Hard to believe that the Ogbonna who played so well last night was the same player that played so poorly against Wimbledon a few months ago.

Was so promising for the future getting to watch Anderson and Lanzini get on the ball and put together some nice passing moves. The victory was never really in doubt from the start of the match yesterday.

Still crazy to think considering how much we have struggled for a starting XI for the past few seasons that yesterday's starting XI was without Arnoutovic, Nasri, Yarmalenko, Wilshire, Antonio, Reid, Balbuena, Zabelta, Carroll!

Highlights in case anyone missed it. Oh by the way, nice bit of skill by Noble in the middle there ;)

I feel an england call up on the books. maybe two.
Joking aside though, having represented England at every level, including captaining them, you would have thought he would have had a call.
Obviously he should have done when Woy was in charge, but hey ho.

What a Great Day,spent most of it wiping a bit of grit outta me eye...if you know what I mean..
Brilliant to win for Bill (March 2nd is now recognised as a Bank Holiday for all Irons Fans,so tell yer
bosses... :lol: )

Found that...some good close up stuff of the great man...

But not a great game to watch IMO....Geordies were a bit stifling even 2-0 down,lesser sides have
caused us more probs.
But Again everyone played well,Oggy and Issa seemed to be the guys i was bigging up the most,
Clapping..Well Played and all that...Strange as we won 2-0.

MOTM ....I'm gonna go Men(and Ladies) of the Match and give it to the crowd,special mention
to the Bobby Moore lot...they were Brilliant.

Cracking band on the concourse after,seriously good,all the old rock covers..oasis,went down
really well,had a couple watching them.....Rounded of a cracking day....well managed to sink
a few more after...regretting it now... :lol:

Easy win against a poor Newcastle team.
Did not need to give everything.
Played some decent football that revolved around Lanzini.
Noble made me cringe when done he the big 'I am West Ham and I support Atnautovuc' action wiith the armband. Noble a liability who needs to go.

Now I've always been really suss about Fredericks and have been pretty vocal about it. Just didn't think he was good enough and some of his performances this season seemed to back up my opinion.

However...Recently there has been a real improvement in his form and he's showing signs he could develop in to a very decent player. I'll hold my hands up here, fair play to the fella. I really, really hope he continues to improve, he seems to have all the attributes necessary to be a good full back but his application seemed to be sorely lacking - perhaps Pelle saw this and has been working with him on it. Whatever they're doing, it appears to be working, he was mostly excellent last night.

He has a lot of rough edges to smooth out, Billy.

Rarely see a decent final ball from him at the sharp end,, and he does leave himself stranded after a rushed tackle at the other end.

Can see the improvement,tho.

Hello Mike.
The band played on the top of a Heineken bar bus, not that far from the club shop.
It did look really good and I would’ve stayed but I had business on the boats to attend to ;)
