Kevin Nolan: During West Ham's recent defeat at Hull

The east London club have not tasted a league victory since the opening day of the season and currently rest 17th in the table.

They are yet to score an away league goal in three attempts and Nolan told the club's website: "We're creating chances and if we weren't creating chances, we'd be really worried.

"It's just about them falling to us now. It is inches rather than anything else. If we just keep doing the right things, we know it's going to turn for us.

"In the last couple of weeks, refereeing decisions have hurt us and it is massive because it could have been another couple of points on the board.

"We've now got five points after six games and we're just above the relegation zone and it costs us massively."

With Andy Carroll still sidelined, the Hammers have been working hard on improving Mladen Petric's fitness, with the Croatia striker having only made two league appearances so far as a second-half substitute.

But Nolan believes the 32-year-old will soon be fully fit.

He added: "Mladen is getting up to full speed with us and we've got Carlton Cole, who is going to join in with us soon in training.

"Hopefully we'll start creating more and better chances and converting them."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
