At the moment there is a big shortage of hgv drivers in the uk due to COVID and brexit, and the same type applies to uber, and potentially taxies. Uber maybe be especially worth it in Exeter, monetary wise, due to the huge student population.

Robinsons speed is phenomenal and for that alone I would keep him in.

Wilson and Mitro need a slap around the face to wake them up before having the privilege to walk out on the pitch for Fulham FC.
Ream and Tosin MUST NOT be bullied by Billing and Solanke. Get to the ball FIRST.
Rodak to spend a day on the punch bag warming up for the challenge.

Pop those three points in storage and and we can all have an enjoyable pint post match.

' Wilson and Mitro need a slap around the face to wake them up ' ?

What on earth is wrong with you ?

Agreed, what a disgraceful thing to say on a Fulham message board 😕

7/11s of the team were ill. Don't know why the game wasn't postponed.

Doubtless if Silva could have had the game postponed, he would have done. (He wasn't happy about playing Saturday morning - following Wednesday evening - even before we had problems.) Perhaps the impact of the illness wasn't as drastic, by the weekend, as many have presumed. Maybe it was simply more a case of turning in a rank performance like those at Blackpool and Coventry.

"It'll be to far South for me, and very seasonal."

Undeniably further south.

I've only ever been in the spring, summer and early autumn. I am interested, though that it has two Premier Inns, one on the seafront where we usually stay, the other a mile or two inland, and they recently increased the size of the seafront one. I suspect, though of course don't know, that there may be more business stayers at both than one might expect.

Good luck in Teignmouth. Nice town though as the last time we were there a seagull crapped on my wife's head, we have rather different memories of it!

Early days.... Teignmouth is about 4 stop's from Exeter, didn't want to be much further South than that, and i understand Paignton is quite a big tourist destination, want somewhere a bit quieter

I was born in Paignton and lived in Brixham and Totnes as a child, went to junior school in Totnes and use to visit Teignmouth for the carnival and Newton Abbott for stock car racing,
Buggered if I'd want to live there now though, appreciate we've all got different ideas and thoughts,

Crossing The Line: A Jack & Loz Novel


Two Season Ticket Holders, Jacqui Button and Lorraine Hughes, have written a book about a fictional Fulham team fighting for both promotion and FA Cup glory.

“Just before lockdown we had decided we wanted to write a novel together based on a fictional FFC season in the context of a London mayoral election – Fever Pitch meets House of Cards!” Jack and Loz explained.

“Not being able to go to games through lockdown freed up our time to plan and write instead. Inevitably it involved hours of discussion and deliberation – all over Zoom.

“Our book, Crossing the Line, is a story of a unique Fulham season as the team go on a memorable FA Cup campaign.

“The team has a talisman American striker and an ambitious black-clad manager who is committed to winning the club promotion as the team tries to get back to the Premier League! Alongside are two fans caught up in a Wagatha Christie quest!”

Fans may already be aware of Jack and Loz’s popular Twitter blog which provides a summary of every First Team game, and their book is available to purchase from Amazon for £7.99, with a portion of any profits going to the Fulham Foundation.

Johnny Haynes Trophy Winner 2021

The Trust is delighted to announce that the recipient of this year’s Johnny Haynes Trophy as the Fulham Supporters’ Trust Academy Player of the Year for the 2020-21 season is Fabio Carvalho.

Fabio is the third winner of the Johnny Haynes Trophy, following on from Tyrese Francois in 2019 and Jay Stansfield in 2020. The trophy is awarded annually to Fulham’s Academy Player of the Year, voted on by Academy staff and players across the Under-16 to Under-23 age groups.

Dan Crawford, who was at Motspur Park to award the trophy on behalf of the Trust, was delighted with the news and the exciting prospect that Fabio is fast showing himself to be. “I think it’s terrific. Fabio’s one of those players who has excited anyone who has watched him play at youth level. He has great vision with his passing and an energy that’s really exciting. For supporters, there’s nothing better than seeing a homegrown product break through all the way up to the First Team.”

Awarding the trophy on behalf of the Academy, Mike Cave, Academy Director added, “Fabio fully deserves this award. He’s consistently performed very well not only on the pitch but off it too.

“He’s developed well over a long period of time and was excellent last season for our Under-23s. He was part of a very strong Under-18s team the season before that, so we all certainly saw this direction of travel. Everybody in the Academy is really really proud of him.

Huge congratulations to Fabio, and we sincerely hope that this award is the start of a fantastic week for him both on and off the pitch!

Fab Wins Johnny Haynes Trophy

The Club is delighted to announce that Fabio Carvalho is the winner of the 2020/21 Johnny Haynes Trophy, after a fantastic season within the Fulham Academy.

The trophy is awarded to the Fulham Supporters’ Trust Academy Player of the Year and is voted on by Academy staff and players (U16-23s).

Fab bagged an incredible 11 goals in just 13 games for our Under-23s before going on to make his Premier League debut against rivals Chelsea.

He later scored his first senior goal in Fulham's 3-1 defeat to Southampton.

The youngster has become an integral member of Marco Silva's side, making 10 league appearances and scoring four goals in the process.

Dan Crawford from the Fulham Supporters' Trust said:

"I think it's terrific. Fabio's one of those players who has excited anyone who has watched him play at youth level. He has great vision with his passing and an energy that's really exciting. For supporters, there's nothing better than seeing a homegrown product break through all the way up to the First Team.

"To get this award is recognition from his teammates and his coaches that he's really achieved something special. Hopefully this is just the start for him."

Dan continued, "as a fan you always wonder whether a player can translate the form they showed in youth football into the senior setup. Fabio certainly hasn't looked out of place. That goal he scored against Southampton last season demonstrated his levels of confidence and calmness when he gets in promising positions.

"It's a massive boost for the fans because it proves that the club can develop its own talent and give them a pathway which is ever so important."

Fabio was delighted after being presented the award at Motspur Park:

"This is a very prestigious award and I'm really happy to have won it. My hard work has been rewarded, not just through this award but through the opportunities this club has given me.

"I look back on my Academy days very fondly. I'm still really young, so it's important for me to stay level-headed and humble. The Academy gave me so much and I often look back on my time working my way up."

Academy Director, Mike Cave, added:

"Fabio fully deserves this award. He's consistently performed very well not only on the pitch but off it too.

"He's developed well over a long period of time and was excellent last season for our Under-23s. He was part of a very strong Under-18s team the season before that, so we all certainly saw this direction of travel. Everybody in the Academy is really really proud of him."
