Great point for Hammers at Old Trafford

Manchester United 1 West Ham United 1

A great point at Old Trafford and as a bonus Jose Mourinho was sent off again by referee Jonathan Moss. The same ref sent Mourinho off when Chelsea lost 2-1 at Upton Park last season and Jose was taunted in the stand by royal supporter Danny Dyer. 

Finally a West Ham forward has scored this season with Diafra Sakho diving to head home Payet's free kick after two minutes. Collins lost Ibrahimovic for the equaliser, but listening to the match on Radio London it was a well-deserved draw and our fans were loud throughout — particularly the instruction to "f••k off Mourinho!" 

Darren Randolph had to make several fine saves most notably from Rashford and Lingard, but West Ham could have won it late on when Antonio brke fro his own area and sub Ashley Fletcher forced a fine save from De Gea. Sounds like Antonio had a great game on the right and Ogbonna and Kouyate did really well too. This result could be a significant psychological boost after the defeat at Tottenham as it's the first time this season WHU have taken a point off one of the top six. And for once I'm looking forward to watching Match of the Day.

I was going to ask who you were calling eccentric, but then I remembered I'm considering watching the reserves away tonight, and conceded you may just have a point.

Who are they playing? That's dedication. Apart from stattos, Whovians, groundhoppers and fans of obscure heavy metal outfits absolutely no eccentrics among our number….

Fulham, at Craven Cottage. Watching the reserves lose 4-1 as temperatures plunged below zero. Can't seen anything unusual there...

There's only one F in Fulham….

Does your butler know you're hear?

White wine, you only drink white wine. Although gluhwein would have been better.

Sakho out for 6 weeks, in yet another triumph for the best medical and physio team in football. The striker who has scored more than all our other strikers added together this season (one).

Two predictions:
1 - Andy Carroll will play either tonight or on Saturday.
2 - He'll get hurt and be out until 2017.
3 - See you tonight.

Here, obviously. (I got Jeeves to write that one for me. You just can't get the staff.)
