Experience, not talent, won the UEFA Cup contest at Upton Park. Luckily, the tie is far from over, so West Ham should travel to Palermo in two weeks full of belief. The Sicilians nearly threw away a three goal lead on Sunday in their opening Seria A game, so proof exists that they (a) concede home goals and (b) can rest on their laurels too much. If the club’s last foray in European football is anything to go by, losing one-nil at home is not the end of the World. The Intertoto Cup final in 1999 proved this.
