    I'm traveling to London the end of October and want to get tickets for the Wigan match. Could someone tell where the best place is to get tix (if it's somewhere other than the club site)and where the visiting supporters sit so I don't buy a ticket in the Wigan Section. Thanks!

    Did you ever get any response (PM)? I'll be trying the same thing in early Dec for the Liverpool match and I would love some info, from one RSL fan to another.

    Hi, I had fulham season tickets last year.

    Visitors sit in the one labelled "neutral stand" on the seating plan.

    The match will likely get to the general sale, where you can purchase in the first couple of days and probably get it. Keep an eye on the ticket selling for other big matches in the fall to get an idea. Last year, I remember Liverpool sold out, but not before it went on to general sale. The club website is really good with the ticket postings, so follow up on release dates there.

    There's no way you can get stuck with the away fans as long as you buy your tickets through Fulham. That's true of any English club, as far as I know from my couple dozen matches over there. For my part, the best places to sit at Craven Cottage are the middle of the Johnny Hanes Stand (E/EL, F,FL) or the Hammersmith End (where the loudest home fans sit). You might think, because they are the most expensive, that the Riverside Stand seats would be the best, but they are not. I made the mistake of getting seats just behind the benches for last year's season-concluding match v. Arsenal; it was like a funeral up there. No chanting, no singing, just a bunch of posh friends of the Chairman, or so it seemed. Put me with the passionate fans in the cheap(er) seats on the other side of the stadium any day.

    And, having been to Old Trafford, Emirates, Upton Park, Stamford Bridge, City of Manchester Stadium, Griffen Park, and some others that fall from memory, Craven Cottage is by far my favorite. It feels like an English football ground ought to feel. It's hard to put into words. Go and enjoy!

    Think I'll be okay getting Under-21 tickets for a couple of 21 year olds?

    I enjoyed White Hart Lane a lot the one time I visited there.

    Like Craven Cottage, it has a historic feel to it, and the seats are very very close to the action.

    It's a real pity so many of these grand old grounds are being torn down and replaced by comfortable, but sterile, new ones.

    Hopefully, though, Craven Cottage is with us for many years to come.

    Be careful when buying the tickets online because the seating charts are "upside down". So it may seem you are buying a front row seat when it is actually the last seat in the back, and vice versa.

    I thought I was going to be 10-14 rows back, but then it turned out I was in the fourth row and was at eye level with the player's waists. Not horrible, but a little low... I suggest at least ten rows back. All the seats are really intimate since it is a small stadium.
