Let's just say I am happy that football is back. Fulham played their first friendly match at Brentford today. Fulham won the match 5 - 0. The goals were scored by Chris Baird (14th min.), David Elm (24th min.), Damien Duff (29th min.), Eddie Johnson (49th min.), and Simon Davies (67th min.).
For regular season matches I will have a breakdown the game. Since I did not see this game I will just mention who started the game and who came in as substitutes. Also, the players who participated in the World Cup are not back yet from their break.
Starters: David Stockdale, Fredrik Stoor, Brede Hangeland, Stephen Kelly, Paul Konchesky, Damien Duff, Jonathan Greening, Chris Baird, Bjorn Helge Riise, Eddie Johnson, and David Elm.
Substitutes: Neil Etheridge, Cristian Marquez, Aaron Hughes, Alex Smith, Simon Davies, Courtney Harris, Keanu Marsh-Brown, Matt Saunders, Marcello Trotta, and Zoltan Gera.
Based on the tweets I was recieving from fans, it sounds like Fulham were in regular season form. Their next match will be Saturday at Bournemouth. I will have a post after the results of that friendly match.
