Joey O'Brien: Aiming for winning return to action at the Hawthorns

The defender was part of a Hammers side that saw a half-time lead overturned when old boy Joe Cole equalised, before James Collins put through his own net.

The east London outfit now visit the Hawthorns to take on a West Brom side seeking their first win after a run of three straight defeats.

"Our aim now is to get back on track against West Bromwich Albion," declared O'Brien.

"We want to take the points but it is a hard place to go and they have a good home record.

"Hopefully we can get a result but, as you saw against Liverpool, the top teams can produce little bits of magic and you are suddenly behind.

"I thought we played some decent stuff and created some good chances particularly in the first half down the right with Matt Jarvis. We looked good and that is what is disappointing because Liverpool did not play us off the park."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
