Fulham kick off their second year in the Premiership at home to Bolton who they beat 3-0 at The Cottage and obtained a 0-0 draw up at Bolton.
We then have games against Middlesborough(a), West Ham(h) and West Brom(a), so not such a baptism of fire as in last season when we had to start away at Man U. This year we will welcome Man U to Craven Cottage upon Loftus in October.
Rather nicely our initial clashes with each of the London clubs are all at home so we don't play away in London until West Ham on Boxing Day.
The Saturday after Christmas we are at home to Man City which could be fun for the visiting Manager and on New Years Day we are at home to West Brom.
Although Fulham may not have done as well as expected last year they now know that most of the Premiership teams are beatable. The most testing run could be the 8 games starting with Man U on October 19th and the results willl show whether or not the squad has improved since last season.
