Areola, H. Reed, Lookman, Adarabioyo were very good. RLC and Cav improved their performances. Not the best appearances of Andersen and Aina.

Thought Tosin snuffed out alot of chances and made it look easy

Many good solid performances tonight but the goodest and most solid, not putting a foot wrong, the heartbeat of the team, keeping things moving, grafting incessantly and my MotM was  Harrison Reed.

between Areola and Reed but went with Reed in the end. He was everywhere and hardly gave the ball away. Proper player imo.

I agree wholeheartedly with every word of this. Spot on.

Great performances from the whole team, but I thought Harrison played out of his skin in a difficult midfield (Hojberg and Ndombele were giving everyone a tough time, but Reed kept them pretty quiet).

Areola for me, what a keeper

Lookman made such an impact and it was good to see a good performance from Cav

Just need that quick striker and we will stay up

Reed or Areola but I went for Areola as we wouldn’t have been fighting for anything without his first half saves. But Reed was tireless today too

Great second half.  Well done to the whole team.  I gave it to Cavaleiro for the goal.  Can completely understand why fans would choose Areola as he has once again proven he is a fantastic keeper.  Lookman would be my third choice as was vital to Fulham getting that goal.

H. Reed was running circles around everyone, making the rest of the players look like they are in slow motion :D

If I could of voted for Scott I would of. Gave it to Cav for the goal and the confidence that will come from it.

Toss up between Reed and Areola but gave it to Reed. He covered every blade of grass today and put in some great tackles.

Completely agree - Reed was phenomenal.

I went for Harrison Reed. He completely snuffed out their £62 million player. Areola, Tosin & Aina were close seconds.

A quick striker would be the piece of the jigsaw that would make us a good team.

Went with Reed as I thought he did a lot to disrupt their game and prevent them from finding rhythm.

Can’t pick, two most stand out were Reed and Areola, but the whole team were fantastic, big well done to Scotty tonight, great subs at the right time. More quality from AK and might have snatched it.

I went with Areola but only by the tightest of margins in front of the excellent Harrison Reed

Best performance from RLC. Maybe just maybe he will prove a lot of us wrong and be key to helping us stay up.

Thought Cav played his best game too, seemed to raetain possession well and made important runs. Reed didn't make a mistake all game did he?

I felt some of our play is so nearly there to being perfect. The odd loose ball or poor ref decision away from another dangerous attack in the turn over of possession.  Fine tune our final pass and get a speedy clinical striker , and this team can compete right at the top end of the table! I really believe that.

Reed - brilliant
Everyone else - marginally less than brilliant

RLC marginally better than normal

Areola because two of the saves he made in the first half were world class and kept us in it 100%

+2 - Nipple boy for me as well. I don’t remember VDS even being this good. He may be the best keeper we’ve ever had. That makes Rodak the best back up we’ve ever had as well.

Can't look past Areola. Reed was very good, as was Adarabioyo. Lookman would have challenged Areola with his performance but was only on for half an hour.

Everyone played his part tonight, but Harrison Reed gets my vote because he was the one who played better than I thought possible.

I shall give a mention to Andersen: What a leader he is. And I thought much of his distribution was excellent. Many similarities with Chris Coleman in my view.

Post by: MikeCdawg on January 13, 2021, 11:24:09 PM
Harrison Reed. He was everywhere tonight and his range of passing was excellent.

Brilliant performances from Areola and Cav. Honourable mentions for Tosin and Anguissa.

Tosun only young and must be bargain signing of any CH this season.

A difficult decision as there were so many great performances, Areola was superb, but I have to choose Harrison Reed. He was busy and industrious and his work rate is phenomenal. Breaking up Spurs attacks, winning 50 50 balls all over the pitch. He really punches his weight, a thorn in Spurs side for the whole match.
Title: Re: FoF Man of the Match Spurs v Fulham

Lookman made the difference when he came on but I'll go for Areola

Got to be Reed, didn't put a foot wrong today and was winning the ball on the floor and in the air taking on all comers.

I almost never pick a keeper unless they do something exceptional very late. I thought RLC had his best match in a Fulham shirt. Robinson was a pain for spuds down the left and Lookman changed the game. Rosin was a rock at the back but I wish he had covered for Anderson on their goal. Frank was strong in possession and constantly moved the ball forward. His yellow was totally unwarranted. None of the previous would have mattered without Harrison Reed. He kept us in it early, made more steals than I could count and even chipped in with several good passes. Reed MOM!

Close thing for me between Areola and Harrison Reed.
I think our keeper is consistently excellent and the best player we have by some distance however last night Harrison Reed was outstanding. He harassed, tackled and competed with controlled aggression, he never stopped and his energy levels were infectious.
In my opinion he didn’t put a foot wrong and Reed gets my Vote.

He led by example and worked his socks off again motivating this team to do what SP wanted them to do and he got results from everyone.  Andersen once again for me closely followed by Areaola and the other nine players who started ...

Lots of good performances but my vote goes to Areola yet again, he is just amazing.

Tosin for me. Areola did really well also (as did most of them).

Isn’t it refreshing each week to have several candidates? Not so long ago we often quipped “nine of them” or similar.  Anyway as others have said Reed and Areola were real stand outs. Without Areola’s saves in the first half we would have been out of it. Reed was everywhere and dominated central midfield but what I liked most was that he never backed off of a challenge, he brought real steel to our challenge. 
Logic says Areola, heart says Reed.
