Shambolic. Gutless. Clueless.

Roll on May.

That's Huddersfield as good as relegated - they are 16 points away from safety with seven left to play. Goal difference makes it realistically 17 points, and need Burney or Southampton to get less than 5 points from their remaining games.

I wasn't entertained for the first 70 minutes one bit...

by the way that hand ball posted in the KUMB updates makes that one given to ManU in Paris so much worse.

What a spectacular shambles! We definitely have our West Ham back.

We’re definitely safe now too. When you think back to the first four games of this season, that’s none too shabby :scarfer:

I might have taken more enjoyment from the first 70 minutes than most because me and my dad were to busy laughing at how Very Very West Ham all this was. :D

Our defending is dreadful but we showed great character to come back and win that game.On a side not we have matched last seasons point tally with 7 games to spare! then with that horrible start thrown in while the manager and players had to settle in, coupled with the more entertaining football it isn’t all bad! come on guys show some positivity. :)

Regardless of the poor performance and who we were playing, we just came from 3-1 down with 15 minutes to go and won 4-3. These type of game don't happen for West Ham all that often. Enjoy it. (Imho)

Personally I am buzzing after that.
What he said.

It’s not often we’get the chance to celebrate that kind of comeback. Of course we were rubbish, but who cares?

Wasit just me or did we seem a lot more threatening with the substitutions of Icantbebotheredabitch and Noble?
Although Perez doesn't merit a place in the starting XI, he seemed a tad more interested than the want away Austrian, Nasri was so much more positive than Noble and we actually started to create a few more chances with his input.

Anderson had one of his do I don't I want to play.

If the starting XI was close to our best side we need some massive rebuilding in the summer window. I sometimes think the players have not understood Pelligrini's instruction.

I admit I watched it online and we just didn't seem to have a game plan, where as Huddersfield did and it worked nullify Anderson and we lack that spark. 3 points ids three points though and on we go limping to the finishing line. Roll on2019/20 season.

We were crap until Ogbonna made it 2-3.
Out musculed by a team rock bottom of the league who players wanted it more.
Momentum then got us the win.
Entertaining game and pleased with the result.
We were shocking for best part of that match.

We need to keep hold of Ogbonna as is the very personification of a West Ham player. He's either a 2/10 or a 7/10, frequently in the same game.

I think Anderson might benefit from a game or two on the Recaros as he looks half the player he did before Christmas.

The Oggmonster should play up front. He’d be far more effective than Arnautovic.

Well that was good fun!

Our back six in the first half were absolutely awful with Noble extraordinarily poor.

The only player who came out with any credit from the first half was Antonio IMHO and then he got subbed!

Second half was just a weird game of football. We actually played quite well but more kamikaze defending made it what looked like a lost cause.

A brave final substitution from Pelligrini somehow did yhe trick and the last 15 minutes was just crazy stuff.

Even at 4-3 up our defending was truly shocking with miskicks and scrambles
