Excuse the brevity and scattered nature of my thoughts, but my heart rate remains high after the lack of Success at the end of that match. With that said, an away draw is a positive, right? Then why does it feel so wrong?
With the league break coming to a close, it seems fitting to evaluate the Hammers squad as it stands and look towards the future as well.
I hope you'll forgive me, but I'm straying a little off the West Ham garden path this week. Instead I'm going to go back in time a little.
Despite the heartbreak of an injury time equaliser and the torture of having to watch Tony Pulis organise an impromptu ‘Who can kick the ball out of London Stadium?’ competition for his players, there were a number of positives to take away from Saturday’s draw against West Bromwich Albion.
A day or two have gone by, but the sting is still there. A 94th-minute equaliser takes the absolute elation out of a crowd that was celebrating the home squad, and replaced it with utter heartbreak. But how can a draw and a point from a team the Hammers are chasing hurt so bad?
For many West Ham supporters, following the club is an easy decision.
Three whistles sound and West Ham United net three crucial points in a 3-1 victory at Southampton. A dominant effort due to a well executed game plan can hardly be attributed to one man, but let me plead my case.
It's about quality over quantity this summer, for me.
