Sunday Times Report Saturday's Game Honestly!
Apart from the player ratings, which I think were on the modest side, I was impressed by Paul Rowan's account of the game in the Sunday Times. Rowan opens the report with the words:
"Harry Redknapp had never been defeated as a manager by his old club West Ham in 10 meetings but yesterday his side were not only beaten but at times overwhelmed".
He then criticises Redknapp's assessment of an "end-to-end game" saying this "made light of West Ham's dominance".
His assessment of Green's performance is good too, referring to a "brilliant save" but putting Green's other saves in context by saying that he "dealt with a couple of long range efforts". He also describes how Cole "took up where Piquionne left off", rejecting suggestions from Cole knockers that he was poor when he came on.
All in all, it was refreshing to discover that somebody else watched the same game as me!
Hang on, why isn't Rowan part of this great Anti West Ham Media Conspiracy? Perhaps Fareham can explain!
