What’s the sign of an intimidating ground? A massive stand packed with thousands of abusive fans right behind the goal? A bus ride from the station that needs a police escort? Or a local neighbourhood that would make the Sun Hill estate blush?
Either way, you’d probably hazard a guess that owning your own section for ‘neutral fans’ isn’t one of them.
Of course, you’ll find no Ultras or a fearsome group of old boys at Craven Cottage, merely a warm welcome from the Premier League’s favourite tourist hot spot. From having a warm cup of tea along the River Thames behind the stand at half time to a walk through Bishops Park at the end of the match, everything about the Fulham experience is geared towards taking photos, rather than making noise.
