Re: Match Day Thread: Fulham vs Burnley

Perfectly executed third: deep cross - Matej's nicely cushioned header to Jay in the danger area, superbly controlled by Jay, great anticipation by Longy: that's the style.

Re: Match Day Thread: Fulham vs Burnley

Vyds seldom gets caught offside as he's can sit a little deeper on the defender's shoulder, but Jay has a great header on him, superb finish.

Let's see Wood score from there on his weaker foot... you'll be in for a long wait.

Positives:

Mostly solid at the back but that's a poor goal to give away; Robbie if you're going to track back to defend then great, but don't just stand there trying to look useful.

Re: Is tonight the night?

City conceded 28% possession to Leicester the other day, who promptly scored five. Usually when we play City we have around 28% of the possession too, so I really fancy us to score a few tonight.

Unfortunately I'm also expecting them to score a few more than we do.
