Beating your local rivals Brentford in the first ever Premier League meeting between the two sides… it doesn’t get much better than this! Fulham were inspired from the moment we kicked off, with Bobby Decordova-Reid taking only 50 seconds to take the lead. A goal from new cult hero João Palhinha put us 2-0 up, before a nervy period saw Brentford come back to make it 2-2. After Ivan Toney mocked our talisman Alexander Mitrovic’s celebration… the rest will go down in Fulham’s Premier League folklore. 90th minute. Mitro header. Bad luck Brentford. Thanks for coming. Fulham are now sitting pretty in 7th place, undefeated, with 5 points on the board. Saturday’s win turning our solid start into an exceptional start.
We discuss how Marco Silva’s side have adapted to the Premier League, perhaps learning from our mistakes of yesteryear. We also chat about impressive debuts for Jay Stansfield and Bernd Leno and take a look at our new right back conundrum.
In part two we answer your questions, and then in part three we look ahead to a very fun little Carabao Cup draw away to Crawley Town.
Hosted by George Cooper with guests Isabelle Barker, Dom Betts, and Dan Cooke.
