sticks out, he's gone with as strong

It's for West Ham. The FA Cup, a

coming from him. It has been a tough
spell for the lad.
Very tough. He's
back to where it all began. He is
struggling for form. Been left out.
If he has aspirations of getting
back to where he wants to be, number
one for England, starting from
today, he's got to start and perform
better than he has been when he's
been in the first team. Too many
mistakes. That was his last league
game. Slow off his line. He commits
and gives the penalty away. Another
mistake, got to do better. When
you're having a tough time and you
get punished with mistakes like
that, but that ball should be in the
last rule. It should not be back
into the middle of the field. Gareth
Southgate has been very loyal to him
but regardless of his experience
he's got to play. If he doesn't then
he will be going to the World Cup.

organisation they have shown. Really
disciplined. Hard to beat. Of course
they've had a couple of bad games.
Think of the one at Everton. There's
Stuart Pearce there, he would like
to be out there. You will have games
where you are not quite at it. Only

time for a manager to stamp his mark

they are in a much better place. Of

points on the board to be happy, but

the lack of pace can be a problem in

That is why David Moyes is, in some
games, sometimes the style of play
is, you can only do what you can do
with the players you have available
to you at the time and I think
there's nothing wrong with that.

This is his 12th first team game for
West Ham. He made his debut four
years ago now, in an infamous FA Cup
third round tie when West Ham lost
5-0 at Nottingham Forest. They had a
League Cup final against Manchester
City all at the same time, picked a
weakened team at Forest, got
hammered 5-0, to give themselves a
chance. I think they lost 6-0 to Man
City. I don't think it endeared Sam
Allardyce to the West Ham fans.

There must be some disappointment
from the West Ham supporters. I know
they understand the timing and the

would show a bit more. They are
looking to get away with a draw. I'm
told Cullen will go straight to

in the first half. The outstanding

It was a poor game
but you've got to give all the
credit to Shrewsbury Town. They
worked hard, they were dedicated,
they were the team trying to push
forward and create chances. They
will be pleased with the draw but
there will be a little bit of
disappointment because there's no
way West Ham can play that badly
again in a football match. They were
terrible today and you just felt
that was the best opportunity today.
They thoroughly deserved another
bite at it but you've got to wonder.
West Ham were terrible.
