Well this is a game we would have usually thrown away due to not having a reliable keeper between this sticks but in seasons gone by we have thrown games away but maybe now we can see them out and pick up more wins, especially away from home.
Another great away win against a decent side but we made hard work of it. Brad Friedel was the man of the match and rightly so awarded by SKY. The first half was a pretty even match and you can say it might have flattered us to be leading 2-0 but the second half was a different story. For some reason there are 2 very different Tottenham’s, the team that can play anyone off the park and the team that are all over the place and it seems in recent weeks we seem to get both Tottenham’s turn up in the same game, one in the first half and the other in the second half and today was no different.
Gareth Bale gave us the lead before Lennon doubled it late in the first half with a lovely link up move between hiself and Bale. Fulham really came at us in the second half and Friedel was called upon many times to make a series of saves, Parker was there doing all he could to break up Fulham attacks. 10 mins into the second half they got the goal when Ledley headed the ball against the back of Kaboul for an own goal and it was squeaky bum time from that moment on but somehow unknown to mankind we managed to hold out and score an injury time goal from Defoe to make it 3-1.
If you haven’t seen the game then I’d advise you to watch MOTD2 tonight and see how we were hanging on by the skin of our teeth, it was painful at times but we came through in the end which is always a sign of a good team, a team who can win when maybe they haven’t played so well and we certainly didn’t in the second half.
The experience of Friedel was vital and I am sure this guy will help us save many more points through the course of the season.
