2 Goals in 15 Mins Sinks Norwich | Fulham 2 Norwich 1

I'm starting to get irritated with comments like "a year go we would never have dreamed of losing 2-1 at Fulham" that seem to be coming from some of the Norwich support.  Players, managers and football fans want to win and are disappointed when we lose.  I sulk for at least a few days when we lose regardless of if that is against Barnet or Barcelona so I'm not going to shrug it off as being "grateful for where we …

I will have a look at just how dominant their midfield was: [table id=46 /] [table id=47 …
Third Month | Three Wins - Fulham 0 Swansea 3

Third Month | Three Wins - Fulham 0 Swansea 3

Many believe 36 points will be enough to stay up this season. So having surpassed that figure with a victory over Man City, the pressure had been lifted off Swansea somewhat. I would say they can now freely express themselves, but that is what they have done throughout the season. Fulham are a force to be reckoned with at Craven Cottage and Swansea were on a high; with both teams playing free-flowing football this was shaping up to be a …
