Something we omitted to cover in our round-up of the first half dozen fixtures of the new 2018 / 2019 season, Click Here, related to our first away fixture, the trip to take on Tottenham Hotspur.

We omitted it because we felt it was worthy of a separate article.

That’s because when it comes to playing Tottenham, we won’t be playing the game on the ground Tottenham will be using for the majority of the season.

Instead of playing at the brand new White Hart Lane, Fulham will be playing Tottenham at Wembley, whilst the redeveloped ground is completed.

Now you can look at this in one or two ways.

1 – It gives Fulham another chance to revisit Wembley, meaning that the Cottagers will have played two out of their last three competitive games at the famous stadium, a remarkable feat considering we’d not trodden up Wembley Way since the 1975 FA Cup Final.

Or

2 – We could feel aggrieved at not being the first visiting team to play at what will be one of the best grounds in Europe when it is completed. But perhaps that is tempered by the fact that we should get other opportunities to visit White Hart Lane once we re-establish ourselves in the top-tier of English football.

So, when assessing the situation described and returning to the title of the article, are you aggrieved, happy or not bothered?

  • This one does not bother me at all. I will not view it as a trip to Wembley weather just an away day and, if I’m honest, despite the fact Tottenham will not be used to their new stadium, their record at Wembley is not exactly amazing and it suits our style of play so it gives us a good chance of taking lots of fans and possibly coming home with some sort of a result.

    • Hi Tom a Spurs fan here coming in peace! I would just like to point out that we only lost two ‘home’ games there last season. Wish we were at the ‘New’ Lane sick of bloody Wembley!

  • Sorry to tell you that you will not be taking lots of fans to Wembley, Spurs give about 3500 away tickets at Wembley the same amount as at The Lane and there will be up to 80000 Spurs fans there so not such a great day out, sorry guys

  • It should be a level playing field so spurs should play at the cottage and play the home match later in the year at the new stadium
    Then every team should be satisfied

  • Playing at the new white heart lane could have possibly put extra pressure on spurs to win , which maybe give us a little edge. Just a thought.

  • I agree that the fixtures should have been reversed to play at the Cottage the 2nd week and then at Spurs new ground later in the season.
    Im torn between wanting to visit the new stadium and revisiting the scene of triumph.
    However the atmosphere wont be anything like last month and may disappoint.
    Seems unfair that we are not in a position to take advantage of possible new stadium syndrome.
