I hate to say this, but Fulham is becoming full. Too full if you ask me. Full of things that are bad. Really bad. Ocean sized bad. It's bigly bad what things Fulham is full of. Fulham want to be in the big league bigly. But they are so full, they need to get rid of the things they are full of. That's why I am issuing an executive order to get rid of Fulham and to Make Things Great Again!

First game of the season for me, quite nervous after the loss to Charlton. Admittedly they lost on opening day but they've got a very talented midfield and forward line.

After I got nothing from the first day, I am going with a draw and that is being optimistic :D

I saw a rumour Harison Reed was interesting Fulham. That is one player i would have liked to have seen at Rovers again. I would have liked to have seen a couple of more defenders signed by Rovers. If Rovers get beat in this game it no doubt will be down to poor defending again. I like Tony Mowbray as Rovers manager but we have needed to strenghen in defence since last January and we haven't. I hope it doesn't cost him hs job...

Agree re Harrison Reed - one of Rovers' best performers last season.

After Fulham received £15 million for sosseluengo or whatever he's called there was no way Rovers were going to win the pissing competition for Harrison Reed.
How times have changed.
Surprised that we've released two centre halves - Magloire and Mulgrew - Mowbray must be very confident about Buckley and Grayson.

Cunningham in, Mulgrew Out. I think we got the better end of that loaner deal. Mulgrew wasn’t in future plans, anyway. Rovers getting younger (& better, imo). Not sure if “better” translates into “good”, though.

Fulham spent way too much for what they got last year, & spent more in the offseason. Not good enough for PL, but they will be a crack Championship outfit. My expectations for tomorrow is 1-1, up to about 90+2. Then 2-1.

It's hard to guess a starting lineup, but my guess is

Walton
Nyambe-Adarabioyo-Lenihan-Cunningham
Johnson-Travis
Armstrong-Dack-Downing
Gallagher

Then bringing on Brereton, Chapman, and Graham as subs later on.

Mowbray rarely brings on his new talent from the first whistle, so I'd go with Bell to start with Cunningham later. I also think Danny might get the call over Gallagher and Nyambe/Bennet is anyone's guess.
One thing is certain - with Reed and Cairney, Fulham have an excellent midfield, but there again, Travis and Johnson are pretty good.

No Lenihan or Nyambe today apparently. Cunningham and Tosin are available.

I think it's desperately disappointing that now Lenihan is injured, Platt, Grayson and Buckley aren't considered as replacements
. In other words, Wiiliams is the best we've got.
Lenihan as we know is injury prone, yet the centre half problem has not been resolved. Arguably with the disappearance of Mulgrew, it's actually got worse.
