But our win, Wolves aside have all been 1-0. It's telling that Fulham have scored more goals than us, yet have four points less.

They "look good" though.
Fulham and West Brom are playing like Norwich did last season.

They are creating chances but aren't keeping goals out meaning they have to score two to win a game.

Whereas we often only need one goal to win a match. That's the big difference.

Re: Anyone watching the footy(20/01)?

Fulham have won just two games in eighteen matches. Very much like Brighton in that they seem to end up drawing plenty.

And like Brighton, failed to beat Sheff United.

Their next two are Brighton and West Brom.
