Fulham FC is this week’s team of the week! Fulham is a football club from the Western parts of London, in the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The ‘Cottagers’ play their home matches at Craven Cottage.
The Nordics are very well represented in Fulham. The Norwegian Brede Hangeland came from F.C. Copenhagen in the beginning of 2008 and is a key player in Fulham. Along with his Norwegian team mates Bjørn Helge Riise and Erik Nevland, is this the one team in England with most Norwegians. Fredrik Stoor from Sweden and Finnish player Toni Kallio also joined the club in 2008. And the last addition to the Nordic crew came when Swede David Elm signed for Fulham last month.
Danny Murphy is the team’s captain and Roy Hodgson became their manager last year. Hodgson has a remarkable career behind him as a manager for the Swiss national team, Blackburn and F.C. Copenhagen. Will he manage to lead Fulham further up the table this season?
Fulham is playing Manchester City tomorrow at the City of Manchester Stadium. Do you think the West Londoners will stand a chance?
Make sure not to miss the great experience of seeing a live English football match, and buy tickets to a Premier League match!
