Carabao Cup defeat: The fans have their say

Getting turned over by Spurs is worse than depressing. Here ClaretandHugh’s  Facebook members vent their  feelings after we crashed out of the Carabao Cup to our fiercest rivals. O I’m taking that today was just an off day but that should not be happening in the derby!! Maybe it’s just me but I felt that […]

Ratings regular makes his point!

Ratings regular and ClaretandHugh Facebook member  SERGEY NOVYSH  gives his view on how the Irons performed individually. Adrian Poor distribution with his feet. Cannot be blamed for any of the goals though. 5 Ogbonna Total disgrace. Slow and unreliable. First and third goals are his responsibility. Juventus player and Italian international? Ha-ha-ha 3   Masuaku Got away with […]

Bad Irons night with just one saving grace

West Ham United 1 Tottenham Hotspurs 3 That was unacceptable! To be beaten 3-1 by a second string Spurs X1 after the heroics of Leicester was about as bad as it gets in our terms. The one plus was the performance of a young man who really does have the world at his feet right […]

Half Time: Hammers 0 Spurs 1

The Hammers started brightly with Grady Diangana at the heart of all that was good about them. The youngster made some dazzling runs, cutting inside and causing all sorts of problems but once again the killer touch was missing.
