Marco Silva took over at Fulham after the club was relegated.

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.

Fulham is a football team based in a beautiful part of London. It is the team I support in the Premier League. I can say that Craven Cottage is the most beautiful stadium in London. My favorite player is Raul Jimenez. I think he will finish the league in 9th place in the 2023-24 season.

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.

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.
