2014/15 Match Notes & Ratings

3-2 v Sampdoria (h) 9th August 2014
by Staff Writer



0-0 v Aston Villa (h) 8th November 2014
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Noble) Wreaked havoc. Gives us another option when, like yesterday, we are chasing a game in the dying moments.

0-0 v Aston Villa (h) 8th November 2014
by Raedwulf

(Replaced Noble) I mark subs as a 'five' by default. Not enough time in the game (usually) to default to six. Carroll had less than five minutes, but earned a six - what does that say? Not ready to start; not sure I'd want him to; how will Sam change tactics and formation? But, by 'eck, I'm delighted to see him back on't bench, and didn't 'e do well!

2-0 v Queens Park Rangers (h) 5th October 2014
by Gordon Thrower

Did not play.

0-2 v Malaga (a) 3rd August 2014
by Staff Writer



1-3 v Southampton (h) 30th August 2014
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole) Never got into the match in the 12 minutes afforded to him to do so.

1-3 v Southampton (h) 30th August 2014
by Raedwulf

(Replaced Cole) 15 minutes? He may be good, but he's not a miracle worker. No effect on proceedings.

0-0 v Schalke (a) 2nd August 2014

2-1 v Manchester City (h) 25th October 2014
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Sakho) Did well in breaking up, harrying and blocking to use up valuable time towards the end.

2-1 v Manchester City (h) 25th October 2014
by Raedwulf

(Replaced Sakho) Again a five, simply because he had no time to affect the game.

3-1 v Crystal Palace (a) 23rd August 2014
by Raedwulf

(Replaced Downing) On for 2 minutes of stoppage time. If he doesn't replace VT in the starting line-up soon, will be getting pretty fed-up, I should think!

3-1 v Crystal Palace (a) 23rd August 2014
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Downing) Did ok in the few minutes o stoppage that were available to him.

0-0 v Everton (a) 22nd November 2014
by Staff Writer

tbc

3-1 v Liverpool (h) 20th September 2014
by Raedwulf

(Replaced Valencia) Came on for the final quarter-hour to stiffen the defence. One heart-stopping moment when he went after a loose ball with a long slide, but he won it cleanly and fairly, and that raises him above the standard '5 for a sub'.

3-1 v Liverpool (h) 20th September 2014
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Valencia) Managed to avoid the faux-pas' that have characterised his recent outings and one thundering but perfectly-timed tackle at the end got the crowd going.

Did not play.

0-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 16th August 2014
by Raedwulf

Only had 10 minutes or so at the end, but won a huge cheer for bullying Kaboul into giving a corner away. Time will tell, but looked useful in his brief time on the pitch.

0-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 16th August 2014
by Trevor Twohig

Only had 10 minutes or so at the end, but won a huge cheer for bullying Kaboul into giving a corner away. Time will tell, but looked useful in his brief time on the pitch.

0-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 16th August 2014
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole) Not that it would have been difficult but he was a hell of a lot more mobile than Cole. Made a nuisance of himself and I look forward to seeing a bit more of him.

2-2 v Hull City (a) 15th September 2014
by Raedwulf

(Replaced Sakho) Third and final debutant sub, only had a very few of minutes to stretch his legs and dirty his boots.

 

2013/14 Match Notes & Ratings

1-3 v Norwich City (a) 9th November 2013
by Staff Writer

Little time to have an effect on the game but he'll be happy with the appearance money nonetheless.

0-6 v Manchester City (a) 8th January 2014
by Staff Writer



2-0 v Aston Villa (a) 8th February 2014
by Raedwulf

20 minutes of match practice for Winston, essentially. No errors & a few useful blocks & clearances.

1-4 v Liverpool (a) 7th December 2013
by Staff Writer

Ran around a bit, waved his arms a lot. Little time to do owt else.

3-0 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 6th October 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Took to the field with a huge grin on his face.

0-1 v SC Braga (n) 6th August 2013
by Staff Writer



1-2 v Liverpool (h) 6th April 2014
by Raedwulf

Hardly saw anything of the ball in the less than 10 mins he was on for...

0-1 v Crystal Palace (a) 3rd December 2013
by Staff Writer

Asked to work the flank for the final 15 minutes or so although provided little of note.

0-1 v Crystal Palace (a) 3rd December 2013
by Trevor Twohig

A strange substitution - did little wrong however.

2-1 v Sunderland (a) 31st March 2014
by Raedwulf

10 minutes of anonymity. Definitely did touch the ball, ran around enthusiastically, but was hardly in a position to influence the game.

0-1 v Stoke City (h) 31st August 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Nice to get a run-out I suppose but even as a spot of desperation it looked a bit of a pointless substitution.

