Sanchez Looking at Europe!

Sanchez Looking at Europe!

After surviving what would have been a cataclysmic relegation, the mood remains upbeat at Craven Cottage.

With so many new arrivals on the scene that even Pythagoras would have lost count, it`s difficult to gauge our ambition for next season.

Ideally, we`d like an instant reward, a good cup run, a mid table finish or could there possibly be more to come than that?

At the press conference held yesterday, Lawrie Sanchez was adamant that he`s not prepared to let the club slide again, indeed, he hinted that European qualification might be a possibility.

Here`s what he had to say,

"What I`m trying to do is drive this set of players on and put Fulham on a more competitive basis."

"This is our seventh year in the Premier League and ninth was the highest finish. My job is to push for that ninth and maybe higher."


Come on Fulham, let`s get stuck in, nothing is impossible, is it?

i hope you make europe. even the champions league! it would be nice to have both chelsea and fulham in it. unlikely but nice. i've never understood the bad feeling between the two clubs. not so long ago if chelsea were playing away then people would go and watch fulham at home, and vica versa - just ask dennis waterman!

Europe. You mean a day trip to The IOW. No chance of top ten. Bottom 8 more like it. Nothing personal.
