Faux Bert

Apparently Faubert had a weak debut for Real Madrid. Given he was West Ham's second worst player after Boa Morte, that's hardly suprising. I just can't understand why Real wanted him, unless he played a blinder against Spurs when Ramos was in charge. The last few times I saw him, he couldn't pass or tackle, nor was he particularly fast. Prior to his injury he had been shaping up well so perhaps he just needs some time. Boa Morte on the other hand ...

Still it's a million in the bank for the Hammers which we probably need with only a month until we need to find a buyer.

That said, the team is playing very well and didn't look outplayed by Man U yesterday. I think had we performed like that against Arsenal, we'd have beaten them. We probably gave them too much respect.

It really is quite scary how well we've been playing lately. I'm not entirely convinced Cole has now become a goalscoring machine -- I'd like to see a nippy predator working around him, to cash in on more of those openings -- but apart from that there's no real fault to find. The next few games, including the Cup tie, should all in theory be comfortably winnable... what can it all mean?

I take your point with Cole, most of his recent goals seem to be from close range after scrambles, not so much the Bellamy taking people on kind of thing.

I guess the new guy, Nsereko, should be able to do that. Sears and Hines were better than Boa Morte but neither has had much of look in since Zola took over.

But Zola and Clarke have turned some decent players into a decent team. So hands off Chelski!
