There wasn’t much to shout about as a Fulham fan in 2020/21
Five wins, nine goals at home all season and a third relegation in the past decade. The 2020/21 season was certainly one to forget.
However, despite the season being a drab one, there were a couple of moments to remember, and we’re going to look at the three best moments from what was a poor season for the Whites.
Mario Lemina’s goal against Liverpool
Fulham finished 11 points adrift of safety in the end, but at one point it looked as though the Whites would claw their way out of the relegation zone.
Fulham put together a number of impressive results back early 2020, and their win against Liverpool at Anfield looked to be the early knockings of a great escape.
Sadly, this was Fulham’s last win of the season, but no one can deny that there was a huge level of euphoria when Lemina put the Whites ahead against the Merseyside outfit.
Beating QPR in the FA Cup
Fulham don’t do FA Cup runs.
The Whites have never won this competition and they’ve not reached the final in almost 50 years, but this year the competition provided us with one bright moment.
Indeed, after promotion to the Premier League, most Whites supporters probably thought they’d seen the last West London derby for a little while, but as luck would have it, Fulham drew QPR in the FA Cup.
It wasn’t the best game in the world, but a couple of extra-time goals from Bobby Decordova-Reid and Neeskens Kebano secured bragging rights for the Whites against their biggest rivals.
Josh Maja’s brace against Everton
Fulham signed Josh Maja in January to score the goals that would keep the Whites in the division.
On Valentine’s Day, the Whites fell in love with their new striker as he netted twice to earn the London club their first ever win at Goodison Park.
Sadly, these would prove to be Maja’s only league goals from open play for Fulham, but these two goals against Everton certainly had us all excited, even if it was a bit of a false dawn.
