We have 6 days to dust off and regroup after last nights debacle....
Graphic thanks to Ric again.

I wouldn't mind seeing two upfront, maybe a risk away from home however. I think any striker we put out gets too isolated and the other problem is all three of our strikers are the same type of player. It would have been nice in January to get a smaller forward who offers another option rather then Chamakh. Maybe Maiga can get a run in the side when he returns.
Need players like J Cole, Jarvis and Collison to feature to make something happen attacking wise. We need a performance next week!
Demel Reid Tomkins O'Brien
Cole Collison Jarvis
Henderson Spence Diarra Nolan Taylor Vaz Cole
Can't keep including Nolan after endless poor performances, needs a rest, Collison's goal is enough for me to start him advanced, playing behind Chamakh.
Respect the point... if we can get one here it will be great
I hope Reid, Jarvis and Joe Cole and are fully fit for this.
Also, not the time to drop our most influential player due to a bad patch of form (Nolan)...we have few match winners in our team but he is certainly one of them.
Such an important game! a point is the very minimum or we could start getting dragged down into a dog fight at the bottom! know we all have our own opinions and I respect them, but you can't drop our most influential player??? I would put Reid well before him as being Our Most Influential Player!
Winston came off with a groin injury last night. If he's unavailable as well as Collins then it means wholesale change at the back.
Well that's an unreasonable opinion. Fulham are a good team.
Reid is one of our best players... for sure, but not one of our most influential.
How is he for team morale? How does he react when a youngster makes a mistake? What is his reaction when a fellow colleague has troubles off the field? How is he respected by the other players?
All this on top of being our top goalscorer.
I know people think a captains role is unimportant in the modern game... but remember Upson? Remember NRC when Pard's had lost the dressing room and Neill had to be bought in to be one of the catalysts to keep us up?
Yep, and rather bizarrely my dog ****ing ate them when they come through the door
So have to phone 24 hours beforehand to arrange for duplicates to be collected before match.
