Those of you familiar with the geography around the cradle of filth will know of Silver Street British Rail station and its railway bridge. This is a place which holds great horrors for me.

Player Ratings

Shaka Hislop
Some of his early handling looked a bit suspect and his indecision was costly over the goal but he made a fine save blocking Keane?EUR(TM)s overhead kick in the second half.


Tomas Repka
Given a hard time in the first half when Yossi gave him little protection. However looked solid in the second half and put in two thundering tackles in quick succession to end a Sp*rs break.


Paul Konchesky
Another solid match which ought to cement his place in the national squad, unless Sven can find another left back who?EUR(TM)s been out injured for a couple of years to pick in front him. No doubt he?EUR(TM)s looking as we speak.


Danny Gabbidon
Recovered from a slightly shaky start ?EUR" including getting flattened by a dodgy Mido challenge ?EUR" to have a fine second half.


Anton Ferdinand
Good in defence and his goal ?EUR" if not his celebration ?EUR" will probably go into Hammers folklore alongside Jimmy Walker?EUR(TM)s penalty save at Chelsea last year.


Hayden Mullins
Excellent stuff and was a mite unlucky not to get his name on the scoresheet with his early effort went wide. Quietly effective for most of the match, he is almost becoming something of an unsung hero.


Mark Noble
His battle with Davids was the highlight of the maych for me. He gave the Dutchman no respect whatsoever, got stuck in and distributed the ball well. Can he do it at premiership level? What a daft question!


Yossi Benayoun
Failed to stamp his authority on the match though he did get in a couple of shots. Made things difficult for Repka by losing his man too much in the first half though he tightened things up in the second half.


Teddy Sheringham
The shot that Robinson saved apart he didn?EUR(TM)t get any meaningful efforts in on goal though he did do a fair job defensively from time to time by coming deeper to break up the odd home attack.


Matthew Etherington
This match summed up Etherington?EUR(TM)s season in a nutshell. There were times he harried and hassled and looked good going forward. Then there were other spells when he looked almost disinterested. Thankfully on this occasion the good spells narrowly outnumbered the poor.


Teddy Sheringham
The shot that Robinson saved apart he didn?EUR(TM)t get any meaningful efforts in on goal though he did do a fair job defensively from time to time by coming deeper to break up the odd home attack.



Substitutes

Bobby Zamora
(Replaced Harewood, 77) Displayed the usual mix of good and poor touches.


Shaun Newton
(Replaced Repka, 77) Came on and was his usual reliable self in the ten minutes or so he was given.


David Bellion
(Replaced Etherington, 86) Didn?EUR(TM)t really register in the four minutes plus stoppage that he was given in place of Etherington.


Stephen Bywater
Did not play.


Christian Dailly
Did not play.
