Anyone know where I can watch the post match MNF analysis? Recorded the repeat of MNF aired earlier but it just shows the match.

Just can't get over how much pace/power/flair we now seem to have, I hope we don't get any injuries because watching us at full strength is really exciting, Leicester have a decent midfield but it was deleted from the game, even before going down to 10 men. Really looking forward to Palace now :eyes:

Unfortunately couldn't go last night but the atmosphere sounded like it was rocking.

Not got to much to say about the game other than what has been said already but I thought we were :champers:

Also, don't know what those in the stadium heard, but there didn't seem to be any booing during the taking of the knee which was nice to see.

2 - Michail Antonio and Saïd Benrahma last night became the first players in @premierleague history to both score and assist a goal in both of their side's first two games of a campaign. Hammertime.

What a stat.
Love it :hamm:

Could hear a fair few pockets of it pretty clearly where I was sat.

As much as I have a major issue with anyone doing it, it was good to see that there were clearly people booing/clapping it within close proximity of each other and everyone just let each other get on with whatever they were doing. Feel like early days in that stadium it would have turned into a bit of a flashpoint.

They still seem a pretty grounded bunch, all things considered.

Orangecity23 has a nerve calling Cresswell a snide little **** when they've had Vardy "winning" penalties for years.

Leicester fans sound magnanimous in defeat, to be fair to them. We just had too much power and guile for them last night.

Same, problem with booing is that it's really hard to drown out with clapping.
Cheering night be better.

Personally, I think that if it is dividing the crowd like this, they should stop the kneeling. Clearly not everyone is on board with it (myself included).

From dmayne7

"Do people actually think West Ham were really good? They scored some good goals and some decent play at times but were generally very average. It's just that we were abject."


Right O, if you say so fella. :crylol:

Last 3 games v Leicester City, Played 3, won 3. Scored 10, conceded 3.

I fully expected "But we've got lovely owners, we've got a £100m training ground. West Ham is owned by Burke and Hare and its run by Witchypoo from H R Puffnstuff, they have prefabs at their training ground and they still have Billy Bonds playing for them in the no 16 shirt and he's 74 years old and David Moyes is from the Jurassic age! " Instead it was mostly well reasoned and complementary, no fun at all.

100%. In fact, its nice to see a fairly balanced approach to the outcome, and in fact it was rather complimentary, and their frustrations were more in house. Leicester are big time, and the fans still retain a lot of self awareness as to where they came from.

The fun is in comparing it to April's comments... they appear to have grudgingly accepted WHUFC are a decent side after all.
