Spurs beaten – the Irons fans react!

For David Gold – as reported exclusively at ClaretandHugh – it was the sweetest night of the season. For the fans it was emotional, passionate and as exciting as it gets.
Here’s how they have been reacting on the CandH Facebook forum @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/363174467150521/
BilicberryO Totally deserved we were superb. COYI

O I’m so happy..

O Thought Kouyate and Ogbonna were immense. Emineke worked their centre halves brilliantly, always willing to press and harass and held it up well. Bilic had it spot on……super Slav!

O Best ever.

O Slav : “Spurs concede the least goals and run the most so to out-play them is big and they should be happy it was just one goal they conceded.” You tell ’em Slav

O You Beauty!

O Slaven produced tactics tonight on a level with John Lyall’s 1980 Cup Final, when Pearson moved into midfield and completely bamboozled Arsenal. By playing Kouyate as a 3rd centre back that stopped Kane running the channels. This tactic also allowed our full backs to press forward and prevented Spurs’ full backs getting forward.
Brilliant from Slav and so refreshing to see a manager not afraid to try formations/tactics

  1. The stress of not wanting to loose or draw this game,ruined the game for me…but alls well,ends well

  2. It was a demanding performance from West Ham . Three center backs and a wide midfield suffocated Tottenham whilst Emineke & Antonio & Payet bambozzled them . A great physical presence that overwhelmed the Spuds . With that kind of football who would say we stand no chance in the Chamions League if we should qualify . Away to Everton & Chelsea will be definetly our biggest chance to finish fourth and be in the hat when the draw is made . Manchester United in the Cup is very winnable , and so if we continue playing with the enthusiasm of last night there are dreams can be recognized and realized .
    West Ham made me a very proud supporter last night and come what may we shall begin our life at the OS with our heads held high . It could have been any team we played against last night , but the fact it was Tottenham + stalling their championship ambitions made it all the sweeter . It was great to see Reece Oxford being given such an important role to play and the faith Bilic has in our youngsters,,, the only way up is up .
    Slaven Bilics ” claret & blue ” army are on the March during March ,, love it .
    We ( or me ) may be dreaming too much ,, but hey ,, why not ???.

    Come on you Hammers .

  3. Great game ,an amazing goal, top work overall from all the players.
    62pts and top 6 or even top 4 look closer.
    Stats.com League predictions puts us at about 58pts and 8th place for now lets prove stats wrong! 😀
