Six decades of Cardiff City v Fulham matches

Last updated : 21 October 2018 By Michael Morris

A rarity this season, as we meet a team that we have played in every league campaign since 13/14 – six questions with a Fulham connection dating back to the sixties.

60s. It was supposed to happen against Sheffield United early in the 1962/63 season for the first time for Fulham, but, instead, they had to wait a further three weeks for it when they played Sheffield Wednesday – what am I describing?

70s. This big money City signing, by their standards of the time at least, only ever made two substitute appearances for us, with the second of them coming in a home win over Fulham during this decade, can you name him?

80s. Norwich, Bournemouth, Torquay and Bath – can you name this member of a beaten City side at Craven Cottage from this decade from that list of the other clubs he played for?

90s. The two players challenging for the ball in this picture both have a Cardiff City connection – one should be pretty easy, but the other one has happy memories of the Fulham v City match he played in during his short time with us, who are the two players?

00s. Name this former club record buy by Fulham from this decade.

10s. Name the player who, after twenty years in the game, during which he won eighteen caps for his country, scored the final goal of his career in a Fulham v City game during this decade.


60s. Fulham were the last club in the old First Division to install floodlights at their ground – it wasn’t until September 1962 that they were first used at Craven Cottage after the original launch for them scheduled in late August for a game against Sheffield United. Instead, their first floodlit home match took place on 19 September when they beat Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 under a set of lights purchased by the Supporters’ Club!

70s. Ronnie Moore came on for Wayne Hughes in the 1-0 win over Fulham at Ninian Park on Boxing Day 1979.

80s. Steve Grapes was in the City team beaten 2-1 in London by Fulham in April 1980.

90s. Future City manager Alan Cork is on the left and the other player is John Cornwell who scored a couple of goals in his loan spell with us which started with a 3-1 win at Craven Cottage in August 1993.

00s. Alain Goma.

10s. Scott Parker scored Fulham’s first goal in their 2-1 win over us at craven Cottage in April 2016.
