Speaking ahead of the USA Men’s National Team’s next round of fixtures (Via Daily Star), Antonee Robinson has opened up on how he’s feeling ahead of Fulham’s final run-in.
The left-back has played a pivotal role for the Whites this season, and with just eight games to go, he knows that everyone will have to be up for a fight if the London club are to survive.
Unfortunately, Robinson is no stranger to a relegation battle, but he feels as though this one is slightly different.
“I’ve been in relegation fights for pretty much my whole men’s career.
“Obviously I started with Bolton and then had two seasons with Wigan which was tough as well, but with Fulham I feel like it’s slightly different,” Robinson said.
“At the start of the season we were getting written off pretty early, everyone outside the team felt they we were certain to go down. I personally, and lot of the team, we never felt like that.
“I feel like we knew what we were about and that we were a good team, had good players and that we were going in the right direction with everything we were working on.
“That seems to be bearing fruit at the moment, unless it is impossible for us to stay up we will keep fighting towards staying up.
“Whether it comes over the next few games or on the final day against Newcastle, then we have to battle and that’s what we will do.”
Robinson is absolutely right.
This Fulham team may be down, but they’re not out.
Results haven’t gone their way all season, but for the last few months it has felt like it’s only a matter of time before the situation changes.
Of course, whether or not the tide turns remains to be seen. Fulham are running out of time and the fixtures aren’t getting any easier, but if the whole squad has the same view as Robinson, they will at least have a fighting chance.
