Re: VAR - yes or no ?

Tottenham score a goal which was controlled by Alli’s arm. VAR check it, put the wrong decision on the screen and then still give the goal. It’s an utter farce. The moment Sokratis got away with that handball against Aston Villa, you know VAR is just going to be an inconsistent disruption.

Re: ⚽ Everton v West Ham United: Match Thread

I’m guessing Yarmolenko didn’t start because of his games for Ukraine, but by not starting him we not only dropped one of our most in form players, but someone who has scored 3 goals in 3 games against them (also got one for Dynamo Kiev against them). Fornals and Lanzini playing together today was j...

Re: ⚽ Everton v West Ham United: Match Thread

Of course Goodison is a hard place to go, but that was a damp squib of a performance. There was a real lack of fight from the players. Everton had conceded 7 in their last 3 home games, with 2 defeats and a late squeak past Wolves. We should’ve been turning up and piling the pressure on a manager w...

Rubbish from start to finish. So many non performances out there that I cant even be bothered to analyse each one. Rice pathetic for that last goal.

Re: ⚽ Everton v West Ham United: Match Thread

A disgusting performance...we have made a team in the bottom 3 look like the current champions. Can’t pass, leaving gaps everywhere, can’t create anything.

The worst performance since Everton at home :shock:.

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

It’s a **** result and hurt more as we’ve blown the chance to to go 4th, but what sort of standards have been set if Yarmo and Noble were poor yesterday? I don’t think either were.

Re: Grady Diangana

It’s one of those...there’s no guarantee he’d be producing this sort of consistent form in the division above without the exposure to top end Championship football that he’s had, so loaning him out was the right decision. Unfortunately for us the injury to Antonio means we could probably do with him...

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

We need Antonio back...just don’t have his pace anywhere else.

Disappointing to not score more against a team with a back 4 including Joel Ward, Gary Cahill and Martin Kelly given the attacking talent we have.

Hopefully Marky will stop with the ‘drop Yarmolenko for all away games stuff’. An amazing performance from him both attack wise and defence wise.

30 goals in 8 Premier League fixtures between us two. Though should be 29... We have to try and bully them more than these and Brighton do us, and be better at set pieces. They are a massive danger from them. Not only from H Wilson and Fraser taking them but the likes of Ake and C Wilson attacking t...

Re: 30 times in 49 years: that joke isn't funny anymore

When we got to the 2006 FA Cup final, we started off away at a Championship team before playing 4 Premier League teams en route to the final.

We should probably be happier with harder cup draws by the looks of it.

Re: Manuel Pellegrini West Ham United’s 17th manager

Defence is still a major headache. The expected goals against stats show we were a bit lucky to keep clean sheets against Villa and Man Utd. Not really... The Wesley header and the Mata chance count for a lot of the 1.47 and 1.28 for Aston Villa and Man Utd. We basically gave the pair of them one m...

Ironing Board, your man Moyes played a weak team in a QF at Arsenal infront of 7,000 away fans when Arsenal were there for the taking. Just as bad for me when from the outset you show you don’t care about a Cup game. It doesn’t seem to matter what manager it is or what Cup competition (Europe includ...

A lot of their fans claiming they don't like this game because it's a cup final for us? :D.

Maybe in the Fergie days...now I see this as a game we really should be able to win, and a defeat would be massively disappointing. Pretty far down my list of 'cup final' fixtures...

Re: Andriy Yarmolenko

Doesn't look 100% fit or completely confident at the moment. Given the injury he has had it will take time and I think we just need to be patient with him.

Re: ⚽ Aston Villa v West Ham United: Match Thread

I thought both teams looked like they had done their homework tbh. Nakamba and Engels really helped stifle us going forward. We were miles too slow in the build up for most of the game. Lanzini turning backwards a lot. They defended well as a unit and as soon as we took that extra touch or stopped, ...

Re: This weekend's matches (13/9 onwards)

How in the world after how atrocious Watford werein the first half did it end up Watford 31 shots to Arsenal’s 7? I think maybe Unai might be at the end of the road job wise. You can’t have performances like that. Arsenal are making a lot of individual errors. Despite being 2-0 up today, a defensiv...
