Fulham v Tottenham

Postby Hams » Tue Dec 03, 2013 4:48 pm

Fulham lost their last game 3-0 away at West Ham which resulted in manager Martin Jol getting the sack.

Tottenham drew their last game 2-2 at home with Man Utd then AVB had a rant at the media after the game.

Any comments or predictions?

a managerless Fulham could be the last thing Villas-Boas needs right now. impossible to predict how this might play out as teams playing without a manager are notoriously unpredictable.

most people would consider this an away banker but football has a habit of heaping more pressure on people in unexpected ways and we've had a number of coupon destroyers already this season.

i think we could see yet another draw here at 1-1 with spurs being booed off by the neutral section tanked up on white wine.

No, not having it. Spurs were looking more like their old selves in the last home game. The pressure is on but Spurs just need to stay focussed and play without fear. Fulham 1 Spurs 2.

AVB has dropped Soldado to the bench and recalled Defoe to the attack and there is still no place in the first team for Townsend.

Well a decent win, but Jesus it was laboured. Top marks to the Fulham manager, making seven changes to the team was brave but it worked. When they went one up it looked like another bad day at the office for Andre, but two scorchers from Chiriches and Holtby (really pleased to see him score, I hope that will give his self confidence the boost it needs) saved the day.

AVB made some sensible changes in the line up, and during the game also, but there is still a disjointed look about the team. Getting a little worrying, I was hoping things would be gelling by this stage. Nonetheless, I'll sleep well tonight as a happy Tottenham fan. Still in there, hanging on by our fingertips!

FT

Fulham 1-2 Tottenham
1-0 Dejagah 57’
1-1 Chiriches 73’
1-2 Holtby 82’

Fulham have now lost 6 league games in a row.

Spurs managed to come back from a goal down to win the game and some might say they were lucky to win all 3 points.

Any comments?

well i would say they were a little lucky , but Lloris made a few superb saves to deny Fulham at the end and that are what goalkeepers are there to do ...stop goals .

another unconvincing win but this will not do much to keep the wolves from the door.

there is still intense pressure on Villas-Boas and you wonder whether they wil ever kick on and start playing in the manner most expected them to from the start.

still seems to be a club without a clear idea on how and who it should play which is never a good sign. by the time they figure it out the front runners should be well out of sight and so a battle for 5/6th could be all that's left. a season wasted, most would consider.
