Chelsea 1-0 West Ham United 

Saturday, 18th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

As far as I was concerned today, we emerged with a creditable 0-0 draw. This was down to the fact that those educationally sub-normal f*ckwits at Transport for London kindly stranded me at Green Park tube station and I missed the only goal of the game.

Player Ratings

Robert Green
Surprisingly rarely called into action although he won't be happy with his positioning for the free-kick.

Jonathan Spector
Had a fairly decent games against one of the world's trickiest wingers. Rarely had the opportunity to burst forward.

Paul Konchesky
Defended solidly although made little impact when pushed up late on in the game.

Anton Ferdinand
A couple of lapses in concentration could have proved costly but for Chelsea's profligacy in front of goal.

Danny Gabbidon
Another solid performace, last year's POTY is rapidly finding his form.

Hayden Mullins
Worked extremely hard and made his fair share of tackles.

Nigel Reo-Coker
Ran into a number of blind alleys when in possession and provided little in the final third of the field.

Lee Bowyer
Struggled to get into the game, although against one of the best midfields in the world; nothing to be ashamed of.

Matthew Etherington
Ethers worked hard on the flank although all too often the final delivery was sub-standard.

Carlos Tevez
He's played on the left, today he was on the right - not bad for someone who apparently thrives on playing down the middle. Worked very hard for little gain.

Bobby Zamora
Absolutely worked his socks off - but didn't manage a single shot on goal.


Marlon Harewood
(Replaced Zamora, 71) Never really at the races after coming on with 20 to play.

Teddy Sheringham
(Replaced Bowyer, 81) Anonymous, barely had a touch.

George McCartney
(Replaced Etherington, 81) Made a few late bursts down the flank but again the delivery was poor.

Gabor Kiraly
Did not play.

Christian Dailly
Did not play.
