Games for the weekend 16/09

We get to welcome Luton Town to the Cottage for a 3 o’clock kickoff

Fulham v Luton

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 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…

Fulham v Luton Town

Games for the Weekend 30/04

We welcome Luton Town to the Cottage for our last home game of the season

Fulham v Luton Town

Fulham do like doing things the hard way don’t they? we’re only 1 point from being crowned Champions, 1 goal away from 100 in the season and Mitro still needs a couple to top Guy Whittingham’s record, everything is so painfully close but we still have to wait, welcome to FFC.

It’s a shame that the Luton game has been moved to a Monday evening, wouldn’t it have been better to have the last home game at 3 o’clock on Saturday to give the fans and players a more appropriate time to celebrate the season?
I guess we’ll have to get used not having Saturday kick-offs next season in the Premier League.

Luton are still fighting for a play-off spot, haven’t they had a tremendous, if unexpected season, so this will be, yet again, another tough game, we all know that theres no easy games in the Championship.

Curent form:
Fulham – LLWDL
Luton – DLWWD

Our recent record against Luton is a win and 2 draws.

Assuming no injuries my team would be…

Games for mid-week 23/10

So for another mid-week game at the Cottage we welcome the “Hatters” Luton Town.

Fulham v Luton Town

Well the game against Stoke didn’t go as we’d planned, I guess the unbeaten run had to end sometime and it’s probably no surprise that we lost to the bottom team, how Fulhamish!
One of our American friends HatterDon will have been looking forward to this game, he’s got a soft spot for Luton, and probably whatever the result he’ll enjoy the game.

We really need a result from this game if we want to stay in touch with the teams at the top of the table.
Luton will be a tricky one, they beat Bristol City who were on a 10 match unbeaten run, at the weekend and will be full of confidence, especially if they look at our 1st half performance against Stoke, we can’t play that badly again, can we?
