It’s another Monday morning in the office and it’s that familiar scenario whereby the working week has started after yet another defeat suffered by Fulham.
However, if I were to be brutally honest, I expected to come into work today after a defeat, our woeful season never served to offer hope that Fulham could get a result against a Manchester City side who are on course to win an unprecedented quadruple.
Unfortunately, those who perhaps thought Fulham could get something from the game had to, once again, watch the side go behind to an early goal, a striker they were never to recover from.
In fact, despite all our bluster, Fulham didn’t manage to get a shot on target in the whole game, indicative of just how far we are below the top teams in the division, let alone those who we hoped to climb above, at one stage of the season, to survive.
The defeat leaves Fulham staring through the relegation trap-door, their Premier League future all but decided, with the club 16 points adrift of safety but with a maximum of 18 points available from the six games left.
Survival really would be a miracle.
As the summer months approach, Championship football awaits us, I’d like to say our one-season flirtation with Premier League football was enjoyable, but it hasn’t been has it?
