    Before we get into looking back at Fulham over the past month, let's take a moment to thank November's site sponsor @nevzter !

    On paper November 2022 looks like a real stinker for Fulham. Zero points. Twice as many goals conceded as scored. But context is everything. There were only two matches and those were away at Manchester City and home to Manchester United. In both matches Fulham had a draw until late goals in added time. Fulham was also without Mitrovic in both matches. Fulham won't get any points for making a good showing against top teams, but the strong performances should offer some encouragement even if the results disappoint.

    Fulham won't play again until Boxing Day that is still weeks away, and then there are only two matches before 2023 rolls over on the calendar. Most of the remaining matches for the first half of the season will be against teams that are all currently below Fulham in the table with only the rescheduled match against Chelsea being against a higher team.

    The World Cup kicked off with a strong Fulham presence. There were a total of six Whites playing for their national teams - Ream, Robinson, Mitrovic, Palhinha, Wilson, and James (in 2018 the only Fulham player in the World Cup was Mitrovic). Of the six Ream, Robinson, and Palhinha have made it to the knockout round while Mitrovic's Serbia will need to win against Switzerland on Friday to make the knockout round (and if Cameroon sneaks in a win against Brazil then Serbia will need to also score two more goals than they do). I think Fulham should be particularly proud of the performances Ream and Robinson put in as the US prevented any goals from open play and the one penalty conceded was not their fault.

    Meanwhile back in England, Fulham drew Hull City in their opening round of the FA Cup. Fulham will visit Hull the first full weekend of January. Hull currently sit in 20th place in the Championship.

    The rest of the Fulham squad is currently training in Portugal. The good news is that this also includes Manor Solomon who is recovering from knee surgery. He expects he'll be a full participant in practices soon after they return to London.
