Premier League
West Ham United 0-0 Newcastle United

Not much to write about for this one. Bit of a non-event all round. Even TFL got in on the act, engineering works messing up my usual rendezvous venue with my Geordie pals, still it was a nice view of the Cutty Sark I suppose.

Player Ratings

Jussi Jaaskelainen
Didn?EUR(TM)t have an awful lot to do but nearly cost us with a couple of rushes of blood to the head.

Guy Demel
Solid enough in defence. Didn?EUR(TM)t get forward much.

Joey O Brien
Might have been on a knife-edge after his early booking but seldom looked troubled.

James Collins
Kept Cisse quiet for the most part.

Winston Reid
Another assured performance without ever being under the cosh. MOTM I suppose.

Mo Diame
Comments to follow...

Gary O Neil
The odd interception here and there but a bit wayward with the passing.

Matt Jarvis
Looked capable of causing problems when we gave him the ball. Which wasn?EUR(TM)t nearly enough.

Ricardo Vaz Te
His most memorable contribution was the eternity it took him to leave the field when substituted.

Kevin Nolan
Brought a double save out of Elliott. That was about it.

Andy Carroll
Should have had a penalty on an otherwise largely quiet afternoon.


Jack Collison
Nothing of note springs to mind of his half hour or so on the pitch.

Matt Taylor
I?EUR(TM)d forgotten that he had come on at all, to be honest.

Joe Cole
No real influence on proceedings ?EUR" though I expect he?EUR(TM)d have appreciated longer than seven minutes in which to have tried.

Stephen Henderson
Did not play.

Emanuel Pogatetz
Did not play.

Mark Noble
Did not play.

Carlton Cole
Did not play.
