West Ham 1 Queens Park Rangers 1

West Ham 1 Queens Park Rangers 1

Two more dropped home points in a game where we should, quite clearly, have taken all three.

Queens Park Rangers might have taken the lead but incessant second half pressure should have seen West Ham net more than just that solitary goal from the prodigal son, Joe Cole.

For this London derby, Big Sam chose to go with Marouane Chamakh up front but it was to be another new striker, Loic Remy, making his debut for Queens Park Rangers who was to grab the early headlines.

Remy latched on to an excellent ball from Taarabt to fire past Jaaskelainen. In all honesty, QPR looked the more accomplished side in the first half but Big Sam must have wound his troops up with a half time blast.

The Hammers came out for the second half fired up and were more-or-less dominate. Cesar, in the QPR goal, did well to turn away a header from Chamakh and Diame saw his follow up shot magnificently blocked by Hill before Nolan, pushing forward as ever, saw a header go narrowly wide.

Chamakh then had another opportunity but once again Cesar denied him. But our luck was to change with the introduction of Carlton Cole.

Cesar denied the substitute with a great save but Lady Luck was looking our way as the ball fell invitingly for Joe Cole to net his first goal for West Ham since returning.

Going for the winner, and three points, West Ham were once again denied by a block wen M`Bia blocked an effort from Reid, before late on, Joe Cole rounded the keeper but saw his effort scrambled off the line.

All`s square in love and war!
