2013 In Pictures
Wednesday 1 January 2014 14:05
We take a pictorial look back over what has been a hugely eventful 12 months for Fulham Football Club.
(1 / 61)
- Dimitar Berbatov and Alexander Kačaniklić scored the goals as the Whites opened 2013 with a valuable 2-1 win against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.
(2 / 61)
- Stephen Kelly departed in January to join Reading following a three-and-a-half year spell at Craven Cottage.
(3 / 61)

(4 / 61)
- Emmanuel Frimpong made the short switch from North to South-West London as he joined on loan from Arsenal.
(5 / 61)
- Fulham secured an important three points following a comprehensive 3-1 win against London rivals West Ham United. Following two straight defeats, strikes from Berbatov and Hugo Rodallega and a Joey O’Brien own goal saw the Whites return to winning ways in this late January clash.
(6 / 61)
- A busy transfer deadline day saw the arrivals of Eyong Enoh, Stanislav Manolev and Urby Emanuelson at the Club.
(7 / 61)
- Fulham pushed Manchester United all the way in an enthralling clash at the Cottage, but a solitary Wayne Rooney strike proved the difference between the sides.
(8 / 61)
- Popular winger Damien Duff signed a contract extension with the Club.
(9 / 61)
- A sumptuous volley from Berbatov was the deciding factor in a determined 1-0 victory over Stoke City at Craven Cottage in February – a strike which was later voted as our Goal of the Season.
(10 / 61)
- The lads got together to produce a hilarious version of the Harlem Shake, and the video has since had more than four million views on YouTube.
(11 / 61)
- Philippe Senderos commits his future to the Club for another season.
(12 / 61)
- Sascha Riether notches his first goal for the Club as Fulham storm into a 2-0 lead at the Stadium of Light, but Sunderland fought back to earn a point.
(13 / 61)
- Berbatov returned to haunt former club Tottenham Hotspur in March. His 52nd-minute strike claimed Fulham’s first win in the white half of North London in 10 years.
(14 / 61)
- Brede Hangeland ended speculation on his future by putting pen-to-paper on a new two-year deal at the end of March.
(15 / 61)
- Fulham’s Under-19s were crowned Dr Pepper Dallas Cup champions following a 5-1 defeat of Japanese side Kashiwa Reysol - seeing off Coritiba, LA Galaxy, Eintracht Frankfurt and Fluminense en route to the Final.
(16 / 61)
- The Whites raced into a 3-0 lead against derby rivals Queens Park Rangers at Craven Cottage at the start of April thanks to a Berbatov double and an own goal from Clint Hill. Adel Taarabt pulled one back for the visitors, before an entertaining second half unfolded... Mark Schwarzer saved a Loic Remy penalty, who later eventually found the net, Steve Sidwell is sent off and Fulham hang on to the points.
(17 / 61)
- Fulham reached the 40-point mark with a 1-1 draw at Villa Park, as Fabian Delph’s own goal saw the Whites level the scores.
(18 / 61)
- 10-man Fulham were unfortunate to lose to Arsenal on the day when Mark Schwarzer made his 500th Premier League appearance.

- Dan Burn hit what proved to be the winner at Wembley as Yeovil Town defeated Marcello Trotta’s Brentford to claim the League One Play-Off trophy.
(25 / 61)
- The First Team ran out worthy winners at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium with Kačaniklić, Berbatov and Emanuelson scoring the goals in this May fixture.
(26 / 61)
- A Moussa Dembélé hat-trick helps Steve Wigley’s all-conquering Under-18s to an unprecedented season of triumph. The 3-0 defeat of Reading at Craven Cottage in the National Play-Off Final followed the Whites’ third straight Barclays Under-18 Premier League title and Dallas Cup win.
(27 / 61)
- Derek Boateng and Fernando Amorebieta arrived at the Club on free transfers as we began preparations for the 2013/14 season.
(28 / 61)
- And Maarten Stekelenburg was not far behind them as the Dutch goalkeeper joined from Roma.
(29 / 61)
- But while we welcomed new arrivals, there were also some fond farewells, notably for Simon Davies, Schwarzer and Chris Baird who departed having made a collective 554 appearances for the Club and creating plenty of memories along the way.

