Much to the delight of Hammers' fans it seems.
31 Aug 16 / 22:48

FOOTBALL - One Hour To Go
I've poured myself a glass of milk and have a pack of Jaffa Cakes at the ready to get me through the last hour of deadline day.

FOOTBALL - Pulis Clipped in Sack Race Betting
Just looking at the first Premier League manager to leave post market to see if the transfer window has had any effect.
Looks like it has, with Tony Pulis clipped in to 2/1 favourite with Hills whilst Pardew and Guidolin have both been pushed out to 6/1.
Have to say, West Brom don't look to have done much in the way of good business.

31 Aug 16 / 21:21
FOOTBALL - Everton or Spurs
It's difficult to see there being too much business left to be done at this late stage, even the bookies have taken down odds on Moussa Sissoko's next club with Everton reportedly in the box seat over Tottenham.
The phrase 'two bald men fighting over a comb' springs to mind, with Newcastle fans desperate to get the Frenchman off the books and can't believe their luck at the £30m quotes being banded about!
31 Aug 16 / 21:15

FOOTBALL - Game Set and Match
That's it at Old Trafford as the final whistle goes. Man United win 2-0 and in truth they played some nice stuff. Southampton had some chances but lacked any belief in front of goal. Six points from six for Jose.
19 Aug 16 / 21:51
FOOTBALL - Fizzling out
81st min - The atmosphere at Old Trafford is now akin to that of a library with the game all but won for the home team. Southampton far from disgraced but they are lacking some cutting edge to be honest. #Blunt
19 Aug 16 / 21:40
FOOTBALL - Mata OFF
75th min - Long misses another chance for Southampton, meanwhile Juan Mata comes off for Henrikh Mkhitaryan which now means I have to learn how to spell his name. Annoying
19 Aug 16 / 21:34
FOOTBALL - LVG Who?
I wonder what Louis Van Gaal is doing right now? He is probably watching the Hockey final to be fair on the other side. He wont want to watch his Man United team playing with the attacking intent they are showing at the moment.
19 Aug 16 / 21:30
FOOTBALL - Saints On the Ropes
United all over Southampton like a hot rash here. Chances for Martial in the box and it feels like a third goal is near. Charlie Austin on for Steven Davis for the away team.
19 Aug 16 / 21:26
FOOTBALL - PogChance
64th min - That was a great chance for the big man. He rose high and un-opposed from a corner but Pogba could only head it over the bar. Big Chance. United on top here.
19 Aug 16 / 21:23
FOOTBALL - Unbelievable Scenes
An hour gone at Old Trafford and in near unprecedented scenes we are yet to see Marouane Fellaini elbow a single player yet. It really has been a remarkable night for the Belgian so far.
19 Aug 16 / 21:18
FOOTBALL - Another for Zlatan?
Zlatan not really in the game in general but he has popped up with both goals tonight and bet365 make him 5/1 to be the next scorer in this one as he searches for his first hat-trick in England.
19 Aug 16 / 21:11
FOOTBALL - 2-0 UNITED!
51st Min - Zlatan makes it 2-0 to Man United from the penalty spot with ease after Clasie tripped Shaw in stupid fashion. A stonewall pen that one. Easy as for the Swede.
19 Aug 16 / 21:10
FOOTBALL - Action!
Great start to the 2nd half as Tadic has a goal ruled out at one end before Martial has a shot well saved at the other end. Nice flow to this half in the first five minutes or so.

FOOTBALL - 2nd Half Underway

FOOTBALL - FNF Review
So far Friday Night Football has been a solid affair although it should be said that it has been very similar to Super Sunday and Monday Night Football up to this point in that it is a game of football.
19 Aug 16 / 20:51
FOOTBALL - Half Time
Thats the end of the 1st half at Old Trafford. United go in 1-0 up and probably deserve it but it has hardly been a classic Friday Night so far. Time for Jeff Stelling to add some casual non tie wearing fun to proceedings during the interval.
19 Aug 16 / 20:47
FOOTBALL - Poor Defending
Just having another look at the United goal. Rooney had time to nip home and put his kids to bed before knocking that cross in for the Zlatan header. Shocking defending from the Saints.

FOOTBALL - Jose Pleased
That goal has pleased the Special One with Jose Mourinho now prowling along the touchline like he has just won an Olympic medal for Portugal.
19 Aug 16 / 20:41
FOOTBALL - Saints On The Drift
United go 1-0 up and the betting for the match has of course changed drastically now. United now as short as 1/6 with Coral for the 3 points. Brave punters can get 18/1 about an away win.
19 Aug 16 / 20:39
FOOTBALL - GOAL ZLATAN
36th Min - Out of nothing a cross comes from the right from Rooney and there is the man we pointed out earlier. Zlatan makes it two from two this season with a lovely header and United are 1-0 up. Jose liked that one.
19 Aug 16 / 20:37
FOOTBALL - Scuffed!
32nd Min - An early ball from Tadic puts Long in but he scuffs his shot and it trickles into the hands of De Gea. Perhaps the best chance of the night so far that one. #DaisyCutter
19 Aug 16 / 20:33
FOOTBALL - Acrobatic
29th min - Some nice play by United down their left ends up with a dink into the box and a flying overhead flick thing from Zlatan. Whatever it's called, it went wide. Better from the home team though.
19 Aug 16 / 20:30
FOOTBALL - Saints Chance
26th min - A quick turn and a shot from Shane Long inside the box just whistles past the near post of David De Gea. Saints very comfortable at the moment. Still 0-0.
19 Aug 16 / 20:26
FOOTBALL - Anyone fancy Zlatan?
Zlatan scored 11 goals against Claude Puel during his time in France. The big Swede is currently 11/8 to hit the back of the net this evening.
19 Aug 16 / 20:23
FOOTBALL - Saints Chance
Southampton go through the United defence like a hot knife through butter there. Redmond gets in but his cross is narrowly too far in front of tadic at the back post. Jose probably touching cloth there.
19 Aug 16 / 20:20
FOOTBALL - Romeu Injured
Bad news for Saints. Romeu hobbles off to be replaced by Jory Clasie in the 11th minute. Claude Puel looks like he has swallowed a wasp at the moment.
19 Aug 16 / 20:12
FOOTBALL - Cagey Start
A pretty quiet first few minutes at Old Trafford. Mourinho caught on camera scribbling down some notes. Our best guess is that he has just written 'Dear diary........ I Heart Zlatan'.

Not long until kick off and for those of you who fancy a tickle, Man United are out to a best price 8/15 to claim the three points. Saints are 13/2 for their 3rd successive league win at Old Trafford.
