We played for a draw in the end
 
 
Very good first half, in which we made a decent side look very poor. Traore was very good. What imprssed me today was his movement off the ball. As soon as we played a ball up to Gestede he was on the move looking to make runs in behind, and a couple of times he ran onto balls played over the top from Leadbitter.

Leadbitter was mopping up in the first half and seemeed to be picking up all of the loose balls, and we pressed them well, with Downing setting the tone.

This changed in the 2nd half. We stopped pressing them, and stopped looking to get the ball down and play, instead punting long, hopeful balls forward, or trying to switch it with the diagonal ball, but Fulham read it every time. Friend and Shotton were both the biggest culprits in this respect, and it was horrible to watch at times.

I just felt we sat off them far too much, particularly in the last 20 minutes, and you could see their goal coming.

I think to an extent we were unlucky today. We should have had a penalty in the 2nd for the foul on Braithwaite, and we did miss some great chances, but we ultimately let ourselves down with a poor 2nd half.

I agree, parmoboy. The subs were very negative (apart from Britt).

Credit to Fulham, they knocked the ball about with purpose second half. I was impressed.

Clayton coming on for Braithwaite was a strange one, especially when we had Bamford sitting on the bench. Smacked of Pulis trying to shore things up. Britt tried to chase things down but as soon as one fo their defenders bypassed him there was nobody from midfield looking to push up and press. Was disappointing, especially after the first half performance.

Ran out of steam in the end, we donít have the players to play a high intensity, high press and it showed. We actually played some really good football in the first twenty minutes or so, but as the legs went, the long balls started and we were stuck in a vicious cycle, it was painful to watch.