3-0 v Fulham (h) 30th November 2013
by Staff Writer



0-0 v Aston Villa (h) 2nd November 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Showed what he can do in the 3 minutes he was given.

0-0 v Aston Villa (h) 2nd November 2013
by Gordon Thrower

I'd have preferred him to have started instead of coming on for all of four minutes.

0-0 v Aston Villa (h) 2nd November 2013
by Rob Chapman

Looked up for it in the 2-3 minutes he was on, clearly demonstrating he has the ability to grab a game by the scruff of the neck when he wants to. I just wish he wanted to more often.

0-0 v Chelsea (a) 29th January 2014
by Staff Writer



0-1 v Hull City (a) 28th September 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Could be worth a start soon.

3-3 v West Bromwich Albion (h) 28th December 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Didn't really add anything to proceedings.

3-3 v West Bromwich Albion (h) 28th December 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Ran around a lot...

0-0 v Swansea City (a) 27th October 2013
by Trevor Twohig

A couple of lively bursts and rightly not penalised for a ridiculous penalty appeal in injury time.

2-1 v Cheltenham Town (h) 27th August 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Did not play.

2-1 v Hull City (h) 26th March 2014

1-3 v Arsenal (h) 26th December 2013
by Trevor Twohig



0-1 v West Bromwich Albion (a) 26th April 2014
by Raedwulf

Had barely 10 minutes and precious little service. Unable to influence proceedings at all.

0-0 v Newcastle United (a) 24th August 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Did not play.

0-3 v Chelsea (h) 23rd November 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Fairly limited involvement in his fifteen minutes on the pitch.

0-3 v Chelsea (h) 23rd November 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Had pretty much the same effect as the man he replaced really.

0-2 v Manchester United (h) 22nd March 2014
by Raedwulf

Struggled on his first start last week; a mere 8 minutes against Man Utd isn't much of a chance to display his abilities. Made one error at the end, getting caught in possession by Fellaini.

3-1 v Southampton (h) 22nd February 2014
by Raedwulf

Did not play.

3-1 v Southampton (h) 22nd February 2014

2-3 v Everton (h) 21st September 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Came on for Nolan. Apparently.

2-3 v Everton (h) 21st September 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Off the pace, Doesn’t cut it at this level.

1-3 v Manchester United (a) 21st December 2013
by Staff Writer



0-1 v Everton (a) 1st March 2014
by Raedwulf

Came on near the end for Demel, who apparently had had tonsilitis during the week. Made a couple of good challenges.

1-2 v Fulham (a) 1st January 2014
by Gordon Thrower

Made a nuisance of himself of sorts but, like Maiga, until the end there was little in the way of support, meaning that we were relying on Clattenburg to actually give some of the fouls perpetrated against him. Fat hope.

2-0 v Swansea City (h) 1st February 2014
by Raedwulf

Got a few minutes at the end to show his enthusiasm, but no more.

2-0 v Swansea City (h) 1st February 2014
by Gordon Thrower

Came in for Nolan and carried on where the skipper left off.

1-3 v Manchester City (h) 19th October 2013
by Gordon Thrower

File this appearance firmly in the file marked: “hiding to nothing”.

0-1 v Crystal Palace (h) 19th April 2014
by Raedwulf

Can't do anything much when 84 minutes have already passed before you're brought on...

1-3 v Newcastle United (h) 18th January 2014
by Staff Writer



2-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 18th December 2013
by Staff Writer

The player Tottenham feared - and they were right to do so. A major hand in the winning goal.

2-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 18th December 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Pace and dribbling always a problem for defences.

2-0 v Cardiff City (h) 17th August 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Might have done better with a late shot but otherwise given little time to have much of an effect.

2-0 v Cardiff City (h) 17th August 2013

1-3 v Stoke City (a) 15th March 2014
by Staff Writer



1-3 v Arsenal (a) 15th April 2014
by Raedwulf

Even less time than his namesake to make a difference.

0-0 v Southampton (h) 14th September 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Slaughtered by the home fans for his ex-Pompey links but little involvement in the final few minutes.

0-0 v Sunderland (h) 14th December 2013
by Trevor Twohig

No threat at all.

0-0 v Sunderland (h) 14th December 2013
by Gordon Thrower

No service. No impact.

0-2 v Manchester City (a) 11th May 2014
by Raedwulf



2-0 v Cardiff City (a) 11th January 2014
by Trevor Twohig



2-0 v Norwich City (h) 11th February 2014
by Raedwulf

Picked up a booking for I'm not sure what. Once again ran around a lot, & scores for enthuiasm, but had little chance to really make a difference.

