MIDDLESBROUGH manager Bryan Robson watched his side hit four goals past West Ham and then said it should have been eight. Two of Robson's summer signings, Emerson and Fabrizio Ravanelli, scored in a brilliant 4-1 win before a record 30,060 crowd at the Riverside Stadium. Robbie Mustoe and Philip Stamp also scored as Middlesbrough thrilled the crowd with some skilful passing and earned a standing ovation. West Ham managed to get one back through Michael Hughes with a brilliant 30-yard shot. After the show Robson said: 'We could have scored seven or eight goals if we had taken our chances. Some of our attacking play was excellent. 'Emerson scored a cracking goal and I was pleased with his overall performance.' West Ham manager Harry Redknapp said: 'We could not defend to save our lives. We had two midfield players and two central defenders missing. 'Middlesbrough were a good side last season and they will be even better this year.'
