Watched this whilst on holiday in Malta!

Amazing result...remember us beating Arsenal away and I think this followed that...we won 2 away that we should have lost and lost 2 at home that we should of won!

I broke into my friends house, who was on holiday, to watch it, in the cold under a blanket.

The house is always incredibly messy and there is always a bottle of scotch laying around, which I helped myself to.

Winston Reid gave the best performance I've ever seen from a West Ham player and for a brief moment the relentless monotony of life wasn't quite so enveloping.

Read the title and thought it was gonna be about Mark E Smith.

Here he is reading out the final scores from a few years back.

He was absolutely superb, and Diafra Sakho gave one those performances that make you wonder what might have been if he wasn't such an oddball

Dull, Uninteresting and totally Irrelevant fact:

Mark E Smith was born the day before me - 5th of March 1957

That is all.

The Alamo, I remember it well.

Antonio's debut, coming on as a sub, we were clinging on all the second half.

Their manager who I think may have been Pelle at the time advanced Yaya 15 yards further up the pitch for the second half and we simply couldn't clear our lines more than 20 yards from goal.Noble kept looking up and seeing a mountain in front of him.Nobes looked ****ing petrified.

One of those wins when you leave the oppositions ground knowing you've nicked the points and on any other day would hae lost 8-2.The best wins of them all.

One of my mates who I stand next to, took his 7 year old along - that was his first season as an ASTH - and we promised him it was always going to be like that, famous away wins, West Ham United taking the piss.............he's now an embittered 11 year old, cursing his old man for being a Hammer when all the other kids in school have dads who support Arsenal or Spurs.

Too late young man, you're one of us until the day you drop.....

Another irrelevant fact, we have the same birthday.

We only lost one game to the traditional top 6 that season. And nobody did the double over us.

Watched it on the telly - I can still remember Moses' goal but I've forgotten Sakho's , not sure why - then came the inevitable backs to the wall scenario - we'd worked our socks off at The Emirates but we knew Manchester City had more penetrating guile and that eventually they were bound to equalise .....but no , we kept them at bay same as we'd done the Arsenal .

Speaking of Old Vic , I never knew he'd gone on loan to Fenerbahce [ well I did obviously cos I just said so ] .

Think I enjoyed 2015/16 more than I did '85/86 .

Seem to remember that was the last year before our skipper started convincing us before w faced them that if City are on form we can do little to prevent a drubbing. I presume Norwich (and all those others who kept the score down) just caught them on a lucky off day then.

Watched it at my middle niece's wedding. Never have so many Englishmen had cause to thank a pseudo-American with a VPN and NBC sports subscription :)

I think the overall vibe was that of mild disbelief: how the f*** did we ever get a player of the calibre of Payet? I think we were all waiting to wake up. Which of course we did a year and a half later ....

Such a shame he wasted his career going to Chelsea

I'm sure his millions in the bank make him not bothered but a club our size he would have been a starter for a far few years for sure

Always rated him

Winston in his pomp. Hart in goal. The corner off Kolarov that Sakho ultimately scored from should have been adjudged a goal kick. The weird anti-climax of our second goal – surely the least wild celebrations of any goal we've ever scored to go two up at a CL team? – due to the ugly scramble to get it in and waiting for a flag, Sakho collapsing in a heap afterwards rather than celebrating, and the sense that it was still so early in the game that it didn't feel remotely decisive. Antonio's debut late on – Slav displaying his perverse habit of bringing on players to see out tight games who can't control the ball (he did it with Enner, repeatedly, that season. Leicester away showing the logical outcome of that habit). The last 35 mins is really just a blur of the ball being crossed in by De Bruyne and headed away by Reid. I say it seems like a blur that I have no memory of, but possibly it's actually all that happened in that last half hour?

Really should've won the FA Cup that season. We were the best team left in it but couldn't make our superiority vs Man U tell. And we should have finished 4th but signed Emineke in the Jan transfer window instead of a proper striker, and massively bottled our last couple of games.

Such a shame that such a phenemonal, record-breaking season for us should ultimately fizzle out in enormous disappointment, leaving us perenially empty-handed.

Yours,
A miserable West Ham fan
