Good afternoon Geordies and welcome to our regular “match banter” feature for today’s away visit to Craven Cottage, the home of “Cottagers” of Fulham.

As well as seeing the game, the faithful who will be making the trip down to London today will also be able to visit the wonderful monument to the “King of Pop” at Craven Cottage, which is in my honest opinion is worth the trip alone.

I shall be putting up the official teamsheets for the game below when they are available. (more…)

Indeed, Mark Hughes’s side have won their previous three matches at home, not least a rampant 4-0 victory in a fourth round FA tie against Tottenham in their last game. (more…)
