No, just them 3 league away wins. What is odd is all three were fairly convincing, when compared to the largely utter dross served up away from home this season.
The weather always helps, oh and how poor were Leicester!

Arni's reaction was pretty much the same!

I thought the same. I wondered what the idiot was on about when he was bleating on about a push when every subsequent reply showed the Leicester lad tripping over through his own doing.

Much better effort.

Fortunate Cresswell didn't go off.

Leicester on hols.

Don't care.

The Cresswell moment had me cacking it for a minute.

1 - 0 up, looking like we're comfortable, one of the back three sent off with no cover on the bench, implode by dropping deep and lose.

That's what you'd expect, that's what I was expecting, so thank heavens for Kavanagh's sensible reffing :shock:

It's one of the photos of the season (along with Bubbles). Captures everything perfectly.

The highlight for me was -

"Sullivan, Gold & the other West Ham mob trying to take their front row seats in the Directors Box but then being told their seats were taken by the women’s Thai football team was the only talking point! They were escorted to the back row..."

These have been interesting all season, especially the teams from 6th downwards. It seems to me everyone has the same complaint of lack of investment, not replacing ageing players, poor managers etc. Just proves there’s not a huge difference between the last Europa spot and the relegation spots.

Also does any fan like their board these days? (Man City aside!)

I'm actually embarrassed watching that **** at the weekend. How can a circus like West Ham turn up here and outplay us? I bet they couldn't believe their luck.

I can only assume that Keown was drafted in as eye candy for the ladies, it can't be for his insight.


He's not wrong !

Certainly a star for us, but at least once a game he attempts a solo worldy rather than a simple lay off to an unmarked player. And mis-kicks frequently.

arnie scares defenders precisely because he's willing to try difficult things, he's unpredictable. If he's so inconsistent when was the last time he had an actual poor game. I don't mean one where the ball hardly ever came near him, I mean one where he failed to make any headway at all. Not in2018.
