Leicester City

2-2: Sunday, 17th April

(Replaced Zarate) No significant contribution.

Arsenal

3-3: Saturday, 9th April

(Replaced Sakho) Ran gamely for the short time he was on.

AFC Bournemouth

3-4: Saturday, 22nd August

(Replaced Sakho) Fine goal gave us a glimpse of his potential. I suppose it would be too much to hope for him to keep repeating the exercise at regular intervals.

Leicester City

1-2: Saturday, 15th August

(Replaced Zarate) No significant contribution.

Arsenal

2-0: Sunday, 9th August

(Replaced Sakho) Ran gamely for the short time he was on.

Arsenal

2-0: Sunday, 9th August

(Replaced Sakho) One we'd though unlikely to every wear a West Ham short again but brought in as emergency cover for Carroll and Valencia.

Astra Giurgiu

1-2: Thursday, 6th August

(Replaced Noble) I feel quite sorry for him. He must have thought that the days of being used as a lone striker (a role to which he is ill-suited) had disappeared along with the last manager. Sadly while we have injury and suspensions he’s destined to be stuck in the job until a new striker comes in the front door.

Modibo Maiga did not play for West Ham during this season.

Fulham

1-2: Wednesday, 1st January

No service, no support. Gotta feel sorry for him.

Tottenham Hotspur

2-1: Wednesday, 18th December

All is forgiven Modibo - best game so far.

Tottenham Hotspur

2-1: Wednesday, 18th December

Outstanding. Won the header that led to the first goal, scored the second and rattled the woodwork from 30 yards. That's what we paid millions for.

Sunderland

0-0: Saturday, 14th December

Tries hard - fails miserably.

Sunderland

0-0: Saturday, 14th December

Not for the first time I felt a bit sorry for him. Won a number of headers that nobody else seemed interested in getting on the end of.

Liverpool

1-4: Saturday, 7th December

He's hustling and bustling, credit where credit's due - but you sometimes wonder if he wouldn't be more effective in a performance of Swan Lake by the Royal Ballet Company. Unlucky not to register with a great header from a Jarvis centre.

Crystal Palace

0-1: Tuesday, 3rd December

Nothing doing really.

Crystal Palace

0-1: Tuesday, 3rd December

Very little impact in the half-hour or so he was on.

Chelsea

0-3: Saturday, 23rd November

That miss will have done his confidence no good at all. Shame really as a goal then might have seen us get back into the game.

Chelsea

0-3: Saturday, 23rd November

Presumably introduced in hope of repeating his exploits in the corresponding fixture last year. Even when presented with a sitter he fluffed his lines.

Norwich City

1-3: Saturday, 9th November

Did not play.

Aston Villa

0-0: Saturday, 2nd November

Did not play.

Did not play.

Tottenham Hotspur

3-0: Sunday, 6th October

Did not play.

Hull City

0-1: Saturday, 28th September

Gettting better - but still little goalscoring threat.

Everton

2-3: Saturday, 21st September

Poor. Again.

Everton

2-3: Saturday, 21st September

Looked interested and disinterested at different spells during the game. I suspect that Petric's return to match fitness will result in our not seeing much of him.

Southampton

0-0: Saturday, 14th September

Not cutting the mustard at all.

Stoke City

0-1: Saturday, 31st August

Ok we’re not exactly playing to his strengths but he simply didn’t look interested. Even the chasing down of opponents looked like token “efforts”.

Newcastle United

0-0: Saturday, 24th August

A poor display really. Did put the ball in the net but not enough of a threat.

Cardiff City

2-0: Saturday, 17th August

Difficult for the lad as, when we play him in on the deck he looks useful. Did a lot of useful chasing down, though he was a little too ponderous in getting back onside on occasion for my liking.

Reading

4-2: Sunday, 19th May

(Replaced Ricardo Vaz Te, 81)
Looked lively during his spell off the bench. Set up Nolan's third.

Manchester United

2-2: Wednesday, 17th April

Did not play.

Norwich City

2-1: Tuesday, 1st January

(Replaced Vaz Te, 82)
Not much to write home about in the eight minutes plus stoppage he was on.

Everton

1-2: Saturday, 22nd December

(Replaced O'Neil)
A bit unlucky that he didn’t get a corner from the effort that Distan deflected wide but probably ought to have done better with the shot anyway.

Chelsea

3-1: Saturday, 1st December

(Replaced Cole, 87)
Splendid cameo. Played Taylor in nicely then remained alert to stick away the rebound.

Manchester City

0-0: Saturday, 3rd November

Did not play.

Southampton

4-1: Saturday, 20th October

(Replaced Carroll, 823)
The goal gave us a tantalising glimpse of what he can do. Just a shame our system doesn’t provide for two out and out strikers.

Arsenal

1-3: Saturday, 6th October

Did not play.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 22nd September

(Replaced Vaz Te, 86)
Made two vital contributions to the equaliser if little else of note.

Norwich City

0-0: Saturday, 15th September

(Replaced Cole, 57)
Worked hard when he came on but like Cole didn’t get a lot of service or support - but he’s still new to the English game and you feel he'll be a good investment given time.

Fulham

3-0: Saturday, 1st September

Did not play.

Fulham

3-0: Saturday, 1st September

Swansea City

0-3: Saturday, 25th August

(Replaced Cole, 62)
Similar story to that of Carlton Cole. Was a spectator upfront, and the lack of service to our front men is something that definitely needs to be worked on so that we have an effective outlet when playing away from home.

Aston Villa

1-0: Saturday, 18th August

(Replaced Cole, 81)
Could have crowned his ten minute debut with a goal at the death. Looked keen enough otherwise.
