West Ham United 2 - 1 Fulham

comment on the article

Another victory to cement West Ham's position in the top half of the league with 32 points. 6 points clear of the bottom half and a game in hand.

Ashton adds to his goal tally with a superb goal.

Anton Ferdinand marks his return from injury with yet another goal to seal the win.

What is encouraging is the number of opportunities created and the shots on goal. Faubert and Bowyer returns.

What is discouraging is the early goal that threatens to derail the rest of the game eg Arsenal and now Fulham.

Nevertheless, West Ham is within striking range of a place in Europe (6-7 points with a game in hand).

Its not every season we can say we're safe midway in the season but we're safe!

Its now time to step up if the Hammers want more opportunities to showcase their skills next season. The return of key players from injuries are now timely.

The gaffer has the squad. The players have the attitude to grind out victories like today. Perhaps with a little luck, who knows. Champion's league anyone?

It's a shame football is so crooked these days, otherwise the mighty Hammers would be playing the likes of Scunthorpe.

Great result for the hammers yesterday. Fulham tried and did ok but will have to improve if they have any chance of staying up!

The 2-1 scoreline flattered them! I think Fulham will do well not to go down this season. Would be good if they stayed up and sent Wigan down instead!

Good luck with the rest of the season Fulham. Hopefully you will stick with your manager! It's not his fault he inheritted a poor squad with the likes of Koncheski in the team! if you do go down, make sure you beat Sheffield United next season ;)
