I told ESM Jnr that he could only have his season ticket if he accepted that he was heading for years of anguish. Aged 7 he didn’t have a Scooby what I was talking about.

Player Ratings

Robert Green
Not overly tested but brave when required.


Lucas Neill
Strong match and is getting closer to the scoring his first goal for the club.


George McCartney
A decent game. I?EUR(TM)m not 100% convinced by his Premiership pedigree but he played well today.


Anton Ferdinand
A better game ?EUR" no silly free-kicks in dangerous positions and he wisely opted for safety first.


James Collins
Excellent match. The last ditch tackle on Beattie was superb.


Mark Noble
If nothing else the trials and tribulations of this season have at least prompted the reintroduction of Noble into the first team following spells on loan and on the treatment table. A good solid game.


Nigel Reo-Coker
Improved form ?EUR" still needs to learn when to release the ball and when to hold on but he showed a degree of commitment that appeared to be missing earlier in the season.


Yossi Benayoun
More like his old self. Some nice combinations with Tevez and a fine backheel to set up Bobby?EUR(TM)s goal.


Matthew Etherington
A better performance from the point of view of the impressive amount of hard work put in. Even tried to take on his full back from time to time.


Carlos Tevez
This was an impressive performance in a different way from the usual eye-catching stuff. Did a hell of a lot of closing down and chasing back.


Bobby Zamora




Substitutes

Carlton Cole
(Replaced Zamora, 71) I?EUR(TM)m not a big fan but he was sent on to do a job by making a thorough nuisance of himself and, whilst he didn?EUR(TM)t really look like scoring, he caused a few problems in the 20 or so minutes he was on.


Luis Boa Morte
(Replaced Etherington, 74) Nothing of note to report in the last 15 or so he was on.


Jonathan Spector
Did not play.


Calum Davenport
Did not play.


Hayden Mullins
Did not play.
