    Tied for the lead on FFC with 2 goals. Just both in the wrong net. The lack of offense on this team just puts the defense under too much pressure.

    Good fortune for Fulham that this season's bottom 4 is the worst in recent memory by a big margin.

    The calls from Fulham supporters for Fode Ballo-Toure are starting to get a bit louder. Antonee has really struggled recently...poor positioning/decision making (especially with the ball at his feet)/etc.

    He's already scored as many goals as Jozy did in his entire EPL career with two clubs and in 70 games.

    He and Ream are still struggling a bit defensively of late... Jedi had a great run/assist but was completely fooled at his own end-line leading to the first game tying goal. But I think it is something he will clean up a bit and average out as the season progresses. I am certainly heartened that he seems to have taken positive steps offensively this season.

    Jedi's assist was beautiful. He got beat like a rented mule on Wolves' first goal. He is The One to bring balance to the Force.

    In all seriousness, Jedi really was beaten badly on the goal but he got zero help from Castagne, who was woefully out of position on the far post. On a better team, Jedi's teammates would have bailed him out from that one but not yesterday. He needs to realize that he can't make those mistakes.

    In general he was really solid today. He made one mistake in each half - in particular he overcommitted into midfield at one point in the second half which allowed Liverpool to counter attack against Ream and Bassey. He also (while exhausted) misplayed a freekick pass late in second half stoppage time while trying to be too aggressive in his own half.

    Outside of those three instances, Robinson was excellent in this match, and arguably Fulham's best player across the 90 minutes. He generally kept Salah quiet or at least minimized the damage which is about all you can ask. And he was a genuine threat offensively.

    Conceding two goals so quickly to lose was the most Fulham thing ever, though :(.

    A rob been really good lately. Maybe a commodity in next transfer window.

    I don't see any of the big epl clubs needing a left back maybe except man u and newcastle. He will be great in Liverpool system

    Robinson played 75 minutes today and left when Fulham led 4-0. Fulham ultimately defeated Nottingham Forest 5-0.

    Jedi has been so good this season, despite the individual moments where he has broken down (and those are going to come as Fulham surrenders possession and spends so much time defending). But look at the team - Wiliam is one of the laziest defenders in the EPL and Ream is one of the slowest CBs in the EPL. Yet Fulham's left side defense has held together because of Jedi and Palhinha. Robinson covers so much ground. And, as a result, FFC can play Ream and Wiliam and it's no surprise that, with Tete out, most of FFC's offense generates down their left flank. And Jedi isn't just defensive cover - he helps supply that offense.

    I think a bigger club will come calling for him. We will see.

    There is no bigger club (for an Ami!) Let him stay and Fulham get bigger instead.

    He banks one in off a defender:
