Not working this afternoon. French TV is showing the match in full. 14 minutes in and I'm enjoying it so far. The French commentators describing West Ham as asphyxiating Palace.

Now I maybe seeing things that are not there, but last night Kouyate had his best game this season, Could the reason be that Sakho has left. maybe just maybe he was getting in Kouyates head, but then again it could just be co-incidence

take the draw and a fair result good to see our lot still at it past 70 mins.

kouyate was the beast again noble the leader and Mario very impressive.

now add a striker and we may surprise a few people

good game good atmosphere and I got a Bovril !

I'm surprised. Happy with a point thought we'd be done over given the climate.

Hernandez did put that header straight at the keeper, but his movement before it was brilliant.

I’m not a Hernandez fan, but he played a lot better in this game than his previous performances. Let’s see if he can add some consistency and clinical finishing back into his repertoire - the tools one trades on. Given the team we had out, we showed a lot of character and Kouyate deserved his MotM

said yesterday that a hard fought draw could be the worst possible result as it doesn't really make us any more safe but could just about convince the dildos to put their chequebook away (was it ever out?). especially with zab's convincing go at being a DM.

I didn't boo him for feigning injury. I booed because the **** hobbled back on the pitch only to go down again after three steps.

I wonder if the damage would have been so bad had he not opted to walk on his ankle unaided slowly across the pitch and then back on to it.

Never nice to see a player injured but tactical time wasting with injuries has become so common it’s understandable that it gets the fans riled. Ironically I felt the atmosphere created from Sako coming back on wound the fans and players up and resulted in the equaliser.
