Fulham - Let`s Not Get Carried Away!
It`s a great feeling waking up, the win over Arsenal, yesterday, has put an extra spring in our step as we contemplate another rain-sodden Bank Holiday.
But, and this is a crucial factor, we shouldn`t get carried away with the win.
Sure we were good and at time we made Arsenal look second rate but on another day we may look as good and still end up on the losing side. That`s football as they say.
Speaking after the game, to Setanta Sports, Roy Hodgson was quick to re-iterate the main ambition for this season, staying up and had this to say,
"Our ambitions for the season must remain the same; we have got to try and stay in this league."
"This is a very tough league to stay in; we have seen already with Stoke winning, Hull beating us, the so-called bottom teams are taking points already."
"We have got to be modest and humble and we know we have got to work as hard as we did today in every game to get a result, whether you are playing the Arsenal or one of the teams who are being tipped for relegation."
"If we can get that into our thick skulls then we stand half a chance."
"I thought the quality of our passing and movement matched the Arsenal`s and I`m really delighted about that because if you get anywhere near to matching the Arsenal that is something you have to be very proud of."
If anyone can keep the players level-headed then its Roy, wouldn`t you agree?
