OMG you won!

Indeed that was the text message reply I got for 'er indoors on the way back from Goodison last night, to say our car journey home was pleasant would be an understatement but the Jockneys were there (well 3 of us anyway).
What for me was the best part of the game was not that we won but the manner in which we won.
As already mentioned in another post Rice was excellent and he was ably assisted by Noble and Obiang who both had excellent matches. Nobes did hi a few stray passes but his interception which led to the 2nd goal was about quick thinking and determination (though thank goodness the ref played advantage instead of giving us the free kick he wanted). Obiang was instrumental in goal no.3 and Rice did a great job breaking up play and he read the game well, the mid 3 to be fair covered for one another and as so often happens Noble was the spare go player in effect an outlet. Some of the passing was superb and rather than Everton being poor I thought we shut them down well, chased and harried. Masuaku was linking well with Anderson and Fabs obviously inspires confidence in his defenders. Balbuena kept it simple and stuck to his task and any time he played the ball out he slipped back into position. Diop looked assured and Zabs read so many situations well I thought he too was outstanding.
Our front players in particular Arnie and Andriy looked to have forged an understanding and complimented one another as the opening goal showed. But overall slick passing, good movement and closing down were all on display even the subs played their part Sanchez though needs to concentrate and adapt to the pace of the game! Snodgrass and Antonio saw the match out well and slotted in perfectly. To show how well West Ham did in the closing stages Everton got plenty of bodies behind the ball which smacked of damage limitation.
Great day out, great result and a very Happy Hammer!

Up the Jockneys!!

Seems both Pell and Perez have stated it was a misunderstanding and the Red Tops are purely mischief making Burkie.

Not unlike the fans travelling from London it's a fair old journey as we are based just outside Glasgow Dartford , it was a much happier trip than the one we made last season after that debacle of a 0-4 reverse, it's now Tuesday morning , I am off work for a weeks break and you still can't wipe the smile off my face.
