    we head the wolves corner clear... but only to give them a throw...

    slowly we push them back to their own half but the slowly overwhelm us in midfield nd come back...

    we defend and push them back to their own half

    but they build slowly again...

    no defending from Wolves allows Balbuena a free header but he slams it into the ground and the ball bounces wide...

    ooh... something to wake the supporters up... a bit of a goalmouth scramble of sorts... Wilshere and Arnie battling through... all we get is a corner and a high wide and not vey handsome shot from Arnie to show for it...

    but for a moment... you know...

    ball palmed out of the air to save was looked like a pretty slow weak header...

    fortunately Wilshere is tracking back to save the defense as Wolves then go on the counter...

    so, a few bits of excitement...

    59 minutes... Cresswell is actually very lucky to only get a yellow for jumping into the wolves player with his elbow raised...

    beautiful forearm smash to the neck... but he gets to play on.


    Great downward header that Fabianski smothers on the line... now if only Balbuena had done the same...

    wolves make a substitution... who for who?

    don't pretend you have any more idea who their players are than I do..

    61 minutes gone...

    63 minutes

    Obiang comes on for Wilshere... who must be tired because he's been one of our better players... so taking him off makes little sense except for fresh legs...

    funny, comms is saying wilshere should come off because we've seen better from him and he hasn't really changed the game for west Ham... so the fact he's been one of our better players is kinda sad...

    our movement off the ball is almost non-existent

    we're trying a bit but still look lightweight and kinda bereft of ideas...

    good attack by us gets well defended...

    average attack by wolves gets shitty defending by us and we concede a corner...

    holy shit...

    great save by Fabianski saves us...

    Wolves tore the defense to shreds and had an unchallenged shot from 6 or7 yards out...

    little Chicharito comes on to replace Antonio...

    that's going to help shore up the defense, bolster midfield and ugh....

    yeah...

    75 minutes and we're on a very sedate (should I say 'patient') build up but it doe result in a long range shot that just goes a little wide from Obiang...

    Freericks tries to cut down the right hand side but the well marshaled Wolves defense easily smothers the danger and fortunately...

    their forward trips over the ball as he's in the 6 yard box in front of Fabianski...

    that's how quickly it went form a half assed West Ham attack to us almost losing the game...

    the guardian haven't made one text update about our game in the second half...


    holy crap...

    Arnie solo run at the defense... gets past several players,... our inside but his shot is palmed out of the air to deny us...

    actually, the replay shows the shot smacked the keeper in the face... but like they say about goals... they all count so he won't complain about how he kept it out...

    great solo skill from Arnie...

    shame there's no great team play...

    8 minutes to go...

    the keeper is getting treatment for being smacked in the face..

    the BBC are at least following the game...

    8:38
    CLOSE!
    West Ham 0-0 Wolves
    Marko Arnautovic goes on his own, he turns Willy Boly and fires at Rui Patricio, but the Portuguese blocks the shot with his face and he is down in injured in the penalty area.

    What a miss!
    West Ham 0-0 Wolves
    Raul Jimenez may want to avoid Match of the Day later.

    The move starts with a sensational cross-field pass from Ruben Neves to Matt Doherty.

    The right-back's cross is put on a plate for Jimenez, but he falls over the ball.






    or maybe that's just how exciting it finally became...

    dunno why we keep Anderson on for 90 minutes... he's absent in the 2nd half like most of the team...
