The words of Talking Head's 80s classic 'Once in a lifetime' are circling around in my head after the first West Ham win at Anfield during my lifetime. This is not because i am a teenager, but rather that as a foetus during the last Hammers' win, i was unable to actually experience the outside world!
52 years of disappointment and then just when you weren't expecting it, WE THRASHED THEM!!!
For sure, this Liverpool side are not of the same ilk as previous generations, but none the less West ham deservedly seized the points as Slaven Bilic again outfoxed Brendan Rodgers.
Special congratulations for Josh Cullen who got to come on for 90 seconds to record his part in the softest Hammers win over Liverpool in decades. They won't all come as easy as this young man!
It was great to see Kevin Nolan's replacement Manuel Lanzini scoring the opener while Mark Noble has rediscovered his scoring touch also since the partnership with Nolan ended. Great to see Diafra Sakho back on the right sheet (scoring not rap). The one disappointment was the silly red card for Captain Noble - surely a case for a rescindment?
The challenge for Hammers fans is to decide how best to do this victory justice??? There may be some sore heads tomorrow morning!
