Jonathon Terrance with his first goal!

Impressive pressure so far. Fulham their own worst enemies.

Elmohamady is shit.

Adomah turning out to be a bit of a revelation on the left wing, going to be hard for Green to get back into the team.

By far the better team, it's heartening to think Fulham fans must look at their team and be thinking the kind of things we have about ours.

Whelan needs shooting. For me, their goal weighs heavily on his shoulders, what an absolute wrongcock giving away a free-kick on the edge of the box. A shit player with no excuses.

Wrong-cock! Hahahahahaha.

I can't fathom Bananason being on the pitch. We were down to ten men. Pointless substitution.

But aside from a nervy last few minutes, a good win. Fantastic save from Johnstone and an epic performance from Snodgrass.

I missed the winner as AVTV seemed to have gone down.

Right...who's next?

I'd love to see Lyden replace Whelan permanently.
3 pts and in playoff position so have to be happy with that.
Let's hope the scum get beat at Millwall.
Let's hope we do the scum next week.

Couldn't be arsed with ruining another weekend with Steve Bruce football.

Let me guess. We played shit. We were effective. Got pressured hard and essentially backs to the wall from the point of 2-1. Whelan was shit. Lansbury was shit. Elmo was shit. Or Steve Bruce's signings were shit.

Can't really complain about that, good win against a decent side, which I think makes it something like five wins out of the last six league games, and only one defeat in the last ten.

Just a pity Wolves, Cardiff and Sheffield United keep winning. Still we're in the play-off positions for the first time since relegation, so hopefully we can kick on from here and make an assault on the top two.

I could make a couple of complaints but a decent 3 points and into the top 6 so I won't. Happy with that

I question how long these teams can keep winning tbh. Wolves might stick it out but even today they were second best apparently and managed to nick it again. Cardiff and Sheff Utd could be building up ahead of steam like Huddersfield and Reading did last year but I'm just not sure they've got the stamina, or the ability, to keep this form up with other sides breathing down their necks. IF we managed to win the next two then I think we'll be right in there.

After a goalless loss a win is particularly important, regardless of the performance, so I'm extremely relieved. All bodes well in terms of building momentum - as long as Plan A holds up.

Agree with this, three points against a decent side who contrived in their own downfall but I ain't complaining, long may it continue! Scarf Waving

We played well and were effective, a lot more about us than last week. We were under pressure at times but applied more on them for much of the game. It was a little messy for the last 5mins but Fulham have a reputation this season for making something out of nothing during that period and we just looked like we didn't want to let anything in whatever happened.

Whelan was shit yes, Lansbury didn't play and Elmo repeatedly hoofed the ball up the right.

Overall, you probably missed a pretty good peformance.

And finally, I strongly believe all of the above happened in spite of Bruce, not because of him.

You might've missed all the positive comments I put so here they are again (I've struck out the one negative):

Surprised to see that Wolves have more points now than Newcastle or any other team did at this point last season. Still, I think they'll hit a rough patch at some stage and then we'll see how they cope. I thought Cardiff would have faltered by now but they're still up there, no doubt they've benefited from our poor start, if we can keep up our current form then we might catch them, we've got a tough three games coming up though.

Apparently Bruce has said we're going to try and 'break the bank' for Onomah, he's had a few iffy games, but all in all, I think he's an excellent player. Think we might need to get promoted before we have a chance though.

We've a few players that stand out and he's one (opposite to Whelan who was mentioned that I genuinely didn't know was playing).

But if Bruce has really said anything along the lines of "breaking the bank" when it involves Daniel Levy then there is nothing in the English language to describe his fuckwittery.

Yeah Wolves are a massive ONE POINT better off then Toon were this time last season as seen HERE Very Happy . I think that's more to do with Toon's shocking start (lost first two games) than anything else tbh. What's interesting when you look at that table though was Norwich were absolutely flying at the early stage of the season and looked every bit as good as Newcastle imo. But then they went to Toon and lost a match they were well up in and they just fell off the rails. Look how far back Leeds, Reading and Fulham were from top spot too? That's why all the big talk those Wolves fans are talking is simply futile right now. I will not believe the hype until they prove it over the winter months.

Anyway as for Bruce. Well, I can't fault him tbh. He learned from last week's mistake because I always believed that playing 442 made Wolves look better than they actually are. We went back to 433 today and look what happened? Mentally, being in that top five should be a great thing for the lads because they can see that their hard work is paying off. Last season when we made that late run it just seemed like we were swimming in the middle of an ocean with no island in sight. But we can see one now, and the key is to keep piling on the pressure until someone falters. All these teams above us will have to come to VP at some stage and then we will see what they are all about.

I have been happy with Onomah so far this season but yesterday was the 1st game when I genuinely thought he grabbed attention. Work rate, hustle, passing etc. Him and Adomah were on fire, Hourihan had a good game too

Onomah has always had the class imo but being in and out of the side hasn't helped the lad. Now hopefully he will get a good run of games and I have no doubt he'll prove his worth.

He's the sort of players we should be buying, but I'd rather leave that judgement call to our next manager.

Considering how shite Bruce has been in the transfer market there's no reason to give him anymore cash. Whelan shite, Hogan shite, Elmo shite.
