    I'm sure many Fulham fans are great people.

    But after watching the match replay on ifollow, I'd question the mentality of whoever started a thread titled 'How awful were Forest?' after we stunned them with a goal of the season contender then kept them at arm's length for most of the rest.

    On another day we'd have won 3-0 and the whine would be even sourer.

    They played a lot of decent football, kept possession well, without ever pulling us out of position or threatening to hurt us.

    Our keeper - on his league debut - made a couple of good saves second half. They did pull one back inside the last 10 minutes, then were given 8 minutes stoppage time but did nothing. So overall we're entitled to say they were awful, despite all their possession.

    That would have been a silly thing to do Harv, especially if you did so using Chinese Kung Fu moves.

    Or as Chung Chang said after he did it, "Solly, I-so-sceles"

    Not if you view it from a different angle.

    It only takes a second to score a goal.

    It might work if you approach it from the right angle.

    No matter how well Forest play there's always someone who has a negative view. Fulham had a lot of possession and played some decent football. BUT they came up against a very decent & hardworking Forest side, who 3 chances and took 2 of them. Jus=t because we played well it doesn't mean the opposition were shit.

    Birmingham awful. Fulham awful. Derby awful.

    Maybe the reason we keep facing awful teams has something to do with how the Reds are playing.

    We seem to be developing a knack of demoralising teams by squeezing the life out of them.

    Aye. We've become so resiliant of late it's been brilliant. As Rav eludes to earlier, these aren't noddy sides either. Yeah Derby may have been understrengthed, but with 19m worth of talent not in the starting lineup so were we.

    We at last seem to have developed a mentailty that whatever happens we just keep digging in & pushing forward.

    Long may it continue
