The Fan Club

Our fan-club was recently founded by a number of friends who became fans and/or sympatizers of Fulham since when, 12 years ago, the oldest London professional football team risked to slip away in the abyss of the non-league football. Once that we have created a web-site, other members joined us.

Obvioulsly the major part of our fellows country-men keen on English football tend to support the Premier League top teams; nevertheless, we are proud to say that some of our current members, although fans of some of the top teams (Arsenal, Aston Villa, Manchester United, Liverpool; no, not Chelsea, I have said top teams!) could not but fall in love with Fulham as they have made their first Cottage experience, and since then they are . . . torned by two lovers!
Actually, since 1998 we have had many Cottage experiences (that always included a couple of pre and/or post match beers at the Goldel Lion) that we have tried and described in our web-site.
And once that we have come back home, to quote Poet Wordsworth,

"(. . .) in lonely rooms, and 'mid the din
Of towns and cities, I have owed to them (these Cottage experiences)
In hours of weariness, sensations sweet,
Felt in the blood, and felt along the heart;
And passing even into my purer mind,
With tranquil restoration:--feelings too 30
Of unremembered pleasure: such, perhaps,
As have no slight or trivial influence
On that best portion of a good man's life,
His little, nameless, unremembered, acts
Of kindness and of love".

Our aim is to spread the passion for the Cottagers in our Country and/or to permit our fellows country-men to live the same beautiful experience".
