    jesus... Snoddy should have put that one away...

    these high defensive lines are killing both teams...

    almost a ball threaded into open space behind our defense... but the whistle goes... first half over.

    I guess this is what they call "a great game for the neutral"

    our goal started from wining possession on the edge of our box from an Arsenal attack... played all the way through the Arsenal team to Arnie slotting into the net...

    and the goal we conceded was kinda similar in reverse...

    Arsenal make one chance...

    we should have had someone in the 6 yard box to nod that nice little cross home...

    but we didn't...

    to be honest it could as easily and justifiably be...

    0-0
    1-0
    0-2
    2-2

    Arsenal just almost scored...

    it's pretty end to end but neither team is that incisive once n the box... and both look a bit dodgy at the back...

    long free kick goes all the way over to Arnie at the far post but he kinda snatches his shot and balloons it wide...

    that was another chance...

    how long before we rue the misses...

    we;'re getting more free kicks... another one now as Anderson is clipped...

    but the record breaking signing just loops the free kick high wide and out of play...

    couple of speculative shots from Arsenal are easily dealt with by Fabianski but not so easily dealt with by the defense which is why Fabianski has to deal with them...

    but Anderson knicks the ball... goes all the way up the pitch, into the box and slots it to Arnie who can only manage a weak dink into the keeper's hands...

    and Arnie is down holding his knee

    as we break again...

    but the ball goes out so Arnie can get treatment...

    not sure anything happened to Arnie... which makes it worrying that he's on the ground getting treatment to his knee..

    Arsenal make a second substitution

    Arnie is up but grimacing as he runs across to get a drink

    he might need to come off - but h continues for now

    nope... Arnie has sat down in the center circle... this is not good...

    he's got to come off...

    who'll replace him?

    Chicharito? Yarmolenko?please don't be too badly hurt Capt'n...

    yeah... its a straight striker for striker...

    Chicharito comes on...

    now we got to get those balls in the box (ooh... err... missus!!!)

    halfway thru the half... our first corner...
    this is where Chicharito should score...

    Anderson's corner is too low...

    but he sneaks in past the defense to follow up...

    but no one in West Ham Colors (kinda blue with yellow socks( is awake and the spilled ball form Pedr Czech is wasted...

    and that is shit as Arsenal score...

    the ball was knocked out for what looked like a corner... but Diop decided to try to save the corner... hoofed the ball back into the box (with a ridiculous up and under) then a bounce, a struggle and a deflection off an Arsenal player and Fabianski is completely wrong footed...

    9 minutes to go and we do not look like doing anything except gifting the points to Arsenal...

    Brilliant run by Anderson... one end to the other... stretched the Arse...

    ridiculous wide shot to cap it off from Perez... because..?

    well... because we have no chance of winning...

    holy shit... we just needed any kind of touch from three yards out to put that in the back of the net...

    four minutes of injury time...

    and there you go... Welbeck slams it home unmarked in the middle of the 6 yard box...

    because there's nowhere to go from the bottom....
