Fulham started the league campaign with a useful win against Portsmouth yesterday. Pompey are a hard team to beat at their place, although we did get a vital win there last year just when we needed it.
The goal itself was lucky, but I’m not going to complain about that. The main thing is that Fulham didn’t concede. The Whites haven’t won on the first day of the season since 2003, and the past three years have lost the opening game, so as a morale boost this is an important result.
