Monday games are horrid for me. Being on the West Coast of the United States, they're right in the middle of my work day. To make matters worse, I used the international break to take a 10 day vacation, so you can imagine how much stuff is piled up for me to get through today. The good news is that I'm excited to have soccer back in my life. Other than attending one USA game, I have barely watched any over the last ten days and I'm looking forward to getting back into my routine.
This is about as close to a must win game as Fulham can have. Not getting three points here means that the squad may need to pick up points in some of the harder up coming fixtures just to keep pace in the table. No one wants a relegation battle, and one of the best ways to avoid it is to beat the other teams who are going to be battling for relegation. We've already beaten Sunderland away, if we can beat Crystal Palace away as well; that's six points for Fulham and more importantly keeping points away from teams at the bottom of the table.
