This weekend, the FA Cup takes centre-stage, a competition that could have given the support something to cheer about if we hadn’t of been the victims of a FA Cup shock.

I guess we’ll never know how we might have fared in our relegation fight if we’d have been given a confidence boost by a FA Cup run.

Instead, whilst the right teams still left in the competition continue to dream about a trip to Wembley, we have to contend with the harsh truth that we need a miracle to retain our Premier League place for next season.

On Sunday, Fulham welcome Liverpool to Craven Cottage, for a Premier League fixture. It is a game that our visitors will be looking to win to continue their pursuit of the Premier League crown.

For Fulham it is a chance, albeit slim I’d suggest, to make one last effort to produce the proverbial miracle and escape relegation by closing that 13-point gap between safety and us with just 8 games to go.

I’m probably not alone in believing we’re clutching at straws but if that is the case then perhaps a better hope would be for the side, now managed by Scott Parker, to produce the kind of performance that will give us hope next season as we contemplate a return to the Championship.

Perhaps, through the power of positive thinking, we can engineer a 1-0 win with the former Liverpool player, Ryan Babel, scoring the winner.

Is it too much to hope for?
