Fulham

Fulham

Fulham Football Club is one of the oldest clubs in England. They are based in Fulham which is in the west of London. Their stadium, Craven Cottage is on the north bank of the Thames. The stadium is named after a Royal hunting lodge that stood on the same spot for over 300 years. Fulham’s nickname is the Cottagers. 

The Cottagers are the oldest club in London and have played many seasons in the highest tier of English football. 

  • Stadium: Craven Cottage  
  • Stadium Capacity: 25,700
  • Location: West London 
  • Founded: 1879 
  • Nickname: The Cottagers, The Whites, The Lilywhites
  • Manager: Marco Silva
  • Kit: White shirt and socks, black shorts

Fulham was formed in 1879 and is based in West London on the banks of the River Thames. Their main rivals are Chelsea, whose Stamford Bridge Stadium is actually in Fulham rather than Chelsea. Throughout its history, Fulham have played in all four divisions of English football and have never won a major trophy, although they were very close in 2010 when they lost the Europa League Final to Athletico Madrid after extra-time. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Championship Winners (second level): 2000/01
  • FA Cup Runners-up: 1975
  • UEFA Europa League Runners-up: 2010
  • Premier League best finish (7th): 2008/09

The Manager

Marco Silva, Manager of Fulham, celebrates following their side's victory

Marco Silva took over at Fulham after the club was relegated. He lead the team to a string of victories at the beginning of their Championship campaign, earning 13 out of a potential 15 points and bagging the Manager of the month award for August. He won the award again in January after his team scored 19 goals in three matches. Fullham were promoted back to the Premier League after finishing top in the Championship. 

Players to watch

The Fulham manager is not the only influence on the Fulham squad. Here are two players to watch out for in the Premier League this season:

Aleksandar Mitrovic

The Serbian striker has led Fulham's attack since joining the club in 2018. He has made over 150 appearances for the club and has racked up 89 goals (he may have scored more since this page was published)

Fulham football club is Chelsea's main rival. However, they are not so powerful like Chelsea, so the derby is not as exciting as it should be.

It's unbelievable a lodge stood on the same spot for over 300 years. The people who preserved this heritage have to be congratulated.

I remember the big clubs always struggling to beat Fulham, specially at home. I found their stadium's architecture fantastic!

Fulham was more famous in the early 2000s than nowadays and I remember some of the famous players back as the likes of Danny Murphy and Clint Dempsey not to forget the legendary goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar before joining us in 2005.
Wish all the best to Fulham fans.

It's obvious now that they are going to finish not higher than 18-th. But Liverpool MUST take Fulham quite seriously.

In my opinion Fulham fight against relegation, it will be a hard work for them. Don't conceding goals it will be very important, if I could recommend brazilians defensive:
Manoel - Cruzeiro
Lucas Romero - Cruzeiro
Gustavo Blanco - Atlético Mineiro
Henrique - Corinthians

I know Fulham as an Egyptian owner club. El Fayad had been Fulham president for many years before Lady Di his wife died.

I learned from the above reading that a Malaysian owns the club now.
