Prior to kick-off, Sabri Lamouchi's Nottingham Forest hadn't lost after returning to Championship action and Scott Parker's Fulham were slowly picking up the pace, having claimed victories in their previous two meetings. 4th vs 5th, a contest between two differing strategic minds, we were gearing up for a cagey, heedful confrontation on Tuesday afternoon and it delivered precisely that.

I've been waiting eagerly to return to Wordpress for an eternity and though we lost in such a pathetic manner, it's a genuine pleasure to get the brain ticking and the keys clicking once again! After a three month absence, football has finally returned to our lives (albeit via a TV screen) and there's no better way to kick off, or resume, the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign with a West London Derby.
