Upcoming Foferviews
« on: July 16, 2017, 10:04:38 AM »
Hi Guys.

Here's a list of FOFerviews that will be posted in the future. We will probably begin to post them once a month going forward so that we don't run out of people quickly lol.

There are others who aren't included yet, I'm waiting confirmation before I add them to the list. The ones on the list have either already done it or have agreed to it.


Rufus Brevett- done
Ivan Berry- Match day announcer- done
Stan Brown via his son Darren Brown- done
Paul Moody- agreed
Abdes Ouaddou- agreed
Tony Khan- agreed
Gent Jim & Jamie- agreed
Darren Freeman- agreed
Neil Smith- agreed
Gary Elkins- agreed
Elaine (fluts) Fulham Flutter organiser- agreed
Martin Plumb (author of Fulham scrapbooks)- agreed
Dirk Lehmann- agreed
Kit Symons- agreed
Jim Stannard- agreed
Jeff Hopkins- agreed
Tony Warner- agreed
Teddy Maybank- agreed
Dave Kidd- agreed
Ray Houghton- agreed

Maybe. Not sure to be honest, probably not during the transfer window anyway. That's Westcliffe Whites remit so I'll ask him if it's possible.

Just had Neil Smith agree to one which is great!

It's getting hold of people that is the tricky part. Obviously George Cohen being a man in his 70s it's very hard to find them as they are unlikely to be on social media.

If anyone has a way of contacting any player I am very happy and grateful for the help

Something that may be worth doing is everytime you interview someone you should ask them if they can introduce you to one or two (or two or three) of their close friends at the club who are interview worthy for the point of what you're doing.

So gentleman jim and Jamie could introduce you to Sean Davis and maybe one other.. then Sean could introduce you to Luis Boa Morte and so on..

In time that is exactly what I will be doing. But out of respect and being polite I don't want to ask straight away because I don't want them to feel as though I have used them to get someone better.

But that is my intention, don't worry about that. All the ones listed above are people we've found ourselves with no help.  Obviously excluding the current regime as you go through people first.

Just had another one agreed with Gary Elkins.

Like I said, any supporters who've done something unique or ex players who aren't in the spotlight anymore. Please get them in touch with me or get me in touch with them.

It's been a busy Sunday for me. I hope Fulham have a Monday like this lol.

So earlier I had Neil Smith and Gary Elkins added to the list.

In the last couple of hours I've now added 2 supporters and a porn star.

- Elaine (Fluts) the Fulham Flutter organiser at the Cottage
- Martin Plumb- author of the ashwater press writing several Fulham scrapbooks
- Dirk Lehmann!!!

Ok Guys, thanks for all the suggestions. Can I politely ask that for the next few months not to put any more forward.

We have so many to get through now that it's best to focus on these as from September we intend to only release one per month.

We've just agreed one with Kit Symons which is brilliant. We're hoping that will be an audio one.

 Sarah Brookes would be interesting. Like Jim a fan and someone who is/was attached to the Club.

Sarah wasn't interested in her last few weeks at the club. It might be a good one to come back to in 6months time. Hopefully she will have a change of heart.

Had another one agreed with Jeff Hopkins which is exciting.

This is brilliant, Danny. Dirk Lehmann is a particular coup. "Vorsprung Dirk Technik"!

Hi Danny
Back in the day when I managed Hammersmith FC Johnny Keys nephew used to play for us. John came to watch him play a few times and eventually I persuaded him to coach for us on a regular basis.  He had a lot of really good stories about Fulham FC.   He was the same age as me and used to live on Barnes estate. I remember him as a really nice chap and wonder if some of our more historically minded friends would know if he is still with us, it would be an entertaining interview if he is.

He's still alive according to wiki so I'll look into it.

Thanks for the tip  :54:
