  1. Three strikers on the bench and playing Ayew is just ridiculous.

  2. A yew playing – we’ve lost!!! Don’t know what Moyes is thinking. If he thinks Ayew is the best striker we have then he is in the wrong job.

  3. 😂 lofl, Moyes obviously doesn’t see beyond his empty glass ! He’s not seeing the bigger picture is he , he’s got nothing to lose playing sakho from the start ! Let’s hope lanzini comes to the party ! And the pea gets involved , forget ayew , he brings nothing to the team , Bournemouth are battlers , not a game for ayew , cresswell and the pea IMO, far too lightweight for this game , hope I’m wrong but the proof is in the Xmas Pud .😕

    • Agree Laz Sahko most rounded striker we have & what’s £50k for what we pay for Hart & Chic.
      And looks like Chicharito we be leaving w Sahko in Jan.
      Be nice to hold onto one of them.

  4. Delighted Adrian and Lanzini starting, cannot understand Ayew selection. For me it has to be either Chico or Sakho. I take a point now with that back 3 and Ayew up top.

    • Me too saw where he was hinting at maybe Hart starting. But Hart is ready to go no confidence & didn’t do well at Arsenal. Nothing against him but if he wants to go & we can offload him we use his wages.
      Since Sahko making £50k is a big deal if starts other wise £20k or £35k off bench but have #2 gk making £130k & Chic on bench making £140k makes no sense

  5. Crazy that Ayew starts again.Already missed 1 inside the 6 yard box to make it 2-0.3 strikers on the bench again.He will have a lot to answer for if we do not win this oneCannot see Hernandez or Sakho staying in January.

  6. Add to that the northern Muppet ref once again shows his dislike of us southerners, its constant from this ref and others , that aside we were lucky not to lose 7-4 , as I’ve often said , the problems are not gone , but Wilson just said its gone for them and not for west ham , basically said he handballed it in ! Madley should be banned for incompetent refereeing. !
    The Wakefield w@ n ker strikes again , FA need to stamp out bias refs by making some southern lads available instead of north of Watford , 😤 cheats who are not made accountable for their incompetence , cheats top to bottom !!😈

  7. VAR stops it , 😈

  8. Wilson should be charged for cheating in the same way Lanzini was. He knew he handed it. Arnoutavic is pet much keeping us afloat on his own. Imagine what we could do with another good player!

  9. Madley should be made to state publicly why he overruled his lino ? He just can’t do it ! Offside and handball ? He still overruled it ? He,s cheated ! End of really ? And as said Wilson admitted it and should be charged , as should the club for encroaching the ref !!
    Whether or not we deserved a victory this is gut wrenching for hammers fans ! Cheated again ? 😤
