    Fulham Football Club (also known as The Cottagers or The Whites), is a professional association football club based in Fulham, West London, England. Fulham were formed in 1879 as Fulham St Andrew's Church Sunday School F.C., founded by worshipers (mostly adept at cricket) at the Church of England on Star Road, West Kensington (St Andrew's, Fulham Fields). Fulham's mother church still stands today with a plaque commemorating the team's foundation. They won the West London Amateur Cup in 1887 and, having shortened the name from Fulham Excelsior to its present form in 1888, they then won the West London League in 1893 at the first attempt.

    Fulham started playing at their current ground at Craven Cottage in 1896, their first game against now defunct rivals Minerva. Fulham are one of the oldest established clubs in southern England currently playing professional football, though there are many non-league sides like Kent side Cray Wanderers who are several decades older. The club gained professional status on 12 December 1898, the same year that they were admitted into the Southern League's Second Division. They were the second club from London to turn professional, following Arsenal, then named Royal Arsenal 1891.

    After suffering relegation to The Championship in 2013, Fulham have been on a road to recovery and were promoted to the Premier League on 26 May 2018, by winning 1–0 in the 2018 EFL Championship play-off Final against Aston Villa. Fulham fans consider their main rivals to be Chelsea, followed by Queens Park Rangers. They also have rivalries with other London clubs, including Brentford and Crystal Palace.

    First game in front of United fans since the 2-0 City match with THAT McTominay goal.

    Full strength, put on a good performance for those of us who are fortunate to get tickets, and we secure second. Ole can then do whatever he needs to get us ready for the final with the Wolves match.

    Can't bring myself to care about this game too much, just no injuries and a sensible amount of minutes for our key players.

    2-1 Utd, Fulham are shite.

    Bring David back, start Rashford on the LEFT.

    You've made your point Ole,

    Just don't be twats, win it and confirm second place.

    I'd give Pogba a go in midfield with Rashford on the left.

    If we don’t pull ourselves together and smash these fodder I’ll be so angry. But it’ll be nothing compared to the nausea of losing to Liv.

    I reckon barring injuries the cup final team plays in this and then full rotation for Wolves

    Couldn’t give a feck. We’re gonna scrape over the line and drag ourselves to a CL finish kicking and screaming once again.

    You know its going to happen.

    We've got nothing to play for in the league and neither do they. Fully expect Fulham to win.
    Fully, and I'm not even joking.
    Wolves might beat us too

    Great to have supporters in attendance for a match. March 8th v Man City the last time and hopefully next season will be a return to a full capacity Old Trafford.

    Not sure what to expect from this group of players when they weren't overly bothered about getting a result against their rival Liverpool. On the flip side will Fulham be for this match now that they are officially relegated?

    United still need 3 points from these final two games to secure 2nd place and if United don't win this match its doubtful that will happen as I'd expect plenty of rotation for the Wolves and another defeat there.

    We have second place to play for now.

    Finishing third would be a failure beyond belief.

    Same team as tonight but with Rashford left, Greenwood right and Pogba in the middle with Fred or McTominay.

    We must win this game against a very poor team. Wolves should be the game we rest some players but winning momentum is just as important when going into a big final.

    3-1

    After the debacle, you still want McFred in midfield?

    You are a very nice person

    Be really good to return to winning ways with Maguire out ahead of the final.

    He's going to be such a miss for that game if he doesn't make it. Need to put together as much as a winning streak as we can between now and then.

    Henderson, AWB, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw, McT, Pogba, Greenwood, Bruno, Rashford, Cavani.
    Easy 4-1 win. Give Fred and Tuanzebe 45 minutes.

    Against Wolves: De Gea, Williams, Bailly, Tuanzebe, Telles, VdB, Matic, Amad, Mata, Elanga, Martial (if he comes back).
    Leave the starting 11+Greenwood at home to prepare and rest for the EL final.
    Hannibal and Shoretire from the bench.

    We need to act our fecking act together and quickly! That’s 3 defeats in our last 4 games, need to get back to winning ways and gain some momentum leading up to the final.
