Thoughts
A trip to Fulham's Craven Cottage is always one of the highlights of the season. The ground has a really traditional feel, with the Cottage still found in one corner of the ground.

The new Putney End Stand on the river side of the ground holds the away fans. The allocation is usually the standard 3,000 seats, with the other half of the stand allocated to "neutral" fans - when we're in town this is mostly full of Reds. Smoking is not allowed in the stands at your seat.



Pub Guide and extras
As with many London grounds, many supporters choose to drink elsewhere before getting the tube in. That may be a mistake at Fulham though as there's plenty of decent pubs to choose from. The most popular establishment with many of the RAWK away crew is the Eight Bells outside Putney Bridge tube station. 2-3 seasons back you'd have found Les Dennis hoping for a quiet pint, getting serenaded by a hundred scousers pre-match.

Some of the pubs nearest the ground are designated home supporters only (The Golden Lion, The Cottage), so many fans head across Putney Bridge to the south bank of the Thames where there are plenty of options such as The Dukes Head overlooking the river (20 mins walk).

The boys at TOOFIF recommend The Crabtree on Rainville Road as an excellent place to go for a chat and a pre-match pint with Fulham fans. The Zulu Bar isn't a displaced Birmingham hooligans hang-out but a pub on Fulham High Street formerly known as the Kings Head, which welcomes both home and away fans. There's also an O'Neills on Fulham High Street which is popular with Reds.

Does anyone know how you go about buying tickets in the "neutral half" of the Putney End?
Do you have to buy them on the day from the ground?

How long does it take to get from Euston to the ground via the tube?

I'd say about an hour.

Cheers, looks like the train getting in at 14:00 will be pushing it.
