Unfortunately we couldn´t hold on to the lead against West Ham yesterday, and although we were pushed backwards towards the end of the game I feel that we were the better team. But it is not easy to play games in the relegation battle, all the teams are fighting like lions and there´s a lot of tension in those games. We scored first, and I’m glad Jason Roberts was the one who came first on that nice cross from Brett Emerton. We have never done particularly well at Upton Park, therefore I am pleased that we got one point yesterday, it might come in handy at the end. And it was so good to be in the starting XI again and play 90 minutes, and for me it was important to play simple and try to work hard throughout the game and I feel that I managed to do that.

On the train home from London I had the Norwegian TV2 with me and did an interview with them, but in England you have to have a permit to do that on the train. And obviously Øyvind Alsaker in TV2 had not sorted that out and almost got arrested, which was hillarious :) hehe
