craven cottage Fulham vs Queens Park Rangers, Premier League Gameweek 31: Open Thread

Stadium: Craven Cottage
Kick-off time: 3pm ET/8pm UK time
US TV: Live on ESPN Deportes and ESPN3.com

Fulham starting XI: Schwarzer; Riether, Senderos, Hangeland (c), Riise; Dejagah, Sidwell, Karagounis, Duff; Ruiz, Berbatov

QPR starting XI: Cesar; Bosingwa, Samba, Hill, Traore; Townsend, Jenas, Mbia, Taarabt; Remy, Zamora

With eight matches to go in the Premier League this season, Queens Park Rangers will desperately need to get all three points today to have any hope of staying in the league next season. The gap between Harry Redknapp’s side and safety has widened to 7 points with Wigan and Southampton getting vital wins at the weekend. A loss today for the R’s and it’ll be a huge blow to their confidence.

Fulham, meanwhile, will want a win to guarantee safety in the Premier League. Sitting in tenth position in the league, the Cottagers are still just six points above the relegation zone.

Follow along with the conversations about the match in the comments section below.

  1. The Gaffer says:

    Clint Hill should have been red carded for that reckless challenge.

    Cheers,
    The Gaffer

  2. Andrew Beck says:

    I’m not sure that Christopher Samba signing looks so good anymore.

  3. kyle says:

    QPR are toast if they don’t get at least a draw. Doesn’t look good so far.

  4. The Gaffer says:

    Karma bites Clint Hill in the butt for that reckless tackle earlier in the first half.

    Cheers,
    The Gaffer

  5. kyle says:

    The goal just before the half gives QPR something to play for in the second half as they now have a 2 goal deficit to erase instead of 3.

  6. jtm371 says:

    QPR Reading and Sunderland will go down.it only took 32 weeks to see who was going down.

  7. kyle says:

    Good comeback by QPR but not enough. Their first half performance sealed their fate.

    Cannot see QPR avoid relegation now. Reading will probably join them. There’s going to be a scramble till the end to see who joins them.

    • Guy says:

      I agree. As a Stoke fan I am none too confident we are not in the discussion. Sunderland may have to “save” us.
