The Magic of the FA Cup!

This is what it's all about. The passion of the FA Cup is like no other for me. As kid I remember the cup run that took us to the semi final in 1991 to be robbed by the ludicrous sending off of Tony Gale by the since maligned ref Keith Hackett. And of course nobody can forget the heart ache of 2 years ago as the clock hit 90 minutes the score board said 3-2 to the mighty hammers only for it all to come crushing down. That's as close as it gets but it leaves us all hungry for more and only reiterates the drama and passion of the FA Cup which is rivaled by no other competition in the world.

Today sees us attempt to get past the first stage of the competition as the premier league clubs enter the third round. The draw has not been particularly kind to us early doors with us drawing a home tie against the in form Manchester City, a club rejuvinated under the ex England boss Sven Goran Eriksson. The hammers form has been inconsistent this season although we have a very healthy 29 points on the table. It is pretty clear that we are going to have a mediocre season on the league front and will probably languish somewhere in midtable come the end of the season. So it makes it all the more important to give the fans something to get excited about via the FA Cup.

So I am going to go out on a limb and say we will nick this game 2-1 today but I also have a gut feel that it may go to a replay. I expect Curbs to go with the 4-5-1 system with Carlton COle as the lone striker again. Our midfield will be hard pushed to keep the likes of Elano and Petrov quiet and a five man midfield will seem quite attractive to curbs I'm sure.

Match Prediction: Reading Home

West Ham Form: WDLWLW
Reading Form: LLDWDW

Venue: Upton Park
Capacity: 35640

Probable Hammers lineup: Green, Neill, Upson, Spector, McCartney, Solano, Ljungberg, Parker, Mullins, Cole, Ashton.

Prediction 3-1: I reckon after that good result at the weekend we'll be champing at the bit to get our home form going and we will over power an inferior Reading team for some much wanted xmas cheer.

Match Preview: Middlesboro Away

Boro Form: DDLDWW
West Ham Form: DWDLWL

Venue: Riverside Stadium
Capacity: 34500

Probable Hammers lineup: Green, Neill, Upson, Collins, McCartney, Solano, Ljungberg, Parker, Mullins, LBM, Ashton.

Prediction 1-1: Unfortunately Boro have had a little bit of form recently and we could be a little fragile after the Everton debacle. Our Riverside form is not that great so draw at best for me.

Chelsea 1 - 0 West Ham

Fucken unlucky! Joe was offside for me ('CAUSE HE WAS!) but sometimes you get them and sometimes you don't. But Joe did do well to split the defenders and get himself into a good position, to collect the ball, in the first place, his finish was also pretty good. But his celebration, what a cunt! No respect there for a club that he owes everything too. Always had a soft spot for Joe but he has now officially made the shit list!

Onto the game, what a gutsy performance from the lads, we were in their face big time. There's a real nasty streak in the team at the moment and I like it! We gave them nothing and worked our bollocks off, can't ask for anymore than that! For two teams that are supposed to be miles apart in quality, I thought there was very little difference. We were definitely worth a draw IMO. In fact I reckon that if we had just a bit more quality i.e. Tevez, I think we might have nicked this one.

I thought to a man all played well, gave everything and played to the best of their ability. The exception to this was Ethers, for me he is a one trick pony, and if that trick doesn't work he offers nothing else. Sorry Ethers fans and I know there's a few of you on here but he just isn't that good.

Anyway, don't want to be negative, overall was happy enough with the game. We are looking pretty solid. Never pleased with a loss but with effort like that I've no complaints and was very proud of the lads.
