SAFC v Fulham: ‘let’s hear it for Johnny Haynes’

Especially for those outraged by our lapse from republican values, to the extent of running a spoof wedding vows item, it’s straight back to normal business. Late, almost too late, came this gem: a second Fulham “Who are You?”, this time from David Lloyd, editor of the fan site There’s Only One F In Fulham […]

The Fulham Who are You?: ‘a bad time to play us’

A Fulham supporter whose photos have graced these pages was all lined up, then went AWOL. Just when we thought we’d have to run the spoof Lily Allen interview all over again, Sean Collins popped up – courtesy of the Fulhamfc site, to which huge thanks for indulging a Mackem in despair – with these […]

General lethargy, weakness, muscle aches, headache, and low-grade fever may occur. It sounds as if that’s what I’ve had since not too long after the […]

The Fulham Soapbox: no outing the Cottagers

Was even X Factor more entertaining that this, without costing £35 to watch? A bore draw with little to relieve the tedium beyond the magnificence of John Mensah. At least Pete Sixsmith enjoyed the pre-match real ale … Last year at Craven Cottage, we succumbed to a Bobby Zamora goal, saw Anton Ferdinand limp off […]

Fulham 0 SAFC 0 Observed: no seasonal sparkle

Fulham v SAFC: Fayed, pictures of Lily, praise for our Steeeeeed

We promised Fulham’s man of money in this week’s “Who are You?” slot, and while Steve Johnson* may not be Mohamed as Fayed, or have quite his fortune, he does work in money.

Soapbox: Birmingham memories, fighting Sunderland lasses and plaudits for Fulham

Such nights don’t come along too often. We’d won promotion and clinched the title, the team were out celebrating with their wives (two of whom got on spectacularly badly as the night wore on).
