History
  Formed by a group of church-goers in 1879, the name Fulham was adopted in 1888 and the club had various home addresses before settling in at their current Craven Cottage base in 1896. The Cottagers entered the Football League in 1907 and had to wait over 40 years before securing their top-flight place, spending three seasons in Division One before a return the Second Division. Their second spell in the First Division was more successful. Talisman Johnny Haynes, who made 594 league appearances for the club between 1952 and 1970 and earned 56 England caps, helped Fulham survive at the top for the majority of the 1960s. Legendary figures Bobby Moore, George Best and Rodney Marsh were signed by the club in the mid-1970s, but even though their combined talents could not bring about a return to the main stage Fulham soon gained a worthy reputation for their attractive style of play. The 1980s and 1990s proved testing and Fulham's league status was threatened before new chairman Mohamed Al Fayed financed a staggering revival. The Harrods owner's dreams came true in 2001 when Fulham took the First Division by storm to secure promotion to the FA Premier League.
