Hello everyone!

New joiner here. I've been a Putney resident and Fulham Fan for a good few years now. I used to go to games back in 2011 and 2012 (hence the username!) but unluckily that's way too far back in the past to have any purchase history nowadays.

I'm glad to see the Watford game is now open to members with no history. Unfortunately we're away that weekend, but fingers crossed for the Arsenal one. My fiancée grew up with a Gooner dad and also plenty of trips to Vicarage Road so either of those would be fantastic to get back to the Cottage.

Glad to see this is an active and friendly forum. Looking forward to spending some time here.

Dear FFC,

Can you help me? Im a Fulham supporter since 2008 when Zoltán Gera choosed you. Im from Hungary, Budapest.

A few years ago I do a registration on the official FFC forum. I wrote an enquire about a Gera-jersey. The next day one policeman, who lived in Fulham and was a big FFC-fan asked my hungarian adress and name on the forum privately and then 2 weeks later a package arrived to my home inside a Gera-jersey and a FFC scarf.

Please, help me. Im looking for that policeman who sent me the package with his 2 policeman friends too. I dont know the names apologies me.

Can you find out who are they? On the forum or on Facebook? Please...

Thank you very much,

Lets go Cottagers!

You're better off creating a new topic on this, as I'm not sure how many read this thread. I can't help you on your search personally.... good luck.

Hello All!

My name is James. I started playing football (soccer) at the age of 3. Played the usual local leagues and ended up on a travelling team in 6th grade.  That was cool, got to travel around the tri-state area playing squads from different states. 

In high school, I broke several records (scoring, assists, etc.) and was named all-state as a forward. Ah, the glory days.

I started following Fulham when Brian McBride played for them. The Premier League was just becoming televised in the states in my area, and there was a TV channel that had the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, and La Liga games, and even rugby and some cricket. This channel was fantastic.  It's unfortunate that I didn't start following the Premier League earlier, it might have improved my game (hehe).

After we got relegated 4 years ago, I did not follow them as much. Started following them again 2 years ago. I was lucky enough to finally make my way to London where I saw two home matches in April 2017 (Ipswich and Aston Villa). We won both games, and sitting in Johnny Haynes stand that day was the highlight of my 18-day trip.

I am passionate about Fulham, and have lived and died with them in my short 2-decade following. My dream is to one day live in London and become a season ticket holder! :)

Two decades is not a short following James, for many it seems a lifetime.

Sorry for the delay in response (generally, not me), but it's good to have another transatlantic fan on the forum.

Hope your own game is flourishing, but go back a year or to for positive FFC influences!

What part of the States are you from?

The fact that no one answered sort of says it all. Good to see your moniker none the less.

Welcome to the fold B666. Thanks for introducing yourself.

Sorry to hear of your condition, i hope it doesn't deteriorate further, and certainly not quickly if it does.

Hope to see you posting on some of the other topics soon?

Best wishes

   Am in Massachusetts, USA, and like "SirJamesp" I started to follow Fulham FC when Brian McBride joined the club.  It seems like yesterday, despite what the calendar tells.  This year, in January, at last had the opportunity to see a game in person. The was the match against Tottenham, when for over a half Fulham led and it seemed that there was life to the hope of staying up in the Premier.  It was a brutally tough loss, but the folks I met, together in that atmosphere and stadium, made it a brilliant experience.  I look forward to many more years following Fulham FC.  Best.

Hi all,

Irish fan here, 24, been reading the site for about a year now and never had the urge to post but decided it was time.

My story? Pretty simple, dad is a big Villa fan and tried to force them on me so naturally as we watched Fulham Villa back in 2005 as being one of the first times I watched a full 90 I went against him and supported us. Led 3 times in the game and each time we got pegged back. Didn't stop me. Been to the Cottage only a handful of times over the years. Living away it wasn't easy to visit and then went travelling after leaving school. Just finished uni in the UK so hope to make the trip down to London a few times this year.

Welcome!

I think this board is great for people who live in other parts of the UK, or indeed away from the UK, and get to a handful of games each year. Keeps people in touch with the same sort of things discussed down the pub in Putney!

Have we ever introduced ourselves?

Evening All,

Firstly saying hello and a little about myself.   Left the Army in 1990 and whilst playing football (goalkeeper) for Army and then local saturday and sunday leagues, never supported anyone really untill i was invited to a match at Fulham in '94 and was hooked and regulaly went to home and occasional away games, through the redevelopment and then at the Loftus and then finally back to the cottage.  Unfortunatly due to illness I have only attended once through the last 8 years but getting back on  track and hopefully visiting more regulaly now  :54:

Been reading the FOF for a while and whilst viewing the 'discussions' that have been ongoing through the last couple of years, finally decided to throw in my hat and contribute (for what its worth) instead of sitting on the fence :003:

hopefully catch up with you all at some point on the forum.

glad to have you with us, I hope you manage to get a visit to the Cottage in the not too distant future as it'll show that you're getting on the mend?
