Should be 4-1 up, hit the post twice, but can't complain with how we played after the first 5 mins.

Palace looked shocking defensively.

Well late goal for Palace but no matter, we're up to 4th.

Arguably our best performance of the season that with chances created.

Liverpool home and Villa away next 2, would love to sneak at least 1 win out of those 2.

The scoreline doesn't reflect how dominant the Hammers were. Antonio could have scored 4. Soucek and Rice are as good as any two deep midfielders in the Premier League.

The rebirth of the Moyesiah is complete. He's back to his best when he was at Everton
Lord David isn’t done yet but we might have to start taking this conversation more seriously soon if this continues. Considering how little hope there was for this squad at the start of the season it’s been a fine effort so far.

I'd say for three quarters of the match we dominated. Benrahma is getting slowly better by the game. Soucek's ability to get in the right spots in the box and actually put away his chances is pretty elite.

Rice is the key though, his ability to roam, protect the back 4, of course not having Mark Noble play next to him helps also.

What a disaster.
That's the literal opposite of last week where the assistant ref should never raise the ******* flag. Horrible

Cant believe that the defence werent affected by the flag.

You've got to play to the whistle but thats such a 2021 type goal.

I think that's West broms fault. Gotta keep playing. If there's no whistle then the flag doesn't mean anything

Considering the flag is only meant to go up when it's absolutely certain, I don't blame the players at all.
Definitely a good example why the flag should stay down unless its 100% certainty.

I'm just waiting for the first serious injury after play has been allowed to continue.
