    I've got great memories of my last visit, a 5-1 hammering in our promotion season!

    I'm hopeful that Fulham's desperate need for points will play into our hands on the counter.

    Goals goals goals.

    I'm predicting 5-3 to Bournemouth

    Well a 5-1 away win again wouldn't be a total shock!

    Everyone's predicting goals. Nailed on 0-0 or 1-0 to Fulham...

    I thought we might have a chance till I saw the Ref was Andre Mariner. Not my favourite, in fact I think he's a complete tosser and a Villa fan too.
    Sounds like Jokanovic will continue to experiment with the defence and hope our attacking style can compensate by scoring more goals.
    If Begovic is on top form it will be difficult, and for me Fraser is the player who could do the damage against us.

    I honestly think Bournemouth have better attacking quality. I think they will leave it all n the pitch.

    Going for a Fulham upset.
    Though I'd rather Wilson and Fraser tear shit up.

    Great, solid and clinical. Ake outstanding and our midfield of Lerma, Cook and Brooks gets better every game. We are lucky to have them.

    Love Craven Cottage and hope Fulham stay up.

    Fancy a fight for the Europa League Bournemouth? Its great to see us both doing so well... nobody gave us a chance when we got promoted.

    4-0 was a freak result though imo!

    So true. As I said, us two challenging for the top 6 would be crazy.

    Pretty abject again.

    Probably didn’t deserve to be a 0-3 but that’s the least threatening going forward we’ve looked in a long time.

    We just look bereft of confidence. Huddersfield is massive.

    Cairney being back is huge though- whole mood changed massively when he came on.

    I’m still not spamming the panic button massively yet, we’ll play a lot of teams worse than a well organised and fluid Bournemouth side (even if they were irritatingly cynical) and think we just need a win to get us going again offensively.

    Side note was I thought Rico looked very useful.

    We were just a different level to Fulham. They can keep the ball well but they had nothing up top and their defence came apart very easily.

    A routine, convincing away win and 3 clean sheets in a row. Fantastic stuff.

    It’s funny how a fan of a team that regularly chopped down our players to stop counter attacks can think we were cynical!

    Today Jokanovic tried to play in a more controlled defensive manner but again after the penalty, confidence was low and it was a struggle. Didn't understand the choice of playing Kamara.
    Bournemouth are a good team but I expected us to put up a better fight than we did. Our midfield never got to grips with theirs and neither helped our defence or feed our forwards.The balance wasn't right except for a 15 minute spell when Cairney was on. But going down to 10 men we were never getting back into the game.

    Yep and had a player get booked for a horrendous dive, and a player sent off for a cynical tackle...

    Yeah fair enough I can’t disagree that we were poor in terms of discipline but come on your lot were definitely overreacting and time wasting ever since the penalty
    I can’t disagree :laugh: though Aboubakar Kamara does not represent Fulham, as much as I love him

    Overacting, I don’t think so. But they did time waste a little as most teams do.

    Having watched it back the penalty was definitely so but christ Wilson, Fraser and Brooks were all over the place in terms of diving and overreacting IMO (though I’m probably biased and bitter!)
