  • We should have won it though. But I am happy with the result, 1 – 1 with an on form Portsmouth, that’s not bad is it.

  • What do you mean we should have won it. Bl00dy lucky we didn’t stuff you out of sight. The most one sided draw we’ve had at FP in years. Stupid name to go with your stupid comment.

  • Storagematt, you obviously did not read the rules when you signed up for Vital football, we do not allow personal attacks on Vital Fulham, you are entitled to disagree as much as anyone can have an opinion but please keep your personal attacks to other sites where they will welcome it. thankyou.

  • WW&S/ marshinrover….yep you are right fulham should have won it !!! after all your’s was the team that had 20 corners & 19 shots, hit the post twice and the bar once, and our keeper was named player of the match. and it was our manager screaming for a foul on the keeper that clearly never was. Oh yes you deserved an emphatic victory, you are the best we have ever seen down here. Sorry Cravens i couldnt resist that, but your point is accepted and you are always welcome at our site.
