Sam talked again about the clean sheet and 3 points at Craven Cottage on Saturday. Sam says we frustrated Fulham – but how about the fans?
Sam Allardyce - we frustrated Fulham
Big Sam told the Evening Chronicle today:
â€œThe challenge now is to repeat last Saturdayâ€™s clean sheet at home against Derby County on Sunday. â€œShay hinted at that as soon as he got through the dressing room door after the game, and he had a big smile on his face.â€
â€œItâ€™s very pleasing for the goalkeepers, because they thrive on clean sheets as much as defenders.â€ â€œItâ€™s a responsibility on us all, and I hope we all contributed to keeping Fulham out.â€
â€œWe nullified their dangers and threats they had for most of the game.â€ â€œYouâ€™ve got to remember, playing away from home in the Premier League is never easy.â€
â€œFulham have scored a lot of goals at home and pressured a lot of teams, but we never allowed them to do that.â€
â€œWe frustrated them, and finally killed them off at the end.â€
Well it was a good win but just a terrible game to watch. We certainly hope the Derby game will be a little less of a pain to watch. During Saturday’s game we kept wondering when Newcastle would get going.
But on the other hand, we must admit weâ€™ve been rather upbeat this week with the 3 points. We can always play well in the next game. Maybe thatâ€™s Samâ€™s mantra.
