West Brom v Fulham | A Preview

West Brom v Fulham | A Preview

Following a sensational comeback against Manchester City last weekend and a penalty shootout loss to Chelsea on Wednesday evening, Fulham head to the Hawthorns with growing confidence. Both results in terms of performance were good, though the result was not. The previous four fixtures between the two sides have gone the way of the home side, with clean sheets kept in three of the four as well. This match will also see the Whites face off with their old manager …
Fulham in Europa | Cause for Concern?

Fulham in Europa | Cause for Concern?

The Europa League is often touted as a meaningless competition which is a far cry from the bright lights of the Champions League. It has been stated that it ruins league form and prohibits teams from making a real run in domestic cup competitions. But is this really true? Using statistics from last year’s English entrants, Manchester City and Liverpool, as well as Fulham's from two seasons ago, I’ll compare form in the league following Europa League outings. This chart …
Wasted Chances Costs Fulham Again

Wasted Chances Costs Fulham Again

As Fulham headed to St. James’s Park on Sunday, Whites’ supporters were hopeful the club could get their first win on the table before the end of August. The match started quite well for us, with some decent possession but no clear-cut chances. A quarter of an hour before the half-time interval,the momentum began to swing in the favour of the hosts, with Yohan Cabaye forcing a save from Mark Schwarzer, which certainly set them up well to take control …

For the purposes of comparison to other EPL players, I've included Matt Jarvis (Wolves) to the wingers stats and David Vaughn (Sunderland, previously Blackpool) to the centre-midfielders stats. …

Over the next few weeks, I'll be creating a guide for managers to use when making decisions regarding Fulham players. This will be a three-segment guide, with a section dedicated to defenders, midfielders and attackers. For analysis regarding FFC goalkeepers, refer to my previous article. Before we look at who some of the better options may be, let's look at what …
Battle Under the Bar at Fulham - goalkeepers

Battle Under the Bar at Fulham - goalkeepers

Heading into the 2011-2012 Barclays' Premier League season, Fulham will have a major dilemma on their hands in between the posts. The club recently acquired Csaba Somogyi from Hungarian side Rakospalotai EAC to provide extra depth in the scenario that David Stockdale is loaned out. The battle for the starter's job seems to have been already settled by new manager Martin Jol's intent to loan out the Englishman, but should it be? Thirty-eight year old veteran Mark Schwarzer didn't have …
