Now 2 nil up. If that's a penalty I will eat hay with a donkey. The Fulham player simply ran into the leg ofvthe Leicester player. Absolute crap.

The gods are against us at the moment......

Surely on reflection certain people are regretting their transfer policy whilst viewing a big pay day......

2-0 to Fulham, if they go on to win what does this mean in crazy Spijed logic terms? The fact Leicester were league champions in 2016 surely means Scott Parker is one of the greatest managers of all time and that Fulham are one of the best teams in Europe (should they win)

Anyone who’s seen Fulham this season will know this has been on the cards. They create chances. The problems the other end where they’ve looked lost at times.

Definitely they always are attack minded but very suspect conceding, think mitrovic hasn't been at his best for them which hasn't helped their cause.

If they put 5 passes together it’s better than we managed.

Edit.

Sorry I meant to say to their own players.

Fulham looking very strong tonight. Well set up defensively, accurate and purposeful passing when they see the ball, and loads of pace on the counter.

Play like that for the remainder of the season and they'll stop up.

I bet they give Man City more to think about. In fact Man City might have to get out of 2nd gear.

Have to agree with Dyche re. his comments on Fulham
but add that West Brom, Brighton and Sheff. United have, from what I've
seen of them this season, look better than us.

I see it more as trying to have at least as many points as games played. So we're currently 4 bad.

36 should do it.

Basically we need 31 points from 29 matches.

I'll be :o if 40 points is needed for safety this season, 4 of the bottom 5 are currently well adrift of even a point a game.

I do agree that it doesn't matter what other teams do as long as we get the points and wins required, whether we will is a different matter, and if we don't we'll rightly deserve to go down.

From what I've seen so far I don't think we're any better than Fulham or West Brom tbh, particularly if Fulham stop leaking goals. Gonna be a tall order to stay up this season I feel.

We'll probably need another nine wins and four draws.

We have to target similar teams like Palace to get 2-3 mid table wins, plus perhaps a shock result from one of the top six.

But the important thing is to get lower table wins, especially at home to all the bottom sides.

This is what has served us well over the past 4 seasons, we've racked up a good number of wins against the mid to lower table sides.

So far this season we've only played 1 of those such sides at home in Palace, and we won that fixture, that's what gives me some hope that we can still amass enough points to get out of trouble, and in our away fixtures to the fellow strugglers we've nicked a couple of useful draws at West Brom & Brighton, if we're going to survive we'll need to do well in these 6-pointers, and thus far we are.

Despite our poor form at the start of the season, I'm sure we will pick up an unexpected win somewhere along the line. So as you rightly say the key is posting several wins against the other lower high sides, if we can do that we'll be OK.

I feel less confident about staying up than I have in any other Dyche-managed season in the PL. I hope I'm wrong but I just don't see us getting the points to do it.

Funny how the bookies still think we're more likely to stay up than go down. Should be some money to be made if all those saying we're doomed are right.
