Fulham - What! No Lucky Charms or Superstitions?

Over the last week I`ve thought about little else than our date with destiny.

I`ve toyed with going through the same old superstitious routines I used to go through as a youngster, I`ve thought about gathering up all those lucky charms that are meant to edge luck in your favour, but to no avail.

Whilst they might well have worked on the odd occasion, more than often not putting my left sock on before my right sock on and touching the lucky rabbit`s foot saw us suffer disappointment after disappointment.

Therefore, come Sunday morning there`ll be no lucky pants put on, no four-leafed clover plucked from the lawn, there`ll be no reading a certain newspaper before another, there`ll be no arranging of the food on my breakfast plate in a strict pattern, there`ll be no walking around the garden with my left eye closed and my finger in my mouth, instead I`m going to leave the result in the laps of the god`s!

After all if it`s good enough for Roy Hodgson, who came up with the following one-liner,

"We`ve been dead and buried. It`s a tough task but we have to do our best and hope the football god`s smile on us."

Then it is good enough for me!

To be fair, think you'll only need a point, can't see us or b'ham winning. Fair play to you tho, if/when we go down I hope you lot stay up rather than b'ham.

I'm sure taht we'll need to win to be safe from you, youve not scored in 6 games but come on youve got derby!
Backslash2010
Yeah, thats what everyone keeps saying but I'm not so confident!! You lot hadn't won away for 30+ games when we played you and you beat us convincingly!!
uroyals
don't knock faith - it might be your only hope!
merlin
I've been feeling the same about the Derby game! I think you might struggle too! Derby have actually been scoring! I hoped you'd stay up, specially as Bolton don't deserve to stay up!