(33 / 61)
- And, not long after, Martin Jol and Hangeland flew out to Jacksonville to meet our new Owner.
(34 / 61)

(35 / 61)
- Darren Bent arrived on loan from Aston Villa to add some firepower to the squad.
(36 / 61)
- And Riether signed a contract extension on the same day to further add to the positive atmosphere around Motspur Park.
(37 / 61)
- Pajtim Kasami scored his first Fulham goal as the Whites defeated Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, as our 2013/14 season opened with three points in mid-August.
(38 / 61)
- Scott Parker arrives from Tottenham Hotspur as Fulham become his fifth London side.
(39 / 61)
- A debut goal for Bent proves scant consolation as Arsenal emerge 3-1 victors at a sodden Craven Cottage.
(40 / 61)
- Elsad Zverotić proves to be the sole arrival on transfer deadline day.
(41 / 61)
- Kerim Frei then departs soon after, with Besiktas agreeing a deal with the Turkey international.
(42 / 61)
- The ROAR of the Jaguars visit the Cottage for our clash with West Brom.
(43 / 61)
- But, on the day when Hangeland made his 250th Fulham appearance, a late Gareth McAuley header meant three points became one after Steve Sidwell had given his side the lead.
(44 / 61)
- After an impressive pre-season, 20-year-old winger Buomesca Tué Na Bangna was rewarded with his Fulham debut in late September. Despite the 2-0 loss at Chelsea, it was an evening to remember for the youngster.
(45 / 61)
- The Whites came from behind to defeat Everton 2-1 in the Capital One Cup, although the following round saw us defeated 4-3 by Leicester City.
(46 / 61)
- The Cottage bid farewell to the Michael Jackson statue.
(47 / 61)
- The arrival of Stoke in SW6 signalled a massive game and it was eventually decided by a late Bent strike.
(48 / 61)
- Kasami sprints on to a lofted pass from Riether, before taking the ball on his chest. The 21-year-old then lashes an unbelievable volley over the desperate dive of Crystal Palace keeper Julian Speroni for a goal that will live long in the memory.
(49 / 61)
- The Club announced that we would be continuing our partnership with Shooting Star CHASE for another year.
(50 / 61)
- René Meulensteen is appointed Head Coach to work alongside Jol.
(51 / 61)
- However, a poor 3-0 defeat at West Ham saw Jol relieved of his duties, with Meulensteen stepping in to take charge of First Team affairs.
(52 / 61)
- One positive from the game in East London, though, was a debut for free-scoring 17-year-old Moussa Dembélé.
(53 / 61)
- Jonathan Hill was swiftly appointed as First Team Coach.
(54 / 61)
- In his second game in charge, Meulensteen oversees a vital 2-0 defeat of Aston Villa at Craven Cottage with goals from Sidwell and Berbatov offering hope down on the banks of the Thames.
(55 / 61)
- Christmas at the Cottage was another roaring success in 2013.

(57 / 61)
- A brave fightback from Fulham saw us draw level with Manchester City, but the title-hopefuls eventually ran out 4-2 winners at the Cottage.
(58 / 61)
- With the transfer window on the horizon, the Club announced that Fulham favourite Clint Dempsey would return on a two-month loan deal.
(59 / 61)
- It was a busy Christmas Eve at the Club, as we then confirmed that Alan Curbishley had joined as First Team Technical Director.
(60 / 61)
- We had mixed fortunes between Christmas and New Year, as a fine 2-1 triumph over Norwich City on Boxing Day was followed up by a forgettable 6-0 loss at Hull City. Scott Parker was rested for that game after hitting a spectacular winner at Carrow Road.
(61 / 61)
- The year concluded with another familiar face returning to SW6, as former Manager Ray Wilkins was appointed as Assistant Head Coach.
