What a brilliant result we had against Manchester City! I was absolutely delighted after the game and so proud of how our boys played.
I also thought had Nolan’s goal not been disallowed, we could have picked up three points against the reigning champions who I felt thought they would beat us easily and were already thinking about their “must win” Champions League clash against Ajax.
We welcome Stoke to Upton Park on Monday for yet another game in front of the cameras and this surely is a game we must be looking to secure maximum points from.
Don’t get me wrong, Tony Pulis’ side will be hard to beat but compared to the teams we are playing in the coming weeks, you would hope our boys will really push to get all three points and continue our good momentum.
Looking at this week’s issue, our upcoming clashes against London rivals Spurs and Manchester United have got our writers all excited.
We’ve got some brilliant pieces from the likes of Joell Mayoh (pages 14&15), Richard Johnson (pages 20&21), Lucy Woolford (pages 22&23), Andrew Hosie (pages 26&27) and Geoff Hillyer (page 35) on these games and I think they will bring back some good/bad memories. You might also find yourself either agreeing with what they’ve said or completely disagreeing, either way they are worth a read.
Leading the issue is an excellent piece by News Editor Alex Shilling (pages 4&5) on why we’ve got more firepower up top than just Andy Carroll and why people are foolish to think otherwise. Rik Moran puts his case forward on why a move to the Olympic Stadium should be welcomed (page 8) before Dave Clark (page 9) looks past our tough run in to Christmas and explains why our games in January and February will make or break our season.
We’ve also got a piece from the Meagher family (page 10) arguing who are our best wing pairing while Carl Bateson outlines Stoke’s strengths and weaknesses in his piece (page 13).
Finally we've got a cracking article from Neil Chatteron (pages 24&25) on Hurricane Sandy and the destruction it left behind over in NYC and some cracking Opposition View articles this week with Stoke, Spurs and Man Utd fans talking to us about our games against them and their view of the mighty Hammers.
