Great game, i watched it on sky...
Fulham came out of the traps fast and it took ten mins for us to get a hold of the game. But once we did that we dominated the rest of the first half.
We scored 2 fantastic goals and both could be contender for goal of the month. Anton Ferdinand scored such a goal, he most prob won't score like that
again in his whole career, it was just one of them special ones. The ball went into the Fulham box and the keeper made a half clearance to the edge of
the box. Harewood got up well and it glanced off his head. Ferdinand had his back to the goal on the edge of the area, he spun and hit one of the
sweetest volleys i have seen by a defender in along time.
The Benyoun picked up the ball in the box and shuffled past a defender and jinxed one way and then the next, the keeper came out and he hit the
deftest chip straight over the top of him.
Absolute magical goal....
But when we came out the second half, i don't know what happened but we fell apart for awhile. But we came on strong again towards the end and Zamora
was unlucky with a header that hit the post.. We did ride our luck a bit in that second half, fulham scored a good goal and they had quite a few
chances but failed to put them away. Carroll pulled off some great saves and kept us in it.
It was Repkas last game and what a way to send him off, he was in tears at the end as he walked around the pitch applauding the fans....
