    Fulham hosts Burnley for the 4th Round of the FA Cup. The match starts at 9:30am EST, I'm not sure where it will be available on TV, Fox Sports? Burnley is coming off of a huge win at Liverpool that has moved them 7 points ahead of Fulham and even with Newcastle. Fulham's make-up game with Burnley has yet to be scheduled. That eventual match will be huge, this one not so much. Parker is likely to rotate out most of the regular starters to make sure the squad is ready for the far more important match with Brighton on Wednesday. I'd like to see some experimenting with options up front given Fulham's desperate need for goals. Timmy Abraham maybe? He's back from Plymouth and has hardly played at all this season.

    Unsurprisingly, Parker fields a bench squad for the match today.

    Looks to be sloppy and cold. No injuries please.

    Apparently Fulham v Burnley isn't good enough for ESPN to create highlights for, so we are stuck with these that focus mostly on the goals.


    Not a great day for Fulham, but I was almost as bothered by the condition of the pitch as I was by the lack of scoring. That's the worst I've ever seen at Craven Cottage.

    Disappointing. It was like watching the Fulham from the start of the season. Hector, Ream, Mitro, and Kamara blew their chance to push for more playing time. Onomah, too, but he has a better excuse.

    The pitch is as bad as we we're today. Ream and Hector were the worst of the bunch. Which says something!

    The behind-the-scenes video of prepping the pitch for Sunday's match is pretty impressive and it explains why things were as crappy as they were:


    There is a slightly longer version of this video on Facebook that has a better shot of how things started: snowy_cottage.jpg
