Fulham 0-0 Sunderland
There were only a few scoring opportunities in the match.
Fulham had three chances in the First Half: One went wide of the goal, the second banged off of a defender and the third was a long shot at near the end of the Half that was easily saved.
The Second Half saw Sunderland with most of the scoring chances, and a desperation long shot right before the end whistle was headed away by a Fulham defender.

What This Is
A season replay of the 2008-09 Sunderland AFC English Premier League Season. I am using Lambourne/Owzat Games, The Beautiful Game for the replay.
I kind of follow the English Premier League and have for about five years now. I figured that I finally had to choose a favorite team. I never like to go with the obvious favorites and I did some research. I settled upon Sunderland because I liked their web page and I liked their home stadium a lot (The Stadium of Light). I'm a Yank, so that's all I have to go on...
