Hoillet Horror

Hoillet Horror

Yesterday, down by the river, it appeared to be one of those days.

With both sides desperate for a win, the game turned out to be exciting in periods but disappointing overhaul.

Both teams will feel they could have snatched a win, Fulham probably more so as they dominated the majority of the second half.

Unfortunately, the major talking point of the game though will be the incident that occurred in stoppage time when an aerial collision between Mark Schwarzer and Junior Hoillet resulted in the Blackburn player being carried away with his neck in a brace.

As you`d expect, the two managers had differing views on the collision.

Steve Kean, who served with Chris Coleman during his reign as manager, was the more vociferous of the two feeling that Schwarzer should have been red-carded for the incident, remarking,

"When I spoke to Howard (Webb) he said he just felt that even though Junior got the first touch Kelly was coming round."

"But at the time it happened I thought it was going to be a red card."

"If Schwarzer had not gone in for it in the fashion that he did, it could have resulted in a goal."

"So he was going all out to make sure he got contact on something, be it the ball or our man. It was a good professional attempt from each of them to get the ball."


Interesting how his view slightly mellowed as the interview went on.

Martin Jol, on the other hand, had a more even balanced view of the collision, commenting,

"Hoillet is a terrific player and a nice guy and went for the ball, but Mark Schwarzer was clattered as well. It was a 50-50 situation."

Here at Vital Fulham we hope that Hoillet makes a speedy recovery and that the incident is soon forgotten.

Schwarzer had no choice. After Kelly's gaff, he had to come for it. An unfortunate outcome and a deserved yellow, but certainly not a red.

50-50 challenge. Both players we're brave in that respect. Have seen reds given though.

i am surely biased, but i didn't even feel it was a yellow... it's a 50-50 ball... i guess it's a yellow as schwarzer got there late and got the man, but not a red, surely... a VERY unfortunate play, and i hope the quickest recovery for hoillet, who had a terrifying game against us
