I thought I ought to move on from the gloating just to balance out my karma ahead of the Villa game. Only spoken to a couple of Chelsea fans since and they were both genuine fans and decent blokes so I've been feeling a little bit guilty (though, with Drogba and Ballack both doing pretty good impressions of spoilt 7 year olds, not for very long).
Anyway, over at Friends of Fulham LBNo11 has just started a series of posts that will make Henry Shrimpton's “Foundation History of Fulham Football Club” available for the first time online. This should be a fascinating read about the very early days of the club. I recently bought Morgan Phillips' "From St Andrew’s to Craven Cottage" which examines the clubs earliest days as a church cricket and football club and it's eventual rise to something much bigger. Phillips' book (still available here) refers to Shrimpton's work quite a bit so it's a great chance to read the original source.
I'll keep this page updated as each part appears.
