Fulham’s first game of the 2009-2010 season will at the scene of one of our most memorable triumphs in recent years. We’ll be travelling down to Portsmouth, who we beat to stay in the top flight two seasons ago, to open our campaign on August 15.

Our start and finish to the season looks pretty horrible. We will be welcoming Chelsea to the Cottage in August, although this game is likely to be shifted back to Sunday 22 August should we progress through the preliminary rounds of the Europa League.  I should imagine the police are delighted by that prospect.

For the third time in as many years, we will play Tottenham on Boxing Day – this time at home.

Ridiculous Premier League rules mean we can’t publish the fixtures ourselves, so here’s a link to the list. Please not that all these fixtures will probably be moved around everywhere, subject to European commitments and TV preferences.
