Jol fuming after points shared

Fulham manager Martin Jol was left fuming after his team were pegged back to a 1-1 draw by Wigan at Craven Cottage.

The Londoners have now gone four successive home matches without a win in all competitions, with the last victory coming against Newcastle on 10 December.

Giorgos Karagounis' fantastic first-half strike put Fulham ahead but Franco di Santo levelled in equally impressive fashion for the Latics in the 71st minute.

"It is always the same story," Jol said. "You go one up and you need another goal but cannot score another goal and then you are vulnerable.

"It is easier said than done but when you are 1-0 up you still have to dominate the game. We had a little problem to contain them and they had players in the pockets but we are a big team at the back.

"But we needed a second goal and we did not score a second goal. It was the same against Southampton when we needed a second goal and didn't score and they scored an equaliser.

"We have a problem in our balance but we have quality and that will pull us through but we have to score two goals. Last year, if we scored one goal it was decisive. This year most of the time, it wasn't decisive."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
