Good result today, considering Fulham have

Premier League Tottenham Hotspur

comment on the article

taken a few notable scalps at the cottage this season.

Apart from one or two scares, I thought in general we pretty well controlled the game today, and certainly with a bit more up front should have come away with the victory.

Anyway, hopefully we should finish of the job in the replay at WHL.

The team all played pretty well today, nobody particulary outstanding, but nobody dreadful, Palacious had an excellent game, and managed to also stay out of the refs notebook, which is all good news.

Onwards and upwards, and Wembley beckons.

I would have prefered WP to get a card and get his suspension out of the way before the replay or the Goons/Chelski/Mutd matches. Surely the management must look at these things and have a quiet word in his ear.

Sounds like for the second time in a number of months Spurs have Gomes to thank for escaping from Craven Cottage undefeated<erm>

"Heurelho Gomes hands Tottenham a share of points against Fulham"

Maybe the outfield players will help him out a bit more on Spurs next visit...

Hey Holte

Just incase you didn't know that is why you have a goalkeeper just the same as you have Friedel and he saved you from a pummeling when we played you in both games.<laugh>

I was at the game and Gomes didn't save us, really. None of his saves was a big deal, and Fulham had only a couple of worthwhile attempts in the whole game. Spurs had the bulk of the possession for the whole match, and pretty much besieged the Fulham penalty area for the first half of the second period. Look at the possession stats ... all the same, we looked a bit toothless up front. Crouch holds the ball up well, but never looks like scoring, and nor did Pav. I think Defoe should have been on from the start. We're missing pace and some creativity ... hope the little fella recovers soon ...

Holte, I wonered where you were, I assume it has taken you a week to get over Villa being beaten by Manchester United Reserves.

As the 21st century moves on Villa are still awaiting their first trophy, tick tock, tick tock.

Great game from the left side of the Spurs : Assou-Ekotto, G. Bale and a great (first half) of Modric ;
nevertheless it's a chalenge - even for a rooster - to play with only one efficient wing.

That's it Sandy:

As for Man U reserves of the players that played most of the game vs Spurs and Villa in the league Cup:

Number of premier league starts this season for Man U team vs Spurs:
About 89!


Number of premier league starts this season for Man U team vs Villa:
About 183!

Players with 14 starts or over:
vs Tottenham -3
vs Villa - 8

Proof you got turned over by their reserves and got a good walloping! (although to be fair they needed 11 men and not 10 in the cup!)

This was a dour match for a late Saturday evening. Granted that FDulham are a tough nut at home, one recalled the dour FA Cup final in 1975 when West Ham beat Fulham in that final 2-0.
Spurs could have taken this one, lacking cutting edge. Spurs once again allowed themselves to be bullied by a good club side but not brilliant. Spurs yearn for CL football etc. etc. but they must learn to take their meagre chances and kill the game. I don't believe Fulham wanted a replay given their fixture schedule. The WHL tie is far from cut and dried. Fulham will toil until they get something out of it and I make them favourites to upset Spurs at home.

Finally I'd like to see the coaches at WHL concentrate on using a six-a-side practice sized goal to get all the players to aim shots at since they are so pathetic at aiming at normal sized goals during matches.
