Some interesting pre-match comments from Jimmy Bullard here.

We’re going to go out on that pitch on Saturday believing we can take three points, and why not? Fulham have hardly changed their team since I left and they’re 10th.

I’ve been in a relegation battle with every single one of their players so that’s how quick things can change. Now they’re beating Juventus 4-1, it’s just frightening really.

I don’t recall you being in a relegation battle with Schwarzer, Pantsil, Kelly, Shorey, Gera, Dikgacoi, Greening, Riise, Gera, Duff, Elm or Zamora, Jimmy.

Not at all. It could have easily been us in Fulham’s position and them down there. Who knows next season? We stay in the Premier League, the positions could be reserved.

Presume he means reversed, rather than reserved.

We’ve got the players here, that’s why I’m here.

It’s nothing to do with the manager then? Come to think of it, Hodgson might use this as part of his team-talk come 2.45pm on Saturday.
