I will be the first person to admit that I was wrong in my recent claims on this blog that Fulham had no chance against Manchester United this weekend or any weekend.

After Saturday's decisive 2-0 win over the European champions I will gladly eat my words and enjoy a beer or two tonight in honor of this memorable victory that cements Fulham's position inside the top ten with just two months remaining in the season.

Fulham finally won on the road my fellow Fulham supporters. It was long overdue, but it came and it came at a time when the Cottagers needed it the most. Fulham has come close on a number of different occasions this season but came up short. On Saturday at the Reebok against Bolton not only did Fulham win the match, they dominated it in every facet of the game.

Reading some of the emails and comments I received in the past two weeks it seems as though there really were some Fulham supporters out there who thought the Cottagers had a good chance of defeating Manchester United on Saturday in the FA Cup quarterfinals. While I commend the optimism and all, I would suggest laying off the Fulham kool-aid for the remainder of the season. Fulham was thrashed 4-0 and their hopes of returning to Wembley for the first time since 1975 vanished in a heartbeat.

When looking at the fixture list in preseason for many years, the trip to north London to face Arsenal was one I always had marked as a loss. Fulham have never won against the Gunners on their travels and with the some of the high flying teams Arsene Wenger has had in years past, it was nearly impossible to beat them anywhere, let alone their backyard.

However, this season, the Gunners are a different team. While they have loads of talent, both young and old, the team has struggled and much to the happiness of Fulham fans around the world, the Cottagers went to the Emirates Stadium and earned a 0-0 draw to keep their drive for a top ten finish in overdrive.
