After seeing off the brave challenge of Blackpool last night, Martin Jol seemed, in his post match interview, pleased that some kind of justice had been done with Jol remarking,

“Someone told me it was an own goal but I don`t know, I haven`t seen it again yet. I asked Brede about it and he didn`t know either.”

“Of course it`s a relief to win games like this but then again we should have won the first game at home, we created so many chances.”

“I thought we did okay amongst the circumstances. They are a good team with a few talented players. We should have won at home because we had so many crosses and opportunities in the final third but we couldn`t score.”

“We had to come away from home to a difficult place.”

“The pitch was probably 10 times worse than we could have imagined but we were prepared for that.”

“We still tried to play. That is the only thing we can do but then again you have to score a goal and the problem comes when you don`t.”

“Conceding in the 83rd minute was very disappointing so to come back and score 30 seconds before the end was terrific.”

“We knew whoever scored first in extra-time would win it and luckily enough it was Fulham.”


Now all that remains, preventing us from reaching the 5th round, is the small matter of an away tie at Old Trafford or Upton Park, probably the former.
