dunno what to say, different Fulham side i've seen in a while, they really wroked hard. Carson is no way in my opinion a 10 million keeper, his positioning for the free kick was awful, the ball wasn't even in the top corner. Hope Gabby and Davies are alright.... injuries

carson is def not a £10m keeper, he is about as commanding as Oakes was

Too many poor performances. No excuse the game was there for the taking. Agree about Carson, and not just because of this one game. £10m? Never.

we need to get a good balance of experience and I think the goalkeeping position should go to someone older and wiser. When was the last time Carson kept a clean sheet? I hope he doesnt play for england cos he's not all there, Rob Green is a way better keeper

Not true, Fear, we deserved a sharp kick in the cojones and clip 'round the ear. Bravo to Fulham, particularly Mr Bullard who worked his rugby-player-lookalike arse off. Also, an honourable mention to Shaun Maloney who reminds me of a wasp that can play football.

Got to agree about Carson's positioning for the free kick. Shocking. Gutted really. Without either Young or Gabby we never really looked like scoring. Rather worrying. Any news on Gabby any one? He'll be GUTTED if he has to miss his first England call up.
