The start of something special?

Are we witnessing the start of something special at West Ham under David Moyes?

Fresh on the back of away wins and clean sheets against Wolves and Leciester City we produce an  almost  comeback like that.

The start of the London derby looked like the West Ham of old conceding three goals in twenty minutes through sloppy defending.

But the West Ham of old would have given up and never have produced the belief to grab a point!

Sure Spurs missed a number of chances with Kane hitting the post and Gareth Bale missing an open goal but with eight minutes left West Ham made one of the most amazing recoveries in Premier League history woith what must be the goal of the season from Manuel Lanzini.

That point felt like a win to all West Ham supporters and must have felt like a defeat for all Spurs fans.

West Ham climb up the table to the eighth spot in the Premier League table and no-one would bet against him turning over Manchester City next week who sit in tenth place.

The team are full of confidence under their new playing captain Declan Rice and must feel they can take on anyone.

Europe here we come 😉

  1. Never was a game of two halves a more appropriate phrase, second best all over the field n the first half, Spurs had the game wrapped up, second half they were second best, outplayed and outfought for most of it, never giving up we showed unbelievable spirit and resilience and eventually it paid off with the most dramatic goal I can remember 😀💪🥳🍀🎉 COYI!!!

  2. OMG I cannot believe I have just watched a thrilling game like that. What a come back with 8 minutes left I’m buzzing . Wow what a goal from Lanzini , that was special! Yes it does feel like a win. The team done brilliantly well for not giving up . The team spirit and fight , now that’s West Ham . Well done lads keep it going . COYI ⚒

  3. I think we look so much fitter under Moyes. Antonio Is the perfect example, Under Pellegrini, he was out on his feet at 70mins every week, now he can last 90mins. We look hungry, and the celebrations for the goal was fantastic to see how much it meant to all those players.
    For me the biggest differences are very basic. Fitness, effort and a will for every player to really get Involved in the game. No passengers (Anderson!)

    With the games we’ve played so far and the ones we have November and December, you would bet against us being in the top 6 come Christmas.

  4. One of the most dramatic goals i can remember. Certainly one of the most enjoyable. Pure joy. Emotional. It’s up there. As West Ham’s greatest moments go, it’s up there with Trevor brookings header, 1980 fa cup final. Carlos Tevez goal when he jumped into the crowd v Spurs. Paula di canios scissor kick. Obiang screamer from a year ago. Andy carols scissor kick from a few years ago. Dean ashtons scissor kick. One of macavennies can’t remember which there were so many. Goal by Liam Brady many moons ago. Alan Devonshire goal against Chelsea away 1996. I could go on. You probably get the idea.

  5. Moyes and his team seem to have have injected a fantastic work ethic into this squad of players. That’s where it starts I think. They are all working hard for each other and as a result the team spirit seems to be as high as I can remember. Happy days.

  6. I find it really hard hard to recall games where we come back and get something from being behind with a general feeling of here we go again when we concede and the heads go down. Great to see a team with such fight and spirit and to do it against the spuds is the icing on the cake. I hope we can now use this to kick on in any game where we fall behind like never before – if behind don’t let your heads go down and remember the Alamo, sorry THAT Spurs game. This one result could really be a turning point for us in my opinion. Let’s just pray that the usual curses of injuries, bad luck and dodgy decisions can also be behind us! COYI!
