West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green says he loves life at Upton Park but admits his future is out of his hands.

"We've created chances and when Scott Parker comes up with a wonder goal like that (to win the match), it makes a difference.

"You look at the Sunderland game which again was not a pretty game to watch, but it is about results, not performances.
