    It feels like just yesterday that we went to Madejski Stadium and saw our promotion hopes dashed by that unfortunate handball penalty. I really want to obliterate Reading, but I settle for a win of any sort.

    Sadly there won't be much opportunity exact justice on the list of names I've been muttering since May: stark_low.png

    Kermorgant is out. Obita might be out. Williams has left for Huddersfield. So there will be very few chances for specific revenge. Reading also said goodbye to Al-Habsi who stood on his head in goal to get them to the playoff final. With all these changes Reading will be a far different team than the one we faced before. Reading couldn't even have a full bench of subs when they lost their opener to QPR 2-0.

    Fulham may see Kevin McDonald back in the lineup but Bettinelli is still out.

    Make a statement Fulham! COYW!!

    Not gonna complain about a point from a match where we basically played the entire game a man down. Piazon has two goals in two games, makes good things happen, appears to have a great attitude and seems to genuinely love the club. Why isn't he starting?

    89 minutes and 30 seconds w/10 men and a tying goal in the 82nd? Not too shabby

    Well that was a statement of sorts, just not the one I was looking for! It was good to see that this is still the team that we saw last year with the never-say-die attitude as opposed to one that would shuffle off to a 3-0 loss after an early red card.

    Alright, enough draws. Time to get a win.

    Blatant (or professional if you like) foul by Kalas. Not a immediate goal scoring opportunity in my opinion though.

    Piazon did the equalizing all by himself and Button certainly put in a shift to keep the match close.

    Ream was quoted as saying the atmosphere in the locker room afterwards was great. It was amazing to see 4 or 5 Fulham players fall to the ground in exhaustion immediately after the final whistle. No bullshit, they pushed themselves to the limit and got their reward. Incredibly difficult call from the referee, unexpected, first minute, very tough.

    Cant wait to play Reading at home! We're going to absolutely smash them!
