I was sat in with the home fans, but enjoyed the match, the ground and the whole day. Referee got all the decisions right. First half we always looked a threat. Second half we reverted to type, with Foster time wasting. Got what we deserved for that, but did not give up. A draw was about right. My first Pulis time away game since the Villa cup game two years ago. We have improved, but still have the boring traits. West ham were quite open at the back. An attack minded manager may have seen us win 3-1 or 4-2, but second half was all about trying to hang to what we had got.
I am not a Pulis fan, and never will be, but we are a lot better than this time last year. Trouble is we seem to be happy to be a mid table non entity. No one other than the statisticians remember who finished 8th or 9th in a season. Fifty years next year since we won anything. Possibly one of the worst records of the teams in the top two divisions, and that is frustrating. We can't keep showing Astle's goal can we?
