That’s what I’m saying.
The depth is lacking and Ange is steadfast in playing his style. It opens up for other teams to take advantage.
Just hope Ange can buy a few players.

Is Richarlison definitely not coming back?
Yeah but without any defensive players surely playing defensive would look even worse.

Charlo had groin surgery so you'd think a month to 6 weeks from the date he's back. So January.

Ill take the 3 points as a Fulham fan and run with it.

Still edgy about survival this year so every win is vital.
Wolves will be back on top of the "apology table" this week. Officials confirm to O'Neil Vinicus head contact on Kilman should have been a red, first Fulham pen shouldn't have been given, Ream should have been sent off.

5 games they have apologies for now, Wolves called them out after the 3rd game against Newcastle and since then they got dudded badly against SHU and now been really badly ****ed over against Fulham.
Hard for Wolves fans not to take this personally and see this as deliberate from PGMOL.
While they weren't guaranteed points in those 5 matches, thats 9 points potentially dropped. That has them in 6th and pushing Europe, not sitting in 12th.

For Fulham, with how bad the bottom 3 are and Everton being slapped with the deduction, this might be one of those seasons where a low points total will still keep you safe. The lowest amount of points that avoided relegation was WBA with 34 in 04/05, but 37 points has been the safe spot for like 16 or so of the last 20 odd seasons.
And Fulham are 22 points off that. Unless they have an injury crisis they should get wins against the s**t teams and enough draws to be safe.

Honestly I am glad O'Neil is saying something.
I don't believe refs cost teams relegation/promotion over a season, or even an individual result necessarily, but can be hugely consequential in games like this.

As a non big 4/6 fan, it's a ******* joke how poor VAR can be.
Our VAR rip-off vs City probably didn't cost us points, but probably a couple of goals in GD which can always be important.
For Wolves this game, I feel Penalty #1 was absolutely not a pen; Penalty #2 should have been a penalty (but I feel that if we were against Arsenal/City it wouldn't have been paid).

To be honest that tackle by Cash looks fairly innocuous.
Been a few bad injuries this season where they didn't look that bad then players are out for 3/6/9 months.

Players are getting run into the ground and there are too many matches during the season. Not sure how this gets fixed because UEFA, FIFA etc all have their fingers in their ears while they count their money.

And clubs still go on lengthy pre season tours , and play friendlies to clog up the fixture list even more.