2012/13 Match Notes & Ratings

4-2 v Reading (h) 19th May 2013

0-0 v Newcastle United (h) 4th May 2013
by Gordon Thrower

No real influence on proceedings – though I expect he’d have appreciated longer than seven minutes in which to have tried.

by Staff Writer

2-0 v Wigan Athletic (h) 20th April 2013
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Diame, 75)
A few nice passes when he came on, which, in this match, was something of a rarity.

2-2 v Manchester United (h) 17th April 2013
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Nolan, 82)
You could have been a hero, Matt. Oh dear.

1-1 v Southampton (a) 13th April 2013

Comments to follow...

2-3 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 25th February 2013
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Diame, 84)
No real contribution.

1-0 v Swansea City (h) 2nd February 2013
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Nolan, 89)
Came on for stoppage time and endeared himself to the home support with a massive header.

1-1 v Queens Park Rangers (h) 19th January 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Did not play.

2-2 v Manchester United (h) 5th January 2013
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced J.Cole, 78)
Most notable contribution was getting something on Collison’s knock-down that nearly led to Cole putting the game beyond reach.

2-1 v Norwich City (h) 1st January 2013
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Jarvis, 85)
Another quiet sub cameo.

1-2 v Everton (h) 22nd December 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole, 87)
Good to see him back – though part of me worries about the possibility that he’s been rushed in view of the injury crisis.

3-1 v Chelsea (h) 1st December 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole, 87)
Splendid cameo. Played Taylor in nicely then remained alert to stick away the rebound.

0-0 v Manchester City (h) 3rd November 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Collins, 84)
Useful few minutes for the youngster.

1-2 v Wigan Athletic (a) 27th October 2012
by Rob Chapman

(Replaced Diame, 73)
His main contribution was not being Diame, who by that stage was a liability.

4-1 v Southampton (h) 20th October 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Tomkins)
Just a cameo for the youngster who was given a couple of minutes to save Tomkins’ legs from further cramp.

1-3 v Arsenal (h) 6th October 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Diame, 82)
They got their third just after he came on so he was on a hiding to nothing really.

1-1 v Sunderland (h) 22nd September 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Vaz Te, 86)
Made two vital contributions to the equaliser if little else of note.

0-0 v Norwich City (a) 15th September 2012
by Robert Watson

(Replaced Vaz Te, 86)
Only got a few minutes but produced a nice piece of skill and looked to give us some flair and creativity, which is much needed.

3-0 v Fulham (h) 1st September 2012
by Stuart Jones

(Replaced Demel, 78)
One chance to score on what was his Premier League debut but he was quickly closed down. Nice to see another Academy product make his debut. Big things have been expected of Rob for a few years, it's time to see if he can deliver.

3-0 v Fulham (h) 1st September 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Demel, 78)
Showed a few good touches – his few appearances last season showed promise and hopefully he’ll get more chances to appear this term, with seven to select from on the bench.

0-3 v Swansea City (a) 25th August 2012
by Tom Kilbey

(Replaced Cole, 81)
Like for like swap with Diame to go with a like for like performance. Did not really figure.

1-0 v Aston Villa (h) 18th August 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole, 81)
Could have crowned his ten minute debut with a goal at the death. Looked keen enough otherwise.

 

2011/12 Match Notes & Ratings

2-1 v Blackpool (n) 19th May 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Did not play.

3-0 v Cardiff City (h) 7th May 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole, 86)
Scored with what may just about have been his only touch. Superb finish.

2-0 v Cardiff City (a) 3rd May 2012
by Staff Writer

(Replaced Collison, 86)
Brought on to see out time and chase down whatever ball came his way.

2-1 v Hull City (h) 28th April 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Nolan, 74)
A welcome return but didn’t really have much time to influence matters.

6-0 v Brighton & Hove Albion (h) 14th April 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Vaz Te, 77)
Another who was looking to impress – might even have done so given a bit more pitch-time.

2-4 v Reading (h) 31st March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole)
Ran around a lot to similar effect to Baldock.

1-1 v Leeds United (a) 17th March 2012
by James May

(Replaced Collison, 81)
Hardly touched the ball but was good to see the highly rated youngster been given a chance by Allardyce.

1-1 v Doncaster Rovers (h) 10th March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Nolan, 80)
Did ok in his short spell at left back which allowed Taylor to push on.

1-1 v Doncaster Rovers (h) 10th March 2012
by Daniel Prescott

(Replaced Nolan, 80)
Damage was already done when he graced the field, no impact.

