    I know this vid from last year and I wish they would make another one for this final match. But wouldn't you agree that it's still powerful and appropriate for this moment(minis a couple of old faces)?

    My forecast: dark early when Everton score through Cahill. Brightening up early in the second half when Dempsey equalizes.

    The 1-1 result means a 100% chance of Europa Cup beginning in the summer at Craven Cottage.

    Won't be in the chatroom -- church duty -- but I know everyone will represent.

    COYW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    still makes the hair on my neck stand up.

    Even better, this year it's for different reasons.

    Come

    On

    You

    Whites

    Good thing I go to church on Saturdays, I'll be listening to Gentleman Jim Sunday morning and hoping he's waxing ecstatic about Erik Nevland's brace or, well, Fulham getting points.

    I still remember stating at the beginning of the season that the goal of the season was to avoid fighting for relegation by this time of the year - finish 14th and I'm a happy fan. This is way above and beyond what I expected and you know what? To hell with the critics, you get a chance for Europe, you take it!

    Take all the points, dear Fulham players, and take it all the way to glory in Europe!

    Incidentally, we were a few minutes away from a draw at Everton's place before a goal was scored shortly after Chris Baird entered the game. I think the key will be to keep Baird away from the field (I type with a tounge in my cheek). But seriously, if Fulham's defense can shut down Louis Saha - and why not considering they've shut a hell of a lot better strikers than Saha down this season - then I think they got a great chance at winning. Just make sure the ball goes INTO the net and not off the posts like last game.

    Lawro picks us to win and Tottenham to lose. Bad sign?

    Nah, I see a 1-1 draw making the Anfield result irrelevant. I'm excited for this one with the implications, but at the same time sorry to season this amazing season come to a close.

    You said it Ag, what a great ride. The good news is that (Europe willing) the offseason will be only a couple of months.

    I will be around these parts Sunday morning, but I won't do the chatroom as the Whites have an awful time winning whenever I drop in there. Not about to jinx things now. Will be looking for GJ and/or pirate feed.

    1-0 Fulham (Kamara 21')

    Best Season Ever!

    BTW American Mike, I notice you really liked my pics and analysis of the Kamara goal, which I originally posted on the TIFF (I'm Mike H on TIFF). A lot of hits on the pics on my photobucket account from FulhamUSA. ;-)

    Telling me not to worry about a Fulham outcome, or a related one, is like telling me to speak Chinese.

    No predictions, other than it's better to have the mathematical inside track than to be in Spurs shoes. Actually, that would really be a bad day, if I were ever in Spurs' shoes, or Spurs anything.

    Let's go balls out and kick their asses.

    A little disturbing picture that, but I get your drift.

    GET SOME TOFFEES!

    The loss notwithstanding...I'm listening to GJ and the announcement of the Liverpool/Spurs score at the Cottage and I must admit...it's getting a little misty in the Mancini living room.

    A disappointing result but a wonderful season that concludes with European qualification.

    With every team that had something to play for losing today, it was quite possibly the most anti-climatic season finale across the league.

    BUT, negativity aside...

    FULHAM ARE GOING TO EUROPE. :banana: :banana:

    holy crap.

    I dont think its hit me yet...

    Not a single Fulham fan who cared about todays result...grown men getting lumps in their throat because of what we accomplished. Just sublime.
