Be interesting to hear the reports. The stats actually look very even maybe just unlucky 😬
Not at any point was we in this match Fulham dominated from start to finish.

Kion Etete done all he could with what little service he had,for a big lad he has a bit of pace when he gets going and he seems to have a good touch but he was getting frustrated because he does not know how we play and he was wanting the ball to come to him a lot faster and that is something that will never happen with our style of play and he will have to adapt to it.

As you would expect It was a very disjointed team performance with players like Binks,White,Cirkin struggling to bond with the new intake of players.

Not one player stood out yesterday but if you was to twist my arm I would say Cirkin was our best player for us he did defend well but his final ball going forward was not very good.

Hopefully we can find a few loans for some of the U-23s. Surely Georgiou, Tracey, Sterling, Roles, Shashoua and Edwards could all do with a move. Really hope Roles and Shashoua come back and find a place next season but feel they both need time to develop.

Do we have any news on any of these players?

What would you put it down to ? As some of the players on display are very highly regarded. Just bonding ? But I guess be same for Fulham. When I saw team sheet I expected big things.

Look it is a new season with a new team and it will take a bit of time for some of the players to settle down.

Fulham away Spurs always get a very hard game and I would never go expecting a win and I do think this years u18s will be doing very well to match what the u18s did last year,I think this years u18s will lose more games than they did last year and our u23s should be better this year.

I thought that Harvey White would join the U23 team after his games for the first team. Can somebody explain why he was sendt to the U18 team instead?

u18s and u23s are quite fluid so wouldn't read anything into it, it's just a way of making sure everyone gets a game.

Sorry to do this, but I absolutely fucking hate the 'for a big lad' cliche. It's usually good touch or good control for a big lad. It's complete bollocks. It doesn't matter what size you are, you either have ability or you don't. Hoddle wasn't exactly a fucking midget, nor was Zidane. Their touch and control weren't bad.

there's typically a strong correlation between size and technical ability though, not just in football but in most sports and activities that require some form of coordination so i don't think it's a just a cliché. obviously there are exceptions to that rule but generally it holds true.

Sorry to do what you are entitled to have an opinion.

I’m not sure about the size to touch correlation. I just think some bigger players make it purely on size and power. Let’s be honest Sissoko would be nothing without those attributes. There’s plenty of CB around that have both. I just think the big lads with poor touch basically just made cause they are big lads.

Domestic loan clubs mentioned anywhere? Remember us being touted as looking at Bury to send out some youngsters? Wouldn't mind a few at Lincoln City either. Kenny Jackett's at Portsmouth too, along with Luke McGee and Anton Walkes so that might work?

Just see it as such a waste as they sit in the U-23s, half of whom have played competitively elsewhere already.
