Into the last eight!

Burnley 0 West Ham 2 (Capital One Cup)

Never thought we'd get through this, but in the end a great away win thanks to late penalties from Matt Taylor and Jack Collison. As Sam points out we defended the last half an hour with a back four of Chambers, Ruddock, O'Brien and Potts against a side that's top of the Championship with two in-form strikers. It took the wiles of Nolan, on as sub, to finally win a penalty. Some valuable game time for Carlton Cole too. Though as the Guardian points out today we started with a strike force of Maiga and Cole, who have not scored for a combined total of 27 games! Good to get a result for a great turnout of 2000 Hammers fans. Should make interesting viewing on TV tonight and we stand every chance of landing a Chelsea or Man United in the quarter-finals.
