    "My dream is to make Fulham as big as Manchester United," says Al Fayed
    LONDON, September 21 (DS) - Fulham owner Mohamed Al Fayed claims that he intends to invest his millions into the London club until they overtake Manchester United.
    Al Fayed has already spent tens of millions on attracting new players to Fulham.
    According to The Mirror, Al Fayed said: "Fulham has the potential to become a global brand. My ambitions are domestic and European successes over the next few years, followed by recognition as one of the major players in the football industry in this country and, ultimately, worldwide.
    "Jean Tigana is enjoying the challenge of creating a team which will fulfill my dream to make Fulham as big as Manchester United. I want to make the funds available to him that he needs to build a successful football team."
    Fulham manager Tigana has spent about £40 million of Al Fayed's riches since taking charge at the beginning of the last season.
    During the summer, the French coach spent £7 million on Juventus goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar and recently bought French striker Steve Marlet for £13 million.
    Al Fayed believes Tigana is the key of Fulham's future success.

    If Fulham are to be anywhere near as big as Man Utd they need a new stadium. I dont think they have the fanbase either to be one of the top clubs in britan never mind europe

    Yeah they HAVE to build a new stadium as parts of Craven Cottage are still terraced. I aint gotta clue what the plans are but believe me I don't think a fan base would be a problem. Around where I live more and more people are coming out in Fulham shirts and I live about an hour from the ground.
