First Team Squad

Player profile and performance records.

Matthew Etherington (Midfielder)

Squad Number: 11
Position: Midfielder
Born: 14th Aug 1981 (Truro)
Signed: 4th Aug 2003 (£500,000)
Contract: Details unknown
Previous Club: Tottenham

Matthew Etherington was one of Glenn Roeder's first signings following relegation from the Premiership, moving from Tottenham as part of the deal which took Freddie Kanoute the other way for an estimated £1m.

The Truro-born winger had spent four frustrating years at White Hart Lane - for whom he made just 24 competitive starts - before becoming a vital part of firstly Roeder's, then Trevor Brooking's, then Alan Pardew's team - all in the space of three months!

A good old-fashioned winger who can also be a real crowd pleaser, Etherington is determined to make his grade in the Premiership after suffering a miserable time at Tottenham.

Newcastle United

2-2: Saturday, 10th January

(replaced) Brought some width to the match and played a part in the best of the three goals.

Barnsley

Portsmouth

0-0: Saturday, 15th November

(replaced Sears, 46) Failed to take on the full back when he should have. Did so when he shouldn’t have. Ignored when he should have been fed. Played in when he shouldn’t have been. Gave the ball away too much.

(replaced Boa Morte, 58) Looked lively when he came on and played a significant part in the goal. His booking was ridiculous.

Middlesbrough

1-1: Saturday, 1st November

I know he likes the new free role but sometimes he does still need to be out wide and he needs to remember that.

Bolton Wanderers

1-3: Sunday, 5th October

I know he likes the new free role but sometimes he does still need to be out wide and he needs to remember that.

Fulham

2-1: Sunday, 28th September

A couple of loose touches early on apart he had a fine game. In the past when he’s been kicked by the opposition he has disappeared – something of which Konchesky seemed well aware judging by his assault. However, Etherington seemed spurred on by the treatment he received in this match and the freedom to roam the new system clearly suits him.

Newcastle United

3-1: Saturday, 20th September

Marked a very good performance greatly improved on last season with a goal.

Newcastle United

3-1: Saturday, 20th September

Another who enjoyed a new role. It suited him and the goal was deserved.

West Bromwich Albion

2-3: Saturday, 13th September

(replaced Boa Morte, 79) Lucky to have a job at all following last weekend's revelations. Contributed virtually nothing.

Blackburn Rovers

4-1: Saturday, 30th August

Stuck to his task and got involved - as he needed to do following last week's hugely disappointing display at Eastlands.

Blackburn Rovers

4-1: Saturday, 30th August

Usually disappears when taking a kick. This time Ooijer’s foul seemed to galvanize him into action.

Manchester City

0-3: Sunday, 24th August

The players stayed in he same hotel as us. We were trying to work out who had had our rooms before us. My room showed no signs of anyone ever having stayed there before. There was no tell-tale sign of presence whatsoever. You’d never have known anyone had been there at all. I presume I had Etheringon’s room.

Manchester City

0-3: Sunday, 24th August

Has belatedly mastered the lost art among left wingers of actually closing a player down. Long may it continue. Made some good runs and used the ball well.

Wigan Athletic

2-1: Saturday, 16th August

Lively first half but disappeared from view in the second.

MLS AllStars

2-3: Friday, 25th July

Pretty disappointing first run-out for Etherington, who has only just recovered from an injury that kept him out of Sunday's win in Columbus.

Birmingham City

1-1: Saturday, 9th February

Like Bowyer had a decent first half but seemed to be bypassed in the second as we went route one.

Wigan Athletic

1-0: Saturday, 2nd February

Looked lively to start with but didn’t recover from the knock that ultimately curtailed his participation in the game.

Liverpool

1-0: Wednesday, 30th January

He's definitely had better games this season- there were glimpses here and there, but too many errors stunted his game.

Fulham

2-1: Saturday, 12th January

Some excellent runs only let down by the final ball into the box which was all-too-often either wayward or blocked.

Manchester City

0-0: Saturday, 5th January

It was good to see him back in the team offering width. Should have scored and eventually tired.

Manchester City

0-0: Saturday, 5th January

Provided an outlet on the left for Linda and gave some much-needed width to the midfield.

Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 1st December

Saw a fair bit of the ball but failed to capitalise on his possession.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-1: Saturday, 24th November

Another in and out performance. A few good runs and a few blind alleys.

