With the most recent international break behind us and none scheduled this spring, Fulham’s season can now fully set sail until season’s end.
That is, until those obnoxious FA Cup weekends where we’re not playing due to an earlier exit from the competition.
Anywho, Saturday will mark just the third time in the past three seasons that Fulham have to travel following an international break. Bizarre, but true:
Fulham 2-1 Bolton Wanderers
Fulham 0-0 Sunderland
Fulham 0-1 Liverpool
Fulham 2-1 Everton
Fulham 2-0 Hull City
Birmingham 1-0 Fulham
Fulham 2-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
Fulham 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur
Fulham 3-0 Blackpool
Fulham 1-1 Blackburn Rovers
Stoke City 2-0 Fulham
Sunderland ?-? Fulham
Here I was thinking our record overall after international breaks is bad when, really, it’s pretty darn good: P11 W5 D2 L4. Is that all from the coincidence of our constant home games? Perhaps.
Fulham’s record on the road in general is not great, so it’s no surprise that we’ve never even gotten an away point after an international break.
Yet this year it feels a bit worrying. The home match against Blackburn felt like a loss although we nicked a draw. Last month our travel to Stoke City was probably the worst performance of the season.
Here’s hoping Saturday is a bit different.
