Fulham 2 City 1.

Another disappointing outcome from a trip down to the capital which sees us lose some ground on our bid to get a stranglehold on a top six berth.
I've not managed to catch any of the action but from the match reports and speaking to those who went down to the game, there isn't much cause for complaint although it was a game that we really should be expected to be picking points up from.
The GMR commentary seemed to suggest that Cole wasn't completely fit, whilst it seems that Dunne was rushed back a little early after only a 45 minute reserve outing due to the injury sustained by Sommeil against Villa last Monday.
All the focus was probably on Steed Malbranque, following Pearce's pre-season flirtation in trying to prise him away from Fulham, and with him yet to put pen to paper on new deal, he seems to have very much passed his audition if Pearce is still keen on him. How much will Saturday's display put on a potential transfer fee though?
No game this weekend with international week, before we face Blackburn and Liverpool at home in consecutive weeks.

One word, well two players actually- Croft and Ireland

Those boys are players lad.

Well done the Man City for having quality like that coming thru the ranks.

Almost as good as Celtics!!!!!!
