    Before we get into the review of Fulham's February, let's take a moment to thank February's site sponsor: @jumpkutz !

    Where Fulham Started February:
    31 Points
    7th Place

    February Record: 2W 0L 2D
    4 GF, 1 GA
    Points Per Match: 2 (1.6 for the season)

    Where Fulham Ended February:
    39 Points
    6th Place

    Any time a team can go a month and only give up one goal in the league, it was probably a pretty good month. Fulham got through February without losing a single match thanks in large part to the excellent play of the defense. I mentioned this before, but it is worth repeating - in the 10 matches since the World Cup, Fulham has given up just 0.5 goals per match compared to 1.7 in the 15 prior matches. The improved performance by the defense allowed Fulham to still earn points in the three matches without Mitrovic compared to zero points from the three matches without Mitrovic prior to the World Cup.

    February 2023 will also be remembered as the time that Manor Solomon finally got to show what he can do. Of the 9 goals scored in all competitions in February, Solomon accounted for 4 of them. It is hard to pick a favorite, but I think I have to go with the one against Brighton since it was the match winner.

    Fulham also continued their best FA Cup run in years with wins over Sunderland and Leeds.

    Most importantly, Fulham got to the magic number of 38 points - the number typically needed to avoid relegation. In Fulham's last three outings in the Premier League they fell short of this goal by 6, 12, and 10 points. 38 points had been the goal Fulham desperately desired, but failed to reach. Here it is, early March, with 13 matches remaining and Fulham has already achieved safety. It is truly remarkable that we can watch the last third of the season play out and not worry one iota about relegation.
