West Ham (H) Lørdag 13/9-08

Image1-0 Morrison (3) heading etter innlegg fra Valero
1-1 Noble (28) Fra kloss hold etter at Carson reddet heading fra Di Michele.
1-2 Neill (35) Fra corner, alle forsvarerne går mot ballen. Neill kommer inn bak og smeller ballen i nota.
2-2 Bednar (37) straffe. Bildet borte nå.... Barnett ble tydeligvis tatt av keeper Green. vet ikke hva Barnett gjorde der oppe...Det var dødball, ballen falt ti lBarnett som prøvde å lage seg litt rom da green kastet seg i bena hans. Sikker straffe fra Bednar.

Fikk endelig bildet tilbake like før pause. Har vært en utrolig innholdsrik omgang. Kunne vært 5-5. Koren misset alene med keeper, Bednar headet like utenfor etter en corner. Barnett skjøt like utenfor etter noken corner, mens West Ham er farlige hver gang de kommer i nærheten av 16-meteren. Hoefkens henger ikke med i svingene, midtforsvaret klarerer/passer uten adresse, uvanlig mye feilpasninger på midtbanen, Har ikke sett Valero etter det tredje minuttet. Mulig han spiller høyre kant og dermed lite involvert. Brunt mer med på venstre, men for treg til å utnytte gode posisjoner, blir løpt opp hver gang han får ballen. Blir litt for spennende i andre omgang føler jeg!

3-2 Brunt !!!! kontring, så ut som Brunt var klart i offside!! (Men ingen bilder som sikekrt kan konkludere med noe enda, får se hva de finner ut på Match Of The Day i kveld)

----

Så er vi igang igjen etter en lang landskamp pause. Mister jo helt rytmen av disse landskampene.
Får vi endelig den første 3 poengeren? Får endelig en svenske trekke på seg den vakre drakten?

West Brom boss Tony Mowbray:
"I think we have been decent in the three games we've already played.

"The players believe that they can play in this league and we have shown that we are more than capable of competing. We should have no fears for the rest of the season.

"But we badly need a win to get us off the bottom of the table.

"If the performance level remains as high as it has been we will soon be winning games."

 

BIG-MATCH FACTS

A win for West Ham in their first game since the appointment of Gianfranco Zola as Alan Curbishley's successor in the managerial role, would give the Hammers nine points, and make it their best start to a Premier League season since 1999.

Failure to win would ensure bottom-placed West Brom's worst ever start to a Premier League campaign.

The Baggies are making their fifth attempt this season to gain a 50th league and cup win under Tony Mowbray.

West Ham have a 100% Premier League record at the Hawthorns (won two of two).

Distance between the clubs: 140 miles (226 kilometres)
