Nice story. Fulham is full of fans that actually have to work at it. Try following a noon match in SoCal. My wife thinks I'm nuts to get up at 4 AM for a football game. I cant imagine how those down under do it  :down_under: Of course it is all worth it. Well, except that the whining of the past 18 months has gotten out of hand. Life is not without its burdens. LOL
Post more often and work on those girls. You could always threaten to abandon them in Chelsea and see if that'll get them in line.
Here's at ya!  :beer:

Cheers YJ

Don't envy you having to get up at 4 in the morning. Both girls know under no circumstances are they ever to support Chelsea, although my eldest daughter is currently making noises about supporting Arsenal. I'm sure her mum is behind it all

Arsenal is not so bad. At least they play pretty football. On the other hand, if she were pushing Chelsea........well, lets just say  the jury would probably find it justifiable.

Hey Folks!

I am Matt originally from Cincinnati, OH, USA, and have been following Fulham since the 2010-2011 season. Originally turned on to Fulham because of the Deuce and other previous american connections. Had the opportunity to visit the Cottage(2014) for a game when I was studying abroad, and saw them beat Bolton 4-0 :yay:

Looking forward to cheering on the Whites this season and getting to know the FoF community a bit better!

Cheers,
Matt

Howdy! My name is Lyle, and I am a Fulham fan going back to the 2006-2007 season. I live in Brede Hangeland's birthplace of Houston, Texas. I am originally from Louisiana, but have lived in Texas for over a decade now. I used to be a member of the FFC website forum way back when as Crispus Attucks, and I was a forum poster at FulhamUSA when it existed. I even met up with a couple of FulhamUSA folks years ago at a Houston pub to watch Fulham play.

I haven't been following Fulham super closely the last several years, but I am back to paying more attention now. I chose Fulham for its history, Craven Cottage, and the fact that it wasn't a powerhouse club. The character of the club just seems to fit my personality more than some other clubs. It's gentlemanly. The Americans on the team, like McBride and Bocanegra, helped at the time too.

I remember you as Crispus. I wonder if our hosts ever figured out who the real Crispus was? Welcome back. The overseas board has been almost inactive for some time. A lot of yanks bailed when Deuce did. The horrible football under Jol and the crazy kraut didn't help.

BTW, hope you and yours came out pf the recent hurricane/flooding ok.

What's up? Yeah, I posted quite regularly under Crispus Attucks. Loved it. I remember one person saying something about it, but I think they were American. Good times.

I made out okay during Harvey. Weirdest hurricane I've ever been through. Wasn't all that powerful for Houston, but then the thing took 5-6 days to move past us dropping an insane amount of water. Where I live got standing water of over a foot. I live in a second floor apartment and made out fine. I had to take a neighbor in from the first floor. They got 5-6 inches of water in their place. The water receded very quickly so we weren't in need of rescue. It wasn't a bayou, creek, lake, reservoir, or river flooding. Most people in Houston made out fine, but if you were right up near a body of water, you probably had catastrophic flooding. Some folks within walking distance of me with homes near White Oak bayou got wiped out. The level the water had to get to get inside their houses is amazing. Houston is picking up and moving forward.

I never really stopped following Fulham, but once FulhamUSA had website issues and the Fulham forum went away, I just kept away from Fulham fandom. Got back into baseball following the Astros in some lean years, but recognized they were building up something good, which is happening now.

Fulham looks good though. Bought the TV package. Watched the Boro and Forest games. Likeable team and I admire the owner Khan. Seems like a cool dude.

I have been watching more Bundesliga now too. I was a student in Germany and worked there one summer. I was near Cologne and pay attention to  1. FC Koeln. Great fans, but their team is a mess right now. Historically a big team in Germany, but since the late 90s they've been a yoyo team, going up and down.
