We get to welcome Luton Town to the Cottage for a 3 o’clock kickoff
One of our dear departed friends, Don Hymel (HatterDon), would have loved this fixture, Don was an American who started his love for football while he was based in the UK serving in the USAF. He started going to Luton home games, hence “Hatter”, but came to Fulham because of the American players.
Don helped found fulhamusa.com and was a regular contributor to FoF in the “early days” and he is much missed on both forums, whatever the result this games for you Don.
Our players who were away on international duty had decent games, Raúl scored a couple in Mexico’s 3-3 draw with Uzbekistan. Bobby De Cordova-Reid scored a penalty for Jamaica against Haiti. Harry Wilson had an impressive game for Wales against Latvia winning a penalty and a last ditch assist for a 2-0 win. New boy, for us anyway, Timothy Castagne was involved in both Belgium games against Azerbaijan and Estonia. João Palhinha played in Portugal’s 0-1 over Slovakia and was an unused sub in their 9-0 win over Luxembourg.
our recent record against Luton is 2 wins (one of them 7-0), 0 losses and 2 draws
Assuming no injuries or late returns from international duties, my team would be…
