Geordie draw, Cheltenham defeated

Newcastle 0 West Ham 0
West Ham 2 Cheltenham 1 (Capitol One Cup)

We've been staying in an internet and TV-free cottage in Wales with no mobile reception, but did manage to find out West Ham's 0-0 score at Newcastle after standing on top of a hill in Llanidoes. While Matt's text from the Cheltenham game arrives the morning after the match once we've gone three miles down the hill from Llanfachreth: "Sublime Vaz free kick puts us 1-0 up, Diarra strecthered off at half-time. Man of the Match Morrison made it two on 46 mins, they score a pen givwn against Adrian. We missed chances, won 2-1." Sad news is that Diarra is out for the season - he could have been an important player if he'd had a run. Though four points from two games is a good start and now all we have to do is beat Stoke City who never win away. What could possibly go wrong?
