Sorry, but that's absolutely rubbish. Fulham seriously couldn't field 11 players? Of course they could have done if they wanted. To not put a team out at sort notice is insulting to everybody and I hope Mr Mohammed "Where's my passport" "Boo, hoo, the Queen killed my son" Al-Fayed is forced to pay a lot of money in compensation. Failing that, Fulham should be kicked out of the reserve league.

Certainly seems a very weak excuse, one that probably needs looking into by the powers that be. Pity though, I was looking forward to seeing the game, including taking my first look at Phil Bardsley.

I hope we get the three points by default, i also wonder if Hendrie and Bardsley would have taken the field....... Never know now. What kind of Mickey Mouse outfit are they.

Newcastle United under Kevin kegan ditched the Reserves? It looks like the Premier League don`t hold it`s value much either. The reserve league, could and should be run like all other FA leagues, you put a team out and fulfil the fixture, youth and first team players if needed.

A postponement that will upset the regular diehards, all 500 of us.
