Fulham - Your Europa League Vote!

Fulham - Your Europa League Vote!

Back in July, when we were going through the qualifying stages of the Europa League, I wonder how many supporters truly believed we`d make the last four!

I, for one, thought our hopes would flounder in the group stages, but, as usual I`ve bene proven wrong.

Instead of floundering we`ve surprised most of Europe by our clinical dispatching of three European giants, Shakhtar Donetsk, Juventus and Wolfsburg, as we`ve marched through the knockout stages to stand on the edge of greatness.

We now face a semi-final date with Hamburg and I still can`t help wondering if the bubble is going to burst any minute, have we reached our limits in this competition or can we go on and do what Middlesbrough, Rangers and Celtic have previously done and reach the final of a European competition?

Intrigued by the prospect I thought I`d put it to the vote and ask the Vital Fulham membership if they thought the semi-final represented our final destination in this competition.

The result was a resounding No!

A huge proportion of you, 79% firmly believe that humble old Fulham are going all the way to the final whilst not a single person went for the option that implied the semi-final was most definitely the end of the road.

Sure there were a few doubters with 17% opting for the damned if I know anymore option whilst 4% went for the it could well do option.

Fascinating!

Like I said, who`d have dreamed we`d be having such a conversation back in July?

I didn't think we'd get out of the group stage, but after seeing the way we've performed since Basel, I think anything is possible. We just seem to be able to get the results when we need them.

Over two legs we seem to be the match for anyone, and as we are away in the first leg I think that gives us a small advantage as we will know what we need to do when we bring them back to the Cottage, the way we did with Juve, lol

i'm just glad that we've taken this competition seriously from the get go... it's an honor that we are in it, and it's something that we deserved from our outstanding season last year... i'm glad we've taken the opportunity, and ran with it...