1-1 v Watford (h) 7th March 2012
by Daniel Prescott

(Replaced O'Brien, 74)
The England under 21 failed to make any impact whatsoever; the story of his season so far (bar his recent superb goalkeeping display at Blackpool).

2-0 v Cardiff City (a) 4th March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Did not play.

0-0 v Crystal Palace (h) 25th February 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Maynard, 73)
Added much-needed movement and pace to the attack and on another day might have had a couple.

4-1 v Blackpool (a) 22nd February 2012
by James May

(Replaced Maynard, 82)
Very little time to effect the game but looked sharp and was involved in the Vaz Te goal.

1-1 v Southampton (h) 14th February 2012
by James May

(Replaced Vaz Te, 71)
Got about the pitch well in the final twenty minutes and was the fresh legs we needed to make sure we saw out a draw.

2-1 v Millwall (h) 4th February 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole, 89)
A couple of nice touches. Daft haircut though.

2-1 v Millwall (h) 4th February 2012
by James May

(Replaced Cole, 89)
Had one chance but after a couple of step overs screwed his shot wide. Looks a big presence up top. Bad hair day.

2-1 v Nottingham Forest (h) 21st January 2012
by James May

(replaced Cole 85) No time to impact the game. Not sure if he even touched the ball.

1-0 v Portsmouth (a) 14th January 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Did not play.

1-2 v Derby County (a) 31st December 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Bouba Diop, 79) A cameo that suggested he might have been capable of causing havoc in the opposition defence had he been given a bit of time to do so. One to watch.

1-0 v Barnsley (h) 17th December 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Did not play.

1-2 v Burnley (h) 3rd December 2011
by East Stand Martin

Did not play.

3-1 v Derby County (h) 26th November 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Faubert, 82) A couple of nice touches, his appearance was more important from a “getting a few minutes run out” point of view, especially with so many fixtures coming up in such a short space of time.

2-1 v Coventry City (a) 19th November 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Baldock, 80) Late replacement for Baldock. Did ok in the ten plus stoppage.

2-0 v Hull City (a) 5th November 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Baldock, 87) His introduction for Baldock was made with one eye on the clock I presume.

4-0 v Blackpool (h) 15th October 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Carew, 80) A quiet ten plus stoppage.

2-2 v Crystal Palace (a) 1st October 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Bentley, 88) A clock-runner-downer really.

0-1 v Ipswich Town (h) 27th September 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Noble, 90) Barely had time to do anything in the 4 mins of stoppage given to him.

1-0 v Peterborough (h) 24th September 2011
by Staff Writer

(replaced Taylor, 90+1) On for the injured Matt Taylor he slipped in at centre half, pushing Winston Reid out to left back and McCartney into midfield. None of it made a great difference for the few minutes of added-on time.

4-3 v Portsmouth (h) 10th September 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Did not play.

4-1 v Nottingham Forest (a) 28th August 2011
by Staff Writer

Did not play.

1-2 v Aldershot Town (h) 24th August 2011
by Staff Writer

(Replaced Piquionne, 69) Little end product and not a single shot on goal but at least he looked up for it, unlike several of his team mates.

2-2 v Leeds United (h) 21st August 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Noble, 82 mins) I couldn’t work out where he was supposed to be playing.

4-0 v Watford (a) 16th August 2011
by Brian Evans

(Replaced Collison, 75 mins) Came on a little late in the game to make a real impression, but looked to get involved at any opportunity. He seems to just have more of a spring in his step, with a marked improvement on attitude, with a point to prove.

1-0 v Doncaster Rovers (a) 13th August 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Sears, 82 mins) Not convinced by him as a winger but he did show some pace, which was a different set of problems for Rovers midfield to think about.

1-0 v Doncaster Rovers (a) 13th August 2011
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Sears, 82 mins) Came on, ran a lot, celebrated a win. That's how to do it.

0-1 v Cardiff City (h) 7th August 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Sears, 82 mins) A couple of late touches but could have done better with his late header.

(Replaced Boa Morte, 60 mins) Goodbye and good luck.

1-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 7th May 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Jacobsen, 64 mins) Looked lively and made you wish he’d been on for longer.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 23rd April 2011
by Staff Writer

(Replaced Boa Morte, 79 mins) Little involvement.

0-3 v Chelsea (a) 23rd April 2011
by Staff Writer

(Replaced Sears, 82 mins) Barely involved.

1-2 v Aston Villa (h) 16th April 2011

(Replaced O'Neil, 62 mins) Didn’t really get into the game. Maybe if he’d had a bit more time perhaps?

