The Fulham Latest Football News

  • Fri, 29 May 2020 16:00:18 +0000: Slavisa Jokanovic: 'Euro 92 was taken away from us. We were better than Denmark' - Fulham | The Guardian

    The former Fulham manager on the day 28 years ago that Yugoslavia were thrown out of the Euros and why he still wants to keep going

    “They’re sad memories,” Slavisa Jokanovic says. “The current generation of players won’t play this summer but they’ll get the chance next year; we had the Euros taken away from us and never got it back.”

    This Saturday was supposed to be the Champions League final, the club season then giving way to the European Championship. Instead, the 552 footballers who should have been joining national teams across the continent have been left in limbo, denied perhaps the best days of their lives. For most, at least it’s not for long; for those 20 men, it was forever.

  • Fri, 01 May 2020 10:40:31 +0000: Championship makes plan to hold play-offs even if season not completed - Fulham | The Guardian
    • Contingency is to promote Leeds and West Brom automatically
    • One-off play-offs could be played on neutral turf with no fans

    The English Football League’s preferred contingency for promotion from the Championship if the season cannot be completed as normal would be to promote Leeds and West Brom, who are clear in first and second place, and to play the play-offs as per current positions to determine the final spot.

    The play-off semi-finals would see Fulham face Preston and Brentford take on Nottingham Forest and could be played as one-off ties at neutral venues behind closed doors, rather than the usual two-legged affairs.

  • Fri, 10 Apr 2020 17:00:50 +0000: 'He had an aura about him': the day Michael Jackson visited Fulham - Fulham | The Guardian

    On 10 April 1999 the King of Pop turned up and Fulham’s players were not dressed for the occasion when he came in after the match

    On 10 April 1999, a little under two years since their takeover by Mohamed Al Fayed, Fulham were a third-tier club being propelled remorselessly upwards, running away with the league title – they were 16 points clear, with seven games to go – inspired by Kevin Keegan and rocket-fuelled by their owner’s chequebook.

    Still, Keegan apart they were short of superstars. Their record transfer and most famous player was Chris Coleman – at £2.1m his was the highest fee paid by a third division club, a record beaten only when Sunderland signed Will Grigg 21 years later. The Welsh centre-back was a fine defender but not exactly box office, though they also had the Belgium international Philippe Albert, another centre-back, on loan from Newcastle. Hugh Grant, whose most successful film, Notting Hill, would be premiered in Leicester Square later that month, stood alone as their most famous fan. And then Michael Jackson turned up.

  • Wed, 26 Feb 2020 23:04:20 +0000: Championship roundup: Mitrovic leads Fulham back into third place - Fulham | The Guardian
    • Serb’s header sinks Swansea and ropes in Forest
    • Barnsley and Wigan secure timely wins at the bottom

    Aleksandar Mitrovic left it late to ensure Fulham maintained their promotion challenge with a 1-0 win against Swansea, having missed a penalty minutes earlier.

    The Serbia striker connected with Aboubakar Kamara’s right-wing cross four minutes into injury time to deliver his side’s first win in four games and boost their hopes of breaking into the top two. But a few minutes earlier it appeared as though he would be the villain when he was denied from the spot by the goalkeeper Freddie Woodman after Neeskens Kebano had gone down under a challenge from Connor Roberts.

  • Fri, 21 Feb 2020 23:35:38 +0000: Wayne Rooney marks 500th game with Panenka in Derby's draw with Fulham - Fulham | The Guardian

    The Fulham manager Scott Parker saluted his former England team-mate Wayne Rooney after Derby’s captain marked his 500th English league appearance with a Panenka penalty in a 1-1 draw at Pride Park.

    Rooney was the centre of attention and he did not disappoint in a more advanced role, controlling the game with measured passes and dangerous set plays. Parker acknowledged Rooney’s influence when he said: “He’s had a massive impact since he’s been here, it’s no surprise Derby’s upturn in form has coincided with Wayne coming to the club.
