Fulham - Murphy Talks Up City Game

Fulham - Murphy Talks Up City Game

Earlier this week I wrote a short piece about getting excited about the forthcoming fixture with Manchester City.

I suggested it had all the potential to be a classic game. Now as the game draws ever closer, our club captain, Danny Murphy has come out and spoken about the fixture having the potential to be a great entertainment feast, remarking,

'At times they play some wonderful football and are a joy to watch, but of course, with such individual flair and characters in their team they can be susceptible on the break.'

'So we have to be trying to attack them and make sure that we have a good go at them, because I think their attacking is probably their strength - you can see that by their goals for tally."

'So we need to try and go out and win the match - we certainly won't be going into it cautiously."

'Like every team in the Premier League they've got players that can hurt you and players who, on their day, can win matches, so it will be a good game."

'They play football the right way, they don't whack it, they knock it about, so I think the fans will be in for a really good game.'


Great minds think alike!

Is this the perfect passing game for Murphy to shine in?
