West Ham 1 Everton 1

West Ham started with Faubert and Ilunga in as full backs and Obinna in for Cole.

West Ham started a little slowly but worked hard at closing down space and gradual worked their way into the game. Their hard work was rewarded in the 16th minute when Kovac tried an overhead shot from 10 yards and Hibbert deflected the ball into the back of his own net.

West Ham then had a couple of opportunities to extend their lead. In the 20th minute Obinna cut in from the right and fired a shot into the side of the net. In the 26th minute Upson headed well over from 8 yards.

In the 23rd minute Ilunga was forced off and Spector came on to replace him at left back. In the 43nd minute Everton got the equaliser when a cross from the left wing found Coleman completely unmarked at the far post to shoot home from 5 yards.

In the 43rd minute Upson headed wide from 10 yards. Two minutes after that Parker tried to chip Howard from 18 yards only to see his shot drop onto the top of the net. In the 46th minute Coleman had a good opportunity to grab his second but shot well wide from 13 yards.

Everton dominated the second half early on. In the 51st minute Pienaar shot over from just inside the area. In the 56th minute Rodwell fired wide from 23 yards. In the 56th minute Cole replaced a limping Piquionne.

In the 70th minute a great run from Sears down the right and a good cross across the area found Cole unmarked but Cole scuffed his shot wide from 12 yards. That chance seemed to spur West Ham into action and in the 72nd minute Tomkins headed over from 7 yards.

In the 74th minute Obinna fired a 25 yard freekick straight into the wall. However apart from that little five minute spell it was Everton who looked the more likely to score. Their best chance fell to Cahill whose shot from 10 yards was easily saved by Green.

In the end a draw was probably a fair result. West Ham pick up another point but appear to have lost Ilunga for a while, and Piquionne looked to be carrying some sort of injury when he limped off.

I was at The Boleyn today! I said I would have taken a point before the game being how much of a bogie team everton have become for us! Guess was the best result we could have hoped for, but always a bit hard to take when you go one up, albeit it from a fluke!

I've just watched the game on fox (in U.S. for Christmas) Well happy with point against one of two bogie teams (bolton). I have to say the Faubert is total shit, the worse player we've had in a long, long time. 5 points from a possible 9 with 2 away games, should be happy with that. As long as we beat Wolves then happy days at mo.

Why does Grant keep playing LBM,Faubert and Kovac none of them have a clue, B@@@@y waste of space the lot of them!!!!
Good results so far this festive period but i have a niggling debt in my mind that we have been a touch fortunate but having said that i hope it continues!!
lets hope some of the players linked to us (Bridge, Young,Sidwell) to name three turn out to be fact and not fantasy, we need all the help we can get.

Boa Morte is a mixed bag to me- he doesn't track back enuf at times,which led to the equalizer ,as Spector was forced to occupy the space where Boa Morte shud have been. But the flip side is that he does make some very gud passes.

Wolves win at Anfield ,compared to our total humilliation at the hands of Liverpool is more proof that Grant has to go

There goal was caused by Faubert chasing their left mid right across the park and the rest of the back four (3 of them) moved right. Sears should have dropped back to cover Faubert going AWOL. Who got within 10 yards of Fellaini all Night, apart from the ref! We don't work hard enough!!!!
