Same old shite! The game doesn't matter, we are safe, so what does Zola do? Pick the same bunch of workmanlike no hopers. Chance to give Daprela a run out? Why bother when you have a genius like Spector to play left back? Give McCarthy a run? What with Cole in such blistering goal scoring form? Try Diamanti at the head of a diamond? Why do that when we have the Gunter Netzer of Czech football in our squad? Try swapping Faubert and Behrami? What's the point when Behrami offers so much going forward, what with two goals netted over two seasons?
To be fair, I saw one of our best moves this season, with a string of fast passes taking the ball wide right to Ilan, switched wide left to Spector, passed inside to Noble whose shot on the turn nearly replicated that opening goal at Wolves. True Kovac had a free header inside just outside the six yard box which he put wide and Da Costa tested the keeper with a shot from 40 yards, but, apart from that, it's been same old, same old. Fulham have hit the bar (Green's positioning was so brilliant that it was impossible for Dempsey to get it over him and down again to score apparently) and walked the ball into the net with a quick exchange of passes on the edge of our box, putting Dempsey in the clear. Who played him onside? Would that be Mr Spector?
And that goal is the difference between the two teams. Fulham work triangles in our final third, we do the same thing - in our defensive third! Any changes planned for the second half Zola? Why, when everything is going so well?
