The Spurs were consistent in their inconsistency again yesterday. I mean, come on!! I felt like I was watching a horror movie and Tottenham was the busty blonde who was going to get slashed for sure! Fulham played the best they have this season as they clearly believed they had nothing to lose. New manager Meulensteen made seven changes from last game and the team responded with aggression and goal scoring intent.
Tottenham looked to be shell shocked. This was not what was promised to them. Berbatov’s agent had let it known that the Bulgarian was looking to leave Fulham and no surprises the fans at the Cottage let him know of their disapproval. However, that soon changed as he created chances within the first quarter of the game only to find that Lloris was on his game today. Jermain Defoe returned to starting duties as Soldado was deemed to have been given enough chances but the goals still evaded us. Chances were there no question. Lamela could have scored twice but none of it looked like it was planned. It all looked unfortunate for Fulham.
The first half ended with me struggling to believe my eyes! We dominated Manchester the other day and now Fulham was proving too much to handle. And then it happened. The inevitable goal for Fulham. Berbatov and Dejagah combined to slit our blonde throat. The match should have gone to Fulham had it not been for the simple fact that God clearly hates them. Fulham could have played worse games and won.
Chiriches equalized out of nothing. His first goal for the Spurs. From then on it was absolute madness with both sides creating chances and missing team. Holtby managed an absolute peach of a winner in between all that although no Spurs fan could have been sure of that lead till the absolute last second!
It was a victory we did not deserve after a draw we did not deserve. However, three points is three points and I am not one to argue.Follow @TrfficTottenham