Derby County

5-0: Saturday, 10th November

Got kicked early on with a rotten challenge from I think Oakley and he did go a bit quiet for a few minutes. However he stepped things up in the second half and thoroughly deserved his goal. Nice to see him enjoying the game a bit more this season.

Bolton Wanderers

1-1: Sunday, 4th November

A solid performance, once again all the creativity came through him on the left flank.

Coventry City

2-1: Tuesday, 30th October

The source of all our best moves (but neither goal, strangely). Getting back to his best.

Aston Villa

0-1: Saturday, 6th October

Not bad. Nothing like his rampaging best that we saw at Reading a few weeks ago but got stuck in.

Aston Villa

0-1: Saturday, 6th October

Whipped in some good balls but too often on the periphery.

Middlesbrough

3-0: Saturday, 15th September

Starved of service in the first half he came into the match a lot more in the second period culminating in his role in the third goal.

Reading

3-0: Saturday, 1st September

Well. Fantastic. Two great goals, took the full-back on, full of running. Even got a knock and got up straight away.

Reading

3-0: Saturday, 1st September

Two fine goals after a goal-free spell that lasted over a season. Bonehead is convinced he won’t get another this season. A pint says he will!

Bristol Rovers

2-1: Tuesday, 28th August

Did not play.

Wigan Athletic

1-1: Saturday, 25th August

A bit in and out. Looked capable of causing problems one minute then invisible the next. Still an improvement on last season.

Wigan Athletic

Providing more of an outlet than last year and there were glimpses of his old self- but he didn't take on Melchiot enough.

Birmingham City

1-0: Saturday, 18th August

Continued on from the promising spell last week which was strangely curtailed by his shift to left-back.

Manchester City

0-2: Saturday, 11th August

(Replaced Boa Morte, 45) I’m not his greatest fan but it looked like, if we were to get anything out of the game, it was going to come through him. So we moved him to left back and handed back the initiative to City.

Manchester City

0-2: Saturday, 11th August

(Replaced Boa Morte, 45) At least tries to take his man on and put a cross in, even if he lacks quality. But Alan, please, he is not a left-back, you buffoon.

Everton

1-0: Saturday, 21st April

A better performance from the point of view of the impressive amount of hard work put in. Even tried to take on his full back from time to time.

Middlesbrough

2-0: Saturday, 31st March

A little more lively than in recent performances but not that much end-product to boast about. His work-rate is much improved however.

Blackburn Rovers

2-1: Saturday, 17th March

Although there was more effort than perhaps in recent weeks the end product is still missing. You would like to see him gamble a little more when attacking his full-back; however on second thoughts ...

No threat at all. The quicker Boa Morte returns the better.

Charlton Athletic

Anonymous.

Watford

0-1: Saturday, 10th February

Definitely better than Boa’s recent displays. Final ball was often poor. Still baffled by Curb’s decision to move him into the middle for the final minutes.

Watford

0-1: Saturday, 10th February

Came into the game a bit more in the second half having spent the first half stuck on the touchline screaming for the pass that never came.

(Replaced Cole, 73) How did he miss? Got into some great positions, yet never capitalised on them.

Newcastle United

2-2: Saturday, 20th January

(Replaced Cole, 73) His only real involvement was missing a second-half sitter. His last game for West Ham?

Portsmouth

1-2: Tuesday, 26th December

He needs to go. Watch me fly, he said. Hide would be more appropriate.

Fulham

0-0: Saturday, 23rd December

Got up and down the left a lot but never seemed to quite have the measure of his full-back.

Manchester United

1-0: Sunday, 17th December

The amount of hard work he got through on the left was amazing. Not surprisingly he looked knackered when subbed. Would have opened the scoring had he been able to head a ball!

Everton

0-2: Sunday, 3rd December

When he gets his crossing right he will be a threat.

Everton

0-2: Sunday, 3rd December

Got into good positions but wasted too many crosses.

Sheffield United

1-0: Saturday, 25th November

A lot of hard work on both wings. Nice corner for the goal.

Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 18th November

Poor with his final ball; despite this Etherington had one of his best games this season. Not afraid to go forward and take on his man.

Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 18th November

In the game a lot more though didn’t quite have the beating of his man. He’ll get more out of lesser opposition.

Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 18th November

Ethers worked hard on the flank although all too often the final delivery was sub-standard.

Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 18th November

An excellent game. Full of running and constantly caused Chelsea trouble. If anyone was going to create a goal for us today, it was Etherington. His best performance of the season.

