The Tanner Report

Yesterday I met up with the supporter who sits behind me and is my closest Fulham friend. We went to the Cup Final in 1975 together. He was pleased with the appointment of Feliks Magath as the Chairman has shown himself to be decisive in his task of avoiding relegation by dismissing all 3 of the [...]

Aqua Shard

There is a saying amongst restaurant reviewers “never trust a place with a great view.” There is another “never accept  an invitation from an owner”. I went against both yesterday when I visited Aqua Shard as guest of one of the two owners, Richard Ward. But first the view. [...]

Student Services

Student Services is the type of film the French do better than anyone. It’s the story of a 19 year old Freshman, Laura ( Deborah Francois), in applied modern languages who gets into financial difficulties. Accordingly she responds to a sexual meeting with an older man Joe (Alain Lauchi) and [...]

The Tanner Report

The essential requirement of being a Fulham supporter is a sense of humour. I have laughed at the gallows humour in the shambles of appointing Felix Magath. One of my clients Gerry has been texting me. He first suggested he should take his tracksuit to the next game to see if he can get appointed. [...]

The Tanner Report

It’s hard to fathom the reasoning of replacing head coach Rene Meulensteen with Felix Magath. Probably owner Shahid Khan is so worried that his investment  is going down the Swanee should Fulham get relegated that he looked for a manager with a record of salvation. Magath comes with a hard [...]

Greens at Duke Street, St. James, was a great favourite of mine in the eighties. Owned by Simon Parker Bowles, it epitomised the elegant English fish restaurant but was always more fun than Wiltons or Bentleys. It certainly was not cheap but I took the view that I would pay a subscription if it [...]

The Tanner Report

We produced a decent performance but no points and its the latter, not the former, that is going to prove significant. We twice took the lead, but a careless challenge by Reither in the dying minutes resulted in a penalty and no points. We were encouraged that this selection lasts the whole game [...]

Fiorentina file

Last night Fiorentina reached the final of the Italian Cup after beating Udinese 2-0. We will play the winners of Roma and Napoli. Although your FA cup has declined in status it does have more tradition than ours, which I would compare to the League Cup. It is also seeded. Fiorentina had to [...]

Best Western

After two nights I was not sorry to leave the small ” superior” room at the Mercure for a much larger, cheaper one at the Best Western next door. I complimented the barman on the service at the Mercure, but this did not compensate for its dreary rooms and common areas. It has too much [...]

The Tanner Report

This was one of the most bizarre games I have seen in the years I have followed Fulham. Manchester United dominated possession totally but few would begrudge Fulham their draw; Fulham only had 3 chances but should have scored from all of them, not just the two they did; United threw in cross after [...]
