Hammer's rue missed chances

Queens Park Rangers salvaged a point at Upton Park thanks to a magical display from their goalkeeper, Julio Cesar who made countless saves in order to keep West ham at bay.
QPR took the lead early on through a sublime Loic Remy finish after he was played through by a pitch perfect pass from Adel Taraabt. The pass was like a hot knife through butter as it sliced its way through the West Ham defence leaving new signing Remy and Hammer’s goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen in a one on one duel, of which Remy came up trumps, as he slotted the ball past the Finnish keeper with a first time strike.
Posterior to this goal, West ham were dominated in the first half as Remy continued to cause problems, but after the interval, West Ham came out all guns blazing as they camped themselves in the QPR half and battered the goal with shot after shot. QPR keeper, Cesar kept the R’s in the game as he pulled out save after save, whilst former Hammer Robert Green sat on the bench and watched in awe.
West Ham finally equalised through Joe Cole who opened his new account, as he slotted the ball home from two yards, after Carlton Cole’s header was kept out by the QPR keeper.
West ham defender Winston Reid literally played as a striker for the second half of the game as he had numerous shots on the QPR goal, the New Zealand centre back had one cleared off the line.
West Ham were once again denied a penalty as new signing Marouane Chamakh was rugby tackled in the box by a QPR defender. This of course left the Hammer’s faithful in a rage.
West ham now sit 12th in the league as they continue to slide down the table after an impressive start to the season, many fickle fans are now contemplating Sam Allardyce as well as their chances in the premier League.
With speculation currently rife as to whether Mohammed Diame will leave or not, Hammer’s fans are biting their nails as they eagerly anticipate the end of the transfer window. Andy Carroll is soon to make his comeback from injury, which will be a huge boost for the club, and hopefully for Kevin Nolan too, who has been out of sorts in the recent weeks.
