Fulham - Looking Back

Fulham - Looking Back

I cannot think of a better first article other than to look back at this season as a whole and think, 'wow!'

The words of Jonathan Pearce's Match of the Day commentary still ring through my ears after the fateful 1-0 win over Portsmouth less than a year back.

'It hasn't been pretty; It has been tight, and gut-wrenching, and for Fulham, absolutely delicious.'

'Danny Murphy will be bathing in sunshine somewhere, and so will they: And bathing in the expectancy of another Premier League season to come. Its smiles for Fulham, and at the end of this long, 10 month slog, it's tears for Reading and Birmingham.'


Hodgson performed a miracle, and fulfilled what seemed an impossible dream. And yet, he wouldn't stop there. From any perspective, it is hard to see this current season, 2008-2009, as anything but spectacular.

Written off by almost every critic at the start, with a 2-1 defeat to Hull hardly doing wanders to silence them. But, we have proved them wrong.

This is a club on the up, with a fantastic fan base, a top-drawer manager, and a bunch of persistent and hard-working players. Bundles of superlatives can be thrown at our traditional club, but only one fits the bill. Magical.
