Following yesterday’s article on the debacle of Monday night at Craven Cottage we today received a response from Fulham Football Club by way of an email from Supporter Relations Manager Tommy Guthrie. We are posting the response below in full and unedited (with the only exception being my personal order reference number and personal email address which I have redacted). We will then go through each point in their email - as we have by return email to Mr Guthrie - challenging the falsehoods and excuses that have been offered and demanding that they, as a club and a business, accept responsibility for the events of Monday night.
This morning I wrote to Fulham Football Club to express my anger and disappointment at the organisation of last night’s friendly international between Ghana and Brazil. The ticketing system and the non-existent crowd control so badly needed outside of the ground shortly before kick-off were nothing short of ludicrous.

Where to begin? Mark Hughes? Martin Jol? Europe via the back door? Off-season? What off-season?
First things first: Mark Hughes always felt like someone else’s manager. He did his best to look interested, but there were always undertones there, like he was doing us a favour by managing us: “look, it’s me, Mark Hughes. The Mark Hughes. At Fulham!” When he left to broaden his horizons or to find himself (in Dubai), well, nobody was that surprised or disappointed. At the time of writing he remains unemployed, with all the good jobs having been taken. The job Hughes thought he might get went to Alex McLeish!
