    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    Watson and Worrall need crediting for their parts in that goal. Positioning and looking for a simple pass.....no messing. Robinson also, at the start of the move he makes space for his team mates without fuss

    Wow every highlight inc the official club ones show the first goal from half way through. Didn't realise it was even better than that. That was a work of art, quick and slick with Fulham left chasing shadows. Deserved to win a game on its own.

    I can't stop watching the first goal. The way we stretch the play from side to side is brilliant.

    It was a superb team goal, every man being involved, including the goalkeeper who started the move.

    Fulham couldnít get anywhere near it until the ball was in their net.

    Brilliant flowing football. The Goal-of-The-Season competition is going to have to have some real belters to beat that.

    Worrall's distribution has massively improved since the Leeds game. Seems to have cut out the floated passes forwards that are easy to cut out or at least give the opposition plenty of time to close the recipient down, instead looking for short angled passes into feet, which open up space.

    i think that worrall's and dawson's improvements, if they'll keep playing on that level, should be credited to SL

    not only because it looks that he is working in training on that but because he forms the team in a way to reduce exposing the problems of players

    This is my retort to the people who are saying Ďwell it wasnít good enough for Dougie so why is it good enough for Sabrií

    If you watch the highlights of the Millwall game itís clear to see that whilst Fulham are incredibly dominant on the ball, they donít have a clear link between midfield and attack to create consistent high quality chances. They play a bank of 4 and a bank of 5 when in possession of the ball and rely on individual quality to score goals; they donít seem to score tap ins.

    Sabri has clearly seen this and set the team up on the counter to play to our strengths in the middle of the park. They canít break us down defensively, and if we defend in numbers at the edges of the 18 yard box we stop them from individual quality efforts.

    Compare this to Birmingham, where we continuously passed down the wings as we knew Ameobi and Lolley would get joy with crosses into the box.

    It will be very interesting to see how we set up on Saturday against Preston who have made a very good start but I have no idea how they play - I bet SL does though!

    Thing is there is also a difference between having a lead to protect and having 20-30% possession & being level/behind with 20-30% possession.

    At half time my son showed me the match stats on his phone. Found them very strange as I thought we looked very comfortable in the first 45 minutes. Second half was a bit more nervy.

    I can’t understand why folk put any emphasis on possession stats, tells you absolutely fuck all about the game, just a load of sky sports bollocks.

    Imagine Cloughies reaction to being presented with possession stats

    Magic Hands alone had the ball for 20% of the second half.

    Possession stats donít tell you which team was in control.

    We regularly see games where the defending team is in control even though they have very little possession.

    I remember the Friday night win against Derby a few years back. They had probably 70% of the ball, but much of it was passes between midfielders from one side of the pitch to another 30+ yards from goal. No threat. We were 1-0 up and in control. They failed to get a shot on target all night.

    It only takes a second to score a goal.

    Many a time some other sod has spent hours chatting up some lass for most the night, only for us to bump into her for 5min on the way to the bog and give her a seeing too.

    It's like hearing "well I bought her dinner & took her to the pics". Means fuck all.

    Can't work out if I prefer our first goal on Saturday or Chris Cohen's goal vs West Brom when beat them 3-1 away.

    Anyone want to call it? A reminder if you need it of the Cohen goal is here at 3mins and 35 seconds in: http://videos.sapo.pt/s01CBYR9U2h93du1eLWw

    The context of that one elevates it to be great.

    But from a footballing point of view I am not sure we have scored a better team goal for decades than the one vs Fulham?

    I loved the Cohen goal, it was a belter.

    But for me, the team-goal against Fulham just - just - edges it.

    Both were superb strikes though.

    It's hard to choose between them in terms of quality. I'll go with Cohen's simply because it put the seal on the best away performance I've seen in the ten years since the return to the Championship.

    I just wish we'd taken that attacking intent away from home into the rest of the season. If I remember rightly, we were stodgy away from the CG for the rest of the campaign, knicking a point here and there but never putting enough pressure on WBA. We were always about 6 points away.

    We went top for one night until Newcastle played. That was as high as we went. There were a lot of games called off due to the weather that season but we seemed to avoid it so we were always ahead on games played but unfortunately we couldnít capitalise on that and yes you are right we just sat in 3rd almost the whole season through

    Cohens is the better finish, Grabbans is the better team goal. On balance id say Cohens edges it marginally overall.

    Scored a similar one against Ipswich last year? All 11 players touched the ball before Grabban again knocks it in at the back stick.
