    Manchester City will come to the Cottage this Saturday in a huge match. City is coming off a nice win over Liverpool last weekend while we got bounced by Bolton 3-1 at the Reebok.

    What kind of a formation do you want to see used? Who do you want to see in the starting XI? Does McBride deserve another start in a 4-4-2 formation? I think he does.

    Mcbride definitly deserves another start and 4-4-2 is definitly the way to go....nuff said!

    Cheers to that MW2! After Jensen's early send off, I think it would be wrong for Coleman to pull the plug on this formation as I do not think we were able to see the full benefits of the 4-4-2 with only 10 men on the pitch.

    I agree that the Bolton match is a poor basis to judge the 4-4-2. I would like to see B-Mc up front with Cole again.

    How long will Claus be out? I read that the club withdrew the appeal of his red.

    Claus Jensen got a one match ban for the red card...he will miss the Man City match.

    I think we have to go 4-4-2 again and look something like this here:

    VDS
    Volz Goma Knight Roseinor
    Steed Clarky Leggs Boa
    Cole Bridey (maybe have John come in late)

    Really, I'd like to see Boca back in the lineup, but if Cookie insists on playing him out of position on the wing, then we are better off with Roseinor.

    Also, I'll be back in SW6 for Everton at the end of this month. Couldn't get tix in the Hammy (sadly) so I'll be in the Putney End. Will I be the American Delegation that weekend or will others be over?

    Also- I'm travelling down with a Everton supporter. What's a good away pub I can send him to before the match?

    As far as I know, you are the only one that will be over there for that match. However, if I hear anything different, I will let you know.

    Away pubs I am not too up on. Perhaps Mike or one of the locals can help you out with that. Tell you friend we are gonna stuff his Toffees!

    Cheers!

    1-1 is the final.

    Boa Morte secures the point for us and two results went our way today as well. Southampton lost to Villa after having a 2-0 lead and Norwich and Palace drew 3-3.

    On to Middlesboro for Tuesday...now if we can grab atleast another point from that, I would be a happy FFC supporter.

    RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Fulham vs Manchester City - Pre,

    What a swing of events for Fulham this morning. At about 10:15AM we were losing 1-0 and Southampton was winning 2-0 over Aston Villa. In less than 25 minutes, we score an equaliser and Villa scores three unanswered to take all three points from Southampton on the South Coast of England!!

    We were resliient today and it paid off with Boa's equaliser. The lads showed a lot of heart in the second half and it was great to get the point today. We are now seven points clear of the relegation zone with six matches to play.

    Chelsea match

    Sounds good. Hey, I gotta be at the Green Market on Saturday, so why not get out early? I think I saw on their website that Baker St. was showing the match. Just wake me when we score. . z z z z z z z
