    Can't start this one early enough. We can hate on Chelsea all we want, but these guys (along with Brentford) are our true derby rivals. While I'd like to see the lads advance in the LC, I'd prefer to win this one instead if I had to choose. A win would jump us above the HaHa's in the table and right in touch with the group challanging for spots 6 thru 10.

    I think QPR are the more talented team, but we've been playing better at home, so I think we have a chance. The attack has got to start coming a lot quicker though. And, as always, set pc defense needs to improve, or minimize the number of opportunities.

    Had to do a doublecheck Mateo, but you're right on the League Cup thread that this is actually a Friday match.

    48 hours until the biggest match of the season, the atmosphere at CC is going to be crackling. Got a feeling the lads are going to put in a performance we all will be happy with.

    I don't know if Kit can change fans' opinions of him, but a win over QPR would help to that end.

    Looks like Jazz is out for this one, which is a shame because I think he's been fairly solid for us. Given that news, here's what I would go with:

    I'd like to see Ream on the left with Burn brought in. I think this back 4 gives us a little more solidity, especially vs set pieces.

    Glad that Fredericks is available again. Not sure I'm ready for a Voser sighting.

    Team news:
    “Luke Garbutt’s back in full training with us, as are Scott Parker and George Williams,” Symons revealed. “They’ll all get game time on Monday night for the Under-21s up at Derby, and pretty soon they’ll be back in contention for selection for First Team games.”

    According to the ofal 'Team News' he is. I'm not even sure who we would play if he isn't fit. I assume Grimmer is still out.

    Got some appointments that'll keep me from watching "live" and contributing to the chatroom, but I hope to get a "View" out before midnight at least. COYW

    Fulham on TV! I've alerted all 3 members of our local group to meet up at Finns for the appointed hour. Is this the turning point? 3 home points from QPR and then on and on up the table?!

    COME ON YOU WHITES!

    What a win! Let's take a look at the table. Unfortunately, I can only fit the top half in here. Fortunately, that's all we need right now! COYW! Three more on Tuesday!

    As sacffc said in the chat, how great to see us play that way in a rare tv match. If HD gets to a 'View' the hardest part could be choosing a MoM. One of the best things about this division is that it's wildly unpredictable. Don't want to go overboard after thrashing our neighbors 4-0 since it's only 3 points, but that team out there today is capable of pushing up into the Top 10.

    Ladies and Gents, that was a brilliant beat-down by our Whites. And Tim, I agree, it was damn fun to watch the squad completely pick apart QPR.

    And Pringle's goal is #7 on Sportscenter's top 10. Who knew the people who decide such things bother watching the Championship?
