Chelsea 1 West Ham 1

Hammers put in a creditable performance drawing with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge today.  Though they lost last week against Tottenham, they have tied both Chelsea and Liverpool recently.  If only Carlton Cole could finish, it would have been an injury time win for the Hammers.  Cole was through alone and scuffed his shot trying to place it when he should have just blasted it.

Craig Bellamy scored a superb goal which he volleyed in after chesting down a pass from Mark Noble.  

I am not sure what is going on with the schedule, but every week the Hammers seem to be playing a big club.  They will need to start getting some points against the mid table and lower table teams if they hope to get any kind of comfort.  

At this point it is hard to convince me that the club would not have been higher in the standings had Curbishly been in charge.   We will have to give Alan credit.  He helped the team avoid the drop, then took the Hammers to 10th, and for some reason he was then odds on favorite to be the first manager fired.  I don’t blame him for quitting with the thanks he got for doing great things for the team.   

It strikes me that the Hammers fan base is delushional hoping for flashy classy football when teams which much more player resources struggle to ahieve that level.  Curbishly played “reality football” not “fantasy football”,we should have been happy with that… 

In any event, I am willing to Give Zola a chance but he had better start winning…
