Fulham: All the latest Fulham flavoured news, views, rumours and other assorted bits and bobs

  • Are Fulham the most exciting side in the Premiership? January 18th, 2007 Fulham

    When I think of Fulham, it’s usually a dismal traveling support and uninspired football that springs to mind. However, that may not be the case this season as Fulham are, quite obviously, the most entertaining team on the planet. Why?  Let’s look at the stats from the Fulham’s last half dozen games. 25 goals in […]

  • Kit Parade: U-S-A! January 5th, 2007 Fulham

    Fulham fans can celebrate Craven Cottage’s new status as the American Embassy by snapping up the USA national team shirt. With Clint Dempsey having agreed a move to join Brian McBride and Carlos Bocanegra, and Chris Coleman still keen on Oguchi ‘Gooch’ Onyewu, west London is becoming a home-from-home for exiled Yanks. The retro-style shirt […]

  • Fulham close in on Roma’s Vincenzo Montella January 4th, 2007 Fulham

    Fulham are close to completing a six-month loan deal for Italian striker Vincenzo Montella. The 32-year-old is expected to finalise the move later today. Nicknamed Little Aeroplane in honour of his aviation-themed goal celebration, Montella cost Roma €25 million when they bought him from Sampdoria in 1999. Although he has struggled with injuries in recent […]

  • Fulham ‘keeper cleared of serious injury January 2nd, 2007 Fulham

    I normally have a little whince when there is a horror injury in football, but I’m strong of stomach and watch on largely unflustered. However, that changed yesterday when I screamed like a girl when Antti Niemi fell on his neck and went all wrong-ways. Well, after being aghast at the whole thing, I was thrilled to hear that he’s been released from hospital after doctors cleared him of any spinal injuries…

  • Everton want to swap Lada for Rolls Royce (or at least Simon Davies for Luis Boa Morte) December 4th, 2006 Everton

    Sneaky Everton are apparently trying to con Fulham into swapping Luis Boa Morte (the Cottagers’ skipper and talisman) for Simon Davies (mediocre Welsh midfielder). The Mirror reports that the Toffees want to exchange £8 million-rated Boa Morte for Davies, a player they paid an over-inflated £4 million for last year. You have to wonder whether […]

  • Lord Stevens to name innocent clubs? November 9th, 2006 Arsenal

  • Volzy still loves David Hasselhoff October 25th, 2006 Fulham

    Fulham‘s Moritz Volz has been trying to move away from his reputation as the Hoff’s number one fan. High profile media coverage of his obsession plus the fact that Hasselhoff is now the public face of Fulham’s sponsors Pipex led to Volzy distancing himself from his idol. In his 5 October diary entry, a moody […]

  • Moritz Volz gives himself food poisoning October 21st, 2006 Fulham

    We leave Volzy alone for a couple of weeks and he ends up poisoning himself. According to his latest diary (or should that be diarrhea) entry on the lengendary Volzy.com, a homemade pumpkin and prawn soup disagreed with the Fulham full-back on Tuesday night. He said: "I’m never going through a night like I did […]

  • 10 Most Underrated Players in the Premiership October 17th, 2006 Arsenal

    10 Emanuel Pogatetz (Middlesbrough)If you want commitment and the odd leg-breaking tackle, ‘Mad Dog’ Pogatetz is your man. Middlesbrough’s Austrian defender ‘never, ever gives less than 300%’ in games, according to former Boro coach Steve McClaren. Pogatetz is a versatile defender and can play at centre-half, as he has done this season, or left-back. He’s […]

  • Michael Brown’s nasty tackle on Ashley Cole. The boy’s got form September 25th, 2006 Chelsea

    Fulham‘s Michael Brown was fortunate to escape without a red card after a nasty tackle on Ashley Cole on Saturday (was that an Arsenal fan muttering something about karma?!). It now seems certain he will not face any further action for the challenge. There is no need for a News of the World exclusive a […]

  • Fulham top of the Premier League! September 20th, 2006 Arsenal

Boa Morte’s cheek injury means Fulham knock Charlton off the top […]

  • Miserly Moritz Volz fleeces his Egyptian mate September 13th, 2006 Fulham

    We love a football nutter here at Pies. Barmy Fulham defender Moritz Volz is one of our favourites – probably second only to Ian Holloway, in fact. While some of football’s more compliant characters were partaking in a spot of international football last week, Volzy went on a holiday to Egypt.

  • Fulham’s Jimmy Bullard out for the season with knee injury September 13th, 2006 Fulham

    The Who Ate All The Pies campaign to get Jimmy Bullard into the England squad is over quicker than you can say: "Ouch, Scott. Please get off my knee."

  • Michael Brown’s two footed lunge at Giggs August 29th, 2006 Fulham

    Tis the season for horror tackles and related. Ben Thatcher, a name not known to most before this week. Roy Keane (lord of the horror tackle) in managers job.

  • Is Michael Brown the new Ben Thatcher? August 26th, 2006 Fulham

    I still haven’t seen video footage of Michael Brown’s stamp on Ryan Giggs, but Fulham fans tell me it was bad – although not as bad as Ben Thatcher’s forearm smash. Fergie is certainly pissed off about it. It’s not the first time Brown has been the perpetrator of a dodgy tackle. Is he the […]

  • One to watch: Jimmy Bullard, Fulham August 4th, 2006 Fulham

    Jimmy Bullard is a great midfielder. As Kevin Keegan might say, he’s full of ‘legs and energy’. Don’t know how Wigan let him leave for Fulham, but Chris Coleman is obviously delighted with his new signing. Bullard is also a nutter (not a hardman, just a mad English ‘character’), as this YouTube clip of him […]

  • Moritz ‘Volzy’ Volz’s most excellent website August 2nd, 2006 Fulham

    From Moritz Volz‘s awesomely entertaining website, Volzy.com: ‘Here’s a bit about me – I LOVE Little Britain and Only Fools & Horses. Del Boy is a legend.

  • Fulham’s new kit has thumb holes July 4th, 2006 Fulham

    This season I will mostly not be wearing a football shirt with thumb holes. I repeat, thumb holes. What the hell were the designers at French sports company Airness thinking when they put frickin’ thumb holes in the new Fulham kit? What possible purpose does a thumb hole serve, apart from making a laughing stock […]
