So, just how did Fulham finish ninth, their first ever back-to-back top 10 finish in the top flight?
Chances were, if we were winning at half, we’d win the game. And if we were losing, we had a better chance than most at getting something out of the match. And that’s not all:
- Never lost a single match when winning at half (10-1-0)
- Conceded just 4 goals in the second half when winning; one behind leaders Stoke City
- Finished 2nd overall in total points gained when losing at halftime with 8
- Finished 18th overall in total points gained when drawing at halftime with 13
- Tied with United overall for least amount of points dropped with just 6
- Yet, somehow, conceded 17 goals in the final 15 minutes, more than in 2007-08
How did our home record stack up with our away record?
- Had 7th best home record, behind every team that’s going to Europe
- Nipped Stoke City for *not* having the least away goals scored in the entire Football League.
- Swansea City was the only team in the bottom 10 that defeated us at home
- Liverpool was the only team in the top 10 we beat on the road
- Beat Arsenal, Norwich, Sunderland, Stoke, and Wigan all by 2-1 at home
Anything else cool that may have helped?
- Didn’t have a single red card all season
- Spurs’ win on Sunday meant they won the London Derbies Cup, though we conceded the least amount of goals
- Clint Dempsey set a whole bunch of records. And then some.
Got any other stats worth mentioning?
