Fulham 1-0 Stoke City
I bet Sky loved having the live rights to this feast of mediocrity… Fulham deserved to win and as for us we really need to change something. Come the summer Tony Pulis should perhaps go or get a more assertive assistant manager a la Peter Reid. The current incumbent Dave Kemp is only really remembered for bringing us Diego Arismendi, who disappeared as quietly as he came. Still newboy Brek Shea got a chance as Etherington went off injured early on. Oh and Michael Owen was injured again, a real mystery of a signing as he’s hardly played and there is talk we are looking at the possibility of offering him another year!
Something isn’t right at Stoke at the moment as certain players aren’t firing on all six; we have Jermaine Pennant kicking his heels seemingly never to play for us again; players all playing in positions they are not used too, although to be fair that is a Pulis tradition!
Matthew Brunt is on loan at Southend Utd and can look forward to a Wembley trip with them, whilst Mama Sidibe has joined Tranmere on loan.
West Ham at home and lose this one & the fans could really turn on Pulis & co.
