Last week, I Was There had you in and around Anfield, experiencing the opening day atmosphere with Reds supporters as Liverpool got their season to a winning start. This week’s version comes in two installments, with this one (above) putting you on the banks of the Thames as Fulham hosted London rivals Arsenal on Saturday at Craven Cottage.
Opened in 1896 and seating just under 26,000, Craven Cottage stands in stark contract to Arsenal’s home, the 60,000-seat Emirates Stadium that opened just seven years ago. Fulham fans, however, have come to consider the Cottage’s cozy confines as endemic to the club, its retention a point of concern when the team was sold this summer.
On Saturday, Fulham’s home debut turned out to be a poor one, with Arsenal taking three points out of the Cottage. As you’ll see in the video, above, not everybody in attendance was unhappy with the result.
