There’s only one F in Fulham
The Fulham Fanzine
As regular visitors to the TOOFIF site, most will be aware that this is all very much a one man band operation, and is constantly being tweaked, updated and hopefully improved. the warts and all approach means that daft errors creep in and I'm blind to typos half the time so if you spot wobblies. pleae (see what I mean?) drop me a line. Apologies to PayPal purchasers of the Book, the confirmation made it appear that you'd subscribed to five copies of the Mag, no fear you bought the Book, the message was a daft oversight, all correct now.
Using the cliché the world of business loves so much, "our business statement" is to be unlike any other Fulham site (or any other football site for that matter). We certainly weren't going down the messgae board route and we never intended to do Match Reviews.
Having said that, before the old site was discontinued, there was a full Match Report for every game and since the re-launch during last season and the further refresh for this Premier League season, a sort of review has been attempted.
These reviews were sometimes borrowed from elsewhere in cases where myself or any of my buddies didn't attend. At present, the last couple of matches appeared on the Biased Match reports page and earlier games were on the Old Match Reviews page. That format is obviously unwieldy so over the next weeks I'll make a page for each match and each will include full stats of our history of results with the relevant opposition. The Old Match reviews are renamed 'Match Reviews from 2017 to 2018 Season' and I'll probably insert a page dedicated to THAT Final.
Why not send in your own match impressions, as biased as you like!

A little info about the forthcoming TOOFIF book
This fan’s-eye view covers the most dramatic 30 years in Fulham FC’s history, during which London’s oldest professional football club plumbed the depths before embarking on a remarkable renaissance.
David Lloyd, the TOOFIF editor has tracked the whole 30-year rollercoaster journey of the Fall and Rise and Fall and Rise of Fulham Football Club since the devasting deterioration of the 1980s, the gradual resurgence, decline and the wonderful last two seasons.
This side bar contains links to Individual Match Reviews, at present the upcoming match will contain a small pre-amble and will also show Fulham's history of results against that opposition.
The section will contain a link to every League and Cup fixture, so far I have added links to every game as scheduled, up to the away fixture at Turf Moor on January 12 2019.
Please note the grey links are inactive Lihjt Brown for cup games), once the pre-amble and stats have been created and added to the non-active pages, the button colour will change to Green for League fixtures and Brown for Cup games, the page can then be accessed. Once the game has been played, a review will be added withing 24 hours hopefully.

.2 The first big test against City is out of the way, now we have to face another tough proposition
Date: Sunday, 16 September 2018 Written by: billp TOOFIF
Another day, another challenge
It's another case of not crying over spilt milk really, that last result was a disappointment but not really a huge surprise against an excellent City, now we have to focus on the home game against Watford.
The main thing is that we supporters (and obviously the team) must not be complacent about this next game, make no mistake the challenge will be just as challenging if in a different way.
Watford are flying, they are physical but they also play a quick pressing game so it's important that our lads are at their best. Given that we are in the early stages of our Premier League existence and that so many new players are being tested in a very tough league, the next half dozen games could be a nail biting period for the faithful.
Personally, given everything that has happened recentky, with so many new players arriving and that Fulham are now playing at the highest domestic level, I wasn't really expecting miracles. Also, when one considers the way we started in the last two seasons, we have begun slowly and improved as those seasons progressed. I reckon that will the our message for this season, we have to keep the faith. Slav will, no doubt, sort it, we have the makings of a pretty decent squad, all we have to do is fend off the wolves, not the Wanderers! (the rumour mill buzzing around Mitro already has him going to Fulham's second club) and surely the results will come!
