we've got more than enough to see off Norwich. the reverse fixture was a diabolical collapse by us after leading the game so we'll be keen not to repeat that.

i'd expect Nocerino to get more of a look in as we'll not need the blood and guts defensive play of Taylor in this game, although it would be harsh to leave him out.

it'll probably be similar to the side that played Villa with Reid looking to come on for a run out later on so the only possible changes are the two Italians. Boriello isn't much of a target man so we'd need to adapt our play somewhat but as the home side it is down to us to dictate the tempo.

i think another clean sheet is on the cards and, possibly, another 2-0 win.

FT

West Ham 2-0 Norwich
1-0 Collins 84'
2-0 Diame 90'

The Hammers late show piles on the misery for Norwich and their under fire manager.

I haven't seen the highlights yet but I understand that our keepr Adrian played a real blinder in goal.

Massive, massive win. make no mistake about that.

Adrian, once again, was immense. absolutely loving him at the moment.

our defence was unusually open but i guess that is because we were looking for more openings in the opposition than we have done in previous games but luckily Adrian is in fine form at the moment and was more than a match for the Norwich strike force - even when reduced to one on one.

COle was, as always, utterly hopeless and i'll be looking forward to Carroll's return. in the meantime though Boriello has to start the next game just to give us somebody willing to put a shift in. there was one point we had the ball out wide and Cole was just laid out on the floor after a feeble penalty and didn't get up for a good minute or two which meant it was impossible to put the cross in. pathetic behaviour.

was happy to see Diame nick a goal. he's been disinterested and hopeless for a while now so maybe this will give him a bit more drive to perform for the rest of the season.

top half is good, of course, but the points gap is still far from comfortable. winning these winnable games will go some way to ensuring our safety though.

unpretty and hard fought but an absolutely vital three points. four games unbeaten and three wins on the trot in the top flight for the first time in a number of years. this is more like it.
