This was coming. We have been getting results whilst playing poorly. So, no surprise that when we did play well in the first half and deservedly took the lead early in the second, that we get sucker punched and end up losing a game. Did Green have a save to make? He retrieved the ball from the net twice but there was nothing else for him to do. Quite how we allowed Burnley to score twice is anybody's guess. First half they sat back and invited us on, second half they thought, "Hang on, this West Ham team aint all that" and got their reward for a little bit of enterprise.
The big question is why the hell Taylor was taken off. Burnley promptly equalised and it was all down hill from there! Dire!
It could be a difficult December! I am at Reading next Saturday and hope we show more composure in front of goal and in defence than we did today!
