Sanchez's Vow To Attack Is Doubtful

Sanchez's Vow To Attack Is Doubtful

Fulham manager Lawrie Sanchez claims his team will adopt a positive approach as they visit Old Trafford tonight.

'It's a catch 22 with the big four,' Sanchez told Fulham's official website.

'More often than not teams go there to defend and get beaten because once a goal goes in they've got no other option than to attack and that opens a team up more and consequently they lose by more goals.

'If you sit back for 90 minutes and hope then you'll get what you deserve. You've got to go and make a game of it. We'll have a go for it.

'The facts of life are that United have a terrific home record but if you don't go there with some ambition you tend to leave with very little. I want my team to go to Old Trafford and have a go.'


Oh yeah, we've heard that before. I seem to recall Steve Coppell saying that his Reading team will not arrive to defend - yet I can't remember more than a couple of occasions when they had dared to cross the halfway-line.

Let's say that unless I see Fulham attacking I firmly believe that they won't. It is all good, making the right noises in the press but Sanchez will go for the sensible-looking option. Though it must be said that they tried to kill the game off at the Emirates when 1-0 up and could count themselves unlucky not to score a second goal...

attack could be the best form of defence wherever Fulham are concerned!

It will be good for Manu's rivals if Fulham win on this match. It will be miracle,but we trust on that. LIVERPOOL 4EVER!
