    Fulham play Wigan on 09/15 AT Wigan's ground, the JJB stadium.

    Obviously McBride is out.
    With Pearce and Christanval out, you'd expect Bocanegra to play.
    Dempsey's performances over the last month mean he should be an automatic starter.
    I believe Niemi is back in the squad, and you'd expect him to start over Keller.

    A match between two clubs with 100% Premier League records. Wigan have made a 100% winning start at home; Fulham, a 100% losing start away from home.

    The first goal Fulham scores will be their 1,000th in top-flight football.
    Let's see if an American can get that one.

    Fulham have not won at Wigan since prevailing 1-3 at second league level on 1 September 1992. The odds from Skybet reflect this fact.

    Wigan win 11/10 Draw 9/4 Fulham win 2/1

    Your odds on dempsey to score today are 9:2.
    Oddly Collins John right now is 7:2. Do they know something I don't?

    Would not surprise me if Brown gets shown a straight red in this match for some kind of tackle/attack on Dempsey. He clearly hated him when they were playing together. Must be CD's effect on team captains...

    Nominally working, for me. Like a slide-show with all the buffering.

    I wonder how many goalkeeping errors Niemi will have today.

    Great for Dempsey, but he could have done it when the channel wasn't buffering :(

    Fulham cant wait to give lead away. Their back four are not good enough for the Prems and the midfield is not controlled enough to maintain possession.

    The scoring is not remotely over.

    So Dempsey has scored the 1000th goal for Fulham in the top flight.

    As well as the goal that kept them up last year. A rather auspicious start to his England career so far.

    In Fulham's last game, the 3-3 draw with Spurs, Boca wore the armband. Does he have it on again today?

    At the moment, only Anelka has scored more goals in the league than Clint.

    I'm trying to understand why Healy keeps getting left out. He's looked a better player than Kamara to me (more dangerous), and he is Clint seemed to combine well when he was out there. Did he piss off Sanchez or something?

    Neither one of them have really impressed me. I think Sanchez just flipped a coin :D

    Looks like he might get another before the game is over.

    Hopefully. And then he could bag the three points for Fulham.
