I'm getting fed up with saying it, but the performance still wasn't there for me.
But it is a great result before the weekend's game - takes the pressure off a bit.
I didn't think Dembele looked too good again last night and was a bit surprised when the subs came and Holtby went off rather than the carded Dembele, but irrespective of what subs AVB made, we got the result. A shame Lemmon didn't get more of the ball again, as he seems to fired up of late, and although Holtby went off, I thought he did enough again to show why he was brought in.
I just hope that Bale now continues scoring and gets 20 odd or else Ade had better start getting on the score sheet. Another couple of chances last night that should have settled him. Be interesting to see who AVB plays against Woolwich if Daffy is fit.
Another 3 points on Sunday would be good to get some daylight between us and Woolwich and put pressure on the Chavs.
I watched last night, West Ham put up a great fight and deserved better. Bales goal came from nowhere, well, a fair way out at least. I was all set to gloat and with only one point in it, confident of over turning Spurs (and Chelsea). A different matter now, Spurs may go 7 points clear. Someone needs to send Bale lasagne, and fast.
