    Literally everything I dislike about the Prem in one picture. We probably get it worse than most being in London and being relatively accessible to tourists I suppose.

    Entertaining game today, Bonatini and Milosevic both impressed, plus Wague got a goal on his debut. Still no Carvalho though, think he's definitely gone in the summer. Brentford look great going forward but they are woeful in defence.

    genuinely do not see an issue with this. Hate half and half scarves personally but who cares if people buy them

    I just have an issue with tourists showing up for a nice day out to see Man Utd in the home end, because that seat could have gone to a genuine Fulham fan who'd help to generate an atmosphere were we not charging extortionate prices.

    We'll probably end up with more people turning up to see Liverpool than Fulham fans in the ground for when we play them in Mid-March. Especially after we **** the way we released the tickets for it in the week which was basically a touts paradise.

    This is one of the reasons why the Premierleague isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    Well, that, and unless you're one of the Top 6 you're basically just in the PL to exist and get beaten by said Top 6. Said it in here before, we did the "stable Mid-Table" club routine for most of the 2000s and early 2010s and it just gets boring after a while, at least we had a Europa League final run which is better than the West Ham's and Watford's can ever hope for now. And that was when the "Top 6" was just a "Top 4" (for the majority) and the gap between said Top 4 and the rest wasn't nearly as big as it is now. Just have to look at the points the top teams are getting vs what they were getting even 3 or 4 years ago to see how much the gap is widening.

    Did they highlight his masterclass on MOTD or something? To be fair to him he's been one of our better overall performers defensively albeit the bar is extremely low. Think he could do a job for us next season though. Either in a two with Mawson or as a LCB in a three with Mawson as Centre-CB and Odoi RCB.

    Well aware its not the worst decision but stuff like this being given as a yellow (not even a foul and i don't understand why it would be a yellow even if it was) and costing us Nathan Thompson for 2 matches is why we need better refs
    Must see at least 5 or 6 just plainly ridiculous decisions like this every game at the moment, it's impossible to tell who should actually win

    Looking at League One, I was hoping that we'd get Portsmouth/Sunderland/Peterborough all promoted this year but it looks like Luton will probably get promoted. They've bounced around quite a fair bit so I can't begrudge them success.
    • Relegated from the Prem in 92.
    • Relegated from Championship in 96.
    • Relegated from League One in 2000.
    • Promoted in 2001 from League Two.
    • Promoted in 2005 from League One.
    • Relegated in 2007 from Championship.
    • Relegated in 2008 from League One.
    • Relegated in 2010 from League Two.
    • Made the playoffs 3 out of 4 times in the Conference.
    • Got promoted to League Two in 2015.
    • Got promoted to League One in 2018.

    Don't want Barnsley or Charlton to get promoted, because they don't add anything to the league, boring fixtures. Doncaster, like Burton and Rotherham before them are relegation fodder.

    I like Portsmouth, they are too big for League One and so are Sunderland.

    I want Luton and Pompey for the automatics just because they're away games I can do relatively easily. Wouldn't mind Charlton for that reason, but with their owners they'd just go straight back down. Blackpool's always a fun away day though if they can sneak in there. If I had to bet on it right this second I'd say Luton, Barnsley and Sunderland though.

    On a similar note, I think someone at Manchester City Council is against the way football has gone (or a United fan). I was just driving through Manc and one of the digital roadside signs said:

    EFLL Prediction League

    For the second time, Dizzy Bala has won the lobby prediction league. His previous victory was in the 16/17 season when he won by correct scores. Bala remarked, "It's a bittersweet day for me. Bagnall pushed hard for most of the season, but as Walsall's form dipped, so did his interest in the league. But, I'm proud of all the boys for taking part, we go again next season." Bala is joined in the pantheon of lobby legends by former winners UK Cam, Collett, Mott1993, WFCBagnall and LaMertesackerRun

    Or maybe both are occurring in roughly the same area between 10am and 6pm

    Probably true but they should use punctuation or 'and' if so.

    Only got so many characters on one of those bad boys mate. Efficiency is the name of the game. If they wanted accuracy it should've read 'Chinese New Year Event' to avoid confusion. Some could envisage a delegation of Chinese people from New York visiting the area otherwise.

    I take my comment about League 2 refs not being worse than Championship refs back.

    Can there be a rule that you have to stop singing "X had a dream, X at the back, X in attack, we're X, we're on our way back" after you've been promoted to the Premier League. You're already back.

    genuinely do not see an issue with this. Hate half and half scarves personally but who cares if people buy them

    Can't speak for the asian market, but Fulham have a substantial following in the US so American tourists in the home end may actually be Fulham fans.

    American I could understand a bit more considering we've basically always had an American at the club over the last 20 years between Hahnemann, Bocanegra, McBride, Dempsey, Ream etc. and we've had the link with the Jaguars over the last 4 or 5 years . If you're a genuine Fulham fan who happens to also be a tourist fair enough, because you'll try and generate an atmosphere, but between the half and half scarves and the selfies I have the slightest feeling those three were only there to see Man Utd.
