Fulham tomorrow and match facts from the BBC

It's not been a great couple of weeks has it and I've been reading on Twitter that our former CEO created a Twitter account and posted an angry letter for everyone to see, moaning a lot about the new CEO or President of Operations, I'm not sure these days.

Okay, it might not be the former CEO, but it does feel like if someone really did love the Club, they wouldn't be sharing that on Twitter, it's not what we need. But, it's done now and I'll write what I wrote on Twitter and that's that I trust the owners and Chris Heck is new and new people want new things.

And should be seen as an unwanted distraction and hopefully quickly forgotten. You see, it's not been a great couple of weeks because of results. We were slow against Chelsea and off the pace, but against Manchester United, we were very unlucky to lose, but lose we did. 

And it's not just the results, we're losing players on a consistent basis at the moment. Kamara is out for the season and Carlos is out for a few weeks after picking up a hamstring injury in training. In good news though, Torres and Digne are back and even though I like Moreno, Digne delivers.

And we're not the only side that has suffered with injuries, it's what we do with the players that we have that count and I think our squad is good enough to compete and I have faith that they'll create and give everything they can. A little luck going our way for once would be nice though.

All that written, it really is an important match. I don't need to spell it out we all know why and I think there will be a group of people tomorrow that know it as much, if not more, than we do. It's all about the 90 minutes tomorrow and maybe results in other places.

I'll be back then, with a bottle of red.
