    Sir Trevis texting in the stands... which is about right... not a lot to write home about...


    We've had a corner (resulting in a saved header) and Antonio just ran into the box but had no one to pass to...

    Noble plays...

    Wilshere is out injured...

    Watford almost get through on goal and are still camped out around the box... but Fabianski finally gathers and we get to catch our breath

    corner to Watford after a bit of a defensive faff....

    this is #999 in the list of games we really have no excuse not to win... but we're making heavy going of it thus far...

    Noble hoofs it into row Z from inside the area...

    we have to beat these teams... this is our cushy run into the new year... with Arnie out and games against all the good teams to follow, we need every point on the board we can get.

    Good run and shot from Antonio but the keeper saves

    halfway through the half... Watford are getting some good balls into the asa... they have a corner... not looking like the easy three points prior to Xmas it was supposed to be...

    and there you have it... penalty to Watford...

    Balbuena gets a yellow for his troubles...

    was just looking at the table and realizing if everything stayed the same but we got the victory... we could go up to 6th...

    but we're not a player injured and possibly about to go behind - at home...


    this is forever the West Ham way...

    that'll currently drop us to 11th...

    we don't look like getting out of this one...

    Looks like Balbuena is being replaced by Ogbonna after that tackle that cost us the penalty...

    ten minutes till half time then I'm off...

    Looks like West Ham have already given up for the holidays...

    OMG... our defending is comical...

    we're currently 11th, Watford are currently 6th...

    and it looks like we'll lose by more than the single goal...

    ogbonna injures himself as one of several players throwing himself desperately at balls ... we're all over the place... no shape, not plan... nothing...

    but somehow we get a free kick right on the edge of the area...

    we'll see if this ball finally gets where it's supposed to be going...

    nope

    nope

    Chicha truest be acrobatic.. keeper saves...

    at least we get a corner...


    but predictably Watford clear it without much trouble...

    3 mins of added time for the half... almost went 0-2 behind...

    my prediction at this stage is we're not going to win this one...

    I thought we were very Unlucky yesterday not to get anything from the game.On another day we could of won 3/4-2 with the chances we created yesterday(twice hiting the bar and once on the Post),It was just one those days where Watford took their chances and we didn`t. I think we`re bounce back against Saints on Thursday-Hopefully have Arnie back for that.

    It`s clear we do need to bring people in in January especially in Defensive area and maybe another striker to help Chicha and Arnie upfront as Carroll and Perez arn`t really that good in my opinion.
    We`re find out aswell this week if we`re going to offer Nasri a Contract - Going by what Pellegrini has said it seems his attidude if Good and wants to be part of the team which personally is good as on his day he can be a very good player but it all depends on his attitiude.

    I disagree Arran, better team won.

    From where I'm sitting we had this coming in the last four games.  If we were playing better oppression we would have conceded goals. Yesterday we did play a better team and our commitment and defence were found wanting.
