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 in the 1st half some of the team had the wrong mentality, as if it’s just a cup match so I don’t need to put in 100%. 
OSlow first half unfortunately has crept into our game all too often of late. Depressing.
O Bit too many ‘bad nights best forgotten’ at the moment though
O Lacklustre hammers inept refereeing
O  The way the players gave up when it went to 3-1 was horrible to watch
 O Can’t believe that no one seemed to realise the threat Son is! And how many times did we keep farting about with the ball in front of Adrián? Talk about tempting fate!
O Have to question Pellegrini’s starting line-up. No direction and off the pace. Son and Erikson the difference.
O Only bright spots were Diangana and Rice, I hate leaving a match early but the 3rd goal knocked the stuffing out of the team, at 2-1 we were looking good for the equaliser.

  1. It was a derby and a very lackluster performance. ……. i suppose with so many new faces, they dont yet understand the passion expected.
    My views are whenever we play Spurs, everytime West Ham look like building an attack, the Spurs players commit a foul and slow the game down. The referee rightly gives a freekick, but this is constant ‘professional fouls’ and action should be taken. No matter how well or not we play there is little point in having a game plan of moving the ball quickly if the opposition kicks your legs from underneath you. Poor refereeing didn’t cost us the game our inability to score did that but if you stop the ball being delivered, having superman won’t get us goals or win us games.
