5 GF, 1 GA
Points Per Match: 3 (1.5 for the Season)

Fulham still hasn't reached the half-way point of the season, but they are already well on their way to safety. Over the past twenty years, the average points for the team that finished safely in 17th place is 38 - and only...

In October, Fulham came out of the international break and immediately suffered their two worst losses of the season. An early red card against Newcastle prevented Fulham from ever getting into the match before going down 4-1, the first time Fulham...
