End of Season DVD



2010 was the year that the football world stood back and applauded the quite remarkable achievements of a team from South West London - Fulham Football Club.

It was a campaign that saw Mohamed Al Fayed's Club defeat the powerhouses of European football: FC Basel, Shakhtar Donetsk, Juventus, Wolfsburg and Hamburg as the Whites stormed their way to the UEFA Europa League Final.

Fulham Manager Roy Hodgson, the 2009/10 League Managers Association Manager of the Year, was the mastermind behind a season that shall never be forgotten. Hodgson's Team delivered glorious domestic and European victories at the Cottage that will live long in the memory of the Fulham faithful.

Re-live all the historic wins and memorable goals from the 2009/10 season - it was a campaign like no other and one that shall live in the hearts and minds of Fulham fans forever.

Mbokani keen on Fulham move
Standard ace wants Craven Cottage switch

Standard Liege star Dieumerci Mbokani has confirmed his interest in sealing a move to Fulham.

The DR Congo international striker is set to leave the club this summer after three years with Liege, during which time he has scored over 30 goals.

A number of Premier League sides have shown an interest with Birmingham, West Ham and Everton all making contact with Standard.

Roma are also believed to be keen, but a move to England looks to be Mbokani's preference and Fulham are leading the chase.

Standard director Pierre Francois and CEO Luciano D'Onofrio were in London earlier this week, and it is reported in Belgium that they held talks with Fulham.

Mbokani is now keen for the deal to be finalised, which could be worth up to €10million (£8.2million).

Ideal

"I knew that Fulham are interested, I also know that Lucien D'Onorfio promised to help me get a transfer a year ago and he will respect his word," he told HLN.

"I now hope that Standard will find common ground with Fulham, a club I feel is ideal."

Standard have refused to confirm they are in talks, but the player's agent Fabio Baglio admitted Fulham were keen.

"Fulham is not the only club interested in Dieumerci, but I consider Fulham the best option," he said.

"I assume that the management of Stanard and I will have contact once they have reached agreement and then everything will proceed."

BBC Sport - Football - World Cup 2010: Ghana's John Pantsil targets semi-final
World Cup 2010: Ghana's John Pantsil targets semi-final

Ghana right-back John Pantsil expects no less than a semi-final appearance for his country at the World Cup in South Africa.

The Fulham defender told BBC World Service's Sportsworld: "An African country can lift the cup.

"In Germany in 2006 we reached the last 16 but now, with Africa hosting and a stronger squad I have full confidence of us being in the semi-finals.

"It is a big chance for Africa to achieve," he added.

Ghana will be looking to build on their 2006 World Cup campaign which saw them notch up impressive wins against Czech Republic and the USA, before being knocked out by Brazil in the next round.

"Our group is very tricky but we have to focus on doing better than before," he said.

The Black Stars line up in Group D alongside Germany, Australia and Serbia. Their first game, against Serbia, takes place on 13 June in Pretoria.

After an impressive African Cup of Nations campaign, which saw Ghana lose 1-0 in the final to Egypt, confidence in the camp is high.

Pantsil missed out on the competition because of a ligament injury, but now has his sights firmly set on an outstanding showing in South Africa.

"We are not lacking in any area. We have a good first 11 and a good bench so that will help the team progress to a better level than 2006," he said.

He is also looking forward to having the full support of not only his home country Ghana, but the rest of the continent, too.
"All the African countries will get great support from South Africa. African fans will not support one country but will support Africa," Pantsil said. "In Africa we love football."
