    You seem to have missed the biggest fan of all - Tommy Trinder - old time comedian - presenter of "Sunday Night at the London Palladium and, many years ago - Fulham FC chairman. His catchphrase was "you lucky people" Many years ago when Fulham won their FA cup semi-final replay at Maine Road Mr Trinder was wondering around with a big smile on his face saying, non stop - "You Lucky People"

    As good a night that was in Manchester the cup final was a real letdown. Only Alan Slough performed!!

    Oh well, good days.
