Having just watched the highlights what the hell was Slaven yowling about? The celebrations for the equaliser looked class too  :D

The referee I my opinion got all of the decisions right except their first goal Antonio was definitely offside and obstructed Foster. The so called penalties they wanted were not their players had a habit of going down too easily. Bilic lost a lot of my respect with his constant whingeing.

I noticed that on the MOTD highlights, especially from Foster.

The disallowed goal was the correct decision both for being offside and pushing Foster. Bilic was way out of order, the only contentious issue was a possible foul in the build up to our first goal but even that wasn't clear cut.

Lost a lot of respect for him today with his antics on the touchline, bloke should have been sent to the stands in the first half.

Always great to get an equaliser in stoppage time leads to some wild celebrations, feeling it a little this morning. Yes we got a little lucky but when in the kind of form we've been in lately you get a little luck on your side every so often and long may it continue.

As for those whining West Ham fans that see us as irrelevant they only have to compare the honours list of both clubs to realise they are talking out of their arses. As for style of play and those that say they wouldn't pay to watch us each week they need to look at the current league table as we have more wins, scored the same amount of goals and conceded less than them so thanks for the four points this season boys.

Just watched the big issues on MOTD. To my shock they didn't back West Ham! The ref got them all right. As for that penalty that wasn't given Snodgrass has proven over recent weeks to fall over in and around the box far too easily and he's been found out by refs.

Chadli looked disappointed to go off but handled it professionally - hope we don't pee him off to much by hauling him off early every week.

We fought well in the last ten minutes and before West Ham scored i thought we were beginning to look the more likely.

Gotta be a Johnny Evans goal?

Yes. Why they've credited  GMac with the goal I will never know. I couldn't even see a touch off him, if there was a touch it was minuscule.

Definitely Evans' goal.

GMac is in my fantasy team though, so every cloud...

I think Pulis decided to protect a point when we were winning.  By taking off our pace and flair surrendered our attacking threat and gave West Ham a much easier ride in the second half.  Their weakness is their defence and they looked vulnerable when we pressed in the first half.  Going forward, they aren't too bad so we allowed them to take control far to easily through our changes.  It also left Rondon isolated and ineffective. 

No surprise that they drew level and I felt it was inevitable that they would grab the winner.  We were lucky to get a set piece in the 93 minute to get us out of jail. At half time I still felt it was a game we could win and at the end I felt lucky to come away with a point.

The ref got all the major decisions correct except he seemd to miss the awful on Nyom near the end which at the time looked like a straight red but haven't seen any footage of it after.

Two managers who have thrown their toy's out of the pram in a week. Long may it continue.
Much better viewing than when they used to praise us after beating us.

If he'd caught Nyom, it could well have been a straight red

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?

Fletcher won our corner that led to the goal

Jackie on a wind up as per

No he isn't

Its a summary I agree with tbh.

He has given a balanced post with criticism and praise in equal measure.

Although a point away at West Ham is good on paper, I'm disappointed why we don't enough have enough belief in our own creative players. Chadli, Morrison and Philipps are quite capable of opening up defences of West Ham's standard, but TP doesn't want to risk a more open game. We virtually handed the midfield to West Ham second half and on the law of averages they should have beaten us. It's not as if we are in a dire relegation battle.
I'm genuinely worried that if this happens too often, the likes of Chadli and Phillips are going to get peed off and we'll end up like last season packing the team with holding midfielders with little or no support for the No.9.

Except our midfield was being over run in the middle as West Ham had changed shape.  I think we went a lottle too negative but at the time we took Chadli off we needed to try something.

He changed it because they had the freedom of the park down our left.  We actually had a decent ten minutes straight after that. 

None of Chadli, Morrison or Phillips had anything like decent games yesterday and TP was right to change things.

I'd have settled for  a draw before the game, they're a decent side with a couple of flare players but not so good at the back.
Its a great point if we can follow it up with a home win against Bournemouth next time out

Celebrated like a loony when the equalizer went in.

Absolutely brilliant feeling, made for a great return journey  8) .

He calls it Upton Park, most die hard West Ham fans call it The Boleyn Ground. Probably hasn't been going long judging by the fluff on his face.

In fairness I've met many dyed in the wool West Ham supporters over the years. I've never once heard any of them refer to Upton Park as the Boleyn Ground. Only really noticed it appear as a term in vocab' over the last decade or do.

Truth time DW, and purely as an aside, when you went to West Ham in years gone by did you refer to it as Upton Park or the Boleyn? I only ask as you are something of a traditionalist yourself. Well, when not forming plans for the Albion to move to Wednesbury of course  ;) .

Terrible from Pulis tactically, they looked terrible at the back and we should've got at them more especially at one up. The subs he made were criminal and just invited pressure . Lucky escape with the equliser but superb limbs at the end cant beat it.

Soul-less bowl of a ground. Thought we made good noise though.
