West Ham are a disgraceful mess

Moyes knows the importance of a strong midfield

West Ham are a disgraceful mess.

We have seen no worse or shameful performance since the Avram Grant days and then it is close. The manager David Moyes should make his next tactical move  by walking into David Sullivan‘s office and asking for his P45.

West Ham are a disgraceful mess

It really is quite impossible to put into words how appalling we were this afternoon but the biggest comment came from the thousands walking away from the stadium at half time with thousands of empty seats staring Sullivan in the face at the end.



If that doesn’t tell him what to do about the manager NOTHING WILL!

West Ham were carved  pieces and worse as  Arsenal side took a humiliating 4-0 half time lead and it was just as bad in the second half.

Any hopes we might have made it a terrific three wins over the north Londoners were fantasy as we fell apart in front of a capacity crowd and a vastly superior team.

Saliba opened the scoring with a header despite around nine Hammers players being in the penalty area. But the writing had been on the wall earlier when  a few minutes earlier  Areola needed to make a wonder save from Trossard.

Saka should have had a couple in the 37th and 38th minute, heading and firing wide before Areola brought down Saka, received a yellow card and was beaten from the spot by the brilliant Arsenal man.

But it was to get a whole lot worse when first Gabriel and Trossard added two more before the break when booing rung out around the stadium.

And TV cameras showed thousands of Hammers fans walking away from the stadium produce the most horrendous of displays if indeed that’s the right word.

It got no better in the second half when Moyes was seen looking utterly confused and clueless as Trossard completed his hat-trick and Declan – of all people the sixth.

Dec absolutely refused to celebrate and then was subbed, leaving the pitch as sad as any of us have ever seen him.

Don’t worry mate – you made a great move!

  1. Sullivan simply doesn’t have the balls. We’re stuck with Moyes until divine intervention gets involved.

  2. Everyone involved in the game keep telling us “What more do West Ham fans want?”. Maybe, just maybe, today they got the answer to that condescending, stupid remark. Absolutely disgraceful display.

  3. I’ll settle for five consecutive defeats (even 0-6) if that’s what it takes to get rid if Moyes at the end of the season. At the end if the day, we’re not going to qualify for Europe, we’re not going to win the Europa League and we’re not getting relegated. It’d be worth it.

    • I totally agree. Even then I doubt the board would get rid of him. So painfully obvious that one day his set up to defend a draw and talk the opposition up and ourselves down would culminate in a defeat like this.

      Totally sick of seeing this week in and week out.

  4. Why doesn’t Moyes have the decency to resign and accept the blame ?

  5. The headline is an understatement…….
    We were much much worse than that……..
    How can the board even contemplate giving Moyes a new contract !!!!!!

  6. The Tea lady could do a better job. Potter certainly could. Chelsea was a poison chalice. West Ham wouldn’t be. The basic team is pretty good, it is the morale and the tactics. A half good Manager could steer things away from crisis.

  7. Spot on Vossem . Disgraceful rubbish. Controversially I think Ward Prowse is a liability. He is slow ,gets caught in possession , cannot defend and our set piece return has got worse , not better . H flatters to deceive . Exactly the reason no other big club came in for him .
    If Moyes had anything about him he would resign instead of waiting for his pay off .

  8. Headline is 100% correct by the way
