Absolutely immense performance last night. HUGE win. Granted Fulham were poor and the fans lost it when Cairney was subbed off I thought we took full advantage and managed the game perfectly.

Bertrand was brilliant down the left teaming up with Redmond - very pleased with their link up play. All three CBs were awesome - Ings back in when fit and that should be our team for the run in.

Thought Valery was brilliant as well, the midfield three were superb and Austin was definitely the odd man outfitness wise but he did a job, caused problems and that's why I wanted him to play - even just having a forward to get amongst the opposition defence caused them problems and if he can give a few 50/ 60 min performances hopefully that will all the void Ings has left.

I must say Long was pretty dire when he came on but Fulham never looked like scoring and we never really gave them a chance. If we could nick a draw in either of our next two to set up Brighton away that should put us in a good place.

Out of the bottom 3, let's keep it that way now. If we could beat Brighton that'd well and truly suck them into it as well.

To anyone at the game, And also the eds, what is your opinion of cairney? He seemed to be one of there best players last season in getting promoted but hasn't done a lot this season. has he been misused or is he just not up to premier league standard? I always thought he was the type of creative midfielder that we lacked, having seen a lot of championship highlights of Fulham last year. any info would be great.

{Ed001's Note - he missed a chunk with injury mate. He is only just getting going but has been one of their better players.}

Ranieri played him on the right and the Fulham fans weren’t happy. I think they see him as their creative spark but I can’t remember seeing him play at CAM (favoured position) at all this season.
I don’t think it’s helped that their defence has been so poor - after Jokanovic’s misgivings Ranieri tried to shore up defence by playing a very defensive 4-3-3 to stop shafting goals but that’s just restrained the attack - they had about three meaningful attempts all game.
If Fulham go down he’s definitely someone I think we could be looking at - he has the quality when played in the right position and fits our mould. Don’t think he’s been given the best opportunities this season.

Cheers ED.
Ggsy they're definitely going down, so maybe he'd be available at a decent price. Would add creativity in the middle/ number 10. I'd take him, 2 new cbs a striker and a pacy left footed winger.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome MS.}

May be getting a bit ahead of myself but if we could stay up there’d be decent signings to be made out of Fulham - they’d have to sell given their exploits in the summer. Cairney, Seri, Mitrovic, Sessegnon. Not saying they’d necessarily suit us but would be available at discount prices and would want PL football. maybe something to look into.

I don't know if mitrovic would suit our style or not but I do like him. I'm not bothered about sessegnon, think he would still cost mental money. Seri hasn't really done a lot and still cost 25 million so I would pass on him. I think they look worse than average and overpaid on players, some of which we were in for but made the right decision not to get involved with for the moment quoted.

I'd take Mitrovic over Austin or Ings but I don't think anyone else in Fulham's squad is better than we already have. Surely the idea is to purchase players better than those you have and it looks like this Fulham squad is going down so not too many top players there.

Sessengnon would be awesome - maybe the fact that he's failed to set the PL alight would give us a shot at getting him. Still likely to cost more than we'd spend, though.

Cairney would definitely be worth a look, as would Mitrovic. Can't decide if Mitro would fit our play though; we've lacked a strong presence up top since Pelle but I sense Hassenhutl would prefer pace and work rate up top.
