attacking in tent
We struggle in the league cup at the best of times, so an away trip to a very in-form Sheffield Wednesday was a disaster waiting to happen. In the event, Wednesday appear to have fully deserved their win, a penalty from Gary Madine making the difference. Fulham thought they had equalised – Hangeland headed home a Rodallega free-kick – but this was ruled out for unspecified reasons, and that was that. The bare facts are that Fulham achieved a single shot on target all game, Wednesday managing 5 of same.
Not having seen the game it’s hard to know who did well, but these things always end up being auditions for fringe players and to that end the likes of Baird and Kasami will have been disappointed at how things turned out, particularly the latter, who was subbed on the hour for Marcello Trotta.
Ultimately Fulham paid for what summariser Danny Mills called a lack of attacking intent, which is frustrating if true, and somewhat surprising given the way we play these days.
