This Saturday, Fulham make the trip to the north-west to take on the reigning Premier League title holders, Manchester City.
It is a game that the pundits expect Fulham to lose, but then again is football not a game full of shocks and surprises?
If Fulham can go to the Etihad Stadium and get a result it would be a marvellous achievement, but, just the prospect of facing the champions in their own backyard is something we were dreaming of this time last year.
Fulham may not get a result, but this fixture gives us the perfect opportunity to gauge just how far we’ve come in the last twelve months.
Ahead of the game, we’re giving you the opportunity to predict the result, in our poll, it’ll give us the chance to see if that eternal optimism spirit is alive and well in the Fulham camp.
With the fixture looming large, we’re also able to bring you the names of those chosen to officiate in what should be an entertaining fixture:
Referee – Stuart Attwell
Assistant Referee – Constantine Hatzidakis
Assistant Referee – Richard West
Fourth official – Martin Atkinson
Can the Cottagers pull off a shock and get a result?
That, my friends, remains to be seen.
