Review by AFC Bournemouth fan Bob
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
Not been to Fulham before and London isn’t too far from Bournemouth compared to other away games.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
Drove to Richmond, parked in the Old Deer Car park which is a few minutes away from Richmond station, and then District Line Tube to Putney Bridge.
If you got the train, how easy did you find it to make your way to the stadium from the station?
Putney Bridge station is only a 15 minute walk to Craven Cottage through the park along the Thames.
Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?
The Eight Bells looked good but was very full, so we went to The Rocket, the Wetherspoons on the river. It was busy with a mixture of home and away fans. Decent beer and cheap for London!
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
McDonald’s in Putney!
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
Decent view, the posts in the stands do restrict the view for some, but our view was ok.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
Very good, and the early Cherries penalty set the tone in the away end. Home fans were rather quiet though.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?
Very easy – just a 15 minute walk back to the Tube through the park.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
About £80 including an adult and U16 ticket, petrol, parking, Tube, food and a pint. So not bad value overall.
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
Yes. It’s easy to get to, has a good selection of pubs nearby and Craven Cottage has bags of character… A proper ground!
