Fulham home. What was the score? Drew 2-2
I can't take it anymore, with that luck we are destined to go down and that lino needs shooting if we get relegated by 2 points, that was truly a dreadful error on his part and judging by his face at the end he knew it too. I just hope he can sleep tonight because I for one am in for another restless night.
Nonetheless it was a passionate performance with Pardew getting more out of them in 2 days than Reed did in 6 weeks. Players who hadn't giving a darn in recent games were suddenly up for it and the crowd were magnificent in their backing.
It was a tragedy that we didn't get the 3 points because 1 is not enough but when you are down terrible bad luck and dreadful refereeing becomes just another obstacle. We have a lot of catching up to do but with some heart, plenty of desire, Darren Bent back taking chances and a couple of new faces, Fulham showed that teams in the bottom half of the table are all beatable. There's some life left in us yet.Steven Pressley was an onlooker
and his kind of leadership and drive is much needed at the heart of defence. Sounds like he's having a medical and hopefully Pardew can make him our first January signing as soon as.
Finally we looked like a proper club tonight and I would think Pardew has learned a lot about his players. As the new manager said the tingle was back in the tummy. More drugs please nurse we have a long way to go.Opinions of those that were there: cafc.co.uk

.Super Al: "I'm disgusted to be honest. Mistakes happen, I thought we were jittery because we haven't won for a while, but you expect the officials to be calm - but he's made a really bad call there. I asked why he gave it and he said it's for handball. We were two minutes away from ecstasy and now we feel deflated. I don't know where the officials got four minutes from either - I'll go and see the referee in a minute and have a friendly chat!"
