Now i understand its the lot of a football supporter to never be happy but when have we as west ham supporters been so spoilt that we can moan about a scrappy 1-0 away win at Brighton which is what we achieved last night! From some of the comments on twitter youd thought we had lost! It was a great defensive display from west ham! how many times over the years could we have said that?
Under zola or grant we would of capitulated without a doubt, dont let in a goal and your not going to lose! We need to win ugly sometimes, and this was an ugly win, have i missed something and over the past few years weve been playing champions league type football or have we just been pretty shit and just generally losing? So now i will take the ugly wins and the jibes at sam allardyce saying hes anti football, because you know what they dont call him anti football when hes losing! Same as stoke they are only anti football when theyve beaten a top team same as wimbledon used to be!
Football is a game where in my book winning is good and losing is not so good! I remember those long away journeys where we may of played well and lost ,id rather play badly and win any day!
We had a few injurys too last night so it was always going to be difficult at Brighton ,but we won,some supporters need to get real and look where we are in the table when i just looked we are 2nd!
Another good game from Kevin Nolan, another who ive seen slated on twitter!
so far Sam Allardyce is doing a great job, he is the manager and in him we must trust.
