Fulham v DERBY @ Craven Cottage 20.10.07

Got my tickets this morning So will finally make it to my first away game of the season.

We really need something from this one, first away goal of the season will do for starters

As for the team, Mears back in his normal position of right back, Barnes on the right, and Earnshaw up front with Miller, we've got to keep the ball on the floor, that's what we do best, but to often especially when we're losing we resort to hoofing it towards Howard, and it's a complete waste of time.

If Baird plays you can't fail but to score an away goal. Fulham played some really grim stuff against us, Sanchez well and truly a 'son of Beck'

OOOO yess Kamara Kamara... He really was an waste of space at Wembley along with all the others but wont go into that... ermm Fulham are a team that we could either get really beaten by or a team we could score our first goal against away from home???.... can't make me mind up yet

But Miller is a must for me now upfront...he's either gotta be with Howard or Earnshaw now

Is really hoping one day we will create footballer's who are actually creative rather than have 'great' engines...is that hard to ask

We should be able to get a goal, but Fulham are equally capable....score draw would do me.

The 3 teams he came up against a proper team he was useless...must have been just Darren Moore is such a good defender

MATCH PREVIEW: FULHAM v DERBY
Posted on: Thu 18 Oct 2007

Derby County have the chance to get the next stage of their season underway on Saturday with another opportunity to lift themselves off the bottom of the table.

They have had two weeks to get the defeat at Reading out of their system during the latest international break.

Now they go to Fulham on Saturday knowing that victory will lift them off the bottom of the table and above their hosts.

But success is paramount for the Craven Cottage side too.

Fulham find themselves third from bottom, just two places and two points above the Rams and with just one win to their name this season.

That success came at Craven Cottage where they have also drawn twice and been beaten twice.

Lawrie Sanchez did well to stabilise Fulham last season but 2007/08 hasn't been too kind so far.

TEAM NEWS

Lee Cook and Jimmy Bullard (both knee) remain on the sidelines with long-term knee injuries.

Derby have Craig Fagan back after his four-game ban and boss Billy Davies will be hoping his internationals return unscathed from their travels.

MATCH QUOTE

Defender Chris Baird told www.fulhamfc.com: "We've got to pick ourselves up, get some rest and look forward to the game against Derby.

"It's a massive game - three points and nothing less.

"That's what we want. We'll be going all out to get them so fingers crossed."

MATCH FACTS

Derby's last league trip to Craven Cottage ended in a 0-0 draw, in August 2001, though they have lost there in both the League Cup and the FA Cup since.

Dean Leacock joined the Rams from Fulham and - if he plays on Saturday - will be making his 50th Derby appearance.

Steve Howard needs just two more appearances to reach 550 in his career.

THE REFEREE

Phil Dowd takes charge of Derby for the first time in a season that has so far seen him sent to a range of venues from Leigh RMI to the Emirates Stadium.

Dowd has issued 33 yellow cards and added one dismissal in his ten 2007/08 outings.

His last Derby assignment came on the final day of 2005/06 when he blew the whistle when Sheffield Wednesday won 2-0 at Pride Park.

Another big game, where we're hopeful of points, we really need to do something away from home, it might be your home form that will keep you up, but you've still go to pick the odd point up here and there away.

Billy hinting at a Earnie recall

Hopefully in a 4-4-2 with Miller, I suspect Feilhaber might be back on the bench, the 2 wide slots are up for grabs though, with Fagan back in contention and Barnes nearing full fitness, think Lewis could take the slot on the left side.

Hopefully Mears back to his normal position at right back as well.

Hmmm well after a pretty abysmal week soo far... attentions turn to Craven Cottage, and after 2 weeks since we beaten at Reading, has it been a blessing in disguise or is it just 2 weeks more to think about relegation

Along with Reading, Fulham are a team that we should be looking to get points off here.. erm they have spent over the summer but you just feel that they are a team that can get beaten at home. Perhaps if we get a good performance this could be achieved

I think its good that Barnes is getting back to near full fitness, along with Feilhaber as well.. I just wonder though if the old guard such as Grifin and Lewis though will keep their position. I have lost patience now with griffin and would gladly see him on the bench :thmbdown:

Also another point... where as Andy Todd gone , is he injured or anything or did his previous performances vs Liverpool and Spurs totally take him out of contention!!!

Result - I reckon if we play to our potential a draw is a likely and realistic aim.. the problem for us though is away from home we likely to concede which is a problem before we start. but hopefully in the time off the defence has had chance to work with each other. Gonna tip for a 1-1 draw with Miller scoring

C'mon your Rams

Is really hoping one day we will create footballer's who are actually creative rather than have 'great' engines...is that hard to ask

well we finally get an away point and keep a clean sheet but also this is a game where I feel Derby needed to push for three points, Fulham were down to 10 men for the whole second half but they still seemed dangerous in that process

Derby off the bottom of the table, positive point but I think it should have been more

11. West Ham 8 1 10
12. Reading 10 -10 10
13. Fulham 10 -4 8
14. Birmingham 10 -5 8
15. Sunderland 9 -6 8
16. Wigan 10 -6 8
17. Middlesbrough 10 -8 8
---------------------------
18. Tottenham 9 -2 7
19. Derby 10 -17 6
20. Bolton 10 -7 5

goal difference is a killer!

Its great listning to a Leicester's fan outlook at the current situation at Derby.. I mean lets be honest, I think we are all in owe of Leicester's glorious situation at the moment. I mean 17th in the Championship is a pretty good feet to be fair.. so congrats to you !!!

Well after obviously not going to the game.. I had to rely on radio and watching the highlights on Match of the Day to watch us....

I would comftably say that was our best performance on the road by a country mile.. creating numerous amount of chances throughout the game. Obviously Konchesky's sending off, made Fulham change and got a bit more defensive, thus giving us more possession and play

Slightly disappointed that we didn't score and even possibly get a win down there.. no doubt Jimbo will give us his take on the game.. but I can't help but feelt we let an awesome chance of getting 3 points today, slip away from us!!

This seasons relegation battle should be very interesting, saw Bolton yesterday under their new manager, losing to Arsenal, i think they are a good bet to go down. i think spurs will move up once they kick Jol out, but boro, wigan and reading all are struggling. fulham too are in danger, they always rely on home wins, but this season they are not doing so well at home.

btw nice to see the Pompeys challenging for champions league place.

Interesting game they might have gone down to 10 men, but seems as we had 3 defenders have to go off injured and had to play Tyrone Mears centre back and Eddie Lewis left back, that almost evened things up, the way it messed our team about.

Our passing game was way off compared to other weeks, but we managed to create loads of chances, and in all honesty you just have to give Niemi credit, he was brilliant (I was right behind the goal 2nd half, and just wanted to run on and stab him or something ) Miller had the 2 really good chances, the one in the last minute was the best and so close.

Barnes is looking sharper every week, which is a good sign. I'm happy enough with a point, I've said all along we need to just keep plodding along until January and hope we can do something then that willmake the diference.

One thing for certain though, when we play them at Pride Park, we have to beat them.
