Fulham 4 – 1 Juventus


Classic underdog story. (Click here)

Fulham should be very proud.

Fulham has been my second team for the last few seasons, and I like the old-worldness about them. A proper football club.

Passion without bitterness. A nice, controlled passing game, but enough aggression and tough-tackling to please the defender / defensive midfielder that I have always been. The ability, but rarely the intent to play long-ball, sensible long-term buying and selling. From the photos, probably the most quaint, charming, beautiful stadium in the Premiership.

Danny Murphy, Bobby Zamora, Brede Hangeland, Mark Schwarzer, Clint Dempsey (what a wonder-goal!), Damien Duff, Aaron Hughes. Honest professionals all. Remember, not honest cloggers; all of them have a substantial amount of skill and savvy to go with the graft.

And who would not like Uncle Woy? Dignified, upright, double-chinned Englishman; a lot of knowledge and very little malice; a complete absence of narrow-mindedness; and an open world-view.

Fulham should be very proud.
