    They looked like a team that had played the last three games with 10 men. Knackered. Second half we were more dangerous. Don't lets slate them too much.

    Our lot looked like they had just woken up.
    Second half was better but you can always rely on this lot letting you down just when we were expecting a good game from them.
    Bloody Southampton win and the bloody Welsh beat England at rugby.
    Bad day for sport.

    Drove out to a Hammers fan's house who gets the Swedish channel that was showing it. He lives outside Mariehamn which is the countryside to me. It started snowing heavily, I got lost, I realised I'd forgotten my mobile, I tried to reverse on an icy road & backed into a ditch so have probably fucked up my back axle, then the window wiper on the drivers side stopped working. So basically I tried to kill myself to see West Ham. The game was clearly never going to get any better - I'm just surprised we didn't lose after all that.

    Big Sam after the game.

    Sam Allardyce admitted his West Ham players were unhappy at being booed off following their goalless draw with Crystal Palace.

    Sections of the Upton Park crowd voiced their frustration at the end of each half after a lacklustre display from the promotion favourites.

    "As a manager you have to take it but one or two of the players in the dressing room were a little disappointed to get booed because we are at the top of the league," revealed Hammers boss Allardyce.

    "You build up the expectation as we have done recently having done so well, and we didn't deliver today. But the fans have to stay with us and have to be patient, and then we'll all benefit in the end.

    "I told the lads we are all disappointed and the fans are showing their disappointment.

    "They cheer us when we win and they were not so happy we didn't play well today, but that's the way it goes."

    The Hammers at least managed to keep 11 players on the pitch, having had a man sent off in their previous three matches.

    Goalkeeper Rob Green was able to play after his midweek red card in the 4-1 win at Blackpool was overturned, and he kept his side in the game during the first half.

    Green, whose eventful week also included an England recall, blocked a fierce Chris Martin drive and tipped over the deflected follow-up from Wilfried Zaha.

    Allardyce threw on substitutes Carlton Cole and Sam Baldock after the break and the strikers both had chances to win it. Cole curled an effort narrowly wide and Baldock twice shot too close to Palace keeper Julian Speroni.

    "It was not our best day but the last three games, playing with 10 men, caught up with the lads," added Allardyce

    "I might have made a mistake picking the same team, but they had done so well. We livened it up in the second half but didn't hit the heights we know we can.

    "We had probably the two best chances with Sam, but we couldn't convert them."

    Palace have proved frustrating opponents for the Hammers, who were held 2-2 at Selhurst Park in October.

    Eagles manager Dougie Freedman said: "I'm pleased we could come to a big club like West Ham and force them to change shape and personnel.

    "We had our chances, so did they. West Ham will always cause you problems but we stuck to our game plan and I felt a draw was pretty much a fair result.

    "In my opinion West Ham will get promoted this season as champions."

    I really get pissed off with these wankers that boo the team , stay the fcuk away if you are gonna boo , everyone has a right to moan if they are not happy with the performance but boo,ing is bang out of order and not wanted at UP . It was not one of the best games yesterday but after playing three games in a short space of time is gonna knacker the players . Sam was wrong in fielding the same team as Blackpool , he should have brought on some fresh legs . We are still up there with only one point behind Southampton and a game in hand so all is not lost .
    Once again " fcuk OFF BOO BOYS "



    Sorry to hear about your misfortunes JK , move to the mainland mate , no snow here Wink

    Really ??? scratch He along side Tomkins in Defence has been one of our best players this season IMO , He has improved alot since last season when he was crap but lets be honest he was`nt played in the right position under Grant but this year he has been a rock alongside Tomkins under BFS . If their two players who should be slated IMO this season they are Faubert and Piquionne not Reid Smile

    Yes I wil admit Faubert has played well sometimes but the Money we payed for him its about time he paid that back - He should be able to put decent Proformances every game not every other game angry2

    Piquionne well Lets not get started on what I think of him the useless

    Put it into perspective. Reid is playing against Championship strikers. He looks like a mistake waiting to happen to me. Bambi on ice springs to mind. He is an athlete and is quick. He needs to be as he is often out of position and is making up lost ground. His first 20 minutes on Saturday was one of the worst I have seen in central defence for a long, long time. For £4m I expect a defender who at least looks good in the Coco-Pops league. He doesn't

    As for Faubert, the only thing that has changed in the 5 years he has been here is his attitude. It was shocking up to this season and now he has seen fit to actually run around at least. Again for £6.5m I expect him to stand out at this level. He does not. He cannot beat a full back, he rarely puts in a cross worthy of the name and has scored TWO goals in 5 years. He is out of contract at the end of the season. I would let him go

    I think Faubert will be with us for some time yet as I think BFS like faubert so do doubt that he will offer him a new contract at the end of the season regardless of what league will be playing in next season
