Fan's Eye View: Fulham

Well the 2-0 at home to Everton was a breath of fresh air after some abysmal performances, but in a season where you stuff Newcastle 4-1 in their own back yard you can't really look any further than that. Try blaming the ref for that one Graeme!

And the worst?

My goodness, how long have you got? I think the effortless lunchtime 2-0 defeat at home to Blackburn has to be up there. What a load of rubbish that was!

Who was your best player last season?

Papa Bouba Diop was class as was Edwin Van Der Sar. But my hero was Brian McBride. He was left out for most of the season, did not moan once and then came in for the last 10 or so games, scored some great goals and was vital to our Premiership survival. What a top professional!

Who was the most under-rated?

I think everyone took some stick at one time or another. Last season for Fulham was not one for under-rating anyone as we were really bad at times.

And the worst player?

Zat Knight was awful for the majority of it but then got called up to the England squad. I am still trying to work it out myself.

What was the most memorable moment?

Cookies [Manager Chris Coleman] reaction to Boa's [Morte] third goal against Pompey. A massive match for us was sealed in injury time and Cookie almost outshouted the supporters when Boa tucked it away!

Funniest moment, if any?

My funniest moment was a non-Fulham one actually. Graeme Souness all but blaming the referee for [Kieron] Dyer v [Lee] Bowyer made me laugh out loud!

Whos was the best individual performance against you?

Chelsea were pretty ruthless against us at the Cottage - Arjen Robben, what a player!

Best set of fans, besides your own?

The Norwich fans! We stuffed them 6-0 on the last day which sent them down, but they carried on their party in their thousands and even joined in the chant of "easy, easy" with us! Top supporters.

Best chant?

"I've never felt more like having a wank, than when Im watching Steed Malbranque! (sorry, all the others are boring)".

Which ground is your favourite to visit and why?

Norwich because we always win there!

What improvements need to be made this season?

Defending was our major weakness last season. Even with one of the world's best goalkeepers we were still shipping in goals at the back.

Individual with most to prove?

Zat Knight. He had a good couple of seasons when we were at Loftus Road but last season was a real bump back down to earth for him.

Which game are you most looking forward to?

The one in which we notch up our 41st point.

Which of your young players has impressed you?

Liam Rosenior. Pick him for Germany 2006 Sven, England have never won the World Cup without a Fulham player in the team!

If money was no object which player or manager would like to see at your club?

Ronaldinho. Some of the stuff he does takes your breath away. He will be able to latch on to one of those overhit Zat Knight free-kicks and make Zat look like Pele!

What would you consider to be a good season?

Winning the League would be a good season

How would you sum up your manager?

Wears his heart on his sleeve, we all love him. The jury is STILL out on his tactics but he is learning with every game. First Welshman to Manage a team to the Premiership title? Possibly not.

If you had to put a £1m bet on where your team finishes, where would you say?
