so... over all... job done.
a bit (lot) of papering over the cracks....
but let's just be a little bit like Martin and just enjoy the result shall we...
"Chelsea 0-1 West Ham
Ahhh, football just makes your heart all fuzzy sometimes doesn't it?
Hammers keeper David Martin is almost in tears as he celebrates with the away end and then, as his team-mates disappear off down the tunnel, wanders off down the touchline and into the stand.
Where is he going? To find his dad - and Hammers legend - Alvin! The pair share a warm hug with dad whispering in the ear of his tearful son.
"Well played son, well played," will be the gist of it.
'I think we were both in tears'
West Ham keeper David Martin on making his Premier League debut aged 33 and marking it with a win: "It still doesn't feel real. I'm just pleased got through it, I didn't let anyone down and actually I enjoyed it in the end.
"My dad didn't say much - I think we were both in tears! For my dad to play for the club for 21 years and see it, and for me to make my debut, keep clean sheet and get win for the boys, it is so pleasing.
On his pre-match nerves: "I was struggling to eat for two days, Cressa [Ryan Cresswell] was laughing at me because my plate was taken away because I couldn't eat my food."
On whether he will keep his place: "I hope I've given myself a good chance but have to work hard and keep grounded."
