Fulham vs Sunderland, Gameweek 12: Open Thread

fulham sunderland Fulham vs Sunderland, Gameweek 12: Open Thread

If you have any small children or pets at home, today is probably a good day to move them away from the television set. What they are about to see today could be damaging to their eyes.

I kid, of course. Sunderland’s lack of goalscoring could make them a painful side to watch today, but the three worthy things about this match are (1) they’re playing Fulham, who know how to score goals, (2) the match is at the quaint Craven Cottage ground, and (3)¬†Sunderland is playing away from the Stadium of Light, so perhaps the team will feel less pressure on their backs.

Let’s hope it’s a better match than what it is on paper.

Before, during or after today’s match, post your rants, raves, questions or observations in the comments section below.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

    I know I am a sicko because of the fact that I arranged my schedule this morning so as to be able to watch the Sunderland-Fulham match.

  2. John says:

    Fulham will scores goals if the motivated Berbatov shows up today.

    you know you will have to go mtn biking from now on when MUFC plays after your post yesterday.your boys are back on top congrats.

      Ha ha thanks. I just cannot stand watching them play against a lower-table club. They are going to win 99% of the time so if you just absent yourself from the info flow you might be pleasantly shocked later. But usually you can just say “well that’s what United does. They win.”

      I expect United to be up on points six weeks from now. Tough league stretch coming for City. But long term it should be a good race.

    okay so we edit the 3/1 score line.seems harsh red card no intent to injure.

  5. Guy says:


    I’m not sure where the game is going. Pretty soon you won’t be able to tackle at all.

  6. Marc L says:

    That red did not seem to be warranted at all. Plus, Hangeland is about the last guy you’d expect to be trying to injure someone. Classy guy, team captain. National team captain, for that matter.
