The Tanner Report: Fulham 3 Bournemouth 1

They say form is transient, class is permanent.

In the case of the Fulham strikers, who have been misfiring all season, I would add confidence and availability.

Raul Jimenez, who went 32 games without a goal, rediscovered his touch with 3 in 4 games.

Armando Broja came in on loan and, after an injury to Jimenez, Muniz has played the last 2 games and scored 3.

Muniz was out on loan to Middlesbrough as was Broja at Southampton but did not impress.

So what conclusions can one draw ?

Grab your chance and take it with confidence.

Though the Muniz first goal (our second) came from hapless defending, he attacked the six yard box which has been a bit of a no-go area for him.

The second goal he took well but the cross from Willian, my man of the match, was pinpoint accurate.

Jimenez is now injured so Muniz will keep his place for a tricky home encounter against high-riding Aston Villa next Saturday.

A common criticism of Fulham’s recruitment is that Marco Silva is too fettered and does not have a free hand.

We have seen at Everton and Nottingham Forest what can go wrong if a club loses control of funds in buying players but I believe our head coach is not the only person who does not appreciate the implications of financial fair play.
