Having already attended two works Christmas do's this week, heading out tonight for a mates 40th and with Mrs Chopper's birthday on Sunday, I've not got time to do a proper preview of the weekend's game. In fact thanks to the rearranged kick-off and Mrs C's aforementioned birthday, I'm not even going. Funnily enough I didn't make last years fixture either and seeing as how we won that game (leading to me dancing in the streets of Ryde!) maybe it's a good omen I won't be there.
I do recommend you read Rob's excellent pre-match interview with a Newcastle fan and I'm sure the Craven Cottage Newsround boys will be providing an appropriate build up to the game as well.
Come on you Fulham - we need this one big time.
