Peter Crouch has decided against a move to Fulham and instead will team up with old friends Harry Redknapp and Jermain Defoe at Tottenham it was announced on Tuesday. While it would have been nice to get Crouch on the books at Craven Cottage it was not to be.
Fulham can now fully focus on their trip to Lithuania for their Europa League opener against FK Vetra. The Lithuanian club advanced to the third round of qualifying by defeating HJK of Helsinki in the second round Grevenmacher in the first round.
Thursday will be the first leg in Vilnius followed by the return match at Craven Cottage on August 6th. Obviously it would be great for Fulham to get past Vetra and into the next phase of this competition. After playing so well during the last season to qualify for the Europa League, it would be devastating to crash out so early.
What are your expectations for Fulham in the Europa League? How far do you think they can go?
