    Mike, I'm missing it--why is this not a good move? (I'm sure there's a good reason but I can't figure it out.)

    10 years ago a Fulham fan was killed by Gillingham fans.

    Derby away marked the 10th anniversary of the death of Matthew Fox and you could describe the emotion on that away day. Many of the 'old boys' were out that day and even Foxy's father made it out. See here:

    Thank you for the info. I know the incident had happened but I did not know it was against Gillingham.

    No worries Dave! It was a good friend of mine (Gadders) good mate and Derby away showed how much that incident meant to the Fulham community, especially those in their 30's and 40's who were watching Fulham when Fulham only could pull in 5,000 a match.

    I'm confused. That link goes to a blank news article, and when I follow a link called "Gills announce preseason friendlies" it doesn't say anything about Fulham.

    I'm confused too, Josh. The article was there when I clicked, although it was only one paragraph long. Maybe you just missed it?

    Fulham must of told Gillingham to take it down as FFC have yet to announce any of their preseason friendlies. It was there...I swear!

    Well it is certainly gone now. I wonder how busy the telephone lines were at the Fulham offices today?
