Liveblogging West Ham v. Arsenal, second half.

Cereal and Bacon… the breakfast of champions.

I’ve been watching Fox Soccer Channel now for.. erm, jeez, 10 years? And their commercials have gotten 100% better in the last year or two. But this commercial where they encourage the old and the stupid to send their gold jewelry in for some cash is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. Who is actually falling for this scam?

I think I’d like to see Adebayor come on, even if he is insane. Also, maybe Diaby for Nasri?

47′ Second half starts like the first… yawn.

50′ Almunia and Gallas stare accusingly at each other after they both make a hash of what should have been an easy clearance.

53′ Walcott is having a whale of a game, he puts the ball perfectly across the 6 yard box for van Persie and it’s an heroic clearance by Collins that saves West Ham from the goal. DAMN!

55′ CHRIST EBOUE… gives the ball away in a dangerous position twice!

57′ Collins with a clear foul on van Persie in the box. No call.

58′ The game is amping up, West Ham claiming a hand ball on every play, Song picks up a Yellow and I’m still not sure how we haven’t gotten a goal.

62′ Back and forth action now, there has to be a goal in this game.

66′ Diaby and Ade coming on, can they break the deadlock? Yep, Nasri, OH MAN, Walcott?  Why? He’s been f-ing brilliant. Aghhhh.

67′ Adebayor’s first action is… a wide open header nodded wide of the net. PROFLIGATE. How about an offside for an encore?

71′ My loyal reader has shown up! Hey Matt. DAMN! Robert Green is having a career game as he saves off a venemous left footed shot by van Persie. Free kick in a dangerous area…

73′ …and he hits the post! CHRIST…

75′ YES!!! Arsenal are really stretching to get the win and West Ham are countering well but it’s the perseverance of Adebayor and the lucky foot of Faubert who put Arsenal up 1-0. Now… can we hold it? Someone’s down injured and Gallas sneaks off to have a fag and calm the nerves.

79′ Adebayor! Oh man, so close, great pass from Bendtner puts the ball in to Ade who’s low shot is saved again by Green, the follow up is wide. PROFLIGATE!

82′ The Arsenal fans are in full voice now. Come on boys get a second.

87′ Arsenal are putting this one away quite nicely, keeping possession, frustrating the West Ham team. Come on boys!

90′ Sagna’s coming on?

90′ My nerves are frazzled… West Ham with a couple set pices at the end. ALL HANDS!

90′ ADEBAYOR!!! Way to take your time and just put the ball in the net. 3 points!

90′ Hold on Matt, I’ll look it up… Centenary Stand, the goal we were shooting at at the end there.\

Fin — Great sub by Wenger to bring Adebayor on, Man of the Match? Hmmm…; Tune in tomorrow for The Good, Bad, and Ugly.  I’m off to enjoy the sunshine and have a pint — it’s going to be 60+ degrees here.

    (These 11am (central time) kickoffs are the worst…too late for coffee, too early for beer).

    Dumb question: where is the away fan section at Upton?
