Fulham awful at the back, hopefully we can find that killer ball and see them off early.

Decent game which promises a few more goals.

Koch looks a handy weapon when we have some corners too.

My thinking too :tup:

Get Struijk on

We need to tighten up the passing and stop giving the ball away so cheaply.

If we do that we run them out of the park in the second half.

He could put Strujik on and shove Phillips further forward, probably have to take Rodrigo off as he still looks rusty to me

Started getting concerned when I saw the body language after we scored. Saw the complacency, saw a bit of slacking off.

Koch - oh my, you silly boy. No need to go in like that, it looked like Bryant was going to run the ball out. That said, he made a vital save on Mitrovich in a position where he was surely fancied to score. Needs to calm the hell down, though, that's what I miss about White.

We need to turn up the energy in the second half. We do that, we'll come away 3-1 or 4-1 (my prediction). Fulham typically are stronger in the first half.

How he got his head onto the ball & keep it on target was incredible

Good half (apart from the sloppy penalty). Would like to see Rodrigo and Harrison getting more involved in the second half.

Was thinking the same thing, the technique on that header was something we don't see from many of our attackers. That Ariola's a good keeper.

Rodrigo's no magician (yet) but he was solid enough.

Yeah, just a bit naive at the back

Both pens very soft. Scoreline is good performance not so good.

I had a link to the RTE commentary before it taken down, it was pretty good I thought

That first-half is almost a replica of our game v Fulham last season

Pablo came on & Reed hardly got a kick in the second-half & we totally dominated from then on

Think Koch is just desperate to impress and wants to be 1st to everything.

Shame because he has made 2 really important defensive contributions.

Hector header and when Mitrovic was about to shoot.

Rodders will score, i have a feeling

Fulham are usually poorer in the second half. We need to turn up the heat though.

Robbie Eliiott commenting in USA:

"Rodrigo is an out and out 9 so expect Bamford to play behind him"

Then he called the Fulham keeper Meslier
