One of many professional football clubs based in London, England. Purchased by Harrod's owner Mohamed Al-Fayed in 1997, Al-Fayed's millions have helped the club climb the ladder from the Second Division to the First Division to the English Premier League. They started their first season in the top flight by facing Manchester United at Old Trafford and nearly beat the Red Devils (they lost 3-2).

Sorry Webster, Fulham hasn't been in Middlesex since the 1950s (Middlesex no longer exists, officially).
Area in South West London, covered by the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. Also the home of Chelsea FC, at Stamford Bridge - next door to Fulham Broadway tube and round the corner from North End Road Market(selling mainly cheap fruit and veg and tacky clothes). North, heading towards Chelsea, are all the trendy restaurants and shops. Away from the centre and down New Kings Road, towards the Thames, are stacks of pubs and wine bars. Also, near the bridge, is the 15th century church where The Omen was filmed, on the edge of Bishops Park. A happy and lively area.

Ful"ham (?), n. [So named because supposed to have been chiefly made at Fulham, in Middlesex, Eng.) A false die.

[Cant] [Written also fullam.]

Shak.
