i was so embarressed about the first half,but **** me............
when da costa scored,i near thru my 2 year old thru the ceiling!!!!!!!
then the wife serves me a full easter sunday roast with 10 mins to go! how the **** was i meant to eat that,with my guts churning on nerves and guinness???????
strikers are there to score,and yes ilan has been slagged,but he could have scored the most important goal in west hams history.
Da Costa was immense today too,he was jumpin like a fuckin jackass.....
Wish I'd placed my bet with you now CHWC. Told you we'd get a point.
I went through all the emotions today and haven't calmed down yet. Parker was superb again. Am I the only one who thought he got the ball first in 'the' challenge?
What a fantastic goal from Faubert/Ilan. I would have smashed another light fitting in the ceiling had we not replaced them with recessed lights after I smashed one when we scored the winner at Old Trafford a few seasons ago.
Fair play to Da Costa as well. Dug that one out of the ground to score.
Great second half performance which has stopped the rot and will give us a bit more confidence for next week when I shall be making an unfortunately rare visit to the Boleyn.
Absolute masterclass of a diving header today. Last one I saw as good as that was Alan Taylor, from a Geno cross at Highbury back in '77 - won us the match 3-2, and gave us the points that kept us up . . . (anyhow, enough of a middle-aged man reminiscing . . .) I hope today's result does the same
Was it the same the team in claret and blue that took to the pitch in the second half? Couldn't have been more different, could it? I can't remember the last time I saw us play so poorly in the first half and play so well in the second.
Oh, and as others have commented, the traveling support sounded huge on TV today -- all you could hear was Bubbles, Over Land and Sea and Franco Zola's claret and blue army . . .
MOTM: Traveling Support
Summed up why the claret and blue runs through my veins. Fight and spirit. The roller coaster ride. The simply first class support. It's back on. Wouldn't swap this club for any other in the world. We only drew. But my God is the emotion back. Played a gig tonight, and all I could think about during each song is Ilan's header. They tear me apart, they make me believe again. West Ham til I die!
It makes you wonder why they could not show this fight against relegation rivals
When Everton went 1-0 up I was about to leave the pub, thinking 'Here we ****ing go again'.
Glad I didn't, brilliant performance in the second half and the determination to come from behind twice...
fantastic result . only downside was that i was at a family do yesterday so sky plussed the game and avoided the score , got up to watch this morn and the match cut out after 68 mins !!!!!!! bastardo
That's the thing with West Ham, life on the edge! It'd be boring having mid-league obscurity every year!
The away end were an absolute credit (notwithstanding the two Foster's bottles that came flying over my head), and in the end Everton, Piennaar aside, were made to look very ordinary. Two lapses in concentration defensively meant they didn't have to work particularly hard for their goals either
Round of applause from the home fans when Mido was booked to chants of 'off, off, off'
Parker, Da Costa and Noble for me did the business
Wonderful display of guts second half coming back after going behind twice.
Watched it on the telly and our supporters (often picked up by the TV cameras) were magnificent with their singing and getting behind the team.
Truly showed what it means to be West Ham.
Quite agree - phenominal goal. Yet it's hardly getting a mention.
And on the third day they will rise again, I'll interpret the Bible in my own way. And thence ,on the good word spread and the diciples became a happy bunch, forward they went onward and upward and their fortunes came our of hiding as the diciples sang Twist and Shout..................................................................................................................
I can't be arsed to trawl throught the thread to look, does anyone have a link to the goals please? Wouldn't mind seeing them again!
Edit: Just seen them on SSN
I had a little bit of money on Pienaar to score the first Goal. 9/1. You win some you lose some.
Went out to go and watch this one and was very impressed with the second half. Fight back like that and learn to give the Penalty to Noble then you'll be OK at the end of the season, I think.
he should have been penalised for dangerous play