0-3 v Bolton Wanderers (a) 9th April 2011
by Staff Writer

(Replaced Parker, 76 mins) Little time to influence proceedings.

by Gordon Thrower

Did not play.

1-2 v Stoke City (a) 13th March 2011

(Replaced Keane, 75 mins) A couple of good touches and was unlucky not to score. Not quite up to pace yet I'd say.

3-1 v Blackpool (a) 2nd February 2011
by Staff Writer

(Replaced Keane, 84 mins) A big lump chucked in to deal with subs Harewood and Beattie. Nothing pretty (apart from his flowing locks perhaps) but he did what he had to do in those frantic, final few minutes.

2009/10 Match Notes & Ratings

1-1 v Manchester City (h) 9th May 2010
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Diamanti, 87 mins) A few minutes for the youngster at the end. There'll be tougher challenges.

2-3 v Fulham (a) 3rd May 2010
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Behrami, 82 mins) If he was brought on to provide width he failed to do so. There again he only had nine minutes plus stoppage to make a mark.

0-1 v Stoke City (h) 27th March 2010

(Replaced Mido, 84 mins) Had one very good chance that he just failed to convert. Still looking less than 100 per cent.

1-3 v Wolverhampton Wanderers (h) 23rd March 2010
by Rob Chapman

(Replaced McCarthy, 75 mins) At last: guile, desire and application. A sublimely taken goal and one of the only players prepared to put his boot through the big round white thing (no, not Frank Lampard).

1-3 v Wolverhampton Wanderers (h) 23rd March 2010
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced McCarthy, 75 mins) Hallelujah - someone who had a decent game. Found row Z on a couple of occasions before finally hitting the target in the third minute of injury time.

0-3 v Manchester United (a) 23rd February 2010
by Staff Writer

(Replaced Diamanti, 75 mins) Featured for the final quarter-of-an-hour, the fact he actually played must be considered a bonus.

3-0 v Hull City (h) 21st February 2010
by Daniel Prescott

(Replaced Diamanti, 85 mins) Not enough time to cause any problems for the Hull defence. But always a welcome face at the Boleyn.

1-2 v Burnley (a) 6th February 2010
by Rob Chapman

(Replaced Noble, 77 mins) Came on and scored a goal. Can’t argue with that really. Almost got a second too. Not really on long enough to suggest whether he in the “fox in the box” West Ham have been missing since Bellamy, or arguably even Defoe, but seemed to have a natural striker’s positional sense which bodes well.

0-0 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 30th January 2010

2008/09 Match Notes & Ratings

2-1 v Middlesbrough (h) 24th May 2009
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Collison, 72 mins) Same as Tristan really. So long and good luck in court.

0-3 v Liverpool (h) 9th May 2009
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Boa Morte, 80 mins) Nice to see the youngsters getting some match time but the likelihood of his being able to affect a match that had long since gone was minimal.

1-0 v Stoke City (a) 2nd May 2009
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Di Michele, 89 mins) Again not on long enough to have any effect other than running down the clock.

0-1 v Chelsea (h) 25th April 2009

(Replaced Boa Morte, 72 mins) Like Sears, failed to make an impression.

2-0 v Sunderland (h) 4th April 2009

1-0 v Manchester City (h) 21st February 2009

(Replaced Spector, 85 mins) Not really on long enough to influence matters.

1-2 v Bolton Wanderers (a) 21st February 2009
by John Simkin

(Replaced Spector, 85 mins) Sears must be feeling terribly frustrated by the way he is being treated by Zola. At the moment he is not being given a fair chance to show what he can do.

1-1 v Middlesbrough (h) 14th February 2009
by John Simkin

(Replaced Noble, 74 mins) Despite the injury to Behrami he was left on the bench. He was also ignored when Cole had to come off and he was only given the last 16 minutes to show what he could do. A good dead ball kicker, his corners were a marked improvement on those provided by Noble. Provided the cross for Illunga’s equalizing goal.

1-1 v Middlesbrough (h) 14th February 2009
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Noble, 74 mins) Looked quite useful on the ball and gave us an option of running at players that had been lacking until he replaced Noble. Maybe worth a start soon?

(replaced Noble, 81) The rock that Curbishley turns to in times of strife. Once again he did his job.

4-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 30th August 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Noble, 81) Steady run out that tightened things up in the closing stages.

4-1 v Macclesfield Town (h) 27th August 2008
by Graeme Howlett

(replaced Sears, 58) An excellent performance - scored a poachers goal and had about six shots (all on target and generally well hit). One great chest trap and volley on the run, and he is very quick; if only we could pass the ball in a way that would allow him to run onto it sometimes...

