Despite my best intentions, the best way I can think of summarising today’s game is with the game of two halves cliche. The first 45 was potentially the worst half of football I have ever seen from an Albion side, we lacked any sign of fight, desire or will to take the game to Fulham and the half seemed to completely bypass us.
Thankfully, after an inspirational half-time team talk and an introduction of new signing Mbaye Diagne, Albion sprung into life and immediately looked up for the challenge of overturning the 1-0 deficit.
Matheus Pereira was once again the man that we looked to for attacking inspiration and once again he delivered. With another goal and assist under his belt, he is really starting to find some form, which is certainly welcomed following his quiet first half of the season.
New boy Diagne also looked a real presence in attack, which is something that we have been crying out for all season. With an assist on his debut, he will be full of hope for getting his first goal in the coming weeks.
With big Sam said to be hoping for another two additions before Monday’s deadline, and key players such as Grady Diangana and Conor Townsend returning from injury, there is finally a feeling that we have something to which we can build on.
All eyes are now on Tuesday’s huge clash with Sheffield United in another relegation six pointer.
