Fulham are currently fighting for Championship promotion, having been relegated from the Premier League last season.
It is sometimes easy to forget just how successful Fulham were as a club in the not so distant past. The Cottagers established themselves as Premier League stalwarts and even made it to the final of the UEFA Cup (now known as the Europa League).
On Twitter, Fulham tweeted out an interview with striker Bobby Zamora, who played a key part during their European run that season and was discussing one of the sides the Cottagers played, and knocked out, on the way to the final.
Zamora claimed that Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk were the best footballing side he’d faced, but also went onto discuss their weaknesses.
It’s an interesting debate, and it provoked some interesting replies from the Fulham faithful on social media. Here’s how Fulham supporters reacted to Zamora’s comments on Shakhtar Donetsk being the best team the Cottagers faced…

I think the Shakhtar game is the fastest football match I've ever watched! I was knackered just from watching it…
