  1. Sorry for the late reply, Muur. Glad you're enjoying Fossey. He basically had 2 major injuries in his youth career, so that took a few years off his playing time. Hopefully he can stay healthy and keep improving. Question for Oufcad32, how is Ben Davis getting on since joining you guys? I've seen he's been on the bench for you a few times, but has he been playing for your youth teams at all? I'm guessing he might have had international duty with Thailand at some point, too?
  2. Our game with Blackpool today had to be paused, due to a medical emergency in the Hammersmith end. The fan who was being treated has sadly passed away tonight.
  3. Enjoying Marlon Fossey, Muur?
  4. Went outside for the first time since last March today. Just a short walk down the road to my GP for my first vaccine dose. Now back to isolating again for at least another 12 weeks, when I should be contacted for the second dose.
  5. Definitely a tale of two halves against West Brom. Went from playing like prime Barcelona to not so prime Swindon Town It was always gonna be a 6 pointer between the 2 sides, and from the 2 games, we got 4 points, they got 1. Not to mention our goal difference is a lot better, but saying all this, we'll probably both go down, and Sheffield United will survive, lol. Also, Muur, I randomly decided to look at Fulham's 0-0 record in the Premier League, and the most we have had against a single team is against Bolton, a total of 5, and all of them were Away, lol.
  6. Thank you for the condolences. Still getting used to the fact that I won't see my nan again, but now the funeral has taken place, it's sinking in a bit more :(
  7. My nan passed away on the 3rd of January, and I'm still struggling to come to terms with it, so saying so on here might help me accept it. It was COVID-19 that took her from us. And by us, I mean her 6 children, 23 grandchildren, 52 great grandchildren, and 5 great, great grandchildren. She was doing everything right to not get the COVID-19, but her health issues she had picked up with age meant she had to go into hospital, which is where she caught the disease, which is upsetting beyond belief. Her time might have been soon, but for that to be what took her, is hard to take in. Due to restrictions, the funeral will only consist of 9 people, the 6 children, 2 of their partners, and my nan's next door neighbour/best friend. There will be a video stream of it, which myself and my siblings will be watching together, but it won't feel right until we can celebrate her life properly, which we all plan on doing when it becomes possible to do. Oh and might as well put this whilst I'm here. I also have health issues, so I came to the decision to isolate myself, and I haven't been outside since March the 20th 2020. Every time I consider trying to, the world gets a little madder, or restrictions get even tighter. Apologies, as I've just seen AlterNation's post. My condolences to you, I hope you're coping OK. And the same goes for anyone else this dreadful disease has affected.
  8. One of my favourite Fulham players I watched as a kid, Papa Bouba Diop, has passed away at the age of 42. Reports are saying from a "long illness", but no word on exactly what said illness was. Absolutely devastated. My thoughts are with his family and friends. Rest In Peace, Wardrobe.
  9. I'm just gonna pretend that Lookman penalty mishap didn't happen... Fulhamish.
  10. 1967 or something since you last beat us at Craven Cottage in the league, I believe. Beaten us in the cup though.
  11. Yeah I watched it. Was fearing the worst, but it was to be Fulham's night for once. Hopefully things start picking up from here.
  12. So that's what winning a game feels like. Get in!
  13. Fulham's defense doesn't seem that bad now, considering the other results this weekend
  14. Nice. In Wales, I've only been to Swansea, saw the first game played at The Liberty, Swansea 1-1 Fulham, in a friendly. As for TV schedule, announced today, fixtures selected up to the 2nd of November. http://www.premierleague.com/broadcast-schedules Also, will you be supporting Fulham this weekend, as we travel to Wolves?
  15. As it stands, they've gone back to only showing a selection of Premier League games on TV, which is bs. Hoping all games become available to watch, even if they are painful to watch, as a Fulham fan, lol. Also, Muur and dje, do you follow any local non-league teams where you are? I follow Tooting & Mitcham, as they're quite local. Used to go see them play a few times, but now follow their progress through media. Other teams I follow the progress of are Met Police FC, and Walton Casuals FC. Again, both fairly local, and the Chairman of the latter is ex Fulham player, Tony Gale, who my dad is mates with, haha. He (my dad) has been going since 1965/66, and has been able to meet and become friends with a few of our ex players. Les Barrett owned a flower shop just down the road from me, so I met him a few times. Oh, and our team's coach broke down one game, so they shared the fan's coach (which my dad was stewarding), and George Best offered to look after my older brother (now in his late 40s). Kinda went on a ramble there, but figured I'd share, haha.
  16. Yeah time's been flying, but it's part of our history. Annoys me that some of our fans think we're entitled to be a top club, and mope when we don't spend time in the top division. I was born in 1993, and my dad started taking me to Fulham games as soon as he could (heck, he was taking my mum when she was pregnant with me to games, haha). We were in the old Division 2 (now League One) at that time, and I didn't see us in the Premier League until the 2001/02 season, after we got promoted with Blackburn and Bolton in 2000/01. Fun times.
  17. And to make matters worse for Fulham, Tony Khan tweeted after the game yesterday that we tried getting players in, but started giving every excuse possible, even though we should have sorted out the back line years ago. Made it seem like it was everyone's fault but his own. Then he stated that when we finished 20th in the Championship, we would've killed to be a yo-yo club It's not as if we hadn't spent 13 years in the Premier League, with 3 runs in Europe - 1 of those runs getting all the way to the final of the Europa League, and 1 winning the Intertoto Cup (might not be the most prestigious competition, but who'd ever thought that Fulham would be in Europe, let alone win a trophy in it?) Hopefully we get some Premier League quality players in before the window closes, and things start picking up.
  18. Embarrassing against Villa (typing this before the game is over). We're gonna end up beating Derby's record at this rate. I'm usually pretty positive, but how many times can you say, "it's only so many games in, it's too early"? Still gonna stick by the team until the end. Attack wise, we look alright, as in we have a striker who can find the net (usually), but the defence is a shambles. Something's gotta give.
  19. Fulham won away at West Brom 1-2 today. I mean, it was the U23s, but it still counts, dammit!
  20. Well I jinxed it for one team, paha. Also, it's been penalty mad these past few days, in the Premier League and the cup. I swear every game tonight had at least one given (not talking about after FT).
  21. Nice. It's better than nothing, I suppose. Potential of West Brom vs Fulham in the next round of the cup, which I've more than likely just jinxed
  22. Teams in the Premier League conceding goals left, right and centre, but only Fulham are "definitely getting relegated", lol. How have you guys been keeping up with your matches? iFollow? Our league games have all been televised, thus far, and myself, dad and brother watched our Carabao Cup game against Ipswich Town on the carabaocup live site, which we will also be doing for tomorrow's game against Sheffield Wednesday. Quality isn't great, especially for a tenner, but at least it's something. Our site's official TV service thing is only providing live audio for matches, and my dad has a subscription, so it's an option for games that aren't televised.
