Fulham F.C. ~ Johnny Hayneselnut pizza

Introduction: John Norman “Johnny” Haynes (17 October 1934 – 18 October 2005) played his entire career of 18 years at Fulham, playing 657 games and scoring 157 goals between 1952 and 1970. Still a club record.

He was the first player to be paid £100 a week, this was in 1961. And Pelé is quoted as saying of Haynes, he was the “best passer of the ball I’ve ever seen”.  Hence you will need napkins for this pizza as it distributes itself everywhere.

Preparation time: 10mins

Cooking time: 10 mins

Home kit: 10 inch baking tray

Away kit: 1 large serving plate, 6 side plates and napkins, did I mention napkins?

Serves: 6


  • 1 thin and crispy pizza base (10 inch)
  • 4 tbsp. Nutella
  • 2 tbsp. toasted hazelnuts
  • A handful of raspberries or strawberries or dates or whatever you fancy really.  No, not anchovies.  Definitely not anchovies.
  • Icing sugar, for dusting

Method: Preheat the oven to 230oC

First half

Bake the pizza base on the baking tray for 4 mins.

Second half

Smooth the Nutella over the top, sprinkle with nuts and put back in the oven for just 1 min. Scatter the raspberries (or whatever) over the pizza. Dust with icing sugar.

Serve straightaway with lashings of ginger beer. Napkins, don’t forget the napkins.

Fulham F.C. ~ Craven Cottage pie

Introduction: Craven Cottage has been the home ground of Fulham since 1896.  Its current capacity is 25,700, the record attendance was for a game against the Millwall Dockers on the 8th October 1938 and stands at 49,335.

This pie should be made with King Edward potatoes as they were named after King Edward VII who was King when Fulham ascended to the football league in 1903.

Preparation time: 20 min

Cooking time: 1 hour 20 mins

Home kit: a large saucepan, large shallow ovenproof baking dish

Away kit: 4-6 dinner plates and forks

Serves: 4-6


  • 1 tbsp. sunflower oil
  • 1 lb. beef mince
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 x 400ml cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 350g frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, peas, green beans)
  • 1 lb. peeled potatoes
  • A knob of Butter (proper stuff)
  • A matchbox sized piece of strong cheddar, grated
  • Generous pinch of salt and pepper

Method: Preheat the oven to 180oC

First half

Heat the oil in the saucepan over a medium heat and fry the onions until soft, then add the beef, keep frying until the beef is evenly browned, this will take about 10 minutes. Now pour in the two cans of tomatoes, Worcester sauce and the frozen mixed vegetables. Season to taste, with salt and pepper, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

While that’s happening, cut the potatoes into small chunks (they cook quicker) and boil them in salted water until soft. Drain and mash them to smithereens with the butter.

Second half

Now it all comes together.  Lightly grease the baking dish and spoon in the mince mixture. Spread the mash over the top and sprinkle the cheese over the mash. Place in the oven for 30-40 mins until thoroughly hot and the cheese is bubbling.

Full time result

Serve on its own on piping hot plates.  It’s a meal in itself!
