Hammers thrashed AGAIN! Chelsea 5-0 West Ham

West Ham faced a severe defeat at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea’s dynamic offensive display led to a 5-0 thrashing, casting doubts on David Moyes‘ future with the club.

In a week where West Ham initiated discussions with the currently unattached Julen Lopetegui about possibly replacing Moyes when his contract ends in June, the team’s performance did little to show support for their manager. Chelsea secured another emphatic home victory, their second major win in just three days, and the five-goal margin was a fair reflection of their dominance.

Cole Palmer opened the scoring with his 21st league goal of the season within the first 15 minutes, followed by goals from Conor Gallagher and standout player Noni Madueke before the break.

Despite Jarrod Bowen striking the bar twice in the first half, West Ham’s defensive efforts were lacking. They conceded again shortly after halftime when Madueke assisted Nicolas Jackson for the fourth goal. Jackson scored his second near the end of the match, his goal standing after a VAR review overturned an initial offside decision. This capped off a dismal afternoon for Moyes and his team, marking the second occasion in three games where we have conceded five goals.

It’s difficult to see where Moyes goes from here. Without the comfort blanket of a European place next season, the remaining two fixtures could be uncomfortable for the man in the dugout who clearly has no Hammers future.

    It’s not difficult to see where Moyes goes. He asks to leave this afternoon.

  • Pete says:

    Moyes goes out the door and never comes back

  • Pessimist says:

    Mr Moyes if you have any sense of honour, you will walk away now and be remember for the good things you have done. Why lose that for the matter of weeks.

    If we can get a new Manager in now they can get used to the Squad and can begin to pass on their ideas and methods early enough that come pre-season we can start to move back to the positive again. Hopefully this will also give them a chance to look the side over and tell the Technical Director what is needed.

    Please do right by the club.

    Moyes is finished. Put the ****ing fork in dwarf. Do the decent thing for a change .

  • Ess_Bee says:

    What is that? Six thrashings this season?!
    4 wins in 25 games!?
    It is time Moyes left the club even though the players should also be made accountable for the thrashings. You can’t just blame Moyes. These overpaid Prima Donna’s should at least give 100% for the fans even if they don’t want to play for Moyes.

  • Paul says:

    Moyes have given us some great memories but he needs to go. For a defensive minded manager and getting thrashed again isn’t good enough. Usual formation, subs etc, why not let the youngsters have a run out today? Not just moaning about Moyes, the players need take a good look at themselves, pathetic performance.

  • Andy ⚒ says:

    Please people don’t forget about how David Sullivan is handling this .

  • Graham J Faint says:

    There is no forgiveness for the way we played today or for a number of thrashings we had had of the season. We are an embarrassment to the Premiership and football in general.
    I’ve followed our beloved Hammers for over 60yrs and have witnessed many a low point but this style of football is hard to watch or take.

    So, Forget Moyes and his defensive low possession style of play. Let’s concentrate on bringing in a Coach that can take us forward, going forward.

    Not sure Julen Lopetegui fits the bill though.

    One of the main problems with the first team squad is that it’s collectively far too old. WH have a pyramid of young teams who are playing really well. Unfortunately Moyes seems very reluctant to utilise this resource. The top teams like Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool regularly blood young players. Not one of our regular first team squad has graduated from the academy. Even Declan Rice wouldn’t have got a chance under the present manager. Past managers have regularly introduced academy players. Another shortcoming is our lack of possession, one of the poorest in the league. Players joining the squad must be bemused when they realise that one of our main tactics is to pass the ball to the nearest opponent as quickly as possible. We need a new man at the helm to rectify these shortcomings.

  • Oliver Burns says:

    Moyes should not be allowed back through the door tomorrow morning. If he is, David Sullivan should resign
