93:06 | 2-0 FT

Whisper it quietly, but bar the opening day abomination West Ham have started the season pretty well. We go to Villa Park next where another newly-promoted team await.

Anderson on fire today, what a difference that makes to the point where it was almost Payet-esque. Everyone else stepped up as a result and we could've had 5 or 6 easily on another day, fair play Tim Krul.

Do not understand why the Haller penalty, and it was a penalty, wasn't reviewed by VAR... madness!

Musn't grumble though on what appeared to be a relentless attacking show from our boys, 18 attempts all told :scarfer:

Excellent performance. Should of won that by 5 or 6. Felipe Anderson was simply brilliant in that game.

Second half was beautiful. Anderson on fire. Haller imperious.

More impressively they hardly had a sniff. We were great defensively.

Anderson is a lovely player. Shame he couldn't cap it with a goal but he played very well. I love lanzini at the moment too. I think he's playing nicely. In fact, I think everyone played well. I can't think of one player who didn't impress.

Great great stuff. The penalty has really wound me up as it could be worth a point goal difference. You know it won't be mentioned on motd.....

Anderson MOTM but I thought both Diop and Rice looked back to their best today. Massuaku was excellent too. Delighted for Yarmolenko to get his goal, he always looks like hes going to score to me even when clearly not 100% fit. Could have been 5 or 6 today , a very professional performance by all the players.
3 wins 1 draw and 1 loss + 2 clean sheets - great start to the season. :crest:

Might only be a small thing but it's quite heartening to see us doing a bit more fouling. I wonder if it's been noticed that at times we can just be a bit "nice" - if you can't beat them, join them.

Apparently, they've just survived a very moody decision at SHP, final minute of the match.

Norwich did us a big favour by rarely attacking down the flanks so Arthur and Fred had the easiest game they'll have all season. Diop had a great game and both Anderson and Lanzini did pretty much whatever they wanted.

As others have said, we could have won by five or six and, as the old chestnut goes, Norwich were lucky to get nil.

Anderson's best game for us? It's a bit of a backhanded compliment, but these are the type of games he showed up in last season too. They all count though.

Masuaku and Haller very good, and better from Diop as well.

Think I'm the only one who defended Yarmolenko at halftime so I'm keeping the match ball.

Above Man United and Chelsea in the table, easily our best performance this season, a comfortable clean sheet against an attack that usually gets loadsa goals, happy days!

Anyone see us finishing above Man Utd and Chelsea this season? Two teams who have appointed completely unproven managers. In fact OGS is a proven donkey at Cardiff. Think his win percentage is in the teens since becoming permanent manager.
