    Free kick for WH as Laurent gives a push in the back. Sincs takes, Laurent shepards out for goal kick.

    Defoe pulled down by Keowgn. Yellow to the Arse defender. Free kick to WH. Played into edge of area. Campbell finds Vierra.

    Sub for WH ... Breen on for Winterburn.

    Cross by Arse comes to Wiltford. Shot goes side netting.

    Breen takes up center position in defense along with Repka.

    what I should say is that I don't have a sound card. My computer was aquired from my brothers company, so it's a "work" computer and he says a sound card won't fit in it.

    I forgot to set my alarm this morning otherwise I would have driven into NYC and watched at a bar.

    That happens far too often.

    Come on you Irons!!!!!

    James takes free kick. Plays it long. Ball goes out, throw for Hammers.

    2-1, West Ham.

    Defoe presses forward to Arse area ... Schem called offsides.

    Henry offside as Kanu breaks out. A bit lucky. James takes free kick.

    PENALTY!!!!!!!!

    Cole brings down Cole. Ashely takes down Joe.

    Ref points to spot, immediately

    Arse protesting vehemnetly

    I believe he did.

    Vierra booked for dissent.

    Sounds like a scrum going on right now.

    Pressure growing on Freddie as he steps up take the kick...

    Stoned by Seaman. Dives to his right on a poor effort by Freddie.

    What might have been. Oh, lets hope that does not come back to bite us in the ass.

    Goal kick taken by James.

    Kanu pushed by Breen. Free kick just outside the circle for the Arse.

    henry inside the area, shem with a saving challenge. Corner to the Arse.

    All 11 back to defend. Left foot to penalty spot cleared away but only temporarily.

    Ball played back to Seaman. Arse seem to be stepping it up. Need a counter or something from West Ham.

    still 2-1, West Ham.

    Kanu turns .. shot goes over the bar. Goal kick for James.

    Should be about 10 minutes left. Can we hang on?

    Sinclair forces a throw as Laurent muffs a pass. Throw to WH, nothing comes of it. Seaman releases Arse on the break.

    Shot by Kanu, forces a save from James.

    83 minute.

    Joe has picked up a knock. Coming off for Moncur, I believe.

    Not what we needed.

    I tell you my teams have to be the worst penalty taking teams. WHU, Metro, USA and Holland. Only the USA are respectable at pk's.

    in short, it's my fault. I'm sorry.

    Five minutes left.

    Hammers on the attack, Sincs on the edge of the Arse area. Cross is a deep one. Cleared.

    Moncur gets booked. Temperatures are rising in the closing minutes of this one.

    Free kick into WH area, clearance by Repka. Arse throw.

    Equalizer for Arse.

    Wiltord strike draws the Arse equal.

    88 minute

    all level. Missed PK comes back to haunt West Ham.

    Arse pressing for the winner. Poor challenge gives the Arse a free kick. Eight in the wall for the Hammers.

    3 minutes of stoppage.

    Henry over the ball. Deflection off the wall ... tipped over the bar .. corner to Arse.

    carrick clears to Defoe.

    Moncur catches Edu but ref allows play to continue. Eventually a throw to the Arse. Cole takes.

    Confusion in the area for WH, cleared by Breen.

    Arse give up a free kick, fouling Cisse. James to take free kick.

    Final whistle.

    2-2 draw.

    WH gets a point.

    I'm sorry I have to say it...

    "typical West Ham"

    "...and like my dreams they fade and die"

    This is the perfect club for a split personality optimist/pessimist like me. I'm riding high for 45 mins and then suddenly I'm in the dumps and quoting this team's old cliches.

    This one still leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

    Next up Charlton.

    I was moving this weekend and couldn't watch the game. My friend in Florida calls me with updates.

    Tight first half. Then Joe scores ("Joe Cole...can you believe it?" says my friend.)

    Hammers 1-0

    Then Kanoute
    Hammers 2-0

    Then Henry scores for the Arse...
    That's okay...its still 2-1

    The killer was Kanoute's pk. My friend calls me. He says "I will hold the phone up so you can hear the celebration." I tensely wait in anticipation and hear what I think are shouts of jubilation as Kanoute drills one home to build the insurmountable 3-1 lead.

    I don't have to rehash what the remaining minutes bore out...

    In the end the Hammers were lucky to escape with a draw with the barrage of attacks by the Gooners.

    You DO NOT blow penalty kicks.

    Typical Hammers.

    Paolo, please get well soon.

    just to recap... The MetroStars missed a pk on Sunday too.

    I reiterate, It's my fault. I'm sorry.

    I accept your apology.

    Not sure how to solve the problem however ... short of you giving up being a WH fan.
