Hammers Chat boys tear into Irons display

“Horror…shock…disgust…beaten by a pub team, unacceptable” and far far worse.

They are just some of the responses to last night’s performance in the second leg of the second qualfying round of the Europa Cup.

Let’s not hide from the fact that West Ham United were utterly appalling and beyond the late arrival of the excellent Ashley Fletcher there was nothing to admire.

And worryingly this was another in a series of slow performances which shows us to be a mile away and more from where they were last season.

Here, the Hammers Chat boys pour it out – nobody is spared and there’s some special venom for Gokhan Tore described as “lazy” and a player the fans could quickly turn against as a result.

There’s some excellent views expressed here – give it a listen.

  1. Can’t be bothered ! Who wants fair weather supporters, people are expecting results every game, this is West Ham United the club I love warts n all . COYI

  2. Listened and can’t quite work out what they were on about,
    We should have controlled the game ?We did,
    We should have won by 2-3 goals ?we should of Calleri should have scored those him self,
    Until they scored they weren’t in the game only the odd break,
    The second half they sat back thinking they had done there job ?they had,
    With the right breaks we could have a a landslide victory,
    We made some silly errors,mostly in team selection,not the players but where they played,
    Swap position of Burke and Reid
    Tore and Antonio
    Maybe take Novedt or Obiang off and have Fletcher alongside Calleri
    But not much more you could have done,
    Personally I would have given Samulsun a run in place of Tore,who looks heavy and sluggish and not enjoying playing on the right,
    But I think there has been an over reaction to the sides display,
    We do not have the class in the side at the moment to inflict a big win against these sort of clubs unless we out work them and that is not going to happen with Tore,Obiang Novedt Reid
    In the side because they don’t play a high octane game,
    Calleri found the space to make chances but was a bit flustered opinion front of goal which does not bode well,
    Most scorers never fluster and make it look easy
    Sturridge Defoe Rooney
    All these would have scored a hatrick last night in his position and that is the sort of player we were told we were getting,
    Let’s hope he is going through a blank spot like some forwards do,

  3. It would be difficult to give Samuelsen a run out bubs.He is on loan at Blackburn for the season 🙂

  4. I think they made a lot of valid points bubs ?
    The out of Europe one with a big squad is a feeder ? Its frightening what one game can cause to the teams progress and confidence ?
    No we wait and see what happens ! This is going to go one way or another ?
    We need to just stick by them as we always have , and be realistic in our wishes ?
    Next 5 days are gonna be interesting now though ! Far to many players in the squad to keep happy and youngsters as well , as mentioned in the vid ?
    You didn’t get Jesus with the donkey did you old boy ? We need to hear a sermon to cheer everybody up Ffs !
    The suns out , its a new day and rads better get his nappy ready ( smiliey ) Bilic said Zara’s done today ?

    • Hang on a bit Johnboy,dont jump the gun.I want to see that we paid 25m up front,no loan deal before any nappy fitting is happening.It has to be 25m as well,not 24 or 22 lol 🙂

  5. Why doesn’t the video fit the screen?

  6. Last time he arrived in Germany to sign they changed the terms and I think his daddy aid no loan deals ?
    We might not be getting him but I am just getting to like this try before buy,
    Last year we got rid of Jenks, Moses and Emineke
    Tore can go back now,Calleri has no option anyway,
    Jesus does borrow the donkey when he picks his grapes,but no gave up in believing in the after life when I signed up to be a hammer,

  7. Johnboy is it because he had to cross the road ?

  8. I have to agree to some point that the guys made in the video, however I feel that is was a lot of doom and gloom with only 2 league games played.

    With regards to the result I’m not that worried as we are a club that is in transition, we are still learning how to play in our new stadium. I think being out of Europe, although is sad, is perhaps a blessing in disguise. Lets try to just focus on walking before running.

    Marcos Browne should have played after his decent cameo in the first game against Astra, he would have been a damn sight better than Tore. Calleri and Fletcher should have started up top, again this is after putting in a decent performance in the first game.

  9. FFS…..we have eight players out injured at the moment!!!!
