Chris at The Offside is annoyed that Fulham haven’t got as much credit as they deserved for our exceptional performance yesterday afternoon at the Cottage.

His biggest gripe is that the media continually repeated the myth that we beat nine men yesterday. But we scored the goals whilst United had ten players and United’s disciplinary woes were entirely self-inflicted.

There’s a nice bit of appreciation of Zoltan Gera’s sensational late strike too. I hadn’t noticed previously the hard work that went into that goal. Etuhu threw himself into a 50-50 to win the ball back, Gera worked the ball out to Johnson and his skill to steer into the far corner with a spectacular scissor kick was out of this world.

Some of the comments protesting at the Scholes red card crack me up.
