straight red for the Fulham right on half time, 0-0 so far.

Right back Anthony Robinson gone

I expected Fulham to be leading by now.

Fulham and the other teams in and around the bottom want to stay up and give their all. We on the other hand look content with sleeping walking towards relegation.

Could do with Chelsea getting a few goals now. I've been impressed with Fulham in the Spurs game and in the first half tonight, if they manage to get anything out of the game they will show they have the character to avoid the drop.

So our players aren't trying then?

Fulham seem to be getting away with some very dodgy things from Chelsea corners.

Yeah, that Fulham player was really giving his all to help his team avoid relegation wasn't he.

What a load of rubbish. And what is 'sleepwalking towards relegation'? It's one of the laziest, overused phrases on here.

Chelsea huffing and puffing. Couple of chances wasted.

I know Chelsea were on a good run of results when they thumped us but Fulham seem to be defending better than we did against them.

Werner misses guilt edged chance. Chelsea not exactly comfortable.

Long way to go some good days and bad days to come the best day will be when we have enough points to stay up.

The one thing you can never accuse any BFC players of is not giving their all for the cause, yes we might lack quality in certain areas, but we always give 100%.

Because we show to much respect and fear against these clubs.
An instant white flag raised especially to man city for some reason

You have to remember that the media want Fulham to stay up because they play the football the PL and its operatives want.
In 2018/19 when they were relegated, they averaged 520 passes per goals scored and scored 34, as opposed to our 289 per goals scored when we scored 45.
This season so far, without tonight's match, they have exceeded their target and are now up to averaging 522 passes per goal and have scored 14. We are worse than that so far with average 639 passes per goal scored.

Villa are one of the media darlings but are bucking the trend because they are only averaging 203 passes per goal and have scored 29 goals

You can knock the ball about, work hard, run a lot, however, unless you score goals all the effort is wasted.