Arsenal

1-0: Monday, 6th November

We've been waiting for a performance from Etherington since the Cup Final back in May - and he certainly didn't disappoint today. His work rate was much improved - as his general fitness levels appeared to be. Unlike last week his crosses were precise and dangerous; it was no surprise that the goal arrived via his left peg.

Arsenal

1-0: Monday, 6th November

Drifted in and out a bit but did a lot of battling on and off the ball as exemplified by his part in the goal.

Blackburn Rovers

2-1: Sunday, 29th October

Failed to deliver one decent cross all afternoon whilst a lack of concentration almost allowed Khizanishvili in for an equaliser. Lucas Neill won't have many easier afternoons this season.

Chesterfield

1-2: Tuesday, 24th October

(Replaced Reid, 57) Struggled on the left flank following his introduction.

Chesterfield

1-2: Tuesday, 24th October

(Replaced Reid, 57) Matty has been missing since last May. Something is seriously amiss.

Portsmouth

0-2: Sunday, 15th October

Got over one half-decent cross in the second half but failed to try to repeat the exercise. Harshly conned into the book by O’Neill’s dive.

Portsmouth

0-2: Sunday, 15th October

Very average on the left. Final delivery was notably woeful.

Reading

0-1: Sunday, 1st October

Energetic performance, rarely a goal threat.

Reading

0-1: Sunday, 1st October

Although he found himself in several good positions throughout the game too often his delivery was poor. Twice in the first half he spooned crosses beyond the back post when a low drive across the rain-drenched pitch may have been a better option.

Manchester City

0-2: Saturday, 23rd September

Very average.

Manchester City

0-2: Saturday, 23rd September

His crossing was wide of the mark and Richards handled him easily. One of those games spent in hiding.

Newcastle United

0-2: Sunday, 17th September

In the bad old days it seemed that one kick at Matty would be enough to keep him out of the game. Parker made sure that this was one of the bad old days.

Newcastle United

0-2: Sunday, 17th September

Fitness was not there before the game, and his knock early on dented that and seemingly his confidence too. Very quiet.

Newcastle United

0-2: Sunday, 17th September

Something has not been quite right with Matty since he returned to first team action. And why was he mainly playing in the centre of midfield in the final 20 minutes? Strange ...

Newcastle United

0-2: Sunday, 17th September

One great run which ended in a bad tackle, and from there he was non-existent and weak.

Palermo

0-1: Thursday, 14th September

(Replaced Bowyer, 59) Better than Sunday; still not 100%. His dive was pretty embarrassing.

Palermo

0-1: Thursday, 14th September

(Replaced Bowyer, 59) Ran into too many blind alleys and the dive was not something I want to see from him.

(Replaced Bowyer, 72) Clearly lacking match fitness, sloppy on the ball.

Aston Villa

1-1: Sunday, 10th September

(Replaced Bowyer, 72) His return was somewhat lost amongst all the shenanigans of the last few days. Added some much-needed width and we’re going to need that in the coming weeks.

Liverpool

3-3: Saturday, 13th May

No further comments.

Liverpool

3-3: Saturday, 13th May

Considering he had barely kicked a ball in the last three weeks Etherington was full of running. It was his shot that led to West Ham's second goal.

Liverpool

1-2: Wednesday, 26th April

Top-notch in the second-half of this season, and superb again tonight.

Middlesbrough

1-0: Sunday, 23rd April

A few good runs formed part of an “in and out” game for Matty.

Was at the heart of some of our better moments and kept trying, though the final delivery into the box was often lacking.

Chelsea

1-4: Sunday, 9th April

Desperately disappointing in a game in which you would have thought he would be keen to make an impression.

More kidology from Pardew with the announcement at the weekend that Etherington was unfit? Who knows, but a performance full of determination and effort (at both ends of the pitch) suggested that that idea may have legs.

Bolton Wanderers

2-1: Wednesday, 15th March

Sven? Sven?

Bolton Wanderers

2-1: Wednesday, 15th March

Superb performace full of drive and passion from Ethers - although you wouldn't have backed him when he squared up against Nolan.

Bolton Wanderers

1-4: Saturday, 11th March

Set up our only goal. For much of the game Bolton were very effective in denying him space or run or really do anything. I think Etherington was in bad form, this was the type of game where he might not have done anything. But was involved throughout the game and did provide an outlet when we weren’t booting the ball long. Not his best.

Everton

2-2: Saturday, 4th March

Goodish first half. Just about non-existent second half.

A quiet first half, inspired after the break. Everything West Ham created came through or involved Etherington. Excellent performance.

