West Ham and Hull serve up a proper thriller!

Wow, that was some game.

We can talk about defensive frailties all day long but I prefer to dwell on the most progressive looking away performance I can remember for some considerable while from West Ham United.

The new signings are really starting to show what they promise now. They are adding to the talent pool and tonight, I thought Allardyce shuffled his pack intelligently and made substitutions at the right time too. The midfield diamond of Noble, Zarate and Downing were highly influential in the first period, using the intelligent runs of Demel and Cresswell to good effect and if only we had gambled a little more in terms of Sakho and Valencia hitting the 6 yard box we might well have gone in at half time with a lead, let alone the one goal deficit.

When Zarate faded, Song came on. He looked assured and impressive and, on balance, we continued to edge the game in terms of quality possession and chances created. That said, we did always look susceptible at the back and at no time this evening could anyone have sensibly predicted the outcome, even as late as the 94th minute Valencia might have won it!

Anyway, early start for me so I’ll leave you to debate it. For me though, credit where credit is due. This was the sort of football that I want to see.
