West Ham According to Fleet St
Today's round up is a little late due to last night's celebrations and the resulting mother of all hangovers today.
The Daily Express were impressed by "a drubbing (by) a Hammers outfit decimated by injury." West Ham deserved their first half lead and were 'rampant' in the second half.
The Daily Mail felt West Ham had "a conductor supreme in Nolberto Solano. Although he was pushed very close by two-goal Lee Bowyer and the tireless, intelligent Carlton Cole, the Peru international ran the show."
Similarly The Telegraph felt West Ham were "inspired by the outstanding Nolberto Solano" and "ripped Derby to shreds."
The Guardian felt "West Ham United were deserved victors" (obviously scoring five away from home and not conceding went some way to convincing The Guardian). The 'impressive Solano' also caught their eye.
The Independent say West Ham "swaggered into the top 10 with this proudest of catwalks." They also believe that "the East Enders have such pace, verve and blessed elan at their disposal that if and when they return to full strength, they will be some outfit."
The Times believe "Robert Green need not have bothered changing." West Ham "outclassed, out-fought and outthought" Derby. In fact "whenever West Ham strolled over the halfway line, panic coursed through the home ranks."
