Craven Cottage is one of my favourite away grounds. The walk from Putney Bridge underground station to the ground has to be one of the pleasantest approaches to a football ground in this country. I enjoy going there even when we don’t win. And when we win, like we did in 2015, the game is lodged in my brain as one of my favourites.
I won’t be walking alongside the River Thames today, hoping for a good game. I’ll be looking on my laptop, dreading another loss. At least nobody will see me if I’m crying by the end of the game.
Whatever happens, I feel sad that I’m never again going to be in a stadium watching Jude Bellingham play in a Birmingham City shirt. I hope that his move will work out well for him.
I’ll include some pictures from 2015 to cheer myself up.
