Regarding their dive for a pen and yellow card, did anyone here have a great view from that end of the ground?

Too far for us in the NS, so for a few seconds we were shit scared of a game changing West Ham goal.

The ref was emphatic and (a telltale sign) the Hammers players did not harangue the officials for long.

Considering West Ham hadn't conceded from a corner, AND we've not scored from a corner all year, that goal seemed too easy.
The last goal from a corner they conceded was against us which was also the last time we scored from a corner

Did West Ham try it? There was something along the same lines, but it led every time to us winning possession and attacking their goal. Zouma looked all at sea.
Yep, they did, albeit a poor imitation. We appear to have set a high bar in this respect - long may it continue. The commentary was particularly full of praise for the way we play.
About time too, iho.
We are (mostly) very, very good. :)

Pervis (I think it was) stops running and Bowen throws himself down waiting for contact which never comes. BUT he got straight back up and didn’t appeal for the penalty. Maybe a touch harsh but he was trying to “buy” contact and looked a bit of a tool in doing so. He was absolutely shit all game.

Edit: not at the game, watched on stream from multiple angles

Top team beats bottom team shock horror, with assistance from useless referees.
That wasn't quite it though, was it?

One down after 9 seconds.
Dominate the game, before going two down.
Gets back into the game but look set to only draw.
97th minute winner.

They'll be first up.