0-3 v Manchester City (a) 24th August 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Etherington, 74) Showed more presence in his few minutes than Etherington had all match. Unfortunately that wasn’t too difficult a task.

0-3 v Manchester City (a) 24th August 2008

(replaced Solano, 80) Also failed to make an impression.

1-4 v Manchester United (a) 3rd May 2008

(replaced Mullins, 75) His introduction was too little too late – we had already settled back into defensive mode.

1-4 v Manchester United (a) 3rd May 2008

2-2 v Newcastle United (h) 26th April 2008

(replaced Ljungberg, 90+4) No time to have any impact. Received a warm reception by both sets of fans.

2-2 v Newcastle United (h) 26th April 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Ljungberg, 90+4) Barely put a foot wrong in the 30 seconds or so he was on the pitch. Really not on long enough to register but the boss needs a mark for his database!

2-1 v Derby County (h) 19th April 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Ljungberg, 90+2) Not really on for long enough to make a contribution, though from the booing that heralded his arrival you’d have been forgiven for thinking that all that had been bad in the previous 90 minutes had been his fault.

0-1 v Portsmouth (h) 8th April 2008

1-1 v Everton (a) 22nd March 2008

(replaced Parker, 82) A long way to come for just eight minutes on the pitch.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 17th March 2008
by Alex Shilling

(replaced Ljungberg, 85) Had his name sung throughout the game by fans, is popular as ever. Kept the ball well when he came on.

by East Stand Martin

(replaced Ljungberg, 70) A bit more running than of late but failed to cause too many problems.

(replaced Ljungberg, 70) A bit more running than of late but failed to cause too many problems.

2-1 v Manchester United (h) 29th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

(replaced Ljungberg, 70) He didn't appear to do much but his introduction gave the team more attacking thrust at a time when the game seemed to be slipping away.

1-1 v Reading (h) 26th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

Did not play.

0-2 v Everton (h) 15th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

(replaced Mullins, 79) It is sad to see a youngster go through an experience like that, but it is one which will convince Curbishley that he is either not ready or not the answer. The latter is more probable.

0-2 v Everton (h) 15th December 2007
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Mullins, 79) Brought on to add a bit of width and balance to the left but failed to take his marker on and put over one terrible cross.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 1st December 2007
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Etherington, 79) Bustled a bit but probably needed more time to make a real impression.

1-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 24th November 2007

(replaced Bowyer, 72) Solid enough without really registering on the radar.

1-1 v Bolton Wanderers (h) 4th November 2007
by Graeme Howlett

(replaced Bowyer, 85) Got booked, nearly hit the corner flag with one shot and was on when Bolton equalised. But like Spector, a central midfielder he is not.

2-1 v Coventry City (a) 30th October 2007
by Graeme Howlett

(replaced Ferdinand, 85) Did enough to keep City at bay.

0-1 v Aston Villa (a) 6th October 2007
by Alex Shilling

(replaced Etherington, 81) Decent when he came on for the last five minutes or so. Put in a great cross for Carlton Cole.

(replaced Etherington, 81) Made no major impression in the few minutes he played.

0-1 v Arsenal (h) 28th September 2007

(replaced Bowyer, 83) Ineffective.

3-0 v Middlesbrough (h) 15th September 2007

(replaced Bellamy, 76) Looks like a player who knows he has no future at the club.

1-1 v Wigan Athletic (h) 25th August 2007
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Bellamy, 75) Had a fine spell. Linked up with Ashton well and set up Bowyer nicely for the goal.

0-2 v Manchester City (h) 11th August 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

(Replaced McCartney, 62) Painfully unfit, his touch betrayed him. When will we see him at his best again? One thing's for sure, we can't wait for it because as it stands, we're not going to score many goals.

by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Tevez, 82) Only on for a few minutes but still had enough time to create a goalscoring chance, which Schwarzer was forced to block.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (a) 17th March 2007
by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Tevez, 83) Barely featured although it was good to see him on the field again. Hopefully he can now start repaying some of the £5m we paid for him.

3-4 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 4th March 2007
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Etherington, 82) Another goal pretty much guaranteeing him top goalscorer. Some nice runs. Better than our other options.

0-4 v Charlton Athletic (a) 24th February 2007
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Mullins, 72) If the idea of bringing him on was to give us some width it failed.

0-1 v Watford (h) 10th February 2007
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Quashie, 80) Rightfully dropped, which was a start. His substitution failed to produce anything noteworthy.

3-0 v Brighton & Hove Albion (h) 6th January 2007
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Boa Morte, 73) Executed a sweet cross for the third goal; the ball was one of those ‘defenders nightmare’ deliveries.

