The Cottagers traveled to White Hart Lane and nabbed a point, with Fulham grabbing their fourth consecutive clean sheet away from home and extend their unbeaten streak to eight games. True, it is dropping points, but given Fulham's dismal away record in the past years, a point is a point. The draw puts Fulham five points clear of the relegation zone and into 8th place on the table, which gives an indication of just how tightly packed this season is in terms of the standings. Another indication, Fulham, on 25 points, is just two points shy of finding themselves in a spot for the UEFA cup next year, with a game in hand over Hull City and everton and just four points behind Arsenel.
Interestingly, defensive Stalwart Brede Hangeland did not see action and did not dress for today's game. Given that Fulham will host Chelsea on Sunday, I am not sure we should read much into that the non-start. But with the rumors of Hangeland leaving in the January window, it is hard to simply dismiss speculation.
I haven't seen highlights yet, but the game report describes some outstanding work by Mark Schwarzer, Danny Murphy and a few opportunities denied by Tottenham's netminder Heurelho Gomes (who is reportedly fighting for his job with Spurs) against Clint Dempsey and Bobby Zamora.
