A vibrant second-half against the 'Millionarios of Manchester' really had the Cottage rocking for the first time this season. Still no wins...but belief is back.
Following a crazy set of results, Saturday night was not pleasant for Whites fans as we looked up from last place in the division. Winless and probably weary from Thursday night, I think a majority of us approached the arrival of Citeh with some trepidation. They'd thumped us 4-1 last November, and had improved the side even further since then, with the Argentine Aguero looking absolutely world class. Remembering what they'd done to Spurs left me hoping we might just escape without too much damage to our goal difference.
But, of course, I should have known better. This is Fulham after all. Off the pace once again in the first-half, conceding midfield to Barry and Toure, Schwarzer keeping us in the game - just - and little happening for Jol's formation going forward...well, let's be honest. Who else didn't think we were dead and buried 12 seconds into the 2nd half when Aguero caught us stone cold from the restart?
But Fulham turned the game on its head. Not only were we full value for our point, few might have found against us had we sneaked all three points. I can't put my finger on where the impetus came from, certainly not in terms of shape or tactics, but suddenly we were actually making real inroads into the opposing box, Bobby pulled out a cracker, and now it was Hart's excellence keeping his side afloat, while Mark was largely a spectator.
Sidwell had one of his best games marauding around in midfield, Dembele ran with far more purpose, the back four looked the solid unit of old again (especially with Baird back in place of Senderos). And 'doing the Poznan' at the Hammy End created more mirth than I've witnessed at the ground since the playing days of Jimmy Hill!
I'm not going to over-analyze the performance or suggest we're now on our way to the top six, but it could well be the turning point we have been craving. It's over to you guys to pass up your verdict on where Fulham go next after this very positive result.
