Re: Fulham v Wolves

I've always reckoned that a point per game advantage is enough to almost guarantee you will not be caught. Should Fulham lose tonight or we win on Sunday then we will be at that point - 7 clear with 7 to play.

(Even better if both of those parameters happen, of course)

Re: Pieters v Taylor

Taylor, when on song, is first choice - but he can be rather inconsistent and when not on song he is not good at all.

Pieters never makes you feel those wow moments but his consistency is very easy on the eye and the nerves.

In summary, I don't mind seeing either name on the teamsheet.