Birmingham City

3-0: Monday, 13th February

Another who continues to improve – in Matty’s case he had an indifferent start to the season but little by little he’s pulled it back.

Birmingham City

3-0: Monday, 13th February

Used as the main outlet for West Ham's forays into opposition territory, it was another bustling energetic performance from the tricky winger.

Sunderland

2-0: Saturday, 4th February

Having a much better second half of the season than he did the first. Confidence is up at the moment.

Arsenal

3-2: Wednesday, 1st February

Another whose attacking instincts were sacrificed by the need for defensive solidity. That he was able to pop up at the end for the vital goal was an added bonus.

Blackburn Rovers

4-2: Saturday, 28th January

Probably his best run out of the season. As his confidence grew during the match he became more and more adventurous – the goal gave him a big boost as well.

Patchy – but not given much service in the second half when we were under the cosh a bit.

Looked quite dangerous when going forward but really ought to have put us one up early on.

Brilliant in patches - such as when he provided the sublime pass for our goal - yet anonymous at times. The good news is that he lasted the full 90 and was still pushing on towards the end.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-1: Sunday, 20th November

This match summed up Etherington’s season in a nutshell. There were times he harried and hassled and looked good going forward. Then there were other spells when he looked almost disinterested. Thankfully on this occasion the good spells narrowly outnumbered the poor.

Middlesbrough

2-1: Sunday, 23rd October

When he was good he was excellent but he did seem to disappear for long stretches at a time and he displayed an occasional tendency to let things happen around him rather than getting involved.

Middlesbrough

2-1: Sunday, 23rd October

His link-up play with Konchesky on the left was good but it still wasn't the same Matty that we saw last season.

Manchester City

1-2: Sunday, 16th October

A couple of teasing crosses in the first half and the run early in the second that forced a save out of James and that basically was it. May be looking at a rest on current form.

Manchester City

1-2: Sunday, 16th October

Off par all season and despite one or two glimpses of his pace and crossing prowess, today was little different. A spell on the bench may beckon should he not buck up his ideas.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 1st October

Of late when he hasn’t been giving the opposition a hard time he has at least been putting in the effort defensively, However he was largely anonymous both in defence and attack. Worrying.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 1st October

When will last year’s Matthew Etherington show up? It’s been widely acknowledged that Etherington has not started this season particularly well but this was the worst yet and was completely bereft of attacking influence. Must be tempting Pardew to drop him for Newton and stick Benayoun on the left.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 1st October

Failed to beat his marker on a single occasion and rarely threatened the Sunderland back line. Looking back on my match notes his first mention is when being replaced by Shaun Newton on the hour. Which says it all.

Arsenal

0-0: Saturday, 24th September

Rarely got at his full back in the manner to which we have become accustomed and again faded towards the end.

Arsenal

0-0: Saturday, 24th September

Slightly disappointing, much like his start to this season. So often in the Championship, we would turn to Matty to instigate our attacks – but those barn-storming raids down the left have yet to truly grace the Premiership.

Arsenal

0-0: Saturday, 24th September

Matty got through a major amount of work. Not as eye-catching as he can be going forward but nevertheless caused the odd problem going forward on occasion.

Arsenal

0-0: Saturday, 24th September

Rarely got at his full back in the manner to which we have become accustomed and again faded towards the end.

Fulham

2-1: Saturday, 17th September

Occasionally good going forward he seemed reluctant to take players on and he left Konchesky exposed on a number of occasions.

Fulham

2-1: Saturday, 17th September

A fantastic first 45, Etherington gave Volz a torrid time on the left-hand side. But he faded after the break and picked his forays forward somewhat more carefully. Getting up to full fitness but not quite there yet.

Aston Villa

4-0: Monday, 12th September

Drifted in and out a bit but looked dangerous every time he was in the game. Was apparently disappointed to have been replaced following a minor knock.

Bolton Wanderers

1-2: Saturday, 27th August

I described him as being “out of sorts” to my neighbour at half time. This was a more accurate description than I realised at the time as he was, apparently, ill. It showed.

Newcastle United

0-0: Saturday, 20th August

Quiter than last week but always a useful outlet for the likes of Konchesky to use. Still looking tricky despite having made the step up to the big league.

Blackburn Rovers

3-1: Saturday, 13th August

Another who played in spells. Seemed a little overawed in the first half. Less so in the second when he set up a number of decent chances. Enjoyed the goal didn’t he!
