Trials, Tribulations and Triumphs of being 3,473 Miles from Upton Park and West Ham United (Aug 2011 - May 2016)
Yeah, never really in it but I think we had em worried for a bit in the 2nd.
I dunno Smitty, "for a bit" sounds a trifle harsh. After their second I thought we really sprang to life and after Vaz Te's bicycle kick goal I fancied us to pull even. Of course they had taken their boots off the gas, but in the not too distant past we might have packed it in 2 nil down. A loss but a sign of overall improvement nonetheless !
OK Point taken. We looked alright in the 2nd.Agreed, we look like we're back in it and not gonna roll over.
for a 3-1 loss, I must say I'm surprisingly optimistic Mr Smitty, old chap !
We got a goal!!In fact, we got a goal in each of the last 2 bouts, gotta put your chin up.:D
There is no doubt that City were the better team, but I do not think that we played that bad. WIth 6 midfielders we should have shut them down a little bit more.
Agreed Don't Hurt 'Em. Crazy Horse (Reid) and Tomka did not have their best games - a mix up, gave Citeh their first and then with eleven men back for a Citeh corner we have no one marking their striker on the near post. Still we didn't play it as tight as we did against Spuds and they found a space between our defence and our midfield, we'll have to watch out for that if we go six again.
