Another stubborn performance from the lads today saw us pick up 3 points at Hull City for the first time in over 50 years. This achievement still won't stop the part time percy's and the 'West Ham way' rubbish they come out with, but for real fans it's a revelation to watch the club continue to be hard to beat.
It was no classic by any means, but strong performances by Faye and Green at the back, a revelatory Mark Noble and a back to form Jack Collison, combined with cracking performances by Cole and Baldock ensured we just had too much for a Hull team looking for their 5th home win on the trot. Everyone contributed, though captain Kevin Nolan had a game he probably want to forget. Our class is starting to show in this league, even if it's not reflected in a posession game, it is reflected in the few goals conceded and the clinical finishing, and that is what we will get us promoted.
Delighted for the lads, as for the keyboard warriors who are still having a go at our manager, feel free to start your campaign to bring Zola back, you'll end up getting the losing football you want to bring back to Upton Park….
