'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fulham 0 Everton 0

An entertaining, but goal less affair; at Craven Cottage saw Fulham maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

But, on reflection, it has to be said that it was the away side (in my opinion) Everton that had the better of the game although the result left them stranded at the foot of the Premier League table.

Having seen Moussa Dembele join Bobby Zamora on the injured list, Mark Hughes had little option other than to field an eleven that was bereft of a natural striker. However, it was good to see Diomansy Kamara on the bench having recovered from his injury.

The game started well with it being an open end-to-end affair. Dempsey thought he had a decent appeal for a penalty but the World Cup Final referee, Howard Webb, thought otherwise before Davies saw a shot clear the bar.

Everton also though they deserved a first half penalty when Cahill thought he`d been fouled after Baines had provided the assist, thankfully, Howard Webb has spotted the foul committed by Cahill himself.

Mark Schwarzer, the villain of the peace last week at Ewood Park, pulled off a decent save to deny Pienaar after a good move involving Fellaini and Yakubu. But highlights really were Spartan in a first half where Everton had the greater share of possession.

In fact the best chance of the half for Fulham came close to half time when Salcido provided a decent ball into the danger area for Etuhu to head but his effort was straight at Howard, the Everton keeper.

The second half started in much the similar fashion although Fulham should have taken the lead when Howard saved from Dempsey but Duff couldn`t put the rebound into the net.

Again it was Everton that looked the likeliest to score with Coleman causing problems for the Fulham defence with his darting runs. Arteta fired a saw over whilst Schwarzer pulled another save out of the top drawer from Yakubu.

With Eddie Johnson on for Gera, the American had a good chance to open the scoring but failed to direct Duff`s cross towards goal and with time running out Fulham were grateful to Schwarzer when he once again showed his class by saving from Yakubu.

Not the greatest of games but we`re still unbeaten, in the Premier League!

A far from entertaining game. Everton looked the better team. It was hard to see where a goal from us would come from- which gives me concerns long term with Bobby out.

Good point under the circumstances. Still undefeated, at least.

dispite what mark says we do need more fire power up front will be nice ti have aj back but would also be nice to see murphy davis and duff get more goles after all everton done it last year with not to maney strikers
truth sayer ffc
i think considering our lack of strikers it was a good result. AJ will be back, Kamara was looking good, Eddie Johnson needs more game time to make an impact and i think he should have started with dempsey pushing back to midfield
jackbarendse
