West Ham 1 Arsenal 0 - Half Time Report
Pinch me, I must be dreaming! What a brilliant first half performance! Behrami and Kovac have been absolutely awesome, protecting the back four brilliantly. What an engine Behrami has! He is everywhere! And Kovac's pass for the goal was delicious, slide rule as they used to say when people knew what slide rules were, and Diamanti's run and finish were excellent.
At the back, Tomkins has been good, one terrible pass apart, and Upson has been excellent. Faubert has taken a couple of risks but has been generally sound and two clumsy challenges apart, Daprela has looked the part.
Mind you, after some good early contributions, Nouble has looked very ordinary. He lacks pace and his first touch is poor. Stanislas has looked raw too and Jimenez, a couple of contributions apart, has looked his usual self - lightweight. Green, of course, has made a hash of one cross already. Why didn't he punch the bloody thing instead of flap at it?
Can we keep this up? Behrami must have a 24 pack of Duracell up his arse if he keeps going through the second half! Any option to Nouble? I can't think of one, Sears can't lead the line on his own can he?
Brilliant first half, fingers crossed for the second! Please God, no injuries!
