Fulham - Hodgson on Spurs Draw!
And so the game we`d longed for all week came and went without any firm result.
The only certainty being that we`ve to travel to White Hart Lane for what looks like a very difficult replay.
After the game, Roy Hodgson gave his views on events and spoke about the game and how it thinks it could finally be won, remarking,
"It was a very exciting Cup tie, I thought - a fierce Cup tie played in the right spirit."
"And I don`t think that either Harry Redknapp or myself can really complain about the result."
"I think 0-0 is a fair result on the evening although there were a few scares at both ends."
"Spurs are a force at home but they`re a force away from home as well."
"In actual fact, away from home recently, they`ve got some excellent results so we don`t feel we`re out of the competition yet. I suppose we had the home advantage today that we pass to them."
"But I think we`re capable of giving as good a performance away from home as we`ve done at home."
"And who knows, I think the game could be decided by a mistake at the back of a wonder goal and who knows where that mistake or wonder goal is going to come from. It could come from us just as easily as it could come from them."
I`m not quite sure about describing it as an exciting tie though Roy, it all got a bit too placid, at times, in the first half, but what really concerns me is that if we are going to progress to the semi-final then we`re going to have to produce an away performance far better than we`ve produced all season on English soil!
