WTF is she doing on that programme? Embarrassing from Sky.

No you can't - and she is clearly on that show as a bit of fluff.

But in a way that makes the comment even funnier.
Yeah that's a good.point actually. Like Sky could only be arsed getting on whoever was kicking around the studio at the time.

It's miserable and grey here in Kent but Oh What a Beautiful Morning it is!
Still on a high after last night, throat feels like I've been eating sandpaper. A great night and we saved our best performance on and off the pitch for our N17 neighbours. Absolutely marvellous.

Don't know if it's been touched on this thread but was anyone near the corner of the West Stand near Bobby Moore Lower when Lanzini scored? From where we were in BMU, it looked like someone got hurt in the surge when Manu came over to celebrate?

After 40 odd years of following the Hammers i know that we are always most likely to win when the odds are long against us !!

I see The Flying Cock's gone into meltdown. :lol:

We're glad you like our new stadium, chaps.

Please visit again next season so you can get sent home packing with your tails between your legs.

Cheers.

Still buzzing this morning after a very sleepness night.

The best all round performance this season. Not one bad player. Right from the off we were up for it. Pace, skill, determination. We properly showed them up.

Could easily have been 3 or 4.

There is hope for us next season after all.

Hate the ground and the regime, but still the same old West Ham. What a night.

To those carrying on next year, I hope you get plenty more games like that.

The Friday night game has enabled the results to get lots of mentions too before any of the other weekend games. I still smile every time I hear it.

Would be funny if Chelsea now lost this weekend and go on to win it by a tiny margin

Always worse thinking what if we'd just beaten West Ham?

I've only just seen the goal on TV - Christ Ayew was making a right old mess of it before Manuel came in and sorted it - not sure who's worse Andre or Calleri - gotta keep hold of Manuel and Antonio, the rest can largely do one - anyone else got a sore throat n head combo :scarfer:

I thought the price on us was way too high but I didn't fancy jinxing us by putting money on. I only ever bet against us.

I had £25 on us to win and a £5 free bet on us to win either 1-0, 2-1 or 3-2

generous odds I thought

up £230 :scarfer:

I was strangely confident all week that we would get something last night, which I think was down to history and our recent solid performances.

However, I have to say my heart sank when I saw Arthur was out and the other changes Slav had made. I thought we had no chance with that team.

So pleased they proved me wrong. Fantastic performance and great team selection from Slav with spot on subs for good measure.

The only person on ssn last night that wanted to talk about how well we played was Henry... the others Riley, Pards, Jamie and the commentators wanted to talk about Spurs losing it.... even after the first spuds interview Where player said we played deep... first thing Henry wanted to say was how wrong he was and that we were pressing...

It wasn't until Henry and Jamie went to the highlight screen on thier own that the conversation went on about how well we played... as soon as it went back to the rest of panel it went back to Spurs losing it...

Once Henry got Jamie and Pards agreeing and talking about how well we played Riley kept going back to Spurs losing it again...

If it wasn't for Henry anyone would think it was a Spurs love in ....

We are treated so negatively by ssn....

Don't forget that helmet Smith after we scored.

What a performance. What a night! Made even better by the fact I had a fiver on 1-0 Lanzini at 225-1. That speculative punt returned over a grand! My buttocks were clenched pretty ****ing tightly when Fletcher had that late one on one, I'll tell you that much.

Buzzing all round. That's my last game of the season (I'm giving my Liverpool ticket up to my sister, who's been in NZ for the past couple of years and hasn't been to the new gaff yet), and what a way to go out.
