Post-match views from the forum:

Mrs Bergkamp: “Lovely result and just what we needed and wanted. I actually prayed for 7 goals but 6 will do nicely. I’m pleased to see Ethan get minutes and for us to just look like we used to at our best. How on earth did we lose to this lot at Christmas?”

Moviegooner: “Best match of the season and one of the best away victory’s I’ve seen in years.

And to think, we’re missing: Jesus, Zinchenko, Partey, Smith Rowe, Tomiyasu, Viera, and Timber.

That Dubai trip did alot of good, scoring for fun. May it continue! Man of the match is a hard one, but for me its Rice!

Surprised Jorginho didn’t get any game time. Injury warming up?”

Bloon on the Tracks: “The interchange of the 4 up top was phenomenal today, so fluid.

West Ham were poor today but let’s no forget they were 10 unbeaten at home before today and we slapped them silly.

Ødegaard and Havertz were looking for Nwaneri every time they got the ball :lol: Nice to see them try to help the kid find his feet. He had a decent little cameo.

If I’m being picky we should have put a couple more past them, really boosted our GD.”
