West Ham United 3 Fulham 1 (micro post)

Last night I travelled up to Putney to see John Otway play the Half Moon. A good night. At least up until a journey home from hell. Having caught the last train back to Shepperton (delayed twenty minutes) South West Trains decided to terminate it's journey at Teddington. One o'clock in the morning and there's 30 strangers all waiting for a promised group of taxi's to arrive to take us home. I eventually clambered into bed around three in the morning.

Today it seems Fulham played like they were all on the same train. West Ham are fast becoming our bogey team. Three individual errors really didn't help our cause and a blockbuster shot from Paul Konchesky, that kept us in the game at the half way point, was just about our only effort on goal.
