After a decade in the top flight and the most memorable achievement in the club's long history, pushing Atletico Madrid to the limit last May, the question for all Fulham fans now has to be, where do we go from here? The appointment of Roy's successor is imminent, summer transfer activity has been quiet. Are we really London's 'smallest' Prem club, mid-table safety the limit of our ambition?
A new blogger for this site and a new dawn for the club I've watched across all four divisions since the days of Johnny Haynes. I was there last May in Hamburg, right behind that goal as the dastardly Diego toe-poked home to break our hearts. But what a thrilling ride the club gave us en route to a major European final, the famous names of football forced to bend the knee to humble little Fulham. Success has cost us our manager, and the smart money says Martin Jol is next in line to progress the club even further.
What do you think? Will we ever have another season like it? Or are you happy to claim a few famous scalps at the Cottage along the way while steering clear of the relegation scrum? Some of us might settle simply for another win on the road! It's been a year since the last one after all. Liverpool fans please note, Roy's ultra-cautious approach to away matches - don't say we didn't warn you.
In the countdown to the big kick-off we'll be assessing the new manager, scrutinising the club's transfer dealings, bringing you lots of informed feedback from inside the club, talking to the players, filing match reports - and generally looking to cover anything and everything that encapsulates the Superwhites.
Much as I love Fulham FC and our lovely compact ground down by the Thames, I do also have a competitive streak in me when it comes to games and life in general. So as we celebrate 10 years at the top, I pose this question to the Fulham family. What can we realistically expect to achieve this season? Are most of us happy just to follow the friendliest club in London regardless of results? Is the Premiership in fact in danger of devaluing itself with the Champions likely to come only from two or three clubs at most?
