Decked out in their new, all-white home strip, a near full-strength Fulham team successfully got both their Europa League campaign and their 2011/12 season off to a winning start with a comfortable victory over Nes Soknar Itrottarfelag Runavik at the Cottage last night – with goals from Damien Duff, Danny Murphy and Andy Johnson giving Martin Jol’s side a 3-0 advantage going into the away leg against the Faroese part-timers.
