Fulham are on the road for the third game in a row on Tuesday night, although the trip to Elland Road will be far cry from the notoriously difficult to access and half-empty stadiums encountered in both Wycombe and Reading, you would imagine.
So, the Championship is back for 2017/18 and Fulham kick off their season against seasoned opposition in Norwich City. The Canaries were expected to push for promotion last season and will be determined to make up for lost time in this campaign.
The signing of Lucas Piazon on another season long loan from Chelsea was welcomed by the majority of fans this week - especially across social media where Piazon is well loved for his passion.
It was confirmed last week, after much speculation, that Scott Malone was off permanently to Huddersfield for a fee estimated to between £3million and £5million. Jack J Collins looks back at the statistics of Malone's season at Craven Cottage to see quite whether we've scored an own goal in letting him go, or opened the door for an improved replacement.

Well, we've made it this far, and today feels a bit like the 'deep breath before the plunge', to quote from a famous Tolkien trilogy. Two legs against third-placed Reading, and one place at Wembley up for grabs. You don't need me to tell you that the stakes don't really get much higher than this.

Fulham's midfield trio of Kevin McDonald, Stefan Johansen and Tom Cairney, as we’ve pointed out time and time again, are the basis from which the Whites’ success this season has sprung.
