West Ham vs Sp#rs - in the Papers
Most of the Sunday papers today are concentrating on Rob Green's performance and his gesture to the press at the end of the game.
Reading the papers you might be lead to believe that West Ham won the game against the run of play and facing a barrage of shots from Sp#rs.
The Mirror say "he (Green) was simply magnificent yesterday, inspiring the revitalised Hammers to their first league victory of the season."
The News of the World say, 'it was Green's four fine saves, one of them world class, that secured the points against their bitter rivals.' However the NoW also has praise for the front line and for Parker,
"Piquionne is starting to look a bargain at just £1million and his winning header in the 29th minute gave a glimpse of his potential for the season ahead. He, along with Nigerian strike partner Victor Obinna, have added some desperately needed pace to the front line which was sorely lacking under Gianfranco Zola.
Scott Parker looks like one of the best midfielders in the country at present."
The Daily Mail say that "Sp#rs had been forced into long-range shots, with West Ham closing them down quickly and denying them room to create clear chances, Scott Parker and Noble terrier-like in midfield."
