    Yes there is a Fulham Football supporter here. We may be in the Championship League after 13 years in the Premier but we will be back in the top flight soon. We have a mixture of young and older players just now learning how to play with each other. Started off the season bad but have come on lately. Currently about 12 points away from a playoff spot with quite a few games left.

    COYW!!!!

    Good luck to Fulham. I'd love to have them back in the Premier League. Having had so many U.S. players, I always had a soft spot for them.

    When ESPN started regularly showing Premier League games, over a decade ago, many of them were of Fulham with Carlos Bocanegra and Brian McBride. Then Clint Dempsey moved to London and it was great to watch his game improve. Rooting for the Craven Cottage lads to return.

    My dad and I did Fulham away last year with Sunderland.

    Lovely little ground is Craven Cottage, great day out and weekend in London.

    In 1986 I was stationed in Lakenheath RAF Base. Decided I was going to go to a "football" game in London. The only game I could get tickets to was Fulham. Really enjoyed Craven Cottage and have been a fan of the whites ever since. During my time over there been to Craven Cottage 4 times but not since I left in 1988. One day I will make it back there to watch them play one last time. I was able to go see them play last summer in Jacksonville Florida. It was awesome.

    Fulham is everything I hate in an English football team.

    No history.
    Poor fans.
    Money pumped into them to get them to the top from rich owner.

    To each there own but do not call me a poor Fulham fan. I still follow them since 1986 even though I live in St. Louis Missouri. That is the United States you dolt.

    When did I call you a poor fan?!

    Quite clearly I was talking in general. Fulham have a lot of fans who just go so they can say they've gone to a football match. They even have a mixed away fans section.

    The mixed end is odd.

    But if it helps create real fans for Fulham along the way the good on them. Its things like this that got CFSL into it too.

    They have certainly been boosted up the pecking order with MAF's wedge but these things happen all the time. Football normally sorts itself back round again once the money goes away.

    I really like Craven Cottage like I said, a lot of time for old school grounds like that. And anyway, we will be meeting CFSL at the cottage if the Cards even get a Wembley game ;)

    Hey, I too support Fulham! I picked them as my English club a few years back, so haven't been a fan for long...

    Cool. They may be coming to the US to play this summer. Last year they played in Jacksonville in July.

    I'm pulling for them to make it back up. Where are they in the Championship table at the moment?

    They are 12 points from a playoff position with about 17 games left so they need to string together some wins.
