West Ham fans have been responding to this afternoon ‘s 1-1 draw at Swansea on the ClaretandHugh Facebook forum and website “Leave a Comment” area.
Despite a thrilling game and a cracking Andy Carroll goal, the majority appear to believe it was an opportunity missed.
Here’s a selection of immediate post match comments:
Neil Abrey As far as today was concerned I do not understand why we would start trying to defend a 1-0 lead with more than half the game left to play especially when we look a decent team when we play football. However, realistically we don’t want to qualify for Europe next year. We will need to sign Jenkinson, Song and Reid (or equivalents) just to stand still) and it is not as if any big money will be coming in from selling anyone. I don’t think we will have the squad to compete in domestic and European competitions.
PennsylvaniaHammer: As the season goes on, for me, it’s clear that Jenks and Creswell have been the biggest difference. Song, Sakho and Downing’s resurrection have all played a massive part but if we lost either of those two I think we would notice it more than any other absences
Lee Pearce Draw is not bad at all. Remember that winless run includes Swansea n Chelski away and Arsenal at home. Not easy games . . This “new team” is only in its first season. Improvement doesnt happen over night. COYI
Ricky Charlie Hebdo Peters why is the management team of the mindset to sit back on a lead .. surely the best form of defence is attack ….
David Head Sorry about the same old thing, but how much more mobile did we look when the teacher’s pet Nolan came off, he should be an impact sub at best, we have better players now. I bet Sam ships out Poyet to keep a place for Nolan in cm.
Martin Pacetti Nothing like sitting back though and waiting for them to level, how many times.
Alan Goulding Its Just not good
Richard Trezise My bet for Tuesday is a screw up and then lots of excuses and blame from the manager. Not one bit of it will be directed at himself.
