ESPN.com: Fulham is everybody's second favorite team.

Flattering piece written mainly from an American perspective. Author David Hirshey seems to love everything about the club, from the attractive style of play, to its tradition, to Martin Jol's resemblance to a stereotypical dock worker. "With its quaint little ground and strong working-class ethos, Fulham is a throwback to the days of terraces, Bovril and spending wind-swept games huddled along the banks of the River Thames. And yet, despite seeming to fit all the traditions of English soccer -- densely-packed stands hugging a narrow, damp pitch, perfect for the long ball and leg-snapping tackles -- the Cottagers just happen to be playing some of the most entertaining soccer in the Prem."
