It’s not often – if ever – we repeat precisely the words used elsewhere to sum up a Hammers performance.
But Mike Walters of the Mirror – a personal pal and friend of Cand H- has nailed it with his summary of the game against Swansea in today’s ‘paper.
Here’s how he saw it…anyone disagreeing?
Diafra Sakho had the last laugh after his last-minute winner turned the East end boos to cheers.
Until Sakho’s late intervention, this was the Taj Mahal of stinkers among monuments to tedium.
Last on Match of the Day is much too good for such pitiful dross.
There were two Ayew brothers, two Carrolls, a Fernandez and a Hernandez on the pitch, plus empty seats and restless natives. Everything except good football.
You can include West Ham striker Javier Hernandez among the malcontents after he was hooked, in favour of Sakho, 12 minutes from time – a decision greeted with mutiny in the bubble-blowing legions.
Chicharito sat in the dugout, muttering sweet nothings and shaking his head – but manager Slaven Bilic’s big call proved spot-on.
Poor old Swansea. They had never kept a clean sheet in 31 visits to West Ham, conceding 74 goals in the process, and they were on course for a second consecutive shut-out in an iconic London venue until Sakho met fellow sub Arthur Masuaku’s cross with a firm volley at the far post.
But West Ham made desperately hard work of it. They were absolutely dreadful for 45 minutes and any improvement after the break was marginal.”
Truly hard to disagree with any of that!
