West Ham suffer in refs decisions table

Teamtalk.com say West Ham have come off worst in refereeing decision this season.

They say only four decisions which we didn’t deserve went our way with 13  incorrect decisions against us.

The table leaves us nine decisions adrift while Manchester United and Leicester City top the table with seven more decisions in their favor than they deserved.


Teamtalk also reviewed the West Ham v Crystal Palace decisions on Saturday #

Foul on Bolasie for free-kick ahead of Palace’s opener v West Ham: Angelo Ogbonna was adjudged to have fouled Yannick Bolasie, with the referee awarding the free-kick which led indirectly to Damien Delaney’s opener. But much like Tiote’s challenge on Mbokani at Carrow Road, we felt there was enough in this to warrant a free-kick. Verdict: Incorrect decision

Foul on Payet for free-kick ahead of West Ham’s equaliser v Crystal Palace: Joel Ward was adjudged to have chopped down Dimitri Payet to give the Hammers man the chance to fire home his brilliant free-kick equaliser against the . This, however, was the correct call according to all five of our panel. Verdict: Correct decision

Cheikhou Kouyate red card v Crystal Palace: The Hammers midfielder was shown a red card for a studs-up challenge on Palace striker Dwight Gayle, with both managers agreeing at full-time the game-changing incident was “harsh”. Our panel, however, were split on this one, with two suggesting the player was out of control and was reckless, while three thought he won enough of the ball first and the angle of his boot meant he was never going to cause serious injury. A close one to judge, however, we marginally felt the Hammers were unlucky and a yellow card would have been sufficent. Verdict: Incorrect decision

  1. I sometimes think it just must be me being a bit claret & blue biased ruing decisions going against us , but it would appear that we really do have grounds for feeling a bit hard done by !

  2. Thought the same that maybe I was only feeling hard done by & it was pretty much across the board but this does show we have had the sh#tty end of the stick many times more than most clubs.That’s good,I don’t feel like I’m dreaming up irrational thoughts now.Well no more than usual,lol 🙂

  3. Saw this when a geezer posted it on Wetpants earlier.Sorry,We Are Hardmen.com,ha ha.
    Does point to us getting some rough calls.Done & dusted now though.Move on to the next match,nothing will change points wise.

    • Yes you can’t beat a group of 50/60 year old men still acting like hardmen,lol.Rippling those muscles virtually,lol.Will they all get gang leather jackets with WHTID Gang on the back,lol

      • Lol,West Hams equivalent to the T-Birds out of Grease.But instead of putting a comb in their pocket they can put their false teeth in there before they go into battle 🙂

  4. Careful what you say boys or The Hardmen will hunt you down,lol.Comedy Gold.I will never drink in the pubs after the match now.Too scared with the Wetpants Hardcases about,ha ha lol 🙂

  5. Hahaha,which pubs do I have to avoid.I don’t want to run into The Wild Hogs,lol Funny movie The Wild Hogs actually 🙂

  6. Now, why doesn’t that surprise me. Proves two things, one we are not considered anything more than just a makeweight club and are treated accordingly.
    Two, had we had our fair share of calls, we would be comfortably in the top four by now.
    Back in the days when I followed boxing, there was a standard accepted fact in British boxing circles…that no home grown boxer would ever win in the U.S. Unless he knocked his opponent out.
    If we want to defeat the elites at their own game we have to beat them so decisively that no ref can defeat us with favoured calls

  7. I suppose Villa are up there because even the officials have taken pity on them for being so sh#te ::)

  8. Haha,you are risking life & limb lads,take it from someone who knows & came out the other side to relive the experience,lol.Once the Lidettes are on your case you have no hiding place.They will hunt you down like a pack of rampaging chihuahuas,haha 😀 😀

  9. Exactly what l been trying to say Chaz. Upsetting the established order of things will not be easy. But instead of moaning, groaning and wringing our hands in grief every weekend, lets focus on ourselves and concentate the things we can do to improve our lot. Noone is going cut us some slack. lt is what it is.

  10. Unless we moan nothing will ever be done. We can just get on with it and the same thing will happen again time after time. We need to moan and get people to take notice or every time we are in a tight game we are going to drop points. If someone keeps treading on my foot on a train should i not say and get them to stop?
