The next few weeks could very well determine where Fulham, as a club, are heading.

With a play-off place virtually assured, the club stands on the precipice of a return to top-flight football, a league they graced for man-a-year before, despite valiant attempts in previous seasons, plunging through the relegation trap-door.

Relegation proved a rude-awakening and it has taken the club a while to get to the position where it is now.

After finally finding the right man for the managerial hot-seat, in Slavisa Jokanovic, the chance to shine in the top-flight is something the players all want to grab, a failure to do so could see the vultures swooping down off of the banks of the Thames and plundering the talent in our squad.

One player who has memories of Fulham being in the top flight is Marcus Bettinelli.

Speaking about the challenge the play-offs present, Bettinelli has remarked to the media,

“That`s my aim goal, to not just get to Wembley but the get promoted and that`s the aim for everyone in there.

“We`re a team, we aren`t individuals and yeah the gaffer has brought me in but that isn`t the reason why we`ve won the last four before today and been unbeaten.

“The reason is we`ve stuck together and had difficult games and managed to get through them.

“Winning promotion would mean the world – to have my family there and see all the fans, I know how special this club is and I know the fans want to be back in the Premier League.

“When I was coming through the academy we were in the Premier League and it was a special time and I want to be a part of that and be part of that winning side that takes us back to the top flight.

“It would be amazing to do that at Wembley and that`s our aim but we have a tough couple of games to get there first and we`ll focus on them first.”

Fulham at Wembley? It`s been a long time since that`s been the case.
