Disgusted fans speaking out at West Ham’s dreadful performances


Disgusted fans are speaking out at  West Ham’s dreadful performances and let’s be totally honest, watching West Ham has become the most awful chore.

After  desperately poor Premier League performances from which we have escaped JUST, with draws and being knocked out of the FA Cup by Bristol City there is VERY GOOD REASON TO MOAN.

Disgusted fans speak out at West Ham’s dreadful performances

Last night’s horrible performance against Bournemouth – saved only by the usual piece of Kudus game changing magic – was desperate viewing and the Lyon/Betis complaints about failed transfers made things so much worse.

The atmosphere in the stadium during the first half told us everything and the booing at half time even more so. We were AGAIN  thoroughly awful and I remain among those who believe nothing will change until Moyes is fired.

I can’t stand his brand of football which is robbing me of one of the greatest joys of my life – watching my beloved club.

And here is what a random group of fans from the Claret and Hugh Facebook group have to say:

  • Bournemouth should of been 3 or 4 up at half time we were awful again and the last 3 home games have been absolutely horrendous to watch. Sideways and backwards football. It really is a chore and it’s difficult for the fans to generate an atmosphere when we are so poor. When you look at the players we have it’s hard to see why we struggle to string two passes together while Bournemouth play some lovely football with a fraction of our budget? Moyes is so predictable and stubborn and he will never change but we have to be careful what we wish for apparently. 
  • Nearly 40 minutes before we woke up, not good enough!
  • No wonder the atmosphere in the stadium is so poor, the style of play is draining the life out of the supporters. Sideways, backwards, give the ball away. Potentially another two years of this.
  • Same now every game it’s just so poor and this is being heard now at the ground, no atmosphere at all
  • DM says ‘we didn’t play well particularly with the ball’ so we were good without it ….. is that what he’s saying? What sort of dumb statement is that? Surely it all about ball possession and being better than your opponent! Just saying!!
  • We used to fail gloriously, now we fail miserably
  • I despair. Fred Karno’s Circus springs to mind.

    “But you’re still 6th… cheer up!”

    That’s what I received from an Arsenal-supporting mate of mine. I get why outsiders would say that – they see the headlines (the league table) and aren’t interested in the detail… It’s very difficult to make them understand why we’re so cross, despite us having, on paper, the best period of our recent history.

    We are “awfully good”. An oxymoron if ever I heard one.

    It goes without saying that Moyes has completely messed up WH.
    He has produced unhappy players who with passion only should get an opportunity to play.
    But no, his preference of his blue eyed boys stand out like a sore thumb. No wrong that Bowen, Soucek, Mavropanos, Jwp and Kurt Zouma can do. And never do they get disciplined by the manager no subbed.
    Last night, Zouma made 3 ghastly mistakes, Mavro 2. Bowen could have created 3 goal scoring chances in the 2nd half alone, but simply “lost the ball” without blushing nor an apology. The midfield players hardly tackle … ie Jwp + Soucek, who simply give away passes regularly every week.
    We seriously and quickly need a new manager who can shape and discipline this team asap, before we lose further ground in our pursuit for Champs League football.
    Please go Moyes, your time is up long ago.
