West Ham 1-1 Stoke City

At last a Stoke game I could get to! Fair result overall as first half we played very well including a lovely goal by Walters. Second half not so great as we cleared the ball straight to West Ham players and invited pressure on us.

Good to see Palacios come on and he made some decent passes plus a good game from Ryan Shotton coming on for the injured Wilkinson in the first half. Crouch had a poor game as did Adam, with Etherington playing better than off late but sadly not a ninety minute player anymore.

Next up Fulham at home, followed by Newcastle at home, both games we need at least a point from each.

***Update: Seems Wilkinson has tweaked his groin and will be out for a fortnight.
