Great result, lousy game.
Spurs keep the push going for our best ever Premiership finish after a 2-0 home victory against Fulham, one of the dullest sides in Premiership memory along with, of course, the goons, Chelsea and Bolton. From the very start it was clear "Cookie" (why?) would settle for a point and the time wasting was dreadful. The flow of the game was not helped either by another incompetent referee who decided to stop the game even if there was a great advantage to be had and then ignore the other officials even though they are there to support him.
The match was a thoroughly dreadful affair. Fulham stuck everyone behind the ball and provided little service to Cole. Meanwhile Spurs passed the ball across the back line a few times and then Carrick would lump it up to Mido who then failed to win it. After the amazing debut he had a lot to live up to but certain aspects of his game could have been better. He busied himself and made some good opportunities but as the target man out of the two strikers he needs to win the high balls which he didn't do on Saturday. Nevertheless he still put in an all round good performance.
The second half continued much the same way as the first until the introduction of Kanoute for an off form Defoe. Five minutes later he slipped in a good free kick but one that Van Der Sar should have dealt with. Jol must have been reading "The Shelf" when he introduced Keane late on as he didn't go for a hopeless 4-3-3 but kept it at 4-4-2. Keane then missed a couple of easy chances before rounding the keeper to finish Dullham off. Keane now has 13 goals, a great return for someone who has been rotated quite a lot with the other forwards. He is still a great player and anyone who disagrees is a fool.
On a final note, Ajax are apparently sniffing around Jol. I hope I am right when I say that this is a rubbish story printed by the idiotic press from nothing. Jol leaving would be an outright disaster and I hope that he stays to see through what he started. With Charlton only drawing and the toon army beating Bolton we lie only three points off sixth place, with a game in hand. Fingers crossed!
