New blood for Fulham?

Saturday 15 December 2001

Reflecting on Fulham's 4-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur, Jean Tigana admitted that the Whites were still venturing into new ground in certain areas.

"It is the first time we have played three matches in a week at this level and my players were very tired today, they had no reaction and no legs." Tigana said.

"That is the first time we have lost by such a margin. We had a bad day against an efficient team."

With Fulham finding the net only twice in the last four games, Tigana was quick to point out that chances were being created but not converted.

"Our problem is that we need to score more. Spurs had two chances in the first half and scored them both. We had two chances and missed them both. That is the difference at this level.

"I think possibly we need some new blood, but I won't be going out and signing anybody tonight, that is something for the future."
