Preview from the pre-match Home Page
Our first ever game against Hull City was staged at the Cottage on the third of September 1907 and was a Division 2 fixture, unfortunately for the Super Whites, Hull ran out victorious by one goal to nil that time. Is that not a familiar feeling?
Ther last meeting between our clubs took place at their home ground on the 30th of December 2017 in the Championship, on this occasion the match ended in a two all draw.
Our record since that first contest consists of 94 meetings. Out of these these games, Fulham have won 31, we've drawn 28 and lost 35 so the balance is slightly tilted in Hull's favour over the years.
"Hull City was founded in 1904, playing friendly games at The Boulevard (the home of the Hull Rugby League Club), Anlaby Road Cricket Ground and Dairycoates. A year later they were elected to the Second Division of the Football League.
Whilst still playing occasional games at the rugby and cricket grounds, City also moved to a new home on Anlaby Road where it remained until 1941 when wartime games saw a brief return to The Boulevard. City finished their first league season in fifth place and remained in the top half of the table for much of the period up to the First World War."

We've witnessed some Rubbish, awful, rubbish, shocking, ghastly, spineless, clueless, idiotic, careless, stupid, gutless performances over the years but this one was down there with the worst, even some of those during the Mad German's tenure.
One might excsuse Joe Bryan, Mitro and Harrison Reed but as for the rest of them, I'd sign a contract with Pedigree Pet Foods and send the whole sorry lot of them down there for slaughter, except that would be cruel to the animals that had to eat the end result!
The following is a detailed report, listing all the high points of our performance.
