well, it fuckin' was 2-1 and looking to settle there but then disaster struck: Diame pulled his hamstring on the 73rd and went off, then we panicked and retreated and to coplete the day unlucky Collins scored in the wrong end.
those who know me will tell you I ain't too interested in foreing imports at West Ham, and even with Di Canio I have my reservations, but I have to admit Diame was different class, both with Chelsea which I attended and with Liverpool which I saw on the box.
the man turned both games almost singlehandedly and reminded us of Scott Parker at his best.
at the Chelsea game I didn't realise just how great his contribution was, but later that night watching the Match of the Day and seeing the analysis I was gobsmacked.
of course, the problem with this kind of play that both Parker and Diame have is that the strain for the body is so great that these kind of injuries are just a matter of time.
maybe it's a blessing in disguise, as if he carried on like that I wouldn't hope to see him in our colours after January 31st.
by the way, the reason I don't get too excited with young foreign players is this: for them the "English Trip" is West Ham (or Wigan, or Swansea, or Villa...), then Arsenal, then one of the two Manchesters.
getting too fuckin' excited for players liek Tevez, Macherano et all
...not in this corner
