You know things are bad when Fulham players are comparing your tactics to the Football Conference.
In the wake of their draw with United yesterday, centre back Dan Burn said 'I've never headed that many balls since the Conference. The former Darlington defender made 22 clearances against the reigning champions, with United attempting a whopping 81 crosses.
Burn went on to say that United's approach came as no surprise to Fulham and he especially was delighted they seemingly had no Plan B, 'We knew that was going to happen and I was happy for them to play like that. He added 'I'm six foot seven so it helps when dealing with those sort of balls.'
In the words of Albert Einstein, insanity is 'doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.'
