West Ham face depressing stats


West Ham face depressing stats

West Ham face depressing stats when they meet Forest this afternoon as after taking 10 points from a possible 12 in their opening games they have now  lost five of the following  seven top-flight games, including each of the last three. 

The BBC has also revealed that this is their longest losing run of games in the Premier League since they collapsed to five consecutive defeats at the end of 2022.

Worse still possibly is the fact that we have dropped points in all three league fixtures this term that have immediately followed a Europa League game (D1, L2). So we really should be aware that the Thursday/Sunday routine is a tough act to manage although as the manager said at his presser ahead of the game it is a desirable scenario to be involved in Europe.

It’s to be hoped, though that we can finish at the top of Group A and have a real break over Christmas and January.  But back today and David Moyes could draw level with Harry Redknapp who suffered 238 Premier League defeats as a manager should the Hammers be beaten today.

    Their goal.

    Soucek muscled off the ball. He’s done absolutely NOTHING, other than aimlessly run around and offers nothing. We’re again playing with 10 men.

    Zouma needs to retire. He looks injured all the time and couldn’t track back with his name to prevent a simple tap in. Mavro needs a run of games to build a great partnership with Aguerd.

    Moyes is once again the problem with his ultra cautious Crapball. Start on the front foot (but only at home, because pitches are, you know, different). Score a goal. Try to hang onto it and sit back. Safety first, boys. Invite pressure, rather than using it as a springboard to go score a second. Inevitably concede – after all, we invited the pressure – then look surprised having given away the momentum.

    It’s not the players. They have the talent. It’s the instructions they’re given to play safety-first, risk averse, sideways/backwards football. It’s infuriating.

    Soucek needs to be replaced by Mubama. Put Kudus on the left, Bowen on the right and put Paqueta in the No. 10 role.

    But of course he won’t – that’s far too daring and, yep, safety first boys.
