FULL TIME. West Ham 3 Fulham 0.
Demel does indeed come off and West Ham youngster Hall is the man who will replace him.
And sadly that is the end of the game for Carroll, who is replaced to a rapturous ovation by Cole.
Carroll lunges into Hangeland to win a header and the striker has stayed down as a result. In the meantime, Tomkins replaces Collins in a West Ham change.
Second change of the game for Fulham as Richardson comes off to be replaced by Kacaniklic.
There's a Fulham change at the break and new boy Berbatov makes his debut in place of the ineffective Petric.
Kevin Jane writes: 'Well looks like good old Sam has done it again what a good move bringing Carroll to west ham can see them doing realy well this year now. Liverpool will be crying come december with no strikers.'
Philosophical words from Jeffrey Jackson, who writes: 'Great to see The Hammers starting so positively. Carroll's arrival has inspired them. They CAN play good football and a lot of people are going to end up eating their words if they continue in this vein. However, the season is long.....'
HALF TIME. West Ham 3 Fulham 0.
GOAL! Taylor scores!
GOAL! Reid scores!
GOAL! Nolan scores!
Confidence is also flowing in the Fulham camp as Alan writes: 'The fact Sam has put Carroll straight in shows a weakness in the Hammers attack. I can see the mighty Fulham controlling the game and winning by one goal whether it be 1-0 or 2-1. Would like to see Berba come on for the last 15-20 mins and net us a winner.'
Gabriel Sutton gives his two cents. He writes: 'I actually fancy a Fulham win here. West Ham were poor defensively against Swansea last week and Fulham look like a team that can score goals, they were unlucky not to get a point at old trafford. I'll go 3-1 to the Cottagers.'
A confident Iain messages in first, writing: 'I see West Ham winning 2-0 today, Noble and Carroll getting the goals.'
