Skinning a cat

There are several ways to skin a cat.  Here are some of Fulham’s finest performances in the last two seasons, and the starting elevens for each:

Man Utd 10/11, 2-2: Stockdale, Paintsil, Hughes, Hangeland, Konchesky, Duff, Etuhu, Murphy, Davies, Dempsey, Zamora

Spurs 10/11, 4-0: Stockdale, Paintsil, Hughes, Hangeland, Salcido, Duff, Sidwell, Murphy, Dempsey, Dembele, Johnson

Juventus 09/10, 4-1: Schwarzer, Kelly, Hughes, Hangeland, Konchesky, Duff, Baird, Etuhu, Davies, Gera, Zamora

Basel 09/10, 3-2: Schwarzer, Smalling, Hughes, Kelly, Etuhu, Riise, Murphy, Greening, Gera, Zamora

Liverpool 09/10, 3-1: Schwarzer, Paintsil, Hughes, Hangeland, Konchesky, Dempsey, Greening, Baird, Duff, Zamora, Kamara

Man Utd 09/10, 3-0: Schwarzer, Paintsil, Hangeland, Hughes, Konchesky, Duff, Murphy, Baird, Dempsey, Gera, Zamora

It’s a team game, no? If Dickson Etuhu had a bad game on Saturday then there’s no great rush to declare him ‘unsuitable’ and lob Sidwell into the side.  It is, though, a reminder that Chris Baird should not be overlooked for the midfield job. We’ve done rather well with him in there.

One thought on “Skinning a cat

  1. Lots of ways to skin a cat, but:

    (1) Hughes at centreback in every game
    (2) Zamora, Duff, and Hangeland & Hughes partnership in all but one.
