Is this our best ever bench?
One interesting aspect of Saturday's draw was the quality of West Ham's substitutes. We had Carroll, Nolan, Tomkins, O'Brien, Amalfitano, Cole and Jaaskelainen all warming their posteriors. That's seven players who have all at one point held down a first team place. Surely the strongest set of subs we've had in Premier League history and a good sign of the depth of the squad.
