Was a bit concerned when I saw the starting line-up that we'd be too narrow, but Bishop got around the pitch so well that it wasn't a problem. Fulham actually passed the ball very well, but didn't offer a real goal threat. Was a bit worried when their left winger skipped past Chambers early on, but Luke played well & he didn't get behind him again. Key for me was our work rate & closing down, which were excellent throughout. Fulham got desperate in the last 10 minutes & resorted largely to long balls, which we dealt with pretty easily. We seem to have our form back & with a couple of home games against lower mid table teams coming up, who knows where we might be in 10 days time?
With Town fans in the Cutlers before; hoped Bishop & Sears would start . We looked really good after the change but the 2nd goal took the wind out of our sails. Mick has to be positive from the start rather than trying to match lower teams.
£70k a week on a 3 1/2 year deal for a 32 year old Jermaine Defoe? Good luck with unloading him if they're relegated. Hard to see him as a lone striker so will they change their formation to 4-4-2 & open themselves up?
