Thanks to our “friends” over at fellow SBNation blog Cottagers Confidential for taking the time to get in touch with us. Andrew Beck answered our questions ahead of the big match against Leeds United in West London on Tuesday night, live on Sky TV.
1. How has the season gone since we last met?
Fulham are statistically the second best team in the championship for the second straight year. Unfortunately as good as they’ve played Cardiff keep getting results. Which has made things quite frustrating. In the last 17 games Fulham are unbeaten with 14 wins and a +28 GD. You’d think they’d be getting closer to second.
2. Fulham started slow, but are now challenging Cardiff City for the last automatic promotion spot. What happened?
It was a combination of getting healthy, not getting unlucky, and Slavisa Jokanivic figuring out his team. Bringing in another left back and allowing Sessegnon to play further forward may have been the key.
3. Does Ryan Sessegnon stay at Fulham this summer?
If Fulham get promoted, I think there’s a good chance he stays. If they fall short I don’t see anyway they can keep him.
4. Is there a chance that Sessegnon makes the England squad for the World Cup?
It almost seems ridiculous to talk about it, and I don’t think it’s very likely. If there was a realistic chance of him playing for another country, I could see it. I’m just not sure he offers that much that England can’t get from more experienced players.
5. Predict the score.
Eventually Fulham is going to see this streak end. But I’m still holding out hope that they don’t drop points from here on out. So I’m not going to pick against them. I’ll say Fulham wins 2-0.
