Fulham after 9 games

This season seems par for course, no?

Worth noting that in 2008-09, we had a game in hand compared to other teams due to United’s involvement in that UEFA Super Cup silliness.

And were we really 8th in 2006-07 around this time?!?

    1. The thing there though is that if a team has the capability of winning 6-0 it suggests quality buried somewhere. Bad teams don’t win 6-0. Decent teams on a bad trot do go through goalscoring downturns, though.

  1. only thing that bothers me about making comparisons to last season is that this year we have a pretty much 100% fit squad to choose from. We’ve got a few niggling injuries here and there but nothing to the extent of what we ended up with last year…

  2. Still lots of games to go, so not panicking yet, but the idea of finishing in the top 10 must surely be put to bed now.

    I think a season of ‘struggling’ might help some fans, remind us that we are Fulham, not Manchester United and cannot win every game we play

    I wouldn’t mind if Fulham lost every game of the season as long as the players worked their arses off and gave 100%. I do mind when we lose and it looks like no one gives a shit – e.g. Krakow game last week. Everton game – whilst it was certainly disappointing and frustrating – the loss was easier to take for me cos the players worked pretty hard most of the game.

  4. From memory, 2006/7 was the season we won 2-1 at Newcastle (when Bullard got injured) so that’s why we were higher that year than any other – an early away win, which never ever happens.

    In fact, is that the only time in the last 5/6 years we’ve won away before Christmas?

  5. Since some of those seasons ended with ‘meh’ and some with ‘yay!’ all this goes to show is that anything could happen really.

  6. Since some of those seasons ended in ‘meh’ and some in ‘yay!’ I guess this only shows that anything could happen really.

  7. Our -1 goal difference is tied for 9th. That place is about where we’ve been at this point the past few seasons, and right about where we’ve wound up in the points column at the end of those seasons. These things do even out, given time.

  8. It’s worth saying that goal difference is often a very good pointer to how things pan out. Regardless of our 6-0 win, our goal difference is once again good. Looking at QPR for example, they seem in a false points position as per Hull and Blackpool beforehand.

      1. It’s funny, I check that every time I look at the table. At some point the Goal Differential and Points will consolidate to a position in the table reflective of both. Kind of an exercise in economics methinks.

  9. Pretty much indicates an average season. Start off slow, hanging round the drop zone at Xmas then pull away at some stage in the New Year (hopefully not the last game of the season),
