    Well my friends, things are getting interesting at our club and no one can deny that every game is important.

    We are now away to Tottenham, a team with loads and loads of talent and just finding their form. Our saving grace? The fact that Spurs are very deflated from the match vs. Arse.

    I would like to see a line up much like the one at the end of the Wigan match. With one exception, Bouazza instead of Kuqi. Niemi, Omozusi (Baird if O is injured), Hughes, Boca, Konchesky, Murphy, Davies, Bouazza, Dempsey with Healy and Kamara up front.

    Here's what I'd like to see:

    --------- Niemi [get well soon, Kasey] --------

    Volz --- Hughes -- Boca -- PK

    ------------ Smertin ------------
    Davies ---------------- Boazza
    ---------- Dempsey -----------

    ---- Healy ---- Kamara ------

    If Smertin and Volz are still injured, use Baird and Davis.

    It would be nice if the bench could include Jimmy the Bull.

    Spurs are weak devensively on their right side, and Robinson is a nightmare. Lot's of stuff through the left to Boazza and PK, and a bit of pressure on their D.

    Get some Spurs!

    like the line up HatterDon, i believe that is probably our best line up. Boazza has some set of wheels, but her needs to turn it up field, and up the middle of the pitch. Im not sold on Kuqi, but i do like his effort.

    Don, as always you throw out the best XI that Fulham has to offer, but if Omozusi is healthy he warrants a start with Volzy coming on later.

    Fulham needs to approach this match with an attack mentality. Robinson is the obvious weak point in this side and Fulham need to pepper him with as many shots as possible, because he will definitely make an error.

    Loved the intent I saw in the Wigan match and if Fulham had a little more luck the match would of ended with Fulham earning 3 points. Winnable match for Fulham, but I would be happy with a point.

    I really have no idea about this match.

    Ramos has his squad playing well, and we're terrible on the road. But then they're still Spurs, and Fulham played great attacking football against Wigan. I normally would complain about the incessant Davis/Murphy pairing, but did anyone see Davis shoot last match? I almost crapped myself!

    I'll settle for a point, but who knows what'll happen.

    Davis did shoot and I think he got a corner out of it. I was completely surprised.
    I like Don's lineup. I wish they would Deuce the shot at the center of the midfield.
    Kamara better figure it out soon.

    Kamara does better with the short passing game, so there is hope there. I think Healy is a bit more of a question mark now that we're not playing long-ball.

    Doin my best to keep the faith in these trying times but I haven't decided if I'll be able to wake up and drag myself to the pub for tomorrow's match. A draw would be nice and a win would feel like a revolution. Hoping for the best!

    If Omozusi is healthy, it'll be very interesting to see how he does, because if I recall correctly Spurs had a lot of success attacking down their left flank in the first match this season.

    I'll be in the chat room listening to Gentleman Jim. 0700 is little extreme for Boxing Day, so I suppose there won't be a lot of West Coasters, but I hope to "see" some of you there.

    I'm waiting to watch the game on Setanta so I won't be in the chatroom. Apologies.

    I'm in the same boat as Lyle. Enjoy the match and much respect to all that get up for the match at the crack of dawn.

    The Spurs can score, but they also give up a lot of goals. Let's hope we come out an attack. I like the way Lewington was pulling the strings and trying to encourage the team from the bench. We should of beaten Wigan, but we showed some heart in coming back with the equalizer. Let's build on the new found "freedom". I'm looking for it to be 2-2.

    Injuries and suspensions for Spurs will make a large impact...

    But Keane and Berba will save their bacon.

    Everyone needs to look Fulham's match stats...they're mind boggling.

    8 shots
    5 corner kicks
    zero offsides
    17 fouls, 4 yellow cards, 1 red


    In relation to the past two months this result makes one not only embarrassed, but raises the question of why one even bothers being a fan.

    Unless things turn around quickly, Fulham is now officially the Charlton of last season.

    It's getting ugly. I was all about taking our time in selecting the new manager and getting the right person, but we need to get someone in there that can fix this mess during the January window. We also need to quit getting all of these championship players and get guys who can cut it at this level. I'm sick of the thought of relegation.
