BBC Panorama's over-hyped expose of shady figures and dirty laundry at FIFA HQ has been and gone. It told us nothing we didn't know, but it's timing can only do harm to England's bid

That great English tradition, the FA Cup 3rd round arrives in early January. A weekend when supporters of the smaller clubs dream of a big scalp. The Whites this season will be in the sights of Peterborough United

By Thursday the football federations of Holland & Belgium, Spain, Portugal, England and Russia will find out if all the air miles, banquets, schmoozing, political manouvering and gifts have paid dividends. Only FIFA is guaranteed to come out smiling.

More points dropped against a modest Birmingham outfit means Fulham complete a miserable month with just three points from a possible 15. A run that leaves us on the brink of the relegation places.

They should be giving tickets away for this one. Fulham have £20 million worth of international strikers on the sick list and are winless from the last four. Birmingham yet to win away...

With only Wigan's wildly negative GD keeping us currently outside the bottom three, it's clear the Whites need to start winning again. Will the moon be blue over Craven Cottage in Sunday's TV game?

Another painful reminder this week at Wembley for England fans that we are indeed well on the path to becoming second grade at international level. A good game for Bobby Z to miss, misery for the 85,000 who turned up.

Is for this absurd inability to find an away win to come to an end pretty damn soon. Any point from away trips is a bonus but no win at Newcastle sees Fulham slip closer to the drop zone.

All rather predictable as the Whites return empty handed from their trip to Stamford Bridge, or do we take solace from the fact we ran the Champions close? Cut it any way you like, a loss is a loss.

Fulham face their toughest examinaton of the season so far against the Champions from just down the road. But don't expect it to be a neighbourly affair after both sides came up short at the weekend.

Despite last winter's 2-0 success Villa rarely do well at the Cottage. Saturday's side travels bereft of big names and struggling to raise a strike force, while the Whites are full of confidence.

Ten games in and 10th in the table. A new management team at the helm, some fresh faces on the pitch, much to debate, and an awful injury to our star man. So what do we think of it so far?
