West Ham 3 Fulham 1 - Who Needs Bellamy?

West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola:
"We made it comfortable with the way we played, especially in the second half, it was excellent.
"I thought the match had a strange atmosphere, it was a bit flat at the beginning but we made it happen and I told them I was proud of them.
"It was like we were playing in a very silent place, I couldn't understand*), but the players came on in the second half they knew what they had to do and they did fantastically well, and we got out with three points well deserved.
"We took the goals very well, Fulham are not a team that concedes very much, so it was a big point for us."

*) Maybe it was Konchesky's stunning goal "with a swerving shot off the outside of his left foot into the top right-hand corner, his first goal since scoring for West Ham in the 2006 FA Cup final" (BBC match report).

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson:
"I thought West Ham deserved to beat us, we were far from at our best but the manner in which we conceded was very unlike us.
"We've been so strong defensively, and made so few mistakes, it was strange to see three in one game - maybe if you're going to make mistakes best to make them altogether.
"Today in general play against a skilful West Ham team, we contained them pretty well but it's difficult when you're playing good teams and go behind, it's hard to pull yourself back to parity."

Ich wäre auch froh gewesen, wenn Bellamy geblieben wäre. Und ich versteh noch immer nicht, warum er unbedingt weg will. Tottenham ist ein Team im Abstiegskammpf und bei ManCity kann's (im Falle weiterer Einkäufe) durchaus sein, dass Bellamy auf der Bank sitzt, während er bei WHU einen Fixplatz erarbeitet hatte. ???
