Five Thoughts: Fulham 0-3 Aston Villa

We are three games into our instant return to the Premier League and we have already been resigned to relegation by every living creature known to mankind. Dire, diabolical, Fulham's fragile, frigid showing on Monday evening was up there with the worst we've seen for quite some time and I'm not even angry, I'm totally embarrassed. In 5 weeks, cloud nine has soured into a reality riddled with undignified mortification.

Fulham, Jaguars or Wrestling. Time to pick.

3 games, 3 defeats, 10 goals conceded, the latter of which was a humiliating, pants-down display for the whole world to chew over live on Sky's Monday Night Football. As Premier League starts go, it's pretty horrendous.

Five Thoughts: Leeds United 4-3 Fulham

Well, that wasn't boring, was it? Frustrating, yes, although a 4-3 loss against Marcelo Bielsa's free-flowing Leeds United, away from home, sounds a lot nicer than a 4-1 drubbing. Sure, we still lost, but the Lilywhites didn't have it all their own way and for the final half an hour or so, their bucket-sitting mastermind was bricking it.

Transfer Rumour Round-Up: Summer 2020 – Part 5

This edition may be a scaled down version of the four that have already been and gone, but there's genuine brawn and substance within this particular helping. Forget strikers, wing-backs and 'keepers (Jack Butland was deliberately left out because, meh), central defenders are the main focal point and we couldn't be happier, even if that cryptic Gerard Pique fabrication miraculously became a reality.

Five Thoughts: Fulham 0-3 Arsenal

Let's be honest with one another, we sort of saw this result coming, didn't we? It's completely befitting that our automatic return to the Premier League plated up a cold opening day defeat at the merciless ladle of Mikel Arteta's resurgent Arsenal so, if you have shed a few premature tears, dry 'em or your Saturday night curry'll be ruined.
