I just only hoped I saw this for the rest of the game…..(bloody buffering…)
It was a wonder goal from Bale that sealed the Spuds victory, but TBH, it just shows that they are a one man team.
I didn’t see any other industry on their part – their keeper played well to deny us up front.
I was pleased to see Carroll bury the penalty and young Joseph get that super second goal, but I am not sure what we could have done more to stop Bale – and you simply could not have stopped that screamer from him. Jussi had a blinder.
It was a heart breaking defeat – 90 seconds away from a well earned draw – but Spuds were bailed out (pun intended).
Not the right result, but I could not fault the effort of the Hammers. Hoping that Carroll builds on this now – Stoke awaits and we need the three points now before we get sucked in to a relegation scrap.
