It was definitely not a classic, but Fulham's win against Sheffield United was much needed, taking us within a single win from safety. In this episode, we look back at all the talking points from our narrow win against the Blades.
Spring's in sight and so is 17th spot in the standings. What a difference a week makes, eh? Fulham, before our trip to Goodison Park, were frozen out of survival conversations as mid-February's stormy snap rudely announced itself and as the climate slowly warmed heading into Saturday evening's crunch clash with Sheffield United, brighter skies were and are indeed imminent for the Whites. We'll let the sunshine in with a 1-0 dub, because we're now only three points behind Newcastle United and who would've though that?
Fulham hadn’t won a single meeting against Burnley at Turf Moor since 1951, which is a madness, and that archaic record still stands today after Scott Parker’s Whites held Sean Dyche’s Clarets to a rather boring 1-1 draw. We’ll briefly address the obvious observations of the game: we weren’t good enough, not by a long chalk, and we were clearly knackered following Sunday’s exploits. Nothing drastic, we just weren’t 100% and that’s fine by me if we bounce back immediately.
