  1. Life after Fulham and beyond

    Phil Mison

    It all started on July 18th 2010 with a strap line that read, "Where next for the Europa League runners up?" Retrieve those old ESPNSoccernet Fulham pages from the web and you will find both the newly appointed site blogger and our posters bubbli...

  2. Weekend six-pointers to favour Whites

    Phil Mison

    Apart from the wild weather on both sides of the Atlantic, it has been a quiet week. In a slow news period following the hurly burly of the crowded games around Christmas, all we've had to reflect on is the parlous state of affairs at West Ham and wh...

  3. Tigers feast on feeble Fulham

    Phil Mison

    It was the Cottagers' most embarrassing 45 minutes in two decades of professional football across all four divisions. Ineptitude on a grand scale. So have the wheels come off already for new boss Rene Meulensteen after Fulham ship six at the KC Stadi...

  4. Three strikes and out

    Phil Mison

    With less than a quarter of the match played Saturday it was game over at the Cottage. Fulham were not coming back from three down to United, as for the second week running, a referee might have stepped in to stop the contest and save the Whites furt...

  5. FFC stuck on start grid

    Phil Mison

    Another week slips by as we edge closer to the big kick-off, and still the Fulham faithful are left craving positive news. Perhaps a blitz on the transfer market the minute Martin Jol stepped off the plane back from Central America was a fanciful not...

  6. Misery on Merseyside

    Phil Mison

    Entirely predictable. Everton full value for their 1-0 win Saturday. Nothing positive whatsoever to be taken from yet another spluttering, limp away performance by a wheezing, broken unit that is so clearly dysfunctional it seems bordering on madness...

  7. Snapping the Goodison jinx

    Phil Mison

    It's just a patch of grass in a decaying inner-city district of Liverpool brick and litter. The Goodison Park architecture itself is not that dissimilar from Fulham's own Stevenage Road ground. The dimensions of the pitch are the same, and both teams...

  8. Whites trampled underfoot

    Phil Mison

    High-riding Chelsea rode across the borough bringing all their big guns, only to find Fulham armed with pea shooters. It was a dominant display by the Blues, who could have won by a bigger margin. Martin Jol was fooling nobody when he said the 0-3 re...

  9. Edging to safety

    Phil Mison

    Our second away trip of the week for Fulham fans, with expectations for all three points about as low as they were for the trip to Newcastle. The reason, Villa Park is another of those bogey grounds for the Whites where we simply never win. No matter...

  10. Fulham do the right thing

    Phil Mison

    Spike Lee would have been proud of us. Perennial underdogs and makeweight fodder in the exalted Kingdom of the Premier League, modest little Fulham's finely-tuned business model and calm stewardship from the Chairman down did for the over-excitable H...

  11. Rumble by the River Thames

    Phil Mison

    Red-blooded rivalry sees Fulham and QPR face off Monday night with sole ownership of the Premier League stage. The game (on ESPN Deportes and ESPN3/WatchESPN) is full of delicious connotations -- enough to satisfy supporters of both clubs plus the at...

  12. One Fulham over the cuckoo's nest

    Phil Mison

    It remains a labour of Sisyphus to resist sounding off like an old sourpuss on the blog this season. Believe me, it is dispiriting to fire up a fresh page and have nothing to peddle but the same old gripes. In light of the 0-0 draw at Norwich that pl...

  13. Recipe for roasted Canaries

    Phil Mison

    Prepare at least 11 birds, well-stuffed, to ensure your party goes with a swing. One or two may be tougher than the rest due to age. Do not be afraid to tenderise vigorously with a meat hammer. We find Swiss or Norwegian versions work best, though so...

  14. Resisting the Red tide

    Phil Mison

    After the midweek win over West Ham, Fulham gave further evidence of a welcome return to form with a sterling display Saturday. Though it wasn't quite enough to grab a point from an entertaining game, it was very much a team performance that suggests...

  15. Huge sigh of relief in SW6

    Phil Mison

    A cold blustery wind awaited the fans at Craven Cottage Wednesday night and tension was in the air. A thousand seats remained unsold for a London derby with old rivals West Ham. First seeds of doubt perhaps from a few fence-sitters as to Fulham's po...

  16. Playing for pride

    Phil Mison

    The big games are rushing up on us like fences at the Grand National. I'm still punch drunk from the pummeling handed down by the champions-elect at the weekend. That was the end of our cup exploits for another year, so at least that game is now cut ...
