In the days after that glorious afternoon at Wembley Stadium, an afternoon where Fulham finally achieved promotion back to the top-flight of English football, one thought dominated my mind.
I was anxious as to whether the club would be prepared to make a go of life in the top-flight and surprise a few people or whether they’d be prepared just to survive and keep their top-flight status for another season.
Thankfully, it appears to be the former.
Those who run the club have obviously decided that if a job is worth doing it is worth doing well and have ensured that Slavisa Jokanovic has been given the tools to do the job he is, clearly, quite capable of.
At the time of writing and with the possible acquisition of Alfie Mawson still to come, we stumbled across the following Twitter posting, which leaves everybody in no doubt as to how serious the clubs’ hierarchy are of taking Fulham to another level:
2018/19 spending of promoted clubs in Europe's top 5 leagues:
F. Dusseldorf €5.6m
Rayo V €3.6m

It kind of brings a lump to your throat doesn’t it!
