hello, im lee. im 17 years old and live on the the isle of man.
An aweful lot of people over here ask why i support fulham, as the majority support the man utd man city liverpool and everton (geographicly) in a quick response ill say my mum is from london and leave it at that, so there... but in truth my mums grandparents are from east london supporting west ham, they then moved to north london, where my mums mum (my grammy) supports tottenham, and my grandad supporting arsenal. my mum moved around alot in london so she followed the spuds as my grammy,
but at the age of 10-11 i decided not to follow those teams of above. but to follow a team from london, but which one?
there was arsenal west ham or tottenham, for family obv.
so i was lying in bed one night thinking ive got to pick a team to follow, and for some reason fulham popped into my head!? i really dont know why, i knew nothing about them! and thought sod it ill support them! so for the following months i was reading up on fulham, researching and following them, my friends and family thought i was a bit strange to support a southern tem, but somehow i felt it was right.
my first game was in 2006 against west brom, in which we won 6-1 (what a first game eh?
i manage about 8 home games a year, and maybe 2-3 away games aswell - plus this years europa games and final ! hehe
and a couple of months ago my father (man utd supporter but now avidly follows fulham cause of me
) was doing some family history research, and it turns out the furthest back he could trace ( somewhere 1800's or something) the family name originated from fulham!!
was it fate? id like to think so..
