'm not sure that kit is up to standard. Perhaps I should form a committee to take a closer look and report back?

    OMG! The club didn't even mention the cheerleaders in a post about the 12th Man!

    As for Husband, I haven't seen anything official, but he's still listed as a player on the website. I guess we'll find out in about 45 minutes if he is still on loan.

    Husband's loan has been extended, confirmed by the Official FFC twitter account.

    The guide is showing an English Championship League match on BeIn today. Doesn't say what teams, but maybe?

    The lineup:
    Lonergan
    Fredericks, Stearman, Ream, Husband
    Cairney, Tunnicliffe, O'Hara, Pringle
    McCormack, Dembele

    Subs: Lewis, Voser, Burn, Mattila, Kavanagh, Christensen, Woodrow

    Glad to see Fredericks and Husband. I'm surprised Richards isn't even on the bench.

    It seems the last couple of seasons that anytime Fulham looks like they might get on a little roll an untimely (I know there isn't such a thing as a timely one) red card appears. Extremely frustrating this issue keeps rearing its' ugly head.

    So I have an afternoon of meetings and I finally get a chance to see what is happening in the 80th minute and we are down 2-0 with a red card in the first half?! What happened? Where were those guys who played so well on Friday?

    solid, lock-down, all the doo-dah day red card. I'd have sent off HatterMom if she'd two-footed a tackle like that.
