'If It's Football, It's Vital'

West Ham 2 Fulham 2

How disappointing was that?

Seconds from glory after the ten men of Fulham had come back from a goal down to lead 2-1 and then the home side get a dramatic equaliser.

Absolutely gutted!

Roy Hodgson gave Dikgacoi his first start and paired Kamara with Andrew Johnson up front with Etuhu and Zamora missing out, presumably through injury.

Fulham got off to a good start with Gera forcing an early save out of Green but just past the quarter of an hour mark went behind when Carlton Cole nodded home, fro inside the six yard box, a Diamanti free kick.

Our hosts could have doubled their lead shortly after when Tomkins missed a golden chance at the far post after Schwarzer had failed to cut out a Diamanti corner.

Andrew Johnson then missed a chance to level affairs when he slipped a great through ball from Danny Murphy wide. Kamara saw a shot saved by Green before Schwarzer smartly saved a shot from Parker.

Unfortunately, just before half time we were reduced to ten men when Dikgacoi received a straight red card, presumably for the hand in the face of an irritable Parker.

Down to ten men Hodgson introduced Baird in place of Johnson at half time and two minutes into the half we were level. Upson was punished for a lax challenge on Kamara and Murphy made no mistake with his spot kick.

Despite being a man light Fulham were looking good and Green did well to save form Kamara.

Amazingly, ten minutes later we were 2-1 up when a Konchesky corner saw Green flap and Gera netted, cue massed celebrations amongst the away support.

Sadly though, the dream of a second Premier League away win this season ended when, in injury time, Stanislas got that damned equaliser.

So near but so far and two weeks to ponder over it before our next Premier League game.

may be we should play with 10 men more often the worked hard for each other
truth sayer ffc
With us one-nil down and with only ten men, I feared the worse and am ashamed to say I turned the radio commentary off convinced we were going to get hammered. To then see the result and us to have done so well I am massively proud of the team. Great stuff!

I don't know whether to be pleased that we fought back with 10 or disappointed that we once again allowed a goal in the 90th. Dikgacoi has played two matches (not even 90 minutes total) and has picked a yellow and a red. What do you want to bet he doesn't see the pitch for a few weeks.
Teddy_KGB
well no fulham player will see the field for a couple of weeks anyway...
woodysweats
Haha. Hopefully, the fightback and the late equaliser will inspire the team to a few wins in the coming matches.

hear hear, about time we went on a long unbeaten run isn't it!
Al Billy
and how many games would constitute a long run :-)

I was also happy to see that Kamara played well, with Zamora scoring once a season we need Kamara to prove he can do the business
