Excuse me? In that case, what exactly was happening at Wembley on August 4 last year, when Fulham beat Brentford 2-1?

And of course Eze was playing yesterday.

With no Wilf or Jeff and Eze playing like dogshit. No. The only pace we had was Ayew.

So what if Fulham are in the bottom three. Their form right now is good. Since January they appear to have sorted themselves out after a horrific start.

Our problem is our play depends on pace on the counter. When nearly all the pace has gone out of the team we struggle. It's why we have failed to win so long without Wilf.

For years we've neglected buying creative players preferring cloggers. We've also continuously gone into seasons with 2 wingers at most. Then act surprised when we get injuries and everything drops off a cliff.

All of this goes back to the clubs awful recruitment. We failed to get in multiple wide men/strikers who can play out wide in the summer and January. We tried for five different players. We got none of them.

We've also been playing 4231/433 the last three matches and Ebs has just flat out struggled with playing in the hole. So much for he's a number 10. He'll effect games from there more.

Turns out him driving from deep with the ball from wide and coming into the centre works better. Now he just slows the game down. Gets tackled losing the ball or passes it straight back to the opposition.

He actually started on the left for just over 50% of his matches for QPR........There might have been a reason for that.

When crowds are finally allowed back into SP I'm not expecting to see a rush, with shit facilities and shit football that is too painful for words when watching it for free!

Even without the current unusual circumstances, outside of the bubble of the BBS, there would be no problem for the club to sell tickets as normal.

The club's in a bit of a rough holding pattern right now, but a new season brings fresh opportunities

With many people not taking on the clubs offer of giving them a 」400-500 loan interest free for the year will there be a early bird discount for previous ST holders?

There could be a lot of people being asked to spend over 」500 for a product they are saying they are struggling to even watch on TV.

Guess we will find out when ST's go on sale for next season.

I am undecided. Not having football has meant that we have had the opportunity to do lots of other stuff with the family which has been great. The current offer is certainly not encouraging a return where the 90 minutes is a fraction of the 7 hours door to door to attend.

That said I expect we will have a different manager with a different outlook next year which might help inspire, just not sure how the timing of knowing that will work with the timing of any ST discount.

This is where I'm at, if I know Roy is here next season I'll be looking for my 」200 holding fee back and the seat can go to someone else. Don't love the club any less than I did, just think there's better way to spend time and money than watching something that I don't enjoy.

Look, the hot tubs aren't cleaned as much as they used to be, but the service at the champagne and seafood bar these days is to die for.

My last foot masseuse in the Whitehorse was a bit rough, other than that, not sure why people complain.

Perhaps the piss isn't deep enough in the toilets?

I see Steve Parish came out of hiding on Twitter today.

Amen, watching paint dry has been suggested, but I've run out of decorating. Maybe I could sit and watch my toenails grow for 90 mins. It could rival yesterday's excitement.
