West Ham 2 - 1 United

Brown Ferdinand Vidic Evra
Ronaldo Fletcher Hargreaves Giggs
Tevez Saha

It's unbeleivable but its true. United have lost to West Ham for the 3rd season running. Until the 77th minute the game was in United's grasp but Ronaldo's penalty miss somehow seemed to motivate the West Ham players as they stormed back to win the game.
After West Ham had twice gone close, United took the lead on 14 minutes when Cristiano Ronaldo finished off a flowing move. WestHam tried hard to level the score but it was of no avail, United defended well.
The Second half, or should I say the last 15 minutes of the game, condemned United to second place of the table. After Ronaldo somehow missed a penalty kick which if scored the game would have been dead and burried, the Hammers deservedly drew level on 77 minutes when substitute Anton Ferdinand rose powerfully to head home Mark Noble's corner.
And Alan Curbishley's side secured the win on 82 minutes when another Noble set-piece was met with a firm header from Matthew Upson.
OK, so United did ruin my weekend and Arsenal kept ruining it by wining 4-1 after being a goal down. But that's football I guess, STILL I beleive the league will be ours, I just hope Ferguson quits resting players such as Rooney and quits strarting out of form strikers (Saha today looked rusted). Overall I just hope Ferguson stops playing the 4-5-1 formation. It sucks, It's boring, and it's costing us points (6 overall). Come May Ferguson might curse these decisions, but it would be too late. Next Birmingham, bring them ON!

to be perfect all the time."
