A real end-of-term affair in which the highlight was the return, after a season long injury, of Luis Boa Morte who scored a delightful goal before criticising owner David Sullivan in equally impressive terms.
Manchester City equalised the Hammer's opener within three minutes when Wright-Phillips - all 2' 6" of him - rose like a salmon to head home. It was that type of day!
Around the goal action, it was mainly Manchester City who had the territorial advantage with the visitors nifty wingers exposing the Hammers frailities in both full-back positions. It really is time that this club started a season with decent backs and it will surely be something that any manager, be it the friendly little Italian or whoever, will need to address as a matter of urgency.
Diamanti, whose excellent back-heel had put Boa Morte in for the goal, clipped the post with a low shot and City had strong penalty claims waved aside, quite rightly, after Upson got a nick to a Johnson drive into the box.
Carlos Tevez got his customary ovation when he came on as a second-half sub and the Argentinian nearly spoilt the party when just toe-ending a shot over Green and the bar. Other than that though it was fairly tame stuff from two sides who were both probably hoping for something a little more from the campaign although, ultimately, at both ends the teams came up a bit short.
Boa Morte's request for Chairman David Sullivan to stop opening his mouth and putting his foot in it was unexpected but welcome sideshow before the crowds drifted home and the Martin Peters Tea Bar served up its last cup of Rosy for the season.
It's been emotional but I need the rest...
