'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fulham - What If?

Sat in the local public house last night, with a few friends, we entered into one of those debates that you hope would never happen.

We went down the theoretical route whereby we debated one of those what if scenarios.

On this occasion the what if question related to the possibility of there no longer being a Fulham Football Club, of it all having gone pear-shaped and slid down the slippery financial slope that many other clubs are perched precariously on.

As the person who seemed to be chairing the imaginary scenario I wanted to know where your support would be diverted to if Craven Cottage was no more.

Would you give up football altogether or is that an impossible situation?

Would you start following another London side or would that be too painful?

Our opinions were split!

Out of our little group we agreed that life without football would be intolerable but we all agreed that another Premier League outfit would be a no go.

In the end, after several pints of the stronger amber nectar on offer in the establishment, the consensus of opinion was that we`d probably end up at somewhere like Brentford!

But what would you do, we`d be interested to find out!

it's a bit unfair for me to answer, as my university roommate of four years was a gunner, and they play beautiful football, but i'd probably support arsenal... don't get me wrong, nothing makes me happier than being able to tell my mate to shove it when brede scores the odd goal and we keep a clean sheet, but i'd probably move on to following them...

Al Billy - always glad to publish anything I receive that's good - it's a lonely furrow I plough on here sometimes :-(

As for AFC Wimbledon - wrong side of the river for me! Went for Brentford cos of the pub on each corner did we chaps?
Putney

I'd support Man City, and I would have answered this way even before the new, mega-rich owners.

As i'm down on the south coast my local team would be portsmouth so i think i'd just give up football lol
Oldwolf
As i live in Australia and my local team is Adelaide UTD but i still love Fulhamfc and if i had to go for another epl team it would have to be Chelsea because of they got some of my favourite players like Ballack and Deco.
