Ninth Is Fantastic

Sunday 13 May 2012 16:45

Fulham ended the 2011/12 campaign in ninth position and Manager Martin Jol described the Team’s final standing as ‘fantastic’ despite the season ending in defeat at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

‘If you play at a place like White Hart Lane you have to play with flair and not be intimidated,’ Jol told the assembled media after Sunday’s game against Spurs.

‘It was an exciting game and in the first half an hour they [Spurs] were better. They were stronger and sharper but then we were better and we created a few chances before they scored their second goal.

‘It was pleasing for us to finish the season in ninth place. We've finished equal on points with Liverpool and there's a five point gap between us and the teams below us.

'I would have liked for us to have taken something from today’s game but ninth place is fantastic and since Christmas we're in the top five or six in terms of our results over the last few months.’
