Fulham - Hodgson on Dour Draw!

Fulham - Hodgson on Dour Draw!

Following what some would say dour result at Anfield, a result that effectively ends Liverpool`s chances of qualifying for the Champions League, (Sir) Roy Hodgson, in his post match interview, spoke about the display of resolute defending and also the difficulty in playing Liverpool when he remarked,

"There is no doubt Liverpool dominated the game and we were forced on the back foot but at the same time we stood our corner very well and fought hard."

"We stopped them getting clear-cut chances and it was really when we just lost Daniel Agger for a corner at the end that I was concerned the ball was going to go in the back of the net."

"On the occasions when they got good strikes in Mark Schwarzer was equal to it. It is another excellent clean sheet."

"I have got to be very satisfied with what the team has done because Liverpool are a very difficult team to take points off home and away."


I think I`m in agreement with the casual observer here, the observer who hopes our paths don`t meet in the Europa League Final, especially if it were to turn out as flat as this fixture did!

I think we got the result we were looking for. Regarding the prospect of meeting Liverpool in the Europa League final, we played well against them in this seasons home fixture and got three points, and got a point with very little attacking effort in the away fixture, so I think we'd have a decent shot in a single match on neutral ground.

Can't complain with a point from Anfield, agree with Teddy we would definately have a chnace against them in the final, but lets not get ahead of ourselves Hamburg aren't going to roll over and lay down for us, they want to play in the final on their own ground so it will be a very tough match.

Damn good point earned the hard way. Shows that you have a big chance if/when you get to final. Though Liverpool might not make it.

Top ten is still possible. We have a game in hand on Blackburn and a significantly better GD. Both clubs have about the same level of difficulty with the remaining fixtures. Stoke have a difficult run-in, so we could definitely leap-frog them. That will probably come down the the head-to-head matchup in May. Everton has Blackburn, Stoke and Fulham in their remaining fixtures, so they'll have a big say on who gets top ten.
