It's taken a few days to sink in, but Chelsea didn't beat the Hammers!!! I thought that after the dismal effort at home against Tottenham, that Chelsea would destroy us. Especially due to the fact that Frank Lampard had sat out of the mid week game due to suspension. Instead the boys played well! Zola had them set up to nullify the attacks of Chelsea forcing them to play through the middle, so when the ball bounced out we could counter attack effectively.
The only thing that I do despair at is the fact that Carlton Cole has definitely stopped scoring again. He should have made it 2-1 on Sunday in the dieing moments but chose to shoot instead of rounding the keeper and slotting the ball in. At times we look like a very blunt hot knife cutting through butter - i.e. we get through the defence easily, but have no sharpness in front of goal.
The defence is definitely better, I hope Zola now works on attack!!!
