    WHUC vs Burnley 10/14/17

    Post  westhamonkey on Sat 14 Oct 2017, 3:08 pm


    here we go, 7 o'clock on a saturday morning... missed the first 1 minute and 50 seconds of the game... wondering who Lowdon is and then realizing we're not the teaming claret and blue...

    I do like the black away strip.

    First thing of note... why the effort would Hart punch? as usual... it wold have been easier and a whole lot safer to catch the ball but instead he punches it...

    Burnley are on the front foot...

    as always... we need three points.

    Noble starts on the bench

    nothing much to report after quarter of an hour... both sides managed one weak set on target.

    we just had a corner that ended up being bounced around and then played all the way back to Hart.

    Burnley are gonna be no pushovers so this will not be the easy three points as some people might have thought.

    and can you all say WOOOOO HOOOOOOOO

    Joe Hart kick... yup... all the way from the box... bounces just in front of the Burnley ara... Antonio is far nimbler and the defender mistimes the ball, so Antonio tricks past him, fools the keeper and basically slots into an empty net.

    Yes, I know, there's a reason I don't get ask to do commentary on footie games... but who cares... we're 1-0.

    totally out of nothing.

    now that is some total bullshit....

    Carroll gets a yellow card for a totally innocuous challenge... couple other players have escaped for way way worse... but the ref obviously felt he had to book someone eventually...

    So almost immediately afterwards.... Carroll goes flying in on a player with his elbow out - and guess what....

    2nd yellow card which means a red.

    Complete shit from the Ref for the first yellow card.

    Complete shit from Carroll for being such a twat that soon after having been booked.

    28 minutes gone and we're down to play over an hour with 10 men

    Thank fupp we are a goal in front.

    Jesus... Hart pretty much takes a player down in the box... he tried to pull out (a little) but we were dead lucky that wasn't penalty.

    I think if the Ref hadn't already fucked up and sent Carroll off, there'd have been a spot kick against us.

    fortunately he just awards a corner that goes nowhere

    great ball in behind the defense to set the whole thing up.

    this is going to be a nervous 58 minutes at this rate.

    Predictably it's all Burnley these days.

    David Moyes is in attendance... please god do not let that man anywhere near my club.

    we try to be clever, nice little interlinking passes out of the back... and predictably give the ball away but fortunately the ensuing shot form Burnley ends up way over row z.

    2 minutes of injury time to see out the first half...

    Hang in there.

    Here's how the BBC saw the first 45...

    HALF-TIME
    Burnley 0-1 West Ham
    After a dull start the match came to life midway through the half. How much will Andy Carroll's sending off affect the game? You get the feeling it might end up like something akin to Rorke's Drift for the visitors in the second half.

    33 min
    PENALTY APPEAL
    Burnley 0-1 West Ham
    West Ham very lucky here. Chris Wood scampers into the box and Joe Hart narrows the angle. Wood draws the ball away from the England goalkeeper who makes contact with the New Zealand striker without appearing to get anything on the ball.

    Burnley's protests are waved away by Stuart Attwell, who is coming under increased scrutiny. Both sets of supporters unhappy with decisions.

    27 min
    RED CARD - Andy Carroll
    Burnley 0-1 West Ham
    Two bookings in the space of a couple of minutes sees Andy Carroll receive his marching orders for leading twice with his elbow.

    The West Ham striker gets an initial yellow card for putting his elbow into Burnley centre-back James Tarkowski as the pair challenged for a high ball. Then moments later Carroll does virtually the same thing to Ben Mee.

    Stuart Attwell shows no hesitation in showing a second yellow and Carroll is sent off. The striker points to his head as if to indicate he was only thinking of the ball, but it was dangerous play.

    the tunnel is coming out so the 2nd half must be coming up.

    no, seriously... the tunnel is one of those concertina affairs... so they pull it out and roll it back... it's on the opposite side to the benches, so all the players, trainers and managers have to trudge across the pitch to get to where they're going...

    teams coming out... Burnley first.

    Burnley look like they've made a couple of changes... us... not sure yet

    Obiang comes on - 'll find out who for... but at least it's like the old days when Noble would have been the obvious choice...

    Obiang's on for Antonovic...

    Burnley's changes unsurprisingly are more attacking minded.

    some interesting scores from around the country...

    Palarse are leading Chealski... not that it'l change anything at the bottom of the table.

    of more concern to us is that Swansea are two goals to the good... which will put them above us unless we can keep hold of this game.

    Of course, as I write that, we give away a free kick a few yards outside the penalty area... exactly what we want to avoid...

    the ball cannons off the wall, loops the airing looked like they were gonna get a corner but we get a goal kick... phew!!

    great attack... beautiful build up

    but Antonio's shot is palmed away for a corner which the keeper catches easily.

    We're not sitting back too much so far - which is always good to see.

    now that was a lucky escape... fortunately the chance goes to a player who hasn't scored in 4 1/2 years... but a warning that we can't afford to stop concentrating for a moment...

    judas priest...

    Hart can't quite reach a long range shot from Burnley - the ball sips past his outstretched fingers... hits the bottom of the post... bounces back and hits Hart in the back but somehow loses all of its momentum and he's able to get to his knees and grab it.

    He gets down much better to the next shot...

    but Burnley are in the ascendance....

    another Burnley free kick from dangerously outside the area...

    71 minutes on the clock...

    and it's out for a corner...

    oooh....fupp... the ball fizzes across the six yard box... no one gets it...

    Burnley on the attack and Hart gathers.

    Chicharito is pissed at being subbed... he's played well... boos from the crowd...

    Sakho comes on to replace him... so it's fresh legs and not looking just to drop deep and defend

    as things stand - and if they stay the same... we'll be 10th in the table with three teams playing tomorrow that could overtake us...

    ManCity have hit 6

    Palarse are still in the lead...

    Spuds are being held by Bournemouth

    and there you have it... Chris Woods... wasn't he a goalkeeper?

    84 minutes gone...

    towering header unmarked in the 6 yard box...

    1-1

    that's fucked it all up.

    and that's it...

    very deflating

    totally feels like three points pissed away.

    1 is better than none but not really when you see where we still are in the table.

    A lot of fans would have preferred Sakho instead of Carroll.
    If Bilic had chosen him would we have won?

    Thanks Monkey ..... you do a great job on here, I wish there was more response for you. 

    Including myself, we're letting this place go to the knackers yard.

    Must rally the troops ............

    So, Sakho and Hernandez starting upfront on Friday ...... no excuses for Bilic ..... is there?
