Pining For Putney!

I’m jealous, I don’t mind admitting it. The first thing I did when Fulham won promotion back in May was to text a mate pleading for a ticket to Craven Cottage, simply the best away-day there is. Sadly I won’t be able to make it. Those of you who can, have an absolute blast. I […]

“Last year here, Atletico Madrid, there were two matches against them. They could not win. It’s for me, two very good examples for us to have the respect for them.” Unai Emery making sure that we do not underestimate Qarabag FK ahead of our second Europa League group stage match (courtesy of arsenal.com). A strong squad […]

Another Saturday, and of course television has moved our away match at Cardiff to Sunday lunchtime. Today’s action highlights the importance of us getting a result in Wales. Chelsea and Liverpool retained their one hundred percent starts to the season, and the reigning champions are also undefeated and following them menacingly. Newly promoted Cardiff lost […]

Huge apologies to all for the lack of a post or two this week. That wasn’t the intention but WiFi is a hit and miss affair in Cornwall, and miss is invariably the winner. Luckily, although at times today it seemed a distant prospect, I am back in time for the reunion with Jack Wilshere. […]

Normally on the eve of our visit to the bus stop in Fulham I would be plotting my day. A pint or two in the Cock Tavern has taken over from lunch in Bodeans.
