It is oddly quiet around here. Especially after one of our best results in some time.

The performance was disciplined, the team was right, the approach was intelligent. We have much to build on here.

I’ll take the quietness on here, if it carries on being loud in the stadium.

There is always going to be less disagreements after a positive win so there will always be less discussion. Wouldn't it be great if it was always this way, I wouldn't have to scour through page after page haha.

More of the same until we're safe at least :scarfer:

Have we ever not used Big Andy while he was available? Other than Yesterday, I cant recall it happening.

A great OV as always when we beat a London rival. Worse than Spurs that lot. :D

Well done lads and the management team. If we continue like the last two performances, I will be well pleased :crest:

Absolutely quality win that. When our next three games were Man City (A), Chelsea (H) and Arsenal (H), I feared the worst and thought a few heavy defeats would kill off any remaining confidence we had for the rest of the season. As it stands, we've got 3 points from that period and if you'd have given me three draws then I would have bitten your hand off. If we can put in another decent performance against Arsenal then regardless of the result, we can come out of this period with our heads held high and prepare to beat the teams around us.

Superb effort all 95 mins for the team, and a very very well worked goal.
One thing that I felt was worth a mention, the crowd, which at times was 100% up and at it. In our area we clapped the lads off at half time, and stayed to applaud them off. I am on the half way line and was amazed to look to both the TB and BM ends and see them still full and standing and applauding, take a bow people, you do yourself credit. :crest:

Just watching the game again. There's a huge number of empty seats in the East stand.

Absolutely loved Saturday. Best win at the OS for me.

It really is worth paying the money and doing all the miles for wins like that. Does drill home how happy/sad West Ham can make you in the space of a few days.

Came back home with such a grin on my face, topped off with a couple of great pints in Euston too.

Atmosphere - fantastic. A cauldron of noise at times.
