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

Fulham 0 Sunderland 0

Another draw did little to lift the fears of becoming involved in a relegation battle this afternoon, even if Fulham had far more attempts on goal than their opponents, Sunderland.

Mark Hughes was able to call upon the services of Carlos Salcido again after the Mexican had recovered from an ankle injury but there was still no room in the starting eleven for Andrew Johnson.

The fare served up in the opening exchanges was pretty average to say the least although Dempsey did light up proceedings with a thirty yard volley that test Mignolet in the Sunderland goal.

The visitors had to cope with an early injury with Ferdinand limping off to be replaced with Al-Muhammadi.

Thankfully, after halftime, the game livened up a bit. Sunderland brought on Gyan to bolster their attack but it was Fulham that finally started to create chances.

The first saw Salcido deliver a teasing cross that just evaded Dempsey and the Sunderland keeper before Bardsley had to head clear form under his own bar after Etuhu had looped a header towards goal.

As the action switched form end to end, Andrew Johnson, on for a half time substitute in place of Kamara, forced a good save form the keeper before Sunderland broke only for Gyan to fail to find Bent in space.

But it was looking like one of those afternoons and although Fulham threatened, they couldn`t break through the Sunderland rearguard, so it`s off to Anfield next weekend for an encounter with our former governor, Roy Hodgson.

More of the same. Did we expect anything more. We played well but lack that little bit of quality at forward. If you can stay organized at the back, you can stop us. Can't win if you can't score. More dropped points at Anfield next, I'm afraid.
That was a must win. I'm beginning to question whether mark Hughes was the right choice.

I am not too sure what mark is up to. He must have a plan? is it that players we have cannot deliver? But there again look at birmingham, the toffees and villa!
I'm not quite panicked yet, but we must get at least 4 points from the remaining December fixtures. A point from either Liverpool or Stoke (away) and an absolute must have three points from West Ham (home). 20 points in 20 matches is not good, but it would a manageable deficit.

is AJ not fit yet? he looked an improvement over kamara... his time at fulham should have ended a bit ago... every game, it just is a wonder as to where the goals will come from... and often they never arrive...
Our collection of forwards (at the moment) are not capable of making their own space. We need the midfield to provide more service if there is any hope of AJ or Kamara scoring. Not sure about Dembele yet. He can't hold up play like Zamora, but the midfield has been so poor in support that it's hard to say what he's capable of if adequate service is provided.
they seem to have lost the plot

The clubs position wouldn't worry me so much if it wasn't for the poor, disorganised performances I'm seeing at the Cottage. Pretty much the same team as Hodgson yet we lack shape, discipline and we're not able to buy a goal. I'm worried!
