    West Ham V Bournemouth

    Post  Charlie Ham on Sat 18 Aug 2018, 11:24 am

    Well here we go again and I'I be leaving to the bowl at 12:30

    I would make four changes for today's game bringing in Zabaleta at right back. Not because I think Fredericks has done anything wrong,it's just that Zabaleta might be able to control the defence better. Cresswell in for Masuaku because he is a better defender. Yarmolenko in for Antonio because he will try. Obiang in for Noble because he can move better.

    Still think it will be close.

    Upton Park 2 is looking mighty fine... would be so much nicer if we actually owned it and didn't just rent... but then it;'s also nice to ave a lariat the Spuds of all the crap they're going through when you do actually own a huge building project... ha ha!!!

    team news????

    boy, it must suck being Adrian... Fabianski is in goal...

    players in the tunnel about to wander out...

    Snoddy starts...

    Arnie and Chicahrito head up top...

    we wre Bournemouth's first win in the Premier League...

    it's about time we put them in their place...

    I think it's even steven for last season... draws each time...

    we could go above Cardiff if we win...

    2 mins... 40 secs and the ball is finally in the Bournemouth half because of us... but the end result is a corner to the Southcoasters... yeah, that kind of game so far...

    goal kick goes straight out of play by where Pellegrini is standing...

    again, what must it be like to be Adrian... I mean toucan't drop a keeper for one dodgy performance, so demoting Fab after the Liverpool game would be a bad move moral-wise... but still...

    Hope Adrian plays a blinder in the cup... not that he should have anything at all to do against wimbledon... but then as we all know... this is West Ham.

    sorry for waffling... 5 1/2 minutes gone... we've still not started yet.

    Bournemouth as the comms says... know exactly what they're doing.

    maybe we're doing okay... I mean... technically, Bournemouth are currently top of the Premier League...

    Antonio's not even on the subs bench, anyone know what's up with him?

    Sanchez, Dio, Yarmolenko and Perez all on the bench to add some magic in the dying stages...

    oooh... Bournemouth goal kick... that's about as exciting as it's gotten so far.

    Noble get hacked down by Gosling... his third dodgy tackle... just another warning... no card.

    a bit more purpose and direction from us...

    Gosling's fourth foul gets him a card... funny to watch him pretending to be hurt himself, knowing the card was coming...

    if things stay as they are.... we'll be out of the relegation zone.... until or unless Arsenal get a result in the late game.

    bit more sustained pressure from us

    Chicharito's shot gets deflected for our first corner...


    nothing comes from it... but Masuaku manages a great run down the wing...

    another Hammers corner

    the crowd comes alive...

    Holy Shit...

    Fabianski gets down quickly and save from a one on one as Bournemouth sneak in behind the defense and almost undo all of our good work...


    we escaped by the skin of our teeth there...

    15 minutes and I'm out... I was hoping this would be game over by the time I had to bounce...

    every ball into the Bournemouth box is cleared by a strong defensive header... still not sure what our over all game plan is.

    bit of controversy... shouts, screams... pleads for the pen...

    Chicharito gets brought down as he tries to squirm away from the keeper and defender...

    but finally the Ref decides to give the spot kick...

    not a big fan of Chicharito feigning injury until such time as the Ref points to the spot, when he leaps up fit as a butcher's dog...

    Arnie grabs the ball to take the kick...

    Keeper dives the right way but Arnie's shot is so hard and fast... there's no stopping it...

    first home goal of the season...

    first goal of the season for us...

    1-0

    32 minutes gone

    starting to get a little ahead of ourselves... trying to be too cool for school with the quick fire passing and making mistakes... giving the ball away... twice now we've given it to the Cherries to have a go at us...

    we're not good enough for that yet... we have to learn how to hold onto and how to grind out a win before we can try to showboat...

    well, not even showboat really... but the nice short intricate tasing is cool... but not when the players aren't on the same wavelength...

    great tackle by Zab to save another attack...

    Bournemouth stepping up the pressure... the ball skitters inches wide of the post from a free header...

    maybe about 20 or 30 inches... but it's the free header from three yards out that is the bigger worry...

    2 mins of added time...
    Arnie almost gets in to send us to the tea break on more comfortable terms...

    but instead it's the Cheries on the attack...

    given results elsewhere... Bournemouth have currently dropped to 9th and we're up to 11th...

    we'll see how that shapes up by the end of the 2nd half...

    Ogbonna is down in the box receiving treatment...

    google maps tells me it's a 13 minute drive... registration starts at 9 so I'm gonna hang on a little longer...


    it was all the result of a Bournemouth attack as they started the 2nd half by trying to score - cheeky blighters

    CLOSE!
    West Ham 1-0 Bournemouth
    Bournemouth quick out of the traps in the second half.

    Within seconds, West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is called into action, diving full length low to his right to keep out David Brooks' spin and shot.

    That is a superb save.



    That's how the Beeb summed it up...

    free kick to the Cherries out on the wing ... Fabianski punches away....

    this 2nd half is way too close for comfort... we're lucky to have that penalty to hold onto...