3-0 v Brighton & Hove Albion (h) 6th January 2007
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Boa Morte, 73) A lively 10 minutes or so containing a shot and a cross for the third.

1-2 v Portsmouth (h) 26th December 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

(Replaced Spector, 69) Surprisingly decent at right midfield/ wing back/ whatever it was we changed to by then.

0-0 v Fulham (a) 23rd December 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Harewood, 85) Given five minutes to shore up the defence following the ref’s mental aberration.

1-0 v Manchester United (h) 17th December 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Etherington, 77) Linda came on to shore up the defence in the closing minutes and performed admirably.

0-2 v Everton (a) 3rd December 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Spector, 84) A long way off of what he should be – looked very sloppy. Gave the ball away for the second goal.

0-2 v Everton (a) 3rd December 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

(Replaced Spector, 84) Has hardly played so I don't want to be too harsh. I'll call his short cameo... interesting. At best.

1-0 v Sheffield United (h) 25th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Zamora, 73) Put himself about a bit but ought to have nicked the second when through on goal.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Etherington, 81) Like too many others, good positioning and attacking bursts were let down by poor crossing.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Etherington, 81) Got into a couple of good left wing positions but, as has been our problem for a while, the cross was lacking.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Etherington, 81) Made a few late bursts down the flank but again the delivery was poor.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

(Replaced Etherington, 81) Tried to get forward in the little time he was on. Put some good crosses in.

1-0 v Arsenal (h) 6th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Zamora, 62) A super cameo from the oldest player in the league. The little touches and glanced passes were first class, and his vision was excellent - summed up by the one two with Etherington that led to the winning goal.

1-0 v Arsenal (h) 6th November 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 62) Every pass was accurate, he held the ball up well and brought other players into the game intelligently. Played a vital part in the goal.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 29th October 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced McCartney, 89) A most bizarre substitution (central midfielder on for left-back?) that almost cost us the game.

1-2 v Chesterfield (a) 24th October 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced McCartney, 69) The norm from the Konch of 2006/2007.

1-2 v Chesterfield (a) 24th October 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced McCartney, 69) Seemed to be doing okay until he gave away the free kick that led to the deciding goal.

0-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 22nd October 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Harewood, 82) The reasons for his arrival are getting spoken of more than his cameo role.

0-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 22nd October 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Harewood, 82) A bit unfortunate to see his header cleared otherwise little to note.

0-2 v Portsmouth (a) 15th October 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Benayoun, 86) Not quite sure what his introduction so late in the proceedings was supposed to achieve but whatever it was it didn’t appear to work.

0-2 v Portsmouth (a) 15th October 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Benayoun, 86) Had no time to make an impact.

0-1 v Reading (h) 1st October 2006

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Mears, 67) Forced into an unfamiliar right-back role he did ok. Unique amongst those who took part in the match in that Parker actually got booked when he kicked him.

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Mears, 67) Good to see Hayden play again. I want to see him start, even if it means to defensive players in the centre of the park.

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Mears, 67) Many would shiver at the thought of Mullins playing at right-back again. But to be fair, he didn't really put a foot wrong today.

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

(Replaced Mears, 67) I feel sorry for him. He is a far better footballer right now than the captain and has done nothing deserving of a place on the bench. Ok, Mascherano is obviously a better player. Doesn’t mean they can’t play together.

0-1 v Palermo (h) 14th September 2006

(Replaced Zamora, 78) Didn’t really get involved.

1-1 v Aston Villa (h) 10th September 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 83) Some good knock downs and brought some variety to the attack. Might be worth an earlier run out some time Bobby’s form permitting.

1-1 v Aston Villa (h) 10th September 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Zamora, 83) Did little of note.

1-2 v Liverpool (a) 26th August 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Zamora, 83) Sat behind the Cole attempting to bolster the midfield for the finale.

1-2 v Liverpool (a) 26th August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 83) A clever free kick caused consternation though he didn’t really have time to influence things.

1-1 v Watford (a) 22nd August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 83) Disgraceful. He has now gone about seven minutes without a goal! Not really given much time to influence things.

1-1 v Watford (a) 22nd August 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Zamora, 83) Alan Pardew was perhaps hoping that Cole would repeat his heroics of Saturday when he scored after being on the pitch for less than 30 seconds. Sadly it wasn't to be.

3-1 v Charlton Athletic (h) 19th August 2006

(Replaced Harewood, 90+2) Good goal, but anything more than a six is too much since his game lasted for two minutes.

3-1 v Charlton Athletic (h) 19th August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Harewood, 90+2) Can’t really argue with that start!

