...good question Hazey, you are an Aussie who is a member of FOF so you should be included in the list. If you want to stay up late nad communicate with your fellow antipodeans that is up to you ;D

The reason for this is that the Fulham Australia site has been spammed to death and is for all intents and purposes defunct. It would be a good idea for those in the southern hemisphere to use this sites facilities to keep in touch whilst the poms and yanks are tucked up in the sack - and maybe use this as the Independent Australian Fulham fans mouthpiece.

COYA&NZW!!!

None of my relatives are on here, but there's a lot of Fulham fans amongst my clan in NZ. I'm half Kiwi and I'll bet you didn't know that.

Does that mean you only have an unnatural attraction to woolly creatures half of the time then Dan ?  ;)

That depends if the other half is Irish doesn't it?

I have just moved back too Lamby. The wife and I were just saying the other day how much we miss going to the Cottage and that our best ever investment in the UK was an FFC season ticket!!
We have been watching (recording) the FFC games on Fox, but gee's we wish we were there!! :(

I'm a London based Aussie... back in Australia for the next few weeks.

Quick question, will there be any coverage of the Europa league game on ESPN? Do they have the red button match choice like fox sports?

The last game against Shaktar was on Fox Sports 3 if I remember rightly. You will therefore have the option to record or watch it live, as it will definately be on one of the Fox Sports channels.

Good to have you guys aboard!   Don't be strangers...

Did Fulham's most recent summer travels have anything to do with your interest in the club or did you guys find the club prior?

Lol fair enough questions. We actually met each other in the very early beginings of Gold Coast United, and the obvious first question popped up 'Who do you support?', and guess what, we were both Fulham supporters. Then Fulham came to town to play Gold Coast and from that moment on we realised it was time to go over there and support the boys in the flesh and watch some decent football! Poor attendances for GCU and and an overall dislike for the team in the region has made the wait SO much longer!

So via the World cup in SA, i will be finally watching the boys from the stands in H5! REJOICE!

Haha, how random is that. I remember we met at the first GM for GCU and he was like, im gonna go home tonight, have a bevvie and watch the mighty whites. I was like, "you follow the whites?" and he was like "If you mean Fulham, then yeah". Haha

It was funny to run into another fan like that and now we are moving over to watch the boys in the flesh at the cottage. Its basically a dream come true.

One of my ancestors was sent  to Austrailia for stealing a sheep. His family moved out there to be with him a year later. So if anybody knows of any Wingroves who can trace their family to 1846 or just after. Hi family of mine.

Lest We Forget

Today is ANZAC day, it is to commemorate the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who gave service, who were maimed or ultimately lost their lives for the British Empire and freedom.

This particular song, even though about the Australian contingent, but with the intention to remind us of the pain and suffering each nation experiences because of war, is sad and poetic but worth a listen to:-

And the band played Waltzing Mathilda (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPFjToKuZQM#)
