During the 1999–2000 English football season, Fulham F.C. competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary[edit]

Before the 1999-2000 season, Paul Bracewell was appointed as Fulham manager and despite them competing in the top half of Division One throughout the campaign, Bracewell was sacked on 30 March 2000 by millionaire owner Mohamed Al-Fayed after failing to provide instant success that was demanded from the owner who is desperate to see Fulham play Premiership football and Karl-Heinz Riedle along with assistant Roy Evans took over as caretaker managers on a temporary basis until the end of the season and they guided the Cottagers to a 9th-place finish.[1] On 9 April 2000, the more experienced Jean Tigana was appointed as Bracewell's successor and took over in July.[2]