3-1 v Charlton Athletic (h) 19th August 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Harewood, 90+2) 24 seconds after coming on he had scored his first goal for the club. Not a bad record.

1-1 v Olympiakos (h) 12th August 2006
by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Mears, 45) Very positive bombing forward on the right side; looked shaky in defence though.

(Replaced Benayoun 90) Came on with just seconds remaining.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 16th October 2005

(Replaced Etherington, 82) Not really on for long enough to influence matters.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 16th October 2005
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Etherington, 82) Gave the Hammers a fresh turn of pace as they sought to come back from a two goal deficit. They half made it.

1-1 v Sunderland (a) 1st October 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Repka, 67) Football genius came on and calmed things down a lot during the closing stages.

1-1 v Sunderland (a) 1st October 2005
by Greg Mansell

(Replaced Repka, 67) Solid. Offered much needed steel to a wobbly display from all four of our back line.

1-1 v Sunderland (a) 1st October 2005
by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Repka, 67) Sent on in place of Tomas Repka, Dailly played at centre-half for the first time this season whilst Danny Gabbidon moved to right-back. Dealt comfortably with much that was thrown at him for the remaining half-hour. A steadying and calming influence.

2-1 v Fulham (a) 17th September 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Harewood, 87) Some nice touches but not really on for long enough to have too much of a say in matters.

2-1 v Fulham (a) 17th September 2005
by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Harewood, 87) Came on, darted around for the remaining seven minutes, and went home. Barely had a touch but kept the Fulham back four on thier toes for the remaining moments.

by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Mullins, 90) Came on towards the end to give Mullins a well-earned rest.

(Replaced Harewood, 90) On for only a few minutes but proved an excellent outlet to relieve the pressure on the back four as time ticked away.

0-0 v Newcastle United (a) 20th August 2005
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Harewood, 90) You can't help feeling a little sorry for Bobby. Despite scoring the goals that took us back to the big time he's barely featured thus far in the Prem. Came on, had one chance, final whistle.

2004/05 Match Notes & Ratings

1-0 v Preston North End (n) 30th May 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Walker, 87) Got an unexpected outing due to Jimmy’s injury. Coped well with the resulting free-kick which was as hard as it got for him.

1-0 v Preston North End (n) 30th May 2005
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Walker, 87) 35,000 Hammers held their breath as Bywater entered the fray after several months on the sidelines to replace the stricken Jimmy Walker. But full credit to him, he dealt with everything admirable as Preston pushed on in the final few minutes.

2-0 v Ipswich Town (a) 18th May 2005

(Replaced Sheringham, 79) Mr Unpopular, his introduction allowed Newton to push forward but, like Newton, he was missing at the far post when the equaliser was scored.

1-0 v Gillingham (a) 22nd February 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Reo-Coker, 80) A fresh pair of legs. Got a few tackles in towards the end.

5-0 v Plymouth Argyle (h) 20th February 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Noble, 48) His first touch was still occasionally lacking but he did very well with the ball laid off his chest. Some good positive runs caused Plymouth a lot of problems and his pass across to Fletch for Teddy’s first was something of which Teddy himself would have been proud. The odd wayward pass/shot aside this was a decent, if, at times erratic performance.

5-0 v Plymouth Argyle (h) 20th February 2005

(Replaced Noble, 48) Good pace, but his passing/crossing is pretty awful.

1-0 v Wolves (h) 2nd October 2004
by Gordon Thrower

Continues to rub the noses of those who, like me I admit, were concerned at our signing of another old forward whose better days were in the past. It's a real shame that three games a week is probably too punishing a schedule for him at the moment.

1-0 v Wolves (h) 2nd October 2004
by East Stand Martin

His introduction had a positive impact on the game. Some intellectual passing, the goal, and playing as more of a striker today with Harewood going out wide. This seemed a lot more effective, and combining the work winning aerial challenges, and the goal, he had a good game.

by Nick Homer

(Replaced Rebrov, 76) Set up the goal, defended superbly and scared a few people when he hugged Teddy. Great debut.

1-0 v Reading (h) 10th August 2004
by Richard Osborne

(Replaced Rebrov, 76) The dashing hunk of a man strutted out onto the field for his debut with a swagger that would be fit for any catwalk. Instantly got the better of their left winger in the challenge, looked comfortable on the ball, passed well and delighted in his runs. A very classy player and should be a great asset to the club. Fooled everyone with a nice turn and layoff for the goal.

1-0 v Reading (h) 10th August 2004
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Rebrov, 76) I like the look of this guy. Well, you know what I mean. Looked dangerous going forward, got in some good crosses and, at the death when required, got in some solid defensive work.
