Think today showed we need Defoe. With the chances we had, he'd have scored a hattrick today

Merlin, we were teasing. Like a cat with an injured mouse. Bring on Chelski.

Wasnt able to watch the game, but seeing as though we got an OG and then stole it in injury time, maybe we got lucky? Happy either way, very happy. Now on to the last week of signings, if any.

A game that we should have won convincingly, we could so easily have lost, due to our old failing of not having a quality finisher who can put the chances away. Fulham were denied a clear shout for a penalty, they hit the post, and Carson made that save at the death. Apart from that we ran them ragged, but simply couldn't finish. Until that problem is rectified, we're going nowhere.

Didn't see the game, as am overseas - can anybody tell me did Davis and Hughes get a decent reception from fans at VP?

YatesyVillain, Hughes didnt play and the crowd applauded Davis and he clapped back. So yes he got a very good reception

Got a very strong feeling that the boo-boys will shortly be turning their attention from Stiliyan Petrov to John Carew though Eaton_thevillafan. You can see it brewing.
