West Ham 0 Manchester City 0

How disappointing was that? On a day when many in the press, as well as fellow supporters, figured we should be happy to get any points going into the match we were blatantly robbed of a victory over the defending Premier League champions by the end of it. Kevin Nolan was at his best once again, slotting home a ball dropped in courtesy of a Mark Noble free kick only to have it ruled offside. Well Kev wasn’t, and there is no debating that. West Ham played remarkably well in the first 20 minutes of the match with Momo Diame and Yossi Benayoun also coming within inches of goals of their own. Manchester City took over for much of the remainder of the game, with resolute defending being supplied by the team as a whole. James Collins turned in one of his best performances of the season, barring his re-debut against Aston Villa and Winston Reid removed any doubts in our minds over whether he or James Tomkins should be regularly starting alongside Collins. And Carlos Tevez, a cult icon at Upton Park, had another homecoming. Carlos and the love he has for the club and its fans makes one forget about all the bad things in the modern game, even if he'[s occasionally been part of the problem. Oh, and Big Andy nearly scored the goal of the season with a beautiful bicycle kick attempt. It’ll come Andy, don’t ya worry.
