Re: ⚽ Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United: Match Thread

I don't think we were as bad as some are suggesting. Lots of our players played OK, it's just that none really had the storming performance we needed, and we had little cutting edge. In the end it came down to a set-piece and a goal on the break for them. There wasn't much in it apart from that - th...

Re: 2019/2020 Relegation Thread

The last time we won at Chelsea we were relegated.

Despite our win, I’d say we could still just as easily be relegated as finish 6th or 7th. Not really any dreadful teams this season, but also fewer very good ones.

Re: West Ham United v Tottenham Hotspur: Match Thread 23/11/2019

All I can see is Rice and Noble vs Tottenham. The rest of our players are either not good enough or have no balls.

We are one of the three worst teams at the moment, make no mistake about it, and unless something changes that’s exactly where we will finish the season.

Re: West Ham United v Tottenham Hotspur: Match Thread 23/11/2019

Awful and could see it coming. Rice can’t always be there to bail the defence out.

Yarmolenko has been anonymous, Anderson isolated and Haller dreadful. Only Nobes and Rice keeping us in this.

Bloody hell Haller’s touch is absolutely atrocious. Is this really the same bloke from a couple of months back?

Re: Other PL games 28th-30th

Arsenal are pretty bang average but Aubameyang and Lacazette are too top strikers and likely to make the difference between them finishing mid-table or top 6. In contract Man U have scored more than 1 goal once in 15 games, that is a truly staggering stat. That being said I still doubt we’ll finish...

He needs to start scoring more goals to justify the price tag though.
For goodness sake, he’s got 3 in 6 matches. A rate of one every two matches over the season and he scores close to 20 goals.

Re: ⚽Oxford United v West Ham United: LC R3 Match Thread

Just watched the highlights - absolutely shocking defending for the 3rd and 4th, and not great for the 1st either. FIWW, I watched the 2nd several times and I reckon the scorer was offside, but even then the defence were a shambles, PabZab had pushed up with the rest and was holding a line, then th...

I've now got a bad feeling about tomorrow's match against the USA. Thanks West Ham.....
I bloody well hope not. I'm going to the match tonight with my American mate...

Any other Hammers in Kobe for the match by chance? Might wear our away shirt since it's pretty much the only one t-shirt I have.

Re: ⚽Oxford United v West Ham United: LC R3 Match Thread

Watching the goals, Roberto was about as useful as a cardboard cutout that had been soaked in water. He was poor, but not the reason we lost tonight. Look at the "contributions" from Balbuena, Masuaku, Fornals, Diop and Zabaleta on those goals...completely useless. I really hope we never ever play ...

Re: On Carlos Sanchez...

Right who is ready to come back on this thread and say he's not that bad and shouldn't be called crap? He is a really terrible player. I said this before, but I almost don't care who we play as a back-up defensive midfielder - Zabaleta, Balbuena, Cardoso, some player from the youth team - Carlos San...

Re: Manuel Lanzini (New Contract Signed)

Hard hat on. Can’t see it being a huge loss. Think he’s overrated on this forum. Struggles to influence games, seems to only impose himself in the latter stages when (if) the game gets stretched. Easily knocked off the ball. Don’t get me wrong, happy he’s in our squad, but others will step in and s...

Can't believe lanzini is missing. Any optimism I had has now drifted off. I've got my usual west ham pessimism sorry folks.

I’ve seen about two tries reviewed prior to this game in this World Cup so far.

England have had two reviewed in the first 25 minutes. The second one was clearly a try but the ref still reviewed it, hmm...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

England somehow getting the toughest pool again with France & Argentina. I'll be happy enough to see anyone but the Kiwis win it. Seemed like that when the draw was made, but I’d say it’s now perhaps the easiest group. Australia, Wales, Fiji Ireland, Scotland, Japan, Samoa New Zealand, South Africa...

If we play like we did against Villa I think we'll lose this one.
We won’t and we probably won’t.
